THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 1878. DROUGHTS AND THEIR REMEDIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 March 1878

SA TURD A Y, MARCH 16, 1878. DROUGHTS AND THEIR REMEDIES. The drought, of which we gave some harrowing par ticulars in oiir last number, has fairly broken \ip throughout the length and breadth of the settled districts of Australia. Copious and widely-extended rains have fallen, and the whole face' of nature has been changed. The ground has been well saturated, waterholes filled to the brini, and streams again set running. And as a consequence, a mantle of green has spread over the country which a few weeks ago was parched to the last degree, and presented an aspect of utter desolation. As a further consequence, sheep and cattle have improved their condition, and are now thriving and fattening on country where they were recently perishing by hundreds and thousands. The change from continuous drought to rain has been a change from wretchedness of man and beast to comfort and smiling prosperity. A drought is not a visitation similar in kind to earth quakes and pestilences. Such a droug...

THE INTERCOLONIAL EIGHT-OAR RACE. This event, which had occupied the minds of the rowing men throughout Australia for some time past, came off on March 6, on the lower Yarra, in the presence of a very large number of spectators. The steamers Albatross and Rescue were fairly punctual in starting from the Queen's Wharf. The former had about 200 passengers on board. The Rescue had 130 passengers ; among them, was His Excellency the Governor, who was accom modated with a seat in the bows, inside the space set apart for the umpire, Mr. A. Nichols. A Rood many ladies were on board this boat. The starting place was fixed at the first dolphin above Stony Creek. Here the final arrangements were made. The Rescue steamed up the river, and was made fast to one of the dolphins about a quarter of a mile above the starting, place. The Albatross was just behind the starter's boat.

THE ACCIDENT TO THE S.S. CHIMBORAZO. The Sydney Morning Herald, of March 18, gives the following narrative of this untoward .occurrence : — Although the entrance to Jervis Bay is somewhat open, there are long jutting headlands on each side, which form most effective sheltering places for vessels, _.and'itiwas' only after steaming a considerable distance 'the Chimborazo was observed at anchor in one of these, called the Darling Roadsi Her ensign was flying and her, yards were squared, and at first sight there did not seem-anyihing particularly amiss with her, except that she wanted a coat of paint; but as the steamers approached it was evident that she was low by the head. From Captain Hall was obtained the following account of the accident: — 'About 11 o'clock on the morning of the 14th inst., as all the passengers were gleefully anticipating reaching their destination in a few hours, the Chimborazo, going at a high rate of speed, struck rocks at the foot of Point Perpendicular.

NEGOTIATIONS AT SAMOA, [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

NEGOTIATIONS AT SAMOA.: The following is a resumd of the proceedings at Samoa on the occasion of the recent visit of Sir Arthur Gordon as High Commissioner for Western Polynesia:— '' His Excellency had an interview with' the Taimiia and Fainule on February 13, the day after he landed at Samoa, and delivered an address, giving the answer of Her Majesty the ! Queen to the petition last year addressed to her to take .'these islands under her protection. His Excellency stated that (the ; vague proposal made was not such a one as she could ? seriously consider. It would be impossible for Her Majesty to{acceptj the onerous responsibilities of protection, without a corresponding right to direct the action and policy of those protected. The Queen, therefore, declined to accept the offer, but at the same time expressed,-- her, grateful, appreciation of the' feelings which prompted it, and her solicitude for the stability' and prosperity of 'the Samoan state. 'His Excellency desired sthat adv...

Sketches with Pen THE FLOODS IN THE YARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

THE FLOODS IN THE YARRA. A serious flood occurred at Melbourne on Saturday, March 16. From Thursday night until Saturday morning unusually wet weather prevailed, and the fall on 'Friday amounted to nearly 3in. of rain ; probably in the district of the Upper Yarra the quantity was still greater. Indications of a flood were noticeable early on Saturday, but as the raui had ceased, and there was no -wind to check the' rapid outflow of the waters from the Yarra into Hobson's Bay, few timely preparations were made to ward off danger. The flood rose with great rapidity, . and- by midday all the lowlands were covered. We have. experienced no such inundation since the memorable year of 1863. On this occasion , the water reached within 44ft. of the level then attained,- and the floodmarks of 1866, 1869, and 1870 were all covered. The 1 effects of the overflow were more severely felt at Emerald-hill than almost any other place. The hill is fringed by flats on the east' and north sides. Of lat...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

A great change has come over the aspect of political affairs since our last issue. By the good agency of , two or three hon. members, among whom Mr. Lyell, Mr. Munro, and Mr. Jenner are the most prominent, a compromise was eflected between the two Houses, by virtue of which the Council passed the Payment of Members Bill and the Assembly took simultaneous steps to pass an Appropriation Bill,. with the obnoxious item, t\ie cause of the dispute, omitted.

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

^^^^^JlfttaBHiiiiniimiitHHitstiissiillflil^P^llii Among the chief musical' events of the month is the production at the Opera-house of the comic . opera of the 'Merry Wives of Windsor,' which was brought but on March; -27. The Argus said of the manner in which the opera -was given : — ' Amongst the persons in the drama the Mrs. Fordof Madanie Simonsen stands prominent beyond all comparison. There is not any performance of hers within pur recollection which equals this as a fully developed, highly-finished, and lifelike study. It is so complete in this aspect, and so spontaneous in effect, that there surely must be a perfect sympathy between the actress and the character she represents. A bonny, buxom woman, full of high health and joyous spirits ; of honest heart and warm affections ; free from reproach, and keenly alive to fun — such is Mistress Ford as we have her now in Melbourne ; the animating spirit of the play, and the approved favourite of the axidience. In action, in speech...
