TIPS BY THE DRUMMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 4 March 1882

TIPS BY THE DRUMMER. Wednesday and Thursday next we shall have the C.J.C. meeting run off, and it pro mises to be most successful. The weights for the Publicans Purse, Ladies Purse, and Carcoar Town Plate are out. The horses engaged in these three events appears to me to be a very mediocre lot of aiiimals, and of the twelve which are nominated there is not half-a-dozen -who could get to the end of a moderately run two mile race. For the Publicans Purse I should like to select Sazarac as one of my pick, but he has had a little too much work on his sore understandings, besides he is a doubtful starter. To plump straight I like the chances of— SPARANZA VELOX GOOD NEWS. Ladies Purse we have a sorry lot, I shall therefore go for Good News, Helena, or Little John ; one of these to catch the judge's eye first. Carcoar Town Plate we have nearly the the same crowd as in the Publicans Purse, and of these I like the chances of Partner as I think from performances he is the best two mile animal...

BIGGA NEWS. (from our correspondent.) On Saturday afternoon or rather evening last a Itangaroo -drive took place at Dingy Flat, the result of which exceeded the most sanguine expectations of all, and astonished even the -shootists themselves. The party consisted of ten armed with guns, and six drivers. Unfortunately it was left to ton late an hour before a start was made, and consequently it was dark before those in ani bush 'heard the cracks of the approaching whips, which were driving everything before them. Then commenced a heavy filing from the guns at everything they saw moving in front of Hie whips, aud at last when the sport was given over for the niglit, and spoil was collected it was found to -consist of nine s'leejx, three head of cattle, nud two kanga roos, «nd 'one gentleman insisted that there were more dead, but that it was too dark to find them, ?however they ought to be quiet satisfied with their total, one selector had a bucket at dm -door drilled through by a bulle...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. MOUNT M'DONALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 4 March 1882

MINING INTELLIGENCE. MOUNT M'DONALD. New Heef. — In tlie Australasian Asso ciation Paddock a little prospecting work lias proved the existence of what appears to lie a well defined and permanent reef. The quartz of winch it consists ou the eastern bido is in character remarkably similar to that found in the rich Balmoral mine. So far, however, it difl'ers in these very impor tant respects that uo gold, and but very little pyrites has yet 'been found in it What ap pears to be a western wall outcropped on the piirface, and a little pick work proved the ex istence of considerable quantities of brown and white pyrites ; as this reef occurs in the eastern side of the new dam bank it will no doubt before long be thoroughly prospected ;iud from the favourable situation which it occupies, it will, should it prove to be nuriferouB be capable of being very economi cally worked. A little prospecting it is quite evident widiiu this ? valuable property would prove the continuation ©I known lines...

CLUBS, PROPRIETARY CLUBS, AND PRIVATE PUBLIC CLUBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 4 March 1882

CLUBS, PROPRIETARY CLUBS, AND PRIVATE PUBLIC CLUBS. The stringent manner in which the | Publicans Act of 1882 is being enforced has i caused an immense increase in the club business, and we expect in a short time to see one or more established in every little town, whether they will be a benefit or not it is difficult to say, but there is one thing certain their existence will materially damage the trade of the legitimate publican, over whom they will have the advantage in many ways, viz., no license to pay, no specified hour to close at, no police supervision, music, cards, billiards, and bagatelle, allowed at all tames, without restriction of any sort, in fact they will give to the poor man the privileges enjoyed only by the wealthier, it remains to be seen if the poor man will enjoy such privileges without abusing them. London -'Figaro' says: — A privatepub lic is a club which is established as a sub stitution for a public-house. The number of such clubs is steadily increasing, a...

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF WOUNDING. The ' Yass Courier ' reports that a few ?days ago Martin Kelly and Patrick Coady, residents on the Murrumbidgee, in the Yass district, had been drinking together at the house of the former. Kelly at length went to bed, and having been asleep for some time was (aroused in great pain, and found his thigh cut open, ana saw uoaay walking out of the bedroom with a knife in his hand. Kelly was brought into Yass to the Royal Hotel (Mr W. Comins') where he lies in a precarious condition, and very slight hopes are entertained of his recovery. Upon the fact being made known to the police, Mr Inspector Breunan proceeded to the residence of Coady, who he heard had disappeared, and not finding him at the house came upon his tracks, which he (Mr Brennan) followed, and discovered Coady in Euralie paddock.

TOO GOOD AS A SUBSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 4 March 1882

TOO GOOD AS A SUBSTITUTE. Shaw was pitifully anxious to win the recent match in Melbourne. Slight was disabled, and the Victorians consequently batted in the second innings with nine men. In the light of this it is rather disappointing to read the following:— '? During Saturday Slight received a terrific blow in the face, which will probably incapacitate l.im from taking further part in the match. Tlie fieldsman was running swiftly to field a leg hit from Ullyett, which was ftkirning along the turf with the velocity usually attained when the Yorkshire batsman opens his sboulJers for a trig hit. Just as Slight stopped to Geld tire ball it appeared to rise bo suddenly that the fieldsman could make no effort to save himself, and -consequently re *tt-iv«u? a fprt^lile lilnw llinf* liplnw l.lm taff. atro The injury was a severe one, and it was some time before Slight recovered sufficiently to reach, with the -assistance of two -of his comrades, the ?pavilion, where prompt surgical treatm...

COWRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 4 March 1882

COWEA.' (from our correspondent.) After a long time I send you a few items of local interest. Nature has not been too kind to us lately, month after month passes without the much needed rain, and as a consequence both water and grass are fast vanishing. Tho river here has for some i time ceased to run, and now the water I supply is procured from holes sunk in the sand, a state of things unknown for many years since. Recently the price of water has been doubled, but not without consider able objection on the part of tho customers who with good reason ^consider that ' the great quantity consumed and the short distance of cartage should produce ample remuneration, at the original price, viz., Is. per large cask. On account of the scarcity of water between here and Blayney the carriers have struck, and now demand 9d. per bushel for wheat carriage. Taking into consideration the high figure of grain, and the fact that the principal stores are glutted with it besides the present hardships ...

SIOKE TEMPERANCE TWADDLE. When so influent in 1 a body as tlie National Temperance Society hear of so ridiculous a -move as to ?petition for a national prohibition law, us it did yesterday, it ought to set, its foot down 'firmly and prevent its subordinates making fools of themselves and bringing an honourable emise into contempt. The society knows perfectly well that no such law, in the shape of a constitutional amendment., ?could hope to get tlirur.gh 'Congress^ that scarcely any States would attempt to ratify it, not even Maine and Kansas would ever ?enforce it. What fke society cfcould do is to 8P| press instead -of encourage sueh a petition and save temperanne pens, infe, and paper for a wore -useful -worTs.
