DALBY. [from: otte own coeeespondent. Verily the bump of aggressiveness appears to be pretty fully developed amongst the resi dents of this city of the Plains—that is when they get away from home. Two cases in point; On Saturday week Mr. Campbell was about to return home by train from Toowoomba, and was on the railway platform conversing with friends some half-hour before the train started, so saith an eyewitness, but was so engrossed that the | bell rang twice, the whistle sounded, and the train began to move before he was conscious of the state of affairs. Anxious to get hocie he C&Erge4l illtf Llifciti ^<-> ..i~"1 c in turn charged him, "and ms intention was crushed in the bud. He was irate, and unad visedly rushed into print on the subject.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. A NEW JOCKEY CLUB. To the Editor of the Western Star. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 19 August 1876

ORIGINAL CORRESPOOTENCE. A NEW JOCKEY CLUB. To the Editor of the^ Western Star, Sm,—The last two race meetings held in I Roma have looked to me so muck lika-faiLures, that I venture to ask "for room in your columns, to suggest that the time has arrived for a.decided alteration to be made in the management and mode of arranging the races for the future. We have in the district now two Racing Clubs, and exemplify in a most marked manner the old fable of the bundle of sticks, when parted. I have no hesitation in asserting that, with united action, we could have as good races here as any | inland town in Queensland, but as long as we are divided in the present absurd manner, nothing better than the late failures can be ex pected. I write this, not to in any way disparage the efforts of the gentlemen who have managed racing matters here lately, or the gentlemen themselves, but in that fair and open spirit of criticism which all Britons claim the. right to exercise on public men and their...

The usual champagne having been brought, Mr. Cottle proposed the health of the winners. He said the Stewards had a most, unpleasant duty to perfonn in considering the different pro tests that had been entered. However, he . trusted that good would result from the example that had been made. He was very sorry for Mr. Ryder, as he believed from the evidence produced that that gentleman bought the mare Dora in the .belief that she was a maiden. The toast was acknowledged by Mr. Johnston, and the .healths of the losers, Stewards, Judge, Starter and Clerk of the Course," and Secretary were also drank .and duly, acknowledged. , The settling was advertised to take place on Thursday at 4 o'clock, but the Stewards were engaged hearing-evidence and deciding on the different protests from 2 till 10 o'clock p.m. on that day, hence the settling was ...
