SOCIALITIE'S [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 October 1875

When the public mind is excited to an unusual degree from any cause, the disease of insanity increases to an appreciable extent. The great railway mania of 30 years ago was held accountable for sending hundreds to the lunatic asylums. Spiritism brought out, in a greater or less degree, the latent madness of every one who was foolish enough to join a circleV^tAind every revival of modern times has acted with the force of several- full moons on numbers who' might otherwise have lived and died in possession of their reasoning faculties. , It would appear that the mind, like the body, . is always prepared to receive the germ of disease, and that there are epidemics of insanity that sweep through nations, like small-pox or measles. Mad doctors might establish a principle from, this. Children who were inoculated with spiritism in- their, yotith might have their brains! sayed from turning wheriithey arrived at manhood, and a little infantile rovival be ?thla/sjmeahis -of'- keeping- grown m...

MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 October 1875

^^^^^^^Jlj|itf|l|HI§lIflJiI§!iIfHllllJfJflISiiMli^^^^Tllls From: the time when Mademoiselle Ilnia de Murska left Melbourne for Adelaide — namely, on the 14th September — until she returned again on the 7th of October, the audiences, here were permitted to enjoy some respite from the constant claims on their musical attention to which they have been so subject of late. Three or four concerts in a month, or the nightly varied productions of opera at the Opera-house by a numerous company, have hitherto been sufficient to please every variety of musical taste. But when Mademoi selle lima de Murska is present it is she alone whom the people want to hear, and the three concerts per week at which she appears are sufficient to fully occupy the atten tion of all musical. Melbourne, so that when' she goes away for a while a little rest is found to be necessary. During her stay in Adelaide she met with success proportionable to that of Melbourne, when the difference in the numbers of the peopl...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 October 1875

The political events of the past month have been of a most exciting kind, and' cannot fail to exercise a very material influence on our future career. No doubt the stage. on which our party struggles are 'fought out is some what small and insfgnificant when compared with those oh which European statesmen do their posturing. But it appears to us that the zeal which we -throw into bur political contests is in an . inverse proportion to their im portance-! in. a world-wide point of view. In England, when a change of Ministry transfers to other hands the management of the affairs of between two and. three hun dred millions of the human race, we question whether nine-tenths of the people know or care anything about the matter. ,Here, however, where universal suffrage has been established for over fifteen years, and fierce wars have been waged' over questions deeply interesting to the masses, every man is a politician, and the current of Parliamentary events is watched and'eanvassed with ...

AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1875. POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES OF FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 October 1875

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1875. POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES OF FEDERATION. The subject of the federation of the colonies is one that is never altogether absent from the mind of the Australian public. It is often for the time overborne by the pressure of local and temporary matters, but it is always cropping up again to the surface. Often, when wearied with the pettiness of our local colonial politics, the grasping greed and selfish ambition which they display, the feeling arises of impatience for the time when all dividing lines will merge into the great nationality of an Australian Dominion, and when our politics will be restored from their present condition and placed on a higher level, and made amenable to a broader, more impartial public opinion. Of late several matters have contributed to raise the subject of federation to the position of a topic of discussion. Not, indeed, with a view to any practical and immediate, or even proximate, result. But it is felt that before anything can be ...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 October 1875

SPORTING             Since Hawkesbury and Randwick there has been the usual lull in racing, broken only by the Hunt Club Meeting at Flemington on October 9. The proverbial bad luck, in the shape of weather, was experienced, and the meeting was consequently shorn of its chief attraction — a large and fashionable attendance. The sport was very good, however, the Hunt Club Cup being won by Mr. Chirnside's Sailor, ridden by young Mr. Chirnside. Every horse but Nimbook came to grief in the race, some more than once. Flemington lhas been a busy. locality every, morning. for . some time, all the stables in the neighbourhood being full of horses, although the weather has been much against training, rendering the ground, never very good, often unfit to work on. . Large fields will start for the Maribyrnong Plate and Derby, and for the Melbourne Cup probably 28 or 30 horses will see the starting-post. A most excitin...

Sketches with Pen AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MAGDALA MINE, SEVENTEEN HUNDRED FEET DEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 30 October 1875

AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MAGDALA MINE, SEVENTEEN HUNDRED FEET DEEP. The most important event which has for a long time occurred in gold-mining in Australia is the reaching a quartz reef at the bottom of the Magdala shaft, Stawell, at the depth of 1,681½ft.,   and the importance of the occasion well deserves pictorial illustration and detailed description. The Magdala is one of those mines in which the faith of a few ardent believers, linked with the succees and prospects of some of the adjoiningg mines, has impelled many to take up shares for investment and to hold to them through good report and evil report ; and it certainly may be safely said that few mines have had more evil reports circulated relative to their probable worthlessness than the Magdala. Whether it will be able to defy these remains to be seen, but at present there is every probability that it will. The company started operations some eight years ago, and sank their shaft in the hope of cutting the famous ...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. Ik its last monthly summary TJie Argils reported under tin's lead :— On all the various gold, fields work has been carried on both in tbcTgold-bearing and prospecting mines apparently with tbe usual amount or success, and the yields that have been published justify' the belktf that the amount of gold obtained throughout the colony generally is being well kept up, if, indeed, it. is not being increased. The itemB of news from Sandhurst, Bullarar, Stawel), Creswick, Black wood, and other principal mining district!! are of a favourable nature, and in most instances show that a great deal of prospecting is being carried on in search of quartz* mines or alluvial waihditt supposed to exist in the grounds tbat are 'being prospected.

LIEUTENANT CONNOR'S EXPLORATION OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

LIEUTENANT CONNOR'S EXPLOKATION OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA. The examination of the Gulf of Carpentaria by Lieutenant Connor Beerns (says tbe Brisbane Courier) to have finally set at rest'tbe question of the existence in that great bight of a natural port or harbour suitable for the reception of large vessels. His labours were confined to a careful examination of the coast between Parker and Bayley Points, and a chain of islands of wbich Allen and Forsyth Islands are tbe chief. Tbe rest of the gulf was pretty well known before, and now it may be laid down as a fact tbat the Queensland portion of it does not contain a decent harbour. Investigator Roads and the mouth of the Norman River are spoken of as affording the best anchorage for deep-draught vesBels ; but the former is! not a suitable place for carrying on trade, and the latter, being exposed to the nortb-east winds and liable to a heavy sea, is only comparatively secure. It is known that the country at the head of tbe gulf is b...

They were surprised by a party of blacks, numbering from 15 to 20, who attempted to surround them, but did not throw any Bpeara ormolesttbem further. Tbe Chinamen, however, threw down their bamboos and baskets, and made off at a Blapping pace down the mountain, and reached tbe stores at the Laura minus all their traps. They related their exefiencea, butunf ortunately no notice was taken of tbeir Btory by the people there, otherwise the accident; that followed next day might have been obviated.

Hero left Sydney at five minutes past 8 p.m. on October 20, with a S.W. wind, the storm signal at Jervis's Bay indicating a southerly gale. We continued on our course, tbe wind blowing moderately from S.W., with occasional squalls of rain. This lasted until 3 p.m. on the 21st October, when the wind and sea increased.
