Music and the Drama THE AUSTRIAN BAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

fjjxiisic im£r % grama THE AUSTRIAN BAND. The inhabitants oi Adelaide are occasionally blamed for aocordiog poor support to hi^h-class musical talent, and whether the charge holds gocd when tbe population is considered aa against that of larger cities, we are not inclined tossy. It is certain that a fair amount of patronage is accorded to anything very novel or EtrikiEg, and it is equally ceitaia tnac some talented performers have not met with the generous meed oE support that was fairly their due. While Kstten, for example, played to crowded houses the violinist Orso performed btfore comparatively empty benches. We might extend the list, bat these illustrations will suffice to 6how that the public are ficsie patrons, ar.d it is not invariably the highest worth that obtains the greatest recognition. Occasionally tbe public interest is excited by reports from tbe othtr colonies ot the doings of muuoftl celebrities, ana then good houses may be relied upen, at lea*t until tbe novelty w...

SEALED ENVELOPES. Turf, Field, and Farm. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

SEALED ENVELOPES. The methods of foreign problem tourneys have keen a sealed book to us. We had supposed that -when the conditions ot a tourney required contributions to be sent in arjonymGuely, and the name of each con tributor to be carefully sealed up ia an envelope, not to be -opened until after iho award, it was intended that the names thould remain unknown until that time, and that the scheme was considered essential to entire fairness. Recent ex perience with eminent foreign composers . ?who have been accustomed to enter the great problem competitions abroad has con Tinced us thathowever uniformly the sealed envelope plan has been adopted it has there beeu a sham. In old times, when rules ?were made to be observed, a competitor dared not communicate with the judges or the committee. We believe it was Von Bilow who first ventured in a frreat English tourney to infringe upon the secret of his envelope in this -way. The ifidignant course of the judce in that case, aud tlie conde...

When the day appointed fer the. opening of [the State Trial arrived* the interest was intense and nearly universal. In the City, business seemed to have stopped suddenly, like a-£ock that has run dewn. From an early fasur two living«urr ents set in opposite directions, one towards G'ConnelTs house in Merrion-square, from which a civic procession accompanied'the Traveners,the other to the fourcourts, where the trial was '-to'take place. Every warehouse, every office, every workshop, contributed to swell these . -agitated streams. In the great hall of the courts it had become necessary to fence the entrance to the Queen's Bench with barriers of solid oak, and here only the Traversers were .permitted to pass. The eager crowd of their friends strained ' against the barrier for the chance of a glance within, or flowed out along the quays on both sides of the rive...

She warns me (quite needlessly) to keep the secret — and sends me a copy of Father Benwell's letter : — ' Dear Madam — Mr.' Romayne can read nothing that diverts bis attention from his preparation for the priesthood, or that recalls past associations with errors which he has renounced for ever.

THE BOEMA CONCERTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

THE B0EM.A CONCERT3. Tbe third of tbe series of Boema concerts, whioh took place at Garner's Theatre on Friday April 22, was more largely attended than either of tbe previous ones. The programme included several gems that were rendered in a style which evoked the enthusiasm of every one presets. Madame Boema exhibited great artistic skill in her rendition of the famous 'Jewel Song ' from Faust, tor which she was impera tively encored, and responded by repeating the last portion. Sho afterwards appeared with Signor Coy in the gtsnd duo, 'Parigi o eara,' from Traviata, whioh was splendidly inter preted and loudly applauded. In the final num ber on the programme, the ' Miserere,' from Trovatcre, she was assisted by Signor Coy and a number of gentlemen amateurs, who essayed (and somewhat inefficiently) to render the chorus. Madams Boema's dramatic power and highly finished vocalisation were greatly admired, and Signor Ooy chared ia tbe honors of the recall that followed. Signora Palma s...

THE COST AND CONDITION OF OUR NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

THE COST AND CONDITION OF OUR NAVY. The British naval estimates for the year teginnirjg April 1, 1881, appear to have been framed, according to the formula for Queen's speeches made and provided, with a due regard to efficiency as well as economy. The advent of a Liberal Go vernment is 'generally disliked by the service because their policy has become synonymous with reduction of expenditure ; and the naval service had especial reasons to dread their resumption of oftice, re membering the unsparing reductions which Mr. Childers and his coadjutor, Mr. Baxter, made in 1870 and succeeding years, and the complaint of the Tories when they took office in 1874 that the service had been starved and that England had only an efficient fleet on paper. Tritna facie a board composed of such men as Sir Astley Cooper Key, Lord John Hay, and Mr. Brassey, with Mr. Trevelyan for Ciancial secretary, is not likely to go to the extremes either of parsi mony or of lavish outlay ; and consequently we find...

THE MARQUIS DE RAY'S COLONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

THE MARQUIS DE R A.Y 'S COLONISTS. Recent telegrams from Sydney announced the arrival there of the remnant of the ' Maiquis de Ray's colonists.' There is a touch of irony in using the term colonist in such a connection, for these hapless pioneers did not get beyond the earliest stage of settlement. They may rather be regarded as .the human adjuncts of a wild exploration set afoot without any definite conception of the risks to be en countered or the hardships to be endured. Beyond doubt they fared badly at the hands of all concerned in the launching of the Italian expedition to New Ireland. The only per sons who did aught to redeem the enter prise from absolute fatuity were the very men on whom descended a blow which prostrated them alike in body and spirit. No blame is laid to their charge. As set tlers they had begun to surmount obstacles the formidable nature of which had been pointed out over and over again. Unde terred by the uninviting picture presented to them of- bygone effo...

OUR GOLD DEPOSITS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

OUR GOLD DEPOSITS. TO THH EDITOR. Sir — Matters in connection with gold mining in the colony hare been rather quiet of late, probably on acoouut of the elections absorbing so large an amount of public attention. How ever, though but little hes appeared in the press for some weeks past, a certain amount of in terest has bees excited throughout the country, wbioh it may be hoped will result in something tangible and profitable. I have heard of gold naviug been lound in several localities where I was not before aware of its existence, and I am more ahd moie oonvi&ced that the expenditure of a moderate amount of capital would lead to raulta that would give a wonderful impetus to gold mining in South Australia. We hope toon to make a fresh move io connection with the Gold Mining Association, which we trust will re ceive a little more support than has as yet beea awarded to it. A few donations from our wealthy colonists, eay of £28 to £50 each, would be a great help to the associa...
