South's Pinafore Company. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 26 May 1881

S South's Pinafore Company. THE above company are having really good houses in Goulburn ever since their opening night on Mon day last. The Mechanics' Hall has been.literally packed at each performance; in fact, there was hardly standing room for some of the audience. On Tuesday evening, before the performance began, the whole company sang the National Anthei ; Miss E. Ponder taking the solo part, where the soprano voice of this lady could be heard to advan tage. When the curtain rises on each evening the applause is almost deafening. the sight presented to the view reminding the spectator of nautical life; but the stage being so small, only a portion of the ship's deck is presented, although that pbr. .ti.,i is sufficient to convey an idea of the deck and the life on board a man-of-war, on account of the very faithful repres-ntations of the characters that take part. As we stated in our last,:the scenery has been painted expressly for the piece, and re presents in the background Sp...

Football.—Goulburn v. Yass. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 26 May 1881

* F'ootball.-fGoulburn v. Yass, Oe Tuesday last, Queen's Birthday, the first fifteens of the above two clubs antagouised on the ground of the latter, at Yass. Play commenced about 3 o'clock. Gooulburn won the toss for choice of goals, but had very little to choose from, as the advantage which they might have had as regards the slope of the ground was adequately balanced by the strong wind blowing across the ground, somewhat in favor of their opponents The ball up to half.timre, and indeed during nearly the whol, of, the game, remained about the centre of the ground. The forwards of the contending teams exerted every muscle to secure a point, the game being fast and fnrious; and but for the right and more even play of the Goulburn team, they must have been forced back to their goal line time after time but sheer brute strength, as Yass numbered amongst its ranks some splendid specimens of muscular Christianity. The superior form of the Goulburn team, however, began to show itself as ...

THE ratepayers of Goulburn are very reticent in their actions in regard to the WVater Sup ply question that affects all classes in this community. It would seem that each one is waiting for his neighbout to take the initia 'tory-step in calling a meeting to. consider the question; or it might be that in the opinion of many that the resolution that was carried :by *the votes of the aldermen at the special meeting of the Borough Council a short ,time since would have no effect.- But to enlighten those ratepayers holding such opinion, we may inform them (if there are such amongst us) that so long as a resolution is carried and the same bears the sign manuel of the Mayor and. the seal of the Corpora tion it has the same weight with the authorities in Sydney as though such resolution was adopted unanimously at a full meeting of the Council. This -being the case, no.. time should be lost by the ratepayers in expressing an opinion on the subject, either for or angainst. .The question to ou...
