Letters to the Editor. Evidence re Clarence Heads. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Letters to the Editor. Evidence re Clarence Heads. I SIR.-I cannot believe that the condensed report of Captain Bracegirdle's evidence before the Public Works Committee re the works at the entrance, conveys a correct view ; for the Captain, when trading to the Clarence, was a very strong advocate in the matter, and went as far as to draw a plan, setting forth his ideas as to what should be done at the entrance. I feel sure the full text of the evi dence would give a different version to that pub- lished. The port is all very well for the present monopoly ; but if it were improved as to admit such boats as those trading between Sydney and New- castle to enter, we should enjoy a considerable advantage. In place of paying the present freight on maize, it would be carried for 1B, and probably les3. And passengers would be carried at a reason- able rate, and in considerably lesa time. I believe that had the entrance been in a better state than it is, one of the Newcastle Steam Company's ...

Political and Social Letter. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Political and Social Letter. Î BY our. S. C. SYDNEY, SATURDAY. SIR HENRY PARKES' despatch on the subject of Australian federation was published in yesterday's papers. It embodies the ideas expressed by him during the course of an interview which he had with a Brisbane journalist when he was in Queens- land last week. The Federal Constitution, accord- ing to Sir Henry Parkes, shonld be similar to that of the Dominion of Canada. If the scheme is adopted the Dominion Parliament would legislate on all national matters, including the tariff. The fact, therefore, that the Premier has proposed it, indicates that he is willing that New South Wales should take to its breast the hated " creature " Pro- tection, for he must be aware that since all the Australian self-governing colonies except our own have adopted Protection, the proposed National Parliament would unquestionably declare for that policy. But this is characteristic of Sir Henry Parkes. At all times he has been ready to sacrifice ...

Echoes and Opinions. MINISTERIAL ACTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Echoes and Opinions. SlIXISTEllIAL ACTIO XS. I IP one watches the actions of Ministers, he cannot but be struck with the readiness with which a Minister will take credit for some alleged new departure in the administration of the Department over which Fate, in the shape of a hasty vote, has called upon him to preside. Equally noticeable is the promptitude with which such a Minister, when something the Department has done does not quite meet popular approval, seeks to cast the dishonor attaching to it upon some one else. A noticeable instance of this character has recently occurred in connection with the MINISTER and Department of Public Instruction. Of course, we are fully aware that the political head of any of the great public Departments has very little to do-and very pro- perly so-with the internal working thereof : all that sort of business is managed by the permanent officers. When it happens that the Department has been maturing a scheme affecting some of those internal detai...

Mining News. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Mining News. A NOTICE at the Court House states that Johu Byan and John Miller have discovered alluvial gold at Marengo station, 2.V miles in a westerly direction from E. Blaxland's 60-acre e.p., and 20 miles southerly from Dalmorton. The find is on slate formation, 70 feet from the surface, the yield loz. Gdwts. 3gr3. gold to the load of washdirt. The width already proved is 1G feet, and the wash is one foot thick. The sinking is through 15 feet of alluvial and 45 feet of basalt. Mr. Cadell has taken up some ground at Black Slate Creek, 10 miles from Dalmorton, and is driv- ing a tunnel into the ground which contains a number of small reefs. The two tons of stone forwarded from Walker and Laird's claim, Mann Kiver, yielded in Mel- bourne 3ozs. Odwts per ton, and the gold realised the satisfactory return of £4 4s per ounce.

Death by Drowning. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Death by Drowning. AN inquest was held yesterday morning before Slr. A. L. McDougall, coioner, and a jury of 12, touching the death of Thomas Joseph, 13 years of age, son of Mr. Robert Robinson, boarding-house keeper, Pound-street. Deceased was sent by his parents to Sunday schosl, instead of which, however, he and about six others went in for a swim at a place known as George the fisherman's wharf, a little below See and Co's, wharf. He jumped off the point of a log into eight feet of water. He rose once, went down again, and one of the lads named William Robertson, who was dressing, immediately went to the rescue, took hold of the drowning lad, who caught hold of his rescuer, butneither retained their grasp, and Robinson sank. Another boy named Hamilton Maund also attempted to rescue the lad, but was dragged under by Robertson, while the latter was drawn under by deceased. Two men. Robert Ayres aud another, who were passing in a boat, heard the alarms of the boys, and dived for th...

The Wonders of the Firmament. (From the London Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

The "Wonders of the Firmament. ! _ i (From the London Baili/ Telegraph.) :i Two THINGS," said the German philosopher Kant. " fill me with awe-the moral sense in man, and the starry firmament." Wonderful, indeed, and solemn to every eye, is the spectacle of the vault of Heaven, spangled every clear night with innum- erable orbs of greater or less lustre. Yet what the unassisted eye discerns, and what even the astrono- mer's glass reveals in addition, is but a small portion of the glory of the living and moving universe to which we are neighbours amid the infinite fields of space. Mr. Baker, of Dulwich College, has given chemical science a new discovery to meditate upon, in the strange fact that dried oxygen becomes unable to support the combustion of even charcoal or phosphorus ; Mr. Bidwell showed 1 how light can magnetise iron ; and Mr. dayden I exhibited a most ingenious model of the earth's ! surface, a sort of Mercator's map, with real water, on which gusts from a bellows produc...

Pauper Immigrants. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Pauper Immigrants. THE select committee of the House of Commons on the immigration and emigration of foreigners to and from the United Kingdom, do not recommend legislation limiting the importation of continental paupers into the United Kingdom. They, how- ever, contemplate the possibility that restrictive legislation may become necessary in the future, " in view of the crowded condition of our great towns, the extreme pressure of existence among the poorer part of the population, and the tendency of destitute foreigners to reduce still lower the social and material condition of oar own poor." In the appendix to the report there is au interesting account of the conclusions arrived at by the authorities of the United States respecting the effect of the foreign immigration. The Americans have no objection to the Britishers and the Irish, or even to the Poles, but they draw the line at the Italians and Hungarians. Centuries of oppression seem to have had a far other effect upon these p...

A New Life-saving Raft. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

A New Life-saving Raft. CAPTAIN DREVAH, who for many years was master of the ship Norfolk, trading between London and Sydney, has devoted a considerable portion of his time to perfecting a life-saving raft, and has at length succeeded in producing a contrivance which for simplicity of design and easy working seems to be very effective. On Saturday last the captain gave an exhibition of the way to use his own novel raft in the waters of the ocean opposite the Bondi Aquarium. The steamer Bee was riding in the Bay when Captain Drevar prepared to put his apparatus together. In a few minutes he had the contriv- ance, which simply consisted of four oars lashed round a cask, in readiness, and threw it overboard; then, armed with a double canoe paddle, he entered it, and rode the waves gallantly towards the shore. After he had been about a quarter of an hour on his way the steady north-east wind, which had been blowing all the afternoon, insreased in viol- ence to such an extent that it was...

Armidale Snubbed by the Premier [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Armidale Snubbed bv the Premier ON the arrival of the Premier by special train at Armidale, the Mayor with several others were present on the platform to receive him. The Premier, who came out of his carriage, was intro- duced to the members of the deputation. The Premier aft.T asking how they were getting on in Armidale, enquired for two private friends, and having found them, he at once retired from public view and spent about fifteen minutes in his carriage that mighc have been devoted to the public. An inquisitive member of the deputation venturing to peep into the sanctum that contained the Premier of New South Wales, found him deeply immersed in the pages of a newspaper. Considering the importance of Armidale, its rapid increase in popu tion, and its late wonderful development of the mineral resources of the surrounding district, we consider the Fremier might have displayed a little more interest in passing through it. As for the members cf the Deputation who waited upon the P...

Will the Single Tax Injure the Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Will the Single Tax Injure the Farmer. SIB.-In continuation of my correspondence of last issue. " G.V." tells me that I in my first letter quoted figures, but did not calculate them. Very well, "G.V. ;" oh, very well, indeed 1 He quotes from me as follows :-A forty-acre farm, unimproved value £20 per acre ; improved value, £30 per acre. Thus, £800 unimproved value and £800 improved value. This is £1600 paid for improvements and all. I would remind my opponent that this might not be BO. The £S00 worth of improvements certainly represents the labour of the farmer, and he has a right to his labour. Bnt 30 years ago he may only have paid a pound per »ere, or £10, for what is now worth £20 per acre, or £800. The growth and expenditure of the community, the work of the nation, not the work of the farmer, have made that land worth 1!) sovereigns per acre more to-day that it was worth 30 years ago. Why shouldn't the community take those 19 sovereigns for it's own use, by charging the farmer...

Wholesale Dummying. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Wholesale Dummying. A CORRESPONDENT writing to the Australian Star, says :-" Some short time ago you published a letter from a Hr. ß. Hodne t, stating that homestead lease dummying was being perpetrated in the Bourke land district. Permit me to supplement that news. The Amended Land Bill, to come into force on December 1st next, will allow applicant's for home- stead leases to take up blocks from 2560 acres to 10,210acres each ; atpresent the smaller quantity can- not be applied for. So just now a rnsh is being made to secure the resumed areas in the largest blocks possible-e.g., 10,240 acres. By the time December 1 arrives, there will not be a chance for a small man wedging himself in anywhere. On all sides the resumed areas are being secured ; in fact, they are being mopped np wholesale. The land boards seem powerless to stop what they must know are glaring cases of dummyism. One question now asked the applicant is, ' Have you been in the employment of any person during the last t...

The Present and Future of Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

The Present and Future oí Queensland. ON September 16, in connection with the British Association, Mr. Lumholtz read his paper on " The Present and Future of Queensland," of which the following is an abstract :-The author points out that Queensland, the youngest of the Australian colonies, is three times as large as France, and nearly six times as large as the United Kingdom, yet contains a population of less than 400,000. The progress of settlement from the year 1859, when Queensland, separating from the colony of New South Wales, became independent, is mentioned and the question raised whether in the future there will not be a Northern Colony devoted to tropical agriculture, with coolie labour legalised and recognised. It is shown that the Western in- terior, which used to be considered as a howling wilderness, has in comparatively recent times been proved to be a prairie land abounding in the richest natural herbage growing out of deep chocolate coloured or black virgin soil.

Telegraphic Sporting. SYDNEY, MONDAY NIGHT. - " Martindale " tips for the Melbourne Cup . Melos 1, Antaeus 2, Riche lien 3. A special edition of the Melbourne Sportsman to- day places Bravo 1, Carbine 2, Melos 3. " Nemo " says ; A small field will start, and Car- digan or Melos may win, with Bravo, Chicago, or Richelieu as their most dangerous opponents. The Australian Star tips : Melos 1, Chicago 2, Chetwynd or Rudolph 3. The Melbourne Herald names : Knight of the Garter 1, Bravo 2, Carbine 3. Lonsdale was scratched for the Cap, because the stable was unable to get their money on. It is rumoured that Carbine is lame. £3000 was offered this morning for Melos. One of the best judges in Melbourne considers that Melos is a certainty, with Bravo as next beBt. Young Feilder went over last night to ride Blue- nose, who is considered to have a good outside show.
