Latest Peep of the Shows, (SEE PAGE 369.) MONTY BROWNE, the scarlet meteor of the biggest operatic, success ever run in Brisbane, leaves hero on Monday. He is bound for Adelaide. What is his business there don't matter much to. Brisbane people. But, as he is as well-known there as the local horse-trams or the Torrens dam (beg par ding, "weir") he is bound to shove the fair Emelie triumphantly through the most treacherous theatrical waters that exist in anyplace in Australia. There is in the Emelie Melville Opera Company, a white bearded gentleman who has an easy grace that should kill at 1000 yards, but as he views the world principally through a pigeon-hole and hasn't time to smile, the carnage is not dread ful. His name is James Kitts, I don't know why I mention him, except that he the other day pleaded that Kitts should be overhauled at regular intervals by the Custom-house officers of the press. Kitts' principal business seems to be stock-taking, which is nothing remarkable but ...

The entries in all were about 125, and in nearly every race good fields showed out. Of course, the pro vision by the Railway Department was inadequate, but people have become so accustomed to extreme discomfort in railway travelling when they go pleasure-seeking, that they don't swear half so hardly now. The Sports Committee worked Hard, find.: were rewarded by pronounced success: the weather was lovely, attendance excellent, com petitions keen, handicaps (with-few exceptions) about as good , as could be made, the winners all, happy, and the losers going to play old gooseberry next lime, ' (Why I have only been in train a week, or something Ve...
