RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

RICHMOND. Bain is badly wanted here. The «om crops will be very poor if we do not soon get a change of weather. The farms on the lowlands at the present time look splendid,, despite the fact that rain is badly wanted in other parts of the dis trict. Mr. Charley Baldwin got a win at Rosehill races on Saturday last with Mangalese. This will com pensate Charley for the bad luck he has experienced lately. The new building being erected at the H.A. College, will when completed, be a handsome struc ture. It will be used for storeroom, stewards room, and also for an ex perimental room for the electrician. The Continental held in the grounds of Toxana, on Wednesday week last, proved very successful. A first-class programme was given, and the Rev. Father O'Brien is to be complimented on the success of the function. The troopship Southern Cross, with Warrant-officer Sullivan and lieutenant Holborow on board, ar rived at Cape Town on Saturday last. The contingent will just be about in time for...

The Randwick Asylum. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

The Randwick Asylum. It will be remembered that the pre vious Government had almost deci ¡ed to erect a penitentiary of some sort at Haudwick, mach against the will of the residents of the horsey suburbs, but when Mr. See came into ¡tower be immediately announced that the building would rot be erected on the &itc mentioned. Now Mr. See is a resi d-nt of Randwick si that he, very natural ly, felt i ai ber strongly on the question of <j<jQi'jralieing asuomb, where the air it eo pure and the pipulance so inuoceut (except on race days) No one woull ex pect Mr. See to do other than he did, but his action servis to illustrate the occa s on where a mau, put ia great power ike that, owing to an unconscious bias might ii;ake a, bad deal on the part of the public. Randwick might be a t ideal locality for a penitentiary, but Mr. sec cannot realise the fact.

Boating Fatalities. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

Boating Fatalities. SCARCELY a holiday passes dur ing the boating season without some more or less shocking acci dent occurring in Sydney Harbor, entailing loss of life. The report of the drowning of two people last Sunday, and the narrow escape of several others, empha sises the seriousness af the mat ter, and raises the question I whether it is not right that soma stringent regulations should be enforced to minimise the danger as much as possible. The news paper reports, with perhaps well meaning objects, invariably stjate that it waa an unavoidable acci dent, and that Mr. So-and-So, who was in charge of the boat', is an experienced yachtsman ; .but [ nevertheless, it seems bot reason able that some precautions should be taken which would hardly í occur to a landsman ; no life belts are carried, no floating articles ' which capsized people could cling; to, nothing, in short, seems td be done to prepare for accidents. But that some stringent regula tions should be enforced is surel...

My Little Brown-eyed Lassie. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

My Little Browq-eyed lassie. Br DOBBIE MCCAMMON. THE house was old and rambling and picturesque, such a house as an artist would delight in, though. the notice of all wondering wielders of the brush. It was built on a hill, with hills all round it, stretching far away, and seeming to blend their blue ness with the deep blue of the sky, Behind it in a little hollow, a slowly running creek, with grace ful shady willows along its banks, trickled by in front and around the linea of dark sombre gum treea Far away in the east the sun was beginning to show himself over the i the top of tbe tree-crowned hills, j and over everything rested " the ' solemn hush of nature newly-born." The bustle and stir of the farm yard waB just beginning, and the lowing of cattle, and the grunting . of pigs, in some mysterious way, blended harmoniously with the place, and beauty cf the scene. Through a little white gate from the large bare wonderfully clean kitchen, a girl tall and beautiful, came with her ap...

THE DISCOVERY OF THE HAWKESBURY. CONTRIBUTED BY THE HON. WM. WALKER, M.L.C. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

THE DISCOVERY OF THE HAWKESBURY. CONTRIBUTED BY THE HON. WM. WALKER, M.L.C. (Continued.) "I thought from this circum stance that they had certainly seen us before either at Botany Bay, Port Jackson, or Broken Bay. They received a hatchet, and also a wild duck which had been just before shot from the boat, and in return they threw us a small coil of line made of the hair of some animal, and offered a spear which was refused. " Here the banks of the river are low and are covered with what we call pine trees (swamp oak) of this country. [This is about Man grove.] The natives appear to live chiefly on the roots which they dig from the ground, for the low banks appear to have been ploughed up as if a vast herd of swine had been living on them. We put ashore and examined the places which had been dug, and found the wild yam. in consider able quantities, but, in » general very small, not larger than a wal nut,, and they appear to be in greatest plenty on the bank of the river ; a little wa...

Yarramundi, Past and Present. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

Yarramundi, Past and Present. [Br BBTESON.] More than once I hare been asked to write something regarding Yarramundi, and have always shrunk from doing so, but having, in one of those unguarded moments, consented, I must needs look back over the sea of time, and jot down some memories of the long distant past. I would like it to be understood that there is no moss-haired antiquity about me although the subject of tnis article is gathered from facts, and also my long association with the district and its in habitants. Beaders are taken back to the <agood times" of the Hawkesbury, when many of our Yarramundi friends were in their teens, and who have watch ed thc great changes wrought by Father Time, and reflecting on what was then, and what is now. We hear of historical villages in the colony, and their boasted long list of old natives, and quietly smile to think that our little village is never mentionedamong8tth9m,nçtwitbptanding the fact that to-day we have some of the o...

FROM OUR EXCHANGES. As Others See Us. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

As Others See Us. We wonder whether our contem porary will take the trouble of publishing the following par which is taken, from the Western Poet (Mudgee) of fhe 15th inst., and fromtiie pen of "Candour." &t all events, we will give our readers an opportunity of knowing how "others see us." The new-born editor would do well to take Can dour's advice : " The 1 Windsor Gazette' considers roe ' silly ' because I recently took exception to a whole rigmarole of pithless and pointless drivel uttered by the member for Rylstone during the debate upon the Military Estimates. If the editor of the 'W.G.' will hunt up ' Hansard,' and wade through Mr. Fitzpatrick's inane twaddle, he will find that on this occasion it is he and not me who is 'silly.' He will dis cover that Mr. F.'s defamatory remarks applied to Windsor, Bichmond, and Mudgee officers quite as much as they did to the officers of the head-quarters' staff, to the rank-and-file of the Defence Force more than to its officers, a...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the ADVOCATE. DEAR SIR,-Kindly allow me space in your paper to give the Wilberforce ladies and gentlemen the facts of an article that appear ed in the Hawkesbury ADVOCATE on the 9th inst. Your Wilber force correspondent asked, who were the three young gents who ! loát their saddles whilst visiting their young ladies last week., AB it happened, the saddles were not lost at all, they were simply re moved from the horses and placed - * on the ground-r-not fifty miles, or even one mile distant from the horses ; at any rate, they were not lost. As I was one of the party I cari speak with authority,, re the young ladies also. We were not visiting them as stated,, but just spending the evening with old friends.

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

SACKVILLE. (From our own correspondent.) We are pleased to note the child- ren attending our local school do not loiter on the road now as they did a few months back. The melon growers on the river haye done fairly well with their crops this year, the long stretch of hot weather being the means of keeping the prices up. Sickness is very prevalent around   here at present. Amongst the suf- ferers are Mrs. John Turnbull and Miss Sarah Everingham. We     hope to see them about again soon. A Harvest Festival was held at the Wesleyan Church on Sunday night, when the church was beauti- fully decorated with fruit, veget- ables and other farm produce. The Rev. J. Tarn conducted the service. The maize crops along here look well considering the trying wea- ther since Xmas. Most of the maize is beginning to ripen, and should the floods keep away the farmers will smile again. The vintage at Tizzana starts next week, when about 40 hands will be employed in ...

ON THE RIVER. A Chnitmas Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 23 February 1900

ON THE RIVER. A Christmas Holiday. BY PAUL TWYFORD. Mr. Kemp has another property   tip the Oblo, where he resided in the old days before he became famous ; and closely is the " Long Beach " — straight as a dart for a mile-and-a-half-upon which he trained both himself and subs- quent champions. It is a nice resi- ence, and well situated in the centre of an orange orchard, and adjoining the properties of Messrs. W. and James Metherell, both of whom were known to me as traders up to Windsor, before sand-banks and official apathy and neglect ruined Windsor Reach. "Livingstone" is Mr. William Jones' fine property at what is known as " Stupid Point "— which requires explanation. It is a large point, having a frontage of nearly a mile to the river. Thus, the stranger may leave his boat at the lower landing, interview the pro- prietor, proceed on his way, land at the upper wharf, and again meet Mr. Jones at his residence. In which case this is what happens : Stranger ; " Hello...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Look out for the Princess Dra- matic Company who are visiting Windsor on Thursday and Friday next. Mr. J. Simpson, of Freeman's Beach, intends giving a lantern entertainment at the Lower Port- land Public School on March 17th, in aid of the prize fund. A daring robbery took place on the Peninsula on Thursday last, when a Chinaman engaged in market-gardening in that part, was robbed of several articles of clothing. Some monster melons have been on view in Mr. J. Hulls' window during the week, the largest weighing over 50lbs. Mr. Hull intends having a melon eat- ing competition shortly, and will engage one of the local halls for the purpose, the proceeds to be devoted to the hospital. The Princess Dramatic Com- pany intend producing the up-to- date military drama, "Soldiers of the Queen," on Thursday even- ing next at the School of Arts. As the proceeds are to be devoted to the institute, residents should not miss the opportunity of rol- ling up. Referring to the re...
