In the first place; Count Kalnoky insisted on the absolute ne cessity. for .maintaining in its integrity tho Treaty of Berlin. The mission -of ' General.

The Australian Eleven. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

Tlic Australian Eleven. Majoh Wardill, manager . of the Melbourne Cricket Club's Australian Eleven, returned to Melbourne by the Pateena on Friday afternoon. Major Wardill (we learn from the Argus) ascribes the partial failure of the team to the wet weather, which caused the first 10 matches to be played on wet wickets, to wnicn tney were unaccus tomed. The younger members of the team, under these circumstances, lost their wickcts so often before they had time to get set that their skill and nerves suffered, and they were unable to do justice to themselves later on in the tour. The opiuion which has been given expression to iu Melbourne, that the team lost form owing to the liberal hospitality of which they were the recipients, is (Major Wardill says) a wholly mistaken one. The team, he bears witness, was the most self restrained set of sportsmen that he ever travelled with, and several of them are teetotalers. On the subject of the dissension said to have existed in the team Major ...

A Dear Title. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

A Dear Title. Yet another has been made a R.C.M.G. It is Dr. Buller, who has been steadily aiming at those letters for many years, and has again proved the virtue of resolute persevenance, and the truth that everything comes to those who can wait. Dr. Buller is a lawyer and an expert Maori scholar, and for many years he practised in the Native Land Court. He is an ornithologist, aud has been an able historian of -New Zealand birds. He was appointed a commissioner to the Exhibition, and he gave £5000 to the Imperial Institute. He paid high for his alphabetical distinction. , ? A lawyer addressing a jury on a caso proved strong circumstantial ovidenoe, repeated often ' that ' ninety-nine guilty men should escape rathor than that one innocent man should suffer,' The judge, in ohnrging the jury, told them tho 'ninety -nine guilty had long einco , osoapod. ?

It exhibits three eolumns resting upon a blue-stone pedestal, wnicn, in us turn, is amxea to a base of blue granite inlaid with marble. Each column supports an urn, upon which is depicted a scroll and some drapery. The choice and sub stantial memorial bears the inscription, ' Here lies Henry Kendall, Poet : born 18th April, 1841 ; died 1st August, 1882. Some of those who loved and admired him have in grateful remem brance of his genius built this monument above his ashes/' Beneath this writing appear the words of Shelley— ' Awake him not !

Returning from Queensland to the Adelaide and Port Darwin telegraph line at Charlotte Waters Station, another start was made north easterly iu the endeavour to cross the desert, but owing to the drought no water was to be found, consequently on several occasions they had to strike across to known wat...

That letter was written with a very different obiect from that of this letter. For the Maiquis of Normanby having stated publicly that by a FATAL MISTAKE all the public buildings of Queensland had been placed at the southern extremity ot the colony, thereby throwing an unmerited reflection on its founders.

William Bench, Mattorson, Kemp, and Neilson, tho scullers, and : Charley Hutchens. the English sprint runner, are passengers. Tho Australian party did not find the trip quite as profitable as they expected. They .say that Beach was fairly beaten twice during tho worst of the Gaudaur match, and thero is no doubt that it was nothing | but tho presence of mind of Spencer in calling Beach's attention to tho exhausted condition of Gaudaur that saved tho championship from being wrested from Australia. Tho party aro confident that Hanlan will not follow to Australia, and that ho did not really want another match. Beach adheres .to his deter mination net to row any more in England. ?

Our Roads, or Energy v. Apathy. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

Our Roads, or Energy v. Apathy. There cannot possibly bo two reasonable opinions about the fuck that in the matter of tho formation of roads the central portion of the Richmond River Electorate has been most shumofully neglected, and that the time lias arrived when some steps should be taken by the residents therein to bring pressure to bear on the Government, through our members, to endeavour to remedy the existing most unsatisfactory condition of our public thoroughfares. Neither can there be any reasonable doubt that the existing system of. expenditure in this direction fails to meet the demands of the district, or the probable intention of tho Department, inasmuch as too much latitude is likely to.be given to individual interest or caprice on the part of those whose sole duty it should be to properly represent the Government and the people. This opens up a big question, which may inculpato those in whom our trust is placed, and certainly opens up too many avenues to discussion t...

Our Unemployed. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

Oar Unemployed. What to do with our unemployed seems to bo a problem rather more difficult of solution to our statesmen than we think it should be. If a private demand is not equal to the supply — a point we certainly cannot admit looking at tho question from a Richmond River labour view, where labour is very scarce — there can be no doubt but that it is the duty of the State to employ such unemployed on recuperative public works. There is an universal demand for such, tho material and money is, or can bo made, available at once, and it appears to lack only tho administrative ability to carry tho scheme out to a successful issue. What shall we say of feeding and lodging some hundreds of men when we are paying something like £300,000 per annum for vegetables grown outside our own boundaries. Victoria's bill, alone, for the first seven months of the year is £130,000. and yet there are hundreds of thousands of acres of land in this colony on which the potatoes, onions, and green vegeta...
