Corinda and Woogoolga. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889
Corinda and Woogoolga. MONDAY. Progress Association.-A special meeting of the Progress Association was held at Woogoolga on Saturday to consider a proposal from the Marine Board to lay down some moorings at Woogoolga. The Secretary read the letter from the Secretary of the Marine Board, in which that gentleman pointed out that the laying down of moorings was a matter for private enterprise, but that the Board were willing, if the Association approved, to lay down a 25 hundred weight anchor, with 30 fathoms of 1½ inch chain, and suitable buoy, outside the break, in such position as the Association might approve. Moved by Mr. C. Taylor, seconded by Mr. M'Cal lum and resolved, " That the Secretary inform the Marine Board that the moorings applied for are required in the interest of the general community, and that this application has nothing to do with any previous application ; nor is intended for the benefit of any particular private enterprise. And that the Association thankfully ac...
North Ward Requirements. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889
North Ward" Requirements. SIE.-A petition has been laid before the Council by a number bf ratepayers in the Northward, praying for increased facilities in reaching the business portions of the city in time of flood. - The petition presenta two alternatives : the con- struction of a foot-bridge in Fisher Park; or fail- ing that, the rising of Dobie-street to Prince-street level-a distance of about 150 yards, and averaging à depth of 15 or 18 inches. The former may not meet with approval at the hands of the Council, seeing that in one sense its construction may not be strictly a public require- ment. But, nevertheless, ita utility would be great to some 40 ratepayers in "Villiers-street, north of Dobie street. High land would be available the whole distance; and, in fact, no less a flood than the greatest it has been oar misfortune to experience, would prevent an exit in that direction. .And again, in wet weather, when the crossings in the Park are frequently covered with water, the f...
The North Coast Railway. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889
The North Coast Railway. No. 1. So much has been said in favour of the deviation of this line from the survey along the Coast, to another, said to be practicable up the valley of the Orara, that it would appear as if the people of Grafton were ignorant regarding the advantages which the former holds out, or had formed ridiculously extravagant notions regarding the nature and extent of the country which the latter would open up to settlement. "Without entering at once upon the ques- tion of the extent of country which the proposed deviation would bring about, it would perhaps be not out of place to enumerate a few of the proved claims of the surveyed line to the favour of the Grafton people, and which certainly appear to have been ignored by the Grafton Rail-, way League when framing their very emphatic demand for the trial survey through the Orara. That the claims of the country along the surveyed line have been either wilfully or ignorantly overlooked, seems to be apparent from the...
North Coast Police District. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889
North Coast Police District. THE following is the reply sent by the Inspector- &nbsp; General of Police, relative to the application made to him about a separation from Armidale, and have a new district created :- Sir.-With reference to your letter dated 9th instant, in which you invite attention to the neces- sity for the creation of a Superintendent of Police for the North Coast District at Grafton, I have the honor to 'inform you that I recently called for reports on this subject, though I am personally well acquainted with that part of the Colony and arrangements, and in my opinion there would be no public advantage by the division of the Northern District, which would entail increased public ex- penditure. It has been stated that delay occurs in dealing with police business, detrimental to the adminis- tration of justice in consequence of reports having to be transmitted from the Northern rivers to Sydney via Armidale. This, however, is not the case, as the overland pos...
Yamba. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 30 July 1889
Yamba. &nbsp; SABBATH DESECRATION.-Some few issues back you published a letter signed by two clergymen, protesting against schnapper fishing excursions on &nbsp; the Sabbath. I quite endorse this protest ; but at the same, time I think some greater effort than appears to be made, should be shown in the direc- tion of attending to the spiritual wants of the residents of this place. Very few services are held here by either of the religious bodies, and while such apparent indifference is shown toward sparsely populated places, I fear that the Lord's Day will not be observed as it should be. Permit me to quote an extract on English Sundays that came under my notice the other day, and which maybe read with profit by many. "A large proportion of cases of insanity is traceable every year to persis- tence in Sunday labour. In fact, were there no ecclesiastical rest-day once a week, the Legislature, in the interest of the people, would have to establish one. Best does not, o...

Bankruptcy Court. ON WEDNESDAY, before Mr. A. L. M'Dongall, District Registrar. ; In the estate of Charles M'Sween, of Woodford Island, a single meeting. Mr. Laman appeared on behalf of Simon Bathgate, a creditor in the estate. Bankrupt attributed Ms bankruptcy to a judg- ment obtained*against him ia the Maclean District Court by S. Bathgate, Lawrence, for £14 5s 6d and £4 5s 8a costs, which he was quite unable to satisfy. A ca . sa writ was also issued against him in the Grafton District Court, ordering him to pay 20s per mouth, which he was unable to comply with. He also owed A. Ross of Palmer's Island, £10 for goods supplied, which he was unable to pay, and was obliged to turn bankrupt. : By Mr. Laman : Made a full disclosure of the whole of his affaira in his schedule.

Maclean Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Maclean Municipal Council. THE usual meeting was held on Tuesday. PreRent-the Mayor, Aldermen Cummins, Kyle, Bi'Mahon, Schwonberg, and Roderick. After the confirmation of the minutes, Alderman RODER- ICK, under the cloak of privUedge, wished to refer to the Tote which he gave at a previous meeting, when it was decided to drain down John-street by day-labor. It hod been said that he had changed his views with regard to the respective merits of day. labor and contract work, and he wished emphatically to state that his opinions upon the subject were still unchanged. His' reason for voting in favour of day labor was that, according to his ideas, the Council were not experienced enough to know when they were fretting good valne for their money in contracts. He had given his countenance to day labor in this instance merely for the sake of giving it a trial. CORRESPONDENCE was read and received-from P..P. Gale, with reference to the " Taloumbi chasm," offering . certainsuggestions; and fro...

Presentation.-On Thursday evening, in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, a presentation waa made to Mrs. Harold Crisford, in recognition of the gratuitous services. Shebas for a number of years very heartily and acceptably rendered to the congregation, by officiating as organist in the Church and Sabbath school. A number of friends in the congregation availed themselves of the occasion of her marriage thus to express their gratitude .and their best wishes for her future happiness and prosperity. The presentation con- sisted of a handsome marble timepiece and Lady's walnut Davenport. The gifts were presented by Mr. J. W. P. Fell, on behalf of the contributors, and were suitably acknowledged by Mr. H. Crisford. Potato Planting.-We are informed that since the wet has cleared off, potato planting has been carried on extensively, and though farmers can scarcely expect the extreme rates that last Gammer's crop realised, still existing prices or even a little less would make potato growing ...

LABOÜB LAW IN AMEBICA.- The contract kbouir law, -which forbids the importation of foreign labourers under contract for their future service in America, is leading to some queer complications. It has been held to extend to the case of a foreign" minister engaged abroad to take care of an American "* pastorate, and now the Treasury Department haB been'asked for a ruling as to whether the law would apply to the importation' of a corps' of European professors for the Divinity department of the Catholic University of America, located in Washington. Mr. Hepburn, solicitor of the Trea- * surer, gave an opinion that the immigration of foreign professors under any contract, expressed or implied, would be a violation of the law; but the Attorney-General being appealed to, that ofilcal declines to pass an opinion upon a hypothetical j case. . .

Maclean. THURSDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Maclean. THURSDAY EVEKING. Lecture.-Last night a lecture upon " The life of President Garfield," was delivered by the Rev. H. Allan, in the Wesleyan chnrch, Maclean ; the Rev. J. Burgess presided. The lecturer for about an hour and a half kept the attention of his audience, whLle he gave a most interesting and concise account of the career, from his birth to his death, of this noble example of manhood-James A. Garfield. After touching briefly upon the prin- cipal features connected with the life and sudden death of his father (when James was but a few years old) he (the lecturer) carefully traced the career of the future President through his earliest experiences at an'elemeatary school, to which he was carried on his sister's back at the age of 4 ; through his varied experiences as a farm labourer, mechanic, canal-boat boy, student, scholar and professor of languages; through his subsequent experiences as a military commander in the anti- slavery war ; and finally his later and bet...
Alluvial Rush near Maryborough [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Alluvial Rush near Maryborough , Another shaft has bottomed at tho Adelaide Lead rush, disclosing the trend of the gutter through Fawkner's paddock. Payable pros- pects were obtained from this shaft also, as much as fdwt. to the dish being realised. I This, considering the thickness of the wash (from 2ft :to 4ft), will /afford profitable returns, but it is believed the gutter will be " patchy," as portion of it, developed near , the source, some twenty years since, was of that description. The terms" stipulated by Mr. Fawkner for claims in the paddock-are- . 2s Gd on pegging out, 7s Gi on breakings surface, and 30s if payable gold be struck.. Each claim is 60ft wide, with a frontage from side to side of the paddock, thus ensuring the inclusion of the. gutter. The terms are considered very fair, and- all the paddock has been taken up, as also every available inch of land, on the supposed course of the lead. Miners from a" distance i have therefore no chance on the" rush. '

Commercial. OWING to Thursday being a public holiday no selec- tions were taken np at the Lands office. On the the Lower Clarence business has improved since the -commencement of " the crashing season, and in town we notice that our business men are -clearing off their winter stocks prepartory to laying in spring supplies. It is notified " that the Commercial Bank at Ulmarra, ls to be closed, owing to the business done not warranting its continuance. The stock market remains much the same. Stores are in strong demand, and this is sure to be main- tained as the spring advances, though. with exist- ing prices of fats it ia not likely that a material rise can take place. Mixesd cattle also sell readily, and owing to thé favourable season, stock of all descriptions are"iñ;"fair condition for the time of the year. The horse market is very quiet. To-day Messrs. Hawthorne and Small submit several teams of working bullocks and a draft or other cattle at South Grafton.. Maize shows but littl...
The Area Available for Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
, The -Area Available for Selection. IT ia estimated that at the present time, including reserves which are not required, there are 6J millions of acres in the eastern ? division and 9£ millions of acres of land in the central division, a total area of 16 millions of acres, available and suitable for selection, not including the leasehold areas of the eastern division which will shortly espire, and not including an estimated area of ll millions of acres of inferior lands. Of this 16 million acres of land, 1\ million acres are suitable for agriculture, 12\ million acres are suitable for new settlement for pastoral purposes, and the remaining 2 million acres are suitable for grazing lands in extension of present holdings. An analysis of the estimated area of land required for agricultural settlement will show that it was made in a liberal manner, . For example, it was assumed that all the land which has been brought under cultivation is situated with in conditional purchases, whereas,...

Wattle Cultivation. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Wattle Cultivation. I THE Victorian Minister for Lands has introduced a bill providing for leasing in 10,000 acre blocks for i 21 years, laud throughout the colony to the total extent of a million acres, which is unsuited to any other purpose. The bark of the wattle is a market- able commodity for tanning, and as the timber vegetates on the most sterile. country, waste landa might be turned to some profit bycultivating the tree. It certainly shows much foresight on the part of the Minister in thus dealing with land that was not likely to be otherwise settled. -A decoction made by boiling the bark of the wattle is a commonly recognised specific for dysentery.
