AVAIGATION OF THE SOUTH ARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 June 1887
\AVie.mom OF THIS SOUTH ARM. The wretched state of the navigation of the South Arm of the Richmond River, or what is in reality the upper portion of the main river, the stream .called Bunga walbin Creek being the veritable South Arm, deserves the immediate attention of the Dnnnrtmpnt. of TTarhnnrH and Rivers, and it would not be too much to ask that some competent officer should be sent up at once and the proper surveys made, and work allotted to be let by contract, as was suggested lately by our junior member, Mr. Crouch. A so-called ' snagging ' party, apparently altogether un-supervised, has been engaged on the clearing of the channel of the only navigable route to Casino from the head of navigation, C raki, for some time, with the result that whereas small steamers and droghers could manage to make their trips pretty regularly before, certain obstacles exist in the stream now which render the certainty of a through trip somewhat problematical. No less than three vessels got agro...

DRAINAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 June 1887
DRAIN AVE. The Macleay correspondent of the Sydttey Mail, referring to the ymusually large transactions in cattle there lately, says : — 'f Our farmers will also gain in this respect, as most of them have large numbers of cattle that hitherto we fed on the swamps. Where the .swamps have been drained thev are erivinsr ex. cellent feed, but those where no improve ment in the shape of drainage have been made are converted into shallow lagoons with here and there sour vegetation. These swamps are all selected, and were estimated last year as worth £10 per acre.' These facts are well worth the serious consideration of the farmers of the central Richmond, whose surroundings are much on a par with their Macleay brethren, and who, like them, have thousands of acres of uridrained swamps surrounding, but who, unlike the Macleay farmers and graziers, do not render these almost .valueless swamps into grazing land, estimated to be. not only worth £10 an acre, but will yield continual mobs of cat...

Our Forests. - The Minister has been appealed toby a depu tation complaining that our 'forests are not disappearing fast enough. The saw-milling power in the oolony is pqual indeed to a very large measure of dfestrnotion, but the weak point is the niggardliuess of the publio in buy* lug, .If they would only buy 'faster; but the imported wood is so much preferred for many purposes ana tne aemanu mr noose- Duuaing hus so slackened that t 0 saw mills are com paratively idle. The forest -elearers therefore have appea'ed to the Minister to know if ho will niaKe them a present of £1000 to send one of their number to England to see if the sale bf their' hardwood Qould not be pushed there. The Minister, of course, promised to submit the mutter 10 his oolleagues, for that Is a safe way of getting rid of a deputation; but ho did not promise to back up tho recommendation , bcauso no saw clearly that it openod up a very wide question.
