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

Agricultural Produotioa. An official table published in tho Govern ment Gazette a short time since, with regard^ to tho comparative agricultural production of the lost two years ending 31st March, and particulars of which were given iu our last issue, opens up a large and interesting field for serious thought When it is an axiom thnt nirrinilfurn in tlm honlrli/ina *\t wealth, one cannot help being struck, in glancing over this table, with the groat decrease iu the area of land under cultivation in the year 1889, compared with that of 1888 ; and, consequently, the diminished quantity of agricultural productions. Whilst the population for the latter year has increased considerably, no less than 50,000 acres of agricultural land have been abau donod by our farming population. For one year this is something astonishing ; and one would naturally have thought that with the increase of population the tillage of the soil would have bean extended. But quite the reverse is tho case, which cl...

The Seven-times-married Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 April 1889

Tho Sevoa-timss-mamei Woman. TflEOE are people iu tlie world (observes a London paper) who find one matrimonial experiment enough, and there are others who are apparently never tired of repeating it. To this class evidently belongs an American matron answering to the name of Mrs. Nancy Clark Marshall Winkle Smith Fiisbee M'Gregor Bawliiis. The lady, a rather masculine woman — so the American papers iloscril-e iier — has been married seven times, each of the above names representing a departed husband save the lost, which is born by her seventh spouse, to whom she has just been wedded. The much -mar- ried lady belongs to San Francisco, and the hazards of life have i enabled her to gratify her taste for marital change without retorting to divorce, every one of her liusltands being dead before hisplaoe was taken by another. One lost his life in a snowstorm ; another was haoked to pieces by tho Indians ; a third met witti his death whilst on a hunting expe dition ; one died a natural de...

How Not to Do It. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 April 1889

How Hot to Do Zt. The eternal political squabble for office goes on without ceasing, and its progress \b marked l-y constant repetitions of promises of reform, which are either left unfulfilled or are fulfilled in such a way as to -leave the people who want thorn as badly, if not worse on, man cney were ueiorn. we are inces santly lectured, by those who profess to be our guides, on nur habit of bogging for help in the shn.pt- of public works, but they fail to indicate a roiuedy They tell us we should not send ' road and bridge men' into Parliament ; but uot one of thorn can tell us how else we are to get our roads mended and our bridges built. They certainly say we should ' put our own shoulders to the whool,' but they forget that however vigor ously we may oxort our owu individual strength, the means of .meeting the otherwise necessary expenditure will still be wanting. We can do nothing without money, and the Government is the only organisation in the colony capable of raising the...

Af£er 'expressing his opinion of Cairns and its various surroundings in a manner the reverse of favorable, he informed his hearers that, from his personal knowledge, Her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen nnd the Royal family generally were not n't to be recced into respectable society. In fact, ho was^ro parcd to give them the cut direct whenever lie met them. He next laid down tho law on religious matters. Q'he Pope, priests, &c, were consured very severely indeed. The Church of England especially, as it was run in Cairns, was quite as bad as the Roman Catholic body. Presbyterians were gently stigmatised as an infernal lot of hypocrites.

To still the throbbing pulte of hopeless woo. ; Cut, once cmtaritcd on that lone, perilous way. When love and friendship droop, aud then decay, Withered by blighting windt and unrewarded toil, Love's close roots perished in nngenial soil — And than alone when dim night hovers round. No friendly voice to pierce the gloom profound, Thy solitary spirit brooding cold, aud far, As clear, yet distant, as the morning star— Thy heart dose-barred against love's magic wiles And tender witcheries of tears and smiles Stand on t...
