Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Echoes and Opinions. THE acceptance hy Dr. SAUSTABEZ-SMITH of the office of Bishop of Sydney and Primate of Australia in succession to Dr. BARRY, so far settles a question which at first was calculated not to end without some trouble. We say so far settles, for the reason that it is not quite settled, because the BISHOP OF ADELAIDE has entered a final protest, questioning the legality of Dr. Smith's appointment. The point raised ia undoubtedly a nice one, but still we think it must go against the Bishop of Adelaide. The proceedings in the election of a bishop of the diocese bf Sydney and primate of Australia is as follows : The Diocesan Synod in this instance selected the names of three persons. Those three names were sent to the Bishops of the province of New South Wales. They appear to have struck out the name of the Bev. Mr. CHAVASSE, leaving the names of the Rev. Mr. MOULE and Dr. SMITH. These two names were sent on to the Bishops of Australia-the Bishops of New South Wales havi...

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] SYDNEY, TUESDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent. J SYDNEY, TUESDAY EVENING. MB, CARRUTHERS and Mr. SYDNEY SMITH have had a high time in the Mudgee district. They went there ostensibly for the purpose of making themselves acquainted with the district, but really for some other purpose. I have come to this con- clusion because last night Mr. Carruthers told a Mudgee audience that that day the Cabinet had decided to include the Mudgee to Gulgong line amongst the railway proposals they intended sub- mitting to the Public Works Committee. I do not know the Mudgee district as well as 1 know many other parts of the colony, but I have an impression that a line from Gulgong to Mudgee is not required just now. It seems to me that there is more need for a railway from Bega to Eden-the territory between those two points being thickly settled and consisting of rich soil-but then Eden is a Protec- tionist constituency, and Mudgee is a two-thirds Free-trade 'one, that is in danger of ...

Review. "New Italy." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Review. ' " New Italy." BY F. C. CLIFFORD (Chas. Potter. Govt. Printer.) THE above little work, of which, we have received a copy, ia one which should recommend itself strongly to all those who have the interests of the the agriculturist at heart, and especicially to those who are acquainted with the vast resources of the Northern districts. The statistics, which have 'evidently been compiled with great care, and in some cases with considerable difficulty, are put together in an interesting and readable form, showing how a handful of men, totally unacquainted with the language and habits of the people of the district in which they settled, by dint of hard work, dogged determination and almost Spartan endurance, built np from small beginnings, a thriving settlement, and raised themselves from a state of poverty to one of comparative affluence, and this in the face of disadvantages which to the ordinary selector would seem insurmountable. The history, of the gradual development of thi...

The Colonial Treasurer's Statement [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

The Colonial Treasurer's Statement THE Opposition very nearly succeeded in precipi- tating a crisis. Perhaps it was just as well, under the circumstances, that the vote went as it did. To have brought on a crisis at this juncture, and so to have thrown away all the work of the session, especially in regard to the Land Bill (a measure which the Opposition largely approves of as em- bodying as many of their own suggestions as of those of the Government), would have been to bring much odium upon the Opposition before the country : odium that would be worked up to the full pitch in the event of a general election, which undoubtedly would follow a crisis. The closeness of the voting, however, had a good effect, and in a measure brought the Government to its knees. It served to show that the only real strength of the Ministry lies in complying with the will of the House, and that such will is not entirely centred in the Ministerial following. "We say the Ministry was brought to its knees,...

Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Notes. . _ THE Burmah Ruby Mine Co. was registered in London on the 26th February last. The number of ordinary shares offered to the public was 200,000. Within a few hour?, no less than 2,762,000 shares were applied for. Our local ruby deposits may yet come into "favour. DB. NANSEN, the intrepid explorer of ice-bound and ice-clad Greenland, is just now a hero in Lon- don society. He is only about twenty-seven years of age, and is a tall, fair-haired, and blue-eyed Norseman. His popularity is not surprising. He has done what all others have failed to accomplish, and his pluck has probably secured very valuable data calculated to confirm or confound the theories of scientists and geographers, respecting not only the country he has crossed under such giant diffi- culties, but the glacial period of Europe and America, Dr. Nansen is not alone in believing that the best way to solve the problems of the great ice age is to go to spots where similar conditions still exist. In a short time w...

Tatham. FRIDAY, AUGUST 9. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Tatham. FaiDAf, AUGUST 9. WE have had another heavy fall of rain. It com- menced last Saturday, and continued threo days and three nights. The river roBe within about seven feet of the flood of three weeks ago. The /./ weather haB now cleared. Farming operations ' have been at a stand still for the last month. Tho C. S. It. Company has commenced cane-cntting on this arm. I notice "Lover of Truth," writing from thc Richmond River, contradicts a statement that the injury to the cune on this river has been heavy from frost. About four weeks ago Mr. Holden (from the Broadwater Mill) was hero after the heavy frost on the 2nd July inspecting cane, in order to decide where they would put the ' different gangs to work when thoy engaged the ('( hands. In conversation with that gentleman, he informed me that on tho morning of the heavy frost two thermometers at Broadwater, registered two degrees lower than ever ho know it on any previous winter in that neighbourhood, and the ' *, * " frost ha...

A Glimpse of the Cloven Foot. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

A Glimpse of the ClOYen Foot. No. I. BY '. COBESBA." THE tenth nnmber of The Pastorali.it, a paper lately started in Sydney, and professing to be the advocate of the " Land interests, and a practical application of the economic sciences," contains a letter from Mr. A. W. BUCKNELL. a person once conspicuous as a contributor to the Sydney Press of lengthy productions, embodying his peculiar views on the Land Question. The letter in question is a fair sample of the sort of advocacy the " Land interests " are likely to receive at the hands of the Pastoralist, and consists of a rabid attack on the free selecting class, which is remarkable not only for ita majèstic insolence, but for its unparalleled and reckless mendacity. The writer of this frothy effusion complains in the first instance, that this " powerful class," the selectors, arrogate to themselves the title of " the people," to the exclusion of the " producers, the mer- chants, tradespeople and working men." He asserts " they har...

Will Mr. Statham Read This? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Will Mr. Statham Read This? SIB.-Permit me to make a few remarks in refer- ence to that part of the road which is known as Murty Dnggan's corner, on the" road Grafton to Broadwater. Any person travelling this part of the road naturally asks himself-why this road should leave the high ground and take to the swamps for about some twenty chains, thence about the same distance and back to high ground again. It is anything but pleasant splashing a quarter of a mile in water, especially in view of high land a few chains off. It seems a waste of money to metal this part of the road in its present position, which I notice has been recently formed to receive the metal; but goodness knows when the contractor will be able to finish it, as the water through which this part of the road passes is con- nected with the Great Marlow swamp, which extends for miles and recedes slowly-only a very few inches per week. The road should keep the high land : it is shorter, simply because it is straighter. T...

The Railway and Harbour League. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

The Railway and Harbour League.' SIE.-I notice that the annual meeting of our Railway and Harbour League is to be held next week; and at that meeting the Executive Com- mittee for the next year is to be elected. Now. considering the important position this League should occupy in this district, and its power for usefulness if the full strength of such an organisa- tion was put forth, the position of one of thc Execu- tive Committee should be one sought after by our leading public men, and one hard to obtain, unless those who are candidates for the office are men who had the very highest confidence and respect of the country. To fill the vacancies at an ordinary municipal election, we see occasionally considerable competition and feeling, and yet a municipal elec- tion is only a matter which can affect the limits of the Borough. ïhen with such an organisation as the League, wider and more important interests are involved and are at stake, and therefore there should be found on its Co...

The Horse Mange. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Thé Horse Mange. THE Government Veterinarian of. Queens- land has made the following report upon this troublesome disease, about which vets do not appear to be quite agreed as to cause or cure. No doubt the report, including as it does, suggestions as to treatment some- what dissimilar to what have been previously given by authority, will be perused with interest by stockbwners. " I have the honor to report, f orthe inf ormation of the Minister, that although no experiments have been conducted by the board with regard to the treatment of the prevalent skin disease of horses, erroneously termed ' mange '-the board not having been instructed to that effect-I have had numerous opportunities of trying the efficacy of various remedies on cases in my private practice, and as I stated in a report on this subject to the Chief Inspector of Stock in February, 1SSS, the great drawback to the treatment of this disease is the amount of time and trouble required in dressing horses; this I have mo...

A Niglit in the Model Lodging House. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

A Niglit in the Model Lodging House, I BY AN EMIGRANT. " THOSE who are going ashore and desire to stop until hiring day, will not find better sleeping accommodation for the price asked than the Model Lodging House, at this address." So said the well-known Immigra- tion Chief, Mr. Wise, as he handed round to the single men of our ship some tickets containing the address of that institution. Good beds at 9d per night, it said, and as we had become acclimatised, so to speak, to hard fare and soft boards, we thought it would not be amiss to take up our abode at night in one of the " good beds " afore- mentioned for the time being, as we, (being desirous of seeing the " beautiful harbour " and other scenes round about Sydney) should not spend too many hours between the blankets. Accordingly we wended our way to the many storied, but very bare look- ing brick building situated on the north end of Kent street, and which, being on a hill, is conspicuous from a great distance. "We went in to...
