A concert in aid of tho Church of England Organ Fund was given in the School of Arts on Thursday evening last, and not withstanding tho inclemency of the woathor thero was a vory good attondance, and tho concert altogether may be pronouncod a suc cess, both artistically and financially.

An Ingenious Swindle. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 23 July 1886

An Ingenious Swindle. Said the New York Sun : — A new in genious New York swindle on a small scale has just come to light in the village of Irving. Mr. Gib Smith, a druggist, when looking over one of his New York papers not long ago, saw the following advertisement : — ' HOW TO DOUBLE YOUR MONEY. ' A legitimate method, requiring wit, but no risk beyond the cost of a letter and ten cents of silver. If you are not afraid of ten cents, address Box — , Bible House, N.Y. City. ' Mention the name of this paper.' Smith was'nt afraid of twelve cents. He clipped out the advertisement, pasted it on a sheet of paper, wrote the name of the paper from which it was clipped under it, wrote his own address, pasted a ten cent piece on the letter paper, by means of a two-cent stamp, and mailed the whole to the firm in New York. In exactly seventy-four hours from that time he got an answer to his letter. It came in a cheap, unsealed envelope. It was printed on a slip of the cheapest white paper, and r...

The New Archbishop of Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 23 July 1886

The New Arcliblsliop of Melbourne. It is now more than probable (tho Acie says) that tho new Roman Catholic Arch bishop of Melbourne will bo the Right Rev. Thomas J. Carr, D.D., at present Bishop of Gahvay, Kilmncdungh, and Kilfenora, in the west of Ireland. When it was determined at the Plenary Council, held at Sydney last year, that the author ities at Rome should bo recommended to appoint a coadjutor to the Most Rev. Dr. Gould, the council forwarded three names to the congregation of the Propaganda as eligible for the office. These wero the Bishop of Galway, the Very Rev. Dr. O'Brien, vice-president of the Irish Col lege at Rome (which position was formerly held by Cimliiuil Moran), and the Very Rev. T. Donaghy, Dean of St. Patrick's, Melbourne. It is usual for the Pope uuder such circumstances to appoint tho first upon the list, but in this case Dean Donaghy was appointed in deference to the wish of the lato Archbishop, the desire of the prelate who is to receive tho coadjutor b...

Non-intoxicating Beverages. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 23 July 1886

Kon-iutoxicatiug Beverages. Some very painful statements were (writes the St. James Gazette) made in the House of Commons recently respect ing what are termed ' non-intoxicating beverages.' The subject was brought under notice by Mr. B. Fletcher, who somewhat imprudently asked the Chan cellor of the Exchequer if his attention had been called to the fact that the Excise officers had interfered with and stopped the sale of ' herb beer,' and if he would state why there had been any interferance with the manufacture and sale of this non-intoxicating beverage. Sir William Harcourt explained that some of these so called ' non-intoxicating beverages ' are found, on being tested, to be considerably stronger than London porter. It has, he alleges, also been found that temperence drinks are popular in proportion to the number of degrees of proof spirit they contain. These frightful revelations will fall like a bombshell in temperance circles. Perhaps it will be even discovered that non-intoxi...

Suicide of the King of Bavaria. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 30 July 1886

Suicide of the Ming of Bavaria. The details of the suicide of the King of Bavaria are very distressing. After his deposition from the throne, on the ground of insanity, aud the appoint ment of l'rince Luitpold as Regent, the fallen King was sent to Berg Castle, situated 011 Lake Starnberg, a short rail way journey from Munich, accompanied by Dr. Gudden as his special medical attendant., All day long the King seemed very quiet, and at six o'clock in the evening went for a walk with his physician, previously ordering supper for 8 o'clock. Shortly afterwards the servants following were dismissed at the king's request, the doctor assent ing.

Stoned to Death in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 30 July 1886

Stoned to Death in Ireland. A shocking murder was committed on Thursday, June 3, at a place called Coolgorman, about five miles from Newcastle West, county Limerick, a young man named Michael Larlcin being beaten to death by two brothers named O'Donnell, with whom he had had a dispute at a public-house. The murder has 110 connection with agrarian disputes, and was the result of a long standing feud. They met accidentally in a public-house, and the old dispute was revived and culminated in blows. The police quelled the disturbance ; but, owing to the threats uttered by the O'Donnels, it was deemed advisable for the safety of Larkiu that he should be accompanied out of the town by an escort of police. These precautions were taken in the evening when Larkin was proceeding home, but unhappily the ?police did not remain long enough in his company to prevent murder. The O'Donnells appeared to have dogged Lark in's steps, and after the police had left him they drove quickly up to his cart,...

The Melbourne Divorce Court. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 30 July 1886

The Melbourne ftirorce Court. A Melbourne Divorce-Court decision strikingly shows what may happen in ?Victoria to an unprotected male. Twenty eight years ago Mike O'Connor, then aged 23, took to himself a wife of 15, and lived with her for three months, at the end of which time he discovered she had faults. The principal ground of complaint was that her temper was worse than' that of a cock-alligator, and the remarks which she made to her husband when any household difficulties arose, were composed mainly of flying furniture, so that Michael constantly found himself called upon to camp out 011 the shortest notice. Three months of married life were followed by six of separation, and then the unhappy O'Connor made a second attempt at domestic happiness. What happened on this occasion is not accurately stated, but apparently his home was stirred by a perpetual struggle between the Powers of Evil and what the poetic native of Asia terms the Spirit of Connubial Joy, with the invariable r...

The Dog and the Shilling. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 30 July 1886

The Dog and the' fehilliiiff The following anecdote of a dog, given in the Sportsman's Annual, is one of the most curious we have seen of its kind : — A gentleman of Suffolk, being on an excursion with a friend and having a Newfoundland dog of the party, he soon became the subject of conversation; when the master, after a warm eulogium upon his perfections, assured his com panion that he would, upon receiving the order, return and fetch any article he should leave behind, from any distance. To confirm this assertion, a marked shilling was put under a large square stone by the side of the road — being first shown to the dog. The gentleman then rode for three miles, when the dog re ceived his signal from the roaster to return for the shilling he had seen put under the stone. The dog turned back, the gentle man rode on and reached home ; but, to their surprise and disappointment, the hitherto faithful messenger did not return during the day. It afterwards appeared that he had gone to t...

The Home Rule Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 30 July 1886

. The lloine ltule Bill. , The division on tho second reading of .the Homo Utile Bill was one of the most remarkablo, as it is certainly one of the most important, that ever took place in ,r,tho: 'House of Commons. Not a single seat was vacant, and, including the Speaker,. 657: members voted. Five members were absent through illness, and : eight abstained from voting. The Con -? servatives cast a solid vote of 250, rein forced by 93 Liberals, thus giving an absolute majority of the House of 30 against the Government. England and ''W ales taken by themselves, gave an adverse majority of 102. Twenty-three Scotch Liberals, loft Mr. Gladstone,- but there remained a balanco of fivo Scotch votes in his favour. The division lists give testimony to tho complete disruption' of tho Liberal party. The largeness of the majority against tho second reading of the bill caused general surprise, for calculations varied between 10 and 20. No guess ventured to put it so high as 30. The scene at the di...

An Irrigation Experiment. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 30 July 1886

An Irrigation Experiment. The first irrigation plant established on theWerribee Plains was started on Wed nesday (says the Melbourne Argus) at the farm of Mr John Beamish, about a mile and n-hall from the Wyndham railway station. The plains of this dis trict are very suitable for irrigation, but Tip to the present, liay-growing has been carried on under rather dispiriting con ditions, severe and continued droughts being a check to farming enterprise. The light red soil of the district re puires an exceptional amount of mois ture to thoroughly develop its qualities, and at the present tvnie the ground is as dry and destitute of natural herbage as in midsummer. Mr. Beamish is now endeavouriirg to counteract these faults by pumping water from the Werribee. River on to his land. Mr. Beamish's plaut is the first of its kind worked in the colony. The engine is one of Mar shall's eight horse power, and the pump is attached to the boiler, and is of double action — lift and force. From the r...

The first, of theso is devoted to the Royal Herds at 'Windsor.
