NEW BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

NEW BOOKS.* We Lave before us three books of poetry, published almost simultaneously — two in Melbourne and one in Adelaide. Of these the one that, from the scope, of its aim and the com pleteness of its form, merits priority of notice is the poetical romance of Mr. G. G. M 'Craft. The author has taken in hand the strange historic incident of the masked prisoner of the Bastille, not with a view of seeking to unravel the mysteries connected with it, but as the subject of a poem. As it became necessary amongst the various guesses as to the personal identity of the prisoner to select one, he took that which afforded the greatest field for poetic treatment/ in assuming that the im prisoned unknown was the twin-brother of Louis XIV., the reigning monarch of France, by whom he was, with more than Turkish cruelty, consigned to a living tomb. Assuming , this solution of the riddle, it is easy to see in this strange illustration of the caprice and irony of fortune raising one brother to a ma...

AUSTRALASIAN STATESMEN.—No. II. THE HON. J. G. FRANCIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

AUSTRALASIAN STATESIIEN.-No. II. THE HON. J. G. FRANCIS. The present Chief Secretary of Victoria is so old a colonist that he is almost entitled to he described as an Australian. Mr. Francis was born in London in 1S19. At 15 years of age he emigrated to Tas mania, then called Van Diemen's Land. Entering the mercantile firm of Messrs. Boys and Paynter, of Hobart Town, he remained in the service of that house until 1847, when the establishment passed into the hands of himself and Mr. Mac pherson, with whom he has since re mained in commercial relations. In 1853, when the gold discoveries in Victoria were* bringing thousands of new arrivals to these shores, and it was just becoming apparent that there was a great future before this colony, the firm established a branch in Melbourne. Mr. Francis came over as managing partner, and has been a constant resident from that date. Though frequently solicited in Tasmania, he never, while in that colony, took a part in public affairs. In Melbour...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

illlliil IJIk^^lli^^il iii^ft . The , crowded houses and the consequently long run of the pantomine at the Theatre Royal have furnished cause for speculation as to the causes which have led to such a remarkable success ; for, as- a literax-y production, ? this pantomime occupies a subordinate place, and although it has been put upon the stage with a fairly liberal attention to the requirements of scenery and costume, it has not dis tanced, in these particulars, other productions of the same sort which were not distinguished by remarkable success. Neither in tho acting has there been - any exceptional ex cellence ' shown. The , cause is, therefore, probably to be sought for in the fact that people have plenty of money to spend; that the facilities for those , living in the country to get down to Melbourne are much greater than they used to be,1 and that 'the Theatre Royal is, virtually, the only, house where regular dramatic peformances are given. Glitter and spectacle, moreover, mus...

NORTHERN EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

NORTHERN EXPLORATION./; The discoveries in' Northern Queensland (observes a Rock* hampton journal) follow each other in such quick succession that one is apt to become. bewildered at their extent, variety, and richness. Hann'a^expedition, though but partially successful, seems to have given'an impulse to discoveries, which wo think will not be spent till the whole country up to Cape York lias been tho roughly explored. Accordingly, the present seems u very favourable occasion to anticipate what wb; may expect as the result, and.thts we think will far surpass the public expectations of the present time. There has been an , idea 'since the time of Kennedy, tlmt Capo York Peninsula is nothing but a mass of bare granite, which never can Uo turned to human use, but this is supported by evidence of the very slightest nature, and is quite out of the common order of things. Those who entertain it seem to have forgotten that the Main Range, vary in ir from 4,000ft. to u.OOOft. high; runs thr...

THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

THE LABOUR MARKET. The principal feature in the labour market of late has been the unprecedented dearth of female house servants. The rate of wages quoted is nominally the same as it has been for some months past; but house servants are not to be' obtained' in sufficient number to satisfy the demand at any price that would be ottered. Any servant girl, on entering one of the registry offices, has at once the pick of a hundred situations, the em ployers being only too glad to obtain u servant of any description to be particular us to qualifications. The number of persons willing to undertake the duties of house servants is daily decreasing, and as the native-born girls invariably prefer half the wages at any occupation whereby they would retain their liberty, the prospect for housekeepers in the future is anything but a hopeful one. The following are the rates of wages paid : — Domestic Servants. — For Town — Housemaids, £30 to £36 per annum ; female cooks receive from £40 to £60 per...

THE ARTS NEW PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

NEW PICTURES. . Mi.' BuvELOT has lately completed two pictures for exhi bition.in the Victorian Academy of Arts, which will sustain his reputation as one of our foremost landscape painters. Both subjects have been selected from the scenery in the immediate vicinity of Mount Macedon : the: one picture representing an expanse of tolerably open country in the freshness of ?: the early morning, and the other the shaggy sides of the. mountain itself in the rosy glow of sunset. Each -has-been so skilfully treated that it would be difficult to award the preference to either. In both a special feature; is made of a group of trees in the centr.e of the foreground, and these are so emphatically accentuated in form and colour, and so distinctly individualised, as to deserve, to be considered as portraits. In 'fact, M. Buvelot seems to look at trees as an old Greek would have done, and to' regard them not ; as objects imerely, but as beings, each' having 'its, owAn character, physiognomy, and' ...

ASPECTS OF FIJI LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

ASPECTS OF FIJI LIFE. The , following ? amusing and graphic sketches, of various phases of social and public life .in the odd gathering of 'in- dividuals slowly organising themselves into a regular com munity' at Fiji are selected from a recent letter by the able contributor of The Argus, whose papers on this subject we have often /.quoted from before : — / ' It cannot be denied that the feeling between the great body of the white settlers and the native race is one of cordial dislike i on both! sides. - Many of the disagreements 'arise from want of tact and patience on the part of the settlers, and also from the conviction which so many people have that nothing in the shape of a 'nigger' is entitled to fair dealing. A new arrival in the country, if a moderately well-conducted person, is generally impressed with the civility and amiable manners of the Fijians. The planters tell him that this is a mistake which he will soon find out, and that the natives do not improve upon acquainta...

Sketches pen with HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

HOBART TOWN. The southern capital of Tasmania occupies one of the most picturesque sites for a city to be met with in an island which abounds in natural beauties. At the head of a noble estuary and at the foot of a massive mountain, within reach of the sea breeze Land open to the pure air which sweeps down upon it from an amphitheatre of thickly- wooded ranges, the city of ? Hobart is gifted with every advantage which position and sur roundings can bestow. The ground upon which it is built is full of thosejnequalities which tend to break up the level uniformity of architectural lines, and which conduce so much to the beauty of places like. Bath, Lincoln, Edinburgh, and Genoa. Approach it in which direction you will, or survey it from- any point of view you may select,, you cannot fail to be struck with the picturesqueness of its situation, and with the happy blending of grandeur and amenity which is presented by its environments of mountain, wood, and water. ; From the Springs, as w...

OUR CHINAMEN. We have in another column an article illustrating some of the aspects of Chinese life in Melbourne here repre sented. OUR AGENTS-GENERAL : NO. IV. DR. FEATHERSTON, AGENT-   GENERAL FOR NEW ZEALAND. Dr. Isaac Earl Featherston, the fourth son of Mr. Thomas Featherston, of Blackdean, Weardale, and Cot nqld-house, in the county of Durham, was born on the 21st March, 1813. He received his early education at the private school at Tamworth, and subsequently in Italy. He afterwards studied at the Edinburgh University, where   he graduated M.D. in 1836. In 1839 he married the daughter of Mr. A. Scott, of Edinburgh ; and in the follow ing year, on account of ill health, he emigrated to New Zealand. He settled at Wellington, and immediately took a leading part in the politics of the country, especially in advocating the immediate introduction of representative government. He was presented in 1851 with a service of plate by the purchasers of land under th...

GREAT FLOODS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

GREAT FLOODS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. Veuy widespread and destructive floods occurred1 in the .Hunter districts at the end of January.' They have since sub sided ; but the following description of them while, at the' worst is from the Hudneu Morning Herald, of January 29 :— ' Sirriul taneously with a large full of ruin on Saturday night and Sunday, we learn that the townships of Singleton, East and West Main land, and Morpeth were inundated; Jt in generally supposed that floods occur after heavy ruins in the immediate vicinity of the places submerged; such, however, is not the case even as frequently as might be' imagined, and the rainfall of Sunday had little to do with the ilood of Monday beyond slightly swelling the immense volume of water that was finding its way across the lowlands lying between the table-land in the northern border and the outlet to the ocean at Newcastle. During the past month, at intervals, a large quantity of rain has fallen over the Liverpool Ranges and on the ...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

The principal turf events since the V.R.C. New Year's Day Meeting have been decided at, Albury, Wangaratta, and Geelong. The two former places are now easily attain able by rail, the North -Eastern line shaving been lately opened, and consequently - many visitors from the metro polis — bipeds! and quadrupeds — made the trip inland. At Albury, the-Ciip, was won by Mr. Brewer's After Dark, by Leap Yearp Friendless and Cassio running a dead heat for secondhand; on the second day, Benjiroo, by Touchstone, won the Albury Turf Club Handicap, Cassio second, and After Dark' third. ''At Wangaratta: there were two days' racing, and a very pleasant meeting it was^- albeit the wea ther, was a trifle. warm.' There was a good attendance from Melbourne, and the two big races — the Wangaratta Handi cap and the Borough Handicap — were won by a Melbourne horse — Hercules; byYattendon, 4 yrs, carrying 7st. 71b. and 8st. 31b. respectively. Hercules won easily enough. Six horses ran for the first evont,...

SOCIALITES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

In the very last speech His Excellency Sir George BoAven made during his late visit to Tasmania, he spoke words which deserve all the publicity The Australasian SketcJier can give them. He said that 'his position in respect to the ladies of 'Victoria was something of a parental one — a fatherly kind of regard as it 'was to his daughters'. ' I have often h eard young ladies speak of: their father as ' the governor,' but have not thought ifc nice. Now, however, that His Excellency is prepared to assume general parental responsibilities, no objection can bo taken to our girls using the expression ; and those who dislike slang have to thank Sir George for legalising an impropriety of speech that has often grated on their ears, i In future, when the girls speak of their new found fathor, it should be as the ' dear governor.' I can imagino the feelings of horror and indignation with which Dr. Patrick Murray will read the description ef the wilful destruction of so much good black flesh up...

OUR CHINAMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 February 1874

OUR CHINAMEN. Our sketcher with the pencil gives us this month some     drawings of different Chinese residents in Melbourne, as they appear in the pursuit of those callings which seem to be the best fitted for them, both on account of their own capabilities and the controlling power of the circumstances which in this   country surround them as Oriental foreigners. A slight sketch with the pen is all that is needed in each instance to accompany each woodcut. The general typo of the emigrant Chinaman is well known to every one who has been living in this country for any length of time, whether in the bush, the gold-fields, or the metropolis. He has a quietly persistent, although not a forcible   way of making his varied qualities known to the people amongst whom he lives, but with whom it cannot be said that he mixes. He has been ' damned to immortal fame ' as 'The Heathen Chinee' of the Pacific Slope. Mr. J. Brunton Stephens, in Qu...

There was a very pleasant three days' racing m Tas mania on the 10th, 11th, and 12th February, at Laun ceston ; and there was a largo influx of visitors from this side. Tho Launceston Cup, a two-mile handicap race, was won by the light of other days, Old Strop, carrying Gst. 101b. , Blue Peter and Kinglike running a dead heat for second. But the old horse could not repeat his victory in the Tasmanian. Turf Club Handicap, which is only a mile and. a half, in which Blue Peter reversed positions with him, Kinglike being third. Kinglike won the Tasmanian Turf Club Derby ; and a local horse, Cleaver, won the Steeplechase, Mr. Bowes being second with Trumpeter. The Victoria Racing Club were unfortunate in f he matter of the weather for their Autumn Meeting, as rain fell heavily until noon on the first day (Friday, the 6th March), and there were some thoughts of the meeting being post poned. It cleared off, however, and the afternoon Avas fine. The attendanc...
