BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 12 June 1869
BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. I The Banks of the Murray.—A con tributor to a London contemporary gives a fascinating account of the sport to be had in Australia The description—of which the subjoined is an extract—of a morning on the banks of the Murray, is enough to make the mouths of British sportsmen water:—" On a bright morning I visit a part of the Murray where the shallow lagoons stretch out into extensive lakes, bordered by reeds, with here and there small islets and clusters of bulrushes. What a wealth of bird-life is here!—the pelican and the black swan at home, with aquatic, and wading birds of all sorts and sizes, swimming, diving, walking, and feeding, not by oneB or twos, but actually by thousands. I can get a little way up the cliff side, and sit in the Bhade and watch them quietly. A colony of huge pelicans occupy a sandbank a good way off; they are busily pluming them selves in the sun, and trimming their feathers with their great pouched beaks. The contrast of their...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Melbourne. Friday Night. A meeting of Mr Hugh Glass's creditors was held this day, and the general impression seems to lie that there is no doubt matters will be satisfactorily arranged. The amount of the liabilities has been enormously over stated.

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 12 June 1869
C|e §Uterrae ECSUCA, SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1869. After all, the country, on the whole, really seems to be very little concerned about the fate of the new Land Bill. This indifference may arise from two causes. It may be thought that any opposition to the present powerful Government would be useless, or the public generally may be satisfied with the principles of the measure. But it does not seem that the Bill is to be permitted to run so smooth a course as has been anticipated for it. The antagonistical element is not confined to the Opposition side of the House. Not only is it exhibiting itself on the cross benches to the right and left, but, contrary to all expecta tions, it has burst into light at the very back of the Treasury seats. Fancy Mr JFrancis expressing his disapprobation of the pet scheme of the Government, and declaring that it is calculated to produce the very opposite results to those it was designed to effect. " I intend," he says, " to regard this vexed matter of land...

STOCK REPORTS, &c. ECHITCA AND MOAMA. No mots of stock or sheep have been registered Bineo last Tuesday. Several Bmart showers havo fallen since our last, and more rain is evidently impending. Wo are glad to learn that the fall has extended to the northern districts, ■where it was beginning to be needed. Excellent reports nre to hand of tho stato of the country on both the Murrumbidgee and Lachlan rivers. On the latter, how ever, complaints are made that the rapidly growing feed has suffered greatly by the ravages of the caterpillars, and also from large mobs of the liogau Company's sheep ■which have been travelling along the course of the river. The stock, however, generally are stated to be recovering condition in a satisfactory manner, leading to the anticipation of considerable quantities of both fat cattlo and sheep being shortly moved off for market. At present, however, there aro no movements of this description to report. A general muster for delivery is taking place...

In the Legis lative Assembly, on Tuesday, after the prelimi nary business had been disposed of, Mr Grant moved the seoond reading of the LAND LAVS AMENDMENT BILL. Mr Grant having entered npon an explanation of the leading principles of the measure, similar to that given by him on its first reading, proceeded to say that power was in the aot reserved to the Governor in Council to make necessary reserva tions for water frontages around homesteads, and for other purposes ; and although that, power had been attacked in the press, it had existed for the last dozen years, and must exist, no matter by whom it was administered.

THE NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 June 1869
-TEE- NAVIGATION OF THE MURRAY. . (FROM THE AGE, JUNE 12) Amidst the railway construction, the con struction of waterworks, the construction of new measures and the conspirings of parties, orie thing has been forgotten, or remembered only to be neglected. A recent telegram from Echuca is a reproach to us as a practical people. The brief intimation consisted in the statement that the Murray was open for the season. Eighteen years since the opening of the: gold fields made a State of a sheepwalk, and, enticing ten of thousands to our shores, endowed us with a large trade and a fine revenue, and yet the navigation of the Murray is almost as difficult a task as it was eighteen years ago. Available for a few months, then closed for a jong period, the Murray is to us what the St Lawrence is to Canada, with this difference, that the obstacles which nature has placed in our path we can overcome, but the Canadians cannot so overcome theirs. We are about to make a railway to Belvoir, another ...

The Riberine Herald ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 June 1869
C|e lliteme ||erak ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1869. We have to congratulate the borough councillors of Echuca upon having taken a step—though not a very long one—in the right direction. The thin end of a very useful sort of wedge has been inserted, and a few weeks will doubtless see it driven home. In a word, the Council, at their meeting on last Wednesday evening, almost unanimously re solved that in future no motion involving the expenditure of a sum greater than £10 shall be carried without notice having been given at the previous meeting, except such expendi ture shall have been recommended by the Public Works' Committee. This resolution inclines but slightly towards the views we have so repeatedly put forth, but we are thankful for even small favours, and all the more bo when we fancy that we can see larger ones a very little way a-head. We asked that the limit should be £5, and we did not ask for the provision touching tho recommendation of the committee; but,when we come to ...

Cater v Luth.—This was a case in which the plaintiff, Snrauel Cater, sought to recover a sum of L? lis, for wages alleged to be due him by the defendant, Henry Luth. Mr Taylor appeared for the defendant. The plaintiff's evidence went to shew that ho had been engaged by defendant as a draper's assistant on the 8th of May. That he had worked for him from that time until last Saturday morning, when he was dismissed without notice. He claimed L3 for the week's notice which he considered he ought to have received. Mr Taylor submitted thnt the defendant had not got possession of the business (Mr Hogarth's) until the 24th May, and that he was willing to pay the plaintiff from that day until the morning when he was dismissed for having been under the influence of liquor on the previous night. Also, that until the week should have been completed the plaintiff could prove no loss through the dismissal, and could consequ...
