HANDS ON A HORSE. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 July 1876

Br AJTO&D Btohkak. (Hromikt.Avdraiadan.) The natives of these colonies have much experience in horseflesh, ride with fearless ness and determination, and have immense |xtac(aoe; yet* strange to say, they cannot, as a be irasdked as first-class horsemen. Dashing riders on a vicious bucfcjumper, great in Vising down a mountain side after a wild mob of cattle, perfectly fearless under all orcmnstances where horses are concerned, and with a seat which, mgkt almost defy: anything short of an earthquake, yet colonial - horsemen, as a general rule, have one signal fault whh&must disqualify them frombeing considered perfect or scientific horsemen. - The fault alluded to is the want of . what is commonly know as good hands on a horse. To have perfect control over & horse the rider j must, in the first place, have an easy firm: seat; but even when possessed of this, his j control over his horse must always be com paratively slight, unless he hare also fine, light hands...

THE AUSTRALIAN MAIL SERVICE. (From the Melbourne Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 July 1876

-CHE AUSTRALIAN MATT, * SERVICE. (From the Melbourne Dotty Telegraph.) I Thorough satisfaction is expressed in New South "Wales with the performances of the Zealandia, which are held to be a proof not only of the efficiency of the steamer, but of the Pacific ' mail "route. "The mails which left Sydney by thfi Zealandia on the .7th iA.pril were delivered in-London on the 22nd May, three days before the contract time, or forty five days from port. Again, the mails which left London on 4th May were delivered in Sydney on the 19th inst., or forty-five days from port, and it.is.therefore.claimed that the forty-five days service haa been practically established. Sydney has no doubt a very good service and a .very cheap one, for it is marvellous boats like the Zealandia and the. Australia should be run at the speed they are for the money. But suppose the satne vessels and "the same speed were- used on the Suez line ? We have just seen1 .th6. China deliver her mails of the 12tk May upon Jii...

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 15 July 1876

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. Bt Pan. We have lately noticed that various meetings have been called at several of the towns of the colony, for the purpose of considering the desuv ability of petitioning Parliament to pass an Act to limitthe duration of .a day's labour to eight honrs. Well, we are quite agreeable ; in fact-we .should be content if they would do away with labour altogether, and make arrangements for us ±o live on the fat of the land, without work of any kind. But we are: afraid these good times are never coining, for we find that as we in crease in years the inore work we have to do, to make both endB meet; and we very often find that we cannot do so even by labouring for twelve hours a day, and how we are to do so if the day is to be limited to eight hours, is a prob lem we are not prepared to solve; nor are we alone, in this there are plenty 'of men; in this district at least, who would be very glad just at present, to get the chance of working for any number of hours, ...

THE WORKING MAN IN THE STATES. Referring to Chicago, a writer in the Herald says:— The magnitude of the traffic may be inferred from the fact that the six principal lines re ceive at and despatch from Chicago about 320 trains a day. Still, business is said to be i dreadfully dull, credit has been greatly con | tracted, and all through this winter there have been hordes of labourers and mechanics wan | dering about the country in a state of hope less destitution or almost starring in the | towns. " Hard times" seems to have become | almost chronic in the Union. Markets have ! been overstocked; and manufacturers have | combined to reduce production. ' Immigration hither has greatly fallen off; and T saw a proposal in one of the principal New York papers a short time ago to ship back some of the unemployed to the eld country. The writer, Mr. Robert H. Smythe, said:—"It, does not appear that any State Legislatures have succeeded in devising measures for afford ing employment to a large ...
