THE EARLY CLOSING ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 7 August 1869

THE EARLY CLOSING ASSOCIATION. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) Sir,—Perhaps you will excuse me for craving space to grumble at the utter in difference displayed by all classes in our little town towards the movement for the education of the young, so promisingly commenced by the Early Closing Association. We had fair promises of support and encouragement to begin with, but alas ! like all other good projects in Echuca, it is likely to pass into oblivion; for, although it is perfectly well understood that Monday nights have been fixed as our evening, not only for encouraging the attendance at the school, but also to instruct and entertain the grown people of the town, it is completely forgotten or ignored by those who ought to be its chief supporters. Now, for instance, to-night we have two church meetings, an electioneering arrangement, and a monkey show, and good ness knowswhat attractions gongs and fiddlers may produce besides. We don't object to these meetings in their pl...

BOROUGH ELECTION. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 7 August 1869

BOROUGH ELECTION. fTo the Editor of the Riverine TTernld.) I Sir,—I think the Burgesses owe you many thanks for your advocacy of the infusion of fresh blood into our local representative body 5 and I am surprised that there are only two new men in the field. The Burgesses might, however, be at a good deal of trouble before they obtained a fitter person than Mr II. P. Taylor for one of the nine Councillors. I have indeed heard surprise expressed by maby of the residents that Mr Taylor did not on former occasions offer himself as a candidate, for he has frequently expressed himself desir ous of redeeming the Cruncil from its long continued inertness. Without wishing, as he said on Wednesday evening, in nny way to derogate from the ability of the Town Clerk, I think it is quite time one at least of the Councillors was possessed of sufficient self reliance to form and express opinions of his own at the Council table; and I seriously hope and believe Mr Taylor may, by obtaining the seat ...

Heavy frosts have lately prevailed at night, but there are some indications of a change to wet, which is earnestly desired both by the squatters and agricul turists.

GOOLWA. July 26th. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 7 August 1869

GOOLWA. (FEOSI ODE OWN COltBESroNDENT.) July 26th. The Fire Queen, Captain Hamilton, sailed from Port Victor, on the 19tb instant, for London with about 950 bales of wool, and about a dozen cabin passengers. The Lady Daly, Pickhills master, has just gone up stream with a large miscellaneous cargo chiefly, I believe, for the Darling. An unsuully large number of vessels have been in nnd out of Port Victor lately. They are bad ly in want of an extension of their jetty, and attention has been drawn to it times out of mind, but the Government take no heed. A very numerously signed memorial has been got up showing that the trade of the port is considerably injured by the want of jetty ac commodation, and praying that £10,000 may be spent in providing it. We are still with out rain, and I am told that matters look very blue in the farming districts, and the squatters are complaining greatly. We have had very severe frosts and are anxiously waiting for them to break up. I don't think ice ha...

In pursuanoa of an advertisement oalling the meeting, a very numerous assemblage of the bur gesses met at the Bridge Hotel, on Wednesday evening laBt, to hear Mr Taylor's views on mani-: cipal matters. Mr JameB Symington having been voted into the chair, briefly introduced Mr Taylor to the meeting, and oraved for him a patient hearing. Mr Taylor, who was listened to throughout with marked attention, said that he had come before them to state his views in seeking election as a councillor of the borough. He begged to thank his hearers for having attended in such large numbers. They could all lorn their own opinion of his capabilities, as he hud long been resident among them. Since the establishment of the borough he had carefully, and with deep interest, watohed the general eil'ect of the CouDoil's proceedings; and he regretted to find that, so far from any desire for retrenchment or caving having been shown, there had t ...

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 7 August 1869

£GEVCA, SATURDAY, AUGUST7, 1869. The municipal elections for the Borough of Echuca appear to be exciting more than usual interest. Great efforts are being- made to prevent 53r Taylor's return; but his own friends are not idle, and a very general opinion is entertained that he will be elected. While all this canvassing is going on, the electors cannot have better advice than that given by Air Symington, who presided at Mr Taylor's first meeting at the Bridge Hotel, namely that every man should judge for himself, and vote for the candidates he conscientiously believes to be most worthy of his support. People should not allow themselves to be influenced by onesided and interested state ments to the prejudice of any candidate. None of thein are strangers to the community, and every ratepayer is competent to arrive at a just estimate of their merits. We do not intend to institute any comparisons. We meiely contend that new representatives ought to be sent, periodically into the Council, ...

HAY. Tuesday, 3rd August. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 7 August 1869

HAY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Tuesday, 3rd August. Hay is all alive. Great preparation for the Show which comes off on the 4th. All the hotels are crowded, and many private resi- dences are given up to accommodate ladies who would otherwise be   unaccommodated through the overcrowding of the hotels. The great event of this day is a "squatters' ball" held at host Cox's. The affair cer- tainly reflects great credit on the stewards, and especially on Mr. Cox, who gave every satis- faction and spared no expense to render the affair a success. The ball-room was most tastefully decorated, and the supper room was all that could be desired; and many of our fair visitors are astonished at the recherchè and tasteful manner in which every thing was got up. A band for the occasion was provided from Sandhurst. So well were our squatocracy pleased with the affair that we may confidently look for an annual gathering of the same sort. August, 4th. This is the great Show day. The t...

THE ECHUCA. WHARF. (To (he Editor of the JRiverine Hcra'd,) Sir,—Will you allow me space for a few lines concerning the disgraceful manner the railway department carries on the stevedore ing on the wharf at Echuca. first, they appoint an ex-Government official to the office, without even consulting the owners or masters of the steamers who have to pay for it. He is allowed to charge any price he thinks fit for the work done without any check whatever, and has a monopoly of the work dope at the wharf. The consequence is the goods are thrown into the boats and barges in any shape, and cargo that is to be landed at wayside places cannot be found, and has to be carried to the boat's destination and landed on the way back, causing a delay of from a week to a fortnight to the loss of the owners. Last year there was more paid for claims for cargo that was broken than has been paid altogether since the river naviga tion opened, when the loading and unloading was done by private parties, und...

He says " he has stated facts which cannot be disputed." Now, I beg to dispute nearly the whole of his statements. In the first place, I defy him to produce a map shewing his allotments, without the road al luded to as dividing the two sections selected by him being also plainly defined thereon, and I say further that the " friend" he ...
