CATTLE CROSSING THE RIVER MURRAY AT MAOMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 January 1864

CATTLE CROSSING THE EIVEK MURRAY . ? , AT MAOMA. Amongst the veracious notions that prevail abroad -with respect to onr adopted country is the opinion that Victoria is riverloas. . Not to speak now of our northern colonial boundary, the noble Murray, with its stretch of 2400 and navigable length of 2000 miles, Victoria alone possesses over -70 considerable rivers, and 275 creeks. The Murray, strictly speaking, is not as yet a Victorian river, seeing that, as its loft hank is the northern boundary. of our colony, .the river itself is in Now South Wales,, although the most permanent water supply is con tributed by: the Victorian watershed. ?. A select com mittee of the Legislative Assembly of Victoria which sat last year to take '.evideri'ce; and report on 'the best method of securing. to the* Victorian 'railways 'the trade of the river in '.the district of the Murray; Mur-' rumbidgee and Darling rivers, collected a 'great-deal of interesting information, relative to' tho vast, unde- ...

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 January 1864

PLEURO,PNEUMONIA. We continue to hear reports on all sides of the spread of pleuro-pneumonia; At Ballaarat, says tho Star, ' the advancing ravages of pleuro-pneumoniav ? have induced a greatly diminished consumption of beef, as many families have altogether banished the dish from their tables, from the fear of being ? injured, in health by the inadvertent consumption of diseased meat. From 600 to 700 head of cattle were for merly disposed of per week at the Turf Sale Yards, Ballaarat, and on an average for the same time from 1000 to 1200 sheep ; but now the sale of the former has diminished, and tho butcher finds very little call for his beef. It cannot be denied that, whether right or wrong, a great prejudice exists in the public mind against the consumption of beef, and unless something is done in the way of appointing inspec tors of all cattle sent into the market, we may expect to see this branch of trade fall off considerably. , As an. instance of the injustice done to the butc...

DISTRESSING SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 January 1864

DISTRESSING SUICIDE. A feeling of intense gloom was thrown over the town on Sunday morning last, by tho intelligence that Mr J. C. Young,- of the firm of Brown and Young, tailors, of Gray street, Hamilton, had on the previous night committed suicide. The unfortunate deceased^ had been a resident :.o£- Hamilton for; the lasttwo years 'and a half. Ho had recently been married, and some months back he was induced by ' a party to have a house built for him on an allot ment of- land -he had previously purchased at a Government sale. At the time of his death Young only owed £80 on the house, which, with the land, is certainly worth £200, but £40 of this debt was coming duo on the 4th January, and to meet this he had no resources without distressing ?' tho business. This seemed to havo preyed upon his mind to such an extent as to havo produced absolute insanity. Under this pressure his mind gave way: On Satu r day, Mrs Young spent the day with her father, Mr Bowler, and did not return home...

WM. THOMPSON'S SUBMISSION A SHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 25 January 1864

WM. THOMPSON'S SUBMISSION A SHAM. The Daily Southern Cross, of 22nd ultimo, states that important changes in the position of the Queen's troops wero to take placo immediately, throughout the whole of tho nosts from Auckland to Ncaruawakia. This is consequent upon a projected expedition of a ?very important nature, which will probably start about tho commencement of tho week, and the naluro of which prudence dictates we should not indicate. There are two reasons why. we should not — first, that the General's movements might thereby be anticipated; and secondly, that the lives of settlers inight be i jeopar dised beford'r'elief was at hand! ' : It is'the more neces sary too, from the fact that William Thompson's so called 'submission' has turned out, as we foretold it would, nothing but a fiction. , It has now been made plain, we believe, that at the same tune that he addressed his first letter to the Governor, which was construed to mean proposals of peace, he despatched letters to t...

THE MATCH AT ARARAT. The All-England Eleven- commenced on 1-ith inst. a match against twenty-two Ararat players, upon the ground of the A.C.C. Great preparations had been made for the match, and tho arrival of the English cricketers caused considerable excitement in this usually quiet gold-fields town.

The ground was studded with refreshment booths, which wore well pa tronised, abont.500 persons being present during the day.

Others, again, we behold who, by no exercise of mental ingenuity or plodding industry, but by tho mere forca of luck and circum-, stances ' over which they have hadno control,' have found the pear to fall ripe at their feet, and,- like Byron, have suddenly awakened and discovered tkem selves to be famous and the fortunate -possessors of largo balances at their bankers.
