POETRY. NIGHT UPON THE RIVER.—AN AIRY TRIFLE. (A REMINISCENCE OF THE HAWKESBURY.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888

P0ETBY.. NIGHT UPON THE RIVER.-AN AIRY TRIFLE. REMINISCENCE OF THH HAWKESBURY.) Whkn the shades of evening fall Upon the ivy-covered wall, When the air, with odours dense, From Flora garnered by the way, Breathes forth the sweetest frankinsence When the last rays of dying day Depart behind the Western stairs, And chime of bells and sound of song Relieve us of our worldly cares, 'Tis then our swift craft glides along The silvery water's placid breast, With every stich of canvas taut As by the perfum'd night-winds caught ; She d:inces lightly as the sp/ay In soft, soft tears falls on her deck, And rolls in'rippling streams away. Anon, she floats by batter'd wreck Where in a squall a gallant bark, Toss'd by the tempest, struck a rock, And almost ere she felt the shock. Went down, whilst all was dim and dark. E'en now from off the tott'ring mast Gray-plumag'd birds, with stifled cries Fly from their nests as-she sails past. And in the clear air swiftly rise, And screech and soar in circ...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888

CRICKET. The opening match arranged to take place between the married and single members of the J Windsor Albion C.C. on Wednesday lapsed, owing to the smallness of the attendance. Considering that the whole of those who were present were Benedicts, it is surmised that the Bachelors did not roll up because they feared a drubbing. A practice was indulged in, and Mr. W. Dean pre sented the club with a bat. A match was played at Pitt Town on Saturday, the 8th instant, between the High School, Wind sor, and the Public School, Pitt Town, which re sulted in a victory for the latter by 18 runs.

FARMING AND HIGH-PRICED LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888

FARMING AND HIGH-PRICED LAND. In view of the so-called high prices now being paid for agricultural and graz ing land near town it is apparent that a diiferent system of farming from that which has hitherto prevailed will have to be introduced if the land is to be made pay. Those who have been connected with the soil all along, shake their heads and predict failure, because they cannot sec their way to profit at present values. But this pessi mistic view is a mistake. Systematic farm ing is yet almost unknown in this col ony-indeed the general mode of proced ure " is not farming at all." It is known and admitted that one acre of land properly utilised can be made to produce as much as ten acres treated according to the slovenly and exhaustive system which has been generally applied to the cheap lands of the colony. The very fact of a high price being paid for land will necessitate the introduction of a better system of farming and grazing. People hitherto have held too much land, con...

CORRESPONDENCE. "A HOLE AND CORNER MEETING." (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 September 1888

CORRESPONDENCE. [WE do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.] " A HOLE AND CORNER MEET ING." (TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-I am in sympathy with E. Board and Co., and I have no doubt there are many others who are with us. Of course five or six persons have a perfect right to meet in a public house parlor and discuss the advisability of forming a company for any purpose ; but when the object is of such importance as diverting the river traffic from Sydney to Windsor, then I contend it should be made a public matter, and be discussed in public meet ing assembled. No one can deny the importance of the subject, and but few will say that the formation of a company would not be a good thing ; but the question is: Was it the right way to go about it, or is the formation of a company the first thing to be considered ? I say NO ; certainly no ! The first thing to do is to get the river cleared-and this must be done by united action on the part of both river settlers and tow...

FIRST DAY-THURSDAY. THE first day of the Hawkesbury Spring meeting is over, and whilst some bewail their losses and can show nothing but empty pockets, others again have added to their wealth considerably. "Twas ever thus-some must lose, so that others may win and so the world wags. The attendance was good, and the road to the course was distinguished from town by a cloud of dust which was wafted far up into the heavenly blue. Along this road, all sorts and conditions of men and women wandered . dusty pedestrians, with beads of perspirtion stand ing upon their discoloured countenances, plodded jauntily along, now upon the sideway, now upon the centre of the thoroughfare, now dodging in and out between vehicles and horsemen, in their ex cessive eagerness to reach the scene of excitement There was a crush of conveyances of all kinds. All sorts of vehicles and vans 15ad, middling and smart ; Here rolled along a gay barouche, And there a baker's cart. And, lo, a trap that held a squad O...
