THE manager of an estate of some 200 mil- lions of acres may be well pardoned if, in his administration, he commits many blunders ; nor is it in any captious spirit that we invite the attention of our readers to a case of great hardship upon a considerable number of conditional purchasers which has recently occurred in our local Lands Office. By a Government Gazette notice of Tues- day, 10th March, 1874, the land situate within two miles of the projected railway to Wagga Wagga was reserved from conditional purchase. Instead of communicating this important act of the Executive by telegram, the announcement was left to the ordinary channel, and only reached the local Land Officer, in the usual course of post, on Thursday evening, the 12th. During the course of that day no less than 9 conditional purchases were made on this reserve, of the existence of which the applicants and the district Land Officer were alike ignorant. The same result attended a similar lache per- petrated by the L...

Mr. Donovan appeared for the defendant. Constable O'Dwyer deposed : I produce the war- rant under which I searched defendant's premises ; I asked defendant if he were the owner of the premises ; he replied, "I believe I am;" I pro- ceeded to search the premises, and found the liquor which I now produce, viz. : two casks, containing bottled porter ; also a large jar in a wicker basket, containing rum ; also a five-gallon keg containing rum, and a case containing three bottles of gin ; I asked de...

SMALL DEBTS COURT. (Before Messrs. W. D. Campbell, and W. J. E. Wotton.) [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 25 July 1874
SMALL DEBTS COURT. &nbsp; &nbsp; (Before Messrs. W. D. Campbell, and W. J. E. Wotton.) Frederick Weifert v. Michael Ryan—work and &nbsp; labour—12s. 6d. &nbsp; Charles Weifert applied to the Court to in- terpret for his son. The interpreter, being duly sworn, interpreted the oath to the plaintiff. Defendant admitted the debt, but pleaded the set-off. The set-off appeared to the Court to be for goods supplied to Charles Weifert, for which defendant must take another remedy. Verdict for plaintiff for amount claimed, and costs. Trespass. T. Woodbridge v. J. P. Ryan.—The plaint was &nbsp; for trespass repeatedly committed since last November by defendant's sheep on a pre-lease of 120 acres, and on a selection of 140 acres, the property of plaintiff's son, on four different occasions during the month of June, 1874. The plaintiff proved the trespasses, which in fact were not disputed by the defendant. The pre-lease had on a previous occasion been in...
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. LONDON—JULY 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 25 July 1874
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. REUTER'S TELEGRAMS TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS. LONDON—JULY 14. &nbsp; The authorites have ascertained that the young man who fired at Prince Bismarck is a journey- man cooper, from Magdeburg. He is a member of a Roman Catholic society, and has confessed that his object in shooting was to assassinate. A priest, who is supposed to be implicated in the outrage, has also been arrested. This attempt to murder the Chancellor of the &nbsp; Empire has caused great excitement at Berlin, and evoked many expressions oi sympathy for the Prince, who has so narrowly escaped destruction. In the House of Commons the Scotch Patronage Bill was read a second time on a division of 307 to I09. JULY 15. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; In the House of Commons the debate on the &nbsp; second reading of the Bill to restrain Ritualism has been concluded. The motion was put and carried without division, and the bill has been read a second time. A t...
A REMARKABLE CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 25 July 1874
A REMARKABLE CHARACTER. The Marquis of Clanricarde, whose death we an- nounced on Saturday, was a really remarkable man, and would have been a great man had his moral character been atall on a par with his intel- lectual gifts. He might in many respects be compared to the Admirable Crichton, for there war nothing he attempted in which he did not &nbsp; succeed. A ready and powerful debater, an able administrator, extremely agreeable in social life a magnificent horseman, a splendid skater, a first rate shot, he combined in his youth in a marvel- lous manner intellectual and physical accomplish- ments. In 1824, Mr. Canning, then in the zenith of his popularity, paid a visit to Dublin, where he was received with great enthusiasm. The news- papers speculated upon the subject of his visit, and supposed it to be connected with poltics ; but the result soon appeared in the marriage of his only daughter to the young Earl of Clanricarde. This marriage offered the steps which the am-...

GRANDMOTHER HOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 25 July 1874
GRANDMOTHER HOOK. A few evnings ago, I was at one of those old- world-houses in Edinburgh where a man may actually invite himself to tea, and, without being stared at as a curiosity, take his place in a circle round a round table, dominated by a steaming urn. I would describe this tea-drinking as a relic of the olden time ; but just now I have something else to do. Suffice it, that besides myself, there were at table an old maid, a young maid, the father and mother of the latter, and a gentleman-like man somewhere on the wrong side of forty. This man was the lion of the party, and performed wonderfully welL He was not like the caged animal, strutting up and down to show his paces, and growling, grinning, or yawning at the spec- tators ; but resembled rather the free denizen of &nbsp; the forest, leaping and romping by turns, dignified or playful as occasion called ; now making the &nbsp; room ring with his voice, and now " roaring you ' an 'twere any nightingale."

EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 25 July 1874
EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES. (From the Times ) In the United States Government education is not so perfectly organised as most people suppose. Each State manages its own matters, and it is only within the last few years that a Federal Govern- ment Department of Education has been estab- lished. The report of this Department for 1868 tells us that " in nearly one-half of the States no efficient system of public schools is in operation." The administration of schools even in each State is almost always entirely in the hands of local authorities, and therc is no central power in the least like our great Privy Council Bureau, with its codes and inspections, rewards and penalties. Education is also very far from being as secular- ised as many people suppose. Things are how- ever, tending that way, and in New York, for instance, the State schools are all but completely secularised. Yet even New York State voted, only a year or two ago, 50,000 dollars to the Wes- leyan University at Syr...

EXAMPLE FARMING IN VICTORIA. A CONTEMPORARY publishes the following: " The farms of Newstead vary in size from 40 acres to 200, and occupy the tributary gullies and the valley of the Loddon below these points of junction. The gullies vary in length from three to nine miles, and the part of the Loddon Valley belonging to Newstead is about five miles long by an average of one in width, bounded on either &nbsp; side by the Tarrengower and Glengower Ranges, the soil of which is of inferior quality, poorly grassed, and thickly covered with stunted timber. The tributary gullies slope to very narrow beds, down the most of which streams of sludge come from gold workings at their heads. This is specially the case with Sandy Creek, along which is conveyed the sludge from the Maldon quartz- crushers, which has rendered useless a large portion of the richest land of the farm situated at ite junction with the Loddon. In the tributary gullies, and near the edges of the river, the soil con...

One of the usual accompaniments of advanced civilization is the practice of attempting to remedy every social evil by legislation. No matter how small the amount of general damage, no matter how difficult it may be to avoid the injury, some adventurous spirit is found to persuade the Legislature to apply a panacea for the complaint, which, without curing the original disease, inflicts a worse ill upon the community. Such has been the general effect of the Brands Registration Act. For many years the crime of cattle-stealing has been one of our greatest moral plagues. The condition of our herds, accustomed to roam over an extensive unenclosed country, had always invited the depredations of per- sons who preferred illegal ways of acquiring property to the ordinary forms of industry ; and the ill-success which had hitherto at- tended all efforts to check the increase of this serious crime naturally induced those who were anxious for the material prosperity of the Colony, and its complet...
