Barrington. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

Barrington. | A correspondent writing of the re | cent floods says : — The Barrington far mers are situate in a valley, surroun | ded by high hills, in fact situated as it were within a high ampitheatre. It will thert-fore be easily understood what must have been the disastrous effects of such a sudden volume of water, some phenomenon of -nature, such as a waterspout descending upon them. For it seems as though one vast volume of water, 8ft. in height, and extending for a mile in width, rushed down upon them like a gigantic ava lanche, sweeping, crops, stock, and'all obstructions which it met in its mighty impetus down the valley. It iB esti mated that the water rose to a height of 30ft or 40ft., rising 8ft at one time, within the space of 15 minutes, and not until the water receded could any estimate be formed of the disastrous consequences. The fences had all been swept away, and portions of the surface soil containing crops of pota toes, maize, etc., had been carried sea wards, a...

New Australia. _ A LETTER FROM THE SET TLEMENT. ? : 'Bhute Force Triumphant.' A telegram from Albury states that a further letter from Mr. A Brittle bank, formerly a resident of Albury, and one of the pioneers of the ' New Australia ' settlement, fully confirms nil that has previously appeared upon the subject tit the deplorable failure of . the project and the pitiablo con dition of the great majority of those who voyaged over on the initial trip of the Royal Tar. Mr. Brittlebank gives a . graphic description of the incidents of the rebellion and the expulsions, and in the most unmeasured terms denoun « :b the management aa incapable, un just, and brutally selfish. He says that rmmb-ra of men — with wives and families, who criticised the management were given one hour's notice to- quit the settlement, and that Westwood, who is possessed of Bome capital in Queensland, bas determined to test the question of the power of the associa tion to expel him without refunding a portion of hiB...

COOLGARDIE PROSPECTING PARTIES. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

COOLGARDIE PROSPECTING PARTIES. To the Editor. Sir, — Now that Coolgardie is all the rage, a mining friend writing from Sydney and speaking of the Wonga Wonga mine, at Wangat, which he, says is a good one, advises the .pros pecting of the surrounding localities. The Clarence and other town9 in the colony are sending prospecting parties to Coolgardie, and it is noticed and re marked on tbe mines that the further away inland gold reefs are found, the quicker, .the attention of capitalists seem to be drawn to them. I can in stance a few of many great swindles for largo amounts, such as the Wiiite Rock, List Call, Bear Hill, &c. Here we have at our doors and for some 70 or 80 miles north and westerly an auriferous belt of gold bearing country. The Wonga Wonga mine is within this area and a true fissure load ; the ore is A 1 quality ; and it only re quires some capital to open it up by a tunnel, to prove a most valuable pro perty. The probabilities are that if worked to a depth-i...

ARISTOCRACY. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 March 1894

ARISTOCRACY. To the Editor. Sir, — Could you allow me a small space in one of your columis of the Ohronicle. I wish to thank th -se per sons who so liberally supported us in the late Novel Cricket Match, but those persons who termed themselves to be a little above those who take an | interest, in our local Hrisnitnl— tbs blacked cricketers — I cannot thank. It seems to me that there are two classes of people in this town ; one is termed the poor class, the other the aristocratic, tlwt' :.s, those who think themselves to be a little above the poor class, because they may have , a bigger pocket to put their hand in, but at the same timo they are afraid to spon'l a paltry sixpence for fear some body might I'enefit by it. Now, ptr hapa, had. this cricket match lieen on the Victoria Park, Ihave no doubt it would have been well patronised, as they could hot be compelled to pay. Some said that the admission fee was tio low, as they didn't like giving Cd only. The admission was fixed low so...

Holiday Times. Easter tizno is once again upon us, and 'the thoughts of most people will turn to holiday making. There is 'no disputing the fact that neither bad timos, nor wet weather, nor scarcity of cash, can wholly daunt our Australian youth whon thore is a prospect of a holiday. Como what may, he wiH and must have his outing. And probably it is characteristic of tho country, tho climate, and tho race, that wo should thus wish to cast care aside occasion ally, while wo meet together in social festivities. Of ono thing wo ' are pretty certain, viz.: that there's no country in the world where holidays are more numorous or more heartily enjoyed. Tho land is in its youth, and there is a buoyancy and vigour about the people, that makes them do with a will all that they take in hand. This seems to have impressed Miss Shaw, of the London 'Times,' for in an address recently delivered before the Boyal Colonial Institute Bho treats of this feature nf the Australian char acter in the follo...
