OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM.—THE OLD AND THE NEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 August 1874

OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM.^THE OLD AND THE NEW. ? ? '/ . The present Education Act was not paseed till public opinion became thoroughly ripe for a change. For years complaints, gradually increasing in force and number, were heard of the waste and inefficiency of the common school system. Large sums of money were annually granted by Parliament to an irresponsible . board for distribution among schools that were managed by irresponsible committees, and the business of public instruction was carried on at the maximum of expense and the minimum of the work for which the money was voted. A few of our churches had arrogated to themselves the right of saying that education was their exclusive care, and that it would be far better for the young of the colony to grow up in a state of heathen ignorance than not to have ground into them with their reading and writing certain dogmas, catechistical teachings, and religious facts or fancies, which the clergy of these churches considered essential to t...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1874. OUR ENGLISH CRITICS AND ADVISERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 August 1874

-tr'mK. Wl^j? ? *r* — «^~- ? ly-^ j^-^-^/Vfr^y* 7? SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1874. OUR ENGLISH CRITICS AND ADVISERS. We have lately received advice from different authorities in England on the subject of the form of constitution adopted ;in the Australian colonies. In all of these colonies in which jesponsible government exists, as also in Canada, the United States, and the legislatures of the single states making up that great republic, it has been held that, to give proper deliberation to the work of legislation and to secure liberty to the people, it is necessary to divide the Legislature into two Houses. It has been considered that, as irresponsible unchecked „ power readily degenerates into tyranny, the only safeguard is to divide the supreme power and vest it in two bodies, each of which is thus liable to have its will opposed by an authority as strong as itself. In this view our double-house Parliaments have been constituted, and in most cases' the 'arrangement has been found to wo...

' The report and diary of Mr. Gosse's explorations westward of the telegraph line have been laid before' Parliament, and the map of the country passed over is in the Survey-office. Though the' explorer failed in. reaching the settled districts of Western Australia, the expedition was by no means without useful result. The positions of natural features of the country named by Mr. Giles were fixed, fresh discoveries were made, and detailed information is supplied of over 60,000 square miles of territory of which previously nothing was. known. Though the greater part of the country explored is worthless, there is no inconsi derable portion of a valuable i character. \ After reaching the Western Australian boundary the country was wor...

Sketches with Pen THE SHIP OAKWORTH RUNNING DOWN A FISHING SMACK ON THE IRISH COAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 August 1874

I , ?- - t ' N, _ ^ -- ? IP THE SHIP OAKWORTH RUNNING DOWN A FISHING SMACK ON THE IRISH COAST. A very strong feeling has been excited in the public mind by the publication/ of the particulars of the running-down of a fishing smack, with eight men, by the ship Oakworth, bound from Glasgow to Melbourne. The accident occurred on the 21st of March, off the Old Head of Kinsale, and it appears that the smack lost was the Olive, of the Isle of Man, which was seen oh the night of the collision off Old Kinsale Head, and was never seen again. What bo's caused so strong a sentiment in connexion with this case is not the deplorable character of the loss itself, grievous though that is, and is not even tbo fact of its being occasioned hy any gross negligence on the part of the officers of the Oakworth, although it seems that had the ship been properly handled tlie catastrophe would not have occurred. But the case reveals on the part of the captain, and in a lower degree on the part of the office...

EXTRAORDINARY SHOOTING CASE AT BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 8 August 1874

EXTRAORDINARY SHOOTING CASE AT BALL AN. A very extraordinary case of fatal shooting took place on July 18, at Ballan, and excited much interest throughout the colony from, the mysterious character of Borne of its circum stances. Mr. Densley, of the Horse and Jockey Hotel, East Ballan, and Mr. Thompson, farmer, of Pentland-hillp, went oh that day to put some horseB in tho paddock of Mr. Clarke. The caretaker (Pierrepoint), who is Dennley's father-in-law, being absent from his hut, Densley was forced to enter it by way of the chimney, and made up a fire to boil the billy to make some tea until Ins father-in-law should come home. After being in the hut some time he said to Thompson, ' Let us see what the old man .keeps .in.Jiere,' menning^ajroom i off ...thejjne. they were in, with nn old sack nailed up for a door or screen.

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

The last now fashion among ladies looks as if human nature were coming in. ? Keen observers of the sex have noticed for some time past an inclination on the part of the weaker vessels to affect the society of little children. Young and fashionably- dressed ladies appear publicly and int the most ostentatious manner shepherdessing little toddlers of from two to four. Instead of lap-dogs or human poodles, the block is now done in company with mites of children, and the sight of two youngladies, eachbending down to hold the hand of a little pet, about 2ft. Gin. in height, is becoming familiar to the frequenters of our fashionable parades. Very pro bably the fashion has had its origin, like many others, in necessity. It is not unlikely that the first young lady who made her appearance in public in the guardian angel line did so in consequence of the sudden and unexpected levanting of the nursemaid. Every one knows the story of disaster that led to roast pork becoming a favourite article...

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

That a whole month should have passed in Melbourne with only one concert of magnitude as the chief musical event is; an occurrence which is thus far unique in the history of The Australasian Shetcher. and this is in itself evidence of the large patronage which, under ordinary cir cumstances, is bestowed hero upon music as a means of public recreation. There have been, it is true, weekly and even nightly entertainments given, in which music has formed the chief attraction, but these 'are not of a kind of which we usually take notice, and their influence upon, popular taste is the reverse of beneficial. 'Nevertheless, it is certain that large audiences assemble with- great regu larity every week, and, upon payment 'of fees ranging from 3d. up to Is., listen with every appearance of the most hearty enjoyment to entertainments which, from the musical point of view, are of a very poor character. ' Doubtless the large infusion of the comic element at these performances is the chief attrac...
