Amusements. THE OPERA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 27 August 1873
Amusements. TIIE OPEIA. Since last issue the operas of " Martha," the " Grand Duchess," " Maritana," and the "Ilohemian Girl" have been reproduced to very good houses. On Monday night Aubor's opera of " Fra Diavolo" wvas'pro? docod. It was an unqualified suocess throughout. Miess Alice May as " Zorlina" outshone herself, constituting this character one of the best of her performances. The other characters were filled by Meossrs. Beau moat, Lascelles, Johnson, Rainford, Farley, and Bell. Mr. Beaumont's " Fra Diavolo" has always been a favorite with the public, and it has lost none of its attractiveness. Mr. Lascelles as "Lord Alleash" could not have rendered the part more naturally, he was the self.conceited, pompous "Inglese Milord" to the life, such as used to make their native land a laughing stock before the middle class parvenues drove them from the field; his make-up was capital. Messrs. IEainford and Farley as "Boppo" and " Gin como" rendered their parts very suceessfully, as ...

To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 27 August 1873
To the Editor of the Adoertiser. Sir-The Legislature has voted the sum of £2000 in aid of the building fund of free libraries, and applications for a share of that grant will be received by the Chief Secretary up to the 15th September. TVe hare not got a " free library" in Heoidel berg, and I think it is high time that we made an ef'ort to establish such an insti tution amongst us. "Larrikinism" is spreading throughout the length and breadth of the land. Up to the present it has not made its appearance in Heidelberg, but we don't know how long we may be exempt from that curse. It has been said, and well said, "prevention is better than cure," and I don t know of anything more likely to prevent the development of larri kinism than a "free library." One of our parliamentary representatives is a member of the Cabinet, the other is secretary to the Treasury ; both of the gentlemen have a good deal of influence, and I am sure they would not hesitate to use their influ ence in our favor. ...

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 27TH AUGUST. DEPUTY REGISTRARS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 27 August 1873
AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDI)NESDAY, 27TrH AUGUST. DEPUTY REGISTRARS. CONOSTDEUAnL notoriety has lately been given to the manner in which Mr. Deputy Registrar Reid, of Ocelong, has been performing the duties which attach to his office. The attention of the Attorney General has been called thereto, and Mr. Archer, the Registrar-General, has been instructed to proceed to Geelong and report upon the whole case. Some of the M'elbourne daily newspapers have been making capital out of this case and have suddenly awakened to what they style the culpability of a practice which has been carried on for years under their very nose. We can venture to say that a similar system of registration to that carried on by Mr. Reid prevails through out the colony from. the Registrar General downwards, and this has been known to the authorities, who hitherto have seen no impropriety in it. Mr. Archer is the responsible head of his department, but does anyone for a mo ment suppose that he carries out the det...

Tales, Sketohes, &c. TIIE BIBLIOMIANIAC. (From the Englislhwonatn's Domestic MaSga zinc.) Fifteen years ago there were three students living the Rue Cassette, as in still more remote times there three Mus quoteers, and oven three IIoratii, and three Curiatii, though, thanks to what has been written by Niebuhr, improving on Do Pouilly and Do Beaufort, and by Sir G. C. Lewis in his inquiry into the credibility of early Roman history, the existence of these last is somewhat doubtful. Edward studied medicine, Fabian law; as for myself, I made water-color sketches, which I sold for three francs a-piece to the open-air picture dealers on the Place du Louvre, and wrote various articles at the rate of two francs a page for penny jour nals, reviews, and family heralds. I also carved monks' heads and portraits of fero cious gendarmes and Zouaves for whatever the generosity of the originals prompted them, or the state of their funds enabled them, to give me. One summer's morning, as th...
