FRIDAY, JULY 17. (Before Messrs. W. D. Campbell, and W. J. E. Wotton.) John Harris was brought up on remand. Sergeant Hitch further deposed : While serving his sentence for drunkenness I asked prisoner to account for the money he had spent in Burrowa after Monday, 6th July ; prisoner said it was money saved by him from last shearing ; that he had it planted in the heel of an old bottle at Costello's place, in a hole in a post in the garden ; prisoner said he went for his plant on Tuesday, and that Mary Costello saw him and spoke to him ; I have since examined Costello's garden ; there is no such post as prisoner described.

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. REUTER'S TELEGRAMS &nbsp; TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATAED PRESS. SINGAPORE—JULY 9. &nbsp; The mail steamship Nubia, from Australia, arrived at Galle on the 7th, PARIS—JULY 8. &nbsp; In the French National Assembly, the debate on the motion introduced by the Legitimists has been brought to a conclusion. When the division was called for, the Left abstained from voting, and the Legitimists found themselves in a minor- ity. The members of the Left expressed regret at the suspension of their nnion with the Legiti- mists, but nevertheless felt it their duty not to record their votes. The motion was consequently rejected by 379 to 80. Subsequently a motion in favour of re-proclaim- ing Marshal MacMahon's powers was submitted to the Assembly and supported by the Govern- ment, but it was rejected by 369 to 331. Ultimately it was resolved simply to pass on to the Order of the Day. 'This resolution was arrived at on a division of 339 to 315, and was consi...

STOCK AND STATION [A. E. MIDDLETON'S REPORT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 18 July 1874
STOCK AND STATION REPORTS. [A. E. MIDDLETON'S REPORT.] Fat Cattle are extremely scarce, and none offer- ing. Really prime bullocks are worth from 20s. per 100 lbs. Store Cattle are much enquired for ; but owners are asking such extreme rates that there is no margin for profit for buyers. In fact, none but weedy and old cattle are to be purchased in the district. The Sheep market is exceedingly quiet, owners waiting to shear previous to sale. Really prime, heavy wethers would sell readily at from 11s. 6d. to 12s. 6d. ; stores, 8s. 6d. to 10s. My sales this week have been as follows :—A &nbsp; &nbsp; few hacks and breeding mares to Mr. John Ken- nedy ; a first-class draught horse, on account of Mr. John McNamara ; and a handsome bull, on account of Mr. Michael Ryan, to R. A. Barber, Esq., at a highly satisfactory rate. I have under offer a superior lot of mixed cattle, also a first-class run, with 10,000 sheep, and hope shortly to report sales. Burrowa, 17th July.

THE STRANGER OF THE BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 18 July 1874
THE STRANGER OF THE BALL. A BALL was about to take place in a small country town on the west coast of Scotland, and as the &nbsp; town boasted only one barber of any eminence, it may be supposed that his hands were full. Indeed Duncan could not by any possibility have got through his business had it not luckily happened that he had just provided himself with an assist- ant. The assistant was from London, though only from an ' establishment' in a lane leading out of Goswell-street. No matter : he was from London ; and the fact was a tower of strength to the concern. The young man was a smart, vain, ignorant, impudent Cockney ; and on finding him- self all on a sudden in such wonderful demand, he gave himself a thousand ridiculous airs, at which even the anxious and expectant, fair ones could not refrain from laughing. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; At the per...

THE MINISTER FOR LANDS ON FREE SELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 18 July 1874
THE MINISTER FOR LANDS ON FREE SELECTION. MR. ROBERT BARBOUR, the saw-mill and steam- boat proprietor on the Murray, has recently visited Sydney for the purpose of instituting legal pro- &nbsp; ceedings against Mr. Ricketson, the pastoral tenant of Baratta run, near Deniliquin. Mr. Bar- &nbsp; bour, our readers will remember, took up land on Baratta as a selector, and Mr. Ricketson demo- lished the houses erected by Mr. Barbour, and took other forcible means to accomplish his eject- ment. Mr. Barbour, while in Sydney, also visited &nbsp; the Minister of Lands (Mr. Farnell), and obtained the following valuable information to Riverina selectors, which he submitted, in the form of a report, to the Deniliquin Free Selectors' Associ- ation, of which he is a member. Mr. Farnell frankly stated that whenever he found a bona-fide selector honestly desirous to fulfil the require- ments of the law, he would support such, and that to the extent of his power. RESIDENCE.—M...

THE BLACK WATTLE.—While according to Mr. &nbsp; Simmons the import of the bark of oaks and hem- lock-spruce into England becomes every year less, and while the import of sumach and gambir does not increase, the annual demand has, since the last 20 years ; become doubled. Probably no other tanning plants give so quick a return in cultiva- tion as our Acacia pycnantha and particularly A. ducurrens. The latter, the Black Wattle is already alluded to in the list of timber trees ; but the following additional notes may further show the importance of this neglected tree. The English price of the bark ranges generally from £8 to £11. It varies, so far as experiments under my direction have shown, in its contents of tannin from 18 to 33 per cent. In the mercantile bark the per- centage is somewhat less, according to the state of its dryness—it retaining about 10 per cent. &nbsp; &nbsp; moisture. Any bare, barren, unutilized places might here be sown most remunerative...
