The Horsham Times. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1882. The Opening of Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 28 April 1882
PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1882. The Opening of Parliament. THE speech delivered at the opening of Parliament, on Tuesday last, was one of an eminently practical character, inasmuch as it embodied measures such as the exigencies of the colony de- mand. The last session was necessarily limited in its duration, and there was not that ample opportunity afforded for the transaction of business as could have been desired, that disadvantage will not operate upon the present occasion. Parliament has been sum- moned before the expiration of the financialyear, and owing to the buoy- ant state of our finances, there will be no necessity to resort to any expedients for obtaining votes in aid, and we know that there is no intention on the part of the Government, and no &nbsp; necessity, so far as the colony is con- cerned, for the imposition of additional taxes. Under these favourable circum- stances, while the colony is prosperous, our revenue flourihing, our...

NHILL. April 24th. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 28 April 1882
(From our own Correspondent,) April 24th. &nbsp; Early on Saturday morning the long &nbsp; wished for rain set in, and continued to &nbsp; pour down gently to 12 a.m., when it &nbsp; slacked off during the afternoon, &nbsp; from about 9 p.m., acontinuation &nbsp; of showers prevailed through the &nbsp; night; also on Sunday afternoon &nbsp; some smart showers fell, not sufficient as yet fallen, however, to &nbsp; be of any service in filling tanks and &nbsp; dams, but will enable farmers to pro- &nbsp; ceed with ploughing up new lands, as &nbsp; before it was almost impossible for a &nbsp; plough to penetrate the soil. Many &nbsp; farmers have a portion of their wheat &nbsp; planted and will receive the benefit of &nbsp; the rain. Numbers of them have been put to great inconvenience by having &nbsp; to cart water from a distance both for &nb...
Revolting Scene. BRUTALITY OF A FATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 28 April 1882
Revolting -Scene. o0 BRUTALITY OF A FATHER. Considerable excitement was occasioned in the vicinity of Railway Place, Sand- ridge, on Sunday by the screams of murder issuing from a dwelling house. Two gentlemen, who were passing the place at the time, have favoured us with the particulars. They heard the ter- rified screams of a woman and child in- side of the house, and at once tried to open the front door, but it was closed. The cries from the inside in- creased and both gentlemen rushed &nbsp; &nbsp; round to the rear, and, finding the back door also locked, they fearing that murder was being done, forced the door open. On stepping in side they found a girl lying on the floor, She was bleeding from a wound in the back of the head, and her father was standing near her, evidently very much surprised and agitated by the appear- ance of the two visitors. They asked what the screaming meant, and then ascertainied from the mother, who was lying on her bed suffering from ...

COVE. April 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 2 May 1882
- COVE. (From our own Corrcspondent.) April 26. The long drought has at last broken and2 we have received the benefit of some refresh ing showers, but hardly sufficient as yet to start ploughing niw land. If we could have a good thunder stoim followed by heavy rain it would prove to be very acceptable as many of our farmers hate still to go to long dis tancos' to replenish their water supply. \Ve have no publicreservoir of water in this parish, and were it not for being allowed access to-tw'-I10 section reserves by the sluatters for the purpose of obtaining it, I do not know what we should do. The opening ceremony of our new institute at Lillimur is.to take place on the Queen's birthday;l I .have been informed that the bazaar in'aid of the Church of England at Border Town is also fixed for the same day. If so it will be a great pity unless some understanding is arrived at regarding both events; having them simultaneously will retard the success of both. The committee appointed to ob...

.. RUPANYUP. (From our own Correspondent.) April 20. A most desirable change took placein'the weather last week.. All round this district rain fell abundantly. Since the first settle ment of this locality by farmers, water had never been so scarce as at one time this season. 'However, ourShire Council is up and doing to prevent such a water famine in future. Extensive contracts were let at last meeting to excavatelarge holes,and widen and deepen, various-water channel, &ie. :'The'Rer. MI'Jaicksoe a lecture, proposed some time ago, is to be delived here on Tues day eveninug, subject-" Courtship and Marriage." Why the time honored "love" is omitted I know not. The lecture ought to be very opportune now, because the nurn ber of marriages of late has been very few;, p'robably the late droaught was the cause. At all events our farmers have altered the old p'roverb about the happy bride that the "sun 'uhines on," prefe5 ingthe one "the rain falls An old man named Dodds, a' brickma...

SiWARRACKNABEAL., (From our own Correspondent.) April 29. On Saturday evening the 22nd inst. Mr. T. Clark, sear., of Cannum, came into the town ship for 'a lead of water, with a dray: con taining a large tank, drawn by two horses: It appears that, owing to the rain, the bank of the creek was exceedingly slippery, and one of the horses falling was the cause of Mr. Clark bein, jirked forwards, and as the tank slipped at the .same time, it was a miracle he was not seriously injured. On Tuesday at the Police Court before Messrs. J. .Lyle, and J. Kelsall J'e.P. Thomas Dtffnily was brought up and two charges of robbery were preferred jagainst him. ' Thefirst. as for stealing clothes, from the house of Mr. Pannovitch to which he -pleaded guilty.

MELBOURNE WOOL AND PRODUCE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 2 May 1882
MELBOURNE WOOL AND PRODUCE S MARKET. TIIE AusnarA"LAsr MORTGAGE AND AGENCY CooPAsee LnrUED report: Vool.-We offered a small catalogue at auction on Friday last, and disposed of almost every lot at fall prices, quality con sidered;competition was very active, and in all descriptions we have to report a firm market, Scoured Wools finding buyers at highly satisfactory values. In view of the arrival of the Darling Wools, no long delayed, it is probable that during the next few weeks there will be more business in this staple than is usoal at. this time of the year, and we doubt not a fair demaud will be experienced. Sheepskins are rather weaker, and except in the case of more than ordinary fine lots. lastweeks' prices have been barely maintained in Greenskins. Dryskins continue to be much neglected, the rate of values at which alone sales can be effected, being relatively much lower than those of fresh slaughtered skins. Our qootations are fron. 2s Gd to'3s Sd., and up to as each for be...
