RIVERSTONE. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
RIVERSTONE. (From our own correspondent.) I A new publican has come to River-1 stone. j ¡ Mr. Loreer is erecting à house near McDonnell's poultry-yard. Our town is rapidly extending in this direction. tit. Darling ha« quito lately lost the «ervíceB of Messrs. Green and Tait. Mr. Tait is accepting the offer of a good en- gagement at Bathurst If steps are not soon taken to remove the stagnant water in front of the Police Station, very serions results to health are most likely to follow. We heat that Mr. Grigor has moved in the matter. The hearing of the claim made by the Military C. C. against the Richmonds, on Tuesday night at Windsor, caused some interest here. We hare concluded from the result, that cricket rules are not very hard and fast. The number of sheep slaughtered night- ly at the local works is gradually increas- ing: 1,600 were killed on Wednesday night. For some time previous the num- ber was about 1,000. It is anticipated that there will be a further increase to 2,000 s...

MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
MAB££T8. j The quarantining of that portion of Sussex-street in the TÍoinity of King, .street where merchants and seller« of pro« duce usually meet to do business has caused no end of inconvenience to all concerned. Despite the many disadvan- tages merchants and agents have been subjected to during the last couple of days, it is satisfactory tobe able to re- port that a fair turnover was transacted in general produce yesterday. The markets were more settled and somewhat firm in tone. The moderate supply of produce forwarded by rail was quickly disposed of, the only important change in values under the hammer being an ad ' vance in lucerne hay. The inquiry for maize was brisk, the market being firm and lightly stocked. Oats moved steadily, as did chickwheat. Bran was in good demand, while pollard was scarce and in- clined to be dearer. Lucerne continued in good request Straw and oaten hay remained without quotable change. Po- tatoes were plentiful and in fair demand at lower rates. T...

Marble Cities. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
Marble Cities. THE " Australian Star " is not re- markable as a general thing for the grandeur of its conception or the originality of its ideas. In a recent article it points out that the main wharves of Sydney are built of wood, wooden piles, &c, which after all, are only tem- porary structures, whilst those of other countries are built of marble. This is from one extreme to the other, but there is certainly a lot or sound reckoning in the idea. There is only one wharf in Sydney-man-o1-war stai i's-built of masouary, and it certainly has" a more substantial appearance than piles ; but Rome was not built in a day, and Mr. O'Sullivan has not been long in oiSce. These things will come some day, in the meantime we must watch and pay. j

PASSING NOTES. The Imperial Parliament on Federation. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
PASSING NOTES. The Imperial Parliament on Federation. EVENTS have proved that it was very necessary* to send a Federal Delegation to England in order to facilítete the passage of our Constitution Bill through the Im- perial Parliament. It was not generally expected, in Australia, that the passage of that measure ?would be anything more than a formality, but the receipt of the cable some months ago, gare that aspect of the .question a very dif- ferent phase, and as events turn out it appears that New South Wales was not the only place .where adverse critics of the mea- sure were to be found. Thé joint and powerful memorandum ad- dressed $o the Secretary of the Colonies by the Delegation should iave the effect of bringing home to the authorities that the altera- tion of the Bill would be a matter of very serious import to the colonies, and to the outlying por- tions of the Empire. It is ad- mitted, of course, that the Im- perial Parliament has the power, legally speaking, of altering ...

I'm a prisoner of1 war, not a spy !' 'What odds! Nobody knows! You were captured at your out- post. By this they'll have entered you up as missing. A day or two, and scouts will discover a dead body. The head will be perforated with a bullet from a Mauser rifle. That head will be yours, rooinek. What's the conclusion ? Another victim of our sharp-shooters.' ' Is that the code of honour for soldiers in this country ? Anyway, it isn't English ; were used to square fighting. For treachery and the cunning of the Old Lad himself you fellows are dandies !' ' We have our way, you have yours,' said the Boer commander, a bit piqued. * Life is sweet. Thought there was, perhaps, somebody over the sea you'd be glad to meet again.' He spoke good English with a Dutch accent. The wily commander had touch- ed a sore spot. Jerry...

COLO. (From our own Correspondent.) A Fine Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 6 April 1900
COLO (From our own Correspondent.) A Fine Orchard. Mr. William Jones' orange orchard at the present time ÍB really a picture to look at; and the crop thereon is extra- ordinarily large. Mr. Jones and his stalwart sons alway« keep the orchard in the best of order, both as regards working the ground and spraying *,be trees for the eradication of the manifold and pes- tilential diseases which make their appearance, pnd therefore it is little wonder that the orchard is always a very/igbtly spectacle. Although many of the trees have scarcely commenced to bear. Mr. Jones expects to draw over fiéOO for the present crop. Two of his sons, Glyde and Clarence, are in the Sydney markets, and as well as selling their father's fruit, they sell for a great many otner fruit-growers on the Hawkes- bury River ; and it is almost needless to say they invariably give entire satibfac tion to all. Mr. W. Moran has just returned from a trip to Orange, he having received word some time ago that his brother-...
