NATIONAL DEBT OP GBEAT BEITAIN.

During the same period the expenditure of the country has fallen from £2 3s Cd per head to £1 17s; while during 20 years the money spent on education had bsen increased by £4,000,000.

THE NEW ADMIRAI AND LADY SCOTT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

THE IÎEW ADMIRAI AND LADY SCOTT. THE new Admiral of the Australian Station (LOUD CHARLES SCOTT, C.B.) commanded the Bacchante on the occasion when the sons of the PRINCE OP WALES visited Australia, they being midshipmen on board that ship. Lord Scott is brother to the DUKE OF BUCCLEUCH ; but his wife is a Melbourne lady, daughter of Mr. CHARLES BYAN, the well known stock and station agent of that city. Lord Scott met the lady on the occasion of the Bacchante's visit and subsequently returning to the colony, took her away as his bride. Thia fact will doubtless cause somewhat of a flutter amongst Sydney society, lest Admiralty house and grounds should not be so frequently open as they have been under Mrs. FAIRFAX'S reign-it being thought that the flagship may be more frequently at Melbourne than at Sydney. LADY SCOTT very possibly may prefer to be with her friends in Melbourne society. This, however, does not always follow. A few years in the old country serves very much to break the ...

Political and Social Letter. (From our Special Correspondent.) THE COLONIAL TREASURER'S ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Political and Social Letter. ! (.From our Special Correspondent.! THE COLONIAL TEEASUBEB'S ACTION. THIS week the, Government were within an ace of being turned out of office, and it was through the I TBEASUREE that they were brought into danger, i Mr. M'MlLLAX took it into his head to depart from the usual custom followed in connection with the introduction of the Estimates, and decided to make his Financial Statement after the Estimates had been passed, instead of before they had been sub- mitted for consideration. He was warned that if he adhered to that determination he would bring himself and his party into trouble ; but instead of taking heed of the warning, as any other man in his position would have done; he made up his mind to defy it. He doubtless thought that in conse- quence of the Land Bill not having passed through the Upper House, that many of the Opposition members would not sanction any move that would involve a political crisis and that therefore he would be safe in...

EXPENDITURE IN COUNTRY DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

EXPENDITURE IN COUNTRY DISTRICTS. IN the debate wherein the MINISTER FOR WOKKS delivered the absurdity that the public expenditure in country districts was greater than in Sydney j and the suburbs. Mr. O. O. DANGAB, one of the ; representatives for our sister district, the Macleay, said " The return used by the Minister classed the electorates of the Manning, Macleay, Clarence, Grafton, aud Richmond as North Coast districts. Statisticts gave the population of these electorates at G5,159. In no portion of the colony were the natural advantages so little availed of by successive Governments. In proportion to the population there had been an expenditure-including the city of Grafton during 25 years-of only £23 Os Od per head, while in the city of Sydney and suburbs it amounted to £27 12s lld. He considered that every other part of the colony, without a single exception, had been better treated than the North Coast districts. The expenditure in these districts had been much less than in...

FEMALE PUPILS AND ARITHMETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

FEMALE PUPILS AND ARITHMETIC. Ax attempt was recently made to induce one of the School Boards in England to set the Education Department in motion, with a view to relieve female pupils from learning arithmetic, beyond simple proportion. It waa suggested that few women in after life require arithmetical knowledge beyond that point ; while on the other hand, all girls would be the better if their school days were devoted to other more profitable instruction. This idea appears to be worth consideration. Very much time is undoubtedly devoted to instructing both boys and girls in subjects of no utility to them in after life. That is to say if we omit the funda- mental of all elementary instruction grounding in application to study. The instruction given in schools is certainly " for the few, much more than for the many." and consequently the many are not advanced in what will help them in after life. What is wanted here for the many is practical and manual instruction in useful occupatio...

THE BYRON BAY PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

THE BYRON BAY PROPOSAL. THE Lismore Chronicle states that ''Messrs. KEELE and M'CABE are taking soundings, and five men are engaged testing the stone, for the proposed breakwater at Byron Bay." Certainly this business is being pushed on with all rapidity, a rapidity not usual in respect to works of the utmost importance. When a demand is made for expenditure in the public interest, it is usual to put off the public until the money Í3 actually voted by Parliament, and many other subsequent dilatory measures taken. In this case, however, it would appear as if the private interest of a few land-grabbers were really of more importance than those of the thousands of persons who are not members of Parliament, or in some way connected with them. We did hear that one of these land-grabbers went into Parliament especially to serve his own purpose, and we have now undoubted confirmatory proof of the statement from the manner in which this Byron Bay scheme is being engineered. How it comes tha...

The Irish Land Question. Proposed New Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

The Irish Land Question. Proposed Kew Lan il Bill. LONDON, August 14.-The Government proposal to deal with the Irish land question has been fore-shadowed. The bill, which will probably be introduced next session, will, it is stated, provide for the resumption of the whole of the western district of Ireland, including the mountainous localities where the population is congested together with the grazing lands where population is sparse. The resumption of this land will enable the Government to distribute the popu- lation more equitably on the soil by moving the tenants in the congested and barren districts to the rich and sparsely-peopled parts now devoted to grazing, from which the tenants in many places have been excluded. The small holdings will be consolidated and re-divided into average-sized farms, which will be resold to the tenants on favorable terms. The Government do not intend to apply this principle to the eastern portion of Ireland, except where the special conditions ex...

Case of Elopement. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Case of Elopement. j SOCIAL gossip turns a good deal just now (writes the Loudon correspondent of an Irish contemporary) on the romance of a gallant young constable and the Admiral's daughter. The policeman had been almost permanently | on a " fixed point" in the Belgravian district. Among the many ladies, young and old, whom it was his daily duty to escort over the crossings was a pretty and accomplished girl whose father figures in the Admirals' pension list. She was facinated by the stalwart boy in blue, it seems, and showed her sentiment in a manner which touched his heart with a returned passion. Half a year ago some friends surprised her in tender discourse with the " copper." Their suspicions were roused by the familiarity ; they watched and found that the girl not only haunted her lover when on duty, but that she met him when off duty and spent hours in his company. They reasoned with her, and threatened to tell her father unless she promised to end the unequal acquaintance....

Claims of North Coast Districts. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Claims of North Coast Districts. Ix a letter to the Daily Telegraph, a corres- pondent signing " Graf tonia " says-" The claims of the North Coast districts-by which I mean the districts on the north coast from the Macleay to the Queensland border-have since the institution of respon- sible government received very small atten- tion at the hands of the Government in the matter of important public works. . . , It may be taken, I think, as granted that the port of the Clarence, by reason of its location, its natural facilities and its extent, must in the future be the principal port of these North Coast districts, and from that point must radiate the lines of traffic which will be conducted thence by railway, road, or canal to the north, south, or west. . . . In consideration of the whole of these important works it would be well that the grand committee should have all these pro- posals before them, as upon the decision arrived at, the future welfare of these dis- tricts depends.

Just Rights Neglected. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Just Rights Neglected. SIE.-Will you kindly allow me through the medium of your very excellent paper to draw - the attention of your Road Superintendent to the disgraceful state of the road from here to Blick's River., It is by no means my intention to accuse any ¿ one particularly of neglect and wastefnl .expenditure of public money, as I am entirely - ignorant with whom the fault lies; but I can most ?"assuredly Btate from personal experience, having been obliged to make a hasty journey from Armidale to here within this last week, that there is no comparison between the Armidale end of the road and the Grafton one, the latter being all but impassable, and a disgrace to our civilisa- tion ; while on the former I could travel at the : rate of six miles an hour, driving a lady in a buggy, with a pair of horses, and I have yet to -4--«o:~ - i-u:..-i A£ learn that there is any more traffic on this end of the line than the other, or worse weather, for such a state of things.

The Yamba Public Wharf. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

The Yamba Public Wharf. SIB.-I wish, to bring under your notice the dis- graceful state of the Government wharf is in, what with old fish boxes, railway sleepers, rails, chains, ¡cc, and large holes having been hastened by the heavy rains, I must say, in its present state, it is dangerous to passengers leaving the river boats at night. I might also state that some of the piles are eaten away, and I should not be a bit surprised to see some collapse. A lamp should be placed on the wharf, to be lit during the dark nights. Such would be a great benefit to passengers by the river steamers arriving late, and to the public at large. I hope the Member's attention was directed to the wharf, so that he will bring the matter before the proper department. Tamba, 19 th August. ELECTOR.

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Letters to the Editor. THE Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions «pressed by correspondents. Mr. M'Farlane at Brushgrove. SIB.-A, few issues back you kindly inserted a letter signed by me "Agitate," relating to the j neglected state of this district, notably the danger- ous state of Brushgrove wharf and the want of a ! shed at Cowper. Since then I saw two men ' engaged on the drogher Perseverance partially fall through the open planks of the Brushgrove wharf. I wonder both had not broken their legs. And as to Cowper shed, it is a long standing piece of neglect. By your report of Mr. M'Farlane'a meeting, I find that he indulged in some pleasantries at my expense : called me "ignorant," censured me for using a non deplume, and " that if my name had been attached, it would have added but little to its importance." I am only following the rule laid down by custom. Some people like to see their names in print, but I, being of a retiring nature, do not. If it had not been ...

Lancashire beat Surrey in the cricket match. The weather is affecting harvest operations. The Government Tithes Bill has been withdrawn. Some newspapers urge that a severe punishment should be meted to the defaulters of the tithe, who number 10,000, including nine Mayors. Smith, the pugilist, is willing to make a match with Slavin, of Australia, for £500 or £1000. Present Governor of Western Australia, remains, pending decision respecting Responsible Govern- ment.

Ulmarra. MONDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

I Ulmarra. Í MONDAY EVENING. River Bank.-I notice improvements to a very weak part of our river bank, namely at Corndale, where fresh and flood always make sad inroads ; Mr. Miller .is busily engaged in slabbing and sloping the bank. It is indeed alarming the amount of ground that has broken away just about there within the last ten years, and it is to be hoped that the present operations will cheek further collapse. It wonld be a good thing if something were done to raise the bank at Lower Ulmarra, but I think so much has been said upon that point that it is almost useless saying any more. Our Member.-Mr. M'Farlane has not been able to meet his Ulmarra constituents this time, and I hear many regrets thereat. We have a good deal to ask for, and, moreover, are very anxious to have something to thank him for. Other parts of the electorate, such as Maclean, icc, and even Brushgrove are able to profess gratitude, but that very happy state is denied us, and, as yet, we have nothing to be...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN MONDAY. Drainage.-Why the drainage works in John street, which are now in progress, should have come in for such a large amount of adverse criticism is not easy to determine. Some there are who, hav- ing espoused the cause of the Argyle-street scheme, merely because it was originally recommended by Mr. Swindell's (who by the way selected this scheme out of several others which were good and practic- able ones) will not allow that any other possesses even a remote claim to recognition ; while others, who can boast neither of a practical nor a theoreti- cal knowledge of the subject, and are actuated more by personal feeling than aught else, enter the opposition ranks out of sheer " cussedness." With such as these it is useless to argue ; their minds are firmly made up. and nothing will move them. But those of the ratepayers who have had an oppor- tunity of seeing for themselves whether the present scheme ia likely to prove a success, and are open to reason, wil...
