WEDNESDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

IN the Legislative Council the Attorney-General received the hearty congratulations of the Chamber on his recovery from his late sickness. The Monthly Supply Bill passed through all its stages without amendment. « The Payment of Members Bill wa3 introduced by Mr. SIMPSON, »nd read a first time. The second reading wa3 ordered for Wednesday next. In the Assembly, Sir HENRY PARKES, in answer to questions, said that in prospect of the Payment of Members Bill becoming law. it was desirable that a National Bank should be estab- lished. Definite instructions had been issued that Public schools should not be closed on Bank holi- days. Mr. M'MILLAN, in reply to Mr. John See, said that 20 6-ton trucks ot goods had been forwarded per railway from Sydney and from Newcastle for Guyra and stations northward to Wallangra, inclusive, from' 10th June to 26th July, 1889. 86 tons had been sent from Sydney, and 126 from Newcastle, at the maximum tonnage rates.

PARLIAMENT. By Telegram. TUESDAY'S SITTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

I PARLIAMENT. By Telegram. TUESDAT'S SITTM«. . IK the Assembly last night, the Standing Orders were suspended, and Parkes' Payment of Members Bill passed through all stages. The PREMIER, who had on the former occasion voted against the measure, introduced, it consider- ing as he had previously intimated, that it was no longer merely a bill to provide for the payment of members, but a means by which the Assembly was going to maintain its rights from infringement. Sir Henry spoke long and thoughtfully, and, as was expected, with the full sympathy of a very large majority, indeed, with the entire concurrence of all but a very few, amongst whom were Mr. Reid and Mr. Copeland. The most important announcement of the Premier was one of regret for having in a hasty moment last week threatened the Legislative Council with political extinction. Since then he had thought better of the relationship and had decided to withhold his hand. Mr. REID followed with a brilliant speech in opposition to ...

Brushgrove. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Brushgrove. THURSDAY. THE flood water, has not done any damage except to the grazing land. At the approach to the wharf was the only place in the township it broke over the banks. This spot is a standing disgrace, for to get on to the wharf one must either get down a précipitons bank or walk to the knees in mud. I think it a great shame that the approach is allowed to remain in this state in a place where there is so much traffic. If our Road Super- intendent were to visit the spot he would not allow many hours to pass before a set of men would be at work to make a track, at all events for foot traffic. . ON Friday almost every one took the precaution of removing their stock to the higher lands. The water did not rise to within about four feet six inches of the big flood of '87, about the same as the flood of February following. Over 13 inches of rain fell here during' the week. From Tuesday till Friday the rain never ceased for one moment. The back waters on Cowper side did not ris...

Glen Innes. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Glen Innes. TUESDAY. HOSPITAL BALL.-Arrangements have been made for holding a hospital ball on September 3rd. The ladies have taken the matter in hand, and are zeal- ously working it np. PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.-The annual meeting of this society was held on Satur- day. Most of the business transacted was of a formal nature. The method of election of officers is similar to that of the Clarence society. Two were nominated for the Presidentship, five for Vice presidents (two be elected), and 61 for the 36 seats in the committee. FARMERS' UNION.-At a well-attended meeting held on Saturday, it was decided to form a union at Glen Innes to be termed " The Farmers and Stock Owners* Union." 21 were enrolled as members, the fee being fixed at 5s per annum.

Armidale. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Armidale. TUESDAY. FARMERS' UNION.-At a meeting of the mem- bers held yesterday the officers of last year were re-elected. A change was made in the salesmen, Messrs. Moore and Co. being elected to the position. An expression was made at the meeting to the effect that a limit should be made to the charges that were imposed by the salesmen for commission. PURCHASE OP THE GAS WORKS.-The meeting convened to consider the propriety of the Borough Council purchasing the Gas Works was well attended. It will be remembered that the Alder- men referred this question to the decision of the ratepayers. The Gas Company offered to transfer the works and appendages for £10.000 in 6 per cent, debentures, or £9500 cash. The mover of the resolution affirming that the works be pur- chased, stated that £600 was annually paid for lighting rates, and if they bought the Gas Works for £9500, borrowing the money at 6 per cent., equal to £570 per annum interest, they would thus reduce the lighting rate by £30...

Ulmarra. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

: L Ulmarra. I FRIDAY. I Upper Coldstream Punt.-My attention hat been called by more that une ratepayer to: the wretched accommodation provided by the Council for the pnntman at the above-named ferry. To look at the wretched apology for, a hut, or rather gunyah," one would think it impossible almost iór aman to live there; a few sheets of iron fo walls, a few more sheets for a roof : a regular tin box. The place must be a perfect oven in; Bummer time, ¿nd an ice-chest in winter. A tent would in my opinion be far more preferable, both for com- fort and appearance sake. To give an idea of the place to those who have not nad the opportunity of seeing this very primitive piece of architecture, the following remarks may be useful. It is con- structed of sheets of iron, both walls and roof, the latter almost flat. The whole affair has ' been . standing lord knows how long, certainly seven years to my knowledge, and has now more .the appearance of a sieve than a unman habitation. In fact d...

Brushgrove Shed. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Brushgrove Shed. j SIB.-In your issue of 30th ultimo. I find that it " has been officially noted to our Member that repairing road to public wharf is under considera- tion." Our Member has been written to for about 2 years on this subject, and now that it is almost impossible to get a dray to the shed, and a Govern- ment notice is posted up in the shed warning people not to u¡¡e it as it is unsafe, it is under con- sideration to make a road to a shed that is likely to collapse at any moment. ' Tens of'thousands of bags of maize are received in this Brushgrove shed from the Coldstream, Cowper, Southgate, Woodford Island, and now the farmers will have to use Cowper wharf at mach inconvenience, as there is no shed there; but, thank goodness,'our Member has been written to for about 2 years on this subject, so I hope to hear something re Cowper wharf shed being under considération. A good third of the shippers of the Clarence have no shed, to place their produce in prior to ship- ment O...

Copmanhurst Harvest Festival. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Copmanhurst Harvest Festival. FOB the last week great preparations have been made for the twofold purpose of thanking God and rejoicing in the abundant crops now safely garnered. This annual festival was to have taken place at an early date, but, owing to the late flood, it was postponed till yesterday. Buggies loaded with people, horsemen and pedestrians came from Stockyard Creek, Apple Tree Fiat and the surrounding parts, and at 2 o'clock the pret:y little church of "Holy Apostles" was crowded, and many standing outside to hear and join their voices in thanksgiving to God for his goodness in blessing them with a bountiful harvest. The church was very prettily decorated with maize, oranges, and flowers mingled, and text of scripture most taste fully done in red, on a white ground placed over the Communion table. These pretty symbols of rejoic- ing were executed by the Misses M'Kee. assisted by the Misses Davisons and several other ladies, who never weary in working for the church a...

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] SYDNEY, TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Política! and Social Letter, j LFrom our Special Correspondent.J SYDNEY, TUESDAY. THIS afternoon the Opposition held a meeting to consider what action should be taken in regard to the Payment of Members' Bill, which the House threw under the table immediately after it came back from the Council last week. Amongst the leaders of the party there is a feeling that the course proposed to be taken by Sir HENRY PARKES is inexpedient, and the probability is, the majority of them will be in favour of recovering the Bill from its ignominous position under the table, and sending it back to the Upper House with a message that the Assembly disagrees to the amendments made therein by the former body. By many people it is thought that Sir Henry Parkes' action in inducing the Assembly to lay aside the Bill, and his subsequent aetion in giving notice of his inten- tion to ask permission to introduce a bill providing for the reconstruction of the other Chamber, were parts of a plan he had deliberate...

Woolgoolga Moorings. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Woolgoolga Moorings. SIR.-I wish to call the attention of our Member (Mr. John See) to the Secretary of the Marine Board's letter to the " Progress Association" of Woolgoolga, as reported in your issue of 30th ultimo, in which that gentleman pointed ont that the laying down of moorings was a matter for private enterprise." I know that when Mr. See's attention is drawn to this insolent piece of arrogance on the part of the Board, he will let them hear from him in a no uncertain manner. I should like to know, whose private enterprise facilitated the shipping requirements of Sydney Harbor, Newcastle, Wool longong , Kiama, Byron Bay, and other ports. Are the deserted selectors of the North Coast districts, starving through the incapacity of the Government to deal with their requirements, to still farther put their hands in their pockets to provide the necessary facilities for the shipment of their produce ? The North Coast districts have many friends in and out of the House, as seen by ...

Jetties on the Coast. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Jetties on the Coast. THIS week another selector who has settled near Woolgoolga has abandoned his land, on which he had hoped to make a permanent home for himself and family, owing to their [sic] being no jetty pro- vided for egress to market for his produce. Sums, are noted on the Estimates for erecting jetties at Coff's Harbour and Woolgoolga, and after waiting patiently year after year, the residents of the former place are coolly informed that nothing can be done till the Estimates are passed. A few thousand pounds would construct a jetty at either place, and though repeatedly forced on the attention of the   Government, these essentials to the development of the Coast districts are cruelly shelved. The feelings of the unfortunate selectors who are locked out from market privileges may be imagined at such tantalising ignoring of their oft-repeated demands. While our legislators are endeavouring to plunder the Treasury, by voting themselves remuneration for services...

A Very Hard Case. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

A Very Hard Case. MR. S. E. APSEY writes in the Daily Tele- graph advocating the construction of jetties at Coff's Harbour and Woolgoolga. The settlers here are irretrievably ruined. They cannot possibly last much longer. Many have already been forced to give up their holdings and seek a livelihood elsewhere, either through inability to find remunerative employment in the district - the farms afford them none-or because the mortgagee refused to wait longer. The land upon the banks of the Upper Orara, situated within six to 15 miles of the proposed site of the Cof'fs Harbour jetty, is so rich, so splendidly timbered and watered, so nicely situated, that the Govern- ment some years ago proclaimed it a "special area." Having " proclaimed " the land, the people's money was spent in employing surveyors to measure it off into suitable farms. So rich was the ground that 160a. was settled as the maximum that any man should be allowed to take. They also deter- mined that although the usual c...

The Doom of the Kangaroo. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

The Doom of the Kangaroo. NATOUALISTS and lovers of animals in the old country hear with deep regret that tho ' ~* kangaroo ia becoming extinct. Startling aa i this intelligence is, it appears to be only too true, and unless the process of wholesale . destruction is speedily arrested, the Aus- tralian lands will be bereft of their most familiar marsupial. This impending declino and fall of the kangaroo are apparently due to the fact that its skin possesses considerable market value, and to obtain these easily saleable skins, unscrupulous persons have' been massacring kangaroos even of tender years, with the result that the racéis dwind- ling down terribly. The people in Australia and Tasmania are, it is well to note, not J unmindful of all that such a contingency I would mean, and an attempt is being made I to procure a " close time " for kangaroos from 1st January to 1st May, This provi- sion, supplemented by a suggestion made by one of the chief tanners in the United States-whithe...
