TO THE EDITOR OF THE RICHMOND RIVER HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
TO TBE EDITOR of THE RICHMOND RIVER maun, Sir,— Lately travelling from Casino to Coraki, and, intending to travel on that portion of this road recently laid1 out by air, .Surveyor liichard Barling, to my astonishment and suiprise I found the slip -rails completely: barred by being wedged and nailed, compelling' me to ride up to the belly of my horse through slush and mud on the old road. Mr. Editor, I would ask youif ? we are living in a barbario or semi-barbaric country, and: who are these great and mighty chiefs that our Government, ? our road officials, and the public in general will allow theinselvee to be dictated to, and tyranned by t Who are they that they can dictate to us as if serfs'P I appeal to the ]pubhc. When such tyrants appear is it not time that we bound ourselves together in - united action - and claim our lawfu^ rights, and never cease till such is obtained, but continue using the motto of ;Dan O'Connell—' Agitate, agitate, agitate.' ? ?

It appears that Walter Ridge ly, an unmarried man about 34 years of age, lives on the Texan bank of the Red River in the midst of a very sparsely settled country. Two : Irish brothers, named Joseph and Robert Murphy, kept a ferry ,on . the Red River, about, eight miles west of Ridgely'B farm. The regular fee charged for conveying a man and horae across the ferry was 50 cents, or 2s. On the 2nd Maroh a commercial traveller crossed the ferry from Texas into the Indian territory and paid the usual fee. Having transacted his busi ness he returned next day to the ferry, and was., conveyed across to. the Texas side. He handed the same fee to the ferryman; but was informed that they expected to bo paid fivo dollars for the job. He' remonstrated ; upon which tho Murphy brothers replied, ' In that case we sha...

ONE of .die last measures ) of : General Boplanger,' as Minister of War, was the addressing, of a- circular letter to the Prefects, asking them to take measures to prevent the slaughter of carrier pigeons, or to point out to him the legislative steps it might.be well to take for the preservation of these interesting aud useful messengers. : As there is little to distinguish them from the ordinary pigeon, it will be necessary to shield - the whole race of pigeons from the marksmen by imposing a fine on all who may kill them outside of the dove-cot and the farm yard;, /Both . France, and Germany are;' busy training, and improving their i breeds of carrier pigeons ; but Germany ;? is also training: hawks, which' they mean :to, let loose in timeof war on the enemy'a '^pigeons. . u : i « «1

The ante-chamber of the aud ience-room was crowded with generals and npbletuen who had come to thank his Majesty for promotions or decorations; but mingling with these ' were authors, inventors, professors, widows and orphans seeking pensions, and a number . of men who had petitions to present.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE RICHMOND RIVER HERALD. THE BENEFITS OF DRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
to raw editor of tiib Richmond river imam. THE BENEFITS OF DRAINING. Sir,— As I havo been asked to do a scribblo ou druinugo, I will do my best in stating what I havo soen, hoard, and read. The relations of the soil to water are so intimatelv connooted with the subject ot tillage, fertilisation, and warmth of Mm soil, that tho tiller of the soil would do well to consider them. Soils often retain for a long time more water than is good for orops, and when this dries up they will be found to bo, in many cases, the driest ot all soils, except, perhaps, blowing sands, which are not classed as soils. Some soils are perpetually water-soaked, while others sire wet in the spring and wet seasons, but, though cold, are nevertheless tillable1 in favourable seasons, all such soils need to have the water artificially drained, the water may come solely from the rains, but it may como from higher ground, or up in springs froti benoath tho land itself. If it cimee from higher ground that souroe sho...

Sensational Racine. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
Sensational Racing. Lovers of sensational racing events will find the following account of a steeple chase that was recently run on the Auteriil course, Paris, rather interesting!

At the :next water-jump, however, Trident again came to grief, sending Cunningham to grass,- whereupon Bob Coulthorn, ? a well-known jockey and trainer at Mason's Lafitte,. jumped, .into the, saddle, but he also came a cropper, and then little Baker, mounted.

Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Parnell. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
Mr. Gladstone and Mr. ' JParnell. Speaking of Mr. Gladstone, it is said that it is impossible to see him and not be struck with the inroads time is making upon him. His voice is gone, and his piercing glance is ho longer what it was. Whenever a provincial Liberal who has not seen Mr. Gladstone for a year or two comes to town and meets him face to face, he can talk of nothing else for days but the fact: that it is no longer possible to count on Mr. Gladstone to fill his old place. It is said of Mr. Parnell that he looks like a living corpse. : Without changos almost too great to expect, he: will never lead his party again.' There is a story circulating about Mr. Parnoll, according to which his own private physician does not know exactly the facts about his illness, as Mr. Parnell has from the first refused to tell him, but' he has consulted a specialist not in London, going to him privately under the name of Charles Stewart.
