?i)t Australian. SATURDAY, MARCH 7th. 1874. WE do not as a rule like to obtrude our grievances upon the public ; but iu the pre- sent instance we consider that we would be to blame, unless we did something to expose the decided partiality of him who was held up to be a model Mayor. A rag published in Windsor (which we are compelled to dub as onr contemporary), stated a few weeks ago that now Mn. HOLBOROW was elected Mayor the little town of Richmond must pro- gress ; adding thereto 6ome other fulsome adulations of this same " Halifax Captain." We were at the time at a loss to understand how it was that MR. HOLBOROW, Captain of the Standbacks, &c &c, should all at once have risen in the estimation of the " Fiddle." But lo ! the brazen clarion sounds and from its notes we learn the reason-hush-pause traveller and hear-so that ye may be wise in your generation. " The cat has been let out of the bag." The Captain bold who dwells in country quarters, has not only promised...

CONFESSION IN THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. [Morning Post, December 9th] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1874

CONFESSION IN THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. [Morning Post, December 9th] The inexpediency of unofficial declarations when important questions of theology are un- der discussion, has beenoftcu felt and deplored Tile mischief they contribute towards the final solution of a question, and in thc meantime they create more perplexity, than they receive. Either they become new tests, or they assume a right of interpretation, for neither of which j have they the slightest authority, As a rule j they do not. contain the whole truth, i e., are ¡ not exhaustive of their subject, and therefore j are not. trustworthy guides to.opinion.

DISCOVERY IN THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1874

DISCOVERY IN THE PACIFIC. THE cruiser engaged in watching the expor- tation of labourers" from, islands of the South Pacific Ocean, fall in with strange places and strange people. At New Hanover, Captain Simpson, of her Majesty's ship Blanche, found men and women very much in a state of nature, he thinks thoy had never before been visited by white men. They were ignor- ant of the use of tobacco, and any old pieces of paper were taken by them in preference to the usual trade articles. Both men and women came alongside in great numbers, and ' showed no fear. They had little or nothing for barter except spears. They appeared good humoured, but are arrant thieves. A party of officers lan led, and except that their pock- ets were picked were in no way molested. Captain Simpson when off the coast of New Britian, took au opportunity of perpetuating his name and that of his ship. He found two spacious bays or harbours, with good anchor- age, land-locked, and sheltered from all winds. One, w...

CHAPTER XLVIII. IN THE ORANGERY IN THE TWILIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1874

CHAPTER XLVIII. IN THE ORANGERY IN THE TWILIGHT. IT was well for this Blanche Devereux that she was girt about with loving hearts aud willing hands, or this night might have been her last on earth. For the taint had touched Mrs. Benson's blood like some contagious disease, and she was as truly mad to-night as was Charles Devereux that Christmas Eve seven years ago, when this woman had been the harbinger of such fearful news. Through the corridors she wandered long after midnight, never noticed but by one who grinned maliciously as he followed her foot- steps with noiseless cunning. Meanwhile Blanche was sleeping with Miss Gerrish, who petted her to sleep, and held her in her loving- arms, and who wondered much at hearing her sob so piteously, even while gentle drowsy slumber had sealed her eyelids. It was a miracle that Blanche escaped to- night, for the raging blood of Mrs. Benson, clotting her brain, caused her to thiuk of firing the noble house, of seeing tho flames leaping up in...

HALF-FAINTINO, with stumbling footsteps and drooping head, Blanche totters forward at the mention of John Wrackall's dear name* He has the look of a messenger of great joy.

EASSAY ON MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1874

EASSAY ON MARRIAGE. MARRIED men are very common. They be found in great numbers in any large assembly and even in the public streets. They are known by having sad looks, bad clothes, and irritable tempers. I once knew one who had a good temper, but his wife was dead. Mar- ried men always know the prices of potatoes and coals. They arc generally red in the face and don't wear moustaches. They are fond of dining at their friends' hoas.es and and like mustard and onions They have wives who sometimes stamp the floor, and ! sometimes cry ; and elderly gentleman told mo this. Some married men have a lot of children. I know one who has thirteen. He never goes home until 10 o'clock at night. He kicks dogs when he meets them and reads descriptions of murders in the papers. He borrowed half-a-sovereigu from me and never paid it back. He has no watch carries a heavy stick, and pounds it on the pavement when he walks. I have heard him use bad language He laughed once when he saw a woman beating...

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1874

AGRICULTURAL. THE wheat harvest is now over, but the crop has not come up to the expectations that hàd been formed. The average yield will be in- ferior to that of last year ; the highest total average yield, 29 bushels per acre, being from the farm of Mr. W. M. Gatenby, pf Cressy. Exceptional instances of fair yields, however, are to be found along the coast districts, the crops between the Don and the Forth being exceedingly good. In the first-named district difficulty was experienced by the farmers in getting in the harvest, in consequence of the scarcity of men, large numbers having re- cently started for Mount Bischoff. The oat and potato crops are not nearly so promising as those of last vear. Bush fires have been very prevalent throughout the colony, and great damage has been done. On the Tor- quay side of the river Mersey several small farmers have been completely burned out at Northdown ; and on two consecutive nights the inhabitants of Torquay had to turn out en masse to s...

TITTLE TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 7 March 1874

TITTLE TATTLE. A CONTRIBUTOR to light (very light) litera- ture appears in the Hawkesbury Fiddle of Saturday last, headed ' Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth.' From the confused, involved, and stupid style of the article it is easy to discover the authorship. The Fiddler could never father such a composition. It must have been penned after the thorough dressing down which the buck, the fiddler, and the man of physic got at the Barraba Hotel on the previous Saturday by Jemmy of the Fitzroy. No one can mistake the pill-maker as the writer. Passing by the nonsensical allusion to the 19th and 16th centuries, for which we would refer the writer to the proceedings of Bismarck, the recent English Elections, the ap- pointment of Chief Justice in New South Wales, and the election of Mayor of the cities of Sydney, Newcastle, Armidale, and other places.

The author of which., who is evidently up in, the noble art of lying, says that I in company with my brother went to Windsor for thc purpose of hailing Mr. Webb out, but that we failed to do so. Our bail being rejected by the bench j of Magistrates there. Now Mr. Editor, this statement is as base as it is false, as neither myself nor my brother made any attempt whatever to get the bail before mentioned, had we done so, we would have had' no difficulty in the ma Uer.

RICHMOND AGRICULTURAL 8HÖW. {To the Editor of the Australian.) Sm,-I feel assured you will allow me. ! Space in your valuable aud widely circulated ¡ journal, to point out to that portion of the ! public who have the spirit and manliness to judge for themselves the action of a few so called influential residents of the district, in, relation to the forthcoming Exhibition to be held in RicHmoud. No one possessing the smallest amount of common sense, will deny, that the show if properly carried out, will materially add to the prosperity of the dis- trict by bringing it under the notice of the general public, and by showing what the dis- trict is capable of producing. Besides the benefit we would derive from the influx of strangers, who must necessarily spend at least a 6mall amount of money; everything would then be left in the district, instead of what has been the case heretofore going to Sydney, we deriving no benefit.

A MARE'S NEST. (2*0 the Editor of the Australian.) Sm,-I perceive by the report in your last issue of the late proceedings of our Munici- pal body, that our highly intelligent Mayor has been putting his foot into it again, and has been discovering a mare's nest. He quoted the Richmond accounts, to show that pound fees went into the funds of the Cor- poration. But any one with half a grain of I sense must have known that that was a mistentry. No fees go into the Corporation, and they make nothing by having charge of I the pound. Alderman Primrose correctly I stated the Corporation stands only in the place of the Bench of Magistrates. The fees entered at Richmond should have been charges for trespass. All fees go to the pound-keeper, and any unclaimed moneys must be paid to the Colonial Treasurer under the Impounding Act. As to the proposed removal of the pound that is evidently a piece of spite against Mr. Hull. As one of tho Aldermen sensibly re- marked it is at present central and ...
