THE Buwkesburg Chronicle. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 2, 1881. THOUGHTS ON COMMON PROVERBS. "Empty vessels make most sound." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
THE IMttsiraq Clprtirlf-. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 2, ISSI. THOUGHTS ON COMMON PROVERBS. " Empty vessels make most sound." PROVERBS are short pithy sayings meant to convey some valuable lesson in a few words Taken by themselves, they may "not perhaps give much information, but when applied with a due regard to suitability to the various occurrences of daily life they ex- hibit all the qualities of pointedness, logic, and wisdom. Suppose the above proverb be applied to some men in the.ir public career, how many examples of " empty vessels" will bc f »und ? See the man who is always envious to take the chair at public meetings. He first hiuts that he would like thé 'position ; if that does not succeed, he becomes bolder, and finally asks for it. After the object he covets is obtained, he will make a self-laudatory speech ; but does he come down with a large subscription, or is £ny real benefit derived from his prominence on the occasion ? Very seldom it is the rase that a...

CLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
CLIPS. WHAT M A " TON ?"-Is it not time tfcat some uniform measurement were introduced in the metal trade ? At present the vagaries of a '* ton" are most amusing. Thus, a smelter's ton of copper ore is 21 cwt., and weighs 2352 lbs., the manufactured copper being si lld at 2440 lbs. to the ton. Coke for a run out fire is bought 2&lt;>00 lbs. to the ton. A ton of pig iron for a forge is 2268 lbs., blooms being sold at 2464 lbs. to the ton, and 27o0 i bs. constituting a ton of refined metals. Coals on the American continent are bought at 2240 lbs. to the ton, and retailed at 2000 lbs. to the ton. In England they are always bought and sold at 2240 lbs., except at New- castle, where they are shipped by the chaldron of 30 cwt. of 338» lbs., and Newcastle coals a-e to-day so bought arid sold in Quebec, Canada. Would it not be best to adopt the so-called metre-ton (of 1000 kilogrammes) of the Eui opean Continent? But then this [ would inevitably lead to the final adoption of j th...
SACKVILLE REACH. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
SACKVILLE BEACH. The children attending the public school at Sack- ville Reach were, on Monday last, treated to a pic- nic. This school is under the supervision of Mr. L. M. B. Mills, and the Government have in him an efficient officer. He is a very painstaking and systematic teacher, and we learn has given every satisfaction since he has been in charge of this school. It is principally owin ;to his exertions that the feast was got up. He also obtained a nice lot of books, as prizes for the cnildren, by means of subscriptions given by stray visitors to the school. Among others who contributed may be mentioned Mr. A. Bowman, M.L.A., and Mr. J. Robinson, of Queensland, each of whom gave £1. Mr. Mills is to be commended for his alacrity in thus looking after the interests of his pupils. He is evidently a finn believer in thc trite aphorism, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." The children, having heard that something good was in store for them at mid-winter, have been on -the...

ORTHODOXY IN AN INFIDEL'S CREED. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
ORTHODOXY IN AN INFIDEL'S CREED. COLOXKL Ingersoll is a well-known leader amoL¿ the so-called Infidel party in Aine r"ua. Thor-' are s >me very orthodox expres- sions uB'iJ in his last lecture, " What must we >L>» t ? be saved?" which has been com- mented upon in a tract by W. J. Burdett, pud noticed iu the Christian Guardin which aa1. '.-"We have read the rr.ict, and we have read the entire lecture. If this is truly Ingersoll's creed, the Colonel isn't so far out of the way. He is coming round, mayb«. Ile manafffs to get considerable Scripture in Iiis creod, aa he sets it forth. Thor« is lots of hope ; in fact, there is a great deal of certainty for the Colonel. We subjoin a few articles of this great man's creed, just to show from what book he gets his declara- tion of i.tith." And here follow some of the extracts, and the way the Guardian answers them : " üunost industry is as good as pious idleness.'-Ingersoll. " Well, that's all right. That's orthodox. The Bible says t...
SPARES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
SPARES. Plagiarists are abroad! Ob, Oh, Oh! Who are they ? Don't speak all at once ! Just a few now; here's a jumble. Straw hats, creatures, tigers, humbugs, Hostera lians, Crime's John's et hoe genus om ne-any of these- tally to the description ? Yah ! ! ! Walking-canes, it appears, are not fash- ionable iu Windsor, but they're useful. Depends, too, upon circumstances. Now there's nothing offensive to one's prejudices in a BOOK-MA&K, and it's a very useful thing where a large book has to be turned over for references. Now then, young ladies, dont lose the opportunity-a little innocent competition, and the thing's done. Let us see what a week can do in this matter. Index not needed. It's a fact ; native merit has often to give place to the foreigner. A British or Irish voice has to make way for an Italian or German Squaller ; consequently our Paddies transmogrify themselves into Signors, and our; Johns into Jlerrs. Such is hie ! Cold weather has set in at the Necropolis, wit...
PINS. "Cum grano salis." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
PINS. " Cum grano salis." WHEN parsons go in for a little slang-whang- ing, what is to become of the common herd the laymen ? This has been suggested by the S. M. Herald's report of a shindv that occurred at the Anglican Synod the othei day. Says the Herald, " the retort courteous was given between two members of the Synod :" that is, one gentleman said " he'd take his oath in a court of law that the other did not say so and so;" the other was prepared, in a court of law, to stake his veracity against that of t'other 'un. Well, now, this you're another sort of business don't sound neigh- bourly-much less christiaulike ; and gentle- men who are supposed to teach others the correct thing, should not blacken each other by charges of this kind. Remember, my dear friends, what Scripture says ab&lt;iut "him whtí¿ cal le th his brother a li¡«, etc. , »"^., mj? beloved brethen, put a curb upon your tam- pers-especially in your parliament, where you are met for the better governance ...
LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 2 July 1881
LOCAL AND GENERAL. ESSAY ON CKOMWKLL.-Ry an oversight; the rejioit of the last meeting of the Mutual Improvement Society was omitted from our issue of the 25th Juiic. A large number of l.idies and gentlemen met on the ordinary night, June 21st, to he;:r an essay on Oliver Cromwell, read hy Mr. ?»iarti:i. Tue essav, which was a remark nhl y well written one, was read in that loud ar.d firm voice which many of the members would do well to endeavour to copy, for many a good paper had been spoiled by bad reining. Though the essayist hardly confined himself to Oliver ('romwell sufficiently, yet he pro- vided a very instructive and interesting paper. Ile traced the history of England previously to and during the Commonwealth, but was rather severe on the Sluarts. ile spoke in high terms of Cromwell af " the right man in the right place " for the time, but by no means advocated regicide, and he was most happy in his description of the manners and speech of the Puritans. There was no cri- t...
Original Poetry. THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 9 July 1881
Original Poetry. THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1881. The morn is fair, the little boat Is launched upon the waves ; The breeze is soft, the river calm, No angry tempest raves. Now skip on board the jovial three Two fair maids and the sire ; The sail is spread, away they float Each happy heart's desire. They leave behind their dearest friends, And home so fair and bright ; The glad good-bye is breathed in smiles To meet again to-night. And as they trace the winding track Of calm unruffled blue. Rich cornfields mantle o'er the banks The lark sings sweetly too. The merry laugh, the cheerful song, And light dash of the oar, Are borne UJKHI the fragrant breeze, That fans the fertile shore. They land upon the busy wharf Beside the silver strand ; Above which old Windsor towers Magnificently grand. Familiar faces greet them here, Outstretched are loving arms ; Affections fond embrace ensues With all its own sweet charms. Lovers glowing fountain floods each breast, The homely jest is passed ; Time ...

Each of the four seasons brings in its train some hurt to the haman system. Spring is prone to stir up the biliary secretions. Summer to enervate the frame and superinduce lassitude. The dews of autumn are known to be deleterious, and the in- clemency and sudden severe changes of winter try the best constitutions. It is therefore both politic and prudent to keep on hand invariably a good supply of Udolpho Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps. T. MATTHEW'S CHURCH OF ENGLAND SCHOOLHOUSE. Rev. A.

KILLARNEY RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 9 July 1881
KILLARNEY RACES. RACES were held at Killarney on the 2nd July. This little gathering was got up by a^ few sportsmen in the district-just for the love of the thing, it may be presumed. That's neither here nor there, however ; suffice it to say that at a pretty early hour the prads well wrapped in their cloths were on their way to the course. Horsemen in troops, footmen in companies, and vehicles in num- bers, all en route for the classic spot-but why Killarney ? Very many years ago-long be* fore the Flood-not the Deluge-there might have been a distant likeness to the famed spot in Erin's Isle ; but things are changed, or we fail to see things as " ithers see'em," and un hesitatingly pronounce " Killarney " a sell. We don't say the races were a sell, having no knowledge of the subject, and those who had took care to keep it to themselves-as far as we were concerned. To come to the point ; there was a booth on the ground where thirsty souls could take in tanglefoot at sixpence a nobble...
