Richmond River. SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

Richmond River. SATURDAY. -J.HE memners or trie Lismore School of Arts had a debate on Tuesday night respecting the opening of the reading room on Sunday afternoons. Only a dozen turned up. The resolution for opening found a Btrong opponent in Rev. R. Inglis, who refuted the usual arguments that are used'for opening these institutions, and instanced the failure of opening the reading room at Grafton on Sundays. On the casting vote of the President, a resolution was carried to the effect that the vote be taken by ballot on roll to be kept by the custo- dian ; that it extend Ito all patrons of the institu- tion, and remain open for one month. CASINO PDBLIC INSTITUTIONS.-Judging by the reports, some of the leading institutions of Casino are not in the most prospérons condition.

Political and Social Letter. [WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE EXAMINER.] SYDNEY, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

Political and Social Letter. RWRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE EXAMINER.] SYDNEY, SATURDAY. IN consequence of tue action of the Legislative Council in amending the Payment of Members' Bill a political crisis has arisen, and how it will end no one can accurately predict. As soon as the Bill came into the Assembly yesterday, from the 'other place,' the SPEAKER delivered an elaborate opinion on the action of the Upper House in mak- ing tho amendments, and he declared with no uncertain sound that the action amounted to an invasion of the rights and privileges of the repre- sentative Chamber. As soon as he had concluded, Sir HENRY PARKES rose and moved that the Bill be laid aside. In moving the resolution he made a most vigorous speech, in which he endorsed the opinions expressed by the SPEAKER, and declared his intention of fighting the other House. By nearly every member of the Assembly present his remarks were received with extraordinary enthu- siasm, and the resolution was carried on the vo...

NURSES' HOME.-That estimable young lady, Miss Ada Wolfe, is to be commended for the great interest she has taken in the movement co establish a Nurses' Home in connection with the ' Maitland Hospital. " She has made some excel- lent Buggestions, to the committee .including one- to provide a nurse to visit the sick at their homes, i.e., tho¿e who have an objec- tion to go to the hospital, or who are unable to engage the services of a nnrse.

The Mysterious Murder in Carlton. Arrest of the Murderer, Confession of his Guilt [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

The Mysterious Murder in Carlton. _ Arrest of the Murderer, Confession of his Guilt CIRCUMSTANCES in connection with the my- sterious murder of the woman Annie Thornton, alias Wilson, alias Gorrie, took an extraordinary turn on Saturday night, and on Sunday afternoon Philip Costelloe was arrested on a charge of the murder, and he subsequently made a confession of his guilt. Of all criminals whose deeds have lately been chronicled in Melbourne, the prisoner had apparently the best chance of hiding himself and his offence. The murder was not discovered until a week after it had been committed, and in that week much might have been done to destroy all the proofs. Yet the meshes of the law have at once ensnared the culprit. It appears that the last time the unfortunate woman was seen in the streets he had been in her company. Articles of jewellery which are now known to have belonged to her had been flaunted by him, and given away as presents. More tragic proofs were found when his boxe...

Tatham. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

Tatham. FBIDAY. IJAST WEEK will be long remembered by the resi- dents in this district. Last Sunday night week a bitter cold southerly wind set in with heavy rain which continued until Friday night. On Thursday morning the river commenced to rise and continued until Friday night about 9 o'clock. It was then within 18 inches of the highest flood'known. Up Deep Creek the water was higher than ever it was known, and the same can be said of Coraki There is no doubt but the flood will be a serious loss to the district. On this occasion many of the barns bursted, and the contents were washed away, while many othera had from three to four feet in the stnddlei. The flood water rose and fell so slow that when the flooded corn could be moved it was bud- ding. On one farm where about 30 acres of corn was grown this year, not more than 25 bags will be saved. Kot many live stock have been lost. On the lower part of the North Arm a good deal of destruction has been done. On the main river houses ...

Telegraphic News. [EXTRACTS »BOM THE SYDNEY PAPERS]. I LONDON, JÜLY 26. ' FOREIGNERS désirons of settling in Australia are making complaints to the British Foreign Office to 1 the effect that it is difficult for them to obtain ' complete naturalisation throughout the whole of the Australian colonies. The failure of the Sugar Bounties Convention has given rise to much popular irritation in Berlin. Sir Charles Gavan Duffy writes to the effect that if the measure of Home Bule prevailing in Vic- toria were granted to Ireland, there would be no more cases of imprisonment for political offences. The revolt in Crete has become of a general character throughout the Island. The demand for British protection is increasing. Turkey has sent two men-of-war and four regiments to suppress the rising.

The Land Bill. Third Reading. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

The Land Bill. Third Reading'. WHEN moving the third reading of the Bill in the Assembly last week, the MINISTER FOR LANDS (Mr. Brunker) said it would not be in the best interests of the country if he allowed the re-committal of the bill. Upon analysing the figures relating to land available for selec- tion, without taking the proportion of land that had been alienated and cultivated since the Act of 1861, he found that with the area at present available they would not only have sufficient land, taking into consideration the probable increase of population, but three times more than the quantity which had been taken up since 1861. The population in 1861 was 357,978, and in 1887 1,042,919, which showed an increase ia the last five years of 229,000. The areas of conditional purchases up to December 21, 1887, were 17,635,873 acres, and the average area of selected land for 26 years was 678,000 acres. The area of conditional purchases confirmed was 723,000 acres. The area under cultivat...

The Grafton Tweed Railway. Expenditure in the Richmond River District. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

I The. Grafton Tweed Railway. Expenditure in the Richmond River District. THE following letter appears in the <S. -il/. Herald, signed by Mr. M. Rush: Sir.-WiU you permit me space to reply to a letter signed " Justice." which, appeared in the Herald of the loth instant, re expenditure in the Richmond River district. As one who has travelled over that country continually in all weathers during.the last three years, I claim to be able to give an opinion on some of its most important requirements. I quite agree with "Justice"'in some of his remarks, but altogether disagree with him in others. I quite agree with him that the works proposed for the improvement of the entrance to Richmond River should be proceeded with at once, also that the Tweed entrance should be improved, and I would also add that the Brunswick requires some attention. I also agree with him that £50,000 of public money should not be wasted in Byron Bay. 1 may add that this is not only the opinion of "Justic...

Letter to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

Letter to the Editor. SIR.-I beg space in your journal for a few remarks with reference to the third paragraph in your lead- ing article, of last Saturday's issue, under the heading "Provision for warning people in time of flood." In it you state that the Telegraph-office is situate two miles from the river. That assertion is utterly incorrect and misleading, the correct dis- tance being three-quarters of a mile from the office to the river, at its summer level ; and in times of flood when the river has risen thirty-eight feet (which means about ten feet in Grafton six or seven hours afterwards), it flows through a gully   which runs parallel with the river, and within 150 yards of the office, and consequently the rising of river can be, and is, gauged their correctly, without any inconvenience. But I presume, that during the rising of the late flood, you only asked the Station-master for a report every two hours, when he could have reported every hour if requested to d...

Harwood Island. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

Harwood Island. MONDAY. mu n«.»._ rv_i I "xiie «jane.-unce more .we resume our usual tranquility. The flood has left us with nothing more than a thorough soaking, if we except the one-year-old cane, which has been knocked about to a considerable extent ; and I may include the two yeai-old, but as this crop will be cut shortly no trouble will be experienced in connection with that cane as the keen edge of the cutters knife will be felt ere this reaches you. The weather at time of writing is just superb, and every one is looking forward to good times coming. Our Roads, thanks to those in charge, have been all that could be wished for taking into con- sideration the refuse left on them by the late flood. Our punt made a couple of trip3 on Tuesday ; but the extra strain caused by the freshet decided our genial ferryman stopping the usual running untjl Wednesday, when he was able to ran as usual up to 7 p.m., at which hour the drift wood caused him to stop running the steam ferry.

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889

Echoes and Opinions. j IN a recent issue of the Sydney Mail there Î3 a full-page engraving, under which are the words " Views in and around Glen Innes : see page 131." Being somewhat strnck with the difficulty of distinguishing Glen Innes as we knew it compared with the^ larger sketch, we turned ta page 131 for information, only to find a rather admirable copy of Conrad Kiesel's " Clarisse." On page 133, how- ever, we found some letter-press purporting to be descriptive of Inverell, which town the larger of the views above mentioned-with a river in the foreground-more resembles to our eye than it does Glen Innes. It appears to U3 that there has been some blunder with regard to the views, and the intimate relations sought between Glen Innes and Inverell have so preyed upon the mind of the engraver and the writer that they have happily, but perhaps unwittingly, blended the two towns in one. In the letter-press purporting to be descriptive of Inverell, that town is named as the younges...
