MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

Although there has not been a very great deal to do in music in Melbourne since the last number of The Austral asian SJcetchcr was issued — at least one event has taken place which deserves prominent notice.' The Melbourne Philharmonic Society gave their fourth subscription concert for the present season at the Town-hall on the 24th November. The programme consisted of .the ' Jupiter Symphony' of Mozart, the Mass in C by Beethoven, and a sacred cantata entitled 'Adoration,' the composition of Mr. Austin Turner, of 'Ballarat. The text on which the musical composition is founded is taken almost wholly from the psalms, and the composer has aimed at infusing his music with the spirit of prayer and praise. In this he has succeeded to an extent which is very gratifying to all those who are hopeful for the future of musical art in this country. There is every reason why the school of the sacred oratorio should flourish in England, where a band and chorus of 4,000 people, who are perfect in...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

ill k if ''^-&&*- W ^6 A difficulty of an unforeseen and wholly unexpected nature has occurred in the working of the Education Act. A board of advice has written to the department for in structions. The permanent officials can give none, and have appealed to the Minister. The Minister, in despair, has laid, the matter before the Cabinet, and the Cabinet talk of considering it in the recess. The facts are simple. ' A totally uneducated girl of. under 14 has just been married with the consent of her parents. She had to sign the marriage register with a cross, and couldn't say the alphabet to save her husband's life. 'Who is to be held responsible, the board of advice -want to know, for this young person's attendance at sahool till she reaches the age of 15 ? Did the parents part with their responsibility in the way of fine and imprisonment 'when they handed their child over to a strange man ? And is the husband, as his young wife's guardian, called upon to sacrifice hi...

THE REV. CHARLES CLARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

THE REV. CHARLES CLARK. Long regarded as the most able and popular, preacher in Melbourne, the subject of this sketch is now launching forth into a career which will speedily render his name a 'household word'- throughout Australia. Throwing off tho sectarian fetters ' which have for some time evidently chafed him, he has resolved upon devoting himself on the lay and clerical plutform to the true education of the people. With this end in view, he has gradually extended bis connexion in the lecture department of his profession, and is shortly about to take possession of a pulpit where dogma and doctrine will receive less attention than social morality and Christian freedom. Prior to executing the latter project, he has i resolved upon making a tour through New Zealand, and delivering in the various towns of that colony the lectures on Dickens and Goldsmith which have delighted thousands in Victoria and tbe adjoining provinces. The present moment is, therefore, a peculiarly suitable o...

THE BEECHWORTH CARNIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

THE BEE0HWORTH CARNIVAL. A curious custom is growing up in several towns at different parts of Victoria of holding once a year a great carnival, in which all of the inhabitants take part, the proceeds being devoted to the funds of the local charities, which generally receive a very handsome contribution from this source. The Beech worth Carnival holds a high place in celebrations. of this kind. In tbis, as in most of the others, the great feature of the holiday is a procession of the various benefit societies wearing their regalia, the fire brigade, and Besides these a number of troops of highly irregular cavalry, mounted and uniformed for the occasion. Some of these squadrons are exceedingly fantastic in thoir 'get up,' and the procession composed of such diverse elements blends all times and all places in a manner suggesting that the 'company at a great fancy ball had arranged themselves into troops, and joined the pngeantry. The Beechworth Carnival differs from any other on accou...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

Mit. and Mrs. Williamson have maintained well their popularity at the Theatre Royal /during the usually dull time which comes before Christmas. ' Our American Cousin ' and ' Rip Van Winkle ' gave Mr. Williamson an excellent opportunity of showing of what genuine material ho is composed, aud in a most diverting absurdity, called 'The Chinese Question,' he again , 'proved his wonderful ability in the art of completely concealing his identity. The ..long run of public favour they have enjoj'ed is something quite without parallel in the records of theatrical experience in this colony. During the continuance of the Christmas piece they will be engaged in .aiprovincial arid intercolonial tour, commencing at Ballarat, but it is' quite certain we ; shall see them back ngairijin Melboiirne. The performances at the Prince of Wales Opera-house have latterly been of a miscellaneous, if not an indefinite kind. ' Rob Roy,' with . Bishop's niu sic, and Miss.fVVinston as Helen Macgregor, was an agr...

TWO CHRISTMAS DAYS. A STORY.— [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

TWO CHRISTMAS DAYS. A Stohv. — By M. on X. If Ralph Hope had fallen on his feet into Victoria from one of the neighbouring planets in the year of grace and confusion 1852, less could not have been known about his past life than the ?world knew. A slim, colourless, close-shaven, spectacled, self contained young man. A fellow bound to make his way in the world. Plenty of work in him — every sign, of brains, none of Lenrt. The human tide at that early period of our history ran so strongly towards the wonderful diggings that few had the strength to swim against it. Hope and I threw all our worldly goods — our swags — on a raft; in the shape of a bullock dray than ?was startingfrom Elizabeth-street, and after a week's tramp found ourselves on the hanks of Bendigo Creek, among the first of those who rushed that world-famous gold-field. It was this accidental acquaintanceship that caused me to become Hope's first mate on the diggings. We were fortuitous human atoms, thrown by chance togeth...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

Since ' the Cup' meeting, turf matters have been com paratively quiet. The Bendigo Jockey Club held their annual meeting on the 25th and 26th November, . but it passed off very tamely. The handicaps' were unanimously voted bad, and although the Sandhurst Cup was reckoned 'a moral' fo'r Dr. Bathe's colt Stockbridge, who got in at 7st., the ' moral' did not come off, the winner of the Cup and the Handicap the next day being Imperial, by Mari byrnong, a five year old, with 6st. 101b. to carry and Gst. 131b. respectively ; each race was won in a walk, and yet the winner was not mentioned in the betting until the evening previous to the meeting, when ho came with a rush. The winner, Imperial, is a son of Maribyrnorig by Fisherman, a horse that has further distinguished himself as a sire by getting The Diver, the winner of the Wagga Gup. The Bendigo Meeting was very indifferently managed, and as the heat and dust are always most trying there in summer, the meeting at Quartzopolis was the ...

AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1874. THE PAST YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1874. THE PAST YEAE. It is natural that at a time when the work of the year is well nigh finished, and when we are preparing for the holiday season that attends its close, we should cast a retrospective gla.nce on the incidents of the twelve months, and attempt to estimate their significance. If almost every man does something of this kind in regard to his own private and individual affairs, it is by no means out of place for a public journalist to do so in reference to the community at large, to see what the year has brought us, what we have achieved in its course, what substantial change has taken place, and what progress has been effected. Especially is such a course appropriate in young and rapidly growing communities. Here events and stages of progress succeed each other so fast that it is only by frequent stock taking and review that we can fully appreciate the changes we are passing through, and the direction and speed of our movement. Although the mate...

Sketches with Pen THE TRANSIT OF VENUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

THE TRANSIT OF VENUS. The transit of Venus, which has attracted so much attention, and which has been the occasion of so much preparation through* out the scientific world during the last few years, took place on Wednesday, December 0. Whether the state of the atmosphere in the many stations of observation throughout the world outside this colony was favourable to scientific observation or not cannot be immediately known, but it is cheering to be able to state that throughout Victoria, and more particularly in Melbourne, the weather was favourable, and that good observa tions, the result of which cannot be known till tbey are com bined with observations taken at points on the globe distant from us, were carefully taken by means of the excellent instru ments provided for the purpose. At the Melbourne Observatory, presided over by Mr. It. L. J. Ellery, Government astronomer, the weather was watched very anxiously from early morning, arid it was so unpromising that almost all hope was ...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 26 December 1874

By the outgoing mail His' Excellency Sir George Bowen takes his departure for England on a seven months' leave of absence. He has now been absent from home, we believe, some 15 years, and will doubtless enjoy a visit to the, old world. . Since His Excellency's residence amongst us we think, we may say that he has acquired a good share of popularity. He ihas been found open-handed— a great recomrrieridation iriithe eyes of Englishmen — and has mixed ?freely in the amusements of the people, not so- much as a patron as one who- entered into the sport and thoroughly enjoyed whatever fun was going. His political powers have not been largely called into requisition, 'so we have no means of judging of what* stuff they are made. On arrival, his friend Mr. Francis Avas in office, and when that gentleman was forced to retire through ill- health, all the Governor had to do was to transfer the reins of office to his colleague, the Attorney-General. This can hardly be called an intricate operati...
