A Voice from Coolgardie. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

A 'Voice from Coolgardie. / Now that the West Australian gold fields are the Mecca of so many hopes, reliable information con cerning the far-away land must be welcome to those who may be considering the advisableness of seeking theirfoi-tunesin the neighbouring colony. Among the many who have followed the American statesman's advice, packed up their traps and gone west is Mr. Thomas Gray, a former resident of Maitland, who is well known as a practical and experienced miner. A few weeks back we published extracts from a letter written by him to his mother, and we have again been favoured by that lady with a perusal of another epistle from her son. Mr. Gray dates his ' ditty,' as he would style it, from Hanoan's, a settlement 30 miles from Cool gardie, where he and his mates had been since a few daysbeforeChristma3. Ina briefsurvey of the place, which has some pretentions to a town, for it boasts of two public houses and three stores, the writer observes that ' there are about 300 me...

WOODVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

n ? WOODVILLE. vur aeany cnerisnea nope tor the advent of brighter times has once more been ruthlessly cast down, and the last week has only by a hair's breath escaped being a recast of the corresponding one of last year. A few more hours' rain, or a substantial rise in the Hunter, would once more have eaused general devastation. Fortunately the not over flooded state of the Hunter allowed the water in the Paterson, which woke up an almost brimming banker on Wednesday morning last, to get rapidly away, and thus with one or two excep tions it did not overflow ; while the newly-erected dam at Wallalong, though not yet completed, proved sufficient to prevent the inroads of the water from Green Rock. Tressinefield and Strad broke estates however fared badly, the water from the latter place backing up sufficiently over the Paterson Road to suspend traffic. Dunmoro estate also on the other side of the river was subjected to a considerable overflow. The greatest amount of damage, however, ...

CRICKET MATCH.—VISITORS V. COONABABABRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

CRICKET MATCH. — VISITORS V. COONABABABBAN. I This match, which was on the tapis for some time, caused more than the usual amount . of interest to be taken in the game. It was well known that the visitors would place an exception ally strong eleven in the field, having amongst 1 their number such past-masters in the art as D. J. Watt (Ulindah), A. Cox (Coolah), Billy Grimshaw (Mudgee), W. Keogh (Coonamble), A. Kennedy (Coolah), and men of that ilk. The town, nlso, had the full force ot its strength in the field ; but, after a close and exciting match, the visitors won, with 29 runs to spare. Mr. Douglas catered for the occasion, and a first-c'.ass dinner was partaken of in the Mechanics' Institute. This was probably one of Mr. Douglas's best performances in the way of catering for a match, the fact being that a price was paid that enabled tho man to do justice to himself and to the satisfaction of those concerned, The visiting team went to the wickets first, and made a long stand, t...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

A conff.res'ce of delegates f com the Labour electoral Leagues convened ostensibly to take tneasuree to heal the breach between the j Leagues and the Labour members of! Parlia ment, signalised its first meeting on Saturday last by reaffirming in all its rigour a resolu tion passed at a conference in November lust, to which the Labour members take strong exception. The November conference was tanned by some as not being truly represen tative, and care was taken to purge the prenent gathering of objectionable elements. Nevertheless, it hns confirmed the action of its predecessor. The matter in dispute was ' this: it the November conference it. waB de cided to be eHsential for the success of a Par liamentary Labour party that it should give a solid vote on ail questions affecting the Labour platform, the fate of the Ministry, or calculated to establish a monopoly, or to confer privileges on the already privileged classes. And consequently the conference determined that every candidate ...

COONABARABRAN. ME. J. SHELDON'S ADDRESS. On Thursday afternoon a large number of electors and others assembled in the Mechanics' Institute to hear Mr. Job Sheldon's opinions on the political situation. The meeting was a representative one, embracing all shades of political creeds. The speaker was accorded a patient hearing, and was repeatedly applauded. Mr. Thomas Deans, of Madduty, proposed that Mr. R. Neilson, J.P., take the chair. The motion was seconded and carried. Mr. Neilson, on ascending the platform, intro duced tne memoer. Mr. Sheldon, on rising, was received with ap plause. He said that he had not made up his mind whether he would be a candidate for this electorate or not. He intended to speak of his actions in Parliament. When returned to repre sent this constituency he undertook to uphold the labour cause as a protectionist, and had consistently done so. In the Broken Hill troubles he supported the Government, because both Sir Henry Parkes and Mr. Reid announced that if...

Plucky Feat in the Royal Aquarium. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

Plucky Feat in the Royal Aquarium. Miss Annie Luker recently essayed a feat at tbis place of entertainment that probably no other living lady would have attempted. A gentleman on her behalf lately asked during the high diving 5 o'clock exhibition (which hns of late been one of the sensations at the Aquarium) whether in answer to the diver's challenge, a lady would be eligible. The spokesman offered to back the lady to do the feat challenged for from £100 to £500, or for an engage ment similar to the challenger's. Mr. Ritchie, on nemg sent tor, stated that he could not possibly assent to a contest for money, but he would give an engagement similar to the other divers' to any lady who would do like feats, and it was 1 ultimately arranged that the lady, who proved to be Miss Luker, should make tho attempt. AmidBt ! immense applause from a crowded audience, punctually at 5 p.m. the lady was hauled up to the mid-air platform under the roof, from whioh, after quickly surveying the immense...

The Agricultural Department. I On Saturday last a sort of taking of stock « was performed at fche Agricultural College at Richmond, which has now completed a three years' existence. Three thousand acres of land have been set apart for the purposes of the institution, nnd five hundred acres so far have been cultivated. The land iB of a poor character generally, but the application of manures has enabled tbe students to obtain good agricultural repults ; indeed, the exhibi tion of melons, maize, etc., showed visitors on Saturday that there was no absolute truth in the charge against tbe soil of the farm that it was nocsuitaoie ror nignercuicivatiou. ipnre were during the past year fifty-two students in thi institution. We quote from the re port rs to the work done: — The work on the experimental portion of the farm has been devoted chiefly to the testing of the various fertilisers placed upon the market ; the mixing of various fertilisers to form complete manures for different crops a...

The Aeolian Harp. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

The iEolian Harp. The IEolian harp is a musical instrument which is Bat in motion by tho wind. It ia not very well known, but is very curious, aud is supposed to have been invented by Father Kircher, tho Jesuit sa« vant, who lived in the Seventeenth century, and invented many ingenious machines. But tho facft of the spontaneous resonance of certain musical in« struments when exposed to a current of air had struck tbe observers of nature in times of remotesfr antiquity. One of the Talmnds says that tho harp of David sounded when the north wiud blew on it, and it has been suggested that he had an iEolian, as we understand it. The sounding of his harp by a gusfi of wind would be nothing extraordinary if it stooj near his north window, which was probably open for air, and chosen for coolness and shade in tho climatc of Jtidea. ICircher's harp had fifteen strings of catgut, auc[ the force of the wind was deflected to it by various shutters or screens. In later times this was im« proved u...

DISTRICT NEWS. STEWART'S BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondents.] STEWART'S BROOK. we have just experienced a most welcome ram causing the hills to look quite spring-like once more, and making the prospects for the rest of t,-e season, as far as grass is concerned, very hopeful. All are anxious for the blessings to be complete by the weather taking up now. Though we have not the dangers to fear that the residents of Maitland and the surrounding district have, yet as long as we get heavy rain here the Hunter must keep full, and besides any great fall now will put our roads in their winter state, which is anything but desirable. The total rainfall for the past fortnight was tour ineiies torty-six points. Wp heartily wish we could report the prospects of the field as bright as the prospects of the season. Unfortunately we cannot. In fact, since Stewart's Brook has been a recognised goldfield times have never been harder than they are at present. That they may soon improve none can fail to hope, yet many a hea...

An Monster Meteor. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 March 1894

I ? ? ? ? ' An Monster Meteor. An American story of a monster meteor is just to hand. The meteor, according to a skipper who saw it, was as big as five full moons, while his cbiefi offieer makes it one moon larger. They agree as t» everything else concerning the meteor, which, if all they tell about it be true, is the most extraordinary meteor ever let loose to astonish mortals. ' Tha meteor was dead ahead and far up in the heavena when we first saw it,' said Chief office!? Catherine, ' and seemed to be coming straight fop the ship. I thought judgment day had come surej and that some planet was about to strike the earth. It was as big as six full moons, and burned like the sun. Suddenly it shot off to the east followed by a great streak of fire. When I saw it was not going to strike the ship I felt some relief. It frightened me badly, I admit. After going about 50 degrees to - the east it began to take a zigzag course. It darted about the heavens at great speed, just as a bolt of li...

Although this township may not be classed as a Northern one, and the dividing range may some what separate our affinities, still the new Electoral Act has blended us together with our Hunter River friends, and thus we at least are politically one community, and so we can make it a case of ' Hands across the Mountains' (if not the* sea).
