PIGEON MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
PIGEON MATCH. On Wednesday, ioth April, there will be a big match at Blacktown, the first prize being the respectable sum of /50, with second and third of £10 and £5 respectively. A strong committee has been formed to carry the affair out, and when it is considered that it contains the names of Messrs. R. Power, T. Wilkins, J. Fitzsimmons, H. Meurant, and our old friend, J. J. Graham, it should be a great success. Mr. Wilkins, of the Royal, is treasurer, Mr. H. Meurant secretary, and Mr. J. Hamilton handicapper. Entries close at xo a.m. on the date of the match with the secretary. Things appear so satisfactory that they should draw some of the shootists from the Hawkesbury.
Sporting. COURSING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Sporting. COURSING. We understand that no match is at present pending between Mr. W. Nixon's Lady of the Lake and Mr. J. J. O'Halloran's Faugh-a-batlaugh, although some little time ago one was spoken of. Both these gentlemen are ardent sportsmen, and both keep good "cattle." Jack O'Halloran, an old friend of ours, is as " white as they make I 'em," and no man knows a dog better than he does, whilst everyone is aware of the fact that Bill Nixon keeps only the best greyhounds in his kennel, and finds that it pays him to do this. It seems that we are to have no coursing in the district this season. Why is this so ? Is it because coursing, like all other sports, can find no adherents here ? It looks like it, anyhow.

Riverstone. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Riverstone. Mr. Walker, Phrenologist, &c., will give a lecture in the Temperance Hall to-night. Mr. B. Woods intends boring for water at the rear of his premises shortly. This would be a great boon to the people of Riverstone, if good water could be procured in this way. I am sorry to ltport that a son of Mr. R. Hodgson has been seriously ill for the week with inflammation of the lungs, but under the careful attention of Dr. Gallaghan, I hear, he is likely to recover. The Public School, whioh is being built at Marsden Park, adjoining the Blacktown Road, will be completed in a few weeks. Our friend, Mr, Thomas Huxley, Coach*builder, who has resided in this town 12 or 15 months, is about to return to Windsor again to live. Mr. Huxley, as it will be seen, was compelled to drive to Windsor and back morning and night, which inconvenienced him a great deal, so he has decided to return to his old residence. Hewill be a loss to the town, as he took a certain amount of interest in ch...
Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) URICKET CLUB MEETING.-At a meeting of the Richmond Cricket Club last week another name was added to the selection commitle1. Many complaiuts are recently to be heard at the action of so'ne of the members of this committee, but it is to be hoped that now another name has been added to the list matters will be carried out in a more amicable spirit. The big victory of the club on Saturday against the Telegraph Club should be an incentive to the members geneially to work on a broader line than hitherto done. If party lines are introduced into the club it just might as well dissolve. At any rate, it is as well to let the majority rule, without clamouring at every act they do. I hope, in conjunction with the many lovers of the game in Richmond, to see each member of the club work, first, for the game, and secondly, to gain victories for his club. HE DROPPED INTO THE WBONG BOX,-One day last week Matthew Stephen, who travels with an alias, confronted...
Food for stock—Ensilage. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Food for stock-Ensilage. A few weeks ago we referred to the circumstance that, considering the dry season now being experienced, and the fact that the greater portion of the maize planted has been destroyed-the farmers of the district should utilize the corn stalks, and. by converting them into en silage, thus secure an abundance of nu tritious feed for their stock during what is expected will be a very severe winter. It does seem as though some of our farm ers wasted their opportunities, though we are glad to see that a few of them, at least, are alive to their own interests in this direction, and are making provision for the future. Stock-breeders and own ers, in particular, should not allow one leaf to go to waste, for theyJjave before them the prospect of a seasonVf distress, when all descriptions of feed will not only be dear, but difficult to obtain. Weviin derstand that Mr. G. S, Yeo, the well known stock-breeder, has purchased fully 100 tons of cornstalks during the past few...
An Oversight. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
An Oversight. A week or two ago we published a con tributed article on Windsor, and through a mere oversight the names of several business-places in town were omitted. Amongst these were those of Messrs P. Fraser, watchmaker and jeweller, whose establishment is one of the attractions town ; P. Beveridge, baker and confec tioner, an old identity ; John Lane, boot and shoemaker, whose name is a house hold word ; and F. Simon, wheelwright and blacksmith. Mr. Simon has stated that his name was purposely omitted, " because he don't happen to be in the swim," whataver that may mean ; but he makes a great mistake and knows little of us if he thinks we are accustomed to do petty little meannesses of this kind. The very fact that one or two of our warmest supporters were unmentioned is sufficient to prove that the omission was unintentional, and not, as Mr. Simon as serts, premeditated. It is only a little time ago that Mr. Simon stated that he " wouldn't read such a rag as the GAZETTE," yet...
Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Letters to the Editor. SIB,-I notice in your issue of the 28rd instant that Mr. John Owens had written denying a state ment made by me at meeting held BE Freetrade banquet in Windsor that he had seen Mr. Car ruthers, and he (Mr. C.) would not attend unless Mr. Bowman's name was placed first on the list. I beg to state most emphatically the words used by Mr. Owens were to the effect that he had called on and seen Mr. Carruthers, and that he informed him (Mr. 0.) he would not attend the banquet unless Mr. Bowman's name was placed first on the list, in fact, the banquet to be in honor of Mr. Bowman instead of Mr. Carruthers. I think there were only four persons present when the statement was made, viz., Messrs. Owens, Greenwell, Gambrill and myself. I have Been Mr. Greenwell, alBO Mr. Gambrill, since reading Mr. Owens' denial, and J both gentlemen assure me that they distinctly heard Mr. Owens make use of the words which he now denies. Yours, &c., A. Tornbull. Our Boys defeated...

Luck in Farming. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Luck in Farming. There is a large class, not only of farmers but of other classes of people, who seem to have an abiding faith in luck. If a man raises a good crop or has good stock, he is said to have good luck. If he raises small crops and has poor horses and poor cattle, he considers himself in bad luck. Some seem to put an abiding faith in Providence, and seem to expect Him to do more than His share. Here are three things which we have always considered were essential to good farming. Good soil, well prepared; good seed carefully planted; thorough cultivation at the proper time and in the right manner. If these can be given or secured, the farmer may consider himself lucky, as he is termed by a claiss of his neighbours! If he neglects these and is content to take the soil as it is and give* indifferent cultivation, and in consequence raises light crops, he will more than likely lay it all to his bad luck. We might perhaps go a step or two further and include stock and farming im...
Support Local Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Support Local Industry. There is the true grit in this para ! graph, taken from a notice of the Abbey | Soap Works, Lithgow, which appeared j in the Lithgow paper (which is a Pro I tectionist organ):-The Freetrader should i be glad to see industries of this kind starting up in our midst, and prodm . at a rate which defies external com petition. The Protectionist, if true to his principles, should assist such infant" efforts, and thereby give employment to our own labor by " keeping the money in the country." Strangely enough, the Protectionists of this district are the worst patrons of such industries. We had occasion to note this before in connection with the Cooerwull Tweed Factory, and the fact was again brought forcibly before us in our enquiries at the Soap Works. We are utterly unable to account for this. To hear that many Protectionist talkers are Freetraders in practise would not surprise us, for we have long been familiar with the fact, but to find them protecting the forei...
Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Letters to the Editor. SIR,-In your last issue, I notice you inserted Mr. C. P. ' Ayling's letter to the " Daily Telegraph," as a matter of 1 public inteus. no dnubt. The letter is indeed interesting, and the sequal more so, as you will presently see. Mr. Ayling complains in his letter that the paragraph (which, by the bye was a telegram from the " Telegraph's" Windsor correspondent) in the "Telegraph" anent the Railway Commissioners' treatment of tlie Windsor dep utation was incomplete ; and I may remind Mr. Ayling that his letter is also incomplete. I will complete it for htm and would have dono so in my letter to the "Telegraph," written on the 21st inst, had I known then what I know now. Mr. Ayling is quite welcome to cuddle the idea that he so filled Mr. Eddy's mind with disgust of Windsor, on account of political patronage, that that gentlemen treated the Windsor deputation with discourtesy-in fact, purposely intuited ilium ; but it so happens that I know different. Mr. Ayling...
Concert at Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Concert at Richmond. Tlie curtain rises, silence falls, And minds attuned to gloom or wit Give expectations to the stalls, And anxious faces to the pit. This was the case with the extra large audience which assembled at Lhe Richmond School of Arts on Friday evening last, to witness the performance and listen to the concert arranged by the local Oddfellows' Lodge, in aid of the widow and family of the late Lieutenant Mitchell. This gentleman was exceedingly popular, not only in the town where he resided, but in the district arornd, and desert edly so-for he was a genial, jovial spirit, ever ready himself to lend a helping hand to a worthy cause, and always on the alert to assist in any movement calculated to improve the prospects of the " lovely village." Therefore, it was expected that a conceit tendered to his widow and family would he successful from all points of view, anil the promoters had every reason to be well satisfied with the result of their efforts. If there be any truth...
Local Aldermanic Amenities. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Local Aldermanic Amenities. In the Council on Wednesday evening things were a bit animated. ^1(1. Primrose charged the Mayor with having called him " a political sneak and a political nuisance." He had been told this by two gentleman who heard it. The Mayor : " Bring them to my face and I'll prove it is un true." Aid. Primrose: " The gentlemen were Aid. Simon and Mr. Chandler." Aid. Simon: " I deny having said that I heard the Mayor use those words." (Hear, hear.) Aid. Primrose : " But you were told that he said them." Aid. Simon : " Yes.'r Later on, Aid. Primrose ran foul of Aid. Smith, who, when the the former was speaking, said, " We can suffer almost any infliction, but not your verbosity." Aid. Primrose said new blood was wanted in the Council, and the old hands required to be dispensed with-excepting himself, of course Aid. Smith remarked that Aid. Primrose always strained at a gnat and swallowed a camel, when Aid. Primrose called the attention of the Mayor to the way he was i...
A Pleasing Social. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
A Pleasing Social. On Thursday evening a large number of ladies and gentlemen gathered at the Congregational Church to take part in a social tendered to the Rev. Morgan Williams, Mrs. and Miss Williams, prior to their departure from town. Amongst those present were the Revs. W. Hill, P. Fitz gerld (in the chair) and W. Ayling. Apologies were read from Rev. Mr. Blacket and Mr. J. Tebbutt. The proceedings opened with a prayer by the Rev. P. Fitzgerald, after which the hymn, " Say a kind word," was sung. Mr. S. T Green well followed with an address of some length, in which he spoke of the excellent qualities of Mr. Williams and of his wife and daughter, paying a high tribute to all three. He then presented Miss Williams with a gold bracelet, of a very nice design, and one of considerable value. The Rev. Morgan Williams spoke for a considerable time, and thanked those present for their kindness to him. A hymn, " Hear the angels," followed, and the Rev. Mr. Ayling delivered one of his hu...
South Ward Election. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
South Ward Election. On Thursday morning, Mr. Mortley received a letter from Mr. Walter Coonan stating that he had been instructed to apply to the Supreme Court for an injunction in reference to the recent election, unless he (Mr. Mortley) resigned by Friday. The ground for the application will be that 25 persons voted who were not entitled to do so. Mr. Mortley replied that he declined to resign. We understand that Mr. Gosper has signed a document authorizing Mr. G. Davies to take these proceedings, and as this individuol has CARTE BLANCHE in this direction, he will, no doubt, go in big licks.
Bombastes Furioso Again. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 30 March 1889
Bombastes Furioso Again. On Wednesday last Mr. G. Davies informed Mr. A. Bowman, M.P., that he had seen Mr. Eddy, who was favourably inclined towards the tram way to Sackville Reach. Later on, Mr. Bowman ! interviewed Mr. Eddy, who said that this was untrue; he had not seen Mr. Davies, and this was the first he heard of the tramway. Crushed again. This is the way in which some people earn a little notoriety-and yet there are people simple enough to be gulled.
