Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 1 October 1881

Richmond. TOWN MATTERS.-There can be no ques- tion about the way this little town is striking oat. Whether it is the agreeable change of j tiie weather, and the lovely emerald green that I grce s the eye at every turn, or the "rim i appearance of our water-tables and side-walks j as compared with the past is not certain. Certain it is, however, that the " loveliest village" as a certain orator called it, awhile ago-that we're marching onward, and not any too soon. It is true we are awfully short of excitement, and for only that the ubiquit i ons " Scavenger" is applying his moral besom ! in real v orkniaulike style, we should become j as cit ad ; n 1 gone as those few unsympathetic ' souls who cannot appreciate sense and J humour, b-cause it emanates frxu such a I hnmb.e person as a sweeper-but suck a sweeper! Well really, " who is he," has become " table talk" not only at the pubs, but :n the home circle ; and instead of paraiyz I ing the movements of society, the appetite has been...

I TUE entry of the Great Fluter into Rich- mond on Sunday last, with his caravans put Conk, or Sjnger, or Cole, or Cooper and Bai'ey, forthat matter completely in the shade. Class mammalia was well represented. ' I Ve heard of fellers "salting" mullock, or I a pan o' stuff in order to sell out ; but this is I a siew disease "salting «'heat''-as the millers j. say. Query: do mil lei s never "salt?" ! Really, it's too bad. Burial grounds were - never intended by a paternal government for grasing paddocks. It's hard to tell which have the thickest bides-the horses or their masters. I Says the letter writer anent the concert, : " My friend, Mr. So-and-so." it won't wash j my noble scribbler, the foot note explains the j r..after-quite so!

PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 1 October 1881

PINS. Cum grano salis. Sic (k) ! why h.-.ng 'em, they're all sic (k) ! Ot' course the Hawkesbury Chronicle has got its bard, and why shouldn't it ? When the Feg-ars-us of the Bulletin sets himself up as j a corrector of misguided rhymsters--of which he evidently thinks I am one-why does he not be just a trifle careful. Wherefore " Astndeus," sweet Pegasus (Bull-finch, I j ¡should say)? If my sin oí commission is wrong, surely your sin of omission is not ; right. But your allusion to "milking the! cow" is not quite apropos, and one can't help thinking that you have heard the yarn some- where, of two fellows in prison, one who stole a watch, and the other who stole a cow--you < probably know the rest. In future, when I want to put rhyme in the mouths of my subjects I shall apply to you for an acre ur two.

TEE Baajkesuttrif Charade. AND F ARMEES' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1881. SEEIXG^ that just nove, the farmers of the colony have hosts of friends who are con- stantly parading the great and manifold difficulties they, as a class, have to contend with, it may not be out of place in any one to enquire what these difficulties really are ; and also, to shew them as they really exist in order that they may be overcome, i he many friends who have rallied, round the cultivators of the soil are not mere mush- room street-corner-agitators, but men who certainly ought to be relied on. In Parlia- ment there are several-notably the lion. member for the Nepean, Mr. T. R. Smith, and Mr. W. Clarke the hon. member for Orange ; these two gentlemen alone are a j power in themselves, and constitute a no meau championship for the oppressed farmer. Then the tillers of the soil are well represented by a very 1 irge section of the Press-not ouly in the metropolitan c milty, but spread far and wide ove...

RICHMOND POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30. (Before Messrs. J. E. Onus, lt. H. Ducker, and J. Callaghan, J.'s.P.) John Heffernan was charged with using obscene language on the night of Sunday, the 18th ultimo.

Aniougst those present was Mrs. Elder, widow ot the late Kev.
