Harwood Island. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Harwood Island. " . THURSDAY. uus aiEiiBEB,-lesterday we had a visit from Mr. M'Farlane, daring which time he inspected the new road to the Serpentine, and although this road is in a very had state at the present, we have the consolation of knowing, through his indefatigable efforts, that a sufficient sum of money will be expended to make this a first-class road. The : other portion of the road across Chatsworth Island will soon be opened, the surveyors have inspected the situation, and they propose taking the road in a direct line across Mr. H. M'Farlane'sfarm. An act of injustice is about to be perpetrated, inasmuch that Mr. M'Farlane is expected to fence this road without receiving any compensation. OUB STEAM FUST was stopped a few days, while some repairs were effected to the boiler, but she has resumed work, and will continue for a few weeks, when she will be taken off for general overhaul. > fe THE NEW MILL is now in full swing and works splendidly.

THURSDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

XIIURSSAY'S SITTINGS. THE Legislative Council spent five hours discussing the case of a Chinaman, who was sentenced to 12 months in gaol for assault by Judge McFarland, who refused a copy of his notes to the ConncH. A motion to inquire into the Judge's conduct was negatived, but a Select Committee was appointed to inquire into the sentence. In the Assembly on Thursday, Mr. M'MILLAN said the sheds erected for storage of agricultural produce at Darling Harbor are not used, as they are unsuitable. On the motion of Mr. WRIGHT, it was agreed to refer to the Railway Commissioners for report, the proposed line of railway from Glen Innes to Inverell. Mr. HURLEY will move that "The Nyngan Cobar railway be the first work considered by the. Works Committee." Mr. GoODCHAP moved the adjournment of the House to reply to the serious statements made by the new Commissioners, and backed up by Messrs. Price, Williams, Thow, Angus, in their reports regarding the rolling stock, which, he alleged, was n...

WEDNESDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

THE Council leached the 25th clause of thc Land | Bill. So far the Council has made no vital amendments in the Bill. In the Assembly, in answer to Mr. O'SULLIVAN, ' Mr. M'MILLAN said in the case of the tobacco j stolen from the Bungendore railway station, it could not be traced, and that every care had been taken to prevent railway theft. Mr. BRUCE SMITH, in reply to Mr. NICOLL, said that an officer had been instructed to report upon the shoaling of the South Arm of the Rich- mond River, but owing to the flooded state of the river he had been unable to deal with the matter. But as soon as his report was received, the question of dredging would be considered. In reply to Mr. TOBPY, the PREMIER said the Government intended to bring in a Bill next session providing for the establishment of a central Agricultural College, and Model Farms in country districts. Mr. EWING asked when borings would be made at the Tweed River Heads. Mr. BRUCE SMITH asked for more definite particulars as to th...

Banquet to Mr. Samuel Cohen, J P THE banquet tendered to Mr. Coben on the occasion of his departure irom the district, was held in Mr. Capp's theatre, Ulmarra, and about 27 residents assembled, the Mayor (Mr. M'Callum) being in the chair, and Mr. J. B. Carlton, J.P., in the vice-chair. The tables were very tastefully laid out by Mr. Creighton, and the affair, out of consideration for the many Templars present, was conducted on I.O.G.T. principles, the various toasts being honoured in " Schwepps."

Public Meeting at Lawrence. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Public Meeting at Lawrence. IN response to an advertisement, 43 residents of Lawrence district attended a meeting in Mr. W. M-Pherson's building, The( attendance was in every respect a thoroughly representative one, and consequently it may be inferred that the result of the meeting is likely to meet with general appro- bation. Previous to the time appointed for beginning the business there appeared to be a few persons among the audience who had some slight misapprehension as to whether the functions of tlie Lawrence Progress Association (of which the meeting was the outcome) had actually ceased or not, and to test the feeling of those present, and also arrive at a legal conclusion, Mr. John Parsons took the chair. Mr, E. SHIELDS said he would like Mr. Parsons to explain by what right and by whose authority he took the chair. Mr. PARSONS : I was appointed chairman j)ro I tem by the Progress Committee upon receipt of Mr. j Drummond's resignation as such, g Mr. SHIELDS : Mr. Drummond h...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THUBSDAY. Departmental Information.-Our member, Mr. M'Farlane, brings with him the very welcome intelligence that Mr. Lewi3 (whose arrival has been expected in Maclean for some months past) will positively leave Sydney for here on Tuesday next. The length of his visit will probably be regulated by the time occupied in getting our boundary difficulty settled, and any other business that may crop np. The visit of the head of the Local Government Department strikes one as being a splendid opportunity of bringing under his notice any nice points with regard to the Municipalities Act which may require adjusting. ' Political-Our Parliamentary representative was the means of drawing together a large number of people at Palmer's Island on Wednesday night, and local grievances were fully and freely discussed. One matter upon which the people down there seem to be very sore, is the shed on the wharf-or as it is called the " fishermans' umbrella." In the report . of th...

Southgate. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Southgate. THURSDAY. MEETING.-A Progress Committee meeting was held at Mr. Jno. Farrell's on Tuesday evening, at which it was decided to petition the Government to remove the road to higher land, at that portion of the road known as the "Frenchman's Lane," on the Southgate and Grafton road. A deputation of three members of committee have interviewed Mr. Adams on the subject, and he agrees to same pro- vided he is compensated. A public meeting is to be convened for Monday evening next in connection with this matter ; also to take steps respecting the establishment of a telephone-office here. With anyone who knows the district, there is no neces- sity to advance reasons in favour of our claims. However, we appear to get very little attention from the Government. It is questionable if any road in the district is need more than this one, and ^ probably there is none in a worse state. The traffic B - along this route to the Bichmond fiiver would no m v doubt, be considerably increased if...

Commercial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Commercial. THE principal business of the week was the       selecting of 2717 ¾ acres, in eight blocks, the larger number of which were taken at the head of the Orara, for agricultural purposes. Now that it has been definitely decided to erect the jetties at Woolgoolga and Coff's Harbour, it is likely that a considerable area of land will be selected. On Monday next a Crown Land sale will be held at Lawrence, when upwards of 90 town lots will be submitted, varying in area from 1 to 2 roods. It is expected that there will be a good deal of com- petition for some of the blocks. They are to be sold under, the deferred payment system. The terms being so liberal will perhaps induce many to bid who would not otherwise speculate. Since the       late floods and consequent submersion of the paddocks and swampy land, there is a demand for grazing land in high localities. The stock and maize markets are unchanged, ...

Mr. M'Guren argued that the land was not enclosed within the meaning of the Act, as the road was not fenced off. The Bench agreed th...

At a London Show. [WRITTEN FOR THE CLARENCE EXAMINEE.] By an Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

I At a London Show. 1 WRITTEN FOB THE CLARENCE EXAMINEE.] By an Australian. DESPITE " the frequent trains," there was not a vacant seat in the long line of carriages when the 1.15 steamed out of the Paddington station-desti- nation Windsor. Should any stranger inquire how to know when close approaching London by train, the answer is simple-by long rows of narrow back yards full of clothes (not white as snow) hung out to dry. From the north, from the south, from the east, from the west, it is a -sign-unchanging and unchanged, whether you pass along the level ground or through a forest of chimney pots. As in coming in, so in going out. But when once fairly beyond the back yards and clothes lines, you are soon in the open country. There you quickly forget the black smoke, the noise, the bustle, the traffic, the underground and overhead-among the chimney-pots, or through the chimney. The country looks splendid ; the fields beauti- fully green. The grass soft as velvet-springing up-ready...

THE Clarence und Richmond Examiner. ! ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MORNING? 17TH AUGUST, 18S9. The Work of Municipal Bodies. THE work of Municipal bodies is being discussed just now in metropolitan journals, and some mild censure is being recorded in respect to want of sanitation in respect to the suburban municipali- ties. In reading what is being said upon that point, one can hardly come to other conclusion than that municipal bodies in this colony are much alike everywhere. Of course, it is not to be expected, considering the diversity of advantage accruing to suburban municipalities aa compared with those in the country, that the latter should be perfect examples of local government when the former fails in that respect. A word of warning, however, should never be cast aside, and some of the references to the suburban bodies and their work, or absence of work, may help to keep the country bodies'from sinking into the same groove In saying this, we do not for one moment wish to be...
