Extracts from our Files. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886
KxtracU from oar Files. A deputation waited upon Mr. Glad stone on October 4 to offer the freedom of the City of Cork and other Irish towns. Mr. Gladstone, receiving the deputation, hoped for ? continuance^ of publio life, and had doe hope of settling the Irish difficulty. The cause must ultimately triumph, and he hoped promptly. A Border farmer whose practical mind soared above a taste for things beautiful had the good or bad fortune to marry a wife who brought with her a wooden substitute for one of her nether limbs. On being remonstrated with on the exercise of his choice, John answered his questioner in a manner that showed he had the shrewd utilitarian character of a Scotchman. 'Hech, sir,' said he, ' it's maybe no' a vera bonnie thing to marry a women wi' a wudden leg; but, many'she'll be awfu' usefu' at settin' time, when I'm puttin* doon my cabbage, neeps, or tatties.

Victorian Views of Mew South Wales Finances. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886
Victorian Views of New South Wales Finances. The Melbourne Argus makes the follow ing comments upon the financial condition of this colony : — ' . . The financial policy of the two last New South Wales Treasurers has been a mixture of imbecility and shuffling, but that is perhaps not thor oughly realised in London as yet. The enormous resources of the great colony concerned, the generally sound condition of private enterprise, commerce, and industry there, as well as the capacity for recovering from depression, are, however, well known everywhere. Yet the mis conduct of the present Ministry, and the unsavoury proceedings of the Sydney Assembly, must tell against the colony sooner or later. ? People at a distance, who notice the apathy of local public opinion in regard to these matters, hardly understand the general contempt for and indifference to the sayings and doings of the members of both Ministry and Assembly which prevails in New South Wales. Neither decency nor patriotism is ...
Fearful Case of Depravity. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886
Fearful Case ofDepravlty. A Kanaka named Jimmy was brought before the police magistrate at Brisbane, last week for committing a rape upon two sisters named Rebecca and Amelia Allen, aged 11 and 12 years. James Allen, about 60, and Eliza Allen, about 45, the parents, were charged with being acces sories before the fact. The revelations were of the most horrible character. Chief-Inspector Lewis, who has had many years experience amongst the criminal classes, stated that he never oould have believed such a horrible state of affairs existed. He does not blame the black savage, but the father and mother taking a nominal sum, sometimes as little as a shilling, for their daughters' dishonour. This has been going on since last Christ mas, and until their arrest three day's ago. Both the children are under thirteen, and therefore incapable of having given their consent.
Farming Without Stock. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886
Farming Without Stock. Stock raisins and farming are tho same in a eertain dense. No farmer can keep stock unless he' grows grain and grass, and no farm can be kept to a standard of fertility unless containing stock. Every farmer aims to improve his farm with his stock, and endeavours to secure the greatest yields possible per acre, using the latest and most improved methods for that purpose. .All 'farmers are quick in pointing out the mistakes of their neighbours and assisting them to avoid such in futura.' But in stock-raising the conditions seem to be changed. Tlie farmer who spends time and labour to secure a large crop of wheat or corn, resorting to the best seed and the most available machineiy, 'allows ? his crops to be wasted by inferior stock. We use the term wasted for the reason that any portion of the food consumed that does not contribute to the produc tion of some other articlo is wasted. True, it is in the manure, but a waste of time results, as the benefit from the '...

Choked by m Cherrystone. At the Enfield Petty Sessions recently, Edward Fenn, of 1 Shamrock Cottages, Alma Road, Enfield Wash, bootmaker, was charged, on his own confession, with causing the death of his son Edward, aged five years, by throwing a cherrystone down his throat. The prisoner, on being placed in the dock seemed much affected, and his wife, who was weeping on her entrance into court, became hysterical, and had to be carried away in a prostrate condition. Constable James Agg, station ed at Enfield Highway, deposed that the prisoner came up to him in a state of great distress, and said, ' I have choked my son.' The witness asked how, and the prisoner replied, 'I was playing with him with cherry-stones, trying to throw them into his breast.' The witness asked the prisoner how he knew the body was dead, and he answered, ?' I am sure, because he was black aud cold before I left the house.' The witness then took him to the police station. The other testimony adduced showed that...

Fire at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886
Fire at Nea. While the barque Himalaya, which ?arrived at Dunedin on the 3rd instant from Glasgow, was running down her easting a fire broke out on board, concerning which Captain Patterson informs me (correspondent of Auckland Star) that on the morning of Friday, 20th August, it was noticed that a smell as of gas now and then pervaded the ship. A search was at once made of every compartment, but the ilames were only intermittent, and it was not until 5 in the afternoon, when smoke began to ascend from the seams of the main hatchway, that the locality could be determined on. The hatch was at once partially cleared, the cargo in the way quickly passed on deck, and a hose got down. By this means water waB pumped into the hold throughout the night. The next morning the smoke had increased in volume, and as clouds of steam were arising it was evident that there was a body of fire below. To meet the emergency the hatch was thoroughly cleared, and a portion of the general cargo, ironwork,...

The Duly River Tragedy. FULLKR accounts of the Daly River tragedy in the Northern Territory discloses a and donic.st.ic story. On August 31, Wright Woodward Heath, who has just been sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment, had been on the Daly Kivcr Plantation, of which he wns a manager for some time previous to that date. He was quite lame, and was confined to the house. His suspicions had been aroused with regard to his wife's relations with Mr. M'Kinnon, who acted as overseer, and upon the morning of the date given he extracted from her the following confession : — While you were away in Palmerston M'Kinnon was constantly soliciting me and I refused him. I told him to go away, that lie knew I was married, and that he should let me alone. He waa constantly annoying mc every day, until Walter, being sick, went over to the copper mine. On that day M'Kiifnon was more importunate than usual. I told him to go away and let mc alone. There was no man in the place except iliim. He took me up ...

The Ipswich Advocate says: — Tho race, horse Meteor is not deid as reported, it was tho two-year-old filly Cora Lee that died from tlih effects of a kick received on tho journey from Sydney. , An innovation was in voguo at Flommgton (says tbo LKAM'.it) last Saturday, in tho form of a nolico board showing tho names of disonga^cd jockoys. Each race .was given, containing names and woights of riders open for engngo mont in such events as therein set forth. As jockeys wero ongagod, so wero their namos struck 'ut. The practice is a convenience to both ownora nnd ridors, and is worthy of adoption on all racecourscs throughout the colony. Mr. Devlin was determined act firmly on Saturday nt tho Sydney Turf Club moeting with disobedient jockoys, und owing to tho repeated refusals of tho ridors of Fairy and Folly to obey orders in the Sovereign Plato and October Handicap rospectivoly, theso horses wero sent back to tho paddock.

Departmental Extravagance. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 22 October 1886
Ilepartmental Extravagance. The Sydney Morning Herald says — ' I don't -^suppose,' writes a well-known pastoralist to us; ' yon will believe the following story ; however, it's true : — An inspector of C.P.s had a district he could easily- manage. It was cut into three parts :to make- billets.. This was not enough. Each inspector had an assistant given him, and this gentleman states there;- are six men doing the work he could easily do. Again, he has to report on;*!say,; three' selections. This would occupy the time of the Land Court iO minutes. ;„,.0na selection is near A-^-r-, another, rjear B-p- — and another C \..
