The Men Who Make Farming Fay. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889

The Men Who Males Farming: Fay. Upon the question of men who have had no previous experience in farming making a success of the cultivation of small tracts, it is only necessary to point to hundreds of instances in the State to prove the fulla:y of the assertion that such a thing is not possible. Take two men coming here from the east — one an old farmer, the other a man who can not run a straight furrow to save his life. The farmer has to got rid of all his precon ceived notions about fanning, and finds that In; has much to learn and .unlearn about the proper methods of cultivating the soil iu California. He is continually following his eastern ideas, not taking heed of what he sees about him, and then he is constantly doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. On the other hand, the newcomer without experience in farming has everything to loam. He naturally goes to his neighbours who have been here tho longest for information, and having no early farming education to forget, he achi...

The Human Voice the Seal Music. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889

Tlie Human Voice the Seal Music. Singing cheers and consoles ; it adorns life, it makes it aimiable and endurable. Hymns iearnt in childhood cling to one's memory for life, and if they are attached to the memories of the mother they give birth to a twofold religion in the recpsses of tho heart. If you visn, u mciury ui. wuuieii 111 j^ii^juiiu yuu uie almost always greeted by tho singing of young fresh voices ; recollections of childhood and of home are awakened, and .the stern slavery of trade is forgotten. Our work women and our peasant women have a hard life,- and have no heart for singing; while our middle-class women throw away their voices — that is to say, all the charm of their per sonality — in favour of the piano, which does not admit of mediocre handling. They think the piano is more 'correct.' It assumes the existence of a drawing-room, aud costs a deal of money. This being so, what dons it matte.r if it is a wretched instrument ? Let me for a moment wail over this absurd...

The forms are so numerous, and Graduate so insensibly one into the other, that no very clear line can be drawn between them.

The Geelong Tweed Factories. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 16 February 1889

The Geelong Tweed Factories. SPEAKING at parramatta last week, Sir Henry Parkes stated (according to the Daily Telegraph) that "At the present moment the tweed factories at Geelong were shut up, and would not be opened until the men accepted 4s a day as wages." This assertion was made the most of by the freetrade party on Saturday last, and it had the effect of gaining a number of votes in this district for the old members. Like many other statements made by Sir Henry Parkes and the freetrade company, it proved to be a falsehood ; but it was no doubt concocted to   serve a purpose, as Parkes believes that any thing is fair in purpose. The freetrade papers speak of "Chinaman Dibbs," but they overlook bankruptcy and falsehood on the side they bolster up. Some people want to make us believe that a lying Premier is necessary for the welfare of the country. The following letter, addressed to the editor of the Daily Telegraph, will show how truthful are some of the statements...

The Farmers and the Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 23 February 1889

The Femora on! the Meetloa. Pkrhapbjio other class in tho community do politics affect jo much as tho agricultural. Yet farmers, as a rule, are not the most prominent in electioneering, nor so united in their action as they ought to be in returning the most suitable members. In the great questions that were before the country in the p.lnainc nnliticn.1 cn.niimis'n. farmers can lay claim, however, to have been* morn in accord, although one or'two. electorates, such as the Hastings and Manning, have proved notable exceptions. The 'arrival only iast weak of 16,000 bushels of maize from Port Natal on an already low market, should cause serious reflection, and legislators should be invoked to prevent the products or* the uncivilised from entering into equfcl competition with the home-grown cereals. The issue is clearly foreseen if permitted. The annihilation in our district of the once' flourishing and established banana industry, through the unrestricted impor tation of the Fijian produ...

Fifth Annual Exhibition of the Tort ICftoq.Tiuio and Hastings Distriot A. and S. Sooioty. On Tuesday morning, the 19th February, the day previous to tho show, a fresh breeze wu blowing from the south, and by dinner time it had increased almost to a galp, bring ing up heavy clouds. By many it was thought that wet weather was going to militate against tho success of the exhibi tion, as had been the case in years gone by. By evening, however, the wind had blown itself out, and although one or two light sliowei-s fell during* the night, they were of no consequence. Wednesday morning broke very cloudy, but as no rain fell, it greatly favored a successful opon ing. The atmosphere was uico and cool, so that the live stock, -tc, did not languish with the oppressive heat which is usual at this period of tho year, and there fore appeared to much greater advantage. All Tuesday afternoon, and till a very late hour at night, the members of the committee and others were kept hard at work decorati...
