PRESERVED MEAT FOR THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
PRESERVED MEAT FOR THE NAVY. The British Medical Journal learns that some difficulty has arisen as to the conditions to which the Admiralty require contractors for the supply of Australian preserved meat to agree; and that, consequently, no arrange ment has yet been completed for providing the quantity which the Admiralty recently requested tenders for. The evil reputation of preserved meat supplied on contrnct, resulting from former experience, appears to have made a deep impression on the authorities connected with the victualling department; and, to judge from the reference made to MrGoldney in the House of Commons on Tuesday, April 13, there appears to be no little fear that the reputation might again be justified. This is a point to which too much attention can scarcely bo given by those who are responsible for insuring a proper supply of food for the navy ; and it is even more important than the possible saving of 30,0002. a year which might be etFected if the Australian meat ...
BRITISH SHIPMENTS TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
BRITISH SHIPMENTS TO AUSTRALIA. Wo extract the following from Messrs Stables, Straker and Co.'s Australian Circulars:—" A comparative view of export values for the first three months during the past ten years, shows that the recovery in shipments which took place in 1868 has made further progress during the expired portion of the present year. Whether the reoent further decline in the Lmdon wool market will have any important effect in checking export operations for a time remains to be seen, but as the fact has been patent to all conversant with the subject for months past that no rise could be looked for in the immediate future, under the combined depressing influences of sluggish trade and increiued production, and that the most hopeful opinions pointed to nothing beyond a maintenance of current rates, we are inclined to the belief that the effccts of the fall have already been pretty well discounted in colonial circles. Comparing the totals of 1868 and 1869 respectively, we find...

STOCK REPORTS, &c. ECHUCA AND MOMMA. Tho following mobs of 6fcock heve cros'ed bince car last issue:— JuneS—2000 fat ewes, from Peters', Murrumbidgee. June 8—100 head of fat cattle, from Nap Nap station. Although the crossings have latterly been limited, considerable quantities of sheep, from the reports that reach us, may be e'speetcd before long from various parts of Riverina. The latest quotations from Sydney are—Best bullocks, £6 10s to £8 10s; best cows, £5 10s to £7 10s. In fat sheep there were no alterations to note. The demand for good sorts was still brisk. In Adelaide prime bullocks were fetching, last week, from £11 to £16, and prime ■cows from £5 to £7. As the shearing season advances,"the question as to the best "mode of washing the sheep is being very gener ally ventilated. Objections are raised to the hot water system with spoiling. The prevailing opinion appears to be that it may be carried too far, and that considerable caution is necessary in its use. It is...

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1869. The class of readers who invariably say " there is nothing in the papers to-day " will doubtless observe that" there is nothing1 in the " news brought us by the latest English " mail," but those who are not too fond of the sensational may gather from the summary many items of fair average interest to. all. The Koyal Family were well, and Her Majesty was able to hold a drawing-room; the Prince and Princess of Wales were being f6ted with barbaric splendour in the East, while Prince Arthur was doing " the land of "the Westthe work of disestablishment was going on bravely and the Liberal majority w,".s largely increasing a3 amendment after amendment wns being moved and lost.

CONTINENTAL NEWS. in iranee the bena'e voted tbe contingent of 10,000 men asked for by the Gove nment. With a view of shortening the transit of the Indian mails across France, three railway trains will run daily instead of two as before, and stoppages will be less frequent. The ejictoral struggle has commenced, and 900 candidates are in the field. The Opposition muster strong. The Government are accused of bribing the voters, by promising to execute great local public works. Such an interference with the independent action of the 'constituencies was defended by the Minister of the Interior, who was congratulated thereon by the Emperor, An Imperial appeal to the electors has just been issued in a pamphlet form. The main arguments relied upon are that the Emperor has seoured order and increased the prosperity of France; that he has raised her position, and that an unchecked Assembly would eventually beeomo despotic. True liberty, he argues, will be found in a balance of forces. M. Lav...

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. STORA'GE OF WOOL tN LONDON. Tiie lieelong Advertiser draws attention to 'the great reduction in expense, and the saving thnt could be effected by having1 commodious Warehouses for the storage and exhibition of Australian wool erected in the immediate Vicinity of the Millwall docks. The ware housing charges paid by the owners of wool imported into London, amount to £200,000 a year, one half ' * which might be saved, if the wool was stored at one place alongside the water and connected with the metropolitan failways. We have now before us the ac count sales of one bale of wool shipped on the "Star of Peace," which sold for 3£d per ^iound.
