I refer to John Howard Clark, editor, and one of the proprietors of the leading newspaper establishment of the colony. He died on Monday lust, in his quiet seaside home at Port Willunga, within sound of the swell of the ocean, whose treasures he loved so well.

SIR THOMAS ELDER, K.C.M.G. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 6 July 1878

SIR. THOMAS ELDER, K.C.M.G. We give a portrait of Sir Thomas Elder, who lately received the honour of knighthood in recognition of the valuable and distinguished public services he had rendered to the home of his adoption, Sou-th Australia'. Sir Thomas Elder is a native of Kirkaldy, Scotland. His residence in South Aiistralia dates a long way back, and he has been a member of the firm, of Elder, Smith, and Co. since its commencement, about forty years ago. This firm was instrumental, by making very large advances of capital, in founding the Wallaroo and Moonta mines and the Wallaroo Smelting Works. The mines now conjointly produce about £500,000 worth of copper per year, or one-seventh of the total exports of the colony. This was the proportion last year, when mining was at a low ebb, but in favourable years the proportion has risen to a third or a quarter of the whole. These mines are estimated to support directly and indirectly 20,000 persons. The colony owes to Sir T. Elder the i...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 6 July 1878

Parliament has been further prorogued until Tuesday, July 9, on which day it is summoned to meet for the despatch of business. It is felt to be necessary to call Parliament together to deal with various matters that are pressing for settlement, and it is hoped that it may be enabled to allay theuneasiness and insecurity which at present ruin the state of business, and render work almost unpro curable for the labouring classes. In; the meantime there are no signs of any rappi-ocJiemeiit between the two sides in , politics., ;The i disclosures made by the publication of the'; Gtpyernor^idespatches strongly irritated the Constitujional * party; wfiHe*- on the other side, Mr. Berry tells the community ithat the crisis of last session was child's play in comparison with the proceedings contemplated by the Government next session, and declares that property will be specially taxed to provide work for laboiuing men- ; and Mr. Longmoro, the Minister of Lands, threatens that the land tax wil...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JULY 6, 1878. RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 6 July 1878

SATURDAY, JULY G, 1S7S. RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. We can unreservedly agree with many of the principles laid down and arguments advanced in the circular addressed by the Bishop of Melbourne (Dr. Moorhottse) to his clergy on the subject of religious education. In declining to accept the responsibility of giving religious education, the state never for a moment wished to underrate its importance. Interested as it is in the morality of its citizens, the state cannot be indifferent to their receiving the religious education which, as an historical fact, has in all ages been the principal foundation of morality in the minds of. the masses of the people. Differences of opinion about the ultimate grounds of morality there may be many. It may be, and in fact is, discussed as a speculative question, whether a time may not come when morality may find a foundation of its own in the practical reason of man, and so subsist entirely independently of religion. But, as a plain obvious fact, we can all a...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 6 July 1878

The short season of Italian opera given at the Opera house is chiefly noticeable for the opportunity it afforded Miss Amy Sherwin of gaining a strong hold on the esti mation Of the public \ by her performances as prima donna. Miss Sherwin is Tasmanian by birth, and her great success in singing the difficult parts she undertook was rendered more gratifying to the pxiblic by the reflection that the victory was won by a young Australian lady. Her voice is that of light soprano, and it displayed a sensitiveness and power, and a perfection of; training, which charmed the audiences who heard her. The young cantatrice was aided by Signor Rosnati, Signor Paladini, Sighora Guadagnini, and Signora Fabris. The performance at the Opera-house on June 29 was noticeable for two reasons — the one, that it was the last of the opera season, and the other and more prominent reason, that the opportunity was taken of pre senting to Mr. Lyster — who is about to leave on a visit to England for the benefit...

THE LATE MR. JAMES PURVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 6 July 1878

THE LATE MR. JAMES PURVES.   We regret to record the death of Mr. James Purves, one of the   very earliest pioneers of the colony. He died June 17, at his residence, Glen Isla, Richmond. Mr. Purves was born in Berwick- on-Tweed, and came out to Tasmania at the age of 21. He arrived at Hobart Town in the year 1834, where for some time he practised his profession as a civil engineer. Among other works, he superintended the construction of the Perth-bridge. He came over to Victoria in 1837, and was one of the first, if not the first settler, to introduce sheep into the colony. The voyage occupied over a week, and the sheep were nearly famished on their arrival. Mr. Purves took up country in the Lancefield district, near the Hanging Rock. But after following squatting pursuits for a time he entered into business in Melbourne as   auctioneer and estate agent. He afterwards took up the Chintin station, at Deep Creek, and was also owner of Tootgarook ...

Wilks, having invited His Honour Sir Redmond Barry to make the presentations- Sir Redmond Barry, who was received with continued cheering, said he deeply felt the distinction which had been conferred upon him on this occasion. The Victorian Humane Society was an emanation from the great Royal Humane Society of England which had been founded as far back as 114 years ago by a small body of philanthropic men. Its operations were at first limited   to a narrow sphere, but the great principles of humanity on which it was based had caused it to extend its operations through every portion of the British dominions, and to find imitators in every country of the civilised globe. It was very gratifying to see such an immense attendance that evening — filling to repletion   a hall larger than any in many of the capital cities...
