SWAN HILL. June 17. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 23 June 1869
SWAN H(LL. [from the puntman.] June 17. | 1 could not wait for ray first remittance wherewith to purchase a fresh supply of writing paper, without making a break in these my weekly lucubrations—so that, as you will observe, I have been compelled to make use of the blank pages of old letters. As I prognosticated in my last, the steamboats have fairly commenced their season, and I am kept continually on the alert day and night, looking after the wellfare of my great " stand by," the punt rope. With their—the steamers' —advent there has been another gentleman aroused from his slumbers. I mean our re spected custom-house officer, Mr Wyse; and, truth to say, he seems much happier looking now that he has something to do. There has been a talk some time of getting up races this year, but the subscription list has been adorning host Simpson's bar n long while without getting even respectably filled up, and I am afraid the idea for this year will have to be abandoned, for the town, and I mig...

TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 23 June 1869
TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. We oannot omit in our brief notices from timo to time of the progress of the town of Echuca to give a brief historical sketch of the initiation and completion of the building THE ECHUCA TOWN HALL. As our readers are already aware, it was iu 1867 that the rapid development of tho Border Borough suggested the desirability of erecting municipal offices worthy of a town that gave promise of taking a conspicuous place among the boroughs of Victoria, and which bado fairly to fulfil the remarkable prediction made as far back as the year 1801) by one "John Wright, Esq, London," in a work entitled "Christianity and Commerce— "Progression of Railways"—a work in which the author foreshadowed the foundation of a future "central city as nearly eqi " distant as possible" from Melbourne, Syd ney, and Adelaide, and, on an accompanying map, indicated the site a point within a very few miles of Echuca. Towards the end of 1867 the Council dccided upon erecting a Town Hall, and negot...

JSCHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1S08. Fancv any man of experience in colonial affairs halting or hesitating in his opinion as to the advisability of adopting prompt and energetic action in the matter of the establishment of manufactories. Surely, no such person can have given the subject the consideration which tho fur therance of the national interests demands on tho part of every sane citizen. The manu facture of all marketable commodities should engage our attention, and enlist our earnest co-oporation. These are the sources from whence we shall have to look for an increased and permanent prosperity. There cau be no question about it; and it becomes, therefore, our bounilen duty to ourselves, to our fellow countrymen, and to those who are to come after us, to exert ourselves by every means in our power for tho establishment and extension of all sorts of manufacturing industries. But when the opportunity is afforded us of forming factories of an almost exclusively Australian characte...

LECTURE AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 23 June 1869
LECTURE AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. The Poet Cowper and his works formed the subject of a lecture delivered on Monday evening by the Rev. George Mackie, of South Yarra, to an audience which filled the Pres byterian Church. The lecturer handled the subject ably, and after giving a very correct outline of the character of Cowper, as well as of his habits and manner of life from his boy hood, to the ripe old age at which he died, read several selections from hiB works, from which were shewn the general cast of his mind, and the scope of his poetic powers. The genial and kindly disposition and domestic virtues of the silver bard were dwelt upon with a view to the inculcation of the desira bility of cultivating the social amenities, and of acquiring a love of home. In treating of Cowper, to have forgotton John Gilpin would have been tantamount to placing the play of Hamlet on the stage of the Theatre Royal at the present time without Montgomery, or to attempting to pass a Land Bill denud...

PRIMITIVE FRONTIER INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 23 June 1869
PRIMITIVE FRONTIER INDUSTRIES. In looking around at the industries that are establishing- themselves about us, we ought not entirely to overlook what was done by those enterprising pioneers one scarcely hears a word about now-a-days. We ought not quite to forget how hard Mr Jemes Maiden, then a large capitalist, worked, and how he expended thousands on this part of the Mur ray—all thrown away past redemption as far as ho himself is concerned, but not without benefit to those who are living here now. It is quite twenty years, if not more, since he first settled cn the other side of the river with stock. He was a shrewd-headed, industrious, and speculative man, but, unfortunately, his education was sadly deficient, and his want of the knowledge of the arts of reading and writing brought him ultimately to grief. Ha formed stock stations, marked out bush roads leading from the interior to market, and de voted his energies to the foundation of a town —that now lively little village oppos...
A STRANGE NIGHT'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 23 June 1869
A STRANGE NIGHT'S WORK. (From Bell's Messenger, April 10.) j A few nights ago a band of eighty men interested in reclaiming the fallen women of the streets of London, sallied forth into the principal thoroughfares upon a midnight mission. Their object was to present a couple of little tracts, in a scaled envelope, to every unhappy wanderer they might. The tracts were of a very simple character, well calcu lated to stir remembrances of better things in the hearts of those who were not entirely lost to all sense of shame, and to bring a ray of hope into the breasts of those who were fast losing their way in the darkness of despair. What the secrets of London are, after the theatres and other places of amusement have elosed—on towards midnight—those who are outat'such times will know; and the workers who were bent upon their unusual mission saw nothing unusual. They saw the gay daughters of fashion of the vilest kind, who were under "protectors," rolling away in broughams and cabs; the...

THE MURRUMBIDGEE HAY, June 21. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 23 June 1869
THE MURRUMBIDGEE (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Hay, June 21. &nbsp; From the rapid rise of the river we may safely conclude that the annual river traffic has commenced. Captain Dorward arrived on Saturday evening with the steamer Victoria and barge. He is now quickly unloading and hopes ere many days to be up here again with 100 tons of cargo for Wagga. I observe another merchant has entered the list of com- petition in this small place. Mr T. E. Blew- itt, formerly clerk to J. H. Pollard, has started business in the receiving store rented from Messrs Moss Brothers. Our energetic towns- man Mr. James Simpson, blacksmith, having read a great deal lately about the Melbourne velocipedes, determined to make one himself and, succeeded in doing so, after a kind. It is laughingly called Simpson's "centipede." &nbsp; On a gentleman getting into it the other day he luckily escaped with his legs skinned, but they had a narrow chance of being smashed. Since then Mr. S. has made...
