GOLD AND THE GOLDFIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

GOLD AND THE GOLDFIELDS. Matters on the, gold-fields have of late presented rather a more promising aspect. In its last monthly summary The Argus reported: — The most important items -of news this mouth con cerning the gold-field industry are from Ballarat, which up to wicuin tne post two or tbree years was, in consequence oi its maguificently rich, deep alluvial claims, the leading gold-field of the colony. From the time that the yields of the alluvial mines of Ballarat began to decline, a dulnesa crept over what, was then known as the metropolitan, gold-field, and though hopes we're entertained that the alluvial wiues in existence would soon improve, and perhaps regain their former payable qualities, or that others equally rich would be found in the district, such, hopes were noc realised, and have not even yet been fulfilled. Some of the Ballarat people, however, turned their attention to the subject of quartz-mining, it being considered by. many that in the ranges on and around ...

THE O'CONNELL CENTENARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

THE O'CONNELL CENTENARY. The celebration of the O'Connell Centenary in Melbourne was a great success, and the same may be said of it in every town in the colony which, arranged a separate commemoration of the occasion. In the metropolis, the proceedings were begun by a banquet in the Town-hall on August 5, followed by .an Irish concert at the same place on the following day ; and a procession and great gathering in the Friendly Societies' Gar dens on the 7th brought the matter to a successful termination. The proceedings were characterised by warm and glowing tributes to the memory of the great Irish Liberator, and it is very satis factory to be able to praise their total freedom from anything calculated to offend any section of the community. This was a very pleasing feature of the celebration in this colony, and shows how we are ' getting free from the animosities and bigot ries which embittered the great conflict in which O'Connell's life was spent We subjoin notices of the vario...

THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1875. LOCALISM IN POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 September 1875

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1875. LOCALISM IN POLITICS. Every form of government has its drawbacks, and in everycommunity these manifest themselves in some special manner. There is reason to believe that the worst danger to which our political institutions are exposed in this country comes from the spirit of localism — that spirit which induces the various districts to regard their representatives but as agents sent to Parliament to get as much as possible for their respective localities, and to get it by any means. Wo have, without question, other perils which arise from our democratic form of government — the peril of class legislation, of the wisdom of the few being overborne by the folly of the many, and many others. But, after all, these, with all of their possible evils, have something redeeming about them as compared with the other. Injustice, when perpetrated by a nation, or by a large class, has, at anv ... .„ . ....... — — . irv uiu nvuubei rate, its selfish/nfiao. a,™™™\-~a --...

During the time that she spent in this. city she absorbed all the attention of those who take delight in music, and- here they form a very numerous class. With ordinary dramatic perform ances at the Theatre Royal — with the extraordinary attractions presented by Adelaide Ristori and her company . at the Opera-house, and with numerous other amusements of lesser claims to public attention going on simultaneously in all directions— Mdlle.de Murska filled the Town-hall every time she appeared.

THE MURDER OF COMMODORE GOODENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 October 1875

THE MURDER OF COMMODORE GOODENOUGH. It is doubtful if any event of tbe kind since the death of Captain Cook has so deeply impressed the public mind throughout the British Empire, and even beyond its limits, as the loss, in a very similar way, of Commodore Goodenough, the senior naval officer commanding the Australian station. There was much in tbe character of Commodore Goodenough calculated to deepen this impression, and to add to the general grief at his loss. Wherever he was known bis kindliness of disposition and genuine benevolence had acquired him friends, whose friendship was mingled with the deepest respect. It was, therefore, a great shock to all these communities when, on August 22, the news was telegraphed from Sydney that H.M.S. Pearl had arrived from the South Seas, bringing the bodies of the Commodore and two of his men, who had been killed by a treacherous attack of tho natives of Santa Cruz, that island of sinister fame, where tbe brave and devoted Bishop Patteson wa...

The racing season has fairly commenced, and the Hawkes bury and Rand wick Spring Meetings are now among past events. Hawkesbury set the ball rolling, the meeting having taken place on Wednesday and Thursday, August 25 and 26. ' The principal events were the Guineas and the Grand Handicap, throwing, as they do, some light on the A. J.C. Derby and Metropolitan. For the former race eight three year olds ran — the Valetta colt, Richmond, the Sylvia colt, Clifton, Hyperion, Barbara, Guelder Rose, and Kismet. The start was a very bad one, and the favourite, getting a long way the best of it, won in a canter, Richmond second, and the Sylvia colt third, nothing else rieafritwasBy no mearis a true-run race, as after events proved. For the Grand Handicap a field of 13 ran, of which lot Mr. Tait's Golds brough was the favourite. The race ended in a surprise, being pretty easily won by Mr. J. B.

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 October 1875

WELLINGTON', NEW ZEALAND. Ik connexion with the view of the city, of Wellington, we cannot do better than extract the following sketch of the town, as furnished to The Australasian by the special correspondent of that journal :— The city consists principally of a long line of street fringing the harbour — from Pipitea Point, the present railway station, on the north to Te Aro shore on the south. From the one point to the other, along Thorndon Quay, Lambton Quay, Willis-Htreery and Manners-street, is a good half-hour's walk. At both Pipitea and Te Aro are reserves for the natives, where large numbers of Maories live in native fashion, though some of them have put up houses in the European style. The hospital stands here— a somewhat primitive building, which it has now been found must be greatly enlarged to meet the demands upon it from the increasing population. The city from this point has stretched up a narrow but picturesque valley called Tinakori, at the head of which are the Bot...

THE FIRST "SPELLING BEE" IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 October 1875

THE FIRST 'SPELLING BEE' IN MELBOURNE. That curious entertainment of American origin, the 'Spelling Bee,' or public competition in spelling, has latelybecome acclima tised amongst ub. The first one in Victoria was held a few weeks ago in St. Kilda, and the effect of its success was to cause a crowd of beeB to be announced in tbe advertising columns of the papers in many parts of Melbourne and irs suburbs. The first held in tbe city took place in the Athenteum, on Saturday, August 21, and it is this which our 'artist has taken as the subject of his sketch. The Athenaeum, long before the hour announced for the opening of the evening's amusement, was crowded to its utmost capacity. It had been evidently feared by the promoters of the 'bee' that the spelling tournament would not in itself prove a sufficient source of attraction, and, consequently, the first half hour. was. devoted to a number of musical, selections, vocal and instrumental ; but the evident impatience which tbe audience ...

SKETCHER SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1875. THE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 2 October 1875

? SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1875. ? THE EXHIBITION. The present is virtually an 'Exhibition Number' of The Australasian Skctcher. The general view of the Exhibition, the opening ceremony, and sketches of some of the more prominent features of the show occupy a large place among our illustrations, and the account of the collection and of the proceedings connected with it forms' a considerable portion of our letterpress. It cannot be doubted that the importance of the event is such as to entitle it to all the notice it has received. Such exhibitions as this are found to possess great industrial and commercial value in older communities, but it is apparent that their value in young and rapidly growing states is much greater. Our rate of change is so swift that it is necessary to hold these industrial stock-takings at more frequent intervals. Moreover, it is in the case of countries of mushroom growth, which have sprung into greatness in the lifetime of a generation, that the need of bringin...
