THE ORCHESTRA. No. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

THE ORCHESTRA. No. IV. But the true work of the orchestra, that is to say, music performed by instruments alone, is the sphere in which- the orchestra, pure and simple, is heard- at its . best. ? Instrumental Accompaniments such as those that we aro accustomed to .hear at the opera, in oratorios and other - conoerts ' are - inestimably . valuable, not only as a grand and dignified addition to tho vocal work, but as the second most important portion of the composition. Tn an oratorio such as the 'Messiah,' a work which was composed whenorohestral music was in ita infancy, and when many of the instrumental resources com monly heard in the present day were jn a stato of almost barbaric crudenesa, the orchestra is used as little more than a frame: in .which ;to hangthomaguiflceht vocal pictures with whioh the work abounds. , The overture, for instance, con sists, after a few bars of adagio in which certain wind instruments aro sparingly used, of merely a short movement in fugal. stylo f...

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

^\|jj|^RES-J|! Mr. G. C. Miln has been struggling hard against the stream for the past month, with tho result that he [has been obliged to succumb. Antony and Cleopatra was produced in a more creditable wav. It was magnifi cently s+aged. The painting, mechanical effects, tho music, dancing and general accessories were . really splendid, and irre proachable in matter of detail, but everything was marred by Miss Jordan insisting upon tak ing the part of Cleopatra, for which she was altogether unsuited. Enormous expense was involved in rendering the revival a success, but owing to the cause alluded to it proved a frost and a disappointment to all. concerned. Then Mr. Miln became invalided, and he was obliged to withdraw tempo rarily from active management. Romeo and Juliet was revived with features, if possible, more objectionable, Miss Jordan, despite all remonstrances, taking the part of the love siok heroine. The result, briefly stated, has been that Mr. Miln has by overwork, worry ...

A VISIT IN 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

A VISIT IN 1845. .The extraordinary natural beauties of Port Arthur have made this spot one of the show places of Tasmania. But _until 1841 the peninsula was locked to the stranger, tliou'h after the probationary system came into voguo the place be came easier of access. An interesting description of a visit in ±b-k- was puonsiiea anonymously some time afterwards. The writer narrates how he found the commandant's house in beautiful order, surrounded by gardens and, shrubberies, and the quarters of his officers were pictures of comfort and prettiness. Adjoining stood the barracks, a building with battlements', and altogether formidable looking. Behind was a lunatic asylum and a largo hospital. At times 300 to 400 souls were detained here. There was a court house where tho commandant adminislcd 'justice,' assisted by the officers of the troops, and also a paid magistrate.

POINT PUER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

POINT PUER. Colonel Arthur took great interest in the settlement which bears his name, and which he visited frequently. Ho declared that 7000 men might be sent there to be detained six months on an average, and that the large expenditure would bo repaid by the production of Mieir labor. One of the most remarkable branches of the settlement was the reformatory at Point Puer, intended to reclaim and control children who had been transported from England. It had been customary to send to Tasmania boys in company ^with older criminals, and very little, if any, distinction was made, in their treat ment. Yet some of these unfortunate youths had hardly attained the age at which to expect from them a clear per ception of right and wrong. It is stated, for instance, that a child only seven years old had been transported for life, and that of 60 boys who arrived in the colony in 1829, 20 could not repeat the Lord's Prayer. One, when asked his age, innocently replied, , ' I was so young when I...

The colony prospered, the convict population was held' in subjection, the lawless were held under restraint, and comparative tranquillity prevailed. His position .was peculiar and complicated, ashe had on the one hand to deal with the Imperial Government, and on the other with the free. settlers and their conflicting interests. , By the Home Government the settlement, was regarded merely as a depot for the. retention of offenders against the law.

SKETCHES AT PORT ARTHUR, TASMANIA. PRELUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

SKETCHES AT PORT ARTHUR, TASMANIA. l'HELUDR No land in the world possesses more lovely landscapes than Tasmania — that country of piny mountains, smiling dales and broad,.,., rapid rivers. The . romantic forma tion of its high lands, its bold and picturesque coast line, its hays of unsurpassable loveliness and its verdure clad undulating . valleys take captive with a first glance,- the stranger's eye and -senses, and it thenceforth is rto him the most beautiful' of ? islands. A Tosmanian .sky is usually clear and brilliant, ? and the atmosphere dry, pure and clastic. But her numerous snow capped mountains cause the coldest of cold winds to blow on a summer day, 'and a fall in the mercury of 50 deg. in an afternoon. The splendor of a summer morning's sun is not unfrequently replaced at, lioon by mist and rain. Yet despite the changcablcness of its climate the island is a perfect gem set in an emerald sea, and no number of mere words can adequately describe the loveliness and gran deu...
