Celebrated Riders to Hounds. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
Celebrated Riders to Hounds. THIS is truly a horsey ago we live in ; though eques trianism was a boasted acquirement many centuries ago, I think, however, it will be admitted that it has never been so widely diffused or so well performed as it is at the present period. This is due to foxhunting. When that glorious sport first commenced, we read of a few brilliant stars in the hunting hemisphere; their fame was by comparison with their compeers. At the time when Mr. Meynell reigned in Leicestershire, an increased stimulant to riding was promoted, by the buoyant spirits resorting to that highly favoured region. Among the earliest and most distinguished was Mr., afterwards created Lord, Forester, with his brothor .Salopian Mi*. Childe. These two daring horsemen ap pear to have set the example, and other am bitious companions were ready to emulate their prowess over the luxuriant pasture fields of the midland counties. Lord Forester was said to have had a remarkably fine hand on his hor...

THE AUSTRALIAN Coto & (tatt rg fourmi! SA1UKDAY, JANUARY 22, 1870. The Mail News. THE mail news by the Avoca, as télégraphe from Adelaide on Wednesday night, an published elsewhere in our columns, present no very startling incidents, and is inferior i interest to the intelligence received by way c California on the previous day. One of th best parts of it, however, is the fact that ther is no corroboration of ihat reported tripartit alliance which appeared so formidable in th news by way of America. On the contrary the three parties said to have been concerne» in that ^engagement appear to be otherwis occupied han in joining their forces for air military emergency, defensive or ofíensive. Th Austrian Government we hear little of except ing that the Empress of Austria was presen at the opening of the Ocumeuical Council The Czar, so far from indulging in projects o aggression or conquest, was said to be abou to abdicate in favour of his son, and to retir from a station the car...

The Volunteers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870
The Volunteers. "WHEN the Volunteer Force was called into existence in | Great Britain it was anticipated by the highest mili tary authorities that a modified course of drill only would be necessary to render them efficient for all tho purposes for which they would bc required. It was considered that a fair knowledge of manual, iilatoon, and company drill would be ample, ns it was supposed that the citizen force would not have sufficient time nor inclination to leam moro. How far this has fallen short of thc actual perform ances of the volunteers may bo gathered from thc fact that they hold frequent battalion parades and reviews, conducted solely by thc officers of the force, which are gone through with scarcely a hitch from beginning to end, and which elicit tho commendations of officers of tho regulars and of others competent to judge, with the exception of a few carping critics who can sec no good in anything opposed to their views and interests. At the last Easter lteview of the...

Tho average of the scores mado would not give us tho remotest chanco of winning tho match ; and if Now South Wales is to mako a good match of it, thoy must lay themselves out for good, sound, practice shooting. Tho weather dining the morning shooting was tolerably fine, with a light northerly wind. In the afternoon a very strong north-caster kept tho scores down. Thc number of rounds fired and scores made are as follows :-Five shots each at 200, 500, and GOO yards, Wimbledon targets, Hythe position and scoring-Mr. West, 35; D. Fisher, 35; Allerton, 3...
