DURHAM OX. September 24, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 27 September 1878

DIURTHAMI OX. broS 0n O WN COeRESSPO-hDEa September 24, 1878. Notwithstanding the neat compli went paid to me by "your own" of - 'Swan Hill, I think the palm must be. given to "him for skill in filling up" a news letter in times of dearth. Iam at a loss for anything new, or strange, or startling of whlich to write. The subject of the weather is a threadbare; he one; wehave the same pitiful tale to e record week after week. b There has certainly been more signs of life and activity in the township ? uring the last week than for some. fie previous. Numerous wool teams. 'ijily laden with their precious' iynght have passed tllrough. he The cattle sales that a short time S-since caused a little stir are now sales Sonly i name; everybody wants to sell, o nobody wants to buy.

CORRESPONDENCE. COUNTY COURT AT KERANG. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KERANG TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 27 September 1878

CORRESPONDENCE. COUNTY COURT AT KERANG. 11o TUs EDITOR 0o Tin KaiEsa TIMES Stn,-I beg to draw your attention to the necessity of a County Court sitting at Kerang. It must be admitted that facilities are not afforded " although much needed" to the in habitants of Kerang, Swan Hill, and sur rounding districts, which other centres of population have. At present if any of our business people happen to let an account run one day over the prescribed time they have no redress, bhut fly to the County Court, and of necessity must go to Echuca or Inglewood some sixty-five miles distance, and in many cases perhaps the amountsued for would not cover the costs; indeed, this must be very discouraging to persons having any business to transactin the County Court under pre sent circumstances. I know of places of less importance than Kerang and district having a County Court every quarter. I am certain Inglewood, St. Arnaud, and Camperdown are of no more (or scarcely so) importance as this and Swan ...

TIMBER RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 27 September 1878

'TIMB'R RESERVES. THE policy of reserving large areas of land from selection for the sake of the timber is admitted on all sides as a good one. Some of ourred-gum forests are very valuable, irrespective of the valae of the soil for pastoral or agri cultural purposes. There is, however, a limit to their extent, and owing to the great demand for red-gum, the forests are becoming rapidly denuded of trees having a commercial value. A question therefore arises, whether those red-gum forests are intended to be per nanently reserved for growing timber, or only temporarily, while the timber now standing is being removed. If permanently for growing timber, then the supply to a certain extent will be kept up; but ii the latter, then it is only a question of time when the supply will be exhausted. For the use of those coming after us, it would be wise if the whole of the reser.ves were made permanent. A few exceptions to such a rule might be made when these re serves are near townships, and th...

LODDON VALLEY RAILWAY EXTENSION'LEA GUE. A meeting of this league was held at Hardy's Four Posts Hotel, Jarklan, on Saturday, September 21. There were presen-VW. Hardy, Esq. (president of the league), Messrs D. Coutts, Robt. Roys, J. Potter, J. Henshaw. A. Gray, B. Rinder (secretary), and others. The meeting was called principally for the purpose of meeting Mr Langdon and hearing a report from him on his recent visit to town, and on the general pros pects of the league. Mr Langdon, from some unexplained cause, did not put in an appearance. The meeting therefore, did not enter on the general business for which it was called, the gentlemen present preferring to ad journ to enable the secretary to comni municate with Mr Langdon and- re quest him to name a day that would be convenient for him to meet the league. The secretary produced several accounts for payment, one of them from ·Mr Rumble, of Boort, for £28, expenses for his trip to town as one of the de. putation, and for entertaini...

MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY. A inquiry was held on last Friday before Mr. H.

KOONDROOK. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 27 September 1878

KOONDROOK. This township which was surveyed   some months ago has not yet been ad- vertised for sale, much to the disap- pointment of many persons who desire to open business. The River Murray here opposite the township has at the present time - high water - a very im- posing appearance - a broad deep river within a few inches of the top of the, bank, and the Gunbower Creek which here joins the Murray is also a broad and expansive sheet of water, at pre- sent navigable for a good distance up, of course for small crafts. At the pr- sent time Koondrook is on a tongue of land having the Murray in front and the Gunbower running along its eastern boundary. Mr Keene's flour mill which stands on the west of the Gunbower and facing the Murray, is kept busy grinding flour day and night, and is, we understand, supplying not only the district for miles around, but the back country far up the Darling with flour, while the farmers' grain finds a ready market. We understand that most...
