CRICKET. DUNGOG C.C. v. NEWCASTLE HALF-HOLIDAY C.C. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

CRICKET. DUNGOG C.C. v. NEWCASTLE HALF HOLIOAY C.C. A cricket match was played at Dungog on New Year's Day between Dungog and the Newcastle Half-Holiday C.C. and resulted in a win for Dun gog. The visitors had a lead of 36 runs on the first innings, but owing to the splendid bowling oE Bignell and Potter, they were disposed of in the second innings for 31, and Dungog ultimately won by 20 runs. There was intense excitement at the ? finish, as the winning hit was not mado until after the fall of the eight wicket. For the losers Lipmsn bowled very well and batted with confidence and judgment, while for Dungog Elliott's defensive cricket and Joe Bignell's hard hitting were of the greatest value at a critical time.

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

LATE GENERAL NEWS. Last night Mr. G. H. Eeid addressed a large public meeting at Jerilderie. He said that the Government appeared to think that there was a useful session before it and that a large number of Government measures could be passed, but it was too late to take up that stand. The Ministry, Mr. Eeid said, had outraged the public constitution and must answer for the consequences. If Parlia ment submitted he would not give the members of the Government a moment's peace until he had dragged them before the electors. At a meeting held at Forbes on Wednesday night it was decided to represent to the Eailway Commissioners that it is desirable to reduce freight on stock and general merchandise on the Molong Forbes railway line by charging 'main' instead of 'branch line' rates. Yesterday the district officers of the Newcastle miners endeavoured to arrange the difficulty be tween the miners and the management of the Stockton Colliery, but without success. The mine will now be laid i...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

ECHOES OF SPORT. The verdant youth who thinks he can become a millionaire by backing horses is, perhaps the great est flat 0! all. The victim of the match-box trick always gets a few free drinkB and is treated well in general before he is fleeced, but the poor punter gets nothing at all — except in those sad cases where he gets three years in gaol for embezzlement. Even the smartest of smart men go down at this fool's game in the end ; and a good sample of turf tricks came out in the story told of a very clever coon (in his own opinion) who, after taking 20 to 1 ten times over about a certain flyer, good-naturedly whispered to the bookie — ' That's all I want. Now, take my advice and don't lay this horse any more. I'm backing him for the owner.' ' Much thanks,' re plied the penciller sweetly; 'and now I'll give yon a little bit of good advice. Don't hack this horse any more. I'm laying against Mm for the jockey \' In the way of fortune-making the Turf is a lovely thing to keep away ...

LATE NEWS BY CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

LATE NEWS BY CABLE. The following messages have been taken from the Herald:— London, Jan. 4. An extraordinary and terrible freak has been perpetrated by a Russian gentleman in St. Peters burg, at a dinner given by him to a number of his friends. The host, who, it has since been ascer tained, was insane, served up a dynamite cartridge at the dinner. The cartridge exploded, and eight persons present, including the host himself, were killed. Heavy snowstorms have occurred in England. In replying to Sir Saul Samuel, Agent-General for New South Wales, and Sir Charles Tupper, High Commissioner for Canada, Mr Arnold Morley, the British Postmaster-General, stated that closed mnils from England for Australia were already sent by the Canadian- Australian line of steamers. The value of the service for the transit of mails, Mr. Morley said, would largely depend upon the forma tion of a fast Atlantic line in connection with the Vancouver service.

The Stolen Diamonds. CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

The Stolen Diamonds. CHAPTER V. We are in the smaller of the two drawing rooms, and Lady Lisle is pouring out tea, and chatting of this and that in a manner which, to me, who knows so little of real life, is quite refreshing. I wonder if Valerie enjoys it all in the same way ? I think not — at least, if she does, she gives no sign ; for she is sitting back in her chair, merely sipping her wja, ana looKing as it her thoughts were miles and miles away. There are two windows in the room, one opening upon a balcony and tiny garden down below, where spring flowers already flourish gaily in the sun shine ; the other into a side street, whence a view o£ the main street in front of the house is also to be seen. Setting her half-empty cup upon a table near, Valerie rises and moves restlessly over to this latter window, as though the talk is wearying her» and she longs therefore to get a glimpse of some thing more real than gossip about people whom she has never seen. ' Young people do not ca...

The Jockey Club held ita annual meeting on New Year's Day, when a most successful day's sport was provided. The programme was a liberal one, and in response to the call Gunnedah, Binnaway, Baradine, and the Tenandra, Mullally, and Garra willa, sent their representatives, among whom was the evergreen Sam Brownlow, who I remember away back in the sixties and seventies, when with such good bits of blood as Myrtle, who won the treble at Hill End with Sam in the pigskin King of the West, Eros, when ho won the five Maiden Plates, and many such giants of the turf, bad won their laurels with the Brownlow polish on them. And now the old general made tho Blackall folks and Queenslandera in general set up, when in company with McKenna. ho took old Beadsman up North. And I may here venture a3an opinion that out of tho many good ones he haB passed through his hands, he has at present one equal to 18 carat in the handsome and famed daughter of Epi gram and Eleanor, who was aa fit aa hands could m...

COONABARABRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

COONABARABRAN. Christmas passed oS quietly ; the heat was ex cessive in the extreme. On Boxing Day a number of the sporting fraternity went out to Baradine races, where the local horses failed to score a win. A cricket match was played on the recreation and cricket reserve by two teams captained respectively by Mr. G. E. Wright and Mr. Ballard. The teams were supposed to be evenly matched, but Wright's contingent proved far and away too good for the opposing team. In the evening they partook of a dinner prepared at Host Field's, when a most en joyable evening was passed, Mr. E. May Steer (Vice president) presiding. Speeches, toasts, and songa were indulged in till ten o'clock appeared, when the convivial meeting broke up. Each one was pleased with the pleasant day they had passed.

The revenue received at the Gunnedah Lands Office during 1893 amounted to .£21,726 10b 4d.

ALLYNBROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

ALLYNBROOK. The race meeting at Allynbrook came off on New Year's Day^ and for a first meeting was very suc cessful. The course is a very good one, but needs more clearing, as the trees in some instances pre vent the people from having a good view of the horses. The racing was good, and each event was well contested, and I think the management of affairs gave general satisfaction. The day was fairly cool, besides having any amount of shade trees standing invitingly near. On the whole ifc was a pleasant gathering, and more numerous than ex pected to see there. Death with his remorseless sickle has been busy in our district lately, chiefly among the little ones. Homes have been made deso late by the loss of those dear ones, but if we could render away the veil that hides them from mortal ken, how bright and glad their lot would appear to us then. Mr. Edmund Cusack, a very old resident of the district, was laid to rest in the Roman Catholic cemetery on Sunday last. He had reached the g...

DISTRICT NEWS. [From otje Correspondents] MILLER'S FOREST. We have now entered upon another year, and the farming prospects appear to be much better than they were a year ago. New Tear's Day waB kept as a close holiday here, a large number availing themselves of the excur sions to Newcastle and Pateraon township, the latter being well patronised, and many others driving out to various places to spend the day. The usual monthly meeting of our Progress Committee was held on Tuesday evening, the 2nd inst. The President, Mr. W. Osborn, occupied the chair. Some business in connection with road matters was dealt with, after which the meeting closed. The Committee have now received the flood-boat. It was built; by Mr. Yates, of Stockton, and is eighteen feet long by fire feet beam and copper-fastened. She is a safe and faithfully-built boat, and very suitable for the work required, but it is hoped many years will pass before it will be used for that purpose in this neighbourhood. Death. — ...

THE GOVERNMENT AND THE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

THE GOVEENMENT ASTD THE ASSEMBLY/. The Premier is confident that when the Houses meet several members who voted against the Government on the Prondfoot affair will regret their action, and help Ministers to carry on the business o£ the country. That was an item in our telegraphic news yesterday. There may be warrant for Sir George Dibbs' confidence. One can never tell what the average member of Parliament will do. The Government has betrayed the country by making a change of Administration impossible till the new electoral law is in full operation. And it will seem a comparatively small thing to the member of easy political virtne to vote white after the recess whereas he voted black before it. Ministers must give the majority against them on the ' Proudfoot affair ' credit for having a craven spirit, for beiDg thankful for being smitten in the face, for longing to kisB the rod which flayed them, for being consumed with admiration for the men who abused their power by sneaking behin...

WOODVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 January 1894

WOODV1LLE. Christmas has come and gone again with nothing of moment, so far as we were locally concerned, to mark the festive season. In fact, one i8 almost compelled to chronicle of late a complete dearth of news worth the writing. Those of us who were anxious for pleasure were obliged to seek it elsewhere, consequently New Year's Day, as usual, found many en route to Newcastle, both by rail and boat, where it is netdless to say a pleasant day was spent. This, with an odd fishing party, who by the way seemed to be impressed with the feeling that the fiBh had gone holiday-keeping, too, made up about the sum total of our holiday festivities. His Lordship the Bishop of the diocese preached here on Sunday, and, as usual, delivered a splendid addreBs from the text, ' The Life was the Light of men.' (St. John i., 4.) Weather very dry. It threatens rain constantly but seems to wear off again with nothing of any consequence. The crops and dairieB want rain badly. Woodvllle, January 3rd, 18...
