THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. Effects of Late Flood. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

THE AGRICULTURIST «t GRAZER. Effects of Late Flood. Ora farmers have good reason to congratu- late themselves on the comparatively small : injury done to their crops or belongings, by the late flood. A very large proportion ' of the cultivated land in our district was sub- merged to a depth of many feet in places, . but the maize having been removed, with the exception of a few isolated fields, reduced the" damaging effects of the visitation to a minimum. The fertilising sediment deposi- ted on the - low lands will enrich them ' immensely, and . this is a benefit accruing from floods, that is not * recognised to the ; extent it should be. To floods is undoubt- ! : edly due the fertility: of our very best lands, 1 and though their occurrence is at times very destructive, ¡the addition they mate to. the soil.enriches it to an extent that would be >.morêàppreciàtëd,if o ur farmers were obliged - to use fertilisers.

The Ladies' Column. A Gruesome Story. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Ladies'Column. A Gruesome Story. APBOPos a State Ball given recently, a grue- some story ia current. It is told by one of the victims of the tragedy, and ia, the London correspondent of the Liverpool. Post has reason to believe, literally true. At a festive ball given at Christmas there was among the dancers a young lady who, though she had not been long "out," was well known in London society. There were some questions whether she could attend the ball, not being in very good health, and' what was worse, manifesting a certain flush- ing pf the face which fell short of her customary perfection of complexion. A doctor was consulted, but he said there was nothing ¡particularly the matter with her no reason why she should not go to the ball. She went, and as usual had a host of patrons, danced far into the night, and returning home next day, took to her bed, with a most virulent attack of measles. This was bad . enough, for her,but the infection had spread. I About a dozen eligible...

An Amazonian Corps in America. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

An Amazonian Corps in America. A military company composed entirely of girlB, regularly uniformed, and drilled by a senior officer of the National Guard, is just now Poughkeepsie's chief claim to distinction. The Poughkeepsie's Amazonian Corps-that 'is not the real name of it, but that, is what facetious people call it-has been in flourish- ing existence several months. When the idea of a young women's military company was first suggested, it was immediately declared to be impossible, because no one could be found willing to join it. In spite of this prediction, the company has grown from six to 62, and drilling is now the most popular fad in Poughkeepsie society. All the members are from the best families in the town and its vicinity. The originator of ' the idea made up her mind that most of the young women of Poughkeepsie sadly needed more exercise, and the best exercise she knew of or could hear of was that of mili- tary drill. Drills are now held twice a month in the State Armo...

Dairying in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Dairying in Victoria. THE Minister of Agriculture has every reason to congratulate himself on the results following the wort of the travelling dairy. In less than 12 months 22 butter ' factories have been started, principally in the Gippsland, North-western and "Western districts. Mr. Crawford, the manager of the travelling dairy, says we may legitimately expect -from the establishment of these butter factories that hundreds of thousands 'of acres now used merely as grazing areas, bringing in small profits, will be turned into dairy farms, and return to their owners substantial interest for the money laid out. He anticipated a higher price all round for the improved manufactured article. Instead . . of .as now tons of butter per week coming into our markets and selling at the price of bad cart grease, with co-operative butter factories on all sides bad butter will be the exception, and not, as formerly, the rule. He thinks that the annual glut which takes place in the butter market ...

Worth Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Worth Knowing, BEADT METHPITÓF TESTING THE FBESH NESS OF EoGS.TrrDr. D. Gk Evans has dis- covered a new and rapicf method by which the .degree of freshness of .eggs can. .be correctly ascertained: " He has observed that when a perfectly fresh egg is placed .to the ear and violently agitated, no sound is noted; but if the egg is stale a knocking sound is heard, as if the contents were not sufficient to fill the shell. The greater the condition of staleness or rottenness of the egg, the greater is the oscillation produced and the sound generated. THE BLUE COLOB OF THE SEX-The blue | color of the sky has now been proved by Professor Hartley, of Dublin, to be due to the ozone of the atmosphere. Ozdoe is a compressed and particularly active form bf the ordinary oxygen gas which constitutes about one-fifth part of the air. The natural bleaching power of the atmosphere is due likewise to the presence of this ozone. When ozone is over abundant in the air it is said by some medical men to pr...

Lismore. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Lismore. MONDAY   THE FLOOD.— All sorts of reports were in circula- tion here about the flood in Grafton, and the memo posted at the Telegraph Office to the effect that the river had broken over from See's wharf downwards caused considerable anxiety. More care should be exercised in sending such information ; telegraph- ing "sensational news" may give some pleasure to certain people, but these should respect the feel- ings of others. It was very unfortunate that the Telegraph lines were giving way so frequently, and many persons hold that provision should be made to keep us well posted up with reliable informa- tion in time of flood. The rain here was some- thing to be remembered, and one cannot under- stand why the water did not rise higher. A flood here, however, is a small thing compared with Grafton. The current is very little. A lot of small houses were flooded and the inmates in some cases had a lot of things destroyed ; but the storekeepers made every preparation...

The Late Flood. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Late Flood.   Mr. E. J. STATHAM has taken the level of the last flood, and finds that at Grafton the rise was 19 feet 1 inch ; that of the 1876 flood, 23 feet 8 inches ; I and of the great flood of 1887, 24 feet 9 inches. The difference between the last and highest flood was therefore 5 feet 8 inches. Mr. Statham further   remarks : " There is a remarkable difference this time in the height of the back water, which was 4   feet 8 inches between the height to which it rose   at the Commercial Bank corner and the water in the river at the Crown hotel. This difference was nearest approximated in the 1876 flood, when it was 3 feet 5 inches, whilst in the great flood it was a little under 3 feet. This shows the importance of preserving and strengthening the natural level, which to so great an extent keeps the flood waters out of town at present. The flooding of the lower parts of the town on this occasion appears to have &nb...

An Incident in Australian History Missed £100,000 and became a Pauper. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

An Incident in Australian History Missed £100.000 and became a Pauper. THE history of the first free immigrant to Australia forms a chapter of stirring romance. Dr. Lang tells us "The first free immigrant, and indeed the first person of any class in society who obtained a grant of land in the colony of New South Wales, was a German of the name of Philip Schaeffer. He had been sent out in the "First Fleet" as an   agricultural superintendent, chiefly with the view to attempt the cultivation of tobacco. Schaeffer's grant was the largest of all those which I have enumerated, comprising an extent of 140 acres.. Unfortunately, how- ever, he contracted habits of intemperance, and accordingly contrived to get rid of it. He afterwards obtained a grant of fifty acres, in what constituted an exceedingly 1 valuable locality in the town of Sydney, but was induced to surrender it to the colonial government for public purposes about the year 1807, receiving as compensation twenty gal...

Lawrence. THURSDAY NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Lawrence. THURSDAY NIGHT.   The Flood and its Effects.—While Con- trasting the recent visitation with the flood of two years and a half ago, the losses generally have not been great, nor do I think business will suffer much, and that is a blessing. The land in many places has been enriched, and as a natural conse- quence, future yields may be expected to be more     productive. It does not matter how elaborately a   description may be given of the fearful anguish and suffering occasioned by some at the time of such visitations as we have had upon this river, those who have never had the misfortune to undergo such an ordeal, cannot in the least infinitesmal degree, understand the situation. We all enjoy the glorious privilege , of being able (provided our hearts are in the right place) to bestow sympathy, and there it ends. One who has never had the misfortune to lose a dear parent cannot understand the mental suffering at that &...

Police Court Evidence. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Police Court Evidence.   THE practice which has been adopted in the Sydney police offices for some time past, and has in one or two instances at least been followed in country dis- tricts-it may be necessary to say here that we do not mean Grafton-of taking abbreviated notes only of the evidence taken in cases of summary jurisdiction, has been condemned by Mr. JUSTICE WINDEYER. In a recent case before the Supreme   Court some evidence taken in the Central Police Court before Mr. ABBOTT, S.M., was tendered by the plaintiffs, but could not be admitted because it had not been signed either by the witnesses or by the presiding magistrate. The deposition clerk   having been sent for, explained the practice as above stated, and added that in such cases the notes of the evidence were never signed by the witnesses. The JUDGE said that the practice was entirely   irregular, and might lead to the defeat of justice. All depositions taken befo...

Mr. Spurgeon on Old Tunes. THEKE waa an audience of about 3000 persona at the Metropolitan Tabernacle on June 7, gathered for the purpose of a recital of old Fugal tunee ; Mr, I Spurgeon presided. Mr. J. Courtnay conducted the singing of a selection ot hyums-largely o! Dr. I Watt's-adapted to tunes used for them in Non- conformist worship during the earlier part of the century. Mr. Spurgeon interspersed the hymns with characteristic remarks and aneodotes. He thought some of the so-called improvements introduced nowadays in tunes were improvements backwards. He had alwayB insisted upon selecting tunes as well as hymns for the Tabernacle worship, so as to make all things accord. Of course, ho must not find fault with modern singing, nor did he wish to do so, only it was curious that even in " Hymns, Ancient and Modern" (that "perfeot' compilation !) the same tune should be set to " Brief life is here our portion " and to " The voice that breathed o'er Eden "-a wedding hymn ; and that ...
