CORRESPONDENCE. GEASSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 24 December 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. GEASSES. Sir,—Tour correspondent " T. H." asks for information upon the moat suitable grasses for a sandy soil. Taking the queries in rotation, aa No. 1. " What are the most suitable seeds to be used for the formation of a permanent pasture for horses and oows on a sandy soil ?" So plant equals lucerne for dry, sandy soils. " T. 11." does not state if the soil is dry, but I take it for granted. If the subsoil is olay, and at a depth of eighteen inches to two feet from the surface, it will be an additional ad ran tage for lcoerne or other grasses ; in such a case I should adrise " T. H." to break through the clay by means of the subsoil plough. The sowing down of pastures with lucerne has one disadvantage—it is difficult to clear when once established in the soil. For a mixture of grasses, use cocksfoot, cow-grass, rib-grass, sweet vernal, oat-grass, birdafoot, trefoil, soft-grass, and Alayke olover; perennial rye-gran may also be included in the above, as it gives a ...

FOUR REMOVES FROM ECLIPSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 24 December 1864

FOUR REMOVES FROM ECLIPSE. Some inquiry and observation occurred at Bendigo Usee Meeting last week upon the subject of a statement made in The Argue, and subsequently in The AvetraU atian, that Abd-el-Kader, the sire of the winner of the Maiden Plate, was only in the fifth remove of direct lineal descent from the renowned Eclipse. The state ment was thought singular, seeing that it is nearly a oentnry sinoe Eclipse flourished on the Turf; but it is never theless perfectly accurate. Abd-cl-Kader'e abort pedigree going back to Eclipse his great-great grandsire, is as follows—liia sire, Forlorn H ope, was by Cydnus, whose dam, Perai^Sblis, was by Alexander, a son of Eclipse. Alexander was foaled in 1762, when his tire was eighteen years old. Persepolis was foaled in 1803, and she dropped Cydnus, her thirteenth foal, in 1821, the latter the sire of Forlorn Hope in 1836, and so the century of space is bridged over.

A TURF RETROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 24 December 1864

A TURF RETROSPECT. When titi* retrospect of the Turf hii twywM oommenoed in a former number Of Tie Autiralatian, it wu intended to' he, only n short rotund of racing gossip chiefly concerning the sporting " days of sold lug syne { and as it has now gone beyond the limits appointed, lest the reader s patience should be exhausted, the oOnclnsion must be hurried forward. Nor, indeed, is it necessary to dwell upon the Turf transactions of those later Tears which are yet fresh in the reeol leelion of the majority of men who attend our races, Talcing up the narratire at the com mencement of the season of 1858-59, we find Alice Hawthorn at -sill dintances, and Woodpecker, with Wait-a-while, Green Linnet, The Moor(formerly Bather shins), and Blink Bonny at some dis tances, winning most of the all-aged (takes and handicaps i Walkover re taining the command of the 8teeplechsse courses.

"OBSERVER" ON THE LATE BENDIGO RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 24 December 1864

"OBSERVER" ON THE LATE BENDIGO RACES. Baring matters are looldng up in the Bendigo district, and I should not be suprised if the local Jockey Club were to announce a three days' programme for their next " ryghte merrie meetynge." The late gathering was very successful in yielding good returns to the B J.C. tree smy, and would hare been more eo had .the affair been sufficiently adrertised in journals which almost unirersaliy meet the eye of intending visitors to the races. Provincial stewards hare not yet realised the Jaet that their announcements should not only eome under the observation of the owners of racehorses, who, of course, would look for foe programmes though they were published only in the Govern ment Gazette, bat that the general public should be made to know something of their intentions. Personally, I hare heard persons in s public room in Melbourne, within comparatively a recent period, ex press surprise that races were next day to take place on Flemington oourae, non...
