SWAN HILL. Aug. 5. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

SWAN HILL. , fFHOM THE FUNTMAN.I Aug. 6. Since my last we hnve been favored with a very timely downpour of rain, first, in the shape of a thunderstorm, and then an almost daily supply of genial showers, so that what with the ground beinsr pretty well saturated, and the warm weather setting in, we may shortly expect to see the grass—where not stumped with over stocking—waving in all the luxury of spring-tide, the wild flowers blooming and the numberless varieties of the acacia family nodding their golden blossoms, and impregnating the air with their odorous sighs ! 1 have just been enjoying a lobster salad wbioh to my readers will at once account for the foregoing bit of poeticality. The Pride of the Murray the other day landed about the greatest quantity of cargo that was ever done by one boat at Swan Hill. She also brought down the contractors, their men and materials for the repairs and addition to our post office and court-house, and overy day now the workmen are to be heard " at...

"INKY IMPY." [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

"INKY IMPY." S.ime one has been offending our Inky, it appears, by speaking slightingly of his poetry. He has begged hard for space to reply, promising Bt the same time to give us his tip of the elec tions. The following is the production lie has handed in:— At composing rhymes that don't halt or limp, I'm rather a dab for an inky imp. But X yesterday heard an old prosy muff • Describing my veraes as " doggrel stuff." I'm inclined to think be could quite excuse His bcin? impaled by my piquant muse; And I'd have such ninnies as him to know That my muse possesses a new strung bow j And hid in the folds of her light peliso Are arrows for shooting at cackling geese. Though seldom she stoops from her fancy sport To meddle with game of so poor a sort, You'd better, old prosy, beware, I think, Of the rollicking muse of this imp of ink. Now, I'll strike my lyre in a different key, And neither in ire nor sorrow: Here's twenty to one that little II. P. Is first on the poll to-morrow. Twenty t...

RIVER HAWKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

RIVER HAWKERS. The following is the opinion of tbe Solicitor General of New South Wales with regard to hawking and carrying by the river steam vesseb "Storekeepers along the course of the Biver Darling complain that their business is interfered with by steamers from South Aus tralia running up the liver and trading within the colony of New South Wales, and vending, gelling and bartering merchandise as hawkers without a license for so doing ; also as selling spirits and carrying goods as a common car rier. It is illegal for captains, owners or others in charge of such steamers to hawk or act as hawkers or pedlars within tbe colony of New South Wales unless licensed for such purposes under our Act 13 Vict. No. 36, and when duly licensed for such purpose they could not legally carry spirits under a penalty mentioned in tbe 18th clause thereof. "DoubtlesB while thus sailing under a hawker's license it would be illegal to carry spirits on board for any purpose whatsoever. This 18th secti...

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

Cjre §tftakc Jjjkrak ECSUGA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11,1869. It may be perfectly true that the Town Clerk has not interfered personally in influencing' the issue of the forthcoming elections. We have his word for it, at all events, and that should be sufficient. We can only say the contrary has been very freely reported, and some people have been known to go so far as to say that they could prove he had canvassed for some of the retiring members. Possibly they may have mistaken the actions of cer tain persons for agencies of his. Nothing could be more natural, since friends of retir ing councillors are friends of his. We are quite willing to accept Mr Pascoe's statement to the effect that he has refrained from elec tioneering in person; but it is very difficult to believe that his party has suffered any loss by his own inaction. The spirit and vis of his views have lost little by being conveyed second-hand to the electors. Mr Pascoe may deny having authorised their dissemination in any w...

THE BOROUGH VALUATIONS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

THE BOROUGH VALUATIONS. ( To. the Editor of the Riverine Herald) . Sir,—Seeing in your report of Mr Taylor's meeting at the Bridge Hotel that few ap pealed against their valuations, allow me to say that thero being no public notice in your advertising colums of the time of the neces sary notice of appeal, very few knew any thing about it. I fully intended to have ap pealed—being most unjustly rated, but al though I made made many enquiries, I cculd not get the requisite information. I did not not like to ask our legal gentlemen on ac couut of the six-and-eightpenny fee, and now find I have no redress. I may mention that the premises I occupy are valued at half as much again as the rent—which is quite high enough as things go at present, and, moreover, I live in a street that the Council have re pudiated and consequently get no benefit from the Council's funds, although helping to swell them. Now, Sir, with regard to the ninepenny rate, I would be quite willing to pay an eighteanpenn...

LATEST TELEGRAM. Melbourne, 10th August. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

LATEST TELEGRAM. (fhom ode own correspondent.) Melbourne, 10th August. John Kinnealy, the liberated Fenian, ap peared on remand this morning at the City Police Court, on a charge of being unlawfully in the Colony of Victoria, contrary to the law in such case made and provided. Mr Adamson and Mr Ireland, Q C., appeared for the prosecution, and Messrs ABpinall and Hearne for the defence. A lengthy argu ment took place on the legal points of the case. It was argued that the Queen's prerogative overrides the statute under which he had been arrested. The bench finally ordered Mr Kinneally to give bail that he would leave the colony at seven days' notice.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE ELECTIONS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Heralds) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 August 1869

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. THE ELECTIONS. (7b the Editor of the Riverine Heralds) Sir,—I beg spaoe to reply to some of Mr Taylo's assertions on Municipal matters, in bis candidature for a seat in the Council. Valuations.—Mr Taylur complains they are too high, and blames the Council for not altering and revising fame. I reply, that had the Council taken upon themselves to either raise or lower the valuation, they would then have laid themselves open to grave suspicions; moreover, as two of their own members oomplaiued of their valua tions being too high, the noninterference of the Council in the valuations must of necessity prove their anxiety to avoid even tho suspicion of an attempt to peenniarly benefit themselves or thi ir friends by their position. The bench of magis trates is always open to redreBS, more so as the Council does Dot employ an attorney in these matters. Sorely, Council, valuer, aud magistrates have not conspired to extort money from the burgesses. Two Hundred Pounds...

It is feared that the excellent prospects in the early portion of the season "will be blasted unless we Imve wet weather very shortly.

.The. Guilford correspondent of tb&-Daily Items .furnishes this'ghastly paragraph:— "Mrs William Carter, of Guilford, was a near neighbor of the Shewards, at the time of: the murder at Norwich, in 1851, and her son, then a little lad, found a lump of flesh as big as his two hands. When Seward was an nsr sistant in a shop years before, Mrs Carter pur chased her weeding ring of him. Sbeward bore a good character, and no one suspected him,,but he never prospered after, and after suffering for nearly eighteen years he, as we have seen, gave himself up to justice. It can be well imagined that the finding of bits of human flesh scattered over an area of a square mile would cause intense excitement, and as the whole population turned out to search, nearly; a - dray-load of bones and flesh was carried to the surgeons, who had their skill taxed, to. the utmost to decide which was human and which belonged to a lower order of creation.'"
