Amusements. THE OPERA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 May 1874
Amusements. TIIE OPERA. The season at the Princess' Opera House .is now far advanced, but the management have announced that they are prepared to issue tickets for six operas and as the season closes on the 12th mat.," those of the community who can appreciate music should take advantage of this offer.: The gem of the season has been Halevy's " La Juveo," but we notice that Rossini'sa grand opera " Semiramide" was subse. puntly produced, and drew crowded houses. Without any exception.-no opera has. been produced on the Mel bourne boards- which can approach "La Juive," either in respect to the miae en scene, the orchestra, the chourses or the ballet accompainments. The dresrse and scenery are simply mnagni ficent, and the effect produced has added another leaf to the laurels of the manage ment. The style of the composer is a very peculiar one. The music itself would most forcibly have told the story, had no words been written, and when to this- is added the fine acting of the whole o...

The building, which is a credit to the education department, is capable -ofaceommodating 1250 children, but will for the present be worked with 1000.

LECTURE ON, LIVINGSTONE'S.. TRAVELS AND ADVENTURES. The announcement that Livingstone'i Travels and Adventures were to be illus. tra:ed at the Mechanic's Instittite,lBruns. wick, on Tuesday last, drew'together' a large number of the residents of, allages. The views were painted on glass by the. lRev. W. S. Garner, and were exhibited by the aid of the lime light, which has peou* liar qualities for this purpose.; Some of: the scenes were much superior to others, the artist evidently excelling in .natural history. A short description was given with each, following the great explorer and missionary during the first sixteen years of his life in Africa. It was an nounced that a second series of views was in preparation, and would, bring up_ the discoveries of Stanley and Livingtoneto the present time. The proceeds of the lecture were in aid of the free library building fund.
WESLEY CHURCH, CARLTON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 May 1874
WESLEY CIHURCH, CARLTON. A most impressive sermon was delivered in this church, on Sunday last, by the Rev. Mr. Usher. The rev. gentleman selected as his text the 49th verse of the Br. chap. St. John, and drew a most truthful and touching picture of the state of the rising generation, urging upon the heads of families in the congregation the necessity that devolved upon them of doing all .n their power to promote and inculcate strict principels of morality in the young. We thoroughly agree with every word of the rev. gentleman's dis. course, and welcome him to' the district, fooling assured that should he favor us with a few'more such essen. tially practical lessons, his advent will be for good,
NEW WATER MAIN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 May 1874
NEW WATER MAIN. The layinr down of the pipes for the. new Water Main from Preston via Bruns. iiok. and North Melbourne has again commenced, and will soon effect a junc tion with the WVilliamstown main. About 50 men are busily engaged in laying down the pipes-taking them up Peel street, Hothani, as far as the Flagstaff Gardens, where they will branch off to the westward. When this is completed it is to be hoped the water supply during the next summer will be equal to all the re. quirements.
EXPENDITURE OF THE HOTHAM LOAN FUND. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 May 1874
EXPIENDITURE OF THE IIOTTHA1 LOAN FUND. Sir-Thi thanks of every liberal and honest minded ratepayer are duo to you for having in your lastissue drawn atten tion to the very unsatisfactory present financial position of the Council, conse quent upon the fact as you very properly state "that certain Councillors first tacitly sanctioned extra expenditure in paving and flagging the footpaths of certain stroeets, whilst for no valid reason, up to this moment, they have opposed tim collec tion of one half the cost of effecting such pavement and flagging." This too they have done in utter defiance of law and usage, as I am informed on the best authority that the rich City Council, as well as all the suburban Councils, without exception, insist upon the collection of half the cost, as by law provided, from the owners of property abutting on the foot paths thus improved. The wisdom of such a course is at once apparent, as it enables the Council to improve the foot paths exactly to double the ...

NEW BANKS IN NORTH MEL. hOUatNE. We observeo thatthe English, Scottish, and Australian Chartered Blank has opened a branch at the northern end of Elizabeth street, at the intersection of the, Flemington and Sydney roads, and directly opposite the [lay Market.
