RICHMOND-ESKBANK RAILWAY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

RICHMOND-ESKBANK RAILWAY.. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I have written many letters upon this subject to the public press, both metropolitan and country, but I never dreamt it would devolve upon me to have to answer a communication from Mr. G. C. Johnson, the one-time warm supporter of this railway. But I am not now going to inflict a long letter upon you or your readers, the main points of the case are well understood by all the inhabitants of these districts. Now, it may be news to Mr. Johnson to lkarn that our scheme fdr tapping the G.W.R., by a line from Rich mond to Eskbank, is very favourably received in the Public Works Officfe, and we are assured , that if the remainder tof the route to be surveyed proVesks practi cable as that which Mr. Sharkey has already been over, we shall have the support of the department. It astonishes me that there is yet found anyone who still believes in the efficacy of ,the Colo Valley scheme, as a means of relief to the' G.W.R. The entire question turns o...

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

^ \ CHAPTER IV. Circumstances arose which brought about the desirableness of the union soone^T than he had expected. ? ! ; A-bou"t six months after V&ne's visit ^ Langport, he was sitting one day in his rooms at Cambridge .. when the servant., entered with a telegram. It was from Nina, to say. that her father had met with a bad accident, and was not' expected to live, and was anxious to see Vane before he died. Hastily Vane packed a few things together, and hurried away by the night mail, reaching Langport in the early morning. Making his way to Cliff Cottage, he found Nina very pale and anxious. Her father had been watching some repairs on the Sea-Gull, when the hatch way on which he was standing gave way, and he fell several feet into the hold, in juring his spine in such a manner that paralysis set in, and he was sinking fast. When he entered the Captain's room, he found him propped up in bed, and looking very weak. Calling Vane to his bedside, he said to him,' Ah, Vane, ...

It is with the hope of stirring up the proper spirit in our local volunteers, and also in the young men in and around the vicinity of the town, with the object of encouraging the latter to join the com pany, that I make bold to write these few lines. One of the measures lately adopted tip the authorities to strengthen our general defences is the increasing the number of men in the partially paid c...

WINDSOR BOROUGH COUNCIL. The ordinary meeting was held on Wednesday evening. Present-The Mayor, Aldermen Simons, Primrose, Dean and Fitzpatrick. QUESTIONS. Alderman Primrose asked the Mayor: Are you aware that a man (the lamplighter) permanently employed by the Council, competes lor work by tendering for the emptying of water closets ? The Mayor: No. Alderman Primrose stated that unless something was done he would put a motion on the business paper, authorising the Council to call for fresh tenders for the lighting of lamps. Alderman Dean said that the lamplighter had got into the habit of taking French leave, in the event of not seeing the Mayor, and he (Alderman Dean) came upon him a day or two since drawing water for himself, when he should have been at his work. On being spoken to, the man said that it was scarcely worth while to go to work for three hours. He afterwards called on the speaker and said he had the Mayor's permission to draw water. The Mayor said that the lamplight...

FROM DAY TO DAY. Only from day to day We hold our way, U ncertain ever, Though hope and gay desire Touch with their tire Each fresh endeavour. Only from day to day We grope our way Through hurrying hours ; Hut still our castles fair Lift to the air Their glistening towers. And still from day to day Along the way Beckon us ever, - »-. To follow, follow, follow, O'er lull and hollow, With fresh endeavour. Sometimes triumphant, gay, The bugles play, Aud trumpets sound l'Yom out those glistening towers, And rainbow showers Bedew the ground. Then " sweet, O sweet the way," We smiling say, And forward press Willi awift impatient feet. And hearts that heat With eagerness. Yet still beyond the gay Sweet bugles play, The trumpets blow, Ilowe'or we (lying haste, Or lagging waste The hours that go Still far and far away, Till comes the day We gain that peak In Darien ; then, blind No more, we find, Perchance, what we do seek.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. -- Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you n«ws, indifferent good to either. TAMING OF THR SHREW. A rather good story is told by the late Mr. Ser geant Ballantine of the one time well-known bar rister, "Johnny" Williams (afterwards Judge Williams). "Johnny" was defending a prisoner on a capital charge, and at the urgent solicitation of his instructing attorney, although against his own will, asked a question of a witness, the answer to which convicted his client. " Johnny " turned angrily to the unfortunate cause of this disaster, and in the harshest tones said to him, " Go home, sir, and cut your throat, and when you meet your client in H ; beg his pardon." Out in the back country one generally manages to become acquainted with the use of fire-arms; game is abundant, and a good shot can pot any thing from a kangaroo to a nigger. It is no credit to a man to be able to take home a bag of game every time he takes his shooting-iron out. There fore a Parr...

POETRY. A RELIC OF THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 September 1888

I'OETBY. A RELIC OF THE PAST. Into the dim and sombre sky Kises the quaint old castle tower, A relic of ancient chivalry A stronghold and a power l-'or bold defence, when war was waged In days pone by. Upon the lieath Below, in fiery strife engaged, A thousand warriors fought till death Gave to the valiant force besieged Victory's blood-bespattered wreath. Fast foil the warriors, bold and brave, Under deadly fire from their foes ; No quarter given-none they crave Nought but victory or death must close The fight. The leader of the band, Youthful, yet possess'd of lion's heart Wielded with a strong and valiant hand His weapons, till a deadly dart Vierc'd his breast. Round their chieftan stand His henchman, and as breath departs They still fight on, and on, till Fate Decrees against their cause. Their blood, Which dyed the sward around the castle gate, Was shed for glory and the common good. Ceuturies have gone-the relic stands Its moss-grown walls, now ivy-clad and gray Defy the pow'r...
