An Interesting Event. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

An Interesting Event. AN interesting event is expected to take place at Government House next September. Tour lady readers will have no difficulty in comprehending what is the nature of the event to which I allude. The three children of LORD and LADY CARRINGTON are all girls, and if the fourth should be a boy there is certain to be special rejoicing in the household. And what a fuss will be made by the toadies of all kinds who boast that they have the privilege of visiting Government House I

The Reservation of Land for Railways. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Reservation oí Land for Railways THE important question of the reserving of lands by the State along the routes of the railways proposed to be constructed is to receive the immediate attention of the Government. The Minister of "Works and the Minister of Lands have arranged to hold a conference, with a view of determining what system shallbe adopted, and generally how to proceed in the matter. During the debates in the ' Legislative Assembly on the railway proposals, the attention of Mr. Bruce Smith was called to the American system of reserving alternate sections, and also to the proposal that a strip of land two milesin width should be reserved along the entire length of each route. The two Ministers will go thoroughly into the whole question, and will pay due regard to the objections which have been made by some members of the Assembly to the practice of reserving land along the routes in such large areas as to interfere with settlement. The scheme adopted at the Con- ference...

Another Journalist. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Another Journalist. BUT if fortune has beeu kind to Mr. Gullet, bad luck has befallen Mr. BLACKWELL, another member of the literary staff of the Telegraph. Kecently the Government appointed this gentleman secre- tary of the Civil Service Commission, and he was duly gazetted to the office. But at the first meet- ing of the Commission the Commissioners repudi- ated the action of the Government, and appointed as secretary a man of their own choice. Mean- while Mr. Blackwell had resigned his position on the Telegraph, and another gentleman was engaged to succeed him. The secretaryship which Mr. Blackwell has thus been done out of is worth £400 a year ; at any rate, that is the sum which the Government agreed to pay him. Probably he will make a claim against the Government for compen- sation, but even if he gets a sum equal to three months' salary, I do not know that that will suffi- ciently compensate him for his losses and disap- pointment. It may be, however, that Sir HENEY PARKES wil...

The Uralla Gold Rush. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Uralla Gold Rush. DUBTÎTG the past week (says the Uralla and Walcha Times) the excitement in connection with the recent discovery of gold-bearing reefs at the Enmore Palls has kept Uralla on the tiptoe of expectation, and the find has been the principal topic of conversation among all classes. Many experienced gold- mines have visited Postman's Point, where the prospectors (George M'Crossinand party) have pegged out a block on what experts say will develop into a rich gold-bearing reef ; and though the opinion is not unanimous that the stone is highly auriferous, it is still thought by a considerable number of visitors that the discoverers have a block that is likely to turn out well. Their lease is con- sidered so valuable that already (so a reliable authority states) a mining speculator has offered £3000 cash, £7000 as soon as the first crushing takes place, and 40,000 paid up shares for the property. Whether this report is an exaggeration or otherwise, it shows that the disco...

"A Windfall" to a Journalist. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

<:A Windfall" to a Journalist. I I HEARD to-day that Mr. HENBY.,GULLETT, the] associate editor of the Baily Telegraph, has been I left a legacy equal to £400 a year, and that in con-1 sequence he and his family are going to leave the country to take up their residence in England. I congratulate Mr. Gullett on his lack. It is not often that a windfall of that kind comes to a journalist, and whenever any of the brotherhood obtains such an expression of providential kindness, I throw up my hat and utter a loud hurrah. Of course Mr. G-will not have to depend solely on the £400 to keep his family in England. He is a pretty large shareholder in the Daily Telegraph Newspaper Company, and as that paper is now paying 10 per cent, per annum, and may in a year or two pay more, he will have enough to maintain him and his in Gomfort The Telegraph will have to fill his place on the editorial staff, but that will not be very easy, for really good leader writers are not plentiful in Sydn...

Bonuses to Farmers. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Bonuses to Farmers. TnEMelbourne2Ts%raj?7i recently observed : -"There are signs of a big struggle in connection with the proposals to offer bonuses to farmers, and, from present appearances, the Government will have bard work to carry them. The country party, which number some 38 members, are almost unanimous in saying that the bonuses will be of no service to the people for whom they are intended. ' How can a man,' they ask, who lives on 320 acres, and is dependent entirely on the climate, think of growing olives or almonds or guavas ? There are men-numerous, too-who live in wheat-growing countries where irrigation is impossible. If, on the other hand, the Government had devoted the money to a reduction of railway rates they would have secured the whole of the farming interest.' Mr. M'Lean, Mr. Taverner, and others say that they have not met one farmer favorable to the bonuses, which they hold can only be won by a handful of men who in reality are not farmers at all. When the esti...

Our Military Officials. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Our Military Officials. Is my judgment the Government should moke a clean sweep of our military officials, and get new men in their places. They are constantly wrang- ling amongst themselves, and our defence arrange- ments suffer in consequence. There is more jeal- ousy among them than has ever existed among women, and if duelling were allowed in this country, you would hear of pistol or sword en- counters amongst them, that is if they had suffi- cient courage to tackle each other in that way. The country pay its.military officers handsomely and it Ehould get better work fer its money.

The Steel Point Battery. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Steel Point Battery. DUBING the past few weeks there has been a great deal of discussion, both in the Press and Parlia- ment, concerning the state of the guns in oar bat* teñes. It was proved that all the cannons at the Steel Point battery, situated near Watson's Bay, were quite useless, being choked with rust. This week we bad a practical illustration of the fact that some of the guns in other places were in a similar condition. Accompanied by GENERAL RICHARDSON and COLONEL ROBERTS, GENERAL EDWARDS (a distinguished military visitor) went to a battery on which several 25-ton guns were mounted, for the purpose of witnessing an exhibi- tion of firing from those tremendous engines. It was found that all were useless with the exception of one. That gun was pointed out by General Richardson to be also unfit for work, but the other local military authority declared that it could be discharged with safety. Accordingly it was loaded and discharged. The result was that the frame- work of...

LISTEN TO THIS AND DON'T FORGET IT, viz., ? That if you are fond of a pleasant beverage, . Wolfe's Schnapps will afford you that gratification 1 and at the same time invigorate your system and cheer your mind. In the entire list of medicated cordials there is nothing so salutary and agreeable. If you prefer you can mix it with lemon juice and soda. It is very nice that way.-ADV. "Manners," says the Journal tVIlyglcne, "are the foundation of hygiene." The first step in sanitation is personal cleanliness, and that is purely a matter of custom. The daily ablutions of a Spaniard would hardly satisfy an Englishman, and there are still boarding schools in France where, if a pupil asked for a bath, the teacher would exclaim " A bath I Are you ill ?" Till the sixteenth century alcohol was used only aa a medicine. It as a drug and not as a beverage that became known as arpia vitre-the water of life, from its great restorative powers. In ISSI it was first introduced as part of the food allowa...

The Railway Proposals. Glen Innes Line Referred to. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Railway Proposals. Glen Innes Line Referred to. Is the Assembly last week, Mr. BEUCE SMITH moved-"That the Committee on Public Works consider and report on the expediency of constructing a line of railway from Marrickville to the Burwood-road, a distance of four miles 40 chains, as explained . by the mover." The exact distance of the line was four miles CO chains, and the . estimated cost was £90,250, exclusive of land and compensation. Mr. SEE: What will the resumption of the land cost ? Mr. BRUCE SMITH could not say at the present time. Mr. DIBBS : There is a land job underlying this. Mr. BRUCE SMITH : The hot. member can have his own opinion, but I am satisfied that I am justified in recommending this line. Mr. SEE hoped the House would not go to a division on the motion, but would allow the line to go to the "Works Committee, to be dealt with by that body. As long as they had that machinery they should respect it. The Minister said the Government had adopted the proposals of...

Casino Council. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Casino Council. THE Casino Municipal Council has a. griev- ance. The Kiama Council .has received a grant of £500 for the repair of the road from Gerringong to Kiama, and hitherto Casino has been left out in the cold I The Mayor Baid it appeared to him to be a ques- tion as to the amount of influence which could be brought to bear upon the Minister. Just so! Kissing goes by favour. The aldermen, however, determined to give " the Minister " a chance to make atonement for previous neglect ; for a motion to ask the Secretary for Public Works for a special grant of £1000 to repair main roads damaged by floods in the municipality was agreed to unanimously.

The Municipality of Maclean, Clarence River. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Municipality of Maclean, Clarence River. THE following appeared as a letter in the Echo, signed " Resident." The township of Maclean, Clarence Eiver, was incorporated some two years ago, osten- sibly for the purpose of draining, which was thought by the residents to be a proper course to pursue in the interests of health and comfort. For this end the services of a practical surveyor were engaged, and the sum of £30 was paid him for taking levels and preparing plans in accordance with the desired end of formulating a scheme that would be practicable. These plans, &c, ?were of a unique and exhaustive character, and did the author credit as a member of that profession. The council of that time unanimously adopted the ideas submitted in meeting assembled, and agreed to execute them in their entirity ; it was also agreed to call for tenders for the construction of the work at once. This was some time during last September. Nothing further, however, was done in the matter unti...

lOVBTH DAï-FBIDAY. Yesterday morning, decisions were given in the following cases Powell and Johnson v. Firth, verdict for plain tiffs £33 Ss, and expenses of three witnesses. Counsel's fee increased to £7 7s. Cranston v. Champain : his Honor fonnd that plaintiff was still entitled to a verdict, bnt not to the amount given at the former trial (£9 8s 6d). Verdict £2 15s, and as there was so great an altera- tion from the former verdict, and on some of the issues equivalent to a verdict for defendant, he would order that each party pay his own expenses of all proceedings subsequent to the former hearing.

The Railway Proposals. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Railway Proposals. THE Ballway proposals of the Government are being approved of by the Honse, but whether they will pass the ordeal of the Public Works Committee is quite another matter. To some of them no rational objection can be taken, but others deserve vigorous criticism. Amongst the list is a proposal to construct a portion of the Coast line running northward from the Clarence River. That one should, I apprehend, meet with general approval, for the country through which it Í3 intended the railway shall pass is exceedingly rich, and capable of sustaining a large population. But the proposal to build a railway from Marrickville to Burwood should not be entertained. The district through which that line would pas3 forms part of the Canterbury electorate. It is in the hands of a number of land speculators, and a number of these people log-rolled the railway for the purpose of making large profits ont of their purchases. Undoubtedly it was through the influence of Mr. CARRUTHER...

Mr. Trickett very Angry. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Mr. Trickett very Angry. MB. TRICKETT -was at the canons meeting, and he ia very angry at the report which appeared in the Herald, and which was furnished by a gentleman well known in the community. As a matter of privilege, Mr. Trickett referred to the subject in the Council on Thursday evening. He complained that the report, in declaring that all the members present at the meeting had decided to take a certain course with regard to the Bill, had mis- represented him, and he uttered a protest against what had been published. That was rough on the inspirer of the report, who heard what the complainant , said. I have reason to believe that Mr. Trickett's principal reason. for expressing himself in the manner he did, was to have a dig at an officious member of the Council, who, by his assumption of superiority over his fellow-members, is making himself odious in their sight. Because of the change of front on the part of the Council, as indicated in the caucus meeting, it may be assume...
