Local Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 15 December 1888
Local Topics. We trust tlmt the men of Redforn will testify their disapprobation of such Jim-Grow unties as those Mr. AVeatheicock Sehey has been indulging in by declining to contiuuo to him their confidence. They gave him an opportu nity — and he has missed it. They should now let him slide. Such shifty fellows are better out of a Legislative Assembly than in it. There's a letter in another column, signed ' Kutepayer,' which is very full of very acid reflections upon Mr. Mayor Jones, of Prospect and Sherwood. 'We publish it because there is no doubt in our minds that Mr. Jones as good as 'asked for it' bv his recent behaviour in the MoMauis case. At the same time we take this opportunity to I ell 'Ratepayer' that he would have played a manlier part had ho signed his name to his communication, ftlr. Jones, any way, has the courage of his convictions. A fellow who would shoot, knowingly, at a carrier pigeon while out on duty would be capable of any meanness. Yet, sad to say, such sku...

THE FKUITOEOWBliS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15. MRS. CUNYNGHAME'S DIS MISSAL. Dismissal from the public sorvieo is ;i vory serious punishment.

If she actually committed all the several breaches of duty charged against lior, as wo supposo Sir Henry 1'aukks believes she did, sho certainly merited dismissal. So much we freely admit, liut with all respoct for tho Promier (who is occasionally vory credulous in tho matter of reports handed to him by persons whom ho favours — (cxle- his credulity as regards Mr. 1'jjuos's antecedents) we fail to see that tho charges mado against Mrs. Cuj-yxo.iiajie havo boon proved.

Mrs. Ounynghame's Dismissal. THIS CHARGES MADE AND REPLIES THERETO. SOME FLAT CONTRADICTIONS. Tirn dismissal of Mrs. Cunynghamo from the position which, for the last fourteen years, she has occupied at the Macqunrio-.stroot Asylum, Parramatta, is a matter that deserves more than 11 passing m.tiou. In 187j Mrs. Ciinyng haiue, then Miss Gibson, was sent to lu'co charge of a hospital for erysipelas patients, which a year later tho Government thought fit to open as an asylum for infirm and destitute. On the 1st of August last, Mr. Sydney Max ted was appointed director of all ohnrii able insti tutions in the colonv. and with tho usual char act eristics of anew br. 0111, seemed to have at once started to make some re-arrangement in tho management of all establishments placed under his charge. This attention seamed to have been particularly directed to the Mncquario siroot Asylum, for almost daily telegrams re lating to'a desired change in (he management were received up to the i(l;h of Oc...

Carlingford. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 15 December 1888
Carlingford. AVk have had some soaking showers, which set the creeks running, filled up the watcrholes, and gave fresh supply to tho wells, besides doing a lot of good to tho orchards. Tho fruitgrow ers are now busy picking the early apricots, poaches and plums. Mr. George Ray has about the finest plot of grape vines 1 have seen this season. They show for a good crop of grapes. Tub railway tares have been reduced to a moie satisfactory scale, which will be the means of increasing the passenger traffic. In the mutter of taking soil off the roads, many think they have a right to take the top soil oil' tho road, but I doubt it. In many cases not so much objection would be raised to their taking the soil if they afterwards left it in a decent state, but not the way somo persons do ? — viz., leaving stumpholes, heaps of big roots, hills and hollows which are bad enough in tho daytime ; and at night a person stands a chance of breaking his neck. I think the Jloast they could do would be t...
