It was estimated that of the 106 Chinese who left here by the Cattertliun on Wednesday last there were not more than 10 who had any such expectations.

Wheat and Oats. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 30 March 1889

Wheat cad Oats. Statistics recently published leave very little doubt as to the room for extending the wheat and oat production in our colony. The estimate of 300,289 acres of wheat for 1688-9 calculated to yield 1,572,786 bushels, will leave nearly 6,400,000 bushels to be provided by import, which at the moderate rate of 4s per bushel means no less a sum than £1,280,000 to pass out of New South Wales for breadstuff's alone, more th.m 20s per head of her population. The unfavourabieness of the season has made the resources of the colony unusually small, still it should not be overlooked that immense sums are annually going out of the colony to enrich the farming communities of the other .colonies, which might by a little more foresight be retained hero. The Murray Valley contains 64,681 acres, estimated yield 515,169 bushels, about one-third that of the whole colony for the season. New England, Glen Jnnes, Inverell, Tenterfield and Tamworth districts have 19,279 acres of wheat; esti...

An Amending Land Aot. Owing to a number of pastoral leases expiring no.Kt year tlio Governmuut conceive it to -Ue their duty to pass an Amending Land Act. In the Western Division of the colony there appear to be 314 pastoral leases, and of these fifty-six expire, or come under what is known. as the quinquennial jump m JoaU. seventy* four get this position in 1691, one hundred and sixteen iu 1692, fifty-two in 1693, aiid thirteen in 1694. That is to say, iu each of those years tint leises -in the numbers mentioned will be subject to a statutory increase of 25 per cent, in their rents, which cannot be avoided except by fresh legislation. The Government proposejp provide in the Amending Land Act, wlnfh it is' hoped will bo passed this session, for a repeal at once of the quinquennial increase, or jump up in rents, and to let rents remain as they are until a re-appraisement of the runs for rental purposes can be taken. Legislation: to this end must,' it is obvious, be effected at once i...

Rawdon Island. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

Rawdoa Island, (from our correspondent) I suppose, Mr. Editor, your readers will be just a little concerned to know whether ' Tour Own' has survival the dust storm his last contribution raised, so I come to the fore again. ' Nomadong' wishes to insinu ate that the esteem iu which Pie teacher is held is possibly confined to the members of ?one family. I, however, happen to know such is not the cose ; consequently the term ' our esteemed,' &c, is justified. Another unknown correspondent assumes that I am an advocate for children being compelled to wear boots to school in all weathers. I am glad, Mr. Editor, you give me credit for a little common sense in reference to this item. I certainly do not advocate it, and what is more, neither does the teacher, or else I have been misinformed. The request was made at a time when the weather was fine and the roads dry, consequently com pliance might have been reasonably expected. As regards the punishment inflicted on the children, I th...

Salt and Charcoal for Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

Salt and Charcoal for Figs. Av authority on swine breeding places salt first iu importance as a preventive of stomach diseases, aud believes that salt, of all sub stances, is the best promoter of digestion ob well as an antidote against worms. This breeder has adopted the plan of giving talt to all his animals in water-tight troughs, keeping a supply of salt ou hand continually. He also feeds sonic charcoal with the Knit tn swine that aro closely penned, and gives ashes occasionally under all conditions. A. feeder ,of largo experience recommends mixing a few quarts of salt with the soil in some convenient place, such as an old stump hole, for the hogs to get it. Throw the salt on the ground, and mix by spading up tlie soil. Possibly the better way to salt would be to plaeo iu boxes with ashes or charcoal', or both, and leave the soil out of consideration.; It can al ways be had iu such quantities as nature ' requires. .

The North Coast Districts. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

The North Coast Districts. Almost weekly we read complaints of the shaqieful neglect with which the north eastern portion of the colony has been treated Uy successive governments. Vague promises have boon made, and expensive roports and surveys of various national works have been obtained, apparently ouly as a blind to the residents of the northern districts, wherebv they have been deprived of their legitimate rights ; and the works on which such reports have been made still remain in the obscurity of an unknown and distant future. Some three years ago thn services of the eminent engineer, Sir John Goodo, were obtained, at a very large cost to tho country, to inspect and report upon the best tnethod of improv ing the bar harbours «f the colony. A portion of his report hoi been .received, but bo far the Government bos done nothing whatever to carry out the suggestions therein contained, with the exception perhaps of the promise that a few thousand pounds are to lie expended in improv...

Something Like a Beard. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

Something1 Like a Beard. Hakluyt tells us of a certain Master Killiugwortbc, of the Court of Ivan the Terrible, whose beard was 5ft 2iu. long. It is also ou record that John Mayo, the German painter, had a beard which swept the ground as he walked. These hirsute growths liave hitherto been unrivalled of their kind : but (we liarn from an English journal) they are now put altogether iu the shade by a beard which has reached the extraordinary length of 10ft., aud, we are assured, is Etill growing. The owner, a certain Louis Goulou, is a fore man of ironworks at Montlucon in the French department of the Allier. He was born in the Nievre, and at the early age of 12 was obliged to shave. No sooner was the razor used, however, than %vhiskerf, moustache, and beard became quite unmanageable, and, notwithstanding the activity of all the barbers and the nostrums of all the quacks iu the department, soon quite covered the waistcoat of the youthful patriarch. Goulou is now well advanced in year...
