AGRICULTURAL REVIEW OF THE WEEK. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

AGRICULTURAL REVIEW OF TOE WEEK. Wednesday, Ncv. 2. The floor market is rather easier this week, and a lower price hes been accepted for wheat Oats are declining in value still especially in those districts where they have been exten sively grown, and are now only required for local consumption. The demand for hay has ! become better again, after a very slack week, but prices have undergone no change. The quantity of new hay coming in is limited as J yet, but several of the growers near town are prepared to commence mowing as soon as J they can trust to the weather. Accounts from South Australia are still favourable, on the whole, as to the prospects of the com in" harvest, but the fields of wheat are rather seiionsly blight, i In plaoes, and in some districts the crops have suffered from the 1 want of rain, the land not having been thoroughly saturated at any time during the winter. The aphis has attacked the wheat, but themischief done by it is slight compared with that from a mom...

MATCHES OF THE WEEK. MELBOURNE V. RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

MATCHES OF THE WEEK. MELBOURNE y. RICHMOND. " That ground's not worth half-a-dozen runs to the best bat in the colony," was the mental verdict we passed last Saturday afternoon, after walking over and inspecting the really nice turf which the Richmond Club now possesses. A. glance at the score will show how far we were correct. It was truly a pity—nay, a shame—that so good a ground should have been subjected to such a cutting-np; and we did hopethat the lengthy discussion which took place on the " to be or not to be" would have bad a different result. And fin another reason than because of the injury which must necessarily accrue to the ground, viz., that it was impossible to plsy cricket on it. And so it turned out. The contests between the picked men of these clubs is always looked forward to with much interest; for they are in reality the only club matches in which the dower of Mel bourne cricket, amateur and professional, is able to show its strength. The teams on the present oc...

A SWIMMING MATCH IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

A SWIMMING MATCH IN ENGLAND. The grand swimming match of the Brighton Swimming club occurred in July. The following are the names and colours of the contestants:— Car ill (green), Gumming (blue), Hunt (crim son and white),Lawless (brown), Hood (white), Chamberlain (yellow), Churchill (pink), But ton (black). Mr. Chrill, who took the first prize—a silrer challenge cup—last year, gained it again this year, by a distance of 100 yards, at least, over the most advanced of his com petitors. The swimmers started from a boat off Begency-square, and swam to a flag that floated midway between the third arch of the chain pier. The time that had been fixed for the starting was half-past two. Long before that time the grand esplanade was crowded from the point of starting to and orer the chain pier, giving the appearance of an almost interminable procession. Some of the swim mers did not get upon the boat in exact time, which occasioned a delay of some fifteen minutes in the starting. But at las...

RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 5 November 1864

B1CHM0ND. Although the contest for thle borough ex cited a great deal of Iperoonal interest, every body declared it to be one of the quietest elections Richmond -had ever seen. The candidates were—Mr. Francis, Commissioner of Customs; Mr. Pbtiip Johnson, a name well known in oonnexion with local municipal affairs; Mr. A. B. Wardrop, accountant; and Mr. ThomsB Parsons, barrister-at-law. There seemed to be no doubt entertained that the seat of the Minister of Customs was safe; the speculation was as to the second man, and popular opinion limited the chances to Messrs. John--on and Wardrop. From the close of the poll, at four, till between six and . seven o'clock, when Mr. Highett, the return ing officer, declared the general result of the ballot, the reapective friends of the second man waited anxiously, as in the con templation of a well-constructed drama, for the denouement.
