THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. The "Sour Grass" Country. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. The "Sour Grass'! cbjintry. DUBING the discussions on the Land Bill in the Assembly, and even for many years past, that part . of the, colony now distinguished as the Eastern division has been spoken of as the "sour grass" country, and the poorest of the three divisions in relation to the pastoral industry. We extract some figures from the Pastoralist which put quite another face upon the matter. » "The examination of the returns for 1888, pub- lished the other day, show how our grazing country "is stocked- , Sheep Cattle Horses Acres Eastern Division .. 15,781,341 .. 1,293,840.. 304,773.. 39,745;180 Central Division 19,201,609.. 247,821.. 75,916..51,390,015 "Western Division.. 11,520,519.. 81,240... 30,679...71,968,458 Totals .'...... 46¡503,4C9 .. 1,622,907 .. 411,408 163,109,653 " It will be observed from these figures that the Eastern Division contains 31 per cent, of the sheep of the colony, 80 per cent, of the cattle, and 74 per cent, of th...
Juvenile Plain and Fancy Dress Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Juvenile Plain and Fancy Dress Ball. ANOTHER of those attractive and popular enter- tainments was held in Jordan's Criterion Hall on Wednesday evening. The affair had been postponed twice, and though it was feared this would have interfered with its financial success, yet such was not the case, as there was a good attendance, the ladies in number greatly predominating. The juveniles mustered strongly, and were arrayed in quite a variety of fancy costumes, and the interior of the room presented an attractive sight when the numerous characters were engaged tripping the light fantastic. There was a good sprinkling of adults, who also participated in the amusement, and some appealed in fancy dress. The younger portion of the assemblage showed themselves to be well acquainted with the terpsichorean art, and with the announcement of each dance quickly filled the floor. The requisite music was contributed by willing volunteers, and gratuitous contributions of refreshments by parents and fr...
The Last Days and Words of Father Damien. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
The Last Days and Words ol Father Damien. THE Tablet publishes the following, account of the last days .of Father Damien :-" On the 28th (of March) he took to his bed, and on the 30th began his direct preparation for death by a general confession and renewal of his vows. Next day he received the Holy Viaticum. '.You see my hands,' he said, ' all the wounds are healing, and the crust is becoming black. Ton know that is a sign of death. Look at my eyes, too ; I have seen so many lepers die that I can't be mistaken. Death is not far off. I should have liked to see the Bishop again; but le bon Dieu is calling me to keep Easter with Himself ! God be blessed!' On April 2 Father Conrady gave him Extreme Unction. 'How good God is,' he said during the day, * to have preserved me long enough to have two priests by my side at my last moments, and also to have the good Sisters of Charity at the " Léproserie." That has been my Nunc Dimittis. The work of the lepers ia assured, and so I'm no longe...
Human Sacrifices on the Death of a King. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Human Sacrifices on the Death ,, ; :. Jf ot a King., , EROM New Calabar news was brought of a mo3t revolting sacrifice. It seems that a few months ago the old King of Eboe died, and, as is customary in that part of the country, the traders from New Calabar went up to pay their respects to the new monarch. The traders were aware that for a short time after the old King's death the " lu lu" rites are performed, but they thought that these ; were over. The deceased monarch's name was Itnphy; and, to the horror of the English traders, the "lu lu" ceremonies were at their highest when they entered the Eboe Town. The rites had been in opera- tion for about two months, and already about 40 people had been slain to appease the " lu lu " gods. The old king was then lying in a grave which had been dug for him. The hole was a large one and deep. Lying in the same grave were nine of the king's youngest wives, and their deaths had been brought about in the most cruel man- ner. Each of the poor c...

ANOTHEB BRIDGE.-£4000 has been placed upon I the Estimates for a bridge over the Williams River on the Dungog-Bandon Grove road. This was much needed, as the crossing, which is a ford, is dangerous.

The Land Bill. Its More Important Provisions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
The Land Bill. Its More Important Provisions. : THE Land Bill, having passed through the Assembly, is now'ready for consideration by the Legislative Council. Without attempt- ing any detailed reference to the 53 clauses which make up the bill, we (Herald) may notice some of its more important provisions, and at the head of these may be placed the great change proposed in the method of determining rents. Under the Act of ISSI/as authoritatively interpreted, the determination lay with the Minister for Lands, after appraisement by the local land board. From the Minister there was no appeal. His action could, of course, be challenged by Parliament; but such questions, if raised, were liable to be decided on party grounds. The new system is embodied in sections 6 to 9 of the Bill before Parliament. A Land Court is created which will be â Court of Eecord, and-have an official seal. ' It. will consist of three members, removable by the Governor, with the advice of,, the Executive Council, ...
"Live for Each Other." Marriage Ceremony of the Duke of Portland. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
" Live for Each Other." Marriage Ceremony of the Duke of Portland. I THE marriage recently o£ the.Duke of Port- land, was solemnized by the Eight Kevd. Dr. King, Bishop of Lincoln, assisted by other clergy. The Bishop bf Lincoln, it' will be remembered, is .being prosecuted before ah Ecclesiastical Court for alleged Ritualistic practices, whatever that may 'mean. The Some News thus refers to an j interesting, though somewhat, unusual fea true in the marriage ceremony. "We allude to what is termed the Bishop's sermonette, and the words he addressed to the bridegroom words it would be well for every newly married couple to take to heart, and carry with them through life. As the couple knelt before the altar, listening to Dr. King's eloquent sermonette, both bride and bridegroom looked somewhat restless. Presently, however, the pénétrât ing voice of the old clergyman, who wore none of the gorgeous robes in which he is usually attired at similar occasions, attracted everyone, and there ...
The Upper and Lower Houses. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
. The Upper and Lower Houses, WHATEVER resemblance our Assembly may bear to the typical John Bull in any other respect, in one, namely, his breeches pocket, there can be no doubt of" the strong family likeness. Naturally, the Council object to the principle of making the pay- ment of members work backwards, and cannot see the purity of the principle of men put in charge of public money, helping themselves. The Assembly cannot understand their proceedings being thus interfered with, and threaten to wipe the Council out of existence. It would behove the Assembly to choose another bone of contention whereon to fall out with the Upper House. Public sympathy in general may not be very largely with that body, but it is decidedly against the question of allowing our representatives to help themselves fnlUMnded &lt;?>"% cf tl'e State coffers ; more especially when the aualitvof work tbeveive in return is so wretchedly bad and inadequate. -Pastoralùt.

Macleay River. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
Macleay River. ?&lt;? MONDAY. FLOOD WATCHMAN.-The Kempsey council in the absence of a water brigade, have appointed a watchman to give intimation to the residents in the lower portions of the borough so as to prevent surprise in time of flood. The precaution is a commendable one, and dispenses with the necessity of the citizens watching anxiously the rising of the waters, with inconvenience by day or lantern in hand by night. BRIDGE AT KEMPSEY.-The members have been informed that the £G000 voted 7 years ago for bridging the river at Kempsey had lapsed. If the bridge could be constructed for this amount it most certainly should have been a work of the past, and the traflic fully warrants the outlay. OTJB CEMETERIES.-The condition of these repositories of departed ones is a discredit to civili- sation, and I understand that the matter of their improvement has been referred to the Department for consideration. I notice that a kindred state of things exists in many districts, an...
How Public Money is Spent. Report from the Auditor-General. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
i How Public Money is Spent. Report from the Auditor-General. I " IT is tins the public money is used without I Parliamentary authority," so says the AUDITOB GENEBAL. NO mean authority upon euch a question. Yet still the Parliament, whose officer he is, turns a deaf ear, and virtually permits the system of monthly Supply Bills to continue, a system under which all control over the expendi- ture is abandoned or rendered impossible. But then we suppose it is such a paying game to certain individuals that to return to legitimate Parliamentary government would be their absolute ruin. On December 31 the following advances appear in the accounts of the associated banks as untrans ferred to the public accounts, viz. :-The Casual Labour Board, £77,772 lis Sd ; refunds of pastoral rents, £43,106 11s ld ; Centennial Park accounts, £3728 8s 6d. Drafts of this kind upon the banks are practically extensions of the Treasurer's ad- vance beyond the limits of the Parliamentary vote for it. It need ...
The Sweating System. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
- ^ The Sweating System. A CITÏ SIEB.CII.VNT informs the New Zealand Herald that, although sweating is known in the mother country, it does not exist in Auckland to any great extent yet. There is a grinding competition in thc clothing manufacturing branches which is injurious to all concerned. He states that he would like to see the " log " about to bo fixed ia Dunedin introduced here, and points out how the present system works. A line of goods was being made up at certain trade prices at a factory. A firm went to that manufacturer, and said, " I will give you a largo order, to be executed at 10 per cent, under your present rate." The factory pro- prietor consulted his employees. He said his work was running out and they could take this work at 10 per cent, or lie idle. The employees, rather than go idle or work half time, agreed to execute the order on tho terms. What has been the result ? Other firms are obliged against their will to lower the wages of their hands in order to mee...

THURSDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889
TIIIHSDAÏ'S »EEXXffCrS. THE Legislative Council has decided on Tuesday as an extra sitting day. The second reading of the Land Bill was moved by Mr. Suttor, and after several members had expressed their viewB the debate was adjourned till Tuesday next. In the Assembly, after the preliminary business, ou the motion of the MINISTER FOR WORKS, it was resolved to refer to the Committee on public works, the Nyngan-Cobar Railway. He stated that the length of the line was a little over 80 miles, and its prospective cost £207,000, only £70,000 more than the expense of putting the road between Nyngan and Cobar in order would be. This was the first instalment of the railway, which would ultimately proceed to Wilcannia, and thence to the South Australian border. When that point of construction was reached, this colony would get its share of freight, af ter Broken Hill, which even now was as valuable as that of Newcastle. By one mine alone at Broken Hill, £16,000 in one month was paid in carria...
