Co-operation amongst Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

I Cooperation áxQongst Farmers. THE operations of the C. and N. ; C. Farmers Association during the past half-year, iudicata unmistakably the benefits of combination amongst the agricultural classes. Till recently this Associa' tion has not had a fair opportunity of proving itself a successful organisation,' and the vicissi- tudes of drought, flood, blight, hostility of thoEt inimical to its establishment, and probably a certain amount of apathy by those who should have been supporters during its first years, were enough to have crushed it out or existence, were it not for the persistent efforts of those who felt they were contending for a principle to which was due the birth of,the Association. . With the return of- prosperous seasons, the business of the Associa- tion flourished,- showing that the spirit of accord- ing'it" support was not wanting, all that was needed was produce to consign. The profit of £1200 on a paid-up capital of "3000, eqnal to a rate of about 80 per cent., m...

The Jessie Matilda when last seen wai a complete wreck, her"port side being bilged and her back ' broken, lying high and dry on the beach; The schooner struck »tern first on a rocky bottom, and was caught in the breakers . and tossed like a cork high up on the beach. It was a perilous time for all hands, but happily they proved equal to the occasion, sticking to their ship until she was a hopeless wreck,-and then lanrting with comparatively little difficulty by means of the Bhip's dingy. The wreck lies on a small . beich north of Evans Head.

Australian Pasture Grasses. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

: - - Australian. Pasture: Grasses. No. I. Bï ANGUS MACKAÎ, F.C.S. Is the very wide range of subjects that come with- in the study of Australian agriculture, I know of no one of more importance in a national sense, nor pf interest for the individual enquirer, than that bearing upon the pasture grasses and fodder plants of this country. So much has been got from them, and so very little have they had in return ! This is the case especially in New South Wales. In Vic- toria and Queensland investigation concerning the native grasses has been commenced. In the north- ern colony, seeds of indigenous pasturage plants were collected and systematic efforts made to .test their qualities by cultivation. The knowledge thus gained, while nob sufficient to encourage a belief that varieties of indigenous grasses more suitable and valuable for cultivation than imported grasses are likely to be got, there is enough information available in proof of how immensely the indigenous pastures can be impro...

Rich Discoveries of Gold. A Rush to Northern Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

! Bich Discoveries of Gold. A Rush to Northern Queensland. THE recent rich discover es of gold in conglomerate on the Palmer Uiver, Queensland, have resulted in a rush being made for tunnelling areas. The extent of ground which can be held under this title being 1600ft by half a mile, it eau readily be understood that if the country was allowed to be pegged out under the tunnelling title that the whole area would soon get into the hands of a few persons. As tunnelling areas were intended to apply solely to quartz-reefing districts, the titles granted by the gold warden in these particular cases were brought into question. Application hiving been made to the Secretary for Alines to settle the problem, he considered that the con- glomerate is alluvial, not quartz-reefing, in which Opinion he was supported by Hr. Jack, the Govern- ment geologist. The local warden was, therefore, advised to this effect, and instructed to see that ali the miners got their rights in accordance with his in...

President of the United States. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

President of the United States. GrBEAi expectations were formed concerning the President of the United States, but, according to the latest reports, they are not being realised. General Harrison was selected as the Republican candidate for two reasons :-First, because it was regarded as certain that he would carry his own State, which hitherto had shown strong leanings to the Democratic platform ; and secondly, because he:was believed to be a particularly square man. He was a constant church-goer, a strict Sabbatarian, and a professor of the highest religious principles. " But as soon as he was seated in the Presidential chair he began the practice of nepotism on quite an extensive scale, and ever since he has carried on with unflagging vigour. Already he has established his principal relatives in com- fortable Government situations, and if the brake is not put on him the probability is that before half his term is expired he will perform a similar act of charity towards all his rel...

Timbers on Proposed Railway Routes Official Report. By Mr. Forest Ranger Rudder. IN response to an application made by Mr. John See, M.P., he has been furnished with copies of reports made hy Mr. Augustus Eudder, Forest Ranger, in 1884, on the Timber Reserves on the proposed line of railway from. Grafton to Glen Innes, and Grafton to the Tweed. They are as follows : S4-S48GP.-On this proposed additional reserva- tion, south of and adjoining the Clarence, F.R. No. 1, there is some excellent timber, chi» fly spotted gum, blackbutt, tallowwood,Ironbark and bluegum, &c. The blackbutt and tallowwood is mostly in the back parts towards the east. Some fine waterholes would be included. The proposed additional reserve adjoining Zuill's CP. No. 30, contains a quantity of useful timber, principally ironbark and spotted gum. The soil is poor, consisting of sterile stony ridges, and is of little or no value for settlement, but for its timber only. 84-84S7F.-On this proposed additional r...

TO THE EDITOR. SIB -Now that the cricket season is drawing close I would snggest that the different clubs an the river follow the example of Grafton and Brushgrove Clubs, and get asphalt wickets on the different Club grounds. It would be the means of promoting I cricket in this district, besides being of great benefit to the players, both in their play and saving them from the nasty knocks they so frequently get on ' the bad wickets which are so common, particularly on the lower parts of the river.

Sporting. The Eclipse Stakes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Sporting. The Eclipse Stakes. REFEREING to the win of Ayrshire in the Eclipse Stakes, carrying lOst 21be, the Melbourne Argus states : The Dake of Portland's good fortune in racing during the last and present seasons has been with- out â parallel in the history of the turf. During these two racing seasons he has won very nearly £70,000 in stakes alone, with Ayrshire, Donovan, Lemolina and others. Recently Ayrshire, carrying lOst. llb., won a £10,000 prize-the Kempton-park Royal Stakes-so that he alone has won £20,000 worth of stakes in two races, in each of which it is worthy of note that he carried top weight. That he was a great horse was proved rather more than a year ago, when he won the Derby _ad the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes. He ran unplaced in the St. Leger of his year, which was won by Lord Calthorpe's filly Seabreeze, and he ran second to the same filly for the Lancashire Plate of £10.222. Ayrshire succeeded in turning the tables on Seabreeze in the Kempton-park Royal Sta...

Things not Generally Known. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Things not Generally Known. THE " Cornhill" for June contains a paper entitled " Things not generally known,' con- sisting of a collection of odd and surprising answers given by the pupils at school exam- inations. Ancient history and the Bible supply the pabulum for most of these ingen- ious instances of mental confusion. Here is a specimen of the effects of the former on the juvenile brain : A slight similarity suffices to lure the luckless pupil from the proper path. Por instance, to the question, " Who was Plato?" comes the ready reply, "The Devil." I have long thought it wrong to have names so much alike, as Plato, Pluto, Plutus. To give such names is to lead boys into tempta- tion ; yea, to set traps in their way. While we are, so to say, in the lower reigons, I may observe that one boy gave an additional horror to a horrible stream by calling it "the river Stynx." Roaming, as it were, through the regions of the dead, I am reminded of a pupil who stated in writing that " a dea...

The course was in good order, having I received great benefit from the late rain, and probably was never seen in better condition. Large fields were the order, and the racing very interesting. The victory of Mr. Hunter's horse in the principal race of the meeting was one of the worst for the " books," as the son of Waverley was freely supported since the appearance of the weights, both straight-out and in doubles.
