THE BROWN HORSE " RICHMOND" VERSUS THE BLACK HORSE "THE BARB." (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 April 1876
THE BROWN HORSE " RICHMOND" VERSUS THE BLACK HORSE "THE BARB." S-; (From the Australasian.) A question often asked, and probably often discussed, of late is whether "the brown horse" of 1876 (Richmond) lias proved the equal of the black horse of ten years ago— The Barb. It is by no means an easy mat ter to gauge the relative merits of horses be tween which so long a space of time inter venes. The career of one is fiiiishecLu-fcha& oFthe other is just in its prime. But, al though we cannot say whether the after 'deeds of Richmond shall rival those of the Demoi^ we can at least compare their doings Hso far, though Richmond has' yet to show us ;in the Legerat Sandwick whether, against - the pick of the Ifew South Wales horses— notably the Valetta colt, and Valentia—he ?~n maintain the supremacy he so hardly won In the A.J.C. Derby. "When The Barb won Bis A.J.C. Derby, his |great Tival was "Fishhook, who turned the pbables on him in the autumn in the Leger, "le race for which wa...

AMERICAN MEAT IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 April 1876
AMERICAN MEAT IN LONDON. The new method (observes Iron) of import ing fresh-killed meat from America appears to be fairly successful. It is known as the cold dry air process, and during tlie last six weeks the weight of meat thus sent" has I amounted to about. 300 tons. _33ie cattle in tended for shipment by this method are killed: a day or two before the vessel starts, great "care-J>eiag-^±ak®a"^fco extract all= the blood. The quarters are then sewn in canvas, and" swung in a compartment of the told, in-which the temperature is kept down to' 37° By means -of tanks of ice, a'constant motion and circula tion of the air,being .maintained %• means of a large fan worked by steam. Meat thus .kept in a dry cool atmosphere for. ten or twelve days has a more marketable appearance: at the end of that time than it had when killed ; and, as a matter of fact, the consign ments reached the market in splendid condi tion—cool, dry, firm, and freefrom the slight est taint. Last Saturday the carc...

HODGSON SCHOOL. To the Editor of the Western Star. Sib,—Will you allow me a small space in your valuable paper to correct a letter, signed "Henry Jones, "in your issue of the 8th instant, in which he accuses all connected with school matters of having ungratefully treated him for all he had done. Nor, Sir, I for one am con nected with school matters, and am not aware that he was illfeeated in any way; theonly thing -that grieved-him was that we did' not go down and cany his lordship up the hill to lay oni'a site for the school. That I objected to on principle. He objected to your corres pondent's remark that, with the exception of one individual, school matters were going on swimmingly. ' Now, Sir, it is an old and true saying, where the cap fits they are sure to wear it; so 'it appears, as no one individual was named in your correspondent's letter. He says that he is not the man to punish the child for the father's sins. He puts down his name for £2 2s., and promised two pair of sa...
