Correspondence. THE PIGEON GROUND FOR CRICKET TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 25 April 1885

Correspondence. THE PIGEON GROUND FOR CRICKET TO THE EDITOR. Sib,— In perusing the columns of your valuable paper, I have, from time to time, noticed letters referring to the necessity of pro viding the inhabitants of Balmain with a suitable ground, whereon to indulge in that grandest and most manly of games cricket. The cricketers of Balmain have no ground on whioh they can tolerably enjoy tbe sport, with the exception of the Pigeon xteseAVOj nuu umuy a yuuu uhua-ulci uiio, - jji&c a soldier fallen,' in vainly attempting to stop a ball as it bounded over the Rocky Reserve. Yet they do not gramble, for what iB every- j bodys' business is nobody's business, and con sequently, our ' would be' cricket ground re- I mains unmolested by piok or shovel. Very likely it is owing to the amount of money I which must needs be expended in converting the Reserve into a suitable place .for cricket, that is considered. But, after all, it would not cost so much if gone about in a proper mann...

Gossiping Comer. So we are to be allowed the pleasure of sending the Russians to the right about, at least so the telegrams infer. Poor Gladstone in his dotage has once again been bamboozled. I am not sorry there is going to be a war, although I know I will But really, if they do fight, it will be_ so pleasant to read about Mr. Dalley holding Cabinet meetings and Counoils of War at Katoomba or down Govet's Leap, that I wouldn't like to be done out of tne sport. However, the rumour seems to have had a good affect on ' biz ' in the country, for during the past fortnight I've heard of several families being prepared to leave the sea side for the mountains directly wax was declared. — — — ' Honorable peace.' What do those | words mean ? I am sincerely afraid that the Frenobmen will get aB much puzzled over them as they are said to do over many other English words.

BEADMAN V. LANGLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 25 April 1885

BEADMAN V- LANGLEY. The outcome of a very close race between | the above wnateur soullers at the last Snails' Bay Regatta was the arrangement of a matoh over the Champion course for a £5 trophy, £60 a-side being put down by their respective backer. The day appointed for the match proved mopt unpropitious, a heavy southerly prevailing and occasional storms of rain en livening the proceedings. A good attendance, under the circumstances waa not to be ex ? peered, but the umpire's boat, the ' Acis ' and the I' Aginora,' the boat chartered by Mr. McSulleiv ( Bp.adman's backer), were well rstronised, and considerable interest was evinced in the event, brokers for both men bejng fjeely forthcoming. 0\ying, apparently to pome misunderstanding between tbe part ies, the arrangements with regard to the Bteamboat accommodation seem to have been slightly mixed.

Australia for the Australians. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 25 April 1885

Australia for the Australians. Those of us who are sufficiently old can well remember the days when people (who might have been honest enough, blinded as they were by unreasonable prejudice) oould not advertise for a domestic servant with out inserting the clause ' no Irish need apply.' The Government of New South Wales, or at least the 'military authori ties ' thereof, appear to be misled by a pimilnr prejudice, for they have recently proclaimed to the world ' no natives neea apply' for the post of drill instructor. This is almost too monstrous a thing to be believed, and lest I should be acoused of romanoing I clip the following advertise ment from Saturday's issue of the 8. M. Herald WANTED 12 DRILL INSTRUCTORS, for VOLUNTEER CORPS. Apply Brigade Office, 17, O'Connell-street between 10 a.m and 4 p.m. „ . .
