The Speakership. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 9 March 1889
The Speakershlp. The Sydney Morning Herpld qf March IS? referring to theffetition lodged against the return of Mr. J. H. Young, says :— Unless vare be. taken the Legislative Assembly may? find itself in an embarrassing position within the next few days. A petition ha3 been received against the return of 'Mr. J. H. Young, and when the allegations of that petition come to be inquired into, the 'effe'et will be to raise two questions — first, whether Mr. Youngrwas duly elected; and next, whether .the HouseTias a Speaker. The Speaker must be one of the members of the House, nnd if the Committee of Elections and Qualifications determined atliat Mr. Young had not been duly elocted, he would cease to be a rurmber, -and would therefore cease to be Speaker, and the House would proceed to elect another member to be1 Speaker in liis place. All that* is plain enouch; but when it is asked how. will the business of the Assemby be carried on prior to the adjudication of the committee upon the peti...

An Ephemeral Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 9 March 1889
An Ephemeral Go'vornment. Exit Dibbs, enter Parkes. When the last curtain fell in connection with the Irecont ? Parlioinentary elections, it wns patent to the merest tyro in politics that the Dibbs Govern ment would have a short existence. Although the recent appeal to the country went to prove that the wave of protection was spread ing over the land, it ftevurtlieless left the protectionists in a very small minority ; and it was easily Been that the Dibbs Cabinet wns doomed, unless, indeed, the spirit of lihcrality and fair play was exhibited by the oppositionists. This, however, was not expected for a moment at the hands of Sir Hoiiry Pai'kcs, for self, and nothing eke, is iiis first concern. Immediately the House met, and at a tinm wheu several protectionist members were absent, tho leader of the Opposition tabled a motion To the effect that the Ministry did not possess the conlidenco of the country, and, as oxpneted, the 'tjisolution was carried on Wednes day morning by a majori...
The Curiosities of Drinking. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 9 March 1889

Times have changed materially in the direc jtion ..^ii^vtiie'^er.^Ol'JbraeH ^anticipated since i|je wrote, 'We shall probably outlive the custom of liardjdrinkjng, which was so long one of our- national! vices.' We may not yet-e, strictly speaking, IFsober peonle : we shall probably, pofe SirpVjlfrid Lawaon, never be a nation of total abstainers ; but the days when, if not refined, it was at least res pectable to drink to excess, have passed away, never to return. We shall scarcely find any one nowadays, for example, to equal a certain Mr. Vanhorn, a London merchant, of whom it is recorded iu the Gentleman'* Magazine of Julyj, 1801, that, at tlie Bull Inn, Bishops gate-street, hn used each day to, drink four bottles of port am} begin a fifth, and that he carried this on for so long a period that he is computed to have drunk 35,688 bottles. * Iu connection, however, with drinking and drink, there is an amount of folk-lore which f possesses considerable ...
Crucity to Vernon Boys. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 9 March 1889
Gruolty to Ver&oa Soya. One of those cases which do not often come under the notice of the Bench was heard at the local police court on Tuesday last, when a man named Ourran was charged with assaulting his apprentice||from . the .ghip ' Vernon,' by kicking him about the head and other parts of tho body. To state the factB of the case briefly— the boy, who had been in Ourran's employ for some fourteen months, asserted that some short time ago he took two melons without his master's per mission, for which he was brutally kicked about aud otherwise ill-treated. This caused him to run away, and- seek protection. On the other hand defendant endeavoured to show that the boy was beaten with a stick for picking up a stone to Mrs. Curran, for which he stated that he gave the boy 'what he thought ho dperved ;' and also that he was of a very bad character. Although the boy's character was not angelic, defendant Jiad not com plained to the police wheu on thrsir visit of inspection ; nor...
The End of Pigott. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 9 March 1889
The End of Figbtt. A cable message; conveys to us the iiowb of Pigott's suicide. Of all forgerera, perjurers, and scoundrels, he was surely the greatest. After having led the Times, by forgeries and falsehoods, into an enormous expense, and, what is unquestionably of more ilioment to the proprietary of that paper, into a false position before the world, he confessed his principal revelations to be fraudulent, and subsequently fled from the grasp of justice* From Madrid, with incalculable effrontery, he wrote to Mr. Soamer, the Times' solicitor, for ' what tin had promised.' His where abouts being thus revealed, Mr. Soa'mcr communicated the fact to 4he police, and Pigott 4vas\»rTM^S-jn ftp '^otal in^jthe Spanish jt^pijal. #?H«; evaded; his captors finally, . howover, by BhootingJ himself in tlie head; probably. : the: best waj^- he could btwe found out, of any extremely disagreeable position. He; had staked everything upon --the success of his plot oeainBt the Parnellites, and he had...

Public Servants. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 9 March 1889
PublioTierantBi, The conjiuoTof Mr. Henry Giddings, who affirms that hgfe the lessee of the Blackman's Point ferry, towards Mr. H. St. John, is by, no means creditable. According* to the Evidence given at the police court on Tuesday last, by the prosecutor, Mr. Codings behaved iu u uregraueiui manner towards mmf ana without the least provocation, save the late neBs of the hour. Unfortunately tho pro ceedings instituted against Gjddings by the aggrieved had an unsatisfactory termination. If Giddings used the language attributed to him, and we quite believe he did, he deserves to be taught a lesson he will not soon forget. He is in the position of a public servant ; and is bound, by tlie conditions of sale, to attend at any hour of the night or day to the requirement!) of the travelling public, and his scala of charges for this service arc fixed by the Government. He not only, abused Mr. St. John, but subjected htm W considerable delay ; and if this vile conduct is not put down prompt...
