RAVAGES OF MEASLES AT FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

EAVAGES OF MEASLES AT FIJI. We take the following from the Fiji Times /—The worst of the pestilence, that for want of a better name has been called measles appears to have nearly run its course through the Eastern Group, and the death-rate is awful. It is estimated that when all the returns are in from the native teachers, of whom there is at least one in every town throughout Lau, fully one-third or more of the natives have been swept away by this disease. Vanua Balavu has lost 334, Lakeba up to the present about 130,. of which 104 are in Tubou alone, the other towns being as yet only slightly infected ; Kabara is reported to have lost 81, which is three-fourths of the population ; on Komo about one-half are dead, and on Tuvuca, Nayau, Moce, and Ono the disease is in full swing and a great many dead,- but as yet there have no reliable accounts reached Loma Loma. Moala has lost 184, 'Matuku 110, and Totoya53. but from the last accounts the disease appears to have run itself out, and...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

'The Siiaughratjn' had a fairly successful career at the Theatre Royal, but tho flimsy comedy-drama of 'Sam,' which succeeded it, ran but a week — quite as long, however, as it deserved to run. It is one of those weak American plays of much pretence and no substance, which, although much relished by American people, and having therefore an enduring popularity in tho country of their birth, only excite astonishment out of it that so little of the true element of dramatic excellence can be made to go so long a way. in some, parts of the world. As a farce in one act, it migHt -have served its purpose well enough', but rolled out into the thin expanse of five acts it became' wearisome. Besides,* Dundrearys are used up — played out, in fact — done to death, hackneyed, worn, and therefore wearisome. And even with; the modification imparted by an American colouring they are uninteresting, notwithstanding that, in this instance, there was the recommendation of the leading part being played ...

Fine ARTS NEW PICTURE BY M. VON GUERARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

NEW PICTURE BY M. VON GUERARD. A large picture which has just been executed by M. von Guerard for a Victorian who is residing in England, and who wished to have a landscape painting which should exhibit some of the most characteristic features of the scenery of the colony under its most primitive aspects, is certainly one of the best works which this artist has produced, and indicates 'a new departure ' in the treatment both of foliage and of clouds. Jn the transparency of his atmospheres, in the portrayal of distant mountain ranges, and in giving the effect of vastness of area to great stretches of flat country, M. von Guerard has always been particularly successful ; but we have sometimes had to regret the uniformity, amounting now and then to monotony, of the trees in the foreground. No such defect interferes with the pleasure which the spectator receives from the landscape under notice, where the cherry-tree, the box, the sheoak, the peppermint, and the white and red gum impart ...

YARRA IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

YARRA IMPROVEMENTS. The trade of the port of Melbourne, inwards and outwards, amounts to almost a million and a half tons per annum, and naturally requires a good deal of wharf accommodation. The wharf space now available is sufficient for all requirements except during the wool season, from November to March, when ships have sometimes to wait for bertbB. At Sandridge there are two wooden piers' running far into the bay, at which the largest ships can lie to discharge and load. One of these is the property of and is worked by the Hobson's Bay and Suburban United Railway Company, and does a great deal of business in a very expeditious manner. A 1,000 tons ship has been discharged in a day at this pier, and her cargo carried to'Melbourne. The other Sandridge pier is connected with the city by three miles of a good road, and at it, too,. a great deal of business is done. At Williamstown, eight miles from the city, there are three Govern ment piers, worked in connexion with 800 miles of...

A CHINESE MORTUARY CHAPEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

A CHINESE MORTUARY CHAPEL. In' connexion with the Chinese Joss-house at Emerald-hill, a sketch of which was given last month, is a subsidiary shrine in a building which may be described as a mortuary chapel. The interior of the shrine is the subject of our engraving this month. Our Mongolian population regulate their social customs by laws of their own which are beyond the ken of our legislators, and while complying, a3arule, with the law of the land, they have to obey minor ordinances enforced by a system of police of which we know nothing. The name and relationship and date of birth of every Chinaman who comes into Victoria are inscribed in a registry- book kept in the Joss-houee, and every death is added to the registry as soon as the fact of decease is known. As each death is entered, a copy of the registry is inscribed (of course in Chinese characters) on a little wooden tablet about four or five inches long, by an inch and a half wide, and this tablet is placed on a frame at t...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

Music in Melbourne during the last month has been principally in the hands of Mr. G. B. Allen and the various people under his control as musical director. Such works as the 'Juily of Killarney,' ' The Bohemian Girl,' 'The Grand Duchess,' 'The Rose of Castile,' 'Jaarbe Bleue ;' 'Fra Diavolo,' and 'La Fille de Madame Angot ' have been given by Mr. Allen's original company, with Miss Alice May as prima donna, since the date of our last publication, and the reader may accept this as an assured fact that in each of these (with the exception of Lecoq's work, in which Miss May did not perform), the English prima donna achieved solid success by fairly legitimate means. But she went beyond the level of operatic per formance as understood in connexion with the works above named. Her Marguerite, iu Gounod's 'Faust,' was *a performance of a good stamp, and belonging to a higher 'range of art work than any in which she had before appeared in Melbourne. Miss May commenced her studies of operatic...

AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1875. VICTORIAN FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

'1^ ? ^1' SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1875. VICTORIAN FINANCE. No more important financial statement was ever made in Victoria than that laid before the Assembly on July 15 by the Treasurer, Mr. Service. It was important on account of the expectations which it had to meet, the solution it had to supply , to so many serious problems, and also from the fact that it' would, if accepted, probably markaturning-pointinthepolicy of the country. Great doubt was entertained and despond* ency felt regarding what was believed to be a failing state of revenue, and what was known to be a depressed condition of trade. Great interest existed as to the means by which the Government contemplated confronting this state of things. Then, in the political and commercial worlds alike, a conviction had grown up that it was time for the country to reconsider its fiscal policy, with the view of removing some of the burdens on its trade, and also of conforming its tariff in some degree to the tariffs in force in the...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

These are only two cross-country meetings to report since our last issue, the first at Kensington-park, a su burban meeting lately established, which was held on Separation Day, July 1, a public holiday. The weather was magnificent, the attendance very numerous, and the racing first-class. The steeplechase, indeed, was one of the best ever witnessed, the horses being together all the way, the winner being a Western District bred horse, Postboy, by Panic. Kensington-park promises to become a popular resort. The Geelong Winter Steeplechase Meeting was brought off very successfully on the 17th July. There was a large exodus from Melbourne of sporting folk, who went down by special ; but the Geelongese do not take very kindly to the turf, and the local visitors were not nu merous. The sport was only middling, and owing to the wetness of the ground most of the hories came to grief from slipping. The Hurdle Race was won by Larrikin by a fluke, the horse that came in first by a long way, W...

We owe to Mr. Gully's pencil a view of one of tho giant peaks which stand in lofty rugged grandeur around the wonderful inlet of Milford Sound, New Zealand. 'A Tourist,' writing of this magnificent scene in TJie Aus tralasian some months ago, said in very graphic language : — ' One by one distant peaks appear shining above the mist in the glorious morning sunlight. But the channel is in deep .gloom, bounded by sheer precipices; .thousands of feet in height.

Sketches with Pen THE NEW GOVERNMENT-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

i i ~ ' ~' ill THE NEW GOVERNMENT-HOUSE. The new Government-bouse, now in course of erection in the Government Domain, is rapidly approaching completion, and will be ready for occupation by the end of the year. The Bite is one admirably adapted for a Vice-regal- residence, and was reserved for this purpose so far back as the time of Governor Latrobe, who recognised its suitability. Situated on the crown of the hill, tho building overlooks the: city, and becomes a prominent landmark from all points, and whilst in the immediate vicinity of tho town, mny yet, from the nature of its position and the face that it is surrounded by the Botanical-gardens and the Domain, be regarded as comparatively isolated. Competitive designs for a Vice-regal residence were called, for some years ago, by Mr. Hervey, when Minister of Public Works. The premium was awarded, .but the design was not carried out. Subsequently, in 1870, plans were prepared by tbo Publio Works deportment, by the instructions of M...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

There is no branch of history more neglected, and none that would excite more interest in the mind of a youthful student, than that relating to the games and amusements of the children of the period under review. We know not how the boys and girls of ancient Greece and Rome beguiled the hours between the close of school and bed- time. They may have had football, or kites, or hop scotch. Homer, in his youth, may have trundled a hoop, or have played marbles for keeps,, and Virgil have been a mighty boy at prisoner's base or fly the garter. That they had games there* can be no doubt. They were boys, and could not exist without them ; but the nature of them is among the lost secrets of history. It is only in such incidental notices' of the young ancients as that wherein it is stated that a number of little children came and mocked Elisha, and called him 'Bald head,' and got torn up by two Bhe-bears, to the number of 42, that we hear of the existence of children in those far-away days.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

On Thursday, the 15th tilt. , the Treasurer brought for ward his long-expected budget. It had been well known for a long time previously that some alteration was to be made in the incidence of taxation, and that the ridiculous tariff from which the trade of the colony has been suffering for some years past was to undergo a more or less exten sive reform. When, therefore, Mr. Service rose to unfold his scheme to the House, every seat set apart for strangers was occupied, and many exhibited their interest by standing during the two hours and a half which the hon. gentleman occupied in delivering his speech. He dealt firBt with the 'revenue and expenditure of the past year. It appears that the estimated revenue for the financial year that closes on the 30th June was £4,259,135. The receipts, however, only amounted to £4,132,118, showing a comparative de ficiency of £127,017. The expenditure was estimated to reach £4,478,0H0, while the amount actually disbursed was only £4,325,277, or £...

MURDER OF A TELEGRAPH MASTER BY THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 7 August 1875

MURDER OF A TELEGRAPH MASTER BY THE BLACKS. The South Australian Register of July 14 reports :— We regret to learn that another murderous affray has to be reco'rded in connexion with the Port Darwin telegraph line. About three weeks ago Mr. C. H. Johnston, the station-master at Daly Waters, telegraphed for permission to proceed to the Roper River, in order to look after some Government horses and cattle which were known to be straying in that locality. The necessary sanction having been given, he started in company with Messrs. Daer and Kickards, and one or two blacks. Nothing more was heard of the party until Tuesday, July 13, when Messrs. Daer and Kickards returned to Daly Waters with the report that they had been attacked by the natives, and that Mr: Johnston bad been murdered. It appears from the messages which we publish below that the attack was made on the 29th of June, Mr. Johnston being speared on the left side of the abdomen. Situated as they were, his companions could do ...
