SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 November 1873

SOCIALITIES. I wonder whother thoTh'ee marriago system to which iho Church of England in Victoria has committed itself will have the same deteriorating influence on tho matrimonial relation that . the abolition of school fees is said to have worked in educational matters ? Schoolmasters say that people don't appear to values the blessing of instruction for their children since they liavo reason to pay for it. 'Is there a likelihood of youths and maidens becoming indifferent to matrimony for the same reason ? On the other hand, parents complain, that teachers shirk their work from the want of the stimulus, of the fee ; will clergymen slum their mar riages now that they have not the tender interest excited that the customary honorarium was wont to evoke 1 These are questions which the Bishop should have weighed well before pronoxineing in favour of a free system. 'Marriage comes so seldom to a man in these monogamous days, that few of us would grudge any reasonable expense in having t...

Sketches with Pen. THE SPRING RACING HOLIDAYS.—CUP DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 November 1873

THE SPRING RACING HOLIDAYS.— CUP DAY. The Melbourne Cup of 1873, run -?n Thursday, November 0, will be long remembered throughout Australia as the most important racing event that has ever occurred in these colonies. Many circumstances have combined to make the meeting an exceptional one. Apart from the attractions of the racing, which increase every year, the 'Melbourne Cup is beginning to be looked on as an occasion when every one in Victoria who has the time and money to spare should take a holiday. Even in the neighbouring colonies the interest felt in the great handicap race of the year is very great, and for some time before the event comes off all the intercolonial steamers are crowded with passengers. The opening of the new grand stand, which has been erected at such great expense by the club, was looked forward to as an event to be cele brated by a more than ordinary display of magnificence. The weather on the two previous days had been very unpromising, and heavy raitis ha...

RETURN OF THE CARL CAPTIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 November 1873

RETUBN OF THE CARL CAPTIVES. The picture on another page represents one of the scenes in the last act of the infamous Carl tragedy, viz., the return of some of the captives to their homes in the Kingsmill or Gilbert group of islands, situated on the equator. The atrocities com mitted in connexion with the voyage of the Carl, a vessel fitted out to kidnap South Sea Islanders for the plantations of Fiji, will be fresh in the recollection of our readers. When the law had dealt with some of the offenders, the public voice demanded that justice should be done to the captives (stated by Mr. Consul March to be languishing for their homes, and smarting under the lash of cruel plantation owners in Fiji), and that they should be returned to their severnl islands. Commodore Stirling promptly undertook to perform this service, and in June last Il.B.M. schooner Alacrity conveyed 27 of the kidnappecs by the second'- voyage of the Carl from Fiji to their homes in tho Kingsmill and Marshall groups....

The lawn in front of the grand stand on the Flemington Racecourse is, on the occasion of ' Cup Day,' the scene of the most brilliant display of fashion and beauty that Mel bourne has to offer. There is no other outdoor occasion throughout the year for which such preparations are made, or which attracts such an attendance of youth and beauty, intent only on the one object — of' appearing to the best advantage. It is for this day and this spot that the leading modistes of Melbourne have been hard at work for months, and it is here that the brightness and gaiety of the spring fashions attain their highest development. One must be imbued with something that is colder than cynicism and sourer than misanthropyvif he could go to the racecourse on Cup Day and survey the crowds of well-dressed ladies on the lawn without having his attention arrested and his me...

FREEMASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 29 November 1873

FREEMASONRY. When' speaking about the Victorian ' Memorial' on the subject of 'Independent Grand Lodges,' we saidj in a recent communication, we believed 'that the formation of independent grand lodges will lead, in the natural sequence of o vents, to the perfect recognition throughout the. world of uniformity in work, and thorough fraternity in senti ment- amongst all good Masons.' We believe that this opinion will find acceptance amongst all those brethren of mature _ years with whom Masonry is , a .vital: principle of action in their daily ..lives., and conduct.;;; The. uniformity sought for will never consist, in a slavish conformity to the set phrase of words, , but' an' approach Nip this^gpbd end will be found in the purification .of ritual from^riiany,,extraneous conceits and vanities, \ which have; been allowed: to attach themselves to the time-honpured. bbservaricesVpf the: general craft.

A SUBTERRANEAN MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

A SUBTERRANEAN MYSTERY. The South Australian lleyisler has translated the following from the Australische DeulHche'Zeitmig of November 27 : — ' Our attention has been repeatedly called to a peculiar natural phe nomenon, and we have been requested to furnish an explana tion of the matter. Over the whole distance between Greenock and Lyndoch Valley a rumbling noise, often very loud, and ap parently subterraneous, is heard at intervals throughout the day and night. It resembles, according to the description of several persons, the subterranean rumbling which precedes an earth quake. To us the sound appears like that of a train upon a distant railway line. Many local farmers, however, affirm that the noise is heard at times when the train is not passing, and that this cannot therefore be the cause. Others imagine that the rumb ling proceeds either from the bowels of the earth, atid is caused by volcanic agency, or, as is generally supposed, from the fact of the internal sound appearing ...

THE PALMER DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

THE PALMER DIGGINGS. The discovery of the Palmer Diggings is the latest addition to the great mineral wealth of North Queensland. An official telegram from the officer commanding the expedition sent out to open a road from Endeavour to Palmer, reports from Junction Creek that he arrived there on the 14th December, with Mr. M 'Mil Ian and 86 diggers, all well. There was a good road in 120 miles from Cookstown to Endeavour Rises. The blacks were numerous and hostile. About 500 men were on the ground. The usual earnings were £1 per man per day. Many were getting much more, few or none less.. The largest nugget yet found was lOoz. It was believed to be the richest and most extensive gold-field yet discovered in Queensland. The blacks were very numerous and troublesome, and had speared two men. Neither, however, was fatally injured. Five horses had been speared, three of which were killed. Rations were very dear ; fresh beef 9d. per In., with an inadequate supply. There' had been no salt...

SETTLERS' LIFE IN FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

SETTLERS' LIFE IN FIJI. The special correspondent of The Argus, whose interesting letters on the South Sea labour trade have attracted much attention, thus describes the manner in which an outpost settler in Fiji is compelled to guard himself against the attacks of the mountaineers : — 'After an early breakfast on the morning of the 3rd' June, I started for Vuni Samola, the scene of the Burns massacre, with Lieutenant O'Callaghan and Mr. Sullivan, the plantation furnishing three horses. The New Hebridean who accompanies us and carries a large part of the revolver and rifle ammunition, goes with a slinging trot which enables him to keep pace with the horses. We readied Mr. Soderberg's planta tion on the Ba River about midday, and ferried across to Mr. M 'In tosh's on the Vuni Samola side. The Ba is a fine river. It is shallow, but cutter boats come up to this point, seven or eight miles from the mouth. One of the first objects which attracts attention on Mr. M 'In tosh's plantation i...

MRS. BLADEN NEILL'S SERIOULTURAL ESTAB LISHMENT AT COROAVA. A conREsroNDENT of The Argus, Mr. .T. P. DanieU, gives the following very encouraging account of the establishment of Mrs. Bladen Neill at Corowa, where the industry of sericulture lias been commenced under promising auspices :— Mrs. Neill's establishment is charmingly situated on the banks of the Murray, about a mile arid a half from Corowa. The grounds immediately surroumliiig.V the dwellinghouse and mngnauerie have been adorned with many foreign trees and heautilied'with flowers, so as greatly to enhance the natural attractions of the site. Here the elm, the hawthorn, and the lilac recall to our thoughts many a pleasant English, scene, while there the waving bamboo and the graceful alanthus remind us of oriental views. Hedges of climbing roses trellised in with vines bring nuuny France to our remembrance; while oranges and pomegranates in the full luxuriance of bloom tell us we are far from home.

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN ITEMS. The Adelaide correspondent of The Argus, writing under date December'!, supplies the following items of news: — Go- vernment have wasted no time-in bemoaning- the inauspicious fate which has condemned the colony to pay to the holders of some 507 Northern Territory land orders the amount of their purchase money, with interest ^thereon at 10 per cent. Last week leave was given to the Treasurer to bring in a bill to raise by loan a sufficient sum to meet this ;uhwelcome liability, and this week the measure has been rapidly passed through all its stages. It has been ascertained that' the amount required to pay off all claims will not be less than £SO,000. Of this the North Australian Company will be entitled to about £45,000, the remainder being required to meet, the1 demands 'of proprietors who have lost all interest in the experiment of colonisation in the Northern Territory. The law costs are set down in round numbers at £10, 000, but this estimate, liberal as...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

With the prorogation of Parliament the languid interest felt by the people in things political appears to have died away altogether, and were it not that certain gentlemen who are desirous of securing a seat in the House have already issued their addresses in anticipation of the coming cam paign, we should be apt to forget that we enjoy the inestimable boon of self-government, and at times can manage to stir up a considerable amount of strong party feeling. The promises of the expectant candidates are, of course, of the usual profuse character. They are prepared to take in hand, and settle in a liberal manner, all the difficult questions which had puzzled the heads of all our politicians and statesmen for years. It is thought, how ever, that the elections will not take place until March or April, so it would be somewhat premature to dwell at any length on this matter. We have, moreover, a long stretch of holidays to endure or enjoy as best we may before we shall be called on to disc...
