LOCAL AND GENERAL. MR. WILLOUGHBY.-We are requested to state that Mr. Willoughby's next visit to Windsor will be made on June 20, and his stay in Windsor will be continued until the end of that month. HONOUR WHERE HONOUR IS DUE.-We noticed the following paragraph in a recent issue of the "Evening News":-"During the late military gathering, the amount of telegraphic work done in camp h:is been something immense, and the two gentlemen on duty there have had a truly trying time of it. We, of the Press, gave them enough to do yesterday, sending abeut 6000 words altogether, and there were hosts of private and official messages as well. The two officers were on duty until 2 o'clock this morning, but came to the scratch smiling again when the call of inexorable duty was heard. They have my sincere thanks for the promptitude with which the reports have been wired through." The thanks of Major-General Richardson were also conveyed to the officials in question, and we may mention that one of ...

Hawkesbury District Agricultural Association. TENTH ANNUAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 18 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 be done by one kind of man ; not by scheming speculators, nor by noldiurs, nor by professors, nor readers of Tennyson ; but by men of endurance, deep-chested, long-winded, tough, alow, sure, and timely."-R. W. Kmkkson. The Tenth Annual Show in connection with the above closed on Saturday last. On Friday the attendance was over 5000, and on Saturday over 2000 persons were present. In our last issue we gave an almost complete report of the proceed ing with a list of awards made up to the time we went to press.

Colo News. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 May 1889

. Colo News. SERIOUS BURNING ACCIDENT,-On Wednesday afternoon a little girl of Mrs. Turnbull's, of Colo, was making a fire in the kitchen, When she managed to ignite her clothes. The little thing happened, however, to have great presence of mind for a child, for she threw herself into a large canvas bag in the verandah, and although unsuc cessful in wholly extinguishing the flames, she saved herself from serious burns. Mrs. Turnbull, who heard her scream, ran to her assistance and succeeded in putting out the fire by wrapping her dress round it. The child is six years old She was severely burned the body, both legs, and on the left arm. Dr. Newton, of Richmond, is treat ing her, and he informs me that he has good hopes of her speedy recovery. THE WEATHER.-Rain is wanted as badly at Colo as it is in other parts of the district. The crops, however, are looking well, and, thanks to Mr. Road Inspector Neilley, the roads are in very good order.

May Social. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 May 1889

May Social. On Thursday evening the Windsor Social Club1 held its May Social at the Union Hall. Too much cannot be said in praise of this building,, which is, since its its enlargement, eminently suited for the purpose of skating, dancing, &c. It is roomy, being 62 feet in length, well-ventilated, clean, and comfortable, and on Thursday evening appeared to great advantage in its decorations. Mr. O'Brien has spared no expense in securing suitable decorations, and the Japanese umbrellas, fans, lanterns, &c.t alone cost oyer £10. In this respect Mr. O'Brien has shown that he possesses an enterprising spirit which it would be well, for Windsor and district, for others to seek to emulate. It was brilliantly lighted also, and this is another good feature. The social was a pro nounced success. There were about 35 couples present, and all seemed to thoroughly enjoy them selves. Mr. Dunstan made an efficient M.C., and was relieved occasionally by other gentlemen. The music co...

Richmond Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 May 1889

Richmond Water Supply. On Thursday Mr. C. S. Guest kindly drove us to, the spot from which the present water supply for Richmond is taken. The lagoon is situated at the rear of the G. E. Cemetery, and is pleasantly bounded by a Chinaman's garden, a slaughter house, a pig-run, and the cemetery aforesaid. For some 60 years this pool has not been known to be as low as it is at the present time. It is not at all pleasant to contemplate that the whole of the water used by the Richmond people is taken from this small hole, covered as it is with a thin green scum, and having such unhealthy associations. A move ment is now a foot to once more open negotiations with the Government to supply the town with water, according to the scheme of Mr. Moriarty.' Ill the place from which he proposed to take the supply there are at all times at least five feet of running water, and no difficulty would be ex perienced, it is said, in throwing it down to the higl est point in the town. Mr. Moriarty's orig...

Concert at Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 May 1889

Concert at Richmond. On Friday evening last a first-class concert was given in the School of Arts, Richmond, in aid of the Richmond Cricket Club. The attendance was not very large, but those who were present enjoyed the entertainment thoroughly, and went home well satisfied. The overture had concluded before we reached the hall, and therefore we are unable to speak first-hand of it. Mrs. Gow and Mr. Fitzgerald sang a duet in splendid style, and were warmly applauded. Miss Crisford treated her hearers to the " Maid of Athens," and her sweet voice was heard to great advantage. Mr. Piddington's singing during the evening was much appreciated, and in response to an encore after " I fear no foe," that gentleman sung " Queen of the earth," following up later on in the evening with "The Bedouin's love song," in which he scored a big success. Mr. T. H. F. Griffin gave a reading from Mark Twain's " Jumping Frog," and caused much hilarity. In her old favourite, "Come back to Erin," Mrs. Gow w...

Cornstalk Cutting by Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 25 May 1889

Cornstalk Gutting by Machinery. Some little time ago, in response to an invitation fram Mr. W. Mitchell, of Richmond, a number of farmers witnessed a trial of a cornstalk-cutter invented by that gentleman, and the trial gave great satisfaction to all concerned. Mr. Mitchell has since made several material alterations, and on Monday last we had the satisfaction of witness it in operation at Mr. J. Hough's, Richmond Bottoms. To say that it is highly satisfactory is hardly expressing the true value of it to the farmers. The stalks are first knocked down by an iron rod at the front of the shaft, and the knives going over them completely mince them up, after which they can, without difficulty and with no fear of their being afterwards turned over by the plough, be ploughed into the ground -thereby making a natural manure. The machine weighs about 9 or 10 cwt, and has now twelve knives of tempered iron. Messrs. Hough speak in high terms of it, both as a labour-saving implement, and one th...

It will be of some interest to our readers to give an account of a banquet given by the people of Forbes to Mr. Charles Icely, at one time accoun tant in the Windsor branch of the Commercial Bank. It is taken from the correspondent's news to the " Town and Country Journal -On Friday evening about fifty gentlemen assembled at Mrs. Mitchell's Post Office Hotel to bid farewell to Mr. Charles Icely, accountant in the Forbes branch of the Commercial Bank.

The Late Mrs. Beard. On Sunday night last the Rev. T. S. Forsaith preached a very impressive sermon at the Congre gational Church, touching upon the death of the late Mrs. Beard. The text was taken from 6th chapter Revelations, 16 and 17 verses. The preacher gave a short sketch of the life of Mrs. Beard, stating that she was born at Liverpool, in England, in the year 1808, and for years was a very active member of the Congregational body, and a very earnest attendant at the Congre gational Church in that city, presided over by the eminent divine, the Rev. John Griffin. The preacher said he had it on the highest authority that out of a large congregation of some 500 or 600 persons no one was more attentive to her religion than the late Mrs. Beard. She had much sorrow in life, two of her family by her first husband having been drowned. After marrying the late Mr. Beard, they removed to the South of England, and from there to the colonies.
