SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

SOCIALITIES. An unfortunate large-hearted friend of mine married twice, and had a numerous offspring by each. His first wife was a practical woman who hated nonsense and aflec tation. and had no patience with people giving themselves airs. Not possessing the imaginative faculty, her children were called after tho family — John, Mary Anne, Samuel, Luke, Eliza Jane, and Sarah. 'When she departed this life, universally regretted, the mourner decided on a radical change, and selected for his second an impractical woman, who liked nonsense, was very affected, and had airs enough when put in motion (as they frequently were) to produce a heavy storm. The second had' tho ' poetic sentiment, and would never consent to condemn- . her children to prosaic names merely because her people before her had borne them. Her offspring, therefore, were christened Irene, Eyadne, De Vero, Zoo, St. Maur, and Canute My large-hearted . friend used to say that his family were a mixed lot. He had a voice, of c...

^^^^^^^^MJ^H!ifiHiJlUiiilSyiHilHMii{fl(^^^^'*''fl}ll We have been fortunate in Melbourne, in so far as we have hoard a variety of Madame Goddard's performances. In other places there has been great disappointment at not having the chance of hearing her at all. This great artist has not been entirely fortunate in her visit to Victoria. First of all there was her unlucky detention with the other j-assengers in quarantine when she first arrived here by the mail steamer ; then, again, after her return to this place from Sydney, there was the sudden and severe indisposition which' seized her at ,Geelong, and not only prevented her from appearing at her sixth concert in Melbourne, but was the cause of the break-down of all arrangements that had been made for her visit to Sandhurst, at 'which place a large number of subscribers were prepared .to have given her a most cordial reception. We believe it was intended that she should have visited Tasmania, but this, was not to be, although some ...

THE VICTORIAN COURT AT THE VIENNA EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

THE VICTORIAN COURT AT THE VIENNA EXHIBITION                     The illustrations which we present to our readers are from photographs taken during the great Vienna Exhibition. We may briefly mention that the plan of the whole building was that of an extraordinarily long avenue, running from east to west with transverse galleries crossing it at short intervals, and   having a direction north and south. The British section was located at the western end, between America and France, and occupied a considerable amount of space in the main gallery, together , with three transepts and an annexe. The most   easterly of these transepts on the northern side was devoted partly to India and partly to the British colonies — but with the exception of the Cape of Good Hope and Mauritius, the latter may be said to be merged in the exhibition ...

MASSACRE AT GREEN ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

MASSACRE AT GREEN ISLAND. We learn from the Cleveland Bay Express that Mr. Fitzroy Somerset, the police magistrate of Cleveland Bay, Queensland, held an inquiry in the police court, on July 28 and 29, touching the death of John Finlay, James Mercer, Charles Reeves, and "Towie" a Kanaka, who were killed by the natives while fishing for beche-de-mer at Green Island. The following is the statement of one of the survivors : — Daniel Kelly deposed, — I am a seaman, and belong to the Eliza ketch. On the 11th July I was at Green Island employed in beche-de-mer fishing. Thomas Smellie, John Cardno, William Smith, and James Steele were with me, and 10 blacks shipped from Cleveland Bay — five boys on the ship's articles, three gins, and two boys belonging to William Smith. There was a fishing camp on the other side of Green Island, about half a mile from our camp. There were James Mercer, Charles Reeves, John Finlay, and Towie (a Kanaka), three aboriginal boys, and one gin in the camp. We cal...

The object of the meeting -was to instal H.R.H. the Prince of Wajes as Grand Master of the United Orders. In the address to the Grand Master and Convent-General the Arch-Chancellor, designate (Dr. Townshend) said, amongst much that was proper to the occasion, this, which is always applicable, and should never be forgotten :-r-' We did not attach any superstitious reve rence to the scenes which had been hallowed by the Re deemer's presence on earth, nor seek to wrest them (those places!) from another nation.

THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

THE LABOUR MARKET. The demand for labour in nearly all branches of industry has been increasing during the last month. In the building trades good workmen are scarce, and full rates are easily obtainable by those who choose to work. The boot trade is at present dull. The high price of the materials has reduced the profits of the manufacturers, and an attempt has been made to lower the wages of the workmen. In the tailoring trade good workmen are badly wanted, and work has been deranged by a strike of the men in most of the shops in Melbourne. The matters in dispute, however, have since been arranged ou terms that appear satisfactory to both sides. The clothing factories are all in full work, and workwomen are in great demand. Domestic servants are becoming more scarce every day. This is usually the dull time of the year, and yet not one-half the orders ran be supplied. The native-born girls do not take readily to be coming house servants. They prefer earning half the wages at a fact...

A GOLD ROBBER SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

A GOLD ROBBER SHOT. An event of this character caused a good deal of excitement, on October 12, at Guildford. A young man named Win. Gilbert had been appointed by some of the shareholders in Mien's Free hold Gold Mining (alluvial) Company, Guildford, to act as watch man, for them, and acted as such on the night in question. About 2 o clock in the morning, Gilbert saw a Chinaman on the works near the sluice- boxes, and called out to- him to stand, or step back. The Chinaman, however, at once bolted into the bush, and was out of sight in a moment. The watchman did , not attempt to follow, hut remained where he was, and subse quently went on to the brace. He had with him a double barrelled gun, which he had brought for the purpose of making a ramrod during the night. It was not usual on this claim for the watchman to have firearms, but Gilbert says he was anxious v to have a shot at some rabbits as soon as daylight appeared, and therefore had it ready.. The gun was loaded with large sh...

THE SCENE OF A TRAGEDY IN FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

THE SCENE OF A TRAGEDY IN FIJI. The special correspondent of The Argus gives the following account ot a visit to the plantation of Mr. Burns, in Fiji, the scene some months ago of a shocking massacre : — 'A pull of three-quarters of an hour brought us to tho late Mr. Burns s plantation, which is now held by a party of Fijian soldiers, who have some captive mountaineers shut up in a sentry-box. This was a fine plantation, with a splendid house. The homestead cost altogether between £7,000 and £8.000, and now everything is going to rack and ruin, the cotton falling from the trees for want of picking. Fr«m the appearance of the house it would seem that Mrs. Burns made a desperate resistance. It had been Mr. Burns's custom to keep his foreign labourers armed, and they were in the habit of tiring at the mountaineers whenever they came in sight. This did not agree with the Fijian Government's views of a conciliatory policy towards the natives, and when Dr. Clarkson, the Treasurer, visited...

The following Hum marised despatch gives the main features of the budget : — ' The Treasurer's budget speech was one of the most satisfactory ever delivered here, and shows a most un exampled prosperity in the public nuances. Last year left a balance of £543,969 as surplus, of which £419,647 has been applied towards the liquidation of the public debt, leaving a balance of £124,322 to the credit of the current year, which gives an actual and estimated revenue of £3,249,135, and it is expected that there will be a surplus of £655,2S0.

Steps were immedi ately taken to organise a party to track the perpetrators of the outrage, and early in the afternoon some 15 or 20 horsemen, hastily armed and equipped, were on the road to the scene of the tragedy, while others were converging from various parts of the district to the same locality.

PLANTATION LIFE IN FIJI. Some interesting letters on the subject of the Pacific Labour Trade- have appeared in The Argus, from the special correspond- ? ? ent' of that journal, who has recently been investigating the matter at Fiji and the South Seas. We extract from his fourth letter the following description of the life of the labourers on Fiji plantations :— The life of a plantation hand in Fiji is easily -described. He sleeps in a thatched reed house like that of his master, and in mosquito curtains if ho lives in a district where mosquitoes are troublesome. Ho gets two good meals of yams a-day, which is quite sufficient to keep him in health with the bread-fruit, cocoanut, bananas, and sugar-cane ho can help himself to from the bush. [Two regular meals a-day is the . general rule, but Messrs.' Brewer and Joske, who have a large and prospering sugar plantation in Suva Harbour, give three meals a^day, and so do some other planters.] At daylight he is turned- out to work by the so...
