A SKETCH NEAR MACEDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

A SKETCH NEAR MACEDON. It is scarcely necessary to bespeak the attention of our readers to the masterly sketch of a woodland scene near Mount Mace don, from the pencil of M. Louis Buvelbt, which forms the subject of a full-page engraving in the present number. It shows that in mere black and white he is as effective as in the employment of colour for the purposes of landscape- illustration. The scene is one in which Nature has arranged and combined all the constituents of a charming picture, leaving to the artist only the selection of his point of view, and of the time at which the scene will look its loveliest. How judiciously the choice has been made it is surely superfluous to point out. It is towards the hour of sunset, and the golden light still falls in patches on the meadow, by the margin of the wood, and tinges with a tawny lustre the rugged trunks of the trees facing the west, while it touches and transforms the sombre foliage overhead. A couple of carters have released the...

SHEARING IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

SHEARING IN AUSTRALIA. Sheaiiino time is the great harvest of the pastoral interest and all the industries depending upon it. In our last issue we bad an article, showing how much in Victoria, and indeed in Aus tralia, we owe to tbe prosperity of the wool-producing industry. This is never better shown than at shearing time. Before it commences, the shearers, who busy themselves in other 'ways during the rest of the year, Bharpen their shears, and packing these and their whetstone in the middle of their swag, take tho rotid to (heir shearing district. This may, perhaps^ be hundreds of miles inland. Probably, in that case, the district is an early one, and after finishing there they may be able to get another job at some later station on the way home. Many of them are selectors— let us hope not dummies in the interest of a neighbour ing squatter, but bond-fide cultivators of their selections. They have sown their grain crops long ago, have dug their potatoes, and planted those for nex...

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

. Last month I alluded to the singular superstitions to which card-players are a prey. I have since had renewed occasion to remark that all who appeal to the blind goddess are subject more or less to the same form of mental disease. Some gentlemen who are in the habit of meeting together resolved,' according to immemorial custom, to get up a sweep on the approaching Melbourne Cup. There were to be 40 members, at so much each — the first horse to get so much, the second a trifle, and the third to save his stake — the regular old legitimate sweep, in fact. Out of the first 12 who entered their names, 11 took up odd numbers — com- binations of three and seven— while the twelfth* as if to show his disbelief in such silly notions (' trampling .on the pride of Oreaar, with a pride greater than Oceaar's'), osten tatiously put down his name for 40. .That man I looked upon as the most superstitious of the lot. He belioved in his heart, as we all do, in the luck of odd ntimbers, but hoped to ...

THE SUMNER CAVE, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

THE SUMNER CAVE, NEW ZEALAND. Tn our last issue we gave a summaryof a paper read before the Wellington Philosophical Society by Dr. Hector, loir.; Mr. M'Kay, on the relics found in the interesting Sumner Cave^ More recently, Dr. Haasr, under whose direction and superintendence the explorations in the cave have been conducted;;' has read an exhaustive 'paper on the subject. We extract the part giving his conclusions as to the geological era of the moa hunters, whose relics are found in the cave, and the age of the disappearance of the moa. In reference to this latter subject, we may state that a report has lately been published in New Zealand of the capture of two live moa8, but up to this date it ' wants confirmation.' Dr. Haast says : — ' I thinkifc will be useful if I offer in conclusion a short resum6 of the work performed,' and contemplated ? as a whole, The excavations have shown that a nearly level floor of marine sands existed, resting. upon the rocky bottom of the cave, thes...

A RIVERINA SQUATTING HOMESTEAD. A aisitor to Australia who comes with very little previoxis enlightenment as to the wealth and social advantages of the ' squatting' class, and who has allowed his ideas of the class to be shaped by its decidedly ill-favoured appellation, must be very much surprised on coming across some of the mansions which the squatters have in various parts of the colonies built as residences. Many of these are very fine examples of a country house. Built on well-selected sites, chosen so as to. combine the elements of the useful with those of the picturesque, surrounded with well-kept gardens a...

ANNEXATION OF FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

ANNEXATION OF FIJI. The Californian mail steamer Mikado, which reached Sydney on October 15, brought intelligence that Sir Hercules Robinson has annexed Fiji to the British Crown, and that the British flafc was hoiated on the 8th October. The advices received state that Tiii Cakau gave his assent to the annexation, which the King arranged without the interference of the whites; only an inter preter accompanying him on board H. M.S. Dido. Sir H. Robin - Bon left on the 29th September for Somo-Loma, in U.M.S. Pearl, to obtain Maafu's signature to the annexation documents. Cakobau followed in the Dido. They would return in about a week, and Sir Hercules Robinson would return to Sydney. Mr. Consul Layard would probably he appointed Acting* Governor. Cakobau seemed only too glad to get rid of his responsible advisers, who have run his kingdom into debt. Pending the arrival of fuller information regarding the annexa tion and the changeB it will produce in Fiji, the following narrative by ...

AUSTRALIAN BOWER-BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

AUSTRALIAN BOWER-BIRDS. The Queensland Museum, at Brisbane, which is quite a new institution in the capital of the northern colony, contains some objects of general interest to naturalists ; and the most novel and beautiful, as unequalled in any similar institution in the world, are a collection of bower- birds of Australia (Paradiseidas?— Gould), with the bowers of four distinct species. These have been pre sented to the country by Mr. Charles Coxen, the Crown Lands Commissioner for East Moreton, an accomplished ornithologist and conchologist ; and, having- been mounted by himself, in life like attitudes and natural groupings, they are marvels of 'the taxidermist's art. The donor, it may be mentioned, is brother* ih-law of the celebrated John Gould, F.R.S., &c, whose great folio works on the Birds ofAvMralla and the Mammals of Aus tralia, and the later manual, Handbook of the Birds of Australia, must be well known to many frequenters of the Melbourne Public Library, which w...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 31 October 1874

? Since the date of our last issue, Sir George Bowen has been on a visit to Wahgunyah and Corowa, the latter town being in the territory of New South Wales. His Excellency was accompanied by the Attorney-General, the Minister of Lands, MrV Witt (the member for the district), and Mr. Justice Fellows. At every place he passed en route the Governor was received most enthusiastically, the feeling of loyalty to the British connexion, of which he is the repre sentative, being as conspicuously displayed on all possible occasions in the most sequestered hamlet as it always is in the metropolis. The 'special reporter' for The Argus mentions that at one place an '.' ancient but loyal subject of Her Majesty played the National Anthem in a dismal manner on a flute '' when the Viceregal party arrived; and though the effect of the solo is not described as either grand or in any way overpowering, it may be accepted as the expression of a very widespread feeling. Of course, the usual addresses ? we...

MR. FORREST'S EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

MR. FORREST'S EXPLORATION. We abridge from the Soutli Australian Advertiser of November 2 the following interesting account of this important expedi tion: — From the telegram which Mr. Forrest was so good as to forward to the Adelaide journals on bis arrival at tbe Peake. we were able to report the lead ing facts and results of his explora tion, and by the courtesy with which he has supplied us ampler particulars we can now give a more detailed account of the journey. The party consisted of Mr. John Forrest, leader; Mr. Alexander Forrest;, second in command; Trooper James Kennedy ; James Sweeney, farrier ; aboriginals, Tommy Windich (member of Mr. Forrest's expedition by Eyre's track) and Tommy Pierre.

This fine river was followed up till the furthest sheep station was passed, on the 18th April, and Mount Hale, the most distant po...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus in, its last summary reported on tins subject: — 'No change of any importance has occurred during the past month in the state of the gold-mining industry, and it remains in the somewhat depressed condition in which it has been for Borne months past. It wna hoped during the course of this year that new discoveries would be made respecting quartz reef* or alluvial washes, Buch as were announced during the two or three immediately preceding years, but such has not been the case, and it seems now that until such new discoveries, or valuable improvements in the mode of extracting gold from quartz, are made, gold-mining will remain in its present rather unsatisfactory state, if it does not even retrograde further. Some idea of tbe quantity of gold being obtained in the colony is furnished by the export returns of the Customs department. Those returns cannot, however, be taken other than approximately, and it is only at the close of each individual year,...
