A Centennial Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 11 August 1888

A Centennial Story. 'G.B.,' in the Melbourne Herald relates the following as an illustration of tho way justice was dispensed in Governor Phtlip'6 time. 'One day a convict woman was passed down a track, which is now called Lower George street, Sydney, and which then led to the female convicts' hut. On her path she espied a parcel, which she picked up. Of course it was her duty to carry it to some official, but woman's curiosity induced her to take it to her quarters, to see its contents. It con tained a watch, a ring, nnd some dollars, which she heard had been stolen from an again, aud turned to take it to its owner. As she did so she was confronted by a constable — a convict like herself. He had seen her pick it up, and now arrested her. She. was carried before Judge Atkins, a very odious creature', who, summoning a jury of military officers, tried and condemned her to death. She appealed to Governor Philip. He was interested — she was beautiful and educated. ' If you tell me the t...

Ennis. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 11 August 1888

Ennis. (FROM OUIt CORRESPONDENT.} Oniru.utr. — With deep regret I have to record the unexpected death of the infant daughter of Mr. P. H. Secombe. J may bay that though this child had been delicate from birth, yet its parents had not the slightest fear of its death, cspe™lly at so early a date Quite a gloom was cas^over the neighbour hood here yesterday (Sunday) morning when it became known that the child hud died, and the greatest sympathy is felt for the afflicted parents. Owing to the satis factory information given to Mr. Thos. W. Palmer, J.P., coroner for the district, an inquest was dispensed with , and the body was buried to-day in a chosen site oil Mr. Andrews' property, known sis Riven Hill, beside the grave of Mr. Andrews' infant child. There was n good gathering of the friends of Mr. and Mrs. Secombe at the grave. The impressive service of the Wesleyan Church was solemnly and audibly read by the Rev. S. H.

Make Your Daughters Independent. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 11 August 1888

Make Your Daughters ladepeadeat. It is the refinement of cruelty to educate girls in the aimless fashion of to-day. Boys are trained to look forward to a career of usefulness, while girls grow up without any fixed purpose in life .unless indeed their hopes and ambitions centre upon marriage, as is moat often tlie case. Wliilo it IB natural and ricrht for srirla to look forward to marriage, it will ho well for them all when they fully appreciate the undeniable fact that niarriaee is a remoter possibility now than it was in the days of grandmothers, and that even those whose fondest droams may one day lie realised have much to do and to learn before they are ready for the life upon which they will enter with such high and happy hopes. No woman is qualified for marriage until she under scanas aomestic economy in an its iirancnes ; the management of servants and the care of the sick and children ; is proficient in needle work ; and, besides all this,' possesses a thorough knowledge of s...

Agricultural Labourers in Maxico. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 11 August 1888

Agricultural Labourers in Mssioo. The City of Mexico Pabellon Nacional news paper has been exposing the ill trettment to which agricultural labourers on haciendas in remote parts of the country are subjected. It says that in some districts of the State of Chiapas the indigenes use their natural dress : that is. what 'nature (rnve them, and nothing more. Thus they are found on the roads, thus they serve on the haciendas, aud thus they show themselves in the town. It even appears that they -are ignorant of the existeuce of hats, since they never cover the head. These wretched peons hire them selves out as beasts of burden to whomsoever desires to lease them. Tim arrangement is made on this basement: Wages, 4dols. per month, with from 25 to 30dols. in advance. Tlie obligation of the Indian draught animal is to fetch and carry on his back the load committed to him, whatever may be the distance. Still mom, they are sub-rented without right of receiving any excess of pay ment. As the poor...

Upper Bastings. ^PltOM OUR COlinKKPOSDEXT.1 We have had splendid weather during tho last, few weeks?— warm days und cold nights, with heavy frosts, which have killed the grass and given everything a wintry aspect. Rain is wanted to soften the ''round, as most; of our funnel's are preparing their land for next year's crop. I am pleased to say that Mrs. James Noakes, of the li!lleiil-orougli, who was very ill last week, under the treatment of Dr. Casement is ugain able to perform her ltoine duties. Tho rush to the Cells in search :-f gold is still the fever of the district.
