QUARTZ-MINING AT GREAT DEPTHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

QUARTZ-MINING AT GREAT DEPTHS. On this subject The Arffusvrritea : — ' The question of whether or not quartz reefs will be found profitable at any considerable depth from the surface of the ground is still ;occupj ing public attention. Amongst the miners and residents on the gold-tields there is a settled belief that quartz lodes may be worked to almost any depth, and that what is being done now is a mere scratching, comparatively, of the surface. Indeed, the converse of the old theories, that quartz veins are mere shallow wedges of stone, is widely entertained, and confident assertions are made that the miner has only to sink deeper to get richer quartz. On the other hand, there are still to be found many who maintain that quartz lodes are chiefly gold-bearing at or near the surface, and that as great depths are reached the gold will be found to nearly, if notquite, disappear. Between these two classes of positive philo sophers there is anotherclass, not of a negative character exa...

Sketches with Pen ARTISTIC MEMOS. BETWEEN THE BRIDGES ON THE UPPER YARRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

ARTISTIC) MEMOS. BETWEEN THE BRIDGES ON THE UPPER YARRA. When from those points of eruptions, now visible as gentle mounds on each side of the Sandhurst Railway as far as Gisborne, the molten basalt rushed seawards until its southern extremity met a wall of Silurian rock, the present pleasant windings of the Yarra between the bridges were mapped out by the shrinkage of the cooling bluestone, the site of Melbourne fixed by a barrier placed against the inroads of the tide. Then the young stream commenced its centuries of work, enlarging its bed, spreading' out rich flats of soil for nature to beautify, heightening its banks for the planting of a luxury of vegetation, to be unseen by appreciating eyes for centuries— tumbling over the barriers and scooping out a basin, *as if to tempt adventurers who might ariive at the lovely spot to moor their ship and found a city. It speaks well for the energy of those adventurers who' did find the spot and moor their ships, that, in 11 years after ...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The. Avfjns inits lostmonthly summary reported thattho mining industry has continued during the last month in thequiet state into which it; has lapsed for some time past, no new discoveries of quartz-reefs or fresb alluvial diggings having been recorded to restore the interest of the public, and especially of investors of capital in mining property. Work is, however, steadily pur sued in the large number ofmineR opened out in the colony, and, judging from the most authentic statements published, with ordinary profitable-results in gold-yielding mines. Prospecting in quartz claims is also carried on to a large extent, and there is no doubt, from the dimensions which quartz-mining has already assumed, together with its profitable nature— by far the largest part of the gold being now obtained from quartz reefs— that it only lequires the discoveries of a few new quartz reefs, or im provements in the qualities of those already yielding gold, to create such a rea...

HUNTING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

HUNTING IN 'VICTORIA. From the earliest times in colonial history the chase has been pursued with keenness and ardour by Victorian sportsmen. Before any regular packs of hounds were kept, a favourite amusement amongst the squatters was to hunt the kangaroos and wild dogs, or dingoes as they are called, with hounds bred specially for the purpose— a cross, probably, between the grey hound and the old Scotch or Irish deerhound — powerful animals, that could run down a kangaroo or wild dog, and make short work of either when caught, unless it happened to be an old man kangaroo, that would prop himself against a tree, show fight, and often inflict serious wounds on the hounds with his sharp claws, frequently ripping them up so that death ensued. In the course of time a few couples of foxhounds were introduced, and from them the nucleus of a pack was formed. It is impossible to say for certain who was the first master of hounds in Victoria, probably Mr. George Watson ; but as far back as ...

AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1874. WHAT WE OWE TO THE WOOL CLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1874. WHAT WE OWE TO THE WOOL CLIP. A TRUER word was never spoken by Mr. Laitgton than that he uttered in the course of the debate on the financial statement of Mr. Service, when he assigned wool as the great material agent of the prosperity this colony has been enjoying for the last few years. The subject Mr. Langton had under consideration was not so much the general prosperity of the country as the prosperity of the revenue. But a very little reflection shows that in this respect one may very well be taken as the measure of- the other. With this proviso, we may quote Mr. Langton's remarks as bearing upon our subject. He asked — ' What has been the most potent influence daring the last two or three years in increasing our revenue ? The question may be answered in one word — ' Wool. ' We have had an unprecedented succession of good seasons, and at the same time we have had a higher price for wool ruling in Europe than has been known for very many years. What is...

THE SUMNER CAVE, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

THE} SI7MNER GATE, NEW ZEALAND. At a meeting of the Wellington Philosophical Society, Dr. Hector read. ah interesting paper on .the Suroner Cave, ' Canter bury, by MrvA;-M.'Kay, of the Geological Department, who had made excavations there for Dr. Haast in 1872. Theiveto Zealand Times gives the following summary of the paper : — 'The explo* ration occupied seven. weeks, and on its completion the collections and notes which were'made.were given, to Dr. Haast, and the paper now read was chiefly occupied with the 'author's own views on the question — whether tta'e..moa hunters,- were,, possessed .of tools other than those of the rudest description ;' and whether there were any facts' constituting a difference between them and the Maoris of later times. The cave, which hos been excavated by the sea in a soft stratum between two hnrd layers of lava rock, is now a long way, from the sea shore, ?and although careful measurements have shown that the sandy 'floor of the cave is only a few fee...

THE HON. J. H. BARROW, OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

THE HON. J. H. BARROW, OF..SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The Hon. J. H. Baiwow, a prominent-politician in South Australia, member of the Legislative Assembly, and editor and proprietor of the South Australian Advertiser, died on August 22. The deceased gentleman was much respected and widely regretted, and his funeral was attended by a large assemblage of the public men of South Australia. The Adelaide correspondent of Tlie Argus writes thus respecting the circumstances of his death and public career :— ' His decease is assignable. to exhaustion conse quent upon excessive mental- labour. : '.Serous effusion on the brain' is the medical euphemism for a complete prostration of physical powers— never very great—and of intellectual powers of a peculiarly brilliant order. .The career of the -non. gentleman in the colony has been a chequered and a striking one. - On his first arrival he was a Congregational minister, and in- that capacity he soon succeeded in collecting around him at Ken sington a str...

A MAORI CHIEF'S OPINION OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

A MAORI CHIEF'S OPINION OF MELBOURNE. Some time ago Melbourne was visited by Major Ropata, who hat* been the recipient of distinctions for his bravery as one of our allies in the last New Zealand war, and who now came as a visitor to Victoria in company with Mr. M'Lean. the Native Minister. After his return Major Ropata addressed to the Waha Maori, a journal published in both the English and Maori languages, a letter, of which the following is the portion giving his views of what he saw in Melbourne : — 1 Wellington, August 4, 1874. Sir, — As I understand that the readers of the Waka Maori have been interested in the perusal of the letters which I addressed to you from Sydney respecting what I saw in that place, I now, with your permission, proceed to give them an account of 'my experiences in Melbourne. When Mr. M'Lean had completed bis business in Sydney, he informed us that we were about to proceed south, where we should have an opportunity of viewing the towns ana district of Vi...

AN ARTIST'S TRIP IN RIVERINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

AN ARTIST'S TRIP IN RIVERINA. The views we give in another page illustrate some of the aspects of life presented to our artist during a recent trip in the southern part of Riverina. His representations will be recog nised at a glance by all who have observed human life in the phases in which it is to be seen infthat highly-prosperous district. Who, for instance, that has lived or travelled there, or, indeed, in any readily accessible squatting district, does not at a glance remember a very familiar acquaintance, the 'sundowner?' The 'sundowner' is met with everywhere where stations or out-stations lie within easily walked distances, and he has a more accurate knowledge of their distances and. of the chances of getting a meal at them than the oldest inhabitant. He is a distinguished example of the numerous class of men of whom Sir John O'Shanassy once said, ' They go about looking for work and praying God they may not find it.' It is the business of the 'sundowner' to look for work, ...
