NOTES ON NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
NOTES ON NEWS. During llie course of the Debating Society's late meeting, mention was made of the fact that one or two croakers had predicted the speedy demise of that institution. We have no doubt they did. In every town we find that there are some few people who always stand out from organizations of this kind, and who are ready to throw a wet blanket upon them whenever the opportunity occurs. Only the other night we heard of an " intelligent " young man-one who ought to know better, but who apparently does not-counselling another not to attend the meet ings of the Debating Society, as he would ' only make a fool of himself like the others did." This is the sort of intelligent opposition against which the Society and its BONA FIDE members have to contend. If people who attend debating societies are fools, then some of the greatest men of the day-statesmen, litterateurs, clergymen, &c., must plead guilty ; but at the same time it is rather rough that this individual, who ce...
Late Richmond News. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
Late Richmond News. A PARTING GIFT.-Daring the past week I was shown a handsome silver nickel afternoon tea trav, to be presented to our late Post and Tele graph Master, Mr. G. A. Reid, who was promoted to a similar position at St. Leonards. The article is of a very neat design, and is inscribed, "To George Alfred Reid, Esq., from a few of his Rich mond friends ; May, 1889." Mr. T. H. F. Griffin, of the Commercial Bank, originated the idea for presenting Mr. Reid with this handsome little article, in recognition of his many efforts to pro mote the interests of the town during his many years sojourn here. Tlie presentation will be made in Sydney, I understand, by a gentleman in the G.eneral Post Office. THE LVTK SHOW.-It is a usual thing for any large gathering to attract a few of the larrikin tribe, and this was the case whilst the H.D.A. Association's Show was being held at Clarendon last week. Mr. Guest has, in his position of Secretary, no sinecure, and he is looked upon as the g...

The Late J. A. Cuneen. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
The Late J. A. Cuneen. The following letter from the Hon. D. Buchanan, M.L.C., to the widow of tho late J A Cuneen, will be read with interest: "Sydney. 4tli May, 1889, WcntwoL'th Court-Chambers. Dear Mis. Cuneen, I, in common with all your late husbrnd's friends, received the new* of his sad death with feelings of extreme regret. I had known the late Mr. Cuneen for over thirty years, and had ma y opportunities of judging of his intellect and character during all that time. I entered public life with him, and sat in Parliament foranany years. The late Mr. Cuneen took a very high position in the Parliament of the country, and held it for many years from 1860, the year he appeared there. He was an admirable Bpeaker, taking a prominent part in all debates. He spoke with great earnestness, eloquence, and power; and on questions connected with the land laws of the country he had no superior in the House ; and I am very sure that both Sir John Robertson and Mr. Garrett will bear me out in...
A Mormon Settlement in New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
A Mormon Settlement in New South Wales. KITTEN KOR THE GAZETTE BY ASMODEUS ] The I'UROKE created bv the establishment of a now religion in that land of wonders, the United States ot America, will-be vividly remembered by the older portion of this generation; while of late years the proselytising that was so extensively carried on in the United Kingdom and the Conti nent of Kurope on behalf of the "Latter Day Saints" forms a marked episode in the history of tho later half of the nineteenth century. The doctrines propounded by Joe Smith, his alleged miraculors powers, and the publication of the work known as the Mormon Bible, with its curious travesty of Scripture, bold innovation, and the singular grasp of the foibles and passions of human nature displayed by its unknown author or authors, who, from their style of diction and evi dent unacquaintance with the facts of even modern, let alone ancient history, must have been comparatively illiterme men - these doctrines exercis :d a sing...
Riverstone. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
Riverstone. A youth, whose name we have not been able to glean, whilst cutting scrub in the vicinity of Riverstone last Saturday, managed to inflict a severe wound on his right foot. He came into town on horseback, and was attended to by Dr. Gibsop. v Friends of Misses Phelps will be pleased to hear that these two young ladies are on a fair way towards recovery from the serious injuries which they received by being thrown out of a buggy last week. The younger lady of the two was most seriously injured, she having concussion of the brain, besides a severe shaking, and it is said that she will not be able to leave her room for some time. Notice has been given that a public meeting will be held at Ireland's Hotel to-night (Saturday), for the purpose of taking steps to form a football team. A skating rink was opened in the Cosmopolitan Hall on Tuesday night, and under the care and supervision of our energetic friends, Messrs. Links and Doyle, it should prove successful. A good number of...
Is a Free Selector a Freeholder? [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
Is a Free Selector a Freeholder ? At the Revision Court on Friday, an application for enrolment was received from Thomas Harrison, residing at Gordon, in another electorate, whose claim was based on the ground that he was pos sessed of a conditional purchase in the parish of Maroota, Hawkesbnry Electorate. The Police Magistrate held that the claim was no good, inasmuch as the applicant was not a resident, leaseholder, or freeholder. Mr. Moses contended 1 that the question to decide was whether the c.p. was of the required value to give qualification, viz., £100, aud if it were so, and the c.p. (320ac) had been confirmed, then the applicant was entitled to a vote. The records showed that the c.p. had been applied for this year, that a deposit of 4s per acre had been paid, but that the application was not confimed, never having been before the Land Board. Mr. Holland looked upon the applicant as a freeholder; the land was his property so long as hp fulfilled the conditions. Constable ...
COMPENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
COMPENSATION. One womim in fura and v«lvets ; Another in squalid rags; One rolled by in her stately carriage, The other stood on the flags. One woman, alone in her carriage ; By the other, a little child, Who, watching the prancing horses, Looked up in her face and Btniled. She stooped to her boy and kissed him, And gave him a hoarded orust; The other had just leftoostly bloomB Where her one son lay in the dust. One back tc her darkened mansion Wealth cannot hold death at bay ! One back to the hut where labour Brought bread for the coming day. Perhaps, as over the sand of life Time's great tide ebbB and flows, More fates among us ore equal Than their outward seeming shows, -All the Fear Round.

LADIES' COLUMN. Fashions Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
LADIES' COLUMN. Fashions Fancies. Beads are still worn in profusion that would delight the untutored squaw. Redingote tea-gowns are enjoying great popularity, and their simplicity of style is at present perfect. There is a rage for gold and silver tinsel wrought into rich pesuementerie of a much lighter and mora delicate description than of previous years. In examining the large invoices of elegant French gowns the preponderance of neutral tints in pearl, dove, winter sky, beige fawn, silver and pearl is noticeable. Among the elegant Parisian importations are black Chantillylace bodices in Jersey style, with Directoire revers, deep cape collar and cuffs of white Duchesse point. Combinations of two fabrics are more per sistently used than ever, and much of the attractive and novel variety in the gowning of the present season is owing to such com bination. Buttons are likely to be very much en evi dence on handsome bodices, going straigh t down the front from the neok to the belt or b...
Concerning Rare Wines. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
Concerning Bare Wines. There are some wines which very few people drink; not only because they are scarce and dear, hut because they have a smack that ifc not to the' general taste. Laorima Ohristi is sipped by travellers at Naples, but few flasks find their way far from theiirnatiVfe slopes ,of Vesuvius. The white wine of' JitttitiQatt, )s&6r^d\tb 1th$ memory (bf the ifcings of Navatfce, add always loted by JLenery IV of France, cannot' be bought. Every drop is "bespoken year^ before by far sighted, legitimate consumers. It is hard,, even in Vienna or Preisburg, to buy one of thbse quaint bottles of white gla^ and bul bous, shape that holds an imperial pint of t iimperial Tokay. It is dearer, bulk for, bulk, rtimn any wine in the world. It it almost as etrbtigtis French brandy, almost as substan tial as fiirup, and is in fact only a superior raisin, luscioufc and cloying. . But it is a Porphyroge^its, bbrn to grandeur. Those who grew m grapeB are'Princes, whose Hungarian te...
OLD SAWS IN RHYME. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 May 1889
OLD SAWS IN RHYME. Actions speak louder tlian words ever do : Tou can't eat your cake and hold on t6 it, too. When the cat is away then the little mice play. When there is a will there is always a way. One's deep in the mud as other in mire; Don't jump from the frying into the fire. There's no use crying pver miljc that is spilt; No accuser is needed by conscience of guilt. There must be some fire wherever is smoke; The pitcher goes oft to the well till its broke. By rogues facing out honest men get their due; Whoever it fits he must put on the shoe. All work andno play will make Jack a dull boy A thing of much beauty is ever a joy. A half loaf is better than no bread at all; And pride always goeth before a sad fall. Utica Herald. The Czar of Russia is an enormous eater. He takes from two to three pounds of solid meat and an average of two quarts of cham pagne for luncheon, with a dinner big in pro portion. Rev.

When can you come, and when will you P I swear that I will make out the time to look with you on old Logier's quarters, and drink a bottle with you at Gerolt's, where they once would not allow you to put your slender legs upon a chair. Let politics be hanged and come to see me. I promise that the Union Jack shall wave over our house, and conversation and the best old hook shall pour damnation upon the rebels. Do not forget old friends, neither their wives, as mine wishes nearly as ardently aB myself to see you, or at least to see as quickly as possible a word of your hand writing.
