ON THE RIVER. A Christmas Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

ON THE RIVER. A Christmas Holiday. Br PATO TWYFOBD. finñ fhere is abundant cause for >v¿hese repinings, and' the Suther lands, Lynes and Youngs of former adminstrations have much to answer for. May we be able to «peak more favourably of their snore democratic successor. He, at any rate, is a promising man; would it not be as well, then, to test the sincerity of an O'Sullivan's promise ? But the people must move too. Ministers are only men of the hour, but the people and the liver go together-they are in separable, one's welfare is linked With the other. Half-a-dozen far seeing men may build pretty and commodious residences; but what is the good unless they are known? And what is the good, even then, if there is no daily passenger ser tice that can guarantee some sort of time, and a fair amount of com fort ? A steam boat that can serve its owners by picking up their pro duce and conveying it to market at seasonable rates is one thing, but a well found steamer, having suit able acc...

OBITUARY. Death of Mrs. Norris. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

OBITUARY. Death of Mrs. Norris, It is with extreme regret that we have this week to report the sad demise of a well-known and highly respected resident of Windsor, in the person of Mrs. Susannah Norris, which sad event took place on Friday afternoon last. Deceased, who was 58 years of age, had been ailing for a con siderable time from a series of complaints, but only recently was confined to her bed, where, under her children's careful nursing and the doctor's attention, she lingered on until Friday af ternoon last, when that grim reaper, Death, called her from her worldly sufferings to that Heavenly Home. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon last and was largely attended. Leav ing the house at about 3 o'clock, the cortege wended its way to St. Matthew's Church of England. On entering the Church the "Dead March in Saul" was played by the organist. The Rev. S. G. Fielding delivered an im pressive address, during the course of which he referred in high terms to the life of the...

THE DISCOVERY OF THE HAWKESBURY. CONTRIBUTED BY THE HON. Wm. WALKER, M.L.C. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

THE DISCOVERY OF THE HAWKESBURY. CONTRIBUTED BY THE HON. WM. "WALKER, M.L.C. (Continued.") At tho place where we passed the last night we were examining the ground round us, and about half-a-mile distant some of the gentlemen found a small hut; they saw a person whom they took for a native woman, and who upon our approach fled with great precipitation into the woods. They went to examine the hut and found two small helpless children in it. The poor crea tures were terribly frightened, but upon being kindly treated they seemed to recover a little from their fear. They appeared to be in great distress, apparently from want of food ; they had a little fire by them, and it was found a few wild yams about th( size of a walnut. Upon a sup' position that the parents of th( children would soon return aftei our leaving the place, a hatcher and some other trifles were left ir the hut. Next morning whib the people were employed ii striking the tents, some of th gentlemen again visited the hut ...

Irish Enmity. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

Irish Enmity. ONE of the most remarkable fea tures of the history of the British Empire, is the gross failure her authorities have made in their at tempt to govern Ireland well. While we in Australia to-day are offering troops for England, be cause we realise by our own ex perience that the British system of Government is the most liberal in the world, while the Canadians and other British coloniep are doing the same thing for the same reason, while, the native princes of India are making patt riotic demonstrations, also, for the same reason ; while all this is going on a considerable section of the Irish in Ireland are dis contented with their ldt, and imagine they would welcome any change, feeling that it could not be for the worse. In this senti ment they are supported by their fellow countrymen ia other places, especially in America, and the British statesmen, who can devise a means to do away with this anomaly will be one of the greatest men in history. Glad stone could not do ...

PASSING NOTES. Britain's Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

PASSING NOTES.   Britain's troubles,     SINCE the commencement of the war a great deal has been said and written about European complica- tions, the most probable centre of outbreak, and their consequences. It is now abundantly clear that the Empire has few friends on the Continent of Europe, and none of them are Great Powers. The phenomenal success of British rule wherever the flag is planted, and the energetic extension of the boundaries of the Empire in every quarter of the globe have caused a feeling of jealousy and irritation among other nations, who all de- sire, and are unable for various reasons, to do likewise. They do not take into consideration the advantages to the commerce of their own country which follows     British extension, so keen is their national animosity that it renders them blind as in this case, to their welfare. For Britain's universal policy, all the world over is the "open-door," inviting ...

Mr. Carruthers and the Privy Council. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

Mr. Carruthers and the Privy   Council. DURING the Convention sittings Mr. Carruthers took up a very strong attitude in favor of retain-   ing unimpaired all the rights and priveleges of the people to appeal to the Privy Council, and he thinks now that the Imperial Parliament actually have a right, constitution-   ally, to alter this particular clause   because it is bad. On the strength   of this argument Sir Geo. Dibbs   might consider that that body can   also alter the financial clauses for the same reason, and Mr. Heydon could have the Federal Capital   site also altered, and Jack Haynes   the Constitutional clauses, and so   on until everyone was satisfied.   Mr. Carruthers thinks that the Privy Council is infallible, and   that if that body reverses the de- cision of a local court, the latter is thereby proved to have been &nbs...

The Sydney Agricultural show [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

The Sydney Agricultural Show THIS great Easter Carnival pro- mises to be better than ever this   year as an Exhibition of what Mr. Coghlan would call the "Wealth and Progress of New South Wales." The added money   and new prizes in the horse sec- tion amounts to £400, including £150 for the champion blood stallion. In the cattle section the best shorthorn bull prize will be 50 guineas, while black and red polls have four new champion prizes. There is an increase of £300 in farm produce prizes, of which sum the Government pro- vides £150 for the District Agri- cultural Societies' Competition, special courts being provided for each district. Among other new features are corn-husking compe- titions, wood-chopping contests, and guessing competitions of the weight of fat bullocks. Altoge- ther 1101 classes are scheduled or 150 more than last year. The Department of Agriculture has very opportunely decided to erect a commodious pavilion for the display of their p...

Westralia and Federation. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

Westralia and Federation.   ------------     THE difficulties of 'Westralia's joining the Federation are being ridiculously magnified. Sir John Forrest says there are not any insuperable difficulties in the way, but his colony would like to have absolutely a free hand to deal as it likes with its customs for a specific period after federating. Sir John's idea as to the best way to get about this is to petition the Imperial Parliament, with the consent of the various Govern- ments of the Colonies concerned, to alter the Bill in the direction desired. But since so much trouble and expense has been incurred in order to secure the absolute will of the people on every dot and comma of the Bill, it would surely be a bad thing for the various Premiers to be allowed to meet together and alter this or that provision in the measure. Let it be admitted that it is worth while making an effort to secure the co-operation of Westralia, and with that object, i...

"Prosper Farm." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

*' Prosper Farm." We took advantage last week of accepting an invitation to visit Mr. "William Daley's " Prosper Farm," at Cornwallis. This is without doubt one of the best kept farms on the Hawkesbury, and its pre- sent condition reflects no small amount of credit on its proud pos- sessor, the genial Will. Every foot of the 30 acres is taken full advantage of ; giant crops of maize, single vine covering 80 square feet of space), cucumbers, melons (water and rock), tomatoes, sorgum, pota- toes, etc. Besides this, there is a very useful orchard adjoining the house, which is a large item in it- self when taken from a remunera- tive point of view. The maize crop is something remarkable, and the yield should be an enormous one, in many instances the stalks reach a height of 12 to 14 feet.   The melons are looking in splendid condition, and Mr. Daley in this article bids fair to repeat his last year's performance in taking the prize for same at the forthcoming Liverpool Show...

RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

RICHMOND. Mr. R. H. and Miss Ducker are at present spending a holiday at Kurrajong Heights. The vineyard at the H. A. Col- lege looks splendid at the present time, the grape crop being a very prolific one and of excellent quality. At the School of Arts on Friday afternoon last the garments made by the ladies of Richmond for the wounded soldiers at the war were exhibited. Mr. J. A. Bulkely, who was ex- pected at the H. A. College as assistant lecturer, is still at Bathurst, and there is a doubt as to His coming to the institution at all. About one of the best teams of bullocks that come into town are those belonging to Mr. T. Riley of Tennyson. The beasts are evi- dently cared for, one and all being rolling fat. Richmond are bidding well for the much coveted Union medals, and have up to the present an un- beaten record. On Saturday last they scored 221 against Wilber- force's 21, the bowling and batting of the locals being first-class. Alderman Campbell topping the poll on Saturday l...
