SWAN HILL 8th June. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 June 1869
SWAN HfLL. fFnOM THE PUNTMAN.I 8th June. I Yes. I will accept your offer—three gui neas per week. Guineas, mind, are not to be sneezed at these hard times; and that, added to what I get tor working the punt here, I think, will keep me in "grog and 'baccy," which is just about as much as any one else is making now-a-days, as far as I can see. Your readers—and mine too by the way— will doubtless imagine from the foregoing paragraph that I am one of the easy-going specimens of humanity, contented with my lot, and all that sort of thing; but they are mistaken, for I'm not of an easy-going na ture, nor am I contented, for I have a griev ance which I wish to make public. This is it:—For twenty years I and my predecessors have been slaving away at this old punt here, attending the call-bell at all sorts of unrea sonable hours, and in all sorts of weather; aye, and supplying the public with all sorts of conveniences for crossing their waggons, their drays, their buggies, and their sheep in ...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. MELBOURNE, Tuesday Night. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 June 1869
LATEST TELEGRAMS. (from our own correspondent.) Melbourne, Tuesday Night. ( The Criminal Sessions were opened this morning, when the trial of Hugo Levin per, for the murder of three natives of the .Fiji Islands, on board the ship Young Australia, was postponed. As there still seemed to be some doubt with regard to the sanity of George jRitson—the murderer of the late Rev Mr Hili—he was re manded to the next Criminal Sessions. Thomas Daly, the man committed for the Swamp murder, was also remanded to the next Criminal Sessions. John W. Emanuel, alias Manuel, was found guilty of a charge of bigamy, and his sentence was deferred. In the Assembly, the debate on the new Land Bill is unfinished. Mr M'Bain, at some length, defended the interests of the squatters. At the Moatna Police Court, on laat Monday, Mr George Maunsell, I'.M., conducted a sale of Crown lands, situate in and near Moama. The attendance was not very large, but the bidding was tolerably brisk, and, in some instanoes, the ...

Locally we have very little news as to stock transactions; in tlio course of a few weeks wo expect some mobs of store cattle, for which there is con siderable demand for Riverine stations as well as for Victoria, and good framed wethers for fattening would sell well. Considerable quantities of fat sheep arc ready for Victorian markets, but as shearing approaches stock owners are not o?er anxious to sell at current rates. The weather is beautiful—light showers, cold nights, aud warm suuny days. The following is our stock news at Deniliquin: Mr W\ H. Graves, for Ryan and Hammond, reports sale of 250...

TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. ie [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 June 1869
TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. ie x Notwithstanding the oomplaints one fre quently hears of the dulness of the-times, the Btngnanoy of trade, and the eoaroity of money, Echuoa continues gradually and Barely to grow and improve. If the murmurs against the ex isting condition of things were well grounded, it would be little short of miraonloua to find new buildings springing np, and others largely inoreaB ing their proportions in the way that they do in this much abused Borough of the Borders. The fact is, people frequently do not know when they are well off, and although the contrary is habitu ally asserted, there are evident proofs about us that our population on the whole are " doing re markably well." Among the more prominent improvements that have taken place within the last few months, we may notioe those whioh have been made to the stores of Mr Hay ward, at the oorner of Hare aod Heygarth streets. These have been extended very considerably, and have not only been rendered exceedingly oommo...

THE MURRUMBIDGEE.. (FEOM OUtt OWN CORRESPONDENT.) hay, i4t& June, loea. [ Hay fias certainly, at the present time, any thing but a lively appearance, and any stranger paying us a visit would naturally think that we a/e living one upon the other. Such, however, is not the case; times here aTe no worse than in most country plaoes this time of the year, and very many of the spirited inhabitants of this small but important town have great faith in the future greatness of Hay, as witness the great improvements at present going on. T;irfcakover Brothers have built and opened a fine new store opposite the PoBt-ofEee. Mr Milne, chemist, &o., is having a tine new shop built, and will shift into it in about two weeks.

BORDER INDUSTRIES. BUILDING AND REPAIRING STEAM VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 June 1869
BORDER INDUSTRIES. BUILDING AND REPAIRING STEAM VESSELS. The carrying requirements of the important and extensive trade which has sprung up between the Riverine districts and the capital of Victoria during the last few years, and especially since the opening of the railway, has called into existence a large number of steam vessels, which ply busily on the Murray and its navigable tributaries during the annual season of flood. The greater number of these have been built at Echuca, and are generally a very fine class of light draught river boats. Nearly the whole of them were built origi- nally of Oregon pine, the native timber being considered too heavy for vessels of the descrip- tion. This, however, is now an acknowledged error, and in consequence of the very superior strength and durability of the red gum, nearly the whole of the pine built boats have been stripped of their planking, which has been replaced by that obtained from the forests of the river valley. Thus we frequently ...

CLEARING OPERATIONS ON THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 19 June 1869
CLEARING OPERATIONS ON THE MURRAY. The clearing parties under Mr Shelley have been busily at work in the Murray below Echuca since November last, and have done a considerable quantity of work, which the steamer masters pronounce to have been of great service to the navigation. A large number of overhanging trees have been thrown back from the banks between Echuca and Campbell's Island, and the passage at that island has been completely cleared. For a distance of about nineteen miles the channel was choked up with snags, many of which were of very large size, extending from bank to bank. This has hitherto been considered one of the most dangerous points in the river, but as the passage has now been thoroughly cleared, impediments of every description having been withdrawn, it will no longer be the dread of masters of boats which it was formerly. There are some very bad bends for a distance of about six or seven miles abova the island, and these are now being cleared by the two iron p...
THE ECHUCA STANDARD BREWERY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 19 June 1869
THE ECHUCA STANDARD BREWERY. This brewery was established some five years ago by Messrs Elliott and Disher, from whom it was purchased about two years 6inee by the present proprietor, Mr M'Arthnr, who has made considerable improvements. Almost the whole of the old plant has been remeved, and replaced by new, while some important additions have been made, among which may be particularly mentioned a large gyle, formed of Castlemaine slate. Mr ll'Arthur can now turn out thirty hogsheads of ale with ease in a week, and it is certainly of a very superior description, and fully equal to the very best of the favourite :iles of Bendigo and Ca6tlemaine. During the navigation season he does a large trade with the Riverine districts, which will, no doubt, increase yearly. Mr M'Arthur intends, we believe, shortly to add the manufacture of gingerbeer and cordials to his brewery, and no doubt will prove as successful in that branch as he has in the more important one of beer business. Although hi...
