FARMING, AND FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 11 March 1887

FARMXM6, AND FARMINCt. The severe visitation which haB cast a temporary gloom over tbe commercial outlook on the Clarence and Richmond Rivers, Bhould teach agriculturists a very important lesson aa to the folly of put ting all their eggs in one basket, or, rather, to depend year after year upon two or three staple- crops instead of prosecuting their agricultural researches in 'other directions at the same time. The subject is one of the very greatest practical importance to the community at large, for when the agricultural in terests Buffer other interests suffer in proportion ; more especially is this the case in vast agricultural areas like the Clarence and Richmond, where, unfortu nately, in a very large majority of cases, the antediluvian system of cane or corn is pursued, and nothing else. The evil of this slender dependence on Providence is brought fairly home to the mind of every intelligent farmer when a catas trophe aaoh as the recent flood occurs, and when he sees that thr...

About 150 natives mustered, this number being made up of the Balliua, Liamore, and Twsed tribes, eaoh tribe having their corrobboreo in turn to find whioh is the best, as they are going to meet the Clarence blacks ' at a stand-UD fiarht and corrobboree at the Pelican Trco (Codrington) in a fortnight.
