CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

A pkotr.act.ed debate has taken place upon the financial proposals of the M'Culloch Government. Although amongst the critics who submitted these to review were two ex Treasurers, from whom they could not expect .very much favour, these gentlemen were not in a position to -offer very strenuous opposition to a scheme of finance which, except in two or three points, substantially agreed with those which, they hadi heniselves brought in two and four months before. ''Mr. Berry moved a« amendment, :. ' That tho financial proposals of the Government are unsatisfactory. ' He urged the House to insist on an appeal to the consti tuencies, and strongly advised it not to assent to the - imposition of the new taxes proposed until the electors had been, enabled to express an opimon upon them. On behalf of the Opposition he offered to give every facility for obtaining supplies and for carrying on the work of Govern ment if V dissolution' were granted. Mr. Service made a pointed and able attack on ...

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

At the Theatre Royal an extraordinary and indescribable drama, entitled 'Fidelia the Fire Waif,' with Nell, the Calif ornian. Diamond, as the heroine, has been the chief attraction. After the piece had been running a week or two - Tahite, the dramatic critic of The Australasian, in commenting upon its success, said ':- — ' It must be confessed that in the discussion upon Nell's merits, whatever the conclusion arrived at in estimating these, it is impossible to deny that she is able to keep the attention of the audience alive. You cannot grow dull or sleepy while she is on the stage. She is not wearisome ; she may startle you, but she does not tire you. If you strongly object to the play itself, or to the manner in which the chief cha racter is dealt with, or to the poverty and tumidity'bf the language employed, or to the extravagance pfv the costume adopted, you cannot but confess that the spirit, the energy, the earnestness, the power — of its kind — shown in the acting claim a ver...

' If merit in the performance of .this character,' wrote ' Tahite, in The Australasian, 'is to be determined by complying -with the conditions of life-likeness, then there can be no doubt that Miss Melville's successin it^i^ beyond question. If youth, good looks, a natural unaffected manner, earnestness, and a fresh unforced voice be indis pensable to present the Amina of this Italian pastoral as Bellini desired her to be presented, then I think we have nothing to wish for in respect of it: It would be easy to disparage her by instituting comparisons with a dozen great singers who have preceded her, but I do not think anything is to be gained by such comparisons. In this, as in all other characters Miss Melville has played, ...

Sketches with Pen. ASPECTS OF CHRISTMAS DAY IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

i — ? ' tp ASPECTS OF CHRISTMAS DAY IN AUSTRALIA. It has been remarked more than once— in fact, it has been a subject of frequent remark about tbia time of the year — that the inhabitants of the southern hemisphere spend their Christmas Day in a manner somewhat different from those who dwell north of the Equator. There might be a mutual interchange of natural productions between us and our antipodes with considerable advantage to both sides of the world. We would willingly barter one of our best hoc winds and tons of the finest Australian dust for a good nor'-wester, fresh from the. waves of the Atlantic, and two feet deep of snow on our garden walks. How our friends at home, would like the hot winds and. the dust when they get the.ru, and what we ourselves would do with the nor'-wester and snow, are totally different questions. We are discontented mortals at home or abroad. ' Wo look before and after, and sigh for what Is not ;' and if we get what we sigh for, we will probably sigh...

THE GERMAN SETTLEMENT AT HILL PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 25 December 1875

THE GERMAN SETTLEMENT AT HILL PLAINS. GREAT surprise was occasioned a few weeks ago by the publi- cation in The Argus of an extraordinary story, extracted from the columns of the Maryborough Standard, of the starving condition of a number of German families on the Hill Plains, some 30 or 40 miles to the northward of Benalla. The statement beng made public, the police authorities directed Inspector Brook Smith to proceed from Wangaratta to the place to ascertain the real state of the case, and a representative of The Argus, who was despatched from Melbourne, accompanied the police inspector on his visit. We reproduce the greater portion of The Argus reporter's account (which is dated November 28), with a view of fully elucidating our illustrations. It is necessary to state that on visiting the place it was found that there were two encampments of the Germans, one about four miles distant from the other, and situated on the Cocked-hat Creek, but both on the run of Messrs. Nichol and T...

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

OUlt COLOURED SUPPLEMENT : THE OLD RACE AND THE NEW. In this plate our artist has sought to illustrate a curious phase of the relations of the departing aboriginals to the growing masterful race of invaders which was once de scribed in a country paper. . The story was that an old native woman, the last of her once numerous tribe, lived at a station in a district over which her people had roamed in earlier times. She was maintained by the charity and kindness of the daughter of the proprietor of the station as a favourite pensioner. The account stated that a strong feeling of attachment grew up bet ween, the two, and that a significant and interesting view was presented when in their frequent walks they were seen, the old aboriginal, suitable representative of a vanishing people, leaning on the arm of her bright- faced, blooming protectress, one , of a race before which her own was so rapidly disappearing from the earth. A poem dealing, with the idea suggested by the view is printed ...

Sketches with Pencil FIVE O'CLOCK TEA: IN TOWN AND IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

five o'clock tea: in town and in the bush. r Five o'clock tea, which is an 'institution,' as the Americans Bay, in social life in the city, is also an institu tion in the bush. Only the institution takes very different forms in the two cases. In one it is merely a device to help to fill the vacuity of fashion able life. It was found by some social genius that when a number of people, afternoon callers, were together striving to lighten, as far as they could, the. weight of boredom which they felt to be pressing upon all and each, the occupation of drinking, or pretend ing to drink, tea helped to break the monotony and to fill the vacancy of the time. Moreover, the social cup, like the social glass, is an aid to conversation. It assists to set free the flow of speech, to give a point to narrative, a spice to scandal, an edge to satire, a pungency to conversation generally. So five o'clock tea is found to possess many advantages, and to be an agreeable incident in the butterfly existe...

NEW GUINEA. Some interesting letters from Signor J. M. D'Albertis, tho Italian naturalist who has been for some time in New Guinea exPl°ring anrl collecting, have been published by Dr. Bennett in tb&byaney Morn'ma Herald. We select the following extracts, Of the native races Signor D'Albertis writes : — 'As there are °l i? d''erences found between tbe customs of each village, I shall give you the account of each one separately, taking the principal villages, according to the number of inhabitants and fertility of the country. The race inhabiting Yule island and the coast of New Guinea, east nnd west of the inland, differ materially from the inhabitants of the far west of Now Guinea, the true Papuans, or the mixture resulting from their intercom-Be ii 8$ron«er* It is difficult to say to what race these people really belong.

Ill '?*-''? ? ?**? * ''' ? ---?'?-??' —-.p THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. The great sporting feature of the Christmas holidays was the Intercolonial Cricket Match, on the ground of the Melbourne Cricket Club. These annual contests always attract a great deal of public interest and collect a' large and fashionable attendance. On the present occasion, as the Victorian men were last year beaten, both in the match at home and the return match at Sydney, great interest attached to the present one, which it was hoped would restore the somewhat jeopardised reputation of this colony in cricketing matters. However, as the sequel will show, this expectation was sadly disappointed. The first day of the match' was Boxing Day. The; Melbourne cricket ground was densely crowded throughout the day, and :at onetime it was estimated that there were fully 12,000 persons present, a large proportion of whom were ladies. The play was very closely watched, and the spectators were unsparing in their appl...

NELSON, NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

NELSON, NEW ZEALAND. The city of Nelson, which is the see of a bishop and the capital of a province, is situated on a small harbour at the bottom of Blind Bay. As a description of the city and suburbs, we quote the folio wine article from the series of sketches under the head of 'New Zealand As, It .If,' which lately appeared in The A ustralasian /—Nelson and Wellington are situated on the same parallel of latitude, and they are only about two degrees of longitude apart, but it is scarcely possible to conceive anything more different than the climate of the two cities. Wellington, as I have reported, is essentially tbe place of storms; Nelson lies in a region of calms. The gales which sweep through Cook's Strait and over Wellington pass tbe entrance' of Blind Bay, at the head of which Nelson is situated,, and leave it undisturbed. The harbour is a. tidal one, and a singular piece of Nature's workmanBbip, known as tbe Boulder Bank, protects it from any sea that occasionally rolls up ...

THE AUSTRALIAN ALPS. The following is an account, from the Brisbane Courier, of a trip from the Murrumbidcee, over the Australian Alps, and across the Snowy PJains to Mount Peppercorn— which is the source of the Murrumbideee, Tumur, and Coodradigbee rivers ; a 'large tributary of tbe Murray also baa its source near this mountain, which is the Dondo of Australia: — Our party con sisted of two people accustomed to bush life, armed with rifles, a visitor from England, and old Ferguson ; a stockman, leading a pack-horse laden with a supply of provisions, a number of blankets, and other necessaries. The first nitsht we camped on tbe River Cotter, about thirty miles from the Murrumbidgee. On our arrival, a dry knoll was selected, and after hobbling the borsep, we soon bad our supper, which was very welcome; sitting before a large wood fire— the ride and the cold air, freshened by the. snow on the mountains among which we had been travelling, having given us capital appetites.

SOUTH TO WEST AUSTRALIA. — ME. ERNEST GILES'S EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

SOUTH TO WEST AUSTRALIA.— MB. ERNEST GILES'S EXPEDITION. We take the following from the South Australian Register :— Once more the dreary waste lying between the outmost western settlement in South Australia and the advanced posts of the sister colony has been crossed by an intrepid band9 of daring, explorers, who literally, not figuratively, went forth with their lives in their bands. As the result of tbeir labours, they cannot; report the existence of inland lakes, rolling prairies, wide river?, or giant timbers, but miserable wildernesses, as monotonous as they are sterile. On the afternoon of December 13 the Hon. T. Elder favoured us with a cablegram from Mr. Stockley King, of Albany, which he had just received from. Galle, notifying that Mr. Ernest Giles's exploring expedition had arrived safe at their journey's end, all. well, but after severe travelling. The intima tion was sent from West Australia by the mail steamer Pera to Galle, to come thence to Adelaide per cable, as tb...

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

GOLD AND THE GOLD-FIELDS. The Argus reported in its last monthly summary — The raining industry has been steadily pursued during the past month with fair success, and several incidents have been recorded concern ing ic in different parts which tend to show the greatness of the resources of this colony in auriferous quartz reefs, as well as to further justify tbe opinion now held by most persons here, that it is impossible to place, a limit as to the depths to which reefs may be traced in tbe future. The Clunes Quartz Company at dunec, where the Port Phillip, the New North Clunee, and other famous companies are situated, about a week ago made a most important discovery of a new reef at tbe great depth of 1,000ft. Large heavy gold was seen in the blue slate casing of the reef, and also in the solid quartz. The highest satisfaction was expressed by all classes at tbe discovery, the company being the oldest and one of the most popular in the district, and it was expected to materially- ...
