PROGRAMMES OF PROVINCIAL MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

*-> •.£vCi m JmmL them, are content to run second to Bil larat, aa are notioed last week. "A.ud now ■ comes Geelong, with a bold offer for two days' sport on tbe banks of the Bsrwoo, having collected from the willing sports men of the locality sufficient money to reward the quality and industry of good fields of horses, whose, owners may be , disposed to travel them over the .fine 4 eotarae upon which the best thorough breds_ of this and the neighbouring colonies bave competed in bygone years. Call it provincial aa we may, the : metropolitans will have to do something better than at present they seem disposed j to attempt, before we can apply the term j aa showing an inferiority; tne plunk and sporting spirit of these provincials put to ! shame the pride of the metropolis, claim- j ing to be the head-quarters of raoing, aod therefore to give racing law to the sport ing world of Victoria.

A TURF RETROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

A TURF RETROSPECT. In the present day, only a remote and dreamy interest is felt in the history of the primitive years of the Turf in Vic toria. To sporting antiquarians may he left the task of recovering the lost records of the transactions in which a team of working bullocks formed the prise—entrance, two sheep—and no sportsman allowed to enter who was not a subscriber of at least a lamb to the fund. It is admitted that Mr. John Fawkner published the first newspaper in this colony, bat it is not yet ascertained who was the first man to "make a book" here. "Two cows to one calf" against the -favourite, and " a horse to a hen" against any of the extreme outsiders, would now give unaccustomed work to metallic*; but in the age of barter, " the root of all evil" mot being easily found, the sporting mind might have thus found relief. Yet, in fact, the active history of the Turf aa an institution in Victoria dates from the epoch when Petrel flourished, and ran four-mile heats for a £50 T...

MELBOURNE PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. "ELIJAH." [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

MELBOURNE PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. "ELI J AD." Scarce eighteen years have elapsed since Mendelssohn's oratorio of " Elijah," written txpretsly for English cats, wee first per foimid st a Birmingham musical festival, .but, cut to UaiidclB "Messiah," it ranks highest in favour. Our English lore of ora torio is something special. It is a paradox, moreover, for it excels tbe lore of alt other communities, and )\t its chief objects are of German origin, The theme of "Elijah" has doubtless aided its success. One mail withstanding the populrr will, beating down tbe effects of a common adverse opi nion, and, because of the Fpirit which is in him, becoming famous in an inverse ratio to bis opponents, is always a spectacle welcome to an Anglo-Saxon race. It leads to no reform, perhaps, and Sbakspeare's notion of the value of the popular voice will be cordially endoieed any time; but it is essentially dra matic, and admired as such. This very senti ment, worthily expressed in music, bas made " El...

DISEASES OF THE DIGESTIVE ORGANS.—CHOKING. (FROM THE NORTH BRITISH AGRICULTURIST.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 19 November 1864

DISEASES OF THE DIGESTIVE ORGANS.—CHOKING. (fEOH TBE KOBTH BK1T1BH iOBIOTIOTBtBT.) Choking is cot very frequent amongst bones. When it does occur it usually results from the hurried eating and imperfect insali ration of dry dusty food, such as bran, flour, barley dust, or chaff—articles of food whioh, on account alike of economy and safety, should never be given to horses without being first thoroughly wetted. Eggs in their shells, which were wont to be administered to pro mote condition, large bard clumsily given balls, and pieces of carrots and other roots, sometimes also plug up the tube. Siseaaee of the gullet and dilation of its ooats, audi as are apt to occur especially in crib biters, some times also induce choking. The history of the care will generally indroate the cause of ob struction, wliicb may generally be seen and felt from the outside. A bucketful of wafer or of thin gruel, and allowing the hone full liberty with his heed, will usually ensure the clearing away of the...

CULTURE AND MANUFACTURE I OF TOBACCO. (FZOX TOE B1IJUBAT TI11ES, KOr. 12.) A meeting of persons interested in tlie pro motion of a proDoeed association, under the title of the United Tobacco Growing and Manufacturing Company, was held on Friday morning. Mr. Dangerfield introduced a prospectus, from which it appeared that it was intended to establish the company with a capital of £5,000, in GOO shares of £10 each; deposit, £1 per share, to be paid on application ; £2 to lie paid on allotment, and the remainder re quired in calls of £1 each. It was proposed that Mr. Patterson, of the Springs, near bear month (who exhibited some samples of leaf of last year's growth at that place, and cigars made therefrom), should tale in hand to grow the raw material on 610 acres of land to be taken up for that purpose at la Gd. per acre.

ENTERTAINMENTS. THE ROYAL. A dramatic version of Dickens'" Cricket od the Hearth" was played at the Theatre Boysl od Sttordv night Isst, and that delightful story, which has warmed so many sympathies, and whose exquisite pathos, "Not without art, but yet to nature true," utterly shame? the affectations of the more artificial schools, was pot into a visible shape not likely to be excelled on tbe Victorian stage. It must be somewhat shock let to the "genteel" mind to find the simple incidents of very common life furnish so much interest. It seems like flying in the faee of autho rity that the principal person of Urn drama should be a low-lived ignorant old toy-maker, destitute of "high-fared" sentiments, and with no giaoeof manner to apeak of; bat for tunately the reaiitiei of homely affection and j true goodness nie found more than enough for all purports of the kind l nor was there j any attempt on Saturday night to go beyond this.
