Troops for Australasia. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Troops for Australasia. THE British army, as Prince Bismarck (the man of blood and iron) has had the goodness to intimate, is an-excellent body, but-it is also very small. Herein lieB the great objec- tion to the proposal made by Lord Laming- ton in the Upper House on June 3. , He evidently views with natural concern the probability of annexations in the Pacific by European Powers, whose friendship for us is far from a certainty, and who might threaten Australasia. But of what practical utility would the mere handful of men the mother country could afford to send, as an establish- ment, be ? Lord Lamington only asked for . a small force. The effect of granting this,, if it had any effect at all, .might possibly be a slackening of the defensive efforts of our kinsman thp.m'selvfiH. Of noiirsfl. wera the colonies in question-or any others for that matter-in serious danger, the British Gov- ernment, true to their interests and their traditions, would not be tardy with material help.

Clarence and N.C. Farmers' Association [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Clarence and N.C. Farmers'Association AT a regular monthly meeting of the Board held yesterday, the principal business was the reception of the Manager's report for the past half-year. This showed the husiness of the Company to have been very successful, exceeding the most sanguine expectations. The total earnings for the half-year were £3420 10s lOd, including £254417s Sd from commission, and £875 13s from purchases and sales account. After deducting expenses, there remains a net profit of £1195 9s 7d, which is very satisfactory considering that the paid-up capital" ia only about £3000. The turn-over for the half-year amounted to £59,277 12s 6d, and the consignments comprised 03.074 bags maize (weighing 284,33t bushels), 51,000 feet cedar and pine, 21,000 spokes, 415 bags potatoes, 326 pigs and calves, 80 bale3 luceme hay, 150 bags chaff, 50 tegs butter, 41 cases eggs, 22 coops fowls, 40 hides, and a large quantity of sun- dries.

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Echoes and Opinions. THE following paragraph : appears in one of our Metropolitan contemporaries.: " " With reference to the drainage scheme for the Western suburbs, and the proposed improvements to the entrances of the Clarence and Bichmond Rivers, we are informed that the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Publio Works are open to receive any relevant information. Persons desirous of tendering evidence are invited to send in their names to the Secretary of the Committee." It would be as'well; an respect to country works, if the Secretary wouM communicate such sugges- tions as these to the local papers, and to recognised public bodies in the districts interested. Too great publicity cannot be given to such a desire on the part of the Committee. Of course, it is next to impossible for all . persons competent "to give evidence upon the Clarence and Richmond River works, to proceed to* Sydney;; hence we hope arrangements .will be made for taking evidence from such persons in the dist...

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] SYDNEY, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Political andTSocial Letter. I LProm our Special Correspondent. J - ; ' - ; * SYDNEY, TUKSBAY. MOBBISON, the burglar who shot the constable at Pott's Point, has been sentenced to de*tà for his crime, and there is hardly a doubt .that the sentence .. will be carried into effect. As your readers have been informed through your columns, the jury recommended him. to mercy ; but CHIEF JUSTICE DABLBY, whilst promising to send the recommendation to the proper quarter, declared that he would not support it. . The jury made the Recommendation because they were of the opinion that the prisoner did not mean to kill the constable ; but in view of the fact that Morrison used the pistol on the constable., at plose quartets, I cannot for the life of me see how the jury could have arrived at that opinion. Moreover, the fact that he had a loaded revolver when he visited the Point on his burglarious enterprise, proves that he intended to do mischief therewith. He took life, and ? now - he must pay th...

The Sydney Press and Our Bar. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Sydney Press «nd Our Bar. " OWING to the Clarence River bar being for the past few days too dangerous for the steamers to cross, the mails for the Clarence and Richmond River districts have been somewhat irregular in transit." Thus opens a paragraph in a Sydney paper upon the recent interruption in mail communication, consequent upon the late heavy rainfall and floods. Now, we object to that particular way of putting'the matter. In the first place, what in the name-of honesty could the state ofithe bar have had todo with the irregularity in transit of the overland mail from Sydney via Glen Innes, or from Graf toa by the same route 1 That the bar was not responsible for that particular irregularity is proved in the paragraph itself when the cause bf delay in transit between Grafton and Glen Innes is described. Then why open with ascrib ling all the trouble tc the poor bar?' It may be remarked that the whole paragraph is composed with a peculiar- twist, such as the implication tha...

The Foot. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Foot. PEOHESSOB ANDEESOK STTJAET has recently delivered an instructive lecture in connection with the Ladies' Sanitary Association on the ''Human foot." The Professor commenced by explaining the nature of the bones of the foot. 3?irst of all there was the bone at the heel, then 5 bones forming the foot, and then the 14 bones of the toes. There were two joints in the big toe, and three joints in each of the other four toes, thus forming in all 14 bones. The bones of the foot corres- ponded to those of the hand. The difference was not so much an anatomical one as one of proportion. We stand upon a kind of tripod, one corner of which is at the heel, another at the ball of the big toe, and the third at the ball of the little toe. The foot is not on three equal points. The inner side is much stronger than the outer side of the foot. The great toe does the most part of the work. The outside of the foot helps to keep it steady. The toes are not much good in our days. In the time of pri...

The crops do not seem to haye suffered much from the effects, and as far as I can hear the oysters in the Lakes at the back of Palmer's Island nre doing well, so that very little, if any, fresh water could, have got into the Lakes. ? Skating.-A meeting of the' Maclean Skating Club was held- here on .Wednesday. Mri Jamison, in a very amusing- speech, accepted the position of president '; after which some! of ; the; rules were revised and others added, the most important of which was, " that all subscriptions were to be paid in advance before a member was allowed to skate."

Tenterfield. MONDAY. SESSIONS AND DISTRICT COURT.-We were pleased to see Judge Hurray on the Bench on Saturday ; for that gentleman is highly respected here, and is looked upon as one of the most painstaking judges in the colony. There was" only one case at the Quarter Sessions, that of Henry Sands, who pleaded guilty to a charge of false pretences. He was sen- tenced to 10 months. There was a mining case before the District Court, which is of some interest to your readers, the parties being well known in your district. It was the case of Harvey Patterson v. the Strauss Gold-mining Company. In which plaintiff claimed £160 for alleged breach of con- tract and : loss sustained in .the defendants not allowing him to clean the tables after crushing, as per agreement.

Political and Social Letter. [WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE EXAMINER.] SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Political and Social Letter. [WRITTEN SPECIALLY POE THE EXAMINEE.] SYDNEY. SATURDAY. Ma. SCHET, M.P., baa instructed his solicitors (Mesara. Slattery and Heydon) to issue a writ against the proprietors of the Evening Neies for alleged libels against him, which were published in the leading columns of the paper during the recent Redfern election. The damages claimed are £2000. The articles complained of were very rough, and it was expected by some people that Mr. Schey wonld take more than ordinary notice of them. The Messrs. BENNETT will probably defend their action, and if they do the case will excite a great deal of interest. I doubt, however, whether it is worth while for a public man to take serious notice of what a newspaper says about him during a general election, for after all public men are judged by the people in their own way. If they are straight-going, not all the abuse in the world can make the electors believe they are crooked. If on the other hand, they are obvious a...

Macleay River. MONDAY, JULY 22ND. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Macleay River. , .' MONDÂT, JULY 22ND: SHIPPING.-The Macleay did not escape scathless doting the recent storm. The steamer Queen of the South, in attempting to take the bar inwards with a tremendous sea breaking across it, was struck on her side laying her over, pitching passen- gers from their births, and shifting the cargo. She was forced out of the channel, and after bumping several times on the sand remained fast, the sea occasionally breaking over her. Anchors failed to release her, and it was not till 30 hours after that the vessel was got safely into calm water, appar- ently none the worse for the mishap. Among the passengers was the Rev. Mr. Doyle, who was returning from the sittings of the R. C. Synod in' Grafton. DROWNED.-A man named Edward G-. C. Bell, ship's carpenter," was drowned off the Kempsey punt recently. He went on to the flap of the punt, evidently with the intention of assisting to put her across, and by Borne means accidently fell into the water. Though : dark...

I - MES.

It is notorious that of late years the tone of conversation not only between men and women of the " smart " coteries, but between women when talking amongst themselves, has j been marked by ideas and expressions which were brought into vogue in Paris by the Princess Metter- nich. Many fashionable American ladies have adopted this habit-as soon as they found it recog I nised by the class in which they aspired to move. Hrs. Chamberlain has set herself distinctly against this laxity of tone, and it is reported of her that only a few days ago, finding the conversation of the ladies with whom she was having tea not to her liking, she suddenly rose, and without any word of explanation, left the room, to the aston- ishment of her hostess, who was a well-known lady of title.
