SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

More interest has been taken in cricket than in racing during the past month, owing to the exciting match between the South and East Melbourne Clubs for the Challenge Cup and the Intercolonial Match with New. South Wales. In the Cup Match more runs were scored than in any previous contest played in the colonies, and when all was over the trophy changed hands, and went to South Melbourne. This result is mainly due to the wretched fielding of the East Melbourne men, who dropped catches one after the other as if their hands had been oiled or greased on purpose to that end. The play, on the whole, was what may be termed 'streaky' — some very good and some very bad, the latter preponderating. The immense number of runs obtained in the match was due chiefly to the excellence of the wickets, the mediocrity of the bowling, and the bad fielding. The game was finished on the 2nd of January, the South Melbourne men winning by 202 runs There were 1,104 runs obtained, as follows : — South Melbou...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 23 January 1875

The pantomime season has been acknowledged at both our Melbourne theatres. In each caso they have very long titles, and are not remarkable for liveliness. That at the Theatre Royal is the least lively. In fact, to speak quite plainly, ih is not lively at all, and the only lively thing in it is Miss Jenny Bryco, who plays tho part of Will o' tho Wisp. Thero is much scenory, which is only of tho protty sort that we have seen so much of ; thero is a groat deal of marching by young ladies clad in what is understood to be Amazonian armour ; there is some singing of an indifferent kind,; and some dancing of a common placo kind. The piece; has been adapted by Mr. Carrington and Mr. Evillo from a piece written by Mr. Strachan, but it is understood that the process of adaptation has consisted in substituting nearly all now matter, retaining only the plot. and the characters. No doubt Messrs. Eville and Carrington have done jwhar was reasonably possible under the 'circumstances ; but, with ma...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

People are glad when the pantomime season comes, and glad when it comes to an end It is a relief to go back to the regular and legitimate business, for all that Boxing Night has, from association, a not inconsiderable charm to the average mind. But, after all, the drama which' most nearly represents the mirror held tip to nature is the drama which the general taste affects. There is even relief in a dull' play sometimes, especially after glitter, and garishness, and paint, and tinsel, and pink tights, and white satin shoes. But when all this meretricious accompaniment has been in association \with dramatic dulnesB, the feeling of relief is very great. So that nobody is likely to have regretted the withdrawal of 'Humpty JDumpty' at the Theatre Royal. The longer life of the Opera-house piece may be taken as indicative of its greater merit. It has been better in all particulars than that over the way— better played, more artistic in all its arrangements, more full of -fun, more genuine...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

^^E^^jMlllIltiHHiHfKiiilHIiBHIiSIiHiSliiJjC^^^^Sll On the 12th of January Madame Anna Bishop once more renewed her acquaintanceship with the Melbourne audience, and brought with her Signor Carmini Morley, a tenor singer of average ability, and Mr. Beaumont Read, sopranist. Madame Anna Bishop (Schultz) is simply a wonder. The manner in which she has preserved the freshness of her upper voice is astonishing ; her lower notes have a veil over them now, as they always had, but to listen to her singing now, and to think of the number of years that organ has been in constant use, is sure to awake admiration for such a beautiful and exceptional gift as she possesses. In appearance, too, and general bearing she displays the vivacity, the bright glance and easy carriage which bespeak a wholesome physique. Certainly a lady of rare endowments. It was not altogether a propitious time for her to commence her business here, in the third week of the pantomime's, and therefore the three concerts sh...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

^^f|li|^^Si SPORT INC ^^Sr^^g1 The race meetings during the month of January were not very important, the principal ones being Albury and Wangaratta. At the first-named place the heat was so great that few persons could enjoy the sport, and some visitors even returned to Melbourne after the first day, rather than face the scorching atmosphere. The sport, however, was pretty good at Albury, where six horses ran for the Cup of 300 sovs. , two miles ; the winner being Mr. Kett's Snowden, by Snowden, 5 yrs., 7st. 71b., Cassio, 5 yrs., 7st. 121b., second, and Ella, 4 yrs., 7st., third. Ten horses ran in the Hurdle Race, which was won by Othello, and nine in the Grand Stand Stakes, which Victoria, by Snowden, won. On the second day the chief event was the Turf Club Handicap of 200 sovs. - in which race nine horses ran ; Cassio, 5 yrs. , 7s t. 121b. , being the winner, After Dark second, and Snowden third. The running of After Dark in the Albury Cup was considered so suspicious that an inv...

Sketches with Pencil INCIDENTS OF THE HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

INCIDENTS OP THE HOT WEATHER. Our artist has in this page fixed some of the most characteristic scenes of the period of intense heat and raging bush fires which will cause the summer of 1875 to be long remembered in Victoria. One scene depicted is that of a crowd of women and children round a fire-plug hole in a street of Melbourne. It is evident that their taps are all dry, and their tubs empty. They have been to each other's houses to beg water, but in vain. At length an adventurous spirit has hit on a solution of their difficulty. He has managed to partly open one of the fire-plugs com municating with the main pipe, and now it is possible to fill a pannikin by dipping it down the hole. The news has spread, and a troop of women and children has soon' collected from , the adjoining neighbourhood, with pails, kettles, dippers, billies, and other articles of domestic culinary use, to carry aveay a supply of the much wanted water. Many such scenes as this were to be witnessed during t...

Sketches with Pen THE SUMMER HEAT AND THE BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

Pi ' ' x ' i ' * - ' THE SUMMER HEAT AND THE BUSH FIRES. During the latter part of the month of January Victoria was visited with nearly a week of more intensely hot weather than has ever been experienced in the period over which our meteoro logical records extend.* The inconvenience of the heat was aggravated in Melbourne by the great scarcity of the water supply, whole districts being left unsupplied with a drop of water for days together. The country districts suffered from an even more terrible calamity, in the shape of destructive buah fires, which swept over large areas, consuming everything in their course, and reducing large numbers of farmers to utter ruin. We purpose giving some account of a time of disaster which will long dwell in the recollection of the residents of Victoria. The weather had been pleasantly cool for many days, when the wind shifted to the north, with a clear sky, and on Monday, January 18, the heat of the sun became very oppressive. From that time until...

TWO ACTING-GOVERNORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

- - TWO ACTING-GOVERNORS. The fact that our Chief Justice (Sir W. F. Stawell) is at present holding, and Sir Redmond Barry (the senior puisne judge) recently held the post of Aottag-Governor of Victoria renders this a fitting occasion for presenting our readers with the portraits of two men who occupy a high place, in the history of the colony. From the elevated posts they have so long filled, the ability and integrity with which their duties have been discharged, the stainless character of their judicial careers, and the enlightened zeal and public spirit they have shown in matters lying outside the strict line of their official duties, it is not too much to say that the long and distinguished public services rendered to the colony by these two gentlemen are unsurpassed in their value and importance, and that they have had a healthy effect on the well-being of the community at large. We subjoin some particu lars of the lives of the subjects of our sketches. HIS EXCELLENCY SIR WILLI...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

It is customary to laugh at the queer collection of odds and ends that schoolboys manage to stow away about their persons, but I question if the average schoolboy's pocket wouldn't compare favourably with the pocket of half the grown men, one meets with. There is a natural disposition in the human mind to secrete letters and papers on private and personal matters in the breast pocket of tho coat we wear, and when these accumulate to any extent there is a still greater natural indisposition to undertake the task of sorting them. It is not tumsual to see a man, when we search of a memorandum, an address, or a note, pulling out a mass of papers frayed at the edges and scored all over with pencil marks, through which he hunts, perhaps, in vain for five minutes without being able to get what he wants ; suddenly recollecting, when he can't find it, that he wore another coat the day he put.it away. But these occasional searches are not altogether in vain. By carefully inspect ing every pap...

EXTRAORDINARY RAILWAY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

EXTRAORDINARY RAILWAY ACCIDENT. An accident of an extraordinary nature is thus reported in the Brisbane Courier of January 27 : — An accident which probably cannot be duplicated in the annals of railway disaster, bo far as the cause is concerned, occurred on Monday evening to the train running from Toowoomba to Warwick, on the S. and W. railway. As the train, which consisted of a saloon car, two composite carriages, a break van, two horse boxes, two sheep vans, and an open waggon, was Bpeeding along about three miles post the Cambooya station, it was struck by a bloat of wind of hurricane ...force. A storm of wind, rain, and hail, was raging, and such was its strength that heavy forest trees in its track were uprooted, and on striking the train, it literally lifted the carriages bodily off the line. Fortunately at this spot the track was level. Had the gust assailed the train but a few minutes later, the carriages would have been traversing. an embankment about 12ft. high, brokenino...
