THE MOST REV. DR. VAUGHAN, COADJUTOR ARCHBISHOP (ROMAN CATHOLIC) OF SYDNEY. Thb family of Vaughan is, according to Sir Bernard Burke, one of the most eminent and influential houses of North Wales, and represents a younger branch of the Princes of Powys. From the same ancestor, an Ap Gwillim, the great race of the Herberts claims descent. The blood is strictly Celtic and purely Welsh, save in so far as it has been tinged by an intermarriage, half Spanish, half-Irish, 100 years ago. The great great grandfather of Archbishop Vaughan was out in the '45, foughT^ror Charles Edward in the Duke of Perth's division at the battle of Culloden, afterwards escaped to Spain, entered an Irish regiment in his most Catholic Majesty's service, rose to the rank of brigadier, and married the daughter of Catali...

A BRAVE BOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

A BRAVE BOY. A correspondent of a metropolitan journal, writing from New. bridge on 3rd January, reports a courageous act on the pare of a boy only 11 years of age. On the 2nd January, the excessively hot weather had induced some of the school children to walk on the banks of the Loddon, accompanied by the pupil teacher,' Miss Cherry, a young lady 18 years of age. One of che children, , George Bayley, six years of age, an orphan, and under the guardianship ; of the Cherrys, fell into a very large waterhole. This circum stance produced such a panic amongst the group that a girl named Harriet Cherry rushed in after Bayley, closely followed by her sister, the pupil teacher, together with Letitia Grant, aged 14 years. Three of these in a few minutes would have been drowned — Emily Cherry having scrambled to shore — had it not been that James Brownhill, son of Mr. Wm. Brownhill, of New bridge, was passing by on horseback when the screams of those on shore attracted his attention. He gall...

Later news from the Palmer continues favourable as regards gold, but there are no supplies, and provisions are selling at fabulous prices. The present population is between 800 and 1,000.

GREAT BUSH FIRES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

GREAT BUSH FIRES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Some very large and destructive hush fires recently occurred in the northern part of the colony of South Australia, and a very graphic description was given of the ravages by the correspondent at Laura of the South Australian Jiet/ister. He wrote as fol lows: — ' Tuesday, December 9, will long be remembered by the settlers and others on Booyoolee, Namely, and Betaloo Runs as a day of fear and anxiety. Early in the morning a strong hot wind sprang up, and in the forenoon a large fire was observed on the Betaloo Run opposite Laura, and another towards the southern end of, Booyoolee area. , The one in the scrub was left to take care of itself at first, as all assistance had to be rendered at the other fire, which was burning the wheat crops, and threatening destruction to all, the farmers. Several vehicle loads of people were soon ready to leave Laura for the scene. The owner of some wheat that was burning was driving a con veyance, and soon took th...

THE ALL ENGLAND CRICKET MATCH. MR. W. G. GRACE'S ELEVEN V.- EIGHTEEN OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

THE ALL ENGLAND CRICKET MATCH. MR. W. G. GRACE'S ELEVEN V.- EIGHTEEN OP VICTORIA. The great sporting event of the Christmas holiday time was the cricketing contest, in which Mr. W. G. Grace's All England Eleven met Eighteen Victorian players. This is the third English eleven which has visited these colonies. The creat fame of Mr. Grace as a batsman had preceded him to these shores, and an extraordinary degree of interest was felt in the result of this contest, for the colonists were well aware that their representa tives had made great advances as exponents of the noble game since the visit of Parr's eleven in 1864. The result showed that the Victorian cricketers have profited greatly by the lessons they have received from the imported talent, and that they are no longer to be despised. The tournament was arranged to take place on the ground of the Melbourne Club, which was also the scene of the first public appearance of Stephenson's and Parr's Elevens, the first in January, 1862, ...

A SINGULAR RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

A SINGULAR RACE. A hecent issue of the Oeelong A dvertiser relates the following : — 'The passengers by the down train from Ballarat on Tuesday morning. enjoyed a treat that has seldom or never fallen to the lot of any person before— the excitement caused by the Melbourne Cup was as nothing when compared with it. The train had just left Buninyong when a horse and waggonette appeared upon tho up line, and raced with the train down to Lai Lai station— a distance of three miles and three-quarters. It appears that a Mr. Walker, a trainer at Buninyong, had arrived rather late for the train, and in rushing for his ticket bad forgotten to hitch his horse up to a post, where it might be found, and- taken back to his establishment by one of his employes, and. by some means or other, the animal found its way on to the line. The whistle' of the approaching engine caused it to bolt, but, fortunately/ it .managed all the way down to Lai Lai to keep on the up line. The excitement in the train was...

Sketches with Pencil MR. W. G. GRACE AT THE WICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

MB. W. O. GRACE AT THE WICKET. Our artist has here sketched Mr. W. G. Grace, the champion, bat in hand, at the wicket. All through these All-England contests intense interest has attached to the play of Mr. Grace, of which all have heard as something which transcends all ordinary cricket. His performances here have justified the interest which has been felt in him and his play, and he will certainly leave Australia without any diminution of the credit he has gained on many a well contested field. The wicketkeeper shown is Mr. Gibson, who acted in that capacity for the Victorians in the grand opening match. THE VICTORIAN EIGHTEEN. We give in another page some notes respecting the members of the winning team in the All England Match, and describe the principal characteristics of their play. Our engraving includes the portrait of Colonel Ward, who acted as umpire. Many of the photographs from which our en graving was prepared were taken by Messrs. Kemp and Perry, Bourke-street east ; a...

Freemasonry [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

'^1 ^^^^/MI/m/u^m/^/ The half-yearly meeting of the shareholders of the Mel bourne Masonic-hall Company was held on . Wednesday, 7th ihst. , in the hall, in Lonsdale-street, Mr. A. K. Smith chairman. ' According to the report of the directors, it appeared that the amount of revenue for the last half year was £206 11s., as against £275 for the previous half year. During the half year an overdraft for £50 19s. 3d. had been paid, and there was now a balance to the credit' of the company of £58, 7s. 3d., which formed the nucleus of a fund for1 further reducing the mortgage debt, which, in the balance-sheet presented, was set down at £1,950.' The chief Masonic temple of the principal city in the southern hemisphere jis certainly an unpretentious structure, and in reading the report above quoted the mind naturally in stitutes a comparison between the local head-quarters of Freemasonry in this place and those of another city in the western world, Philadelphia, where, under an independent c...

PERILS OF REMOTE DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 24 January 1874

PERILS OF REMOTE DIGGINGS. A North Queensland journal gives /the following narrative : — The troubles and difficulties to be surmounted by diggers who rush off hundreds of miles at the least rumour of a new gold field, unprovided with sufficient rations, are well borne out by the following, related to us by Mr. John Gillespie, a miner well known in this town. Gillespie and his party left here 10 weeks since, arriving at the Palmer lliver in 21 days. He described the country as being very broken, and similar to tho accounts already published, but rations and necessaries of every descrip tion are absent. Gold was obtained by the party, which would be considered payable under dill'erent circumstances; and on the 4th November Mr. Gillespie started on his return journey to Charters Towers, with but 6lb. of Hour, his .horses being nearly knocked up. He managed to obtain a supply of Hour and tobacco at Tait's — prices, 2s. and lGs. respectively. He travelled on to the Mitchell, where he fe...

|^^^^^Mi?)iitifiHHI!HHiUHMHIIHIH«iiiiJiiiSF^^ A pkofound lull in music is the first thing to be noticed. Indeed it is to be wondered at that so much of public attention should have been devoted to any one subject in the way of public amusement as there was during the year last past. The teachers and their innumerable pupils abound at all' times, arid in this ; respect we who live in Melbourne shall have -music wherever we go.. But the domestic music has.not been enough for us. Our clever boys and girls at home have never yet been able to do more than ?was expected from them.
