MANLY AQUARIUM [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
MANLY AQUARIUM One of the most gratifying: of the events of the Christmas season, as far as tho amusement world is concerned, has been tho perfect and unalloyed strccess of the Manly Aquarium, which has been crammed on most days and visited by ns many people as it can possibly accommodate through all tho holiday time. Any different result would have been extremely dis couraging, for as tho work is so should the reward be. The work was the result of a most intelligent enterprise most energeti cally conducted and brought to a state of admirable completeness in an incredibly short time. The object in view was a good one, and it has been magnificently fulfilled. The Aquarium is the coolest, greenest, and most delicious nook tobefound near Sydney, and its appreciation by the public is ono of the best and most encouraging signs of popu lar discretion. The entortainment provided ?is as good as it could possibly be, the com fort of the public is Btudied in every direc tion, and the ? arrang...
Woolpack Handicap [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
'Woolpack Handicap - The first round of the above event has been run, and the final will bo wo-.i this afternoon. I alike fancy that the best mon here ran on the first day. A very close finish will be between J. Knox on 11yds., and tho veteran Stephens on SJyds. If Stephens can spring a yard on the start he will win, but both away to gether, I think J. KNOX will breast the tape first.
SAILING AND ROWING. SAILING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
SAILING AND ROWING. SAILING NOTES. [by backstay.1 Through the intervention of the holidays little of importance has taken place. Most of our yachtsmen have spent their timo camping out, and fine weather favoured those who chose to beguile the hours in this ever enjoyable way. The sea was not 'j' too heavy for those who intended to pitch their tents outside the limits' of tta Harbour, and manv of the favourite resorts . were well patronised, and of an evening the , sounds of many voices could be heard in song, which, if discordant when near, was rendered musical and sweet when wafted o'er the waters by the light breezes that prevailed, and also could be seen tho neces sary requirement, the 'camp fire,' at 1 times casting its weird glare far across the ' , calm waters, and lighting the shores in a, ' J; dull manner, showing the forms pf the . ' ' ? tired crews lounging around the ' tent. Fishing, shooting, cricket, and Bwimming constituted the pastime at most of tho .. camps, and each...
CRICKET NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
[?] '' ' , 'BY NOT OUT.' ?' .. Tliough it was expected that tho Vic torian. Warclionsemen would defeat our team, yet, after the first day's play, the '?* game looked decidedly in favour of the « home team, for, with ono wicket down for ..'45 rirtis, something like a respectable total ? might have been recorded. Such, how ever, was not the ease, as the Sydney men ' were all out for 91 rur.3. This sudden downfall on tho part of the batsmon is j almost unaccountable, and thus tlie game * ^ underwent a grievous change in quite a » ' short time. The Victorians, in thoir second essay with tho willow, showed far ?* hotter form on the first innings' display, with the result that thoy finally won a most enjoyable match with six wickets to spare. In this innings Colbran bowled best, but nono of tho trundlors wore able to break the defence of the Victorians to - ' any great extent. Ono of the principal features of this match was the excep tionally smart wicket-keeping of liaines and Searle, ei...
Cruise of H. M. S. Diamond. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
Cruise of H.M.S. Diamond. H.M.S. Diamond, under the command of Captain Clayton, returned to Port Jackson on Sunday evening last after a cruise round the islands of over three months. The Diamond left here in Sep tember last, and proceeded to the New Hebrides (calling at Noumea on the way), where Captain Clayton inspected the military posts of Havannah and Port Sandwich. Several other ports were touched at, and in two instances natives were puuished, for the murder of British seamen. The Diamond reached Port Moresby on November 30, and left there on December 3 for Sydney. The Diamond called at Townsville and Brisbane on her way down tho coast. The trip has been a very successful one, the ship's company on the whole keeping very good health. The Diamond is now at anchor in Farm Cove. ? ?
THE EAGLES' NEST. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
THE EAGLES' NEST. Some fifty years ago a pair of eagles had their habitation among the rocks on the almost perpendicular side of a mountain in Ayrshire. The owners of the domicile did not scruple to help themselves to a choice lamb occasionally, and the farmers' wives feared the eagles might at some timo grow bold enough to carry away some of their household treasures. Many attempts had been made to reach the eyrie, but all had proved unsuccessful. Even Donald Ramsay, the sailor, had tried in vain to scale the precipice. In the neighbourhood lived a gentleman farmer named Sterling. Among his many retainers was one David Reid, a half-witted fellow, who was valued ashighlyfortheamusement he frequently furnished by his odd sayings and doings as for the labour he performed. One morning he was behindhand coming to breakfast. His entrance was the signal for a volley of pleasantry from his com panions. ? 'Hillo, David! And it's not often you're behind when meal-time comes,' said one. ' Na,...
NAVAL AND MILITARY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
NATAL AND MILITARY. I Captain H. P. Airey, N.S.W. Artil lery, has gone on six menths' leave of absence, and we hear he intends spending it in Burmah on the staff of General Sir Frederick Roberts, who commands the British troops assembled there for the purpose of quelling the present disturb ance in that territory. The Times (London) in a recent issue described the situation in Burmah as so desperate that the imme diate presence of General Roberts was re quired there in order to avert impending disaster. General Roberts' fltaff having been lessened by the decease of some of his officers, he asked the War Office for more officers to fill their places, and this coming to the knowledge of Captain Airey (as well as many other officers in the colony), he volunteered for active service in Burmah, and immediately applied for six months' leave (which, after his long and valuable services, he is justly entitled to). This ho got, and is now on his way to Burmah. Captain Airey has the good-will...

The concert was under the patronage of his Excellency the Governorand Commander-in-Chief, Major General Richardson, C.B., and Lieutenant Colonel Eden, the two latter officers, with Major Mackenzie, A.A.G.,and many others of our local forces beins; present. Tlie concert was held in the Exhibition Build ing, Prince Alfred Park. The programme was of a varied nature, and comprised some items peculiarly interesting to the military, such as selections by the regi mental bands, bugle marches and reels, &c. Lieutenant AVilson acted as secretary, and his arrangements were successfully carried out, the stage looking very pretty, a word or two on which might not be out of place. In front of the door through which the performers entered the stage was erected a tent, which was so arranged as to give the appearance that th...

GRAND MILITARY CONCERT. x iftli Scottish. Stifles.

In the former selec tion the cornet solo, '? Ye banks and braes,' was excellently played by C. E. Blancliard. Mr. H. Galloway sang 'The Yeoman's Wedding Song' and 'The Highland Message ' with great taste. Mr. Vernon Reid gave a fair rendering of ' Ancho...
C. E. MERCHANT. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
E. :MMMANT.'iv:; The subject of our sketch this week, and the winner of the first Carrington, was born at Sandhurst, Victoria, and is now 23 years of age. He first began his running career at Casterton, Victoria, at which place his father was post and telegraph master. There ho won several local races, which succcss he followed up by victories at Castlemaino and Hamilton. Being a com positor by calling, and naturally anxious to see the colonies and gain experience, he applied and received an engagement in the office of a well-known and extensive print ing and publishing house in Melbourne. There he ran in a fire brigades handicap, which was won by Trinder, the recent winner of the Banks Sheffield. Tho com mittee had reasons for disqualifying the Ballarat representative, and awarded Mer chant the first money. Is it not a strange coincidence that the first and second men in that handicap should appropriate the Banks and Carrington Shcflields about the one time ? Merchant was next prom...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887
.MELBOURNE1 SIkeK : (feom oirn OWN correspondent.) We have now entered fairly on the new year, it having been inaugurated at Flemington with a very successful race meeting, at innumerable country towns with sports and race meetings, and throughout the colony gonerally with pleasure seeking, most of which was outdoors. The woatlior was fine, although a trifle hot, and consequently the thousands that sought enjoyment at the racecourse, down the bay, at the various sports meetings, or at the thousand and one other places of holiday resort wero ablo to do so un trammeled by fear of rain. Not even in holiday-loving Melbourne has New Year's Day been more religiously observed as a day of pleasure, even tho small fruiterers aud gingerbeer-shop keepers in tho suburbs disdaining 03 a rule to open ; but, neglecting tho thriving- trade they might have driven, they packed up early in the morning, and with themselves, their wives, and the faniilios that inevitably cluster round the small shopkeep...
