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

THE ABQUS FETE. In accordance with a custom which has been annually observed for many years past, a pic-nic was given on Saturday, February 27, by the proprietors of The Argus, The Australasian, and The Australasian Sketcher, to all who are employed in their establish ment, together with their wives, and families. The Flemington Racecourse was again chosen as the scene of the festival, tbe Victoria Racing Club having kindly given the use of the ground and the fine buildings erected upon it. The company, which numbered in' all over 500, left tbe Spencer-street railway station, with Chapman's band, by special train, a few minutes' before 12 o'clock. 'Arrived upon the: course, . this large party disposed of itself in the various ways such an assemblage might be expected to adopt. For those who favoured athletic exercises there was a long programme of sports, and handsome prizes to be com peted for. Some formed themselves into croquet . or quoit parties, others improvised games which ar...

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

Human beings cannot be legally boughtor Bold ?within the precincts of the British Empire, so that we have no means of determining the market value of a well-bred baby under the age of 12 months. But we may be sure that if the freest trade were allowed in the human animal, the greatest lover of his species would hesitate before he would offer even half the sum for a baby that the young bulls of the Mount Derrimut station fetched at the late sale at Kyneton. A father or mother might possibly value their little Sonny Man — ' dark brown eyes, curling hair, and exquisitely white complexion' — at such an absurdly high figure as 650 guineas, but in a market from which parents were excluded no such fancy price could be hoped for. The conclusion is irresistible. Human life is not as valuable intrinsically as bovine. A man is considered to have made a good bargain who buys a well-bred bull calf, of 11 months old, for £682 10s., while, 'Alas ! not all the blood of all the Howards ' would get a...

OUR ZOOLOGICAL COLLECTION : THE LIONS. It is quite natural that the chief point of attraction in the zoological collection in the Royal-park, as in all similar collections, should be the lions. To the youthful, and, indeed, to the adult mind, the lion possesses an interest and a fascination that no other animal has. There is, indeed, great reason to believe that the noble qualities ascribed by nursery tale and popular legend to the ' King of Beasts ' are mainly imaginary, that even his courage is principally a matter of appetite, that his gratitude for services rendered is as fictitious as his submission and devotion to chaste and ...

THE LOSS OF THE COSPATRICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

THE LOSS OF THE COSPATRI0K. It is long since any occurrence has produced so painful effect on the public mind, not only in New Zealand, whither the vessel was bound, but throughout the Australian colonies, as the loss of tbe Cospatrick, and the terrible sacrifice of human life by which it was accompanied. Our artist has drawn some of the more prominent incidents of this shocking catastrophe, from information, descriptions, &c, brought by the mail. We quote one of the accounts of the disaster to elucidate our sketches : — Leaving London for Auckland, New Zealand, on the 11th of September, all went well with the Cospatrick till November 17, when the ship with her precious freight of souls was a few hundred miles off the Cape of Good Hope. It was a lovely day, alight breeze blowing from the north-west quarter, and the sea was quite smooth. Mr. Macdonald, the second officer, kept the watch from 8 in the evening till midnight. Nothing wrong was then suspected, but after the chief...

THE NEW SCOTS' CHURCH, COLLINS-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

THE NEW SOPTS' CHURCH, COLLINS- STREET. The latest addition to the ecclesiastical architecture of Mel bourne is unquestionably the finest church the city possesses. It i possesses the:ad vantage of a fine site, which has been worthily utilised by the erection of the handsome building we depict in our engraving. It takes tbe place of tbe old Scots' Church, which was one of the earliest church edifices of the city, and which was pulled down about two years ago to make room for the large and stately church it was determined to build for tbe numerous and wealthy congregation which then enjoyed the advantage of the ministrations of the late Rev. P. S. Menzies. The principal material used is Barraboolhill (Geelong) stone, which being of a neutral warm colour contrasts exceedingly well with the pure white New Zealand freestone' plentifully employed in the- dressings. The style of architecture is early English, and the general plan is cruciform. Looking at the. church from '.Collins-street,...

THE GAME SUPPLY OF MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

THE GAME SUPPLY OF MELBOURNE. Melbourne and other cities, such as Geelong, Ballarat, and Sandhurst, are, as a rule, tolerably well supplied with game, and to most of our readers who have bad any colonial experience, the subject of our illustrations must be very familiar. At the inter sections of the principal thoroughfares of Melbourne, the game seller during the season may be frequently met with. He is a rough bushman in most cases, or very similar to one in appear ance, and is usually heavily freighted with game of all sorts and colours,. from a turkey, swan, or native companion, to a teal or curlew. Sometimes he displays his stock-in. trade on the pavement,, and invites passers-by to purchase a fine young swan for 'two bob and a tauner,' or a brace of black duck for three half-crowns., 'A fine pair of teal I can throw in for a shilling only. Quite fresh, sir. Just examine them for yourself, to make sure. Who'll buy — who'll buy.' Owing to the extremes of temperature that prevail ...

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

Miss Rosa Towebs, a native of Dunedin, and aged 10, made her first appearance in Victoria at the Theatre Royal, on the 13th ulc. , in a piece entitled 'A Waif of the Streets,' written by. her father. The piece is common- place, and consists of the most used materials, and it has not even the merit of ingenious construction. The- young lady is mechanically clever, but nothing more. She has plenty of confidence, but none of that inspiration which . suggests rare ability. In a piece better qualified to illustrate her child cleverness, she might, perhaps, have appeared to greater advantage. The next piece in which she played was an adaptation of Mr. Farjeon's 'Grif.' It is no better in point of dramatic completeness than the first, and the little lauy did not produce any better impression than in that. It is possible Miss Towers may develope into a very capable actress ; and the fact of her powers not being of a very unusual kind may be an evidence that her great success is* to be gaine...

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

Chronicle of the Month                 Concerning political matters there is hardly a word to say. We hear occasionally of lengthy Cabinet meetings, and rumour has it that Ministers are deep in consultation over the many measures wherewith they intend to dazzle the eyes of the lieges when Parliament assembles. It is to be hoped that they are dedicating their attention to matters of practical moment, and have agreed to leave theoretical. grievances and abstract questions to a more convenient, season. This country is languishing for a statesman, and is unfortunately obliged to content . itself for the present with a few second-rate administrative clerks. . Mr. F. L Smyth has resigned his seat for North Gipps Land, in order, it is said, to be in a position to receive any legal patronage a grateful Government may feel inclined to bestow upon him. It appears that there.is at length som...

Sketches with Pen. WRECK OF THE STEAMER GOTHENBURG. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 20 March 1875

WRECK OF THE STEAMER GOTHENBURG. A great shock was given to the mind of the Melbourne com- munity on March 3 by the telegraphic intelligence of the loss of the steamer Gothenburg on the Great Barrier Beef, north-east coast of Queensland, which reached town that day. The fol- lowing is the telegram which announced the catastrophe : — "Brisbane, March 3.   "The steamer Leichardt, which has arrived from Cooktown,   reports that at daylight last Thursday she picked up a boat, con- taining four men which had been washed away from the steamer Gothenburg, which struck on the previous evening on the Barrier Reef, south-west of Flinders Passage, during a heavy gale, accompanied by thunder, lightning, and blinding rain. The Gothenburg, which was from Port Darwin, had on board 85 passengers, a crew of 36, and 3,000oz. of gold on freight. The vessel was wrecked in lat. 10° 17' 30" and long. 148° 40'. The Leichardt sent a boat to the wreck, and found not a soul left. Th...

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

THE SERICULTURAL FARM. The Castlemaine Representative of February 22 contains an account of the present state of the sericultural farm on Mount Alexander, from which we extract the following:—The supply     of leaves is now equal to the wants of the worms who are being "educated." The magnanerie itself is a large weatherboard building, about 90ft. long and 40ft. broad. The roof is shingled, and at intervals down the sides are large apertures, to which are attached zinc shutters, which are easily closed in the event of a storm, and underneath, m place of ordinary windows, thin muslin is stretched across, admitting abundance of light and air. The trays in which the worms pass all the stages of their existence, from the grain to the cocoon, are suspended by zinc wires from the roof. This is partly to prevent communication with the floor, whereby insects might ascend, and partly to give a slight swinging motion, which is supposed to be agreeable to the feelings...
