ON THE RIVER. A Christmas Holiday. BY PAUL TWYFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 February 1900

> --? ON THE RIVER. A Christmas Holiday. BY PAUL TWYFORD. *Oh river, gentle tiver 1 gliding on Tu silence underneath the starless eky ! Thine is a mystery that never rests, ! JEran while the living slumber. ' All night Thon givest moisture to the thirsty roots Of the lithe willow and overhanging plane, Jknd cherishest the herbage of thy hank, . . . . And sendest up, Perpetually the vapours from thy face. To steep the hills with dew, or darken Beaven With Drifting clouds that trail thy shadowy shower." W. COLLEN BRYANT. The poetic and artistic must be 'dead in the man who cannot see in every yard in our river's course a picture ; in every point and dat and reach a poem. For six -weeks-morning, noon and night -I have seen the pictures, felt the poety ; but alas ! I am neither painter or poet, but simply a plain prosaic pen-puncher. As such then, I will endeavour in my own humble way to describe somewhat the beauties of the river around Lower Portland and Colo, and also something of...

The Premiers' Conference. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 February 1900

The Premiers' Conference. PREMIERS can meet and discuss things like the ordinary man in the street, and the result of their deliberations do not necessarily make a thing assured. This is especially the case when the sub ject matter is of great importance, and is. subject to revision of Par liament, eb that the decisions come to by the recent conference are only , interesting and instruc tive, nothing more. Their is an air of compromise about many of the decision which does not entice confidence, such as for instance the yes-no attitude over the Local Governor question. In the first place this is not a matter that con cerns the colonies as a whole, though if they can come to a com mon agreement, no harm will be done. If one colony likes to abolish its local Governor as an unnecessary extravagance she can do so without reference to the other colonies in any way whatever : of course it will mean altering the Constitution of the colony affected, which is an easy matter. The Premiers in ...

PASSING NOTES. The Premiers' Conference. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 February 1900

fcÀSSING NOTES. Thé Premiers' Conference. . -1 THE meeting of the various Premiere which came to a close late last week, cannot be said to i have been marked either by any decisions of a statesmanlike order, or by great unanimity of opinion among the politicians present. Apart from the truest ions of the new Hebrides and the New Guinea land grab, their delitera tions were confined to matters of general Federal .concern, and no conclusions wore arrived which are likely to influence ..thé trend of public opinion, *fhe first matt. decided upon was the statu, oí State Governors after , Federe* ion, ^eir method of *^>r pointment aníj. the salaries,pay»-! játye ; the., decision come tb waa that; everyÇWng flhoiUd^ «nonld be ' taken wlien the/öccaf .fetípí warranted to, >*eduqe - the salaries payable.

Provincial Views. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 February 1900

Provincial Views. IN a recent leader the Sydney " D. T." says : " New South Wales has given up, for the sake of Fed eration, her rich province of the Riverina, &c." This is a beauti ful illustration of the narrowness of view of certain anti-federal individuals, who reside mostly in Sydney and who consider that " New South Wales" and " Syd ney" are convertible terms. In what sense has New South Wales given up the Riverina, unless we are to understand that during all1 these years New South Wales has been making a jolly good thing out of the Riverina by extracting from that portion more taxation than was ever returned to her in ' the shape of public works : if I such be the case, then it is quite time that justice was done. But j .what the " D. T." wants its Syd ney readers to understand is, that forttnEèsFyears the tradeof ïfiè Riverina has been forced to Syd ney, some three or four hundred miles, much to the advantage of Sydney, instead of being allowed to seek its natural ma...

Patriotic Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 February 1900

Patriotic Newspapers. WITH ali the facts before us, with regard to the situation in South Africa, it seems incredible that any journal of repute can openly publish disloyal sentiments with regard to the conflict which is proceeding. Yet this is what the Btdletim is doing, and it cannot be said it is voicing the opinion of any great section of the com munity except the discontented section of the foreign element, and the academic theorists of the Holman order. The result of this war will be either complete victory for British arms ; or, if she abandon the contest,'it will' be such a blow to her prestige that it might well be said that the dis integration of the Empire will commence. Cannot the 'Bulletin recognise this very obvious fact ?? It cannot be expected that they share with their foreign readers, a desire for the Empire's down fall. There was a time, certainly, when they openly expressed re public sympathises, but surely their eminent proprietary are aware that no other nation...

; THÍ DISCOVERY OF THE - HAWKESBURY. Contributed by the Hon. Wm. Walker, M. LX. j _ i í In án article of this kind it will naturally be expected .that at the commencement some account should be given of the discovery ¿«of the Hawkesbury. This is graphically described in Captain Hunter's work on the colony. It was the chief event which distinguished the reign of our first Governor, Captain Phillip. The land about Port Jackson was fonnd to be poor so the ; Governor deter-1 mind to make some exploration in search of better soil for agriculture. ^ Captain Hunter says:-"On the 6th of June, 1789,1 was engaged in a party with the Governor on a visit to Broken Bay. The party consisted of the Governor, Captain Collins (the Judge Advocate), Cap tain Johnston, of the Marines, Mr White, surgeon, Mr. Worgan, Mr. Fowell and myself, from the Sirus, and two men, all armed with mus kets, etc. We landed in the north part of Port Jackson and proceeded along the coast to the Northward.

ELECTION OF MAYOR; The Windsor Borough Council met on Wednesday to elect a Mayor. ' The Chair was occupied by the retiring Mayor (Aid. J. J. Paine) and all the Aldermen were present. Aid. Dean said he had great pleasure in proposing that the pre sent Mayor, Aid. John Jackson Paine be re-elected Mayor for the current year. He had proposed1 Aid. Paine several times and had never cause to repent one vote given in his favour. He was satisfied1, that all the aldermen were a happy family and approved of Aid. Paine's re-election. He had not sought the position and he (the speaker), thought they could not do better then re-elect him. Aid. Taylor said he had great pleasure in seconding the nomina tion of Aid.

Windsor Policé Court. FBIDAY, FFBETJABY 2MD, 1900. (Before Mr. Galbraith, P.M., and Mesare T. Primrose, J. Boss and Brown. J'e.P.) Â youngster named B. J. Beynolds, a boy who bad been hired out by the state wee charged with absconding from his guardián, Phillip McGuire.

The P.M. : " Well, if he does that you should report the matter to the police."

The P.M. : " Well henceforth, no mat ter how trivial you consider the charge, always report the matter, and have same investigated, then if the master is to blame he ought to be punished."

Sacred Matrimony. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 February 1900

Sacred Matrimony. A WELL-KNOWN and highly re spected Anglican clergyman has recently addressed his flock on the sanctity of the marriage vow. He disapproves of gaily decorating he Church an d such pomp, if it is done to please the vanity of the onlookers, but he likes decorating; the Church "to the glory of God.** He desires to make a marriage ceremony a more solemn function, so that the contracting parties should be impressed with the great responsibilities of their action ; now-a-days a wedding is a signal for convivialty and joy fulness, that is well in its place, but the church which unites the couple regards the union as a sacrament, and should not en courage frivolities and thoughtless j o vi al ty within its walls. Now there , is a good deal of sound sense in all this, but the Revd. gentleman goes on to say that people now enter too readily into the marriage state, and therefore a few years brings them to the Divorce Court, an institution which he regards with horror ami alar...
