(TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

(to THE EDITOR,) Sir, — I observe in the columns of your con temporary, the Times of Gundagai, that Mr. Sheahan, the inspector of stock in the dis trict, has a very thin skin, if his effusion to that journal be considered as a fair example. He has made use of expressions therein some what imitatory of lai^guage we have heard before in the assembly of wisdom in Mac j quarie street, and towards yourself in parti cular he comes out in print strong. It seems to me that Mr. Sheahan has forgotten the fact that public opinion has but ventilated through the press upon the proceedings ; therefore, to attack, individually is not the usual course adopted in replies; and again, is it possible that this official has forgotten the rule established, that all public servants are prohibited from making the subject of their duties, performance, or neglect a ques tion emanating from themselves through the press. It would appear so from the so called ' justification,'— a line of defence adopted. I am u...

Who's to Blame ?— The following letter, addressed to tlio editor appears in the last issue of tlio Erecnuuts Journal: — 'A few da.ys since a business matter took me to tlie rising' and important town ol! .Cootamundra, which is situated 011 the Great Southern line of railway, and distant about 200 miles from Sydney, which will, in the course of five or six weeks, bo for a time the terminus of the line. It supports two banks, lias post and telegraph oliices, and a Public School tliat would do credit to the metropolis, hotels and stores ad libitum. On concluding my business I took a stroll round tho town, ac companied by a friend, a resident of the place, wlio pointed out to me this building, and that building1, and other interesting ob ' jocts, when I asked to be shown' the Catholic church. 1 Oh! ' said my friend, ' we have no Catholic church, but Mass is celebrated in the. schoolroom.' 'Well, let us see that,' I ejaculated, and lie forthwith conducted me to the building in question. ...

THE INSPECTOR OF STOCK. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

THE INSPECTOR OF STOCK. (TO THE EDITOR.) ' And the Cocky ivas a tiller of the ground, and Jerry an inspector of sheep.' — New VER SION. Sir, — I perceive in the last issue of the Gun dagai Times that Jeremiah H. Sheahan, Esq., Inspector of stock, has written a letter, which for moderation in tone, subtlety of argu ment, and elegance of diction, is simply unique. It is just the kind of composition that one would naturalhr expect from a man whose sense of delicacy is only equalled by his lack of hesitation an entering into pro secutions, and in whom the love of making impertinent observations strives for mastery with his palpable and scrupulous economy of the truth. To take his effusion to pieces and criticise every part of it thoroughly would be an almost superhuman task — an Augean stable which no one but the great Jerry him self could cleanse. One or two passages, however, I cannot refrain from noticing. In speaking of your remarks relative to the decision of the Bench in the late ...

(to the editor.) 8 Sib,,— In your issue of the 21st instant, in ||| noticing the movement now making for the Si formation of a branch of the ' ' Sons of 11 Temperance' society, it may not be inten- || tional on your part, but you seem to give a If rather wicked looking stab at ' ' the advocate' 1 who came to your den. It is not easy to | say -which ' advocate'' you mean, as it seems I J several have been requestine vour kindlv i support. The little of that article which you have already given has been in a back handed way, and it evidently goes against your grain or you would certainly not be so wicked about it, whilst having to (I use the word advisedly) appear friendly to the cause. For decency sake and your good name you ?must appear friendly ; and for your inclina I tions and pocket, you stab from the 'grog side.' You want to run with tho kangaroo, . but stil hound on the dogs. I am well aware of tho danger of 'Jbearding the lion, in his den;' but, ' n'importe' my insigni ficanc...

MURRUMBURRAH. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

MURRUMBURRAH. (FllOM OUll COllRESPONDENT. ) Your comments upon the prosecutions by the Sheep Inspector of this district, against sundry sheep -fanners both at your town and also at Gundagai within a short period past, lias been received here with satisfaction. According to the )'ass Courier it appears that the inspector, in the fishing excursion, netted a sum of about £60, expenses, &c. Well, for an experiment that's not so bad ; still it was hardly contemplated by the Act under which tho proceedings were taken, that a public officer should lie able at any' time to increase his usual ' screw ' in the way and to the amount stated in the columns ol' your contemporary. It is to my mind ?' driving through an Act,' at tho needless expense of tin fortunate persons, who have omitted rather than committed. I trust wo have heard the last of these prosecutions, which remind me of the way of the world. Again I must report dry weather; our hopes are despairing of relief until too late. ...

Our present issue contains so much matter already relating to the late prose cutions by the Sheep-inspector for the district that we feel it necessary to offer an apology for making- further reference to the matter here : but circumstances compel us to do so. The comments which ?we thought proper to make upon those prosecutions, or rather the result of them, have brought upon us the ire of the inspector ; and for the edification of our readers we elsewhere reprint the amusingly sarcastic and wonderfully truthful epistle which Mr. Sheahan has . written with his own hand against us. Our respected Police Magistrate has ap parently also taken offence at our con duct, and has enquired whether certain language used in our article applied to him : and if we replied in the affirmative, we presume, he intended to make a Star Chamber matter of it. We are sorry to have occasion at any time to criticise the decisions of the Bench, or to speak of the conduct of our public servants in other than ...

CO-OPERATION AS AFFECTING FREE SELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

C0l®ERAiilON 'AS AFFECTING i; tlUJE SELECTORS. During tlie last few years the members of almost' /every class in the community— itiiore particularly those engaged in the . same pursuit — have seen the necessity for co-operation, in order that their con dition may, if possible, be made better. Hence, in the metropolis there exist the Trades and Labour Council, the Licensed Victuallers' Association, and a host of t others. The jointship has in every in stance been productive of the best results, arid has met the end for which each was specially designed. Considering that the Free Selectors form so large a section of the population of the colony, it is not at all strange that they should form a com bination in ' each locality, so that their grievances may, if practicable, be re moved, — indexed the marvel is that such associations were not brought into ex istence long before they -were* Seeing the absolute necessity for co-operation, and following in the footsteps of those in older and...

(To the Editor of the Gundagai Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

( To the Editor of the Gundagai Times. J Sir,— My attention has . been drawn te the last issue of the Cootamundra Herald wherein, for lack of something more interesting or inate love of slander, the Editor has thought fit to pour out the vials of his wrath upon the Bench that adjudicated, and myself for bringing certain prosecutions against several sheep owners in that district in my capacity as Sheep Inspector for the Uundagai district. It is not my intention to attempt any defence of the Bench, they are men of too nigh cha racter for such journalists to assail. In at- ? tacking them the viper will, in very truth, find that he gnaws the file in vain. As for myself his onslaught troubles me very little. These prosecutions are the most painful, troublesome portion of my duties that I would most gladly avoid. But when press notices and private information fail, unless the law is to become a dead letter, there, is no alternative. If the Editor of the Herald knows as little of his own d...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE LATE PROSECUTIONS UNDER THE SHEEP ACT. (To the Editor of the Gundagai Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

CORRESPONDENCE. THE ' LATE PROSECUTIONS UNDER . THE SHEEP ACT. (To the Editor of the Gundagai Times. J . Sir, — It appears that the sheep inspector for Gundagai has again mulcted several persons in costs at the police court, Cootamundra, and it seems a kind of proceeding that is growing into practice within the Murrum bidgee boundary. Of course no complaint is heard of the legality of the steps taken by the inspector to enforce the law against de faulters for th'eir neglect, yet it is a source of complaint when the very heavy _ costs are added to a nominal fine for an unintentional neglect in not understanding a duty. The costs of each proceeding is, in my opinion, a punishment inflicted upon a defaulter not contemplated by law. In the cases brought before your local court, if I recollect rightly, the costs were in each case some £3, and the fine Is. These costs were a fee to the in spector, mileage, and court costs. At Coota mundra the costs were some £4 (with pro fessional costs)....

(TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 4 September 1877

(to the editor.) Sir, — Knowing that you are at all times ready and willing to promote anything tend ing to the advancement of the public interest I beg to make some few remarks relative to the management, or I should have said the mismanagement, by those appointed as trustees to the Cootamundra town common. The fact of the extreme loss sustained by the inhabitants of the town during the last drought in stock by allowing sheep to eat up every blade of grass induced a meeting call ing every one interested to attend and to exercise every means to prohibit the whole sale depasturing of sheep on the common. This meeting was very largely attended, and the whole of the public expressed a strong determination to put it down, minus the butchers , one of whom, by the bye, if I mis take not, is one of the trustees. In case of a continuation of the drought this year, it was generally supposed that thing would have been remedied ; but it is otherwise, as sheep, say from 1000. to 1500, are to be...
