The Wreck of the Maggie Taylor. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 4 May 1889

The Wreck of tta Maggie Taylor. Refeurinci to the above wreck, and par ticularly to the heroism of Captain McLeman, the Echo says : — ' Let me go, and save the boy !' Only seven monosyllables, and yet comprising a whole epic of heroism and devo tion.. Cynical critics aro nevor weary of tel ln-fT lia Ttrtint*. n lmrrun vitlnrat* (inrmlacc fliinnr this humanity of ours is ; that the age of chivalry is gone, and that heroism is a dead and buried thing in the world. And yet every now and then, iu seasons of trial aud peril, bonie noble deed is enacted in an unex pected quarter whose lustre illuminates our common luinanity and makes us proud to be part and parcel of it. If at any time we may expect human nature to show us what it is in reality, stripped of the trappings of civilisa tion and tho encrustations of custom, it is when sudden death is imminent. Then the man displays himself as he is, either selfishly apprehensive for his own safety, or generously solicitous for that of others....

' liOoSl aadvCreaeral ^etre. . Komam Catholic. — Since the advent of FathBr Walsh, as resident priest in Port Macquarie and the . HasHngs district, the Roaiau Catholic body hare seen the necessity of providing him with a residence, and also of enlarging aui improving their place of worship.'1 Although the flock over which Father Walsh has charge ;ig pomparatively small, unanimity prevails, and both pastor and people have so worked together that some time since the tender of Mr. F. Craven was accepted for improvements to the chapel. An addition of 15 ieet has been put on to the main building, together with a cbancel and a vestry. New' Beats have also beon provided, and tho church is now very comfortable aud convenient, the only thing needed being a coat of paint: ' Mr. B. Craven was the successful tenderer for the erection of the presbytery, which is to be built of brick, and will be completed by the end of July. The dimensions of the main building are 32 feftt by 27 feet, with 10 fr...

? Tlie Hastings Sim District. WAUCHOPE. ? ? ?? Leaving Port Macquarie by the iand road to Wauchope, a distance of some twelve or thirteen miles, I find that the road leads through an undulat ing and sparsely populated country. Here and there the country is occupied by settlers ; aud email clearings have been made. But these patches are few and far between ; the country for the most nnrt beinffetill iinocaunied. nniisidem.liln ni-Ann nf laud are in private bands ; but very few improve ments are visible. In some instances the country is more densely timbered than it was thirty years ago ; young growths of forest trees, frequently oaks and wattles, having sprung up and choked out the native grasses. The hill, or ridge land, as it is termed, is greatly underrated by the inhabitants of the district, and while there are some unmistakably poor soils, with cold clay subsoils, there are immense areas of very valuable hind, composed of red volcanio soil and vegetable hams, on .both the hillsi...

Pig Farming. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 11 May 1889

Pigj Farming. Most of the farmers ou tlie Hastings Rivor will, we have no doubt, ncknow ledgo that there is' money to be made out of pig breeding ; whilst many others in our midst will admit that they have doac well by pig dealing. But, although this is the cast;, up to the present time none of the sottlers. on ttais river bavo gone into the pig industry in a systematic and methodical manner. They have beon content to rear a few pigs on their farms, aud, at the proper season, either tbru them into bacon or ship them alive to the Sydney market. If the remarks and calculations of a writer in one of the Clarence papers — au extract from which is published in this issue — are to be relied upon, it will be evident to many of our readers that the pig industry is a eouroo of great proGt, surpassing in every way that of maize growing, aud especially for tlioso who aro not within easy access of the market. Wu believe that this industry, like every other occupation, requires to be pursued ou ...
