    Brothers, barque, 369 tons, Captain Eilly, from London 14th and Plymouth 26th October, with immigrants. The Captain of the Brothers spoke the
    following vessels :—November 26. Athenian, barque, from Port Phillip, bound to London, in latitude 5-48 N" longitude 21-45 W., out 133 days, [incorrect, Athenian 113 or 114 days out, she left Port Philip 15th July] having tried the passage round Cape Horn, met with boisterous weather, and was obliged to return round the Cape of Good Hope. December 18. Lalla Rookh, from Sydney, 5th October, bound to London, out 74 days, in latitude 24.52 S., longitude 26.50 W.
    The last latitude/longitude given is different to that reported in Adelaide, and is probably incorrect in this edition, as it is presumably second hand information from Adelaide.

    The Barque "Brothers."
    To Captain Eilley.
    WE, the undersigned, having been passengers on
    board the barque Brothers, beg to congratulate you on the safe arrival of your ship, and the happy
    circumstances under which the voyage from London to
    Australia has been accomplished. During the four
    months that we have been under your care, no accident
    of any kind has happened; the health of the passengers
    has been well preserved, and a general good feeling has
    existed amongst us, which we are bound to consider as
    emanating no less from the judicious regulations for our
    government than from the disposition you have manifested to contribute all in your power to our happiness,
    and the able and skilful conduct of yourself and officers
    in the navigation of the ship. Before separating, and to
    record our high appreciation of your conduct as a seaman
    and a gentleman, we beg your acceptance of this snuff
    box, small it is true in value, but a heartfelt expression
    of our gratitude and good-will. With it we add our
    earnest and sincere desire for your future health and
    prosperity.

    say that the wreck is probably that of a
    vessel named the William Salthouse. Mr. Wollaston, who arrived here in the early part of 1850 in the barque Brothers, under Captain Robert Eilley, states that on entering Port Phillip one of the first things
    they saw were the masts of the William
    Salthouse, which had been wrecked on the Pope's Eye Shoal. . . .

    JHW made two trips on this vessel, one direct to Adelaide and the return trip via Portland, the earliest instance found of the vessel calling at Portland from Adelaide is the trip commencing Wed. 11th April 1855, which puts his account of his early life later by about 2-3 weeks. He also stated he was in Adelaide three weeks, but the White Swan sailed every fortnight, so he was probably there 2 weeks, 4 days (arrives Saturdays, departs Wednesdays)

    Journal Date 1856-11-09 (Gipsy Smith or one of his gang possibly the man who robbed JHW in July 1852 at Ravenswood)

    In 1828 at Somerset England, Smith received 6 weeks gaol for larceny (stealing handkerchiefs), by the following year had become such a problem he was transported for life and arrived Sydney Nov 1829. Sent to Hobart, he escaped with 8? others, was recaptured and sentenced to 16 years on Norfolk Island.
    Appearing early on the diggings he was again captured after several stickups at Yackandandah, but escaped whilst being taken to Castlemaine.
    Twigham, or Twiggem was hanged 11 March 1857 for shooting dead police sergeant John McNally at Ararat, a couple of months previous to recent events. Turner received 15 years, the first 2 to be in irons.
    JHW’s account of his capture, by Bill Gray is somewhat at odds with newspaper accounts, but newspapers do not agree with each other either.

    Sullivan was possibly one of the "gentlemen" who visited JHW's lonely camp 1856-11-09, was one of Gypsy Smith's gang.
    JHW thought his visitor was Gypsy Smith, either of whom are likely candidates for the robbery of the 13 year old JHW at Ravenswood.
    In fact Gypsy Smith (William Sydenham Smith, alias William Turner) and William Twigham had been captured a week or two earlier, about Mon 20th or 27th October 1856, (as recounted later by a future mate, Bill Gray) so these "gentlemen" were probably the remnants of his gang, which had been active around Mt. Moliagul for two months.
    Sullivan, "the Maungatapu Murderer" and strangler, lived for a while at Wedderburn. In N.Z. he choked to death an old man, Jimmy Butler he met on the road to Nelson. Near Nelson his gang murdered 4 men and a passing surveyor named Dobson, who only saw them in the area, so there would be no witnesses.
    A third member of Gipsy’s gang was “German Jack”.
    The woman who ran the the hut at Ararat, was with them when captured.

    Fire at East Collingwood. — At about half-past six o'clock, on Thursday, a fire broke out in Glasgow-street, East Collingwood, and destroyed two small dwellings, constructed of wood, owned and occupied by W. Merson. Some slight damage was done to the two adjoining cottages, but the prompt arrival of the local fire brigade stopped all further danger. The fire is presumed to have originated accidentally. The property destroyed was insured in the Imperial Fire Office for £200.

    The Sacred Concert, yesterday evening, at the Collins-street Independent Church, at tracted one of the largest audiences which have ever assembled within the building. The directors wisely chose a night on which there was nothing else of a special character to at tract the amusement-loving public, and they were rewarded by an amount of patronage which must result in supplementing largely the funds of the church, to which we understand the proceeds of the entertainment are to be applied. The principal performers were Miss Fanny Reeves, Miss Lambert, Miss Pitts, Mrs W. Walker, Mr C. Blanchard, and a gentleman tenor whose name did not appear upon the bills, but who has frequently sung sacred music with success in this city. The programme consisted of selections from the "Messiah." Creation," "Elijah," "Hymn of Praise," and other works, in which the solos were sustained by the artistes mentioned, and the choral ports by a chorus of about a hundred from the different musical societies. Mr John Russell was the conductor. The prominent feature of the evening was the opening of the new organ, which is a very superior instrument, built by Hill and Son, of London, and erected in the church by Mr Fincham. Mr David Lee acted as organist, and exhibited the powers of the instrument to the greatest advantage in selections from Beethoven, Handel, Bach, &c. One remarkable peculiarity about the organ is that the bellows are worked by hydraulic power, supplied by pressure of the Yan Yean. This part of the apparatus worked very satisfactorily last evening.


    JHW was in the chorus, the anonymous tenor was Edwin Exon.

    The Mutual Improvement Societies' Union held its sixth half-yearly sessional meeting on Monday evening, in the Congregational hall, Russell-Street. The attendance was very large, notwithstanding the counter attraction in the Town-hall. Mr. R. Hodgson, the president, occupied the chair. The Emerald-hill Christian Association, and the St. James's Mutual Improvement Society, were admitted to the union. The prospectus of a magazine, in connexion with the union, was distributed to the members present, and briefly referred to by the chairman, after which Mr. H. Parish, of the St. James's Society, read an essay upon "The Land We Live In." Considerable diversity of opinion was expressed in the discussion which ensued, and in which Messrs. Harker, Brain, J. H. Reid, Watmuff, J. H. Gowdie, Waite, Mackey, and Kennedy took part; but the essay, upon the whole, was pronounced a decided success. After the usual votes of thanks, the proceedings terminated.

    The members of the Metropolitan Liedertafel gave one of their social entertainments for gentlemen only at the Criterion hall, in Collins street, last night. The place was densely crowded. The part singing by the members of the Metropolitan Liedertafel, under the direction of Mr. Herz, was most praiseworthy. Mr. Watmuff, a member of the society, sang a couple of tenor solos with very good effect, and might have repeated one of them, namely, "Angels listen when she speaks," if he had chosen to accept the long continued applause as a hint for an encore.

    A lecture on " Church music " was delivered last night in Clarendon-street Presbyterian Church, Emerald-hill, by the Rev. Charles Strong. The lecture was beautifully illustrated by the combined choirs of the Clarendon-street Church and the Scots'

    Church, under the leadership of Mr. J. R. Edeson. Several hymn tunes and chants were very effectively rendered. The anthem

    from Spohr's "Crucifixion," "As pants the hart," and the quartett from Stern- dale Bennet's "Woman of Samaria," " God is a Spirit," were sung with much feeling, and in first-class style. In the latter piece Madame Steinbach, Miss Jukes, and Messrs. Juniper and Watmuff deserve special praise. The object of the lecture was to create a greater interest in the cultivation of sacred music in the Presbyterian Church services. The lecture and illustrations seemed to be appreciated by the audience.

    THE "CREATION." Haydn's oratorio bearing the above title was produced at the Royal Princess Theatre last evening by the choir of the Forest street Wesleyan Church, assisted by some fifteen other Vocalists, the instrumental portion being provided by Monaghan's band, numbering some twenty performers. Mr. H. J. King was the Conductor. The audience was not very numerous, and it is questionable if a profit will accrue. This is to be regretted, as it will prove a discouragement to the promoters, who, while seeking to raise money for a certain object, contribute towards cultivating a taste for the highest class of music. The local talent, both vocal and instrumental, mustered last evening, reflected credit on our city, and gave evidence that we are capable of producing a classical composition at least creditably. Hitches and defects of a minor character no doubt existed and were noticeable, but were pardonable under all the circumstances. The band, an admirable combination, have not been accustomed to such work as they had to perform last evening, and consequently performed at a disadvantage by reason of a want of perfect sympathy with the singers. This does not imply any shortcoming, but rather illustrates the necessity of constant practice under similar conditions. When the band had not to accompany the singers, the instrumentation was all that could he desired. Mr. King's arrangements for the chorus (some fifty odd strong) were a decided improvement on former occasions, and assisted in throwing the voices better into the auditorium, and not allowing them to be lost on the stage. With the object of more effectively rendering the soIos of the oratorios the services of three professionals were retained, viz., Miss Bessie Pitts, soprano; Mr. Lamble, bass and Mr. Watmuff, tenor. With the exception of Mr. Lamble, however, importation could not be deemed of such great excellence as to throw some of our local leading soloists far into the shade. Miss Pitts has a clear and sweet voice of considerable cultivation and range, but her want of sustaining power had a detrimental effect. This lady has had considerable experience in oratorio music, so she was perfectly at her ease. Mr. Watmuff is a light tenor, and sang his music in good tune, but slightly out of time once or twice. Mr. Lamble was in capital voice, and sang with power and expression; in the upper notes his voice was wonderfully soft, and every effort was listened to with marked pleasure, in fact his singing was the feature of the evening. As the title of the oratorio suggests, the music is intended to illustrate the various stages of the creation of the world and its inhabitants, and opens with an instrumental representation of chaos, each succeeding air and chorus marking the successive stages, and closes with a chorus of all the created, "Sing the Lord ye voices all." Miss Pitts was fairly successful in most of her solos, more especially in "With Verdure Clad," and "On mighty pens." Mr. Lamble's whole performance was good, but his "Rolling in foaming billows" flowed with most appropriate smoothness. Mr. Watmuff was most successful in "In native worth." In the duets and trios the voices of the principals blended very sweetly, each apparently, singing better than when alone. The choruses were, as a whole, very steady, but the "Heavens are telling" was sung with the most precision and beat effect. The closing chorus, "Sing the Lord, ye voices all," was very creditably given, having regard to the difficult nature of the music. Mr. King, as conductor, kept his band and chorus well together and in hand, and is to be congratulated on the result, for whatever meed of success was attained is due to his guidance and training.
    This performance is briefly mentioned in an article dated 17 May 1890 http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article88984514

    THE "CREATION,"—The great attraction to morrow in tho form of public amusements will be the performance in the evening of Haydn's oratorio "The Creation," at the Royal Prin cess Theatre. Considerable preparations have been made, and a large amount of expense en tailed, so that the work may be placed before the public in a manner worthy of its great repu tation, and to do this involves the engagement of professional vocalists. The management many weeks ago secured the services of three of the leading oratorio singers in Melbourne, who are accustomed to perform at the Melbourne Philharmonic Society's concerts at the Town Hall, and their names are a sufficient guarantee that the soli music will be faithfully interpreted Miss Bessie Pitts is the soprano, Herr Watmuff the tenori, and Mr S. Lamble the basso. There will be a full chorus, and a large orchestra con sisting of Monaghan's Exhibition Band, and the whole performance will be under the couductor ship of Mr. H. J. King. In order to prevent the possibility of mistakes, the principal vocalists are to come up from Melbourne this evening and a full rehearsal will be held at the theatre to-morrow morning, at 10 o'clock. There is sure to be a crowded house, judging by the large number of tickets that have been disposed of and, therefore, those intending to be present should secure their seats immediately.

Thinking it was a dog which had been there the night before he was about to give it a kick, when he was astonished to hear the cry of an infant. He took the child, which was wrapped in a a plaid shawl and proved to be about two week's old, into his house, and provided for, it until a nurse had been obtained. On the following day the infant was brought before Mr. Falon, J.P., at the St. Kilda Police Court as an abandoned child, and remanded. No trace of the mother has as yet been discovered.

    We have now much pleasure in announcing the names of the musical artistes who will appear at the concert to be given by the committee of the Town Band Association at the Shire hall on Friday the 24th inst. Of the vocalists, Mrs J. H. Watmuff heads the list. This lady will be at once identified as the charming soprana singer whose maiden name was Miss Bessie Pitts, a leading member of the last Lyster Opera Company. Miss Pitts sang all through that last and most successful season of Italian Opera in Melbourne, and her performance of the delightful music assigned to the Page in Verdi's great work "Un Ballo in Maschera" was received with great admiration. Soon after that opera season she married Mr J. H. Watmuff, of the Railway Accountants' Department, and has not appeared in character pieces since. But she sings with great applause in concert and oratorio in Melbourne, Ballarat and Sandhurst. The name of Signor Paladini in the list will revive the recollection of so many evenings enjoyment by those who have heard him at the opera and other high-class entertainments in Melbourne that we need not further introduce him. We can inform those who have not heard him that he is a charming tenor of peculiar sweetness. He will sing altogether, in Italian, two songs and a duett with Mrs Watmuff. He will not sing in English. We mention this because it is said of him that he is very anxious to be able to sing in this language. He has tried it several times but without much success. Mr W. H. Croker, an amateur tenor of high repute at Melbourne Leidertafel concerts, will sing two songs and a duet with Mrs Watmuff. Mr Arthur Watts, a fine baritone singer of highly finished taste, and style, will sing two songs. Mrs Coster will play two pianoforte solos and several of the accompaniments of the songs, and duetts. Some of these are of themselves elaborate compositions. We think that the committee, in organizing this performance of high-class music, have taken a step which will be of great advantage to the young people of the district, many of whom are studying-music, by forming a correct taste and showing them a standard of excellence to which they should strive to attain.

    On St. Patrick's night a very enjoyable concert, in aid S.S. Peter and Paul's school was held in the South Melbourne Town Hall. When we mention that Miss Josephine O'Brien, Miss Mary O'Brien, Miss Bessie Pitts, Miss Sophia Jones, Signor Paladini, and Messrs. J. H. Watmuff, S. Willis and T. B. Browning contributed songs and Irish melodies it goes almost without saying that the affair was a great success. Miss Josephine and Miss Mary O'Brien, who were both in splendid voice, rendered the Irish Ballads set down against their names with much pathos, and Signor Zelman, who acted as conductor, was deservedly credited with having contributed, in a great measure to the success of the entertainment.

    ARRIVAL OF THE R.M.S. GARONNE.

    The Orient Company's R.M.S Garonne from London via Adelaide and Melbourne, entered the Heads, at 4 p.m. yesterday, and came up to the Company's mooring in Neutral Bay. Launches were attendance, and those of the passengers who wished to leave the ship were taken ashore and landed, at the Circular Quay. The Garonne has on this occasion made one of her most successful passages. She left London with a full cargo of general merchandise, besides 353 passengers, the large majority of the latter as usual being for this port. The health rate was good throughout but three deaths occurred, two from phthisis and one from drowning, the latter being a case of suicide, Mrs. A. H. Devin, a second saloon passenger for this port died on the 1st ultimo, a Mr. R. D. Wood, a saloon passenger for Adelaide, on the 4th instant. The suicide was that of James Silver, [all other reports say John Silver] a steerage passenger, who jumped overboard on the 1st instant, when the vessel was in the Indian Ocean. Everything was done to save him, boats being lowered, and lifebuoys thrown to him, but without avail, and after two hours' searching the ship continued on her course. Socially, the voyage was a marked success and nothing in the shape of a complaint was heard from start to finish. Indeed, the passengers were so satisfied that before they separated they presented an address to Captain White, in which they spoke of the voyage as a prosperous and most successful one, and of "their entire satisfaction with every arrangement for their comfort and safety which had been made by the Orient Company, and more especially their sense of the obligation to Captain White, for his unfailing courtesy and endless personal exertions to promote their enjoyment," in which he was ably supported by his staff. Mr. H. W. Livett is chief officer, Mr. Lawrie chief engineer and Dr. Browne surgeon, Mr. T. V. Dinnis is purser, and Mr. Doyle chief steward. The Garonne left Tilbury Docks at 7.30 a.m. on September 30, and arrived at Plymouth on October 1 at 8.23 a.m. After embarking passengers she sailed at noon, and had fine weather to Naples, which was reached on October 8. The Garonne left again at 5 p.m., arriving at Port Said on the 12th at noon, when the ship coaled and embarked 180 tons fruit. Proceeded through the canal, and arrived at Suez at 4.30 p.m. on the 14th. After taking in mails (389 bags and 3 packages), she again left at 6.15 p.m., passed Perim at 10.15 p.m. on the 18th, and experienced fine weather to Diego Garcia, which was reached on the 26th. Landed cargo and coaled, leaving the following day for Adelaide. Strong trades and head winds were experienced to Breaksea Island, which was passed at midnight on 7th November; strong easterly gale thence to within 24 hours of Adelaide. Passed Cape Borda at 6.30 a.m., and arrived on the Semaphore at 3 p.m. on the 11th November. Discharged cargo and passengers, leaving at 6.20 a.m. on the 12th. Passed Cape Willoughby at noon, with fresh south easterly wind and fine weather. Cape Northumberland was abeam at 4.51 a.m. on the 13th, Cape Otway at 4.55 p.m. on the 14th and Port Phillip Heads were entered at 11 p.m. same day. After landing mails, passengers, and cargo, the Garonne sailed for Sydney at 3.20 p.m. on the 16th, cleared Port Phillip Heads at 6.50 p.m., and had a strong southerly wind and clear weather to Cape Schanck, and moderate winds and fine weather thence to port. The Garonne arrives in capital order throughout.

    Review of first of Chitty's "Popular Entertainments"


    Mrs. Watmuff gave an admirable interpretation of Beware, and to a
    rapturous encore she responded with
    a spirited rendering of "The cows are
    in the corn." Her interpretation of
    Bishop's fine ballad, "Lo, here the
    gentle lark," was not, however, up to
    her usual high standard of vocalism.
    With Mr. Lee, she took part in the
    pretty duet, "Maying" but we have
    heard them sing it in a much more
    effective manner.

    The last of the first series of Popular
    Shilling Concerts was given on Saturday
    evening, 24th instant. The attendance
    was large, considering the coldness of the
    weather. Mesdames Watmuff, M'Fadzean,
    and W. S. Irving. andl Messrs. Kirkwood
    Lee. Crowther and J. G. Sedding appeared with the same success as at the
    previous concerts. Mr. Sedding was
    uproariously encored for his two songs.
    Miss Ernst made her first appearance at
    these concerts, and met with a highly
    flattering reception, which she justified by
    her tasteful singing of Braga's "Serenade," in which she was greatly assisted
    by the flute obligato by Mr. Crowther.
    Mr. Chitty has been prevailed upon by
    a number of the regular patrons of the
    Popular Shilling Concerts to give another
    series, which he hopes will be commenced
    about the middle of August. It is his
    desire to be in a position to change the
    performers as well as the program for

    The second subscription concert of the Victorian Railways Musical Society was given last night in the hall of the Melbourne Athenæum, with a large audience of ladies and gentlemen present. We noticed the first of these performances, which was distinguished mostly for the display of amateur talent. Last night, and on their second appearance, the members of the choir sang many part songs in the manner of the male choirs of the well-known liedertafels belonging to Melbourne. The entertainment was enriched—and properly so—by the employment of the talents of many ladies and gentlemen who are now, or used to be, closely connected with public business in music. Miss Bessie Pitts, Miss Ida Osborne, Mr. Armes Beaumont, Mr. Alberto Zelman, Mr. A. L. Haslam, and Mr. Joseph Pfleger were all engaged at this concert to give good musical tone to the performance of the advertised programme. Te proceedings were well managed by the directors, and the numerous audience was well satisfied.

    THE second concert of the Victorian Railways Musical Society was held in the Athenaeum Hall on Tuesday evening, before a very large audience. The programme opened with a part song, which was well rendered by the society. Then followed songs by Miss Ida Osborne, Mr. Armes Beaumont and Miss Bessie Pitts, and a zither solo by Mr. Joseph Pfleger, all being given in a most enjoyable manner by the different performers. The second part of the programme also included part songs by the society, the "Dear Old Town" being loudly encored. Miss Ida Osborne gave a charming rendering of "Daddy," which was honoured with an encore, also Mr. Armes Beaumont's song, "The Garonne," the singer's reappearance being enthusiastically demanded. Mr. Pfleger's zither solo had to be repeated, and the other numbers of the second part met with due approbation. Signor A. Zelman and Mr. A. L. Haslam ably performed their duties as accompanists.
