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

Concert at Riverstone. A very pleasant entertainment was given at Riverstone on Saturday evening last, in aid of funds for the purpose of erecting a fence round the St. Paul's Church. Despite the fact that heavy rain had fallen during the afternoon, there was a good attendance, and the ladies and gentlemen cencerned deserve great praise for their efforts to please. Miss Mellish, who is an acquisition to Riverstone, played a very pretty overture; Miss Josephs sang "Jessie's Dream," and was loudly applauded; Misses Phelps and Griffin treated the audience to a duet, " Whispering Hope," and Miss Pearly Windred, a little dot, danced the High land Fling in first-class style, and Mrs Laws' and Miss Mellish made a very good j impression their splendid rendition ! of the duet, " Far Away."

XII. Henry, my brother, forgive the hard things 11 lave thought of you ! Everything dwindles into insigmheanoo in the prosenoo of a cala mity such asthis. How futile and insincore all my speculations scorn now? And now re pentance is us futile, however sincere it may bo. But we must not think of our sorrows yet. Tho first thing* to bo done is to discover, and to punish. I shall never forget that knocking at my door. I can hear it now: I shall hoar it in dreams. It seemed to carry its message with it, before a word was spoken. And yet, when tho words were spoken, I could not understand thtm j they fell like meaningless sounds on my ear.

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

X. It is decidedly irritating to be laid on one's book in this way, just when one would most wish to be more than usually aotire1 and efficient. But the milk is spilt, and worry ing will not restore it to the pitcher. I must; keep quiet and hope for better things. At all events I have abundant opportunity to indulge my new hobby of writing. The topio of special interest at present is the burglars, from information wo have re ceived, as the newspapers say, we are in a position to say that there is a probability of our being the next viotims. No doubt they are a skilful gang of rascals j buteven an amateur thief might operate in this neigh borhood with comparative security. "We nave two or three infirm and erratic constables to take charge of twenty or thirty square miles of territory ; and the facilities foresoape and concealment afforded by the topography of of this region are all that the most fastidious oould desire. Accordingly, we have seriously node up our minds to defend onrse...

Considering that my regimon of life has boon tliu least self-indulgent of any of my father's sons, this Booms hardly fair. But there is nothing fair in herodity, whether its gifts be good or bad. It is arrant theft or bribery, us tiie caso may bo. Father himself came of a lino of free-livers, and yet ho suffered scarcely at all from the hereditary ailment; and it has cropped out iu me in puio wantonness, diroot from my grandfather (who suffered terribly, by nil accounts), while ray two brothers go free and drink their fill.

VII. My chief regret is that I was not present wlien Henry and Sinfire mot. To one who knew what to look for, as I did, that could not linvc failed to reveal something. But, j when I came in the meeting had already taken plnre, ft ml Sinfire had retired to her room. ' .Mir ii< iilwayx »o thoughtful, so much tact,' mother remarked. Though, really, I look upon licr as quite a member of the family, apart from her being my niece.' All the lime that Henry and I wore ex changing our greetings and oofafratulations,. and our first questions and answers, I was speculating about him and Siniiro. He has , been changed, improved, and also in some respects injured, by his life in the world; but on the whole, he appears more improved and less injured than might have been anticipated. His being thirty years old instead of twenty fire is enough, of itself, to account for a great deal. The youthful outlines of his face have matured; it is the face of a good-natured man of the world, somew...

vm. John, Lord Codarcliffo, in his capacity as squire oi this neighborhood, has boon obliged to give a good deal of attention to the gang of burglars which has of late been infesting the region ; but so far the ' authorities' hare been successful only in securing evidence of past depredations. News has just arrived that last night thev got into General Furnace's house, which is only two miles from ours, and carried off all poor Mrs. Furnace's jewellery. This is to bad in itself, and it also raises the interesting question whether we may not be the next objects of attack. They were very quiet and skilful, and also very leisurely and audacious ; for they made a most careful and fastidious seleotion from the booty at their disposal, and took nothing that would not be readily and immediately available. As a law-abiding and respectable citizen, suoh outrages as this have my sternest repro bation ; but as a human being, with a good slice of the old Adam in me, I confess a good deal of sec...

xvr. Some cynic once declared that the heaviest calamity that can befall a man is to see all his hopes fulfilled. It must be an old say ing, fur the legend of Tithonas illustrates it; and many an unhappy victim of success has i proved its truth since then. It seems that I. too, am to realize its bitterness. Whan John's testimony was concluded, yesterday afternoon, an adjournment was taken, until next morning; but when we had nearly finished supper, a visitor was an nounced, and I went out to see him. It was the sheriff, Mr. Faxon, looking very gloomy and embarrassed. ' Anything new, Mr. Faxon P' said I. ' I've oome on a very disagreeable errand, doctor,' he replied, ' and that's a fact. Is that young lady inside f-Miss Forrestal P ' Sue is at the table,' said I, a fleeting an indifference I was very far from feeling.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888

TOPICS OF THE DAY. Listen to mc, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indiflerent good to either. I have long ago given up that long and fondly cherished tradition of the beauty of peasant girls, the prettiness of villages, or the picturesqueness of peasant costume. It is an illusion which has been buried. I give up the Italian pifferari, the saltarella, purple vines, the rayed petticoats and table-cloth head-dresses of the Italian contadine, the harvesters of Leopold Robert, the brigands of Pinelli, the high-laced caps and shining sabots of little Normande Paysannes, the pretty Welsh girl with a man's hat, the lustrous eyes, pearly teeth, and henna-tipped fingers of Turkish women, the pretty bare feet and dark hair of the maids of Connaaght, the buy-a-broom quaintness of the yellow-haired Alsacienne, the ribboned bodices, straw hats, and chintz skirts of our comely Eng lish peasant girls, the Biankanese flower-girls, the little match-sellers of Madrid, the Castilian musicia...

The perjury wliicli I committed answered its purpose. After considerable discussion, Sinfire was acquitted ; and Henry's murderer still remains unknown.

News in Brief. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888

News in Brief. Merry Christmas To you all! At the Council meeting on Wednesday evening, Alderman Dean complimented the Mayor on the very satisfactory arrangements he had come to uah tiio Gas-Company,-and rightly, too. A local storekeeper this week received a keg of factory butter, ioolbs, from Sydney, for which he had to pay isgd per pound, or £& 15. Think of ' this, oh, ye farmers. Would it not pay well tu go in for dairy-fanning, and thus supply the local market. "Did you hear the thunder last night, Bridget," queried the lady of the house of the help. "No, " was the laconic reply. On Thursday:- I " L)id you hear the thunder LAST night, Bridget ? j queried the same lady. " Yes, but I woul.ln't have heard it only for the noise the mosquitos was making." Not bad. The Mayor has put xo men on to work the trees &c., at McQuade Park, and two others have been j set to work on the lviver Ke.serve. \ttention is called to the new advertisements in this issue, (live our adver...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 22 December 1888

LOCAL AND GENERAL. A RAILWAY ACCIDENT.-A slight accident occurred on Sunday morning last to the goods train which runs to Richmond. The train arrived ai Riverstone before the midnight passenger, and proceeded on its journey after shunting some trucks about. Reaching Mulgrave, by so nr..- mis hap a truck was run into, and a crash occurred. We were seated alone in a carriage at th : time, and our meditations were abruptly disturbed, the force of the concussion resulting in our being thrown from our perch up against the door of the apartment. We rose after a ti ne, minus portion of our scalp, with a huge indentation in the vicinity of the left upper jaw. We believe that the guard was thrown from his van by the collision. The truck was injured, and some of the goods it con tained. X7IRE.-An alarm of fire was raised on Saturday | morning last about 4 o'clock, when Mrs. W. Hull, who had been up with her infant child, observed , smoke proceeding from the premises occupied by | Joseph Arnst...

The post week has been one of counsel and nncertainty. I am always involved, at such times, but us a sower only, never as a reaper. Everybody seems to think that it is just as much my duty to prescribe for perplexing cir cumstances as for physical disorders. It is true, they do not think it neoessary to accept my prescriptions, unless with some such formula as ' Well, that is the ooncluaion I had arrived at myself.' But they would not be lieve their ears if I were to turn the tables upon them, and conBuIt'them as to what I had better do. Mother bore down upon me the other day in her line-of-battle-ehip manner. She is, indeed, an impressive and redoubtable old lady. My earliest recollections of her are as a tall, lender person, dressed generally in white, and with a cool, polished, rather sarcastic manuer. She was not cool when she got angry, how ever. How her cheeks would redden and her eyes flash, and what sharp things would issue from her sharp-cut lips! These outbursts used to fr...

I am more of a wizard than I had myself imagined. Whan I told Sinfire, three days since, that I expected Henry to be here in a few days 1 told her a white fib : at least, I expootod him no more than I have done at any time during the lost three or four years. He might come, of course, but the chances were about ten thousand to one that he would not. The truth is, I was merely trying an experi ment. Various more or less vague indica tions-some of them trifles light as air-had suggested to my mind the notion that Sinfire and Henry had already met, perhaps in India and that thnir m eting had not been without an effect upon them Both. What sort of an effect f I oannot protend to say. But, tak ing into consideration Binfires beauty and Henry's incorrigible susceptibility, and the power of fascination of both of them, it did not seem altogether unlikely that they might have fallen desperately in love with etoh other. So far, so good : there would be no particu larharm done. It was the seq...
