THE TURF [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 20 October 1860

T H h' TURF: As far as New South Wales is concerned, we might without much injustice, leave racing mattera, for this week, at least, to take care of themselves. ' Nothing has been done; and what is worse, very little seems likely to be done. ' ' The proposed1 holiday, sport for New. year's day has, we fear, been nipped in the bud; the Jockey Club having we believe refused the appli- cation of Tattersalls Club for the use of the Rand- wick course. As however a meeting will be held at Tattersall*» within a few days, at which no doubt, some energetic steps' will be taken ; we postpone for the present any expression of opin- ion upon this very inopportune íealisation of a DFAD LOCK. Up to the time of writing, we have no return of the racing at Murrurundi which came off on the, lltli and 12th. i In another column will be found' a letter from the Secretary ¡ of the Illawarra Tarf Club.

' THE case of LAVELLE, the unfortunate corporal of "Sappers and Miners who was recently sentenced hy a court martial to one hundred and sixty-eight days imprisonment, Has "been very properly made the subject of investigation by a Parliamentary "Committee, on the motion of Mr. LUCAS. : , This case furnishes another example of the dis- creditable modus operandi adopted in our public departments,' particularly that of Railways. LAVELLE, it-appears, was employed, with others of liis corps on a Railway survey, and that he pre- ferred certain charges'of embezzlement against a brother corporal named FRANCIS. .These charges were investigated by CAPTAIN MARTINDALE, who -decided that they were unfounded, and LAVELLE ivas arraigned before a court martial for falsely ?aspersing the character of FRANCIS.
