PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES MONDAY, MAY 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 15 May 1875
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES Monday, May 8. In the Legislative Assembly, — On the Order of the Day being called for the rusumption of the adjourned debate (on the motiion of Mr. Garrett). — ' That the Lands Acts Amendment Bill be read a second time,' — Mr. Cohen addressed the House, regretting that a more perfect measure had not been introduced ; suggesting alterations in the extent of areas allowed under conditional purchase, and recom mending fixed payments instead of long mdebt ment as now, with interest chargeable. He also criticised the wording of some of the clauses of the bill as being needlessly vague in construction, and so liable to be misunderstood. Mr. Hopkins was not unwilling to support the bill, but thought it would have been far better for the Government to have confined the scope of it to legislating, in a declaratory manner, as to free selections by minors, and collusive, or ' vicarious ' selections ; leaving other matters to be legislated upon at some future oppo...

THE PAST CRICKET SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 15 May 1875
THE PAST CRICKET SEASON. By Tom Bbown. It has been the custom of the conductors of this honourable periodical from time immemorial to have the doings of each cricket season recorded at the earliest heralding of each coming winter. The task is not a pleasant one, however. I feel, as a pleasant speaker personating the past season j at a cricket dinner once said, as if I was assisting | at my own funeral obsequies, and besides, I have : always had a lurking conviction that a great deal ' too much is talked and a great deal too much is written about cricket. We Victorians certainly play the game a great deal, but we as certainly talk about it and write about it a great deal more. Of course, our talking and writing is always the concentrated essence of wisdom and good' sense, but, for all that, our cricket would be more of a pleasure, and less of a labour or a business, if we refrained a little more from so closely reviewing, criticising, and compiling statistics over it as we do. In the...

We could have wished for a larger attendance at the meeting on Tuesday. It is not only that some of the townspeople, who should Lave supported the movement, were absent ; but even the country people— the suitors in our Courts — the applicants at our Lands Office— who are so frequently unable to gain access to the township, might have made a point of assisting an effort to improve our means of communication. We do not care to discuss the relative merits or demerits of Mr. James Watson, in bis capacity as member for the Lnchlan— a constituency of which our readers form but a email fraction. Having frequently expressed our approval of his political career, an ap proval which no act of his as yet would incline us to reverse, we should bo sorry to find room in our columns for any ill-natured comment on his action ; yet, we cannot but notice that in the estimates for classified roads, as printed in the Sydney papers, the constituency which he represents has allotted to it the smallest sha...

PARLIAMENT OP NEW SOUTH WALES. TmrBSDAT. Mat-6. ? - 'v - iNithe Legislative Council, — Sir Alfred' fctephiri moved tbeiecond reading of! thtf^MfdicM^Tnj'eSpiBining that the' object Was, as far as possible, to protect persons suffer ing under disease, or other bodily ailments, from medical ot surgical treatment by;unskHled, pgpo-- rant individuals, and to enable persbns'r^quiHng medical or surgical aid to distinguish qualified from unqualified practitioners. He pointed out that it would not exclude any persons from pipe lining medicine' or surgeiy, or any particular system or systems of medicine. It would tend to prevent fraud upon the community, and abuses by men who pretended to what, they did not know, and practised to the danger of the public. He pointed out that the bill was less stringent than measures with a like object in operation in the UnitedKingdom and her 'colonies. Mr. Holt streiiuqusiy opposed the bill, as likely to create an arbitrary 'power prejudiced to one system o...
