COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. ' In common with all of the neighbouring '$? districts wo have been visited by a joyful rain, the like of which has not been seen in this locality for a long time. Coming' as it has in so opportune a time, it will be tho means of putting the district in a fairly prosperous condition.

A WATCH DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 September 1877

A WATCH DOG. ? Our reporter was out at Roxburgh lofk- 9 ing up an item, when he chanced to ine^j; ? Jones, who was just entering his front I gate. Jones asked him in, and the con- a versation turned upon the tramp nuisanco fl and presently Jones related his experience I with a tram]) as follows : — 1 One day, recently, a rough-looking* vagabond called at my house, accom panied by a forlorn, mongrel dog. I came upon the porch to see him, and he said : 'I say pardner, I understand that you wanted to buy a dog, and I brought one around for you. You rtever seen such a dog for watching as this one. You tell that dog to watch a thing, and bet your life he'll sit down and watch it until he i goes stone blind. Now I'll tell you )' what, I'll let you have ? ' I cut his remarks short at this point with the information that I didn't want a dog, and that if I had wanted a dog nothing on earth would induce me to ac cept that particular dog. So lie left and went down the street. He must have made...

CURIOUS EPITAPHS. ! On Dr. Sheridan.

BURRANGONG FREE SELECTORS' ASSOCIATION. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 September 1877

; BURRANGONG FREE SELECTORS' ASSOCIATION. (TO THE EDITOR.) Sir, — I. send you copy of a letter written by ' Pepper' to the Burrangong Argus giving his opinion of the Young Association, which you can publish if you think well of it ; if not can read it at our next meeting. — Yours, &c., H. F. Sir,— I am rejoiced to see the members of the Burrangong Free Selectors' Association have seen their mistake, and as sensible men have shown (from their absence from the meeting), they will no longer listen to the voice of the charmer, although he be their hon. sec.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 September 1877

The mania about the sheep cases has 'broken out in a fresh place. 'Veritas' in a letter to the Tumut and Adelong Times has come to the rescue of the 'chief member of the Gundagai Bench, and the really active and energetic Inspector of Stock,' to save them from the 'very silly' and ' ill-expressed' strictures (be doesn't know the meaning of this word) of that ' little contemporary the Coota mundra Herald .' Why take so much notice of so small a thing ! He would like to send our correspondent, ' A Poor Cocky,' and the editor with him, as a feast to the cannibal South Sea Islanders ; but he needn't go to that trouble, for we guess there's one cannibal in Tumut quite savage enough to eat both Cocky and the editor. From the painfully strained at tempts at sarcasm, stuttering, clumsy sentences, and murdering of the Queen's English in the Tumut letter, one can scarcely avoid being struck with the re semblance between it and the letter which we reprinted from the Gundagai Times signed ' J. ...

JOTTINGS FROM GOULBURN. Thursday, September 13. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 September 1877

JOTTINGS FROM GOULBURN. By Cousin Will. Thursday, September 13. The Weather.— I am thankful to say that since I penned my last letter (a fortnight) we have been, visited by most beneficial showers of rain. We were beginning to despond because of its lengthened absence : but that feeling of want of faith in the good ness of Providence gives place now to grati tude. It should be so. It is generally ac knowledged that the rain has been most opportune. We had' just arrived to that period when showers were required, and had they been witheld, our land would more or less have suffered, and would have been incapable of producing sufficient food for man and beast. Our hopes partook of this character till Monday last. The weather previously had been very fluctuating,— very threatening, but always deceiving. We have, however, had a good deal of rain since early on Monday morning, principally being of a showery nature. Not much fell to-day; and to-night is beautifully clear, but bitterly cold ...

Since J my last we have had several days of extra- ; ordinary high temperature considering the season; this was followed by rain, commenc ing on the night of the 9th ; and on the 10th \ and 11th showery weather continued.

BY CABLE. [from the daily PAPERS. '1 - - I London, Sept. 6. I Meiioemt Ali telegraphs that Ahmet Eyoub Pasha has driven the 12th Russian corps across the Lom, with a loss of 3000 men ; the Turkish loss was 900. The Turkish forces at Widtlin have been reinforced. Madame Theirs, claiming to arrange the funeral cortege of her late husband, wished the presence of the Senate and Deputies. The Government, however, would not par ticipate, and would only pay military honours to the deceased. The Earl of Derby, in the course of an address at Liverpool, said that the present time was unfavourable for any intervention . in regard to the s war by third parties. When the time arrived, and it was, perhaps, . not far distant, England would not lose the opportunity. Sept. 7. Servia, in replying to British representa tions against warlike preparations, said that she must be prepared for every emergency. An interview will shortly take place be tween Prince Bismarck and Count Andrassy. Sept. 8. The Ru...

DIABOLICAL ATTEMPT AT ASSASSINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 September 1877

DIABOLICAL ATTEMPT AT. ASSASSIN ATION. It would be difficult to fathom the evil pro pensities of the being who could be capable of making such a diabolical and cold-blooded attack upon the life of a fellow-creature as that which has lately been made upon the life of our Government Astronomer, Mr. H. 0. Russell. Whatever olfence may be given by one man to another, no matter how das tardly grievous or malignant it may be, can not iustify the shedding of human blood even in the fiercest attack of anger : but one shudders to think that it is possible for a human crea ture to live and have his being amongst us who would not scruple to take the life of a gentleman of high standing and great public worth by means of an infernal maqhine, which for murderous ingenuity is worthy of no other instigator than a satellite of Pluto himself. Yet such appears to have been the case ; and the only cause of rejoicing is that Mr. Russell has providentially escaped fall ing a victim to so inexpressibly v...

"OUR LAND LAW." (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 September 1877

'OUR LAND LAW.' (to the editor.) Sir,— My attention was called some time ago to a pamphlet entitled 'Our Land Law.' As the amendments set down in it .purport to be the requirements of selectors in gene ral, I hope a few remarks thereon will not be out of place. First, the writers of and adherents to 'Our Land Law' would ask for the total abolition of the improvement clause. Very good, so far. I hold that a man should be at liberty to spend his time and lay out his money to the best advantage. Almost in the same breath, however, the pamphlet advocates for the passing of a compulsory fencing act. What they mean I am quite at a loss to know. Do they mean to infer that fencing is no improvement ? Certainly that must be the meaning to attach to it. Then, if fencing is no improvement, but simply an amusement, the sooner it be comes law to compel people (especially in the- interior) to amuse themselves fencing the better. How absurd the language of the pamphlet is. First, it seeks to aboli...

POETRY. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 25 September 1877

POETRY. - BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY. In speaking of another's faults, ( Pray don 't forget your own ; Remember, those with homes of glass Should never throw a stone : If we have nothing else to do But talk of those who sin, 'Tis better we commence at home, And from that point begin. We have no right to judge a man Until he's fairly tried ; Should we not like his company, . We know the world is wide. . ' Some may have faults — and who has not ? The old as well as young ; ? Perhaps we may, for aught we know, Have fifty to their one. I'll tell you of a better plan, And one that works full well — I try my own effects to cure Ere I of others' tell. And though I sometimes hope to be No worse than' some I know, My own shortcomings make me let The faults of others go. Then let us all, when we commence To slander friend or foe, Think of the harm one word may do , To those who little know.

DEATH OF A NOTORIOUS BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 25 September 1877

DEATH OF A NOTORIOUS BUSH RANGER. The celebrated bushranger, Martin Cash, died at his residence, Glenorchy, on Sunday the 26th ultimo. We learn that Cash went to the Lord Rodney Hotel, New Wharf, on the evening of the 10th ultimo, and informed the landlord, Mr. Samuel Weir, that in con sequence of severe illness, he had applied for admission into the General Hospital, but had been refused. Weir allowed him to remain at the hotel till the following Monday, when he returned to his home at Glenorchy. It will be remembered that in the year 1870 Cash published in book-form an account of his adventures, from which we glean the follow ing particulars : — He was born in the year 1810, m the town of Enniscorthy, Wexford, Ireland. Cash's career as a young man, was according to his own account a series of events calculated to develop into the more serious phases of crime, and he was subse quently convicted of shooting a love rival named Jessop, for which offence he was sen tenced to seven year...
