In the neighborhood of the Gasworks a -crowd of fifteen or sixteeir hundred persons were .congregated together, while along the river banks for nearly a mile below this point small knots of spectators were grouped on either side to watch the sport. .The: starting point was reached shortly before five o'clock, and the steamers rounded near the mouth of the Stony Creek, a few hundred yards below the starting flag, and here lay-to waiting for the boats, which were somewhat tardy in making their appearance.

The first annual sale of the yearlings of this famous stud was h«ld on 5th Jan., on the' estate of Mr. George Tty.; Petty,, at Maribyr none, and- drew a very large attendance.. For some time past the sale has been eagerly looked forward to by turfites of every grade, while the lay public have no less regarded the ? occasion with interest, as well as with feelings of national pride. That such a stud should bo in1 our midst is a matter of, self-gratulation, but that it should wear the appearance of becoming a lasting institution speaku volumes for the solidity of our , ciroumstaucos and the prospects of ' bur ? community, as it also refutes any arguniont whi-m points at the degenera tion- of the colonial turf, WhQu.

THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL SHOW. FIRST DAY, TUESDAY, 26TH NOVEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1867

THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL SHOW. Fihst Day, Tuesday, 26th Novembeh. In pursuance of the usual, custom, the im plement and machinery departments of the National Show (whioh is .being held : in con junction with that of the Port Phillip Farmers' Sooiety) were opened on Tuesday, chiefly for the purpose of allowing the judges time to adjudicate the prizes in the several sections. From the anticipated visit of the Prince on , Thursday, tho sooiety doubtless will reap muoh advantage, but' the holiday spirit evoked by his presence in the colony has militated greatly against the success of. the portion of the show already on view, and strenuous exertions need be made to prevent a like result in the live stock department. Tho greater part of the machinery and implements is usually' placed on the ground on Saturday, but on Tuesday they were dropping in '??, until long past noon, and the yards, even at sunset, had far from a finished ap pearance.

It is to the honor of our community that in the intoxicating pursuit of fortune, which is too often 'attended by selfishness and' an indiffers ence to this more pressing physical heoessitie of our fellow-'beings, we have not forgotten the claims which suffering humanity imposes upon us.

RECEPTION AT BALLARAT'. [BY OVU SPECIAL BEPORTEll.J Monday, 9th December. Ballarat is astir with life. Not the ordi nary life of business as it is seen when the bulls and bears meet at the Corner to sell each other, but a ereat. healthy, joyons life, which bespeaks the approach of a great event. For the first tiree in its history, this great district, which has grown into existence in fourteen years, is called on to welcome a son of the Queen of England. That it is prepared to do so right loyally is evident by the signs around. The streets swarm with the animal called man ; they are wreathed in the gayest of gay smiles, and |the houses and house-tops are adorned in a manner it has been cus tomary to adorn houses and housetops in all time since royalty was an institution amongst leal-hearted Englishmen. If the Royal Reception Commission has favored Ballarat more than it has other places in its arrangements, Ballarat has evidently deter mined to show its gratitude in a becoming manner...

THE FREE BANQUET IN THE BOTANICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1867

THE FREE BANQUET IN THE BOTANI- CAL GARDENS.         'The 'Free Banquet or "snack," which was given; to all comers in the Botanical Gardens, on Tuesday, says the Geelong Advertiser, if contrasted with that lately given in Melbourne might be deemed a comparative success, but withal was a failure, if the intention of those who contributed the supplies is taken into consideration. Certainly some of the more rowdy of the gathered multitude appeared to,] enjoy themselves, but to persons of the most ordinary civilised habits the exhibition pre- sented at the tables where the food was tributed was the most disgusting. This, perhaps may not have been the 'fault of those who had the management of the affair, for their arrange- ments evinced considerable care, and reflected credit upon them for the indefatigable manner in which they must have prosecuted their ar- duous and self-imposed task. The scene   of the banquet was the op...

THE PRINCE AT COLAC. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 27 December 1867

THE PBINOE AT GOLAO. In reporting. the proceedings connected with. ;he reception of the Prince at Colac,. the Observer gives the -following particulars : — . ' The first- position of the mounted cavalcade was taken up at some distance past the Great Western Hotel, on a spot known as Horker's reserve, and a line of horsemen, was drawn up on either side of the road, in anticipation of the immediate advent of our expected visitor, it being now about noon, the sun's rays pow erful and the thirst universal. Shortly after this state of things had been arrived at a oourier passed, and informed those who were thus patiently waiting that the object of their anticipations could sot be expected to arrive before three o'olook. This had the' effect of a dissolution, many taking to the shade of the neighboring trees and not a few to the shelter at the not very distant hotel. Some few of the more determined, however, kept their places in the hot sun until half-past one, at which period the road wa...
