He finds that tha lateral motion of the river is very much less thania generally assumed, nearly every important bend now existing being represented in practically an identical position in the map of 1770, the changes in the river betweeu that date and the more recent surveys being confined to a few cuts off which occurred at known dates between the surveys. Apart from these the river flows round fche same bends and befcweeju the same islands now as in 1770, its excursions into one side or other of its mean position being in general limited within a very narrow belt. Steps were taken in the 1879 survey, and since, to erect: stone monuments afc frequent intervals, forming permane...

Miss Windley's Panic. I Little Beverley bad always been considered one of the most thriving flections within several surrounding counties, and there had □ever been any cause to think differently. Its flour and planing mills, its rope factory, and its two blaokbmith shops were in constant employment, and as time went on their busi ness grew perceptibly. The two Danes in tne place were noted for their financial standing, ' as solid as the banks of Little Beverley ' being a common saying.

Little Beverley was ou the main hignway between two large com mercial centres, and having excellent ship ping facilities derived the benefits^ thut flowed from so favourable a situation in the natural exchange of trade and commerce. The land throughout the country was rich and productive, and the farmers flourished accordingly. On marke; days they came into the village with wi'gqon loa...

A Gaslight Handicap will be run this evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

A Gaslight Handicap will be run this evening* The Australian Cup is set down for Tuesday next, but notwithstanding its proximity the event has altogether failed to attract tbe attention de voted to races of past years, and were it not that a good deal of curiosity is felt as to bow Carnage will shape, the Cup would bo a very insignificant affair this season. Carnage, very rightly, has held the undisputed honour of being first favourite from the appoarance of the weights, for although I am fully aware tnat one, or even a brace of swallows do not make a summer, or a couple of good performers a champion among equines, it would be madness to overlook such a colt as Carnage, one with such aristocratic lineage as the son of Nordonfeldt and Mercy, and one with his make, shape, and proved staying power. Certainly no three-year-old has ever done in the past what Carnage is to be asked to do on Tuesday— carry 83t. 101b. successfully to the end of a bitterly run two miles and a quarter race— b...
