DISTRICT NEWS. PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894

DISTBIOT HEWS. [FaoM our Correspondents.] PATERSOft. : Several nice showers of rain have fallen during the week-, 52 points were registered last night, and our district hae freshened up and looks wonderfully well after the timely rain. The flying foxes, which have been keeping very quiet this season, have now commenced their ravages on the ripening fruit, to the great detri ment and annoyauce of our orchardists. Some ex ceedingly fine tomatoes and fruits have been ex hibited by the Paterson fruitgrowers this year, and there is a great abundance ot all kinds of fruit and vegetables, as our well stocked Union buildings on Tuesday mornings can testify. - Mr. W. S. Bradford, manager of our Commercial Bank has been granted a month's leave of absence, which his impaired state of health rendered a neces sity. It is probable ho will take a trip to New Zealand during his holiday, and we trust he will return at the end of the month in full health and vigour. The Vacy Public School does not re...

RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894

RAYMOND TERRACE. The Eev. John Carrol, who has been assistant priest to the Bev. Father Nealon for the past twelve months, has been appointed to the parish of Dungog as curate to Eev. Father Flynn. Father Carrol was a very popular priest here, and very much beloved amongst his co-religionists. He gave a valedictory sermon on Sunday last, the congre gation, I am told, being unusually large. The people were greatly moved during his discourse, and there was hardly a dry eye amongst those present. The rev. gentleman was always to be seen moving about amongst his people in the district, and was an able coadjutor to the esteemed senior clergyman, the Bev. T. A. Nealon. Business people complain very much of the dulness of the times and the scarcity of the needial. The Gloucester Gazette, which has been published here daring the past ten years, has ceased publica tion. The proprietor was a heavy loser in the great flood, and was met with other adverse circum stances in which he has had to s...

SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894

SINGLETON. The Weather. — A pleasant change in the weather took place at a very early hour this morn ing, when Beveral nico showers of rain fell, and another light shower fell about midday. The day remained cloudy and cool. The Jerry's Plains Boad. — We are pleased to note in travelling over tbe Jerry's jeiavna Jioatt, via. Thorley's to-day, that this important highway has been greatly improved recently. Probably, nearly 20 out of the 22 miles of road (including the Broke and Bulga portions) are gravelled ; most of the culverts ai-e in excellent order, and those requiring to be repaired are now being attended to. Con sidering the limited amount voted for this road, it is highly creditable to the responsible authorities tljj.t they have expended their funds in such a judicious and praiseworthy manner.

The Victoria Bridge. PUBLIC MEETING IN WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894

The Victoria Bridge. PUBLIC MEETING IM WEST KSiMTL&ND. Yesterday evening a public meeting at the in habitants of West Maitland, called by the Mayor in anBwer to a requisition was held in the Council Chamber, Town Hal), for the purpose of taking steps to impress upon the Minister of Works the urgency of the immediate erection of a suitable bridge to replace the present insecure structure known as the Victoria Bridge. The meeting was not a large one, which was probably owing to a number of other popular gatherings taking place at tbe same hour, but most of the principal busi ness houses were represented. The Mayor (Jlr. H. Crothers) occupied the chair. The llATOBin opening the proceedings said he re-, gretted that there was not a larger meeting. It was a very important matter, the building of a new bridge between East and West Maitland. They all knew as well as he did, perhaps better, that the pre- ' sent ttructure was in a very dilapidated state. The Mayor of East Maitland (M...

THE POSITION OF THE GOVEENMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894

TTTW ?POHTTTOTI OF THE GOVERNMENT. 'By the close voting on Mr. Reid's amend ment to the Addre88-in-Reply, 67 to 66, we apprehend the situation is created which ?? 'friends of the constitution desired to Bee created. Ministers are technically trium phant, but we venture to think they .will scarcely dare to. attempt pro ceeding with their programme. For all practical purposes they have been defeated. They will now occupy with ignominy and disgrace a position upon which they might have conferred some little dignity had they after meditation in the receBs recognised the signifi cance of the voting on December 7. They preferred to use their offices as a means of conciliating the electorate which must at no distant date be appealed to. But we apprehend they will be allowed to do no more than take credit for good intentions : a majority of one is really no majority. How *tne question of supply is to be approached we- wait to hear. Sir George Dibba talked of paying the Civil servants «nd ta...

MEETING AT EAST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 January 1894

E9EETIMG AT EAST SVJAlTLftND. A public meeting was held in the Mechanics' Institute, East Maitland, last evening for the pur pose of protesting against the erection of a super structure upon the present piers of the Victoria Bridge, and urging upon the Government that a completely new and an iron bridge is absolutely necessary. The Mayor (Mr. G. T. Chambers) pre sided over an enthusiastic meeting of about thirty persons. The Mator said he would like to have seen a much larger meeting, but it wbb like the people of East Maitland, who were the first to grumble if through inattention to their wants results were not as they should be, but they were not the ones to come forward themselves and put their shoulders to the wheel. He then read the requisition convening the meeting. He said that was the purpose of the meeting that night. The matter had resolved itself into this: whether they were to have, an iron bridge with floodgates at a cost of £4000 which would take eighteen months to com...

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [By Zaea..] My pleasant visit to Katoomba terminated with a delightful picnic at the top of the Leura falls. A party of fourteen assembled at Cambawarra, Mrs. Wilfred Docker's summer residence, about 3.30, and wo all walked to the Meeting of the Waters, and then followed the stream's winding course until we arrived at the head of the fall.
