A Trip to Wyalong. THE GOLD FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

f A Trip to Wyalong. [By Junius.] THE GOLD FIELD. The population of th« field has been variously estimated at between 7000 and 10,000, and although Mr. Slee is reported to have opined that 10,000 men are there tho number is generally believed to be nearer 7000. As has often been stated, there is not sufficient work to keep a fourth of this number engaged, and a very large number are constantly prowling about with evidently sinister motives. Tho lona fide digger is honest, industrious, and civil, and always willing and even glad to give an enquirer any information he can. Tho loafer op. the other hand is waiting about tho vicinity of his ! likelv nvnv until such time as a tent becomes unoccupied, when ho at once enters and supplies himself with what valuables he can annex. By a notice in the Government Gazette, we leatn that Wyalong has been proclaimed a gold fit Id. Thero is no doubt that even should it fail as such, a fairly large town may be left, in which ca?e good will have even...

It is reported from Zanzibar that Great Britain ?will retain control of Uganda, and administer the territory locally.

A Fallen Wire Puller. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

A Fallen Wire Puller. A paragraph in The Times of February 23 ( occurring in its New York letter, says that pjuch interest had been aroused by the trial of Mr. John Y. McKane, of Q-raveaend, Coney Island, for election frauds. Mr. McKnne, it goes od to say for many years has been a potent factor in decidiug the New Yorfc elections for the Presidency. He was sentenced to six years' imprisonment, but an appeal is to be made against the decision of the Court. The career of this political machinist, which has been narrated for Hie Times readers by its New York correspondent1, iB an instructive lesson to democracies. The chief teaching to be derived from it is that if the people wish to govern, they must not shirk their duties, nor by apathy or indolence let the control o£ affairs get into the hands of deoign ing and ambitious individuals. McKane had made hitnBelf a great political boss. He '? was a leader in religious and charitable work also, He amassed a fortune, and probably the secre...

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. TBv Zara.1 A pleasant vice-regal outing was given on Satur day last to Manly. Lady Duff and a party went down by the Government steam launch while the Governor and his daughter rode round by tho Spit. They all met at the wharf, and then took a walk round the town returning for lunch on the launch. The weather was lovely and the outing most enjoyable.

Literary News, Notes, etc. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

Literary News, Notes, etc., | There are certain ' canny' Scots who keep green the memory of ' Bobby' Burns by pub lishing an annual of the literature relating to the poet. This au'iual, which ia compiled with loving care, is published in Kilmarnock by D. Brown & Co., and ia well worth reading by all who do more than dip into the fas cinating versc-B of one of the greatest poets of any age. In Temple Bar for February there ia a story of how TerinyHon received the first copy of ' Maud' while he wc.b a visitor at a country bouse, ana now he was prevailed upon to rend tbe poem under rather discouraging circum stances. Mr. and Mrs. Carlyle were among the guests. Now, Carlyle would not permit himself to be read to by anybody. The pro blem was how to get out of the way. All the visitors in the hou»e were anxious to listen to Tennyson's delightful reading. Lord and Lady Ashburton were kept waiting. Chairs had been arranged in a quiet sitting-room.

The Farm and Garden. BEE-KEEPERS' COMMANDMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

The Farm and Garden. BEE-KEEPEBS' COMMANDMENTS. That bee-keepers have duties to perform to their little pets all must admit if they expect returns at all adequate to the coBt of main taining an apiary. George Rochenbach of Minnesota says : The following whether they were written by some modern Moses and engraved on tablets of stone on Mount Sioai, or not, ought to ba engraved in letters of gold in the memory of every apiarist in this broad land. I have been repeatedly urged to draw up a set of rules for the observance of tbe patronB of honey production. I have pre ferred like Moses, to give my inspiration in the form of a decalogue, without the observa ance of which no patron need hope to make the land flow with milk and honey. 1st. — Thou shalt not starve nor stint thy bees for food, nor give them poor, innutri tions or unwholesome food of any kind whatsoever, but an abundance of that which is palatable and good for their system, to retain full strength for the harvest ; for I l a»...

The Wine-growing Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 14 April 1894

The Wine-growing Industry. On the subject of the wine-growing industry Mr. John Hill writes as follows to the Herald : — ' Having had 20 years' experience on the Hunter River, I venture from experience to affirm that our wine-growers are approaching seasons something like those 14 years back, when some of my must went aa high as 37. My reason for thinking so is that previous to those seasons there had been many wet seasons like we are having now, which were the cause of the vines doing well as tho drier seasons came on ; the weather being much warmer, than it has been ot late years, causing the grapes to ferment much sooner. The must which I have made this year, at a vineyard near Cessnock, has reached an average of 21, fermented well, and is the making of wine which when three years old should be worth 5s per gallon in bulk. This vineyard was sul phured well this season with the very best sulphur, consequently tho grapes were very sound and healthy looking. A portion of this vineya...

Itjis expected that the gathering will be an important one from the fact that it i3 the Jubilee Show, it being exactly fifty years since the first show was held in Maitland ; and also from the fact that National prizes to the extent of £350 are being competed for, in addition to the usual annual prizes. The prizo schedule comprises over 700 classes, an immense advance on the twenty-five of the first Show, fifty years ago, and when only twenty secured exhibits.

Slit Geouge Dibbs undertook last week to ask Mr. Eddy whether or not he bad said, in conversation with a newspaper reporter, that the decrease of the railway and tramway revenue bad a serious effect upon our- credit in England, seeing that the English money-; lender regarded tbe tramways and railways of New South 'Wales as their principal aecurity. We do cot quite see, if Mr. Eddy bolda this opinion so damaging to the good .sense or our .English creditors, why he is to be blamed for expressing it. His opinion does not alter the fact, and as far as his management of the railway and tramway systems is con cerned, it seems to ns^that it is likely to be; more vigorous and Judicious from the pre «nmption that on it depends the maintenance; of New South 'Wales credit. Surely we should not condemn Mr. Eddy for magnifying the office of himself and his colleagues. It la almost superfluous to write a word in V correction of what Mr. Eddy supposes to be v the English sense of the security for ...
