SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

It is, perhaps, not unnatural that a paper avowedly edited by a clergyman, and '* containing contributions from ministers of all evangelical denominations,' should feel and express annoyance at a comparison I drew; last month between the men who founded Christianity at their own cost and those who, in the present, having taken to it as one of the polite professions, consider themselves .wronged by society because their services are only rated at a .miser able £400 a year. But the clerical contributors to the Southern Cross, the paper that takes me to task for what I have written, and accuses me of un charitableness and Pharisaism, must remember that even in religious matters the great natural laws bearing on supply and demand hold good. Doctors and lawyers, poets and painters — nay, I regret to say, even newspaper writers — are to bo found, who, with a large family, have to live on a smaller income than the clerical profession considers necessary for holding body and soul together. ...

THE " GRAND NATIONAL" AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

THE ' GRAND NATIONAL' AT BALLARAT. Steeplechasino has long been a popular sport in the colonies, and Ballarat has for years taken the lead in cross-country racing. Our illustration of the subject is derived from the late race at Ballarat for the 'Grand National/' and is a spirited repre sentation of the scene presented at the time when the. horses have just started on their four miles' journey.- The distance run over at Ballarat is always longer than at Flemingtori and'other places, and the contest is more similar to that held annually in the spring. of the year in the old country, at Liverpool, and from which race the term ' Grand National' is derived. The . country gone over at Ballarat is big and stiff, as some horses found to their cost, one 'of them carrying away a couple of panels, notwith standing the solid character of the fence, and turning a complete somersault inconsequence. The horses that competed in the late race at Ballarat were most of them finished jumpers. The winn...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

^S^»^tfiiliHiiKii?ii}iiii}iiiiptsiiiiiHill^P^^Tiij| The musical doings of the past two months have been, with one or two very noteworthy exceptions, in the hands of the perennial Madame Anna Bishop and her clever company. We' mention Mr. Guenett's matinie as an event of some importance, both on account of the good quality of the programme and because of the dSbut of Miss Lundborg, a young lady pianist, and pupil of Mr. Guenett, of whom we are sure to hear more in due time. We accept the term matin6e as meaning a concert of music to be given in the afternoon with, the same child-like and bland faith which, in the mind of Mr. Sam Weller, admitted the connexion between a leg of mutton at 9 in the evening and a 'swarry.' The assemblage at Mr. Guenett's concert consisted mostly of ladies, and not too many of them, while thinly inter spersed among them were a few such idle persons as the representative of The Australasian Sketcher, and a few others who were not; ashamed to be seen worship...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

There is absolutely nothing doing in the political, world at present. Deputations wait frequently on Ministers in view of, the coining session, to press/their wants on the attention of these august gentlemen, but they very seldom succeed in securing a straightforward . answer. 'Their representations will be taken into consideration,' or. 'the . Government has not overlooked the matter,' or some reply of equal value, is generally as much as they can manage to elicit. There may be, of course, many explanations of this reticence. Some statesmen, we know, think they are nothing unless mysterious ; others are troubled with a plentiful lack of wit, and affect reserve to cover their inability to form an opinion. But by far the larger number, unfortunately, in these days of 'popular' Governments are uncommunicative because it is found expedient to wait until the last moment before expressing a decided opinion, in order to have the advantage of adopting the strongest side when the moment com...

HUSTRALMSIAN SKCTCHCR SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1875. PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE LATE EPIDEMIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1875. PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE LATE EPIDEMIC. During tho present season the chief cities of the various colonies of Australia have had a warning of a very serious nature, which it would be fatal negligence to overlook They have been visited by sickness of a very malignant type, which has very largely increased the rate of mortality, and swept off hundreds of victims. The ordinary relations of the birth-rate to the death-rate have been reversed in Melbourne and Sydney, and the various diseases which have attacked the general health have destroyed far more than the numbers of those born have been sufficient to make good. The natural increase has not only been arrested, but it has had to give place to a decrease — which, of course, is only to be regarded as temporary. The greater part of the extra mortality is due to the very virulent epidemic of measles and the diseases which often follow in the train of that complaint. The consequence has been that the communities ha...

SPORTINC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

Oi7B last monthly budget of news brought us to the opening day of the V.R.O. Autumn Meeting, when Mel bourne and Stockbridge ran their memorable race for tho Leger. The meeting was continued the following Thursday. On the morning of that day rain set in heavily, and by the time the first race was set to berunthe'eourso was very wet and holding. Rain fell more or less all day, and the attendance, consequently, was very poor. Edith won the Hopeful Stakes, and Maid of AH Work the Sires' Produce Stakes, , beating Canterbury, Fraternity, and three others. , Newbold won the Hospital Stakes, Attraction second, and Imperial third ; and then the Australian Cup. was decided. Thirteen, horses started in the mud, in which Lurline, the New Zealand mare, seemed to revel, winning in the commonest of canters. That useful horse Wollomai, 5 yrs, 7st. 51b. , was second, and Benjiroo, G yrs, 7st. , third. Lurline's weight was 8st. lib. The Diver, 4 yrs, 8st. 131b., was not 'placed, - and behind him wer...

Fine ARTS LOAN EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

I S5Sm ^^^M^^^*£T'^!^^^^^^^^^a^^^^^^^?'-'\*^T^^^^^M^Si^-i^l!^? ^3*T^^''''~'iiar*^T S XOAK EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS. Some time ago the council of the Victorian Academy of Arts resolved upon getting up an exhibition of such pictures as it might be able to borrow from gentlemen in Melbourne who are known to be in possession of valuable works of art. Circulars were accordingly sent to the owners of the chief collections of this kind, and very liberal responses were met with. Many gentlemen, in the most generous manner, at once agreed to contribute to the exhi bition, and by this means about 200 pictures of various orders of merit were got together, and a very respectable collection opened to the public. So valuable a collection of pictures the property of private owners was never shown in this city. It was opened to the public on March 29, the proceeds of the exhibition being devoted to the building fund of the academy, which hopes from this source to obtain a large contribution towards ...

The Theaters [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

Little Miss Towers, at the Theatre Royal, if not exactly a failure, was considerably less than a success. The public, therefore, were glad of the five nights of ' Pygma lion and Galatea' which followed, with MiBs Carey in her original character — that is to say, original so far as this part, of the world is concerned. They were glad to see Mr. Goppin, too, but they missed poor Hattie Shepparde in the part of Oynisca, to which Miss Stammers is not equal, however willing she may be. That pleasant gentleman, the Fakir, too, who came after Mr. Gilbert's mythological comedy, was not an unacceptable item in the programme of the Roy al for a few nights. On Good Friday that eyerlast ingfavourite, Madame Bishop, commenced at the Royal a sea son of musical interludes, beginning, of course— being Good Friday— with sacred music, and having from the Saturday associated with her Mademoiselle Claus, who has made for herself so enduring a place in the estimation of musical people that she has now c...

EASTER MONDAY AT THE ZOOLOGICAL-GARDENS. EASTER MONDAY AT THE ZOOLOGICAL-GARDENS. EASTER MONDAY AT THE ZOOLOGICAL-GARDENS. At holiday times the fine gardens of the Acclimatisation and Zoological Society, in the Royal-park, attract a degree of interest which, if we may judge by the number and apparent pleasure of the visitors, is always increasing. The gardens are large and well situated, and the higher part commands a fine view of the large tract of country extending northwards to the foot of the Mount Macedon ranges, including Keilor Plains, and the flat region which stretches for a wide distance to the westward. The grounds themselves are well kept, and although the floral display is, of course, regarded as a subordinate matter when compared with the zoological show, it is by no means neglected, and adds much to the bright and attractive aspect of the gar- dens. These are laid out so as to meet the many varied require- ments of the society. The society has, as its name implies, a ...

COLONIAL BEER: A VISIT TO A BREWERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

COLONIAL BEER: A VISIT TO A BREWERY. The art of making, beer is one of the most ancient known to man. From the earliest ages the desire implanted in the human mind to drink deeply of beer has been ministered to, and in- toxicating preparations of barley have been brewed at periods far anterior to that to which the memory of man runneth not to the contrary. Beer, happily for its cosmopolitan character as a respectable, sober, and every-day liquor, had no mythological god, under whose auspices the drinking of it formed a religious rite. The worshippers of Bacchus thought, no doubt, they were doing their devotions in proper, orthodox style, and probably felt as virtuous as though they were going to meeting in their Sunday clothes, when they drank themselves red in the face and purple in the nose with the juice of the divine wine ; whereas, the lovers of beer drank in the past, as they drink in the present, from no sense, of religious feeling, but simply to gratify a profound &n...

Sketches with Pan THE GOTHENBURG PORTRAIT GALLERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 17 April 1875

THE GOTHENBURG PORTRAIT GALLERY. ' The loss of the Gothenburg was in one respect a disaster unexampled in the history of Australia. There was never before a wreck tbat included so many men of well-known public position and high station in the public service, who, consequently, were well known, at any rate by name, far beyond the limits of the colony to which they belonged. The portraits we have selected for engraving are those of the most distinguished and best known men who have been lost by this sad catastrophe. For the particulars of their lives we subjoin we are indebted to the full and interesting obituary notices which appeared in the South Australian Register, THE HON. THOMAS REYNOLDS. This gentleman was an old South Australian colonist, and was engaged in some public capacity most of the time of his colonial career. He arrived in the colony in 1840, and for some time engaged' in retail business. Although previously taking part as a citizen in political matters, it was in 185...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

The last event we took note of was the 'Kruse Concert,' which was given in the Town-hall on the 10th of April. It resulted very successfully, and a good foundation was secured for tne fund needed for the expenses to be incurred in sending the talented lad to study the violin in the best school to be found in Germany. The notable event of that night was the performance by Mademoiselle Jenny Claus and Master John Kruse of H. Leonard's duo for two violins without accompaniment. That Mademoiselle Jenny Claus should have given her services to play this piece with young Kruse was a graceful condescension on her part, and the most authoritative recognition of his talent that could. have been given— for she belongs to high art only, and adorns it by the superior quality of her work. It was a fine perform ance, the, boy approving himself, by his well- finished and steady play, to be fit for association with an artist of acknowledged rank. We are glad to take notice of this event, also, on th...
