Tho niarkot for silver shares, after tho settlement of tho labor difficulty at Broken Hill, had a sensational rise, prices bounding up rapidly, and the business transacted during the latter, portion of . the month was very similar to that of the silver boom of 1888.

EUROPEAN ITEMS. LONDON, 11TH OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

EUROPEAN ITEMS. [PUOM OVll OORHESl'ONDENT. J LONDON, 11th October. The new romantic opera, The Castle i of Oorao, composed by Major George Cockle, arid produced at tho Opera Oomique- on '2nd October,' only achieved a moderate amount of success. It is constructed on the ! same lines as the ballad oporas of Bdlfe and Wallaoe, and is free from any admixture of tho opera-bouffe . clemont. Tho story is founded on Lord Lytton's drama, Tho Lady of Lyons, but an absurd scene is introduced, apparently for no reason but to justify the title, of the opora, whore, aftor Claude's description of his mythical palace, the mine en'scenc is made to. disappear and to be replaced by the imaginary 'Castle of Oomo.' Some of the music is pretty, and a goorl performance was given. ' . . - .The Co vent Garden Promenade Concerts have proyed so - successful that an extra season of four weeks has boon commenced, classical nights still being a feature of tho schome. Mr. G.

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

NEW SOUTH WALES. [from our correspondent.] Shortly after my last lettor was despatched three curious musical events took place on the same evening, viz., the annual concert of the Euphonic Orohostral Society, at the Protestant Hall ; a concert given entirely by ladies, at tho Y.M.C.A. Hall; and an outdoor serenade to Mr. Santley by the Sydney Liedertafel, nt Petty 's Hotel. The first of these functions would not need notice, but that his Excellency Lord Carrington is patron, an alderman and ex mayor of Sydney president, and a justioe of the Supreme Court vice-president of -the Euphonio Orchestral Society. This association of ladies and gentlemen has been established since 1872, by a Mr. Henry Graham, and gives one annual entertainment (?) in which the prof usenesa of the oaoophony is only- mitigated by the pro fuseness of the decorations.: The music per formed is of an ambitious and more or less classical order, and is vooiferously applauded by a orowded audience, consisting of the ...

THE KAISER WILHELM II. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 2 December 1889

THE KAISER WILHELM II. A great, deal has been said about this mammoth ship, she being fitted up not only luxuriantly, but with all the modern appliances to make her one of tho fastest long voyage ships afloat. It may first be stated that the intro duction of such ships of the Norddeutschcr Lloyd's line shortly after the starting of the Messageries Maritimes liners shows the growing importance of the Australian colonies is being recognised by all the great nations. The Kaiser Wilhelm II. was specially built for the Australian service by the Vulcan Company, of Stettin, and is of the following dimensions: : — Length, 450 feet ; beam, 51 feeot; and depth, 37 feet, which gives the gross tonnage as 6600.

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

POPULARITY OF MUSIC. II. Vocal and dance music are always more       popular than any other kind. The dance is   strongly rhythmical, and admits in some cases, as in waltzes, of the addition of a certain amount of sentiment. Music allied with words answers the question, constantly put by the   unenlightened— What does it mean? What is   it about? There is no mistaking the meaning when words are used to express it, and every   listener is capable of forming an opinion as to how far the composer has succeeded in making his music correspond in sentiment with the verse. The same reason explains the popularity of what is known as programme music, and of fanciful       titles attached to instrumental compositions. Among Beethoven's symphonies the most generally popular is the Pastorel, not because it is intrinsically more beautiful than the others, but because ...

His death was not unexpected, as he had been ailing for some time. The funeral took place at the Melbourne Cemetery on Saturday afternoon. The procession left the residence of the deceased, Little Dorrit-street, Carlton, .at 4 o'clock, and proceeded to the     cemetery, where, many representatives of Mel- bourne trades societies and others were waiting,   to pay a last tribute of respect to one who had won general esteem during his life.

The crops are genorally heavy, the exceptions being few, and the total yield is certain to be largely- in excess of the average of former years, though ' the heavy rains of last month injured tho crops in some places, and rust has also caused damage, but it is not widely preva lent.
