A SPIRITUALIST EXPOSURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

A SPIRITUALIST EXPOSURE. The faith of the spiritualists has lately been put to a severe trial. It sustained a blow in its tenderest part. A medium, who has for some time been looked upon by them as a wonder worker of the highest powers, having spirit influences thoroughly at her disposal, has been put to a rather severe test, and found sadly wanting. It occurred at Castlemaine, which has for a long while been a holy place to the spiritualists. Spirits and mediums were as common there as sparrows, and miracles were every-day occurrences. The house of a ' Mr. P.' was. the principal resort of these spiritual visitors. They wqre accustomed to move fur niture without tho aid of mortal hands, shift articles about from one room to another, bring solid articles through equally solid walls without leaving a trace of their passage, and would raise tlie devotion and wonder of believers, and even of semi-sceptics, to the highest pitch, by dropping these things in the midst of an awe-stricken ex...

Fine ARTS FINE ARTS IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

FINE ARTS IN VICTORIA. The International Exhibition of 1871-2, held m Lon don, seems to have awakened the English press to the fact that there is in Australia a growing taste for Art. The r.mrmifin+,s on some of the paintings submitted have been most favourable; and the Art Journal, m its issue of February last, does a local writer upon Art subjects, the honour to appropriate, without acknowledgement, the whole of an essay contributed by him to the published catalogue of the Victorian Commissioners. The establishment of a Victorian School of Art, however, is not at present to be thought of. The colony is far too young to successfully carry out any such ambitious attempt. The cultivation of the Fine Arts demands both wealth and leisure, and the men of this generation are too busy in acquiring riches to have time for the judicious spending of their gains. Here and there, however, we see striking examples of a cultivated taste supported upon the useful foundation of a solid fortune. Ab...

THE HEADLESS TROOPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

THE HEADLESS TROOPER: ' No ; not another step, for all The troopers out of liell J I'll canip beside this swamp to-night, Despite the yai-ns you tell. I'm dead beat ; that's a solid fact ; The other thing's a sell.' And Ike gave in ; good easy Ike ; Though now and then he stole A glance across that dismal swamp, Lugubriously droll ; 'IVas plain that Headless Trooper lay Heavily on his soul. And, ere he slept, again lie told That tale of Cloody men ; ' ? ?? And how the Headless Trooper still llode nightly in the fen ; And then he slept, but in ins sleep He told it all again.

OF CAPTAIN COOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

OF CAPTAIN COOK. Saturday, 19th April, 1873, was the .103rd anniversary of the discovery of Australia by Captain James Cook, but more parti cularly of a portion of Victoria to. the westward of Cape Howe and the boundary of tho cokmies of New^ South Wales and Victoria, which tho illustrious navigator named Point Hicks, after his first lieutenant, who descried it as they at daybreak approached the hitherto unknown coast. A few days later Captain Cook landed at Botany Bay, and took possession of the whole region under the title of New South Wales. Tho New South Wales people commomorated the centenary of Australian discovery by a suitable monument, but Victoria has not as yet done anything to identify herself therewith, though she is fully entitled— nay, in duty bound — io do so, if even. a portion of her territory had not been the first Australian land sighted on 19th April, 1770.

A FRENCH TRANSPORT SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

A FRENCH TRANSPORT SHIP. A Frhxoh steamer named L'Orne, bound for New Caledonia, called in at this port on April 19 for supplies. She had on board over 500 Communist prisoners, under sentence of deportation to New Caledonia. The visit of the L'Orne was due to the fact of scurvy haying made its appearance on board to such an extent that a supply of fresh provisions, drugs, and water was impera* tively required. The majority of the convicts had been more or less afflicted, but notwithstanding the spread of the malady, only three deaths occurred during the voyage. The outbreak of tho disease was occasioned mainly by the low physical condition of the men when taken from prison and the continued course of salt pro visions at sea. The prisoners were located on the main deck, in apartments of simple but secure construction, which may be briefly described as square wooden frames with vertical iron rods — in fact, cages. Tho insubordinate and refractory were not so com fortably berthed, and ...

INCIDENTS OF EXPERIENCE IN THE OLDEN TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

INCIDENTS OF EXPERIENCE IN THE OLDEN TIME. By a Pionker. of '39. Thb first generation of settlers is passing away, leaving but a meagre history, of their personal doings and feelings to those who succeed them. The public record of facts and figures will, no doubt, be ample to prove satisfactorily to after ages- the pro gress made from year to year, but there will be little to show what manner of men they were who secured the foundation for this progress, or what difficulties they encountered when leading a pastoral life, and wandering with their Hocks and herds over a country fresh from the hands of Nature. Yet, although no country could well bo more fitted for ready occupation than this was, we had our difficulties and dangers by flood and field — troubles and dangers only to be overcome by an amount of pluck and perseverance for which, new chums are inclined to give the pioneers little credit. However, we settled the country in pre paration for them, and a glorious time wo had of ...

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. It is a singular fact, and it is one, which is much to be regretted, that our native youth, with but few exceptions, pass through the usual curriculum of study taught at our schools, and glide away almost imperceptibly into all the cares and anxieties which a bread-winning life imposes, without having acquired any knowledge whatsoever of the many forms, as varied as they are beautiful, which Nature opens .up for those who will inquire into her mysterious works. The causes of regret are many, but the chief are that, apart from the great value which it may be to a man in these days of development of colonial resources to be able to apply the knowledge he has acquired in his boyhood to mining, metallurgy, mineralogy, medicine, and so on, an ac quaintance with all that is beautiful in creation tends to tone down our colonial youth to a certain degree of civilisation, which so many unhappily lack, whilst a practical study imparts method and perseverance—...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

^^^^^JilllllllllliJilliiSIiSMfiilHIIIiiillfi^^^^Sl] The lite of Johann Sprinckhorn, whoso portrait we give elsewhere, affords another instance of the powerful in , flxience music exercises over those who are more than usually susceptible to its charm. Born in Hamburgh in . 1811, of parents . in comfortable circumstances, young Sprinckhorn received a mercantile training, and developed at the same time the possession of a voice of rich quality, and great aptitude in the practice of music. A prosperous business career, relieved by the practice of his favourite art, was brought to an untoward ending by the great fire in Hamburgh in 1842, and he thenxcommenced the wandering life whose recent close in Melbourne we. thus chronicle. The next 13 or 14 years were spent by him in travelling throughout Austria and Hungary as a dealer in flour and grain, but from. - our recollection of his conversation, when referring to. this period of his life, it would seem that the claims of business were on...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

^fl /^ ^limii' ' » _^ll%FM[iir?i-f The Autumn Meeting of the Australian Jockey Club, which took place on Easter Monday and the following Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, was the most successful on record in New South Wales. The now Governor (Sir Hercules Robinson) is a great patron of the turf, and takes a very lively interest in it. During the fortnight- previous to the races he was frequently on the training ground to witness the gallops, and each day of the meeting he drove to the course four in hand with Lady Robinson and family, also accompanied by His Excellency Mr. Charles Ducane, the Governor of Tasmania, who was on a visit to Sydney at the time, and. was the guest of Sir Hercules Robinson. The latter ran a colt, called Fitz-Yattendon, in the A. J.C. Sires' Produce Stakes, but was not fortunate enough to get a place ; but his colours were loudly cheered on the course. There were a great many visitors from this colony present ; amongst them the Hon. J. O'Shanassy, Messrs. O. B...

FANTOCCINI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

FANTOCCINI. ' And this is the ?\vorid that turns upon its own axis, and has Lunar Influences, and revolutions round Heavenly Bodies, and various games of that sort ! This is human nature, is it ?' — Sampson Brass. In the Ethnographical collection in the British Museum, Madam,* is a mask formed, of part of a human skull, coated with a mosaic of turquoise and obsidian, the eyeballs of iron pyrites, highly polished, and enriched with white shell ; the mouth is made to open, and the inside is lined with red leather. I need scarcely mention to one who studies the advertising columns of The Argus so carefully as yourself, that the obvious conclusion to be drawn from this fact is that Winkletip's Vegetable Pills are invaluable in all cases of stomachic derangement, and that a con siderable saving is ofFected by taking the larger quan tities. * . * * Did I desire to be rich — which Heaven forfend — I should invent a Pill of this kind, and advertise it after this fashion.

Sketches OUR AGENTS-GENERAL.—NO. II. : MR. R. DAINTREE, AGENT-GENERAL FOR QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

OUR AGENTS-GENERAL. ? NO. II. : MB. R. DAINTREE, AGENT-GENERAL FOR QUEENSLAND. Mr. R. Daintree, whose portrait is presented on another page,- is nearly as well known in Victoria as in Queensland. He resided in Victoria from 1852 to 1864, and during nine years of this period was engaged on the staff' of the Geological Survey of our' colony. He thus enjoyed great opportunities of perfecting his knowledge of practical geology, in which department of science he was recognised as an acute and reliable observer. ? He also enjoyed the reputation whilst among us of being a fair chemist and metallurgist, and an excellent photographer. When we . add that Mr. Daintree is a thorough bushman, and capable of endming great fatigue, it might be expected that he would prove a valuable colonist, a. title which he seems, indeed, fairly to have earned. In 1863 Mr. Daintree, whilst on. a trip to Northern Queensland, was so struck with the 'geological conditions there developed as indicative of great min...

ABOUT THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

ABOUT THE OITY. PeopI/E who have been away from Melbourne for 10 or, a dozen years find a wonderful change in the city. The suburbB have extended in. a remarkable manner, especially northwards ; mansions have taken the place of temporary dwellings in .the environs we are fond of describing as 'aristocratic;' stores that deserve the designation of palatial have been built in large numbers in the commercial'part of the city, and some of our public buildings are grand enough to challenge comparison with similar structures in the old country. In like manner our public parks and gardens have, .with the exception of ' the Botanical gardens and those dreary wastes under the control of the City Council, been greatly improved ; and as, the streets are well lighted, and the supply of water is abundant, we have generally the aspect of a people whose material wants are well cared for. In respect of sanitary arrangements, too, it is to be confessed we - have made' some advancement. We are, indee...
