Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Mining. ! HB. THOMAS CORNISH, mining engineer, who left London in February last for a visit to some of the principal Australian gold fields on behalf of the " Austral and Trust Agency (Limited)," has just returned to London. He is thoroughly satisfied that there ia a vast field for the profitable invest- ment of British capital in the further development and systematic working of gold mines. Taking the colony of 'Victoria, for instance, with the resources of which Hr. Cornish is very familiar, it has already produced upwards of £230,000,000, and gold mining as yet only in ita infancy. This vast quantity of new money added to the wealth of the world by the miners of Victoria is but an instal- ment of what the colony is yet able to produce if gold mining be entered into on a business basis and conducted with enterprise and economy. Mr. Cornish says that on every goldfield he visited, large areas of well proved auriferous ground are lying nn worked for "want of capital and labour, whic...

Letters to the Editor. TEX Editor does not bold himself responsible for opinion« txpresied by comes pendents. Ulmarra Racecourse Road. I SIB.-Your correspondent, in Saturday's issue, lias either been mislead or is wilfully misrepresenting the facts of the above proposed diversion of road. We do not wish to interfere with the conree or the annual races, but are wiUing to retain the present road, or take one running parallel, on the inside course. If we accepted the proposal of the Race Committee, our road would be ander water daring flood or ordinary rain. And we ask, is it fair to ns who use this road all the year round, to be com- pelled to travel on one impassable half the year ? Considering thin has been bur. track for the last 30 years, that it is a Government reserve vested in the Council, we would ask your correspondent (or any fair-minded person) where the justice is in closing a road under such circumstances, to gratify the tastes of a few - a by no means elevating, but rath...
Commercial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Commercial. 'l'un Crown lands sale at lawrence on Wednesday did not ptpvoke keen competition, and four lots out of 14 were p.&scd in. On Thursday about 400 acres were selected in four portions. Country properties are not in strong demand, but city properties have a firmer tendency, conse- quent on the more promising prospect of the Railways. Trade is not brisk in town, notwithstanding the attractive lists advertised by our leading business firms. A Macleay buyer has, this week, purchased about 200 fat cattle from one of the up-river stations.

TREATMENT OF STRINGHALT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
TREATMENT Ol STRINGS ALT. A TRIAL of the newly-discovered treatment for the disease in horses known as stringhalt took place on Wednesday last at Lindenow, Victoria. Two horses were supplied as subjects for treatment, one of the animals having contracted the disease so badly that it was hardly able to walk. The disease had developed in this case not only in its ordinary L form, which is evidenced by the contraction of the * muscles of the hind legs, but the system generally was apparently infested with the germs of the ' disease, for that it is a germ disease is Mr. Slater's contention. The other horse was also a very bad case indeed, and was unbroken to any work ; in fact,'they were the two worst possible cases in the district. Mr. Slater's treatment was so successful that one of the horses, he states, could have been worked the next day. The gentlemen appointed to witness the trial expressed themselves as thor- oughly satisfied with, and not a little astonished at, the good result...

Not a Bad Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Not a Bad Joke. " WILL HONEYCOMB," in the Dubbo Dispatch, writes :-It has been often said that most people will Bign any petition presented to them. They are asked, and withont reading what they sign, they place their autograph to it. In nine casea ont of ten, this is done, so as not to offend. Sign- ing cofts nothing, and a refusal is seldom experi- enced. An example of the truth of this has been witnessed at a place called Morangorell, which is situated near Grenfell. A petition, addressed to Sir Henry Parkes, was proposed by some waggish youth who desired to prove the rcductio ai absurdam in regard to memorials. It was signed right and left, magistrates, church dignitaries, squatters-in fact, the able-bodied population of Morangarell, without the exoeption I have named, affixed their names, until at length an imposing and very bnlky petition was the result. Then the * concocter of the affair had his little joke. He -ft. published the text, which was a request to the Government to...
Lawrence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Lawrence. MONDAY. Cricketing Trophy.-I am informed that Mr. George Musto, the President elect of the Lawrence Cricket Club, has handed the committee a very useful present in the shape of a cheque for five guineas (£5 5s) the donor suggesting the purchase of a " trophy." Accompanying the gift a wish is also expressed that the committee will decide the manner in which the gift shall be ultimately disposed of. Perhaps I may not be far wrong in making this assertion, that the Lawrence Cricket Club this season has received promises of more trophies than any other club on the river, and more satisfactory still, the trophies are appro- priate and good ; but Mr. Musto's is the best of all. An Unprepared Dip.-A few days ago a party of gentlemen, consisting of Messrs. B. H. B. Johnson, C. J. Lcewenthal, and G. Musto, went out sailing in a small boat at Lawrence, the wind being rather boisterous. The little craft at times was rather troublesome to handle, and on one occasion became so full of ...
Bellinger River. 12TH OCTOBER. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Bellinger River. 12TH OCTOBER. I PRESBYTERIAN PICNIC-The annual picnic held in connection with the Presbyterian Sunday school at Fernmount, passed off successfully. Messrs. See and Co., with their customary liberality, granted the use of one of their punts and the steam drogher Matilda, free of charge, and the trip to the ocean was a great pleasure. After the usual quantity of prizes had been distributed for well won races and other games, and another " tuck in " indulged in, a start for home was made ; and when all were assembled on the steamer, the Kev. Mr. Brown, at the request of the Sunday school children, proceeded to read an address to their worthy superintendent, Mr. John Pollock, owing to whose energetic services the Sunday school largely owes its present flourishing condition. Mr. Brown stated that it was also their intention to present Mr. Pollock with a Bible, which would be done at the Sunday school. Mr. Pollock suitably thanked the members of the school for their unloo...
Ploughing Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
I Ploughing Matches. SIB.-When I read a letter by " H. Haynes " re ploughing matches, I came to the conclusion that the writer thought himself better able to show how ploughing matches should be carried out than the Agricultural Society, which comprises many farmers who are well represented on the committee, notwithstanding what Mr. Haynes states. He overlooked the fact that the General Committee elected the Executive Committee, a body he insulted. I am à farmer, and admit that I was invited by prominent members to allow myself to be nominated on the Executive. I declined because I have not the time to attend the necessary meet- ings. Experience has tanght me that the gentle- men who have acted on the Executive have done their best to serve the farmers of the district, and I, for one, feel deeply indebted to them. There are croakers who are always finding fault with those who have the confidence of their fellow men, and I fear that Mr. Haynes is one of these. I don't wish to be insu...
Macleay River. 0CTOBER 14. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Macleay River. 0 CTOBEB 14. IRISH NATIOSAIÏ LEAGUE. -The visit of Sir Thomas Esmonde to this district benefitted the cause he espouses to the extent of about £225. The Kempsey meeting totalled fully £100, while at Smithtown the collections reached £125. At Kempsey Sir Thomas was the recipient of an address' of welcome. JOCKEY CLUB.-The Macleay River Jockey Club now numbers over 80 members. During a recent canvass by the Secretary 54 were added to the list. The mles of the Clarence River J.C. were adopted with slight amendments on the rules of the Macleay Club, which now seems to have entered on a prosperous career. DAIBY COMPANY.-Two schemes of initiating practical dairying have been introduced to the Macleay. One of these is a perfect co-operative concern, the profits entirely going to the share- holders. It is already formed and established at Kinchela. The other proposal is a dairying concern, with shareholders limited to 20, who purchase the milk. IS shares in the latter are tak...
THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. RIGGING OF THE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
THE AGRICULTURIST 4 GRAZIER. RIGGING OF TUE MARKETS. THERE appears to be a considerable amount of uneasiness just now .amongst the butter makers, owing to the fall in prices. This fall is natural to some extent, consequent upon the largely increased production arising from the multiplica- tion of factories and the improved methods of manufacture. The factory product is not only a -euperior article commanding the highest price, but the rapidity of production, combined with other facilities, having gone beyond the demand, the price has not only fallen, but there are indications of a still downward tendency. This over-production is not limited to this colony. In Victoria themuch higher duty on butter, combined with the modern appliances for its manufacture, and ? the rail facilities enjoyed by every part of that colony, has closed the Victorian marget against New South Wales butter. Not only BO, but it is estimated that Victoria is in a position to export to England at least 50 tons of...

MABEIED IN CHAINS.-NOW and again a slight lifting of the veil which hides the gloomy life of the wretched exile beyond the Siberian frontier shows ns how pathetic is the alternation of joy and sorrow in the political convict's existence. A Tobolsk, journal briefly describes the marriage ceremony between a former Russian officer con- demned to ten years' hard labour in the mines and life-long banishment and a young and beautiful girl, possessing an ample fortune in her own right, who had faithfully and wearily followed the foot- steps of her lover. The bridegroom was brought to the altar of the prison chapel in the soiled gray clothes of a miner, his ankles bound by chains rivetted to the iron waistband. The marriage ceremony over, husband and wife bade each other a ead but hopeful farewell ; he to return to his gloomy, toilsome life, and she to wait wearily until her husband obtains the freedom of a colonist. What the Tobolsk journal does not tell us is how uncertain is the prospect...
Palmer's Island and District Progress Association. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Palmer's Island and District Progress Association. THE half-yearly meeting waa held on 12th instant, in the Oddfellows' hall. There was a fair attend- ance of members. The Secretary detailed the business done during the half-year, and read the communications received from the Member for the Clarence re shed on wharf ; and from Mr. Hurley, re roads. Daring the half-year the Member for the district paid Palmer's Island a visit, when several mattera were brought forward, and have since been attended to by Mr. M'Farlane. Mr. J. MARSH proposed " That the members, as a whole, be formed into a committee in lieu of the existing committee."-Carried. This motion met with unanimous approval, especially as some of the outgoing committee had shown considerable apathy during the half-year, several meetings being allowed to elapse for want of a quorum. Proposed by Mr. MABSH, and seconded by Mr. SCHIPP, "That the quorum be five in lieu of seven."-Carried. Proposed by Mr. J. BURNS and seconded, " Th...
Coldstream. WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
. Coldstream. WEDNESDAY. CHOPS.-In many places here the young maize has * been quite destroyed by a kind of grub. This necessitates a fresh planting, and causes our hard- working and industrious husband much annoyance. SERIOUS LOBS.-A valuable horse was lost in a very remarkable manner here last week. The horse was very fractious always when having the bridle removed, and a young man skilful among hones thought to do its owner a service by breaking it off the bad habit. He had been told to catch a horse by the tongue was an eSectnal method. He tried the experiment, with the result that the horse bounded away leaving quite half ita tongue in his hand. THE Civil Service applicants from here were very fairly successful. Considering only 30 per cent, of all those in the colony passed, and out of that 12 per cent, were from this locality, it is remarkably good, I think._
