THE BETTING MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870
"THE BETTING MARKET. Thoro hos been a good deal of spéculation during the week, on the "Leger" and "Gold Cup." For tho . former Charon is very firmly backed, right out, and in . doubles. Nothing else is scarcely mentioned in double events. Forthe Leger right out three to one is taken freely; the highest offer against him now for money is 5 to 2. Since tho Tattersall^ Club Races three or four horses have come into favour for tho Gold Cup, parti cularly the Earl and Rosebud. The Earl is backed freely at hundreds to seven. This is owing to his having run so honest and well on New Year's Day, run ning second in two of the principal races. Rosebud is backed at hundreds to eight, and is fancied now on account of the manner in which Al won the Tattersalls Cup, Rosebud having beaten him at Homebush, and nowmeeting her on better terms. The hero of many a battle (Tim Whiffler) is first favourite, having been backed to win a large amount at seven to one. Charon lias also been backed, ¡ind is n...
The Old Willow Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870
The Old Willow Tree. The corn was in the gronnd, and the fences all repaired, And the garden-beds, as smooth as counterpanes were laid, They were dotted, striped, and drilled where the peas and the radishes grew, With elecampane at foot, and parsley and sage, and rue. The work was done on the farm¡ 'twas orderly everywhere, And comfort smiled from the earth, and rest was felt in the air. When a Saturday afternoon at such a time comes round, Tho farmer's fancies grow, as grows tho grain in the ground. xii. 'Twas so with Gilbert Oakes : he stood by the willow treo That carno, in the time of King, with his fathers over the sea, Twice forty years lt had grown where it first was sot, And tho drooping leaves were thick and the trunk was sturdy yet. iv. From the knoll where stood the house the fair fields ! pleasantly rolled To dells where the berries hung, and the rocks were specked with gold : Ho looked on theni all by turns, with joy in his acres free, But ever his thoughts came back to...
THE NOVELIST. MARK FELTON. HIS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AND ESCAPES. CHAPTER VI.—THE OUTBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870
? fâ&E NOVELIST, . MARK FELTON. HIS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AND. ESCAPES. CHAPTER VI.-THE OUTBREAK. MARK took tho Yankee's advice, and kept strict watch upon the men, against whom he had been cautioned. Ho found that the shrewd Yankee had some cause for his suspicions. Ho observed that under some pretence tho chief mate caused his transfer to the carpenter's watch, and had Mr. Scoop appointed in his stead ; and that, on every available occasion, they conversed to gether. Moreover, the lad's quick perception discovered a sinister triumph in Scoop's features, as once or twice he caught the fellow's eyes fixed upon lum ; while, in . thc first mate's increased affability towards him, he found another reason for suspicion. Under these cir cumstances, he was in great doubt as to the course to pursue. He took the first opportunity of consulting the American. " I don't like telling Captain Longfield what I sus pect," he said, " for ho is so impetuous, and at the same time so unsuspectin...
LADIES' COLUMN. Mr. Greeley on Woman's Rights [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870
LADIES' COLUMN. Mr. Greeley on Woman's Rights] BY HOBAOE GREELEY. , j I. I MOUD that God created our raoo, malo anil female, with clear-seeing intent that it should thereby bo rendered more efficient, nobler, happior, than it otherwise could be, and that this diversity relates not to a single function morely, but cxtonds to our ontirely physical, intellectual, and emotional nature. . II. I hold that this distinction is so innate, vital, essential, that tho first man and tho first woman, wore having realised that " it is not good that man should be alone," and having blended their efforts and their, fortunes for mutual well-being accordingly, at onco recognised tho intrinsic fitness of each for distinct exertions for tho common good; and that tho man went forth to collect tho bounties of Nature or constrain thom into such forms as would be conducive to thoir subsistance, while the woman took charge of tho bower, cabin, or cave, which formed their abiding-place, and proceeded to make ...
Charles Dickens and his Wife. INTERESTING LETTER OF MR. DICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 15 January 1870
Charles Dickens and his Wife. INTERESTING LETTER OF MR. DICKENS. I THE separation between Charles Dickens and his wife in 1858 created a great deal of speculation at the time, and called forth, as our readers may possibly remember, an authoritative explanation by the novelist of tho reasons and circumstances of the unfortunate affair. The following letter, therefore, printed in a new Boston Saper called The Folio, tells nothing new, but in these ays of family scandals and impertinences may be worth attention. We shoidd not omit to say that the gentle man to whom it was addressed was permitted and even requested by Mr. Dickens to show it "to any one who had been misled into doing him wrong" : My Dear-: Mrs. Diokens and I have lived un happily together for many years? Hardly any one who has Known us intimately can fail to have known that we are, in all respects of character and temperament, wonderfully unsuited to each other. I suppose that no two people, not vicious in themselves, ev...
