MAITLAND CHRISTMAS RACES. FIRST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

MAITLAND CHRISTMAS RACES. FIRST DAY. The Christmiui races commenced lost Monday, nil the Rutherford course, opposite the Spread Eagle. The turf was in excelled order in consequence of the rain of the preceding day, which served to make it springy, without rendering it in any way soft or muddy. Boxing day being a general holiday, there was a large assembly of spectators, principally on horseback, and not a few of the fair sex on foot, on horseback, and in vehicles, lent variety to the (cene. The advertised programme contained three races, but of these two only were run, the Welter Stakes not fill ing up. The two races, however, were well contested, and the sport, therefore, as far as it went, was good. At a quarter past twelve, tiic bell rang for the ' First Race.— The Christmas Box, of 25 sovs, with a sweep of 2 sovs. each added, for all horses that have never won a prize exceeding SO sovs., including sweep, ?takes ; heats, one mile and a half) weight for age ; the second horse to r...

SLANG. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

SLANG. In a critique of a " Dictionary of Modern Slang," Titan for September (which by the way is an excellent number, every article being thoroughly readable) introduces the subject as follows :— " 'SLANG, low, vulgar, unwritten or unathorised lan- guage. Gipsy-slang, the secret language of the Gipsies, synonymous with GIBBERISH, another Gipsy word. This word is only to be found in the dictionaries of Webster and Ogilvie. It was, perhaps, first recorded by Grose in his Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongui, 1785. SLANG, since it has been adopted as an English word, generally implies vulgar language not known or recognised, as CANT." Such is the definition given of that all-pervading vulgarity of speech, which seems to have seized, with a kind of slangomania almost every tongue in the British Islands and to many a pen of the British press. It originally means what CANT properly means, the language used by the gipsy tribes in this country, but from these wandering horse-jockey and tinker h...

CHRISTMAS FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 31 December 1859

CHIRSTMAS FESTIVIES. The Christmas festivities have gone off with us here quite as well as could have been ex- pected, especially considering that the people generally have not been quite so flush of money as upon some former occasions. Nevertheless, there appears to have been no dearth of enjoy- ment and it has been observable that the recre- ations of the people generally trip trains far as out population is concerned, have, we have reason to believe, contributed in no small degree to this end, and for this reason, if for no other, we hail their adoption as a great boon, and as a measure calculated to elevate the pur- suits of the people and repay the community with interest for the outlay incurred, — if not in a material, at least in a moral sense. Without having any particular feature to note, there were tha usual games of swarming the greasy pole, sack racing, &o., at various places in the city and suburbs, and, as far as we are   aware, all went off pleasa...
