Wardell. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) July 10. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 22 July 1876

Wardell. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) July 10. ATTER raining heavily on Priday night, all Saturday, and very threatening on Sunday morning-the sun appears to day in his strength of rays, causing all nature to look more cheer ful. 'The Platypus left on Eriday night; also the Atlanta, the rest are still detained bar bound In fact, eveiy one of them could have got out on Eriday, after the Platypus, if they wished to attempt it, but fear of the Insurance Agent cowed the brave and willing mariners. The moderate sum of £4000 would render the Bar navigable at all seasons. Thus,-a breakwater at the Northern Creek, and its waters, brought into the Fishery Creek, the space between the ?twoi^;-bêmg-i-Httle\':m^ré than a mile of level swamp, a canal could be . easily cut between them ; then all their waters passed into the main channel of the river, and would rather ©pen than impede its navigation. Sickness among young children has been prevalent here lately, and three cases proved fatal. ' The co...

A Cruel Hoax. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 22 July 1876

A Cruel Hoax. A GOOD story reaches us from Milan. A young nobleman of that city, of marriageable age, and master of a fortune of 10,000 francs a year, not long ago come to the conclusion that it was time for him to look out for a wife. He advertised his want in a Milanese newspaper, requesting that every answer to the advertisement might be accompanied by the portrait of the lady who replied. A collateral result of this notice was that two or three of the best photographic artists of the city had more work on their hands than they could attend to. The direct result was sixty-five letters, with as many fair maidenly countenances as would furnish a good sized album. The answers were in some cases accompanied by parental certificates, setting forth in touching language the charms and vir tues of the daughters. Embarrassed by a choice of such unexpected variety, and desirous to gratify that sense of honour which even the serious nature of his quest could not repress, the young man repli...

Disastrous Flood on the Clarence. GRAFTON. Friday, July 21. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 22 July 1876

Disastrous Flood on the Clarence. GRAFTON. Friday, July 21. We have just experienced one of the highest floods ever known here, being 2 feet higher than '63 ; the town being completely submerged. The rain commenced on this   night week, and came down in torrents, and blowing a hurricane till Sunday morning,   at 8 o'clock; when the river broke over the banks, and in two hours was all up the streets, it being from 10 to 12 feet deep in Prince-street and on Sunday night boats could be pulled about the streets. Sauerbier and Kenning were drowned oppo site Duggan's public house. Ki Koon, Loewenthal, Becke, Henderson and Mans field, are heavy losers, and other business people lost more or less. James and Dean saved their goods. Fisher's wharf is swept away, and E. W. Chapman lost a cargo of flour. The loss, in Grafton alone is esti mated at over £60,000.. Mr. Girard lost his house, horses, and barns. He came into town on Wednesday, and reported that a farmer nam...

THE CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 5 August 1876

THE CBICKET MATOH. IT appears that since our last issue, the Clarence River Cricketers have re-considered ?J their decision to postone the match between themselves and the Richmond River ! Cricketers for a month, in consequence of the recent floods, and have telegramed to the Honorary Secretary (Mr.W. 0. HARMAN), to the effect that they will leave Grafton for the Richmond River, by coach, and will probably arrive at Lismore, on to-morrow (Sunday). Should this intention be carried out, we haye been inf ormed that the wickets will be pitched at half-past Ten for Eleven o'clock on Monday next. A cold collation will be provided on the ground on the days of the match, while our visitors will be en tertained at a public dinner on Tuesday evening. On Monday evening, the Sons of Temperance will give a public ball, one half of the net proceeds of which will be devoted to the Cricket dub Eunds, while various other amusements will no doubt be improvised for the occasion. We are sorry to say, t...

THE CLARENCE FLOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 5 August 1876

TJIE CLABENCE FLOOD. LATER Grafton papers to hand contain ad ditional-particulars relative to the late îloods, while from various parts of the Colony comes the same sad tale of losses ex perienced during the late storm. It is, how ever, gratifying to find that being of provi dent habits, , most of the settlers will be able to tide over the disasters which have befallen them; while those who have nothing to. fall back upon; will, no doubt, meet with substantial assistance and »ympathy from their more fortunate fellow colonists. For all this, however, there will be many cases which no ordinary amount of assistance will Teach-cases in which the labor of years has been swept away in a moment ; and while respectf illly tendering our condolences we feel assured, that if required, the resi dents of this river will gladly do all in their power to lessen the losses of their neighbors. It has been stated, that out of evil comes good, and the sad results of the late flood will show the inhabit...

To the Editor of the "Northern Star." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 5 August 1876

To.the Editor of the "Northern Star." ? SIB,-In my last letter I stated, that the present charges by Government railways, on heavy goods being three halfpence per ton per mile, and the distance by the proposed railway to Unka, about twenty-three miles, the provable difference in the total expense of sending gooda between any part of this river and the Clarence, would be 2s lld. The threepence per bag of maize, paid on the . Clarence for drogage, being additional to the 2s freight to Sydney ; but let the distance be 24 miles, as your correspondents say, then it is only 3s, and this being the only railway charge we are warranted to expect, then I ask the producers on this river to pause, and consider, before they condem this Iluka railway scheme. To the farmers, I say, you have been Waiting, some five,, some ten, and some probably fifteen years, have you ever been able to send your maize to market within 38 per ton-of the Clarence freights, and with equal safety and speed ? Yet this i...

Woodburn. (FBOM OUR COBEESPOJNDENT.) August 1st. A PUBLIC MEETING was Held at Swan Bay, i (Elbow), on Friday last, July 28th, to discuss the projposed Woodburn and Iluka Ballway. I was more than surprised in arriving, to see such a large niimbèr of people present, and found upon inquiry that the whole were in favour of the object for which the meeting was held. However, I will give a brief outline of j the proceedings, and am glad to say, I was j never present at a more orderly or unanimous I assemblage. Mr. Thos.

The Championship of the Thames. THE welcome news of thé result of this race* . winch, came to hand yesterday afternoon, has set at rest the minds of thousands of people in Australia, and especially those of New Sput a, Wales, who have from the first shown .mere interest perhaps in this contest than any that has taken place oven in our own waters. As soon as it became known in town that the Suez mail was signalised otf Glenelg, the first sentence in everybody's mouth was-" Have you heard the result of the race ?" and from an early . hour in the morning small knots of acquatie and other sporting men could be seen round the Telegraph Office, and near Punch's Hotel, eagerly anticipating that the next moment the \ secret would be told. It was not, however unt .l. 1 about 2*15 p.m. that the telegram carno through ! and when it was posted up outside this office, many persons came in to say " that thé news is too good to be true," aud it seemed almost in credible that a man born and bred in...

I would not , trouble you were the different writers upon the subject all governed by a spirit of kindli ness and honesty ; but such is not the case. I must first take exception to a portion of the letter of your own Correspondent. First-As to dictating to Mr. T. Bawden. . Now, Mr. Bawden was simply asked to oppose this scheme. If Mr. Bawden, dressed in a little brief authority, chooses to be so impatient as to take a simple request, qr even a petition, as a dictation, we may well ask, what is the use of having a representative at all ? Another correspondent will not recognize, as "a respectable man, one who has been a bullock driver or a shanty keeper, and yet there are many persons now . holding high places in this colony, wko have served in both positions. Possibly these are terms oaly known to gentlemen, ...

To the Editor of the "Northern Star." Sra,-Tour issue of the 29th July contained com munications from correspondents in favour of a line of railway from "Woodburn to Iluka, "and as turn about is fair play, you will no doubt publish opinions on the other Bide. First of all, I will premise that both your corres pondents, "Fairplay" and "Henry Williams," honestly believe that the construction of the railway will benefit the Richmond ; and in doing-, so, would recommend them to leave, out in any future pro ductions, such paragraphs as the fourth in. " Fair plays " letter. I for one, am not going to try either tb lead or mislead those who think different to myself.

THE " NORTHERN STAR." LISMORE, AUGUST 5, 1876. MRS. M. GERARD. WE regret to have to announce the death of the above lady, which took place at her residence, Lismore House, at 10 o'clock on Sunday evening last. The deceased lady was 70 years of age, and having suffered from severe illness during the last few weeks the sad event was not wholly unex- pected ; while she leaves a large circle of friends and family to monrn their loss. We believe Mrs. GERARD had been resident in the district for some sixteen years, having in the year 1862 taken up the Lismore Run formerly owned by Mr. W. WILTON ; and until prevented by failing health, had always taken a very earnest and active part in all matters appertaining to the   progress of this town and district and the welfare of the residents there??, ??? the large attendance at the funeral on Tuesday afternoon last, showed that these efforts had been duly appreciated, and at the same time evinced the warm sympathy felt by all classe...
