WINDSOR AND RICHMOND ©itjette. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1888. "Let tin; journalist defend the doctrines of the party which lie approves; let him criticise and condemn the party which he does not approve: reserving always his right to applaud bis opponents or censure his friends, as the truth may require-and he will be Independent enough for a Free Country.-GARFIELD. THE GAZETTE. DESPITE the fact that one kind friend prognosti cated the decease of the WINDSOR AND RICHMOND GAZETTE in less than three months after its estab lishment. the little paper still " runs its rippling race along," has this week entered upon its second quarter, is daily increasing the number of its sup porters,. and even now has a much larger circu lation than any other local paper has ever enjoyed. During the past three months, we have had the same difficulties to contend with that usually beset newspaper proprietors who seek to establish themselves in a country town, but these diffi culties have in a great measure...

SPORTING. [THE secretaries of all local clubs and sporting organisations are requested to furnish us with reports of their meetings or gatherings at as early a date as possible. Sporting lixtures will be gladly inserted, and any information of genera) interest received with thanks J AQUATICS. The boat race between C. Wood and Williams drew a large number of spectators to the river on Saturda}' afternoon last. The course they rowed over was said to be three miles with a turn, and about 4 o'clock the opponents got away to a very good start. Wood rowed in an outrigger, and Williams in a skiff. From the first, Wood took the lead, and used his oars with such effect that he soon put a good length between himself and the Wilberforce man. He led all the way to the buoy, and turned on the home journey some four lengths ahead. This lead he increased until eight or ten lengths separated him from Williams, the row home resolving itself into a mere procession. The Williams party did not look at ...

Statutory Declaration.-I, Franz Raabe, Iron bark, Sandhurst, in the colony of Victoria, Austra lia, do solemnly and sincerely declare that on the 25th June 1877, my son Alfred, six years of age, was accidentally hurt with an axe on the knee. I at once took all pains to secure medical assist ance. However, in spite of all efforts, on the 27th August, 1878, the opinion was given by Dr. Mac gillivray that an amputation of the injured limb had become imperative in order to save life. At this juncture I called on Messrs Sander and Sons, procuring some of their Extract of Eucalyptus Globulus, and by the application of the same I had the satisfaction of seeing my son within a fort night out of danger, and to-day he is recovered. I may just add that it was when the crisis had been reached that the Extract referred to was first applied. And I make this solemn declaration, etc., -Franz Raabe. Declared at Sandhurst in the colony of Victoria, Australia, this seventeenth day of October, one thou...

A beautiful development of the free pass system has come to pass in America. In 1836 the Boston and Providence Rail road obtained a piece of land from Mr John Dodge, in return for which they gave Iiim am eternal ticket for himself and family to travel with until he was called upon to inhabit a better land. Dodge is dead and so is the family, but a grand da ughter spends most of her life on the roll ing-stock with the free pass; and "when the company contended at law that the paste board covered only one generation of Dodges the Court ruled against them, and decided that so long a living Dodge re mains to tread earth's flowery mound he must be carried free as often...
CHAPTER IX. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
CHAPTER,IX. For several nights after this last inter view, Nina, restless and wakeful, fancicd she heard sounds of movement in the room opposite hers. Sometimes she could hear a low, defi nite hum. What rest Leslie took she could not make out ; but night-work and sleepless ness did not seem to detract in the least from his good looks. Even Dan vers Vane looked at him sometimes with involuntary admiration ; and Nina, seeing this, laughed within herself. The mischief her father feared was now happily beyond his control. One morning, when Mr. Vane and Leslie were in the work-room, the latter colouring a plan which the former had desired him to draw, Mr. Vane was walk ing up and down the room in a very petu lant humour, occasionally looking over the j'oung man's shoulder, secretly ad miring the perfection and beauty of the drawing; but his lack of generosity and inherent jealousy prevented him from giving expression to his feelings. Indeed, every now and then he pointed out what he chos...

CORRESPONDENCE. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
CO BIIE S PO N1) E N CE > (TO THE EDITOR.) Deaf Sir,-I noticed in your last issue a tetter signed " Gyges," re the Wednesday half-holiday, in which Messrs Padley Bros are made a shining light as heroes for closing at 6 o'clock, p.m. The same paragraph gives one to understand that Messrs Padley Bros open at G a.m. and that they are opposed to a half-holiday on Wednesday, con sidering it to be an annoyance and inconvenience. Now I beg to differ with " Gyges," inasmuch as, iio white man can beat it into my noddle that the hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m, are any longer than from 6. a.m. to 6. p.m. Messrs Padley Bros thought the hours too long and so do I, therefore I strongly uphold the half holiday movement, for I sympathise with those over-worked counter-* jumpers. They are at it from Monday morning till Saturday night. What lime have they for re creation unless they break upon the Sabbath for an outing. Perhaps it would be some informa tion for Messrs Padley Bros* to know that 6 o'clo...
A NEGLECTED HERO. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
A NEGLECTED HERO. Few people living but are acquainted, more or less fully, with the facts of that splendid feat in arms, immortalised by Tennysor, and which will be known in history, when every individual hero of it shall have been laip to rest-The charge of the light brigade!" It is not very gene rally known that we have in Cootamundra says an exchange one of that gallant 600, who rode into the very jaws of death, with " cannons to the right of them cannons to the left of them, cannons in front of them!"-in the person of H. Steele a vendor of oranges! This sounds like coming down from the sublime to the ridiculous, but so it is. Mr. Steele gene rally has about him the proud inomentos of that glorious campaign in the Crimea, in the sape of two silver medals, one being presented by Queen Victoria, in person, bearing the name, his rigiment (8th lv. R. I. Hussars) also, on four silver lines, the names of the four great features of the grca campaign, Sebastopoi, Inker maun, Balaclave, ...
DISASTROUS FIRES. DESTRUCTION OF MR. FALLOW'S HOUSE. SEVERAL MARROW ESCAPES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
DISASTROUS FIRES. DESTRUCTION OF MR. FALLOWS HOUSE. SEVERAL MARROW ESCAPES. During the whole of last week, fires were raging in all the hills and highlands .around Windsor and Richmond. At night, the sky was red with their reflec tion, whilst the air was thick with smoke. On Friday night about 9 o'clock, a large number of townspeople gathered together to watch a fire which was burn ing in the vicinity of Freeman's Reach, little thinking at the time that Mr A. Far low's house and contents of were being .destroyed. Fires had been burning .further back for some considerable time, and it was thought that this was part and parcel of the advancing sheet of flame. It appears, however, that this conflag ration occurred accidentally. Mr. Far low had gone over to his mother's, some little distance away, and whilst sitting in the house was alarmed by hearing screams proceeding from his own home stead-. He Went out, and discovered that it was on fire. Reaching the house, he saw that thefe were ...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
TOPICS OF THE DAY. I.isten to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indiflerent good to either. How is it that the Windsor Debating Club is defunct, or, being defunct, that it is allowed to remain so ? There is no better or more popular method which can be adopted for affording the young men of the day a thorough knowledge of social and political questions than through the medium of an organization of the character men tioned, and I think that the townsmen of Windsor should endeavour to resuscitate and infuse fresh vigour into the apparently lifeless society which some time ago flourished. It is not within the four walls of a school-house, or in its dreary TECHNICS, that the brain of a young man is ex panded and strengthened. It is when the mind is taught to act and think independently that such a result is achieved. Such a society, too, has the additional advantage of familiarising the de baters with the features of many questions which would otherwise not come within th...
LAW REPORTS. RICHMOND POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1888. (Before Messrs. Onus, Lamrock, and Guest, J's.P.) ILLEGALLY USING. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
LAW REPORTS. RICHMOND POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, OCTOBER II, 1888. (Before Messrs. Onus, Lamrocic, and Guest, J's.P.) ILLEGALLY USING. Roland T^ewis, or Groves, a lad hardly as high as the proverbial sixpenceworth of coppers, was charged with illegally using a horse, the property of Frederick Mackney, of Riverstone. The prisoner was given into the custody of Senior Constable M'Neely by John Groves on Sunday last, when he had then in his possession Mackney's horse. The parties interested had no wish to press the charge, and it was, by the Bench's per mission, withdrawn. lhe same prisoner was then charged, under the Industrial Schools' Act, with wandering about, and sleeping in the open air. Groves-his step father-gave him a very bad character. He was 12 years old, and had within the last six months got entirely out of control, and was in the habit of leaving home, and sleeping out at night. The prisoner admitted sleeping out, and the Bench decided to send him to the training ship, Verno...
THE HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
THE HOLIDAY. The heavy rain which fell on Monday last pre vented thousands of persons all over the country from enjoying a holiday upon which they had set their minds, and for which they had made great preparations. At the same time, the change was most beneficial, and the rain which fell so steadily on Monday and the following day will do a deal more good than can at present be estimated. Oj the business places in Windsor, but two or three were closed, but the continuous rain prevented any of those which remained open from doing much trade. Several private picnics had been arranged, but the plans of the organisers were upset completely, and out-of-door recreation was almost impossible. One party of ladies and gentlemen secured the School of Arts, and ad journed thither to spend the day. Skating, dancing, and music was indulged in, and the com pany did their best, under the circumstances, to enjoy themselves. Other parties were compelled to put the day in in a similar manner. In the...

POETRY. TO MARY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
POETRY.^ . TO MARY. Where Beauty is smiling With Love undenied, Where Gladness is flowing From Pleasure's hill-side, Whatever of charming I elsewhere may see, I can turn from it, Mary, To think upon thee. When winds of affliction Blow cold on my rest, And the pang that will sleep not Is loud in my breast, Still however clinging These troubles may be, I can turn from them, Mary, To think upon thee. When Weariness sleepeth And Care is at rest, When Happiness dreameth Of all it loves best, Then as the moon gazes Upon the broad sea, My soul o'er thy dwelling Looks down upon thee ! CHARLES HARPUR.
Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 13 October 1888
Riverstone. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Mr. Alex. Bowman, M.L.A., visited Riverstone and Rouse Hill last week. His constituents have asked him to do lots of things-too much I am afraid. He promised them he would do the best he could. No doubt he will to the best of his ability, but I fancy they have asked him to do too much at one time. The fire which broke out in Fitzgerald's Pad- dock, on the Blacktown Road last week, has done considerable damage to fencing, &c. It was not extinguished until the welcome rain came on Monday. Another concert in connection with the Relief Society will be held in the Cosmopolitan Hall on Saturday, the 20th instant, at 8 p.m. The Society has purchased a piano, which will be used solely for the above concerts. The ladies and gentle- men who assist in this charitable work intend having a rehearsal some evening next week, and some excellent singing is expected from them. Your readers will be very glad to learn that Mr. John Schofield is much better ...
