AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

j^G^i^^^^K, Though tho weather was changeablo during tho past month, somo days being very warm, while other days and nights were exceedingly cold, vogotation has ' mado rapid progress. Grain of all kinds has attained a groat size, both oats and wheat having a length of stem of 7 feet in various places, and yields of 70 bushels of oats' per aoro are expected. Grain and hay orops aro huavy, and pastures aro unusually well grassed; so abundant are tho crops that fears are entertained of bush fires being both numerous and extensive. The prospects ' of the orops continued good until the 17th November, when very hoavy rain fell over a large oxtent of the colony, and oauscd considerable damage by boating down the' grain orops, spoiling hay on the ground, and causing floods that ruined some of the crops, especially in the Northern districts. Hay making has been retarded in the earlier districts by tho dearth of harvest hands. Rust in grain has increased to some extent, but is not expeoted t...

SKETCHES IN PARLIAMENT.—THE LAST DAYS OF THE SESSION. SKETCHES IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

SKETCHES IN PARLIAMENT.— THE LAST DAYS OF THE SESSION. SKETCHES IN PARLIAMENT. Owing to the Government having a strong fol lowing and the Opposition a comparatively weak one matters at the commencement of the session were.comparatively speaking, tame, for theOppo- sition recognised the hopelessness of their posi tion, and acted accordingly. Now members had also tot get acoustomed to the ways of doing business.. Party lines were not finally laid down, and altogether there was a sort of constraint on both sides.. The debate on tho stock tax was the first sign of awakening life that tho Houso showed, and since 'then matters have gone on a bit more lively. Tho last days of a Parliamen tary session remind ono of an old man who, rising in the morning with the intention of weeding his garden, passes the day in easy pro crastination, and only realises at ' sunset that, there is but half an hour of daylight in which to perform the task. Evidently membors aro waking up in the last days of tho...

MR. FITZJOHN'S FIELD DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

MR. FITZJOHN'S FIELD DAY. The Prince of Wales's birthday. ihYyidtorja is generally celebrated with a review. of the naval and military forces of tho 'colony, but as a rule it is intondod merely as a display, and lacks tho ; hard work and training which the Easter encampments consist of.

ON THE WHANGAREI RIVER, N. Z. ON THE WHANGAREI RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

ON THE ?WHANGAREI RIVER, N. Z. ON THE WHANGAREI RIVER. The majority of New Zealand rivers aro very different from the general acceptation ? of tho term. In winter they are immenso torrents, swollen with melted snow, spreading far and wide, over thoir banks and carrying destruction with thorn. Summer, howovor, comes, and what was ono sheet of water contracts its dimen sions ; spaces that wore a mile wide and of groat dopth can bo waded by a child. In this respect they muoh resemble the rivers of tho north. With 2 inches of rain thoy aro a sea, but in summer merely chains of water holes. But there is this difference, that whereas the grcator number of Australian rivers are almost devoid of beauty, yet those of New Zealand abound in it. Only vory seldom, and only in parts of Victoria and Tasmania will you seo spots like that depicted in our sketch. But it is by no means a chance ocourrenco in New Zealand ; in fact every bit of water has something new and beautiful in it. Tho . sub ject...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

The somewhat sudden change in the weather during tho last week has more or less influenced crop prospects throughout tho colony, and this naturally has to some extent reaoted on trade. ...„ It cannot be .. overlooked . that our past -history affords . examples of as bright hopes for heavy grain yields as those now existing being disappointed through asudden and unsatis factory change in the weather. -Rain followed by heat induces rust, and until the present crop is safe from, tho attacks of this pest- top much reliance on the outlook m ust not be placed. For the sake of the: community as a whole, we may hope that this year we shall escape tho gep-urgo referred, to. The demand for money continues ' in our local market, and during the last month some very considerable' sums have been placed, on mortgage, principally on foreign, account.' The rates obtained have been' more in favor of lenders. There appears to ' bo 'a growing impression in financial quar ters that our next issue of deb...

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

w^mm Tlio principal theatrical ovent of tho month was the production of Antony and Cleopatra at the Opera House. It was mado a grand spec tacular tragedy, and with a view to this purpose Mr. Hcnnings was engaged to paint the seonory. In 'nloing bo' it 1b no exaggeration to Bay that ho eclipsed all his provious efforts. His contri butions in this line formed tho theme of general admiration, evon at the hauils of tho most critical. Tho general accessories also woro upon a scale of unusual magni ficence, so that the entire sotting alone was an entertainment in itself. Mr. Ikliln took tho part of Antony, and that of Cleopatra was allotted to Miss Jordan. Tho latter selection proved most unfortunate. Tho lady, although possessed of considerable histrionic ability and high intelli gonce, was wholly unsuitcd for - the part, and ' the rosult was, as is invariahly.the case where tho manager's lady regards herBelf its a heaven-born genius, disastrous. -What might havo proved a grand triumph t...

The first indication of this new departure was given when under very suspicious circumstances Mr. Gillies brought down tho additional estimates, and succeeded in : running them through in a few hours, notwithstanding that they con- - tamed many questionable features' involving the honor- if not the. common honesty of the Government.' .'

AN INTERRUPTION ON THE OVERLAND TELEGRAPH LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

AN INTERRUPTION ON THE OVERLAND TELEGRAPH LINE.

This lino plays such' an important part, both in a commercial and social' point of view, that oven tho most trivial, inter ruption causes a deal of anxiety to both the' business man, who looks every morning for tho latest English quotations, either in wool, copper, wheat or other colonial products, .or tho general newspaper ' r eader, - ' ? who anxiously scans the telegrams' for English news up to date.

ABORIGINAL MYTHS.-THE ORIGIN OF WATER ABORIGINAL MYTHS.— THE ORIGIN QF WATER. The history of tho Australian aborigines is extremely circumscribed, in fact it hardly: ex tends further than the memory of the oldest mombor of the tribo. There are no records, and everything is hearsay, handed down from father to son.. Hence all mattors in connection; with their. past are involved in mystery, aiid. any in formation is moroly- tho result, of logical, deduc tion, pieced togother from bits of history gleaned ' at random. As might be' expected,', anything savoring of tho marvellous is caref ully' treasured up, and in fact history is mainly com posed of myths existing among; the. natives. Tako, for instance, that of the origin of wator, which we illustrate.

EVENTS OF THE MONTH. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

EVENTS OF THE MONTH. VICTORIA. ?'..-, The eoncerts of the Victorian Orchestra have been twice interrupted during the past month by the Town Hall having been let for other purposes on tho occasions when the concerts should have taken placo. In Cup week the Saturday concert could not be given, but the hall was secured for the previous Tuesday (Cup night) instead ; in the following week, however, only one concert took placo, that on Saturday afternoon. An innovation has been introduced which will probably bo satisfactory to a large section of the public, namely, the addition of vocal musio to the programmes. Madame Bentami has been engaged to sing at six concerts, contributing two numbers at eaoh. This arrangement, besides giving variety, has the advantage of enabling celebrated compositions' with elaborate orohes tral accompaniment to become known, which otherwise could only be heard by means of pianoforte accompaniment, a most unsatisfac tory substitute for tho orchestra, and entirel...

MUSIC REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

MUSIC REVIEW. We have received the following music for re view from Messrs. W. H. Glen and Co.: — . Winged Echoes. — Song. Words by John Muir, composed by F. Paolo Tosti : A favorable ex ample of this composer's well known style, and likely to become popular. It is of moderate difficulty and is published in three keys. Tho edition sent to us is in D flat and is disfigured by several misprints. The highest setting (in F) rises only to the F on the fifth line and goes down to D. Gladness or Sadness.— Song. Words by G. Clifton Bingham, composed by J. L. Roeokel. It goes without saying that the writing is musicianly, if here and thore n trifle common place; hut the waltz retrain will probably render the song popular. There are also several misprints in this song (edition in E flat). It is published in three keys, and the compass of the highest setting (G) is from D to G. John's Wife. — Song. Words by F. E. Weatherley, music by J. L. Roeokel.' A pleas ing song, though the music is- hardl...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. W.A. — Much controversy has been created .by thu opening bars of Momlulssolm's Wedding March as to the nature of tho harmonies used. The composition commences ' with a fanfare upon the chord of O, which strikes thu listener as the tonic of the piece to be per formed. But it is also the sixth degree of the Key of B minor, one of the attendants of O, and this fact is taken advantage of l)y Mendelssohn to com mence his march proper in that key. The opening chords are the first inversion of the 7th on thu second of the scale of E minor, the dominant chord in two positions, and the chord of the tonic preceded by auxiliary notes belonging to the dominant harmony. The next chord makes a return to C, being the ' first inversion of the common chord on the 2nd degree of that key. Sandhurst. — ' Op.' stands for ' opus,' the Latin for ' a work.' The number which follows refers more generally to the order of publication of the work bearing such a number rather than to ...
