THE AUSTRALASIAN SKETCHER SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1876. WILL REPRESENTATIVE INSTITUTIONS PROVE A FAILURE? [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1876. WILL REPRESENTATIVE INSTITUTIONS PROVE A FAILURE? A man who had ventured to ask this question twenty or thirty years ago would ' have been regarded as a gloomy cynic or a miserable pessimist, whose opinions and apprehensions were of no concern to any well-regulated mind. Doubt of the wisdom and permanency of repre sentative institutions would have ' seemed despair of humanity. It was from the working of representative institutions that almost all men of liberal ideas expected every improvement in the condition of the human race. To perfect and complete these institutions, to extend the range of their influence, was viewed as the highest duty of the reformer and the philanthropist. It was, of course, admitted that there were low, uneducated races, for whom, in their present condition, representative institutions were not adapted. But this was the fault of the people them selves, whose duty it was as rapidly as 'possible to train and educate themselves, so ...

FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

FIJI. The estimates of revenue and expenditure for the fourrhontha ending December 31 have been laid before the Legislative Coun cil, and published in the Royal Gazette. ..The Governor, states that, tbe revenue has fallen very far short of Sir Hercules 'Robin- fsons estimate, while, on the other hand, the expenditure has much exceeded what was anticipated. Notwithstanding the strong desire of Sir Arthur Gordon to devote the proceeds of the loan from the Imperial Government exclusively to the payment of debt and the construction of public works, he has been com pelled to apply a portion of it to meet the claims of ordinary expenditure. The fact that tbe estimate of receipts has not been realised is believed in part to be due to tbe terrible visitation from which the colony has suffered, but it is to be remarked that the chief deficiency is. not in native-tuxes, but in customs duties — a rf suit which may be attributed to a somewhat too sanguine anticipation of the effect of tbe Custo...

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

Very little business was done in Parliament after the division on the financial resolutions of the Government. The Pastoral Assessments Bill was carried, the Opposition not venturing to incur the odium of obstructing it ; and another measure, to continue the collection of tolls, was also allowed to become law. ' That having been done, Par liament adjourned for a fortnight for the holidays. On both sides there seemed to be an, indisposition to take steps that might 'have' the effect of precipitating the conflict a ontrance that was threatened. The Opposition seemed unwilling to take the course of erecting the 'stone wall' on which Mr. Berry and his followers have lavished so much rhetoric, fearing that the effect of such obstruction to busi ness might be to produce a strong demonstration of public feeling that would soon sweep the Opposition and' its stone wall away to destruction. Oil the other hand; the Govern ment was evidently desirous of leaving to the other side the initiative ...

A DUNEDIN MERCHANT'S HOUSE: THE CAMP, THE RESIDENCE OF MR. W. J. M. LARNACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

A DUNEDIN MERCHANT'S HOUSE: THE CAMP, THE RESIDENCE OF MR. W. J. M. LARNACH. Erected on a site so high that Dunedin, 11 miles distant, most of its suburbs, and other places miles beyond, are distinctly visible, is tbe Camp, the subject of our sketch, and one of the finest residences in Otago. It is surrounded by lovely scenery, of which an engraving the size of our illustration can necessarily give but a very faint idea. Westward is tbe bay, studded with islands rich in everlasting verdure. Still farther away, in the same direction, is progressive, romantically situated Dunedin.. Mountain ranges — the Maungatua and Saddle-hill amongst them — form a background striking and picturesque. The far distant FlagBtaff stands out grandly in the north ; Mount Cargill as prominently in the west. Still more distant are the Pal merdton-hills, looking boldly but gloomily in shade, with Mount Royal and the Horse Ranges in the same neighbourhood. The eje, as it ranges northward, discovers some exce...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

Few Year's Day Meeting of the Victoria Racing Club, with the re-establishment of the Champion Stakes in the programme of the racing, has been the feature of the month s sporting history. The meeting was very successful. and the number present was estimated at 30,000. The large^ majority of visitors travelled by train, but the road was by no meanB deserted. There were many private car nages, and three or four four-in-hands. The grand stand was not so crowded as had been anticipated, but still was comparatively well filled. On the hill the attendance was large, and upon the flat also there was a goodly muster. Punctually at half-past 12 o'clock the horses were marshalled at the poBt for the Hurdle Race, with which the day's sport commenced. Eleven howes Btarted, and of these Welsh man and Larrikin wero the most fancied. The winner was fa*™y\suPPorted by a certain section, principally in doubles, with All Fouw for the Steeplechase.

The Theatres. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 22 January 1876

At the theatres, of course, the event of the month has been the production of the Christmas pantomimes. That at the Royal is named ' A Froggee Would a Wooing Go ; or, Harlequin AlKohol, the Bad Dunn, the Pretty Princess, and the Fairy of the Dancing Water,' and that at the Opera-house ia 'Fortunatus and the Magic1 Purse and; Wishing Cap ; or, Little King Pippin.' The former is by the late Mr. W. Brough, Mr. Garnet Walch adapting it to local requirements, and the latter is by Mr. E. L. Blanchard, Mr. Zelman arranging the music so as to suit the capabili ties of the company of the Opera-house. The following notice of the pantomimes is by 'Tahite,' the theatrical critic of The Australasian: — I. do not think the plot of a pantomime; — or what we now-a-days call a pantomime — is of much importance. The story is merely an excuse for gay dresses, pretty music, and new scenery. And yet both of them have plots, as a matter of course ;and the opening of tbe Royal piece haB- a certain quality...

Sketches with Pencil ON THE ROAD TO THE PALMER : AN ATTACK BY BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 February 1876

OK THE BOAD TO THE FjLLMEB. : A2f ATTACK BY BLACKS. Life at the Palmer diggings, North Queensland, and on the road to them, is attended with a peril of a kind different from any that ever beset digging life in these southern colo nies, owing to the hostility and murderous tendencies of the natives. The blacks of North Queensland are of a very fierce character, and there appears to be good ground for imputing cannibal practices to them. They seem to resent the presence of the diggers as an invasion of their territory, and lose no opportunity of attacking straggling parties. They have either an especial dislike to Chinese, or, what is more likely, they rely on the timidity and pacific spirit of John Chinaman to render him a safe and easy victim. It is certain that they have inspired the Chinese with a terrible dread, and the sight of one or two armed natives is sufficient to instil a panic into a large party of Chinese. So great are the fears entertained that a little while ago it was...

Sketches with Pen IN THE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 19 February 1876

IN THB ASSEMBLY. Ik, illustration of our engraving of the Assembly during the conflict occasioned by the obstructive attitude of the Opposition, we quote from Tlie Australasian. the following sketch of the nature of the proceedings as they presented themselves to a visitor to the galleries on February 2, the occasion of Sir James M'Calloch giving notice of his intention to move the new standing order : — Every one knows Mr. Mackay to be a gentleman of a kindly disposition — one who would not in bis cool moments say any thing that might be considered harsh or offensive concerning any man or body of men. But we regret to say that sometimeB, in the excitement of the moment, he gives utterance to state ments which he must afterwards regret. For iostauce, on Wed* nesday evening, he said that while listening to the remarks pro* ceeding from the Opposition benches he had almost imagined that he was in the refractory ward of the Kew Asylum'. Now, why should he insult the unfortunate inmates...
