Lines from a Pilgrim. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
Lines from a Pilgrim. Tub groat solemn and sole festival of our gracious terrestrial Queeu boing over, I took a solitary ramble a few miles up the North Arm to nav n visit, lonir deferred, to old frinndn. Viv whom I bad been hospitably entertained until yestorday. While there, and to it, I had an opportunity of observing- many ohnngos, and most of these had taken place where early associations were centred, and all seemed to bo in the maroh of progress and improvoment, however, I might feel myself concerning my own condition. Accompanied by my host (Mr. Crisp), I took a quiet ride on Sunday afternoon out beyond the old Pelican Tree station, and a crowd of over whehninir feelings were roused up and smothered. At this partioular season of the year tho aspect of things in general is anything but oheering to look upon, but despite this, and the general dopreasion prevailing, loss of erops, cattle, and other valuables in domestic ooonomy, and the war of the elements with man, still it wa...

CORAKI POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
COIIAM1 POLICE COURT. Part of the business that would have come before tbe Court on Monday last were some Small Debts cases and applications for hawker's licenses, all of which were, however, postponed until sufficient jus tices could be got together to deal with them ; one only, Mr. W. Yabsley, being on the bench. It is now nearly twelve months since thenamesof twolocal gentle men were submitted to be placed on tbe Commission of the Peace, and notwith standing several urgent reminders have been since forwarded in respect of these appointments, the only answer that can be got iB, that the present Government seem averse to adding to the list of justices at present Over and over again have we pointed out in reports, para graphs, and otherwise, the necessity for immediately supplementing our local justiciary in justice to the people. We have not advocated any ornamental ad ditions thereto and have had some diffi culty in finding useful ones, and it does seem hard that an article for wh...
The Anglo-Turkish Convention. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
The Anglo-Turkish 1'onventlon. The Morning Post contains a statemont that France li-is threatened to break off diplomatic relations with the Porte, and to resume her claims to the guardianship of the Holy Places in Palestine if the recent convention between Great Britain and Turkey should be ratified by the Sul tan. It is further announced that Russia demands as recompense for agreeing to the convention, liberty to extend her territory in the direction of Erzeroum. The Porte is stated by the Post to have asked the British Government whether in the event of the present convention being ratified, they will be prepared to fulfil the terms of the Cyprus Conven tion of 1778, by which, under certain circumstances, Asiatic Turkey would be placed under British protection, and be defended if necessary by force of arms.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE RICHMOND RIVER HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
to THB BDrro* OF TBS BHHKOffD BXVXB HHITO. Sib, — Last Saturday evening, at a quarter past Bix, someone fired a gun off close to my house. Two ot our little girls were just gone out at the time, and they saw the flash of the gun, and heard tbe pellets rattling a oove tneir needs on tne sno root. Thev came screaming in, saying someone tried to shoot them. I toll yon, sir, they got a . fright Someone, I suppose, had been out possum shooting, and the oharge having passed beyond tne mark aimed at, in failing some of it foil on tha house. I think, Mr. Editor, when people go shooting at night time, especially near house*, they should get between the/houses and the objeot they are aiming at^ and not to have it between them ana the houses, for it is not pleasant to hear the shot, no matter how small it may be, rattling about the house. There vas no harm done, save, the fright the little ones got They are for getting it already, but I am afraid it will be a whife before they will go out in t...
Colored Dorkings. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
Colored Dorkings. | Dorkings, to a great extent, aro a neglec ted breed. While nearly every other breed is, or has been pushed in this country with a vigor characteristic of our people, our breeders seem to have ignored the Dorkings. It seems to us that there is a field comparatively un occupied, and one that would yields gratifying returns. The Dorking matures the most rapidly of any known breed, and hence is especi ally valuable for those who want to get early chicks into tbe market, while prices are high. They lay freely, large, rich eggs, and maintain their productive ness much lator in life than almost any other fowl. .Would it not pay to give more atten tion to this breed, especially as there seems to bo a demand for good stock in excess of the supply 1 — American Paper.

The Bourke abduction Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
The Bourke tbduetion Case. A telegram from Bourke says: — Judge Backhouse opened the Quarter Sessions here this morning. Father Huggard, who was concerned in the Bourke Con vent abduction, case, .failed to appear when called on. In ordering his bail to be estreated, the Judge said it seemed as if Father Huggard had applied for leave to appeal to the Privy Council, for the purpose of allowing himself time to escape. Father D. O'Kennedy, of Car coar, and J. G. Keane, storekeeper, of Nyngan, then paid £100 each as bail money.
The Steamer Lilian Ashore at Part Macquarie. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
The Steamer Lilian Ashore at JPort Macquarie. Tiie steamer Lilian, in attempting to cross the bar at about 10 o'clock on Sat urday night, got ashore on the rocks abreast of tho goal, near whore the steamer Josephino was wrecked two years ago. It appears that the captain, atcer waiting cere several uays, received instructions to proceed to Sydney at once. Steam was got up and the attempt was made to cross the bar. By some means he got out of his course, although there was abundance of water on the bar to float, a vessel of large dimensions. The propellor came in contact with the r ocks on the southern sid of the harbour, and was consequently rendered., useless. Al though the water was very smooth at the time, the slight bumping she got, added to the fact that the vessel was loaded with 60 tons of coal, knocked a hole in the bottom, and the fore compartment soon filled. No whistle was blown, nor was any alarm made when the steamer struck, but she was seen by one of the crew at the pil...
A Proper King. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 8 July 1887
A Proper King. Speaking of the feeliuga of the King of Italy towards his subjects the Pall Mall Gazette says : — Tho King of Italy is not of the same mind as either the late un happy Ludwig of Bavaria or the Queen of England. King Humbert objects to taking his pleasures at shows and Exhib itions as a solitary; he likes his people to be present and share them with him. At the opening of the exhibition at Yen ice the King gave expression to his dis appointment at the loneliness and empti ness of the halls. An official told him that the public had been kept out froiri loyal consideration for the comfort of himself and the Queen. 'I am sorry for this,' said, his Majesty, ' though you have done it in good part j it is my belief that the King belongs to the people as well as the people to the King.' Before leaving the Exhibition he recurred to the subject, again expressing his deep regret. ' I hope that none of you believe,' said he^ ' that I am the sort of man who is shy of being seen am...
