LADY BOWEN FIRING THE FIRST SHOT AT THE VICTORIA RIFLE RANGES. Sketches with Pencil. LADY BOWEN FIRING THE FIRST SHOT AT THE VICTORIA RIFLE RANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

LADY BO WEN FIRING THE FIRST SHOT AT THE VICTORIA RIFLE RANGES. T.ATW BOWEN FIRING THE FIRST SHOT AT THE VICTORIA RIFLE RANGES. The nevr rifle ranges at Williamstown, which have been named the Victoria Ranges, were formally opened on Saturday, July 27, by Lady Bowen, who fired the first shot. They are situated close to the North Williamstown railway station, and contain about 300 acres of land, on which is erected a small house. The land was recently purchased by the Government at a cost of about £15,000, in consequence of its having been deemed advisable to cut Tip the old ranges at Sandridge into building allotments, and sell them. On the day appointed for the opening ceremony, at about half-past 12 o'clock, Colonel Anderson, CM. G., the president of the association, arrived on the ground, accompanied by his staff, and very shortly afterwards the vice-regal party drove on to the ground, and were re ceived by Colonel Anderson, Lieutenant-Colonel Rede, Cap tain Blaniiin,and other me...

AUSTRALIAN SKETCHES. SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1878. PHYSICAL AND MENTAL PROWESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1878. PHYSICAL AND MENTAL PROWESS. Oxtr cricketing* representatives in. England have, at any rate, no Teason to complain of want of appreciation and sympathy in their own country. Their doings have been watched with the closest attention and the most cordial interest. Their victories have been regarded as national triumphs, and the most satisfactory explanations have been discovered for their few defeats. Among the native-born population, especially, the feeling of pride in their achieve ments has been keen and warm, and every Australian .boy in this broad continent Las felt himself, a sharer in the conquests of the Australian cricketers. The telegraphic and mail despatches about their matches are read with a degree of excited attention far beyond anything regarding the Paris Exhibition or the Eastern question. It is con sidered that if at any time there was any. doubt about the physical vitality and stamina of the English race in Aus tralia, it must be dispelle...

Fine ARTS. SOME NEW PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

SOJIK NEW PIOTUHES. Four fresh Avater-colour drawings, from the untiring pencil of Mr. John Gully, have been on vieAv at Mr. Fletcher's art gallery, and they serve to sIioav that the range of subjects ? in Ncav Zealand is incapable of exhaustion. One of the pictures represents Mount Earnshaw apparelled in glory at sunrise; another, Manuka Island, on Lake Wanaka, bathed in a flood of saffron light at sunset ; a third, the superb range of mountains fitly named tho Remarkables, as seen from Halfway Bay; and a fourth, the same massive giants vieAved from a A'alley Avhich enables the spectator to appre ciate their bulk and altitude. A snoAvstorm is sweeping down the gorge, and this difficult atmospheric effect- has boon pourtrayed so skilfully as to convince you that the artist must liaAre studied it from nature. The rich and diversified colouring of the mountains has also been repro duced with remarkable fidelity. A Avater-colour drawing by M. Buvelot, depicting a scene at Bacchus Marsh...

MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

Thb performances of the rival pianistes, Madame Tasca and Mdlle. Olga Duboin, have been the chief events of tho musical world. We noticed these in our former issue and need only say hero that Mdlle. Duboin gave a second concert, which Avas more successful in attracting a lar^e audience than her first ; and that Madame Tasca gave her farewell concert on August 10, at the Town half, in tho presence of a numerous audience. On that occasion she gave a piece on the ToAvn-hall organ, in noticing which Tha Arc/us critic said : — ' Madame Tasca at once showed in addition to the many great gifts and acquirements which we haA^e already noted as belonging to her — for she is composer both in Arerse and music, as avcII as being a groat artist at the pianoforte — that she is an accomplished organist also. Her pedalling- Avas firm and accurate, her touch on the manuals assured, accurate, and.free ; her command of the swell artistic, and her combination tones such as might bo ' expected from one w...

SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

SPORTING The only event in the racing world to record within the r-eriod of our monthly retrospect is the Victoria Amateur Turf Club August meeting, which was held on August 10. There were five events on the card, the first being the Hurdle Race, for 'which 20 horses appeared at the post, Monk being entrusted with the bulk of the money invested, but he had to succumb to Rover, who tackled the favourite in the straight, Ohalker, on George Frederick, having done ?Rover good service by making the pace a cracker from the fall of the flag, and Monk curling up when the pinch came, Rover won easily. Half a dozen faced Mr, Watson in the Hunters' Stakes, and Uhlan, a slashing fine son of Smuggler, had the call in the wagering, bvit Mr. Thomas Watson's motint had numerous followers, and as the favourite struck the first fence and unshipped his rider, the son of the master of the M. H. C. judiciously waited Until' Dutchman had shot his bolt, and then won easily, Mr. Hector Wilson caining secon...

THE LATE REV. DR. LANG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

THE LATE REV. DR. LANG. The death of the Rev. John Dunmore Lang, D.D, at Sydney on August 8, removes another prominent actor in the early history of Australia. His career was more especially identified with New South 'Wales, where he had passed more than half a century, but he was also connected with Victoria and Queens land by the active part he took in the agitation which ultimately resulted in separation from the parent colony. Dr. Lang was not a grout man, not even a wise man, but by his energy, perti nacity, and power he was enabled to impress his mark on tho curly history of colonisation on this continent. Dr. Lung was born at Greenock in the concluding year of the last century. His fucher was possessed with the inspiration of dedicating his' son to the ministry. After receiving an elementary educatior in the parish school, he was sent to the Glasgow University, where, in the year 1820, he took his M.A. degree. He received the degree of doctor of divinity from the same Univers...

The Theatres. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

-0LmPt£d\\ There has been but little at the theatres this month to call for special notice. At the Theatre Boyal Mrs. Steele appeared on July 20 in ' Rag Fair' — a piece which failed to secure the most moderate degree of success. ' Black Sheep' and ' Leah the Forsaken' followed, in due course, after which the Duvalli sisters began an engagement in a piece of an extraordinary nature, entitled ' Wedded unto Death.' Of this piece ' Tahite,' in The Australasian, wrote : — ' It may be that ' Wedded unto Death' is a work or genius. Ana genius is always misunderstood. ±Jerhaps in fifty years or more it will be understood, and then if anybody digs up what now I am writing, it will be quoted as a curious instance of the critical beliindhandodness of this age. We can none of us do more than act according to our lights, and according to my lights this play is incom prehensible. It begins with a burial, and ends with an explanation which clears uj) nothing. Between these extremes there are grav...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

GOI-D AlfD THE GOLD-H1ELDS. The Argus in its last summary reported : — The principal item of gold-mining news during the past month was the report of the striking on the 22nd ult. of gold-bearing stone in/ the shaft of the Magdala Quartz Company's claim at Stawell. This company, as well as a number of others on Stawell, have been prospecting their claims for many years past at great expense, in the hope of finding some of the very rich reefs which several companies on Stawell have worked with very. great profit, and which from their extreme size appear to be almost inex haustible. The stone in the Magdala was struck in the bottom of the shaft at the depth of 19,8Sft. from the surface, and the discovery caused the greatest excitement, although it was known that it could not be proved for perhaps some months whether the stone would be payable enough for working. The fact that gold has been found in quartz at nearly 2,000ft. below the surface is, however, one of much greater importance...

No title Sketches with Pen. THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

THE MONTH. As the centre-piece of our page devoted to ' The Month' we give a portrait of that excellent comedian, Mr. J. R. Creville, of the Theatre Royal. Not, indeed, that Mr. Greville is in any sense of ' the.'month ;' he is rather for all time, and his laurels have a perennial-freshness. Mr. Greville has been a member of the ! Royal company 'for many years, and he is ac the present time as attractive and popular as ever. The charms of novelty have given place in Mr. Greville's case to those- of friendship, and old familiarity, which are found to be equally potent. His genial, unctuous humour is equally effective with all classes of theatre goers ; and while it excites the wildest merriment of the gallery boys, it never causes offence, to the most decorous domestic visitors to the more orderly parts of the house. That he may long delight crowded audiences by his irresistible drollery and comicality is the wish of every Melbourne playgoer. . By the last mail steamer . from our sho...

DISTRESS IN NEW GUINEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 August 1878

DISTBESS IN' NEW GUINEA. A telegram frora Cooktown, August 12, reported : — IT. M.S. Sappho hsis nrri* ed from Port Moresby, which she left on the 7th inst., wanting coals. Captain Digby reports that affairs at Port Moresby were bnd. Great numbers were doing nothing, and in a state of great destitution and misery from want of provisions. He had viaited the main camp at Laloki, and found all the men either ill or recovering. He says their state is most pitiful, with no work and no prospects whatever. From tho character of the country, as described by the diggers, there .seems to be nothing but denso tropical vegetation, with continual rain. There is no open country. The worst calamity that can befal Australians ia the discovery of gold, for working in such u climate and country will kill nearly all who go to it. He considers New Guinea unfit for habitation, except along the coast. As pas sengers the Sappho has brought five of the Colonist party, viz. : — E. Hanran, Ferguson, J. and W...
