MUSIC [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 27 November 1875

^^^^^^^^^^I^Ml^^^lllitiifiHIliffifiglfliiflHiillllfllllmflf^i^^^i^^^^^^^'^^il Mademoiselle Ilma de Mukska has concluded a long and successful career in this city. She maintained to the last unweakened her hold on the music-loving population of Melbourne, and the enthusiasm which was evoked by her first appearance in this city remained in full force, and never greeted her more warmly than when she appeared for the last time. This event took place on November 1, at a farewell concert given in the Town-hall. On the Satur day previous she sang in one of the pleasant entertainments given at the Melbourne Athenaeum by the Metropolitan Iiiedertafel. Without its having been in any way rpublicly advertised, it Beemed to be generally known amongst the large circle which surrounds the subscribers that Mademoi selle de Murska was going to sing, and the result was, naturally enough, that the hall was filled to its utmost capacity. Mademoiselle de MurBka. was supported by the company which had be...

THE OLD RACE AND THE NEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

THE OLD RACE AND THE NEW. i. Last of her tribe ! left sorrowful and lonely, A vanished race to wail : Of wars and woes which wrought decay, she only Is left to tell the tale— To tell of those who common ills defied, Yet drooped before the white man's breath, and died. II. Last of her tribe ! her lot, indeed, were dreary, If charity were dead ; If will to aid, and love to cheer tbe weary, From ev'ry heart had fled. But, see ! she is not left without a friend Without the solace sympathy can lend. III. A benediction rest upon thee, maiden, For this one kindly deed ; May thy young life be fair, be pleasure-laden, And peace thy after-meed. 1 In such as thee we find the salt of earth, The promise of humanity's new birth. IV. Around the world our conquering race is sweeping With swift resistless tread ; And everywhere are Nature's children weeping For those untimely sped. Though all our might be impotent to save Our care may smooth their pathway to the grave.

COUNTRY HAWKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

COUNTRY HAWKERS. To a large number of people living in the remote and only thinly.settled districts the viBit of the bush hawker, with his cart forms an important link with civilisation. The.hawker comes at once as a representative of the useful and the beautiful. He brings materials for dress and plates of, the newest. fashions from Paris six months old. He may be consulted with confidence on the momentous question as to what is now worn in Collins-Btreet, and his answers always happily serve to aid in the sale, of some of the multifarious wares in his wonderfully Btocked cart. The miscellaneous character of bis goods is beyond belief. That it should include all articles of drapery, all feminine requisites, from a back-comb to a parasol, is nothing but what might have been expected. That it should be enabled to supply a bushman with working apparel of all kinds, and with suits of ready-made Sunday attire of the most perfect and marvellous designs, is not at all surprising.

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

One of the racing events of the month has been the Bendigo Jockey Club Annual Meeting, held on December 1 and 2. The success of the first day was much interfered with by the disagreable weather, which kept many away who would otherwise have attended. The programme commenced with the Epsom Handicap, for which the only horse scratched was Feu d'Artifice. Constance was very fractious at the post, and delayed the start for some time. Herod had all the advantage of the start, and but for a short ..time when opposite the' stand, when he was held back for a little, he was leading all the way. ? The xain, had come on just as the horses started, and they finished in a blinding storm of rain and hail. Southern Cross did not like the wet,, and finished a moderate second. A very heavy storm of rain delayed the start for the Hurdle Race a little time. The result of this race was a still greater surprise than the Epsom Handicap. Alice Hawthorn fell after going about a mile, and was got on her leg...

AUSTRALASIAN KCTCHER SATURDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1875. PARTY GOVERNMENT IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

SATUMDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1875. PARTY GOVERNMENT IN AUSTRALIA. An English paper has recently been speculating on he state of politics that would be brought about by the total annihilation of the dividing lines that seem to be so rapidly disappearing between Conservatives and Liberals. These distinctions at the present time have very little real meaning. At the utmost , it means that both parties go in the same direction along the same road, but that one goes in advance of the other. The Conservative rests at night where the Liberal rested the night before, but that is all. If this is a fair statement of the case, there is strong reason for the belief that distinctions, that have come to imply bo little, will soon cease to exist. That is to say, the name and party organisation may be kept up, and all the warfare for office may be conducted on the present footing, but the principles once held by the opposite parties will have merged into a composite mass, equally shared, or at any rate e...

DISCOVERY OF MOA BONES NEAR WANGAREI. 'The existence of the moa in the north island of New Zea land lias been conclusively proved,' writes the Southern Cross, 'by the discovery of large quantities of moa bone» near Wun' garei. Mr. G. Thorne, jun., and Mr. Cheeseman, F.L S., curator of the Auckland Museum, returned on SaturWny, Nov. 20 after having made a thorough examination of the Wnngurei district, with the view of ascertaining if ibe moa had inhabited tbe districts to the noith of Auckland. They brought with them a quantity of moa boneo, some human bones, bones of seals, whales, &c, which hud been found in the district examined. They found in every sandy bny north of Bream Head, us far north as Ngnguru, traces of the existence of th« moa having been contemporaneous with man. There was bIpo abundant evidence that the district had then been more thickly inhabited than it is at present ' Maori ovens' were found in hundreds in almost every little bay.

DANGERS FROM THE BLACKS AT THE PALMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

DANGERS FROM THE BLACKS AT THE PALMER. 'Information reached Cooktown recently,' writes a corre spondent of the Brisbane Telegraph, ' that the blacks were massing in large numbers at various points on the Palmer-road, and evidently meant, mischief. Accordingly, Sergeant Devine. with three 'boys,' was Bent out from the main ramp to pee what be could do to bring them to submission. The blacks weie overtaken, camped in a scrub about 40 miles from the township, and not far from tbe seashore. They were 'dispersed,' leaving the most of their spears, which were poisoned nnd of great strength, behind them. In the camp were found all sorts of things that had belonged to unfortunate diggers who had been murdered. Before the attack on the camp was made, . the sergeant and the troopers had to leave their borsep, and to walk up and down ranges for about four miles, and then follow tbe blacks about; two miles into the pcrub. . ? Piccaninnies' were left behind by the dozen, the gins abandoning them...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

QrOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. In its last summary The Argus reported : — The most important item of tniningnews during tbepast month' has been the auriferous development of the Londonderry Quartz-mining Company, on the Garden Gully line of reef at Sandhurst. From time to time companies on the various lines of quartz reefs at. Sandhurst have obtained exceedingly large yields,: of ren for months together, but it is many months now since' such has been tbe case, titid, asa consequence, wining affairs in the quartz metropolitan town have been dull. The new discoveries of. the Londonderry Com pany, combined, with those of another — the Golden Stream, Tribute — have restored \ confidence in a marked degree in tbe future prospects not only of the particular companies whose claims are near where new finds .have been made, but. also in others. The stone struck in the Londonderry Company's claim, which is far south on the Garden 'Gully line, is a mining face which cannot well be over-estimated, ...

THE WEATHER. The season has been an exceedingly cold, wet, and late one. Although the time is that of early Bummer, the wfather for a long while was that of late winter. The acting Government astronomer tbus reported of the week ending December 4 : — ' The weather at the beginning of last wei-k was dull and eultry, but became very fine and iileasarit on the 29th, and remained po .until tbe early morning of the lnt, when a strong westerly gale set in, with occasional violent gusts of wind, lasting until tbe evening, when it moderated.

"BRUMBIE" SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

' BRUMBIE' SHOOTING. We find in a Queensland paper the following uketcb, quoted from Munro's Almanac, ot the mode of life of those who are enpugedin the work of hotsn shooting on »orne of the back runs of New South Wales and Queensland : — It is comparatively a newborn calling. Anybody 20 years ago pioffering his serviced to the 'bloated squatter' as an exterminator of, horses would probably have- been regarded either in the light of a fitting can didate for a lunatic us-luiu, or as a person upon whom it behoved the limbs of the law to keep a 8 burp eye. Horseflesh, ; if not scarce or ruinously deary was certainly neither too cheap nor superabundant, and few in all likelihood of the large stock owners of New South Wales and Queensland who have recently been driven to employ 'sportsmen' to annihilate the countless droves of them upon their runs; few, I say, ever probably con templnttd such a contingency. An instance of this. The Messrs. ? employed me recently for a year to shoot thei...
