MOUNT COOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

MOUNT COOK. Mount Cook is the loftiest sierra of a magnificent chain of mountains which stretches from Cape Farewell, the moBt northerly point of the South Island of New Zealand, down to the head of Preservation Inlet, its general direction corresponding with the line of the West Coast. The sharply-cut outline of this snowy peak is the first object which attracts the eye of the tourist as the steamer nears the land ; and during the run down from Hokitika to Nelson it continues to be visible for nine or ten hours, resembling, when last discernible, an iceberg floating on the sea. Its altitude is 13,200ft., and nearly reaches, therefore, that of the Jungfrau, in the Bernese Alps, while it exceeds that of the Ortler Spitz, in the Rhetian Alps, and is 1,600ft. higher than the peak of Mulhacen,' which is the culminating point of the Sierra Nevada in the south of Spain. The Southern Alps— as the mountain system to which this eminence belongs is generally called — embrace numerous aiguille...

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

THE ESCAPED COMMUNISTS. (PROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, MARCH 30.) The arrival in Sydney of those celebrities of the Commune who have escaped from New Caledonia naturally created some excitement on Saturday. The three who are at the Cafe de France are Messieurs Rochefort. Jourde. and Grousset. Thev decline to give particulars of their escape, not wishing to impli cate any parties. M. Rochefort, it is said, in making his escape from New Caledonia, with his companions, regretted that he, as well as they, were unable to carry their papers with them, It is stated that as soon as the escapees knew from the heaving of the ship that she was out of the reefs, they made their appearance on deck. When they presented themselves suddenly the captain had some misgivings that their design was to seize the vessel ; but his fears were dispelled by a statement from Rochefort, who told the captain that they were simply exiles trying to make their escape irom New Caledonia. Each gave a name, although...

HUMOURS OF THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

HUMOURS OF THE ELECTIONS. The time of a general.election is full of humour to the student of life and manners, and our Sketcher with Pencil has seized upon some of the salient points of it. The ' Presentation of a Requisition' is the beginning of trouble. This is supposed to be looked upon by mere outsiders as the spontaneous action of a numerous and highly influential body of electors, who have at heart the best interests of 'their adopted,' or 'their native country,' as the case may be. It is as well to observe that in general elections there are numbers of 'highly influential,' &c, who Would wish to treat the ailments of the body politic, or human, upon principles as widely different as those of Mastai Ferretti and Brigham Young ; or, to mention a different kind of doctors, let us say Hahnemann and Holloway. As far as the requisition goes, those who present it and those who receive it knowallaboutitlongbeforeitbecomespublicproperty. Speaking in general terms, it is very o...

MUSTRMLMSIMN KETCHER SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1874. ARCHITECTURE IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1874. ARCHITECTURE IN MELBOURNE. We have from tinie to time given in the pages of The Australasian Sketcher engravings of many new or contem plated structures of importance in Melbourne. We should be glad could we entertain the belief that these were in all cases calculated to convey a high idea of the aesthetic standard of architectural design and public taste in this city. It would, however, be vain to believe that this is the case. Neither are we able to shut our eyes to the fact that the effect of the whole is often still more questionable in ?this respect than the design of the various component parts. Buildings that in themselves are not without considerable architectural merit, are often found grouped in a manner that produces great incongruity of total effect. Each has been designed as a separate work, utterly without considera tion of its harmony with the erections around, or the influence that each will exercise on the impression produced by the others,...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 18 April 1874

^jjtl^^^-^i^^MM^^^ESffiHSBEifiiiSBS^BiljMl^^ffli Since our last the first and second sets of elections have been held, and only one more is required to complete the new Parliament. The result has, so far, not been very favourable to the Government, the country apparently being in no humour to countenance any great constitutional experiments which could only be carried out at the risk, if not with the certainty, of throwing everything into confusion. ? It is evident, we think, that the Ministry has altogether misinterpreted the feeling of the constituencies. There is a very general dread of another deadlock, and a universal desire to go on steadily with the practical business which is awaiting attention. The free- trade- party are disappointed to' .find that, after waiting patiently for two years, during which a truce had been proclaimed as regards all fiscal matters, there is to be no revision of the tariff. Four if not five of the Ministers are freetraders, and people are asking wh...

A DESERTED TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

A DESERTED TOWN. Nothing is more curious to an intelligent observer, or more illustrative of the changefulness which is so universal a condition of human life, than to see how early in the settlement of a new country it commences to show occasional signs of ruin and decay. Mistakes are made m settlement, places are founded to supply temporary wants and are afterwards abandoned, townships are laid out, thrive and grow with great rapidity, and then by a change of the lines of traffic they lose their business, are deserted by the population, and soon add the view of desolate and mouldering buildings to the dreary aspect of the bush, and tend to deepen its gloom and intensify its silence and solitude. Here is a strange episode of life in Queensland, described by the Georgetown correspondent of the Cleveland Bay Express: — 'It remained for Gilberton to furnish the spectacle— never before witnessed on any other gold-field in Australia or California, or any other part of the world, and onl...

Sketches with Pen THE HON. JULIUS VOGEL, C.M.G. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

THE HON. JULIUS VOGEL, C.M.G. The Honourable Julius Vogel belongs to that class of self* made men to which the Australian colonies are indebted for their rough and ready, their unscientific but not unserviceable statesmanship. We have no school of carefully -trained, officially-disciplined, and highly-educated politicians in Aus. tratia and New Zealand— no party organisations possessing anything like permanence— no administrative or legislative traditions— and no well-defined gradations in public life. We pick up. the materials of our governmental machinery. wherever we can find them, piece them together as well as we can, .without much regard to congruity and fitness, and make the beat of the impromptu mechanism. In countries peopled by the Latin races such a haphazard method of procedure would be fraught with danger, and would inevitably conduce to mischievous results ; but in all English-speaking communities the capacity for self government is so speedily developed that the imper...

EXTRAORDINARY MUTINY AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

EXTRAORDINARY MUTINY AT SEA. Information has been received of an extraordinary mutiny on board the barque Satsuma, William Leslie, master, of Sunder land, bound to the Cape of Hood Hope. The mutiny took place on the 29th January, in lat. 31° S.. long. 24° W. It appears that at 5 o clock on the morning of the day named the steward went up to the second mate and seized him by the shoulders ; two of the sailors at the same tima came to the assistance of the steward. The mate was thrown on deck ; one of the men got on the top of him, another held a pistol to his forehead, and said if he spoke he would blow his brains out. The men then tied the mate's arms and legs, and put him down the after hold. About the same time three men rushed into the cabin of the captain, who was asleep. The captain gives the following account of what ensued:— 'One of the men, the instant I raised my noad, put a rope with a Blip-knot over it, trying to strangle me ; another hold a hatchet above me ; the third h...

ON THE WATTS RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

ON THE WATTS RIVER. Dusing the flying visit which Mr. Gully made to this colony last year, an opportunity was afforded him of making a few sketches of Victorian scenery ; and one of these has now been engraved. It represents a bend in the Watts River, an affluent of the Yarra rising among the lofty ranges of which Mount Juliet constitutes one of the most conspicuous features. This stream — which, like Othello's sword, is 'of the ice-brook's temper ' — winds amidst some of the loveliest sylvan scenery to be met with in this part of the world, although its precise course is a matter of conjecture rather than of definition, for some of the forests which fringe its banks have never been invaded by human foot, and are, indeed, impenetrable. As shown in the engraving, the timber, which rises to an immense height, is as closely packed as what Sir Walter Scott calls 'a plump of spears;' and the underwood is dense, luxuriant, and thickly matted. Where tracks have been opened and clearances h...

AUSTRALASIAN. SKETCHER SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1874. SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1874. SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION'. What incompleteness or misdirection may exist in the educational arrangements of any community assumes a special importance when those arrangements are devised and carried out by the Government. In any other case, it may be said that the law of supply and demand will provide that the education afforded will correspond to the wishes of those who pay for it. But when a Government has taken the responsibility of framing and working the educational machinery of the country into its own hands, we have not this assurance. It may be that, owing to adherence to traditional standards, or servility to example, wrong, or at any rate antiquated, objects are chosen, and the teaching power of the state may bo in a great measure wasted, because unintelligently applied. These considera tions have special weight in the case of Victoria. Here the Government and the Parliament have worked upon the idea that education is to be a duty, and a highly importan...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

The Easter entertainment at the Theatre Royal was not a successful venture, for though ' ' The Wedding March' amused people for awhilo, the revival of 'The Palace of Truth' was but a kind of failure. Nobody could quite explain why it was a failure, for it took exceedingly well when first produced at St. George's Hall. To be sure, the modification in the cast might have had something to do with it, for Mr. Dampier, it is quite clear, cannot take Mr. Ireland's place. The scenery was very beautiful, and the dresses resplendent ; but all to no purpose. But when Mr. * Ireland played Hamlet on the eighth night after the first representation of ' The Palace of Truth,' the house was crowded from basement to rafters, a tolerably conclusive testimony to the interest taken in the performance ; for there could bo no novelty in ' Hanilet,' and there was no scenic illustration to make the occasion a specially attractive one. The public, however, were manifestly desirous of recog nising the endeav...

R) ^^f-^7-Mricuxm^ On Thursday, the 28th of this month, the Annual Masonic Ball will be held in the Town-hall. It is called an annual ball now, because custom has brought with it a kind of prescriptive recognition ; and the event is looked forward to with as great eagerness by those who have not seen the Masonic light as by those who have enjoyed that privilege. Indeed, the advertisements which have appeared in the papers seem as if, in some sense, they were addressed to the world at large. Brother F. C. Standish, D.G.M., E. C. , will be chairman. The vice-chairmen will be the Hon. J. T. Smith, M.P., P.M.G., I.C., and Mr. Fred. Barnes, D.P.G.M., S.C. Treasurers — Mr. H. W. Lowry and Mr. T. Moubray, J.P. Honorary Secretaries — Mr. A.

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

It would really seem of late as if the people here in Mel bourne were acting under some illogical rule with respect to their treatment of operatic performances. The greater the exertions made by the management to induce a large attend ance on the part of the public, the less becomes the patronage awarded to the entertainment. Since the Easter week — when, certainly, a magnificent business was done — the affairs of the operatic stage have languished, although there have been performances given that were brilliantly successful in point of artistic merit. It may be said that the absorbing influence of a general election dis tracted men's minds from the opera, and that a short season of politics possessed more zest for the generality of them than could be found in music. But if the men's minds were biassed by election matters, so too must have been the women's minds as well, for they have made themselves as conspicuous by their absence as anyone else. Is it safe, we' wonder, to hazard t...
