CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

W\w/jnr ^^^ .^^Wfll!!BHBIIw(nl^H^^^^^^^^^^^^^BlPfQiBgp«iBBWjBn™BiBI|B||(!l^^^^^ M tf ^^kvIII By the last mail Lady Bowen left us on a visit to Europe, where she intends to make a stay of some months. Her ladyship, we regret to say, is compelled to go in search of health, but we trust that change of air and scene will effect a speedy and complete restoration. The wife of a colonial Governor has a very difficult part to play. She is not, like him, the representative of Her Majesty, and therefore cannot claim the deference which is accorded to his official position. At the samejime, she is necessarily the head, of colonial ' society,' and as such is compelled to discharge certain public functions under the eyes of critics who are not always prepared to place the best construction on actions or motives. To avoid making some enemies, especially in an ultra-democratic community, is almost an impossibility. If she is exclusive, then, in the eyes of one section of the people, she is proud a...

Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

M»; and:Mbs. Wii/liamson's extraordinary, success at the Theatre Rpyal has excited more than the usual commonplace conversation among theatrical people, and all sorts of expla nations have been ventured thereon. According to some ex ceedingly^ sagacious persons, the success is not the piece, for that is an ordinary domestic drama.;: nor is it Mr. and Mrs. Williamsbn'^fpr they — we are assured-1— are only of average ability; nor;Vis it the scenery,-; nor the get-up, nor the cleverjacting on the part of others in the piece. It is none of these things, we are entreated to believe ; it is simply the Dutch accent. Take away the Dutch accent, and there remains nothing but what is commonplace. Here, then, we have at once revealed to us all the hidden machinery by which success on the stage is reached. It is Dutch accent. Therefore, we have nothing to do but to trans mute commonplace characters into Dutch characters, and lo ! they become at once potent in attraction. It seems a pity the man...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 3 October 1874

To manage an opera company consisting of any number between 50 and 80 members — the mimbers varying according to the requirements of the cities in which they are played — is not an easy task in this part of the Avorld ; but it is one which is successfully performed by Mr. Lyster, the manager of the Melbourne Opera Company. The longest, seasons take place in Melbourne, where the people insist upon having, and give the best support to, the costliest and most complete organisation procurable. But seasons in Mel bourne must have an end, and a numerous and money devouring troupe has to be conveyed hither and thither from head-quarters to Sydney, from Sydney to Adelaide, from Ballarat to Sandhurst, in order that the members of it may do their utmost work during the term of their engagement, and bring- into the managerial mill that grist out of which they — the Italian artists — certainly take returns of the first quality. The last season of 12 sub scription nights, and two extra nights, '...

No occupation in life is so subject to the influence of superstition, as that of the man who devotes himself to card playing. It docs hot matter in the least what the game is at which he plays. The imperial whist, which requires the tact of the diplomatist, the daring of the administrator, the wisdom of the legislator, the genius of the poet, the industry of the mechanic, and the temper of the angel, is. as little free from the influence of card superstition as the pot-house cribbage or the gambler's poker. Men who believe in little else believe in their run of good and bad fortune, in the luck of a particular seat, in some pet trump, or in a particular way of cutting or shuffling the cards. A misdeal is commonly supposed, even by the steadiest players, 'to be ominous of bad fortune, and the dealer who turns up the lowest trump consoles himself with the well-known adage, ' There's luck under a deuce.' I ha...

Sketches THE INTERCOLONIAL ROWING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

THE INTERCOLONIAL ROWING MATCH. The event depicted in our illustration took place at Sydney, on September 26, and had been the cause of much speculation for weeks beforehand. We abridge the following notice of the race from the Sydney Mail ot October 3 : — Despite the difficulties which at first surrounded the attempt to bring about a meeting between the amateur oarsmen of New South Wales and Victoria, nego tiations were brought to a satisfactory issue, and the announce ment that the neighbouring colony had selected a crew worthy to represent her was received in Sydney with the liveliest pleasure. At the last moment, however, it seemed as if all our preparations had been made only to result in disappointment. Henderson, one of the best of' the Victorian quartette, was incapacitatedby illness from goinginto training'here, and Watson had to come over, a substitute. Fortunately, however, he was sufficiently recovered a couple of days before the great event to resume bis did position us...

SKETCHER. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1874. AUSTRALIAN PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1874. AUSTRALIAN PROGRESS. Some comparative tables have lately been published in The Argus, showing the statistics of the population, the trade and revenue, cultivation and stock of the various colonies of Australasia. The information they contained was eminently calculated to impress the mind with the rapidity and vigour of growth of these southern communities of the English race. About the same time, Sir George Bowen. in a speech made by him at Eaglehawk, dealt with figures bearing on the same subject, but prepared and cast in a somewhat different scale of comparison. From these sources we have placed before us some facts of great interest in themselves, and which we can hardly dwell upon without some important considerations being suggested. The most significant results yielded by these statistics are those of population. The estimated population of the Australian colonies at the end of 1873 numbered 1,825,092 persons, this total being made up as follows : —...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

^^-!wSskS» SPORT INC ?s^7$s^^ The members of the Melbourne Hunt Club had a very successful meeting on Saturday, the, 26th September, on the Flemington course, and although the weather was cold and showery, the attendance of ladies was' very good. .Eleven horses started for the Hurdle Race, the winner being Mr. Haines's Gameboy, Touchit second, and Gunter third. For the Hunt Club Cup,' gentlemen' riders, 11 also donned the silk, and a very pretty spectacle the race afforded, the horses fencing cleverly, arid being well and pluckily ridden.'' The winner was steered by a Mr. Thomas Watson, son of the master of the Melbourne Hounds, and the young gentleman — he is but a youth— rode with great patience and judgment over the big fences, winning easily at the last; Mr. Chirnside's Black Bess was second, and Mr. Pender's Sailor third: In the Open Steeplechase there ensued a magnificent finish between Sheet Anchor (list. 101b.) and Bagged Jack (lOst.

aTheatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

It is now tolerably certain that up to the time when pre parations for the next Christmas-pantomime are impending, Mr. and Mrs. Williamson will serve for all that is required in the way of attraction at the Theatre Royal. Mr. Wil liamson s latest success' has been as Kerry, m Mr. Bouci cault's little comedy- drama of that name, better known by the title of 'Night and Morning.' As an example of perfect acting without flaw, this part of Kerry is full of that sort of interest which attaches to all finished works of art. It is not simply clever ; it is a bit of nature cut out, and well preserved. It illustrates, moreover, how thoroughly a real actor can lose himself in the character he plays. There is nothing left of the actor, and there is every tiling required in the ? character. It is not, perhaps, difficult to represent age ; and if the characteristics of age only were . the condition of success, it might not require a great actor to play Kerry. But the part is complete at all point...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

Madame Arabella Godbard, after finishing her en gagement with Mr. Lyster, which was referred to last month, wherein she played at six concerts — three at the Opera-house and three at the Town-hall — save a benefit performance at that place in aid of the Hospital Sunday fund, which is generally collected about this time of year. At tho time of . the vernal equinox the weather is usually a little unsettled with us, as it is with the people of the old country, and, therefore, it is not to be wondered at that on this occasion the weather was such as to keep many hun dreds of people ' away who ; would have been glad to be present if it had been fine. 'Madame Goddard by this means made something over £70 for the hospital f und, but the rest.lt was not in accordance with the pains she took, although [every one thinks very highly of her for having done it ; for JwKten ,a ,* great artist ,suchv.;as.: she. ^voluntarily displays her talents in the cause of charity; her: Wghest reward is to be ...
