AND SwA" HILt. GAZETTE. r PUBLSHED WEEKLY. KEKANG, AUGUST 23, 1S7Y. THE BUDGET. TuE financial statement as delivered by. Mr Berry last.week, is notideable tor the simple and straightforward man ner with which it was given. So cus tomary has it been for these annual statements to contain a policy that the present one seems to a c-rtain extent devoid of interest. As a siriiple state ment of facts and figures it is one to which exception can scarcely be taken. The revenue and expenditure of the past year is given, and a comparison made with last year's estimates. The expected receipt and proposed expen dittire is alto stated, and there the matter ends; no levying of fresh taxa tior. is proposed, though . there can be no doubt the time is not far distant when additional taxation must be im posed. The most noticeable item in the Treasurer's statement is ;the pro posal to obtain from the English market a sum £9,ooo,ooo forpublicworksof this £;,ooo.ooo is principally' for railway purposes....

ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 23 August 1878

AcCIDENT - On Tuesday as a man named Burns, from the Murrabit, was about to feed his horse in Cullen's yard he met with a nasty accident. It seems he had just taken the winkers off the horse without taking it out of the dray when the animal moved forward, pos- sibly with the attention of getting at some grass the other side of the fence. Burns tried to stop the horse, and while in the act of doing so fell under the wheel of the dray which passed over his leg fracturing it above the ankle. He was immediately attended to by Dr. Hanson and the fracture reduced. After Burns fell the horse kept on its way, and in its endeavours to get at the grass demolish- ed the fence. CONSTABLE ARSTRONG - We regret to learn that a serious accident has hap- to the indefatigable officer. About four or five days ago, while riding in the vicinity of Boort, he was precipitated from his horse with such force as to render him insensible for some time.

SELECT POETRY. THE SABBATH BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 30 August 1878

SELECT POETRY, THE SABB1T `E~ILS. Oh, sweet the sound-of.Sabbath bells - Falls on the ear and softlyt.ells In thrilling music to'tie'heart, " Bright tales of home and happiness.: Now loud, now dimly comes the sound, Borne on the breeze and'echoing'rbund, Proclaims the hour when in the house Of God must meet the worshippers ; Their music cheers and to the heart; An impulse their soft tones impart That wakes within a kindred flow Of sounds that vibrato tremblingly. Those bells that were so dearly loved In childhood's days-those bells have moved Our souls to tears, when o'er the grave Of friends theyhave chimed mournfully ; They tell of the wearied spirits' flight From this cold world to the realms of light They tell of those who are laid in the grave, To wake to a bright futurity. When the bells of our native land.have ceased, To greet our ears, our thoughts at least Will remembrance keep, and bygone days Shall treasured be by memory! \M. Ml. B.

TOWNSHIP RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 30 August 1878

TOWNSHIP RESERVES. ONE of the great drawbacks to a large transmission ot produce from the interior of Australia to the seaboard is the expense of carriage The cost at present by drays is enormous, amount ing almost to prohibition, while the amount of time lost in travelling is no inconsiderable item. Railways when they are constructed present the most speedly means of transit, and though the expense compared with that of dray tralfic is a mere bagatelle, yet when any considerable distance has to be traversed it becomes rather heavy. Nature has not been lavish with us regarding the number of rivers at our disposal for water carriage. Here so much attention has not been turned to that means of transit as perhaps would have been, had our navigable rivers been more numerous. Attention need scarcely be turned towards Ame rica t) see the great commercial ad.. vantage derived from this cheap mode of transit. There the rivers are the great highways towards the sea coast. Alongtheriver banks...
