THE LATE. MURDEROUS OUTRAGE. DEATH OF MR. WALSHE A ati!l'moro paiihful complexion, if possible; has been' assumed by this almost unprecedented case. About 10. 'minutes after 3 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon Mr. John S. Walshe, who had so gallantly intervened. between Mr. Smith and his assailant, expired in the &nbsp; Melbourne Hospital from the effects of the wound he had received. At about half-past 9 o'clock his state. was considered so dangerous by the medical officers of &nbsp; the institution, that it was thought advisable to take &nbsp; his dying deposition. Mr. Start, P.M., accompanied &nbsp; by Mr. Whelan, clerk of the police court, accordingly attended at the Hospital for that purpose. The pri- soneor in charge of Sergeant Summerhayes and two other constables, was present, as was also Mr. P. Stephen, on behalf of the wounded man; and Mr. Reynolds, who, as an old friend of the prisoner, watched the cse. The following was the deposition taken :...
ON SOME POINTS ON BUTTER MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Benalla Ensign and Farmer's and Squatter's Journal — 3 June 1870
ON SOME FPOINTS ON BUTTER IMAKING. Which of the two modes of making butter is the bet, that which uses the whole milk, or that whIch uses only the cream 1 is a question often asked. Each mode.hao its advocates, who claim for it. that it is at once the most economical, and lthe best butler producing. Taking the evidenco es it stands weo suspect the balance is in favour of the mode in which the butter is made from tihe cream, so for at least as the quality is concerned. Ia large dairies, where many cows arc kept, the churninog is much mors easily managed when cream is employed; on the other hand, there is mote trouble in placing the milk for raising the recam and taking it off and storing it up till ready for churning. This brings us to soother disputed soint ianbutter making, whether it is better to churn the milkeor cream-for this point applies to both-in a fresh. state or soured 1 Nero, nreia, the balanee appears to bein favour rof souring theacream or milk.
