Echoes and Opinions. THE GEAFTON SUPERIOR PUBLIC SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Echoes and Opinions. THE GEAFTON SUPEKIOB PUBLIC SCHOOL. THE recent presentation of Centennial medals at the Superior Public schcol, Grafton, was of a very interesting character ; while the facts placed before the public, in the remarks made by Mr. LOBBAN and Mr. THOBNE, must have been very instructive to those who do not interest themselves in Public school work, and to all; those remarks are of a highly encouraging character. It is gratify- ing to find that in the teachers we have in these dis- tricts there are persons who are not only well fitted for the positions they occupy, but that many of them hold certificates of qualification beyond the status of the schcola in which they serve. This is a point well worthy approval, that teachers »re in advance of their schools. Another source of grati- fication is to be found in the average attendance of pupils compared with the enrolment number, and not the less so is that other fact that the amount of school fees in arrear is very small...

Commercial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Commercial. THERE is very little announced for thc -week, and the fact of Thursday being a holiday interferes with business. The markets are quiet, and it twduld seem that drafts of fat stock arc not moving off*.so-freely from the northern rivers*;vto the Sydney markets. A very large number have been sent down from the Clarence and Richmond, but we believe the business, as a speculation, has not been a remunerative one, the margin between Sydney and local rates being too small. The spring is the earliest known for years, and grass is looking splendid. The condition of stock is unusually good for the time of year. Maize is again rather duller.

MR WHITE'S STEAM YACHT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

¿jj M? WHITE'S STEAM YACHT. YESTERDAY Mr. R. H. D. WHITE entertained the Mayor and Aldermen of the city on Ms new steam ' yacht. This vessel was built in Sydney, and she is i the largest steam yacht, and for the matter of that ' the largest yacht of any kind, that has been built i in the colony. She is a beautiful vessel, is fairly i fast, and very comfortable. But she will prove an \ expensive luxury, and so .1 have no doubt Mr. i White will discover before a twelve months has passed. .' When he has taken trips to the several ( points of interest on the Australian coast, I daresay he will want to sell her, and if he Bhoúld, he will find it extremely difficult to get a purchaser. For some time past-nearly twoyeára in fact-^-there has been a beautiful auxiliary steam yacht of about 130 tons burden lying in RushcuttersVBay. She cost about £10,000 to build";' the owner is willing to sell her for £40C0, and probably he would "take less, but he has offered her-in -vain. This is not surpr...

PROTECTED AND UNNPROTECTED LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

PBOTECTED AND TXNPEOTECTED LABOUB. ON Thursday evening Mr. EDMUNDS, one of the members for South Sydney, lectured to a large audience on protected and unprotected labour. To a great extent his adresa consisted of a criticism of Mr. G. H. Beid's speech at the Free-trade Confer- ence on Protection in America, and a reply to recent .articles in the Daily Telegraph, on the manufac- tures of Victoria and New South Wales. By quota- tions from world-r ecognised authorities, Mr. EDMUNDS proved that Mr. Beid's statements con- cerning America were incorrect, and that the working classes in that country were better off than the similar classes in any other part of Europe. He also showed that the manufacturing industries'in New South Wales that do not enjoy the benefit of a Protective tariff are .steadily declining, whilst the protected ones were' making headway. Mr. EDMUNDS has a logical intellect; he has also a pleasing address, and therefore he s likely to retain the confidence of the South ...

DEPUTATION RE SUPPRESSION OF A NEWSPAPER [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

DEPUTATION EE SUPPBESSION OP A NEWSPAPEB NEVEB has Sir HENEY PABKBS been interviewed by a larger deputation than the one that waited on him on Thursday to request him to suppress the Dead Bird. It consisted of about 50 clergymen and about 150 lay representatives of the several Churches. The deputation was headed by Mr. VARLEY, the Evangelist. But they got no satis- faction from Sir Henry. The fact that all those reverend gentlemen and religious laymen waited on him for the purpose mentioned, waa regarded by him as a proof that every man of them had read the obnoxious publication. He rebuked them for having dipped into such literature, and informed them with considerable einpressment, that he made it a point of never looking at a newspaper that was believed to be immoral in its tone. This waa very rough on the Deputation, but it will be ack- nowledged, I think, that they laid themselves open to the rebuke. Mr. Varley told the Premier that at the very moment they were interviewing him...

Australian Pasture Grasses. II. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Australian Pasture Grasses. BY ANGUS MACKAY, F.C.S. I THOUGHT it possible that some correspondent would have written concerning1 the statement in preceding paper that there was so little encourage- ment for collecting seed of any of the indigenous pasture grasses, and sowing and cultivating them, in preference to the introduced grasses that are now available for cultivation. The circumstance is so opposite to very generally accepted opinions concerning the undoubted value of many of the native Australian grasses. But then the statement and the facts adduced are the results of tests applied more extensively and conclusively than any others that I am aware of in any part of Aus- tralia. Hence the reason for writing so definitely on this subject. Bnt it does not follow that all efforts to improve the native pastures should be abandoned. On the contrary, they are capable of immense improvement. In many situations the sheep and stock-carrying value of indigenous pas- ture land might be d...

REV. DR. M'GREGOR INTERVIEWED. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

KEV. DB. M'GBEGOB INTEBVTEWED. ONE of the most influential divines in the Presby- terian Church of Scotland is Dr. M'GBEGOB. I believe he occupies the pulpit in Edinburgh that ] used to be filled by the famous Dr. GUTHBIE, and be is nearly as accomplished a pnlpit orator as that distinguished man. The rev. gentleman was in Sydney this week, but unfortunately he was not sufficiently well in health to preaoh or lecture. But he expressed his opinions on a variety of subjects to a deputation from the Presbyterian Church, and to one or two newspaper reporters. He told the clergy who waited upon him that he had heard that the Church of England in Australia had .tried .to sit on the Presbyterian Church, but that it was useless for them to do that, because the latter was a Scriptural and an Apostolic Church, and not a sect. I take an interest in ecclesiastical matters, but I have not heard that either here or in Melbourne the Church of England bas tried to subject the Presbyterians to the l...

"Mind Your Own Business." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

" Mind Your Own Business." THE Armidale Chronicle has not been successful in itB endeavour to ignore the fact that the députa* tion from Armidale to the Railway Commissioners was sounldy snubbed by Hr. Eddy. That gentleman very justly pointed out that the question as to the railway route was one that interested Inverell much more . than Armidale, and the Armidale meddlers were in effect told to mind their own business. When they brought forward their pet Guyra scheme, Hr. Eddy professed the blankest ignorance on the subject. His duty, he said, was to report on the proposed line from Glen Innes to Inverell, and the bringing forward of rival routes and the venting of local spleen in his presence was simply waste of time. Kow, finding that their old arguments have fallen so flat, the Chronicle people I have evolved another. This last effort endeavours j tb show that the Inverell people need not expect a railway at all if they intend to use it by trading with the north; because, forsoot...

THE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

THE LAND BILL. THE Land Bill has got back to the Lower House, and by this time next week it should be ready for the GOVERNOR'S assent. The amendments made by the Council are not of a very important charac- ter, and I do not expect they will cause a great deal of discussion in the Legislative Assembly. So far as I can learn, the representatives generally are not hostile to the amendments. This Bill has been a. Godsend to the government, for if it had not} been in the way, they would have been turned out of office long ago. On one occasion quite recently they would certainly have been ejected but for the 'measure. My hope is that when the Bill has become law it will prove as beneficial as its authors declare it will ; but on that subject I must confess I feel a great deal of doubt.

EVIDENCE FOR THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

EVIDENCE* FOB THE PUBLIC WOBKS COMMITTEE. OSE . of the Sectional Committee's of the Public Works Committee has been collecting evidence on the stat in connection with the Culcairn Corowa railway proposal. The nature of the evidence may la useful in connection with that required for our lo;al railways, whenever it I may be called for. Statistical information was produced, showing the great advancement of ? the district. The opinions of representative public j men were expressed and firmly reiterated, that with the desired railway communication the progress would be very much more marked. The line w£3 needed for the proper development of the districts resources. Many thousands of acres additional to a large area now under cultivation would be brought under crop. Considerable traffic would result from the carriage of stock. Â saving of 4d to 6d per bushel would be afforded to the farmers in the car- riage of grain, through being brought close to market. The traffic in timber would be c...

A PUBLIC SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

A PUBLIC SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. WHILE it ia very gratifying to find such educa- tional progress being made, we think something might be done for the children attending the Fublic schools of this district in the way of athletic exerciser, on the principle of complying with the injunction "sot to keep Jack always at work." We are disposed "ip think that a Public Schools AtbJet.c Association might be formed in this dis- trict, with much advantage. That such an associa- tion, when it became ta be understood, would be largely supported and patronised by the public, we have no doubt. There is an Association of this kind in Sydney. The first annual sports under its auspices was held recently, under the patron- age of tho GOVEBNOB and the MINISTER FOB PUBLIC INSTRUCTION. The entry list for the various events reached a total of 1166. A holiday was granted for the occasion ; a large number of I persons attended, and everything went off with the greatest eclat.

THE AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY STUDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

THE AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY STUDENT. I SEE by a cablegram that the University of Ox ford has made a concession in regard to Aus- tralian University students. It has decided that any student who has taken a degree in an Aus- tralian University will be allowed to take a degree in Oxford in eighteen months from the time of his admission. Considering that the degree examina- tions in Sydney are much stiffer than those at Oxford or Cambridge, we have no call to be thank- ful for the concession. In fact, it is of the nature of an insult since it implies that our Universities are very small here, and the degrees of very inferior quality.

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Sydney, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Sydney, Monday. Ir is rumoured that there are dissensions in the Queensland Cabinet, caused by the resignation of Sir Thoa. Mcilwraith, as Vice-President of the Executive Council. A man named Michael Walsh presented a pistol at Mr. John Dillon, M.P., in Bourke-street, Mel- bourne, on Saturday. Walsh followed Dillon from Waterford, and in a letter to the Press stated that two thousand was owing him from the Land League. Dillon states that Walsh's case was tried, and dismissed ; but he (Dillon) personally induced the Executive Committee to award Walsh £100, out of compassion. The Wallsend miners rejected a motion, That the masters be notified that the general agreement shall terminate at the end of the year. Owing to a false alarm of fire at Mr. Varlet's lecture in the Protestant Hall on Sunday, a panic ensued. One man was seriously injured. The bodies of two men killed at the Melbourne fire have been recovered. Weaver, for the murder of Captain Greenies?, o...
