Mr William Winter said that he was pleased to see tbe meeting so well attended, as it showed most undeniably that the squatters of the distriot were desirous of adopting suoh measures as would reduoe tbe high rates that had been paid for shearing during...

HAY. August 18, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 21 August 1869

HAY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) August 18,1869. The steamers Murrumbidgee and Pearl are up river waiting for wool. Hay has now anything but a lively appearance : Trade is quite at a standstill; no doubt ere many weeks it will have a livelier appearance, as many stations in the vicinity hnve commenced shearing. Mr W. L. Smith's store will be opened during this week. The building, though of iron, has a very pretty front, and great things may be expected from the spirited proprietor. I understand Mr Pigot, of the Punt Hotel, intends starting weekly quadrille parties. I hope he may succeed, as if properly carried out it is likely to create more sociability amongst the inhabitants of this small community. I stated in a former communication that Mr. James Tyson had given the magnificent sum of £50 towards our school building fund. I now hear, on good authority, that Mr. T. did not give £50, but said he would give £50 if the site was altered, and as that would necessitate an expense of ...

MEAT PRESERVING COMPANIES. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald,) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 August 1869

MEAT PRESERVING COMPANIES. | . (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald,) Sir,—In my last stock report X notice you had a word printed Melbourne instead of "melting," thereby putting a different mean ing in the sentence to what I intended. The words you printed were as follows, viz.:—• " But for the last month I have been urging the desirability and necessity of. getting the Echuca and other meat preserving companies into full working order, or before Christmas we should have stock at Melbourne prices." What I wrote was, " at melting prices." In another paragraph I alluded to the fact of numbers of Riverine squatters sending off ten, twenty, or thirty thousand fat sheep this season. If they gave Is per head upon these fat sheep in the early part of this season in starting meat preserving companies, and even looked upon it as money sunk, I contend that instead of it being sunk, they would receive it back before the end of the season, in the inoreased price their stock would bring in the...

PUNTS ON THE LOWER MURRAY. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 August 1869

PUNTS ON THE LOWER MURRAY. (To the Editor of the Riverine Hera'd.) Sir,—It has been my late to bring a lot ot I fat sheep from one of the back blocks between the Lachlan and Darling rivers, and I think I will do the public some service by a little in formation, which I trust you will circulate in your jonrnal. When crossing the Wakool River, I was informed that the charge for sheep crossing at Swan Hill was 30s per 1000 and at Tooleybuc only 15s per 1000. Think ing to do things on the cheap in these hard times, I chose the latter route; I bad often been in the habit of crossing sheep at Swan Hill, but never before at Tooleybuc. I wish now I had not experimented on my own sheep, for I am sure I did £30 or £40 worth of damage to the flock. From Talbot's to Tooleybuc, a distance of eleven miles, I found feed very scarce, but from there right to Beveridge's home station, a distance of twenty miles, there was not a bite. You may imagine, Mr Editor, the state of affairs when I drove the s...

SWAN HILL. 18th August. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 August 1869

SWAN HILL. Tfrom the puntma'n.I 18th August. I On Thursday last the election of two mem bers for the Swan Hill Road Board took place. There were three candidates in the field—Messrs Patchell, M'Intosh, and ll'Mil lan—but which of them was made a victim of misplaeed confidence I have not as yet discovered. There are two reasons for that lamentable fact, the one because of Kerang being the seat of our local government—and my present "screw" wouldn't admit of me going all that distance to ascertain the state of the Poll—and the other because I have No vote. I want that to be put in capitals, to let your readers know how important personages like myself are passed over in silence, and robbed, as it were, of our rights; but after all, I am not much troubled thereat; in fact I am rather pleased, for, if I were a free and independent elector in the above Road Board, and a financially interested being, 'twould drive me mad, all the little j hankey-pankey that goes on there; it would so!

PUBLIC LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 August 1869

PUBLIC LECTURE. A lecture was delivered on Monday evening last in the Eebuca Town Hall to a numerous and most respectable audience by the Ven. Archdeacon Crawford of Castlemaine. The sujecfc of the lecture, which was given for the benefit of the funds of theGhurtih of England in Echuca, was "Co-operation." It was listened to with marked attention throughout, and we may mention that the audience, although consisting principaly of members of the Church of England, contained many repre sentatives of other sects, all of whom appeared to be pleased and edified. The chair was oc cupied by his Worship the Mayor, who in a brief buc appropriate manner introduced the ven. lecturer. The advantages and necessity of co-operation in the governance of the church as well a9 for its support, and for the general dissemination of religion, were ably dwelt upon and happily illustrated. The spiritual and secular duties of the clergy were explained, and the obligations the laity are under lo co-operate w...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. SHEEP WASHING. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 August 1869

original correspondence. sheep washing. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) j Sir,—I have noticed of late many remarks anent the use of hot water. I may say that it is nearly thirty years since 1 first saw hot water used in the washing of sheep, and al though the appliances we had in those days were but simplp, still the principle is the same We found by experience then that we must be careful not to have the water too hot; the degren of heat we found the best for soaking was lukewarm, or about the warmth of milk fresh drawn from the cow. This softens the dirt in the wool without injury, or in any way weakening the staple of the wool. We only used hot water as a soak, plunging the sheep directly out of the warm water into the cold. Another thing used by many is soda; nothing can be worse for making tbe wool harsh than soda. A little soap may be used, but soda should be avoided. I have known tbe staple of the wool injured by having too great a fall in the spouts and too great a b...

C|e Ittiterke lerak ECUUCA, WZD8ESDAY, AUGUSTUS, 18G9. Once upon a time Victoria appointed a com mission to enquire into the best methods of improving the navigation of the Murray. The investigation was ably made and the results duly reported. And there the matter ended. By the Government and Parliament of Vic toria the papers have all been laid upon the shelf, and their contents apparently forgotten. But, immediately after the report of the Com- \ missioners had been published, the Govern ment of New South Wales, acting, as it would aprear, on their suggestions, despatched com petent parties of engineers and surveyors to make such scientific examinations of the peculiarities and capabilities of the rivers Murray and Murrumbidgee, as. the commis sioners had declared to be absolutely necessary before any decisive steps could be taken. Vic toria, finding that there was no powerful pres sure brought to bear on the matter, contented herself with appropriating, for clearing pur poses in ...

TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 August 1869

TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. The good town of Echuca is in no great hurry to go ahead. It makes no hasty and unconsidered -strides; but secuTe-of its destiny as the future Chicago of Australia, it is con tent to grow gradually, and to advance by slow but sure -steps to the position -of a large, flourishing and populous town, which it will hereafter attain. Thus we find the vacant allotments in the various streets filling up qnietly with buildings of various kinds and of various degrees of durability and excellence. People residing here do not perceive the effects of these improvements, in the same wanner that those do who return after an absence of some months. Every'little tells, as every one stone added to a wall helps to complete its proportions. No very extensive buildings have of late been erected, but bricks and mortar nevertheless have been in considerable request. The masonic hall in | Dixon-street, to which we have already al luded, is a fine substantial brick building of about forty...
