SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

The racing season proper commenced at Hawkesbury on the 15th ult., and the meeting was well attended by visitors from this side. The Hawkesbury Guineas were won by Sir Hercules RobinseR^s colt Kingsborough, and His Excellency also rah third with Neredah, Llama being second. The Grand Handicap was won very easily by the Sylvia colt Goldsbrough, Sterling second, and 'Viva third. From the style in which he won, it will ba no surprise if the Grand Metropolitan and the Melbourne Cup should also fall to this fine son of Fireworks, who belongs to Mr. Petty, the late owner of the Maribyrnong estate, but is trained by Mr. Tait. The acceptances for the Melbourne Cup number 51, all the best horses having been left in.

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

Tub Australian Jullien whom we spoke about in last month's Sketciier has not yet made his appearance, but we are not entirely without good orchestral music notwith standing. Still the regret remains the same that the best performances of tho best works should be listened to by the least in number, while the mass is content with all that is poor, if not mediocre, in art. It is like savagery subsist ing on tasteless roots while luscious fruits hang tempting overhead. Only the savagery in this instance is well dressed and dapper, well nourished »pd amazingly self- con tented, and bo utterly unconscious of its condition, so unsuspicious of its being without culture, that its general enlightenment can only be effected through time and the self-sacrificing exertions of those who love art more, than they care for profit. Somebody has said that ' Rome was not built in a day' (he was a sententious person, whoever he was — not entirely unlike Mr. F.'s aunt — for we don't believe the converse ...

Sketches with Pen THE ABORIGINAL MISSION STATION, RAMAHYUK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

THE ABORIGINAL MISSION STATION, RAMAHYUK. The Aboriginal Mission Station, Bamahyuk, in Gipps Land, is situated on a beautiful eminence on the left bank of the Biver Avon— at this place a broad and noble stream, suited for the navigation of large vessels—overlooking a large morass of green reeds, with the. silvery sheet of Lake Wellington in the distance. This station has, in the abort time of about 10 years, assumed the proportions of a comfortable little hamlet, and is laid out in such a way as to enclose three sides of a large square. The fourth side, being the approach of the road from Stratford, is open for extension by the erection of new cottages. On enter ing: the square, plot, or green, the visitor has a row of natives' cottages on either side, all facing the square, and each having a garden of about half an acre extending back in the opposite direction. The first building of note is the church, standing near the centre of the square, which is neatly constructed of weather b...

THE PRIZE DESIGN FOR THE NEW HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

THE PRIZE DESIGN FOR THE NEW HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, ADELAIDE. The Government and Parliament of South Australia some time ago having determined to build a structure to accommodate the chambers of Legislature, and that would be adequate to the architectural character of the city, called for designs for that purpose, the competition, we believe, being open to architects of all the colonies. The designs were decided upon some weeks ago, when the first prize was awarded to that prepared by Mr. Lloyd Tayler, architect, of Melbourne, and Mr. E. W. Wright, architect, of Adelaide, who jointly laboured in the preparation of the design. It is this which we show in our engraving, from which it may be seen that when the building is erected a hand some and stately edifice will have been added to the public buildings of Adelaide. - The site selected for the new buildings is the corner of the North-terrace and the City Bridge road, adjoining that occupied by the present Parliament buildings. The fac...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

The Williamsons are in everybody's mouth. They are the one success which has followed the engagements lately effected by ihe management of the Theatre Royal in America. If all the actors that are still to come here from that country are of the same degree of merit, we may heartily pray that American actors will continue to come. And the Williamsons came unheralded by any laudatory announcements: Not one person in a hundred had ever heard of the Williamsons, and those who had heard of them did not feel hopeful. But in ten minutes after they had been on the stage, when they made their first appear ance on the 1st of August, it was obvious to anyone not absolutely incapable of judging or blindly prejudiced against manifest facts that they had merit boyond the common. No doubt it is a great mutual advantage in their being able to play together, but it is not the less certain that even severally their, excellence would not be less assured. No actor who. ever played on the Melbourne stage...

MR. ROSS'S EXPLORING EXPEDITION TOWARDS WEST AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

MR. ROSS'S EXPLORING EXPEDITION TOWARDS WEST AUSTRALIA. The South Australian Register, of August 10, has the following remarks:— -l The vague report which reached Adelaide a few days ago as to the unlooked-for appearance of Mr. John Ross and party in the settled districts of South Australia is fully confirmed. Ihe following telegram from the leader. of this latent expedition to the westward was received from Beltana by the Hon. Thomas Elder on Saturday, August 8 :—' Hon. Thos. Elder,— I arrived here last night,, having been obliged to return for want of water on the country through which I wished to penetrate, and on which no ram has, been, for a, long time. . At several times my horses were for four days without water, and once for five days.' The great extent of mulga scrub country and immense quantity of dead underwood prevented my using the camels for tryintr the country for water. My farthest was in lat. 30° 25' and Ion. 131° 56'. Very few natives seen, .and on every occasion m...

THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

THE ABORIGINES. According to the tenth report of the Aborigines Protection Board, which was recently presented to Parliament, the condition of the aborigines was never so prosperous as at the present time. ' Useful employments have been found for the adults of both sexes ; the children are educated and trained by competent teachers, and the material interests of both the aged and the young are carefully guarded.' The most interesting portion of the report is that relating to the hop-grounds at Coranderrk. It is as follows : — ' For many years the board has conducted experi ments at the several stations, with the object of producing crops that would necessitate neither heavy nor sustained labours — labours that the aborigines as a rule are not fitted to undertake — and which would yield a return sufficient at least to pay for the ? Bupport of the natives. At Coranderrk a great many different crops have been grown ; at one time it was expected that tobacco would yield largely ; grain ...

New Book ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SECRETARY FOB AGRICULTURE.* [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SECRETARY FOR AGRICULTURE.* It is not usual to review reports of Government depart ments under this heading! of /'fNew Books,' but this volume comes in! such a presentable shape as to fairly entitle it to notice as a work of general literature. It is a. well printed, neatly bound volume of 363 pages, audits contents are of a very varied nature, sufficiently so to render them of interest to persons quite destitute of technical knowledge of, or more than general interest in, the subjects of whioh they treat. It is only in this aspect that we can glance at tho book in this place. The book contains a report addressed to the Minister of Lands and Agriculture by tho secretary, Mr. A. R. Wallis; a report by the chemist of the department, Mr. W. E. Ivey ; and another roport, by the same gentleman, on Victorian state forests. After this formal, and so to speak departmental, * Second Annual Roport of tho Secretary for Agriculture John Ferres, Government Printer. 1871. * '...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

I heard the father of a family reproached for the bad example he set his children in never going to church on Sundays. 'My principal objection,' said he, ' is on the ground of physical incapacity. I cannot sit for an hour and a half or two hours in a constrained position, and without permission to open niy lips, except to say 'Amen.' Besides, no sane man, let him be ever so holy, prays by himself for two hours at a stretch. I don't believe archbishops do it. Why, then, should people bo asked to go through, an amount of devotional exercise in public that they never dream of taking in private? It is the prayer, in the chamber with the closed door that does good ; but your church-going Christian has so much on Sundays that it takes away his appetite for it on week daya. My idea of ? public worship is that it should be a publio acknowledgement of - the Suprome— -an act of homage to the great Lord of All. In earthly matters, when loyal subjects wish to pay their sovereign respect they ap...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

Political affairs have lately been in a somewhat disturbed state. The Ministry, after the loss of its chief, was reconstructed under the leadership of Mr. Kerferd, and taking into consideration all the circumstances of the case' that gentleman and his colleagues had a right to expect a little forbearance.. ; The Opposition, however, was too much disappointed at the loss of its supposed opportunity to show mercy, and the Government has had to defend its position ..with all. the enorgy and skill it could command. 'Imme- diately after the Premier had announced his arrangements, ; Mr.' Langton, the late Treasurer, explained the reasons which induced him to resign office. It appeared that in the event of Mr. Francis's retirement, or temporary withdrawal on leave of absence, Mr. Langton considered himself entitled to the leadership in virtue of his office. But Mr. Casey, the Minister/ of Lands, refused to serve under his banner, which fact '''.the i would-be chief -attributed to his refus...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1874. THE SOCIAL EFFECTS OF UNIVERSAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

SAl'URDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1874. THE SOCIAL EFFECTS OF UNIVERSAL EDUCATION. We are congratulating ourselves in 'Victoria that the problem of popular education is with us virtually solved. 1 We have made instruction free to all. The law undertakes to enforce the duty of imparting it upon those who might otherwise be disposed to neglect it, and, so far as possible, provision has been taken that the miserable squabbles of religious sects shall no longer obstruct the education of the people. Everything that the Legislature can do has, been done. And we have also the satisfaction of seeing that these legislative efforts are being well seconded by the co operation of the great bulk of the population. Therefore, we have every reason to look onto a time not remote, when almost every adult in this colony, of Victorian birth, shall have received a fair education, competent to fit him or her for the general business of life. This, as compared with the state of things in most, indeed in all, Engli...

Fine ARTS THE FINE ARTS IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

THE FINE ARTS IN VICTORIA. Four years ago the artists of this colony formed them- selves into an association entitled 'The Victorian Academy   of Arts." Its organisation was based on that of the Royal Academy of England ; the objects aimed at being twofold — the holding of an annual exhibition in Melbourne, and the foundation of a school in which the study of the higher branches of the arts of painting and sculpture might be systematically and advantageously pursued. The infant association obtained a grant of land on the Eastern-hill, upon which to erect a gallery of its own, and has built a commodious and well-lighted room, at a cost of £700, in which its fourth annual exhibition is now being held. Fifty-two artists and amateurs have enrolled themselves as members of the academy, which also includes 16 subscribing and 33 life members. It is governed by a council of 14 artists, with His Excellency the Governor as its patron and Mr. Chester Earles as its president. The e...

THE EUCALYPTUS AS A FEVER-DESTROYING TREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 5 September 1874

THE EUCALYPTUS AS A FEVER-DESTROYING TREE. In view of the interest which is attached in Europe, Mauritius, and other places to the alleged fever-destroying properties of the Australian gum tree, Mr. Bosisto, who from his researches into the oils of those trees is one of our most competent au- thorities on the question, read a paper on the subject at the last meeting of the Royal Society. He remarked that in many places on the Continent and elsewhere experiments had been made to acclimatise the eucalypti, more especially the bluegum species. The rapidity of its growth, its early maturity to a forest tree, together with the power to absorb considerable moisture, and to permeate the air with its peculiar odour, led to the belief that the tree, attractive in itself, exerted a beneficial influence upon malarious districts. In the consideration of the question whether the eucalypti tended to destroy miasmatic poison or to lessen malaria, it was necessary to take into account the whole of ...
