Original Lines. A DREAM OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Original Lines. | A DREAM OP THE SEA. I STOOD by the'ahöre of the spreading sea. And watched the play of the billows wide, As the roving breezes in joyous glee, Far o'er the crests of the foaming tide, " Drove the spray from the bounding waves Into the mouths of the sounding caves. . And I thought if the vast expanse couldjtell Of the secrets old that are hid below uKiA T£j The depths of billows' tireless swell, .¿¿¿1 Beyond the ken of its ebb and flow, The tale might be theme of the endless song "Which its surges for ever and ayejprolong. And I maped on the myriads lost, who rest In the awful folds of the dark blue deep, As a guileless child on its mother's breast, In the coral caves of its bosom sleep. Though none may weep o'er their boundless tomb, The flowers of ocean around them bloom. I wondered if ever their forms would rise, From the depths of the ocean's vast domain. To the sound of a call from the vaster skies, And smile on their mother Earth again ? Should break the bonds...

Commercial. ? ÏHE sales oiûrownlands held during the week showed that there is better demand for landed property. Thelots sub- mitted on Wednesday situate in Sonth Grafton, realised much better prices thin at the previous sale, and the same may be said of those offered at lawrence. C52 acres were taken up at theLands OfflceonThursday by fourapplicants, . the whole of this land is on the south side of tue river. ' Sales of fat bullocks are announced nt £6IO3 per head, and despite the large drafts from northern rivers to the metro- politan market nil through the winter, the supply available ' is still fair, which may be accounted for by the exceedingly ' favourable season. Stores are in fair demand, which must increase as the season advances, as the supply is very limited. Bullocks ore worth about £1 and cows £3. Mixed are also selling well, and and any description of horned stock are easily disposed of. The horse market has remained quiet through the winter, and though superior anima...

"A WHITE ELEPHANT." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

" A "WHITE ELEPHANT." IT is to be feared that the magnificent organ which is being constructed for the Centennial Hall, Sydney, will become, to the inexperienced alder manic body, a veritable white elephant. It is stated that the greatest difficulty in respect to the notori- ous animal, which has since become proverbial for expensive and ill-assigned possessions of every kind, was the feeding of him, not less than the general care required, owing to his delicate nature. So with the organ, the trouble is not so much in preserving it externally as to keen it in order inter- nally by playing upon it. The non-musical souls of the aldermen ia very much exercised over this part of the question-in fact, they find it more difficult to secure an organist to satisfy them, than it was to get the organ itself. It would appear that some negotiation has been going on with the AGENT-GENERAL upon thia point, for at the last meeting of the City Council a cablegram from that gentleman was read. It wa...

AGRICULTURE NEGLECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

AGBICULTTJEE NEGLECTED. PBOFESSOB WALLACE has been giving evidence before the Vegetable Products Commission in Vic- toria. He approved of the system adopted by the Victorian Department of Agriculture, under which practical and scientific training were combined. He advocated a system of country colleges, with a central agricultural university and land endow- ments, to provide a regular income, irrespective of Treasury fluctuations. An agricultural depart- ment should be kept separate from all others. A thoroughly capable administrator and a trained agri- cultural officer would be necessary. Forestry should be added to studies on stock and agriculture, but success would depend upon the selection of officers, who must be thoroughly practical and efficient men. It would take at least twelve months to acquire a knowledge of Victorian climatic and cul- tural peculiarities. Agriculture has been neglected in this country ; but as population increased a greater variety of crops would be rais...

ANOTHER TRICK OF THE GOVERNMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

ANOTHEE TRICK OF THE GOVEENMENTS. THE Macleay Clironiele says "It appears by a telegram from Armidale that a party of surveyors have been at work for some time exploring for a good railway route from the j Tableland to the coast, and they report in favour of one from Guyra, to Coffs Harbour. This line is I about half .way frito Armidale and Glen Innes on the one side, and Kempsey and Grafton on the other. It is stated that Mr. Surveyor Simpson, who headed the party, found no difficulties between the New England railway line at Guyra and the coast and Coffs Harbour. If the Government are in earnest, it will be difficult to find fault, as this line is half way and would to a certain extent suit both the Clarence and the Macleay as soon as some shelter was given to a wharf at Trial Bay. It may also be merely a trick to counteract the Clarence-Glen Innes demand for a railway, by bidding for the sympathy of Armidale and the Macleay. However this may be, and taking the coast railway from ...

THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. THE METROPOLITAN EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

THÉ AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. THE METROPOLITAN EXHIBITION. WE have the schedule of prizes for the Metropoli- tan Exhibition, to be held on 19th September next, before ns. By it we perceive that a suggestion, which emanated, we believe, from the Committee of our local Society, has been to some extent adopted. We allude to the offering of special Government prizes in certain classes. The idea promulgated here has not been fully carried out, but from what has been done doubtless the whole is in a fair way of being BO. It will be remembered that the original proposal embodied the offering of prizes or bonuses for the best cultivated farms, as well as bonuses for the best implements and farm appliances. Of course it would be scarcely possible to carry out the farm prize system in connection with the Metropolitan Society ; but as the principle of State encouragement, in the form of bonus, is admitted to be a correct one, we shall look forward not only to its operation in connection...

Letters to the Editor. The Fisherman's Umbrella. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

I Letters to the Editor. THE Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinion» axpresied by correspondent.. The Fisherman's Umbrella. SIB.-In the Member's address to the electors at Palmer's Island, he stated that Mr. M'Lean (the local officer) spoke in strong terms against a shed being erected on onr Public wharf, and detailing his reasons for so doing. The officer must have been fully aware that there was already a shed on the wharf suitable for our require- ment?, though a private one. But I would like to know how he ascertained that it suited us so well ; he resides so far away, and visits us but seldom. Everybody here knows who told him all about it ; but many would like to know who is thiB officer, and what special powers he possesses that he should prevent the farmers and other tax- payers here from obtaining what is granted to other parts of the district. The manner in which rooney is squandered on officials explains why the Government cannot afford to give us a shed, an...

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. IK a lecture in Sydney last week on thia subject, Mr. Angus Mackay advocated the introduction in Public schools of a system of agricultural education. Although it can hardly be expected that Public school teachers, as a rnls, are capable from prac- tical knowledge of imparting such an edncation to the extent needed, still a great deal might be done by including in the lesson books sound theoretical instruction that would be of immense advantage to those who intended pursuing an agricultural life. Details could not be entered into in such instruction, nor is it desirable that they should be, as the exact system of tillage adapted to one portion of onr colony is unsuited to another, yet the main principles could be treated, as for instance the com- position of soils and their adaptability to the several products, the method of raising and treat- ing products that could be grown in our colony, effects of various descriptions of tillage, &c. It is patent ...

THE GRAFTON-INVE[?]ELL CONNECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

THE GBAFTON-DíYEBELL CONNECTION. OUB ¿ld friend Mr. G. A. CBÜICKSHANK, member for Inverell, ià a straight-goer for the Grafton Inverell connection! Daring the debate upon expenditure in the country, he made a very strong speech in defence of the country districts. From amongst many other strong points we extract a few. " The district of Inverell has received nothing in the shape of national expenditure. The district has received no benefit whatever from the railways, we send onr producé to Grafton, whence it is taken by steamer to Sydney. We receive the greater part of our necessaries of life from Grafton. Last year -though I am in, a very small way of business-1 am not a commercial, man, I merely own a few sheep - I contracted to supply 50 tons of sngar from Grafton to tue district. As far as I am con- cerned you can keep your railway from Sydney to Glen Innes. That railway is merely for the advan 'tage of the city of Sydney ; it is merely for pur- poses of centralization, and is n...

Echoes and Opinions. THE FISHERIES COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Echoes and Opinions. THE FISHERIES COMMISSION. THE report of the Fisheries Commission-not that that particular body is in any way superior for usefulness to many other bodies established under our peculiar system of Government by Commissions and Boards-has just issued its report for 18S8. The report is.little more than a record of failure so far aa the direct work and special duties of the Commission are concerned. A considerable amount of effort was apparently bestowed by the Commis- sion iq an attempt to introduce trout fry into some of the inland waters. Evidently the attempt is thought not to have been successful, as it is to be repeated again during the present year. The Commission is not a paying concern at present, either directly or indirectly, whatever may be the result of its future labours. The expenditure exceeded the income of 1888 by no lesa than £2573 5B lOd. We can scarcely wonder at it when we consider the way the work of the Commission is carried on. That work woul...

ENTRANCE TO THE RICHMOND.-Probably no man knows the Richmond River better than Mr. Edmund Ross, of Ballina. Consequently, when he say8 that the Government cannot carry out Sir John Coode's recommendations in full, it ia best to execute the most, pressing part of them at once, his statement ought to carry the fullest weight. As it is, however, the authorities are doing neither one thing nor another ; and the consequence will be that for the next few years the entrance to the Richmond River will be just as bad as ever. If the Government meant anything bnt promises, we should have seen something done before now. As it is, the river people may well exclaim, iu the words used toward one of the Dukes of Argyle, ''Everfair, ever false."-T. and C. Journal.
