Select Poetry. AN AUSTRALIAN GIRLS FAREWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
Select Poetry, AN AUSTEALIAN GIBL'S FAKE WELL. I'm leaving thee, my happy native land, Pm leaving thee for yews, perhaps for ever, But still my heart is clinging to thy strand, And stiu repining — most, oh I mutt we sever? , . What though the land t go to rises fair, And glittering like a jewel from the sea, I know it sot; strange scenes will meet me there — Australia, my home, 1 cling to thee. I cling to thee. Each 6ongless bird I love That flutters through the still and sultry air; Each withered 'leaf, that, borne by winds above, . (Joes trewoling up *° heaven like a prayer. Like mow t:pon some stonu-wora rugged etone, Australia, my spirit cleaves to thee; Like branches from the vine, when leaves have grown, My heart in Weeding for its parent tree. Ye*, I am bidding thee a long good-bye, A dearer voice than thine is calling me ; But oft in other home* for thee I'll sigh. Still shall my hope be, oh, to die in thee. What though they plant some waving forest tree Or stately pnlin abo...

SEVEN HILLS. 0*16 of your brethren of tbe Archi- 1 medean lever has pulled it off this time, and baa been called by the people to take his place among tbe 125 to worJt the shin of the State. It is not ne cessa^JitotoptioD any names ; but by giving lfceV'OT5t and last letters of hiB name— ilr. *'Z, C. Fitepatrick, of Windsor — everyone will guess who is atlmla? in. Th« victory is the reward ol what Talmoge calls ' stick-to itive ness,' combined with owmiw, political knowledge, and the power to communi cate it. Perhaps there is also some thing of personal magnetism in it, as Mr. Fitzpatrick is well liked wherever he is (mown. On returning to Windsor on Saturday morning last, after his call to the House, it may be taken for granted that he received more calls to the bar from numerous friends than he liked to respond to. We could do with a few more operators of the Lever in Parliament, and less (missing word ?) « s- c Mr. Matthew Power met with a some what severe accident last Friday. W...
Cumberland Vine Diseases Board. THE BOARD DISSOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
Cumberland Vine Diseases Board. THE BOABD DISSOLVED. The Cumberland Vine Diseases Board has been dissolved. A special meeting of the board waB held yesterday, at which the chairman (Mr. W. Stimson, J. P.) presided, and there were ' also present Messrs. Cox and Howard. The object of the meeting was to have been to arrange for the hearing of appeals against the assessment ; but since the notices had been sent out to the members the chairman had received a letter iroin the department stating that the board would be dissolved, and in view of that the board decided to do toothing in con nection with the matter. Accounts were passed for payment up to date amounting to £25. The chairman moved, — ' That tbe thanks of the board be tendered to the secretary, Mr. Edward Whittaker, for the honest and straightforward way in which he has conducted the business of the board since its formation.' In speaking to the motion he said that if tne Government had allowed the board to keep in office till a...

Sporting. FOOTBALL. British Association.— First Junior Competition. GRANVILLE PIRATE I. v. VOLUNTEER I. A match was played on Saturday week, at Clyde, between the above clubs, and resulted in a win for the Pirates by one goal tonll. The game was fast from start to finish, great interest being taken in the match by the spectators. Gannon *? played splendidly for Pirates, 'whilst Torr, Taylor, and the two Vasellas pot in some rattling work ; for the Volunteers, White and McColloch worked hard, and the fonnerahould have scored. Torr scored the only goal with a hard shot; but both he and Taylor had some hard luck, the ball hitting the bar two or three times. Tbe i'lraves t. meet tne ryrmont b wuis in the semi-final on Saturday (to -day), at Biroh grove Reserve, B&imain, when an exciting game is expected to ensue.

HOLROYD. Fenny Readings Entertainment. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
HOLROYD. Penny Headings Entertainment. * On Tuesday evening, one of those pleasing entertainments which have served to brighten of late social life in the village of Holroyd took the form of a Penny -Beadings Concert in the local Church. The Bev. Jas. Mac arthur presided. The attendance was hardly as large as that seen on previous Mscaaions : but the very cold weather, may have been responsible for that. The programme, which appeared to give ' so end of pleasure to those who put in I an appearance, comprised the following items : ' The Comingof theKingdom,' by the choir : reading, Mr. Layman ; selection, ' Work for each,' the choir ; reading, Mr. Warren ; recitation, by Teddie Miller ; recitation, ' A true Ghost story,' Miss Violet Woodward ; reading, Mrs. Woodward ; selection, ' Welcome, wanderer,' choir ; read ing, Mr. Layman ; recitation, Eniie Collins ; reading, Bev.

Concert. St. Matthew's Church was com fortably filled on Wednesday night last, when a musical entertainment was held in aid of the local Benevolent Society. The energetio secretary of the society (Mrs. Woodward) had arranged a lengthy and varied programme which was successfully carried out. The Bev. J. Macarthur afted as chairman.

The Benevolent Society. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
The Benevolent Society. The Holroyd Benevolent Society is still doing good work, though, owing to what appears to be a change for the better in connection with the fortunes of some of our residents, there is not apparent that pressing need for wide-spread relief which sdyimpreBBod the hearts of the charttaob a few months ago. When the ftitnNpf the foremost workers in this good sphere was at times tried in no small degree, with only the one result of stimulating the then zeal and energy. Now, the purses of all who ean help are opened whenever there iB a call, and legitimate relief alwayB comes to the aid of legitimate necessity. The Clothing Sales are ' run ' on systematic lines ; and they tend to encourage a spirit of some self-reliance among those whom the era of hard times has compelled to accept tbe aid of their more prosperous brethren. As has bees stated before, Mrs. Wood ward and the Bev. Jas. Macarthur in terest themselveszealouslyin connection with thiB line of effort, and s...
MR. PALMER'S PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
MR. PALMER'S PLAN. Not having read the first part of Mr. Palmer's pamphlet very carefully, I am not in a position to judge whether he has made adequate provision against fraud by those engaged in issuing the notes. Assuming that l)e has, there will still De me wmpiauuu tu puuuu extravagance such as we had when the country was borrowing freely. Assum ing that no work is undertaken which is not judicious — and this is a large! order — there will be 9 danger of undue inflation of the currency. The coins and notes in circulation in N.S.W. averages, if my memory is correct, about six million pounds. Assuming that the people make no excessive use of the plan — and such public self . denial is rare — what should we find ? What do we always find when there is plenty of mone^ knocking about, and plenty of buildings and otber public workB going on ? That the value of land would rise till we had another land boom. Land would rise in value till the nriftn nf land would check nrosneritv and poss...
SHERW00D. Progress: What Does it Mean ? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
SHEBWOOD. Progress : What Does it Mean P TO THE EDITOR. Si^, — I recognise the meaning to be the unity of the people of the distijct, to secure the general welfare. Any body of men having formed themselves into a Progress Associotion for their dis trict, should not neglect the meetings, bnt attend regularly to assist in all that' may be brought forward for the: good of one and . all. ' Umty is strength,' and without unity, and dis cussions on the business brought for ward .at . the meetings, we cannot progress; but we must, on the contrary, still keep going on in that easy-going style, oaring for no one outside our own doors so long as they can just live. If ire wish to advance the district, the best way to do so is to attend all meet ings, to debate and discuss any question ^brought forward ; to form a debating -el%®8,*«a-nd enlighten each other on tbe ^'lopios^ot the tiineB, and to look after -the member for tbe district. .

Fancy Freetraders pledging themselves tho obstruct the Freetrade party in its attempt to secure Freetrade ! The difficulty of ngreoiug upon a com mon tariff is the lion in the path of Australian Unity. Ti.ia difficulty will disappear if Mr. lleid succeeds in re ducing our tariff to alcohol, tobacco, and opium, and the- other colonies follow suit as is quite possible and even probable. So that the Federal Party is (or was) as great nn obstacle to Federa tion as to Freetrade. The Federal Party was also in favour of land value taxation, but not vmr.

PENNANT HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
PENNANT HILLS. The fact that Mr. E. J. Black intends from about the 1st September, running a bus between his place and Parra matta, via Carlingfora, is hailed with considerable satisfaction here ; and it is . thought that as the route is more popu Tnna tin aVinliM tin MUn hflftar thjUl hn did at Castle Hill. It would ^ be a big advantage, too, to the. district' if the I Postal Department would have the mailR sent through Parramatta, say, twioe a day, instead of allowing the present un satisfactory state of postal Affairs to oontinue.

BLACKTOWN. Cricket Club Meeting. The Blacktown C.C. held their annual meeting in the Protestant Hall, Black town. The President (Mr. Nioholson) occupied the chair. The report for season 1894-5, which was read by the ir ? CnA /Ma. T o very satisfactory state of amirs. The club took part m 26 matches — winning 12, losing 4, and drawing 9 ; scoring 8252, or an average of 14, as against 2202, or an average of 9. Mr. G. Lalor, with the fine figures of 26-3 for 19 innings takes Mr. C. Tamsett's medal for best batting. The bowling honours fall to that consistent performer, Mr. W. Woods, who bagged 100 wickets at an average of 7'8. The bowling trophy is a donation from Messrs. Nicholson and Bussell. The fielding trophy (sent along by an anonymous aunirer) falls to Mr. F. Wall — and, if ever a trophy was honor ably won, it is this one. This player is the club's wicket-keeper. All through the season he showed splendid form, and at the present time very few better can be found. Totes of thanks...
Our Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
Our Water Supply. The water lately brought into our town from the ' Nepean ' canal is proving a great boon ; and local folk are wondering how they managed to do without it for so long — and how thick in the head thevwere whilst opposing be proud of this trophy of his labours as a public man. The stand-pipe which it is proposed to erect is oertain to prove a convenience, the value of which it will be difficult to over-rate ; and this decided advance along progressive lines must lead to others of a kindred char acter in the near future.
