SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

^^''fesK SPORT I NC ^^f%^s^* After a storm, a calm ; after the excitement of theV.R. C. Spring Meeting and the Melbourne Cup day there has been a lull in the turf world, and there is not much to chronicle. The.Wagga Wagga Meeting, with its rich ' Cup,' is too far from head-quarters to attract many Melbourne visitors, but there were three capital days' sport, the great prize attracting no less than 14 starters, the winner being Mr. Bowler's colt Mountaineer, that ran second to Lapidist in the V.R.C. Derby. Ballarat is. always a favourite. meet- ing, and this year, owing in a great measure to the energy of the secretary, Mr. E. C. Moore, the two days' racing went off very successfully indeed. The meeting came off on the 4th and 5th of December ; on the first day the' Cup was. the chief event. Only five horses ran, and the yellow and black of Mr. John Tait, was victorious, on The Arrow, Mr. Coldham's Dawn of Day being second ; the other runners were King Tom, Clodhopper, and Imperial. ...

A STRANGE ENEMY TO THE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

A STRANGE ENEMY TO THE FARMERS. A correspondent of the Launceston Examiner, under date the 20th November, writes from Circular Head that 'an immense amount of damage is being done by an extraordinary visitation of the green parrot, whose numbers defy all calculation. Flinders in his voyages of discovery mentioned when, sailing thiough Buss's Straits in 1S02 of bis having seen a nock of the Sooty Petrel (mutton birds) that lasted three days. He cal culated tlie number to be not less than 100 millions, which, allowing four to each square foot, would build up a mountain 15,000ft. high, and nearly one mile square. Audubon and other writers also ? allude to the incredible multitudes of the wild pigeons to be met with in North America; but I think the present croaking brutes of Circular Head, who have already suc ceeded in desl toying all the Bniall fruit, would amount in numberd-quite upon a parallel with any Hocks df birds in the world, as they are to be seen in every nook and corner, c...

MEAT PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

MEAT PRESERVING. The prices of sheep still show a tendency to decline, and the supply is increasing, and the Melbourne Meat-preserving Com pany has consequently extended its operations. Most of the other meat- preserving companies, however, are still idle, owing to the scarcity of stock. At the half-yearly meeting of the Gee long Company, which was recently held, and at which no dividend was declared, an understanding was arrived at that operations should be continued, so that in the event of a de cided fall in the price of stock, the company might be in a position to take advantage of the market. Fat cattle are still so dear that the companies do not touch them. The Most Rev. Dr. Vaughan, coadjutor to Archbishop Polding, of Sydney (Roman Catholic), arrived by the last mail from England. The natives are troublesome at Yam Creek, Northern Ter ritory. Some miners were recently set upon by about 20, and were glad to get safely back to camp with their lives. An ex pedition was to be sen...

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

FREEMASONRY. Before the time arrives which in its fulness will bring with it the unification of the Three Constitutions under the one rule of a Victorian — or, as many would have it, an Australasian Grand Lodge— there is much that might be done to render that union more easy, so that it should come about as the natural and logical sequence of foregone events. The chief duty which every member of the Ancient and Honourable Order owes to the craft in general is to be careful that none but worthy persons shall be admitted within its pale and entrusted with its. secrets. Especially necessary is it in a country like this, wherein society finds itself established per saltxvtn, that a watchful conservatism should charge itself with the protection of the Craft from the presence of those who in seeking it; are animated by unworthy motives, and whose connexion therewith can bring neither profit nor pleasure to any one concerned. It will not be denied by the experienced Mason that the strong s...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

^^^^^rtiltiHiiiisiiiimiiiiiiuiiHiiuiiiiii A^&^Hk I In opera an extra season at the old prices and an additional two weeks at reduced .prices have come to an end since the appearance of our last number. So that there have been, one way or another, nearly 20 weeks devoted d\mng the present year to the performance of opera in Italian. In addition to this were some 17 weeks during which an uninterrupted succession of jjer formances by the English Opera Company took place, and thus it may be seen that there have been fully nine months of the year given in this city to the .performance of opera. It is doubtful if it can be said of any other place that so much time is given to this class of entertainment as ' that we point out above. But the Italian season, which came to end on the 13th instant, seems to have been to some degree in excess of the wants of the place. The time of year, and various circumstances incidental thereto, do not appear to have been favourable to the success o...

GOLD AND THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

GOLD AND THE GOLDFIELDS. These has been very little news of striking importance pub lished during the past month or two in reference to gold-mining, and us a consequence the mining stock and share markets of Melbourne and the principal gold-fields town have been dull, and the business transacted in them very small. The dulness is no doubt in a great measure to be attributed to the fact that during the past two or three months there have not been any extraordi nary announcements of the finding of new valuable quartz reefs at Sandhurst or elsewhore ; or of exceedingly heavy returns from reefs already being worked, but it must not by any means be, taken as an indication that the gold-fields of Victoria are failing in any degree,- either as regards their present total yields, or in their capability, so far as can be judged, of giving permanent employment for a long time in the future to at least as' large a working mining population as is now engaged upon them. The speculation or busine...

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. No. VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. No. VI. I confess that during the few past weeks -the first for many a long year that I have had to enjoy as it best pleased me — I have frequently sympathised most heartily with M'Carthy, whose poem, 'Summer Longings,' may be known tomany of my readers, especially if they are natives of the Emerald Isle : — ' Ah ! my heart is weary waiting, Waiting for the May, Waiting1 for the pleasant rambles, Where the fratrrant hawthorn brambles, With the woodbine alternating, Scent the dewy way, Ah ! my heart is weary waiting, Waiting for the Hay.' The spring this year has been singularly coy, the bright sun shine of one hour has been succeeded by drenching showers and bleak winds the next, and this has had a most deterrent effect on vegetation. The early flowers, which generally bloom before the swallow puts in an appearance, such as the white-ringed Anguillarid and the yellow Hypoxis, are only just appearing, and this is midway in October, and as for the Orc...

Sketches with Pencil OUR COLOURED SUPPLEMENT, " SOMEBODY'S COMING." AFTER THE ORIGINAL PAINTING BY MR. ARTHUR HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

OUR COLOURED SUPPLEMENT, ' SOMEBODY'S COMING.' AFTER THE ORIGINAL PAINTING BY MR. ARTHUR HILL. ' Somebody ' is evidently coming, and it is also. evident that he will not be unwelcome. The attitude of the little terrier, the gate set invitingly open, the smile of welcome with which his arrival is greeted by the young lady, all show that ' somebody ' is a familiar and cordially-accepted guest. The picture from which our plate was taken was hung in the collection at the Dudley Gallery Exhibition this year, and attracted much deserved admiration. CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA : STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM. People in England are at the present day tolerably familiar with the. inversion of the seasons of the year at the antipodes, or there would be something rather sur prising in the collocation of such apparently incongruous, elements as the season of Christmas and the fruits of early summer. But this, like other pleasant little surprises, has been dispelled by improved modes of teaching geography t...

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

. SOCIALITIES. Among the Victorian days that will live in the recollec tion of the present generation is Tuesday, the 9th Decem ber. With the thermometer up to 101° in the shade, the inhabitants of the whole of the south side of the metropolis had to swelter through the clay without water for drinking, cooking, or washing; and, to make things worse, the ice supply failed in the city proper, through an accident at the works. All the charitable institutions, of Melbourne have a contract with the company ^f or a certain amount of ice, and the cart of the Lying-in Hospital was sent as usual on that morning for the contract supply. A piece of almost unparalleled treachery then came to light. Some miscreant acquainted with .the working of the hospital, hearing of the break-down in the machinery, had been to the manager of the works, and stating that .there were several bad cases on hand, requested, on behalf of the hospital authorities, an immediate delivery of the contract hundredweight....

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

SMlSi lllll^^/liiy^^i^ Jillilll The time preceding Christmas is nearly always a dull time for the theatres. For it seems now to' be considered imperative that managements, should go to great expense, or at least have the credit of going to great expense, in the preparation of the pantomime, and the whole staff of scene painters, property-men, and carpenters therefore are so busy getting up the Christmas piece, that, if even there were the willingness, there is not the opportunity' to give attention to anything else. No doubt managers are the best judges of what pays, and therefore it is to be supposed they would not spend so much money over Christmas pieces if they were not remunerative. But when considering the reasons why high-class plays do not always return a profit, it is worth ? the remembering that while spec tacular pieces are got up with an unstinted out lay, the legitimate play is usually by comparison put upon the stage with a marked parsimony. It is, in fact, extemporise...

RIOT AT CLUNES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

RIOT AT CLUNES, , A disturbance of a kind much to be regretted occurred at Clunes on December 9, taking the shape of a general rising of the miners of the locality to resist the introduction of a number of Chinese to work the Lothair mine. The circumstances were   these: — A dispute, culminating in a strike, arose between the proprietors of the mine and the miners, relative to a question of hours of labour and wages, and after the works had been left idle for some time it was determined to resume operations by bringing a number of Chinese from the gold-fields. News of the intention got abroad, and a general muster of the miners of the district was called to ' resist the invasion.' Telegrams came on the 8th December stating that Chinese were leaving Ballarat and Creswick for Clunes. The Miners' Association then took instant action. The bellman was sent round the town to apprise the inhabitants, and work was immediately suspended in all the principal mines. The miners, to...

Sketches with Pen CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 December 1873

CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA. The best model we know of for a description of Christmas in Australia, to be read by readers in England, is the London ' footman's account of the great glacier on Mont Blanc, which he had visited in company, with his master. ' Think of a man,' said he, 'in a paper cap, with some panes of glass, a diamond, ' and a lump of putty, and it's exactly the reverse of that.' In like manner, if the people of the old country will be good enough to ? enumerate every characteristic of the season in northern latitudes — to run over in their mind's eye all its picturesque adjuncts, whether the same exist in reality, or only in the imagination of Christmas story-tellers and the artists engaged in the production of Christmas pictures in the illustrated newspapers, and to group together all the features of the great Christian festival as it is observed and celebrated in the British islands — we may then proceed to assure our friends at home that Christmas in Australia is 'quit...
