The aspect of affairs generally, both pastoral and agricultural, is becoming very seriously gloomy, from the continued wont of rain. It is to be feared "that wo are entering upon a very bad season indeed, for the dis netrous effects of which there is unfortunately no remedy. It teems almost incredible that the people of these colonies, in the face of the repeated warning they receive, and the ruinous losses they sustain through the constant recurrence of severe droughts, should be contented to go ■on from year to year without urging on their rulers and legislative representatives the absolute necessity...

ABOLITION OF STATE AID. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 August 1869
ABOLITION OP STATE AID. The Melbourne papers of Thursday all comment at some length on the debate of the previous evening-, on Mr M'Culloch's resolu tions for the withdrawal of the Government Grant-in-aid to religion. We make the following extracts:— ( Argus.) In reality, the point in controversy—five years or ten—is of no material importance; and the public would most likely be indiffer ent as to which of the periods was selected. In the social growth of a colony like this, five years are equal to "a cycle of Cathay," and we may confidently hope that by the end of the year 1874, the most rudimentary town ships and sequestered districts of Victoria will boast of populations sufficiently compact and sufficiently prosperous to enable them to dis pense with all but voluntary assistance for the erection of places of worship, and for the adequate maintenance of ministers of religion. In that event the total cessation of the grant at the date named will be an incident which will attract n...

THE HENRY REPEATING RIFLE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 August 1869
THE HENRY REPEATING RIFLE. This rifle which is rather an extraordinary affair, we are given to understand, is manu factured by the Newhaven Arms Company, Newhaven, Conn, and was used very exten sively during the American war. By act of Legislature it was not allowed to be exported until some two years since, and hence has not been much known out of America. The rifle which Mr Simonsen has shown to us (Ben digo Advertiser) is a very neat arm, weighing about an ounce less than lOlbs, and carrying 1000 yards with accuracy. The calibre is 44-100th of an inch, and the cartridges go thirty-two to the pound. Fifteen shots can be fired by an expert at it in ten seconds, a mar vellous rapidity. The principle of the rifle is very simple. It is fitted with a barel, as it were, below the proper barrel, and into j this runs a spiral spring. When the spring' is pushed up fifteen cartridges—which are in themselves cartridges and caps, the detonating substance being inside the brass cup which holds...
The Riverine Herald. EGHUCA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 28,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 August 1869
C|e §tferiite Jperak EGEUGA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 28,1869. The Land Bill has passed its third reading in the Legislative Assembly, and has been very slightly altered from the form in which it left the hands of its framers. Favorable as it may be considered to the interests of the free selectors, it is very questionable whether it will have tbe effect of drawing any largo number of people to the colony for the pur pose of engaging in agricultural pursuits. No fairer or more liberal terms than it proposes for the disposal of the lands could have been expected, nor in justice to all parties have been conceded. If the country offered for occupa tion were all of such character that men could go upon it with certainty of rendering their toil in cultivating and improving it remunera tive, we might indeed expect that the result of the passage of such a measure as that which the Upper House has now to pass on for the Royal assent, would be a large additional amount of immigration. But the risk o...

HAY. August 25, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 August 1869
HAY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) August 25, 1869. The first wool of the season passed down in the Pearl steamer on Saturday last. It comes from the Messrs Learmonth's stations, Groon- &nbsp; gal and Bringagee, and each bale was sub- jected to the damping process, by an hydraulic press in the possession of those gentlemen. Everywhere we hear of their being about to commence shearing operations, and I sup- pose a fortnight from now will see them in full swing. Meanwhile we (the townspeople) are waiting and watching very patiently, but all of us have the one opinion, that if the ending of the shearing is only as good as the beginning, we will all amalgamate, and as there is no money to be got, make a giant game of poka in the primitive style of the ancient Britons, viz, each ante-up part and parcel of his stock-in-trade at at a fair ratio, and all play their own hands out (bluffing will be strictly restricted to from a tin of oysters to a pair of 20s Wellington boots, so that...
