TURF GOSSIP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HAY STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Hay Standard and Advertiser for Balranald, Wentworth, Maude... — 20 March 1872

TURF GOSSIP. To the Editor of the Hay Standard. Sib. — There has nothing particular trans pired this week as regards any movements being made in arranging matters in connec tion with the coming races. I see that nomi nations are called for the Boy Handicap, nn.i Hay Jockey Club St. Leger, to be sent in by 10 p.m. on the night of the 1st April ; conse quently it is now quite time the programme in tun was issued, witn a view of giving owners of horses a chance of being able to' see and judge for themselves the most suitable events for them to enter their horses in, as the Hav Handicap is only 75 sovs., and people at r. distance, in the event of their having a weight for age horse in company with the°Haudicap nag, would like to know, before nominating what money they could stand to win with the weight for age horse. In point of fact, to en sure a number of nominations fov the Handi cap and St Leger, it is most judicious that the stewards be appointed, and the full pro gramme put forth....

MELBOURNE. March 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Hay Standard and Advertiser for Balranald, Wentworth, Maude... — 20 March 1872

MELBOURNE. (from our own correspondent.) March 15. i There seems some probability that at last we are to have a mail service via New Zealand and San Francisco j for the last week or two Mr. W. H. Webb, accompanied by the Hon. M. Julius Vogel, have been staying here ; their visit being to effect some arrangement whereby Mr. Webb's line might receive a subsidy from Victoria. A few months ago Mr. H. Parkes visited Victoria, as the agent of Mr. Hall s steam company ; the terms offered by Mr. Parkes, were — that Hall's Californian line of mail steamers, would, for £10,000 per annum, convey the Victorian mails, making the head quarters at Sydney, and that for £20,000 per annum, he would inake Melbourne the terminus. The terms at first demanded by Messrs. Vogel and Webb, was — that Victoria should pay £25,000, while New Zealand, which would be the terminus, would pay only £35,000, and at same time reap tlie benefit of being head quarters of a line of steamers that would un doubtedly spend ...

The townspeople of Hay are to be congratu lated on tlieir moderation and good sense, exhibited at the public meeting of the 6th inst. The privilege of meeting in public is often abased by some thoughtless persons, which is a matter much to be regretted, be cause to treat lightly one of the principal public safeguards is to weaken our political power, and enable those rulers who are de spotically disposed to trample on our rights and privileges. It is said of Bismarck that be relies on bis bayonets and cannon to push forward what he calls ' great principles,' and it is an anomaly of a very grave and serious character jivhen we see, in this enlightened age, the people of two great nations like Ger many and France killing each other, because reason is. there dethroned and mad passion has asserted its supremacy. The French meet in public, but the}' are generally suclx an excit able people that reason becomes subverted, and the ' deliberations ' are so only in name. The cold phlegmatic G...

DEATH OF MASSARTI, THE LION TAMER.—HORRIBLE SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hay Standard and Advertiser for Balranald, Wentworth, Maude... — 27 March 1872

DEATH OF MASSARTI, THE LION TAMER. — HORRIBLE SCENE. A correspondent of the Sheffield Independent gives thefollowing har- rowing details of the shocking death of Massarti, the lion tamer, at Man der's Circus, in that town : — ' A terrible scene occurred in Mander's Menagerie, at Bolton, about half past ten o'clock 011 Wednesday night, January 3, Massarti, the lion tamer, being attacked by the lions, as he was giving the last perfor mance in their den, and so fright fully torn and lacerated that his death resulted a few minutes after he was extricated. The menagerie had been in town since the previous Friday, and the daring feats of Massarti, the lion tamer, caused no little sensation amongst those who flocked to witness tlie collection. This was doubtless attributable to some extent to the fact that Massarti had only one arm, his left having been torn off by a lion at the circus of Messrs Bell and Myers, in Liver pool, nine or ten years ago. On the death of Maccomo, the African lion...

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN DANGER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HAY STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Hay Standard and Advertiser for Balranald, Wentworth, Maude... — 27 March 1872

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN DANGER. To the Editor of The Hay Standard. biR, — Ihe rallying cry of ' Ihe Church is in danger' has of old been the political shibboleth of her friends who are ever instinct with conservatism when any one of her an tiquated rights consecrated by tradition has been threatened with extinction. To have ventured to curtail the privileges of well proportioned mother church, never in advance i thou«h not infrequently contending ae-ainst the progressive genius of her age, has afore time been regarded as a sacrilege worthy of everlasting condemnation. Now the cha racteristic tendencies of thought expose every institution that is intertwined with the in terests of the people to the introspective gaze of sometimes irreverent criticism, Kino's, principalities, and powers, hoary with an tiquity cannot longer be fenced about and protected simply by prescriptive right. The right, divine of kings is gone; melted into the light of common day. Right has come to be considere...

To the Editor of the Hay Standard. oir, — i our correspondent y in commenting* on the billiard match played the other evening in the Caledonian, predicted that our towns man would have stood a much better chance of winning ' if he had played with the other ball — very probably he would ; but Q seems quite oblivious to the fact that a second match, 300 up, was played, the balls changing hands, when our townsman was again beaten easily. Uut, leaving tne second game out ot the ques tion, does it not affect the ball played when it comes in contact with an uneven ball ? In winding up Q (in alluding to the professional who rejoices in the illustrious patronymic of Byron ) grows quite facetious and informs us ' that in the course of a month Mr. Byron will be able no doubt to resume his billiard vocations.' It is the general opinion that the pro fessional is a much more superior player than his late opponent. Yours, &c., SPOT WHITE.
