IT IS NOT OFTEN [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1883

IT IS NOT OFTEN that we have the pleasure of announcing the fact that boot and shoe trunks are being sold at. 33£ per cent, off their usual prices. This means 4d. in every Is. spent in trunks returned ; 4s. trunks reduced to 2s. 8d. ; 4s. 6d. trunks reduced to 3s. ; 6s. trunks reduced to 4s. Don't make any mistake about it, but prove the fact by buying a trunk at E. Webb and Co.'s.

If you don't like mnpleasant things, please don't read any further. If you are not particular, go ahead. We regret we cannot ex plain ourselves euphemistically, but don't know how, and if we did we might not be understood. In every town there is a certain amount of rubbish. Bathurst has its rubbish and its rubbish heaps. The city fathers look after them pretty well. But Bathurst has something worse than these. It is generally carted out of town after 11 o'clock p.m. Where is it taken? If thrown down some valley, is it imagined the effluvia will find its way through the nostrils of the ratepayers in its attempts to rise from terra Jirma ? If thrown on the top of a hill, is this difficulty supposed to be overcome ? Perhaps so, and that is why it is carted up to the back of the racecourse on the common. A pretty use to make of our common. We ought...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1883

We always like.to give our protectionist friends a „ ieg-up ' when we get a chance. The Herald of the 3rd instant says : ' A very successful trial has been, made of the steamer ' Dargo,' which was built for the Gippsland Lakes excursion traffic, at Sydney, at a cost of £3000. The lowest Melbourne tender ,ras for £5000.' This proves what we wrote in out last issue, and which some persons doubted the truth of, viz., that in a protectionist colony things were dearer than in a free trade colony. Free-trade Sydney builds a steamer that gives satisfaction at no less than £2000 under the lowest tender from protectionist Mel bourne. Hurrah for Sydney. It is not only Sydney that can do things cheaply. Bathurst is in a free trade colony, and good things can be bought cheaper in Bathurst than Melbourne. Imagine Brooks' 200 yards glace cotton, all numbers, Id. per reel, or U. dozen. Horrockes* A or Al soft finish calico, one yard wide, at 3d. per yard, or 2s. 11 Jd for a dozen yards. Clark's 20...

4*rt8 atttt Janets THE Star of Bethlehem is now being watched for by astronomere, who expect its re-appearance this year or next. Thk Methodists have 134 chapels and preaching stations, and now own property to the amout of 165,000 dollars, in France. No Hottentot is permitted to marry more than eight &ttTS out of one family. Somebody else might want a chance. It may seem paradoxical, but it is nevertheless true, that a man cannot smoke a cigar too short unless he smokes it too long. It is with narrow-souled people as with narrow-necked bottles — the less they have in them the more noise they make in pouring it out. Dwaep marriages are by no means common, and when we hear of them we think it only right to give our Eriends the benefit of the news. According to an American paper, a remarkable wedding took place on the stage of the Buckingham Theatre, Louisville, last month, when Mr. John Zmaris, better known as Major Mite. 30 years of age and 42in. high, was solemnly married to...

CONTRACT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1883

CONTRACT WuttK. It is amusing to notice how tenders are called and recalled at times. A short time since tenders were invited for the erection of a gaol near Bathurst. It is now pretty generally known that some fellow, who did not know that 2 and 2 made 4, put in a tender ot £25,000 tor the job. The next lowest was, we believe, £89,000 ; the next £91,000, and one party, we think, went up to £125,000. An excuse was given that the ' disparity ' in the amounts was so great, therefore something must have been wrong, and j fresh tenders were called. Yes, something must have been wrong — very wrong indeed — but not with the plans or specifications, because they were not altered, as far as we know. Has it never struck you, reader, that this game may be played heavily, unless guarded against ? Suppose Tim Simkins knows of a big job at say, Hobgobbling's Creek. He has not the time to tender himself — is to busy at something else ; possibly could not make out an estimate if he had the time. H...

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1883

mr .Hgdrng f Mr. ' Last but not least ' may very truly be said of twelfth month, '83, as regards our empire city ; and regarding date of mine, I may apply it to the week just past, for during those seven days the records of Australian history will mark an important epoch. Nations are not at present born in a day, nevertheless it will be said of 8th December, 1883, that, on that day in the city of Sydney, the architects of United Australia finished the outline plan of her future greatness. Doubtless it will be added as noteworthy, that on the same day, a young Scotch nobleman was banqueted in Sydney Town Hall, and in pleasant but statesmanlike terms congratulated the Australians upon the event, and in that speech betokened the career of greatness that awaited him. If it so please the future historian, he may add that at the same time the Stuart-Farnell Land Bill was being discussed by the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales. As Australians we can surely say 'the lines have fallen...

Waste of Public Money. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1883

W&wk of $u&ttc Utottfjr. Some time ago, very shortly after the tens d thou sands were voted for a Government railway to Illawarra, the Bathurst Post condemned the idea as a waste of public money, stating that it would be many years before it would bring in any fair return, and that the chances were it would never be a paying concern, notwithstanding the fact that plenty of coal may be found in the coast district. We asserted that the train could not possibly compete against the water carriage, and we published returns show ing that 20,857 tons of coal were conveyed in America from Pittsburg to New Orleans, in thirty two barges, in fourteen or fifteen days, at a total cost of about £3,600. Had this quantity gone bv train it would have taken 1,800 American cars,* each taking over eleven tons, a whole summer to deliver it, and the freight bill would have been about £36,000. But vested interest has no thought for public funds. Strange to say, some members of the present ...

The Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1883

mt land gilt. No one can touch a more important question than the above. Since the year 1861 no more important Bill has been before the House. Consequently we feel that something must be said about it in these columns. We have, at times, felt surprise that the people have not risen as one man and stood firmly against measures that have been brought forward in the Legislative Assembly. From the first appear ance of the present Land Bill we could not under stand why mass-meetings were not held all over the country to protest against many of its unjust and iniquitous clauses. The cause has suddenly dawned upon us. The Government, knowing the mighty influence of the Press, apparently got the agents of several newspapers to telegraph from their localities to Sydney, stating that the Bill had been received with 4clat. It is true we saw many of these telegrams, and remarked that i£ was only a dodge to try and force a popular feeling in favour of the measure, then in its very infancy. We li...

THE STRASBURG CLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 February 1884

THE STRASBUSO CLOCK. Many persons have heard some wonderful stories about this famous clock. Among other things it is said that the inventer was looked upon with awe, and the inhabitants actually put his eyes out for fear that he might moke something that would damage them. We understand tnat the clock now beine1 shown at our Town Kail ir n.n pvaot. representation of tne original, which stood for many years in the Strasburg Cathedral. This latter has been removed and replaced by a monster, which is about 50ft. high, and more than 25ft. wide. AppUtorts European Guide Book, says ' Among its many performances are the following:... It indicates the hours, half, and quarter hours, and the bells are struck by automaton figures. A youth strikes the quarter, a man the half-hour, and an old man, as the figjire of time, the hour. This clock tells also the times' and seasons of ecclesiastical events, as far as they are associated with astronomical phenomena, the phases of the moon, and the equ...

While the taxes are being increased, necessity compels retrenchment. This can be done in more ways than one. Most people are under the impression that we must give up our little luxuries entirely. Of coursein some cases even this may be necessary, but by looking out and buying all your requirements at the cheapest place, ordinary ex penses can be kept down, and we may still have something left for luxuries. The farmers will require labour-saving machinery more than ever. Double-furrow ploughs must be used instead of single. A grand assortment of agri cultural machinery is now on view at E. Webb & Co.'s. An early inspection, is invited, Many persons felt when Dr. Spencer, Messrs. Simmons Atkins, and Slack were returned as aldermen, that it was a step in the right direction.

'Rough on' Cats.— An old gentleman of more than ordinary sagacity and disoernment (at least, that is his own opinion) and who lives in the country, has first discovered the way to catch that destructive little animal the native cat. ile trapped a crow by accident, on a fruit tree, this he suspended on a branch to scare other b|rds away. The native cat does not care for peaches, but he dearly loves dead crow, and comes up for a feast and gets trapped also. The above mentioned old gentleman, with such marvellous intellectual ability, gives it as a proba* bility thai^ineat of any description would do insted of the crow. As this is a most difficult animal to destroy, no doubt the discoverer will rank as one of the benefactors of the l!)th century, and the medium of this communication be exalted to the pinnacle ot fame,
