SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

This is the dull season as regards the turf, there being nothing doing, nor will there be until the curtain rises once more at Hawkesbury on the 25th and 26th of August. But the 1st of June was a busy day as regards future events, as entries were then made for many of the most important events to come, such as the Melbourne Cup, the Champion Stakes, the Great Metropolitan Stakes at Sydney, the Grand Hawkesbury Handicap, besides two and three year old stakes. The entries were exceedingly numerous, and show a most healthy state of the turf, notwithstanding dull times. The weights for the Melbourne Cup, the Great Metropolitan, and the Hawkesbury Handicap have been published, and have given general satisfaction, Mr. Bar nard's particularly, and there has already been more betting than has been known at a similar period for some years previously. There are more horses in training than was ever the case before, and every prospect of next season being a very busy one. The Messrs. Chirnside...

THE LATE MR. ASPINALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

THE LATE MR. ASPINALL. The mail which arrived in Melbourne, May 29, brought intelli gence which was received with great regret in this colony and throughout Australia, in the item announcing the death of Mr. B. C. Aspinali, who died in England* on April 4, just, six days prior to the death of bis wife, which took place. at Emerald-hill on April 10. In giving a portrait of the deceased gentleman, we accompany it with the following notes upon the chief passages of his public career :— Mr. Butler Cole Aepiuall, who occupied a prominent position in this colony for many years, was born iu 1830, in Liverpool, being a son of the late Rev. James Aspinall, rector of Althorpe, Lancashire, and .previously officiating at Rochdale and Liverpool. The Aspinai Is. have long been respect ably connected with business circles . in Liverpool, aud two members of the family were mayors of that city. The Rev. James Aspinall was a large contributor to the periodical literature of his time, and his politica...

BURNING OF THE VICTORIA SUGAR WORKS, SANDRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

BURNING OF THE VICTORIA. SUGAR WORKS, SANDRTDGE. Shortly after half-past 1 o'clock on the morning of June the 8th, the Victoria Sugar Works, Sandridge, caught fire. The fire commenced in the top story, or loaf flror, of what is known as the sugar-house, apart from, but connected with, the factory. The goods stored in the house, however, : were of such an inflammable ^character,' that the flames spread with almost inconceivable rapidity, and speedily enveloped the entire building. The Sandridge, Melbourne, .arid; other fire brigades were on the spot as quickly as possible; , but the fire quicjf}£ attained such dimensions that little impression could be made upon it. The flames soon got complete mastery of the Bugar store and the boiling and drying room. The latter was built of bluestone, with slate roof, lined with wood, and the fire, which bad at first spread from tbe small stiore to the second story of the boiling and drying room, rapidly extended to the lower story and the third s...

CEREMONIES AT THE CHINESE JOSS-HOUSE, EMERALD-HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

CEREMONIES AT THE CHINES E JOSS-HOUSE, EMERALD-HILL. ' The Chinese Joss-house at Emerald-hill is well worth a visit, and if the time chosen is the occasion of some festival peculiar to the Mongolians, the visitor will see many curious things. Our sketch gives a view of the interior. The scene is a sort of shrine, of curious carved .wood and metal, hung round with paper lanterne, banners, escutcheons, and Btrips of paper. The pre vuiling colour is a dull red, and every article is inscribed with the queer Chinese characters which are the symbols of the written language. This shrine is the outer one of two, and the inner is the more sacred, containing the portrait of Buddha, flanked on one Bide by an ugly devil-like fellow called 'the strong man,' and on the other hand . by a demure-looking Chinese beauty, whose precise character and position could not be ascertained, though she was described by our interpreter as a 'nun.' Our sketch represents a portion of the ceremonies which were pe...

THE VICTORIAN MOUNTED POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

THE VICTORIAN MOUNTED POLICE FORCE. Oob engraving represents several members of the Mounted Police, a branch of the Victorian force which is most charac teristic of the country, and in the early days bore the great brunt of the work. The uniform shown is that used for active service, a dark blue jumper, white cord tights, napoleon boots, and regulation cap similar to that worn by the foot police, and the dress has been declared by competent military authorities who have visited the colony to compare favourably for usefulness, comfort, neatness, and soldierly appearance with any light cavalry uniform known. In fact, officers were so much struck, by it, that when they went, home they caused alterations. to be made in the dress of several cavalry regiments, with a view of making it more like the .uniform of our troopers. The only thing in which a change is desirable is the bat, which is hardly suited to our summer climate. It has been suggested that a light pith helmet, like that worn ...

sketches pen with ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

ADELAIDE. Adelaide, the capital of the neighbouring colony of South Australia, is most agreeably situate in the midst of a large and fertile plain, about six miles from the , eastern, shore of St. Vincent's Gulf. With a background formed by an altnoBt perfect semicircle of gently rising hills, known as the Mount Lofty Range, the prospect from the city, looking east and south, is one which gladdens the eye by its quiet beauty, and poeseBses a charm at whatever, season of the year it may be seen. There is no wearineas of the eye in gazing at it, the character of the miniature mountains is so varied. Here is an eminence clothed from its foot to its brow with densely wooded timber, and there is another oh which the expanse of verdure from base to top is hardly broken by a tree. Then, again, there are slopes dotted over in Bummer with the vivid green of teeming vineyards and luxuriant orchards, and standing out in pleasant relief at frequent intervals are handsome mansions, pretty villas...

MELBOURNE IN 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

MELBOURNE IN 1875. In comparing the view given of the capital of Victoria at the present time with that of the infant city of thirty-five years ago, we do not purpose to enter into any statistical description of its MELBOURNE IN 1875. MELBOURNE IN 1875. population, wealth, and extent. We merely ask the reader to go with us in imagination to the spot where Mr. Haydon stood in 1840 sketching the scattered cottages which were then sprinkled over the low hills of the site of Melbourne, and view tbe picture which is outspread before him. The spot is on the South Wharf, near the gigantic and mighty steam crane which has just been erected. Behind are the railways to Emerald-Hill' and Sandridge, and before uaare ;the extensive excavations in progress for the purpoae.of widening the basin of the river and giving' additional facilities^ an d;Bcpi5e .to the trade of the port. But before this large addition ^wj made to the width of the river, it wasalready very mubh. .wider .than it was when th...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

We follow, for the present, the fortunes of Mr. Lyster and his opera company, so as to complete our history of their transactions in Victoria up to the date at which this notice is written. The citizens of Ballarat having built a handsome and commodious hall, with a roomy and well-appointed stage, which they have called the Academy of Music (the founda- tion stone was laid by Madame Arabella Goddard, when she last visited Ballarat), the opening of the completed building was celebrated on the 7th June by the performance of " La Fille de Madame Angôt ;" the performers being   the members of Mr. Lyster's company, specially engaged   for the event. A series of 12 performances was then given, and it seemed to the visitor, who knew both, places, as if the Opera-house in Bourke-street, Melbourne, had been, for the while, transferred, with its band, chorus, principals, and scenery, to the Academy of Music in Lydiard-street,   Ballarat, opposite Craig's...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

Concerning out political world, we have nothing of an exciting nature to chronicle. There seems to be a sort of tacit understanding that no attempt shall bo made to oust the Ministry until it has submitted its financial scheme to the country, and as the budget speech will not be delivered until after the first week in July at the earliest, hon. members have laid themselves out to fill up the interval by airing their eloquence on every subject which presents itself. Thus, the Amending Land Bill was dis cussed for seven nights before the second reading was agreed to, although the division — 52 to 9 — shows that a very large majority had made up its mind to support it. The debate on this measure was certainly a curiosity in its way. Nearly every speaker expressed an opinion that bur present artificial system of alienating the public lands is a complete failure, that ' it demoralises Government and people alike, and does not create that yeomanry class it is intended to foster, and yet w...

AUSTRALIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1875. THE DULNESS OF COLONIAL POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1875. THE DULNESS OF COLONIAL POLITICS. A London paper (the Spectator) half complains of the perplexity and wearisomeness of colonial politics to English observers. It is unable to find ' any clearly marked ' boundary lines between political parties.' You cannot say in reference to any great test questions this man is a Liberal or that man is a Conservative, for although there are differences of opinion on political measures, these are not coincident with any divergency of principle. ' The ' forces of party government are maintained, but the ' motives of action are personal or traditional. The Ad ' ministration is simply the party of the 'ins,' the Opposition ' the party of the ' outs,' and each consists of the following 'of some influential personage, or of some loose alliance 'of independent politicians, or of some clique held together 'by a social bond.' The Opposition occasionally obtains a victory over the party in office, and a change of G overnment takes pl...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 10 July 1875

The doubt which was raised in people's minds by the conflicting accounts received of the success of ' The Shaughraun' in Sydney has. been settled in this city agree ably to the management of the Theatre Royal, by its very : satisfactory representation at that house. Nobody, indeed, expected in an Irish play to find anything greatly . different from Irish plays generally. But this one seems to be a good specimen of its class ; its characters are well defined, its situations are ingeniously contrived, and there is nothing redundant either in language or action. So much, indeed, can nearly always be expected of Mr. BoucioaultV plays, which, with all their disqualification of lack of originality and tbe absence of the higher literary merit, are invariably of a kind to keep the audience interested from beginning to end. And then, in connexion with this production, we have the return to us of Mr. Whoatleigh, who is one of those sterling actors of whom it is impossible not to wish there we...

A TERRIBLE POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

A TERRIBLE POSITION. The North Ooulburn Advertiser in a recent issue relates :— On Tuesday, as the mailman' of the line from Seymour to Rush worth was proceeding to the former place he overtook a swagman, who asked a question or two about the route he wished to pursue. The desired information was given, and the coach pursued its way. _ On the return next day, the driver and passengers were conscious of hearing screamB. The pas . sengers at once alighted, arid proceeded in the direction of the sound, which apparently proceeded from the vicinity of a burning tree. To their, horror, on apprdachiug the place, they saw a man under a fallen tree which was bluzing at the stem, within a yard or two of the poor wretch's head. By dint of great exertion he was rescued from his fearful position, and placed carefully in the coach. The driver recognised in the poor sufferer the swagman who had accosted him on the previous day. It would appear that he had camped close to a tree, which had apparent...
