ORIGINAL POETRY. SINGLE BLESSEDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 March 1900

ORIGINAL POETRY. ' SINGLE BLESSEDNESS. Little maiden. j«6t seventeen. Declared that the men she bated. " Vowed that e'en to the best of them She never would ¿et mated : Said that in single blessedness Her whole merry life she would live ; Scorned all mankind, nor would confess That marriage,could happiness give. Little maiden, just twenty-five, Sighed and sighed for a lover ; Owned that the joys of sing'e life Its staleness did not cover ; Envied the lucky maidens «ho Could manage a husband to get ; Tried all the tricks that a m.-dd can do, But that maid is single yet. Cross old maiden just forty-five, As cranky and sour a« can be. Towed that a husband SHE'D not have For the wealth of land and sea. At last resorts t >11 woman's rights," Ta'ks of " woman's equality," On publie platform nobly fierhts Fer "the grand cause of Liberty 1" DORETE McCAMMON.

WILBERFORCE. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 March 1900

WILBERFORCE. (From our own correspondent.) If a good shower does not soon fall some of the crops will be spoiled, Leo Lilias, son of Mr. Charles Lilias' has been spending a few days in Wilber force. Mr. Richard Bennett and wife also have been visiting Mr. George Bennett. Miss Simpson, on her journey to Albury a couple of weeks ago, had a rather un pleasant experience. AB the train was passing through just out of Sydney a small bag of gravel was thrown in through the carriage window, striking Miss Simpson on the chest. Fortunately she was not hurt ; but it is a dangerous practice, and should be stopped.

COLO. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 March 1900

COLO. (From our own correspondent.) Flying- foxes are still very numerous about here. Some of our local " ehootists " give them a lively time. A well-known young gentleman, whose name is Jim, intends joining i the holy . throng of benedicts shortly. His affianced is an Upper Colo lassie. We hear that Mr. John Bennett, of Ebenezer, our old and highly esteemed orange buyer, intends visiting this locality shortly to have a look through the local orchards. Rumour has it that Messrs. Bris Jones and W. Weyman are off to the Kempsey tin mines in about three weeks time. We hope they make a mistake and strike gold, instead of tin. Most of the melon beds about here have deteriorated to a marked extent lately, and consequently there are not such colossal consign ments going from Colo as hereto fore. Mr. James Manning has sent away close on 600 dozens, but his bed is now defunct. Colo pro duced more melons this season than ithaB done for many years. Mr. T. C.

THE HAWKESBURY VOLUNTEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 March 1900

THE HAWKESBURY VOLUNTEERS. .'? In thege martial times, and "when so much enthusiasm ie being displayed in behalf of the volunteers of New South Wales, it will no doubt be interesting to the Hawkesbury people of the present day, and our readers to know something accurately about the origin and establishment of the Hawkesbury Company in the year 1860. An erroneous account of this matter has been given in a contemporary, but through the courtesy of the Hon. W. Walker, who has lent us the local news paper of the time, we are enabled to give a correct statement about it. In "Windsor Advertiser" (a small newspaper published by a Mr. William Doyle and which lasted only six months) dated the 22nd September, 1860, we find the following : « VOLUNTEER MEETING. " A numerous and influential meeting for the purpose of initiating a Volunteer Bille Corps in Windsor, was held, pursu ant to public advertisement, on Wednes day evening last, at MABSDEK'S, Fitzroy Hotel.

Shot by the Sentry. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 9 March 1900

Shot by the Sentry. An unusual notification in con nection with the zeal of a sentry of the N.8. W. Medical Corps at Orange River camp appeared on Saturday. It runs : " No 49, Private Thomas Henry Norris, New South WaleB Army Medical Corps, was tried by a district court-martial, held at Orange River, 8outh Africa, on January 19, for insubordination, and sentenced to 48 days' imprison ment, with hard labor." From ad vices received by post it would appear that Norris was on sentry go, when two men approached the camp. They were promptly chal lenged, but did not take the trouble to reply properly. The sentry again challenged, and, on receiving an unsatisfactory reply, fired. One mau was killed, and the other wounded. The sentry was court martialled, and sentenced to six months' imprisonment, with hard labor, which was reduced to 84 hour», and, later, altogether remitted. His duty was, of course, to call out the guard, and give the men in charge, not shoot them "on sight." [Private Norr...

Hi promises the introduction of-rf Bill to amend all this, and tc bring the present system up tc date in every particular. But still tiiere is something wanting ; the paragraph was headed "Local <ïoverament " in the junior morn ing daily-which is generally looked upon as the Government organ-hence something more was expected than quibbles about existing municipal areas. Can it Im possible that Mr. See agrees -arith Mr. O'Sullivan, who said that Local Government was as dead as Julius Caesar, and that no aystem was more perfect than a good local member ? It would he a remarkable thing if a Crovernment were to bring down a Governor's speech without any mention of the Local Government HtíjLL and a more remarkable thing if a Government were to be thrown out for not introducing arneb, a thing.
