The Tierra Seca Gold Process. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

The Tierra Seca Gold Process. A METHOD of extracting gold and other metals from their ores on the dry system, without the aid of water or chemicals, has been invented by Mr. William L. Card, of the United States. The system consists in the employment of a current of air and gravitation, in appropriately arranged machines. There are four types of these machines-namely, a small handworked prospecting machine for testing the richness of gold and mineral deposits on the spot ; a machine for concentrating refractory ores ; a machine for extracting fre9 gold from alluvial and placer soils ; and a machine for extracting free gold from crushed quartz. The principle underly- ing each of the machines, however is the same, although differently carried out to suit the require- ments of each case. As a general principle the crashed ore is fed into a hopper,, whence it is admitted on to a series of inclined sieves, which in some casea are vibrated and in others remain stationary. A fan or blower ...

School of Arts Literary and Debating Society. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

School of Arts Literary and Debating Society. THE following contributions to the Society's "Manuscript Journal" will, we believe, interest many of our readers. Other articles will be published in a future issue. Bee Farming The useful products resulting from this occupa- tion have from the remotest times attracted general attention. It may be of interest to some to know the leading feature in the natural history of bees, and one which distinguishes them from any other insect, that is, their singular distribution in three different kinds, viz., drone, queen, and worker bees. The drone is distinguished by the absence of a sting and by the humming noise which accompanies its flight. The queen bee is much larger than any of the others. The worker bees compose the 3rd class and are much smaller than the drone, or queen bees. On the Continent of Europe and America bee keeping is carried on in a large and most scientific manner. One of the tribes of Western Russia (Tchmude) are almost whol...

A World Full of Death Traps. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

A World Pull of Death Traps. ACCORDING to the American Analyst, the worst enemies of the human race are the doctors, who try to prolong our miserable existence in a world full of death traps. One medico tells you not to eat or drink what yon relish because you will eat or drink too much. Another says that you must only eat what you fancy, because otherwise you will bolt your food without giving to each morsel the thirty-six mastications which are necessary for digestion. 'You must wear a respirator over your mouth, a pad on your chest, and a swath of flannel round your loins. If you live in town, you will die of fog ; if you go to the country, you will be poisoned by.bad drainage ; if yon drink water, you are tempting the typhoid fiend; milk spelb scarlatina, and tea-cake is sudden death. Do yon shun these tempestuous pleasures of the senses and take recreations of the mind ? Do you borrow a novel from the circulating library? That is to import the germs of disease into a healthy ho...

Deep Creek Gold Mines. Visit of the Prospecting Board. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

Deep Creek Gold Mines. Visit of the Prospecting Board. OÜE Bellinger correspondent writes :-The long expected Prospecting Board arrived at the Deep Creek mines, accompanied by Mr. W. fl. Nalder, W. M'Donald, J. Ducat, E. H. Becke, Mr. Creigh- ton (Sydney Jfail), and a number of others, and were met by a large number of interested gentle- men, both from the Nambuccra and Bellinger Eivers. Messrs. Wilkinson and Slee (the Board) proceeded at once to inspect the prospector's claim, known as Buckman's. Â shaft has been sunk to a depth of 100 feet, with three drives at various levels and in various directions, so that a pretty fair idea of the country gone through could be obtained. The Board, after a very careful and minute examina tion, arrived at the opinion that a defined reef did not exist, but a general upheaval, caused by volcanic eruptions, threw np fissures and dykes which were likely to be found running East S. East by West N. West. Thus, if this be correct, all the claims on th...

Tatham. OCTOBER 14TH. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

Tatham. OCTOBER 14TH. THE bulk of the maize crop ha3 been sent to market. This makes the fourth bad season in suc- cession the maize-growers have had to contend with. What with blight, floods and dry seasons many of them have enough to do to make ends meet. The brown grub3 have been very troublesome to the young* maize ; in some places it has had to be ploughed out and re-planted. The weather has been dry for the last month ; in some places the ground is very hard, and cannot be turned over until we get a downpour. LaBt Tuesday and Wednesday mornings it was cold enongh for frost. It is said that on the low land the potatoes and young corn have been injured by frost. Those who have cane fit to out will feel the benefit of it. One man here got 140 tons off 4 acres ; some of it was ratoons only ten months growth. Messrs. Meston and King are cutting plant cane situate about two miles above Deep Creek. That will remove any doubts about disposing of cane in that neighbourhood. Some of the...

Colonists Among the Roses. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

Colonists Among the Roses. WHEBEVER there is a big fashionable crowd there one may be pretty sure of finding a goodly number of Colonists. Amongst the 10,000 people who visited the Royal Botanic Society's Gardens on July15 to witness the Floral Parade and Feast of Roses were many notable men from our various outlying possessions. Sir William and Lady Rob- inson, fresh from Trinidad, had a good view of the procession of carriages aa it passed along the broad walk, but were too far removed from the Royal dais to witness the ceremony of the presentation of prizes by the Princess of Wales. Sir Saul and Lady Samuel came late, and had anything bat an uninterrupted view. Mr. D. Morris, late of Jamaica Public Gardens, now of Kew, brought Mrs. Morris. Mr. F. A. Dangar, of N.S.W., was alone, BO also was Mr. Da Costa, of Barbados. Mr. S. W. Silver had quite a party of Ladies. Miss Ellen Terry, in a charming dress was being chaperoned by Mr. A. M.

Lawrence. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

Lawrence. THURSDAY. Sunday School Picnic-The annual feast and. gala day in connection with the Presbyterian Sunday School came off last Saturday. The morn lng opened up inauspiciously, and np to 10 or ll o'clock several smart showers fell, altogether mili- tating against the large attendance that would certainly have been present under more favorable - ' circumstances. Mr. John M'Farlane, the Snperin f^Jr tendant of the Sunday school, had evidently not ^Mipared any pains to try and make the children happy and comfortable, and being ably seconded in his efforts hy the teachers, Misses Everingham, Lattimer and Stuart, they evidently succeeded. Mr. Vf. Collins, the Superintendant of the Unde- nominational Sunday school, together with his scholars were, by invitation, also in attendance. About mid-day, when the weather took up a little, there must have been about 120 children present, but that did not much more than half represent the number that would have been there had the day been a...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

^ Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, FRIDAY. Departmental-With reference to the recent votes for different works in this district, Mr. M'Farlane writes-"All the votes have gone throngh all right with the exception of £400 for themain road, which will be on next estimates. In the meantime I have applied for a sum to be expended in anticipation of the vote, which I think will be done. I will have tenders called for works passed on the estimates as soon as possible." Gi course the right of confirming or striking off any sum of, money placed on the estimates, is necessarily appendant to the Executive, and our judgement of its decision in any particular case, should be determined by a consideration of the case itself, as well a3 the facts with which it is involved. In thia instance one can neither say that the decision has been erroneous nor unjust, for it is a matter of common knowledge that the Government is decidedly opposed to the expendi- ture of money npon roads through munici- palities, oth...

Maclean Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

Maolean Police Court. ON Thursday, October 17th, before the P.M.,' and Messrs. D. Shearer and Â. Boss, J's.P. J. Wallace, J. Larkin and R. Phelp were charged withdrawing a fishing net over an oyster lease. Mr. Temperley, Inspector of Fisheries, prosecuted ; and Mr. Jenkins appeared for defendants. The charge in this case was not denied by any of the defendants ; but their defence was based upon the contention that their license gave them "carte blanche " of the river, oyster leases not excepted. Mr. Temperley pointed ont that there was a vast difference between allowing fishing "in tidal waters " and " in any tidal waters ;" but as he was prepared to believe that the trespass was committed in ignorance of the real meaning of .the law, he would not press the matter. Mr. Jenkins, for defendants, upon this under- standing, pleaded guilty to the charge, and a verdict of 5s each was accordingly entered, costs 9s lOd, to be divided between the three defendants.

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. _I ESTABLISHED 1350.]_ SAT CÉDÂT MORNING, OCTOBER 19TH, 1889. THE LAND A CT. As the Land Act of 1SS9 will come into operation on the 1st December next, it may not be amiss to note snch of the salient points of the measure a3 affect the Eastern Division, that being the one with .which we are more immediately interested. One of the first administrative changes is authorised in the fifth clause, under which the Minister may direct any Land Board to deal with any matter without regard to the Land Board district or Land district in which the land forming the subject of the enquiry may be situated. Thus the Laud Board at Grafton may be instructed to enquire not only as to matters arising ¡upon the Tweed or the Macleay, but also as to matters arising within the land district of Armidale or Moree, The sixth clause provides that the Land Board is to determine by appraise- ment all rents, values, Sec., subject to appeal either by the Minister or by the less...

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

Echoes and Opinions. -w UPON the subject of Municipal borrowing and indebtedness, a Metropolitan journal remarks that the total indebtedness of Country Municipalities is only some 24s Sd per head of the population within such Municipalities. The debt of the city of Sydney is £5 per head, and of the Suburban Municipalities £2 10s ; while the average for the city, suburban and country is £2 9s Gd per head. There is nothing so enormous in this, considering the amount of work to be done, providing always that the indebtedness has been incurred in respect to works of great present and future public utility. To effect such works under proper restrictions, there should be no hesitation to borrow-up to the hilt of a Council's powers-a Loan for any work, the first cost of which is large, and the benefit to extend over a series of years, subject to adequate provision for repayment, is perfectly justifiable. But even for such works there should be the utmost prudence manifested in determining ...
