A FRACAS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
A FRACAS. AT Narrabri Messrs Dale (solicitor) and Moseley, a bumptious squatter, have been at loggerheads for some time. They have had many snarls at each other, which once culminated in fisticuffs at a church meeting IN A CHURCH, when the man of law came to dismal and unmitigated grief. Last week, Mr. Dale appeared in the police court against some townspeople in a question of disputed rates. Mr. Treacher was brought down from Gunnedah to defend the rate payers, and before the court opened, had a seat at the end of the solicitor's table. He | went out for a few minutes, when Mr. Dale , took the seat he had occupied. Mr. Mose ? ley immediately claimed it for Mr. Treacher and Mr. Dale declining to move, Mr. Mose I ley either pushed him out of it, or ~ pulled the chair from under him. At all events, ! Mr. Dale violently vacated the disputed i chair coming to the floor in a manner " quite unexpected." Shortly after wards the Police Magistrate came in, when Mr. Dale made a complaint, and...

SPECIAL SERMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
SPECIAL SKKMOaS. On Sunday last the Rev. \V. Hill delivered I m special sermons at the Wesleyiin ( hurch. The morning text was 2 Sam. xxi., xvii., " 1 lion shall go not out with us to the battle ; thou shalt quench not the lamp of Israel." The substance of the discourse was appropriate to the topic chosen, i.e., " Shining Lamps." The rev. speaker was listened to with much attention, and really delivered an eloquent and instructive sermon. " Stalking Giants" formed the subject of the evening's sermon, and the text was from Deut. i.v, ii., " Who can stand before the sons of Anik ?" Anak was the son of a pliant named Arba. who built Kirjat.b-A.rbn, or Hebron. That man of renown, Caleb, put several of his descen dants to flight, especially Sheshai, Ahimam, and Talmai. The sons of Anak meant the posterity of Anak, who, because of their gigantic baild and great strength, were called An il- ims. The ex plorers of Canaan, in giving their report, de scribed themselves as grasshoppers in comp...
REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
REVIEW. CASABIANCA.-The above is an adaptation of music to the beautiful words rif Mrs. Heman's, by Mr. O. Nash. The melody is of a commonplace character, but still tuneful, and easy of execution. The harmonies are very neatly arrnnged, showing a good knowledge of counterpoint, though at times lab Mincl ; for initince, in the eig'it bar, the lower K in the bass is introduced in a chord of the dominant, of which it is not a component part. The music is made to accentuate with the words very well, and, although the composer adopts the unusual course of concluding the treble part with the fifth in the scale, the composition may be re garded as one that would suit ordinary choirs more as a part song than as a solo.

SOME IMPRESSIONS OF A RECENT VISIT TO MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
SOME IMPRESSIONS OF A RE CENT VISIT TO MELBOURNE. About eight years ago I paid a visit to the metropolis of Victoria, and then saw the first exhibition. Last month, I re newed my acquaintance with that great city, my chief purpose being to have a sight of the Centennial Exhibition. I noticed great changes. Melbourne and its suburbs have increased very much ; magnificent buildings, some of them a great height, appear everywhere, and the hotels and coftee palaces are superb. The Exhibition is much larger than its predecessor, covering, as it does, with the annexes, 27 acres of land, and there is of course a greater variety of everything to be seen. Victoria makes a prodigious show in manufactured articles, whilst New South Wales has its superiority in the extent of its natural products. Almost everything seems now to be made in Vic toria, even, it is said, Scotch whiskey and English ales ! but the exhibits of wool, coal, tallow, silver, tin, copper, and gold to some amount, with other...
A GOOD SNAKE YARN. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 20 October 1888
A GOOD SNAKE YARN. Snakes (says the Queanbeyan Age) ap pear to be very numerous even at this early period of the season, and Ave have heard of some large ones having been killed. The latest snake yarn brought to us is as follows: A man, lately engaged in splitting somewhere out in the ranges close to yueanbeya.ii, came across a large snake engaged in the exciting sport of chasing a porcupine round a sapling. The man approached as near as possible, and waited results. It was evident that the entertainment had been going on for some time, as a regular track had been worn round the sapling, and both pur suer and pursued seemed very fatigued, the latter expecially so. Presently the snake, taking advantage of an opportu nity, attempted to seize the porcupine, but instantly found lie had made a mistake, for with the rapidity of lightning the porcupine rolled itself into a ball bristling with needle-like spines. The snake, after viewing this formidable aspect of affairs for a moment or two...
