BESIEGED BY BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

BESIEGED BY BLACKS. Oun engraving illustrates a dangerous episode that has often occurred in the history of our frontier settlement, and that the recent curious incident of the siege of the Gilbert River telegraph station, in North Queensland, shows is by no means altogether a danger of the past. It will be remembered that we had news that the station-master was besieged by the natives in a wooden dwelling-house, with his wife and his assistant as the garrison, and only one gun between the three. Fortunately, the telegraph wite, which the blacks did not cut, enabled him to summon assistance, and the blacks were ' dispersed,' the precise nature of which operation in this case we are not yet made fully acquainted with. We know tbat in Queensland usage it gene rally means a good deal, and is a convenient euphemism that covers some highly unpleasant details.' But had the blacks been acquainted with the mysteries of telegraphy, and had they broken the wire, in all likelihood nothing but ...

DISASTROUS NEWS FROM THE NORTH QUEENSLAND DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

DISASTROUS NEWS FROM THE NORTH QUEENSLAND DIGGINGS. The following alarming telegram was received here on February 27 from the North Queensland diggings : — 'An official telegram from Card we II reports that the expedition has returned. There is no possibility of getting a road to Palmer from Daintree. He went up the river 20 miles in a steamer. The country is all dense scrub towards the head of the river, with steep scrubby ridges backed by a mountain reaching from north-west to south, covered with dense scrub, and from 3,0U0ft to 4,000ft. high. Fully 30 miles of scrub would need cutting through to get over the mountain. The party landed at the mouth of the Bloomfield, in Weary Bay, where there is a prospect of a road in a better line and more direct. There are no great obstacles existing, so far as can be seen. The schooner Chance returned to Gladstone disabled. When within 200 miles of New Caledonia she encoun tered a south-east gale, which lasted a fortnight. An official telegram...

THE RIGHT BEV. DR. PERRY, BISHOP OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

THE RIGHT BEV. DR. PERRY, BISHOP OF . MELBOURNE. The departure of the Bishop of Melbourne by the last mail steamer from the diocese in which lie has so long and faithfully laboured lias been felt by the church to be a severance that is, virtually, ft filial ono. The bishop may, as he said, come again to the colony next year ; but if lie does so, his visit will not be a long one, arid the purpose of his journey will be little more than to resign bis episcopate before' returning finally to England. Consequently, his departure was viewed by the church as prac tically a last leave-taking, and the feeling gave a tinge of sorrowful regret to the addresses that were presented to him before lie left. At the termination of the business of the last Church Assembly an address was presented to the bishop from the assembly, and on February 26, before he went on board the mail-steamer, an address from the clergy and laity of the church was presented to Dr. Perry in the Town-hall. The presentation...

THE ALFRED GRAVING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

THE ALFRED GRAVING DOCK. The Alfred Graving Dock, now completed and in actual use, is one of the greatest public works in the southern hemi sphere, and by far the greatest of its own kind. It will prove a very great convenience to ships visiting our port, and confirm Melbourne in the position she has already attained — that, namely, of the commercial metropolis of Australia and the South Pacific. Adding this new dock to the many and varied advantages which Nature has bestowed upon her, or the enter prise of her inhabitants has provided, no other port this side of the equator will be able to cope with her in material progress, and though the new work has cost a very large sum, there is reason to hope that in the prestige, as well as the more solid advan tages which it will confer upon the colony, we shall be well rewarded for our outlay. Before proceeding to give a description of the dock, we shall give a few particulars in regard to its history. . So long since as September, 18(54, ...

SINGULAR WILL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

SINGULAR WILL CASE. We have had a trial lately presenting some curious facts. In June, 1872, a squatter named Patrick Coady Buckley died in Gipps Land, intestate. He left property to the value of about £50.000 after payment of his debts. So far as was known he left no heirs, and the Crown was about to claim the property, when one Thomas Maher, an old friend of Buckley's, appeared on the scene, and alleged that Buckley had made a will in his favour. This will was dated March, 1843, about the time when Buckley either had taken up or was about to take up stations in Gipps Land, and when he was comparatively a poor man. This will bequeathed all the property Buckley had to Maher and his wife Eliza (since dead), except £500 to be given to St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney. Maher swore that this will was written by a man named Hennessy, was signed by Buckley, and attested by two witnesses, James Keighroll and Thomas Farrell. On behalf of the Grown witnesses were examined, who produced what were...

Freemasonry [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

^1 ji^ Hebe is something worth quoting, which we take from the London Examiner. The occurrence itself, and what it gave rise to, will not be forgotten by good masons who read the extract, and the same thing— or, at least, as good shall be done here : — ' A masonic banquet took place on Saturday evening, November 8, which does indeed, in the language of the penny- a-liner, 'deserve notice.' The members of the ' Great City' Lodge met at the Cannon-street Hotel, and, much to the disgust, we should imagine, of the chef of that establishment, dined sumptuously off bread and cheese and ale. When the officers and visitors had partaken of this repast the ' Worshipful Master' explained to tho visitors- that the lodge had determined to give up one banquet (which cost between £50 and £60) and to give the amount thus saved to the1 charity -fund of the lodge. The banqueters do not seem to have suffered so frightfully from indigestion as ono might have supposed, for most of the visitors were able...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

I have heard clergymen, both in public and private draw comparisons between the manner in ?which men and women will sit without complaining in a theatre for three or four hours, and the grudging spirit they exhibit when called upon to give their attendance for an hour and a half in church. But it should be remcra bered that the theatrical manager strives to make his establishment* attractive to a far greater extent than the church people think necessary. I do not speak of the 'music, the scenery, the dresses, and the continual variety of incident that helps to keep the attention of the spectator on the stretch. These are matters that, by the nature of things, the church cannot be expected to compete Avitli. But look at the seats ! The Protestant churches, though they have given up the doctrine of pur gatory in theory, keep to it in practice, for the bodily suffering that regular church attendance entails on the devout is, 'for the time, quite equal to anything in the way. of fire th...

THE LATE REV. P.S. MENZIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

THE LATE REV. P..-S. MENZIES. It was with a feeling of widespread regret that the publio of ..Victoria heard of the death of tho Rov. Peter Sinclair Menzies, M.A., on February 23, from consumption. It was known for some tiino that Mr. Menzies was danuorously ill, and he liftd for many months been compelled to cease his pulpit ministrations, but the hope was entertained that rest and change, might periin« him to recruit his strength, and enable him to return to the career which promised, under hotter auspices, to have been a brilliant and useful one. All of those expectations, however, wore dispelled by thointolligonce o£ his death fromjtlie insidious disease by which his health had so long been undermined. l»o doceased was a son of tho -Into Rev. Dr. William Menzies, ana was born at Greenock, Scotland, in the year 1839. He was educated at the Universities of Glasgow and Heidelberg, where he gained distinction as a scholar.

AFFRAY WITH NATIVES AT BARROW'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

AFFRAY WITH NATIVES AT BARROW'S CREEK By telegrams from Adelaide we received information that an attack had been made by the natives on the Barrow's Creek telegraph station, situated on the- Trans-continental -.line. The following details are from the SoutJt Australian Register oi 24th February: — An encounter with the natives, attended with serious and fatal results, occurred. at the Barrow's Creek station on the overland line of telegraph at 8 o'clock on Sunday evening, 22nd February. From information which, through the courtesy of Mr. Todd, C.M.G., we have been enabled to gather, we learn that the whole of the station party, consisting of Mr. Stapleton, the master, and seven others, including a civilised native boy, were outside the building smoking. They were holding a conversation with a young- blackfellow whom they proposed sending up the line on horseback with one of the linemen, when they were suddenly attacked from the eastern corner1 of the station-house by a large body of...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

The coming general election is at present absorbing a large portion of public attention. Not that the interest excited by the event is anything equal in intensity to that ?which has been aroused on many former occasions, but still an event of the sort cannot pass by without awakening some enthusiasm amongst rival parties. The number of candidates coming forward is such as to assure the electors that they will not be driven to exercise 'Hobson's choice.' Many of these are new men, and it is a remarkable sign of the times that nearly all of them base their hopes of success on their advocacy of a revision of the tariff in the direction of free-trade, and assisted immigration. They have also, for the most part, pronounced against the Per missive Bill, the support of which up to a veiy recent period has been generally looked on as a passport to popularity. The arrangements for the elections are as follows : — First batch (16 districts, returning 24 members) — Date of writ, 10th March ; n...

Sketches with Pen "THE DANCING GIRL." [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 21 March 1874

i 'THE DANCING GIRL.' The present is the thirteenth issue of The Australasian Sketcher, and we have, consequently, completed the first year, of our existence. Without rendering ourselves liable to the imputation of egotism, we may state that our efforts to establish a first-class illustrated paper, which should present to home readers a graphic reflection of the scenery, the manifold phases of social life, the progress of current events, and the growth of art in Australasia, have been recognised and appreciated throughout the length and breadth of the colonies. We shall endeavour to evince the sense we entertain of the public favour by making the attractiveness of The Australasian Sketcher keep pace with its increasing circulation. In the meantime, we take occasion, on the anniversary of its birth to present our subscribers with a large engraving, copied from Mr. Edwin Long's picture of the ' Dancing Girl,' in the Fine Art Gallery of the Public Library.   This is probab...
