TO TnK EDITOR OP THE RICHMOND RIVER HERALD. DRAINAGE. Sir, — Drainago is a subjoot paramount in importance to all otliors, affecting tho prosperity of tho distriot, and tho Herald doserves every credit, aud thosincoro thanks of thoso interested, for being tho first looal journal to givo it publio uotioo. When it is oonsidorod that fully fifty por eont. of tho onoupicd lands of thiB distriot nre almost useless, owing to tho want of a thorough and sorvicoablo syatom of drainago— the importttneoof tho subjeot, and tho imperative necessity forcotnbinod, iutolligont, aud ouorgotio action, cannot fail to bo reoognised. In ovory undertaking, but particularly in drainage, individual offort oan do but little, therefore tho aombined effort of drainage assoointions is required to accomplish anything offoctivo. But thero aro oases in which neither tho combined effort of drainago associations, nor, much leBS, individual offort oould avail, owing to the oost of tho work, and tho difficulty in obt...
Rotation in Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 June 1887
Itotation in Cropg. ? ? No single crop removes from the soil '.all' the1' fertilising 'material applied in the manure while all crops remove'thesame in different proportions. There have been many experiments :in the direction of determining how many seasons a: single cropjcould be grown on a particular fiold with' remunerative results. As a test, ; or in pursuit _ of information, this may all be well,' but 'in farming' for profit or for the improvement of' the soil, tho continuous raifeirig of ' one crop on the some piece of land for a serieB of years can never . be con ducted to advantage. All nations that have, .attained prominence, in progressive agriculture have.; adopted a,., system of rotation in orops. Modern agricultural science has revealed to some extent the necessity for rotation. It has taught us that therei. are 15 or 16 elementary ' sub stances in various combinations, which are1 required for- -plant food, wh;le no two dissimilar'! remove' the same proportions from the...

I A STONECUTTER whose offiae adjoined his stoneyard, was seatod in his office when a friend callod upon him, and thoy discussed sovoral topics togothor, among thom tho question as to what extont lugor boor was an intoxicaut. Tho stone-cutter main tained that beer was not intoxicating, while his frioiul maintained tho opposite. Tho stonecutter said — 'There is a man at work in the yard (pointing to a brawny chestod Gorman) who could drink a buckot (throe gallons) of beer at ono sitting, and folt none tho worso for it,' Tho friend doubtod and a wagor was made, and the workman called, who, whon askod if ho could drink that buckot (pointing to a largo water bucket) full of boor at one sitting, replied — ' Yell, I don't know ; I lots you know after a vile.'

A FEW days ago there appeared in tho Molbourne Argus an extract from the Pall Mall Gazette giving some particulars 1 regarding tho Whaddou estates, a very valuable iEnglish property (stated, to be | worth £3, 000'. 000, besides accumulated rents and profits paid into Chancery), which has been without an owner ever since the death in 1772 of Thomas James Solby who left no issuo. It-was stated that tho Court will bo asked during -the present year to fettle the pretensions- of a.number of per sons claiming to be Selby's heirs, and that the suit, from tho complications which aro involvod, as well as from the immense sum of money which is ' at stako, will 'be a cause CELEBRE even more notorious than the Ticbbqrne trial, . It appears that one of tho 'claimants to 'this estate is resident in' Victoria, in the person of Mr. C. Aldred, caretaker of the- Albert-park Wesleyan Church. Mr. Aldred, whose eldest son is Mr. H.

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 June 1887
Miscellaneous. In old timos a drunkard was forced to wear tho 'Newcastle Cloak,' which was a cask, ono end being out, and the other having a hole through it sufficient for the offender to pass his head through, by which means the vessel rested on his shoulders. Holes were made in front for his hands. Thus equipped the drunkard was led through tho streets as a spectacle of con tempt. Professor Young of Princeton Collogo, says : — ' Take a railroad from tho oarth to the sun, with a train running 40 miles an hour, without stops, and it would tako about 26a years to mako the journoy.' He estimates the fare at Id a mile to be £372,000. These ' figures kill the projoct. A Now York telogram : states that the head physician of tho Philadelphia Hospi tal reports a marvellous cure of .30 patients,, in the last stages of consumption, solely by ths injections of carbonic acid gas. A belief is expressed by the medical authori ties at the hospital, that an absolute cure for consumption has been f...
The Noble Savage. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 June 1887
The Noble Suvag;e. A London contemporary says : — Dr. Oscar Lenz, tho Austrian who has walked un harmed by savage or . by disease, through tho heart of^Africa, will have to bo dealt with severely at Exeter Hall. Here is the scandalous report which he brings concern ing the net result of missionary operations on tho African coast: — ' The negroes who are taught to read and write mostly become unfit for any manual occupation. They consider themselves as good as a white man, think it undignified to toll, and when not engoged in holding large and noisy prayer meetings, . at which every man wants to take his turn at preaching, they roam about begging, and take it very ill if they cannot live altogether on doles from their white fellow-Christians. The European factories have learned to beware of these men and will not give them employment, so most of them end by relapsing into barbarism and vagabondage, their last state being worse than their first, as :the renegade negro Christian almost...

CABLEGRAMS. LONDON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
CABLEGRAMS. London, Tuesday. The Jubilee day was one continuous scene of excitement. The weather was splendid, and the scene of the procession of the Queen from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey has never been paralleled for brilliancy, wealth, color, and general impressive effect. Myriads of people assembled all along the route and were animated with an unanimous enthusiasm of loyalty. The acclamation was simply a mighty roar. P; is esti visitors to London. A number of Jubilee honors that have been gazetted occupy three columns of the Times newspaper. The Morning Post says that an immense number of persons had to be refused admission to Westminster Abbey. The Roman Catho lics, with the approval of the Queen, arranged to attend a Jubilee service in their own Cathedral. Russia has consented to the appoint ment of a single Regent, not Bulgarian. If this be done she will co-operate with the other powers in the selection of a prince for the throne. 10,000 Liverpool workmen urge the...

TELEGRAL'HIC. rFIiOMOUtt OWN CORRESPONDENT. 1 Sydney, Wednosdav. A terrible rail way 'accident occurred at Peat's ferry, on tho Hawlccsbury line. An excursion train with 300 passengers left Redfern yesterday afternoon, and when going down an incline near the river, the Westinghouse brake failed to act and the train attained a speed of seventy miles an hour. A porter at the station diverted the train on to a siding, or tho whole train and contents would have cone into the river. In conseauence of this action, however, the train dashed into a quantity of contractor's plant, telescoping the carriages and throwing the engine over an embankment into the river, where it lies buried in mud. The engine driver, Thomas Wilson, is buried beneath it. Five persons, Thomas Walker, engine-driver, William Rennie, manager for Amos Brothers, Henry Hawkin, stores department at Eveleigh, and a young man and woman not identified have been killed.

The Tobacco Duty. I A deputation representing tobacco operatives were on Thursday last, intro duced by Mr. Melville, M.P., to the Treasurer, whom they asked to recon sider the decision he had arrived at with regard to the imposition of the excise duty on tobacco. They stated that their, employers, in consequence of the duty, had given them a week's notice to quit employment, and they urged that on this account the Treasurer would adopt their view of the case. Mr. Burns, in reply, practically refused to accede to the re qest, expressing the belief that any want of employment would at the most be only temporary. He added, however, that he would place the matter before the Cabinet.

Grimmen, astrologer' whose prophecy was.published several yenrs ago — originnllv in the Kingstown (Jamaica) Gleaner in 1879— there are to be some events of an enlivening nature. -The ' propheoy,' which, it will he nerai,;.,-does not derive . special .iinpressiveness fro'm'the extent of the astronomical knowledge its author indicates, is as follows: — 'In 1887 the star.df Bethlehem will once more be seen in Cassdophia's Clinir, and it will beaccompan ied by a total eclipse of the sun and moon. This star only mates its appearance every » 10 years. It will illuminate the heavens and ixcred in brilliancy even Jupiter when in opposition to the sun, and therefore nearer to tne earth asd brightest.
