The Autumn Moeting of the Victoria Rao ng Club was commenced at Flomingtou on tho 1st March in tho proscnoo of n fairly nuino'rous body of spectators, including his Excellency the Go vernor and a party from .. Government House. Tho afternoon . was .rendered enjoyable by boautifulwoathor, but the racing was of a most disappointing description, only ono ovent in tho programme possessing any interest. Thewinnoi' of tlio first-race was generally looked upon as a cortainty, in two others successful backers had to lay 3 to 1 on their fancies, and in the St. Loger thero was no betting at all. Mr. James 'White, who usually scores heavily at tho Autumn. Mooting, won three racos, commencing with tho opening ovont, tho Hopeful Stakes, in which 'tho positions were filled by Marco, Aimeslqy and Dishcloth. The stable com panions!

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 April 1890

The Government have decided to meet Farlia ? lriuiit early in May next. This is a slight de parture from custom and precedent. : The middle of Juno hns hitherto witnessed the spec tacle ; of lior Majesty's commons being sum moned -for the despatch of business, but ex periencb has too clearly pointed for ycais to the necessity for a change. The work of legislation during the summer months is intolerable. The ' heat and consequent physical lassitude, and at timos the . pugnacity of mombers, havo been found '-highly detrimental to the conduct of . business, and it may bo safely alleged that most of. the jobs, perpetrated under tho guise of the public welfare, bavobeon pushed through with perfect 'impunity during tho hot soauon. Furthor, it may bo stated thnt tho alter ation has' '^bbbtfi'^inade in fulfilment- of: a' promise, .on the part i%-, of the Premier, -who was anxious last year for r en sons best known to himself, to bring tho session' to an o.vrly close.

It is within these bounds, the Mallacoota Inlet, the subject of our illustration, is situated. On tlio very border of the colony, with Gabo Island a few miles to the north, tho inlet may be seen marked in bold letters on tho map of Victoria. But official acquaintance with tho locality commences. nnd ends with t his. indi- cation of its position. The inlet is one of very considerable extent, and it receives at its head the waters of tho Genoa River. Tlio enclosure is studded with numerous islands, and the scenery presents many features of . interest.
