UNSPORTSMANLIKE "SPORT." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 27 August 1881
UNSPORTSMANLIKE "SPORT." IT is imposible to denounce too strongly the increasing pugilistic tendencies of the larrikin element, as indicated by the numerous affrays reported during the last few days, in two in- stances with fatal results. Although in former times the English prize ring could boast a con - siderable share of aristocratic patronage, it was too large prevaded by this spirit of blackguard bruta ity, to possess achance of retaining the favour of the more respectable classes of the community, and although the combat between Tom Sayers and Heenan saved for a moment the fading glories of the pugilistic art, it could not stay their rapid decline. At the present moment the English prize ring, such as it is, is supported only by the lowest and most unruly classes of the community, the very dregs of the English people, and possesses not the slightest claim to public consideration, although a cer- tain class of so-called sporting papers,-jour- nals which seek to increase their p...
The Chinese Question. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 27 August 1881
The Chinese Question. As there are many of ovir readers who do no: see the daily papers, we re-publish the subjoined letter of our respected townsman, the Rev. H. Mack, from the S. M. Herald : T.i THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. Sir,-A more unjust andy in fact, suicidal piece of legislation has rarely been heard of than that now attempted by the present Goverumcnt in référence to Chinese immigra- tion. Nothing less than a degree of infatua- tion, peculiar, perhaps, to a Ministry fu ly conscious of its strength, could prevent it from seeing that such an attempt to appease the clamour of one class by cruelly imposing disa- bilities and penalties on another, wuuld be sure to induce reaction, if not retribution. To account lor the absurdity ol' this measure in any other way is difficult to conjecture. However, the illusion, if such it be, is soon likely to be dispelled. What by the powerful advocacy of the leading journr l, * and thc uiasieily and eloquent address of Mr. Dalley ii fore thc Le...

PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 27 August 1881
PINS. Cum grano salis. Mark Tw.iin, in one of Ins latest works, conies down heavy on the pat sous, thusly : " The clergyman even reads tin1 hymn Everybody h is a hymn book now, and so the j public reading is no longer necessary. It is ¡ not merely unnecessary, it is generally pain- ful ; for tae average clergyman could not lire into his congregation with a shot-gun and hit a worse reader than himself. . . . One would think he would at least learn how to read the Lord's Prayer, by-and-by, but it is not so." Now this is warm on the ministers ; j and I would like to suggest that the long winded extemporaneous, and dry-as-dust dis- courses, need the lash (rom tile same writer. Charles Dickens, some years before his death, went to a Sunday night service at the Brit- tannia Theatre, at Hoxton, and the following week there appeared in AU the Year Round some scathing remarks on this same long winded arrangement. The sermon might be very good, h. thought, but he failed to see that ail the wo...

THE j MinuIiTGlrnnj CJnnrirlf. \ AND FAR1IET18' ADVOCATE. HA TUli DA Y, AUGUST ¿7, 1881. CONSPICUOUS hy their alaine-at the public meeting held at the !>cn. .ol of Arts, in the Licensing Question the other night-were those persons who may be considered, by their social status and influence, the leading men of the town. As the meeting was, to all intents and purposes, a political one as well as moral, we think the presence of our rincipal laymen was naturally expected. The fact of several ministers of religion having been there, did not constitute a particularly religious gathering, these gentle- men were invited, aud the}r, to th ir honour, attended in the cause of huniauity ; a.id, it strikes us, that it would have been nothing discreditable in those we have alluded to had they taken part for the same reason. With regard to the amendments to the Licensing' Bill now before Parliament, as set forth in the petition read at the meeting, we may say with others, we have strong doubts ...

POLLED CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 3 September 1881
POLLED CATTLE. ACCORDING to fVrs'ern Farm and H&lt;>me, " tue popularity ot polled cattle is rapidly incn-asin r," and the e litor hopes to see this breed take the place of horne ! animals in all the choice her ls of K m sas and Nebraska; an example which would in course oí time cause the substitution of the gentle mul- ley " for the '* dangerous Texan " by the boders of the territories. The advantages of this change he sumí up as follows: " There seems to be no question that polled cattle cati be bred at lc;tst ten percent, cheaper than the horned. They are harmless as sheep anti exceeding!v tractable. They eai be transported to market at less cost and much more comfort to themselves than the h «med. When slaughtered their meat always brings the top price, anti their hides, being entirely exempt from holes and scars m ide by the horns of their associates, ta:so b mg more money. It would seem as though t!ie iniroriuction of such a breed wes a matter »t naii med ¡!:¡p irt'...

WOMEN SHOULD RAISE POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 3 September 1881
WOMEN SH'UM.D RAISE POULTRY. TUE r.MMMg of poultry may bj called a domestic art, pertaining immeoi.itelv to the occupation of a woman. A hen to a m,i;i is a fearfully fretfu! creature. SE ist metí can- not stand the noiV», and especially the un- ceasing motion and nervous restlessness of their own children, much less the perverse love of mischief in a cunning old hen. Smite one tells an amusing story of a man trying to drive a sitting lien bick to her nest. Alter two or three ineffectual attempts he makes up Iiis mind sue shall go in-anti what a time they have of it! Over the porch, under the house, and into the garden slie goes ; old shoes, bits ot wo vi, and tin cans follow her at every turn, while he yells and s .e cackles until he gives out exhausted, wipes his satu ! rated face, puts on his coat, and goes down town to his legitim ite business of quarrel ai rover "trades" and bossing the clerks. Now, see how easily his wife handles that he:;. She approaches the hen gently, calli...
