LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 9 July 1881
LOCAL AND GEÑEBAL PRIVATE THEATRicax.s.^.Ón Friday evening, the 1st inst., a select audience were invited to witness a private theatrical performance at " Everton," which commenced at 8 o'clock, the first piece being entitled "The Obstinate' Family ;" the caste being :-Mr. Hawthorne* by Mr. Barker; Mr. Charles Herbert, by Mr. Cyril Haviland ; William, by Mr.,JSng. Mrs. Hawthorne, by Mrs. L.. S»-^dbsr4 &lt; Mrs. Charles Herbert, by Miss Bridson; and Susan, by Mrs. Robinson. It would J» in- vidious to particularise^ though no. doubt die other performers will not grudge the eulo-* gium, when we say that the "make up "of Mr. Barker was exceptionally good. -The other characters were well enacted, not omit- ting the young lady who so artlessly played the role of Susan. Here followed selections on the piano by both lady and gentlemen performers. The second piece was entitle ** Novelties," which certainly did not befe its name ; and whether it was an original com- position by thc ec...

Richmond. RICHMOND POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, JULY, 1ST, 1881. (Before Messrs. W. Lamrock and R. H. Ducker, J.'sP.) William Phillips, a youth of 18 years, and working at Mr. Julian's tannery, Windsor, appeared on summons to answer a charge preferred by Senior-constable McNeilly, of obstructing the public thoroughfare, namely, the footway in front of the Railway Station, Richmond. This nuisance has existed a long time, and the officer above named had deter- mined to put it down, hence this case. The defendant pleaded guilty, and the Bench, considering that it was the first offence, were disposed to deal leniently with him ; they' accordingly lined defendant 10s. and 5s. 6d. costs. Fine paid. Their worships adminis- tered a severe rebuke to the defendant, and cautioned him that if the offence occurred again, they would inflict the full penalty. One of the magistrates stated that he himself had frequently great difficulty in pushing his way through the crcwd of young men congre- gated at th...
The Richmond Scavenger. FROM A CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 16 July 1881
The Richmond Scavenger. ntOM A CORRESPONDENT. " Whom the gods love die young," there- fore I am afraid they cannot have any special I regard for the aldermen of Richmond. Being in a lightsome mood on Wednesday night, 6th inst., I took a stroll to the Council Chambers and found six lights burning like a Turkish wake ; the audience and spectators ( for there were both) were arranged like the passen- gers of a 'bus. The competitors were in good trim. Aid. Kelly looked well after his recent visit to the *' Village by the Yarra," he had his locks parted daintily in the centre ; Price and Onus had no particular parting. Cob« croft appeared to be trained rather fine, and led off too far at first. On my arrival Aid. Cobcroft was urging strenuous objection to the report of the Works Committee being received ; he considered it an unmitigated robbery to spend ratepayers' money in the manner proposed. Aid. Cris ford supported the speaker, and could not see the necessity of paying fourteen guine...

DUCKS AND GEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 16 July 1881
DUCKS AND GEESE. I (says a c rrespondent of a Transatlantic contemporary), wish to draw attention, as a specific branch of agriculture, to the raising of ducks and geese for profit. Many old farmers and perhaps some young ones, may give a sniff of the nose at this, but a lítele experience has satisfied me that there is more money in ducks and geese to the larmer than in hens or turkeys, The duck is gene- rally esteemed as a table fowL, -and it onîy needs testing to make the goose the peer of the turkey upon the Christmas board. As an egg producer there is no fowl that will compare with ducks. They will bring a slightly better price than chickens, cost no more to raise under fair conditions, and yield a fine crop of feathers besides. The goose produces about the same number of eggs as a turkey, can be raised at half the cost, brings nearly the same ? price in market and yields abundance of fine feathers. The goose, like the cow, makes its living chiefly on grass, while the duck is th...
WHAT AN OLD FARMER SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 16 July 1881
WHAT AN OLD FARMER SAYS. THIS is the advice of an old man who tilled the soil for 40 years : I -am an old nam, upwards of threescore years, during two score of which I had been a tiller of the soil. I cannot say that I am now, but I have been rich, and have had all T need, do not owe a shilling, have given my children a good education, and- when 1 am called away will.leave theiu enough to keep the wolf from -the door. -- My - experience has taught me that» t. One acre of land} well prepared and cul- tivated, produced more than two which received only the same amount of labour used on one. 2. One cow, horse, sheep, or hog, well fed, is more profitable than two kept on the same amount necessary to keep one well. 3. One acre of clover of grass is worth more than two of cotton where no grass or clover, is raised. 4. No farmer who buys oats, corn, wheat, fodder and hay, as a rule, tor 10 years can keep the bailiff away from the door in the end. 5. The farhièr who never reads the papers, ...
