KURRAJONG. From a Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 26 August 1882
KURRAJONG. From a Correspondent. NOTWITHSTANDING the cost of materials and the high price paid for labour at the pre- sent time, there appears to be great activity in the building trade, on the Kurrajong Heights. Mr. Bell, Architect and Contractor, Bes just completed a commodious and well designed residence, for W. H. Bowman Esq., The building adds much to the appearance of Fernhurst^ and Mr. Bell deserves credit for the efficient manner in which he ha. carried out the work intrusted to him. The same contractor is now erecting a boarding house, which is to contain eighteen rooms, for Mr. H. Peck. The site is well chosen, being a little below and to the right of Mr. Peek's present residence, and commands an extensive view t>f the Hawkesbury. No doubt when finished it will be well patronized by the health seeking public of Sydney. Building, however is not confined to private enterprise. The sum of £100 is being expended hy the Committee of the Presbyterian Church, on the erection o...
HAWKESBURY RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 26 August 1882
HAWKESBURY RACES. THE Spring Meetiug of 1882, commenced on Thursday-rather ominously, as regards wea- ther, but pr ved in the main a capital day, far preferable to sunshine and dust, though the fair sex may not agree with us in this re- spect. There was a very fair gathering of visitors-mostly from Sydney and other places ; and it doubtful if there were five hundred persons present, who reside in the immediate district. The showery weather, no doubt, kept many ladies away, and their absence tended to make things less bright than usual. Taken altogether, there might h ive been two thousand persons on the ground in the afternoon. The racing was good, and neither dispute or casuality occurred. Mr. W. Dargin officiated as Judge-Mr. Andrew Town having to be away on account of the funeral of a relative-and as far as we ¡ have heard, he gave every satisfaction. The racing commenced at one p.m., with a HURDLE RACB.-A Sweepstakes of 3 SOYS. each for starters only. .Second horse 15 sovs. from...

BLESSING THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CONVENT SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 26 August 1882
BLESSING TH li FOUNDATIONS OF TUE CONVENT SCHOOL. Tuts ceremony was performed with great eclat on Sunday lust, and as it wis known that so distinguished a prelate a* Archbishop Vaughan would be the principal actor, it was a strong iuducemout to many Protestants to assemble to swell the 4,'rsat gathering of their Catholic fellow colouists. At the hour of four, a pvucessiuii was formed of the children attending thc Convent and St. Matthew's Sunday Schools, headed by a young lady bearing a banner, on which was beautifully worked a figure repiesenting the Virgin Mary. The girls were all tastefully ciad in white and blue (Australian colours), and looked ex- tremely pretty. These were followed bj members of Lhe Holy Catholic Guild, bearing the emblems of the order; then several altai boys in their white gowns-while Arehpries Sheehy, Hean Flannigan, and finally, thi Archbishop, brought up the rear.

PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 26 August 1882
PINS. Cum grano salis. I notice your aol« contemporary, the " Cumberland Mercury " discusses the ques- tion of a successor to Bishop Barker ; aid in doing so strongly supports the clains of Canon Gunther. With this I don't feel in- clined to quarrel, for not only should I Tote for that gentleman's appointment, if asked to do so, but I have, for the last two years, spoken to many of the Canon's fitness, above all mei; I know of, for the vacant See. I recognize all the writer has said in support of a home made Bishop, and in no man could the mmifold qualifications be found better than the respected incumbent of St. John's. But does not my friend see the danger in the Synod appointing one of themselves? I do, to this extent : thal, seeing parsons are but men, they have their full share of human weaknesses, vanities, jealousies, &c, the same as laymen ; and though many advan- tages would accrue in having such a man of wide experience and sympathy as the Canon, there would also b...

THE Imuktslitttti Clironirle. AND FAEMEES' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, AUGUST 26, 1SS2. TUE success of the Eiukmond Musical Society has at length stimulated our Wind- sor singers to exertion-though it woul I be premature to say much as to what will be the probable results of their awakening out of so long a lethargy. However, better late than never ; though it ought never to bave been said that Richmond showed the way in a matter of this kind-seeing that we have quite as good material to work with, be- sides having a larger population to support the Society when established. We have it on good authority that Mr. F. McQuade has proffered to give his assistance in the matter, and with such a leader-supposing that gentleman will undertake the drudgery of licking such musical elements we have into shape-we ought soon to be enabled to give a good account of ourselves.

FARM AND GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 26 August 1882
FARM AND GARDEN. GARDEX OPERATTOXS VOR SEPTEMBER. This month opens auspiciously for the cul- tivator, having already had a few nice show- ers, anil, seemingly, plenty more close at haud.

And potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, artichokes, celery, parsley, and herbs may be planted out. Melons, cucumbers and pumpkins may also be sown. Attend to the weeding, and the nice showers we are getting will do the rest. In the orchard-orange, lemon, and almost all evergreen trees may be transplanted-and the so; mer the better; have all ready for their r«"-option in their new home, and whip they, in at once while the weather is moist, if pi >ssi!ib>. In favourable localities, and other circumstances^ being equal, cherries, early plums, loquats and strawberries ripen about the end of the month. FLOWER GARDEX.-Flowering shrubs may still be t...
