A Case for Police Inquist. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

A Case for Police A terrible tale of immorality was toisljitkh audi ence of some 2000 persons in the Domain yester day, by Mr. George Perry. He said that the landlady of a certain hotel in Woolloomooloo had for some time past advertised that she would provide a comfortable home gratia for girls out of a situation. Of course the inference to ba ? drawn was that she would bo content to accept payment out of future wages. Far different was her real object, for Mr. Perrv rlecInrArl. nmiriaf the indignation of his hearers, that it was to decoy young girls to her house, whore, through the agency of drugged liquor, they were heart lessly ruined. A respectable man whose sister was among the victims of this foul den had, ho said, begged him to take this matter up, and thus he had been led to make inquiries which rovealed the existence of a shocking state of things in a licensed house and under control of the police. For the sake of our common humanity it is to be hoped that the case has been...

A young man named Richard Wilkinson, a car penter of Stourbidge, has just received news that a large property, consisting of milling property to the value of ^25,000 and money to the amount of ^1450, has been bequeathed to him in the north of England by Mr. W. C. Willis. In the 3pring of 1882 Wilkinson was at work in the neighbourhood of Newcastle-on-Tyne, and on the evening of April 5, after finishing work, he went out for a stroll along the lyne side. He was walking by the side of tho river between Wallsund and Newcastle, and saw a gentleman approaching in the opposite direction, who had been seized with giddiness from a fit coming on, and beforo Wilkinson came up he had fallen into the river. The latter lost no time in hasten ing to his rescue, and though ho could not swim ho jumped in after the stranger. The water was not deep at the spot, or it would have gone badly with both of them, for as it was the rescuer lmd a struggle to get his man out. He could no...

Old Scotland [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

Old Scotland. Dr. Edgah, the parish clergyman of Mauchline, has been searching some ancioht records of Scotland, and has reproduced them in the new guise of lectures, under the title of ' Old Church Life in Scotland.' Referring to tho church collections which a hundred years ago were a means of raising money for the poor, Dr. Edgar says : — ' I can furnish statistics which will help to show what was tho measure of Christian liberality in Mauchline a hundred years ago. The number of communicants who partook of the sacrament at Mauchline in 1788 was 1400 ; and it is not improbable that in the church or churchyard there were that day other 1400 worshippers who did not communicate. The total amount collected for the poor on that bright autumn Sabbath of high solemnity was £4 14s lOd, or 1138 pence. For each com municant, therefore, who sat at the Lord's table that day, and was exhorted to extend his charity there was loss than a penny contributed to the poor ; and if there was as many n...

The Clarence Harbour Works. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 December 1886

The Clarence Harbour Works. Some weeks ago Mr. Abigail, referring to a para graph which had appeared in the Evening News, asked the Minister of Works whether a report from Sir John Coode had not been received con demnatory of the very heavy expense for works in progress at the mouth of the Clarence River. Mr. Lyne made the answer customary to him on such occasions, and with which use has now made us all familiar. ? No report has been received from Sir John Coode, so far as lie was aware. It is a remarkable thing that the only occasion on which Mr. Lyne ever did give a ready ans wer to a question was when lie answered one without notice, in order to damage, if he could, Mr. Abigail's political reputation. As his answer on this occasion proved to be quite incor rect, his want of straightforwardness in replying to the inquiry with regard to the Clarence River harbor works might have been ascribed to the warning he had received in the previous case. But as Air. Lyne has become notorious...
