FEMALE BOXING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 July 1876
FEMALE BOXING MATCH. One of the latest "sensations" in New York has been a "female boxing match," aptly described by the New York Times as a "'novel and nonsensical exhibition." The combatants-or " Indy contestants," as they are called in the report of the proceedings were two iallet-girls, of the kind known as "variety dancers." One, Miss Saunders, wrore a white bodice, purple knee b'eeches, which she had borrowed from an Ethiopian serenader, red stockings, and shoes. The other, Miss Rose Harland, was attired In blue trunks and white tighlts. Both appeari.d nervous, were very pale. trhid to hlish, and "partially succecded." When fighlting began I oivs ITarl?ant "did not know what to do I with her hands." Miss Saunders, how ever, had her fists more at cotnmancd, nml after soime preliminary sparring, succeeded in striking her opponent" square in the face.' Miss Itarland, on her side, " by a vicious blow from the shoulder," nmanaged to dis arrange Miss ,iunder's black hair. Moth ladie...
THE STATE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 4 July 1876
THE STATE OF EUROPE. .THE aspect of European affairs, a disclosed by the intelligence to ha by the mail just arrived, is eminent calculated to raise doubts as to tl long continuance of peace. The mot powerful empires on the face of tl earth are all armed to the utmor extent that their finances will endure and they have almost countless thou sands of men wi:hdrawn fiom peacefu arid reproductive labour, and living or the -industry and resoyrces of theos who remain in the pursuit of their ordinary avocations. These vas legions are but awaiting the fiat of perhaps, only one man, and a conflict will commence of a character that the world has not as yet experienced. Turkey, tlint 1 ti noir of diplomatists for many years past, promises to be1 the casus belli which will eventually enwrap the whole of Europe in a fierce and sanguinary struggle that will be without parallel in the history of past ages. The condition of that once dominant country has become almost unendurable to civilised and ...

THE BOROUGH ELECTION [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 7 July 1876
THE BOIQUGH ELECTION. IT is a healthy sign when the rate payers of the town are already making efforts to secure the best men for the next Council, and it is a matter of regret that Mr. SCOTT, whose refusal to 'stand as a tcandidate.. appears in another column, canndt spare the time which our municipial matters unques tionably demaud.

CURIOUS ROBBERY AT BRAIDWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 7 July 1876
OURIOUW ROBBERY AT BRAID WOOD. No small amount of excitement and curiosity was manifested in this place on Thursday morning, June YS, when the news reached us of a highway robbery having taken place the evening before, about twelve miles from town, and no amount of risibility was spared when the particulars of the daring act were made known. From reliable authority I find this to be the fact i-Mr Smith, the Araluen butcher, sends weekly to Braidwood, a covered waggon loaded with the delicacies of his shambles, and his step son, John Larcombe, a strong, muscular young man, delves the vehicle, accompanied on the same seat with another strong young man. Last Wednesday, at about 3 p.m., Mr. Larcombe left Braidwood on his return home, having disposed of his load amongst our good housewives for £5 odd shillings. When on the Bell's Creek Mountain, at Murder Hill (where a few years ago some Chinamen were stuck-up and eased of a large quantity of gold, and during the affray one of the,unfort...

THE HUNDRED-MILE RACE AT HOWLONG. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 7 July 1876
THE HUNDRED-MILE BARE AT NOWLONI, (Abridged from the Wahgunyah News of June 30.) This extraordinary event came oft on Tuesday last, the 27th inst., on the Howlong racecourse. Both horses engaged had been in training for some time previously although it was not known for a certanty whether the race would or would not be consummated. It appears that one of the persons Interested had borrowed the horse John Sullivan from his then owner, Mr E. Brown, and ridden him a distance of about 70 miles in what was considered an unprecedentedly short space of time. On returning home, however, an accident, by which the horse's knees were temporarily injured, induced a little disagree ment'between the parties, and from this, the borrower decided upon purchasing the horse at the price demanded. After concluding the bargain, he casually asserted that the horse wbich-he had just bought had greater powers of endurance than any other In the distrit, when a bystander observed that he wetli back the herm ...
