Experiences at Port Derby. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 September 1886
Experiences at Port Derby I Mtu iWV Strapps, the leader of an Adelaide prospecting pnrty which was recently despatched to the Kimberley goldfields, gives us the following vivid description of the difficulties which were met with in landing -horses from tho steamers at Port Derby. He says : — ' One of the greatest hardships to the digger on arrival here is the landing of his horses. After paying £13 per horse (finding his own forage) from Adelaide, lie finds another £1 imposed for landing charge per lighter, or rather that amount for the privilege of throwing them into the mud of King's Sound. Would advise intending passengers to see that their tickets and passages state 'landed at Derby,' and to take no verbal promises from shipping agents, only to be broken on arrival- here. Our experience in landing horses was bitter enough. The place selected by the commander of the Dicky (the landing tender), lay imme diately abreast of the steamer, and named Port Torment. A low, scrubby, sandy ...

Important to Shippers. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 September 1886
. Important to Shippers. An action for £100, involving a question of the liabilities of shippers and shipowners, was I decided at the Adelaide Locnl 'Court on Wed nesday last, after some argument. The South ' Australian Reoxster says : — ' The plaintiffs wore the owners of tho well known fchin. Myrtle Holnie, and the defendants wore Messrs. ! Bnrford, of Adelaide, who, it was Bhown, bad shipped some casks of ' oleine' on bonrd the plaintiffs' vessol for London last year. On the vessel's arrival in London it was discovered that the oil had exuded from the casks and ' damaged a quantity of wheat which formed part of tho carpo. The Bhipownersbnd to pay I the demand mnde by the consignees for the damage to the wheat, and now sought to re cover ..'from , Messrs. Burford, w'hose oil had done' the' m'schief. The case was one of mixed law and fa.e.t, evidence being given as to the character of the casks, it beinpr contended by the plain tiffs that tho casks were insufficient, and declared b...

C. R. P. and A. SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 September 1886
C. R. P. and A. NOCIETY. Taking into consideration that Coraki may fairly be said to be situated about the centre of the Richmond River and district, and that its environs are thickly populated, with agriculturalists and pastoralists, we think it is quite time that a local society be formed at Coraki, so as to give the hundreds of farmers and others living between Wyrallah and Tatbam on one side, and the coast line on the other, an opportunity of exhibit ing their stock &c., without having to drive or convey them such long dis tances as at present. It's central posi tion would, perhaps, long ere now have caused it to be selected as the site for holding an Exhibition, had not other and more energetic influences been at work. This cannot of course now be remedied, but what can be done, and done easily and successfully, is to establish at Coraki a Central Richmond Pastoral and Agricultural Society on the same lines as that which has been found to work so successfully in Grafton...

A BAD JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 17 September 1886
A BAD JUD6K. The Ballina Pilot referring to the now notorious letter of Judge Murray's on the Grafton-Tweed Railway, deliber ately states ' That His Honor's views on this subject are generally shared in by a great majority of the residents of tnis district we can confidently assert.' Well, we are not much surprised at such an expression of opiuion from such a source, but we are rather bothered when we read further, 'We would particularly desire that the reiader should understand that our contention is that Nature having done so much for the coast districts, it is our duty to agitate for them, and not to cease until we get them' (sic). What we want to get at is not to cease until we get— what ? Coraki is somewhat in the same position as Ballina, only worse,, for we set no railways, no public buildings, no ' nothing,' but we are not imbeciles enough to accept the ipse dixit of a District Court Judge as asainst the evidence of scientific men and our own observation in a matter of such ...
