Some Possibilities of Australia's Future. TnK&bovc formed thu subject of a very interesting ndilress at St. Leonard's, Sydney, last week, by Sir Henry Pferkes. We feel sine our ruudera will peruse tlie remarks (as given iu the Sydney Morn iny Hei'oM) with a Urge amount of satisfaction. The Premier said :— I have taken for my subject ' The Possibilities of Australia's Future,' and I clioue it because it appears to me to afford a glimpse of the future, which iu tlie midst of the Imsy work which falls to the lot of most men every day they thiuk very little of, and because I think there are proceedings in the community which of necessity tcud to that state of turmoil, contention, anil disagreement, winch few people at the present time forecast or arc able to measure.

A Sad Tale of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 13 October 1888

A Sad Tale of the Sea. From a Western Australian source we (S. A. Jlegitter) have been put in possession not only of the sequel of the story of the 13 Frencli refugees whose sad situation ou the Crozot Islands was so strangely made known a twelvemonth ago, but also of facts enough to enable us to fill iu the details of their distressing experiences. Some of this information has reached us before, but there arc many particu lars that we have not hitherto published. From first to last the record is a deeply pathetic one. On March 9, 1887, tbe three-masted iron ship Tamaris, from Bordeaux, during the prevalence of a thick mist, struck upon one of the tiny islands in the Indian Ocean which are the terror of navigators who happen to be driven too far south. The vessel became a complete wreck ; and the captain and crew, snatching np such light provisions as they were able to save, took to the boat. For 48 hours they were on the open sea, and then they succeeded in landing ou Hog Island, o...

Bawdon Island. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 13 October 1888

Eawdoa Island. (FROM OUB CO '.RESPONDENT.) We. are again enjoying a seasonable downfall of rain. The heat of the past two weeks, accompanied as it was by high winds, had evaporated much of the moisture from the soil, so that the need for rain was being felt. All foars are, however, now dispelled iu that respect, and farmers will have their work cut out to keep their growing crops clean. Most of the maize is now planted, everyone having endeavoured to take time by the forolock, with a view to shunning the ravages of the no»v dreadod blight, past experience having proved that oarly-sown maize stands the best chance of yielding good returns. We shall, therefore, watch with interest tho outcome of the present season's labours. A ahort time ago we were favoured with a visit from Mr. Catt, clerk of works in con nection with the Education Department. The object of such visit, I understand, was to ascertain the extent and nature of the repairs required in connection with the public school h...

Tlie gate swings unevenly, and i« kspt shut by means of a piece of wooil or tonic moh article, and necessitates a pcrs'in dismounting for tho purpose of opening anil closing it, which should certainly not be the case. The advantages acrivca irom naviug eucn gates snouia uc suiucwnt recompense for keeping tliem in good order ; besides, the person for whose convenience the gutc in question was granted, is legally bound to keep it in proper order, and should not cause the pnhlic to miffer from uefilcot, in this direction. In the event of an accident happening, no doubt the consequences would soon become clear. I hope this matter will be attended to, now that public atteution has been drawn to It.— Yours truly, Ik INCONVENIENCKD. Hollands Plain...
