Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888

Irrigation. BY TL RAMULEF..H Last Saturday, at the invitation of Mr. II. Turner, of Richmond, I visited his es tate on The Terrace. On the way to this spot* I passed through Richmond, and along the road to Enfield and was much impressed with the necessity existing for seeming a water supply for Richmond, ?which, in this respect, is far worse off than Windsor, The present supply is taken from a mere hole at the back of the cetne tcvvs And the close proximity of the latter place to it should i;ot tend to make the water more palatable-consequently lathci than consume it [ should be in clined to partake of something stronger. The toad from this spot to North Rich mond is flirted with farms, all just now looking in splendid condition. The scene as one gets on to the high land is indes cribably beautiful. Away in front lie the mountains, scored here and there by deep gorges an 1 impassable ravines, now al most hidden from view by a thin veil of smoke, arising, no doubt from bush fires in ...

Our Libel Law. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888

Our Libel Law. The case of two men now in confinement in Darlinghurst Gaol, illustratesin a forcible manner the blind vindictiveuessofoneof the many savagely senseless enactments that cumber the Statute lio< k of New South Wales. The men referred to are Mr. J. A. O'Neill, late proprietor and editor of the Queanbeyan Times, and Mr. Hilder, late pro prietor and editor of the Ivempsey Argus. These men, in the course of their bus-tits* as journalists, were found to have offended against the law of libel, anr\r "ahment. for the 01 fence, they were not alot.e "'ed of all their worldly goods, but refused the refuse of the Insolvency Act until they shall have spent 12 months within gaol walls. It is this latter part of their punishment we charac erise as savagely senseless. Both men are i n inciali ruined. In O'Neill's case damages were set down at /400, and to liquidate damages and costs his printing plant and whatever other property he possessed went under the hammer, thenett r...

A Visit to Windsor Observatory. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888

A Visit to Windsor Observatory. Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken. On Monday evening we took advantage of the kind invitation of Mr. J Tebbutt, F. R. A. S., and visited his now famous private observatory on the Peninsula, Windsor. At th$ close of 18G3, Mr. Tebbutt had a small observatory erected on the western side of his residence, though from the year i854occasional astro nomical observationsliad been made there -chiefly for the purpose of self-instru,ction and for providing gratuitous information to the daily newspapers. In 1^74 a cir cular building of pine was erected a few yards South-east of the structure men tioned, whilst in 1879, a substantial ob servatory of brick was erected, a few yards South-west of the old building-hav ing a galvanized-iron roof, revolving on 10 wheels on a circular plate faced with iron. The instruments in use comprise the best procurable, and every conveni ence is niovided for. Amongst the most important ...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 15 December 1888

TOPICS OP THE DAY. Listen to me, and if YOU speak me fair HI tell you news, indiftcrent good to either. Ill a recent lecture, Major Dane was very sat irical at the expense of those persons who are rightly denomiftated globe-trotters. "They goto JSurope,'" said the Major, " are whirled along in :a railway train, stay at a first-class hotel, visit the theatre or ©pera, open the door of a picture gallery ?and loe/k i® , and then come back and say they have done Europe." These are not the Major's ex ?act cordis, but they embody his meaning. A tourist, asth® Maj^r observed, cannot see a country through the windows of a railway carriage, and, as a ru'le, the railway traverses the least interesting portion. Australia knoweth and hath experienced the practices of the globe-lrolter. Mr. Froude .stayed here a few weeks and went home and wrote a b«ok; Lord Bra&sey made an afternoon call, so <to speak, and then told the folk at home what a paradise this is tor the working man...

XIII. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888

XIII. There was nothing miraculous in her appearing it that moment; but it is certain that I was never more startled in my life. So far as I have noticed, genuine surprises are not nearly so common as they are popularly supposed to bo. For my own part, at any rate, I have generally found myself in an attitude to accept whatever happens as some thing to be more or less expected : it is not a conscious premonition, but a kind of instant and instinctive accommodation of one's self to circumstances. It simply means that the man and his environment are essentially in harmony. But now and then there is an abrupt exoeption to this rule, and then every thing seems to break away, and there is a chaos. The news of Henry'g death, profoundly though it affected me, and amazed me too, did not startle me at all. Perhaps it struck too deep for that; perhaps the dream from which I hod just awakened had boon adream of foreboding. Be that as it may, it steadied . oven while it appalled me. But ibis- ....

Riverstone. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888

Riverstone. A rumour was afloat a few days ago that our old boniface, Mr. George Ireland had disposed of the Riverstone Hotel, but from what I have since heard the rumour can be regarded as a groundless one. Another concert in connection with the funds of the Relief Society will be held in the Cosmopolitan Hall to-night. About an hour'a dancing will be indulged in after the concert is over, so it ought to be well attended. The recent rnin caused the Eastern Creek to run strongly. On Sunday afternoon the water was half way up the bank, but it has since abated considerably. Mr. Richards now has ample water to carry on the meat works. Much sympathy was expressed here when it became known that Mr. J. Chas. Fitzpatrick met with a painful accident whilst returning home from here on Saturday night last. On Monday night Teddy Hillyard, a local ped was disqualified for life for suspicious running in a heat in the Carrington Christmas Handicap. This ought to be sufficient warning to those who...

Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) THE HOLIDAYS.-Business in Richmond is now getting at its best, and all the principal stores are being decorated for the festive season. At Messrs.

A large yield of maize is now expected, although the drought prevented the corn being put in until very late. All the water holes are full, and Richmond again possesses a splendid supply of water.

All July it lay almost in sight of the signal station which was established snirif years aj;o for the guidance of whalers. At last a strong south-west wind arose diid drove the ice-pack to sea. The whalers immodi itely took advantage of it to round the Cape and creep into the bay, where they cast anchor, hugging the shore as closely as they dared, and anchored within a cable's length o ' each other. If the wind had continued south-easterly all would have boen well, but in the nidit it shift'-d to the westward, and even north-westward and then the...
