The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870

The Turf. THE heavy rain of tho last four weeks has prevented any work being done on the training grounds; and even now that the weather has taken up, it will be some days before thors can be any galloping on tho Randwick Course-a serious drawback, indeed, to trainers within so short a time of Homebush and Randwick meetings. There is literally nothing to give in the shape of news from the training quarters ; though it is satisfactory to know that the nags aro well, and that tho damp woathor has not brought influenza into the stables. Were any epidemic to make its appearance now, it would be a very serious thing, as there are heavy strings at some of the Randwick establishments-Mr. Tait having alone a round dozen. The present is a time of muoh anxiety to trainers, with all the great events of tho autumn within six weeks of them; and it is tobe hoped that we are at an end of the downpour. Mr. Tait and Mr. "Winch returned from Melbourne by the City of Adelaide, on Saturday morning, bri...

Victoria Racing Club. AUTUMN MEETING. SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870

Victoria Racing Club. AUTUMN MEETING. SECOND DAY. As it carno off, the weather was splendid, and, tnore fore, the attendance was good. Those who know how the Club really do endeavour to attract tlie public will understand that there was a great crowd on the hill and in the stand, and that prosperity reigned.' ""Victor" won tho first race, putting out, I think, Kestrel's Legor chance at Randwick, and Misty Morn was third. In the Nursery, Florence, who was beaten at weight for ago on Saturday by Tho Roe, received seven pounds, and got a good start, winning easily; but I can toll you that her good start was not half as much in front of "The Roe" as "Florence's" bad ono was bohind Mr. Fisher's filly in Tho Ascot Valei' In tho latter race, Florence was just walk ing round when thc flag fell; but this mattors nought. I advise Florenco for tho " Cham« pagno" if she gets homo safely. " Milesian" won tho Autumn Handicap, the constnnt, though not first-class Sir "Walter being second; and your...

Music and the Drama. " Justices always whirls In equal measure."—LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870

Music and the Drama. " Justices always whirls In equal measure."-LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST. IT is now-a-days so very raro that wo have an oppor tunity of listening to tho public performance in Sydney of anything liko good music, that it is a matter of con siderable pleasure to bo able to make somo remarks on an entertainment of a high musical character-tho first concert for the prosent season of tho Philhar monic Society, hold at tho Exchange on Tuesday 15th inst. Perhaps there are few towns in which music is learned with greater avidity than Sydney ; but the love for its beauties as an art, beyond tho mero momentary amusement that tho occupation affords, is but very superficial ; hence, good music find« but few supporters. The number of music teachers here is legionary-professional artists aro few and far between. And oven amongst tho artists who are hero, thero is no combination for tho purpose of propounding and illus trating tho principles of art. Hence tho amateur element provails ;...

The Floods. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870

The Floods. i~|NCE more the disastrous floods in the ^-^ north, and the fierce gales that have swept along the coast, form the prevailing topics of conversation. Those who,in Sydney, with a roof over their heads, however humble, listened night after night to the howling of the tempest and the ceaseless pelting of the rain, must per force have felt grateful that they were safe from the dangers of tho sea, and the scarcely less terrible peril involved in the inundations that have been more or less destructive, from tbe Hawkesbury, within a fow miles of Sydney, to the river Mary in Queensland, along a coast line of seven hundred miles. When we learn that that noble stream the Clarence, with its great breadth and the very slight obstructions to the outlet of its waters, had risen fifteen feet above its ordinary level on Saturday, and was still rising, some opinion may be formed of the tremendous fall of raia within the area embraced by its tributaries. This great river, however, collect...

NEWCASTLE. Wednesday Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 26 March 1870

NEWCASTLE. Wednesday Afternoon. TUB LATE GALE -Tho damage dono by tho late galo is much less than might reasonably have been expected. Tho southern breakwater ii very little injured, and can easily bo repaired. Tho ririncipal damago consists in the shifting by tho seas of a few of the largo blocks of stone on the ocean side of tho structure, and thc displacement of »good deal of ballast on I l.o tramway. Tho men are busily at work to-day (Wed nesday) filling up ttio gaps, and doing what is necessary. The damage done to tho top of tho breakwater cannot yet be repaired, owing to tho carrying away by tho force of thc sea of the ballast tramway close to tho No. 1 lifeboat shed. The force of the sea here was tremendous-so much so, that tho "ways" of both tho lifeboats have sustained considerable damage. All tho mischief was affected by ono hugo wave, which broke ashore with terrific violence about ll o'clock on Sunday morning. 'THE GIVKAT NORTHERN RAILWAY.-Tho damago to tho railway at He...

THE GrEAJZIEB. Water Supply for Stations. BORING MACHINERY. IN a previous number "we gave a description of a novelty in well-boring machinery as generally used in Europe, although what wo have called a novelty, and is claimed as a new invention, has been in use in Ohina for centuries, and long ago described in English works on mechanics. The principle of that invention consists in raising or lowering by means of a rope and windlass the boring tool, in stead of resorting to the tedious process of unscrew ing a series of iron rods every time it was neces sary to lift the borer. Machinery of this des cription where it could he applied would he of incal culable service to many of our diggers and squatters. As will he seen from a perusal of the subjoined description of the machinery usually employed, water could bo reached in a short space of time through ordinary strata, should thore be any within hundreds of feet from tho surface, while tho ex penso (especially by tho improvement which...
