It appears ihat on his arrival in Hobart Town keoroceededtb the Rock HoteL Elizabeth street, where he remained about a fortnight, and at the expiration of that time left the house without a word of explanation, leaving a bos behind which evidently contained something weighty.

Negroes and the Chinese.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 22 January 1870
SATUHDAY, JANUARY 21, 1870, ' L'uomme qdi hit' — the grinning man, as it is now striotly interpreted — might find abundant excuse for the indulgence of his risible propensities in the manner in which the political Constitution which it took so many years to win, uud the electoral law which was the trophy of so many a hard fought battle, are being travestied and ridi culed in the present mock election proceedings at Liverpool Plains.. We were enabled to announce in yesterday's Evening flews that the late sham candidate — 5Ir. Bennett — had retired 'in favour of Mr. Cowper' — a step which was certainly indicative of returning good sense on his part, especially as he is said to be a candidate for official life in the capacity of a town postman. Jiut, this mock candidate having thrown up the game which he had, no doubt, been employed to play out, another has sprung up, in the person of a Mr. Abbot, who, it' he hus never done anything else to make himself famous, is likely enough to win ...

Celebrated Riders to Hounds. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 22 January 1870
Celebrated Riders to Hounds. This is truly a horsey age we live in ; though eques trianism was a boasted acquirement many centuries ago, I think, however, it will be admitted that it lias never been so widely diffuse! or so well performed as it is sit the present period. This is due to foxhunting. When that glorious sport first commenced, we read of u few brilliant stars in the hunting hemisphere; their fame was by comparison with their compeers. At the time when Mr. Meynell reigned iu Leicestershire, au incrcAscd stimulant to riding was promoted, by the buoyant spirits resorting to thiit highly favoured region. Among the earliest nud most distinguished wtts Mr., aftcrmuiU crented Lord, Forester, with his brother Salopian Mr. Childe. These two daring horsemen ap peal' to hnvc set the example, and other am bitious companions were ready to emulate their prowess over the luxuriant pasture fields of the midland counties.
