RIVERSTONE. (From oar own Correspondent.) The aronymous letter fiend is abroad 'at Riverstone. The ADVOCATE'S Riverstone correspon- dent is eagerly sought after. It is rumoured that one or two of our business men are about to " seek pastures new." Mr. T. Fletcher has a fine crop of quinces this year. He will commence pulling operations next week. Many residents are busy preparing for the advent of the plague. Sanitary ar- rangements are accordingly of a high order in certain households.

"Jack" and the Foreigners. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

" Jack" and the Foreigners. A very funny incident was wit- nessed the other day by a good many people in front of the Hotel de l'Europe, says the " Singapore Free Press." A British blue-jacket was coming slowly along the road, quietly smoking his pipe, when two big foreigners walked past him, turning their heads as they did so, and spitting repeatedly in his di- rection, in order to exhibit their opinion of Britain in general and that blue-jacket in particular. Jack halted, puzzled, but only fora moment. He swiftly went at one of them and floored him on the road with a good knock-out stinger under the chin, the other foreigner taking to his heels. Jack then, planting one foot with deliberation on the chest of his prostrate insul- ter, took off his hat and sang in a loud voice a stave of " Rule Britan- nia." After which, putting his hands together in an attitude of prayer, and looking devoutly up-, warde, he ejaculated solemnly, "G-od Save the Queen." Then, removing his foot from the...

CONCERT AT NORTH RICH- MOND. Avery successful entertainment was held in connection with the North Richmond Y.M.M.I. Society j in the North Bichmond Wesleyan j Church on Saturday evening, March 10th. The object of the entertainment was to augment the funds of the library attached to the Society. The inclemency of the weather during the early part of the evening prevented many of the expected performers from attend- ing. Mr. F. H. Wood, Vice president, occupied the chair. Miss Myers acted as accompanist through- out the evening, and the following Erogramme was much appreciated y the large audience present : Orchestral selection, " Sons of the Sea" and "Rule Britannia," Misses Myers (organ;, Boughton (2) and F.

ROUSE HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

ROUSE HILL. The school residence is being brighten- ed up and renovated generally by Mr. Gregory and his two sons. The Temperance meeting on Thursday evening the 8th inst, was of the usual pleasing character. Mrs. Pigott'saddresB on temperance in Ceylon, and ber slug- ing of so nae well-known tunes in the language thereof, added much to the quality of the programme. The grass has giren proof of its willing- ness to respond if it could only get suf- ficient moisture, by a very fine growth since the late tain. Much more is needed of course.

LOWER PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

LOWER PORTLAND. Do not forget about the river ex- cursion on the 26th and 27th. The steamer will leave' Mangrove Wharf at 2 p.m. Mr. Kirwan, road superinten- dent, is at present on a tour of in- spection. We hope he is consider- ing the advisability of at once carrying on the roadway from here to Wiseman's Ferry. Mr. Peter Kemp has just com- pleted a 15 feet pleasure boat, which does him no small amount of credit* The boat is built of cedar, and copper fastened, and is complete in every way. Mr. Lowe has a splendid lot of pure Minorca and Leghorn hens. It was recently found necessary to remove about ¿lb of comb from a hen ox the former variety, so as to allow it to hold its head in comfort. It is a noticeable fact that since the bubonic plague has broken out in Sydney, every employer of the boats trading from there along the river have taken to the pipe. There must be something in Lady Nico- line after all. Mr. B. Lowe is, as usual, as busy as can be in his wheelwright and blacksmit...

SIE,-In reply to your letter of the 7th inst., having reference to the election of a Captain in advance I such was not done, nor advised by ' me, at the meeting I attended, and further, such action would have been quite irregular. It is within the power of thoBe gentlemen who desire to form a Half-Squadron to hold a meeting, get intending members together and also to nominate certain gentle , men for commissions. But be- fore any appointment could be made, the sanction of the Govern , ment for the formation of the Half Squadron would have to be obtain- ed. Applications for commissions might then be made to the Colonel commanding the Regiment, who would recommend to the General Officer commanding the Military forces those considered most desir- able. There is no doubt but that the wishes of those forming the Half Squadron would he favour ablv considered. I am, Si...

Proposed Hawkesbury Half Squadron of Lancers. . 13THMÀBOH, 1900. To the Bditor ot the ADVOCATE. DEAS SIR,-After the meeting held in the Windsor School of Arts on the 8th inst., I wrote to Lieutenant Timothy re certain disputed points raised. I received the enclosed re- ply, which, it will be seen, bears out my statement that no captain was elected at the previous meet- ing in Richmond, and also bears out the remarks of the Mayor of Windsor as to the military regula- tions in such matters. I trust you will kindly insert it in your columns, to relieve any doubts still existing on the subject, and in justice to Lieutenant Timothy on whose advice the alleged elec- tion of Captain was said to have I been made.

(We do not necessarily identify <w- ?; selves with theopinions esptessed bj erne correspondents.] -.1 THAT TRIP TO WISEMAN'S. J To the Editor of the ADVOCATE. Sir,-In Wiseinau's Ferre new* in a recent issue of your ^oornal I notice that the local oorrespoa dent has again referred to. the rev cent steamer trip promoted by th» working committee of St. John'» C. of E., Wilberforce. In connec- tion therewith it will be remem- bered that he found fault with the Wilberforce promoters for engaging' the s.s. General Gordon in 'prefer- ence to the Surprise, and also for not allowing the party time (they had about two hours) to visit th» local hotel. I fully explained the matter when replying to hie former attack, but probably the; Ferry correspondent, in his blind ignor- ance, had not the mental ability to» comprehend what' was written. Personally, we have every respect for. the genial Denny O'Brien and the Host of the local hotel, and we doubt not that they deserve the Sraise sho...

ALBURY. (CONTRIBUTED) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

' ALBURY. i (CONTRIBUTED ) ] After a night's travelling in the j Great Southern express, one is greatly pleased when they step . from the ear on to the platform of ' the Albury Railway Station. The sun is just creeping up from the horizon tinging the sky with red, ! and the air is so fresh that the per- son who has been shut up amongst the smoke and dust of the etty begins to ¿eel himself anew. No sooner 4o you attempt to pass out froih the platform than you are met by the eager cabmen who are willing for a very modest sum to take you and baggage to any part of the town. I cannot fully des- cribe the sensation I felt when I first landed in Albury, but I sup- pose the good Hawkesbury folk do not care a braes button about my feelings ; they want to know about the town-the town of Albury. That there is no more delightful country town in N.S.W. must be. readily admitted. Built on the northern bank of the Murray River Albury marks the extreme southern limit of the railway system of the c...

CRICKET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 16 March 1900

? CRICKET NOTES. -T Windsor Club has put together some fine scores this season. On Saturday week last they scored 19 against Wilber force, and on Saturday last knocked up 29 against Richmond. Flaying against Redfern on Saturday last, Bill Howell took 5 wickets for 55 runs, and Les Pye 2 for 44. Les Foidevin, playing with Redfern, compiled 45 runs by good cricket. What a dull, prosaic game cricket must be here in comparison with Samoa. There the other day a dispute arose over the umpiring, a free fight ensued in which five tribes participated, and when peace was restored the oval was ornamented with 10 corpses and a dozen or BO wound- ed men. All that over cricket umpiring ! What would happen to football umpires there 1 There was something appropriate in L. W. Pye obtaining a century. His side was in need of some such effort, and L.W.P. had not made one for a consider- able period. A wee bit out of health, a wee bit out of form, and a good bit ont of luck, the all-rounder of Cumberla...
