CAPTIVITY FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

CAPTIVITY FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS. A strange case has lately occurred of the rescue of a French .boy from captivity amongst savage islanders for a space of 17 years. The Sydney Evening Htwn thus reports the circum stances :— 'Narcisse Pierre Ball a tier is the sou of a shoemaker of Bordeaux, and was employed in 1808 as a cabin-boy on board the ship St. Paul, hound from China to Australia, with 350 Chinese on board. The ship struck on a retf in tiie Louisida Group, and became a total wreck. All hands got on shore on an ' uninhabited inland, hut fears being felt by the European portion of the crew that the Chinese would eat them, the former left for h neighbouring island. They were there attacked by blacks, and the second officer, a sailor, and an apprentice were killed. The remainder of the party sailed buck in a boat which had been, paved from the ship to the island where the Chinese had been left. The Europeans did not remain there long. They comprised the captain, seven sailors, and c...

Sketches with Pencil YOUNG AUSTRALIA FELIX. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

_,___, ? ', ? _i YOUNG AUSTRALIA FELIX. Our artist has here given a sketch of a chubby youngster lying on the green sward of Australian park-lands, kicking up his heels in idle, contented enjoyment. The picture is wholly a fanciful and artistic one, but we can hardly help thinking that it is symbolical in some degree of thefortunate condition of Young Australia. In these well-to-do colonies the youth of the communities grows up, metaphorically speaking, 'in clover.' What will it grow to? It has easy conditions, many advantages, many opportunities beyond those which, fell to the lot of its parents. What use will it make of them 1 Will it have a character of its own, or will it be a mere reproduction of the parent type 1 It can hardly bo that. Some effect must be produced by the mixture of races, and the characteristics of English, Irish, Scotch, and other nationalities, as they fuse down and lose their dis tinctive traits, must give place to a compound form, which will perhaps be a s...

Sketches with Pen THE NEW GUINEA EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

, - i ~ T THE NEW GUINEA EXPEDITION. Mb. 'William Macleay, F.L.S., could not in any way have rendered the cauee of civilisation and of science greater service than by the course he has taken in fitting out at his own expense a well-appointed, well- manned expedition to the coasts of New Guinea. This magnificent island forms one of the few large spaces of terra incognita now remaining on the surface of the globe. It has for some time attracted great interest on the one side from men of science anxious to know more about its mysterious interior, its mountains, large rivers, rich vegetable productions, animal life, and. mineral products; and on the other from Australian politicians and the Australian people, who are anxious to see this rich island taken possession of by Great Britain, by that means preventing any other power from forming a settlement at our doors. Just at the precise moment suitable for advancing the one object and the other, Mr. W. Macleay announced his intention of f...

THE FIRE BRIGADES AT SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

THE FIRE BRIGADES AT SANDHURST. The procession of tbe fire brigades of tbe colony on Her Majesty's birthday, and their parade and competitive exercises on the following day, bid fair to become a permanent institution. Indeed, when the great importance and value are considered of tbe services which they render to -society in the security their exertions give against the destructive ravages of fire, there is every reason why they should receive the public notice and recognition which this demonstration is so well fitted to secure to them. The first two events of this kind took place in Mel bourne, and this year it was considered by the representatives of the brigades that the display should take place in one of the country towns whose brigades had figured so well and numerously in tbe parades at Melbourne. Accordingly, Sand burst was selected for holding the review this year, and it took place there with great 6clat on the evening of May 24. .The Argus reporter in bis account of the a...

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. The second session of the eighth Parliament of Victoria was opened on May 25 with the customary formalities. The Legis lative Council Chamber was filled with a brilliant assemblage, though the galleries were not overcrowded. The consular body was fully represented, and the scene presented by the chamber during the reading of the opening ppeech was a veiy attractive one. A few minutes before 2 o'clock His Excellency the Acting Governor 'leff. the Treasury-buildings, escorted by a troop of V.V. Light Horse, under tbe command, of Captain Bruce. Arrived in tbe Parliament-yard, a guard of honour composed of the Garrison Artillery, under Captain Stubhn, received him with presented arms, the Head-quarters band playing the National Anthem.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

On the proper day we celebrated Her Majesty's birthday, and that in a most royal and proper manner. His Ex cellency the Acting-Governor, Sir William Stawell, Chief Justice of the colony, had a large number of visitors on the occasion, a considerable percentage of whom, there is every reason to believe, attended in order to express their regard for him as a -private citizen and as a judge, altogether irrespective of his temporary gubernatorial rank. Besides the birthday levee, we had some other public performances on the 24ch ult. The day was a general holiday, and 15,000 or 20.000 residents of Melbourne availed themselves of the opportunity which the day afforded to. escape from the monotony of the daily labour in which they are engaged. A much larger number of country residents came to Melbourne, or visited other inland towns, their' travel being greatly facilitated by the railway cheapness which prevailed on the Government lines on the 24th. Chief among the city's attractions on t...

FOOTBALL IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 12 June 1875

FOOTBALL IN VICTORIA. We present our readers this month with an illustration of the, most popular sport, perhaps, in Victoria—namely, football. The     scene chosen by our artist is the Melbourne football ground, and, we may suppose ourselves looking on at a match being played between the chosen twenties of two crack clubs, the Carlton and Melbourne or Albert-park, these being supposed to be the three strongest in the colony, and, indeed, the records of past matches played between them show that there is little to choose, as regards the skill and strength of the players, between the three clubs. Football vies with cricket in the popularity it has acquired and the eagerness with which it is pursued, and the number of clubs in existence. Ten thousand spectators have frequently been gathered together at a match on the Melbourne ground, at Carlton, or in the Albert-park ; and not only is the game popular in and about the metropolis, it is carried out with equal...

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

The return of Miss Caroy to the Theatre Royal may be taken -to reprosont a change in the class of performances which have latoly beon given at this house. For the con fossod' ability of this young lady gives her so considerable an advantage ovor our othor ' juvenile' actresses, that her inclusion in the company permits the management to select many pieces which would not be otherwise possible, atid it only requires that a suflicient opportunity should be aQbrdod her of showing what she can really do to demonstrate the^ advantages which have been secured by again num bering her among the available resources of this theatre. At the termination of the engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Stone, Mr. Davies, the ventriloquist, commenced a month's engagement. Mr. Davies is clever, not only in the practice of his peculiar art, but in that sort of ability which keeps the attention of an audience alive from the beginning to the end of a performance. He is. a humpurist of an un usual kind — not that hi...

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

Music The music of the month has been decidedly mixed. From the strains of opera bouffe to the music of the Mass we have had a great variety. ' La Perichole' was produced . on the 1st of May, and it at once took hold upon public. favour. The audience did not care to inquire whether ' La Perichole' had been a real personage or not, and they were not particular about the pronunciation of her name ; the, playwright who sent the piece out here from London in sisted, amongst various stage directions, that the heroine should be called 'La Perry coal,' and with slight modifica tions, that has been the sound of her name ever since she made the acquaintance of the Melbourne audience.- But whether she were real at any time or was only invented in one form by Prosper . Me'rime'e, to be transfigured at another by MM. Meilhac and Halevy, was of no con sequence so soon as Miss Olara Thompson made her known in her present form, in which she appears as a frank and trustworthy woman who is true to h...

MELBOURNE THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO AND MELBOURNE TO-DAY. MELBOURNE IN 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

l^LBOURNE tramTY-FIVE YEARS AGO AND MELBOURNE TO-DAY. MELBOURNE IN 1840. We are indebted &'A|r. Samuel Mossman, an early settler in this colony, but now -resident in the mother country, for the kindness which placed at our disposal the drawing from which our artist has engraved the sketch of 'Melbourne in 1840.' In the note accompanying it Mr. Mossman informs us that it was executed by Mr. G. H. Haydon, a clever amateur artist, who visited the colony in that year. The view is taken from the south bank of the Yarra, looking across the basin below the Falls, where the coasting vessels anchored, and lighters laden from the ships in Hobson's Bay. landed their cargoes. Of the former four are shown in the illustration, the brig being the Henry, from HobartTown, the schooner from Lauucestoo, and the two cutters from ' Coraiya,' as Geelong was then called. The landing-place on the Melbourne side of the river was situated abreast of the schooner,' consisting of a small roughly constr...

Of course doctors and lawyers regret that the public should be so ill-advised as to attempt to get along without them, but $heir sorrow is tempered by the melancholy reflection that sooner or later they will be called in to repair the mischief caused by the use of the great universal specific, or the reading of the handy book on wills. Still we must do doctors and lawyers the justice of saying that they do not openly encourage the laity in their efforts to physic themselves or conduct their own cases in court. On the contrary, they solemnly warn t...
