NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 July 1868

NEW 0SO?1'1 WALES. The Governmenit .have dbtained c a loan of £350;,000 in the local money market on annual Treasury Bills at about 44d. per cent. Another loan for a similar amount is advertised. These facts speak much for.the confidence felt in the security of Government sfock. At Mudgee, on the 11th instant, a series of atrocious and appalling murders were committed by a Chinaman, whose name and whereabouts are not yet known to the po.ice. It appears the mis .creant entered Lee's store, at Ironbark, and asked for some food ; he then murderously assaulted Mr. Lee, whose son, a courageous little fellow only nine years of age, caught the Chinaman by the hair of his head. He was immediately stab bed. Both father and son died of their wounds. The mur.ferer then entered the house, and killed a little girl aged seven, and stabbed another :se riously, who,'however still survives. He then pilundered the house, and made his escape.

GERMAN IMMIGRATION. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 July 1868

GERMAN IMMIGRATION. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, In your last issue there appeared aletter'upon the above named subject, the sentiments con tained in which I have much pleasure in endor sing, as I believe if the Government of this Co lony will only act liberally, Germans could be induced to leave the other colonies and make this their home, the consequence of which would soon be felt. . I feel assured they would be a great. addition and add materially to the pros perity of the Colony. Having lived for nearly twenty. years. among Germans in South Austra lia I will tell you my experience of them as Co lohnists; a more quiet industrious race does not exist, they are excellent farmers, and if there is the slightest chance of obtaining a goodcrop they will worklike slaves for that object. They are first rate vine growers, and in a Colony like this wherie the vine grown in such luxuriousness, and reaches such perfection, wine with their aid w ouldsoon become one of the exports of the...

SUMMARY FOR THE EUROPEAN MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

S Ut- MMA c RY F O R TH~ EUBOP -A MIAIL. We have been favored by the arrival of the English Mails early in the month, and are somewhat better enlightened as to the working of the new postal' system. At present we are subordinate to the Indian Postal accomodation, but it does seem most injurious to Colonies so vast in extent, so productive, and such impor ters as well as exporters to learn that, the dispatch of the Indian Mail - whichinclude that to the Australian Colonies, takes place one day before the arrival of the in coming Mail, and that the express by Marseilles departs four days after the re ceipt of the commercial correspondence generally transmitted by it, so that mer chants at a distance from London are bound under the most favorable conditions to reply by return of post. With an import and export trade re presenting sixty-eight millions of- money, a population of three millions, rapidly increasing, some sacrifice should be made by the Imperial Post Office Authorities to m...

SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

SOCIAL. The terrible gales that have. prevailed along the coast during the last month have been productive of serious and fatal accidents among shipping--and -have. sent. sorrow and- deso lation into many a home. Seldom, or never before in the history of the Colony have so many and such fatal casualties occurred, in so short.a space of time. Since our last sum mary no fewer than three total wrecks have -taken place upon our coasts acc ,mpanied in two instances with great loss of life. We give briefly the particulars. On the 7th Juhe the Emily, a schooner belonging to this port, and owned by a person named Harford, sailed for the Irwin, where she arrived a -few days after. On the 14th June, Sunday, she sailed from the Irwin for Fremantle. For several days after there was heavy weather from the N. W., and 4t~ Emily not arriving at the time she vnigbt have been expected, fears were experienced for her safety. It was 'hoped however that Harford, the master, a known careful mai, had run ...

TEN YEARS MARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

TEN. YEARS MARRIED. "Are you going to the lecture, Henry ?" I said, as I saw my husband one evening putting on his overcoat after tea. ""Yes," was the reply. " wish you would take ,mr," I an swered. "Really, Mary,. I think home is the proper place for a mother." " But one of my sisters woul~d look after the children. I do so want to hear this great lecturer." "To tell the truth, I have but one ticket," was the reply, as he went out of the door; " and I don't think I can afford to buy another." My husband and I had been married for several years. Before the marriage he had been unusually attentive, even for a lover, and if another gentleman spoke to me he was jealous. When there was a lecture or concert anywhere he always took me. If I was invited to a party he was only too glad to attend me. But now, " Parties are a bore," he says; "he can't think why women wish to go to them." Then he was all affection, now he acts as if it would lower his dignity to show his love to me or my child...

THE WEATHER [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

* THE WEATHER hass been eeivelsy stormny. Great quantities of rain have fallen, and much damage has been done to crops sown on low wet lands. Farniing operations have been completely at a standstill, and heavy traffic all but stopped. On the whole, however, reports speak favor ably of the condition of most of the crops. and feed is abundant. At the Port the boisterous weather has caused great delay in the discharge and ship ping of cargo, and the necessity of an artificial harbor has been greatly felt, many of the merchants being quite out for weeks of goods, Which are lying on board but cannot be landed.

THE STORY-TELLER. THE STAR OF DESTINY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

THE STORY-TELLER. THE STAR OF DESTINY. The voyage has been successful, and the. good ship Ariadue, bound for Cal cutta, leaped over the blue waves as she rapidly neared her destinued port. She was one ofa fleet of transports, conveying troops to the different stations along the coast. It was a beautiful sight as the white sails of the gallant merchantman flitted by the feathery lines - of palms or deep mango trees, which skirted the banks of the noble river; and Captain Vivian stood on the deck beside his young and beau tiful wife, as the strange and oriental scene greeted the eyes of the ocean-tossed wanderers. " How beautiful, Frederic !" said the lady, as she leaned on the arm of her com panion, "we shall surely be as happy in this gorgeous land- as in Old England." "I shall be happy wherever my Julia is," replied the young officer, gallantly raising the taper fingers, which rested on his arm, to his lips.

PUBLIC WORKS [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

PUBLIC WORKS so far as tenders go, are looking up. A tender has been accepted to. erect some Government offices at.Albany for £4184 18s. 9d., and also a tender to erect a- bridge over the Avon at NIortham for £840. Tenders are invited for other work, as will be seen in another column. The Town Hall at Perth progreses slowly but promises to be a handsome structure. We hope it will last long enough to be useful. The feeling in favor of reproductive public works strengthens, and it is certain almost that a question will be put to the Governor during the present Session of Council, as to his inten tions respecting a loan for the construction of a Harbor, and Tramways or Railways. It is the duty of the Governor in deference to the almost universal wish of the colonists to in troduce the matter to his Council, and propose that a scientific Engineer he obtained to give his opinion on, and draw up estimates for the construction of the works thought most neces sary. If the Governor neglects ...

THE REVENUE. To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

THE REVE IUE. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Referring to my letter of the 4th instant, on the Government accounts for the past year, I beg to resume my analysis of them; but first previous to doing so, let me point out an error in the quatterly statement of the 31st March, 1867, the addition is wrong by £36, the total is set downi at £7622 16s. 3d. whereas according to the figures it should be £7658 16s. 3d. it may be an error of the printing, if so, it shews a laxity in the correction' of the proof, or from what ever cause it.arises, trifling as it is, it shews a want of proper attention. The Imperial contri bution for magistrates and police is debited £13,726 13s, 2d. being £1226 13s. 2d. over the £12,500, which I take as being a short payment of the previous year, which would increase the surplus of that year, and convert the apparent surplus of £960 14s. 2d. in 1867 into a deficit of £265. 19s. Od. In my previous .letter I shewed that five items in the accounts swallowed up....
