WINDSOR AND RICHMOND Gazette. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1888. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
WINDSOR AND RICHMOND ©ajetts. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1888. "Let the journalist defend the doctrines of the party which he approves ; let bini criticise and condemn the party t which he docs jiot approve: reserving always his right to applaud his oppniH-nls or censure his friends, as the truth may require-and he will be Independent enough for a Free Country.-GAHFIELD.

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
CHAPTER About twelve months previous to the opening of our story, Tom Dangerfield met with a severe accident, and in conse quence gave up his attendance at the office for a time. As he was ordered awaj' from London by his doctor he thought he might go down to Devonshire, and put the winter in in that mild climate. Their old servant, Martha, had a sister living there in comfortable circumstances, and with her Tom decided to stay. It was about Christmas time when Tom Dangerfield arrived at the village of Barnton, after a cold drive of eight miles from the nearest railway station, and alighted at the door of the village inn. He would not attempt to disturb Mrs. Bassett, with whom he intended taking up his residence, at that late hour, so he might as well stop at the inn just for one night, and on to-morrow inter view his future hostess. The little village of Barnton has as yet escaped that penalty of commonplace snugness entailed by the advent of rail ways. staring red brick and other ...
Enlargement of the "Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 29 December 1888
Enlargement of the "Gazette. Next week we intend to permanently enlarge the GAZETTE. The call made upon our spacc by advertisers, together with our increasing circulation, renders it necessary that we should make a step in this direction. In future the GAZETTE will comprise 12 pages, and though under present conditions it contains much more and a better class of reading matter than any other local paper, it will be seen that the addition of four solid pages will make it as large again as any paper yet published in this district. Some time ago we promised to make this enlargement, and we are always ready to fulfil our engagements with our constituents. We desire to make 110 excuses whatever, and will not consent to live upon the demerits of others. The reasons why we claim the support of the people of this district are substantial: -We turn out the best and most read able paper in the district; the matter is not written up by amateur scribblers, but by competent men ; an advertise me...

Banking in the Olden Days. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
Banking in the Olden Days. In connection with the Richmond Branch of the Bank of New South Wales, which was opened for business in the year 1864, we recently came across an article which referred to an old balance sheet concerning it and the very few other branches then in the colony. The sheet shows the liabilities and assets of the bank in dollars, and is made up for the year ending 31st Decem ber, 1S25. It will doubtless interest some of our readers who remember the olden days of the colony. It reads as follows : LIABILITIES. Capital paid up Notes in circulation Deposits .. Dividends unclaimed Profit and loss .. $43,200 00 115,940 00 .. 297.158 yS '686 00 .. 11,195 21 '$>468,180 19 ASSETS.

SPORTING. AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
SPORTING-. AQUATICS. Peter Kemp is at present staying at his home on the Colo River, a branch of the Hawkesbury. i James Stansbury, the young Shoalhaven sculler, is also residing on the Colo, and Kemp and he are doing a little rowing on the river. Stansbury and the ex-chatupion are in excellent health, and the latter is reported to be improving in style and pace. William Beach, the Dapto oarsman, is at present in the Illawarra district, he having definitely retired from the aquatic arena. Henry E. Searle, the champion of the world, is enjoying a holiday on the Clarence River. His future movements are somewhat uncertain, but should O'Connor or Teemer fail to come to Australia it is almost cer tain that he will pay a visit to America and England. Nothing fresh with reference to the writer supply, but very little delay will occur in getting the work commenced
NEW YEAR'S EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
NEW YEAR'S EVE. New Year's Eve passed off rather quietly. We remember, in years gone by, how night and early morn were made hideous by howling bands of youths, who paraded the streets making all sorts of uncouth noises, and carrying torches and lighted tar-barrels, the glare from which illumi nated the whole of the town. These times have gone however, and, compared with them, the demonstration of Monday evening paled into insignificance. George-street presented a fairly animated appearance, and the whole of the business-places appeared to do a good trade As the night wore on, a band of music, led by Mr. W. Armour, played several selections at Thomp son's Square, and subsequently visited and played in front of a number 6f the principal business establishments. Everything went off very orderly, and after they had seen " the old year out and the new year in," after the orthodox fashion, the majority of the night-watchers wended their ways homewards, and sought relief in sleep. We are s...

NEW YEAR'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
NEW YEAR'S DAY. The ist of January, 1889, promised, from the wee sma' hours of the morning, to be one of the hottest days of the season, and the promise was f-iithfully kept. A close, muggy heat it was, too, and many a tired and jaded mortal, who arrived home in the evening, weary after the day's exertions, will long remember it. Crowds of people went out into the country, crowds went to Sydney, and crowds went everywhere, until poor old Windsor and Richmond might verily have been looked upon as deserted. Private picnics, cricket matches, &c., were arranged, and all apparently laid themselves out to secure enjoy ment in one way and another, all succeeding in accomplishing their desires. To Pitt Town the second eleven of the Windsor Albions journeyed, and played a local team. The Albions speak in the highest terms of the hospi tality of Mr. Baird, the new landlord of the Maid of Australia Hotel, and that gentleman's popu larity is now secured. Mr. Baird is a thorough going sp...
Institution of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
Institution of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind. We have received the twenty-seventh annual report of the above. Amongst the list of col lections during the past year we notice that Pitt Town contributed £4, collected by Miss Mitchell; Richmond £7 12 6, collected by Miss Ella T. Turner; and Windsor only £4 12 contributed by two local residents. We are requested to direct attention to the fact that ample accommodation exists for more iramates; also that any person knowing of deaf and dumb or blind children, for whom application has not been made for admission to the Institution, will much oblige by com municating with Mr Ellis Robinson, Hon. Sec. 243, and 245, Castlereagh-St, Sydney. It is a source of great regret to the Directors to find that many afflicted children have passed the proper age of admission simply from their not having come under tlie notice of some kind friends who would make application for them. .;

IXL Drapery Warehouse, George-street. W in(1 sor. December ji. ]-SS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, We feel we cannci allow this year to close without thanking you all publicly for the very liberal support accorded us during the last 12 months. Last January when \vc bought this business, wc had great hopes and ex pected great things. These hopes and expectations have been now more than realised, particularly when we remember the drought which has played such havoc with commercial life throughout the colony, and felt more especially by those who, like ourselves, have resolved to do r a purely cash business or none at ail. W Notwithstanding this, about s:x months ago we had to enlarge our show-room, | t 1 which is now by far the largest in town. \j We now wish you a Happy and Pros perous New Year, and at the same time ask for not only a continuance, but even a larger share of your favours, which ;it all times shall receive our most careful attention. We arc Your obedient servants, E. BOARD AND...
THE HOLIDAYS. CRICKET AT COLO. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
THE HOLIDAYS. CRICKET AT COLO Among the various outings on Boxing-day, not the least pleasant was ihat enjoyed by a number of Kawkesbury lads, under 16 years of age. who, under the captainship of the teacher of the Lower Portland Public School, journeyed to Mr Gee's paddock, Colo, to play a friendly game of cricket with a number of Colo lads of similar ages, under the captainship of Mr. Brown, teacher of Central Coio school. As more than n Lads on each side were present it was agreed to play 15 aside, Upon arriving upon the scene of *be friendly conflict, the Hawkesbury caption won the toss and sent his lads to the wicket. They, tired with their long hot journey, were disposed of for 26 ruhs, Fred Mitchell 10 runs and Ed. Law 5 (not out) chief scorers. A dinner, as acceptable as it was excellent, provided by the ladies of Colo, was then partaken of, and after a vote of thanks was awarded the ladies in question, play was resumed. The Colo Boys made 28 runs, Cyrus Hulbert 9 and J. Cod...
Richmond During the Holidays. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 5 January 1889
Richmond During the Holidays. [CONTRIBUTED.] Things in general have been rather dull of late, but one is inclined to think now that " the scene has changed." The late drought gave to the district a very dreary aspect until the month of December, when the tide turned, and the refresh ing showers gave a bright and glorious prospect for the future. To keep pace with the times the Richmond cricketers have come out of their shells. It is only two or three weeks since the Sackville Reach teamsufiered a " fine and large " defeat at the hands of the Richmond C.C. ; then on Boxing Day the Campbelltown team was defeated in &lt; n-3 innings, but the crown of glory was starting the new year. On the ist of January, 1889, the Pi st and Telegraph team from Sydney sustained such a defeat as we might read about but seldom see, when the Richmond cricketers played as they liked, and won by something drawing near 200 runs. The last night of the old year was rnther brisk in the little town ; peo...
