ON BOAT RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 31 July 1875

OsTBOA-TBACBS. Boat Races consist of a river, Boats, Sags, and a lotof people. The Boats are on the river, tbe flags are in the air, aad the people are on quays, roofs of houses, limp-posts, ladders, stands, high heeled boots, and other eminences. A. man once told me that a good deal of the' Boats and flags ate on hire, and that most of the clothes worn by tbe people are on ccedit. When you look at the people from a Boat it makes you uncomfortable, and examine tbe height of the tide, for every one appears so anxious to get to the highest place possible that it half causes you to wonder if they are trying to avoid drowning by a second deluge. Boats ate made of wood- They are so dangerously constructed that if they are not placed firmly in the water at the beginning they ate very likely to torn over and spread tbe people in diem over the water and along the bottom. Before the Boats are placed in the water they are rubbed over with soap. This makes them stick ia the water very securely...

Co) u '^5- * SATCBDAT, JULY 3L, 1875. The present generation is somewhat apt to hag itself over-its merits as compared 'wim preceding fTr'*^ As regards the management of public institutions, tbe public of to-day recalls the times of its ancestors with a groan of horror or a sneer of superiority. It is asserted that whatever was, was wrong — a position winch we do sot concern ourselves to dispute ; bat on the, other hand, it is customary to affirm with rather a thought less Jewry of assertion, that in this respect whatever is, is right We do not allude to tbe assumption in order to combat it, but to warn that it is a mere fashion of the time. The great world is as content to adopt its beliefe very much at second-hand as ever it was— and having adopted them to; harden them into a creed which ; it is heresy to question. An j individual who should to-day assert I that in establishments secluded from the general eye tyranny still exists, cruelty is i rax unknown, and personal injuries no...
