OFF FOR THE HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

OFF FOR THE HOLIDAYS. ' Are you going out of town for tho holi days?' is a question whioh has boon frequently put to us during the past week or.two. With all who oould possibly ^manage to throw off tho oaros of business for a few days the answer hns invariably beon in the affirmative. A visit to oither of the two metropolitan stations during the days preooding Christmas and Now Year's day would be rewarded with the sight o£ a oon course of people suoh as is represented by our artist. : There are family groups, happy in thoir anticipation of the pleasures of a trip into the country. Enoh member of the party is car rying some portion of the luggage, usually an artlole whioh gives the onlooker some clue as to the way in whioh the owner is about to enjoy himself, guns, fishing rods, cricket and tonnifl material being strongly in ovidonce. Other groups are composed of the luoky person bound for a retreat far from tho crowded city and tho friends who have come to aeo him off. The bustling...

A RABBIT PRESERVING FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

A RABBIT PRESERVING FACTORY. One result of the rabbit plague, and probably the only profitable one in connection with it, has been the establishment of a few preserving faotorios in the colony. Some of these have been several years in existence, and though it may be that in no case have' they bten instrumental in exterminating the pest' in the locality in whioh - the factory is established, the carcasses , and skins have been given a commercial value instead of being left to rot and poison the air as is the caso where other means of extermination have been tried. One of the most noted rabbit warrens in the oolony and also ono of tho most difficult places from whioh to dislodge the animals is the strip of country known as the Stony Riaes, situated midway between Colao and Camper down. In appearahoe this is now a most inhos pitable looking rook strown region, thiokly .covered with bracken fern, and though possessing a picturesque oharaoter of. its own, is the olass of country to bo ca...

SHOOTING ALLIGATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

SHOOTING ALLIGATORS. The sports and pastimes of the residents in the various portions of Australia, although they are very much alike in the main, yet present some points of contrast. Aa a matter of course, wherever a few people gather together in these ooloniea the races form, par excellence, their oheif holiday of the year, but one has to go to the high latitudes of Northern Queensland to indulge in the fun of alligator shooting. The spot chosen by our artist for illustration is on a run abutting on the Burdekin River. The alligators have made havoc among the calves, whioh dainty morsels tho saurians hnve picked off as they came down to the stream to drink. With a view to ridding the neighborhood of a few of its undesirable residents, and also as an agreeable break in the routine of station work, the squatter and a friond have journeyed to the waterside, where, having tethered their horses in a dump of trees, they throw them selves down within range of tho river banks, so as to be...

Mr. Zurbini was a musician of sterling attainments, who was as well known in .London as in Melbourne. The deceased gentleman, who came to Melbourne' in 1885, was for a long time a performer at the London Popular Concerts of Messrs. Ohappell and Co., when he formed one of the string quartet, the other players being Messrs. Joachim, Ries and Piatti. He was in fact acknowledged to be one of the finest viola players of the world, quite able to hold his own with the distinguished artists named ; and to this it should be, added that: he was also a com petent pianist, 'being in the habit of acting as oonduotor and accompanist at the con certs above referred to. His first ap pearance in Melbourne was at a testimonial concert given to Mr. Julius Herz on 8th Aug ust, 1885 ; and on the 9th of the following month h...

THE FIRST BISHOP OF MELBOURNE. The' Right Rev. Charles Perry, D.D., was the first Bishop of Melbourne,- and had charge of the see for 27 years. He may j ustly be regarded as the founder of the Anglican Church in Victoria. On his arrival in Melbourne in January, 1848, there were but three olergymen and three con gregations in tho diocese ; .when he' finally loft, 'the ..colony in ; April, 1874, there, were- 120 clergymen.,.

A STRANGE SIGNAL. A YOUNG ARTIST ADVENTURE IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

: : A STRANGE SIGNAL. A Young Artist's Adventure in the South Pacific. By S. G. W. Benjamin. The night was unusually boisterous when tho ship Viking unexpectedly struck on a coral reef. The next wavo carried her ovor tho reef and she lodged on a shoal in comparative smooth water near an islet, whoso outline oould bo dimly perceived through the gloom. This was indeed an unpleasant prodicamont. The captain supposed he was many miles from the nearest land, and could not imagine what island this could be to which thoy had been carried by treacherous curronts. No lights were to be seen, and whether tho islet was un inhabited or occupied by savages and cannibals they would not know until daylight. One or tho other it was suro to be. Being young and ' romantic, Water Durand, who was a passenger on board, was less alarmed than his com panions, and the lively fancy of his ' artistio brain wan busy picturing the possible scenes that the morrow would x'oveal. ' ? But terror overcame most of th...

SUMMARY OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

SUMMARY OP NEWS. The Ballarat Hebrew congregation have resolved to take immediate action to form a fund for the relief of the persecuted Jews in Russia. A goodly sum has already been sub- scribed.   Mr. Stanley receives the biggest sum ever paid to a lecturer in the Antipodes. The agree- ment contains a heavy forfeiture clause, which will be operative if necessary against the explorer.       While fishing at the boulder bank, Picton, recently, two fishermen caught a fine specimen of the taniwha shark, 16 feet long and with jaws wide enough to take in a man of even more than average size.     At Norfolk Island whaling is over, and the big fish have departed for another year. The season financially has been very unlucky, only 10 whales, yielding about 24 tons of oil, having   been taken by the nine boats, and about 90 men engaged in the industry, which will yield little or no dividend to the men...

ART. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

. ART. '? ? The art section is divided into four galleries, a magnificent piece of statuary by Signor Fon- taina gracing each of them. A conspicuous feature of the works of art is a set of pictures in water colors by Podmore, representing, with the greatest fidelity to scientific and artistic re- quirements, the different species of fish of New South Wales. Some idea may be formed of the general artistic value of the pictures dis- played by the fact that, the British section alone cost £7000, the Tasmanian £5000. The names of a number of distinguished artists appear on the canvas of many ot the pictures, amongst the better known Australian ones being Piguenet, Forrest, Brenasoi, J. Clayton, Adams and Mrs. P. O. Maxwell. One of the numerous side galleries that run parallel with the annexes has been reserved for the display of Victorian art works, and there are some worthy specimens from the hands of well known painters. Landscape paintings and   bush scenery predominate ...

ART IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 January 1892

ART IN AUSTRALIA. By Gilbert Parker. [English Illustrated Magazine.] . Art Is alive in Australia. It has passed a time of travail. More than is the case with other young countries, the Australian Govern ments are paternal.' Though this foot is some times perilous to courage, and self dependence, , painting and soulpture are not likely to suffer from too much administrative care. Others of the fine arts are praotixed in an area of wider understanding and patronage. People will dance, and' they must therefore pay them that pipe; they will sing and play— especially in Australia — and they in consequence demand songs and music and some one to teach. Ohurohes require organists, musieal societies need conductors, theatres must have orohostraa ; and so the the musician oan at least make a living. He calculates upon a demand that he has not himself created, but which has been the outcome of a general instinct and prodis position. Not so the artist in the pioneer times.
