Some of My Early Adventures. BY AN OLD SPORTSMAN. BRUTE LIFE IN THE ALPINE REGIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Some of My Early Adventures. BY AN OLD SPORTSMAN. I BRUTE LIFE IN THE ALPINE REGIONS. - A LETTER from tho French correspondent of liana, ana Water, published in that journal for Nov. 13,1809, states that a lynx hos boon spreading torrar through tho Swiss Mountains in tho neighbourhood of Flurres, that in two nights it had killed no less than thirty sheep, that the flocks lind to be protected at night by armed men, and that a prico had been sot on tho hoad of tho destructivo animal. Having had somo ex- perience in Alpino hunting, and having in your issuo of the 22nd ult., given a chapter of my adventures there, it strikes me that a fow particulars of the beasts and birds of prey that frequent that region will bo interesting to your readers. The following particulars aro partly«gathorcd from my own experience, and partly from information ac- quired in the course of several hunting expeditions in tho Alpine rogions : In tho Oberland, somo thousands of foot higher than the sceno of my a...

General Turf Items. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

General Turf Items. I BY PEGASUS. THE nearest ot co ming events is üatlrurst, and I have now before me the full list of entries, with tho weights for the Cap and three other handicaps. I think the ontrios may ho considered satisfactory, though one would have expected more than, seven for tho Maiden Plate ; hut as it is there are quite enough to make good sport. Mr. "West has been more than usually successful, and that is saying a great deal, in adjusting his weights ; for, in spite of committees, and triumvirates, and prejudices, the fact is becoming more patent every day, that as I have alwaya said, his handicaps . are a long way the best .we see. This timo there has not been a single expression of dissent from the handicapper's views, although it's a fair thing to say that there is a growler or two among the owners. I don't know whether I can Bucoeed in picking a winner or two, but I will try, as I hear well of, the condition of the nags, and the course is splendid. The Ida colt s...

The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

The Turf. ] TUB Autumn Meetings are now pretty well before the public ; and a very good appearance they present, as far as foreshadowing a great finish to the season ; and the different owners of horses who are accus- tomed to make the campaign, which laatB from February till June, have plenty before them. Tho different programmes look well, and will tum out .well; as there are a good many horses in work, and i going to he, and good entries may be expected every whore. From Bathurst to Hartley, and then five days to get to Orange, and four days more to Berrima, fiUs up three weeku rather too weU, the time being too short between Orange and Berrima to give horses a chanco at the latter place ; and then wo come into the Metropohtan. district to Homebush and Randwick, with a good useful spell between the former and Berrima. Burrangong has unfortunately fixed its _. two days at such an awkward time as to give the Bathurst and Cowra sportsmen, who aro all good ! men and true, no chance o...

CHAPTER XXL-JUDITH. "William had not long concluded his story, when Mark was informed hy tho barman that a lady desired to speak to him. " That will bo Miss Judith," cried Mr. Nichols, smiling-"tho witness for tho defence, Mr. Felton. You have made a conquest." Mark laughed, blushing, nevertheless, as ho hurried out to reçoive his visitor. It was MÍBS Judith Green, sure enough, looking very pretty in her confusion and modest agitation. Mark spoke to horvory kindly, thanking her heartily for the evidonco sho had volun- teered in his favour. "Don't say so," she cried in an agitated voico ; "pray don't say so. It was Barty's fault that you wore brought up. Oh, sir, wo aro so sorry, and mother has told mo to ask your forgiveness." As sho spoke thus, Judith clasped her hands im- ploringly, and unable to check her tears, drooped her head and wept bitterly. Mark hastonod to assuro her that ho had nothing to forgive j and that although his unlucky employment by her brother had got him into ...

The Drama. HERR BANDMANN'S " OTHELLO." [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

The Drama. HERR BANDMAÎTN' S " OTHELLO." Ix order to constitute a work of art every point must be executed with tho greatost nicety "and finish, I so that perfect harmony pervade the whole. One careless shade heedlessly thrown in will nullify the effects of au age of study and labour. Nothing can be more true with regard to dramatic representations. Wo may admiro tho acting of some particular genius ; but how often is tho play marred by tho mutilation of tho original work, iroin tho impossibility of pro- curing a proper representation ? How often-nay, almost constantly-are tho poor drudges of the stago compelled to appear in parts for which thoy aro not only disqualified, but for which they know them- selves to bo utterly unfitted ? How frequently aro stage appointments quito at variance with the period | represented-costumes totally opposed to tho charac- j tors that wear them.

THE CRICKET OE THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

THE CRICKET OE THE COLONY. AB an old, used-up cricketer, 1 look witn great interest it the doings in the field of our young men, ind watch from year to year for improvement among the olayers. Our young mon aro as fine-grown now as they were ten or fifteen years ago; and to look at those of the present time ought to make quite as Mod cricketers as those of tho past ; hut, for some reason or other that I cannot explain, they do not. Intimes past, when a young player became a good ulaver he continued in the right track, and wont on from season to season, becoming every year a better -layer* DUt, of late years, cricket affairs seem to {¡ow in quite a different channel; and directly a voimgman distinguishes himself in a match he is made a sort of idol of for tho rest of that season, and it is a great chanco if he is ever heard of in the front , ' ranks after the end of it.

Now-a-days strong able bodied men are walking our streets, complaining that thoy have no work. Nevertheless, some must be doing tolerably well, as wo had no less than fivo wed- dings last weok, all the Benedict's belonging to the bone and sinew of the country. This, according to Mr. Ô. H. Cox's opinion, delivered in a lecture some time back, " is tho most approved way of peopling Mudgee and the district." Our Municipal elections are now over ; nothing new in the Cudgegong Council, the retiring councillors being re-elected, and Mr. John Newman elected to the chair. The town Council, however, has now three new alder- men, viz. :-Messrs. G. D. Lane, S. C...

MELBOURNE.   Thursday afternoon. Mr. Bates resumed the debate on the address last night. After discussion, no hostile amendment being proposed, Mr. Macartney moved an adjournment which was carried, and Mr. G. P. Smith is ordered to appear in his place to-night, to answer Mr. Macart- ney's charge against him. Ah Lic, a Chinese lunatic in the Yarra Bend Asylum, has stabbed a warder named Christopher Banks. The wound is serious, but not mortal. O'Connor, a solicitor, has been fined £5, or the alternative of fourteen days' imprisonment, for stealing plants from Fitzroy Gardens. The Rev. Mr. Graham, of Sydney, and several missionaries from the South Sea Islands, delivered   eloquent appeals last night at the annual meeting of the London Missionary Society. Business continues to be quiet since the arrival of the mail. Advices strongly favour an advance in kerosene, which is consequently firmly held. The hop crop in England is short of the consumption.
