THE TOWN AND DISTRICT OF ARARAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 15 May 1875

THE TOWN AND DISTRICT OF ARARAT. The last of the series of railway extensions authorised by the Parliament of 1871 was completed from Ballarat to Ararat in   March, and to celebrate such an occurrence the members of the Ministry issued a large number of invitations amongst their friends in Melbourne, inviting them to a dejêuner to be laid at the Ararat station, so that with Moët and hock, saddles of mutton, jellies, and pasties, and with all sorts of fare calculated to make the   hearts of hungry travellers glad, the occasion should be marked as a red-letter day, not only for Ararat and the district, but for the colony generally. The 600 or 700 guests left the Spencer street Railway Station about 8 o'clock, and by 2 o'clock the first passenger train, firing salvoes as feu-de-joies, rolled up to Ararat with, its long row of carriages, and the expectant hungry faces of the ladies and gentlemen of the metropolis who   had come to a place which to ...

THE CHINESE INVASION AT COOKTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

THE CHINESE INVASION AT COOKTOWN. The correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald writes on April 25 asfollows, concerning theinliux of Chineseinto Cooktown, iu Northern Queensland : — The last few weeks in Cook town have been pregnant with events. The most important of any incident in the history of this port— the arrival of the Chinese immigrants direct from China in swarms — stands out prominently as the chief item of interest, and the possible cause of much future good or evil to the colony. This immigration has many, special features which distinguish it from any previous Mongolian rush iu colonial history. Cooktown is situated so near the great ports that empty out their surplus coolies into neighbouring countries, the facilities for reaching the gold-field are so unusual, theexpense is so comparatively Blight, that, apart from other considerations, it is small wonder that John Chinaman is hurrying here, with bis stick and baskets tilled with pots and pans, as fast as he can.

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. Whiting under date April 26, the Palmerston correspondent of J he Argus *o,ya of the Northern Territory 'that its prospects 'ere never brighter than at present, and that a more profitable netd for the employment of capital and labour is not to be found in Australia. That our produce of gold is not very considerable 1 am fully aware, but it must be remembered that the white Population of the territory does not number five hundred souls, or whom not more than one-third are engaged in mining or its concomitant operations. By the Claud Hamilton the bank is snipping 2,G7Goz. of gold, and there are some parcels in private Bands which will bring up the total to about 3.200oz. at least, representing the earnings of, say, 170 miners for nine weeks. Jteokoning the gold at £3 12a. per ounce, and allowing the outside nuure of £280 for interest upon capital invested in machinery, I nnd that 170 men earned £1,000 per week for the period of nine weeks over which my figures ...

THE FIRST FANCY BALL IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

THE FIRST FANCY BALL IN AUSTRALIA. The Sydney Morning Herald of May 19 says : — The first mayor's hall in Australia, although it took place more than 30 years ago, is noc likely to be forgotten for some years to come. It had the advantage of a most enthusiastic chronicler, who not only furnished a narrative of the interesting event in prone, hut also reported it in verae. This ball was given by Mr. J. R. Wilshire, who was mayor of Sydney in 1844, and a full, true, and poetical account thereof has been reprinted under the title of Gleanings from my Scrap-book, by Mr. John Rap, ' who appears in the quadruple character of reporter, poet, printer, aud bookbinder. His little book contains nearly 100 pages. Ic is a very fair specimen of amateur printing and bookbinding, and tbe poetry is at least equal to the theme. The author ' plays with syllables and sports in song' in such a way as toui ve a vivid description of colonial society at tbe time, as well as of the characters assumed, and o...

NEW SIGNALLING INSTRUMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

NEW SIGNALLING INSTRUMENT. Lieutenant Pabhott, of the New South Wales Volunteer En. gineers, has invented an instrument which he calls ' the ae ma- trope,' which promises to become very useful in army signalling, inasmuch as it is claimed for it that, under moderately favourable conditions of the atmosphere, messages may be transmitted with facility a distance of 50 miles. The instrument consists of an adaptation of and improvement on the heliotrope, invented by Gauss, the German mathematician, in 1821, and the helioetat of Captain Druminond, which was u»ed with great eucceaa in the triangulation of Great Britain. The sematrope consists of a mirror, the reflecting surface of which is an arc of 4 5 inchep, whose versed line is '01. The object of this curve is to meet the difficulty arising from the apparent motion of the eun, which is constantly. changing the direction of tbereilected r«ysfrom the sur. face'of the mirror. The effect of this curve is to disperse the rays to such an ex...

MINING ACCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

MINING' ACCIDENTS. The report of the chief inspector of mines, Mr. R. Brough Smyth, on tbe operation of the Mining Accidents Prevention Bill during the past year, has been presented to Parliament. The report bIiowb that 335 mining accidents occurred in Victoria during the year, SO of which proved fatal. Of tbeBe 43. or 47 7 per cent., were undoubtedly due to want of knowledge of mining, or to imprudence, temerity, neglect, or carelessness on the part of the sufferers. Fifty-two of tbe fatal accidents occurred to men engaged in quartz- mining, and 38 to persons employed in alluvial mining, 20 of the total number of fatal accidents occur ring on the surface, and 70 below the surface. Taking the mean number of quartz miners employed throughout tbe year, the deatbB are estimated at 3'40 per thousand, or one death to every 294 quartz miners, while the proportion as regards alluvial miners was one death to every 826 persons. Seventy-seven of the fatal accidents occurred to Europeans, and ...

MINING PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

MINING PROGRESS. A report on the progress of the geological survey of Victoria, by Mr. 11. Brough Smyth, secretary of the Mining department, was recently published by the Government. In it Mr. Smyth, touched upon the old subjects of the relation between tbe height; above the sea level at which auriferous lodes nngbt be found, and their comparative yields. There was, however, very little fresh information for him to give on the subjects, as the facts ' recorded so far in this colony reveal no relation between height above sea level and the, yield of gold, nor between the depth from the surface and the character of the stone discovered. There is, contrary to general opinion, nothing to show- that lodes become either richer or poorer in gold as they descend, and there is no Teiison, us far as is yet known, why a; lode 5,000ft. fioru the surface soil should be.either moie or less valu able than one found at a .quarter of that depth. Recently, however, there has been got together some ev...

ANNEXATION. OF NEW GUINEA. A.veht large and influential meeting of tbe inhabitants of tbe city of Sydney was held on the 11th May in the Sydney Exchange. The hall was completely crowded ; and among those present were moBt of tbe leading men connected with the trade and commerce of the city. The mayor, Mr. Benjamin Palmer, occupied the chair. The following resolutions were unanimously carried : — 'That, in the opinion of this meeting, tbe resources of the extensive island of New Guinea should not remain beyond the reach of commercial enterprise ; and as the inhabitants cannot much longer continue isolated from trading operations, the immediate occupation of tbe island by a civilised power is expedient, alike in the interests of humanity and commerce.' 'That Great Britain is the nation best fitted for the work of colonising New Guinea ; and that the annexation of the territory not yet occupied by a foreign power is desirable in the interest of the whole empire, as well as that of Her ...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

I would as soon have expected to hear a legally qualified medical practitioner singing the praises of an illiterate advertising quack as to see orthodox and educated clergy men swelling the ranks of the 'followers of the Yankees, Moody and Sankey. Doctors could hardly look their patients in the face, if, after attending them for many years, making them swallow buckets of physic and bushejs of pills, regulating their diet and limiting their amusements, they were to turn round and confess that they were altogether astray in their treatment, and that the two great advertising medicine men, Drs. Holloway and Cockle, with their patent pills for every, disease that flesh is heir to, must at last be called in. .But, all our colonial clergymen who are crying oxit for a revival of religion through the medium of these sensation lecturers are doing precisely the same thing. They have been attending to our souls as the doctors attend to our bodies., ~We{ have i swallowed their doctrines and tak...

AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1875. ENGLAND'S NEXT ANNEXATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1875. ENGLAND'S NEXT ANNEXATION. v .If there is one subject about which men of the most different political views and residents in all the various colonies of Australia are agreed at the present time, it is the desirableness of annexing New Guinea to the dominions of Her Majesty Queen Yiciobia. We have, in these colonies, long regarded the settlement of New Guinea by a colony of adventurers from Australia as an event that must happen sooner or later. And there is no doubt that to such spontaneous enterprise we might safely leave the task, with the certainty that at the suitable time it would be undertaken and accomplished, were it not that there is a danger that if it. were so left we might find that some other power had already established itself there, and that we had arrived a day too late. This is the peculiar condition attaching to the question of taking possession of New Guinea. The object with which the annexation is advocated is not so much acquisition as ...

FINE ARTS [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

' The new picture gallery recently erected at the rear of the Public Library was opened on May 22. The old' gallery was found to be inconveniently small, and to be in other respects ill-adapted for the exhibition of works of art, and the trustees, with some difficulty, induced the Govern ment to grant the necessary funds for a new gallery. This building has been specially designed for the purpose, and will afford accommodation sufficient for many years to come. Externally the building consists only of four bare walls, but the deficiency of architectural adornment is a matter of small importance, as ultimately, when the design is wholly carried out, this, gallery will be surrounded, on all sides by other buildings. The dimensions of the hall are 165ft. by 40ft., with a height of 37ft. to the centre of the roof. The walls give a superficial area of over 26,000 square feet. The building is lighted entirely from the top by means of skylights. . There is a double roof, and every care is ...
