THE PASTORAL TENANTS AND THE LAND ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

THE PASTORAL TENANTS AND THE LAND ACT. A petition, which we are informed has al ready been numerously signed, is about to be presented to Parliament praying on behalf of the pastoral tenants for a reduction of the rental proposed by the new Land Bill, and also for the protection of their frontages, etc. The following are the principal clauses of the petition:— " Your petitioners beg to submit that the present rentals of stations are far in excess of their value. In 1862, when wool and sheep were realising very high prices, and the sta tions included several millions of acres of choice lands which have since been alienated, a rental of 8d per sheep, and 3s per head of cattle, amounting in the aggregate to £208,930 per atmum, was deemed sufficient; this rental having been fixed by the Govern ment after careful valuations. " The present rentals amount to £177,643 sterling per annum, so that it will be clearly evident to your honorable House that taking into consideration the great decl...

CHARGE OF STEALING A CHEQUE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

CHARGE OF STEALING A CHEQUE. In the Sandhurst police court, on Thurs- I day, 1'rederick Hutchinson Twinge was charged with stealing a valuable security, to wit, a banker's cheque, drawn by P. 0. Pierce upon a bank at Echuca, of the value of L10 Is, the property of one Patrick Doyie. Mr Brown appeared for complainan, and Mr Martley for defendant. Mr Brown said the offence was a felony, and quoted the English act bearing on the subject, and showed that the colonial act was the same. The letter containing the cheque was given by Mr Pierce to Mr P. Landy to be handed to the railway guard, S, T. Maxwell, who was to deliver it to either Mr Doyle or Mr Twigge. He gave it to the latter in the presence of the former; and it appears that Mr Twigge evaded show ing it to Mr Doyle at his request although addressed to him, and afterwards told him he had paid the money to his own account in the bank. The letter contained, besides the cheque, a scrip and a proxy. Doyie had written to Mr Pierce tell...

THE POISONING CASE AT BAEL BAEL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

TIIK POISONING CASE AT BAEL BAEL. A correspondent from whom we received the particulars which we published in ourissue of tlio 21st inst, sends us the following1:— " I was at Swan Hill when the woman Mor rison was examined. The facts elicited were as nearly as possible what I stated to you. She was committed for trial. She defended herself with great coolness, but broke down when she found the Bench meant to commit her. One thing came out in evidence which I did not know before. The prisoner, it appears, pressed Mrs Perry to take a cup of tea, but on tasting it she found it so bitter that she could not drink it, and asked the prisoner to taste it. This she pretended to do, but did not swallow a drop. What a pity it was not bottled up then and there. Mrs Perry told me that whilst eating the honey the crystals kept getting between her teeth, and tasted so bitter that she only ate very little. The Dunolly paper, from which you gave a quotation, was wrong about Mrs Perry's having been l...

HEAR BOTH SIDES. In REPLY. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

HEAR BOTH SIDES. In Repl\. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) Sir,—Permit me, through the medium of your columns, unwilling ns I am to rush into print, to repiy to that meddling scribbler who has made assertions which he knows full well the whole of the neighborhood can disprove. How my case came into the columns of the " Chronicle" I am at present quite unconscious o.r, it being entirely without my knowledge or consent. At the same time, I must ex- j press my thanks for a true and correct state ment of the faots in connection therewith. Now, as to this personal enemy of mine, "One who Knows," it is evident he does not know the one great truth, " Do ye unto others as ye would they should do unto you." First, he asserts when I took up the land I full well knew it was illegal. This I deny. My application was for another allotment. Finding it had been selected a short time previous, the present allotments in my posses sion were pointed out to me by the gentle man whose duty it was...

RAISING SUNKEN VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

RAISING SUNKEN VESSELS. We mentioned a short time ago that a gentleman resident in Echuca had discovered a new method of raising sunken vessels. Mr R. G. Lewen, who lias an ingenious and strong mechanical turn of mind, and interests himself deeply in all matters connected with the navigation of the river, during a long and wearying confinement to his house, in consequence of a badly fractured leg, con ceived the idea of raising vessels that had sunk in deep water, by a plan of his own. This he has matured, and found on trial to be j eminently successful. We yesterday had an opportunity, in. company with two or three gentlemen, of witnessing an experiment on a boat, sunk in the Murray, with his apparatus The principle is simple in the extreme; and the means employed are remarkably inex pensive. Mr Lewen informs us that the cost of the appliances for raising a vessel of 250 tons would not exceed £1000, and are so dur • able as to be serviceable for many years. The boat experimented on...

The Riverine Herald. ECEUCA, SATURDAY, JULY 31, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

C|e pkrk |i£rali ECEUCA, SATURDAY, JULY SI, 1869. Hen Majesty's present Opposition in Victoria is certainly not the Opposition with which some time ago we found ourselves in accord. It ap pears to have sunk simply into a faction, and to be incapable of anything but the most onesided and prejudiced views. This has been made clearly apparent in the discussion on the Land Bill, during which the most absurd and unjust demands have been made on cbe Government. It ought to satisfy the people of any land to have conceded to them the right of free selection all over the country, on much less liberal terms than the new measure proposes. It is a piivilege, the prudence of granting which might be strongly questioned, since it may, and most probably will, give rise hereafter to grievous complaints of the policy by which it was dictated. However, "the ayes have it," and it would be of little use recording a vote against it But now, while we are legislating for a general distribution of the publi...

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 July 1869

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. The following1 extract from a leading article in the Bendigo Advertiser, on the subject of the approaching Borough Council elections in Sandhurst, is worthy of perusal by the I ratepayers of all boroughs, and we commend it to the "particular attention of those of lEchuca:—"Even if we were disposed to coincide in the opinion—which we do not quite—that the affairs of the Borough Coun cil have been perfectly managed during the last twelve months, we could still believe in the infusion of a little new blood. And should the attempt to infuse a little new blood not succeed, the very opposition, which the old members would have to encounter, would be of infinite service by stirring them to I greater activity in future. The framers of | the Municipal Act, no doubt, saw the necessity of giving the ratepayers an opportunity of changing the constitution of Borough Coun cils once a year, and so preventing their be coming a too happy family by uninterrupted communion of thou...

LECTURE ON "SELF-RELIANCE." A lecture.on the above subject was delivered in the Town Hall, Ecliaoa, on Tuesday even ing last by the Rev J. Dare, of Melbourne. There was a numerous attendance, and the attention paid throughout was of the most marked and enthusiastic character. His Worship the Mayor presided; and on the platform were the T?ev W. H. Fitchett, Dr.! Crossen, J.P., coroner, and F. Payne, Esq. After some introductory remarks, the lec turer entered on the topic of the evening by remarking that the peculiar feature of char acter which he was that evening advocating was strikingly characteristic of the British nation; that, next to the advantages of Christianity, the inherent energy of the Anglo-Saxon race had given it its high posi tion among the nations of the world. He then instanced a number of examples of those, who from humble circumstances in life, had burst from the thraldom and obscurity of their birth, and through energy and industry soared to the highest positions ...

A thunder storm of more than ordinary force broke over the face of the extensive area comprehended in these provinces, and was accompanied with a heavy downpour of rain, which continued for several hours. In this neighbourhood we have had several fine occasional alioavcs since. The change cannot but be productive of great benefit in every direction; and will, no doubt, in a great measure repair the damage done by the continued frosts. The change in the temperature has been very marked, and in those districts in which a late lambing is about to commence, will of course be hailed with great satisf...
