A TROPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1890

A TROPHY. We understand that E. Webb & Co. have ordered, from America, a very handsome flower vase, which they are giving to the Bathurst Agricultural, Horti cultural, and Pastoral Association for open compet ition, at the next show. It has been estimated that the trophy would cost about 15 guineas, hence, it is well worth trying to win. We learn that the prize will be for best collection of farm produce, grown by the exhibitor. Farmers should be on the look out to see the conditions, &c. The following are the conditions on which the the trophy will be given, if approved by the Com mittee of the Agricultural Society : — 1st.

The navigation incline of the Taff Vale Railway, originally constructed for rope traction, is now worked by locomotives, the maximum gradient being j 1 in 17*8 and the average 1 in 20 for half a mile. This is the steepest gradient we have. Next is the Oldham incline of 1 in 27, and the Accrington indine of 1 in 37. The Lickey incline on the I Birmingham and Gloucester line, for a length of more than two miles, has a gradient of 1 in 37f, and is the steepest on a through main line for that distance. There are some very heavy gradients, for short distances, in connection with the junctions between the underground and surface railways in London, as from Aldersgate-street to Ludgate Hijl J and between the Metropolitan and the Great Northern at King's Cross, in which . latter case one of the connecting lines first dives underneath the level of the underground line* *$pcL. tbeqf4jiy sharp curves and steep inclines, re-ascends till the level of the great Northern main line is reached. — En...

THE METROPLIS. Sydney, 10th April, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1890

THE METROPLIS. [from our own correspondent.]- ? Sydney, 10th April, 1890. Easter '90 will have some lines in Australian his tory. In many districts it will be remembered as a time of immense floods, reminding one in some of their incidence of the overflowing of the banks of the Nile, inasmuch as their occurrence came not with the rain but days, and, in some cases weeks, there after. There has been, and will be, much present loss to residents along the track of the tributaries of that great river that crosses our continent, but there must likewise, in other cases, be considerable future gain ; and, had a proper and extensive system of irrigation works been in operation along their banks, this, like the annual overflow of the Nile, would have been looked upon as a blessing. # * * j* j/ «j* In Sydney it will be remembered as a time of almost unparalleled salubrity of weather that was taken ad vantage of bv an unDrecedented number of its inhabitants to patronize every known species of a...

A.D. 1876. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 May 1890

a.d. 1876. Mr. Chairman and honourable gentlemen of your Com mittee, — With your permission we may perhaps be allowed to preface the remarks we have to make touching the first gold discovery, by stating that Mr. James Tom and we always acted up to the letter and spirit of every arrange ment we made with Hargraves which he did not do with us, and we feel confident the nearer we come to the truth about such gold discovery the better our case will appear. 'We will first acquaint your honourable committee with all Mr, Hargraves did towards the discovery, and after wards, with permission, we will state the part we took in the matter. When Mr, Hargraves visited Bathurst, or rather the Gnyong neighbourhood, he called on Mr. John Lister and told him he was on hfa way to Wellington in search of a gold field, upon which Lister told him he had been in search of gold himself, and showed him some stones which they both supposed were stones of an auriferous character. From this information they j...

FIRST GOLD DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 14 June 1890

^ - FIRST GOLD DISCOVERY. From tlw Forbes and Parltes Gazette, Mr. Hargraves has denied ever having received as his own the fourth pare of the four ounces of gold which we procured at Ophir while he was in Sydney, or 150 miles away from ub. We have no doubt Mr. Hargraves denies having received this gold, because he sees that his accept ance of it as his own involves & proof of partnership with us. When Mr. Hargraves took these four ounces of gold from us he valued them at £3 10s. an ounce, and we now plainly and distinctly assert that Mr. Hargraves, according to this value, not only got his share, or £ of the four ounces, but we also unhesitatingly affirm that it is quite impossible he can have forgotten the circumstances. We will explain why. Soon after the first rush to Ophir set in, Mr. John Lister accompanied Mr. Hargraves to that Elace (Mr. Hargraves was going there to show the Lite tutchbury, the Government Geologist, that a payable gold-field had been discovered) and ...

Paper Made to Serve for Iron & Steel. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 14 June 1890

» ? - Paper Made to Serve for Iron & Steel. Many months since we reported that paper was being used for making railway rails in America. The Herald now finds some other uses for paper. Our readers' will find same herewith : — ' Paper is now made to serve for steel and iron. When strong fibre is used it can be made into a substance so hard that it can scarcely be scratched. Railroad car wheels are made of it more durable than iron. A ;store in Atlanta, ' Georgia, has been built entirely of paper, the St. Louis Stationer de clares. The rafters, weatherboards, roof and flooring are all made of paper boards, impervious to water. On account of the surface of the paper being smooth and hard, it cannot catch fire- as easily as a wooden' building. It is found warm in cold and cool in hot weather. The Breslau fireproof chimney has do monst rated that cooking and heating stoves, bath tubs, and pots, when annealed by a process that makes it fireproof, become more lasting than iron, and...

The Bogus Foreign Cry. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 14 June 1890

The Bogus Foreign Cry'. A writer in the Goulburn Herald discourses thus concerning the nonsense we hear of foreign trade:— ' Here is another nut to be cracked by those gentle men who are so voluble in praise of Victoria, and yet have left it and never go back. The. Sydney unemployed who sleep under shelter provided by the State were the other day questioned ; and it was found that only twenty-five belonged to our own colony, and sixty-three to Victoria ! Some one has suggested that these Victorians should be provided with free passes to the border of their own colony ; but I fear they would ' soon come back. If they could be bound in some penalty not to return, it would be a good thing, perhaps. Freetraders gene rally do not object to an honest, industrious Vic torian coming here ; we are all of one race, and their selecting New South Wales is a compliment to us, and one that ought to shut the mouths of those who are constantly dilating on the superiority of Vic toria. But the labou...

WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 14 June 1890

WOOL. FfiOM reports to hand we learn that the Webb Springfield wool realised a good price in London on April 19th last It was sold in the grease, and went as high as I/- per Ib. Considering the fall that has taken place since December, this is »v great price, and speaks well for the quality of the wool. The pieces, &c, were scoured, and 8 bales brought Ij6j 8 bales lid ; 5 bales of bellies brought ' l/4f , and 5 of locks brought 1/24 per lb. Many people are under the impression that the wool from the ordinary common sheep brings the. same as that from better bred animals. This has **eett tested now two years in succession by the Springfield wool. Being understocked some time since, a lot of good wethers were purchased, but' their wool did not 'bring within pence per lb. of the station-bred wool. Ordinary store wethers, such as we usually see sold at the sale yards, hare again been shorn, and the wool sent home and sold at the same time as the other, with the result that the ...

THE METROPOLIS. Sydney, 9th June, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 14 June 1890

THE METROPOLIS. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, 9th June, 1890. The niosfc talked of event during the month has certainly been the untoward accident to the veteran Premier. All sections of the community have vied in their efforts to show their sympathy for hira, and the whole of the circumstances surrounding the case naturally evoke thSt sentiment. His age, his position, his action at this particular juncture in regard to Federation, all combine to secure for him the heartfelt desires of the community here — and this feeling has been re-echoed even in the very highest official circles in England — that he may recover and that right speedily. Just in passing a thought occurs that, as the fracture must be united again by a sort of growth, is it not an astounding fact that growth can take place after a man has actually passed the usual bound of life ! # # # # # # The Federation debate bids fair to be a perfect Eiffel tower of talk, as it has already been designated, so far Mr. Br...

A thunderstorm in a teapot would be nothing to the fuss that has been made over the words ' ' adyisableness ' and ' advisability.' Mr W. H. Webb made use of th-» latter in a resolution at ths School of Arts, and, at the suggestion of Mr. G. H. Macdougal, changed it for ' advisableness,' this being thought the more correct word. A warm and heated discussion at once took place at the meeting between newspaper editors, reporters, and school teachers. Paragraphs followed in the local papers, and to crown all the .Echo took it up, and we under stand wrote a leading article upon it. Whether we consider the 'advisability ' of publishing these facts to our readers, or whether we prefer the ' advisable ness ' of doing so, does not much matter. At the same time our readers cannot go wrong by not only considering the ' advisability ' or ' advisableness ' of securing their requirements at the Western Ware house, but will serve their own interests by acting forthwith, notwithstanding the fact th...
