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

Miss Amy Stone — or Mrs. Stone, whichever you should be inclined to prefer — appeared at the Theatre Royal in 'Cigarette,' a string of situations; in the 'Pearl of Savoy,' a bundle of dramatic platitudes, intermixed with impossibilities; in the ' Serious Family,' as Mrs. Ormsby Delmaine, to which she was altogether unequal; in 'Miralda,' a drama which set one wondering at the excessively imperfect taste which could ever make such a play acceptable any where ; in the 'Hidden Hand,' apiece of dramatic composition which sets one wondering if the dramatic art really is the lost art they say it is ; and in ' Led Astray,' which is the Boucicaultian version of the French play of ' La Tentation,' which Mr. LyBter gave us some months ago. It is possible Miss Stone may be a great actress, and it may be that the reason why we have not discovered her greatness is that she has appeared in plays which do not give her an opportunity of exhibiting her greatness to the best advantage. If, however, s...

Sketches with Pencil THE VINTAGE IN VICTORIA : THE HON. J. S. JOHNSTON'S VINEYARD AT SUNBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

THE VINTAGE IN VICTORIA : THE HON. J. S. JOHNSTON'S VINEYARD AT SUNBURY. Amongst the secondary industries pursued in Victoria — taking mining and agriculture as tho primary ones — none have a more hopeful prospect for the future than the vine culture. This favourable position has been materially aided by the recognition which Victorian wineshave from time to time received at the hands of European experts, and in connexion with this it is right to refer to the strong terms of approval which were obtained from the jury upon wines at the Vienna Exhibition by the quality of many of the samples of Australian wine submitted to inspection. Although it may be quite true, as was suggested in the jurors' report, that Australian wines will have mainly to depend upon Australian markets for their consumption, there is no doubt that their position there willbo substantially improved by the manner in which they have held their own when exposed to the competition of some of the choice wines of Euro...

THE MELANESIAN MISSION STATION, NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

THE MELANESIAN MISSION STATION, NORFOLK ISLAND. Tbe sketch on another page, represents a prominent portion of the MelancsianMission Station at Norfolk Island, taken from one of the photographs which the Rev. Mr. Codrington, the principal has occupied some moments of leieuie in producing. It represents one of the mission houses in which the South Sea Island boys and their teachers are lodged. The station consists of three or four such buildings, with a fine schoolroom and a church, which is a comparatively imposing edifice. All the structures are of wood, but they have a neat and pleasant aspect, and clustering creepers, with the surrounding semi-tropical growths, add greatly to the charm of their appearance. There is a good road to the station from Sydney Bay, and along its course may be seen some* of the moat picturesque views' to be obtained' in this beautiful island. The line of route is over undulating country, sometimes' through groves of the magnificent Norfolk Island pine, pa...

OUR LOCAL PRIMA DONNAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

OUR LOCAL PRIMA DONNAS. We present in this number the portraits of Miss Alice May (Mrs. G. B. Allen), Miss Clara Thompson (Mrs. H. Bracy), and Miss Winston (Mrs. Bell), three ladies who take the leading position on the lyrico-dramatic stage of the colonies. Two of them are essentially colonial in their professional career, while the third, although only a comparatively recent arrival, has. already made for herself a position which her undoubted merits will enable her both to hold and to improve. We give some particulars of each, which will be found interesting : — MISS ALICE MAT, ? Known in private as the wife of Mr. G. B. Allen, the capable manager and conductor of the Allen Opera Company, is a native of Yorkshire, and was musically .disposed from her infancy. When quite a girl she was sent to study the elocution of the lyric art under Mrs. Wood, whom the. musical world, perhaps, knows better as Miss Paton, the original Agatha of 'Der Freischutz.' During this course of instruction ...

THE LADIES' COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

THE LADIES' COLLEGE. . The Ladies' College, the opening of which we noticed in a former number, has been founded by the Presbyterian Church of Victoria, with the view of supplying a want which has long been felt, and giving to the daughters of our colonists as high an education as their sons are receiving at such institutions as the Scotch College, the Grammar School, and the Wesley College. The. Rev. George Tait, minister at South Yarra, was appointed principal at the meeting of the General Assembly in November, and arrangements for opening the college at the beginning of 1875 were at once begun. Professor Pearson, who was intimately connected with the movement in England for the higher culture of women, which has proved so successful, accepted the head mastership of the college. This appointment, and others -which were made soon after, gave the public a guarantee that the institution would be conducted in a thoroughly liberal and unsectarian way, and attain the object aimed at by ...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

The re-opening of Parliament being near at hand, it might reasonably have been expected that ere this time some little agitation in matters political would have been perceptible. But everything is as dull as can be. In the absence of any specially exciting cause for dis turbance, the constituencies would seem to have gone to sleep. It being generally understood that in the next sesBi on there will be an attempt to introduce an important change in our fiscal system, the newspapers have been die cussing the principles of taxation, and particularly the merits of a land tax. That some means should be devised to saddle property with a larger share of our publio burthens than it has yet borne nearly all are agreed ; but there is a wide difference of opinion as to how this should be done. Most people readily assent to the ? propriety of imposing some kind of tax on real property, but whereas moderate people would tax all property save only so much as a man may use towards making out a livi...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1875. IMMIGRATION AND POPULATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1875. IMMIGRATION AND POPULATION. There is strong reason to believe that in the race of progress between the various Australian colonies the victory must rest with the one that adds most rapidly to its popu lation by immigration. There is no other factor of a nation's growth by which its progress can be estimated so surely as by its increase of population. Increase of popu lation means increase of the value of existing property and increase of the amount of property held by the community. It means an additional number of producers of wealth, consumers of products, sellers and buyers, workers and employers, and a proportionately increased rapidity of the development of the resources of the colony. Doubtless, without any attempt to hasten it by artificial means, this result would be reached in time by the natural increase of population, by the excess of births over deaths. The difference is that by this means the same result will only be reached by posterity, while b...

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

When the curtain falls at Rand wick the flat-racing season may be said to have terminated, and since the A. J.C. Autumn Meeting there has literally been nothing doing, nor will there be, with the exception of cross-country meetings, until the bell rings once more at Hawkesbury, in August, to usher in the next spring campaign. The entries for the Two and Three Year Old Stakes for next season have been most satisfactory, and some first-class youngsters are coming forward. Several well-bred ones have been purchased at Sydney for this side by Mr. S. Gardiner and others, and the latter gentleman offered Mr. Town 2,000 guineas for the sire Maribyrnong, which was declined. The Victoria Racing Club has issued its programme for next season. The principal feature on it is a Champion Race of three miles, with a sweepstakes of 25 sovs., to which the large sum of 1,500 sovs. is added by the club. There is a condition whereby 71b. is allowed to all horses foaled north of the line. The added money...

Nearly all the seaport towns and cities of New Zealand are picturesquely situated, and Dunedin is no exception to the rule. Indeed, there is no aspect of it which is otherwise than beautiful ; whether you approach it from Port Chalmers by land or sea. In toe former case, the first glimpse you obtain of it is from a great elevation, looking down upon a narrow valley, flanked by lofty hills ; and there, in the far distance, at the extremity of this green vale, and on the edge of a sheet of shining water, diminished to the size of a toy-town, stands the prosperous capital of Otago, with a few prominent buildings, like the new First Church, the Hospital, and the University, forming the moBt conspicuous features in the group of buildings. But more striking is the view of the city from the estuary, as the steamer rounds a promontory and abruptly discloses what proves to most visitors a pleasing surprise. F...

THE LATE MR. WILSON GRAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

THE LATE MR. WILSON GRAY. The death of Mr. Wilson Gray was felt as a great public loss in New Zealand, and although he had been absent from this colony for many years, it was felt in a very similar way in Victoria. Mr. Wilson Gray had laboured in New Zealand for many years in the discharge of important judicial duties, and by the way he had fulfilled them and by the general charm and sweet* ness of his character he had gained the cordial esteem of the community. But the best and most energetic years of his life were spent in Victoria, and were spent 'amongst circumstances well adapted to evoke the zeal and devotion which were such predominant elements in his character. There is something in' the position of a judge which makes self-suppression a duty, and .tbe more conscientiously a judge discharges the duties of his office, the more closely must a great part of the warm sympathies and feelings of the man be concealed from all but a narrow circle of intimate friends. But it was not ...

£72 ,^ &_^ ?*** ^ ^T-g--^.-^ ^~ ^ ^ «g* ^y *y ^c*«^ & ^ &z t& j^^tv *** &f*sr |ffw Ix is impossible to deny that of late years there has been a decided tendency towards the amalgamation of the sexes with resgard to employments, and that the cause of woman's rights, as the struggle of woman to be allowed to occupy the position hitherto held by men is called, has made immense strides within the present generation. If there is no natural reason to prevent women from acting as men, there can be none to prevent men from being com pelled to accept the places that their wipes vacate. If, for instance, one lawyer marries another, and the female member of the firm developes business instincts of such a nature as to make it conducive to both their interests that she should be the bread-winner, it becomes essential that the husband should take the duties that she now per forms upon himself, and look after the affairs of the house. The idea is not altoget...
