SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

A gentleman to whom I was previously unknown asked me at an evening party if I wasn't iri the literary line. I hesitated, blushed, and. not wishing to commit myself to a full statement of the obligations I imposed on society by my labours, replied that I did a little in that way. ' Then I suppose you have seen the Lahore Gazette ?' inquired he. I was sorry to confess, but I hadn't seen the Lahore Gazette. My newspaper reading, in fact, was confined^ to Etiropean and colonial publications, and without meaning anything offensive, I didn't care to extend it. . But this was a special effort, I was told. The Gazette was a paper written and published 22 years ago on the voyage of the good ship Lahore (that's not the real name, but it will serve the pur pose) from London to Melbourne, and it was thougKt to be so good that the passengers who contributed to it went to the expense of having it printed. 'I have a few dozen copies left,' said my informant. ' There were 600 lines of poetry in it...

WRECK OF THE BARQUE ECLIPTIC—TEN MEN LOST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

WRECK OF THE BARQUE ECLIPTIC— TEN MEN LOST. A telegram of a very painful nature reached Melbourne from Port Albert on March 31, announcing the loss of the barque Ecliptic, of this port, and all bands, with the exception of an ordinary seaman named Win. Singleton, and that the captain's body had been picked up. The Ecliptic left Newcastle on the 26th of March, with a cargo of coal for Messrs. W. Morley and Co., and at one a.m. on March 31 went on shore on Clommel Island, off Wilson's Promontory. She was a staunch, seaworthy vessel, of 314 tons register, owned by Mr. William Eld ridge, of Richmond, and his brother, Nelson Eldridge, who commanded her, and only a few months ago received a th or ouch overhaul and refit at an expense of £1,400. She was insured in the Derwent and Tamar office for £2,000, and her freight was covered for £300 in the Mercantile Marine. Captain Eldridge was a thorough seaman, and much esteemed by all who knew him, both in private and public life, for his uprig...

SPORTINC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

'jjj|jjy~'^- *tjff -ts^J|B^S^S\^ There was a very pleasant little race meeting held at Kyneton on St. Patrick's Day, and a very large at tendance of company at that pretty little course. Kyneton is one of the pet meetings in this colony. It is so conveniently situated, close to a railway station at an easy distance from the metropolis ; and on the day dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland everybody in the district is disposed to be jolly and to be making holiday. A visitor on that day has only to don the green ribbon, and he is welcome. Mr. Wilson's, (the St. Albans) stable was in fine form, winning both the Kyneton Handicap of 200 sovs. and the Lauriston Handicap of 100 sovs. with their horse Poodle. Mr. 0. B. Fisher's recent purchase, Pro digious, won the Steeplechase. The other events are not beyond local interest. Following close on Kyneton was the Ballarat Turf Club Autumn Mleting, on Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20. The great event of this meeting was'the ' Grand Natio...

WRECK OF THE SCHOONER EUGENIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

WRECK OF THE SCHOONER EUGENIE. The following particulars of the wreck of the above vessel reach us from Auckland : — The Eugenie, under the command of Captain Clark, left Tahiti on July 12, with 139 natives for the ,Gilbert Group, under the charge of a French Government agent. When about half way on the passage a fire broke out in the cabin of the vessel. It was supposed to have originated through the explosion of a kerosene lamp. Efforts were at once made to extinguish the fire, and the crew were successful in doing so after working some three hours. One of the crew — a native — was burnt to death ; the captain was also severely burnt, and died in great agony ten days, afterwards. Gilbert's Group was made on August 2, and the schooner landed the natives on different islands on August 11. Whilst lying off the island of Taputawea a violent squall struck the schooner, and her chain suddenly parting, she drifted on the reef, where she became a total wreck. The crew and passengers got s...

Sketches with Pen THE DISASTER TO THE S.S. SOMERSETSHIRE ON HER VOYAGE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

THE DISASTER TO THE S.S. SOMERSETSHIRE ON HER VOYAGE HOME. The circumstances of the storm experienced by the Somerset shire on her last run home, which we have illustrated in our engraving, are graphically described in the following letter from one of the passengers, which was published in The Argus : — 'Valparaiso, Dec. 1, 1873. 'The Somersetshire left Melbourne on the 28th October, and proceeded on her voyage to England by way of Cape Horn. Nothing of note occurred until the morning of November 14, when the ship, while running before a moderate gale, took over a sea which smashed in the saloon doors and flooded all the cabins, wetting a good deal of the passengers' luggage. From that time until Monday, the 17th, we had very light winds. On that day, when in about lat. 53° S., Ion. 113° W., the barometer falling to 28*25, and other indications of a blow,- Captain Atwood furled the upper maintopsail, although at the time there was not much wind, and ran with only the lower topsail e...

THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

THE LABOUR MARKET. The demand for domestic servants still continues as badly supplied as ever, and employers are reduced to accept any descrip tion of house servants that will condescend to accept service. Labouring men are in demand for the country, and as a rule there is plenty of work for. those whoihke to do it. 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 annum, male do. 30s. to 80s. per week ; nursemaids, £30 to £35 per annum ; laundresses, £30 to £40 per annum.

Music [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

To give anything like a detailed account of the concerts which were crowded together so ? as to be got out of the way before the commencement of the Italian Opera season, which was opened on the 18th March, would scarcely interest the reader after this lapse of time, but amongst those that were prominent was a pianoforte recital given by Signor Giorza before a large audience at the Town-hall, in which, that clever pianist appeared as the interpreter of works differing as widely as do those of Beethoven from Thalberg, of Chopin from Bitter. The audience enjoyed all these performances. very much, because the player is possessed — like 'the jolly young waterman' — of great 'skill and dexterity' in his manipulation of the instrument ; but he was most successful with the lighter compositions of Gottschalk and Ritter than with the more massive forms of composition as displayed in the Beethoven Sonata. Again, Mr. David Lee's farewell concert at the Town-hall, on the 14th. \ilt., was a nota...

the Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

Mr. Faikclough's engagement at the Theatre Royal served as the connecting link between the success of ' The New Magdalen ' and the splendour of the Easter piece ; and for this last the management determined upon the revival of Mr. Gilbert's 'Palace of Truth,' which, con sidering' that it had previously been produced with all the disadvantages of an extemporised stage— that is to say, during what may be termed the' theatrical interregnum after the burning down of the old Theatre Royal — was hardly given, with such complete scenic accompaniments : as it deserved. With the more extended appliances of a largo, well- furnished stage, and considering that the piece offers a wide opportunity for artistic display, its re-seleotion was not only natural but judicious. And to make the attraction of the season all the more potent, it. was. bracketed with the new extravagance of . ' The Wedding March.' Now, 'The Wedding March' is one of that new class of pieces which are neither farce, comedy, b...

VISIT OF H.M.S. CHALLENGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

VISIT OF H.M.S. CHALLENGER. H.M.S.S. Challenger, which arrived in port on March 17, is the same vessel which did duty on the Australian station some years ago as the commodore's flagship. Since leaving these waters she has been recommissioned, and her cruise on the present occasion is of an entirely peaceful character. Her Armstrongs and rifled shunts and other implements of war have disappeared, and are replaced by a formidable array of instru ments devoted entirely to the furtherance of science, while all rountl the ship there are apartments fitted up for naturalists, cnemists. photographists, and others of whom the navy list makes no mention. The Challenger, it will be recollected, in command of Captain G. S.

THE KILCUNDA COAL MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

THE KILCUNDA COAL MINE. Passing allusions have been made in the Melbourne journals from time to time with respect to the mining operations being con* ducted by the Kilcunda Company for the development of a coal mine. It is now two years since work was first commenced on the seam, although its existence was known some time prior to that. Small quantities of coal from the mine have been exhibited on various occasions, but within the last few weeks a cargo — some 180 tons — has been put on the market, which suggested an inspection of the mine whence such a result had been obtained. Kilcunda — for in default of a better name that of the mine. may as well be given it — is not the most accessible of spots ; but, if the day be fine, the trip thither from Melbourne must be very enjoyable. The writer was not so fortunate. On the occasion of his visit the rain came down in torrents, and demonstrated beyond a doubt that the locality must be as supremely gloomy in wet weather as it is pleasant ...

Freemasonry [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

Fn) jjlf^?1^ That a mason may visit a masons' lodge seems such a truism as not to admit of discussion. But the question of ' right' to do so has arisen ere now, and is not entirely un minded by those to whom the honour of their lodges and the eternal principles of the craft are very dear. In reading over a report of an annual communication held at Kingston, Canada West, a.l. 6859 — a.d. 1859 — the following lines appeared to us to call for special consider ation : — ' And with very good proof, it frequently happens that a lodge is' very, jealous of charges preferred by members of a neighbouring, or perhaps, a rival lodge.' The report to which we allude was dealing with the subject of the right of visit, and amongst many well-expressed opinions against it these pregnant lines occurred. For it is not at all times agreeable to each one of the brethren in a lodge assembled to hear the name of a visitor an nounced — it may be the name of a visiting brother between whom and some one or ot...

AUSTRALASIAN STATESMEN.-No, III. THE HON. ARTHUR BLYTH. The Hon.- Arthur Blyth, the present Premier of South Australia, is a gentleman well qualified, both by ability and ex perience, for the position which he now fills. For 20 years he has been associated with the politics of the colony, and they have been eventful years in its brief history. In that association he has enjoyed the con fidence of the people, and also of their representatives, shown by his constant re election, and by his having been in office for a longer period than any other politician in South Australia. Like many other men in these colonies, Mr. Blyth has hud to light his way in life. Born in 1823 in Birming ham, he there received his education, at tending a free school superintended by the late Bishop of Peterborough. When 16. years of! age, in company with Ins parents, he quitted England for South Australia, where, in the following year, with characteristic energy, he started in business on his own account as ...
