Concert. Thk concert in aid of the funds of thp. Church of Englandjpame off on Thursday last; in the School of Arts. Fine weather- favored the occasion, and a very large gathering of people gave their presence. The hall was very tastefully decorated with ferns, palms, and flags, the work of Mr. C. WilkinB. At eight o'olock the proceedings commenced ; and the children of the local publio sohool were the'first to treat the large assemblage to part alftging, the rendering oi wmen was excellent, ana redounds to the credit of both the soholars and Mr.'Hattcreley, the teacher. Misses Brown and McDonald cave a piano duet, ' The Maud Waltzes;' after which came the trio, ' Ye Shepherds Tell me,' by Mrs. Forster and Messrs. Slade and Lane, the effect of which brought but slight applause from the audience.

Dear Sir,— 1 see by the UBue ot the North Uoaal I Times of March 22, that Mr. Joseph Mackay, the ' cultured' and eminently liberal minded editor of that estimable rag, has oompkiuts to make of the transhipment of pasaengers at Port Macquarie. He goes so far as to venture his legal opinion ; and, with hiB customary servility of natuie— liko the Spanish brigand who apologised profusely to his victim for being obliged to cut his throat — whilst I heaping the venom of his disordered nature ou as 1 systematic and regular a steam service as tnere is I on. the coast, deprecates his being inspired by any I other motive thau that of serving the public good.

Taree. TO THE EDTTOK OF THE FORT MACQCARIE NEWS. Sir, — The Manning Times takes you to task for. amongst other thinge, expressing yourself favorable to another newspaper being established in the Manning River district. From the leaders of the Times, and the statements by the proprietor, I was under the impression that the paper was a freetrader. This appears now to be doubtful, as the Timefisnol free to greet the proposed new journal, but appears to be opposed to its establishment. Ever since the Bret meeting was held, for the purpose of forming a newspaper company, this paper has tried to write the project down. Its columns have been filled with articles culled from every source, against pro tection to native industries, and favorable to foreign trade. If the if. R. Times is a freetrader, it does not approve of free spocch, though truthful, wheq opposed to it, as instance its comments upon &oine of the remarks made by speakers at the aforesaid meeting and since.

A Startling Astronomical Discovery. TO THE EDITOR OF THE PORT MACQUARIE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 13 April 1889

A Startling Astronomical Disoovery. TO THE EUITOE OF THE FORT MAOQUARIE NEWS. Sir,— The Manning River Tinun, in its issue of the 3rd April, gravely announces the following nyrmrkable astronomical phenomenon. In describ ing iu hyperbolical terms a diploma issued by the Bankers' Iustitute of Australasia to Mr. W. T. Busby, of Taree, the writer goes on to say, ' In the circle is a beautiful fotn'ale figure seated, typical of Australasia, surrounded with the Aurora Attstralis streaming from a radiant mi.' Now, sir, that much maligned individual, the common schoolboy, will tel! you that such a tliiag is utterly impossible, the Aurora Australts, a nocturnal puenomctiuu, IB never seen in the day time, hence the absurdity of it ' streaming from the snn.' We can take this as a sample of the correctness of the utterances made by that supient journal. YOUR ASTRONOMICAL DEVIL. P.S.— I see also that the editor of the Times has discovered that ' a direct road from Wauchope ^o ' - Kempsey — which ...

Government Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 20 April 1889

Government Work. Among the latest items of Sydney news is the report of what a deputation of die un employed said to the Premier, and what he told them in reply. . Looked, at from the point of view of Sydney residents, the inter view was by ho means satisfactory, and from our own standpoint it was etill lees so. The jdea on both sides clearly was tbat 8ydney was to be the first considered, and the country the last. Mr. Sydney Burdekin, 'who intro duced the deputation, spoke on behalf of the working men of Sydney, and 'Sir Honry Parkea *hiinself took the sarao view of the matter. Finally it was promised that works sufficient to provide employment for 2000 men should be ent on foot. Thie, however, was only for the benefit of Sy/lney, and not at all for tho unemployed in the country, who, for all that appears to the contrary, ?nay starve for all the 'politicians care ; and yet it is doubtful whether the existing distress in Syduey at all approaches that in many country districts, where...

The Maize Blight. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 20 April 1889

The Maiso Blight. The knowledge that the maize blight is dying out, not only on the- Hastings River, but on all tho northern tributaries, and that very little damage has been done this season to the maize crops, must be a source of consolation to the tillers of tho Eoil. The cause of the blight has baffled the powers of men skilled in agricultural knowledge ; and VIIV uwww nui 111! UVUUb UIBnjjpntll WllIIJUl' the aid of man and without his acquaintance with the mysteries surrounding its appear ance. To arrest tho spread of the blight, or to prevent its uppenraneff, ' may not be within tho bounds of human skill, but it speaks little for tho science of the colony in agricultural matters to be unable to account for the cause of this strange disease. Varied are the opinions of our farmers upon the matter, and no doubt some of these are quite as valuable as the 'conjectures' of scientific men. Somo affirm that the drought which prevailed during the season in which it first appeared had s...
