AN EXTRAORDINARY WILL CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 July 1878

AN EXTRAORDINARY WILTL CASE. . y the mail news we learn that an; extra ordinary will case is' in course of trial in Dublin.- Mrs Neville Bagot, a daighter of the late Sir W..Verner (a great'oldhero in the Peninsular, war, and for many years M.P. for the County Armagh, Ireland,) seeks to set aside the will of her husband on the ground that at the time it was made he was unduly controlled by his brothers, to whom the bulk of his fortune was left. The defence is that Mrs BTagot's conduct was, such that her husband lost his affec tion for her. : The husband, Christopher Neville . Bagot, went to South 'Austrlia in 1844; and returned a wealthy man be tween 1860 and 1870. He purchased an estate in Galway .for £105,000, and the rental is now £6000 per annum. He went through many adventures abroad, and after his return he was thrown from his horse while hunting in England, and sus tained injury to his spine, which was the principal cause of his ultimately becoming paralysed from his hips.

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE.-A little in :Tormation is to hand concerning our Institute. Mr G. R.

There are other collectors, but we havio no news as to their proceedings. 9rdrr Watson's amount, we think, wipst be ;more than all the rest put frogether. The delay in the questiop-' of site is -caused through having to,/await a reply from. the Government/' as to another site.

The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, JULY 5, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 July 1878

The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, JULY 5, 1878. SUNDAY SCHOOL.—It is very gratify- ing to have to record that steps are be- ing taken to establish a Sunday School, where all denominations may send their children to learn the rudiments of chris- tian truth and knowledge. Parents' duties are often so multilarious and oierous, that they must hail with plea- sure the establishment of a permanent Sunday School to be conducted regu- larly by efficient teachers. We observ- ed some ladies making their rounds collecting small amounts for the fur- therance of the object, and enabling books, prizes, &c., to be procured. We learnt that it was also in contemplation     to give an occasional children's treat. All these matters bring us back to civilization, soften our hearts, and teach us to reflect that though living for time there will be an eternity be- for us. LAND SALE.--The Government auc- tioneer Mr Bristow, will sell severa...

THE EARTHQUAKE AND THE FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

'1ILE E]AIRTiIQUAKE ANI) TIIE FLEET. An officer of one of the B]ritish ironclads serving in the Sea of Marmora writes a, follows with reference to the earthquake that took place there on the evening of Good Friday:-" I was seated in my caiin when suddenly, without a moment's notice, there was a strange sound, and the ship began to shalik, as if she was steaming at a very high rate, or rnuning on to a hank It once there was a rush from all partsof the ship to the upper deck, and some of the men were completely carried off their legs while running up the ladders. The vibr. tion lasted some seconds, and there was a sound as of water bubbling up underths ship's bottomn, bhut the surface of the sea was calm all round. We took soundings as quickly as possible, but the lead showed that no alteration whatever had taken place in our anchorage ground. Tn Ismid itself some houses were thrown down, and also the top of a minaret. At one of the villages near Ismid much damage was done, and it is ...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

IAGRICULTURAL NOTES. The heavy frosts and cold weather of the past few days are retarding vegetation, and keeping back the growth of the early crops, as well as pasturage grasses, but as yet, except in some instances of old worked ground, where the land has been soddened, but little injury has been done. Genial weather and a favorable spring will remedy all the evil in this respect. Agricultural operations are well advanced in the Bendigo district, and there is everty hope of a good crop in the coming season, and a more ex tensive production of cereals than ever we had in this district. The crops in the Little River and Duck Ponds districts continue to present a very flourishing appearance, although in some cases the growth has been retarded by the present cold. This, however, is not consi dered to be prejudicial, as had the wet wea ther continued they would have suffered damage. The pasturage has not improved much, owing to the severe coldness of the weather. We learn that a consid...

AND Swa\?HILL GAZETTE. rLTBLISll F?D WFEELr. KERANG, JULY t2, t873. TIlE GOVERIOPrS SPEECH. The usual Ministerial proyramme is before the country as represented by the Governor's speech, and as far as we can see there is nothing of extra impor tance, either fur good or evil in it. The reoommendation of Sir Winm. Jervois as to defence armaments,are to be carried out with vigor. This comes rather late in the day when we are learning from our latest cablegrams that the prospect of a permanent peace is al most certain. Duplication of the sub marine cable has been considered of sufficient importance to justify the pre paration of a coritract with the Eastern Telegraph Extension Co. to be laid before Paliament Selection of a site for an International Exhibition in Melbourne has been choseni and the preliminary steps for the building have been com menced.

TOM PEARCE AT ]JALLARIAT. The Dallarat Courier writes:-On learn ing of the courage and bravery displayed by the young hero of the Loch Ard disas ter, the railway employes of Ballarnt, amongst whom there are a number of " old salts," determined to show their com mendation of his plucky conduct onl that occasion by presenting him with some slight memento, and a most liberal response was made by all connected with the ialla ratbranch of the Department. It was re solved that the presentation should take the form of a locket, with an inscription ; and accordingly on Wednesday week Master Pearce arrived by the afternoon train, ac companied by Mr Emerson, solicitor, of Melbourne, for the purpose of personally receiving the gift. On his arrival he tools up his quarters at Craig's Hotel, and the news quickly getting abroad that he had unexpectedly arrived, there was a largo l'number of interviewers, but with a sailor's characteristic manner, he was rather re served, and ultimately got aiway ...

RAILWAY EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

-RAILWAY .EXTENSION. One of the results of the deputatiojn from the Railway Leagues that waited on the Commissioner of Railways last week, promises to be an elucidation of theintentions of the Government, both in regard to constructing a line and the di rection it should take. It is sufficient that any proposition of public benefit be broached to call into existence a number of similar, if not counter propositons, emanating from parties whose interests are either injuriously affected or appa parently overlooked by the original de sign. So has it been with the railway question in all paris of the colody, and .while it is acknowledged that railway communication is of vital importance to the farming communiity, the "effort oe those who are striving to procure it,. arf otenfrustrated or at any rate impded by the-owiersof the few hoisesin adis t.tnei. directly on the line of rouite,who .hile.they --retend that they may be indivi'cduly injured in their business by l a railwayg yet do thei...

A GOOD EXAMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

A GOOD EXAMPLE,. i One of the most estimable and charming girls I ever knew, says a visi'o: ii the S9ciol vews, never poor, and now holding a posi tion of wealth and inlluence, would" not have-a gay wedding. Hler parents, sensi ble people who loved her dlearly, and could well have afforded to gratify her wishes had she desired display, yielded to what was called her whim in a different direction. She'loved and had been beloved from the age of eighteen and was engaged at twenty one, her lover being still in college. In due time, after his academic honours had been gained, they were married, and in this wise. Due arrangements having been quietly made, the young lady dressed in ordinary attire, escorted by her father, to ' give her away,' accompanied by a younger sister to serve as bridesmaid, walked to the parish church where the expectant bride groom was ready to receive them. There the ceremony was performed, the little party returning to partake of the family luncheon before the we...

THE EASTERN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

TILE EASTEIIN QUESTION. The sanguine expectations to which the intelligence of Prince Bismarck's recent mediatory proposal at first gave rise have now been generally abandoned, and the sceptical ouinion which has supplanted them is lilicly to be confirmed by the com ments of two ]Berlin journals. bolh enjoying more or less the confidence of the Govern ment. Ilowever well intended the Ger man Chancellor's proposal may be, they ap prehend that the obstacles in the way will prove insuperable. Even the unrivalled diplomatic shill of a Bisnmarck, it is argued, cannot but lind itself utterly at a loss to reconcile two such irrcconcila?ly hard facts as the Treaty of San Stefano and the Blritish interests of the Dardanelles and Asia Minor. It is impossible for a diplo matist to undo the treaty already concluded and what statesmen can presume to dis pute the importance of the Straits, and of Asia Minor, to England ?

THE RUSSIAN ARMY AND THE BRITISH FLEET AT CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

THE RUSSIAN A.RMY AND THE BRITISH FLEET AT CONSTAN TINO1'LE. Although the Russian troops have not actually occupied Constantinople, it appears that the town is full of Russian ollicers and soldiers. A oorrespondent of the Cologne Gazette, writing from )'era at the end of March, says that numbers of Russians are to be seen in the principal streets and shops, and that it is now very diflicult to obtain furnished lodgings, as most of them have been let to the Russian officers. The prices of provisions, too, are rising, owing to the great demand for them in the Russian c:amps outside the city. Mr Layard has had to make a trip to Ismid in the English despatch boat (which was gaily decorated, and bore the Russian flag in honor of the visit of the Grand Duke Nicholas), two of the English ironclads there having suffered much damage in the late storms. It is stated that the harbour of Ismid is unsafe, and that the British fleet will have to be brought into the harbour of Constantinople to se...

PLOUGHING IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 July 1878

PLOUGHiSG IN SOUTHEAUSTra LIA. At Kapunda, South Australia, a trial of a four-furrow plough, took pl?ce on; mcth ultimo. The plough says tie Kapunda Herald, "is so constructed with patent overhead gearing which raises the plough completely out of the ground at the headlands that it can be* turned in its own length with the great- R et ease. It is constructed with four large wrought-iron wheels that can be - raised by a movement of a handle so as to allow the plough to work at any: required depth; or reversing will raise the plough entirely of the ground,when it can be easily be removed from place I to place on its own wheels. The inven- I tor claims for this plough the following I adxiant?ges:--' First, the plough on ordinary' land turns four furrows ot the usual yidth and depth, with six horses, and only one man; second, that this plough ill-work lighter than two ordi nary double-iurrow ploughs, as all the weight is borne or carried by the wheels, and the only resistance which the ...

We may nlaugh at all the terror, Loving still the cloudy clime;. Feeling that the clouds are only. - For a very little time Stormy trumpet, savage anthem, In their awfulness sublime. Having on the poor compassion; Turning no one from the door; Dropping nurture in their thin palms That implore a little store, Till the W\nter wail of Nature Dies, in light, along the shore. So we may take very revel In the storms that round us dart, Full of God's great clouded glory On tile mountain, ill the mart, While, in spite of roseless Winter, Summer blooms within the heart ! W.
