TATTERSALL'S ANNUAL RACE MEETING. Tho annual Tattersall's meeting on Noew Year's day is an event which is always looked forward to with anticipations of en joyment, fully warranted by the Oleperionce of former years. The best of these gather ings, it is stated, was on the occasion when the Duke of Edinburgh was present, but whilst tlhe recollections of that day are most pleasurable, there have been un doubtedly several meetings since, then which far surpassed, both in point of attendance and in racing interest, the meeting of 1867. [Bli wins.] RsaDnwrcri, 12.50. As early as eloven o'clock the trafirc and people along the road betokened a very good attendance, and oven at that hour careful driving. was necessary. The course is in great order, the recent rain and genial sun afterwards making it very fast. The weather is all that could be desired by all classes of sportsmen, but is too warm for those who lave to work hard. Theo Gubernatorial seat has been taste. fully carpeted, and arr...

OUR ELECTORAL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 1 January 1886
OUR ELECTORAL SYSTEM. The disclosures made before tile Com mittee of Elections and Qualifications in reference to the Young election confirmn the suspicions long held that our electoral system is sometimes worked in a very loose and munsatisfactory, not to say dishonest, manner. It was shown conclusively that 43 votes recorded for MIr. M]ackinnon had been counted for Mr. W. J. Watson, who was returned as the second member by a majority of two over the gentleman first named. It maybe taken for granted that these 43 votes were not inadvertently miscounted, and there must, therefore, have been dishonesty either upon tihe part of some of the scrutineers or deputy returning offlicers. There is reason to believe that this trick has on more occasions than-one been successfully perpetrated in New South Wales; for there have been many such suspicious victories withiin the last few years-more particularly in Sydney and suburbs. This, however, is only one phase of the abuseo of our electoral S...

SURRY UNITED V. VICTORIAN JUNIORS. The Victorians went, in for their innings at a few minutes to 12. Harvey and liuncle going to work first, to the bowling of Gosnell and Thomas. The batting was excellent in this innings, WV Johnston making 41 rapidly before he was caught by Bleveridge off Gosnell. lHe made six splendid fours, three of them being in succession. Roberts' stay was a short but a merry one. He was not much more than five minutes at the wicket be fore he was caught by Wright, but in that time he put 17 together. When the bell rang for lunch the score stood 6-17-117.. So far the Victorians have the ad, vantage, and though we should cer tainly consider the visitors to be the best with the bat, a great many of the runs were got by thelio dull fielding of the home team. Play was resumed at 2 o'clock, and Armstrong and O'llanlon engaged the bowlers up to the timeof ourgoing to press, when the score stood at 152. VICTORIAN JUNIORS.-FmesT Ismm?as.

The third edition matter will be placed on oureighlth page. Alderman Torning had a grievance at the Waterloo Coeuncil meeting last night. The dustmen, he said, had been very im pertinent to some of the ladies in the borough by refusing to grant them some little concession in the disposal of their house refuse. "Did they think," he in dignantly remarked, "that their females were like aboriginals, and worked while the men lay down P " Alderman Torning forgets that there are generally two sides to a question, women sometimes are very inconsistent, and as the contrdct says that the kerosene tins and other receptacles so much in favour for the holding of the odorous matter referred to shall be placed on the kerb line, and only be a certain weight, it is not in a dust gatherers' nature to depart much from the rule un less an...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 1 January 1886
NOTES AND COMMENTS. There are people who cut off their noses to spite their faces, and very foolish people they are. Of this kind must be the regular travellers between Adelaide and the suburbs, who, according to a tele gram in another column, have taken to ride third-class, because the Commissioner of Railways has refused to reduce the fares. Now, people who ride third class because they cannot afford to do better are objects of sympathy, and people who ride third class because they like it are objects of interest. But people who ride third class to spite a public ser vant, whose income is in no way dependent upon the receipts are mere noodles. If they lived . in Sydney, and could not get the steamer fares reduced ;would they try swimming to the North Shore. As'for the mayors of the snburban municipalities who are in stigating this exceedingly silly action, it is hardly possible to characterise their conduct fitly without using hard language. -The IMelbourne Wharf labourers have st...
A HAPPY NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 1 January 1886
A HAPPY NEW YEAR. Now Year's Day is almost a uni versal holiday all tile world over, and certainly in every country iii which thle English language is spoken, with the solitary oexception of Old England itself, the people devote this day to moerry-making. In Ireland and Scotland and Canada, in thc United States, and in all the Aus tralian colonies, it is a day of festival. Tile only peoplo who work are those whose labour ministers to the general enjoyment, and even they, busy as they are, fool some reflection of the pleasures which would be out of the reach of the community did theoy too keep holiday. Newspaper men and actors, cooks, publi cans and refreshment caterers, rail way guards and steamboat crews must work or else the public will find but dull holidays. But they find considerable consolation in the fact that they are really aiding to make the. holiday worth having, and their extra gains at such times usually help them to make their own holidiuys comfortable later on. All th...
