CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

CHAPTSB XVI. Late that night Mr. Perry left his quar ters and strolled out on the walk that bounded the parade. Hp could not sleep; he was feverishly impatient for the coming of another day, that he might start forth on his ride to Dunraven. Few as were the words in which Dr Quin had conveyed the message of invi tation, they were sufficient to set his heart athrob and his pulses bounding with eager ness and delight. Then, too, the annihilation of one portion, at least, cf the 1 mystery' that surrounded the doctor's night visit to Dunraven, the utterly matter-of-fact way in ^vhieh the colonel had shattered that story by his announcement, and the kind and friendly tone in which the doctor had spoken to him all had served to bring about a revulsion of feeling and to remove a great portion of the weight of suspicion and dread with which he had been burdened. He and Lawrence had walked home together, the captain ever and anon bursting into renewed peals of laughter over the utterly absur...

CHAPTER XV. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

CHAKEEB XV. Two days passed without event of any kind. Socially speaking, the garrison was enlivened by the advent of Mrs. Page, and everybody flocked to the Belknaps' quarters in order to do her proper homage.. When Perry called, he asked Parke to go with him and, when the latter seemed ready to leave, the former, disregarding a very palpable hint from the lady of ilie house, picked up his forage-cap and went likewise. For two days the one subject under constant discus sion at the post was the event of Miss Jut land's sudden appearance, her perilous run, and her daring a nd skilful rescue. Every body maintained that Perry ought to be a very proud and happy fellow to have been the hero of such as occasion j but it was very plain that Perrywas neither proud nor any tiling like happy. No one had ever known Mm so silent ana cast down. The talk with Lawrence had helped matters very little. In brief, this was about all the captain could tell mm, and it was all hearsay evidence at best. T...

NOVEL. Dunraven Ranch. (CONTINUED.) CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

N OVE L. + Dunraven Ranch. BY CHARLES KING (in lippincolt'sj. (CONTINUED .) CHAPTEB XIV. The group that gathers there a moment later is as interested a party as the central figures are interesting. Unable to set hier left foot to the ground, and still encircled by Ferry's arm, Miss Maitland stands leaning heavily on his breast. She is very pale for a moment, partly from pain, partly from ex "haustion, for there was no time to free her foot from the stirrup, and the ankle is severely wrenched. Nolan, riderless now and cast loose, stands with lowered head and heaving flanks a sympathetic but proudly heroic looker-on : he knows he has played a part in that rescue. The huge, English hunter is plunging in misery among the mounds a few yards back, his fore-leg broken. One of the troopers has seized his bridle, and another is unstrapping the heavy English, saddle. < Splendidly done!' says the colonel, as he trots carefully up, casting a glance at the fallen cause or all the misc...

The Navigation of the Hawkesbury. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

The Navigation of the Hawkesbury. We reprint the following sound letter from the S.M. HERALD :-Sir,-The Government have taken very active steps to relieve the disabilities under which the Richmond River people labour, through the dangerous condition of the bar. Though the question of the navigation of the Hawkesbury at Windsor is not so serious as that of the Richmond River at Ballina, still the two cases are somewhat analogous. The Richmond River trade is blocked, and communication is cut off from the outside world, unless a very round about route be taken ; whilst the River Hawkes bury is absolutely useless to farmers living down from Windsor, as they cannot trade with the nearest market ; and the residents and business people of Windsor cinnot command that trade which rightfully belongs to them. The northern river has been a source of danger and annoyance for some years, but it is only occasionally that an absolute stoppage is occasioned. Though eventu ally the entrance to the ri...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

TOPICS OF THE DAiY. Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indifferent gooA to either. In a very old copy of the late Charles Harpur's first published book of poems (obtained by me from his eldest son some years ago) I find a dramatic piece occupying 60 pages, entitled " The Bushrangers," the scene of which is laid in and around Windsor. Of course all my readers are aware of the fact that Harpur was a native of this town, and he appears by a glance at his works, and in consequence of the frequent mention there in, to have retained up to the last many fond memories respecting the place of his birth. The first act in " The Bushranger " is laid at the Police Court, Windsor, and the second opens before the Red Lion, a famous hostelry, so it is said, in this town in its early days. The second scene dis closes a meadow near Richmond, and the third the skirt of the forest, with Richmond in the dis tance. In a note at the end of the piece, the writer says :-" Kerrijong i...

Hawkesbury District Agricultural Association. TENTH ANNUAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

Hawkesbury District Agricultural Association. TENTH ANNUAL SHOW. " The glory of the farmer is that in the division of labours it is his part to create. This hard work will always lie done by one kind of man ; not by scheming speculators, nor by soldiers, nor by professors, nor readers of Tennyson ; but by men of endurance, deep-chested, long-winded, tough, alow, sure, and timely."-R. W. EMERSON. On Thursday, the Tenth Annual Show in con nection with the above Association opened on the Hawkesbury Racecourse, and over iooo persons were attracted to the scene. The Hawkesbury Association has made remarkable progress of late years and under the present management, and it is not going too far to say that its Shows are second to none held in the colony. One advan tage the Society possesses is in having one of the finest grounds obtainable for the purpose, with every convenience in the shape of out-buildings, grand-stands, &c., and situated, as it is, within easy distance of the two...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 11 May 1889

VARIETIES. The Mortal Coil .-Fashionable jwing lady, detaching her hair before retiring 'what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil!' Br. Hammond repeats that a man may live to be a hundred if he takes care of him self. But taking care means to sacrifice every thing that is worth living for. When ayoung man aits in the parlour talking nonsense to his best girl, that's capi tal. But' when he has to stay in of evenings after they're married, that's labour. It is love that makes the world go round, we are informed by the poets. It is a some what notable fact that a very limited quan tity of whisky will produce the same effect. An inquirer asks-' Should the young man kneel when he makes the proposal f' This inquirer is evidently a poor specimen. He wul probably have to get down on all-fours and grovel. Don't be dishonest in small matters. If you get found out you won't have much of a chance for larger operations. We are told that breastpins are made larger than last...

William Douglass was called upon to show cause why he should not deliver up to Michael Raper four fishing nets, valued at £/\. Defendant al leged that he was part owner of the property in question.

Literary and Debating Club. On Tuesday evening there was a fair attendance at the general meeting of the above. Mr. Webber was voted to the Chair, and was elected Chair man of Committees and Deputy-Speaker. Mr. Berman moved a vote of censure upon the exist ing Government, and after some slight discussion it was carried on the voices. The Government resigned, and Mr. Berman was called upon to form a Ministry, a task which he accepted. After a brief adjournment, Air. Berman announced that the new Ministry comprised Messrs.

An Old and Respected Identity. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

An Old and Respected Identity. The beautiful Hawkesbury, which proves such a great attraction to visitors to our shores, has fre quently been compared to the " Castled llhine," and not at all to its detriment either. Many eminent men have affirmed this, notably Anthony Trollope, Sala, Boucicault, Fioude and others. There is some resemblance in the two great streams, excepting, of course, that the feudal castles which cap the pinnacles of adjacent hills and nestle in the valleys of the Rhine, are absent here. Kut on the eastern bank of the Hawkesbury, some nine miles from Windsor, the tourist who has his eyes about him-and what tourist is there who travels blindfolded-will come across a huge round tower, built of stone, with embrasures, which has all the appearauce of an old feudal castle. The history of this prominent structure differs materially from that of the old Rhenish strongholds-for whereas the latter were erected for the purposes of defence in the days when rapine and disor...

Steaming on the (Australian) Rhine. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889

Steaming on the (Australian) Rhine. (BY PAUL TWYFORD.) The stewards, I may remark, were most civil and obliging, as well as smart and intelligent. One never knows who's who in Australia. A man may wear moleskins, yet be a millionaire; he may be minus a chew of tobacco, and nary cent in his pocket, yet be the son of an earl. Thus and therefore, I was not surprised when I found that one of our plate-handlers had handled plates of a very different description than dinner plates-for he had been both operator and developer in a first-class photo grapher's establishment in London, and snbsequently in Adelaide. He was a clever j'oung fellow, and his gift of speech should qualify him for membership in a colonial Legislature. He had travelled some, and was simply seeing a little more life as second steward in order to wear out his old clothes. Such is life! a man owns ^500 in Broken Hill scrip to day, and to-morrow he is steward in a coaster, or shovels coal into her furnace-which in no-wise...

Mr. Moore apologised for the unavoidable absence of the Rev. A. R. Blackett and A. Simpson. Mr. Busby delivered a lengthy address, during the course of which alluded to the fact that when their church was opened nearly all the pews were let, but in consequence of removals from the district, the congregation had been greatly di minished. If religion were not progressive it must be retrogressive, an...
