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

' The best meeting ever held atRandwick' is the general verdict with respect to the late Autumn Meeting of the A.J.C. There were about 15,000 persons present on the first day, including all the quality from the Governor and party and a numerous Victorian contingent. On the first day the pieces de resistance, as the sporting reporters love to term the principal events, were the Champagne Stakes and the Leger. For the former a moderate field of 11 stripped, and His Excellency's colt Kingsborough, by Kingston, was the best of the lot, winning easily. The Governor also ran second with Nea, by Lord of Lynne. Gaslight, by Talk of the Hill, from this colony, was third; The Leger fur nished a sensation in that Mr. Tait's two, Goldsbrough (the Sylvia colt) and Rose d'Amour, ran first and second, no one expecting to see either of them placed. The favourites were the Governor's colt Fitz-Yattendon. by Ynttendon, and Master M'Grath. ' Fitz' ran third, and was very injudiciously ridden. Nine sta...

9 M ?T ^A-i »?»?-&-», .'vT-'V. ^^r-m ^J- «-j-^ ^^'{'i *Y»*/'* U&X& v\ To an idler — which I always am when I am doing nothing — the sight of groups of men standing under the 'Verandah, and engaged in earnest conversation, or eagerly discussing some point as they walk in twos and threes down Collins street, is very impressive. An idler in that part of: Mel bourne is apt to feel rather mean. There is a mystery about the doings of those commercial men that weighs upon the mind. An idler wandering, a stranger in a strange land, through, these paths of business and speculation, has the fact forced upon him. that he is a nobody. He has nothing to buy or to sell. He has no right to be there. This is the . haunt of the bee and the ant, and the idle butterfly should seek the other side of the street, and flit about among the flowers of South Yarra, from whom no sugar is to be extracted, unless one should haply taste of the sweetness of their lips. I always had this so...

THE EXPLORATION OF COLONEL WARBURTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

THE EXPLORATION OF COLONEL WARBURTON. The most notable event that has for a long time occurred in connexion 'with Australian exploration is the expedition of Colonel P. Egerton Warburton, from the centre of the continent to the west coast. The country crossed was wholly unknown and its difficulties had baffled the efforts of several brave ex plorers who had endeavoured to cross it, amongst whom may be named Mr. Forrest and the Gregories. At length the liberality of Mr. Elder and Mr. Hughes, who fitted out and supported the expedition, and the enterprise and patient daring of Colonel Warburton were successful in overcoming the great dangers and obstacles of the task, and a line has been now drawn through the midst of the great blank space to the westward, which occupied so large a portion of maps of Australia; . - From the South Australian Register we quote the following narrative of the journey : — ' It is now nearly a ycsarsinceColonel Warburton started from Alice Springs— one of '...

THE SOURCE OF THE YARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 16 May 1874

THE SOURCE OF THE YARRA. Our engraving gives a view of the source of the River Yarra, taken by one of the members of a party of three who, in December lost, started as an exploring party to travel from Mount Baw Baw to the head of the Yarra, through the difficult and untravelled mountain ranges that intervened. An account, published in The Argus, gives the following narrative of the trip :— "It was shortly after noon on December 11 last that the party arranged their swags, shouldered them, and left the township of Tangil, en route for the summit of the Baw Baw. Each swag weighed about 28lb., and the whole lading consisted of the following articles:—   Three blankets, weighing nearly 3lb. each; a small single barrelled fowling piece, with ammunition; a couple of toma hawks ; a small tent-fly, 6ft. by 6ft., weighing about 3lb.; 10lb. flour, 10lb. biscuit, 2lb. tea, 10lb. sugar, 8lb. German sausage, three pots of Liebig's extract of beef, and a bottle of cognac of warrante...

Sketches with Pen A SERIES OF MARITIME DISASTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

1 '*''' ? ??**'*-'?-?*?-' ? --'*????— ?????? ? ---??? ??-???????? ? ?,-.-—, 4 A SERIES OF MARITIME DISASTERS. Some strange fatality lias caused a singular series of similar accidents to ships-bound to this port, no less than four vessels from England to Australian ports having come into Hobson's Bay dismasted. The circumstances of the various cases present many points of resemblance. All of the vessels were built of iron and with iron masts. With the exception of the first of the series, the Dallam Tower, the others have all been new, and have met with this disaster on their first voyage. In addition to this series of accidents a large ship, the. British Admiral, was, on May 23, lost on King's Island, and 79 persons, passengers and crew, came to an untimely end. So remarkable a run of coincidences deserves some detailed notice by way of accompani ment to the engravings which are given in this issue. Having on an earlier occasion fully dealt with the case of the Dallam Tower, we need...

PERILS OF MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

: PERILS OF MINING; - No kind of life is surrounded with terrible dangers in so many forms as that of the, miner. Working' there far underground, driving his narrow gallery deep in the strata of the earth; far from the light and the fresh air, and the fair face of the country, the miner is always liable to attack from theblinddread forces of Nature upon which he is making war with his pick and drill. There is first the condition of enormous superincumbent weight, against which he has to contend, and which shows itself by broken props, by runs of quicksand, by frightful rushes of water, and sometimes by resistless collapse, in which the miner and his tools and his puny works are suddenly crushed' and overwhelmed, as earth closes upon earth with mighty pressure. There is also the danger of foul air, of water breaking in from old workings, and many others. Besides all these there are the perils caused by the miner's own instruments and appliances, when a defective rope or decaying timb...

Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

Miss Howard concluded her engagement at the Theatre Royal on the 22nd ult. She produced during this period the 'Geneva Cross,' the 'Wandering Heir,'! and 'Solid Silver,'' the last-named play being the work of an American author.. Besides sustaining the principal parts in these, Miss Howard appeared as Pauline in the 'Lady of Lyons,' as Nancy in ' Oliver Twist,' and as Romeo and Lady Gay Spanker. ? She fully established her. claim to the possession of much taste and intelligence, and, in respect of appearance and costume, she will not soon be out-rivalled. But she did not. succeed in removing the feeling created on the first occasion of her appearing, that she has not much power, that she is not capable of expressing strong passion, and that her intonation has the fault which all actresses trained in the American 'school possess. For all; this she has exhibited a certain quality of natural refine ment, which was evidently felt, as it was . certainly agree ably acknowledged, by the au...

THE TORCHLIGHT PROCESSION OF THE FIRE BRIGADES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

THE TORCHLIGHT PROCESSION OF THE FIRE BRIGADES. The gathering of the fire brigades in Melbourne last year proved so successful that it was determined to repeat it this year, and this time, as before, the chief feature in it was the . torchlight procession. This time, however, the proportions of the affair expanded. The gathering was much larger, and the number of firemen swelled from 460 men, representing 21 ; brigades, to 870 men, representing 37 brigades. The interest of the 'public in the sight was also very much augmented, and the . concourse of people in the streetB of Melbourne on the night of May 25, when it was held, was almost unprecedented. The various brigades mustered between 6 and 7 o'clock in the evening, in Spencer-street, opposite the railway station, and were formed into column with a band at the head, and four other bands placed along the line at suitable intervals. The process of marshalling into order was effected with as little confusion as could be expected, un...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

A second season of Italian opera commenced on Monday, the. 18th May; between that time and the 12th of the month, when the first season came to an end,, the whole of the forces under the control of the Lyster and Cagli management were divided into two companies, land spent four days each at Geelong and Ballarat, to the great satisfaction of the towns people, at those places, and generally to the benefit of managerial business. Melbourne is not a .very large place, and the position of manager of an opera company is neces sarily one of great prominence; and the manager's success in a costly undertaking is quite as interesting, and as much a matter for discussion, as the production of 'La Juive' or the promise of 'Don Giovanni.' The new season brought with it a return to the old scale of prices, but the success of the undertaking so far has not been great. It does not seem to excite surprise in the mind of . anyone that while this want of success should be gene rally deplored, no one t...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1874. INTERCOLONIAL JEALOUSY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1874. INTERCOLONIAL JEALOUSY. We hear a good deal at times about 'intercolonial ' jealousy' as. a powerful element in determining questions concerning the relations between the colonies, and yet there is great reason to doubt whether such a feeling exists to any extent to give it the slightest power, or to entitle it to the least notice. Of jealousy between rival politicians in different colonies, or jealousy between competing merchants in different capitals, there is plenty, no doubt, as we have too often had occasion to witness. But of jealousy between one community as a whole and another as a whole, or between any considerable class in two communities which, have no actual trade rivalry, there is very little evidence, although for sinister ends the existence of the feeling is very often taken for granted. For instance, take what is usually;, regarded as the strongest case of the kind — the relations of Victoria and New South Wales — and try to estimate the exte...
