THE TURF IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 17 January 1870

THE TCBF IN TASMANIA. The annual races at Launceston have always been con sidered, by Australian sportsmen, a particularly en joyable meeting, the pleasure of the trip to that hos pitable township, as well as the agreeable welcome always giren to strangers gi-eatly enhancing the sport. Since the first champion race was inaugurated, now some ten years ago. the Launceston nrocramme has generally comprehended events equal to any in im portance that have been run off elsewhere, die great champion sweepstakes ever being most valuable. It would now appear that lately, like other things, the glories of the meet are about to fade, and the en thusiasm which formerly marked Tasmanian sports men, to die out. At a meeting recently held at the Launceston Hotel, of which we reproduce from the Chronicle an account below, this was more than hinted at, 'although an effort is to be made to awaken somniferous breeders of horse stock to a sense of their duly. We should imagine that whilst the Fields, t...

IMPOUNDING BILL OF 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 18 January 1870

IMPOUNDING JUl. OF 1869. ? The abrupt termination of the last session of Par liament prevented the passing of a much needed and highly important measure, 'A Bill to regulate the Impounding of Stock,' -which was introduced into the Legislative Council by the Hon. Robert Owen, the representative of the Government in that Chamber. If it had been thought advisable to make regula tions, as ubb OBaa ixoaQ ill uiu vubi; ui ubuvj lucaoiuco, giving directions for carrying out the duties of which it is principally made up, this bill might have been put into one-third its present size. It was, however, considered more satisfactory to incorporate these de tails at length in the Bill; and the arrangement of the different provisions under distinct heads will ob viate any inconvenience which its length might other wise cause, and render reference easy. An important feature in this Bill is the different spirit in which it has been framed. In the present Impounding Act, a strong bias is shown in fav...

BRAIDWOOD DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 18 January 1870

BHAIDWOOD DISTHICT. [l'BOM THE TRAVELLING KEPOU.TEH. OV THE TOWN AND 'CIIUNTIIY JOURNAX.] I coneluded my last by being the victim of misguided faith. Well, while waiting for the sun, and lying under a bush, I happened to distinguish the distant barking of two dogs. I listened attentively and I took a careful memorandum of the direction whence the faint sound came, and waited for the dawn with confidence. As it came, the waning moon was right over the marked spot, and the sun on my right hand, so I had nothing to do but keep them there, and in doing so (after surprising a number of kangaroo taking their morning meal, and bor ing through any quantity of scrub) I came on the shep herd's residence, three and a half miles from the home stead, and his dogs proved to be the owners of the bark I had heard. After assisting him at breakfast he put me on the road back again, and in due time I arrived at Mrs. Huggin's station. » Mrs. Huggin's estate comprises 5000 acres of purchased land, and 1...
