Do We Want Protection? [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
Do We Want Protection ? [TO THE EDITOR. Sir-Considering that at the present time potatoes are £\o ios a ton, and butter 2/3 per lb, I ask the above question. It strikes me very forcibly that unless our ports were open, wc would be paying double the price for both commodoties. Some people will say : " But produce is much cheaper in Protectionist Victoria." Then, I ask, why are our farmers crying out for Protection if this is the case-for under those circumstances, it cannot bene fit them, Yours &c., PATRIOT.
Russian Provincial Towns. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
Russian Provincial Towns. The Russian provincial towns are seats of stagnation, where the only thing developed is the art of cheating, beginning with the Government, and ending with one's own wife and children. There is no intellectual life whatever, and as a result ail intelligent man who lives there soon grows apathetic and indifferent, and takes to card-playing and drink. Fancy a town like Smolensk, boasting 100,000 inhabitants, and that has one newspaper the size of a child's pocket handkerchief. The project of the person in question, who is very far from being a fool, can only he considered in the light ot' an extinguisher to be put on education and intellectual culture, as a new and ingenious means to drive soicmv oat of ijo land, aad discourage pursuit ol it.
That Census. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
That Census. [TO THE EDITOR.] Sir-In your last issue, a par.-uniph appears with reference to a census taken in George-strret of the unmarried persons who passed along between the hours o£ 7.30 and g, the numbers given being: - Males, 42, females 198. I am sure that this census was taken by one ofthe " lords of creation," and may say that the differ ence in the numbers may be accounted for by the fact that the unmarried' males did not pass simply because they hap pened to be located in the public-houses and billiard-rooms of the locality. Yours, &c., UNMARRIED F EMALE.
MICROSCOPIC WONDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
MICROSCOPIC WONDERS. One of the leading scientific publications states ' that many people are now using tlie microscope to discover the real cause of disease in the system, and to detect adulterations of food and medicines. lliis wonderful instrument has saved many a life. A microscopical test shows, for instance, the presence of albumen, or the life of the blood, in certain derangements of the kidneys, but medicine does not tell us how far advanced the derange ment is, or whether it shall prove falal. The miscroscope, however, gives us this know ledge : Bright's disease, which so many people dread, was not fully known until the microscope re vealed its characteristics. It greatly aids the physician, skilled in its use, in determining how lar disease has advanced, and gives a fuller idea of the true structure of the kidney. A noted German scholar recently discovered that by the aid of the microscope, the physician looks for the development of almost any diseasee the system is heir t...
Sale of the Fairfield Horse and Cattle Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
Sale of the Fairfield Horse and Cattle Stock. The grounds at Fairfield on Tuesday bore an unusually lively appearance, occasioned by the gathering of visitors, both local and metropolitan, attracted thither by the chances of picking up a good nag or a prime milker. Mr. M'Quade has been for some time accumulating in his quiet way quite a large stock of really good horses and cattle, and but few persons in the district were aware of the little beauties, in both sections, that the stables and paddocks at Fairfield contained, uutil they saw them paraded at the sale on Tues day. The day was fine and warm, and intending buyers were glad to accept the grateful shade afforded by the pavHion, and, later on in the day, the trees along the avenue, though the auctioneer's i box was, both before and after lunch, pitched in the sun. Auctioneers, generally, are a hard headed race, and Mr. Garling, probably, is no exception to the rule, and didn't mind a bit how fierce old Sol's rays were, so long ...
WINDSOR AND RICHMOND Casette. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1888. The Christmas Festival. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
WINDSOR AND RICHMOND ©ajette. J SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1888. %. . . . - .. The Christinas Festival. " TIME and tide wait for no man," Whatever else may stand still or retro grade, the year sieadily and noiselessly rolls on. In a few hours the great festival of the year will he upon. us. Among the Englishspeakmgpeoples, no matter where fortune of necessity may have directed their steps, Christmas is kept as a season of rejoicing and of brief relaxation from the worrying cares of lousiness. Whether it is the bluff Englishman, proud of his Island home and its thrilling story of a thousand years, oi. the calm, reflective 'Scot, not less proud of his mountain land ?with its records of iiruc&lt;> and Wallace, or the warm-hearted, impulsive Celt, whole soul turns, true as the needle to pole, to Erin Marvourncen, the gem of the st'ormy Atlantic, or the hardy dweller in Canadian woods, or the bronzed toiler ion our own suj,ny ph.ins, to each alike there is a subtle magic in the wo...
V. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
V. kAa regards the family romanoe, I have lost good many entertaining details from mere neglect in writing them down at the time. But it will be a long time before I forget the after noon my cousin Sinfire spent with me in the laboratory, last week. It was partly purpose and partly accident. John hod asked me to talk with her in his behalf, and I was not averse from fathoming her mystery, if I oould ; but I doubt whether anything would hare been done if I liadn't happened to mention Saprani. The Indian name caught her ear, and sho began to ask me questions. In ten minutes I had her con sumed with curios'^y. I hid no intention of admitting her to tno sacred precincts of the laboratory. Indeed, no human being has crossed that mystic threshold since I estab lished my Lares and Penates there; and least of all did I contemplate ever entertaining a woman. However, I reflected that, if I want to get anything out of her, there could be 110 place better suited to that operation than my lab o...
The District of the Hawkesbury. No. 1. RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
The District of the Hawkesbury. [BY CLIO.] No. 1. RICHMOND. Iii the year 1809 the town the of Rich mond was first laid out, when Governor Maequarie awarded grants of land to deserv ing applicants on condition that they would erect suitable buildings upon them. Few if any of these buildings now remain, and could any of those old grantees return at the present time to earth, great would be their astonishment at the progress of the " Rich mond Hills" since their time. Richmond is 88 miles from Sydney and is situated about a mile from the Hawkesbary River. To the visitor it presents itself as one of the prettiest inland towns in the colony. It is well laid out, and the variety and number of trees throughout the town, and particu larly in the main street (Windsor-street), tends to make the town resemble a perfect garden, and it is this feature that brings so many metropolitan visitors. Another aid to the general beauty is the park, and I cannot extol this more than by congratulat ing the...
Christmas Day on a Station. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
Christmas Day on a Station. 'Twas merry in the glowing morn among the gleaming .grass To wander as we've wandered many a mile And blow the cool tobacco cloud and watch the wild wreaths pass Sitting loosely in the saddle all the while. "Twas merry 'mid the black-woods when we spied the station roofs To wheel the wild scrub cattle at the yard, With a running Tire of stockwhips and a fiery run of hoofs Oh, the hardest day was never then too hard. t A. L. GORDON. 'Roll up, boys, it's daylight!' It is the manager's voice, and all hands are dressed in their rough and ready backwoods cos tumes in a very few minutes, and in the kitchen where breakfast is awaiting them. It is scarcely yet daylight-the morning sun is peeping over the eastern horizon, and the first streak of grey heralds the ap proach of sunrise. The blackboys have gone out for the horses, and in a very few moments after breakfast the booted and Spurred stockmen will be galloping away in search of a mob of cattle, the teamster...
A Christmas Greeting. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
A Christmas Greeting. A merry Christmas-may your cares In golden floods of joy be drowned; Forget awhile your worldly wares, And send the brimming love-cups round, The feast is set. Come young and old, And laugh awhile at changeless fate Secure within the Christmas fold, Where watchful Love maintains the gate. Strong Love, that lives in spite of care, And laughs at time. The load of years, Our bitter strife and cold despair, Our vain regrets and idle tears, Are lost amid Love's cloudless light All fare alike beneath Love's sway, And all are welcome-none may slight The wayward sheep that seek to stray. All fare alike-the young the old, The rich, the poor, the mean, the great, From every land, of every tongue, For careful Love makes wide the gate; And led by Love's far-reaching light They come-a vast, unnumbered throng, Whose hearts are turned this Christmrs night To sing an endless Christmas song.

THE DANGrERFIELDS. (A CHRISTMAS STOBY.) [WIUTTKN SPECIALLY FOR W. AND E. GAZETTE, BY G. G. !>.] PROLOGUE. On 24th. of December, 1799, ail East Imliainan hauled into tlio great East India docks in a thick fog, and the pilot found groat difliculty in bringing the ocean-beaten and sun-blistered ship Cyprus to hot berth, owing to the gale of wind blowing and beat ing into'mimic waves the waters of Old Father Thames. The larger ampunt of the passengers (con sisted of the remnant of H. M. - th. foot, ordered home to recruit both in health and in numbers. How many longing eyes, look' ing out from pale and emaciated faces, how many thoughts of home, how many recollec tions of happy days spent in dear old Eng: land, come thronging to these returned exiles, although the cold and murky fog almost blots out the features of the scene. Still it is England, still it is home. The few women who are on board are some soldiers' wives whom death has spared. They are packing up their effects prepara ...

ST. ALBANS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888
ST. ALBANS. Having during the last month been doing the Hawkesbury River and its tributaries, I should like to say a few words re the crops; etc., especially as during this time the drought has broken to a great extent. The maize right the way through the district has grown very patchy, and the effects of this backwardness are still very plainly seen, more so this side of Sackville Reach. The fruit trees are laden with good crops, mostly, but the fruit has not the same flavor as in more favourable season. Melons will be plentiful, as they were sown in new ground.

GROSE VALE According to promise (says M. R. Forrester) I send you an account of the trip to the Fox den. "Well, to begin with, we met on the day arranged for starting; the band consisted of eight this time, all but one being member of the "old con tingent." I mention this as a very remarkable fact, that as the band was almost totally com posed of veteran campaigners at Fox shooting, we had no cases of " Funk," or " tummy-ache" all through the trip, although we had a storm on "Thursday evening, and got a good wetting, it .did not damp the spirits of the crowd. We arrived in camp, and naving a spare hour before night, we took some fishing lines and had a bit of sport fishing. We caught a few nice Perch and a small eel. There are some nice fish out in Wheeney, but you want to know your way about ?to find the best holes for fishing. We had bad luck with the foxes ; we could not find the main tody. We searched the old den, and every place likely to shelter them. We put in over two days t...
