THE VOLUNTEERS. PROPOSED INTERNATIONAL RIFLE MATCH. SYDNEY BATTALION V. 1ST GLOUCESTERSHIRE, WE are informed that a match is on the tapis between the Sydney Battalion Volunteer Rifles and the 1st Gloucestershire Battalion (England.) The details are not completed, but we believe the conditions will be nearly as follows :-Thirty or forty men aside, firing seven rounds at each of the distances, of 200, 500, and 600 yards, at Wimbledon targets, Hythe position, with any rifle of Government pattern. The Sydney men to fire upon any day during January, February, or March ; the Englishmen in April, May, or June. The Sydney men will need to get into good practice, in anticipation of this match, as their opponents have amongst them some of the finest shots in the kingdom, including Mr. Lane, Queens' prize winner ; Mr. Gibbs, maker of the Metford Rifle, &c. ; and they will not score so easy a victory as they did when firing against the Southampton Volunteers. In connexion with the above...

ASCENT OF MR. GALE'S BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 8 January 1870
ASCENT 0F MR. GALE'S BALLOON. The interest taken by the public in Mr. Gale's second appointment for a balloon ascent was fully evinced by the crowds of persons who, on Wednesday after- noon, in carriages and vehicles of every description, on horseback, and on shanks' pony, poured into the Outer Domain, with a view of seeing the adventurous aeronaut off. Had a general half-holiday been pro- claimed for the occasion, it would scarcely have had the effect of drawing together a larger or more respect- able assemblage. Fully twenty thousand persons must have been present; probably many more. The peri- &nbsp; patetic vendors of refreshments and the industrious proprietors of the merry-go-round were early on the field, and they all appeared to be doing exceedingly well. The site chosen for the ascent was close to the en- trance to the Botanic Gardens. The balloon was at 9 o'clock placed over a gaspipe near the central walk of the Domain, but was, by the instructions of Mr. C. Moore...
