THE ZOOLOGICAL -GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

THE ZOOLOGICAL-GARDENS. The Argus recently gave the following description of a visit to the Zoological-gardens for the inspection- of some newspecimens for the enrichment of the Acclimatisation Society's collection, which arrived by the Netherlands-India Steam Navigation Com pany's ship Generaal Pel :— The first to claim attention is a magnificent boa constrictor, which we have been privileged to interview. He wa3 invoiced to the society as 20ft. long, and we( were content to accept him as per invoice, as to verify his measurement with a yard-stick would have been attended with ' inconvenience, if not danger. In girth lie is about as big, at his largest part, as a man's thigh. When we saw him he was at rest coiled up in the most perfect and graceful convolutions, and would have seemed asleep, only that his head appeared slightly elevated from among his rings, and his eyes glistened in the semi-obscurity of his den. This has been specially made for him (sex assumed), and is 12ft. lon...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

At the Theatre Royal Mr. and Mrs. Bates have been playing an engagement, in the course of which they have appeared in a round of their favourite parts. - Amongst the plays in which they have performed are ' Caste,'1! 'Richelieu,' 'Romeo and Juliet,' the 'Merchant o* Venice,1' ' Richard III.,' and the 'Red Pocket-book,' the latter being an adaptation from the French in six acts of a wildly melodramatic character, in which virtue, though exposed to many trials and dangers, is ultimately triumphant, and viJlany is foiled and punished. The play seemed to give great pleasure to the audiences. Mrs. Gladstane and Mr: Orsay D'Ogden have borne the brunt of the representations at the Princess's Theatre. The romantic play of the 'Stolen Child,' also an adaptation from the French, was brought out at the Easter season, and was very successful. In regard to such plays as these, all that we need note is their degree of success, asvthey afford little to criticise, and still less to remember. The Ac...

MURDEROUS ATTACK ON A CONSTABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

MURDEROUS ATTACK ON A CONSTABLE. The North-Eastern Ensign, of April 19, reports:—The Eleven-       mile Creek and its neighbourhood, about midway between Winton and Greta, has long been famed as the resort of notorious cha- racters. It was a well-known occasional trysting-place of the bushranger Power during the committal of his exploits in this neighbourhood some years ago, and ever since that time the place has been looked upon as the nest of some expert horse-stealers, cattle-duffers, and general robbers. On Monday evening Mounted- constable Alexander Fitzpatrick, stationed at Benalla, proceeded to arrest a young ruffian named Daniel Kelly, who resides at the Eleven-mile, under a warrant issued from the Chiltern Bench, charged with horse-stealing. The young trooper rode up to the place occupied by Kelly's mother and her family, which consists of a brother named Edward and four young sisters, besides the culprit who was wanted. Daniel Kelly s...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

The difficulties between the two Houses of the Legislature havingbeensurmountedbyacompromisein which a surrender was made on each side, the Payment of Members Bill carried, and the Appropriation Bill (with the obnoxious item omitted) brought in and passed, Parliament was prorogued on April 6. It is- .not a pleasant-symptom of the working of our political institutions that the prorogation of Parliament is generally received with a sense of relief by the community at large, and there is general satisfaction that proceedings in which none of us take any pride, and which are often the cause of degradation and humiliation to the country at large, are brought to an end. The crisis and all its unpleasant incidents being passed, it is needless now for us to refer further to the address from the Council to the Governor seriously impugning his conduct, the address from the Assembly vindicating it, the corre spondence between the Governor and the President of the Council, the failure of the co...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1878. IMPATIENCE IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1878. IMPATIENCE IN POLITICS. The characteristic of colonial politics most apparent to an outside observer must be the eager impatience of hindrance or delay by which they are marked. The slow, patient perseverance which the English race have brought to bear upon their works of constitutional reform, as upon their more material labours, is with us utterly wanting. When we have decided that a change is desirable, 'we next want to realise it on the spur of the, moment, and fall into a ?violent rage with whatever places a hindrance in our way. Those who defend the existing state of things against the proposed change are accused of the worst possible motiveB, and are designated tyrants, despots, oligarchs, or whatever more terrible terms of abuse come to hand. Whereas political reformers of our mother country have been content to proceed by slow degrees, to propose their plans, and obtain for them a hearing, to bring them forward again at a convenient opportunity, and ...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. In an interesting letter to The Argus, descriptive of his ex plorations in the Northern Territory, Mr. A. W. Sergison ends with the following remarks on that important and promising region : — The experience of this journey has completely altered my opinion of the climate of the interior, compared with that of the port town of Palmerston. As soon as we got well away from Southport, we did not suffer from heat, flies, or mosquitoes, and we also saw the country in the worst season of the year. We found as we ? progressed we really felt the cold, especially at nights, and were quite uncomfortable from not having sufficiently warm clothing. The Bridge Creek country is Very fine, and . from its situation most suitable for the head station of any pastoral firm that might wiBh to be central for shipment, and to supply the local population. From thence to the Daly, after passing through the table land, nothing but running creeks were experienced, and country covered ...

DISASTROUS FLOOD AT SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 May 1878

DISASTROUS FLOOD AT SANDHURST. The local correspondent of The Argus writing on the evening of Good Friday, said:—Once again Sandhurst has been deluged   by flood-waters, and Friday, the 10th day of April, 1878, will long be remembered by the residents of this city. Yesterday it rained but little up to about 8 o'clock, when it commenced to fall steadily, and although it continued for some time, and several very heavy showers fell at intervals, the rainfall was only half an inch, and therefore it was not from the rain which fell here that the flood was caused. Around Kangaroo-flat and Crusoe, however, the inhabitants say it came down in sheets for about ah hour between 5 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, and continued to pour down in torrents nearly all night, 2in. having fallen in less than 12 hours. Many persons are of opinion that these floods are caused from the overtflow from the Big-hill watershed, but I fancy it's simply the number of channels cut for catchment, and which, w...
