No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 2 September 1864
WE often hear people lamenting the fact that the forthcoming election is likely to be a walk-over, nor is this feeling confined to the unthinking and ignorant, nor does it end with the unprincipled tippler who would like to see a contested election because it suggests the probability of his being able to indulge extensively on " Freeman's Quay.' There are men who are above a petty mean ness, who would spend a few pounds them selves rather than batten on the purse of a candidate or his supporters; and that such men should wish for a contest for the fun of the thing, is to us a puzzle, but it is so nevertheless. We often hear people say " There will be no fun without a contest, Mr. Macgregor is sure to be returned, but I should like to see him opposed for the pur pose of making a stir; the more candidates the merrier, it will cause a little money to be spent," &c. These are the grounds upon which some men not at all deficient of good sense and the best qualities of our nature,...

MR. ROBERTS AND THE LOCAL CHAMPION AT BILLIARDS. Last night about eighty gentlemen met at the Ieathcoto Hotel, for the purpose of witnessing a display of skill on the part of the champion of the world at billiards. On this occasion Mr. James Hfay accepted six hundred points out of a thousand in the game of the evening, and at that odds, the most sanguine and skilful local plaver declared that he expected to be beaten. Some of the finest strokes it is possible to imagine were made by Mr. Roberts, and occasionally Mr. Hay distinguished him self by getting over difficulties that to his audience appeared almost insurmountable, and which frequently elicited the applause of his skilful antagonist. 31r. Hay com menced the game by giving a miss ia baulk, Mr. Roberts commenced scoring but made no great namber off a break at the start, white Mr. fHay made a break of twenty three against the champion's twenty-one; at ths time the play ofr,fr.

THE INTERNATIONAL AMATEUR SWIMMING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 16 September 1864
THE INTERnATIONAL AMIATEUR SWIMMING MATCH. This match, which had been postponed from time to time for the last twelve months, was brought to an issue on the afternoon of.July 9. The course fixed upon was in the Channel, off Calais, where boats were moored at a considerable, dis tance from the land ; the boat which marked the limit of the distance, and round which the competitors were to swim, being anchored 2. miles from the boat from which the start was made, thus giving a race of 5 miles. The French champion was 1M. Herschel, a gentleman of the Imperial navy ; while England was represented by Captain W. H. Patten Saunders. There was a fresh breeze with a good sea running; and, although the temperature of the water was low, all -cir cumstances were considered to be favour able. Before the start the bettino was 5 to 2 on Captain Saunders, the ?English party thus showing their confidence of suedoes; hut directly the men took the water, the beautiful style of M. Herschel's swimmin;g, ...
THE ALABAMA AND KEARSARGE. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 16 September 1864
TIHE ALABAMA AND KEATSARGE. The late naval duel has been the subject of correspondence and paragraphs. (1.) Our contemporaries publish a letter from Mr. Mason to Mr. Lancaster, the owner of the Deerhound, thaunking him for his " noble and disirterested spirit," and his signal service in rescuing the Alabama's crew, and saying that in doing so he (Mr. Mason) but anticipates the grateful senti ments of his country and government. (2.) A correspondence is published be tween Captain Winslow and Mr. Bonfils, the French Confederate agent. Captain Winslow claims as his prisoners those of the Alabama's crew rescued by pilot, andn brought into Cherbourg. He allowed the pilot boats to save the prisoners, from motives of hum. nity, but if the prisoners endeavour to free themselves from the obligation they must expect to meet no mercy another time. Mr. Bonfils replies that there is nothing to hinder even a sur rendered prisoner from escaping if he can, and he declines to act as a go-between bet...
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 16 September 1864
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (Fron the Home News.) The Home News thus refers to the late struggle in the British Parliament, on JMr. Disraeli's motion: ,. In the letter which is now "a month's distance" from this respected island (and it is respected, in spite of Mr. Disraeli), I said that we were in a state of anxiety as to the question of peace or war, and also that I should have some political news of interest for my July despatch. The war was speedily settled. Government decided i :a t England could not with propriety or , pediency fight for Denmark. l'The latter power had been originally in the wrong, though she had put herself right, and had moreover rejected our last counsels. Added to this we should have had no aid from France or Russia, and therefore we should have been compelled single-handed to enconnter all Germany. Lastly, it was represented that the American civil war might end at any moment, and the Federals an'.ht wish to expend their surplus of military ardour upon us, and the...

SCOsTERFELD.-A lecture was delivered on Tuesday evening last, at the Wesleyan Chapel by the Rev A. Stubbs, on the ",Means of Acquiring Knowledge." The ' lace was well filled, and the audience well p* ileased with the lecturer's efforts to instruct and amuse them. The Rev. gentleman r vwill re-deliver the lecture at Heathcote, in 1 aid of the building firnd of St. Andrew's SChurch, on the 5th of October. A curious circumstance is reported lby the Talbot Leader as having occurred in Sthe shaft of the Extended Company, SMount Greenock, on Saturday afernoon. The man below, just before leaving work, drove his pick into the rock, which sounded iollow, and on withdrawing it a volume of air issued therefrom which blew out the ; .? candle, and the water in the bottom of the ??thaft quickly disappeared through the hole n made. It was at first thought that a ;v small cavity in the rock had been struck, `=?and the air. would soon escape. Such, however, is not the case, for a number of persons o...
