WIMBLEDON PRIZE MEETING. INTERNATIONAL MATCH. England versus Scotland. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 24 September 1863
WIMBLEDON PBIZE MEETING. IiTEENATJOSAL MaTOR. England versut Scotland. The event of the day yesterday was ths In ternational Match between England and Scotland. In modern times the ballad ot ' Chevy Chase ' and the deeds which in spired it Lave passed very much out of re collection. We have no longer border fends to maintain tbe distinctly national feelings of the two countries. Bat for all that there were indications yesterday that the old rivalry has not altogether died out, and that when a legitimate occasion presents itself for exhibiting that spirit in its better and more patriotic form, it cesses to be latent, and springs into full activity in the breast of every Celt and Southron. The groups ronnd the firing points yesterday may not have been as numerous as those which as sembled to witnsis the match between the Lords and Commons, but they were cer tainly more enthusiastic. Every bull's-eye or miss— and of the latter there were very few — might almost have been scored from th...
EUROPEAN NEWS. TRANSPORTATION TO AUSTRALIA. LONDON, MONDAY, JULY 27,1863. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 24 September 1863
EUEOPBAK -NT-EWe. TBANSPOBTATION TO AUSTRALIA. (From the Some Neat.) London, Monday, Jult 27, 1863. The substance of the Beport of the Com missioners on Secondary Punishments will be found in another column. A large por tion of tbe report treats of the ticket-of-leave system ; bnt the part which will attract most attention amongst our readers in j Australia is that which relates to trans portation. It will be seen that the com missioners strongly recommend recurrence to that mode of punishment. Whether go vernment will adopt the recommendation remains yet to he seen. Our own opinion is that, should the recommendation be carried into effect, it will be on a much more limited scale than that suggested by the commis sioners. There are two interests involved in this question; and unfortunately they are diametrically opposed to each other, nor is it easy to perceive any means by which they can be conciliated.
