THE PLAINT OF THE GRAND PIANO. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

THE PLAINT OF THE GRAND PIANO. I was a grand piano once— nay, hearken what I : say— Tho grandeur is no longer hero, it left mo yesterday. One leather souled executant nt a sitting could demolish The mellow pride of tuneful years, of tone, ami power, ami polish. . A dapper man, with weary brow, and smile of con scious pow'r, A Jove, prepared to improvise tone-thunder by the hour, Is Nasmyth Hammermann, whose touch would dis concert the dead, Whose foot would rush with pedal crush where . angels fear to tread. ? ' He kept his soul in patience while lesser people played, As one who bears with cruder views that taste-bound souls degrade ; ,? He pitied plaintive melody and winning modula tion, ? Biding his time— and then it camo— the afternoon'** sensation. Ho hovered over the keyboard, like a wild beast over its prey, And he tossed his head, and he rattled his wrists— and then he began to play ; To play ! And In that crowded room was none with heart tosee That what was to play to him an...

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

The prorogation of Parliament was postponed for several days beyond the date arranged origi- nally by the Government owing to the difficulties raised over two measures for the provisions of which the Government were seriously brought to task. One, was the Irrigation Amendment Bill, under which it was sought to relieve irriga- tion trusts of their liability to pay interest upon loans advanced by the State for 10 years. By many this proposal was viewed with marked sus- picion and disfavor. The Irrigation Act has been drawn upon the most liberal lines. Trusts are appointed and large sums of money advanced to them by the Government at 4 per cent.       to construct water works calculated to enhance the value of the land over   which their jurisdiction extends at least   five fold. Concessions have from time to time been made by which no injustice can be   done to individuals, while every district can be suppli...

PORT ARTHUR OF TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 January 1890

PORT ARTHUR OF TO-DAY.' There are two ways ot reaching Port Arthur from Hobart   and few visitors to that city, who go merely for pleasure,   omit to take a trip to a spot so beautiful, and so replete   with memories — sad memories if you will, but still, from their very weirdness, interesting. One way is by taking advantage of one of the pleasure trips under the auspices of the Steam Navigation Company, who conveniently arrange that the journey shall be made up and down in one day, leaving plenty of time 'to visit and examine all the most interesting spots, and gain a great deal of insight into and information regarding old convict discipline, with its gloomy and terrible associations. These, pleasure trips,   however, ' being of rare occurrence - not more than two or three taking place in an entire summer — the most common   method of making the journey is by the little steamship: Tarana which twice a week leaves Hob...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 February 1890

A moderate amount of business is reported in tho various markets ; the transactions, however, which have come under notice aro somewhat -limited in character. The country inquiry is good, and the importing drapory houses are doing a fair business for the end of the summer season. Owing to the recent heavy lcsses by fire, some of tho insuanco ' offices have ' raised their rates.
