Mr. Charles Bull, Mayor of Campbelltown, presided. Mr. Garrett, after thanking the elecfors for the renewal of their confidence in liiiu nt the last general election, referred to the circumstances under which the late Govern ment loft office and the present Govern ment c.amo into power. He said there was one thing which the country had gained by the chango, and that wnn the introduction of now blood into the Government of the country. Most of the now men were men of considerable promise, and their intro duction into public lifo should be for the benefit of the colony; but in addition to that, tho present Government had rendered a servico by securing the return to public. life of Mr. Dalley—(cheers)—for whom he had not only great personal regard, but for whose abilities as a speaker and a politician ho had also...

The attendance at tlio beginning of tlio mooting was not large, but towards its conclusion there was ft very good muster. Mr. Georgo Nicol, sen., was voted to the chair, and introduced Mr. Garrott. Mr. Garrett, who was well received, said lie did not anticipate a large attendance, for he knew the difficulty business people people had to contend against. First, lie must thank, them for the support he had received at Appin last election. The elec tion had come on so suddenly that ho had not an opportunity of addressing them, but still the polling was satisfactory to him. No duty was more incumbent on a member of Parliament than to explain liis views to the electors, and he had now commenced a series of meetings—of which this was the first—to tell them how lie had voted in his place in Parliament ...

THE BO WEAL FREE PRESS, and lIlTTAaONG, BUMIAWANG, AND KaNQALOON ADVOCATE SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1883. It is a very wholesome custom for mem bers of Parliament to visit their constituen cies after each session, in order thnt they may know whether their parliamentary conduct has met with approval, or other wise ; to give a full account of their steward ship ; to give an explanation of any vote or other action that may not accord with the views entertained by some ; and to ascer tain the nature of any local grievance that may require hi3 mediation. So far, judg ing from the reception accorded Mr. Garrett at Appin, in Campbelltown.and Camden, the confidence of the electors in those parts of the Camden Electorate seems to be un shaken. Mr. Ghirrett, as will be seen by a report of his speech in another column, was very explicit and candid in his utterances, and was listened to with pleasure and approbation. Firstly, he thanked the electors for the honour they had conferred by electing h...

POEK AT THE SHORTEST NOTICE. " rim. Rotiinhon" lliufl humorously tolls how in C'hicngo ho saw a pig converted into pork in tliirfcy-fivo scconds. A lively piebald pig was olio of ft number grunting and quarrell ing in a pen, and I was asked to keep my eyo on him. What happened to that porker was this. IIo was suddenly seized by the hind leg and jerked up on to a small crane. This swung him swiftly to the fatal door through which no pig over returns. On the other side stood a man— That two banded-ongino at the door stands roady to smite, onoe and no more, and tho dead pig shot across a trough and through another doorway, and then thero waB a splash I Ho had fallen head first into a vat of boiling water.

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 22 September 1883

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Religion nowadays is largely administered on the European plan. You tako what you please and leave the rest. It is apt to be the ease, however, that what you take is very small in proportion to what you leave. Men are so unselfish. A .Soft Answek.—Fair Horsewoman (predisposed to lecture): " Betting, smoking, and billiards I What dreadful habits you men go in for 1" Cousin Jack : " Not so damaging as your babit, Lady Loo. It's perfectly killing." (Lecture adjourned.) It is reported that the Wednesday half-holiday business will fall through from this out. And so it should. It is very stupid to send buyers, on a market day, to other townships. Even now, it will take a long time to recover the trade we have lost. An old and respected resident, Mr. Alexander Smith, partner in the firm of Smith and Henderson, merchants and shipowners, of Newcastle, died on Sunday, from blood poisoning, resulting from a slight scratch on one of his hande.
