THE GONDOLIERS AT THE PRINCESS'S. The Gondoliers, or the King of Barntaria, the latest of 'Gilbert and Sullivan's operas, opened at the PrincoHs'a Theatre on' the 25th ult. Although hardly' as groat a success musically as the Mikado, Pat'euco, Tolnnthe and other works by these tnlented 'composers, still The Gondo liers will rank very high, the -music being light and tuneful, and the whole piece is magnificently staged and mounted. The following is a risumdni the plot :— Two young gondoliers, Marco and Giuseppe, .shortly after the aotion begins toko a couple of young contadine, Gianotta and Tessn, unto themselves as wives. A. pompous and . impoverished old .duke (of Plaza- Toro) i arrives with his wife and his dauglitor Casilda, ' who, it appears, hns been married while still in her crndle to the infant son of tho King of Baratarin.

NEMO, ME IMPUNE LACESSIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

,NEMO, ME IMPUNE LACESSIT. ...The ,, Australian ,, -hedgehog , or , porcupine [echidna) is not rvery often met with, in the bush now, but in the early days of, the colonies was numerous enough. . -It .is . about three times the size; of.., tan,;. ordinary -.English hedgehog, and .its. quills; are much ; larger, more re sembling ,,: those ,,; of .the, .real- -porcupine. It is met with in sandy and light soiled country, and .when, disturbed immediately commences to bury itself in the ground, using its four feet for that purpose with remarkable power. Once the echidna gets a hold it can't be dislodged unless by the exercise of great strength. In this way he proteots himself from his enemies, the bristly back being a proof against all assaults. In the pioture by our artist a dingo or native dog has surprised the echidna, and is snarling around trying to find a vulnerable point to attack. He might : save himself the trouble, for in' a few minutes the hedgehog will be safe in the arms of ...

MIMICRY IN THE ANIMAL WORLD. (Read before the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria, 8th September, 1890.) [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

MIMICRY IN THE ANIMAL WORLD. Br Rev. Geo. D. Hutton, M.A., B.So. (Read before the Field Naturalists' Club of Victoria, 8th September, 1890.) : ' The principal reason which induced me to take the special subject of mimicry was that, . in the course of reading on the results of the travels ot naturalists, no examples of mimicry were noted from Australasia. This, I believe, is not due to the faot that none exist, but beoause no attention has been paid to it. The term mimicry is now pretty muoh narrowed down to cases in which one species so closely re sembles another speoies in its form, in its colora tion and in its habit, as to be often mistaken for it, though tho, imitator and the imitated may belong to utterly different genera. In this paper I use the term as applying also to cases in whioh protective imitation refers to objects at well as living organisms. By a great many people the coloration of animal life is looked upon as something merely fortuitous, something or merely physica...

THE REALM OF NICOTINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

THE REALM OF NICOTINE. The crusade, against the use of tobacco during the last three centuries has been preached in vain. The consumption of the soothing herb first brought to Europo by gallant Sir Walter Raleigh, far from showing any signs of falling off, increases every year. . . ? . Nor is the use thereof restricted to men. The fair sex, whose nerves are much more highly strung, and whose hearts throb half as quiokly again, are finding that the weed first dedicated to England's virgin Queen is infinitely more effective and innoxious a sedative than either chloral or morphine. It is true that in the United States the prejudice against smoking i still remains, and there is a tendenoy to regard those who indulge in the habit as ' fast and i even immoral. But it is different in Europe. There not only the women of the people, but also a vast majority of the Empresses, Queens and Prin cesses of the world rest in the conviotion that life bears a more beautiful aspect when seen through t...

OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. DEER SHOOTING ON THE YARRA FLATS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. DEER ''SHOOTING ON; THE YARRA FLATS. It is now nearly 30 years since Mr. de Castella brought' the first lot; of deer into the Yarra dis triot. They were enclosed in what ia known an the Deer Park, a very stiff 5-rail fence paddook, lying about 3 miles outside Lillydale, between the Healesville and the . Lodge roads. High as the fence ia, for it is still standing, it proved of no use to keep in such- nimble animals as deer, so they soon jumped out and took to the bush. The oiroumatanoes of the country seemed to suit them, and now they have inoreased and multiplied to suoh an extent as to beoomb a positive nuisance to the farmers. Night' after night they will visit the oropB till .'regular traoks are formed. Nothing is safe from; them. Green crops, young fruit trees, turnips, everything of. an edible nature ' being attacked, and it is not what they, eat but what they destroy .wherein lies the loss to the farmer.

THE CALLIOPE GRAVING DOCK, AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

THE CALLIOPE GRAVING DOCK, AUCKLAND. Since tho dawn of., tho ago of steel in the. history of the art of shipbuilding, facilities for the examination and repairs of ships' hulls in diy dock have ? beeome an absolute necessity. In ... the ' old days,' whon wooden ; walls wore Britain's' boast, it was not of such vital import ance ; and records aro extant of very extensive' repairs .having, been .effected -to the hulls of ships by the' simple method of careening, and in -boiho ' cases even while the ships .operated upon . have 'been- afloat. The work of 'careening was. not diffioult, and all that was required for its successful accomplish ment was a sandy bench well, sheltered from tho sea and ' the wind. In Sydney Harbor is a small bay which possesses these qualities in perfection, and its name, . 'Careening Cove,' seems to indicato that it was in the early days of .tho colony used for the purpose described. The rigidity of iron and steel hulls, however, utterly, prohibits that treatm...

MR. HARRIE SMITH, STIPENDIARY STEWARD. When the question of appointing a stipendiary steward was first suggested tho man of all others who stood out as being best qualified to fill tho - office was Mr. Harrie Smith, and it will therefore readily bo allowed that the V.R.C. could not possibly have made a better selection. Mr. Smith, by virtue of his oxtonded experience, first of all as an amateur rider,- then in the respective rdles of * owner, stoward and V.R.O. oommitteoinan, has- devoted a life's apprenticeship to tho special duties whioh now devolve, upon him professionally. The cleansing of the Augean stablo could not . have beon entrusted to more capable hands, and if he does not Bucceed in succossf ully performing the func tions attached to the office of stipendiary steward it will be a difficult matter to find anybody who can.

AT THE V.R.O. SPRING MEETING. THE FINISH FOR THE CUP, Once more the great spring carnival of the Victoria Raoing Club has come and gone, and the Melbourne Gup of 1890, memorable as having the largest added sum ever raoed for south of the line, is a thing of the past. For the last month the horse has been almost the sole topic of conversation, and the chances of the various animals engaged in the mammoth handicap have been canvassed from Cape York to Wilson's Promontory, and from the coast line of 'West Australia to the eastern shores of Queens land. Even the strike has faded, -almost into insignificance for the ;timo being, and the fate of the marine j officers deemed of seoondary importance to the health and well being of Carbine,. Melos, .

MOUNT SEFTON AND THE SOURCE OF THE MUELLER RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

MOUNT SEFTON AND THE SOURCE OF THE MUELLEK RIVER. - \ The mountains of New Zealand' are an inex haustible well, from whioh artists are, never tired of drawing. The Southern Alps contain some of the grandest scenery in the world, and year by year attract thousands of visitors. The higher peaks are all but inaccessible, covered as they are by everlasting Bnow. The illustra tion under notice is from a picture taken at the source of the river Mueller, in one of the wildest spots in the eastern watersheds of the southern Alps. It is a weird looking spot, utterly deso late, with hardly a scrap of vegetation to relieve the eye. Huge boulders stud the mountain, sides, and the river rushes down the rook bound ravines with a thunderous sound, a fitting accompaniment to^the cold harmony of nnspeak- ' able nature. In the background we see Mount Sef ton wrapped in its white mantle, towering amongst the clouds until its loftiest summit ia hidden from view. ' ? ' ? ?

THE NATIONAL PARK OF AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 8 November 1890

THE NATIONAL PARK OF AMERICA. American dudes of both sexos wandering about the world have been sorely perplexed be cause Uncle Sam has had no huge ships of war with which to display his grandeur in foreign ports, and no ambassadorial residences in which Yankee heels might air themselves to advantage. When foreigners have made allusion to our poverty in this regard we have been forced to fall back upon the Yankee's retort, ' Yes ! but you hain't got no Niagary.' Luckily but few of those who taunted us were aware that , Niagara was simply located in the United States. But now we can throw back at the effete denizens of other lands 'the wonderland of tho globe,' bur National Park, in.whioh there is more of the marvellous sports of nature than exists in the entire outer world besides. We can tell ;. them of theso wonders, and can then say that ' these marvels are the nation's,- and that this park of over 3500 square miles is maintained and protected by the nation for the people, for the...
