REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 20 May 1876

REPRESENTATION. IT is satisfactory to find from exchanges that the member, for the Clarence and Richmond River districts (Mr. BAWDEN), is in his place in Parlia ment, and is putting a little life into ' political matters, by asking some pertinent questions, a report of. which appears in another part of this paper. Like Mahomet's coffin, we notice that the Richmond River Tug question is still suspended between I heaven and earth ; but now that it has once : again been brought under their notice, no doubt something practical will be done in the matter. Thc same gentleman has also brought in a Bill to sub divide and increase the electorate of the Clarence, the second reading of wHcj&iwas.fixed for the 12th instant. As yet¿we are unacquainted with the pro visions of the Bill, hut presume it allots one mem ber to the Richmond, as sketched out in" a. Bill wlqrai came.hunder public notice some lime since.

CLIPPINGS. From various pagers. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 20 May 1876

f CIÍIPPIIÍÓS. . %From various pagers. *WHILE the Government harbour or pier at Don (aghee, Ireland, was building, a' battle took place between twp powerful dogs. One was a Newfound land,.the other a mastiff. They had. a prolonged fight upon the pier from the point of which Lhey both fell into the sea'; and,> as the pier was long and steep, they had no means of, escape but by tswimming a considerable distance. Each began to make for the land as best he could ; the Newfound land, being an excellent swimmer, very speedily ¿gained-the shore, on which he stood shaking himself but at the same time watching the motions of his former antagonist who being a bad swimmer, was . struggling exhausted in the, water and just about to sink. ; In dashed, the Newfoundland, took the other ^ gently by the collar, kept his head above water, and . brought him safely on shore. There wás a peculiar kind of recognition between the two « animals ; .they had often;Jought before, but never afterwards. An A...

The Session. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 20 May 1876

The Session. TnE Sydney correspondent of the Grafton Argus says:-The Assembly is thoroughly weary of the Session, and counts itself out now on private nights regularly after tea, with a reckless con tempt for the business imper that may be on Mr. Speaker's table. Almost every member has a little bill, like a hen with one chick, which ho wants to pass before the Session closes, ..but a quorum cannot be kept together after tea. There is great slaughter of the innocents ahead. Even on Government nights there is but a thin House, and tho debates unwind their prolixity with a painful tediousness. There will be a flash in the pan, no doubt, when the Loan Estimates come on, particularly over the Hlawarra Railway, but that over and providing the Government dodges its dangers as success fully as it has hitherto done, hon. members will be ready to fling up their hats and exclaim, "Now for our holidays." The Council does not seem so tired-in fact, it comes-up to its work fresh and ruddy every ...

Although somewhat nighty, birds have a great deal to do with matters in general; and a Little Bird has often told members of Parliament tilings which have proved very awkward for the Ministry in power.

Since then its population had greatly increased. He could not concur in tÇ# bill then introduced by the Government, because it gave a greater representation, than as it seemed to him the colony required. Mr. Smith's motion was lost by 14 to 9. ,
