THE TRANSIT OF VENUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

THE TRANSIT OF VENUS. At a meeting of the Royal Society of Victoria on the 11th of May, the preBident.l Mr. R. \L. J. Ellery, Government astro nomer, read an interesting paper on the transit of Venus, which will take place next December. Having described the nature of the phenomenon, and the steps which had been taken for observing it in various parts of the world, he stated the nature of the preparations which were being made in this colony. 'There are,' he said, 'to be two principal observing stations in the colony besides the Observatory, and it is hoped that one or two minor ones, under amateur observers, may be added to the list. There is no great choice of places, in an astronomical point of view, within the limits of the colony, and, therefore, the principal consideration in selection will be the chance of clear sky. The summit of Mount Alexander, nearly 4,000ft. high, has been selected as one, and either Echuca or Wangaratta as another of the principal stations — both access...

SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION AND THE BALLARAT SCHOOL OF MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION AND THE BALLARAT SCHOOL OF MINES. In reference to our leader in last issue upon this subject, the registrar of the BallaratSchool of Mines has forwarded to us a copy of a pamphlet^ giving a statement of the objects and present re sources of the school, and a reportof the progress made. His reason for doing so is to show that we are not at the present time wholly destitute of the means of imparting scientific instruction, at any rate in the mining industry. The note with which the registrar accompanies the pamphlet, however, shows that the work of the school is very much restricted by its insufficient resources, as he says that it 'is now, and has been for some few terms, attended by 50 students or so, and but for being crippled by so small a grant (only £500 per annum), might have been vastly more suc cessful.' When it is remembered that the Ballarat School of Mines is the principal attempt, and almost the only successful attempt, made in the colony to impart sc...

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

p=| *JffifaF7MmziMm-^ Since this was written a Masonic Ball has taken place at the Town-hall, and there have been the meetings of Masons and their wives, their sons and their daughters, which exhibit the constitution of good society. The term is one which has a relative significance. There are all sorts of ' societies,' which are ' good' to those who are anxious to be admitted to them. There is the society into which the seedy, the needy, and the greedy try hard to find admission, because it makes display of the possession of wealth, and that is the one attribute most envied by the earnest devo tees who wait upon the threshold. There aro societies learned, pious, eclectic, and even profane, into which there are always numbers of people eager to gain admission, for no better reason -than that they have an ill-defined and attractive guess at what is hidden from them. The inquiring spirit which has done so much for the world is one which should be encouraged. The more frank the encoura...

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

S: ?*«?'.? ;^w s*T*rf'-*w*^VirJ^ The law makes it imperative that a man shall support his wife and family as long as he is earning enough to do so ; and we have lately had a case before the public where, when a gentleman's attachment for his family ceased, and he had left them, the Supreme Court ordered that an attachment for all his available property, amounting to some £16,000, should commence, so that they might be secured in a decent income in his absence. The arrows of the blind god being blunted, and no longer able to pierce the bosom of this unnatural husband and father, the sword of the blind goddess was pressed into the service to pierce him in a more vulnerable,'' and, perhaps, tenderer part — his money-bags. It is, of course, quite right that men should support their families ; but I think there should bo some provision on the other side, and that children should . be compelled to pay in proportion to their means for the maintenance of their aged and helpless parents.

SERICULTURE IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

SERICULTURE IN AUSTRALIA. In our last issue we devoted an illustration and an article to the industry of sericulture as established in Victoria. More recently, Mrs. Neill, the active promoter of the industry, has sent to the newspapers an extract from a letter from Mr. Hawdon Brown, of Venice, .speaking very favourably of a consignment of Australian cocoons sent to Italy, that their quality might be tested and their value ascertained. 'These cocoons,' says Mrs. Neill, ' were a reproduction of Mr. Brady'B Queensland buff race, and not the celebrated Roland Brian za. If these are considered so good, what may we not hope to achieve when the best food is grown, and this European grain is reproduced in thousands of ounces ?' The following is the extract referred to : — 'Venice, March 20, 1874. — The cocoons from Australia sent by Mrs. Neill were shown to the principal silk proprietors and cultivators in Venetia and Lombardy. The quality was highly appreciated, and the cocoons declared to...

CHRONICLE-OF-THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

Since our last issue Parliament has met and commenced its labours. This is the eighth Parliament which has been summoned under the present Constitution Act. The Houses met for the discharge of preliminary business, such as the swearing-in of members and the election of a Speaker, on Tuesday, the 19th May, the Governor being represented on the occasion by two commissioners, viz., the Acting Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Molesworth. Captain MacMahon. was re-elected to the chair of the Assembly without a single dissentient voice, and received -the. congratulations of both -sides of the House on his resumption of an office which he had filled before with considerable skill and perfect dignity. Mr. Speaker was presented to His Excellency on the following day, after which Sir George Bo wen went down to the Parliament House and formally opened the session. As usual, everything was : done to render the ceremony as attractive and impressive as possible. Although we jnay not always be satisfi...

THE GREAT MELBOURNE TELESCOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 13 June 1874

THE GREAT MELBOURNE TELESCOPE. To the reproach that is sometimes made against colonial Governments, of an indifference to everything that has not a marketable value, and of a neglect of science, we are able to oppose a very convincing answer. We. have only to point to the Melbourne Observatory, and the discussion, so far as this colony is concerned, is at an end. _ , Of course, in the public-estimation the importance of the Mel bourne Observatory depends upon its possession of the great tele scope. This, doubtless, is in a large degree correct, although we had a very complete observatory, that did a good deal of valuable work, before the great telescope was erected. But still, when we consider the power of this great instrument, its perfect construc tion, its ad inirable situationf or the work of surveying the southern heavens — afield of observation which it has all to itself — the important results that it has obtained, and that are hoped from it in the future, we see that the Mel...

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

Racing and cricket may now be said. to be 'out,' and coursing and football ' in. ' Not that* racing is quite dead— for, to tell the truth, it never dies-^but ' the legitimate ' riiav be considered to be at' end, although even at this fag end of the period we have to chronicle the Adelaide Meeting^ which came off on the 25th, 26fch; and 27th of May. They have a new club and a new course at Adelaide, and the turf is going ahead there. The St. Leger was won by the 'Victorian Leger winner, Seaspray, and the Adelaide Cup. fell to Ace of Trumps (5 yrs, 7st. 131b. ), Sunbeam (3 yrs, 7st/) second, and Seaspray (3 yrs, 7st. 81b.) third, the son of the Ace of Clubs winning hard held.

The programme was a good one, and afforded s...

A THRIVING SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

A THRIVING SETTLEMENT. The Wellington Independent ,thua describes a settlement in New Zealand organised by Cut. Feilding, the agent of nn association formed in England by some eminent men for the relief of the hard-preRsed working-classes :—' The block, with the township of Feuding in-it3 centre, is about 20 miles by S, well watered by a river and several streams ; area, 106.000 acres,, and 12,000 open land, the remainder bush, mostly so light as to afford no obstacle to clearing and cultivation. Where it is thick it is composed of totara and matai, very valuable woods, easily obtained, which! are. in large demand, and for which two main .. lines of i ail way, which will unite near the block, will afford, ready means of conveyance. It is now being opened up by roads and tramways running all over it, along which the timber can be carried ; and houses are being buile in several other townships, which are marked off along these roads. A ttteam saw-mill will soon' be in operation, and a...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

?' ? ?.?-'?? . We had ' Don Giovanni' as the wind-up to our last season of opera, and imperfect as was the performance of it, the public, who are always well disposed towards Mozart in that form, flocked in great numbers to seethe representa tion. From the experience we have had here of travelling Italian opera companies- — and those who visit Melbourne certainly belong to a good class— it is evident that Mozart has no assured place in their esteem. Perhaps the conductor, a man clever enough in most respects, is indifferent to the com poser ; or the Don may be represented by an elderly gentleman of the ' heavy father' stamp, and may set about his amours with an appearance of as much sadness as was supposed in old time to belong to an Englishman taking his pleasures ; or, may be, Masetto is played by a capering clown without one- faint perception of the meaning of humour ; or, yet again, the part of Leporello is the recent acquirement of a clever man, and shows that it may be well pe...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus reports of mining that business in mining shares and property is very dull. Alines which are yielding gold are as numerous as ever, and are being worked as energetically, with faii; results so far as can be ascertained, but a great disinclination has arisen amongst the public to inveBt in progressive mines where it is only supposed that alluvial washdirt or quartz reefs exist, and the consequence is that shares in such companies are unsaleable in many instances, and at extremely low prices in others. A good number of months have now passed over without any important new discoveries of quartz reefs or alluvial gold diggings being announced, and there is no doubt that this is in no inconsiderable degree accountable for the languor which has arisen with respect to mining property. Another cause of the depression is over-speculation in the past, from which it has been impossible to recover without fresh encouragement in the shape of new reefs or diggi...
