The truce of five months has afforded both sides an opportunity to recover from the ex- haustion of the conflict, to rally their forces, mark the weakness of the opponent, and con- centrate the attack.

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 7 November 1874

Local and General News. THE WEATHER.--The only remarkable     feature in the weather this week is its great heat, rendering exertion during the day any thing but comfortable. Occasional hot winds have made the atmosphere still more oppressive, while raising clouds of dust along the main road to the great discomfort of shopkeepers and residents near the road. The evenings and early part of the day, how- ever, are exceedingly pleasant, restoring the languid system to energy and life, and coun- teracting in every way the daily scorching to which we are exposed. COURT HOUSE IMPROVEMENTS.--The pre-     mises connected with our local Police Office have undergone considerable enlargement and alteration during the past few weeks, the result of which will be that quite a cheer- ful appearance will be given to this generally sombre institution. Two rooms, 18 feet by 15 feet, have been added according to the original plan, as retiring rooms f...
