Foor Tom Hellyer. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
FOOT Tom Hellyer, A most painful scene occured at the pening of the Parramatta Licensing Court on Thursda)' morning. Before the Pott's Ilill club case was entered upon Mr. T. H. Hellyer, who was retained for the prosecution, and who was evidently suffering intense bodily pain, rose in his place, and in a voice trembling with emotion said: " Your Worships,-The last time I stood in this Court I had undergone an operation, which was con sul-red successful, an 1 I thaught I was on the high way to recovery. On Tues nay last I was told that the disease had again made its appearance. As this will probably be the last time I shall appear before Your Worships, I shall take this opportunity of tendering my sincere thanks to the bench for the invariable courtesy and indulgent e which has been extended to me during the many years I have been practising here, nearly a quarter of a century. (Mr. Hellyer's emotion here compelled him to s'op for some time). Continuing, lie said: This will be the la...
Marriage of Miss Essie Jenyns. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Marriage of Miss Essie Jenym Wednesday's S'.ene at St. Andrew's Cathedral at the marrhge of Miss ESSIE JENYNS was one that will he long remembered by those who saw it, and, it is not too much to say, not remem bered with pleasure. I'leisure there might have been at the thought that the talented young actress was entering on what she and we all hope will be a happy and prosperous future, but there could have been nothing hut a feeling of regret and disappointment in witnessing a beautiful service grossly disturbed bv a crowd who were indulging in a stupid dramatic display, that had in a few elements to redeem it. Tickets had been issued to the friends of the bnde and bridegroom to the extent of iooo, we believe, yet of the thou sand of prvileged and properly interested re cipients, how many may we r-nsider got seats within the sacred edifice, or to.k part in the ser vice ? Very few. They had to give way to a crowd of people who came to indulge in sight seeing-a crowd that hurrah'd in...
NELSON. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
NELSON. A terrible fire has been raging in the Nets&tt dls» trict for the past fortnight, sweeping over thous ands of acres, leaving nothiftg but black trees and the bare ground, which is a. horrible spectacle fof the inhabitants of the locality. Several hard-work ing and energetic selectors who had their land partly enclosed, and others Completely so, with a good substantial fence, likewise comfortable little homes with flourishing young orchards at their sides, had to stand off and see the property de stroyed by the violence of the uncontrollable fire. Some of them are poor and almost worked them selves ashore in hopes of meeting with future prosperity. Now* how are those people going to fare when they are called up probably, some of them, very shortly, to give an account of their im* provements. Nothing remains ohly a few burnt trees and fragments of fertcirt^ stuff, which is enough to give one the palpitation of the heart OP otherw ise run them to suicide. They may , Sta...
Mr Frank Cotton's Visit. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Mr Frank Cotton's Visit. Seeing that Mr. Frank Cotton, the popular lecturer to the Land Nationalization Association of New South Wales, was on a tour through the country districts, we, some little time ago, though! fit to extend to that gentleman an invitation to visit Windsor. In the course of time we received a reply from Mr. Cotton, intimating that he would be glad to accepf the invitation, and fixing a date for his visit. Accordingly we advertised his lecture through the medium of handbills, and invited the Mayor of Windsor (F. J . Mortley, Esq.) to take the chair. That gentleman, in his capacity as chief magistrate of the town, accepted the invi tation-just as he would no doubt have been equally willing to preside over a public meeting in either the Protection or tire Free Trade interests. His act on this occasion has given rise to some comment from persons who ate opposed to the principles of the theory advocated and ex pounded hy Mf'r. Cotton and his confreres-and they have g...
Among the Tombs. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Among the Tombs. [BY MTJIMU&TOPHELES.] It has bew i my fVi/.e from time in time to ?wander among the tombs of what were lor merly men, women, and children ; and I admit I talu; a pleasure in my sell-imposed task of translating all the vagaries of stone cutter's language.into readable English, as well as to dig down deep into the hearts of those who, benefitting by the death of others, have ntsgler-fcud the ft-w ieet of earth wherein is laid the material which once formed a k>ved and loving being. Some times I have done good-that is, I have ?.succeeded hi shaming tbe living into do:ng the square thing to the dead,-and some times I have failed-for some hearts are too stoney to be softened by the jibes and sneers of even a demon. These hard hearted humans having got a tight hold of the dead one's money, what is it to the world what they do with it-whether they erect a marble surcophagus over the dead one's bones, or simply heap up the earth into ft mound and stick iherein an...
Death of Mr. Joseph Fairs. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Death of Mr. Joseph Fairs. On Sunday last Mr. Joseph Fairs, well-known and highly respected by all who knew him, succumbed in town to an attack of inflammation of the lungs. It is supposed that he had been suffering from this complaint some days before he sought medical as- sistance. The funeral took place on Monday after- noon, moving from the residence of Mr. O'Brien, in Macquarie-street, at 3 o'clock. Mr. T. Colli- son ably conducted the funeral. The pall-bearers were :-Messrs. J. Town, (North Richmond), Thomas Arndell (Caddai), J. J. Fitzpajrick, and T. Moloney (Windsor). About 15 members ofthe local Lodge of Oddfellows, of which order the de- ceased had been a member for upwards of fifteen years, marched three abreast before the hearse, and a large number of friends followed the de- ceased to his last resting-place in the Roman Catholic Cemetery. Father Carroll officiated at the grave. Deceased was only 38 years of age, and leaves a wife and family to mourn the loss they have s...
Riverstone. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Riverstone. &nbsp; The billiard match which was to have come off ofl Saturday last between Con. Hayes and Jack Towe has been postponed until Tuesday next Both parties are sanguine. Hayes" followers think they have what is termed a dead bird" A good deal of wagering has taken place Over the event. The latter is still the favourite. &nbsp; It is Dr. Charlie's intention to leave here shortly after Christmas, he having purchased a house at Lady Robinsoft's Beach, where he ift tends to practice in future. Dr. Charlie will be a &nbsp; great loss to this town. Another concert in connection with the funds of the Relief Society will be held in the Cosmo politan Hall on Saturday, the 22nd instant. Grapes are early this year. Mr. Trantwin, of Grange Farms, informed me that he has a good &nbsp; few bunches of black grapes ripe already. Great things are expected from our local peds in the forthcoming Botany Hartdicap. We have had &nbsp; a good many bids fo...
Sir Henry Visits Braidwood. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
Sir Henry Visits Braidwood. Sir Henry Parkes is about to visit Braidwood. He last visited Braidwood in March, 1864, when he was invited to a banquet attended by over 200 persons. Previous to this he bad been asked to stand for the electorate of Braidwood, but declined, and refused to give his sanction to the proceedings that followed when he was placed in nomination. An avowed candidate in the person of Mr. Herman Milford, son of the late Mr. Justice Milford, was in the field, prose cuted an active canvass, and was returned by a majority of 12 votes.
The Rainfall. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 8 December 1888
The Rainfall. Mr. John Tebbutt, the eminent astrono- mer, of the Peninsula Observatory, has kindly furnished us with the following figures respecting last week's rainfall, &c., which will no doubt be read with much interest: The quantity of rain measured for 24 hours at 9 a.m. yesterday (Friday) and to-day (Saturday) is as follows : November 30, 0.341 inch December 1, 2.496 inch Total 2.837 inches for the 48 hours. The total rainfall for the elapsed portion of the present year is 14.857 inches. The average annual rainfall, as deduced from my 25 years observations, 1863-1887, both included, is 32.676 inches.
An Heroic Act [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888
An Heroic Act During the voyage of the S. S. Rirnu taka from London to Hobart, a lad}' passenger fell overboard in a heavy sea, but was rescued by a fellow-passenger, Frederick Cavill, the well-known English swimmer (now paymaster of the N. S. W. Artillery). Mr. Cavill, who was over 20 minutes in the water ere he and the lady were pickod up by the ship's boats, al ready holds three gold medals from the Royal Humane Society, and it is likely that someone will be called upon at an early date to pin upon his manly breast a fourth. To have deliberately left the safety of a ship in open ocean under such circumstances is one of the most gallant actions on record.
An Opinion On Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888
An Opinion On Victoria. Says Jos. Symes in the LIBERATOR : " The two northern colonies swarm with Republicans; in Victoria a Republican hardly dares show his head. If he opens his mouth, he is hooked down, gagged, persecuted, calumniated, denounced in pulpit and press, and treated to absolute injustice in the law courts. . . . Victoria has no politics, no statesmen ; it is ruled by the purse and old-fashioned cant. Politically speaking, she is like the church at Sardis, dead as a stone, although im pudently pretending to live; and the newspapers keep a perpetual wake around the carcase."

Richmond Volunteers. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888
Richmond Volunteers. TO THE EDITOR. Sin,-As you may bo aware, tlic volun teers had a parade on the Richmond Park last Saturday, which made the town more lively than usual, hut much to the disgust of the cricket fraternity, some of whom were having a scratch match, and who had to stop piay to allow the volunteers to go through their funny business. '1 his, they did not mind, hut w hen they saw Colour llolliorow and another oflieer of the force riding across the cricket pitch on their niomuscs, and cutting it up to such an extent as to render it dangerous to play upon, it made llieni iret their hair out of curl, and no wonder. It is not the first time this thing has occurred, and the sooner it is put a stop to the better. We don't ?want to see, some Saturday in a match, a man being canned home on a shutter, with one eye left behind at the wicket, and all through the foolishness and stupidity of a couple of officers of the volunteer corps. Hoping you will find space to insert this, I a...

In Memoriam. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888
Li Memoriam. And has he gone, my brother, No more to come again. And shall I never hear his voice In pleasant tones recall The stories of our childhood' days ! The Happiest days of all. Nor did I know my love for thee. Till kindly death revealed The golden link that bound us all, And this gross life concealed; For looking on the shadow's here, Before oui mortal sight, We miss the substance plainly seen Alone in spirit light. How many things, my brother, I would I'd done for thee. Before the angels called thee home Their Companionship to share ! But better in that home with them Shall be thy training, boy. And in soul-beauty tho i shalt grow, Free from this world's alloy. Then henceforth let me think of thee As in the angels' school, Growing in lone and wisdom there. Where comes no pain nor dool. Where never tear shall dim thine eye, Nor anything annoy, But all things round thee make thy life A lite of perfect joy. Yet what to us is loss, is gain To the bright home above, Where every...

An Every-day Requisite—The BoyPersuader. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888
An Every-day Eequisite-The Boy Persuader. The latest work of science is a beautiful instrument called the Boy-persuader. It is a great success, and no respectable family should be without one for every boy in the household. It is a combina tion machine, about as large as a double breasted sardine-box, and can be placed in a boy's pocket. It contains a small electric battery, a bell, a sort of clock work concern, and a lovely piece of good strong stirrup-leather about 2 feet long. This instrument can be put on a boy in the morning when he goes out to play, the clockwork being wound up, and set for 12 o'clock, the time the boy promised to be home for lunch. Then he goes about his business, killing cats, breaking windows, or setting fire to houses, or any other innocent amusement he is partial to. At twelve o'clock, however, the clock hand touches an affair called the du wodelum, which loosens another concern called the codingus, the bell rings, and the leather strap begins to kick the...
Land Nationalization. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888
Land Nationalization. (to THli EDITOR. SIR,-A friend has sent me a clipping of a recent issue of the RICHMOND AND WINDSOR GAZETTE-a letter by Mr. William Walker, which 1 would earnestly recommend to the careful perusal of all who are infected with the absurd craze for Land Nationalization. With the style of a master of his subject, he touches upon points, and leaves them after im pressing upon them the marks of his genius. It will be my work to tread reverently behind in his footsteps, and expatiate on the excellence of his ideas. Here is a gem :-" If landholders only were taxed, the rest of the community rich merchants, bankers, commercial, in dustrial, and other classes would go Scot free." I have met people who would dis pute this self-evident proposition, so it will, therefore, be as well to explain that no one wants land but a farmer or a gardener. It is only the poor merchant that requires land on which to b lild his warehouse or home-the rich man doesn't build his on land at ...
