A Woman Dressed in Diamonds. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 April 1889

A Woman Crossed in Diamonds. Says an American paper : — An attempt might a; well be' made to paint sunbeams as to try to describe the magnificence of Mrs. Astor'8 robe. It was of royal purple velvet of the very finost quality. Around the mag nificent court train, down the sides, and on t*liu linriiiv* u'tirn nct-Ai*a flic imfnt*al ci.ru worked in sol(6 gold bullion, round which was twined a vine of 1 raves and buds.. .A boquet of th'6e flowers appeared in gold upon the bodice, which was a marvellous piece of embroidery. Indeed, every stitch through out the whole costume was the very perfec tion of needlework. The petticoat of white satin showed through the most wonderful drapery, composed of network woven of pearls thickly studded with tiny gold discs. About the nock was a high ruff made entirely of pearls and gold beads woven on fine wire. The cortege was cut low, and from the top to the point of the stomacher was u triangle made of diamonds, each one nearly halfau inch in diameter...

The "Kicker" sued for Libel. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 April 1889

Tlie 'Zicber' euod for Libel. We take the following from the last issue of tho Arizona Kicker : 'Sued for Eibei.. — Our genial sheriff, Bill Hayes, dropped in on us the other day to subscribe for a copy of the Kicbir to send to a friend in Vermont, and to speak words of cheer and encouragement in regard to our served papers on us in libel suits as folUfcs : The Widow Hookins ... 10,000 dole. JaokHines ? 20,000 dols* Col. Johnson ? 10,000 dols. Mrs. Smithcrs ? 15,000 dols. Scattering ? 75,000 dols. ' All the above suits were the result of a few truthful paragraphs in a recent issue, and while not exactly expected, are not ut. wel- come. We don't think a newspaper amounts to shucks until it has half-a-dozen libel suits on the docket, and we don't believe that any editor will get up and hump himself until he realises that he has got to raise 200,000 dollars in cash inside of a year.

Rawdon Island. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 April 1889

Sawdoa Island. (mOM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Ok 'Sunday' lafct- the' Rev. 'J. Parker, Wes leyati', preached for the first time here, to a full' house. His sermon, which was ap propriate to rlie day, being Easter Sunday, Was listened to with more th/in ordinarv interest.' From the opiuions expressed by those who have had tbe privilege of hearing Mr. Parker, there is reason to hope that his ministration throughout the district will bo appreciative and productive of abiding good. On every' hand are to be heard expressions of sympathy and regret in connection with the double shipwrecks that occurred last week so near our own district. In connec tion with that of the Maggie Taylor, associ ated as it was with loss of life, the most heartfelt sympathy is entertained for those thus suddenly and sadly bereaved. We also sincerely regret the soverc loss and incoveni ehce the firm of Messrs. See & Co. .must inevitably suffer by the loss of the Rosedale, occurring, as it does, at such a busy ...

Benefits of Drought. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 April 1889

Benefits of Drought. TilK agricultural or pastoralist may be excused for grumbling at a season of drought, for it means pecuniary loss, but it is as well to remember that such periods are part and parcel of the economy of Nature. Change is the law of the Universe ; the tide ebbs and flows, dav succeeds nii'ht. the storm the calm, aud cycles of dry years must alternate cycles of wet years. If by praying we could always have favourable seasons we mif,'bt do infinite harm. Insect pests might thereby increase to such an extent as to master man's efforts to live; instead of sweet grasses, rank herbage and noxious weeds would doubtless assert themselves to tho detriment of all useful plants ; fungoid growths (such, for instance, as rust on wheat} would be paramount, and by excessive rain the very soil might become sour and sodden. We know not all the good these periods of drought may do, but common observation teaches us that tho great heat striking upon the mountain rocks and even the ve...

About Wauchops. TO TnE EDITOR OF THE POBT MACQOAItlE NEWS. Sir, — Referring to an article in your issue of the 20tu inet., entitled 'A Visit to Wauchope,' and iuBcrted, as you state in an editorial cnmuieut, ' iu order to give ycur readers some idea of uiiat a com parative stranger thinks of the locality,' allow me to state that the person who wrote the article, from tbe knowledge lie shows of the people of Wauuliope unit their names, aud from the geuoral tone of the article, could not have been a stranger. It is more like the writing of a. resident of Port Maoquaric, influenced by Ike jealousy existing between the towns, or of some one with a personal interest, or influenced by some uersaual iU-foding. He docs not even attempt a description of the town or district, or of the scenery and surrounding country, and lie never mentions the effect of its geographi cal position or its resources.. If hi; knew the place be ought, in fairness, to have stated what they were ; if lie did not ku...

Laurieton. (FROM OUR OOBBESFONDENT.) There is nothing fresh iu connection with the wreck of the Maggie Taylor, except that the portions hanging together arc now landed high and dry on the beach.
