spRimstmB. [FBOH Otra COBEESPOHDKNT.] As nil your madora may not be aware of the stirring érente about to come off in this neigh- bourhood, your correspondent Tentures to offer . bis knowledge ot the S'lyinte end doings pf this enlightened community, hoping his poor'efforts may be at least aoaepted,* if not appreciated. Firstly, I may mention that our races this year (though the Leichhardt Jockey Club hare issued a most tempting programme) are likely to be a failure, inasmuch as competition is nearly out of the question. The only horses now training for tho coming meeting are a few local Second-rates, so that any horse with arerage racing capabilities s could walk off with the greater portion of the prices, and the principal sport the club ond . the public would obtain would ba witnessing the chagrin of the local owners. It is strange that snch prises BS £100 sra allowed to go begging, when owners ot horsrs are known to travel more than 200 or 300 miles for the chance of winning hal...

THE OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE BOAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 15 June 1872

I THE OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE BOAT i RAOE. Tuts race came off on Mardi 23, and was rowed io a .snowstorm. Tho odds all along liavo been in favour of the Light Bine, and Light Blue bas conse- quently been in the ascendant, whether as regards tho belting, the colour of fast bovB* scarves, the trimmings of Indy's skirts, horses' heads, or coachman's whips. Untold thousands lined the banks of the river, and carriages in some parts were ranged three deep. This will show the enthusiasm of the public in reference to this national race. The Oxonians were the first to show, and had the bad luck to IOBO the choice of water, and took the outward berth. They lost no time in Stripping «nd send- ing their clothes away in skiffs, but were delayed eome time by the teen not being ready. At length all was in order, and the voice of the starter was heard to ask the usual question twice, and, receiving no response, the upraised voices of the assembled thousands told that the race of 72 had commenced.

AN AWAKENING DISCOURSE. (Saturday Review, April 13.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 June 1872

AN AWAKENING DISCOURSE!. (Saturday Seoiea, April 13 J WE have been favoured with an oppor- tunity of perusing a thoroughly awaken - tag treatise on tba "abominations" of modern society in Kew York, which contrasts somewhat strangely with the feeble teachings of those manuals of etiquette which are so frequently produced in London. " This," says the prophet of New York, "is the season for parties"; and if they are of the right kind, it is well. But many of them are not of the right kind. Young pennie are kept in a whirl of unhealthy excitement night after night until their strength fails, their spirits are broken down, and their taste for ordinary life is corrupted. By t he time spring comes they are in the doctor's hands or sleeping in the cemetery. Thc certificate of death is made out, and the physician, out of jegard for the family, calls the disease by some Latin name, "when the truth is, that they died of too many parties." ThiB alarming but indistinct language is partially expl...

He believed that any action on the part of the lion, gentleman at the head of tho Government would be fully acquiesced in by hon. members on the other side, and he was perfectly certain that any action on the part of the hOn. member for Fortitude Valley regarding tilla question would bs fully acquiesced in by hon. member« on his (Mr. Griffith'a) side of the House ' (Hear, hear, ' from the Opposition benches.)

wiro WHICH IS IKCOBTOKATKD THE GLADSTONE OBSERVEU. TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 1872. TUE letter of Sir CHARLES NICHOL- SON is not encouraging to persons who regard Separation at Dawes Sange as the one thing needful. At the outset Sir CaAEi.Es met with a rebuff from the Colonial Office. In the absence of a report from the Colonial Government or Legislature, Earl KisnmntEr intimated that he could give no reply to the petitioners. Therefore, an interview would be useless, and our Loudon friends were virtually told they had better not trouble themselves to form the intended deputation. Sir OHAELEB NICHOLSON, however, was too old a politician to be thus foiled. If be could not wait officially upon the SECEETAUY OF STATS, be would pay an unofficial visit to Earl Em BEELEY. And tbuB, if Sir CHAMES' version of the interview be accepted, the views of tbe 'Colonial Office have been ascertained without a formal refusal of the prayer of tbe petitioners.
