Early on Monday mbrningûhe-rnassesbf Cumuli began to disperse ; the sun pre- sented itself in all its lustre, and a light wind from the N. E. prevailed, furnishing all, from the swell to the commoner, with pleasing anticipations of the morrow's sport. Pedestrians, equestrians, barouches,landaus, dog carts, and vehicles of every description came pouring into the Town, making it an arena of animation and bustle. The Course was exceedingly heavy, more particularly near the three-quarter-mile post, where there were deep pools of mud and water; still the elite of the district were not deterred making their appearance upon the grand-stand by ll o'clock on Tuesday ; the dazzling beauty of the ladies and the variegated hues of their dresses, adding (as they always do) a charming effect. . > Top-boots, buckskins, Newmarkets, and Racing tiles «er...

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 August 1846

. .. <Japé ofOood Rope. THE Carysfort has brought intelligence of the rising of the Kaffirs on the Eastern side ot the Colony: The Government does not appear to have entertained any thing like a correct notion as to the strength and . number of these semi-barbarians : the con- sequence has been that great - loss and de- struction of property has taken place through thc surprisal of the frontier towns. Several detachments of military have been de- feated,> and-in one instance 4000 head of cattle werie driven away from under, the guns pf a small fortress. Subsequently, it appears, an engagement had occurred be- tween our troops and the Kaffirs, in which upwards of £00 of the latter were killed, whilst the return on our side shews only 2 killed and 14 wounded. ' The settlers haye organized«themselves into a Militia, but'more troops are required than what ¿lie Colony already has.
