Poetry. THE OBJECT OF A LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881
Poetry. THE OBJECT OF A LIFE. To eat, to drink, and be merry, Because to-morrow we die ; The Master's talent to bary A gift laid idly by ; To scrape with grim persistence The grains of a golden store ; To dig for a bare subsistence That keeps she wolf from the door. But whether in purple and riches We feed on the fat of the land, Or up to the middle in ditches Live hard by labour of hand, To wrestle for ease and pelf In a hunger of great and small, Where it's "every man for himself, And God, if Fie will, for us all." With greed that carries pollution Of base and pitiful strife; Can this be the true solution, The end and the aim of a life ? No j surely sparks celestial, The seraphim share with us, By instincts coarse and bestial Can never be stifled thus ! And surely within the portals That bar their brighter sphere, They yearn for fellow immortals, Tho' grovelling worm-like here The helping hand to reach us, That guides with tender care : The loving lesson to teach us Of a holier fu...
APPEAL COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 18TH. (Before Messrs. W. Lamrock, E. Powell, sen. J.'s.P.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881
APPEAL COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY IÍJTH. (Before Messrs. W. Lamrock, E. Powell, sen. J.'s.P.) Mr. C. S. Guest represented the Borough Council, and Mr. G. Guest, sen. the assessors. John Meli tilly, for property in Windsor street. The assessors had rated the said proporty as unimproved land. Appellant stated that the property was divided into three distinct portions, had been occupied for fifty years, and the rates had been raised to £27 10s., being £2 10s. over last year. The Bench struck off the £2 lQs. leaving it same as last year. j Charles Parier appealed against increased rates for his property in March-street. Fro perty had in no way been improved since last year ; had increated rates from £13 10s. to £18. Struck off. Joseph Onus sen., for property in East Market-street, occupied by T. Reay. Some rather conflicting evidence was given in this case by the occupier and assessor, resulting, however, in the rates being reduced to last year's rates, viz., £24 10s. The Court at this junct...

The Farmer. POTASH AND ASHES IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881
The Farmer. POTASH AND ASHES IN AGRICUL- TURE. Í POTASH is the most abundant constituent of the ashes of all agricultural plants, and the question of its necessity in manures and of buying potash fertilizers, is, therefore, one of importance. The native stock of potash in the soil is usually large, as is evident when the number of pounds per acre is considered, although the percentage seems small. An average percentage of about 0.03, as found in one series of analysis of eighteen soils, indi- cates the presence of 900 pounds of potash in the soil an acre within the depth of twelve inches, and, therefore, within easy reach of the plant. An average of about 0.04 per cent., found in another series of analyses of twenty-five soils, indicates 1200 pounds.to the acre. One soil of this series from America said to have produced wheat for twenty-six years, without manuring, contained 0.23 per cent, of potash, indicating nearly 7,000 pounds to the acre. Ordinary stock or dairy farming makes b...

Funniments. TALES UNFOLDED. Short Stories bv Surulrv Liars. The other day several men were standing on a street corner, talking, when a handsomely dressed lady passed. *' You may not believe nie," said a man named Spriggins, "but I have had my arm around that lady. "You are a vile slanderer, sir!" exclaimed young Paperage, and, drawing ofi, he struck Mr. Spriggins a heavy blow between the ey.-s. Both parties were instantly arrested, and when Mr. Spriggins reqtiested that the lady be summoned, a policeman caught up with her and requested ber presence in court, which had just convened in afternoon session. Paperage related the facts. " Mr. Spriggins," remaiked the judge, " did vou say you had your arm around the lady ?" "Yes, sir." " Then the gentleman did right in striking you. Ladies are not safe in Little Rock so long as such ruffians are allowed to insult them." " Judge, al'ow the lady to speak," requested Spriggins. " Certainly. Excuse me for being blunt, but-but-" " Do you mean ...
Faithful Hattie. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881
Faithful Hattie. IT was down at the docks hy the North river, New York, where the streets are dingy and narrow and wear a permanently black- ened look-where the houses are curiously jammed together, clinging to one another like irregular teeth. Seafaring men stood talking in groups at the corners of the crossings and beneath the awnings on the side walks. Every pair af trousers was more or less daubed with tar, and the raen bore on their ruddy cheeks the kisses of the suns of every climate under high heaven. Thews and sinews were to be seen there toiling doggedly and perpetually. Steam engines of various forms and uses were toiling also after their fashion-hoistiug goods, pumping water, driving poles. Horses were dragging enormous loads, calmly, as if they .were used to the engines and cared less than toothing about the noise. The workers were pushing out groins and breastworks and piles and dams, which must have astonished the river as they gradually forced it out of its old land-m...

Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881
Bichmond. MISCELLANEOUS.-Austrian Band. Thurs- day last all Richmond was on the qui vive, in anticipation of a " musical treat," but ere the day had passed news came that Windsor had suffered a disappointment from the same cause ; several however, were not acquainted with the above fact. At the appointed time I wended my way to the School of Arts, where, by the light of the moon, I saw the building, but "Vere vas de band?" Alas! " Vere vas it," Reporters, a bad lor. Such was the conclusion come to the other day by two men in our local police court. " That man is a thief!" said a wag to his friend, pointing to yours truly seated in the reporter's box. " Why so?" inquired his friend. " Why," said he ** Do you not pereeive he is taking notes?" The visit of the Duke of Manchester on Wednesday last induced several juveniles to " play the w-.g" as the saying is, anxious to get a glimpse of the " dook" or perchance, to catch the brogue of the ancient city of the north. Some years ago I had...
