COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 November 1877

COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. The weather still continues dry and warm without the slightest indication of rain, and vegetation is consequently being much af&cted. ???TheSJcountry during the last few weeks has assumed quite a parched appearance. At this season of the year, when wheat is just ripening, the want, of moisture is a serious calamity. Owing to this want, many of the wheat crops in this distridt have failed and it has been necessary to cut them for hay. It is thought that only about a quarter crop will be realised this year. About Clarendon crops are reported as looking well not withstanding the absence of rain. About Gundagai they in many instances have been cut for hay. About Goul burn district and towards the metropolis they are in for ward condition and looking well. The traffic in wool on the line continues to be heavy ; and the extension to Cootamundra must be considerably increasing the supply in our metropolitan market, as much of it, without railway c...

ANSWER TO "BEAUTIFUL BROWN EYES." [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 November 1877

ANSWER TO 'BEAUTIFUL BROWN EYES.' By Lusiier. The spooney man, who talks of eyes That were so soft and brown, Should leave off studying the skyies, And ' knock about' our little town ! If brown eyes make him feel so queer While walking out with «T ane or Sally, Why let him take to grog or beer, Or go'in for the bowling alley ! ' It's dreadful when a fellow goes And talks of skyies, and eyes, and beams, And dreams, and streams ; I don't suppose, Ite knows (poor chap) how odd it seems ? If he's dreadfully in love, And scorns to take his reg'lar victuals, Why dont the idiotic cove Go in for porter and for skittles 1 There's many a jolly pub in town Where he might spend a happy night, And get quite drunk for half-a-crown, And smoke and 'blow' and 'cusss' and fight; Oh ! isn't this more rational, And better for our little town ? Than, getting spoonsey on a ' gal' Because her eyes are soft and brown 1 Then; keep you pecker up, old man, never mind the ' star of love !' I take ' three star'...

POETRY. BEAUTIFUL BROWN EYES IN THE MOONLIGHT. (Republished by request.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 November 1877

POETRY. ' I BEAUTIFUL BROWN EYES IN THE MOONLIGHT \ By Gusheb. ' (Itcpublushcd by requesl.) In days long past, that like a dream , Still haunt me wheresoe'er I stray, I've wandered by the running stream ' In that dear land so far away ; I've watched the dreamy moonbeam lend A fairy charm to wood and rill, And seen the star of love descend Behind the elm trees on the hill. And, ah ! I was not all alone — A graceful form was there to charm ; A little heart beat near my own ; ? ' A soft white hand was on my arm ; While moonbeams (lingering to caress The gently parted lips) looked down, And met the radiant loveliness Of eyes that were so soft and brown ! I thought that ne'er again for me p Would eyes like those so softly beam ; { A form like that I ne'er might see | Except in some bewitching dream. I I deemed that ne'er again the light \ Of love would beam in other eyes ! \ The star that was so softly bright I thought would never more arise. But, far away from that sweet isle, Beneath A...

Changes in BusiNEss.^The extension of tho railway to Cootamundra has effected dome changes in business relations and '' localities, and brought with it an increase of business places. The changes and increases have occasioned tho erection of new buildings; and if the town ..continues much, longer to make the rapid Strides it has done for tho past tew months, there wfli soon occur a scarcity of eligible sites.

Economy in Husbandry. — The intro-, duction of machinery with a view to econo mising the labour of the husbandman should be welcomed in a district such as this, where agriculture is the predominant pursuit. We are glad to inform our readers that a valuable machine — a combined thresher and cleaner— has been introduced by Mr. W . Curry, oi Lagoon Creek, which he intends to throw open to the service of farmers in the neighbourhood of Coota mundra, Wallendbeen, and Lagoon Creek; and it is to be hoped that his enterprise will be rewarded with liberal patronage. By co-operation amongst the local yeo manry a great deal might be done to im prove the process of tillage and facilitate harvesting operations ; and thus would their prospects be bettered and the permanent settlement of the district in agricultural pursuits be promoted. Mr. tiurry?s thresh ing machine, we .understand, was one of the prize-winners at the Great CenteniaJ Exhibition lately held at Philadelphia ; is capable of: doing...

CUNGEGONG RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 20 November 1877

CUNGEGONG RACES. According to advertisement the races came off on the course at Cungegong on Saturday last. The day was very favourable for out door amusements, and a good many persons availed themselves of the opportunity thus afforded for a day's recreation. Some slight error occuring in the advertisement as to the publication of programme occasioned a mis apprehension as to the day, and probably the attendance was somewhat effected thereby. The management of the different events was under the suppervision of stewards appointed on the ground, who succeeded in giving general satisfaction, and everything passed off agreeably. A slight inconvenience was caused by the absence of a publican's booth from the ground, a circumstance which is in deed to be wondered at, considering that this caterer for public requirements is usual ly lucratively remunerated. Below, are the names of the winners of the principal events of the day : — Maiden Plate of 3 sovs. ; one mile, one event; catch weigh...

The elections are now virtually over, and the new Parliament will be called toge ther, provided there is not to be a further proroguation, this day se'imight, for the dispatch of business. With what dispatch, however, they will go about their busi ness, we would be foolish to hazard an opinion. Nor is it a very easy matter to compute the state of parties m the House. It cannot be expected that it will have reached the ancient Roman standard of perfection. On the contrary, we are of opinion that the House will be found very complicated and difficult to manage. A third party is inevitable. The feeling in reference to the veteran leaders, who have grown old in the service of the country, is that they should no longer be the only le&dei's in the House ; and, as a conse q^$ee of this feeling, we suppose, an independent party will be formed, with perhaps Mr. Farnell as their recognised leader. A coalition between the two chivalrous knights cannot under any cir ^ cumstances be look...

Cungegong. — The petition which we printed in our last, praying for a crossing on the line, has been forwarded to the minis ter. It was drafted on Monday morning, ; conveyed for signature and returned to the meeting of the Vigilance Committee on Tuesday evening. Concert, &c. — We would again remind our readers of the approaching concert on behalf of the Catholic Church of Cootamun dra. The chief attraction of the programme will be the sketches of Irish wit and humour by J. G. O'Ryan, Esq., Barrister, who, we' believe, is very entertaining in his special ? line; but besides the sketches, there is to be a good selection of musical and. literary contributions by some of the very best local talent, and by visitors whom it will doubt less be a pleasure to hear. By the pro gramme it will be seen that the concert is to take place on the. 26th instant—next Mon day (not the 24th, as originally intended).

How a Recent Candidate Treated his Friend. — One of the candidates at the recent election met one of his friends at an hotel in . Cooma-stroet, Yass, a day or two before the ^ nomination took place, and saluted him iu his usual style, with 'Well whow are you?' j lie then asked him to havo a drink, and' to bring his friend, a stranger standing by, with him. His friend replied, ' This gentleman is no friend of mine.' 'Ah well it doesn't matter,' said the candidate, 'bring him too.' Tlio trio went into the bar, the candi date called for the three drinks and then ho should treat the pub. also. After the drinks wero obtained, the would-be member began to search his pockets, and oxclaimed, with disgust to himself, that he left home without any silver. He then turned to his friend saying, ' ' Youhave 2/-in your pocket, haven't you,' when it turned out that the friend had also left home without any silver.

Sir, — I do myself the honour to forward you a few notes on the mineral resources of this district, and on the progress made in mining enterprises since my former visit. ' Adelong, no doubt, can lay claim to be one of the oldest and most permanent quartz mining districts in this colony. The Great Victoria G. M. Company, which obtained the Government reward of £1000, for having obtained payable gold at a depth of over 800 feet, has lately erected a twelve -horse power engine ; the shaft is substantially skidded, and cages substituted for buckets.

WOLLONGOUGH. ( Correspondent Ihivrarujoncj An/us. ) Wollox gotj g ir no doubt is almost, if not quite, a terra incoym'ta to most of tho readers- of the Argus. I must inform them that it is situated about 120 miles almost due west of Young, lying- on a portion of that tract of the low lying country, com monly known as the Levels. It is in the centre of a large squatting district; agri culture not having as yet made any great progress in the immediate neighbour hood, although, nudging from the specimens of vegetables grown in the garden of the Wollongough Hotel, and some oats in a paddock contiguous to the house, there can be no doubt in my opinion that tho hind hereabouts is eminently fitted for agricul ture. The road from Young' is none of the liveliest. . There are two or three routes, con cerning the respective eligibility of each of which much difference of opinion exists. The route whereby I arrived hither is, as I saw it in wet weather, simply execrable, al most impassable. Aft...
