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

The Rainfall. THE rainfall referred to in our last issue proved to be a heavy one, the weather continuing unpropit- ious up to Thursday, when it cleared. The total fall at Grafton since Friday evening was 715 points, but on the Lower Clarence the fall was much heavier, and at Yamba the record for the 24 hours previous to 9 a.m. on Tuesday was O'lO points. It is provident:al this extraordinary rainfall did not occur at the head of the river, or there must have been a heavy flood. At Grafton the rise in the river did not exceed ll feet, atTabnlam it was but 16 feet, while at Copmanhurst it was about 27 feet. The weight of the rain Ml coastwise, and the Orara rose high. The ? ground is thoroughly soaked, and agricultural operations are entirely suspended, but there has not been much damage done beyond the injury tóthe potato crop that wal*io wn. The roads of the district are in a terrible condition and in many places impassable. The streets also were worse on this occasion than for'a l...

MOKE NEW STOCK.-H. HARDING has just opened a new assortment of new designs in Jewel- lery, including some very choice gold and silver brooches, lace pins, engagement rings, and a fine stock of American clocks. These latter are all well regulated and guaranteed, and like his watches, may be had on trial for a year.-ADV. Last year, when the price of potatoes was very low, a Dundee farmer put a lot of them among chaff at the bottom of a silo. When it was opened the other day they were as fresh as when they were dug.

Glen Innes. WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Glen Innes. WEDNESDAY. MANN RIVER REEFS.-I am satisfied that there is a field here in thia neighbourhood for the employ- ment of a number of reef miners. A correspondent writing to the Examiner, Bays he visited the reefs on Reedy Creek, at Cunglebung, about 16 miles south-east from the Manu. These reefs were worked some 18 years ago, when a quantity of gold-bearing stone, more or less rich, was taken from them. I like well the look of the country hereabout, and during my stay found several reefs that had not been broken into. This place ia decidedly worthy of a trial, and opens out a good field for prospecting. The old reef referred to was abandoned some years ago, but it was never properly tested ; consequently it is presumed riches have not been disclosed. On the Dinner Creek side there are also several gold-bearing reefs, and according to the opinion of experts, they will prove rich. The nature of the country is favorable to permanent reefing. OTHER MINES.-From the same source I ...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

' Letters to the Editor. THE Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions) «xpressed by correspondents. SIB.-Your correspondent "North Coast," in Tuesday's issue, seems. to take a very desponding view of our chance for railway construction at an early date. Now, in the present order of things, he can hardly expect, as a reasonable man, that there will be any definite settlement of the question for a year or two yet. He should know that all these Railway proposals are yet to be submitted to Parliament by the Minister for Works, by resolu- tion affirming that the proposals should be sent on to the Parliamentary Committee of Public Works. Notice of this resolution has not yet been given, so that we may expect that it will be a few weeks yet before it is debated in the House, and possibly it will not come on this Session at all, but will have to wait until the next batch of railways next Session. Then, after this resolution is carried, and supposing it is not defeated in the Ho...

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

Aquatics. The San Francisco Neivs Latter thinks O'Connor's chances of defeating Searle are very poor if Han Ian properly estimates the power of the Australian. It is rumoured that Stansbury hue improved, and is now able to pull faster than when he rowed Searle such a terrible race. If this is the case, his chances of ultimately becoming the champion sculler of the world are very rosy. Mr. Merriman, ex-captain of the Mercantile Rowing Club, who ha3 jost returned from a trip to England, is of opinion that the American amateur champion, Psotta, whom he saw on the Thames, ia not good enough for one or two of our senior scullers. He also thinks that a fairly good Aus- tralian crew would stand a rattling good show against the crews in the old country, and defeat anything that could be brought against them on the Continent. Searle was interviewed by a reporter. Referring to the then coming match between, M'Lean and Neilson, Searle said he thought Neilson would lead. Neilsen is as good a li...

Sm.-What oro the membors for Grafton, Tho Clarence, Glen Innes and Inverell doing that they do not make an effort to have tho plans for tho authorised lines of railway from Grafton to Glen Inne3 and Glen Innes to Inverell submitted to tho Public Works Committee, together with the other public works in these Northern districts. I notice Mr. C. A. Lee, the member for Tenterfield, ia a member of that Committee, and as ono who holds a brief to oppose these lines, it does seem rather inconsistent that he should occupy such a position. In fact it seems almos 11incongruous as the Com mittee itself. I am at a lose to understand why the representatives of the people should delegate their powers in such important publio matters, and that Government, who should be ever ready to btand by and support any so important publio work, lay themselves open to censure in the event of the Com- mi...

"Wooed, an' Married an' a'." By one who has Gone Through the Ordeal. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

" Wooed, an'Married an'a'." By one who has Gone Through the Ordeal. IT depends altogether upon the two indivi- duals making and maintaining the marriage whether it is a thing of blessing or of bann- ing. Two people who are each naturally unselfish, or who love each other sufficiently to cultivate unselfishness, or who are unsel- fish from principle, may make marriage a state of beatitude ; and two people who think each of his or her own special comfort can make it worse than a purgatorial condition. And that would hold true not only of mar- riage, but of any other association, bond, or partnership. Where husband and wife have learned to forbear ever so little, to strive for each other's joys rather than for their own rights, to respect each other's personality, then their unity, is a bliss of which the unmarried mind can form no idea ; they grow to have one wish, almost to knoweach other's thought before speaking, while each can maintain sufficient of that individuality which preven...

How the Knowledge of History bears on Legislation. Lecture by Canon Kingsmill. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

How the Knowledge of History hears on Legislation. I . . Lecture by Canon .Kingsmill. AT the ordinary weekly meeting of the Pheonix Debating Society, a most interest- ing and instructive lecture was delivered by the Rev. Canon Kingsmill, the subject chosen; being "How the knowledge of history bears on legislation." The rev. lecturer, rwho was received with applause, said that historical studies should_be held to occupy the chief place in the estimation of those who hold responsible positions in our legislatures. There are numbers who think that historical study is quite unnecessary, and if any question should be asked relative to ancient history, the questioner would be forcibly fold to go to Hong Kong. All civilised states are more or less the outcome of revolutions and 1 experimental legislation. Anyone who has carefully followed the history o£ the past will be able to judge of the present^ and to a great extent forecast the future. If-an old Roman were trans- planted to the prese...

The Colliery Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Colliery Disaster. YOUNG BAJSTIEL», whose body was recovered on Wednesday in the Griebe mine, was IS years of age, and was born at Maitland; his father, who was a miner, having died many years ago. The hat he wore on the morning of the catastrophe was identified by his mother. The body was in a sitting position facing the workmen with the hands clasped over his head, as though the poor fellow had endeavoured to keep the lumps of coal from I falling on him. The body of young Peate was also recovered. The features could not be recognised, and the smell was something terrible. It is evident that young Peate must have died a lingering death, for when Edward Sullivan, one of the rescued men, left him he was buried up, and he was ask- ing for help. Sullivan promised to return to him with assistance, but owing to the quantity of coal and stone falling he could not do so, and poor Peate was left to die with the mass of coal slowly but surely crushing the life out of his body. -Siai'.

PARLIAMENT. By Telegram. TUESDAY'S SITTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

PARLIAMENT. By Telegram. xiiEsi»A r's sixuiro. In the Assembly, the proposed breakwater at Byron Bay occupied the attention of the Assembly for some hours. The MINISTER FOR WORKS asked the House to submit to the Parliamentary Committee a scheme for creating by means of a breakwater thrown across the mouth of Byron Bay a Eafe harbour of refuge for shipping in rough weather. Practically the scheme involves the construction of two breakwaters, the outer one 1016yds. m length and the inner one 534yds. long with a temporary connecting bridge of 330yds. The estimated cost of the entire work is £162,000. When completed the harbour thus made will contain an enclosure of 108a. of water with a depth of 18ft., 100a. with a depth varying from 18ft. to 12ft, and 82a. under 12ft. in depth. The widest possible diversity of opinion was expressed respecting the utility of the proposal. Mr. DIBBS thought that it would be very much better to spend the money on improvements at the entrances of the Clar...

Christianity versus Socialism. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Christianity versus Socialism. "WE bear a great deal about tbe society of the future, as to whether it will be Christian or Socialistic-just as the speaker would like it to be. "Whatever may be said to the con . trary, Christianity and Socialism are anta- gonistic; they are both striving for the mastery. It may be pointed out that there are Christian Socialists, but even they cannot make the two theories agree, so I let them alone. Socialism may conquer Capital, but will it supplant Christianity ? Prom an out- sider's point of view, let us see. Christianity says that man's wickedness is the cause of his surroundings ; while Social- ism has it that man's wickedness is the result of his surroundings. Present society is commercially bad because man is morally bad ; change his morals and you change his trade, says Christianity. Change his system of trade and you change his morals, says Socialism, for the present system but en- riches the few and impoverishes the many. Let us grant that ...
