SPOKTINtt. [THE secretaries of all local clubs and sporting organisations are requested to furnish us with reports of their meetings or gatherings at as early a date as possible. Sporting fixtures will be gladly inserted, and any information of general interest received with thanks ] AQUATICS. THF excitement about the Searle-Kemp race is growing, and lots of money being laid on the re sult. No race ever rowed here is looked forward to with such interest. The Kemp party are con fident, and are laying lots of money on their man, and Searle's friends are equally so, and are heap ing the filthy lucre on the straight-going Clarence man. The race eventuates next Saturday, and will prove one of the keenest ever witnessed on the champion course. Competent judges are of opinion that there will not be a pinch of snuff difference between the two men, and that the best of them will win.

FREEMAN'S REACH (FROM OUR CORRESPONDKNT.) CONPERT.-A very succesful concert was held in the Schoolroom, on Friday evening last, The object was to assist Mr. Gibbs, who for some years has been bed-ridden, and consequently unable to earn a living. The idea was originated by the popular school teacher of the locality, Mr. Walker, and he was ably assisted by other residents in the locality, and by visitors from Windsor. The attendance at the concert was very large. Mr. Gallagher played the accompaniments in first class style, and the various items were much enjoyed. The ball was opened by Miss Evans, whose pianoforte solo " Marche Hongroise " was excellently played. The other ladies who took part were-Miss Burness, a song; and Miss Dunstan, song.

KURRAJONG HEIGHTS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888

KURRAJONG HEIGHTS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] The Foundation Stone of the St. James' Church of England was laid on Friday last, October 12, by the Very Rev. the Dean of Sydney, in the presence of a good number of parishioners. The Choir mustered in full force and chanted the 84th Psalm and sang the selected Hvxnns in such a manner as to elicit a word of commendation from the Dean. At the close of an appropriate address by the Dean, the goodly sum of ^52 7s. was placed on the stone. Refreshments were kindly provided by Mrs. Peck and Miss Lucas. The whole affair was a pronounced success, and the residents of the locality may be congratulated on having taken steps to secure what will prove a very pretty place of worship. To the Rev. Mr. Plume, the incumbent, is due a deal of credit for the energetic manner in which he has worked to have the church erected. The Rev. gentleman is very popular witluhis parishioners, and in fact with all classes in the locality-and deservedly so.

CORRESPONDENCE. WINDSOR HALF-HOLIDAY. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888

CORRESPONDENCE. WINDSOR HALF-HOLIDAY. [TO THE EDITOR.] SIR.-Since you decline to publish my reply to " Fitzbattleaxe," on the plea of its being " too personal "-I admit that it is personal, and also, 1 may add, retaliatory-you will perhaps, kindly dojne justice in giving me space to put "Schnap hergoschen " right in one or two particulars where he has erred. If that unpronounceable individual will be good enough to look over my letter of the 29th ultimo, he will not find a single word referring to Messrs. Padley Bros, opening or closing at 6 o'clock. What 1 uin say was thaL " in my opinion nothing beat the good old-fashioned working hours of from 6 to 6," and, moreover, I had nothing to say as to their hours of opening or closing. As a matter of fact, this firm closes at 7, not at G, as your correspondent says-and opens at the same hour as other firms in the same business. You know, as well as I do, that my letter cannot bear the construction put upon it by " Schnap hergoschen," and...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to me, and if YOU speak me fair I'll tell you news, indilierenl «ood to either. "Not only has he {Sir Henry Parkes) advocated conflicting policies at different times, and thus been guilty of the political offence with which he charges others, but he has also been the means of CAUSING (?) men who scorned to act as he had done from attaining that place and prominence which were their due," This excerpt is taken from a leading article which appeared in last week's Goulburn ADVERTISER. TO the ADVER TISER Sir Henry has always stood in the same relation that the proverbial red rag does to the infuriated bull, and it is not strange, therefore, to mark that the individuals who guide its destinies Hook at everything which affects the old warrior through the same binoculars. Of course, every journalist in the country has a perfect right to criticise, pro and con, the politicians of the day, but when men are actually prejudiced, and hold hard and fast opinions, which ...

I am wonderfully stupid to-night.' But she was not stupid at talking, for during the remainder of the evening she txoTe her part in conversation with all her usual sprightliness and case. How glad was she when she found her self in her own room, with liberty to think, to try and calm the throbbing, ex cited heart, and to face the morrow and the days beyond. 4 How would it end ?' she asked herself, as she walked backwards and forwards .over the soft carpet, or sunk into a chair before the fire. But her belief in Leslie's power was .the unquestioning but not unreasoning faith which soothed her. The next morning, Dan vers Vane and Leslie D'Eyncourt were together in the ^dining-room after breakfast. .Nina had left them. The former looked excited and anxious.
