The North Sydney News Boy (4 Sept. 1883): "Our object is, in the first place, to give the current news of the day in the most condensed and explicit form; next, to inform the public on subjects of general importance without boring them with details of minor interest.
Public men and public events will be referred to without animus or personality.
Politics, - except as the action of politicians affect our immediate interests, - shall be carefully eschewed.
Religious matters or correspondence, except when of general interest, will not be admitted to our columns.
Local information will be carefully attended to, and no references made unless of interest to the community."
