THE MERCURY. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 21, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 July 1860
THE MERCURY. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 21, 186O. His Excellency the GOVERNOR has taken down the Constitutional key which has for the last ten months been rusting on a nail at Government House and unlocked once more the doors of Par- lament. The key turned reluctantly in the wards with a harsh grating sound, and many stood by, &nbsp; open-mouthed with curiosity, anxious to learn what &nbsp; prospective benefits were likely to be conferred upon them by this somewhat novel proceeding. Whether they have cause for gladness or regret we must leave our readers to judge. Men differ in opinion upon the subject. Some pronounce the &nbsp; Vice-regal Speech to be all that could be desired ; others deny it any merit but that of length. In another column we reprint the Speech in extenso, and as it foreshadows the embryo legislation of the next few weeks it is not, perhaps, unworthy of perusal. The most important topics to which it adverts are Railways and Irrigation, but thes...

AUSTRALIA PAST AND PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 July 1860
AUSTRALIA PAST AND PRESENT. We are the Scotsman's most obedient humble ser- vants. Our contemporary has reckoned us up after the manner of men who are profoundly igno- rant of the subject upon which they write. Per- fectly satisfactory and convincing to his own mind we have no doubt are all his deductions, but, un- fortunately, they are deduced from data as erroneous as can be conceived. Whether our contemporary has drawn his inspiration from some emigrant who has returned to Europe a disappointed man we have not been able, from the internal evidence sup- lied us in the article, to determine. Some of the statements made lead naturally to this conclusion ; whilst others are so wide of the truth as to throw considerable doubt upon it. We think it very un- fair and very ungenerous on the part of the British press to admit into its columns such damaging statements concerning these colonies without first ascertaining whether those statements are true or not. The people of Great Britain i...

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 21 July 1860
THE MONTH. The Australian Champion Stakes for 1861. -A meeting of persons interested in the successful carrying out of the Third Grand Australian Cham- pion Race was held at the Union Club Hotel on the 10th inst., Mr. Tabart in the chair. Several sporting gentlemen were present, and the greatest unanimity prevailed as to the result, which we have no doubt will bo satisfactorily attained. Lot- tere wero read from several well-known turfites, who were unavoidably absent, but who expressed their willingness to promote the desired object. Mr. Davies announced the opening of a subscrip- tion list, contributions having been already re- ceived to upwards of £400. Stewards and other officers were appointed, and resolutions passed to set the matter going, when the meeting separated, an unanimous opinion being expressed that the Grand Champion Race of 1861 would be most suc- cessfully carried out.

THIRD AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION SWEEPSTAKES. [BELL'S LIFE IN VICTORIA.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 23 July 1860
THIRD AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION SWEEPSTAKES. [bell's life in victoria.] The Tasmanians seem anxious to secure the Third Great Sweepstakes for their colony, and on Tuesday last a meeting was held at the Union Club Hotel, Hobart Town, " to mako the necessary ar- rangements to ensure its success." The Chair was taken by Mr. Tabart, who opened the proceedings by reading two letters, one from Mr. John Lord, and the other from Mr. Mold, in both of which the writers apologised for their absence, but expressed theil- desire to assisi in the project. A resolution was subsequently carried, to tho effect that it was expedient that a Third Australian Champion Sweepstakes, the amount, distanco, and terms of which aro tho same as tho first, should bo rim at New Town, Tasmania, in 18G1, tho exact fixture to be named hereafter. No fewer than fourteen ste- wards, a treasurer, and lion, secretary, were then appointed, and it was announced that for the pur- pose of this great race, the subscriptions already...

SECOND AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION SWEEPSTAKES. [bell's life in victoria.] We have a little extra chit-chat to record this week, anent tho great coming event, though tho items can hardly be deemed of any actual impor- tance to anticipated results. The two most no- ticeable facts are tho scratching of Bonny Rose, and the safe arrival at Sydney of tho Sister to Zoe. On Thursday morning a notice was placarded in Kirk's Bazaar as to Bonny Rose's withdrawal, and wo aro informed that on the same day sho was scratched at Sydney. On Friday morning wo re- ceived tho subjoined letter from Mr. Coleman : Dear Sir,-Allow mo to take tho earliest oppor- tunity of informing the racing men of Victoria, that on Thursday last I scratched Bonny Rose for the Sydney Champion Sweepstakes. Somo few weeks back sho showed a disposition to throw curbs, and on Tuesday last, they became so apparent that I deemed it prudent to throw her off work. On Thursday I blistered the filly, and for sometime to come I fear sho wil...
