Oddfellows' Deputation. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 13 August 1886

1 ,.i Oddfellows' Deputation. A deputation from the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows, consisting of Messrs. Swadling, Mutton, Carlisle and Woods, was recently introduced to Sir Patrick Jennings by Messrs. O'Connor, Abigail, and Kethel. The object of the' deputation was to request the Govern ment to omit from tho tariff all fluid ex tracts of medicines imported solely for medical purposes, of the standard strength and quality* required by the British Pharmacopia. It was shown that the proposed tax of 12s. per gallon on im1 ported drugs would act in a most oppresssve manner on tne members of friendly societies and their widows and orphaned . families, who consisted of the most thrifty and deserving of the industrial classes. Sir Patrick Jennings stated that tho matter had already en gaged his attention, and he would endeavour in some measure to meet the views of the deputation.

Medicinal Plants. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 13 August 1886

j medicinal Plants. The following letter appears in the Syd ney Mail of the 31st ultimo: — In the Mail of the 10th instant, in an article on farming on Bellinger, I read the follow ing: — ' Dr. Hicks has recently been experimenting with the medicinal pro perties of certain plants, principally the Stinging tree; he found the alkaloid in the latter to be useful in the treatment of certain diseases, especially epilepsy. These experiments have been the result . of information' supplied Dr. Hicks by. the aborigines of the Bellinger.' Now, sir,' in the year 1879, I wrote to Mr. Charles Watt, inquiring if he would an alyse a sample of bark for me, and his charge for so doing. Mr. 'Watt wished me'to send samples of leaves, flowers, &c., that it might be indentified, saying that it probably had already been anal ysed.- I replied that it -was the bark of the 'stinging tree (Lapartea gigas). He did 'not answer my inquiry as to cost of analysis; seeing that he was unwilling to undertake...

Home Rule. In response to an invitation from the residents of Coraki, Mr. J. J. O'Ryan, barrister at., law, delivered an address on the above subject at the School of Arts on Saturday evening last. To make the matter one of a more general nature, certain resolutions were prepared, moved, and carried unanimously. The chair was occupied by Mr. W. Welsh, and on the platform were the Rov. Father M'Cabe, Messrs Sexton (Lismore), Malone, Mobbs, Doran, Dean (Lismore), and several others. The chairman in a few well chosen and appropriate words explained the object of the meeting, and introduced Mr. O'Ryan, who was most enthusiastically received. Mr. Sexton, in proposing the first resolution, said that it gave him great pleasure to be there to welcome Mr. O'Ryan, and to express his sentiments with regard to that grand old man Mr. Gladstone, who he had no hesitation in saying was the greatest living statesman who had existed for the last 500 years. He regretted that he had not the language or...

Our Cricketers at Home. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 20 August 1886

Qnr Cricketers at llome. 'All the Australian teams which have visited this country have thoroughlyi .earned the character for never leaving a stone upturned to secure victory. Mr. Scott's eleven has already earned this ?reputation, and their remarkable instance of playing up in the second match with the Gentlemen of England will not soon be forgotten.

The Grand Old Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 20 August 1886

Tho Grand Old Man. 'The London, Times, in a review of the Parliamentary session which closes to-day ?(June 25), remarks that there is hardly ? another example of an appeal from the -elected to the electors after so short a trial. If successful, the precedent must 'be injurious to the stability, already too much shaken, of Parliamentary govern ment. ? In other respects the course taken by Mr. Gladstone can only be described as purely mischievous, whatever may be the result of his appeal to the constitu encies. Parliament has been deprived of the opportunity of carrying out any part of the unobtrusive programme of practical legislation with which — substantially by the consent of' all parties — it was elected to deal six months ago. English politics have .been recklessly convulsed by the introduction of revolutionary schemes, from the disturbing effect of which they iWill: not speedily recover. Great incon venience, public and private, has been caused tjy the sudden close of this sess...

Prince, Ogg, & Co., Warno «fc Reid, and other firms, and when they matured I was obliged, through the failure in business of the man I had accommodated, to retire the promissory-notes myself.

Gentlemen Riders. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 20 August 1886

Oentlemen Hitlers. At. the Jockey Club meeting, held at Newmarket during the July week, the stewards will propose to add the rnle 54 — ' Gentlemen shajl not ride in races with licensed jockeys on equal conditions . of weight, except by express permission I of the stewards of the Jockey Club.' We think (says Land and Water) that if a proviso be added, excepting the cases where gentlemen are riding their own horses, the clause will be a salutary one. It is a sound politico-economic law that people should not do gratuitously for others professional work, as by thus aoting they may be preventing qualified persons from- earning a livelihood. At present there seemB no likelihood of amateur jockeys ousting the professionals, but the principle is the same, and it is not right that ; gentlemen Bhould act as jookeys without remuneration, while of ..course it, is still worse if professing to ride as gentlemen they are virtually paid for their 'services. There is no reason why, now that wo have...

OUR RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 20 August 1886

--93 SS. KASIiWAVH. The recent report of the Commissioner for Railways is eminently suggestive of the direful loss to the country through centralization and the ncglect to open up distant and prolific districts by light lines of railway ; nnd when we consider that the net revenue for 1885 represents a return or o.o/ as agamsc n.&v tor 188-i, we commencc to wouder how, if the present centralizing system of railway construction is not stopped, we shall be able to pay even the bare interest on recent loans. There can be no doubt that some of this sad deficiency is attributable to the late unfavourable seasons, but even that hypothesis does not account for such a deficit, neither does it palliate the action of those who may fairly be termed political railway manufacturers. The return shows that the gross earnings of our railways per mile is something like .£150 less than last year, and these railway politicians endeavour to screen themselves behind the statement that it is the e...
