A Few Notes on Irrigation. [WRITTEN FOR THE GAZETTE BY G. C. J.] ADDENDA. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
A Few Notes on Irrigation. [WRITTEN FOR THE GAZETTE BY G. C. J.J ADDENDA. Since writing the above, I find that the old Bcare anent a permanent scarcity of water in the river, owing to the Sydney water supply, has re vived, thus showing how easily people become alarmists. To intensify this feeling a professional man has lately given ms opinion the same way in a clause in his report upon the state of the Hawkesbury at Windsor. With your permission, I will further trespass on your apace by endeavour ing to show that there is really no cause for alarm from this source ; the fact is, instead of the division of the upper waters of the Nepean and its tribu taries to Prospect doing us harm, it has done, and will do, much good, inasmuch as the liability In flood is considerably reduced, and in no way has our water supply, for any purpose whatever, been materially reduced. Many persons may not be lieve this, but before I go into details to con vince them of the fact, I would ask in what way h...

Cards and Grammar. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
Cards and Grammar. One evening last week four gentlemen were playing cards at a certain place in town, and when the game had been com pleted one of the defeated men said to nis partner " You and I will play off." " No," replied the other, " you and nie will play off." There and then a w.iger was made as to which of the two was correct, and a well-known pedagogue was called upon to decide the question. This he did in favour of the man who said, "You and mo will play off." As there appears to be some difference of opinion, we would like to hear from those who arc sufficiency interesed to give their ideas on this matter. We have no doubt as to the correctness of the decision.

Picturesque Spots in Sunny N.S.W. NELLIE'S GLEN. CONTRIBUTED BY A. M. W. It is not my intention to write a guide book, but to attempt, Jm.vever feidjlv, a description of one of the most charming of tin* many lovely spots to be seen anion",' tlio grand mountain ranges that skirt tJio eastern bonier of oar groat isln,nd continent. About two miles from KaLooinba Station, a'ong the main road to Tin,1 hurst, a bush road turns oft' at a trey markv.l by the early explorers, Lawson and others, as the limit of their first discovery. This road leads to Nellie's Glen, the pretty name given to a spot admitted by all tourists to be un equalled. Language indeed fails to give the remotest idea of its exceeding beauty. The rugged, precipitous cliffs, which on all sides seem to present (from the ridges along which the iron horse travels) an im passable barrier, are here from three to five hundrod feet in height, and it is down through fissures in these dill's that the bold and hardy pioneers ol Aust...
Sporting. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 March 1889
Sporting. CRICKET. On Saturday last on the Richmond Park the local team suffered a defeat at the hands of the Parrrmatta .Vlfreds, the scores being 98 and 195 respectively. However, the result of the match would have bee doubtful had a second innings been played, on account of the play shown by the Richmonds after lunch time. The Altreds previous to lunch put together the good old total of 150, with the loss of two wickets, after which the remainder were all disposed of for 45 runs. At any rate, it is no disgrace to the local team getting a beating of roo runs at the hands ot one of the best of second-rate clubs of theassocia : tion. A match between the Peninsula C.C. and Pitt Town C.C. was played at Pitt Town on Saturday afternoon, 9th March. Appended are the scores : -Pitt Town C. C. first innings: Atkins 2, Cob croft 5, Hession o, Wilbow 15, Owens o, Mitchell 13, Miller 4, W. Johnston 8, Davis o, Smallwood o, M. Johnston 2, sundries 9, total 58.
