PARLIAMENTARY. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 July 1885

Mr Graves said on Tuesday night,' that the two previ..us Government speeches were remarkable for a large number of Bills, but the present speech. contained only eight measures. He hoped that these Bills would not be fired-through the House as on previous occasions, but that they would criticise. Hon.! members had stated that they should,havo no politics in the H -se, and that they should, go on quietly as they -were going. Statesmen in other countries held different views, and he quoted the opinions of a great states man as a proof. He had n-ver be fore experienced such silence' as was evinced by members and Mlinisters, and for information they had to look to the Press. The Government could thr6w- out feelers in that way to tdst thr puiblic opinion, anni could, or could not, accept the -responsibility of those matter.4.' The Land Act .actually ap pearediline for line and letter for letter in tlhe P.ess and was discussed before they'knew anything about- it. In re gard to the Soudan b...

- Fatal DEive trom Brooklyn IBridae. is A MA1N JUMPS 136 FEET. It had been announced for sereral days that a teacher of swimming of the name of Odlum, meditated a dive info the East River from Brooklyis-bridge." The police accordingly" took precautions to 'prevent the rash enterprise from being attempted, Odlum carried out his intention by a ruse.

The roadwayisprotectedby an iron lattice work, which the swimlner. climed" with skill and -speed.

She has. for years been wear ilu these paper-bags, such as the grocers use,'for bustles. The Iasper is stiff, ond sticks out splendidly, and imakes the dress look well. Last Sunday mornink, while she .was dresshig; her son got into the room, and blew the paper-bag full of wind, and tied a string around the mouth of it, and left it in the chair. The good lady took It and tied it on, and dressed herself for .church.

Marraweeney. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 July 1885

w1sarrasweeney. (FROK OUR OWN CORRKSPOD ENT.) I have nothing particular in the shape of news from this district, and as I am not an adept at manufacturing any, I am puzzled what .to write about. I believe whln you publish the next rainfall froni this district, it will be seen that there has been a great downpour for the month' of May, consequently farmers are in many instances rather backward with their cropping. Ploughmen are very hard to be got, in fact any class of workmen are not plentiful at present. Occasionally we are visited by a few of the class commonly known'nas " bummers," looking for work and praying not to find it. 1 was visited by one of this class a few days :ago, who appeared ina .very dilapidated condition, especially his .nether garments. I mven tured to remark-that from the appearance of his dress, he must be of unsteady habits. By way of excusel he put the following doggerel verses intomy-head: In the parislh of.

THE provisional committee ; of the Euroa District Agricultural and Pas toial Society meet on Tuesday next, when business of great importance will be transacted. Over Ferenty lists have been distributed during the month, and an energetic canvass of the whole shire has been instituted. What the finan cial result will be' it is almost inipos sible to determine, but that it will be eminently satisfactory there., is little reason to doubt. Some misapprehension seems to have existed as to when moneys will have to be: forthcoming, but it may safely be assumed' that it will be several months at least before it is required actually in hand, the pro mise of a sum being all that is neces sary to enable the managemeint to fairly estimate the probable amount of Support.

The Snowy River Gold Rush. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 July 1885

The Snowy River Gold   Rush. The mining warden at Bairnsdale wires to the Department of Mines as follows:— " I have seen two letters from Orbost, dated the 26th inst., about the Black Watch diggings. One states that the writer had just returned from there, and that he saw nothing to   justify the rush. The prospectors get little gold— two pieces, 3dwt. and 2dwt. 9gr., and some small gold. No one got more than colour. There are no stones on the ground, and as everything will have to be packed for rough riding it will be madness, in my opinion, for anyone to attempt to go to the diggings unless he is prepared to hold out for a month or two. The other writer   confirms this statement, and adds that several old miners are determined to give the place a month's trial. The rush for miners' right still continues, 170 having been issued from the treasury here. About forty men have left by steamer for the Lakes Entrance to proceed via Orbost to the digg...

Fear is scarcely so important a factor here where six shooters are so plentiful ? ????? The recent rains have thoroughly soaked the ground and as a result the crops are looking remark ably well.       A concert was held in the Upotipotpon West State school, No. 2631; on the 12th instant.
