THE SOUTHERN GOLD-FIELDS ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 17 February 1877

THE SOUTHERN GOLD-FIELDS ELECTION. Despite one or two rumours that were afloat soon after it was made public that E. A. Baker, Esq., had accepted the vacant ? port folio of the Minister for Lands, we have no ' „ ? authentic accounts to hand that that gentle man will meet with any opposition for his old constituency, and we are certainly of the opinion, were the feeling in other portions of the large and scattered Southern Gold-fields electorate as unanimous as that expressed at the meeting held here on Wednesday night last, any opposition that could be brought forward just now would be utterly without effect. At that meeting, W. R. Watt, Esq.,' occupying the chair, the principal speakers dwelt favourably upon the honorable gen tleman's lengthy Parliamentary career, and , warmly praising him for the manner in which he had always watched over the interests of his constituents, hopes being indulged in that his practical knowledge of the subject would tend to the remedying of some of th...

CHINESE NEW YEAR'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 17 February 1877

CHINESE NEW YEAR'S DAY. As we have, in another column, made some remarks anent the festival of our Celestial neighbors, whereby weoreforced to put up with what comes to ham), or rather mouth, for the time being, the following article from the Western Independent made not be inap propriate : — ThiR day (Tuesday) is being commemorated by millions of people with feasting and re joicing, and it iB the anniversary of a day that has been so observed for more than S000 I years by the came nation, It is the New Year's Day of tho ChineRP. The occasion is not inapt to bring under the notice of our readers a few particulars of this, probably, the oldest civilized nation on earth. The study of Chinese history is by no moans popn lar, and little or no interest has been exerted to make it so, hence a few bare and slender facts comprise the suns total of all that is generally known respecting China and the Chinese. That China possesses a wonderful wall, a remarkable canal and supplies the chief pa...

THE NEW MINISTER FOR LANDS AND ALLOTMENTS ON GOLD-FIELDS. (To the Editor of the Grenfell Record.) [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 17 February 1877

THE' NEW MINISTER FOR LANDS AND ALLOTMENTS ON GOLD-FIELDS. (To the Editor of the Grenfell Record.) Mb, Editor, — The Wise King hassaid, ' There ia a time for all things ; and Shakespeare says that '? Justice whirls in equal measure there fore, I shall make no apology for troubling you with this letter. As Mr. Baker is now the Minister for Lands, the time has arrived for the ill-used mining population to speak ; they need hot tell their grievances to the new Minis ter, for no man in the colony knows them so well ; but does the country at large know them ? Do members of Parliament know them ? Why, they don't even know which part of the colony a mining town is in. I have been asked by merchants and members, in Sydney, if Gulgong were one, and Grenfell fifteen miles from them, or some other equally absurd question. There fore, Mr. Editor, as these great and influential people are ignorant of our very existence, how could it be expected that they would give us help, or sympathise with ou...

GRENFELL ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 17 February 1877

GRENFELL ANNUAL RACES. When compared with the eleven nomina tions only for the big prizes offered in the handicaps by the Burrangong Turf Club, the seven entries for each of our local 'big events' show very favourably, and has proved that the prognostications of some that the meet ing would be an unsuccessful ODe are not likely to be realised. Amongst the nomina tions we notice those of former visitors — West Australian, Arbitrator, and Aristocrat, all of whom have creditably acquitted them selves ere now, and who will doubtless meet here to fight their battles o'er again, while in Saladin we have a stranger that would have run very forward in the A.J.C. Derby but for that unfortunate accident with the trooper's horse. From present appearances, therefore, we have every reason to anticipate a far more successful meeting than that of last year, and we sincerely trust that it will be so in a pecuniary sense, in order that the Stewards may recoup themselves the loss at the last meeting....

District Intelligence. COWRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 17 February 1877

District Intelligence. COWRA. ( From ou,r Correspondent. ) ( A lecture on ' Havelock ' was to have been delivered to-night by Canon Smith, of Bathurst, who is en route to Young ; but Cowra, with that appreciation of talent or anything else out of the old stereotyped groove in which it drags its slow length along as of yore, did not put in an appearance. Now it Btrikes me that if the venerable canon were a single gentleman, in stead of a steady old Benedict, that the ladies would have laid aside toothache and other little inconveniences, and have graced the lecture with their presence. And the male portion of the community, caring nothing for such inspira tion aa might be drawn from the life of Have lock, of glorious memory, wero appreciative in a corresponding degree. No lecture was deli vered, 'Tell it not in Gath !' because there were only some nine persons present.

GRENFELL TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 17 February 1877

GRENFELL TIME. ! Upon a former occasion we briefly alluded to the erratic nature, under their owners' hands, of the various clocks of the town, and urged the want of some method whereby ' we could -secure a standard time. As the matter now stands we feel positive, from the many reiterated complaints made, that the ?want of some authentic public timekeeper is more than ever felt. Not only is our neighbour's clock some half hour faster or slower, .as the case may be, than our own, but hardly twoof the local chronometers agree, and the inconvenience, not to say annoyance, arising from the circumstance is severely felt. Taking the Post-office clock, which presuma bly records the correct Sydney time, for a guide, but which, by the way, is kept as far beyond the range of ordinary vision as is possible, we can rarely find a second one in town to correspond therewith ; it is most eccentric in its vagaiies, and although a watch may be set by it to-day, the chances are that there will be some...

POCKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 24 February 1877

POCKETS. ' . (New York Times.) A London magistrate lately told a woman .? whose pocket had been picked, that if women would change the position and plan of their pockets, they would not so frequently suffer from the depredations of light-fingered thieves. This was a judicial opinion of remarkable acute ness and exceptional value, in so far as it indi cated the true reason why women ave the favourite prey of pickpockets. Still, ic is one thing to point out any evil that deserves to be remedied, and quite another to designate the remedy* The court which denounced the pre - sent female substitute for a pocket did not sug gest any practicable improvement upon it, and, indeed, it is doubtful if any man who is not a professional scientific person is fully capable of dealing with so difficult a question. Man is marsupial, and herein he i3 broadly distinguished from woman. Nature has pro vided him with pockets in his trousers, his waistcoat, and his coat. The number is not always the same, ...

OUR LOCAL COURT OF QUARTER SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 24 February 1877

OUR LOCAL COURT OF QUARTER SESSIONS. After much correspondence and consider able exertion, our energetic district mpmber, James Watson, Esq., managed to secure the ' promise of the Government that a Court of Quarter Sessions should be established in Grenfell, and as a more commodious lock-up .was required for a temporary gaol, it was stated that the erection should be proceeded with at once, the proclamation of the Court having been established to be gazetted within the next few days. Tenders have been called for the new building, which were to be received up to the 13th instant, and that was considered a step in the right direction ; but the proclamation has not yet appeared, and we are, therefore, inclined to believe the asser tion that has been made, that the new lock-up is merely given as a sop to stop onr mouths. Under these circumstances, any ' clamour '' that might be made could not in any way be termed ' unreasonable,' and it is urgently necessary that the Government — one s...
