STATE OF SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

STATE OF SOCIETY. In looking over the scattered records of those early days the reader cannot fail to be otherwise than shocked at the depravity which prevailed in all places. No one expects to find convict settlements holy places in which the world weary might rest. Yet few will be prepared to tolerate the state of things such as^wero. known jin the first 26 years of the settlement in Van.'.Dioinen's Land. Captain Clicyne has referred to the ..'existence of a fearful degree . of depravity, unparalleled in any' age,' and' tin' English clergyman, after flying from the island in horror, spoke of it'as 'a den of. thieves, that, cove of robbers, that cage of unclean birds, that isthmus between earth and, hell. ' The oflicials in the early days were quite indifferent to public morals,' and. were themselves almost Wholly living in a .state of concubinage, for they made a pharasaical parade of observing the; sanctity of the Sabbath, and absolutely prohibited any trading upon that day.

AN UNPARALLELED CHAPTER. Many strange, some romantic, and not a few absolutely appalling stories aro told of the. men who were the first to grapple with rugged nature round about Macquarie Harbor and Port Arthur, and fleeing from the dreary prison house took their lives in their hands in attempting to escape into the woods, where these wretched beings wandered for days, vainly searching for sustenance, whicli they never found, and many died from exhaustion or by the hand of each other. The Rev. Mr. Connolly administered the consolations of religion to one of the unhappy beings of agangof eight which inJune, 1824, attempted to escape. All lost their lives, except one Pearce, who fell into the hands of the soldiers again, and was executed. His narrative or 'confession,' .told to the crowd which gathered round the scaffold, is one of the most appalling incidents to be read in the history of any young country.

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

; BUSHRANGINCI EPISODES. Tort Arthur was the nursery of more than' one 'hold bad bushranger. The adventurous habits of a . hunting .life, favored by the early necessities of the settlement, trained not a few to this terrible career. The lawless prisoners repealed in Tasmania the exploits once common in Great Britain, whon the merry green wood was the retreat of Robin Hood, Dick Turpin, Jack Sheppard and other outlaws. Of one sailor who deserted and took to the bush it is said that ho carried to his retreat a young woman whom he pro fessed to love, and remained three years in his seclusion. . Hut the romance of this event was extinguished at the close of their exile, when the man grow prosperous, abandoned his faithful companion and married another.

Barley is also good nearly everywhere; Around Ballarat, where the crops are later, tho wheat is splendid ; peas also look well, but on some farms the oats are short, from too muoh rain early in the season.

HOW TO STUDY THE PIANOFORTE. VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

HOW TO STUDY THE PIANOFORTE. VIII. Tho selection of musio for practice should be left to the toacher, who will certainly know much bettor than the student what is most suited to his needs. In the case of those who havo no opportunity of taking lessons the uso of a course of edited compositions of graduated difficulty is advisable.

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, musio 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 are accustomed to hear at the opera, in oratorios and other conoerts are inestimably valuable, not ouly as a grand and dignified addition to the' vooal work, but as' the second most important portion of the composition. In an oratorio such as the 'Messiah,' a work whioh was composed when orohestral music was in its infancy, and whon many of the instrumental resources oom monly heard in the present day were in a state of almost barbaric orudeness, the orchestra is used as little more than a frame in whioh to hang the magnificent vocal pictures with whioh the work abounds. The overture, for instance,' con sists, after a few bars of adagio in which certain wind instruments are sparingly used, of merely a short movement in fugal style for the stringed...
