The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 1 June 1889

The Weather. At Port Macquarie the weather has been very unsettled for the past few days, but we have fortunately escaped a severe flood, although a rise in the river is noticeable. Gusty rain set in from the east on Sunday, and everything indicated a heavy downpour, but the gauge showed only 267 points for the 24 hours. Although the weather has been very unsettled, the total full up to 9 a.m. on Friday was only 4in., consequently the district has escaped without any damage. On the Macleay, JJKK i/anmeo jjaveu, ann rouiming uic IAU lias i-een light, and these localities areiiparcd the devastating effects of such a flood as that .recorded in the Hunter.

Dairy Factories. TO THE EDITOR OF THE PORT MACQUARIE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 8 June 1889

Dairy Factories. TO.TIIJ: SIUTOR OF THE POET HAGQDARIB NBWM. Dear Sir,— I will avail myself of the invitation you extend for discussions and information on dairy factories, as possibly (he mode of organisation, aud the preliminary operations may be new to most of your readers. In tlm first place it is necessary to know what interest the grazing population take iu this matter, . and to what extent it would be supported by them. A public meutinir convened for tlm purpose would give a fair indication as to. whether a venture of, this kind would be looked 'On with favor.' Find whether it would be-posaible to have a guarantee of, say 1000 gallons of milk per day, at a reasonable price. If this is satis factory, the extent of a company should be decided upon, and offers made of, say 2000 shares at £1 each, or at least 1500 shares at £1 each. If sufficient applications are tendered, the company should be legally formed, and the first deposit of each share holder made, future calls of payme...

NOTICE. I BEG to tender my thanks to those persons who promised ras .their support in my endeavours to establish the Hastings River Timtt in tliis dis trict. Circumstances have arisen which prevented me— as they will any other person or company who may cherish such ideas— from carrying out my in tentions. The chief obstacle to success was the popularity of the present paper — the Port Mac quarif Neivs, which, I find, is held in high esteem, as well an the proprietor, by the inhabitants of the town and district of Port Macquarie. It was my intention to run the Time* on independent lines ; but sufficient support for a Becoud jonrual was not forthcoming, ami I have disposed of the plant. Again thanking those who promised their patronage. FRANK CLARK, Proprietor IIa»tiwjs River Times. Port Macquarie, .Time 7.

Rollands Plains. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 8 June 1889

Hollands Plains. (FROM ODR OOUliliSPONDKNT ) Seldom have we reason to complain of too much rain, but should a change not take place soon the effects of over abundance will be felt. Some few weeks past winter fell closely upon us, and a first sign of frost, but since then the weather, every few days, turned* in showery, aud still continues so. Feed is plentiful, and stock in good condition. Fiue weather is necessary to strengthen vegetation for winter, but rather late now to hope for. Mr. James Campbell has dneided upon taking his departure for the Macleay district, where I believe he intends entering into the dairy farming business on a large scale. His departure will be considerably felt, for as a person interested in the progress of his district he is one of the foremost. He is also a strong supporter of his church, and since the advent of the Presbyterian Church under the Rev. Mr. Davidson, he has filled the offices of all required in its financial affairs; aud during these years...
