PENRITH. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
PENKITH. Friday. It was raining all last night. The Nepean is more than fourteen feet above high water mark at the bridge, and is still rising. Heavy showers have been falling all morning, and the ground is completely saturated. At South Creek the water is over the road bridge. At the present hour a flood is not apprehended, but much depends upon the southern Goulburn waters. The existing rise in the Nepean is caused by local waters, and the freshing of the Warragamba from Hartley rains. Monday. There was no rain here yesterday, and only ono sharp shower this morning. The heavy gusts of wind that have been blowing have been detrimental to the maize crops. Tho Nepean has fallen so far that the piles of the old bridge are visible. Tuesday. There has been a great fresh in the Nepean since morning, caused by the up-country waters, and it is now twenty-one feet above high water level, and rising. Weather fine.

English Sporting Items. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
English. Sporting Items. THE Mail brings us little news ; for who expects people to be racing or steeplechasing, or rowing, or cricketing, or shooting pigeons at Christmas tide ; and the first paper of the file justlreceived is dated December 25th. "While tho sports of tho Spring, Summer, and Autumn were neglected during the time when British sportsmen take a spell, there was fine open weather; so that the gentle men of tho far north couldn't even indulge their pen c/tanf for" curling ; " and the only thing done was some coursing, for which tho people of this fair land do not much care. Failing any races to write about, English turf scribes had already commenced picking winners of great races ; and wo observe that, in the The Field, the Derby blue riband was given in prospectu to Alario or Kingcraft-the former ono of Count Lagrange's lot, and trained by Tom Jennings who made tilings so hot with Gladiateur. The samo prophetic soul pins his faith on Sunshine for the Oaks. The latest h...

MEN OF THE AGrE. "«a nv DIOCfltAPHIES OF EMINENT PERSONAGES j A B ' TrarrTBK EXPRESSLY FOB THIS JOURNAL. V- John Robertson. TUB history of Mr. Robertson's puhlio life is /miliar to tho people of Now South Wales. For L]f a generation his career has hoon before them in ?ho chief places of tho colony. Those who have Latched the" progress of public events during that time will, doubtless, he glad to know something of tho earlier lifo of one who has homo BO large a part in those events ; and to many who have but recently come to the colony a brief sketch of Mr. Robertson's public career may be acceptable. jlr. Robertson was born on the loth October, 1816 at tho villago of Bow, in Essex, a few miles to thoeastward of London. At that time Bow was as distinct from tho metropolis as tho villago of Canter bury is from Sydney, and was surrounded by pleasant gardens and fiords.

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. To thc Editor of thc Town and Country Journal. Sir,-Ido not think thatyourcorrespondent, "Hound Arm," in your issue of last Saturday, does justice to our Eleven that went to Melbourne this season. Any i'erson would imagine, by reading his articlo, that our men had not sufficient practico together, and that our failure was in consequence thereof. Now, I can confidently assert that, as far as our batting wont, it was, token as a whole, the very best that we have had for some time. I saw our men daily in their practice, and I am quite sure that, with ono or two exceptions, we could not havo sent a better batting team ; and as regards our not having played once together interf erin g with our success, that could not have altered the result, because, if you will only refer to the account of the match, you will there find that our fielding was very highly spoken of, and that Oliver and Lawrence wore particularly mentioned. Twopenny comes in for a largo sha...
To the Editor of the Town and Country Journal. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870
To thc Editor of thc Town and Country Journal. Sil',-In last week's issue of your journal your cor respondent "Bound Arni," bas made somo remarks in whick he mentions my name, and about which, I feel it my duty to oiler an explanation. I do not desire to find fault with j'our correspondent, for ho has, no doubt, stated only what he heard!; but if praise be awarded it is right that it be given to whom it is due. Now, Sir, I most emphatically deny that Mr. Park gave mo any luncheon ticket, or that "but for him I should have been left out." On tho first day of the match, not having a ticket, I did not go to the lunch provided for tho team, and on the other days I was present at lunch upon invitation from members of tho Melbourne Club, the secretary, Mr. Handfield, having kindly given me tho requisite cards. I have no desire to complain, but may state that for any attention I received, I was indebted, not to officials of our associa tion, but to gentlemen of the M.C.C., as before referr...

THE Report of tho Provisional Committee of thc Land and Pastoral Association, read on Thursday last, at a meeting convened for the purpose, and the speech of the chairman of that committee, Mr. T. S. Mort, in expla nation of it, indicate the commencement of a movement that may bo productive of important results.

The committee being under tho impression that such limitation of their aims had been contemplated, found themselves, on consideration, " wholly incapable, under thc present constitution of their body, of dealing with the", interests over which they were expected to watch, in such a manner ns would ensuro public confidence and render their labours effec...
