Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 22 July 1882
Richmond. THE lovlíest village is, if anything, livelier, than the sister town, which is not particularly lovely in anything. As we perambulate round, we see something doing in the way ot street improvement, which we do not see in the royally named borough. 5Tes, we see the gigantic efforts of a Works Committee to make water run up hill, and th« conclusion we ar- rive at is that the engineer who bosses the crowd must be Priceless to the Borough. The work in question is about the most comical bit of drainage ingenuity we have ever seen ; in fact, fifty or sixty yards of ditch making is being done that is absolutely unnecessary, and a corresponding length of pipes are being buried where not required. What with the money that has been p dd to surveyors ior showing the way to do things, and the money that has been fooled away in trying how not to do it, the ratepayers of Richmond have cause to wish for an Arabi Bey, or some other enterprising individual, to commence a general financial ...

SPARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 22 July 1882
SPARKS. The "Australian Snortsman " has changed its coat-and its editor ; the latter, un mistakeably so. The former guiding star was evidently too mild for our fast, go ahead, colonials ; he was, I'm afraid, an old countrie Sport, and didn't blow the colonial trumpet enough. His successor makes amends for his deficiency, however, if we may judge from such par* as these :-" What has become o the English batting skill?" " Oar boys std astonish the English teams!" "Eleven agtinst eleven of anybody now means a one innings win for the Australians." In answer to the first query it might be said " It may still be found at Marylebone or Cambridge," but then, what's the uss, when the ' boys* don't wait to see it ont when they are collared. [ At Forbes they are going to build a tower one "hundred feet high, and thereon a reservoir to hold 70,000 gallons of water. Yet there are' paople who say this cannot be done at Windsor. The Templars hare been blowing a h t about Hanlan's being a teetotale...
THE Hawkersbury Chronicle. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 22, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 22 July 1882
THE Mflttikesintrtf Cjirntúrlt AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 22, 1882. IT was on!y to be expected that in the event of water being brought into the town from a distance, both river and creek, would bc con- verted into sewers. This is what ninny must have thought when they altered their views and. wdked boldly over to the " Govern- ment Scheme " arrangement ; and others, who have not gone over, have seen just as clearly, what it would all come to. The argument ia this : " With a good supply of pure water coming from a distance there can be no further objection to our using both rive.-and cr e; to run our sewage into; and industries that have grown up in our midst may remain undisturbed, and their proprie- tors masters of the position." AU this has been well considered, no doubt, by different sections of our people-those who claim to be sanitaiians, and those who claim to be nothing in particular beyond whA pays them best. They saw that if a local water supply were inaugurated...
PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 22 July 1882
PIN'S. Cum grano salis. ' A Southern paper says :-" This is how the British manufacturer is cutting his own throat. In a piece of calico lately examined, the total weight was 6£ lbs. Of this, was ; " size," that is, flour starch rubbed in to fill up the cracks between the threads. Ia other words, you buy and pay for 6¿ lbs. oî calico ; you sew it into garments ; you nash the garments, and if vou then weigh them, you find you hare only 3 lbs. of cotton cloth left; the 3\ of size has vanished into the suds." Mrs. Brassey writes on the same, thusly : " This afternoon as we were steaming up towards Suez, 1 had a chat with Mahomet, on« of our Indian firemen, who was fringing a piece of muslin for a turban. I asked him if it was English. " No, Missey ; no Eng- lish-Switzerland i English no good; all gum and sticky stuff; make fingers dirty ; all wash out ; leave nothing." In the South Sea and Sandwich Islands, and in the Malay Peninsula, the native's make the same complaints as to the Man...
FARM[?]AND GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 22 July 1882
FARMIAND GARDEN. RUST PROOF WHEAT.-We have received a communication, from Mr. J&rv.ea inglis, ¡«te ¡ Executive Commissioner for India, acquanting us that he has received a communication from tlie Department of Agriculture and Commerce of the North Western Provinces of india, relative to a supply of rus*, proof wheat. It appears this kind of wheat is an early ripening kind ; it has sustained its reputation under frequent experiments, in various parts of the world, where conducted with fair conditions, and Mr. Inglis ii very sanguine that it will also sus- tain its reputation here, and prove a great boon to the farmers in many districts, where milis are silent, and wheat culture discon- tinued-which it undoubtedly would here, by bringing back the old wheat culture to our district, instead of having lind laid down, entirely with maize. The Director writes thus:-" The seed is from wheat which baa been grown under government supervision for three years, an 1 has been uniformly fr...

THE SCAVENGER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 29 July 1882
THE SCAVENGER. " Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.'* The Court wore an animated appearance, and showed that it was fit for something ^be- sides registering dogs. (See Richmond Scribe No -untold.) Alderman Kelly appeared 1 rather careworn, as if overtrained ; his luxu- riant locks were parted with great precision ; on the whole he was displayed to great ad- vantage in the witness-box, in which he pre- sents a rauc1. better fiont than in the ether box. Among the visitors of note, Billy Sly, the Doctor, Joe and Company, Sam Woods, and His Majesty, held prominent positions. The sensation was great as the defendant ap p3ared humming " Bob up serenely,' which was considered very suitable for the occasion; the sensation, however, was still greater among certain notables when the Bench gave its decision, The defeat was terrible chagrin to the Joe company, one of whom was heard to deliver to himself on the subject, thusly " Well I'm blowed, if thataint plummy now ; we aint bosses of ...
