WRECK OF A MAIL STEAMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

WRECK OP A MAIL STEAMER. Intelligence was received in Melbourne on June 23 that the Torres Struits mail steamer Flintshire had been wrecked at Cape Cleveland, on her way to Brisbane, but that ullj hands were saved. The Flintshire left Batavia on the 5th June, with a ? larue caruo. partly consigned to Melbourne,: and an increased number of pasaengers, among whom were Madame Arabella Goddard, and .Blondin, the famous rope-walker, who is coming to Australia on a professional visit, after performing in India and the Straits settlements. The vessel, after leaving Cardwell, proceeded to Cleveland Bay, where she landed '100 coolie labourers, and after* wards called at Towns ville. It was subsequent to leaving that port, and at half-past 5 o'clock on June 21, that the steamer struck on a reef outside Cape Cleveland, which is distant about 15 miles from TownHville and some 10 miles to the eastward of Magnetic Island. The passengers at once took to the boats, and made forTownsville, which the...

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

. It would rather surprise a lady to compliment her on the cut of her bread-basket, or to tell her that it hardly looked full enough to suit her figure ; but we do it, nevertheless, when we speak to her of her pannier. We get the word from the Latin panis, and it3 original meaning was a bread-basket. Before bakers' carts came into use, bread used to be carried round on horses' and asses' backs in wicker baskets, and hence any basket slung across an ass's back was called a pannier ; but in our own day ladies have taken the burden on thorn selvos, and turned the pannier into one of the mysteries of their toilets. The feminine bread-basket, however, appears to be on the decline, and a curious mistletoe-like excrescence, called, I am- told on good autho rity, a puff, is taking its place. This is enlarging day by day, visibly swelling, like the lady that Mr. Weller noticed at the tea-meeting, before my eyes, till, instead of a bread basket, it promises soon to assume the dimensions of- -...

AUSTRALIASIAN SKETCHERS SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1874. A YEAR'S PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

SATURDAY, JULY 11. 1874. A YEAR'S PROGRESS. The statistics which Mr. Archer has been accustomed to issue give admirable summaries of the growth of the people of Victoria in numbers and activity, and enable us to compare the population one year with another, so far as its relations can be expressed in figures, and so to estimate the rate and direction of our progress as a community. Wo shall no longer get these returns signed by the name of Mr. Archer, he having been translated to another sphere ; but no doubt arrangements have been made to secure that the Victorian statistics will be issued with the same regularity and in the same excellent state of completeness by which they have always been characterised. We here purpose to take a view of the principal facts to be gleaned from the population statistics of Victoria for 1873, so far as they have yet been published. The population of the colony at the close of 1873 num bered 790,492, having increased 19,765 during the year. The small...

Sketches with Pen OUR VICTORIAN NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

OUR VICTORIAN NAVY. The: supplement presented this month of ' Our Navy' gives a representation of four vessels, the Cerberus, the Nelson, the Victoria; and the Pharos, which at present constitute our war fleet, so to speak. That this colony should aspire to possess such an institution may be deemed Quixotic by some, .and ridiculous by others ; but as there is no attempt at aping the armaments of the great naval powers, and as .the vessels comprising our fleet are engaged at present in quite other than destructive purposes, we do not altogether coincide with this opinion. Just as we have a volunteer force as tbe commencement of our army of the future (should that unfortunately ever be required), and as the. military training received by the members fits them for campaigning, should: the necessity arise, so we have, on the other band, the germ of a naval force in the vessels forming the subject of our engraving, nnd in the men who are being trained on board in marine artillery practic...

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

What racing there is now is across country. A very pleasant steeplechase meeting came off at that pretty town ship and watering-place, Warrnambool, on the 11th of June, and went off very well indeed. The company numbered over 4,000, which shows that the people of this colony take a lively interest in the sport. One or two very good horses came out, notably Duffer, the winner of the chief event ; the Western district being that in which many first-class jumpers are bred. The Winter Steeplechase Meeting of the Geelong Racing Club was held on Friday, the 26th ult. The Handicap was won by Sheet Anchor, First Toss second, beaten by a head ; and the Hurdle Race by Rory O'More. The weights for the three big spring handicaps have been published, viz., the Hawkesbury Grand Handicap, the Sydney Metropolitan, and the Melbourne Cup. Dagworth gets top weight in all. At Hawkesbury he gets lOsfc. lib. , at Melbourne lOst., and at Sydney lib. less. . In the Mel bourne handicap, after Dagworth comes...

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

The Girards, at the Theatre Royal, havo hit the popular liking, for the simple reason that they do exceedingly well what they essay to do. It may not be a noble end of human ambition to acquire fame by bending the body into shapes which suggest articular dislocation, but if the bending be of the best kind the public will applaud it. The public may not have a high standard of excellence for theatrical and other amusements, so far as excellence relates to kind, but when the generic qualities are conceded the degree is demanded to be high. In this way the Girards have established themselves as favourites, for the simple reason that they are entitled to favour because they do quite well what they contract to do. Perhaps their performances excite that sort of wonder which Dr. Johnson expressed when he wished that, besides being wonderful, something were also impossible. Their performances havo been made to constitute part of two pieces — namely, the burlesque of ' The White Fawn' and the...

OUR- SUPPLEMENT : OUR VICTORIAN NAVY. We dovote an article to the detailed description of the four vessels composing our Victorian Navy which are de lineated in our supplement. It is only necessary here to say that the ironclad monitor in the foreground of the plate is the Cerberus, the large man-of-war lying at anchor is the Nelson, the small three-masted vessel to the stern of the Nelson is the Victoria, and the Pharos is visible at tho back, across the bows of the Cerberus. . OUTSIDE THE PARLIAMENT HOUSES ! WAITING FOR A DIVISION. A characteristic scene is presented to a Btudent of human life in the crowd that hangs about the entrance to tho Legislative Assembly on the occasion of a debate on some important subject. The galleries, in all probability, are full, ana there is no room for any more ' strangers,' even if the needful order has been obtained from some hon. member. But somo will not be satisfied with this. They send note after note to urge their member to make some effort...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 11 July 1874

Mr. Francis took an early opportunity after the com mencement of the session of redeeming his promise to introduce a bill to reform the Constitution after the Nor wegian fashion, and on the 17th ultimo.it was read a second time by a majority :6f 2Q (48 to' 28), v only'; one;; member of the Hojase, in addition fo the Speaker, .having ; abstained from voting. The gentleman who enjoyed this enviable, or, as some may think, unenviable, distinction was Mr. Wrixon j the hon. and learned member for Belfast. The debate which preceded the division extended over eight nights, and was of the most dreary description imaginable. As a country contemporary has truly said, ?V-No public question that has ever come before the Par liament of Victoria has been discussed with less earnestness. Members on both sides of the House appeared to have been overloaded with the idea that they were dealing with a sham ; that they were dealing with a measure which, if carried, would not accomplish what was desirab...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 August 1874

These are some dishes the best part of which is the sauce, and the Girards, at the Theatre Royal, seem to have been a sauce of this kind. There was riot much either in the 'White Fawn' or ' Rosedale,' regarded from a dramatic standpoint, but, as they both included the Girards, they went down not unpleasantly. The 'Yellow Passport,' which followed, was in like manner not a remarkably clever drama ; but then the Girards came after it, and so it went down for the sake of the second course. The revival of the ' Colleon Bawn' for. three nights was acceptable on its own merits, because the ' Colleen Bawn,' although' not a wonderful production of a literary kind, is so good as an acting drama that it may always be witnessed with pleasure. ' Moreover, as the occasion which prompted its presentation was the benefit, and — so they say — the retirement from the stage of Mr. James Milne, there was ? an attendant Sclat which helped its acceptance. The Girards, to be sure, were continued in the b...
