Retrenchment. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 21 January 1887
Retrenchment. If ever Mr. Copeland, late Minister for Lands, deserved well of his country he certainly must have earned its gratitude by the prompt measures taken by him in his department to curtail some and abolish other useless and extravagant expenditures, more partioulariy relating to the travelling expenses of officers. Mr. Copelliind commenced by knocking off £100 * year which the Surveyor General, who is stationed in Sydney, was drawing annually for forage allowance. District surveyors' equipment allowance of £230 each per annum has been abolished, as the duties of their office preclude the possibility of their spending the amount for the purpose for which the sum was granted. District and salaried surveyors' allowances are reduced by £74 each per annum, and town surveyors' allowances are reduced from £108 per annum to £52. 'Chairmen of the Local Land Boards who have feeen luxuriating on 30s a day travelling expenses must now be satisfied with 15s, and conditional purchase in...

Correspondence i TO IBS BBITOB OF THE RICHMOND BIVEB SEKALD. [The Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents.] - dm, — For some time past I have been expecting to hear of our loeal butchers redudug the prioe of beef, but up till the present nothing of the kind has been done. The present is one of the finest seasons ever expenenced on the Jtticumond for fat stook ; beef is extremely low in price, and the cry is ' What shall we do with our fat cattle f ' ' Lismore and Wyrailah have been selling for some time at 3d per lb, and Casino is now selling at 2), and in the face of all this our butohers still keep up the old rate, 3£. By all means Mt tnem have a fair profit, but at the same time the general public should share the benefits of this glorious season of plenty. I certainly fail to see why the people of Coraki should pay a penny per lb more for beef than other towns on the river. Homing our butchers will take this gentle reminder in the spirit...

Death from Eating a Toad Fish. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 28 January 1887
- Death from Eating a Toad Fish. A Chinaman's death, said to have been due to eating a poisonous fish, occurred near Newport, about 10 miles from Manly, on Sunday morning. It appears that two Mongolians, named Ah Wy and Ah Jim, have for about three months past been residing in a hut in the Ideality indicated, and that they have got a living by catching fish for their countrymen. On Saturday the two comrades stewed some fish, including It toad fish, for a meal, and they ate freely of it. An hour later they both became ill. Ah Jim, who suffered less than the other, at once set off for a European's house about a mile distant, with a view to procure 6ome medicine. He succeeded in obtaiuing medicine, and having taken some of it, carried a portion to his fellow-lodger, and administered it to him. The latter, however, soon afterwards died. Dr. Spofforth, of Sydney, viewed the body, and found nothing which would lead him to determine the cause of death.
Newcastle Customs Returns. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 28 January 1887
Newcastle Customs Upturns. We are in a position to state (says the Newcastle Morning Herald) that the value of the imports from the local Custom House for 1886 amounted to £843,474. In 1885 the imports were £930,200. ,Thc imports therefore show a decrease of .286,726 for the year 1886, as compared with the previous year. The exports for 1886 amounted to £1,398,728. In 1885 the exports were .€1,927,626. The exports for 1886 therefore show a decrease of jSfi28,898, as compared with those, for 1885. The decrease for both exports and imports looks some what startling, but it is scarcely necessary to remind those having even a smattering of statistical knowledge that ' the imposition of the ad valorem duties has rendered the public explicit and accurate in their representations of values, a fact which will account for much of tlie discrepancy. , A decrease of over half a .million sterling in exports alone shows, however, how this port has shared in the general depression from which the c...

The Cardinal intimated that the Cathedral works would probably be resumed at Easter, aud he urged an active, earnest, and united effort on the part of the Roman Cat holics of the whole, colony, express ing a hope that with the celebration of the centenary of the colony an important stage in the completion of St. Mary's wcjuld also be celebrated.
