AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHERS SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1875. THE LESSONS OF THE HOT SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1875. THE LESSONS OF THE HOT SEASON. The circumstance will at once strike readers of this issue of The Sketcher that a large part of the paper, both engravings and letterpress, is devoted to the representation and description of the conditions of the very hot time by which we have this summer been visited, and the baleful consequences which it has brought. The season has been one of the most disastrous Victoria has known for many years, perhaps the most severe that it has ever known. The heat was for some time unprecedented in its intensity and steady long continuance. In Melbourne the city was ex posed to all the miseries resulting from a deficient supply of water, and the public health suffered to an extent which was fatally reflected in the enormous increase of mortality. In the country districts matters were even worse. Country residents had to endure the intolerable heat as well as those in town ; their water supplies in some cases were dried altogether u...

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

GEELONG. Geelong, so called after the native name of 'Jilong,' is one of the oldest towns in the colony of Victoria, its establish ment being almost simultaneous with that of its big sister, Melbourne. It is Bituated on a beautiful land-locked bay. Unfortunately, however, the entrance to it was choked up for many years by a sand bar, which seriously militated against the progress of the place, and gave Melbourne a start Geelong has never been able to recover, and we think we may safely say never wilL This bay was discovered in tbe first year of the present century by Lieutenant Matthew Flinders, but it was not till 1835 that anything more was beard about the ex ploration of this part of the colony. On the 26th May in that year, Mr. John Batman, the avant courier of an association formed in Tasmania for the purchase of lands for pastoral purposes in Victoria, obtained from the Douta Galla tribe of natives, by a treaty which was not worth the parchment it was written on, the assignmen...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

In the present temper of the public mind politics are likely to remain in abeyance so long as Parliament is in recess. Those who can remember the fiery ? excitement which animated nine-tenths of the adult male population. some years ago, in. connexion with all public affairs, cannot help feeling amazed at the contrast which they recognise at the present day. Matters which would then have Bet the. country in a blaze, have assembled the people together everywhere in public meeting, and set. every blatant demagogue upon his cherished stump, now either pass- unnoticed, or evoke comments of such a, mild descrip tion as show more conclusively, perhaps, than silence the plentiful lack of interest with which they are regarded. This state of suspended political animation cannot be looked on with satisfaction by any one whlo has the interest of the country at heart. It is better that the people should be a little over-interested in public affairs than be absorbed entirely in buying and sellin...

A VICTORIAN MODEL FARM.—NARREE-WARRAN GRANGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 February 1875

A VICTORIAN MODEL FARM.— NARREE- WARRAN GRANGE. This picturesque spot, which our artist : has chosen for illustration, is the j property of Mr. W. .8., Lyster, (better, known hitherto as an operatic and theatrical manager than as a breeder of shorthorn cattle and a maker of first-class. cheese. It is situated about 20 miles from Melbourne, under the Danderiong Ranges, and not far from Fern- tree Gully. Nine years ago the best part of it, was an impenetrable morass. Where now the open clover fields of richest posture- are studded with sleek ruminants in the perfection of good condition, there then used to be an unbroken continuity of such growth as that represented in the sketch entitled, 'An Original Bit,' and with this addition, namely, that the ground all over the fiats was more or less under water. Narree-Warran Grange comprises some 1,200 acres of freehold land, of which the part possessing most interest (some 200 acres) is shown in the sketches. But as the work of improve ment ...

DESTRUCTIVE HURRICANE AT FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

DESTRUCTIVE HURRICANE AT FIJI. On the 7th of January the Fiji group was visited by a disastrous hurricane, which did great damage at Levuka. The Fiji Times of the 9th has the following with reference to the shipping in the harbour : — ? 'As morning dawned, we were anxious to find out the fate of the shipping, and directed our glass to where H.M. schooner Beagle had been anchored the night previous, together with two small craft, but we were only rewarded by a sight of the angry waters, not a vessel being in sight. We directed our gaze to the Bouth, and found only a few of the vessels anchored the night previously plunging at their anchors. A few minutes revealed to sight the schooners Beagle and Tui Lau. stranded aide by side on the point opposite Dr. Brower's, with tbe cutter Ethel riding at anchor in rather dangerous proximity with the debris of a fourth vessel between the Tui Lau and the Beagle, which turned out to be the cutter Albert, which had been completely smashed up betwee...

THE NEW FIFTY-TON CRANE, SOUTH WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

THE NEW SOOTS' OHUROH, OOLLINS-STREE T. THE NEW SOOTS' OHUROH, OOLLINS-STREE T. THE NEW FIFTY-TON CRANE, SOUTH WHARF. Our engraving gives an illustration, from a photograph taken by Mr. Bur man, of the very powerful steam crane erected on the south wharf of the River Yarra, and intended for lifting steam, ships' boilers and other very heavy weights. The crane stands on massive foundations, which deserve as much notice for their solidity and careful construction as the machinery by -which they are surmounted. They were commenced in January, 1874, Mr. Cornwell being the contractor, and the amount of the contract about £8,000. There is 42,000ft?. of bluestone in tbe job, or about 3,360 tons. Tn the first place, an excavation was made 44ft. by 38ft., and 17ft. deep. The basaltic rock, of which, the bottom consists, was levelled and filled in with concrete to a depth of lft. Two complete courses, lft. each, of rough punched bluestone, were then laid, and the masonry continued upwards, le...

A smart shock of earthquake was felt at Maryborough, China man's, Timor, Majorca, Natte Yallock, Norwood, Rathecare, Mariner's Reef, and Adelaide Lead on tbe morning of March 1, The earthquake did not make itself felt at the Melbourne Observatory.

The direction of the shock is not .very clearly known, but it appears to have been from south to north. It was heard and felt over the whole of Maryborough, tbe noise and shaking being noticed from, opposite points of the town east and west — viz , the vicinity of the gaol and the railway station.

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus, in its last monthly summary, reported : — 'There has been very little information of importance; published re specting the progress of mining during the past month. _ The dulness which for. some time past han hung over the mining industry still continues, and seems likely to do so until further discoveries are announced, of auriferous quartz reefs or alluvial runs of washdirc. When the last English mail left here it was announced that the Winter's Freehold Company, who own an extensive alluvial claim at Ballarat, which has for years past been prospected at great cost by colonial and English share- . holders, was in financial difficulties owing to the bank, which had advanced them large sums of money, amounting to £30,000, having declined further accommodation under the then existing circumstances. Although the action of the bank appeared to be justifiable from its point of view, it was considered very inopportuue and unfortunate for the sharehold...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1875. HIGHER EDUCATION FOR GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1875. HIGHER EDUCATION FOR GIRLS. The Presbyterian Church has earned the thanks of the community at large by at length realising the project it has so long entertained, in establishing the college for young ladies, which has been built at East Melbourne, and was opened the other day. The institution cannot fail, if carried out in accordance with the views of its founders, of exercising a favourable influence, on the general character of higher female education in this colony ; and, indeed, such an influence has long been called for. It has been quite apparent for a long while that a large number of girls have been labouring to acquire a sound comprehensive education of the same kind that their brothers obtain in the public schools. But the kind of instruction which passes current under the title of education for young ladies is very little fitted to lend them much assistance. Cramming for examination, indeed, they could procure, and the result' has shown that upo...

Fine ARTS. THE ART UNION OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

THE ART UNION OP VICTORIA. We have received a set of the photographs issued this year to subscribers to the Art Union of Victoria. We are sorry to be compelled to regard them as much inferior as a whole to the set issued last year. The best of the six is the view given by Mr. W. Ford, 'After Stray Cattle.' Some stock-riders are searching for,, strayed cattle in a densely timbered mountain glen, and are comparing notes with a passing horseman ridings along the forest track. This picture is chiefly noticeable for the fine bright glow of sunshine in which the trees stand on the side of the range opposite the shady obscure spot in the foreground of the scene. Mr. H. J. Johhstone in his 'Old Mates' has a picture in his characteristic style, careful, faithful in its i. details, and photographic in its attention to microscopic correctness. It represents the visit of an evidently wellto do man to, one who was once his mate, but who since that time has had to bear the hard pressure of life, ...

SPORING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

jn^jS^w^ sporting ^^^^^- After the Geelong Meeting there was a general exodus of sporting men to Tasmania, to be present at the meetings at Hobart Town and Launceston, the former taking place on the 11th and 12th February, and the latter on the 23rd, 24th, and 25th. At neither place was the racing of much account, but the trip was a pleasant one, as the scenery, round Hobart Town is very; fine, and the new racecourse,, situate about five miles from the city, is beautifully placed. It is gratifying to observe that at Hobart Town racing has revived after a many years' slumber. An influential , club has been formed, a handsome grand stand built, and the programme was a very liberal one, no less than 300... sovs. being given to the Hobart Town Cup, a two miles handicap, and 150 sovs. to the T.T.C. Handicap, also 100 sovs. to a steeplechase.: About 10,000 persons were* present on the course the first day, on the second the weather was unfavourable. The Cup was won by. a Vic torian horse,...
