Windsor Wesleyan Church. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

Windsor Wesleyan Church. A most interesting lecture was given in the Windsor Wesleyan Church, on Monday night last by Captain Twine, who was intro- duced to the meeting by the Rev. A. G. Swift, the latter gentleman occupying the chair during the evening. The lecturer traversed over his adventures and travels since the year 1647, and was lis- tened to by a most attentive audi- ence. In 1847 he took a trip in the ship John Williams from Lon- don, round the Society Islands, and touched on the Cape of Good Hope and Tasmania. He explained the discovery of Raratonga Island by Mr. John Williams, and the great improvement made during the first seven years after the dis- covery by the natives. A school house and also a church were built, the congregation of the latter being 2000. williams built a schooner of 70 or 80 tons with the assistance of the natives, in four months, the first trip of which was made to Itiatucky Island, and the second trip from Raratonga Islands, a dis- tance of 800 mi...

H. D. A, ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 February 1900

H. D. A. ASSOCIATION A special meeting of members of H. D. A. Association was held at Show Ground on Tuesday afternoon when about 40 members were present. Mr. J. D. Single, President, occupied   the chair. The Secretary (Mr. C. S. Guest), said that the meeting had been called in ac- cordance with a requisition signed by Messrs. Malcolm Greenwell, Bernard Conlan, John T. Gosper, James W. Far- low and Frederick Nicholls, for the pur- pose of reconsidering a resolution passed at a precious meeting, re alteration of dates for the Show. Mr. Malcolm Greenwell said he had been round the district among the farmers, and found that the alteration of the days for the Show namely, Tues-   day, Wednesday and Thursday were most unsuitable, as exhibitors were unable to get their exhibits fixed up in the one day, and it was impossible for them to fix their exhibits on the Show Ground with- out breaking into two weeks, which they could not afford to do. On account of the ha...

SACKVILLE. {From our own correspondent.)' The bee-farmers here are be ginning to smile, as there is a good flow of honey just now,,and ^ahoold we get rain within a week or so, it win be even more plenti ful than at present. ' The hot weather here is ripen ing the grapes on Tizzana very fast, and preparations for the vintage are being pushed ahead in all departments. A cooper from Sydney has arrived to put new casks together. Mr. Thomas Mitchell has been doing well with his orchard this year. He is a real live orchardist and employs men here to pull and pack his fruit whilst he sells it. in Sydney himself; thus doing away with the middleman. Another of our orchardists who has made fruit-growing a success is the Rev H. Woodhouse, of Portland Farm, who has obtained Tery high prices for his prize im ported plums, peaches, etc. The farmers are grumbling, as «suai, about the low prices that come back from Sydney for their produce.- It will be ever thus until the middle man is removed ; an...

WEDDING BELLS. On Wednesday last, at St. Mat thew's Church of England, the Rev. A. G. Fielding bound in the happy bonds of wedlock Mr. Thos. Jas. Clarke to Miss Rachael Farrell, fourth daughter of Mr. Wm. Farrell, of the Vineyards. The bride looked very pretty in a blue cashmere dress trimmed with blue silk. An elder sister of the bride acted as bridesmaid, and was dressed in a becoming cos tume of buttercup. After the ceremony was completed the party drove to the home of the bride's parents, where an abund ance of good things were taste fully laid out, and it is needless to say that full justice was done thereto. A photo of the bridal f>arty was taken as they were èaving the church.

From all parts of the country come re ports of the formation of volunteer . corps ; and it is reported that the Government really have not arms to provide all the volunteer«. This may be true enough, but ott the strength of the truth it would not be advisable for the Boers, or any other hostile creature, to , in* vade our land, for although the Government as a whole are short of rifles, the people individually are fairly well supplied. Every effort should be made, however, to secure; a sufficient supply from abroad. In connection with, volunteering it surely is absurd to make ¡any arbitrary restrictions as to the height of a would-be soldier, the width of his chest and the length of his arms isa much more important considera tion. In the good old days of battle axes, height and brute strength had a ...

Lowe's hall on Thurs day night last. Mr. J J. Herpe, J.P. occupied the ciiair. The mat ter of the road round the river to Wiseman's Ferry was discussed.

COLO. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

COLO * (From our own Correspondent.) We hear, that Mr. Tom Jones and hisson intend going untoward the top end of Colo prospecting in a few days. They both seem very confident, of striking gold. We wish them every success. The orchards, crops, &c, have "been very much benefitted by the late rains. A great deal more rain would be very acceptable just now, as what we had a few days ago was altogether insufficient for the orchards and grazing lands, and also for some of the maize crops, Melons are still being sent away from Oolo in large quantifiés. Messrs. Mick and Charlie Wells have sent some large consignments away lately, which are about the best melons we have seen this season. Mr. James Manning has so far sent about 500 dozen, and he expects to continue sending for a good while yet. Messrs. Harry Jones, Luther Everingham and Bill Woodbury have also consigned flome large quantities lately. The death took place on the 7th i inst, of the oldest Colo resident, in the person of...

Surplus Ministers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

Surplus Ministers. MR. CARRUTHERS, in the conree of a reply to a stricture, uninten tionally emphasised a fact which it is worth while makings à note of. Mr. Lyne had accused Mr. Carruthers of doing, or" omitting to do, something (it does not mat ter a bit which). Mr. Carruthers in reply pointed out that "The Under-secretary called my atten tion to the fact that such advances would be illegal. ... If I made the advances the Auditor-^General would be certain to refuse his warrants or the expenditure. I was therefore advised to refuse to make the advance. What' I did was entirely on the advice of the non-political officer of the Treas ury. The fact emphasised here is that a Minister was paid at the rate bf £2000 a year to take the advice of his subordinate, the permanent Undersecretary ; it reminds us that some Ministers have achieved successes in .certain Departments because they had .^rë^noughloiake^ eyevtfoccasion of thé .experts in those Departments, and it prompts the query : Sin...

In Favor of Boers. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

' ' 1 I In Favor of Boers, ÁLTHOüGH very few Australians have the hardihood now to say that they want the Boers to win, it is perfectly right to hope that the outcome of the war will be such as to be the best thing pos sible for the Dutchmen. AU Australians, who have experienced the blessings of self-government, and the advantage of British su premacy, know that the very best thing that could possibly happen to the Boers is that they should come under the protection of the most powerful nation in the world. Although after the war is over they will probably be disarmed^ it is highly probable that in other respects they will be put on a level with their brother Dutchman in Cape Colony. It would cer tainly be a mistake to deal harshly with them, rather should the dominant Power make their lot better than ever it was before.

German Animosity. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

German Animosity. IN a recent letter to the Sydney press Mr. 0. C. Beate gives a long and interesting extract from a leading German newspaper which sets forth what it calls the reasons that their country should distrust England. The arguments are of course terribly biassed against the great British Empire, but they overlook one fact that should make up for all the sins of Eng land's committing. Wherever the English flag floats the German colonist is as welcome as the Britisher, the German merchant is given equal rights with the British merchant; his life and property is protected, his religion is respected, his freedom absolute. When Britain opens up a tract of laud in Africa, China, or else where it is a distinct gain to all the world. Can these things be said of Germany? She owns a lot of territory in various parts of the world, but her citizens, aa frugal, as industrious, and as in telligent as any people in the world, pfcefer to emigrate to. British territory.
