SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

0& TL^tsL^ yr^n *£N^j\l We are just emerging from the dull period of the year, and before another month has passed away the Hawkesbury and Sydney meetings, which open the regular flat-race season, will have come off. A great many visitors from this colony have already taken wing for Sydney, and horses also, and the Victorian ring will be strongly represented. There has been a good deal of wagering on the principal spring events, and the bookmakers have written down many transactions in their books. Sir Hercules Robinson's Kingsborough, four years old, who is in the Great Metro politan Stakes, at 8st. 101b., has been the winter favourite for that event, as has Imperial, the winner of the lost Sydney Gold Cup, been for the Melbourne Cup, for which he is weighted at 8st. 41b. Imperial, indeed, is regarded as 'a moral' for the latter event — a mere ques tion of health. Dilke, a Tasmanian-bred horse, four years old, who is in ' the Cup,' at 6st. 21b., has been backed to win a lar...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

There have been during the last month two or three musical events of sufficient importance to claim extended notice at our hands ; and, for lack of topics of greater interest, they might have had prominence given to them, but the advent of the great Hungarian singer, lima de Murska, has thrown all other subjects in connexion with music entirely into the shade. She arrived here from San Francisco, vid Sydney, on the 2nd of August. On the night of the 3rd she. was treated to a grand serenade at her hotel by the members of the Melbourne German Lieder tafel, and on the 9th of August she appeared for the first time before the Melbourne audience at her opening concert in the Town-hall. From that time to this her name has been on every tongue in public and in private, and, to use a single word which by recent custom- is accepted as expreanivfi of a Tyiripiy-ftxtonrimi— mQnningj— who hnaranflfifi the greatest 'sensation' here that ever attended the appearance of any public singer.

Wilson's Promontory, the most southern point of land in Victoria, is also the most southern point of the great Australian continent. It is a worthy bulwark against the mighty mass of waters which stretches to the. south, only broken by the island of Tasmania, across Bass's Straits. The promontory is a great granite peninsula, 24 miles long by 9 miles in width, almost severed from the mainland by the deep indentation of Corner Inlet, but joined by a narrow low sandy isthmus. It contains several mountains upwards of 2,500ft. high, such as Mount Latrobe and Mount Wilson, and these hills and the lower ground are almost wholly covered with timber. The lighthouse on the ...

Sketches with Pen MADAME RISTORI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

iji ? ^__ ? ? ^ — — H-—— ? ZZZIZZ'-i MADAME RISTORI. This great Italian actress, who has no peer, and whose present visit to Australia is an event of notable significance, was born at Cividale, in Friuli, in 1821. Her early life was an experience of many difficulties, for her parents were of humble social position, her father being an obscure actor, who, like many others of his calling, had to fight the battle of life against odds. She herself was brought up to the stage from her earliest infancy, and made her first appearance when, only two years old. Ac the oro of four she had already acquired some colebrity in the representa tion of child characters, and when only ten sho sustained the part of Francesca da Rimini; in the tragedy known by that title. She was tall for her age, and possessed that indescribable grace which is allotted to so few actresses, but which through her long career has constituted one of the greatest charms of her acting. An entire love of her art, and a stron...

THE TOWN OF LYTTELTON, NEW ZEALAND. Ltxtelton is the port of Chriatcburch, and one of the three harbours in the Province of Canterbury to* which shipping at present resort;, the others being Timaru, in the southern part of the province, and Akdroa, in Banks's Peninsula. The' town is built near the head of the inlet to which the' name' of Fort Cooper has been given, not far from where the little river , Avon, which comes from the Canterbury Plains and flows through Christchurch, debouches. It was named after Lord Lyttelton, one of the original founders of the Canterbury Asso ciation, while the name of GodleyHead — in honour of the first Resident Superintendent of the settlement — was given to the headland which marks the entrance to Port Cooper. The entrance to the, port is very wide and free from dangers, but' being open to south-easterly winds, which often rage along the' coast with great fury, it is not a safe harbour at those seasons. The view, as the harbour is entered,, however...

SOCIALITIES [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

The first impulse of a man when he meets with an acci dent, or gets into a scrape, is to endeavour to find out someone upon whom he can cast the blame. From Adam, who meanly accused the woman of tempting him to eat when he was detected in his first act of disobedience, down to the reader who fell over the coal scuttle in the dark last night, and stormed at his wife, his servant, or his children, for leaving it as a trap for him, the tendency of the human mind is always in the direction of abusing somebody else . for our own misdeeds or misfortunes. If a man slips in the street, he swears at the people who throw orange peels on the pavement ; if he gets caught in a shower, he racks his brains to find out who is to blame for his 6oming out without an umbrella ; if ho catches cold through sitting in a draught, he lays his misfortune at the door of thoBo who left the window open ; and if he takes rather too much over night, he considers that his headache the next morning is .due solely ...

Dr. Bradford and Miss Ware apparently assented to this, but on the 23rd June lust Miss Ware left Mrs. Tetley 's under pretence of going to lunch ac a friend's.

MDLLE. ILMA DE MURSKA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

MDLLE. ILMA DE MURSKA. The name of Mdlle. lima de Mureka has occupied such a large share of public attention ?'since her arrival .in Melbourne, and she has taken— on the assured basis of real worth — such a high position in public esteem, that we present the readers of TheAus* iralasianSkeichervfithheTpoTtr&itand some particulars concerning herartist career, which cannot fail to be. interesting. In her Hun garian home, and at an early age, Bhe developed the possession of a rare voice and a natural aptitude for singing that were full of the rich promise we now see fulfilled. But she did not receive all her training entirely in early life. The first we hear of Mdlle. de Murska as a student is at Vienna, in 1863, where, under . the- tuition of Marches!*, and with no more than three months of study, she carried off the first prize of the Conservatory. In this contest Bhe Bang the solfeggi and other exercises of Garcia and Proch with brilliant Buccess. it is pretty evident, there...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

Since we last addressed our readers the colony has in dulged itself in the somewhat costly amusement of a Minis terial crisis. After defeating an amendment moved by Mr. Berry on their budget scheme, Mr. Kerferd and his col leagues agreed to take another test-division, in order to put it out of any hon. member's power to say that he had been taken by surprise. The vote was taken on the proposal to increase the spirit duties, and resulted in tho Government securing a majority of one. This was brought about by the action of certain so-called free- trade members, who, regardless of the interests of their party, unblushingly took such a course as might possibly gratify their personal enmi ties or advance their personal fortunes. Of course, under the circumstances, Mr. Kerferd was compelled to consider his position. It was manifestly useless to endeavour to carry a large measure of financial reform with only a ma jority of one. After close considerati6n',l.1herefore, the late Premier deci...

The Teatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

Mb. Wheatleigh's engagement at the Theatre Royal has been on the whole a satisfactory one. Not overwhelmingly satisfactory like that of Mr. and Mrs. Williamson, but, nevertheless, fairly satisfactory. He has been found to be a reasonably intelligent actor, with a certain degree of aptitude for what are technically known as 'character' parts, and with a manner suggestive of a good deal of quiet power. He does not take you by storm, as an actor of genius or even great talent does, but he satisfies you. ' You confess that his acting is beyond what is merely respectable, and if he never rises to thrilling intensity, he never becomes ? disappointing. The most notable fault in him is his sameness.- He does not sufficiently differentiate one character from another. All the- parts he has played are members of the same family. They are not fac-similes, any more than so many brothers are fac-similes ; but they are cleverly born of the same stock. If he had played nothing but the Shaughraun, h...
