AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 February 1891

Harvest is over in all but a few of tho latest distriots, and the amount of wheat, according to tho estimate of the agricultural reporter of The Leader, is tho largest ever reaped in the colony, being 17,245,500 bushels from 1,210,000 acres, as against 11,495,720 in 1889-90, 8,647,709 in 1888-89, and 15,570,245 in 1884. Allowing 7,585,000 bushels as food and soed requirements for the present year, tho surplus for export will amount to 9,660,500 : bushels, exceeding the entire crop of 1889. According to the above estimate the- average, yield per aoro is 14.25 bushels, tho highest that has been reaped in the colony for a great many years, exceeding that of 1884, which was 14.10 bushels per. aoro. Be sides its abundanoo, the grain is good in quality in every district, being plump, thin skinriod, heavy, and absolutely the whole of it fit for exportation.

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 February 1891

. Tho main item of interest to be recorded this month is the termination of Miss Nellie Stownr.t's season of comic opera nt tho Opera House. It proved artistically and financially a most unprecedented success. Her departuro from tho colonies . bas had. tho effect of disbanding one of tho most complete and offioient opera companies of the kind 'ever brought together in Melbourne. Miss Stewart '' it appears has ar ranged to appear at tho Gaiety 'Theatre; London, in comic opera, but her , main' object, it seems, in severing her connection for a time with the colonial stage, is to seouro the rest she abso lutely needs. The production of Dandy Diok, Pinero's amusing and clover comedy at the Bijou Theatre, proved an immense success. Mr. Alison took tlio part of the Dean of St. Mar veil's, and made it all his own. His acting in it. has been the theme of general admiration, and to it is to a great extent due the satis factory results acoruing from tho season. Mrs. Brough was fairly excellon...

DKSOIlirTION OP THTC BUI&DINO. . Fifty- four years aftor tho foundation of tho bity, Molbourqo has at longth its Anglican Cathodral. Nearly 11 years ago the oorner stone was laid with duo oeromony by tho Marquis of Ndrmanby, then Governor of the colony,' upon a site at the intersection, of Flinders and Swanston stroots, and' to-'day may* bo soon in that location a building massive enough to form a conspicuous and imposing foaturo of the landscape, yet not commandingly hamls'omo~ - and dwarfed by peculiarity of position. . Those - who deplore tho lattor defect on the soore of the proprieties need know very little of past church history to satisfy thomsolves that the point was foreseen and woll dobatod. As far back as 1864 it. was proposed to erect an Anglican cathedral. In 1868 the quostion was rovived, but not until 1877, on the arrival, of Bishop ftloorhouse, who uncompro misingly ; condemned St. James's, was : any ef fective action taken. Through him a oommitteo was appoin...

THE LATE GEORGE F. FOLINGSBY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 February 1891

THE LATE GEORGE F. FOLINGSBY. The death is announced of Mr. George F. Folingsby, the director of the National Picture Gallery of Victoria. Mr. Fohngsby was well known as an artist, his painting of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, in the   National Gallery, always attracting the atten- tion of visitors by the skill displayed in the painting of the- textures, and he was also a popular portriat painter. Mr. Folingsby, who was 62 years of age, had been ailing for some   time, but his decease came with the suddenness of surprise to many of his friends .He was a   native of Ireland, but emigrated when a youth to tho United States, where hhis artistic pro- clivities led to his connection with some of the early illustrated publications issued in New York. His aim, however, was to succeed in the higher brances of art, and, after some time, he ??????????????? Great Britain.

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 February 1891

Parliament was prorogued on tho 20th December last. Owing to a variety of circum stances the stability of the new Government had been seriously menaced when, the' Houses met subsequent to the Ministerial elections, and for a time it seemed probable that acoalition would be brought about between the disappointed sup porters of Mr. Munro and the direct Opposition. A proposal of this nature,, in fact, was sub mitted to Sir. Gillies, but ho refused to co operate with members through whose instru mentality he had been driven from office. Tho intrigues of the malcontents consequently came to nothing, and ordinary business was proceeded with. The Government, however, felt them selves awkwardly situated owing 'to the uncompromising attitude of tho head of the' late Government in relation to tho appointment of members to fill the vacanoios on the standing committee on railways, and being anxious to closo tho ? session in peaoo and hurmony it would seem as though they had privately arranged t...

PROFESSOR MARSHALL HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 2 February 1891

PROFESSOR MARSHALL HALL. Mr. G. W. L. Marshall Hall, who has recently been appointed as first occupant of the chair of music founded in connection with the Melbourne University by the munificence of the late Mr. Francis Ormond, M.L.C., arrived here early in January from England, and at the invi- tation of Dr. J. Summers a number of   gentlemen interested in music met at the Vienna Café in order to tender him a wel- come. Various toasts having been proposed, including the health of the guest, Mr. Hall in reply stated that it would be premature at such an early stage to make extended reference to the scope of his future work. One thing, however, about which he had fully made up his mind, was that in the University course mere technique would not be   the one thing needful. In his experience   on the Continent of Europe he had seen and heard some truly marvellous exhibitions of what   he might term musical gymnastics, and he was incli...

VIEW NEAR NARBETHONG'. Narbothong, somo' yoars ago popularly known as Fishor's .'Crock, lies between the' settlements of Healoavillo ? and. j; Marys ville, . and . is about 50. miles from Melbourne. A great deal of tho timber has beon cleared by farmers, . but there still remains a largo area of typical Victorian bush. The country is somewhat hilly, arid . is traversed by soveral streams, none of which, however,' attain any considerable size. The bush is gonorally dense,., and the. cicepow and sorub make progress, a difficult matter. Tho travel ler , may ofton have a shot at wallaby, 'opossums and native bears. But the feathered denizens of tho wood aro by far tho most numerous.
