. Correspondence. ^ , :(To the Editor.) ?£ 1 ' Parliament House, Sydney. ^ Sir, — I have been shown, in your issue j f'jof- Thursday, a letter signed by a Mr. Jas. SL Chisholm, wherein the writer states that w During Mr. Kidd's lengthened parlia s'nfi'i' ^mentary career he has accorded him a loyal consistent support with one exception, n; 'when he very reluctantly voted against and that ' he sincerely regrets his exclusion from the Legislature at one of the most . critical periods in the history of our . colony.' Some few years ago, (during the period of Mr. Kidd's parliamentary career) I saw among a photographic group of the members of a Free trade , conference in Sydney, one purporting to represent Mr. J. K. Chisholm, a Camden delegate, and I am interested to know if there are two gentle men with one name, or one gentleman in ' two characters. If there be but the one Mr. J. K. Chisholm, surely he cannot be serious in applying to himself the epithets, u loyal and consistent,' as fo...

Rev. W. H. Murray. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 29 August 1895

t Rev. W. H- Murray. The following is an extract from a letter recently received from the Rev. W, H. Murray, it is dated July 25th : — ' On May 29th, my first attack of fever came on, followed about ten days afterwards by a second one. After that I got a cold and then another which, owing- to the weak ness from fever has not left me yet. I have even to-day had a severe pain in my left lung, but hope presently to shake it off. I think I have broken the back bone of the fever now, and hope to be acclimatized. On Monday, 1st July, Mr, Iiing sent fne away for a trip on the schooner to see if I could regain my strength. We went first to Awaiama and then to Dobu, the Head Wesleyan Mission Station, where we spent a few days including a Sunday, The trip lasted ten days, and though at times pretty rough, yet did me a great deal of good. My sister is still well and shows no sign yet of getting the fever. . . , . .Please remember us | to all our friends in Oamden.' \

The Speed of Birds. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 29 August 1895

The Speed of Birds. j Express trains with their greatest achievements are easily eclipsed by the amaz ing velocity attained by birds on their migra tion flight. The record is held by an Ameri can bird, the American -plover, which has 'r* been known td fly a distance of 3,200 miles, without land intervening at the rate of 212 - 'inile3 an hour. The little blue-throat, fly at tne rate or i»U miles per Hour, ana, maintain this speed for nine hours. The hooded crow, — a sluggish bird, — flies at the „ .rate of 108 miles an hour. No less wonder ful are the facts relating to. the height at which birds fly on these occasions. Condors, are in the habit of flying at a height of 40,000 ? feet above sea level, at heights, that is, at which men could scarcely breathe. The best explanation of these high flights is no doubt that of Herr Gatke — rthat. it is in order to get above those meteorological influences that would other wise retard progress.
