ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. RAILWAY TRUCKS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. RAILWAY TRUCKS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.') Sir,'—I wish through your columns to call the attention of the railway authorities to the wretched accommodation existing at Echuca1 for the reception and forwarding of wool to Melbourne. On Monday last, about 3 o'clock p.m., a dray load of wool arrived at the goods station consigned to me. I wanted to dis charge the said wool at once, and pay the carrier, and so let him go nbout his business. I was from 3 o'clock to half-past 4 before I could find out what was to be done with the wool, and was then told that the Government could not receive it, as they had no trucks to take it away. I may mention that three loads of wool arrived on Saturday night, and four loads before the one I speak of on Mon day, so that the receipt of seven loads of wool seems to have'brought the department to a stand, as they would not receive mine, or any more until next day. Surely the department might cover in a nlace for the ...
SUMMARY OF ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
SUMMARY OF ENGLISH NEWS. The R.M.S. Malta, which was not due in J Hobson's Bay until to-morrow, arrived with the European mails on Sunday afternoon. The political news generally is not of a very interesting character. The Irish Church Disestablishment Bill had received the Royal assent. The Emperor •Napoleon had given considerable satisfaction to the French people by signifying his willingness to accede to cer tain measures of constitutional reform. A political conspiracy in Spain had been dis covered. With respect to commercial matters very satisfactory report-e sste made. The Bank rate of discount had been lowered to 3 per cent. A slight improvement had taken place in the wool market, and prices remained firm at the advanced rates. The next series of colonial wool sales was expected to begin on the 12th August. The July meeting at Newmarket began on the 6th. The July Stakes was won by Mr Merry's filly Sunshine. The Chester field Stakes on the 8th was won by Mr Mat thew Dawson's Ki...
ECHUCA DISTRICT ROAD BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
ECHUCA DISTRICT ROAD BOARD. Ail ordinary meeting of the Echuca Dis 1 trict Board was held yesterday at the office of the Board, High-street Present—Messrs. R.J. Glass (chairman), Nash, and Mackenzie. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. The following corres pondence was then read :—1. From the de partment of Roads and Bridges, informing the Board that the office of Roads and Bridges has been removed to No. 145 Collin-street east. 2. From the office of Lands and Sur vey, informing the Board that certain allot ments of land, as applied for by the board, in tha parish of Kanyapella, had been tem porarily withdrawn for the purpose of a new line of voad. 3.

LOWER LODDON. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
LOWER LODDON. (FltOAf A CORRESPONDENT.) You will have heard that the Road Board Election passed off rery quietly; Messrs. Macintosh and M'Millan being the successful candidates. No excitement was shewn, all three being good men, and I think they cared as little for the result as the rest of the dis trict. Your correspondent " The Puntman" was evidently an exception, however, but I don't think be need bewnil the fact of the meetings of the Board being held at another town than that from which it takes its name. Swan Hill is but little larger (though more con ceited) than Kerang, and there aru several stations in the district paying as much rates singly as the Town of Swan Hill altogether. No doubt it would be nice if the Board could be brought to charter a fleet of Murray steamers for carting bluestone, &c., to form streets and footpaths, hut, as the Puntman says, they are a stupid set and are " not on." I " worked off" a smile when the Puntman ceased his tirade against the p...
SWAN HILL. 25th August. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
SWAN HtLL. [from the puntman.I 25th August. | Well, one of the prodigious pig cases that has been adorning the pages of the huge recording volume of our Court of Petty Sessions for such a length of time has at last been decided; for on Monday last there were actually two magistrates in town. The fact of their august presence spread like wildfire. Our C.P.S. pounced upon them, and wished to know in his most captivating tone of voice if it would be "convanient for them to step down to the Goort House ?" Whether it was convenient I know not, but they did step down, took their seats on the bench, and listened with all becoming gravity to the charge against one Fairhurst, for having shot a pig, the property of one Winterbottom; a verdict was given for plaintiff, and damages awarded, but not, I believe, in such a sub stantial form as was anticipated. In the absence of an afternoon church ser vice last Sunday, I took a stroll over the newly surveyed suburban allotments, and, as far 88 tren...

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 1, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
C|t fdkrine JlttA j ECRU OA.. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 1, 1869. The purport aud objects of the lectures lately delivered in Echuca by two reverend gentle men on the subjects of " Self-Reliance " and " Co-operationought not to be lost sight of. Whether in a religious or secular point of view, it is essential to the success of a com munity that its members should feel confidence in their own powers of resource, and that they should unite as far as possible for their gen eral advancement. As far as the interests of religion are concerned, the promotion of the common weal is in the hands of the clergy and of the committees acting with them, and the effects of any temporary embarassment that may have occurred, will, it is to be hoped, be soon thoroughly repaired. But for their present and future worldly prosperity the people are called on to help themselves. The aspect of affairs is not always promising or encouraging, and difficulties of a serious and depressing nature frequently arise. It may ...
ENGLISH WOOL REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
ENGLISH WOOL REPORTS. Mr Helmuth Schwartze thinks it is not probable that the whole of the 53,642 bales afloat will arrive in time, should, the sales commence on the 5th of AngnBt. But we may expect (he says) to have about 170,000 bales new wool in at that | date, and, adding to this the 35,000 baits held over from previous series, the total quantity for disposnl will reach about 200,000 bales. There has been some animation in the market since the close of last series, and several transactions have taken place at firm prices. Advices from the English manufacturing districts speak of a some what better tone, and we have similar news from Germany; but in France business still seems to continue in an unsatisfactory condition. On the whole, the position of the market has undergone no appreciable change; but the prevailing feeling is one of firmness, and if the weather continues favorable there seems to be every prospect of June rates being fully maintained. The third series of Liverpool...

THE FREEMASON'S CONCERT. An amateur concert, which has for some time been in preparation, will be given to morrow evening in the Masonic Hall. The programme is one of a very full and varied character, and a highly pleasing and successful entertainment may be expected. We have been requested to draw attention to the fact that in order to prevent an over crowding of the hall, only a limited number of tickets will be issued, and early application should be made to members of the Lodge to-day by those desirous of securing seats.

THE I-NDO-EUROPEAN TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 September 1869
THE I-NDO-EUROPEAN TELEGRAPfiv Bj the Aldioga, which arrived oh Thursday morning (says the Mp] bourne correspondent of the Bendigo Advertiser) from Adelaide, information has been received by private letter that Mr Towlor's scheme for connecting' Australia with the Indo-European telegraphic lines, via Western Australia, will shortly be brought before the public. When first pro posed it was done in rather a crude form, and the gentlemen here who were asked to interest themselves in getting up a company couldn't see their way clear to do anything. Since then, however, Mr Towler has been further agitating in the matter. During the stay in South Australia of Mr Weld, the new Go vernor of Western Australia, he went fully into the merits of the scheme, and the | Governor seemed much taken with the idea, i He promised to do all he could to induce his Government, to give it their support and assistance, and said that he would endeavor to prevail upon them to survey their portion of the count...
