AGRICULTURAL TIT-BITS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 1 December 1899

AGRICULTURAL TIT-BITS. I - ' - The first farm sold by auction in Sydney was situated at Parramatta, and comprised 25 acres. It realised £15, and was purchased by * marine, who received his discharge on cojiiiiion that he would grow wheat, to be sold to the Govern ment. In September, 1796, the Govern ment cropped 1,700 acres, the officers 1,172, aug the settlers 2,547. There was then a chain of íariné extending pearly twenty miles along the Hawkesbury. At a land auction, on the 10th June 1840, at Port Phillip, the price was run up by emulation and competition to such a height, that it realised from £30 to £40 per acre, lying untouched for many years afterwards. The land named was followed by a crash of universal insolvency. Land became unsaleable, whilst live stock of all descriptions fell to nominal prices, money being ex tremely scarce, small promissory notes being the common mediums. Of these, in course of time, many town lots have become of enormous value as likewise some of the ...

FROM OUR EXCHANGES Last year Mr. Jerry Flynn, a former résident of Gulgong, was employed at Bullagreen station, near Gilgandra, weighing wooL One day, during Ch» shearing, his waistcoat, containing a gold watch, chain, and appendage disappeared. The articles were much valued by Mr. Flynn, as they had been be queathed to him by his father, who received them aa a presentation while he was in the police force. He_ naturally concluded that the articles had been stolen, and put the matter in the hands of the police, who, however, failed to find the missing property. Quite re cently Mr. Jones, the owner of Bullagreen, received a letter from an English wool-manufacturing firm, informing^ him that on open ing one of his bales of wootha waistcoat, containing a gold watch, chain, and appendage had been found therein. This, of course, clears np the mystery surrounding the disappearance of the articles, and they are now on their way back to Australia. We are in entire accord with the principle ...
