ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894
ECHOES OF SPOET. Although Tom Cush has.lately returned Killeena to Turanville for a much needed reBt, his stables continue full, and all the horses under his charge appear to be very bright and healthy, and in for ward condition. The foremost place among them must, I suppose be given to Master Grand, who a few weeks back was entrusted to Cnsh by Mr. John Hart, and it is to be hoped that the handsome black son of Grandmaster aud Black Swan — who is not at all unlike Navigator — will Etand a thorough preparation, for he has ahown the possession of pace, and looks as iE he could stay for a week. Both forelegs have been blistered and fired, but although they do not bear a very encouraging appearance they are hard atid calloused to the touch. Another of Mr. Hart's repre sentatives is The Queen's big bay sister who is fashioning into a fine mare, but I would ^ike to see her broader in the quarter, although of course it is only natural to expect her to thicken and put on muscle when she is...

The Execution of Mrs. Enorr [From the Press Telegraph Association.] THE WOMAN DIED FBRMLY. Melbourne, Monday, Mrs. Knorr was executed this morning in Mel bourne Gaol. She walked firmly to the scaffold and made a speech concerning the crime for which she was executed.

LATEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. SYDNEY. Wednesday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
QPFfil A' I TH TCH & If ^ [From the Press Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Wedn'sday afternoon. There was comparatively little excitement in the vicinity of Parliament House to-day, the opening of the session by CotnmiBsion robbing the function of the pomp and pageantry usually inseparable from such an event. The military band and the cavalry and artillery which invariably attend to pay homage to the Governor, were conspicuous by their absence, and the small crowd congregated in Macquarie-street appeared unable to work up the slightest enthusiasm. Everything connected with the ceremony passed eff quietly. The address in reply in the Assembly was to be moved by Sir W. P. Manning, seconded by Mr. Morgan ; the same duties were undertaken ia the Council by the Hon. R. H. D. Whito and Dr. Creed. Voluntary sequestrations : — Reginald Charapness Pluck, Islington, near Newcastle, plumber; Samuel Morris Page, Greta, hotelkeeper. John M'Carthy, a stalwart looking customer of the larrik...
Unpleasantly Funny. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
Unpleasantly Funny. The Naw York Tribune relates an adventure whioh lately befel a young amateur ventriloquist and magician of that city. He is very clever and andacious, and naturally his company is much sought after among the people of his own set. One day he received a note from a friend, a lady, begging him to come to her house the next evening. The children were to have a party, and it would be a great favour if he would come over and entertain them. On his way up-town the next afternoon, there fore, he bought a mask of a huge donkey's head the big jaw of which was so arranged that the pulling of a Btring caused it to utter a lifelike and horrible bray. That evenine. an hour or no afi-n* tVi-» n.«Q appointed, he went to the house, threw off his over coat in the hall and ran up-stairs, putting on his mask as he went. Through the eye-holes he could see dimly that a good many people were assembled in the room at the head of the stairway. With a terrible hee-haw he threw himself on...
Full Dress. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
Full Dress. Tke author of ' On Sledge and Horseback to the Siberian Lepers' was determined not to freeze to death. She had a whole outfit of woollen underwear, then a loose kind of waist lined with flannel, a very thickly wadded eider-down ulster, with sleeves long enough to cover the hands entirely, and a fur collar reacniEg nign enough to cover the head and face. Overall this she had a sheepskin reaching to the feet, and furnished with a collar which came over the fur one. Then over the sheepskin she wore a dacha, which is a fur coat of reindeer skin. But this was only the beginning. On my feet were stockings made of long hair ; over them a pa:r of gentleman's thickest hunting stockings ; over them a pair of Russian boots made of felt, coming high up over the knee; and over ;hem a t-air of brown fftlfc ?»«!!-?« Mas T^ion t«/q= provided with a large fur bag or sack, into which I could step. My head-covering was a fur-lined cap, and the et oeteras consisted of shawls, rugs, and wrap...
Pastoral News, Stock Movements, and Markets. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
Pastoral News, Stock Move ments, and Markets. Dbniliquin Stock Report.— The week has been a fairly warm one but nothing like what it usually is at this time of the year. Up to the present there has not been a really oppressive night, and the mornings have been invariably cool and pleasant. A change threatened on Thursday. The barometer fell rapidly during the day but only a gale of wind resulted during the afternoon. To-day the tempera ture is again lower. Rain is badly wanted through out the district. In the Deniliquin district there is a satisfactory immunity from bush fires, but in the north-west they have been numerous and disastrous. The river at Deniliqnin is at 13ft. Sin. and rising slowly, but it is unlikely to rise much more as nearly all the late flood water from Albury is now down. The two local boil ing down works are still in full operation. The following are the stock passings : — 14,580 ewes from Till Till to John Oddy and Sons' Boiling Down 'Works, John Murphy in cha...
TAREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
TAREE. The weather has for some time past been awfully hot, the thermometer registering 95 and 100 deg. in the shade on several occasions, but on Saturday last this celebrated township was visited ' y a terrific thunderstorm, when, at different places in this district, rain fell in torrents for well nigh an hour, and afterwards, on account of the accumu lated waters on the roads, one almost required the services of a boat to get along. Aa very dry weather prevailed for some time past rain was badly wanted, and the crops began to wither very quickly. Many farmers spent a considerable time in watching the movements of every floating cloud, hoping that it would portend rain, and their wishes have been, duly satisfied. Since the welcome and looked for fall of rain everything seems to have put on quite a Btniling appearance, for the maize crop3 now present a magnificent view to the beholder, as it looks remarkably well, and offers brilliant prospects to tho growers, who gladly and silent...

MANNING RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
MANNING RIVER. A splendid downfall of rain took place in this district last Saturday afternoon, at which the farmers particularly rejoiced, as the weather was keeping too dry for their growing maize. The crops everywhere are looking splendid, and give promise of a very great yield. The festive season passed over very quietly in this district, so I am told, having been away myself doing the city. On New Year's Day an excursion to the Heads took place in the favorite b.s. Electra, in aid of the local hospital. An immense number availed themselves of the outing, and the hospital benefitted by over .£70, as the boat was lent by the N.C.S.N. Company free of any charge. Another excursion is advertised to be run on Anniversary Day, in aid of the same institution, by the Meein- » derry, the new opposition steamboat. The butter factory on the lower river having proved such a great success, steps are now being taken to found one at Purfleet, opposite to Taree. It is to be heped it will be as ...
A MOVE FOR FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
A MOTE POjE FEDEBATION. 'Whatetee opinions may be held of the merita o£ Dr. Quick's Federal OongreBs bill, moBt people who advocate federation will concur that it deserves the praise due to a measure which keeps the movement before the public. And we hold that every incentive to the public to talk about federation, nod to think about how it may be accomplished, ib a gain to the cause. Even the familiar state ?ment reiterated by Mr. Lyne at Lithgow on Monday— that federation will be furthered by an increase of the New South Wales customs duties— has a value. For it stirs people to leflect whether hostile tariffs are after all the best means to generate fraternal love. Dr. Quick's device is one eminently calcu lated to promote diacuBsion. A? he has ex plained to meetings in tho metropolis, an impression is abroad that the draft bill of the Convention is not a democratic measure. Here we may be permitted to remark that in the use of the word democratic may be dis covered a great deal o...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 17 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. We are again to be sorely disturbed by the advice given of the intention of tho postal authori ties to again alter the time-table as regards the wail trains. Concerning the ordinary traffic, the public must raake the best of any alteration the railway service recda ; but with the mail trains the convenience of the commercial public is of para mount importance. We have before us tho text of the former reply of the postal authorities, and one clause in it Bhould be sufficient to war.ran.fc a determined stand being made against aDy alteration in the time for the departure of the mail trains from here or further north. The reply of Mr. Lambton distinctly states 'That no benefit would arise to the New South Wale3 correspondents by the change, and that the existing arrangements will not allow of alteration without serious inconvenience and much more ex pense to this department.' Wherfore then this sudden change of front? We most emphatically protest against any change which wil...

Minutes of previous meeting were read and confirmed. Cobeespondencb — Letters were read from Mr. J. N. Brunker, M.P. stating that it wotfld afford him much pleasure to take immediate action to obtain a sum of money for the purpose of rendering the Louth Park Koad available for traffic ; that it was a source of considerable annoyance and deep regret to him to find that the system of centraliza tion so fully practised in the past was still being retained in a more vigorous form, and that whilst unfortunate settlers were compelled to sustain themselves and their families by traversing country roads were deprived of the paltry sums required to keep them in passable o...
