FREEMASONRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

FREEMASONRY. The meeting of Freemasons which was held at the Free masons'-hall in Latrobe-street, last February, has resulted in the adoption of a form of memorial, which is now in courso of signature. It is prepared in quadruplicate, and is addressed to the heads of the E. , I.*, and S. Constitutions. In it are set forth tho desirability oj. forming a Grand Lodge of 'Victorian masons, and the matter-of-fact statement is made that such an institution can only result from the independent and unassisted action of those who desire it, for it is recognised that it is ultra vires for existing Grand Lodges, to ' suggest, acquiesce, or assist in the formation of other Grand Lodges.' Tho memorial, then, viewed in this light, is a formal notice, phrased with masonic courtesy and in terms of fraternal respect, announcing the intention of tho signatories to carry out a certain .line of conduct. Tho reasons why this step is taken are very briefly stated. A very great deal more might have been g...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

' The Wicked World,' the latest of Mr. Gilbert's poetic comedies, which has constituted the principal item in the bills of the Theatre Royal since the 14th of April, is not the best of the series. It is essentially good, and beautiful, and refined, and free from the gaudy grossness of burlesque, but, compared with 'The Palace of Truth' and 'Pygmalion and Galatea,' it does not hold the admirers of Mr. Gilbert in sucli complete thrall. It wants the vitality of these two pieces. For while they are rippling streams of dramatic action, it may be likened to a pool, here and there, it is true, fanned into movement, and once or twice lashed into a little storm, but never seeming to move forward as they do. Moreover, it has the serious defect of not ending with the climax. It is, perhaps, not easy to say how it could be made to terminate with the situation where Selene sinks upon the ground and Ethais breaks from hey to return again to earth ; but there is no doubt that this is the point at ...

SKETCHES PEN WITH IN A BARK HUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

IN A BARK HUT. By Marcus Clarke. There were three of us— Dugald M'Alister, Jack Thwaites, and myself. The place was called, in the grandiloquent language of the Bush, 'The Dinkledoodledum Station' (I like these old native names), because it was situated on the Dinkledoodledum Creek. Dinkledoodledum — as any philologist can guess by the sound of it— means the Valley of the Rippling Streamlets, but, alas ! never a rippling streamlet did our eyes behold during our stay in the inhospitable valley. The station had just been purchased by Thwaites's brother - is not his name now synonymous with gold, from the Great Glimmera to the Adelaide Desert ?— and had been overstocked by its former proprietor. Along the Glimmera banks, where jovial but family- burdened Boschman kept his boundary-riding habitation, the ground was as bare as a billiard-table, and the Travelling Sheep that callod the Great Glimmora their ' feeding-   track' were only too glad to escape beyond the Dinkledood...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 May 1873

Parliament meets for the despatch of business on the 13th inst. In the meantime Ministers have been busily engaged in preparing measures to be submitted for its consideration, and certain of these are not only important in their cha- racter, but are also urgently needed. Of course, there are speculations afloat as to the prospects of the Ministry, but there is no reason to think that it is in any danger, or that it will encounter serious opposition when it meets Parliament. 'We are to have an election for the Lower House, to fill a vacancy caused by Mr. Spensley's absence in Europe, but it is not likely to have any political significance, the constituency affected greatly preferring local to general interests. There will also be an election for the East Bourke Boroughs, vacated by the resignation of Colonel Champ. Mr. Higin- botham has accepted a requisition to stand, and will probably be returned without opposition. The elaboration of our new educational system continues to occupy ...

AWFUL TRAGEDY AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

AWFUL TRAGEDY AT SEA. The following narrative of a terrible outrage that occurred on board ship recently reached us from Sydney on May 10 : — 'Intense excitement has been caused in Sydney by arrival , of the ship Rifleman, from London, which anchored there in chnr'go of tho chief officer. He reports that six weeks ago, when tho ship was off the coast of Brazil, the mate took the watch at 4 in tho morning, when tho man at the wheel informed him that something was. wrong with the men's grog, as on the previous night all tho men were bad, and some of them wero not able to turn out. They believed themselves to have been poisoned. The mate on hearing this walked forward to the front of tho poop, and leant over the rail, wondering what could have occasioned the sudden illness of the crew. Whilst so employed the steward came on deck and said to the mate, 'The captain wants you, sir.' The mate thereupon went below, and knocked at the captain's door, but receiving no answer, knocked a second...

POETRY. THE SONG OF TIGILAU. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

POETRY. THE SONG OF TIGILATJ. Tigilau le alo O Tui Viti. Tigilau the son of Tui Viti. [The following is an attempt to paraphrase a legend of Samoa, remarkable inasmuch as it gives evidence of direct intercourse between Samoa and Fiji, and shows by the use of the term 'Tui Viti,' that a king once reigned over all Fiji. Ihe singularly poetic and rythmical original will be found in a paper contributed by Mr. Pritchard, F.A.S.L.. &c, to the Anthropo logical Society of London. — Memoirs, 18G3-4, vol. I.] ? I. The song of Tigilau the brave, Sina's wild lover, Who across the heaving wave From Samoa came over : . Came over, Sina, at the setting moon ! II. The moon shines round and bright ; She, with her dark-eyed maidens at herside, Watches the rising tide, While balmy breathes the starry southern night, While languid heaves the lazy southern tide ; The rising tide, O Sina, and the setting moon ! III. The night is past, is past and gone, The moon sinks to the west, The sea-heart bea...

SOCIALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

SOCIALITIES. Oots can hardly bo considered guilty of a breach of confi dence in saying that he is acquainted with families where the husband and wife no longer love so passionately and fondly as they professed their intention of doing fos ever previous to the time when he, N., took her, M., to love, honour, and cherish till death did them part. It is use less to discuss who is to blame. N. talks of temper, extra vagance, and cold coffee ; while M. retaliates with late hours, whist playing, and prolonged absences for no satis factory reason. They are probably both right, and conse quently both wrong. Each can see the mote in the other's eye, and thinks it ten times the size of the matrimonial beam in their own. Both mote and beam are there, how ever, and prevent them from seeing each other with the old eye of love. Now, in these winter evenings, when even newly-married people find it so hard to keep from yawning and making themselves disagreeable in the absence of strangers, what a p...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

The Gilbert and Robertson season at the Theatre Royal was fittingly accompanied, towards its close, by two benefits, ono to Miss Carey and the other to Miss Shepparde. To the efforts made by these young ladies in working out the purpose of the authors, as expressed in their principal female characters, the management has been much indebted. It was right, thorefore, that tlioy should be thus compli mented. On the occasion of Miss Carey's benefit, on the 16th of May,she selected 'Pygmalion and Galatea 'and 'School,' and on that of Miss Shepparde's, on the 22nd, the bill included 'Caste' and 'Pygmalion and Galatea.' On both nights there was a large attendance, and the display of much enthusiasm on the part of the audience. To each lady was presented a piece of jewellery — to Miss Carey a diamond cross, and to Miss Shepparde a diamond bracelet, also to each a life governorship in the Dramatic Association. These presentations have almost necessarily given rise to a good deal of conversat...

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

BOTANICAL EXCURSIONS IN TASMANIA. No. II. There are many persons in the world who regard the study of plants as frivolous and a waste of time ; who think, indeed, that nothing can be useful unless thoy can see some palpable and direct benefit arising from it.. But, letting alone the value of a knowledge of plants, their medicinal properties, their oils, thoir bark for tanning or for dyes, their adaptability for the manufac ture of paper, &c, especially in a new. country, there is tho advantage b£ the occasional outing, at early morn perhaps, to ' Court tho fresh air, oxploro tho heaths and woods,' relieving' tile strain which business cares of necessity imposo ; nnd, it should, moreover, be borne in. mind that the vigour which the understanding derives from exercise on any subject can scarcely1 be over-estimated. It is Dr. Johnson— not tho lexicographer, but tho naturalist— who says, 'He that enlarges his curiosity after the works of Nature demonatrably multiplies ? the inle...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

By tho time this paper sees publication the Italian opera season of 1873 will have come to an end. . When all the circumstances connected with this period come to be con sidered, wo think tho -patronB of opera have overy reason to be satisfied. The season occupied 12 weeks, dating from the 8th of last March, and during that time 19 operas have been produced. Hore is a list of them, with tho names of their composers. Verdi ranks first, on account of the number of his works which were represented, four — namely, ' Un Ballo in Maschera,' ' La Traviata,' 'II Trovatore, and ' Rigoletto. ' Rossini was repre sented by three — namely, 'William Tell,' 'Mose in Egitto,' and 'II Barbiere di Siviglia.' Bellini by three — ' Norma,' ' La Somnambula,' and ' I Puritani. ' Meyer beer by three — namely, 'L'Africaine,' ' Gli Ugonotti,' and ' II Profefca.' Donizetti would haye equalled the top score but for the lion-performance of 'Poliuto,' which was promised as a novelty in the prospectus issued befo...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 14 June 1873

Oun 'High Court of Parliament' is once more sitting, and, as far as we can judge from present appearances, the session bids fair to be a quiet one. Apart from the fact that the Ministry has not as yet been guilty of any very flagrant sins of omission or commission -which would, justify an attack on its position, there are various reasons, known only to the initiated, which render any hostile movement on the part of the Opposition extremely improbable. Indeed, Mr. Francis's Administration is just at present in luck's way. The Border duties question has been settled at last, in a manner which, if not entirely satisfactory, is tolerably favourable to Victorian interests, and the firm stand taken- in connexion with the proposed new contract for the conveyance of the European mails has induced Lord Kiniberley to withdraw certain proposals, which it was impossible for us to accept without loss of self-respect. Parliament was summoned to meet for the despatch of business on Tuesday, the 13...
