Letters to the Editor. Single Tax v. Protection. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

I Letters to the Editor. THE Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. Single Tax v. Protection. SIR.-The writer signing himself " Griffiths Valua- tion" who, in a recent issue, attempts to oust nie from my position with reference to " Protection y. Single Tax," has but made use of some of the nsual mistakes and objections. Only some, Mr. Editor ; I could myself supply him with another assortment of about the same calibre ; for in- stance-that the tax could be shifted from the land-owner to the shoulders of the tenant-a mis- take made and an objection uttered, if I mistake not, by no less a man than Mr. John See when address- ing his constituents at Grafton. ... I cannot, I think, in this letter answer all his objections or fight all his contentions. However, if I should pass over what in his estimation appears a strong position, I trust he will make a note of it and " pile it on" at some other time. I'm not afraid. The single tax is expedien...

Remarkable Geological Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Remarkable Geological Discovery. A REMARKABLE geological discovery waa made at Summer Island, on tue Macleay, a few days ago. Mr. Inspector Baker exhibited to Messrs. Wilkinson and Slee some oyster shells of very large size, portion of the leg bone and skull of an aborigine, and two ordinary atones, one about five inches long and the other about three. To the ordinary observer there is not mnch in all this, but to all who have studied, and especially those who have followed the drift of Professor Lyell's geographical reasoning, there is a long lesson to be learnt. In the first place two stones of the kind found, could not come to the place referred to-Summer Island -one foot under the surface, by natural means, and hence in all probability they were carried there by men. There was a small mound of large oyster shell, but no made beach as at Clybucca and Spencer's Creek, and hence the digging revealed a I kitchen midden of the Danish type. The natives never dispose of their dead wher...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 2ND, 1889. MINISTERIAL PROFESSIONS AND ACTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

THU Clarence and Richmond Examiner. _1 ESTABLISHED 1859.]_ SATURDAY MoBimro, NOVEMBER 2ÎCD, 1889. MINISTERIAL PROFESSIONS AND ACTIONS. MEMBEÜS OE 4he present Ministry are much given to a desire to pose before the country as Liberals and Free-traders. What the desire to do, however, so far as words are concerned, is quite a different thing to what their actions disclose. Of course it is very diffioult to define what is meant by the term " Liberal," especially when the term is prostituted as it is :by politicians in this country. Many of them are liberal where they are not personally in- terested. When that is the case, their Liber- alism, like all other political principles, is cast to tbc winds. We are not disposed to go quite so far as did the late Lord BEACONSFIELD, in saying that " every scoundrel now-a-days :professe3 himself a Liberal," but still we cannot refrain from condemning that sham Liberalism which is put on and put ol! at pleasure. To be a true Liberal in politics, it ...

CONGREGATIONAL UNION.-The annual session of the Kew South Wales Congregational Union for 1889 was brought to an appropriate close by a public service in Sydney. The Bermon was preached by the Rev. Dr. Bevan, of Melbourne, who gave an eloquent address. Briefly touching upon the uses of conferences of religious bodies as a means of combatting the opposing forces of ' Christianity, he went on to deal with the other methods of preserving and nrging on Christianity. He strongly advocated that Christlike methods should be followed-not so much organisation, not Eo much philosophic 'and scientific arguing, less revolutionary teaching, but more personality and rfilationehio to Christ. AN EXTRAORDINARY MEDIUM.-The town of Rochester (U.S.A.) is mnch excited abont a mnsical medium. This is a Miss Billings, who plays and sings under the influence of a spirit, that of the Italian master Ingrelio (?). Miss Billings seats herself at the piano, where, after having evoked the spirit, and allowed hers...

Some New Stories. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Some New Stories. I AMONG a batch, of stories that has reached us by last mail there are a good many in paper covers. " Pharoah's Daughter," by Edgar Lee, is a some- what far-fetched " story of the ages," as the sub- title modestly puts it. It is dedicated to Rider Haggard, and it tells of a young Egyptian and his lover of the period of the Jewish captivity, whose aged parent found it convenient to put him asleep in the Pyramids for a few hundred years, until the course of his young affections might have a chance to run more smoothly than seemed probable at that time. The writer meeta Hilmy and his wife at the English Derby, and rescues him from the conse- quences of an assault on a negro minstrel, This ia courageous enough as a flight of imagination, but the usual manuscript tells a still more extravagant tale of Hilmy's successive visits to the upper world in the times of Solomon, Paul, William Rufus, Elizabeth, Samuel Johnson, and other characters and personages known to history....

AUSTRALIAN ART.-Is Australian Art really in so deplorable a condition 1 A correspondent, writ- ing from Melbourne, says :-" I wish yon could see some of the productions of the Victorian ' Artists ' -but no, that is unkind of me. No Tottenham Court Road upholsterer would dare to ' furnish ' with them ; no country inn-keeper would have the tem- erity to nse them as sign-boards. Yet ' Protection' in thia colony is carried to such an absurd extent that a recent deputation to the Minister of Customs actually demanded that a tax of £10 should be placed upon every picture imported, so that people might be forced into buying and encouraging the Australian article ! Imagine living in a country of little else than kangaroos, gum trees and straight roads, with your house furnished with these sad representations of them t Happily the Minister .nubbed them very neatly before dismissing them.

Skating Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Skating Carnival. THERE was a fair attendance at the Rink on Tues- day evening to witness the repetition of the Carnival of 2nd inst. There were a fair number in fancy dress, though there were not so many char- acters represented as on former occasions, which may be accounted for in a great measure by the late period of the skating season. A number of the characters were new, and as a whole the fancy dresses were well got np and attractive. The evolutions gone through at previous entertainments of the kind were not omitted, and the grand march was faultlessly executed. The Maypole dance in which 16 skaters took part was a special feature, and a set of Lancers was danced on the rollers« The floor was occupied by the skaters till 10.30 p.m., when the skates were put aside, and dancing concluded the entertainment. The following were the characters represented, as indicated by the cards left at the door : Mrs. Turner, My Sweetheart Miss Hall, Schoolgirl Miss Attwater, Circassian Maid Mi...

Letter to the Editor. The Clarence Harbour Works. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

I Letter to the Editor. I THK Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions .zpresieil by correspondents. ' The Clarence Harbour Works. I SIB.-A rumour has been floating in the air for some days past, and is substantiated by the tele- graphic news on the subject, that the Public Works Committee have suddenly become so satisfied with the excellence of the entrance to the Clarence Eiver (which has hitherto, from a Sydney point of view, been so mnch the reverse) that they appear to have lost sight of the objects of Sir John Coode's scheme as a whole, and that one of its most vital principles is in danger. No doubt it is a fact that at all times, except in extraordinary freshes and south-easterly gales, the river can be entered in daylight by the class of coasting steamers that trade here at present. But I always understood Sir John Coode's scheme to have aimed at far higher results, viz. : firstly, to vastly increase the depth of water at the entrance so as to make it navigable...

SOME AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

SOME AGRICULTURAL NûTES. THE Department of Agriculture, Victoria,, has undertaken the export of butter. Shipments of 50 tons each will be made twice a month by the Orient steamers for the English market. The object sought is to raise the price, and to steady it in the local market. The butter will be carried in cooling chambers, specially adapted. Denmark exports annually 111,000,000 eggs, mostly to England. Eight millions worth of imported pork and bacon is annually consumed in Great Britain. The firm of Chaffey Brothers have imported to Mildura 20,000 orange and lemon trees, 30,000 olive trincheons, and 100,000 vines, all of the beat varieties. These are in addition to what the settlers at Mildura have themselves procured. The Board of Horticulture of California has imported Australian ladybird bngs to fight the coating scale, which is doing so much damage in the orangeries of that State. The scale is the bug's chief article of diet, and this method of saving the orange trees has ...

The Samoan Disasters.-We are ia receipt of a small work on the above, compiled by Mr. J. S. Shearston, from the various reports published immediately after the occurrence. It contains about GO pages, and gives illustrations of the bay of Apia, some of the wrecks, and several different views of the gallant Calliope, which, with her com- mander, have almost immortalised their names in connection with this disastrous affair.

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ ESTABLISHED 1S59.] SATCBDAT MOENDÍG, KOVEJIBEE 2ND, 1889. THE CLAJIEXCE HEADS. Ox Thursday, 24th October, evidence waa taken by the Public Works Committee, at Sydney, from Messrs. C. W. DARLEY, Engineer-in-Chief for Har- bours and Eivers ; Captain HIXSON, R.N., Presi- dent of the Marine Board ; Captain CHUDLEIGH, now one of the Pilota at Sydney Heads ; and Cap- tain HOWAHD, R.N., Marine Surveyor. Mr. DAB LEY gave some interesting details of Sir JOHN COODE'S scheme for the improvement of the entrance and river-taken, doubtless, from the specification. In giving these details, we are dis- posed to think that Mr. DARLEY overlooked the fact that Sir JOHN'S proposals to be covered by his estimate extends almost to Copmanhurst, the head of navigation, nearly 80 miles from the entrance. Mr. DARLEY thought tire breakwater stones would have to be sunk in the sand 20 feet. He thought only a portion of the work-the most important should be gone on with, th...
