ECHOES OP SPORT. An old gentleman who takes more interest in politics thnn cricket asked one of the Sydney Grammar School team which was recently in Mel bourne, ' Is that lad Parkes any relation to the great Parkes ?' The boy spoken to evidently knew less cf politics than he did of cricket, for he replied ' He is the great Parkea.' In crossing the American continent someone put the car-conductor up to frighten Jarvis by a sug gestion that the train might be stuck up by Indians and that it would be well to hide- their watches and money. Jarris placed his watch, chain, and money in his souks, pulled down the blind and kept to his bunk with bated breath and whispering humbleness, and never slept a wink the whole night long. We have often heard where horses which have made themselves famous ou the turf, have boea seen some time afterwards in a carriage, buggy, or even pulling in a cab. On Monday last might have been noticed a placed horse in the Mel bourne Oup, and a strong favourite in...

Many of the bridges and. culvert of the town are in a most dangerous and unprotected condition and if step9 are not in stantly taken to have them properly fenced I shall have the sad satisfaction (?) of, before long, record ing a bad accident or two ; -with a consequent action for damages in the local court, and the possibility of a prosecution for manslaughter against our borough authorities. The unfenced state of the two bridges that adjoin each other in Wyndham and Anvil streets, near the Church of! England is notorious, the abutments being only fenced on one side and as there is a sheer fall of 10fu from the roadway to the bed of the creek the great danger to vehicular traffic must be apparent. A convincing proof of this — if euch were needed — vras given U3 on Sunday last, when Mr. OsT»orne, J.P., was driving over the Anvil-street bridge, coming from ch...
