GREAT WESTERN STEEPLECHASE MEETING. From the "Hamilton Spectator." [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 24 May 1861
GREAT WESTERNN STEEPLECHASE MEETING. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; From the " Hamilton Spectator.' We reached Coleraine, which, we may briefly observe, appears to us to be nothiug more than a coal pit. Riches there. Sir ! When those extraordinary-looking hills, which appear so geologically tempting all around &nbsp; the focus of yesterday's sport, shall have been peeped into, we think we shall hear some ac- count that coals are reduced in price, or, as Mrs. Partington would express it, "fell." &nbsp; Arriving at Payne's, there was no mistake about there being something up. Hard up as &nbsp; we were for a thimblefull of refreshment, the cry of "they're off," sent us off too ; and after running across a paddock or two, listen- ing by the way to the c ommencement of a lecture by an interesting feminine upon the miseries of ''servin gals" generally, we &nbsp; found ourselves in time to witness the weigh- ing for the first event of the day. ...
