Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, MONDAY MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, MONDAY MOUSING. General.-Since my last nothing worthy of record has transpired. Bnsiness generally, although it shows signs of a great improvement in the near f utnre, has not assumed as brisk an aspect as might have been expected, taking into consideration the crushing season began some time back. This is traceable to some extent to the fact of the C.S.B. Company's Harwood machinery not working so harmoniously as conld be wished. However, this will only cause a temporary delay in the undoubted prosperity which awaits the district. Maclean itself is taking rapid progressive strides. New buildings are going up, new businesses are being opened , and we may confidently expect that when the Appropriation Bill becomes law, there will be such an influx of population into the town (to meet the demands for labour in constructing sev- eral new buildings that have been passed by the Government) as has not been experienced for some time. The establishment of a punt ove...

Ulmarra. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

I Ulmarra. I MONDAY. THE weather keeps fine about here, though there has been plenty of rain on the lower river. Where ever the flood waters have receded, farming opera- tions are in full sway. Yesterday evening we were treated to a small thunderstorm, but its range was very slight. The Perry.-People here were very glad to observe in our Member's notifications that the matter of a ferry between Southgate and Ulmarra had been referred to the local officer for report, and we are DOW awaiting the result of that report. There is no doubt but that the ferry is required, and wonld be of immense benefit to both townships. Rinking.-The Ulmarra contest which is to take place on Wednesday week (11th September) in Grafton, is creating considerable stir amongst the rinking portion of .the community ; and I believe there will be a very good muster. The principal event of the night will be a contest for the Ulmarra Trophy and bangle, the winner receiving the trophy, and having the pleasure of ban...

The First Flogging.—A Horrible Sight. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

The First Flogging.-A Horrible Sight. THE man Haines, sentenced to seven years' impris- onment, with three floggings, for an assault on a little girl, underwent the first flogging on Friday at Pentridge Gaol. The galvanic battery was brought in, and shortly afterwards the culprit, under the escort of two warders, was presented, On the mask being taken off the ruffian was seen to be a young man about 23 years of age, stoutly built and muscular. With apparent indifference he waa triced up, and, with an air of bravado, he com- menced to count the strokes of the lash as they were administered by the flagellator, hut at the third stroke he exclaimed, " Oh my God !" At the ninth he cried so much that it appeared as though the medical officer would have to raise his hand to stay any further punishment. At the fifteenth stroke the culprit was merely able to say, " Oh, God 1" On being released he nearly fainted, and hung to the triangles for a few moments to recover himself. Church Of Englan...

Progress Association. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Progress Association. THE monthly meeting of the Orara and Armidale Road Progress Association was held on Saturday. Correspondence waa read from the Member for the district re classification of the Armidale road, also with regard to the road from the Police Station Crossing to the Orara Bridge, whioh was deemed highly satisfactory. A letter was read from the local roads officer, in reply to one sent asking for some improvements to be made at the fording of Sandy Creek ; but as it was not favour- able it was resolved to bring the matter under the notice of Mr. See when he visited the locality. It was resolved to write Mr. Statham, asking if any improvements were to be made to the road on each aide of the Kangaroo Creek bridge. Resolved that the Minister for Lands be asked to grant a portion of Reserve No. 886, in the parish of Bardsley, for a cemetery. Resolved that application be made to the Minister for Works for a culvert to be made over Sandy Creek, on the road from Toothill to t...

In the United States. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

In the United States. A SYDNEY citizen writes from New York to the Daily Telegraph-"I visited a large number of the principal cities in the States.' Doubtless America has many attractions and great natural advantages ; nevertheless I am somewhat disap- pointed. The people are wrapped up in their own country, given to exaggeration and jealous of England. I don't speak of them in this way because they are protectionists, for protection is dying a natural death in the States. Four additional territories have just been added to the States, and these contain eo many free-trade or democratic votes that the existing Government hardly know how to shape their course. Believe me, protection has run things up to a pitch which the nation can't stand much longer. If the big manufacturers here could only sell out to foreign capitalists to-morrow, free-trade would come in with a rush. I say sell out to foreign capitalists because their own people won't touch them. I am puzzled to know how farmers ...

REVIVAL OF BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

REVIVAL OF BUSINESS. THESE ia a prospect of a rovival of business in tho city, and it cannot be denied that there is need for such a revival. All the storekeepers, both whole- sale and retail, deolare that the present winter haB been the worst for business they have ever known. And I can easily believe them. But two or three of them, at least, have no reason to complain.. For example, Hordern's (of Haymarket) is always full. 60 when you will to that establishment, yon will always find at least a couple of hundred customers therein. The firm must be coining money. But there are at least a soore of smaller shops which I am certain will have to close up before the end of the year. As for the industrial trades in general, they are in a vory bad state, and there are hundreds of honest mechanics and labor- ers out of employment.

THE EXISTENCE OF THE DEVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

THE EXISTENCE OF THE DEVIL; MB. VABLEY, the Evangelist, is still running his religious show to pretty good audiences, but so far as I can judge, most of his hearers consist of people who have obtained grace. He has had a little controversy in one of the papers on the existence of the devil. Mr. Varley has no donbt whatever that the devil of orthodoxy really exists. But I doubt if many people in Sydney are as confi- dent as he is on the subject. For my part, I do not i bother my head about the theological devil. T ?' have a greater horror of tho concreto personal demons that I encounter in the world. Inter- spersed with a great deal of nonsense, Mr. Varley talks some sound sense. His lectures to men aro most timely. Sensuality is one of the great curses of this city, and any man who fights that has my heartiest sympathy, no matter what his opinions, on controverted theological dogmas may bo.

SUPPORTING THE DOCK LABOURERS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

STJPPOBTING THE DOCK LABOTJEEBS. FOLLOWING the example of the wharf labourera of Brisbane, the wharf labourers of Sydney have sent a large donation to the dock labourers now on strike in London. The amount they have sent is £500. This is a very generous contribution, and it is specially noteworthy because it proves that amongst the working men in the British dominions there exists a strong bond of sympathy. This is the kind of federation I like to see. It beats the political sentiment right out of the field. It ie expected that other labour organisations will follow the example of the wharf labourers. Here I may say that the strike of the Dock labourers has shed a great deal of additional light on the condition of the working classes in London. Although their work is very labourions, none of them, it would seem, could save sufficient out of their earnings to enable them to sustain themselves for a single fortnight when they were «ut of employment. Some of the Free- traders here affi...

Lecture by Major Dane. Rambles Among the Ruins of the Seven Churches of Asia. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

! Lecture by Major Dane. Rambles Amerns the Ruins of the Seven Churches of Asia.. MAJOB DAITE gare a lecture on the above interesting subject under the auspices of the "Wesleyan Conference. There was a large audience. Major Dane said that there were times when people could lay aside all doubts and look with the eyes wide open on things as they were demonstrated to be, and there were times when they might stand silent and look on things and reason. In this frame of mind he stepped ashore one beautiful afternoon on an island some 50 miles from the coast of Asia Minor. Near by was a small Greek village of fishermen, all poor, and a short distance off a small white monastery, to which he bent his steps, and passed through and round and about it, and then underneath it, for there was a cave, and in the cave the everburning light. This was the island of Patmos, where John I had written, " I, John, was at Patmos, and I was in the spirit on the Lord's Day, and I i heard behind me a great vo...
