TnIe "DAY, FRIDAY. The patrons of the turf bad another fine day for the races at Randwick on Friday, and a considerable number of people put in an appearance` in the saddling-paddock and on the course.. The "off'" day of meeting is always a dull one, and Friday was not an exception to the rule, albeit the attendance, as before remarked, was rather numerous. There was also a fair eprinklingof.ladies present. on the grand-stand and= in carriages skirting. tho:ecourse. The sport was not of such a high quality asthat on; the Derby and Metrbpolitan :daye-the;races, with the exception of the, Sydney Handicap, being won; easily.

FATA MORGANA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 September 1868

FATA MORGANA. (3"om tihe Standard.) SEEING is believing, according to the popular philosophy. But believing is different from knowing. The very air plays its tricks with us, and the medium through which we are compelled to exercise the faculty of vision sometimes creates phantasmagoria instead of transmitting correct impressions. The mirage of the desert cheats the eye of the. camel, and the poor animal rushes headlong to slake its thirst where there is nothing but sand. Moore has sung in Lalla Rookh Who that 'mid the desert's heat Sees the waters fade away, Would not rather die than meet' Streams again as false as they i? Sir Samuel Baker tells the tale of the Egyptian cohort which refused to obey its experienced guide, and having slaughtered hinm for his very faithfulness, pushed on through the trackless sand, pursuing the tempting waters which ever seemed in ad vance but which never were overtaken. Group after group of frenzied men fell ex hausted on the arid soil, and the bleach...

The day was essentially a bad one for,the bookmakers, as almost every one of them, had a book against naming the winner, and every one'gotE" touched "'for the amount of his bool, as all the favourites won.

RANDWICK SPRING RACE MEETING. SECOND DAY, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 September 1868

RANDWICK SPRING RACE MEETING. (Froet the S. JM. Herald.) SECOND DAY, THURISDAY, SEPTEMBIIE 10. DELlou1IPUL weather, excellent sport, and a very fair attendance of the public contributed to render the day.a very pleasant one indeed. The chief drawback, and by no means a small one, to the gene ral enjoyment was the dust; and, indeed, it is to be regretted that some means are not available for abating that nuisance, and enabling people to visit the Randwick course without being forced to swallow prematurely the peck of, dirt which, according to tradition, every man has to dispose of in his life time. The course was more crowded than it was on Saturday, and in. the early part of the afternoon when the liberated clerks had come in there could nothave been less than six thousand persons present. Of course, all the rank and fashion of Sydney were there. His Excellency the Governor drove on the ground before the first race started, and remained until after the Metropolitan Handicap was deci...

Colonial Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 September 1868

Colonial Extracts.   THE FIRST CHAPTER OF A CHILD'S       LIFE.—At the Yass police court last Wed- nesday, the day on which a man some fifty- five or sixty years of age, and who was once a sworn guardian of life and property in this very district, was convicted of stealing some trifling articles from a Chinaman, and in the same dock where he received his sen- tence, a little female child, about seven years of age, and who looked no older than her years, was placed on a charge of having no fixed place of abode. Childish in appear- ance, she had yet a history of her own, a dark and unpromising page to commence life with. Surely it was not a necessary precaution against escape to place her in such durance vile. Although spoken of as to her erratic habits, two policemen guarded the only road of exit from the court. There was something revolting to pitying humanity to see a baby defendant caged up to answer a charge that it is probable ...
