Saturday 13 May 1882, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser



[Evening News.]—The delegates from the
Macleay railway league have returned to
Kempsey. They report that while in Armi-
dale they addressed a large public meeting
in the Guild Hall, at which resolutions were
unanimously passed in favour of a line of
railway from the tableland of New England
to Trial Bay.

At a meeting of the progress committee
held yesterday it was resolved to ask the
Government to erect a new post and telegraph
office in Central Kempsey. At present we
are almost as badly off as the Dubbo people
with respect to the existing office for which a
rental or £40 per annum is paid.

A man named Richards dropped dead at
Salmon's Hotel, Spencer's Creek, on Monday.
An inquest is now being held.

The weather is fine and dry, and rain is
badly wanted.
