ATHLETICS. Our Richmond correspondent writes :-A foot racc is to take place this (Saturday) afternoon at 5 p.m. between Tom Cobcroft and J. Timmins, tlie former allowing the latter z yards start in 50 yards. The match is causing a good deal of inter est, and as Timmins appears to run well for a short distance, Tom will have to be on his best be haviour to put him down. I think he will win, as ' he is very fast for 100 yards.

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 August 1888

FOOTBALL. The English team beat Queensland Juniors (18) by ii points to 3. A correspondent sends the following, which comes rather late in the day certainly, but better late than never :-The Richmond football club met the Ivanhoes on the nth inst, and again came off victorious. The Ivanhoes were fully repres ented, and had some very good men in their team whereas Richmond played two short. The game was fast from the start. After a close scrimmage the ball was passed to Cobcroft, who ran round on the right wing and got No. 1 try for Richmond but in taking kick at goal, took it too easy and missed. The game had not proceeded far, before this player again got the ball from a good pass by Eather, and running right away from his oppon ents got behind the goal posts thus adding No. 2. to Richmond. Eather took the kick at goal, but the ball rolled when placed and did not add to the score. Half time was now called, leaving Rich mond 4 points, Ivanhoe, nil. After the usual interval of 5 minu...

The horses on the ground are being put through the usual work, and are all looking very "fit." It will be gratifying to all lovers of racing to learn that the veteran sportsman, Mr. Andrew Town, the squire of Hobartvilie, has been ap pointed judge to the Warwick Farm Racing Club. As a Judge, Mr. Town has few equals, and it is a good thing to see so ardent a sports man once more entering with such zest upon the duties attendant upon the position he has accepted....

FARMING IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 August 1888

FARMING IN NEW SOUTH WALES. Farming doesn't pay in New South Wales ! That is a cry that I hear, through my " exchanges" half a dozen times eveiy week ; but a little light has just been thrown on the matter from the north, and it shows that a deal of trouble lies with the farmers themselves. It appears that Messrs. J. See & Co., of Grafton, who are large dealers in agricultural produce and the like, recently wrote to the editor of the INVEKELL TIMES as follows: 41 Sir, would you kindly quote us market prices at Inverell, of maize, oaten hay. potatoes, onions, and other produce, as, if we could land such here at same price as we could from Melbourne or Sydney, we would prefer buying in your district, in order to induce teamsters to keep on the road, by getting return loading, and we believe a good trade can be kept by interchange of commodities." The editor beingjust the man to help the good cause along, saddled up his fiery untamed steed, which has faithfully carried him for ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THAT LOOP LINE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 August 1888

CORRESPONDENCE. [WE do not identify purselves with theppinions, of our correspondents.] THAT LOOP LINE. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-It takes a railway to shake the apathy out of people. Of all the political axes to grind, your " railway agin my property " is the most played upon. People go to sleep,upon other grievances ancl sleep for years too-but the mere mention of a railway awakens them, to the fullest extent; they sniff a railway as keenly as vultures or hyenas smell carrion, and the reason, I conclude, is self interest. Rivers may silt up, roads may degenerate into merely chains of bog holes; people may thirst for want of water to drink, and foul odours may stink them out for want of sewers, and they complain not : but just drop the one word, "railway," and they become real, live, ani mated beings. A railway over Kurrajong is not a new thing. Four years ago the disease assumed big pro portions, and most everybody "had it bad." True, the present phase of the Kurrajong Rail way epidemic...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifiurent good to cither. TAMING oi' THE SHREW. IT took the staff ot the BULLYTIN a whole week to exercise their humorous faculties and bring forth, the following excruciatingly funny paragraph and ghastly " goak!' for my edification:-" The WIND SOR AND RICHMOND GAZETTE is a new paper which hails from the Hawkesbury (N.S'.W.) and says, in the course of a long-drawn attack on the BULLETIN : " 'Tis an ill bird that fowls its own nest.' This is a venerable adage.' Nq, ^ar boy, it isn't. Your adage is quite new ; even Chaucer didp't alwaysspell 'foul' with a . w.' Then,adds the Gazette, ' the conductors of the BULLETIN came from America.' This is another big mistake: The conductors of the BULLETIN came neither from America nor the ' Oxberry,' although' they have learnt ttlittlb'frbm both those great natioBS."

THE OLDEST NEWSPAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 August 1888

THE OLDEST NEWSPAPER. The oldest newspaper in the world is the Chinese PEKIN GAZETTE-the King; Pan* or capital sheet-published in Pekin,. which first appeared in A. n. 911. Colonel I Tchengki-Tong, the author of " The Chinese, painted by Themselves," traces, the origin of journalism in his country to. a compilation oi popular charts ordained long before the Christian era, by the Emperor Hung-Hoang, in order that lie ??might become acquainted with the r maimers of his people. However tradi ; tion assigns the PEKIN GAZETTE, a birth under the Sung Dynasty in the latter part of the tenth century a.D. ; and several European authorities aire inclined !to believe in this tradition. It first came out only at irregular intervals ; since the: year 1351, however, it has been published weekly, and of uniform size, and within recent times it has been issued ist a new 1 form prescribed by special edict of the Emperor Quang Soo. Until its re-orgaji isation by Imperial decree, the paper contained n...

WORTH READING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 August 1888

WORTH READING. MRS. GORDON-BAILLIE,-The story of Mrs. Gordon-Baillie's alleged adventures is as strange as anything jn romance. If it is true, there surely was never before such a wonderful washerwoman's daughter. Whatever and whoever she may be, Mrs. Gordon-Baillie is a remarkably handsome woman. One who has met her many times gives the following description of her:-A tall, good looking woman, of the type which the word elegant seems best to fit. Her beauty struck me as the beaute du diable, the eyes being rather sly when not full of any other expression which circum stances might call into them at the moment. A graceful figure, clad in a superbly handsome dress worthy of Worth at his best, and an undulating grace of movement that might well be considered fascinating by the susceptible sex-by which I do not mean my own. I confess that I envied her her dress, a lovely black silk with an exquisite arabesque design in front from waist to feet, but her hands were large and thick-one wo...

RIVERSTONE—PAST AND PRESENT. (CONTRIBUTED.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 August 1888

RIVERSTONE-PAST AND PRESENT. (CONTKIBUTIU).) A few years back, five miles through the bush from Windsor the traveller would come upon an open space upon which was built an old railway station, a public house, and, perhaps, a few wood getters' residences scattered here and there. There wore few signs of life about the place, and those were the sounds common to the villages in any portion of an Australian bu.;n. The buildings did not even include among their number the custo mary blacksmith's forge, as at that time there were no demands for anything in the shape of horseshoeing, &c. The open space, with the buildings already enumerated, was known as Riverstone. The visitor to the same place at the present time would discern for many miles around the old spot a change for the better, such as he would little expect, and wiuch would bring pro minently before his mind tne power possessed by man in his march onward in this period of im provement. Several large and commodious stores...
