TOWN TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 20 February 1863

TOWN TALK. It is with much pleasure that we record the fact that our old pioneer is back again to reside amongst us. Not this time, however to live on the Plains, but to reside amidst the Highlands, which is a locality we believe much more c??? to his tastes. Mr McMillan was, it is true, was, it is true, the pioneer of this district, and the first man who introduced the caucasian race into Gippsland. He does not, however, appear satisfied with ??? which are placed on Cungmindi. We trust this introduction may prove as prolific as Mr. McMillan's first and that the resources of our mountainous country may be turned to a better account than feeding mobs of wild cattle. We wish Mr. McMillan's project every success.

FEARFUL FLOODS. WITH LOSS OF LIFE AND PROPERTY IN NORTH GIPPSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 20 February 1863

FEARFUL FLOODS.   WITH LOSS OF LIFE AND PROPERTY IN NORTH GIPPSLAND. The long drought which had con- tinued almost uninterruptedly for five months, has been at length terminated by a storm of rain which, for unabated violence and depth of water fallen, stands unequalled in the annals of North Gippsland. On Monday evening, a change of weather, which was so long desired, was apparent, and about night- fall a south-east wind brought the wel- come rain, which gave the assurance that no more dangers were to be antici- pated from the numerous bush fires which were daily taking place in Gipps- land. Fourteen days has scarcely elapsed since it became our painful duty to detail the many serious losses which were occasioned by the extensive con- flagrations which prevailed over the whole face of the country, and we then little anticipated that within so   short a time as has since elapsed, that we should have to report even more serious casualties and losses, involvi...

DONNELLY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 20 February 1863

DONNELLY'S CREEK, (rnoc A connrsPONDENT.) I writo this week with more pleasure than I expected to do. A now reef, the "Victoria," has been discovered, for which a prospecting claim has been registered. Two of the share holders havo been at work four days, and have struck the solid stone, and to-day have seen gold. I am happy to state that I own two shares in it. The reef seems a continua tion of the "Crinoline," and we have traced it for about three miles. It heads nearly north and south, running in the direction of Mount Useful, but I hope it will skirt that hugo mass of rock and earth, as it will be no lazy work to sink on that mountain. This is about all the new finds this week, but quite enough to raise our spirits. The rush to Stringer's is, from all accounts, looking up. I saw a man who came in for letters, and he says that good prospects are being got, and that there is a fair supply of water up the creek, but it drains into the sandy ground as it approaches the flat part of ...

THE MELBOUNRE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

THE MELBOURNE MAIL. In due course the Melbourne Mail, leaving the General Post Office at midday on Monday, should have arrived at Sale on Thursday morning at nine o'clock a.m.; this, however, it was well known could not be the case from the flooded state of the roads, and serious fears weer entertained for the fate of the mailman, who was known to be a bold and fearless rider and who was encumbered with the English mail. John INorris, the mailman, however, arrived by boat at Sale on Saturday at noon, with the mails all right but a little wet, within an hour or an hour and a half after arrival he started back again so as to enable the return mail to be in time to catch the home mail from Melbourne, and by his activity and the despatch of our postmaster little or no inconvenience ensued to any person. Norris says he found no difficulty from the time hie took the mail at the Bunyip on Tuesday morning until he had passed Traralgon on Wednesday. The rain was very heavy, and he then antic...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GIPPSLAND TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

TO TIHE EDITOl OF THE GII'PSLAND TIMES. S?a,-lt is not fairly within the scope of calculation the benefit and advantages that 'would accrue to Gippsland by the formation of an open river (not a canal) from the Nine-milo Beach, at I-Iobson's Bay, up to Sale, thereby uniting all the swamps, and intercepting the rivJrs, creeooks, and gullies in its course, thus diverting all the waters into one channel. Our forefathers seemed to have entei' tained strong opinions as regards rivers, for, when King James threatened to remove the sent of royalty from London, an alderman sarcastically replied, "Surely your Majesty will leave us the river Thames." HIowever, had this colony belonged to the Dutch, a splendid river would have been formed ere this. Nature only requires the art of man to give a direction for the waters to run into one channel. Some of the results would be that steamers conuld run from Sale to Melbourne in ten h.ours; cattle, produce, timber, &c., could be cheaply conveye...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE GIPPSLAND TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

To THE ODITOR OF THE OIP0'PSLAND TIf5ES. Srlt,-From the first publication of the Farmers' Journal I have always regarded it as ant authority of the highest standing on matters pertaining purely to its own peculiar sphere, and very little, if any, inferior to the agricultural journals of either north or south Britain. On the subject of agriculture, and only on that the Farmers' Journal has stood unequalled in Victoria, Now, it appears that, not content with its own peculiar action, it has descended from its high position as a farmers' and gar deners' exponent, and has followed the footsteps of many other periodicals which have existed for a short time. It has left its legitimate course and has adopted politics. In its publication of the 7th instant; instead of dealing with cereals or tubers, it has in both leader and sub leader taken to politics as a substitute for manure. Policy nay be all very good in its way, but it can never make two blades of grass grow where one existed previ o...

THE PORT ALBERT ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

THE PORT ALBERT ROAD. On the full length of this road there is now scarcely a bridge or culvert standing between tihe Hill Top and Port Albert, besides a con- siderable portion of the road being rendered utterly impassable for carriage traffic, without a heavy outlay. The Punt Lane is still covered with water, in some places many feet in depth, and as yet the only means of com- munication kept up between Sale and the Hill Top is by boat. The Sale morass has been covered with deeper water this flood than has been known for years, and it was with much difliculty that Mr. Campbell was enabled to save the cattle which were running there. Both Mr. Campbell and Mr. Montgomery will be losers to some extent, by the drowning of cattle, but we are happy to say that neither one or the other will be so to any thing like the extent at which it was at one time esti- mated. At Longford are still to be found the Port Albert coaches, which, as yet, can neither get backwards or forwards, but must rem...

The Gippsland Times. "EXCELSIOR." FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Times — 27 February 1863

" EXCELSIOIt.' FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27. 1803. WHAT is now to be done with the Gippsland roads? At last this bone of contention between the Government and Gippsland has been plucked from both, and there is no longer a Alain Central Line of Road to fight about. Fort twelve long years has Gippsland been struggling for a fair share of the, funds of the colony for the purpose of having a permanent road constructed between. Port Albert and Sale, but so charily have the grants been given. and so extravagantly have the small sums given been expended, up to this very day we have little to show for some fifty thousand pounds, which has been from time to time expended in patching and botching the Main Gippsland Road. It uow becomes a matter of serious consideration; whether it is really worth while to make this road again. We are perfectly aware that a sufficient sum of money cannot be obtained for the purpose from the Government, who, though they may refund us the amount lapsed out of last year's...

BAIItNSDALE RACES. The first meoting oi the Birnedalo Turf Club. owing tojthe inclemency of the weather on the previous days, partook more of the character of a failure than of a euccess. The ground was very heavy, and few appeared in clined to distress their horses by racing them over ground soddened with three days' rain. Censidering all the disadvantageous circum stances under which the "maiden races" wore run, there was a much better attendance than could have been supposed, and no scarcity of the fair sex were to be complainled of.
