Ulmarra. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Ulmarra. FBIDAÏ. Weather.-Fanning operations will ne delayed on all the low country for a very long time, and the early crop must thereby be affected. It would seem too. as if we were not out of the trouble even yet, for to-day again the weather appears very threatening, and the sky mnch overcast ; whilst prophecies of more rain and floods are related to us '' Butter Factory.-A meeting was held cn' Wednesday to consider the offer from Mr. Taylor of a site, and deputies were appointed to see what arrangements could be come to. The Committee are about to lose one of their Secretaries (Mr. Colley) whose energetic efforts in connection with, that movement, and also as Secretary of the School of Arts Committee, will be much missed.

Lawrence. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Lawrence THURSDAY. Balancing of Probabilities.-No sooner have we succeeded in recovering from an un- welcome visitation of flood, tban we are subjected to another scare. Though the river did not rise more than within three feet of last flood, greater loss and uneasiness was caused. We have no means of knowing here (at present) the exact quantity of rain that fell, but feel conscious that the number of inches were many. It is extremely unfortunate that we should, at such a critical time, be cut off from regular and frequent inter- course with Tabulam, and, strange to say, our Copmanhurst information on Tuesday might easily have been less conflicting, and this fact alone tended to cause much of the uneasiness felt by the residents of the town and district. All the wharves at Lawrence were jost covered, bnt the damp and losses referred to were not done there. The Law- rence s.s. on Monday morning cleared the publio wharf of some 80 bags maize, and the Electra ^. cleared the public whar...

Tyndale. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Tyndale. THURSDAY. WITHIN tue snort space of three weeks we have ! had two heavy downpours of rain. The hood of | three weeks ago was not attended with any loss, excepting of oomrse covering the grass in low landa. Bat the last flood, coming at the beginning of the season, has canoed farm work to be suspended. The C.S.B.

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] The Upper House "Back Down." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Political and Social Letter. LFrora oar Special Correspondent, j The Upper House "Back Down." WITH regard to the Payment of Members Bill, the Legislative Council intends to " back down." That at least is the conclusion one is compelled to draw from the report of the caucus meeting of 35 membere of the Council, which was published in the Herald two or three days ago. The meeting agreed that the subject was not of sufficient importance to warrant the Upper House in making it a bone of contention between that body and the Legislative Assembly, and that all that the former need do when the Bill comes up for discussion again was to assert the right of the Council to make amendments in such, measures. In view of the elaborate speeches made by. some of the gentlemen when the former Bill was under their consideration in the Upper Honse, this is really a remarkable change of front. Then payment of members was described as being a principle of very great importance, and the speakers showed th...

A Strange Story of "Faith Healing." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

A Strange Story of "Faith Healing." THE Hast Sussex Netos states that a sudden recovery from a serious illness has created much amazement in Lewes. A little more than seven months ago Mr. E. Summery, of that town, was taken ill with chronic rheu- matism and hysteria, which seemed to affect every nerve. Prior to his illness his sight had been bad, and now he became totally blind in one eye, and gradually began to lose the power of vision in the other. He was brought back from Bath a helpless invalid. One day there came from London a minister who sometimes preaches in the chapel which the sick man was in the habit of attending. He had known the patient for some years, and was well acquainted with all the circum- stances of his illness. He had had it sug- gested to offer special prayer, asking God to restore the sick man to health. Upon his arrival at Lewes a small party assembled in the chapel, and there prayed that the Giver of Life would restore their brother to health once more. Th...

Presbyterianism in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Presbyterianism in Victoria. YiCTOEii. owes a good deal to Scotchmen and Presbyterianism both in moral and material matters, and the jubilee celebrations of the Presbyterian Church of Yictoria, commen- ced on Tuesday last, cannot fail to draw general attention to this fact, and to the immense progress which Presbyterianism has made during its fifty and odd years of exis- tence in this colony. In 1837, the first Presbyterian divine, the Rev. James Clow, a chaplain who had retired from the East India Company's service on a pension, settled in "Port Phillip," and conducted services in the infant settlement now known the world over as " Marvellous Melbourne." A year later the Rev. James Porbes was formally appointed by the New South Wales Presbytery to the charge of the Port Phillip district, and soon was in a position to claim from the Government the maximum amount of yearly subsidy, £200, which was contingent on a congregation numbering 500. In 184:0 a church was established at Geelon...

Mr. Gladstone Playing at Marbles [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Mr. Gladstone Playing at Marbles "G.L." writes to the 'British Weekly': 'The day oa which Mr. Gladstone arrived here to attend the funeral of his brother at Fasque, I had three old men dressing my garden. I happened to name to them my intention of proceeding to the station to witness Mr. Gladstone's arrival, and, having gone inside for a moment, and returning through the garden I found three spades stuck in the ground, my three ' merri men ' being amissing. I found the trio amongst the hundreds who were gathered to await the arrival of the London train. On returning home I was pleased to find my men had not 'struck work.' One of them (M'Gregor) said : ' We could not resist the temptation to see Mr. Gladstone, who I have not seen since he was a boy.' ' Ob, and did you know him when he was a boy V ' Ah, I was then a youth at Fettercairn Parish School. A few other and I were wont, on our homeward tramp, to have a game at bools (marbles) at a convenient spot near Mains of Fasque, Sir Jo...

Capital and Labour. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Capital and Labour. THE "Echo says-It is satisfactory to learn that the conference between the representa- tives of the employers and the employed on Friday was a friendly and unpredjudiced one. The conference is adjourned pending further information being obtained upon the construction of mixed courts of conciliation. Mr. James Fletcher worried out a Scot's proverb at Cootamundra, to the effect that idle dogs worry sheep. Here is another counsel: "Let sleeping dogs lie." No doubt by the time Mr. Frederick Pinkstone was through with the Newcastle man's speech Mr. Fletcher was sorry he spoke. The sting of the proverb was that Australian lads are idle dogs. To this Mr. Pinkstone rejoins that he came forward as an Australian to hurl back in the teeth of Mr. Fletcher the slander upon the character of young Aus- tralians and his comparison of them to " idle dogs." Mr. Fletcher repudiated this, and an uproar was occasioned. Mr. Pinkstone claimed that Australian boys were self reliant, and...

W BÖSES J» AX'» SIXXIWGS. IN the Council the whole sitting- was devoted to the consideration of the Land Bill in Committee. Twelve clanses were passed with verbal amend- ments, and the Bill will be further considered on Tuesday next. In the Assembly, in answer to Mr. Crick, who called attention to the filthy illustrated paper called the Dead Bird, Mr. GOULD said the Inspector General of Police would take whatever action that was considered necessary. Mr. M'FARLANE moved the adjournment of the House, to complain of discourtesy from Mr O'Connor, and neglect in matters connected with po3t and telegraph offices in the country, referring specially to the refusal to provide telephone communica- tion for .Southgate and a money order office at Yamba. The debate extended over three hours, 21 members speaking. Mr. EWING and Mr. NICOLL complained of the want of more postal accommodation,on the Rich- mond. !

THURSDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

THUMS DAX'S SIMMÏTeS. IN the Council there was a long debate over appointing a Select Committee on defences. The motion was withdrawn. In the Assembly, Mr. BRUCE SMITH, in reply to Mr. M'Farlane, said no date had been fixed when the Public Works Committee would visit the Clarence in relation to the improvements at the Clarence entrance ; but probably when other dis- trict works referred to them were ready for inves- tigation they would go to the district. Mr. GOULD, in reply to Mr. Melville, said he would give an answer within a week with regard to releasing witnesses sent to Tamworth Gaol by Judge Windeyer for being drunk. When the military estimates is submitted, Sir Henry Parkes has promised a lengthy statement. After a long discussion, leave was given to bring in a Bill for the better regulation of coal mines, over which a " brush " occnrred between Abigail and Melville. It was urged that a Bill Bhould be introduced owing to the recent panic, and others pointed ¡out that less ac...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MORNING, 10TH AUGUST, 1889. About Time the People of these Districts Woke up. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. I ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATU RDAY MORNING, 10TH AUGUST, 1839. About Time the People of these Districts Woke up. IT is about time that the people of these districts woke up to a full sense of the injustice they are subjected to, and the gross neglect of their interests, exhibited both by Ministers and Parliament. That injustice and neglect present themselves in many forms ; but especially so in relation to public works. Take for instance at the present time, The State of Our Roads. Erom one end of the district to another comes the uniform complaint of impassable roads. So bad are they that mail and pas- senger, as well as ordinary merchandise and produce traffic, are in many cases absolutely suspended. This state of things is not entirely owing to the bad weather, for even in ordinary seasons the want of passable roads and other facilities of communication have caused people to Abandon Their Selections, after having been all but Btarved out. Indeed, i...
