DISTRICT NEWS. LOCHINVAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
DISTRICT HEWS. [From our Correspondents.] LOGHIFtSUAGS. Fire.— About 2 a.m. on Thursday last a fire broke out at Mr. Joseph Cliffs, near the Railway Station, Lochinvar, and a large shed and contents were totally destroyed. The origin of the fire is not known. Strange to say, a similar fire happened at the same place six months ago, and precisely at the same hour, with similar results. The complimentary banquet to Mr. Charles Keys, which took place at the Lochinvar Hotel on Thurs day night, proved a great success. Lochinvar, 19tn January, 1891.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. POSITION OF THE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. POSITION OF THE GOVERNMENT. Sib, — Upon my return to town this evening my attention was directed to your leading articles of Thursday and Friday last, and I take the earliest opportunity of stating that notwithstanding your opinion that tho present Government is not worthy or continuing in office, I am still convinced that it is in the best interests of the country generally that Sir George Dibbs and his party should at the present juncture bo continued in office. Of course you and I differ upon this score, and I take a pride in so differing from the position taken up by you and others who follow your advice. Bub this I would just observe in passing. Your opinion, and that of newspaper editors generally, is formed mostly upon hearsay and what you read concerning the doings of the Government, the Opposition, and the Labour party. My opinion is formed from what I see and know; and I have never yet given a vote without first considering tho best interests of thos...
ADRIAN'S RELEASE. CHAPTER VII. AN UNWELCOME MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
ADRIAN'S BELE&SE. CHAPTER VII. AN UNWELCOME MEETING. For some weeks after the memorable day on which Adrian had rescued Vida from almost certain death, his mental worry and anxiety were pitiable, though he strove successfully to conceal it. He waa, indeed, in a terribly difficult position. Married secretly, yet engaged to a girl whom he truly loved. He had induced Vida not to speak of what pasfed on the reef of rocks that memorable morning, and she had willingly consented. His re quest surprised her a little; but she would have done far more than that for his sake. ' My life is yours, dear Adrian,' she said, looking up into his face. ' I will do this gladly for you ; it ia not much to ask. You shall tell your mother nnd sisters of our betrothal whenever you think the fit ting time has come. I have allyour love, and that is more than enough for me.' So he was safe for the present. But it can be easily imagined how heavily the burden of his guilty secret pressed upon him. 'How...
Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
Review. the Historical Records of New South Wales. Vol. II. — Grose and Patoraon. Demy octavo. 936 pages. Edited by P. M. Bladen, barristerat law. By Authority. Sydney : Charles Potter, Government Printer. Some time ago, the Government of New South Wales came into possession of a great collection of records relating to the early history of Australian colonisation, and under the title of The History of .New iSoutft, Wales from. t7ie .Records, Mr. G. B. Barton compiled volume I. of a ' history' which it was 'intended Bhould exhaust the supply of documents. Mr. Barton in his volume assimilated the information which the records supplied, and gave it in the form of a continuous narrative, with extracts from the documents Illustrated and elucidated. The plan of treatment was not a conspicuous success. Volume I. of the history is a . most irritating volume. The tale which was to be told might be interesting in one narration, but oft told it became wearisome in the extreme, and Mv. Barton d...
GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
GRETA. Miners' Meeting. — A special general meeting of the Greta miners was held at the Masonic Hall on Thursday afternoon, to hear the report of the special delegates, who were deputed to go round the lodges in the district to explain the position of those men whom the Delegate Board refused to put on the strike roll to receive their pay. Before the report was given an appeal was received from James Murray for his portion of the .£35 granted by the district for distribution among the members of the lodge. The appeal was upheld, and it was decided that Murray receive his portion. At this stage, although a special invitation had been given by the chairman for the Press to be in attendance at the meeting, a motion was moved and seconded for pure cussedness that the press be excluded, when the motion was put to the meeting two hands were held up in favour of it. Mr. W. Jackson and Mr. W. Patrick gave their report with reference to visiting the various lodges. It seems that some of the ...
MERRIWA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
MERRIWA. The weather for the past few weeks has been very changeable, with occasional showers. A very painful accident occurred to Master Charley Bettington, youngest son of Mr. J. B. Bettington, at Brindley Park. While riding at a brisk pace through a gateway the gate swung too, and the little fellow had one leg broken. We learn that under the care of Dr. O'Flanna?sn he ia making good progress to recovery. Mr. Patrick Logan, of Collaroy, died on Friday last, and by hi3 death another link is removed which connected Merriwa of the present with Merriwa of the long past. The deceased came to this district fifty years ago, and some forty years since kept the old Eoae Inn and was a prominent figure upon the turf, his stable being represented by Orlando, Planet, Sanco, Little John, and others. Mr. Logan was a native of Newry, County Down, Ireland, and was near eighty years old at the time ef his death. He leaves a widow and grown family. The local branch of A. J.S.

VACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 20 January 1894
vacy. Sickness in various forms has been very prevalent in our little district for some time past, principally among the young, although we hear occasionally of complaints from the elder ones. No doubt a great deal of the sickness is due to the very oppressive weather. Our school has had to close through measles, and all will be pleased when this epidemic has passed. We have had a few very refreshing showers lately but nothing short of a week's rain would do much good. Crops are looking pretty well, considering the dry season. The potato crop in some parts being excep tionally good, Mr. Clarke having the prolific yield of 110 bags to the acre, Mr. Smith's crop surpassing this with the excc-lltntyield of 118 bags to the acre, being a far heavier crop than Mr. Smith anticipated ; and the yield of fruit in some of our orchards this year has been prolific. But I am sorry to eay that the foxes have made their appearance amongst us, and [ am sure it would be a great boon if a shoot ing pa...
