Winners and Owners. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 20 March 1875

Winners and Owners. The most successful owners of racehorses during the past season were Lord Fal niouth and 'Mr. Launde,' who are each credited with winnings ? of more than £15,000. Lord Falmourh has been placed at the head of the list by the victors- of Atlantic in the Two Tbousand Guineas and the unprecedented success of his two-years-olds, all of which con tributed something to his winning score. ' Mr. TamiU' of course, owes his success mainly to the triumphs of Apology in the One Thousand Guineas, the Oaks, the Coronation Stakes, and the St. Leger, but Holy Friar, having secured six out seven prizes, helped to swell die amount by over jfzooo. M. Lefevre's horses were second or third for most of the important events of the season, none of which fell to his share, but he is, nevertheless, credited with ,£14,624, which has been earned by his numerous and minor handicaps, where they formed a considerable proportion of the entries. Though the ammmt won seems at first sight large, it...

"Best Seats." [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 20 March 1875

'Bett Seats.' (Host ItotjiO xtesua Jkana* «/ J&mc) It seems ridiculous, but it is none the l«c true, that concert-givers — we refer particularly to die series of orchestral concerts in a large hall — find die most serious obstacle to their success indie fact that so many people are so set and hard to please in what would seem to be tne very secondary matter of the choice of seats. Do they really tore good mnsic? and shall they not be glad to get it in any seat in a fine hall where they can listen and enjoy it undisturbed? We have a fine hall, and a very large one — one in which music sounds well in all parts. ? It requires a large audience fiUing a large hall, at popular prices, to make any orchestral conceits pay then way. Yet many of our concert-goers act as if it should be taken for granted that only a small portion of die fine large hall is fit tor use. 'Give us such and such seats, and we shall be glad to attend your concerts; otherwise we must respectfully (sometimes '...

This machine is nothing more nor less than a contrivance tor die application of an alleged new I motor — a new principle of motive power as far superior to steam as steam was superior to wind and water - power.

OUR BRISBANE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 20 March 1875

OUR BRISBANE LETTER. 1 The floods in this district, altiumgh severe in some localities, especially in the neighbourhood ?of Ipswich, «mar.g loss and even rain to many farm settlers, have been of short dotation, and are already reckoned among die things of die past, the cessation of rain for a space of eight davs «ndin£ on Sunday last, having permitted *he overflowing -waters to subside. The Braner is reported to hare risen within five feet of the fioodmark or 1864, bat the Brisbane River has not been greaiiy swollen — the highest point reached Soring the late flood being probably not more than six feet above high water spring tides. It is suppose! thai the deep catlings recently made in the rirer channel allowed greater facility for the outward flow of the current on this occasion than existed formerly. Bat I do not set mnch importance upon this theory, as it is eritlent that the Brisbane is not subjected to heavy floods dmilar to those which occur in the Fitzroy and its tributary r...
