THE RETURN FANCY DRESS BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

THE RETURN FANCY DRESS BALL. The complimentary return fancy dress ball given to the mayor of Melbourne and Mrs. O'Grady, in acknowledgement of the Krimil civic festivity of August, took place on October 7, in the Town-hall. On this occasion fancy dress was not insisted on, but though a- considerable number of gentlemen were in plain dress, the appearance of the ball-room when the company had assembled was quite as brilliant as on the occasion of any previous entertainments of a like character in the same hall. I lie gueHts began to assemble soon after half-past 8 o'clock. HiaExcellency the Governor and Buite arrived at 9 o'clock, and they were at once conducted to the. portion of the north end of the hall set apart for them, Herr Siede's band playing the National Anthem. Sir Edwd. Creasy, the Chief Justice of Ceylon, who was among the expected guests, was absent in consequence of sudden indisposition, but Lady Creasy and her son were with t»e Vice-regal party. In the first set His E...

THE CENSUS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

THE CENSUS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. The Sydney correspondent of The Argus, writing on the above subject, says: — 'The registrar-general's report on the census, though completed in April last, has only just been presented to the country. It has been two years in preparation, but then he has had to work with a small staff, and so the colony has saved in money what it has lost in time. The whole cost of the inquiry has not exceeded £17,184. The general result has long been known, but we now get some additional details. Some few of the points may be of interest to your readers. One of these is that the native element is now decidedly dominant. Fully three out of five of our people are Australian born. Of course all the children are included in this calculation. Of the adult population which carries on the business and legisla tion of the country, the majority is still British born, but the coming race is more and more of an Australian type. Consider ing the sectarian warfare in which we are ...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

SPORTING Hunting and football have now given way entirely to cricket and racing, anr1 cricketers are very busy in anticipa tion of the arrival of Mr. Grace's team in December. The first match will be played on the M.C.C. ground on Boxing and following days, and the colony will, most likely ^be represented by 18 players only, and to judge by the great progress the game has made of late years, it is believed in many quarters that the colonials will make a good fight with the Britishers. In Allan they have a bowler of great merit, .and whose bowling, backed up by 17 in the field, will cause some of the English bats, and perhaps the great W. G. G. himself, sonie trouble. Then there is Cosstick, who is equal as a bowler to most English professionals. In batting the colonials will show tip well with such men as B. B. Cooper, Gibson, Kelly, Campbell, Conway, and Gaggin. In the fielding the colonials are strong also, and it will, be no Canadian or American team that Mr. Grace will have to c...

ANARCHY IN FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

ANARCHY IN FIJI. i Newsqf another ? armed rebellion of whites at Fiji, 'has 'been received in Australia by a vessel which left Levuka on September 8. This 'news is to the effect that, anarchy prevailed at Levuka, and that the whites were armed, and refused to pay more taxes. 1'rior to the dissolution of the late Parliament, supplies were granted up to the end of August.. The general election of members to the new Parliament, in which election the Govern ment has declared that the natives shall be allowed to vote, has not yet taken place, and consequently there is no Parliament in existence, arid a majority of the white settlers has for some time past maintained an uncompromising opposition to the Government. Early in September, the Chamber of Commerce at Levuka passed resolutions declaring that the Government had no constitutional authority to collect Customs duties after 31st August, and protesting against paying Customs duties until the meeting of Parliament; but in order to avoid...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

Mb. Dampier has proved to be a useful addition to the Theatre Royal company. He is the best of all the recent arrivals from England, and he has been the least placarded. He is not a genius, and he is not .without faults. But he is a good, careful, intelligent, painstaking actor. Moreover, he did a wise thing in making his fitst appearance in a character which suited him. Perhaps he has not quite maintained the level at which the part of Mephistopheles showed him, but if his Qthello was not quite so good as his Mephistopheles, his .Iago took nearly equal rank with it, and although his Buy Bias was over-melodramatic, his Carlos (in' The Sea of Ice') was quietly natural. More over/ he played very fairly the old Frenchman in 'Grimaldi,' and, in short, he has' shown himself so gene rally capable, that his continued connexion with the Royal company is a thing to be hoped for. Of Mrs. Dampier it is not possible to. say so much in the way of favourable comment. She is chiefly remarkable for...

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

FREEMASONRY. Concerning that 'Memorial' about which we havo had to make comment hiore than once of late, it will interest the craft generally in this country to know that the discussion of the subject is not wholly confined to ourselves. It is true that little of discussion can take place here, for reasons which will be at once understood by the Victorian brethren belonging to the Three Constitutions. The idea of an ' Independent Grand Lodge of Victoria,' like many others, is the outcome of the circumstances by which we find our selves surrounded, and the expression of that idea has beon heard in the- place where most of all it concerns us that its aim and object should be fairly understood. We are (in the Masonic sense) in the position of that well-known ' boy' who is well-grown and strong — one whom the pre paratory school can claim no longer— ^-a lad with big. joints, great appetite, and invincible, though vague,' hope in the future. Such a lad is always possessed with the noble ...

The only interruption to the production of opera in English during this term was when the Italian company of opera singers were here on their return from Adelaide, when they gave three perform ances, consisting of ' Un Ballo in Maschera,' ' Le Prophe'te,' and ' Mose in Egitto.' The following are the name3 of the works performed by the English company, which we give in the order of their production, namely, 'Barbe Bleue,' 'Bohemian Girl,' 'Grand Duchess of Gerolstein,' ' Satanella,' 'Maritana,' 'The Daughter of the Regiment,' ' The Lily of Killarney,' ' The Rose of Castile,' 'Martha,' 'Fra Diavolo,' 'Der Freischiitz,' ' Genevieve de Brabant,' and ' Cinderella.'

SAMOA AND THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

SAMOA AND THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT. Colonel Steinbergeu has lately visited Samoa on a mission from the American Government, the nature of which is plainly shown in the following communication from the correspondent of the N'eto Zealand Herald: — 'Whilst in the harbour of Pango Pango, on his last trip, Captain Millar, of the schooner Daunt Jess, was presented by the principal chief of the island with a document, by which he claimed harbour dues. Captain Millar Tefused to pay them, on the ground that the authorities there had not performed that which they had agreed to do in the document (a treaty between the chief and Captain Mend, U.S. Navy, subsequently revised by Colonel Steinberger, U.S. Com missioner, who is at present at Samoa, representing the U.S. Government for the purpose of annexing the Navigators Islund to America, and the making of Pango Pango a naval settlement and port of call). Colonel Steinberger stipulated that the chief of Pango. Pango was to buoy all the dangers in...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH, Singe the miscarriage of tho attack on the Francis Administration, to which we alluded in our last number, Parliamentary matters have proceeded quietly, although a fatal rage for talking which possesses hon. members has prevented any great progress being made with the business of the country. Some advance has been made with Mr. Casey's Amending Land Bill in committee. The measure increases the limit of selection from 320 to 640 acres, and in certain cases does away with the necessity for residence; It is thought by many that the latter provision will only increase the practice of ' dummyism,' which recent inves tigations — although they were not needed to confirm the report,, for its truth has long been a matter of common notoriety — have shown to be carried on in a most unblushing manner. As to the proposed increase of area, it is difficult to see any necessity for it, inasmuch as settlement is going on quite fast enough under present regulations. The countr...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY GOLD-FIELDS. Some unfavourable accounts have lately been received from the gold workings at the Northern Territory — accounts which, if nothing else, prove the existence of a good deal of disappoint ment in the minds of the residents there. One such statement was printed in TheAraus, which, though carelessly written, and apparently never intended for publication, gives a graphic sketch ot the position of affairs. The writer says : — ' I have escaped fever so far, and I anticipate no. danger now.' All levant is enough to eat, and I will be all right. But it is not to be had. ' Fresh meat and vegetables are unobtainable, and preserved meat and biscuits are very bad tack. If I escape fever, I shall be starved to death here. We do better, however, up at the reefs, as there quail and pigeons are to be had for the shooting, so I will be glad to get up there again. I returned on Wednesday from the reefs, where I had been having a look round before deciding where to c...

ARTISTIC MEMOS. ON THE NORTH-EASTERN RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

ARTISTIC MEMOS. ON THE NORTH-EASTERN RAILWAY. nxy two threads of iron for 185 miles, yet what expendi ture of thought before those threads safely bear the iron horse tearing through hill, over dale, across rivers, and above swamps. From the driving of the first survey peg to the laying of the last rail, hundreds of active brains conceive, test, and decide upon multitudes of details to produce that harmonious result—a speedy, easy, hand economical way of distributing prosperity and civilisa tion, and with another main line tether the Murray River to Hobson's Bay. The North-Eastern Railway differs in con struction so much from the other main lines in the colony that it fully merits special attention, being the result of reac tion from the extravagant fit which seized Victoria when starting its state railways. As a man in training seeks to dispense with every unnecessary ounce of flesh, so have the trainers of the North-Eastern line dispensed with every unnecessary pound of iron in its...

COACH-TRAVELLING IN AUSTRALIA.—BOGGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

COACH-TRAVELLING IN AUSTRALIA.— BOGGED. Of all the unpleasant contingencies of coach-travelling     on bush roads in bad weather, that of getting bogged is almost the worst. An overturn is more dangerous, of course, but there is something exciting and adventurous about it — something to form matter of future heroic narratives and descriptions. This goes far to redeem or to reduce its unpleasantness. But there is no redeeming aspect whatever over the incident of getting bogged. The thing is so     horribly prosaic and dreary that it is impossible for the   liveliest imagination to give interest or colouring to it,. The horses are probably tired and "dead beat" — they are perhaps floundering in mud in which they can hardly keep themselves from sinking; the coach has gone down   axle deep in thick, adhesive, gluey, and quite bottomless mire; and the passengers, in dismounting to lighten the vehicle, have to s...

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

SOCIALITIES. Much has been said , on the question of the preservation of game, and it seems .to be pretty generally, admitted that it is to the interests of the whole comtminity to have certain times set apart during which beasts, birds, and fowl should be allowed a respite from the enjoyment they experience in giving wholesome outdoor amusement to the superior animals who allow them to exist on the earth. I would like to see this system extended. There should be a close season for news. It is a hard, thing to beat about over a past month in the wake of the dailies and weeklies in search of a topic that will give good ? sport to one's pen. „ Legis lative enactment would be useless to meet the case, and I merely throw it out as a hint, and leave it to the good feeling and sense of fairness of the short- time papers whether- they will accept it or not. There is hardly any way in which newspaper editors and Avriters could show their brotherly love and Christian forbearance more than by...

CAPTURE OF QUEENSLAND BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

CAPTURE OF QUEENSLAND BUSHRANGERS. The Tanmorth Examiner states that the Queensland bush ranger,Bamfield, and his companions, Campbell and Lynn, alias   Derwent Bill, -were captured at Barraba on 22nd September. This daring gang stuck up and robbed Senior constable Warren, of Moree, amd took from him his horse, revolver, handcuffs, and gold watch, and have since been committing several desperate acts in sticking up squatting stations and placing the persons there in bodily fear of their lives. They attempted to stick up the Ironbark station, near Barraba, when, upon something not yet known, they quarrelled amongst themselves, and commenced firing at each other. They were all heavily armed, and the shots flew about like hail. In the interim. Mr. William Spencer caught hold of one of them, and grasped the muzzle of the revolver in his hand. The ruffian said, 'Let go, or I will fire.' Mr. Spencer said, 'Let go, then,' and he fired, and whether from his foot slipping or the...

Sketches with Pen ROAD NEAR FERNSHAW: [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 1 November 1873

ROAD NEAR FERNSHAW : BY M. BUVELOT. About, 50 miles due east from Melbourne the tourist finds himself in the- midst of scenery which, if wanting in the gran diose character which belongs to the mountains of New Zealand, abounds, nevertheless, in picturesque elements. An excellent' coach-road from Healesville enables you to reach the summit of the Black Spur, where you are surrounded by a vegetation wholly distinct from that which you have left in the valley below. The forest trees are loftier in stem, richer in foliage, and brighter in colour than their sparse and ragged congeners in the Yarra Flats. A dense impenetrable mat of underwood forbids all access to some portions of the mountain crest ; the roadside is fringed with luxuriant creepers, and the air is perfumed with the delicate aroma of shrubs as vivid of hue as they are delicate inform. Magnificent cloisters of the Australian beech-tree over-arch the numerous springs . which issue from the earth, and make their existence kn...
