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

^ Echoes and Opinions. Mus. MONA CAIRD'S notion! upon the, marriage state, or something very much akin to them, most have prevailed in the feminine mind centuries ago, or a celebrated author of romance has, upon Mrs. Caird's idea, put words into the month of one of his characters which more fully conveys that lady's contention for laxity in the marriage bond. Mr. EIDER HAGGARD makes Cleopatra to say to Harmachis, whom, after having given a promise to marry, she was abanding for Mark Antony : " Well, and what is marriage ? Is it the union of the heart, that bond beautiful as gossamer, and than gossamer more light, which binds soul to soul as through the dreary night of passion they float, a bond to be, perchance, melted in the dews of dawn? Or is it the iron link of enforced, unchanging union, whereby if sinks the one the other must be dragged beneath the sea of circum- stance? Marriage! I to marry? I to forget freedom, and court the worst slavery of our sex, which, by the selfish' w...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THUBSDAY. The Recent Floods.-Now that the impend- ing- danger of more floods ia past it may be inter- ? eating to know the extent of the ravages committed by Che heavy rains.- The rainfall, which by the way registered within very few points of that which fell during the last flood, was the heaviest and fiercest that has occurred during the memory of the oldest inhabitants. To say that it came down in torrents affords to the reader a very inadtquato conception of its real force. During a lull in the . storm one might, if he felt so inclined, and was not ? averse to a slight wetting, get pretty well acquainted with the damage that was being done by the cata- racts which ran with terriffio force down from the hill at the rear of the town. At the foot of the Mac- - lean Heights, in Argyle-street, where a drain is in course of construction, there waa a veritablo cascade, which swept down past Mr. O'Connor's house with such force as co render the foundation of tho...

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] SYDNEY, TUESDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Political and Social Letter. ! LFrom our Special Correspondent. J SYDNEY, TUESDAY EVENING. I IT will be remembered that at about the beginning of last month there was published in the papers, a cablegram containing a synopis of an article on Australian poli ics, that appeared in " M'Millan's Magazine," and which waa written by Mr. B. R. WISE, of this city. According to the cablegram, the article contained a violent attack on the Roman Catholics of Australia. It stated that four-fifths of the billet-hunters belonged to that faith ; that the Catholxs always voted against the Government, that the disorderly members in the respective Par- liaments were generally Iiish representatives of Irish constituencies, and that the lay Catholics seek to monopolise the Government offices. On the day after the publication of the cablegram, Mr. Wise wrote 'a letter to the Baily Telegraph, wherein he declared that the message did not give a correct representation of what he had written concerning the ...

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

Echoes and Opinions. THE friction that exists between the ' PREMIER and his MINISTER FOR WORKS almost cansed an explosion recently in the Assembly. The trouble arose over the Bega-Eden railway, the moving spirit at the time being our own member, Mr. SEE, who, in speaking on the proposal to refer the construction of a line from Marrickville to the Burwood road, very properly remarked that although it was a proposal that might go on to the Committee for investigation, there wa3 no pressing necessity for the construction of the line. The tri:e p >licy was to open up the country by the construction of such railways as that from Bega to Eden, and twitted rather mercilessly the Premier for having failed in his promise with regard to that line, given to the Bega-Eden people only a short time back, "That it would be his duty on the first favourable opportunity to submit this railway to Fatliament for adoption." Mr. SEE wanted to know by what process of reasoning the Premier had been indu...

Woolgoolga and Coffs Harbour. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Woolgoolga and Coff's Harbour.   These are urgently needed in the interests of those who have already taken up land, as well as of those who would do so if proper facilities for shipment of produce were pro- vided. But to all, in the shape of public interest, a deaf ear is turned ; while selfish- ness and personal greed find favour. Why is this ? Because the people fail to speak out in condemnation of the wrongs that are being perpetrated. Because there is too much inaction and too much dependence on the chance of favours, which never fall. Every person visiting this district and travel- ling through it in ordinary weather is driven to the one conclusion, and that is - leaving out of the question its size, its population, and its general importance-that it is the most Grossly Neglected District in New South Wales. Could such persons see every part of the district roads as they now are, we can scarcely conceive what their opinion would be of a people who could patiently ...

A number of selections have been gazetted forfeited, but forfeiture does not take effect till next month. The sale, of Mr. S.Cohen's furniture and effects, announced to take place this week, .had to be post- poned till Wednesday next by reason .of the incle- mency ot the weather.. Very little doing in stock. The sanson has been a most favourable one in this district, and though low lands are flooded, there is good pasturage on the more elevated country.

Northern District Proposals. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

Northern District Proposals. HAVING in view the relationship of the various proposals for railway construction in these Northern districts, the one with the other, and as they will ultimately bear upon the general railway system of the colony, and the connection that these lines of railway will have to our shipping ports, it will be a calamity if the various proposals are not all at the same time submitted to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on public works so to consider them. The proposals which have been placed before the public are 1. The construction of the Graf ton-Western line from Grafton to Inverell via Glen Innes. 2. The construction of the line Grafton to the Tweed, and ultimately connecting with the Queens- land railway on the Border. Such line being constructed so as to take in the chief centres along its route, namely, Casino, Lismore, and the Brunswick. 3. The construction of that portion of the North Coast line from South Grafton through the rich lands along the ...

The Rebellion in the Soudan. A Decisive Battle Fought. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 August 1889

The Rehellion in the Soudan. A Decisive Battle Fought. THERE has been some sanguinary fighting in tho Soudan this week, resulting in a severo defeat of the dervishes. Particulars at preseut received are very meagre, bnt it appears on July 2nd Colonel Wodehouse attacked a body of about 3500 dervishes near Arguin. His force consisted ^of three black I battalions, a squadron of cavalry, "a camel corps, \ and a mule battery. The battle was fiercely cou- J tested all day, and the dervishes were finally / driven to the hills, leaving r<0() killed and wounded, ' while 500 were captured. The accounts given by wounded Egyptians who havo arrived at Wady- . Haifa, state that the action was fought at the north of Arguin. The action extended over a distance of seven miles, the dervishes retiring foot by foot as the_ troops advanced. Many dervishes are lying dead in tho desert, having perished from thirst. Women and children come during the "day to fetch water, and 130 havo been caught...

Ulmarra Council. THE monthly meeting was held on Wednesday. Present—The Mayor, Aldermen Goodger, Walz, Turnbull, Carlton, Redmond, Napper, and M'Phee. CORRESPONDENCE.—A letter was read from the District Surveyor desiring to know whether the Council would be prepared to surrender portion 431, providing the Government were to grant another and more suitable site for a recreation ground—Reply to be sent to the effect that Council would make an exchange. Alderman Goodger read a letter, from Mr. Mawhinney to himself, stating that he had re- ceived an offer from Mr. Donaldson of £50 per acre for a site as a recreation ground. That he had refused this offer; and also withdrew his offer of the same land for recreation purposes at £70 per acre.   Alderman GOODGER thought that Mr. Mawhin- ney could not be blamed for refusing this offer of £50, as he knew that some of the very land had cost him originally very much more than that price. The MAYOR thought that Alderman Goodger dese...

The Slater Case. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

The Slater Case. SYDNEY, MOND A. v.-In this case on Saturday afternoon, Mr. Justice Foster summed up at length. He said the evidence against the prisoner Dignam was that he fired two shots, either of which would be sufficient to make out the present charge, and that he fired the shots with intent ta murder. As to Johnson, there was no evidence that he fired a shot, but that he was present at the time. He thought it was a strange suggestion to throw out that Slater shot himself. They hal evidence that the shot in the leg went close to the femoral artery, and no man, not -even a dcstoi, would be able to so shoot himself without the probability of deadly injury. Again, it is suspeted that he not only shot himself in the leg, but afew seconds after he took the revolver and fired athis own shoulder in as equally dangerous a pice. These things were highly improbable. Anoher improbable idea was that after these two slots were fired Slater actually went and placed jhe revolver where it was ...

Sir H. Robinson's Resignation. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Sir H. Robinson's Resignation. TnE real history of Sir. Hercules Bobinson's resignation is remarkable. What happened was this (according to the London corres- pondent of the Manchester Examiner) : " The High Commissioner went to the Colonial Secretary and informed him that he had received offers of profitable employ- ment in England, representing a certain yearly income. In twenty-four hours he must decide whether he could accept the offers made to him or not. If within that time Lord Knutsford saw his way to accept- ing Sir Hercules' ultimatum with regard to the future of South Africa, well and good. If not, Sir Hercules must resign. To such a proposal there could only be one answer, and to his. credit Lord Knutsford gave it without hesitation. But the whole incident is an unpleasant one, and shows how important it is that high State officials should be in a position to disregard all pecuniary considerations. It is stated, I may add, that Sir Hercules Robinson will shortly become a...

Such Í3 not the case.

; A Great Agricultural: Show. - j AT the. great. Windsor Show of the Eoyal Agricultural Society, the show ground was laid out by Mr. Bennison, the society's surveyor, the shedding erected having a run of no less than 50,069ft. When it is con- sidered that most.of.this has a double front- age, and that the visitor will have to walk from each range to the next, it is estimated that to see the whole show will involve walking twenty miles at least. Nearly the whole of this has been covered by Mr. John Unite, the canvass required being no less than 170,000 square yards. The pro- gramme leads off with a detailed summary of the entries, this showing that there are 7446 entries of implements.
