CLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881

CLIPS. WHERE THE MONEY GOES TO.-It is said that j the proprietor .of " Cole's " circus netted £24,000 while in the Australian colonies. WABM OX THE " BULLETIN*."-" Quiz " in the Manning and Hastings Advocate, says :-" It woidd be much better to ijubscribe io the San Francisca Nexos Letter at once, and so get the originals of the rouglily set jokes of the Bulletin.. There is half a column of Bulletin headed the ' Kokaburra." nearly all of which is stolen verbatim from the San Fran- cisco Neics Letter. Verily the managing man of the Bulletin, must be a 'literary petty larcenist,' a newspaper Autolycus, ha is so pronounced a 'picker up of unconsidered trifles.' For cool impudence he is unapproachable. Typographical errors, elsewhere, he is loud in condemning, yet he is ever guilty of such wron?. Incorrect quotations he affects to despise, yet he is very adept of such blunders. Wrong spelling lie holds up to ridicule, yet he can't sjHill a long or exceptionally used word. This Bulletin ...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881

CORRESPONDENCE. THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Chronicle. SIR,-It was with much pleasure I read the article in your last issue, on the subject of the half-holiday and early closing move- ments' lam sure many of our fellow-towns- men are equally with myself, gratified with your advocacy of the movement ever since the starting of the Chronicle. As yon state, the half-holiday movement was agitated in this town some few years ago, but broke down for the want of unanimity on the part of those concerned ; and a Movement which was set on foot for closing the places of business at seven o'clock, fell through from the same reason. It is admitted on all sides, that the long business hours in some branches of trade is a crying evil, and urgently requires a remedy. In most of the retail houses in this town, and I believe the same applies tu Richmond, -the hours are from seven o'clock in the morning til, after niue; or from 12 to 14 or more hours per day. Is it any w...

QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881

QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. WINDSOR put ou a holiday appearance, ors Tuesday, the 2tth inst., the Anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria. The weather was decidedly propitious, and might fairly be termed " Queen's weather," although there was a stormy look aloft that must hare made both mater and maiden apprehensive as to the suitableness of muslin, and other diaphonous habiliments, for pie-nicing costume. Gene- rally, however, it did not deter people from going out ; for nearly everybody that eould rate vehicles were on the move outwards, so dat as the day wore on the town seemed de ?=< ;t"d. The Congregational Sunday School children and their friends were conveyed out to the Chain of Pouds, where they pic-niced ii grand ivie: returning home in buss-loads in gool tim-- looking as happy as only the y mag can : k.

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881

LOCAL AND GENERAL. "Tue CHRONICLE."-New sty I . - Our raaders will see by this issue that we mean business ; and that we have kept our promise by bringing out our paper in a new form, and with it additional reading matter. As will be seen, our a;m is to give as much local and general news as possible ; and with this aim we invite the hearty co-operation of our numer- ous friends, who, we are happy to say, can be counted by hundreds-instead of as formerly -by scores. Our canvasser is now in town, and will call upon everybody with a specimen of what we can do ; and to obtain their favours. We don't grudge other people having feathered their nests, but we insist upon an equal right to " go in" for the spare spons that are knock- ing about the district ; and which may, in due time, enable us to feather ours. THE parishioners of tl c Rev. Canon Gunther, of Parramatta, presented him Jast week with an Easter offering. Nearly £100 was subscribed, a portion of which has been spent on a buggy...

ANNUAL DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881

ANNUAL DINNER. THE inmates of that noble Institution-the Hawkesbury Benevolent Asylum-were re- galed on Wednesday night with a good dinner that had been provided by the ladies of town and district. Having a little time on hand before the appointed hour, our reporter had a look rouud ; and, at the invitation of Mr. W Dfian, went over the Institution, which, he is only too glad to say, was all that good manage- ment could make it. Everything betokened a military or naval neatness and order that would delight the heart of a quarter-deck martinet. It would indeed puzzle one to find one untidy or dirty spot in the house or grounds. At 12'30 the dinner was an- nounced ; the old people took their sea» s at two long tables-the men to one and the women to the other. The members of the Committee present officiated as Chairmen, and carved for the old people ; and as for waiters, none could be more assidious than were Mr. Dean, Mr. Howley, çhe superintendent, and a clean, smart old fellow named...

PHRENOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 28 May 1881

PHRENOLOGY. A DEBATE took place on Monday evening the 23rd. inst., at the Schoo: of Arts, in cen nection with the Mutual Improvement Society. Mr. D, Holland in the chair. Mr. Harding opened the debate in the affirmative, and having declared that ac- cording to rules laid down by phrenologists, the nature or quality of any mind could be ascertained from the shape of the skull. He endeavoured to prove this by the following arguments : 1st.-That the brain is the organ of the mind may be seen from its commanding posi- tion, delicate structure-or from the fact that it requires in its qperation one third of the blood, and that all the organs of the body were exclusively occupied in performing their duty, thus leaving for the brain the function or the mind ; and that the nerves of hearing. seeing, smelling, etc., were traced each tp a part of the brain, and if those intellectual duties were performed by certain parts of die brain it was reasonable to suppose that the remaining parts were o...

Faithful Hattie. (CONCLUDED.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 4 June 1881

Faithful Hattie. JOE Berth field returned to New York and to the boarding-house where his worldly goods were packed ready for transit, in a depressed and remorseful state of mind. He was miser- able enough, Heaven knows, and though he bit his lips until the blood almost came, and clinched his tee'h, it was hard work to keep the tears from starting. It was in vain that he inwardly exhorted him- self not to feel this wringing pain in his heart. Nature^ not manhood, was uppermost. He could not eat, but lighting a cigar and repair- ing to his dingy room he leaned out of the window to enjoy his only luxury-that of thinking of Hattie Hawdin. He folded his arms tightly across his breast thinking about her, and then he indulged in a romantic idea that the wind wonld waft her breath to him, or that the same moon should look down upon both. He had not naturally a genius for self torment, quite the reverse ; but a man in love will do such things. In his mind's eye he beheld her as his wife, an...

CLIPS. PITY. I As blossoms and flo weis are strewed upon earth oy the hand of spring, as the kindness of summer i ro duceth in perfection the bounties of harvest, so t'fe smiles of pity shed blessings on the eliildxen of m j - fortune. ' He who pitieth another recommendeth himself, but he who is without compassion deserveth it not. The butcher releuteth not at the bleeding of i le lamb; neither is the heart of the cruel moved w hh distress. But the tears of the compassionate are sweeter tlun dew-drops falling from roses on the bosom of tue spring. ¡Shut not thine ear, therefore, against the cries of the poor : neither harden thy heart against the cala- mities of thc innocent. When the fatherless call upon thee, when the widow's heart is sunk and she imploreth thy assist- ance with tears of sorrow, O pity her affliction, aad extend thy hand to those who have none to help them.
