GRESFORD. District Council Election.— The election of two members to act on the Paterson District Council took place here and at Paterson on Friday last, a fair amount of interest being centered in the proceedings. Mr. Tinkler, a coming colt, held the honourable position of beading the list, winning by a neck from .the second candidate (Mr. Doyle), who has been a consistent runner in these ' District Council Slakes.' The defeated candidate has done j excellent service on the Council, but his neglecting to 'show his paces' at the nomination evidently did him some harm. Cricket. — The local team were rather disap pointed on Saturday last, through the Paterson C. C. crying oil their engagement on the Thursday previous. It can be said to the credit of the local club, as also of kindred clubs up the river, that they never fail to keep their engage ments, although . having barely more than enough members to comprise a team. When a club boasts of having seventy odd mem bers enrolled, a spl...

YANGO CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 12 May 1894
YANGO CREEK. As this is rather an obscure place, none of your correspondents ever take thq trouble to write about it or its inhabitants and their doings. Yango is situated about eight mile3 to the weBt of Wollombi. It does not contain many public buildings, the only one of importance being a public school which is not a very grand-looking building, being con structed of wood and covered with a shingled roof. There are about twenty-five families resid ing in this locality, their principal occupation being farming, which is carried on extensively. The inhabitants are very sociable, and are not devoid of a Bpirit of mirth. They have just erected a nice hall in whioh weekly entertainments are held. Being present at one of these entertainments held on the 7th instant, I was able to form an idea of the social itself and of the people who attended it, and I must say my opinion was a favorable one, for though I was a stranger to almost all who were there, I was treated with the utmost cordi...
