Letter to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Letter to the Editor. SIB.-Once again we are brought to a point in the history of our railway agitation, indicated by a Ministerial promise. Along the line of the history of the past 20 years, we call up recollections of many like pointa reached. It is said that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, but the road to the. point when our railways shall be accomplished, is literally strewn with broken',Ministerial promises, and humbug. If the Government had any sincerity at all in dealing with our railway proposals, they should long since (and before they frittered away the money authorised by Parliament to construct them) have come to a decision as to their being carried out. All we have yet ia a Ministerial promise for something to be done in the sweet by and-by. The Government has just taken about 20 yearB to explore, survey, inquire into, discuss, and consider proposals for railways in these districts. Now there is another farce added to the play-bill a further exploration...

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

Richmond River. THÜBSDAY. DISTRICT COÜRT.-Judge Murray opened the Lis- more District Court on Monday with a moderate list. The most important case was W. Eobb v. M'Queen and wife for slander, damages being laid at £200. Bis Honor awarded plaintiff £5 damages, for being told he was not fit to eat dogs' meat. THE ROAMS.-The roads throughout the dis trict are generally bad, some of them next to impassable. That from Woodburn to Chatsworth is reported to be in a shocking condition, and the coaches frequently get bogged. ROMAN CATHOLIC.-The Passionist Fathers who conducted a mission at Grafton, opened a similar one at Lismore on Sunday. They have been joined by a third also from Sydney, and have succeeded in attracting good congregations to hear their dis- courses, which pourtray much eloquence in de- livery. CANE-COTTING.-The Broadwater mill has. sent out 21 gangs of cutters to varions parts of the district, who have commenced operations on the cane on as many plantations. These gangs w...

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

Lawrence. - . THURSDAY NIGHT. I Commercial.-Business generally seems to have assumed its- regular appearance, in fact. I might say, judging from the large amount of traffic to and from the wharves during the past week, a stranger to the fact could never realise that we have had a flood at all. Since Monday something approaching 600 bags of maize have been delivered at the C.B. and M.R.S.N. Co.'s. wharf, and about 200 at the Public wharf, and I have it upon very good authority, that not. more than one-half , has been drawn in that is intended for shipment. It has been ramouredthat further arrivals are antici* -pated in Sydney from Foreign places, and I really .hope that our agriculturists may soon arouse them- selves to the fact that some united action will be -necessary to create another sphere for the sale and consumption of their grain. Sydney has been too long fattened at our expense, and at present there is no alternative but to continue being dependent upon that market. If we h...

The Victorian Railway Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

The Victorian Ballway Policy. THE Railway question, in 'Victoria presenta some peculiar aspects. Though'the smallest of the Aus- tralian colonies, it has möre miles of" railway open than any other, excepting New South Wales. In Victoria, however, the linea are chiefly through agricultural lands, upon which resides a dense population. This makes them profitable. In New South Wales the linea are chiefly through pastoral country, upon which resides a minimum popula- tion-the object of such lines being to draw the wool of these districts to Sydney and otherwise centralise trade at that place. This tends to make the New South Wales lines less profitable than those of Victoria. There are at present in Victoria 2S91 miles of railway, constructed or in course of con- struction, and 1200 miles of these have been taken in hand during the last four' years. The average cost of Victorian railways per mile, rolling stock included, is only about £5000. What contrasts compared with New South Wales,...

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Echoes and Opinions. SoiiE people seem to think that if Byron Bay can, by the expenditure of a pot of money, be made a reasonably safe harbour a serious blow will be dealt out to the Clarence. There need be no fear upon that score. The making of such a harbour, when the country can afford it, can in no way affect the port or trade of the Clarence River unless beneficially. Any exception taken to the Byron Bay experiment is based upon far higher grounds. Practical men have fearlessly expressed their opinion as to the feasibility of such a proposal. What the disinterested public wish to be satisfied upon in the first place, is that the proposed works are not being pushed forward by a clique of Sydney people largely interested in dummied and otherwise acquired land in the neighbourhood, for purposes of their own rather than for the public good. In fact they want to be satisfied that any work in the way of providing harbour accommodation at the Bay will have a beneficial result in provi...

Sporting. The Cricket Season. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

Sporting. The Cricket Season. THE cricket season is approaching, and on Satur- day a number of the Warwicks entered the field and held their first practice. Others will doubtless shortly follow suit. The Brushgrove club are laying an asphalt wicket for the coming season, and the advantage of having ^perfect wickets is becoming more recognised. Last year cricket was entered into with a zeal never so universally dis- played in the district. In the city, three clubs strove for the superiority, which must be admitted was gained by the Alberts. The Park was improved by the erection of a pavilion, and the laying of an asphalt wicket in the centre of the Oval. The principle of making fixtures by representatives of the various clubs was an improvement on 'the former method of arranging matches and will doubtless be adopted again. The Electorate match was deferred till rather late in the season, the result being an easy victory for Grafton. We would suggest that two of these matches be playe...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MORNING, 3RD AUGUST, 1839. Police Superintendency. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MORNING, 3RD AUGUST, 1839. Police Superintendency. THE INSPECTOR-GENERAL'S communication with regard to the proposed separation of the North Coast districts from, the existing Superintendency of Armidale, is an official burking of the proposal for which there is insufficient warrant. It would be interesting for instance to learn the details of the reports referred to. Whence did they come and from whom? We hope they were not from persons   who, for their own advantage, seek to magnify their office at the public expense. It is the more important that these reports should be carefully scanned for the reason that they appear to have induced the INSPECTOR-GENERAL to ALTER an opinion which he, we believe, held when he last visited these districts, and when the necessities of the district and his knowledge of it were fresher in his mind than possibly they were when he wrote his letter of April last. Most certai...

National Sentiment. An Australian Individuality. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 August 1889

National Sentiment. An Australian Individuality. THE Rev. Dr. Strong lectured last week at the Working Men's College (Melbourne) on "National Sentiment." The lecturer pointed out that during the present century there had been a noticeable development of national feeling, which was exemplified by the successful straggle for freedom in Italy, by the consolidation of the German Empire, and by the incessant efforts of the states of Eastern Europe towards independence. The civil war in America was an illustration of the same feeling which waa also showing itself in Australia. Parallel to this manifestation, how- ever there was a growing regard for cosmopolitan- ism, due to the diffusion of knowledge and increased facilities of locomotion. After tracing the idea of a nation from the primitive theory of blood rela- tionship to the more modern view of independence and community, of interest amongst its members, Dr. Strong suggssted that a further expan- sion was inevitable, which would incl...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, MONDAY. The Weather.-Unfortunately for the com- mercial and agricultural interests of the Lower Clarence, the weather outlook presents anything but a promising appearance, and brings up unpleas- ant doubts Ski to the repetition of the painful experiences of the past few weeks. On Friday night, about ten o'clock, rain began to fall heavily, and continued incessantly until about 9 o'clock on Saturday morning. From that time up to 4 o'clock in the afternoon heavy showers fell with but short intervals, and since then we have scarcely had five minutes of fair weather. Some of the showers were tremendously heavy, the rain coming down literally in sheets. All the creeks and gullies have overflowed the banks, and traffic has almost been suspended. Between here and Lawrence the road ia almost impassable, some parts of it being completely covered with water, in places to a depth of over two feet. In the other direction the road is passable, but extremely heavy, making...

The LatestJaMegrams. ù- London, Sunday. THE Eoyal grants were passed by,a Com- mittee of the House of Commons without alteration. In consequence of the heavy gale the proposed Naval Review before the Emperor of Germany had to be postponed. A decisive battle has occurred between combined British and Egyptian forces, under General Grenfell, and large bodies of Dervishes, at Toski, Soudan.

Richmond River. SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

Richmond River. SATURDAY. SILTING OF THE SOUTH ABM.-Since the late flood j the South Arm has silted up considerably, and needs immediate attention. It is the highway for a large amount of trade to Casino and several other centres, the residents of which will be put to considerable inconvenience if navigation is blocked. IMPORTING CATTLE.-Though the Richmond has been exporting stock heavily this season, yet it had an importation recently of 156 head of dairy cattle, which were trucked to Tenterfield from the Southern districts, and then driven here. MATRIMONIAL.-A number of your readers will be interested to learn that Mr. S. T. Northcott, who has been a lecturer on Protection in this dis- trict of late, has joined the Benedicts. Mr. F. A.

Harwood Island. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

Harwood Island MONDAY. NEW FILL.-Crushing was commenced on Tuesday afternoon, when both mills were worked for a short tina e. Everything worked successfully in connection with the Chatsworth plant. The Har- wood plant has only been partially worked, pending some aeration in the chain that works the megas elevator. The new Schreder, which forms an important part in the addition of appliances in connection with the Harwood mill, works satis- factorily. The cane passes through the Schreder before entering the rollers, and is thereby smashed into small pieces, which allows the rollers to j operate with great effect, and consequently a large ! percentage of juice is obtained. The Schreder is an American invention, and the first of the kind used by the C. S. R. Company. SKATING.-The promoter of the skating business I here intends to run it twice a week, Tuesday and I Thursday nights, so that lovers of this popular amusement will have ample chance of gratifying their desire.

A Fight Between Officials. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

A Fight Between Officials. A CASE which excited considerable interest was heard at the Goulburn police court, when A. D. Moriarty, of the Harbors and Eivers Department, recently appointed to act as inspector of certain works in connec- tion with the water supply, preferred a charge of assault against Edward Woodhart, engineer of the waterworks. The evidence was to the effect that on Friday morning last Woodhart was in the neighbourhood where Moriarity's work was proceeding, when the latter ordered him away. Some heated words passed, culminating in a struggle, when both men rolled down the embankment. Woodhart then told Moriarty to put up his hands and blows were exchan- ged and some exceedingly plain language was used. The defence was that Woodhart, as the council's engineer, had a perfect right anywhere about the works and that Moriarty was the aggressor. The case was dismissed, no order being made as to costs. The squabble was merely the culmination of a disagreement which has exi...

Commercial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

Commercial. BUSINESS is again in a state of suspense owing to the wet weather, and yesterday very little was done. Traffic by land and water is almost entirely suspended, and it will be some days before it can lie resumed. Notwithstanding the rain, there was a good attendance of buyers at the'stock sale held at South Grafton on Saturday, and fair prices were obtained. The present flood will do but little damage to grass, and it is probable there will be an ( early spring this year. An important sale of very superior furniture will be held at Ulmarra to- morrow by Mr. H. Maurice, (in conjunction with Mr. J. H. Munro), and on Friday Mr. T. Bawden ?will submit at Copmanhurst, the old Public school site and buildings. The maize market is unaltered, but it is probable the heavy weather on the coast ?will affect the price. The local markets are un- changed. Messrs. HAWTHORNE and SMALL report seUing by auction at South Grafton on Saturday, team of 20 bullocks, waggon and tackling, for £150...

Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

Cricket. i ANOTHER AUSTRALIAN ELEVEN.-Lord Harris bas expressed the opinion that the promoters of the next Australian team would do well to consult the English County Cricket Council with respect to the arrangement of a programme of matches. If this course were not adopted he predicted that the ; visit of the team would be a failure. Bonnor, the well-known cricketer, arrived in Melbourne last week. An offer was made to him to join the Australian Eleven promoted by Boyle, but he declined to give a definite answer just ye1-. Spofforth, he said, is in good health. Questioned regarding the sending home of a team of colts, Bonnor considered they would have an excellent chance of winning, and that the affair would be a great success. It would be useless to send any- thing to the old country except the very cream of Australian cricket. The best team that it is possible to get should be sent, otherwise those who do go will come back sad. The handsome memorial stone, which was subscribed for...

Technical Education. Contemplated Important Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

Technical Education. I Contemplated Important Changes. THE Minister for Public Instruction, Mr. Carruthers, during the time he bas been in office, has devoted considerable attention to the question of technical education. It is contended that the Board as at present constituted is.large and unwieldy, the bulk of the work being done by a few of its members, who have devoted themselves, with much self-sacrifice and enthusiasm, to their voluntary labours. Classes are largely attended, both in Sydney and in the country districts, and applications are daily being received, from all parts of the colony for additional classes and additional instruction, by men of special qualifications. "Within the last few days applications have come in from 197 intending students at Broken hill, chiefly from those desiring instruction in science and pursuits appertaining to mining. It is held that it was never intended that the Sydney Board should control the operations of the whole of the colony in rega...

The Sugar Market. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

The Sugar Market. Messrs. GIBBS, BRIGHT AND COMPANY report : iA large quantity of China sugar arrived during: the past fortnight, consisting of best whites, which are forced upon the market at auction, and at present show a reduction of £3 per ton. There is a good demand for grainy yellows. Finest whites, £35 ; good whites. £33 ; bright yellows, £30 to £31 ; dark yellows, £2S to £29. Browns are scarce, and worth £26 to £27, all prices duty paid. Stocks of all sugars are Bmall, but are likely to be augmented by some China whites from Melbourne, if not sold there, as we learn the sonthera markets are weaker. We are inclined to believe that the sudden fall in white sugars is only temporary, and that ina few weeks we shall see a better demand, and higher prices. We have received the first of the new season's sugar from Bundaberg, and have sold yellows up to £30. We understand that crushing has been delayed in the southern districts of Queensland, and as far north as Bundaberg, through e...

I " Aquatic; : HANLAN'S OPINION OF SEABLE.-At San Fran- cisco Hanlan was : interviewed by a sporting reporter. The Canadian told the Pressman that Searle is one of the most wonderful athletes Australia has produced ; remarked Hanlan "He far outclasses' such men as Beach and Kemp, and no one will deny that both are great oarsmen. Searle has the advantage of a most powerful constitution, and is a phenomenal stayer. He is also a spurter of the most extraordinary kind. He starts away on a race at forty-five strokes a minute and will keep it up a couple of minutes, and then slow down to. thirty-six and still keep flying. After a while he runs up the strokes again to forty-five, and keeps alternating that way right through the race. The man that beats him is certainly entitled to the championship of the world. I know of no one who can beat him except it is O'Connor. O'Connor has. speed enough to keep even with Searle ; I am certain of that ; but it remains to be seen whether he can go the...

The Clarence Entrance. Bad News for Harbors and Rivers Department [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 6 August 1889

The Clarence Entrance. j Bad News for Harbors and Rivers Department I THE following letter appeared in the Aus- tralian Star signed,'* Master Mariner." The late flood has devastated 26 years' labour on the Harbors and Eivers Depart- ment at the Clarence River Heads. The flood has completely blocked the south channel running down by Tamba that has cost the country thousands of pounds trying to keep it opened, but the works of nature took effect on the north side, and opened a fine channel, carrying with it a good depth of water varying from 20ft. to 30ft. This is the second time during the past two years and a half this north channel has been opened, but, as there is nothing done to aid nature in keeping this channel opened, owing to the ground being all a sand-flat, the north-eastern gales silt it up again. Now, as nature has laid her base-line down show- ing the exact course of the natural channel to be kept opened at the Clarence entrance, is it not time that something should be d...
