Clarence River Harbour Works. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
Clarence River Harbour Works. Sis.-With your permission I -would beg space to give a little freedom of opinion on these works. First : Many years back I stated through your columns that a Northern wall from the beach out seaward, say three-quarters of a mile, was all that would be ever wanted to give us a good, deep, and straight ckannel through where the trees now grow, just near the North wall ; and after seeing so muek expense and mistakes and delays, and what is likely next to be done (the Southern wall first) Ï wish to state why I think so still. We have a good South Ilead, and if a North wall was mn out as above¿it would do for the purpose of a North Head (instead of. as now, the beach). This wall would cut off'the beach sand from coming in with the flood tides and north-east weather, and, of course, if the sand is thus cut off from coming in. again it would not want driving out with the next ebb tide. Second : A Southern or any inside training wall, other than to protect the ...

When Mr. Lincoln was a Young Lawyer. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
When Mr. Lincoln was a Young Lawyer. TVIIEÎÎ Mr. Lincoln, the new American Minister to London, was a young lawyer, his only fault was that he did not know his own value. According to the Washington Post, Judge Logan, under whom he read Jaw, told him not to be afraid to charge big fees for his services. "People don't respect a cheap lawyer," said the judge. One day soon after Mr. Lincoln had been admitted to practice, he sat alone in his office, when a messenger brought a note from the Chicago agent of one of the wealthiest insurance companies in America, asking to have the title of a certain piece of property looked up. The young lawyer spent about half an hour looking into the title, and then sent his report to the insurance office. Pretty soon the messenger came with another note. This one requested Mr. Lincoln to send his bill by the bearer. He figured it that, since he had worked only half an hour, 10 dois, would j be a good stiff price, for it would be at the rate of 200 dois, ...
Assisting "the Greatest Man that Ever Lived." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
Assisting ' ' the Greatest Man that- Jk Ever Lived." z " WORDS OD Wellington," recently published,, contains many amusing anecdotes on the- -. . "Iron Duke." The following is character--^ istic : ' The Duke detested being helped ; not front ingratitude, but from two distinct feelings one, that he did not like to be thought, what he certainly was not, decrepit; the other,, that he knew very well that the majority of persons who helped him simply did so im order to be able to say that they had done so.. Thia was to him revolting. Standing opposite to Apsley House in the evening in Piccadilly,, when the street was even more crowded than, it is now, the Duke was hesitating on the kerbstone. A gentleman nearly aa old as; * himself made some demonstration of assisting him to cross the road,.endeavouring to check, the tide of cabs and other vehicles that was . setting strongly. When the Duke reached the gate at Apsley House he touched his hat,, and said, " I thank you, sir." The elderly st...
Farm and Station. Horse-breaking Extraordinary. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
0 " Farm and Station. Horse-breaking Extraordinary. " I WTLL give yoa the method introduced by my grandfather in a very early day, say 1808. .They would have the colts dropped about the last of May or the first of June. Some times the colts would not be seen for one, ttfo, and three weeks. The mothers and tlie colts were so very wild, yon could not get near them unless they would come out of the woods pasture, for at that time there were not many fences to bother them from getting away. When they did come for salt, the mothers would leave the colts about one half-mile away from where they were getting salt. Mothers and colts were as wild as deers. There was a lot called a stable, but there was about one acre in it. With the assistance of about fifteen men or thereabouts the mothers and colts were gathered in that lot, the mares were led to the horse, and the colts were branded with a large letter B. The branding iron was gotten up by some of the blacksmiths of that day. The shear to...
The Agricultural Society of N.S. Wales A Move in the Hight Direction. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
The Agricultural Society of N.S. Wales A Move in the Hight Direction. . IR is encouraging to observe that the Agricultural Society of New South Wales has token measures to amend its rules in many important particulars, even to the extent of materially altering its constitution. Amongst some of the most important alterations, as set forth, in the objects, are the establishment of relations with district societies in this and adjoining colonies, and of correspondence with kindred societies in Europe, America, and elsewhere.

The Maize Output. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
The Maize Output. D'OR the month of July, the exports of maize from j the Clarence only reached about 60,000 bushels, a considerable decrease on that of June. The por- tion of the crop sent to the Sydney market up to the end of last month would therefore amount to . j (in round numbers) about 560,000 bushels. As we remarked a month back, shipments from the river must decline, as the stock could not long stand the rate of export carried on during June, but few -expected the reduction would be so great. It will " yet be six full months before the next, crop can be harvested, and if that on hand ba evenly dis- tributed over that period, the exports per month cannot be large. Complaints are, however, made of the inroads of weevil, which will necessitate a speedy marketing of the' crop ; and probably by the end of the year there ?will be little in the producer's hands. The crop, which was a very fair one, was chiefly disposed of during the four months of its ingathering, the ruling price...
The Coming Season. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
1 The Coming Season. . ; ALTHOUGH favoured by a genial winter, our far- mers will be later than usual in commencing to '? ; . sow their early maize crop, owing to the heavy ; ' , gluts of,rain in this and last month. Preparatory \- operations were delayed, and whenever the land is ''?) \" suitable to resume ploughing, onr maize growers ? will be very busy. It ÍB fortunate the heavy falls - . . were not a little later, or much maize would need ; replanting. It will be a wiße precaution this year to turn the land over as speedily as possible, as the excessive rainfall will cause the land to bake and ; . . ' harden under the summer sun. and if ploughing be , ' deferred tilHate. it may be almost impracticable to ; i perform it. The rubbish from last season is caus . ' Mg trouble, by reason of the absence of frost to 'destroy it, and where not ploughed down before . the rain will interfere greatly with the sowing of early maize. The potato crop will not be so large as anticipated prior t...
Improved Maize Cleaner. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
] Improved Maize Cleaner. , , Â KCiiBEK of persons, including the manager of '?' the Clarence and N, C. Farmers' Co-operative /Association, inspected the working of one of Mr. .'. G. A. Jordan's maize cleaners afc work afc Sonth Grafton on Tuesday. , The samples of maize , experimented on was as dirty as could well be " . obtained, and' plentifully stocked with weevil. The machine, which simultaneously effects the operation of threshing, cleaning; and bagging, ' separated the dust and weevil from the grain, .reducing it to a perfectly clean sample. Since we .: , last noticed the appliance it has been improved by . substituting chain for canvass bands for the elevators, thus rendering them to be less liable to be affected by the weather, and an alteration has i . ; Leen made in the bagging shoat, whereby the grain .oan be diverted in an instant when the bag is full into an empty one alongside, without stopping 11 , the machine. The apparatus is very complete, '' has the virtue of bei...
THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZER. Flood Deposits. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZER. ' . ... Flood Deposits. - THE analysis of certain flood deposits by íur. Angus . Mackay, proving their enormous fertilising power, ; has occasioned some discussion by correspondence ? through the press. To an almost universal estent 1 the alluvium, of floods enriches the soil where ' ^ deposited, but there is considerable difference in the ' - fertilising strength of the deposit as distributed over the various places. Strange though it may ? "/seem, the same flood -will leave a thick sticky deposit in ose locality, -while in another part which it has submerged the sediment is largely composed of drift sand, which cannot be so fertilising as the , ^former. Even on the Hawkesbury, from where "?Mr. Mackay obtained such satisfactory results, it is , ' well known that the largest flood ever seen on that river left on numbers of farms a deposit of several rfeet of almost pure sand, 'damaging, instead of increasing, the productive properties cf the soi!....
Maclean District Court. FIRST DAY—MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889
Maclean District Court. I rinsT »Air-ISOXDAT. BEFORE His Honor JUDGE MURRAY. The Court re-opened at 8 p.m. MALCOLM M'PHEBSON Y. JOSEPH WALSH. Work and labour done, £13. Mr. M'Guren for plaintiff, and Mr. Jenkins for defendant. There 1 was another case on the list-M'Pherson and Basset v. Walsh, work and labor, £6-and it was decided to take the two together. Malcolm M'Pherson deposed, that he and Basset took a contract on trial from defendant for drawing a quantity of stone which was to be utilised in the construction of the approaches to the Serpentine Bridge, for which defendant had the contract. After working for a week or so, they found it an unprofitable undertaking, and interviewed defend- ant upon the subject, representing that it would not pay them. Defendant then offered them Cs per yard for drawing and delivering the stone, whioh they refused, but subsequently agreed to draw the stone at 43 per yard. They drew about 130 yards and then sent for defendant to come and measure i...
