FIJI SINCE THE ANNEXATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

FIJI SINCE THE ANNEXATION. The annexation of the Fiji islands to Great Britain has removed many of the obstacles to settlement in that country which formerly existed. The dissensions occasioned by the various attempts to establish a local Government, which was never strong enough to protect the. planters from outrage, have given place to the quiet of firm rule, and capitalists are no longer debarred from investing in the country for want of protection to their property. A now tropical colony, which promises in course' of time to be a very valuable possession, has beeu added to the possessions of the British Crown. It is not likely that its population will ever be very large. The country will be always what is known as a tropical colony— a place where people establish plantations, and when they become wealthy enough retire to those temperate regions which are the home of the white man, leaving their properties to the charge of white servants overlooking coloured labourers. There is n...

QUAIL SHOOTING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

QUAIL SHOOTING IN' VICTORIA. Although Victoria, and, in fact, Australia generally, can hardly vie with other parts of the world as a game-producing country, there are parts of it in which a sportsman may find objects worthy of his attention. At certain seasons of the year turkeyp, swans, ducks, and other kinds of wild fowl are to be met with in abundance, and owing to the labours of the Acclima tisation Society many species of imported game have become common. Rabbits are in many places quite a nuisance, hares are very abundant, and pheasants breed well in certain suitable localities. To those persons who prefer what may be termed legitimate sport — that is, shooting game over dogs — there are many sorts of quail, such as the stubble, the brown, and the painted ; whilst the snipe shooting is probably equal, if not superior, to that to be enjoyed ia any other part of the world, the bird 8 being of a very large kind, and sometimes very plentiful. Our artist had evidently in his eye a ...

Medical men have taken to experimenting on the pain involved.in the use of the cautery, arid have arrived at the conclusion that when tho very fiercest fires. are employed,, and the iron is heatod till it becomes as white as white paper, the application of it to the human form is perfectly painless, and that it is only when red-hot iron is used—which would be like a bar of. ice in 'another place '—that the patient experienced anything like the anguish that we have been taught to be lieve is in store for those who differ from us in our way of thinking.

IS GOLD DISTRIBUTED LUCE OTHER METALS ? [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

IS GOLD DISTRIBUTED LIKE OTHER METALS ? This important subject is thus discussed in an article in The Argun: — Science is usually cautious, yet it in not always cautious enough. Practical men, as they love to term themselves, who pooh-pooh theories, are also apt to fall into the speculations which they despise. In regard to quarts: mining and the distri bution of gold in quartz lodes, both the scientific and practical men have been too positive, and scarcely a year passes but that each finds it necessary to modify his views, anil make the un pleasant but profitable confession that he was most ignorant of what he was most assured. Some time ago we published a paper upon the distribution of gold in quartz lodes, in which ic was pointed out that the balance of the then ascertained facts pointed to the conclusion that tbe gold had a tendency to run out aw great depths were reached. This was the opinion, and probably still is, of a large number of shrewd observers, who had noticed the fa...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

In accordance with an arrangement we announced some time ago, Sir George Bowen left for England by the last mail. Prior to embarking His Excellency was entertained at luncheon by the Mayor of Melbourne. There were about 80 guests present, amongst whom were the members of the Ministry, the judges, and several leading citizens. In proposing the health of the departing Governor, His Worship spoke of the leave of absence which Sir George was about to enjoy as having been well earned, alluded to the state of prosperity and political quietude which enabled us to dispense with his presence for a time, and then, on behalf of the City Council and the citizens generally, wished His Excellency a pleasant voyage, a happy visit, and a safe return. In reply, His Excellency expressed his deep sense of the kind and flattering terms in which his health had been proposed, and the enthusiastic reception it had met with. Ho alluded to the fact that the Melbourne Town hall had been the first port he mad...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1875. HOLIDAYS AND EXERCISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1875. HOLIDAYS AND EXERCISE. There is one noticeable feature of our Australian holiday keeping — at any rate, in all of the southern colonies — and that is the prominent position assumed at such times by athletic sports and exercises. During the recent Christmas and New Year's festivals, there was no point of greater interest than that where the Intercolonial Cricket Match was being played. All will remember the enormous crowds that gathered 12 months ago to see the international matches, in which an eleven of AH England was matched against the pick of Australia. But it is not only on such great occasions as these that this keen interest in cricket, in football, and in other athletic sports is manifested. We need only point to the great gatherings at every ' cup ' cricket or football match on Saturday afternoons, to the number of our cricket and football clubs, to the money spout over their grounds and buildings, to the fact that no ' friendly societies' fete' ...

Facts V Scraps [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

Measles have found their way into the Ballarat Orphan Asylum. Sir Redmond Barry was sworn in on New Year's Day as Ad ministrator of the Government. Five men have been drowned by a boat capsizing at Mackay, Queensland. A large fire occurred at Sandridge on December 28, by which a large number of houses were destroyed. The brothers Forrest, the explorers, met with an enthusiastic reception on their return to West Australia. A discovery of rich quartz on the Upper Yarra, at Reefton, abouc G4 miles from Melbourne, has been reported. A pile of slates fell the other day in Patten's-yard, Pitt-street, Sydney, and killed a labourer named Bird. A Giitii named Hellier died at Sandhurst on Boxing Day from sunstroke. * Ex- King Cakobau left Sydney on December 21 for Fiji, in H.M.S. Dido. A woman, crossing Hawkesbury Plains, New South Wales, on December 23, was burned to death. Daily telegraphic communication between Adelaide and Singapore has been established by means of u lloating station. The...

I^^^^^^JilifiHHiiiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiJfiilte^^^^ylll In- our way we hear a good deal that is new, and, perhaps, for a small audience, are better acquainted with a larger general programme of a high stamp than the bulk of thoso who patronise music in cities which, if they are not larger, are older and nearer the fountains of musical production than we are in this place. Thus we had Verdi's 'Requiem Mass ' performed in Melbourne at the Theatre Royal on Christmas Eve and Christmas Night, and the musical reader who looks at this- page may bethink him whether it comes within his own recollection to have heard it yet. It was not presented in such form as could have been desired, and, therefore, in fairness to the work as well as to our selves we may express only such modified opinion as the circumstances permit. Instead of Stoltz and Waldmann, to whom the work, we believe, was first entrusted, we had our own capable vocalists Palmieri and Zenoni-Gamboa as ...

Sketches with Pencil ouR CHRISTMAS pantomimes : march of amazons. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

OUR CHRISTMAS PANTOMIMES : MARCH OF AMAZONS. In the pantomimes which our theatrical managers put on tho stage with such brilliancy at the Christmas festive season, one of the most attractive features has long been the march of Amazons which is always introduced at some stage or other of tho first part of the pantomime. The precision with wliich.the female warriors go through their' complicated evolutions, the intricacy of their movements, the gorgeous splendour of tho uniforms of the different divisions, the sheen of their silver shields and armour, and, above all, the contrast between tho graceful feminine figures and the guise of horrid war in which they bear part, ail contribute to secure for this part of the extravaganza the greatest interest and the warmest applause. The fair warriors form line, square, and column, march and counter march to the time of the music ; now showing a front line of green, now of white, now of ruby red ; their moving masses now lit up by the radiance ...

- Ill W - - 1 1 THE NEW STEAMER ST. OSYTH. The steamer we depict* on another page deserves attention, not only on account of her great size and magnificent construction— she being the : largest and; longest. which' ever came into Port Phillip— but also, arid in the first place, because she has achieved the great distinction of doing tho voyage in 47£ days, or about three days shorter-time thnn has been made by any other vessel. Great expectations were formed of the St. Osyth from tho descriptions sent; out by the preceding mail, and it must he gratifying to her captain and owners to see how completely they have heeri realised. I twos, indeed, hoped that the voyage would have been niaile1 iiui'' 4(5' jdays, but circumstance!*, and especially a detention ^ of: 24; lioursj^nvolved'hy -calling at St. Jago, pre vented lier from accouiplisliing this feut.
