HORRIBLE MURDERS BY A CHINAMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

HORRIBLE MURDERS BY A CHINAMAN. A house in Cherry-street, New York, was the scene of a triple munler on Tuesday night, which, for hor rible, cold-blooded atrocity and cruelty is unparalleled in the long list of crimes which that God-forsaken locality can boast. Thc actors in tho tragedy were Henry Acong and Chnvles Arch oca, both natives of China (the first a sailor), and Acong's wife, Sarah Ann, an Englishwoinau. For a long time past they have been living in a small tenement-house, Nb. 07, Cherry street, Acong and his wife occupying the two fourth floor front rooms, and Archoca one on the same floor, opening into a hall. Acong was a steward on board a merchant vessel plying between Liverpool and a Chinese port, and was often absent from home for months at a time. On Saturday last he returned from a voyage, and_ seemed in tho best of spirits, and earnestly and feelingly greeted his family and his friend, Archoea, who had known him for years, and had cared for his (Acong's) family du...

Domestic Recipes. PANCAKES.-Make a light batter of eggs, flour, and milk ; a little salt, nutmeg, and ginger may bo added ; lemon should bo served to eat with them. Or, when eggs are soarce, make the batter with small-beer, ginger, and so forth, or water, with flour, and a very little milk, will serve, but not so well as eggs and all milk.

Tho river that lay in its dusky repose Through tho long lono hours of night, Now laughs in the lustro that sunrise throws, And ripples in rosy light : And tho lulls that loomed like shadowy ghosts A clearer outline tako ; And tho white sails glimmer along tho coasts Dear my lady, awake ! Tho violet lifts its eye of blue To the bending blue above And the roses, bathed in a drench of dew, Are breathing of beauty and lovo ; And tho lily stoops its head to kss Its shadow within the lake O never was morning so lovely as this ! Dear my lady, awake ! Awake ! for music is flooding tho air, And melting along the deep. When nature is all awake and so fair, O, why should my lady sleep ? A passionate sigh bogins ...

A Living Enoch Arden. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

A Living Enoch Arden. A resident of St. Louis -writes to Thc Democrat of that city a singular story of the battle of Chicka niauga. It was suggested by witnessing tho play of Enoch Ardon. Ho says : A sergeant in my regiment was wounded at Chicka mauga, and was reported dead. Ho was seon to foll in the heat of tho engagement, and om- lines being pushed back, tho body was not recovered until next day. "When tho poor follow was found he was BO . mutilated by being trampled on by the cavalry that ; his faco could not be recognized. A comrade, however, found in his broast pockot a miniature of his wife and sent it to her with an account of hiB ' death. It turned out that the body was not that of Tom C-, but a sorgcant of another company. Tom, desperately wounded, foil into tho hands of the enemy and was sent to Andersonville, where the Rebel surgeon cut of one of his arms and one of his legs, and, in spite of his bad fare, he recovered in duo time.

Morality of the Stage. DION BOUOICAULT—A LETTER IN DEFENCE OF " FORMOSA." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Morality of the Stage. DION BOUOIOAULT-A LETTER IN DEFENCE OF " FORMOSA." - Some severo criticisms having .been made on Mr. Dion Boucicault's new play, "Formosa," he defends it in a letter to The London Daily Telegraph in which ho says : We know there are certain vices, like certain thorough fares, reserved for tho exclusive enjoyment of tho upper classes. Tho exposure of scenes of aristocratie profligacy forms tho subject of my play-" Formosa ; or, tho Railroad to Ruin." I am charged with violating tho reverence I ought to feel for the blackguardism of mybotters. If my frail heroine had been, like Jane Shore, a poetic prostitute, Ishould have escaped censure; but I am only a realistic dramatist, so my heroine is a fact, a natural production wo seo daily in the Park, and nightly at tho opera. Her oxistence is the offence of whioh. I am 'guilty. The truth is tho trouble. It is not contended that the scenes I have represented are false ; but it is urged that such scones and person age...

The Drama in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

The Drama in Sydney. Notwithstanding tho complaints of fompty houses, a general observer of tho patronage extended to tho drama must admit that, taking tho whole year through, it is fairly supported. Somo affirm that the character of dramatic representation alfords an index to the oxtent of refinement that prevails ; that tho drama is the most refined ploasuro of a . polished peoplo ; that it forms their manners, and ; has no inconsiderable share in then- morals. There ia no doubt that from tho intorest of the scene, and tho consequent seeming reality, the aotion is, as it were, example, and precept is thus en forced by its verification in practical lifo. In the delu sion of tho sceno tho shadow becomes tho substance. Tho theatre is the stage of lifo, and tho drama a real action. j If this be so, and we are not going to question it, great responsibility in a large city rests with those to whom the management of the theatre is confided; and it is not too much to say that tho peoplo o...

The Bogan. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

The Bogan. [FllOM OUR COIUtESl'ONDEXT.] The weather is frightfully hot, yet everything looks well. Some evil-disposed person set fire to Mr. Furlong's bush fence, in two places ; so he evidently in tended to burn it down. About three quarters of a mile was burned in ono place, and about thirty yards in the other. Shepherds don't like the fencing system, as it throws them out of enqiloyment. Mr. Furlong has now 20, OOO of his sheep at largo, which, if shepherded, would give employment to thirty people. Everything here is as dull as ditch water. No money at all knocking about. There is not even a traveller to be seen. Public-houses now really seem all the rage. Mr. Burns's Ten-mile Waterhole, is now finished, and in a few days he will have to bow to the powers that be at Obley, which I consider both an injustice and wrong. Now, supposo that the J.P.'s says his place is not required, where is then Iiis redress '! And from what I can learn, this objection will be raised by a rich neighb...

Newcastle. £ (FROM OUK CORRESPONDENT.) y Since the elections Newcastle has been unusually ff quiet, and news as a necessary consequence, has been a V rather scarce commodity. True, we have had the ¿ holidays with their concomitant amusements, but to | describe these once is to describe them for ever. I have | not, therefore, thought it worth while to trouble you p with any account of our annual regatta and other F sports. Tho forthcoming municipal election« are likely f; to enliven us up a little, as from all I can hear they T are likely to be rather sharply contested. There are ï already three or four candidates in tho ï field for tho City "Ward ; two or three for ? Macquarie Ward, and as many or more for Honeysuckle j. Ward. Several of the candidates are well known local ' men, and great efforts will be made to put them in the Council. A general feeling prevails that the attack on '£ cliqueism, which resulted in the return of Dlr. Lloyd, should be followed up, and any men who prom...

The Betting Market. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

The Betting Market. There has not been a great deal of business done this week : the largest amount has been on the double for the" Leger" and " Gold Cup," for which Charonfor the former and the Earl for the latter have been operated upon to a large extent. There aro a great many inquiries after Moselle and a disposition to back her, and although Barbarian is nominally second favorite for the Legar, Moselle is taken most in the doubles after Charon. For tho Gold Cup, Tim is very firm at seven to one, all the money being taken as soon as offered at that price ; six to one is now the highest offer against linn. Kestrel has boen backed during the week to -win three thousand pounds. Misty Morn would also bé backed at hundreds to three, but there are no layers at that figure. Florence, tho Bose of Denmark's filly, has been backed for the Champagne Stakes. This race promises to be a veiw interesting event tins year.

Turf Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Turf Gossip. RACING matters have been dull indeed during the last week, and the "turfites," when visible, sit moodily on the form outside Tattersall's, and hope for a better stato of things and better times ; but for another month, at least, we must expect matters to remain in statu quo. At present, instead of Charon, Thu Whiffler, or Bar barian being on everybody's lips, whenever a knot of people get together, they invariably "talk" politics. On the Melbourne side they seem to be in the same fix, and, but for tho passing excitement about tho "little game " played by tho telegraph clerks, on receipt of telegrams from Sydney about Circassian winning the last Metropolitan, would bo as dull as wo are. In Tasmania they aro getting ready for the Launces ton meeting, and Strop and Bishopbourne have quitted Melbourne for their nativo island. The Launceston pro gramme has not as yot been issued, or, at all events, has not yet reached us up to this time, BO we cannot say anything about the t...

Victoria Sporting News. [FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 22 January 1870

Victoria Sporting News. [FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.] IN cricket and horseflesh, there is nothing doing this week, though here and there an odd amount is booked on the forthcoming Sydney events. Until the Geelong handicap was mado public there was little speculation in that line, and some of thc bookmakers have made a country tour to while away their time. Strop and Bishopbourno have gone across tho water, though thc former is entered for Geelong ; his return in time for that meeting depends entirely upon the weights just put upon him in thc handicap proving satisfactory. Tho Miners' races nt Ballarat arc advertised for thc Ilth, 12th, and 13th February. Tho Miners' Handicap and the Corner arc the principal events, and the 20 sovereign steeplechase, on tho third day, will probably bring out a strong field. Tho Colao races-will be held during this month, in stead of, as usual, in March, and tho Kynotonjautumn Í>rogramme may bo expected in a few days. A few ong shots on double ...

Cricket. PR0GRA3BIE OF TO-DAY'S MATCH. Albert 1st v. 15 Victoria (con.) on A C. G. Albert 2nd v. 1st Alfreda. Warwick 1st v. 1st Caxton, in Domain "Warwick 2nd v. Newtown 2nd, on Newtown Ground. WE nave observed with great regret how the noblest of out-door sports has lost gTound in this colony, more particularly in and about the metropolis. It is of little use now to ask the cause-no two persons are likely to agree on that. It remains only to remedy the evil, and, if possible, place the game on a better footing. Actuated by this desire, " we take the field" determined to do our best, and we trust, with the aid of several lovers of the game, who have kindly pro mised their assistance, that ere long a different state of things will be brought about, or that, at least, a change may be effected, which certainly cannot be for the worse. In our efforts to improve the position of cricket we shall adopt such a course as is in our opinion best calculated to further our object. We shall stri...
