In the District. GOOD AND EVIL EFFECTS. MILLIONS OF TONS OF SOIL SWEPT AWAY. GREAT DESTRUCTION OF FRUIT TREES. AUBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

In tlie District. GOOD AND EVIL EFFECTS. MILLIONS OF TONS OF SOIL SWEPT AWAY. GREAT DESTRUCTION OF FRUIT TREES. |_FKOJ[ OUR CoRBESrONDEXTS.] AUBURN. Like all other places in tho coastal region Auburn has suffered very seri ously from the unprecedented storms of tho past few days. It would take up too much space to particularise the resi dents who have undergone loss and in convenience. Quite a number of dwel lings, in diverse directions, were in vaded by storm water, and few are the roofs and walls which have not been penetrated by the driving rain. In some cases, where the land is low-lying, families have had to desert their homos, and a number of such found temporary shelter with host Steel, whose readiness in proffering help in such an unpleasant emergency deserves some recognition. The storos on the Auburn road all came in for more or less damage, and Mr. Jackson's loss in spoilt drapery and haberdashery is rather serious. A couple of shops going up for Mrs. Young, which were we...

Sad Drowning Fatality. On Thursday at noon, it was reported to tho police that the body of a man was to be seen floating in the water in the Corporation Quarry, near the Parramatta Hospital for Insane. The report proved to be too true- ; the body was found iu a half-reclining position, with the arms stretched out ns if appealing for assistance.

The Hicks-Sawyer Minstrels in Parramatta. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

The Hicks-Sawyer Minstrels in Parramatta. A nios'f genuine company than the Hicks-Sawyer Minstrels, which ap peared in the Victoria Theatre, Parra matta, on Thursday evening, has rarely played in Parramatta, and it was fitting that they should have been greeted with a firs! -class house. Downstairs, stalls and pit, was filled to standing room, and a good dress circle completed an audience perhaps hardly as full as we could have wished after witnessing the show. The company is a very large one, and includes a combination of coloured artists that has not been excelled by any previous company visiting the town. They possess a full orchestra 'which is certainly a feature in tho show, and before criticising further we should like to say that their accompaniments and 'finales' were executed with considerable skill and effect. The programme of minstrelsy contained real gems in tho line, and as evidence of the complete satisfaction which was evidenced by the audience, it may be mentioned th...

Card v. Rawlings and Levien. THE JUDGMENT. MR. RAWLINGS FINED £100. MR. LEVIEN 'STRUCK OFF' FOR 12 MONTHS. Judgment was given in this case at the Supreme Court, Sydney, yesterday, before the full court. Tho court was crowded. In tho course of his remarks in delivering judgment, the Chief Justice said tho court had to bo satisfied that Mr. Rawliugs did carry on the business of a solicitor. As far as the public wero concerned they had a right to suppose that Mr. Rawlings was a solicitor, it being shown that while his letters to the solicitors were signed in Mr. Levien's name, Ms letters to tho public were signed in his own name. In re gard to Mr. Levien, tho court had to bo satis fied that he permitted an unqualified person to practice as a solicitor. The Court had come to the conclusion (and ho said so with regret) that Mr. Levien did, in consideration of receiving one-fourth of tho gross proceeds of the busi ness, permit Mr. Rawlings to use his namo as though Mr. Rawlings were a sol...

Dundas. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

Dundas. On Friday morning commenced one of the most severe storms of wind and rain that have been experienced in this district for many years. Saturday and Sunday the rain came down in|torreuts, perfect sheets of water accompanied by a hurricane of wind, which drove the rain through every crack, making the best built houses more like seives than anything else. All communication with the outer world was cut off. Neither butcher nor baker could go their rounds, cows could not be milked, and if the elements had continued to rage much longer, inhabitants of country houses would have been put on famine rations. Much d~mage has been done to the orchards ; the fruit laden branches of orange and lemon trees torn of£ and strewn on the ground. A great deal of soil wus washed away and fencing blown down. One of the greatest sufferers Iwas Mr. McGce, whose nursery was damaged to the extent of hundreds of pounds. Several trees were blown across the Victoria Eoad, thus seriously interfering with ...
