Beaconsfield and the Jewish History. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 20 October 1888

Beaconsfield and tie Jewish History. Loud Beaconsfield, evidently by way of appeal to his own race, time wrote of Christ's place in the history of the world :— ' Perhaps, too, in this enlightened are, as his mind expand! and lie takes a comprehensive view of the period of progress, the pupil of Moses may ask himself whether all the' princes of the House of David had done so much for the Jews as flat Prince who was crucified on Calvarv ? Had it not been for him the Jens would have been comparatively unknown, or known only as a high oriental caste which had lost its country. Has not he made their history the most famous in the world ? Has He not hnng up .their laws in every temple? Has He not vindicated all their wrongs ? Has not He avenged the victory of Titus and conquered the Caesars ? What successor did they anticipate from their Messiah ? The wildest dreams of their Rabbis have been far exceeded. Has not Jesus conquered Europe and changed its name into Christendom ? All countries...

Laurieton. A correspondent writing from this quarter, under date Octoher 9, says :— We have gone mad on boat racing here lately. A short time ago a race for five pounds aside came off at Queen's Lake, between J. Hanlcn, of Lnurieton, and H. Marshall, of New Holla, distance three miles, with a turn. Hanlen led to the stake, but could not get his boat round very quickly and Marshall passed him and led all the way home. I he race was rowsd hard from start to finish, and was won by Marshall by about twenty or thirty yards. This race led to another bctwoen J. Leonard, juu., and M. Hogan, the course on this occasion being from the mouth of. Watson Taylor Lake to the Laurieton mill wharf, and the distance was supposed to be rather more than three miles. The race was rowed in canvas outriggers ; the stakes being £5 aside, and the championship of Camden Haven. Both scullers had their supporters, and a few pounds changed hands over the event.

Rawdon Island. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 20 October 1888

Ea-wdoa Island. (from our own correspondent.) Ao\ix I have to chronicle one of those terrible events that ever ami anon come crashing into our midst, spreading consternation and grief on every hand. Death has once more swooped down, claim ing a victim iu the person of William H. Kendall, a young mau of but 24 years of age. As you will doubtless be placed in possession of full particulars of his death, so far as has been ascertained, through tlip p.nrnnpr'ft iiinnptif. it. ia nnn»(*MBarv fm- mn tr\ repeat them ; but I would say that, in.this case, as in the case of poor McKell, the most profound sympathy and sorrow have been evoked. William Kendall was a native of the Island, but shortly after the death of his father, which occurred about 16 years since, he accompanied his widowed mother and his brothers to New Zealand. After spending some few yean there, Mrs. Kendall returned to this district, bringing two of her sons with her, leaving the other two (William being one) with relative...

Mtumiag River Brevities. Mb. B. H. Robinson's store narrowly escaped destruction by fire on Monday night. A kerosene lamp set fire to some of the goods in the store, but the alarm was given by Mr. Hinton, and the flames were extinguished before much damage was done. Mr. F. M. Baker, when driving to Cundletown in company with others, got thrown but of his vehicle, -but escaped unhurt, although his clothes were much torn. Col. Wells, of the Roads Department, ha&rired on tlie Manning. The clock at the hospital has been erected, but it fails to satisfy expectations— at least of many of the subscribers. John See intends sending his steamers to Wing ham when the navigation of the river is properly opened, which has not been done as yet. Applications for permission to substitute improvements either wholly or partly in lieu of fencing should be carefully and accurately prepared, as they are liable to be objected to by holders of adjoining lands, on the grounds that the boundaries ar...

Mr. Johu HibWd, of Port Macquarie, collected £5 19s Od on behalf of the Kempsey hospital. The conspiracy case, which caused 80 much excitement here aunie time ago, is to be revived.

Proceedings were then commenced against Mr. C. Sutherland, J.P., for false imprisonment, or the charges which sur rounded an implication (or conspiracy.

Correction. TO THE EDITOR OF THE PORT MACQUARIE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 October 1888

Gorroction. TO THE KMITdR Or THIS POUT MACOUARIE KKWS. Sir, — Kindly allow me space to contradict the report of your Hollands Plains correspondent relat ing to the death of my brother, David M elver, in your insue of the 20th inst. Your correspondent 'sea been sadly misinformed, and is in error in stating that he died in ' tcrriblo agony' from ' cancer.' The cause of death waa exhaustion. caused by an extensive stipulating tumor in the neck, and for which Dr. Casement had been treat ing him for some time before his death, but was unable to couquer the disease. Instead of dying in 'terrible agony,' he suffered little or no pain for some weeks before, nor at the time of death, and died very quietly. As the report of your corres pondent may cause pain to many of my brother's absent friends, your insertion of this correction will oblige. — Yours faithfully, C1IAS. McIVER. Glen Eak, October 22. Mr. Hayter, the Victorian Government Statist, has issued Part I of his Year Book, which among ...

Tlinre were%everal publicans present, and Mr. Best appeared on their behalf. He said that the licenses of two of the applicants, Mr. N. Davis and Mr. J. McDonnough, expired almost immediately, after which, if they were found selling liquor, proceedings would be taken by the police. lie did not think the applicants should bs allowed to suffer through the absence of the Bench. He would ask Mr. Hales to make an order to the police not to prosecute them for selling after their license had expired.

Wauchope. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 27 October 1888

Wftuchope. (fuom oub correspondent.') Since thi last fall of rain we have been enjoying beautifully fine weather, which is most desirable at present. The weeds, which sprung up rapidly during the rain, are keep-, ing the fanners vigorously employed in eradi cating them v^Aiiy -more wet weather would cause destrucnpM anioncst the low-lvine crops, as aftifaSpatter rains, a considerable area had tb^ re|lanted. The brickmaker which started here some short time ago has just completed the burn ing of his first kiln of bricks. They are a splendid sample, and by the appearance, of them they seem quite equal tj the Sydney made article. I must confess that I am no judge of the quality of a brick, but several practical gentlemen have expressed this opinion. I wish Mr. Fvans all the success heXleserves, and that shortly he will be able to announce to the public generally that he -is prepared to supply bricks as cheaply if not more so than they can be procured from Sydney. We had a public meetin...
