THE CORAKI POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 June 1887

THE CORAKI POST-OFFICE. Nearly twelve months ago, when the Ministerial party did us the honor of breakfasting with us at Coraki, among other urgent needs pointed onf, was that of a Post and Telegraph Office, and it was then promised that the unexpended balance of the Court-house vote of £3,130 — about £1000, should be ex pended on the construction of a suitable building, on the Government Site, along side the Commercial Bank, the unsafe and inconvenient packing case at present doing duty being the cause of some mirth and more indignation in the minds of our visitors, amongst whom were Mr. Lyne, then Minister for Works, Messrs. Meeks, Kidd, Toohey, Butcher, Ewing, Hogan and some other Members of Par liament, besides other gentlemen directly or indirectly connected with the then Government. The inadequacy of the Post and Tele graph Office building has increased fully 25 per cent, since that time through increase of population &c.. and a feelinsr of indignation has been evoked ...

Laying of the Fonndsition Stone j of tlie Convent at 1'asluo. The ceromony of .laying the foundation stone of the Convent to be erected in con nection with ' the Roman Catholio Church at Casino took place on Sunday last, in the presence of a numerous concourse of pooplo, some of whom had come from long distances. ; : A fairly large contingent attended from the lower parts of the river, and the energy of one or two individuals residing at Coiaki resulted in the chartering of the 'Irvington' for a. special trip, running from Swan Bay to the nearest navigable approach to thei ? squattocratic town of Casino — Irvington. The louring appear anoo of the morning precluded anything like a full cargo \intil' Coraki was reached, where the steamer was kept hanging to the wharf in a drizzling rain for a considerable timo, and it is just, probable that had she retnaiued' there all day thore would be yet another pa'ssonger to go on board, irrespec tive .of the ceromony, irrespective of anybody els...

THE CORAKI-CASINO ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 June 1887

THE CORAKI - C ASIN O ROAD. Sir, — Permit me through the medium of your valuable journal to plaze before the public the following facts. For many years the road be tween C iraki and Casino had many deviations till about three yenis ago when Surveyor John Bailing surveyed a main road the whole distance (under instructions, i presume, from the Road Superintendent), which was im mediately gazetted. In all cases gates were erected on the cross fences (which have since in most places been removed), to the intersection of the Codrington roid where the owners of the property through which the road ran per-' sistently refused to allow the publio to travel on it, which has since necessitated another survey of thnt part of the road (more expense to the country) only a few weeks ago. To travel to Cornki from the intersection of these roads along the old used undedicated one is a perfeot quagmire, a road that the traveller shudders to think of, muoh les* to travel upon. But why still travel o i...
