OTTR INTELLIGENT AND NOBLE-HEARTED CHIEF MAGISTRATE.

THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 26 January 1861

THE TURF. Wn cannot öfter our rentiers much in the" way of racing news, simply because there has been no lacing; and all we can do is to dip into futurity. Tlie fiist event on the card is Parramatta for Mon- day una Tuesday next, when, all thin;.s consid- ered, we expect to see a pretty lair show of people, and spoit. This little gathering will whet the appetites of our racing men for the good things ofBathtirst during die first wei-k ol next month ; but ive are rather fearful that the latter races, usually so successful, will this year have to succumb to the general pressure, and dul ness ol' the times. As regards the prospects of our Metropolitan April Meeting, we have several reasons to consider them somewhat less gloomy than they appeared n week or two back. 15 es id es the horses we have pre- viously alluded to, Mr. M'Kellar has two "yoting uns" up, a colt and a filly. 1'he latter, by "Waverly" out of " Cressida," is three years old, and a very fine looking filly ; and the colt...
