3.ISCELLA-SEOUS. Although cattle generally are in a very healthy condition on the New South ,Wa!es side d6f the. Murray, numerous cases of pleuIb have (states the Albury Bann.-) been discovered on the Victorian bank. Several bul. Iceks and cows affected with the di sease are said to be running just nooi on Wodonga flats. The latest thing in railway projects is, s;ates the Dunedin Age, a railway from England to the Cape of Good Hope. The completion of the tunnel between Calais and Dover would, of course, be necessary, and then an undersea tunnel would be required to connect Europe and Africa at Gibral tar. The rest of the line would, it is said, be comparatively easy. From the Cape to Western Australia the distance is not very great, and by a trans-continental railway in Australia, Melbourne and Sydney wo Id bei brought to within three weeks' journey of London. Of course no company would venture on such a scheme, but those who have devised it talk of its being carried out as a nation...

SWAN HILL. July 24, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 26 July 1878

SWAN HILL. From our own correspondent   July 24 1878. The number of uncommmercial travellers, both on horseback and foot,   passing through here, render us just now somewhat lively, and a stranger visiting Swan Hill would never imagine that we are occasionally bordering on a chronic stato of idiotcy from want of excitement. Tenders have been called for our wharf, and our worthy Shire Secretary is now engaged hero with the Engineer in taking levels, &e., so that the under taking may shortly expected to be au fait accompli. I was much amused not long since when reading your journal to perceive that the Bishop of Ballarat's coachman considered he was part and parcel in the acts of his employer. He is evidently not singular in his ideas. Speaking of the proposed railway to a late visitor. from Kerang, he very promptly replied,' " I have seen the Minister of Railways, and we intend to bring the railway to. Kerang as soon as possible, and we may ultimatel...

Instead of receiving Brown the banker's son in the parlour, look out for Bill Burns, the blacksmith's son, as he goes home from. work.; kiss his dirty face through a broken pane of glass in the kitchen window, and after awhile, when he learns his trade and you know your business, getmarried go tohousekeeping by yourselves,, help et h other, live happy, raise a family.that will be an honour to your names and a credit to them selves, die happy, and the angels will not turn their backs upon you up there.
