RIVERSTONE. (From our own Correspondent,) Riverstone 0.0. suffered a defeat on Saturday last at the hands of the Wilber force CO.,and good enough for them, too. If the members think more of other sport« than their cricket club they deserve to be beaten.. Perhaps they held Wilber- force too cheaply. There are now two grass widowers in town, their wives having taken their hook and leît their bairns behind. In the vicinity of the Temperance Hall things are very lively of a_ night just now Men's and women's voices can be heard round the neighbourhood all hours of the night.

Little did they think the real correspondent was listening to t...

-rr-. < iiord Roberts bas telegraphed : "Mr. Steyn in reply to my pro- clamation calling upon the Free State» to submit and disarm is circulating a notice that any burgher signing the neutrality bond will be treated as a traitor by the Boers, and will be shot." Lord Kitchener at Prieska took S3 prisoners and seized 200 stands of arms, a quantity of supplies, and a quantity of explosives. The Transvaal Boers who were in the town escaped across the river. Li view of the threat which has * been made by the Boers to destroy Johannesburg and the mines, Great Britain is issuing a proclama- tion stating that personal penalties will be exacted from the enemy for wanton damage done to the mines. p In the course of an interview President Kruger said he did not expect outside help in the present struggle. There were, he sud, 40,000 men fighting, and they would conquer or die. They would accept no conven- tions, and claimed absolute inde Sendence, and an amnesty for all isloyalists. ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. The whole of the members of the proposed Squadron of Lancers have received a notice from the Secre- tary to appear on their 4 * steeds*' at Eichmond on Saturday afternoon next for inspection. Playing with Central Cumber- land against East Sydney on Sat- urday last, W. P. Howell scored 32 runs, and took 5 wickets for 57. Les Pye in the same match made 10 not out, and took 2 wickets for 50. Owing to the demand for space we are compelled to hold over un- til next issue some extracts from a sermon preached by Mr. J. T. Marx, of Wiseman's Ferry, in two of the Anglican Churches in the Diocese of Sydney on Sunday last. Some of the Wilberforce resi- dents had evidently been collect- ing old boote for a month, for whilst the wedding party were returning from the Church on Wednesday last, quite a shower of all sizes and shapes were thrown at the happy couple. The plague has become the all absorbing theme upon which opin- ions are now exchanged. It has almost overshadowed th...

Peace Proposals. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 30 March 1900

Peace Proposals. THERE is a good deal of sense iii the proposal of the Mayer of Melbourne to hold a meeting for the purpose of endorsing Lord Salisbury's proposals for peace. With the noise being made by certain loud theorists in England, and a few sympathisers in Aus- tralia, it might be just as well if the chief towns in all the colonies, were to instruct their ciñe head to cable the Imperial Parliament that their action was endorsed in the extremeties of the Empire. Such action would serve to show the unpatriotic liberals in Eng- land that the various Australian communities have a good grasp of the seriousness of the case, and realise the error that would be committed if, by granting the semblance of independence they might be encouraged in the future to entertain again the thoughts of driving the English into the sea, a sentiment which Kruger might' well wish we would forget^ all abojit. This support of theí mother-country too, would warn: the other nations that there will be no...

RIVERSTONE. (From our own Correspondent.) Work at the local Meat Works is get- ting very slack again. Mr. H. Ireland has taken his departure for fresh fields and pastures new. Mr. S. Mason's More Yet won anothei race at the Glebe pony races last Monday, the prize being £10. Playing cricket^gainst the. College on Saturday last the tail end of the team came to the rescue again. A two-storey brick building is being erected alongside Mr. Quinn's residence. Rumour says that it is a country resi- dence for Mr. R. Richards. Some of our local young men intend joining the Hawkesbury Half-squadron of Lancers. They should take well, as some of them are strapping young fellows.
