A DISAPPOINTED SPORTSMAN. [To the Editor of the CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 22 June 1867

A DISAPPOINTED SPORTSLMAN. [To the Editor of the CaROxCLE.] RESPECTED Sin,--I aml an individual who vegetates when at home, at a place situate within easy walking distance of your lovely and -lively "village." I am a keen lover of sport of ecery kind, especially of bagatelle, billiards, skittles, ring the bull, puff the dart, five card cribbage, round the horn, and euchre, for in door recreation, while, for open air pleasures, I incline mostly to angling off the breakwater, loafing about at the street corners retailing local scandal, and lookitig out for stray amusements, above all for walk .ing matches. I walk a good deal myself and consider pedestrianism not only a manly and useful mode of progression, but also as eminently conducive to mental developement and speculation. Instance the peripatetic school of'philosophy. In fact my name is WValker,' and I'am related to bins of that ilk of whom it is sung, that lie rejoiced in a government billet, as a man of letters in .London. ,Y o...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. COUNCILLOR COURTIS. (To the Editor of the CHRONICLE.) [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 22 June 1867

ORIGINAL CO RRESPONDENCE. COUNCILLOR COURTIS. (To the Editor of the Chno NICLcr) Sln,-Again I find that Mr. " Progress" (to whomsoever that cognomen may belong) chooses still to act the part of a snake in the grass, and in our boasted land of free speech (evidently with some underhandcd object in view) acts thepart of a traitorous cold-hearted Bandit, ruining his neighbour with a smilo in his face. As to any privati use I make of the means Providence has blessed me with, that is my business, and for which I am ac countable to a higher being than " Progress." It is my opinion, whatever " Progress" may think to the contrary, that the people of Wil liamtstown are not to be influenced by such anonymous writing; I shall therefore beg to be excused the trouble of answering any sutcl sarcastic " lling" letters in future. Let " Pro gress" know that I am prepared to answer for my public conduct at the proper tribunal, and now treat him (" Progress") with the supreme contempt be deserves. You...
