Sketches with Pen DR. TRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

DR. TRACY. Db. Richabd Thomas Tbaoy, who for many years has occu. pied a foremost place in the medical profession, and who was deservedly respected all through the Australasian colonies, died on the 7th of November, at his residence, ISO Collins* Btreet east, at tbe comparatively early age of 48. Emphatically it may be said of him, 'He should have died hereafter,' for he had obtained bo principal a position that his value — both to the profession of which he was a conspicuous ornament, and to the public, to whom he had become indispensable— was of a very unusual kind. Pie was eminently a successful man, but he had gained his success fairly and honourably. He had a large and lucrative practice, but it had come to him because he was a sound and able practitioner, and it was not in any sense the result of an illegitimate endeavour to secure publicity. He spared no pains to keep himself aucburant with all the discoveries and improvements made from time in the special branch of his art t...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

?His Excellency the Governor has recently been busily engaged in patronising the various entertainments and sports in which it has pleased Her Majesty's subjects in this portion of her dominions to indulge. We do not know whether Sir George Bowen shares the opinion of the late Sir George Oornewall Lewis, to the effect that life would be tolerably enjoyable if it were not for its pleasures, but should he entertain any such notion, we fear that the race week could not have been for him a time of unmixed enjoy ment. In addition to being a constant visitor at the Mel bourne course, Blondin's performances and. the theatres claimed a share of his time, while immediately afterwards two public dinners demanded his presence. The first of these was given by the new Mayor of Melbourne (Councillor Gatehouse) to celebrate his inauguration ; and the second by the Speaker of the Assembly, who took this method' of paying a parting compliment to the Governor and the .late Premier (Mr. Francis), both...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

$? ^ii ♦ «? ^'.''* y*^* **'♦?* * v * wiir -?* 1 3§ I have heard it argued with both earnestness and eloquence that there is no such thing in this world as moral right or wrong ; that those things which we call crimes and sins are purely artificial offences, manufactured by the will of the majority who have, for the purpose of keeping down the minority who have not ; arid that society, when it thinks it to its interest to make wrong right, does so in the teeth of consistency and the laws it has always been passing and enforcing. Kill one man because you think he deserves it, and the majority will hang you ; but kill a million of whom you know nothing bad, and all the honours and wealth of the, world willbe laid at your f eet ; rob to supply your wants, and you are sent to gaol, but plunder a province, or loot a palace, and. you will be raised to the peerage,, and posterity will reverence your name. A conquered rebel is a disloyal wretch^ a successful one a Washington. There is no dou...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

The Williamsons still maintain their popularity at the Theatre Royal, and as they are engaged until, within a few days of Christmas, it may be assumed that the public approval of ' them is safely calculated upon. There may be difference of opinion as to the parts in which they have appeared to most advantage, but there can be none upon the general question of their absolute merit. They have for four months enjoyed a degree of ' popularity which, taken altogether, is without precedent in this city, and only those persons whom nothing ever can please will venture to deny that they have deserved the support which has been decreed them. That they have appeared to greater . advantage in some characters than in others is only to say that, like all other actors, they have their special likings and their special excellences. It was, no doubt, good policy on their part to make their first appearance in a piece which showed them at their best. First impressions, if not everything, undoubtedly...

THE METROPOLITAN CRICKET GROUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

THE METROPOLITAN CRICKET GROUNDS. The national game of England — the game in which its youth are schooled in every manly attribute of mind or body, and which ranks far higher than a mere amusement or pastime — has long since taken firm root in Victorian soil. Blest with a climate almost Italian in its brightness, and which gives us seven long months of sunny summer, the Victorian youth have ever taken to cricket kindly, and, as will yet be green in our readers' memories, have attained sufficient excellence in its pursuit to defeat in one innings the chosen Eleven of England. That excellence is in a great measure to be attributed to tbe number und completeness of the cricket grounds all through the colony, but more especially to those in and immediately around Melbourne. With a wise prodigality, our legislators have always been liberal in granting ' recreation reserves' in all our cities and towns, and in several instances land has been specially granted or vested in trustees for cri...

THE SALOON OF AN AUSTRALIAN LINER: THE RODNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

THE SALOON OF AN AUSTRALIAN LINER : THE RODNEY. To render voyaging as easy and pleasant as possible has long engaged the attention of shipowners, but it is , only of late years that it has become a special study to make the accommodations for oversea passengers not merely com fortable but absolutely luxurious. The change in this respect since the time when only a certain amount of cabin space was provided, and the passenger had to furnish it at his own expense, is something akin to a transformation. The worry and bother of attending to the fitting up, as well as the extra expenditure of time and money, are now avoided, and, with very little need for previous provision or preparation, the intending voyager nowadays can step on board ship and find his cabin carpeted and curtained and fitted up with almost all the accessories and appointments of a bedroom in a hotel. This agreeable, not to say wonderful, change is in some measure a result of the rivalry, born of keen competition, betwe...

VOLUNTEER REVIEW ON THE MELBOURNE RACECOURSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

VOLUNTEER REVIEW ON THE MELBOURNE RACECOURSE. . The principal event on the holiday observed on November 9 in honour of the birthday of the Prince of Wales was the review of the volunteer forces on the Melbourne Racecourse. There was an excellent muster of the corps, but the day was rather squally and uncertain, which very much reduced the attendance of the public. The proceeds of the charges for admission at the gates were devoted to the Hospital Fund, which derived a contribution of £300 from this source. ? .The troops were on the ground about noon, being brought 'from town by the railway. Each corps as it formed at its appointed place of rendezvous marched to the Spencer-street railway station, whence they were carried out to the course by special trains Tunning at frequent intervals. As many of the corps' were accompanied by their bands playing spirited music, the streets of the city presented a lively appearance. One of the greatest attractions was the Garrison Artillery Corps, ...

Sketches with Pencil M. BLONDIN IN MID-AIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

M. BLONDIN IN MID-AIB. On the arrival of M. Blondin in Melbourne a good many difficulties had to be got over before a suitable piece of ground could be allotted to him on which to erect the enormous tent in which his performances take place. At length a capital site was selected on the hill abovo Prince a bridge, in the portion of the domain used as a football ground by the members of the Victorian Artillory. The position was a capital one, and admirably adapted to the purposes to which it was to be applied. The vast canvas enclosure was erected; the strong cable rope raised and strained and properly steadied with guys, and everything was with great celerity got ready for the opening perform ance. This took place on Wednesday, November 4. About 3,000 persons attended, His Excellency the Governor being amongst those present. Doubtless the number would have been much greater had it not been for the other attractions offered that day to sightseers, and especially the grand show of the ...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

^^^^^^^HllhHtaHi?fi»HHtmHtHi»fHili61!^g^^Ti It is not likely that Madame Arabella Goddard will ever see this place again. She lias gone, and for good ; for whatever may happen to her, and she has already, ex perienced quarantine and shipwreck in Australia, she has left behind her Buch an influence as will always bo quoted by those who admire the art she adorns. If she has. not enriched herself with money it is to be regretted ; but it is certain she has by her exemplary playing taught ua. lessons whicli are really beyond price. Her farewell appearance in Melbourne was given at the Opera-house on the 23rd ' October. , There was a grand audience present, and every thing was fitting. She played her own part in the D minor . concerto of Mendelssohn, with orchestral accompaniment, and the whole performance was worthy the occasion. There was that stamp about the audience which inducod them to give the greatest praise where it was fairest earned, and Madame Goddard never appeared in all he...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

I The great Cup meeting — to be present at which visitors flock to Melbourne from all parts of 'Victoria, and many from the neighbouring colonies— came off at Flemington on the 31st. of October and the5th, 6th, and 7th of November. It may be summed up on the whole as an extraordinary success, notwithstanding that the weather on the. Derby day was cold and blustery. Fortunately, on the day previous to the Cup a thunder storm and heavy rain made, the air cool and laid the dust, and the Cup day was cool and pleasant. On the Derby day, the unpropitious weather notwithstanding, there was a large assemblage on., the course, but it was nothing compared to the thousands that attended the meeting on the 5th. There could not have been Ies3 than 60,000 persons on the course,' some authorities put the number higher. In the ' reserve the crowd of elegantly-attired ladies quite filled the monster stand and the la wri. The dresses were of all descriptions, some gorgeous and magnificent, others dis...

THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SHOW. Amidst the points of attraction for the many visitors who crowded to Melbourne during what may fairly be termed the ' Carnival Week,' in which the race for the Melbourne Cup is run, the spring exhibition of the National Agricultural Society of Victoria was one to which a very large amount of interest was di rected. The show was h eld on the grounds of the society, on the St. Kilda road, and the attendance during the days it was open was extremely large. It was ? the fashion to go to the show, and thousands went' whose interest in matters agricultural or bucolic is generally of the slightest nature. The display of machinery was very imposing, and the live stock showed the advanced stage to which the breeding of cattle and sheep is broiight in this colony. The show was the fourth spring exhibition of the society, and was opened by His Excellency the Governor. It was held under the joint auspices of the Department of Agriculture and the Nationa...

THE MELBOURNE CUP DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

THE MELBOURNE CUP DAY. Melbourne has many great holidays in the year, but the greatest of all is the ' Cup Day,' on which is held the greatest race that takes place in the Australian colonies. It is a holiday shared in by the greater part of the community, and unlike the festive seasons of Christmas and the New Year, the interest and the amusements and the crowd are all concentrated at one spot, and every mind is occupied by the one object. The day has not, indeed, the traditional glories of the English Derby Day, but perhaps the interest felt in the result is more widely 1 spread through the community here than it is at home. The: ? comparatively limited extent of the population enables a larger percentage to have some actual knowledge of the horses and to possess some intelligent estimate of the chances than is possible in England. Not that the interest felt is at all limited by the knowledge possessed. Everybody is horsey at this' time, and thousands who never saw one of the expe...

AN ENCOUNTER WITH A KANGAROO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

AN ENCOUNTER WITH A KANGAROO. From the Albury Banner, November 14, we extract tbe fol lowing exciting narrative : — ? Perhaps the most sensational encounter with a kangaroo that has ever been recorded occurred a few days Bince near Mullen gandra, on the main Sydney-road. The hero of the adventure was Mr. John Burke, who has for many years been engaged on the Mountain Creek station in the employ of Mr. Morrice, and whose account of the affair we have endeavoured to reproduce ns faithfully as possible. It appears that Mr. Burke was riding between Mullengandra and Mountain Creek when he started three kangaroos, and immediately gave chase. The quarry headed in the direction of Mullengandra, and for some miles the pace was pretty hot. Brush fences and fallen timber were, of course, no serious obstacles to the longtails, and, well mounted on a wiry old stockhorse, Burke found little difficulty in maintaining a respectable position in the hunt. After a smart spin, in the course of which tb...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1874. FUNERAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 28 November 1874

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1874. FUNERAL REFORM. The fact that movements for the reform of funeral arrangements have arisen spontaneously at Adelaide and Sydney may be taken as a proof that some change is called for, and that public feeling is aroused by the subject. Oppression, when it becomes too severe, gives rise to re bellion and revolt, and it would appear that the despotism of the undertakers has strained the patience of the public too far. It is only necessary to call attention to the need of reform to achieve it. The gloomy pageantry which the undertakers have succeeded in imposing on the sorrowing bereavement of mankind as a proper and suitable mode of exhibiting its feelings can have very little to say in its defence should the question ever be fairly raised. It is ugly, it is seedy, tawdry, unmeaning, and absurd. Further more, it is expensive, and its cost has to be met at a time that is already one of loss and misfortune, which it tends to aggravate unnecessarily. Why, one ...
