NAVAL AND MILITARY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 13 January 1887

NAYAIi AND MlLITAJtY. °n Saturday afternoon last a detach ment of the Naval Artillery Volunteers went outside tho Heads for gun drill in tho hopper barge Neptune. Lieutenant Newsham, and sub-Lieutenants Cheffins and Walsh wore in command. Tho Neptune steered a course about S.E. for about seven miles against an extraordi nary heavy sea, which pitched and tossed .her about to a groat extent. However gun drill was proooedod with, and the men, as nsnal, gave every satisfaction. No firing was done with the big gunB, but rifle practice was indulged in by throwing objects overboard, and aiming at them from uncertain distanoes. It is pleasing to know that in almost every instance the objects wero sunk, which proves the cor rect shooting of the Naval artillerymen.

THE HOBARTVILLE SALE. On the 20th of tlio prcsont month Mr. T. S. Clibborn will conduct the unnual sale at Hobartvillc, tho breeding cstab lislimeut of Mr. Andrew Town. This truly wonderful ostato' is known far and wide for producing tho cronm of our rncehorses. and each year attracts buyers from all tlio colonies. Tlie dams aro so well known that a repetition of their names and pedigrees wi^uld be super fluous. With respect to sires it may bo mentioned that the following will be represented by tlie youngsters .- — Mari- byrnoiig, Sardonyx, JCpigram, Sornnus, Chestor, Grosvenor, and Grandmaster. No doubt a deal of interest will be centred in Sardonyx's progeny, as tlioso of this year are liis first. However, they are a wonderfully well grown lot, and a deal of competition will likely result for most of tliem. Besides the tliorough bred raceis there are a lot of trotting yearlings, by Childe Harrold and, Honesty, as well as draught stock.

The weather was all that could be desired, tho events very well contested, and prizes liberal, considering that they had all been subscribed for. Tlio chief feature of the day was the Sunny Cornor Grand Handicap of for which 27 had nominated, and 22 accepted. This must have been very gratifying to the liandi- I cappers to find so many satisfied with their work, and the close finishes went to show that they were well up to their busi ness. Tho hon. secretary (Mr. J. Crossley) was a real demon at tho game, for ho wa3 here, there, and everywhere, and the officials were all up to their work ; in fact it was a most successful day's sport.
