Sketches with Pencil CUTTING DOWN THE NELSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

CUTTING I.) OWN THE NELSON. Ouk frontispieco gives a view of the work of cutting down, the old warship Nelson, which has been undertaken .on the .recommendation of Commander MandeyiUe, tor tno purpose of converting her into a frigate. It was tnougn* that tho old ship would be more serviceable for ^he,worK or actual defence if the top-hamper of her poop arid upper deck -were removed, by which she would be rendered lighter, and would, .present, a much smaller mark for the enemy's shot. When finished she will be armed with suitable guns, and fitted for sea. The work has been carried on alongside the Williamstown breakwater, and has employed a large number of shipwrights and others.

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1878. PROSPECTS OF NEW GUINEA EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

SATURDAY, APRIL 13, 1878. PKOSPECTS OF NEW GUINEA EXPLORATION. At a time when two prospecting expeditions — one froni Sydney and one froni New Zealand — are either on their way or in course of preparation, it is a matter of consider able importance to ask in what disposition are they likely to find the natives. The probable answer must be a most discouraging one. The relations between the natives and European visitors have for some time been steadily getting worse, and there is a possibility that we may at any time receive tidings of a catastrophe of the most serious nature. The numbers of natives who have recently been killed in the course of attacks on whites have been very large, and each one adds to the account of revenge which remains rankling in the minds of the savages. The account recently published in the Sydney papers by Signor D'Albertis of his last exploring trip gives a terrible enumeration of the lives that were taken in repelling the attacks of the blacks. In one plac...

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

The managers of the Theatre ? Royal have brought out the Irish dramas of ' Shaughran' and . 'Arrah-na- Pdgue,' with Mr.Wheatleigh in the jjrincipal characters. The performances of Mr. Wheatleigh have been noticed before, and we may now advert to the chief novelty of the occasion, the re-apjiearance of Miss Myra.Keinble. on the ?Melbourne stage. Of this young lady ' Tahite,' the . dramatic critic of The Australasian, said: — ' For as the comely Irish girl nothing -.could be more satisfactory than her performance on Saturday night. She has unusual advantages of face, figure, and voice. Sho is in the truest sense winsome. Botter than this, however, she has a gentle manner, froe from all affectation, and yet unspoiled by the least hint of gaucherie. She is naturally as distin guished from theatrically picturesque. Sho represents what you understand by unartificial simplicity ; she is entirely tftKher ease, and yet she never forces a situation. She keeps her place, but she^never foregoes...

SKETCHES ABOUT THE PALMER DIGGINGS. BY A VICTORIAN. No provincial town in Queensland has adAranced so rapidly as CooktoAvn. The town is admirably situated. It possesses a safe harbour, Avith deep - water aldng its shores, commodious Avharves, custom-house,- court-house.' police department,1 school of arts,- churches, two neAvspapers, and a municipality. There are three roads from Cooktown to the Palmer, the old road by Avay of Palmerville being the longest. The. new line, Avhen finished, by way of the Black Soil and the Conglomerate, ,Avill be much shorter, and Avill traA'el over better country. The other routes are simply packer's tracks. . There is, however, a good coach road, Avhioh extends as far as ByerstoAvn. On this line pack-horses must 'be brought into requisition, in order ito get from Byerstown to May town, the principal township on the Palmer.

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

GIPPS 'LAND. By way of illustrating 'our page 'of sketches in' Gipps Land, u district which is now made accessible 'to lovers of the picturesque by the opening of the Gipps Land Railway, we quote the following article contributed to The Argus by 'Traveller.' After men tioning that, by the formation of a the -new line ; to Gipps Land, 'the sound of the iron horse had dispelled theUiaze which1 has hung over its forest-capped mountains, its almost' inaccessible but beautiful, fertile valleys, its level verdure-clad-plains, and its pellucid streams,' the writer1 thus1 describes his journey :— ' The scenery to the stranger is altogether so novel, and occasionally so grand, as to absorb his entire attention. First he has 'the undulating grassy country between Oakleigh,' Dandenong, -and Berwick, gradually givingway to the forest as he passes PakenHam, and subsequently becoming less inviting as he approaches \ tlie margin of the great Ko-we-rup swamp, on the margin of which the Bunyip stati...

THE NEW SYNAGOGUE, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

THE NEW SYNAGOGUE, SYDNEY.   We present an engraving of the handsome structure recently   opened and consecrated in Elizabeth-street, Sydney, for the   purpose of a synagogue for the Hebrew congregation of that city. The building has cost about £30,000, and is built from the design of Mr. Howe, who has thus added to Sydney one of the finest buildings it possesses for the purpose, of public worship. The   Sydney Morning Herald gives the following description of the     building : — The frontage is 64ft. by a depth of 140ft., running   through from street to street. The style of the front to Elizabeth street is Byzantine, freely treated, with a slight introduction of   the Gothic spirit. The material of this grand front is built of freestone, from Pyrmont quarries, and is strikingly imposing. The frontage is divided into three features, the main and central one being flanked by two ...

THE NEW EASTERN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 April 1878

THE NEW EASTERN MARKET. That old, but by no means venerable, collection of buildings known as the Eastern or Paddy's Market has been removed to make way for the new market, the contract for the erection of which has recently been let by the Melbourne corporation. Fancy shrinks from the attempt to evoke any sentiment over the demolition of these dingy sheds. There was never a meaner forum than Paddy's Market on the face of the earth, for at one time it was a sort of a forum. Besides being used for ordinary market purposes, it has been the scene of many hot political meetings. Mounted on furniture vans in those precincts our shabbiest demagogues have uttered the silliest opinions in the worst possible English. However, for, some cause or another, perhaps because the place got too bad a name even for them, they have deserted it during the last two or three years. As a market it has been a failure. For many years past the citizens of Melbourne have been accustomed to hear complaints abo...

Sketches with Pencil SWIMMING MATCHES AT ST. KILDA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

SWIMMING MATCHES AT ST. KILDA. The stay of Miss Elphinstone Dick in this colony and the lessons she has given to ladies in the art of swimming have had the effect of reviving and materially increasing the interest in this highly tiseful and healthful pastime. JJurmg her two seasons at St. Kilda she has, we are informed, taught over 300 ladies and children to swim, has taken part in foiu* entertainments at Captain Kenney's Dathing ship, and has given two series of swimming matches for ladies and children at the .Victoria Ladies' Baths.
