ITEMS OP INTEREST. [ORioiNjfa. and Selected.] The first actual boring operations in connection with the artesian bore at Nevertire were commenced on Friday, and quite a large gathering collected from all parts of the district to witness the cutting out of the first core. Mrs. Campbell, wife of Mr. Dugald CampbeU, one of the oldest residents in town, broke a bottle of champagne on the auger rod, and amidst cheers christened it 'The Never tire Anniversary Bore,' while Mrs. Kelly decorated the rod with blue ribbon. The contractors, the Peterolia Boring Company, have a splendid plant on the ground, and a large staff, and it is confi dently expected that the bore will be completed in a very short time. The Howard Smith liner, the Peregrine, has again lowered the record from Sydney to Mel bourne, covering the distance from heads to heads in 31} hours, beating her last record by 15 minutes. With regard to the representations made by the New South Wales Government that a new bridge over the...
MARIGOLD. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
MAJKIGOLD. CHAPTER III. Hours before that, Marigold has risen and looked through her casement afc the dewy dawn. ' How soundly papa sleeps in his new quarters,' Bhe murmurs. ' His rheumatism must be better, thouirh laBfc nitrlih it r-r--vpnfcpfl his p.litnl-iinir fn hin -Own room, and compelled him to occupy mine.' Despite this reflection, a strange sadness op presses her, and she .shudders as she chances to glance at the great willow waving its spectral arms at tho foot o£ the garden, and involuntarily she xepeats some words she has read : Know ye the willow-tree. Whose gray leaves quiver, Whispering gloomily To yon pule river ? Lady, at eventide, Wander not near it; '* They say its branches hide A snd, lost spirit. ' Is ifc the spirit of my dead happiness ?' she asks terself, continuing, in the next minute, with a .smile : ' Nay, my happiness has but begun. I am io meet Mr. Artnand this morning, and what rap ture can equal that ?' Then, with her fair face bathed with rosy blushes,...

DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. NEWCASTLE. Wednesday, 1.35 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. [Feom ottb Correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Wednesday, 1.35 p.m. The efforts made by the Stockton Coal Company to resume work at their mine appear likely to be successful. All arrangements for the engagement of free labour have been perfected in Sydney, with the result that some thirty-five miners arrived here by the steamer Namoi at five o'clock this morning. The Namoi stemed riong side the barque Clifton and placed the new hardB on board. During the day the vessel will be removed to the buoy facing the Stockton Coal Company's wharf. The free labourers together with the police will be quartered on board the vessel so as to avoid the necessity for providing accommodation for them in the township, where they would be likely to come into collision with the Ur5on men. ? At seven o'clock this morning nearly the whole of the available police in the district, including constables from Hinton, Maitland, Largs, and Mor 1 3th, who had arrived last night, mustered at the police...
THE CHURCH CONGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
THE CHTTECH CONGBESS. A Ch^bch Congbess is not a Synod or similar legislative body. It is not even a deliberative assembly in the customary sense It doeB not meet for action, or even very consciously to lay the basis ior action. Pre-eminently it is a conference of churchmen clerical and lay for talk, for free exchange of opinion, for comparison of methods, for relation of experiences, for uttering words of encouragement, and for statement of aims. And one aspect of its valne consists in the sense of every reader and speaker that he is not committed by any utterance of opinion to definite or immediate action. 'A free festival of thought and Bpeecb, a festival which looks tjfore and after' is what a Church Congress is, to adopt the words of the Archbishop of Canter bury in the CongresB sermon at Eocheater last year. A congress such as that closed last week at Hobart is a thinking cloud by a number of churchmen upon the multitude of subjects which are inclrded in the work sii functions...
A Prospecting Party's Trip. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
A Prospecting Party's Trip.. [By H. O'S White.! Having promised to write you an account o£ a trip made under my guidance of a party for pro specting purposes to the tableland— that is, tho high plateau from which the rivers Hunter, Pater son, Allyn, Williams, Chichester, Little, Gloucester, Barrington, and Manning take their sonroe, I now proceed to do so. We left Maitland — eight of us in all — early on a Saturday morning. Our start was propitious : the weather was fine, and gaily along our party pushed; some walking, others riding, just as it pleased them. Our way was to Gresford, and thence up the Allyn. We did 30 miles the first day, and en camped for the night at the farm of Messrs. J. and H. Smith, and were make right welcome to our camp in their paddock. Next morning being Sunday we made but a short journey of 13 miles to Eccles ton, and crossed the river Allyn ten timeB in that distance, showing how tortuous it is. Our camp for this night was upon the Northern boundary of th...
A Batch of Publications. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
A Batch of Publications. From Messrs. EdwaTds, Dunlop, and Co., . of Sydney, we have a batch of publications. ' The History of the Old Testament Scriptures from the A^xandrian T—j^a'.ioa to tLe later re vision Oxford and Cambridge,' is a pamphlet by R. Butters, of Sydney. The work before us is Part II., and a third part is promised, to contain a critical examination of .the hiBtory of the New Testament Canon. We ara unable, from unfamili arity -with the subject, to judge of the value of Mr. Butters's work, but he is evidently very diligent and paiDstifeiDg, and has collected a mass of dpfa, — a labour involving extensive research and patient reading. At the conclusion of the hiBtory, some concise particulars are supplied of the voiiors English translations of the Bible. 'The Hebrews, their Liter^tj'-e and Re'igion, B.C., with an introduction to the New Testament Books,' is by the same author, and the character of the pamph'et is indicated by the title. This aiso is part of a series ...
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Original and Selected.! If a little newsboy be sentenced to six hours' imprisonment for stealing a penny paper how much should the unfaithful cashier or agent get who embezzles or steals thousands cf pounds i' We are impelled to aBk this sum in proportion by noticing bhat a boy named O'Grady was ordered to remain in gaol for the hours mentioned for having in Sydney the other day committed the heinous crime set out. Alfred Rogers, ex-storeman of the Melbourne Storage Company, was sent to gaol yesterday for larceny of three water meters. His arrest was owing to his own confession. His excuse waa ' the Devil tempted him.' Previously it has been generally understood that his Satanic Majesty and meters of all kinds were wont to go hand in hand, aB it were. That one did a good deal to help the other, in fact. A sign of the timeB was afforded at the Parra matta Borough Cauncil meeting the other evening. There was six tenderers for the supply of horses, carte1, and drive...

LATEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. [Feom the Pekss Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Wednesday afternoon. The Colonial Treasurer will make his budget speech to-morrow night. It will probably be a short deliverrnce, and is anticip Jxd to prove satis factory to the country. In the House consideiable interest is being evinced respecting the debate on Mr. Hindle's motion to night. The Ministerial organ states there is some talk o£ certain member3 seizing the opportunity for making a kind of general washing day in the House, but there is a very strcng feeling against anything of the sort being done. It is commonly repoitsd a number o2 private members intend to take steps in the matter at the moment any washing of d'-'fcy ?inen is attempted, when the galleries will probably be cleared, but so long es the debate is kept within bounds no action will be taken. . An application was made to Mr. Justice Stephen in Chambers this morning for the appointment of a receiver in place of Mr. Cyril Haviland, who ...
