AT THE FOOTBALL MATCH. &nbsp; There are no more popular out-door gatherings in winter time than those which take place on Saturday afternoons in Richmond-paddock to witness the football strife which on such occasions is in progress there. These contests attract an attendance which includes all classes, and sometimes numbers as many as 10,000 persons. The winter fashions displayed by ladies always find their full exemplification here, and many such an interesting group can be witnessed as that which our artist has depicted in our front engraving.

THE CHINESE DIFFICULTY IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 August 1877
THE CHINESE DIFFICULTY IN QUEENSLAND. Thb Brisbane correspondent of The Argus, writing on June 23, says of this subject :— With respect to tbe Chinese difficulty, the dilemma in which tbe Government had been placed by tbe tenor of Lord Carnarvon's despatch, explaining bis reason! for disallowing tbe Gold-fields Amendment Act, passed last Bession specially to prevent tbe iullox of Chinese, appeared one from which extrication would be almost impossible. Nothing else was looked for but a sort of mild defiance— Mr. Doualasa influence insuring the mildness— to 'Downing-street,' and a re-enactment of a measure almost identical with the one objected to. The prospect was not one to be regarded with complacency, because defiance to Downing-street is one of those cries which can be readily worked up into noisy popularity by dexterous handling of the Irinh element and of the young colonials. A Ministry disposed to hold office for office' sake could carry on very comfortably with a quarrel with...
