Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THURSDAY. Half-holiday.-Thia afternoon the launch Helen was kindly placed at the disposal of the Half holiday Association by Mr. D. See, and a good number of the storekeepers and friends had a very pleasant and enjoyable trip to the Heads. O, many a shaft at random sent. Finds mark the archer little meant. Municipal.-This couplet from Scott's " Lady of the lake," Btrange as it may seem, was seldom or never better illustrated than in your leading article in Tuesday's issue. Purely coincidental, as it would almost appear at first sight, that one article should so aply fit two different Councils on the river, it will upon inquiry prove to be nothing more than a natural consequence. The law of causation denies two things-pure spontaneity of commencement, and incongruity or variation in the sequence of effects. Like causes produces like effects. Admitting thus much, what is there wonderful in the fact that two bodies of repre- sentatives find themselves in positi...

An Amusing Skit. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

An Amusing Skit. "THE Marble Man," by Mr. A. G. Taylor, is an   amusing skit purporting to give the "humors of the life's history" of the remarkable object the exact nature of which excited so active a contro- versy, and so much stimulated the curiosity of the public. It opens with a soliloquy by the "Marble   Man," in which he complains in humorous fashion of the expressions, mingled with ridicule and mis- trust, which have been cast upon him, from which he pleasantly vindicates himself. He then relates how he came into existence at the early part of this century by the cannibalism of some convicts and a gaol chaplin, the survivor of whom was eaten by Bundarra, a native warrior, who then died from repletion in the cave to which he retired after his meal, and was there converted by petrification into his present fossilised form, the result, as the author expresses it, of "the calcareous union of four bodies, three of which had been rendered bone- less, each...

Donaldson, clerk in bankrupt's employ, deposed to going to the Richmond after the disso- lution of the firm. He went over in June and September. On the first occasion saw M'Dongall and Mackay.

Bulk Heads.-An important Marine Board case, Jeanneret v. Hixson, was decided in Sydney on Tuesday, when Mr. Justice Owen delivered judgement in the Equity Court. The plaintiff applied for an injunction against the president of the Marine Board to restrain that body from enforc- ing a new regulation, providing that every harbour Bteamer should in future be provided with water- tight bulkheads for the separation of the fore and after parts. The defendant stated that the regula- tion was considered by the Marine Board to be necessary for the better preservation of life. His Honor ruled that the Marine Board had exceeded its powers in making such a regulation, the Act under which the board obtained its powers provid- ing expressly that steamships built of iron or wood, shall be fitted with watertight compartments, mak no mention of wooden harbour and river steamers. He therefore declared the regulation illegal so far as it related to wooden steamships and granted an injunction restraini...

Lower Clarence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 29 October 1889

I Lower Clarence. I _ _ _ . MONDAY. L. O. Progress Association.-" Progresa" writing to the Advocate on Friday, says that although the above Association " has not been built ' upon the foundation of ceremony and formality, it j ought to be supported by those deeply interested in ' the district's welfare ;" or, in other words, that although not properly constituted it should be I supported for the sake of its ulterior object-the advancement of the district. Although this would be (as Horace puts it) screening misconduct behind a specious name, yet if it could be proved that to support this particular association would advance the interests of the district, few, if any, would withhold that support. The probabilities incline, however, unfortunately to the opposite opinion. We all know the parable of the house built upon sand, and if we do not, we should, That the formation of the association ab i nit io bas been a huge farce, general testimony concurs to prove, although there have not b...

Official Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 29 October 1889

Official Correspondence. TH I: Member for Grafton lias received official notifications to the following effect : Lu reply to representatives made as to the damage done lo the banks of the rivers by floods, a report lias been made by Mr. Maclean detailing the places that bave been Bo.injnred-27 miles to roads and Government land, and 15 miles to private property. The Engineer for Harbours and Rivers states that to protect this length would be au enormous outlay, aud sees nothing to warrant itî being entertained asa whole; probably some few special cases s»ay require separate treatment. One such, close to Graf tun, opposite Elizabeth Island, appears deserving of further investigation; and he bas referred the matter back to Mr. Maclean for fluther survey, levels, aud report. The requested alteration of mail timetable, Grafton to Armidale, and progress of Coif's Harbour and Woolgoolga jetties are referred for report. The Engineer for Harbours and Eivers in reference to a huiisestiou fro...

Lawrence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 29 October 1889

Lawrence. L__,__i_-i.-", ?". ". MONDAY. Ecclesiastical.-The Middle Clarence parish of the Presbyterian Church, at present enjoying the ministrations of the Rev. J, Easton Browne, M.A., has commenced to assume its just proportions. Under his zeal, energy, and watchful pastoral care, she has been raised in a very brief period to a worthy position among the sister churches. From attendance on several occasions at divine service, I am in a position to state that the Rev. gentleman brings to bear on his pulpit utterances, accurate acquaintance with the German theological and philosophical literature of the age, while he adds to his deliberations, reflections on social problems and practical issues of every-day life, and no doubt his three years travel in" Alaska, British Columbia, Canada, the U.S.A., Mexico, and European tour have been the means of him making many minute examinations. In theology he is ultra-Calvanistic ; in the pulpit or on the platform, an orator. His sermons are faith...

Ulmarra. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 29 October 1889

Ulmarra. MONDAY. Dogs.-What a pity it is that the Act as regarda these animals is not in force here. We have dogs of every size, breed and description, and in vast numbers ; in fact, a stranger entering the town must be forcibly reminded at times of an Indian village by the innumerable curs he will meet with. After dark a black's camp is nothing to it for howling and yelping, night being simply rendered hideous. I think if the provisions of the Act were introduced down here, the revenue would either be much enriched thereby, or Ulmarra rid of a great nuisance ; probably the latter. On Dit.-A concert in aid.of our brass band is in course of rehearsal, and it is said that the success of the affair is assured. Our band has been re-organised, under the management of Mr. Bandmaster Amos, and bids fair to become a real acquisition to the town ; but of course these things are expensive to start, and require supporting ; therefore I wish every success to the concert.

Australian Support to Dock Laborers. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 29 October 1889

Australian Support to Dock Laborers. ! THE Standard says ;-<s The very large earns sent I to Messrs. Barns and Tillettfrom Australia, though they show the wealth and generosity of the Trade Societies of New South Wales and Victoria, must we think, have to a certain extent been given under a misapprehension. It is stated that, alto- gether, from ten to fifteen thousand pounds have been collected in onr Australian colonies and trans \ mitted to the managers of the strike. For bodies which, though rich and prosperous, do not contain i any very large number of members, such donations ' are indeed remarkable. No doubt, the Australian j artisans are anxious to support the cause of labour wherever and however possible, and are inclined I to think that all those who are out on strike are deserving of sympathy. This feeling, however, is not enough to explain the curious fact that, while many far more important English labour move- ments have been passed over without notice by, and...

Gambling Ventures I Mr. HENRY VABLEY writes to the Postmaster- ! General. Sir,-Permit me to call yonr attention to the enclosed circular, which I am informed has been sent to all the business men and shopkeepers ia Parramatta. You will observe that, it is a very spacious and attractive racing programme, and from the large amount (£50,000) it is clearly intended for a very wide circulation. Further, it will be noticed that the Post-office is to be used as the effective medium for the success of this gamb- ling venture, and it is certainly true that but for the Post-office thousands of these poor dupes could not be got at by these gamblers. Beyond this the man who signs the paper, makes the General Post office practically his head-quarters. May I ask you, sir, if this attempt to secure the safety, secrecy and security of the invaluable institution over which you preside is not a flagrant abuse of its functions 1 Well may gambling prevail if the prestige and respectability of the Gener...
