Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
A NHW INDUSTRY-Captain Armstrong showed the Echo some samples of a new industry which he has lately started, and which seems likely to prove very successful. The industry consists in the preparation of schnapper, whiting, mullet, and other Australian fish in the shape of paste, similar to the anchovy and bloater paste of English make with which we are familiar. The preparations of Captain Armstrong are very nicely put np, and of excellent flavour, and should prove a welcome addition to the breakfast table. The caviare will be found particularly toothsome. A "VITALISING ELIXIE.-Nervous, weakly persons frequently dose themselves for imaginary diseases, when all they require is wholesome invigoration. Thousands have recovered robust health by substi stituting for unwholesome drugs a pure and agree- able vitalising elixir which solaces the nerves, overcomes digestive and other functional weakness or disorders, and is prescribed by four thousand intelligent physicians. We allude to Wolfe...
Trail of the Octopus. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
Trail of the Octopus. THUS the Pastoralid, in its last issue, condemns the centralisation system under which the country is suffering. Where is freedom of trade in New South Wales, as compared with what is shown aa regards Queensland. " No better opportunity could be afforded of the evils of centralisation than that offered by the overhauling of the public service which takes place when the estimates are being passed. Throughout the course of debate the errors and j abuses of our cumbersome Civil Service crop up so I continuously that Ministers are fairly put to their wit's end to explain them away. Turn which way we will, we see around us the trail of the octopus I that centres in Sydney, where the bloated body ! swells and grows fatter on what it draws through its far-reaching suckers. So long as the present system endures, so long shall we be a people of one city, and a scanty and scattered population. Truly we shall have, as the Minister for Public Works told ns, a General Post ...

FRANCE, ENGLAND AND MALTHUSIANISM.-In a recent lecture, Mr. Henry Varley stated that at the commencement of the present century the popula- tion of England was in round numbers 10,000,000, whilst that of France was 35,000,000. That at the present time the population of France is computed at 36,750,000, whilst that of the United Kingdom is 37,000,000. That France, through the practical endorsure of the Malthusian delusion and her shameful immorality, stands before the world to-day as the most wholesale destroyer of human life, in its incipient stage, of any civilised nation on the earth. If troubled with hacking cough, tightness of breathing, icc, get a bottle of "Bronchial Tonic Mixture" from Dr, Forbes, Prince-street, Grafton. Will give immediate relief. Try it.-ADV. A. J.

San Francisco Mail Service. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
San Francisco Mail Service. SPEAKING in the Legislative Assembly in favor of subsidising the San Francisco mail service, Mr. See said the mail steamers only formed a mere item of the trade between San Francisco and Australia. Instead of the service costing £7900, it actually prodnced money through Sydney being the Australian terminus. Thepresent Government of the United States wa3 more favourable to sub- sidising steamers than any Government had been previously. This he had ascertained in conversa- tion with Americans and by inquiry. He advocated the continuance of the service entirely in Austra- lian interests. If they were to have a mail service with America at all, it would be more advantage- ous to have it through San Francisco than Van- couver Island. Passengers and cargo were impor- tant factors in the service, but if the service went to Vancouver Island, passengers would never take the American route. He strongly favoured the continuance of the service, as it meant increased ...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
I Letters to the Editor. THE Editor does not hold himself responsible tor opinions expressed by correspondents. SIB.-" JuBtitia " acenses me of making gross misstatements, which I mnst give a most emphatic denial. Now, " Justitia," read this. He says the information " I so willingly gave rc the signatures is perfectly correct, that the petition wa3 signed by residents of Smith's, Stockyard and Whiteman creeks, and, as I said before, by nearly all the heads pf families on Copmanhurst ivith the czccj>iio7i of about fire. The italicized words I never said, on the contrary, I stated they were basely incorrect. I feel sorry that "Justitia's" intellect should be deranged totheextentofnotknowingblackfrom white. I will say no more about the petitions of seven years ago, as I feel confident his brain power is incapable to resist the strain of recollection. With regard to Eaton Creek, Mr. Editor, I now endorse my asser- tion with the fact that I have seen the existing bridge covered by bac...
Macleay River. SEPTEMBER 10TH. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
Macleay River. SEPTEMBER 10TH. ROADS.-À large number of contracts on roads are now submitted for tender, which, in addition to effecting much-needed repairs, will give employ- ment to a number of people. Several contracts are on the Grafton road. LAEEIKINISM.- The larrikin element is very strong in Kempsey just now. At a late meeting of the Council it was resolved to draw the attention of the police to the nuisance. A skeleton army has been organised, and the conduct of certain of its members is something abominable. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.-At a late meeting of the Agricultural Society it was decided to hold the next annual exhibition on the three last days of February. Sports are to be held in connection with the Show, and the novelty of a tennis match is to be introduced. In respect to a proposal from the Gosford Society to urge on the Government to declare flying foxes noxious animals, Mr. Dangar, M.P., was requested to assist to have such sugges- tion carried out.
Tatham. SEPTEMBER 10. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
Tatham. I SEPTEMBER 10. I THE Farmers Union has now been rn existence fonr years, and has done a good deal of useful work. The annual meeting was held on Friday last, and was well attended. . The Treasurer's statement showed that they had a balance to their credit of £3. Office-bearers for the ensuing year were elected. About 60 sat down to the annual dinner in the evening. There was a ball at night, and dancing was kept np until near daylight. A gang of cane-cutters from Broadwater will commence cutting here this week. Some of the plant cane which was blown down and frosted will be cut next month. The cane crops on this Arm do not appear to be turning out well this season. Farming operations are in a very backward state. The continual wet weather prevented anything being done on the ground during July and the greater part of August. Very few of the farmers have planted any corn yet. The potato crop has only been in the ground about a fortnight.

Mr., MsLeod, from Campbelltown, succeeds Mr. Sampson. J THE RAILWAYS.-In common with other North- ern districts, the railway projects are creating much interest in Tenterfield. A telegram in Saturday's Star states that it is rumoured that the railway will probably be extended from Tenterfield in the direction of Byron Bay. The same paper com- menting on this writes: "The intelligence an- nouncing a rumour that the railway will probably be extended from Tenterfield to Byr...
THURSDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
THE Legislative Council last night dealt with the Land Bill, which was passed through its final stages, and returned to the Assembly. The Council discussed the Divorce Extension Bill without coming to any conclusion. Bead and passed the Treasury Bills, the Deficiency Bill, Water Supply Bill, and Women's College Endow- ment Bill. In the Assembly, Mr. BRUCE SMITH, in reply to Mr. Nicoll, said that the cost of the Lismore Water Works np to the present time was £7072 5s 6d.-The same Minister replied that he knew a silt punt was urgently needed at the Tweed River. He said one wonld be sent as soon as possible. The Governor's assent to certain Bills were announced. The Railway Policy. Mr. RYRIE then moved the adjournment of the House to draw attention to the unsatisfactory nature of tüe Hallway policy of the Government, more particularly in regard to the line Tarrago to Braidwood. Mr. ROBERTS called attention to the desir- ability of constructing a North Coast line. Mr. INGLIS said Invere...

Harwood Island. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
Harwood Island. THURSDAY. THE CONCERT.-On Wednesday evening a concert tinder the supervision of the Conqueror Lodge, was held in the Assembly Booms. The popularity of this concert was exhibited hythe attendance, which was very fair. A lengthy .programme consisting of twenty-five items was gone through. The first was ah overture on the piano by Miss Webb, fol- lowed by the song " Would I were a bird" by Miss Law. Then came the duet " The old folks are gone" by Messrs. Knight and Ensby, and was loudly applauded. Thc next song was rendered by Mr. Muir, "The white squall," for which he received an encore. The recitation "Boomed to die" by Mr. Garbutt, was well rendered ; and then came Mr. Kelleher's " Blue eyed Nellie." Little Miss Davies gave "The flower girl" very nicely. Hr. Bushnell next appeared in his popular Irish comic, and fairly brought , the house, to which he responded with an amusing solo. Then came Miss Payne with the solo " I'm waiting for thee." Mr. Knight waa next to ap...
Lower Clarence. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
ft - r Lower Clarence. THUBBDAY. Valedictory.-Thia week we have said good-bye to two well-known townspeople-Dr. Hood and Mr. C. M'Farlane-both of whom will be missed by a great number of people. The former was presented with a handsome tea and coffee service prior to his departure, and an illuminated address is to be sent to him when finished. Despite the fact that the subscriptions were raised exclusively among those who professed to be friends of Dr. Hood'ti, and no canvassing was done, the amount collected was really surprising. The number who attended the meeting was far in excess of what was anticipated, but fortunately the arrangements for their accom- modation were equal to the emergency, in fact the whole affair was managed beautifully, and it should be one of those "red letter" days in Dr. Hood's life, upon which hiB memory will dwell fondly and lingeringly in the future. "With regard to Mr. M'Farlane, unfortunately his departure was unex- pected, and did not allow of any f...
Ulmarra. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
Ulmarra. FRIDAY. Rinking.-Asl expected, this race fell to Mr. Bmythe, the final heat heing between him and Master Capp. The cup and bangle are very hand- some ornaments, and will doubtless in afterlife recall pleasant recollections to their possessors. A match'has sprung ont of the race, and will be run off on next Wednesday night at Grafton. The match is between Messrs. Smythe and Matthews, both off scratch. Mr. Matthews will, I hear, be staying in Grafton, and will therefore be in good practice ; but as he will have to start on level terms with his opponent, his chances are necessarily less than in the last handicaps, where he had 10 yards start conceded him. 1 therefore see no reason for altering' my opinion, and expect to see Smythe win, The betting down here of late is somewhat in favor of Smythe. Wharves and Shipping.-Maize has been rather slow of shipment lately, but pigs have been exceptionally lively, as many as eighty odd leaving per s.s. Australian. I suppose this is the ...
The Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
The Land Bill. "WISH counsel haring prevailed, the danger that threatened the passing of the Land Bill WOB averted in the Legislative Council on Tuesday. On the last sitting day the Govern- ment had threatened that if certain amendments made in clause 43 vrere not struck out the whole hill would very likely be sacrificed. After a long discussion on Tuesday the i two amendments that the Government particularly ob- jected to were negatived, nud eventually the clause which deals with extension of homestead and pastoral leases was I passed, not, however, before, at the instance of the Govern I ment, an addendum had been made to one of the Bub sections so as to provide not only that the land board shall inquire and report whether or not in consideration of im- provements an extension of the term of the lease shall be granted, but also that the board shall recommend a definite term of extension. A proviso was added that if an exten- sion of any pastoral lease in the central division- shal...
Differential Sates. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 14 September 1889
Differential Sates. Is a leading article the ArsmAtiiW STAR says :-But the commissioners have not only begun a war against the steam- ship companies, they have also begun one ngainst the team- sters in the New England district. It would seem that the railway authorities bring wool from Tenterfield to Sydney for the same rate that they charge for conveying wool from Armidale to Sydney, and the up freight is, we believe, dealt with in the same manner. Now as the Queensland Bailway Commissioners have not altered their rates, this charge made by Mr. Eddy and his colleagues conld not have been designed for the purpose of preventing the trade with the northern parts of New England from going to Brisbane. More probably it was intended to smash the teamsters, who for several years have done a profitable business in carrying wool from Tenterfield and Glen Innes to Grafton. But whether such were the intention or not, the policy is having that effect. Perhaps there was another design, namely, ...

In all there were 750 possible marks. He regarded it as an important matter to make the presentation, as it was within the rango of possibility that he was addressing some future premier, judge, barrister, clergyman or merchant. He pointed out that it was possible for any pupil to- be successful, as all were of an equality, and he trusted that ...
