EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The War in Italy. (From the Home News, June 18th.) BATTLE OF MONTEBELLO. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 September 1859
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. - ! The War in Italy. (From the Home News, June 18th.) BATTLE OF MONTEBELLO. It was not till the 20th of May that the two opposing armies showed signs of being, about lo commit themselves to some decisive conflict. From the then relative po- siton of the two sides, described above, it will not be regarded as unnatural that the .Austrians should become suspicious of the designs of the allied French Sardinian force upon the left flank of their army. The point upon which the advance of the French and Sardinians was most dreaded were Paviaand Piacenza. Gene- ral Stadion, therefore, who was posted either in or near th« latter place, resolved to discover whether it was^threatened by - any considerable force of allies; and for the purpose he set out, on May 20th, with a reconnoitering force of 25000 men to ad- vance from Stradella, on the road to Vo ghera, as far as Casteggio aud Montebello. How promptly his curiosity was satisfied will be seen from what follows. For...

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 September 1859
COLONIAL 1ÜTELLÍGE&ICE. MR. JUSTICE THERRY.- The unfounded report of the wreck of the Duncan Dunbar will be recollected by our readers; and it will be pleasing intelligence to many who at first felt some alarm when that report was circulated, that a letter has been receeived by a gentleman in East Maitland from Mr. Justice Therry, who sailed by that ship, stating that he had arrived in England in good health, on the 18th June Maitland Mercury. Mrs. Smith, the poor young woman whose dress caught fire while she was sit- ting on her husband s knee, in their house in Sydney, is since dead. The husband appears to have been utterly incompetent to render her any assistance, and the jury severely censured him. The Rev. Dr. Lang has published a letter, in which he strongly advocates the extension of Mr. Gisborne's proposed tele- graphic line overland from the north coast to Fort Bourke, as a central position. Captain White, of the Lady Grey, has been fined ¿6100 by the Newcastle Benc...

Sir Daniel Cooper was elected Speaker of the Legislative Assembly without oppo- sition. Four members were absent,among them Mr. Hoskins, the writ-strange to say-having not yet buen returned.

MUNICIPALITY OF GRAFTON.-The poll which was demanded on the'25th ultimo, took place in the Court-house on Thurs- day last.

RICHMOND RIVER. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] Casino, August 27. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 September 1859
RICHMOND RIVER. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] Casino, August 27. THE township has been pretty lively the last week, caused by the opening for sale of the farms about here. They were all sold, with fair com- petition, avernging about 38s. to 40s. per acre. Tliere were also a number of town lots sold, on thc south side, some of them bringing as much as £22 per acre. It will be some time before you hear any more complaints of the want of land. &nbsp; There were a great numbor of lots offered for sale atvLismore, for which no bidders could be &nbsp; found. The same fate applies,to Ballina. We are all looking forward with much plea- sure to the races. I suppose Grafton will walk off with the lion's share of the prizes this season. It is but fair, as it was quite the reverse last year. &nbsp; It is a great pity the Grafton people are compelled to buy our own horses up to come &nbsp; herc and beat us. The weather-a noble subject, all correspon- dents write of it-h...

Pernicious Literature. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889
Pernicious Literature. PRESIDING over the twenty-second annual meeting of the Metropolitan Tabernacle Colportage Associa- tion, the Rev. C. H. Spurgeon dwelt upon the statement in the report that the vendors of pernicious literature had been bold and aggressive of late, especially in the dissemination of foreign novels, and pointed out that the chief aim of that organisation was to counteract the evil by the circulation of books of a religious and healthy tone among all classes. Bad literature must be met. It could only be met by the production of good literature, and in certain directions good literature would never go unless it was carried. They had to create the demand as well as to supply it ; and in country districts where the population was too sparse to support a bookseller, good writing would never be read except it was carried there by means of colporteurs. He had no personal know- ledge of the fact, but he was constantly being informed that English literature, in the shape...
Armidale. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889
Armidale. TUESDAY. I RAILWAY TO THE COAST.-Mr. Surveyor Simp- son has made a trial survey from Guyra to the Guy Fawkes, and says he encountered no obstacle requiring great engineering difficulties to surmount. Mr. W. Stevenson, of Guyra, accompanied the surveyor to Guy Fawkes, and it is anticipated that between this point and tie coast the country is not exceedingly rough. It contains capital tracts of agricultural land with abundance of good timber, as evidenced by the quantities that have been sent from thence to Armidale and Grafton. SOCIAL.-Rinking is all the rage, and nearly every person who is able bas mounted the rollers. Some races have taken immensely, and no amuse- ment is so liberally patronised. A hospital ball is on the tapis, and some tennis matches are being arranged. Armidale is also to have a Buffalo Lodge ere long. MINING.-The Eleanora Mine has been success- fully floated, and Mr. George Smith, of Baker's Creek, appointed manager. Baker's Creek crushed 474 ounces f...

FBIDA¥'§ sinnt«. IN the Assembly to-night, Mr. SEE asked the cost of railways and extent of miles in the colony. Mr. M'MILLAN replied that the information was being prepared np to the latest date, and the return would be laid on the table of the House. Mr. M'MILIiAN, in reply to Mr. See, said the road from Graf con to Glen Innes was opened in 1866, but was not yet completed, as portions required forming. The cost of the road to date was £217,700 5s 4d. The annual vote for main- tenance, including the municipal limits, iras £7,250. On the road from Lawrence to Tenter- field the expenditure to date was £120,461 8s 3d, and annual vote £5700. The Government intend to continue the annual vote until the Railway question is settled, when the matter vrlll be re- considered. Mr. M'MILLAN, in reply to Mr. FLETCHER, stated tnat 40 locomotive boilers bad been ordered from England at a cost of £33,000, and that no tenders were invited in the colony. In answer to Mr. EWING, the MINISTER FOR MINES...
Drunkenness. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889
Drunkenness. WE tate the following from an exchange :-" Our own age shows mercy to drunkenness. In classic Greece drunkards were subject to the severest penalties. In Athens, Solon purchased them with death ; Lycurgus in Sparta, destroyed vineyards in his territory, and took every precaution to prevent the transmission of a habit of inebriety from father to child. In Locris, wine was permitted only to invalids ; and at Mitylene, Fittacus doubled the punishment of any crime if it had been committed under the influence of wine. In Republican Rome, the citizens, both men and women, were forbidden to partake of wine before they had attained the age of thirty. In mediaeval times, the same severity obtained, and Francis I., though himself no model king, published in 1536, an edict to the effect that anyone found drunk should be imprisoned with a bread and water diet for the first offence ; beaten with rods for the second, for the third publicly whipped, and if he then proved incorrigible,...
Press Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889
Press Opinions. THE Herald remarks that the course which the PBEMIEB has marked out makes " nar between the two Houses inevitable," whatever view the Council might have taken, if the Bill had been sent np again unaccompanied by threats or intimida- tion. It will be obliged now, in defence of its own dignity, to maintain the position which it has taken up. Mr. ABBOTT denounced the Council as cowardly and recreant because, after accepting the principle of Payment of Members, it inserted a provision in the Bill which would prevent members of the existing Assembly obtaining remuneration for their services. What would he say of the same House if, under threat of extinction, it were to meekly swallow the Bill which the Assembly is trying to ' * cram down its throat ?" If the quarrel between the two Houses is prolonged and bitter, the blame will rest upon the shoulders of those who have begun the " war " with such inconsiderate violence. The Telegraph, after blaming the PBEMIEB for his unq...
The Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889
The Land Bili. I THE consideration of the Crown Landa Bill in Committee in the Assembly, clause 44 was put, which pro Tides that no improvements shall be made on Crown lands without the permission of the Land Board, and any made without permission are to be wholly the property of the Crown. No improvements are to bar conditional purchase or lease, but the purchaser or lessee shall pay for the improvements. When the improvements belong to the Crown, their value is to be appraised by the Land Board. Improvements may include fencing, but shall be of a permanent, fixed, and substantial character, and necessary for the profitable occu- pation of the land ; but before payment the owner, with the permission of the Board, may remove them. The nature of improvements on land sold at auction is to be added to the upset price, and when not the property of the Crown, shall be refunded to the owner. The first sentence of the clause, relating to improvements being the pro- perty of the Crown, was ...
Reminiscences of an Immigrant's Voyage to N.S.W. in '82 [WRITTEN FOR THE "EXAMINER."] [CONCLUDED]. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

They hauled taut, and then hauled slack, for the hook drew, the shark sheered off, and left the "haulers" sprawling on the deck. A few days after this we saw a school of fourteen whales, the only ones we saw during the voyage. We also sighted at the reputed distance of about seven miles the memorable island of Tristan D'Acunha ; but no view worth speaking of, it appeared only like a misty view of bare rocks aa we saw it. An eating match will be held to-morrow in the 'tween decks, at which all are invited to attend. Admission, one penny. i This ad. was the result of a challenge to eat more at one sitting than anybody in the forrard cabin, issued by a young fellow named Jones.

The Tableland and its Slopes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889
The Tableland and its Slopes, j " H. G." writing to the Daily Telegraph says : I had opportunity of conversing with several of the leading residents of Glen Innes and I found the existence of a profound and ardent belief in the great resources of the district and New England as a whole, in respect of ita agriculture, mineral and pastoral capabilities. The place possesses and pro- duces gold, silver, copper, tin, bismuth, and antimony, and not far off, in two or three direc- tions, also precious gems. Conjoined with this confidence was a feeling of depression caused, as I was assured, by the want of an outlet. People, as I was told, can't grow wheat here over what is wanted for home consumption, as they can't afford to send it to Sydney. The whole thought and feel- ing of the town is centered on the scheme of get- ting connected, by railway, with Grafton and thence with the sea. The present railway is useless, as it does not pay to send by it. Why this should be so when no such feeli...
