THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND THE MINISTER OF LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 September 1869

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND THE MINISTER OF LANDS. The explanation given of the very ugly story about the intended incarceration of the Hon. J. M. Grant is, that the Attorney General had been privately consulted, as a friend of the family, by Mrs Grant, on the subject of her husband' state of health, and that Dr Tracy, his medical attendant, had called on Mr G. Paton Smith, and " pressed him as to whether there might not be legal impediments to a certain course of procedure which might be taken in order to induce Mr Grant to accept the repose so necessary for his •health; but Mr Smith positively declined to deal with that portion of the matte); at all events." Subsequently on the same day, Monday last, Mrs Grant told her husband, at the residence of her brother, Mr Blair, " that it would be quite easy to get the Attorney General's consent and Dr Tracey's co-opera tion to place him under duresB." Such in brief is the account given of the affair by the Age, which journal adds" Will it be...

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, SEPT. 11, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 September 1869

C|t ^iberk ficrali ECUXJGA., SATURDAY, SEPT. 11, 1869. An earthquake or a tidal wave could scarcely I have caused greater amazement throughout the country, than did the public announce ment in the early part of the week of a j projected incarceration of the Minister of Lands in a lunatic asylum. It would have J been better for all parties concerned that such a thing had never been heard of. It ought not to have been blurted out even if perfectly . true, for means might have been found by the friends of Mr Grant to have prevented him | from being subjected to such treatment; and there can be no doubt they would better have consulted his own feelings, to say nothing of his dignity as a Minister of the Grown, by sparing him the pain of the publication of such a scandal. We are not alluding to the newspapers, for, the report having gone abroad, those of them that believed it to be true, \ ouiu j,een ju8(;ified in lending themselves to its suppressfou. Mr Blair was the person who made th...

FUNERAL OF MR FAWKNER. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 September 1869

FUNERAL OF MR FAWKNER. The Hon. John Pascoe Fawfeher was buried on Wednesday in the Melbourne General Cemetery. The attendance at the fuberal was th j largest, it is said, that has ever taken place in our metropolis. And it was fitting1 that it should be so. Fifty thousand, persons at a moderate computation, witnessed the cere mony. Ilis Excellency the Governor, most of the member^ of the Ministry^ the judges, the clergy of all denominations) many of the members of Parliament, the corporations of Melbourne and suburbs, the magistracy, and the representatives of the public bodies of the metropolis, besides a large number of private persons of the highest standing were included in the immense procession that followed the founder of the colony to his grave. His re mains were taken in the morning to Oxford street Independent Church, in Fitzroy, which Mr Fawkner had been in the habit of attend ing for some years. Services were there per formed in the presence of a large congregation, aft...

THE POLICE MAGISTRATE OF ECHUCA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 September 1869

THE POLICE MAGISTRATE OF ECHUCA. We are very sorry to hear that Mr Lang ford's removal from Echuca has been decided on, he having been appointed, as we are informed, district surveyor at Castlemaine. We believe that this step has long been decided on by Mr Grant, whose opinion on the subject was that a gentleman of Mr Langford's superior abilities and attainments would be much more usefully employed in a more extended field of action than that of Echuca. It is not easy to dispute such an assertion, but the inference, which is clearly that his successor will be a man of inferior parts, is by no means cheering to the inhabitants of the town and district. Having all along been accustomed—in the persons of Dr Strutt and Mr Langford—to have a police magistrate of no ordinary degree of excellence, the people of Echuca may very well murmur at the prospect of an appoint ment of one of an inferior stamp. We are not sure that any appointment of resident police magistrate will be made, though ...

SHANTIES ON THE LOWER MURRAY (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 September 1869

SHANTIES ON THE LOWER MURRAY (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.J Sir,—In an article recently published in Riverine Herald, and which I notice has been copied into the "Leader" and one or two other of the Melbourne papers, the writer remarks "The Lower Murray has it appears been cursed with a host of low shanty-keepers, who pursue their villainous and uolawful calling, with little or no interference by the police or anyone else," &o. " Has the Church Mission or the Central Board for the pro tection of the aborigines been made cognisant of the state of things prevailing between Swan Hill and the junction of the Darling on the Victorian side of the Murray ?" The whole article is written in a very exaggerated style, and if correct would not only reflect seriously upon the efficiency of the police and their officer in charge, but would imply a certain want of respect for order and decorum upon every settler in the district. Aa a resident on the Victorian side of the Murray, I...

THE SQUATTERS AND MEAT PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 11 September 1869

THE SQUATTERS AND MEAT PRESERVING. The following remarks are by a correspon dent of the Sydney Morning1 Herald:—I am well aware that the owners or nominal owners of stations say that il is not their place to take shares in a meat company; but I con tend that the case is exceptional, and that therefore exceptional steps ought to be taken. They say that their duty is merely to grow stock and leave it to others to give it a value. It appears to me a suicidal policy for them to continue to breed large quantities of stock to their own ruin, and I will endeavor to show in a few words that taking shares in such a venture is really no risk, and a duty to them selves. For instance, if such a company were formed, and shares taken up only by squatters, and the company paid its own expenses, and no dividend, an end would then have been attained in the increased value of stock throughout the country, as there can be no doubt that if the consumption in the mar ket were three or four times what it...

THE RAILWAYS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 September 1869

THE RAILWAYS. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) Dear Sir,—Now that we have a new, real, live Minister o f Railways, and that Minister a thorough business man, we have every right to exppct that some better arrangement will be made at this end of the line for the speedy conveyance of this season's wool to Melbourne than there has been for past seasons We also hope the hon. gentleman will institute some enquiries into the cause of the great de lay with the passenger train between Mel bourne and Echuca. For some time past scarcely a train has arrived at Echuca in ac cordance with the time table. Who nre really to blame in the matter ? It would be well if the hon. the Minister of Railways will enquire. The long promised improvements to the Echuca Wharf would be also very acceptable. Almost every Minister of Railways who has held office since the construction of the wharf at Echuca, has promised that no time should be lost in erecting sheds thereon, so that there may be some protec...

I could understand poor or needy men purchasing doubtful stock at Is per head, but for men in the apparent position ot the Bael Bael pro prietors doing- so I cannot excuse. Thoj are not only undangerine the rest of their own stock, but they hang a terror, like the sword of Damocles, over the heads of their neigh bors.

SWAN HILL. 8th September. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 September 1869

SWAN HfLL. fFnOM THE FUNTMAN.I 8th September. | I am glad to see by your last issue that my boss has done the correct thing; at last. There cannot be any grumbling; and growling now about the punt charges; nor can there be any danger of "laying it on too stiff," for the tollages are advertised, and they are low enough in all conscience. Occe more the cry of scab has been raised in the district. Reedy Lake station is where the pest has made its appearance, although, I understand, not to any alarming extent. It is a fortunate thing that shearing on the sta-1 tion is just about commencing, for one good dip after that operation will be of more value, as far as regards rasults and effects, than half a-dozen when the wool is long, and the wea ther cold. One thing I feel certain of,—the fell disease will not he allowed to live very long, even although wo do not get a Scab Act this session, for the proprietors mean to go at it in earnest; and report says they are not men to do things by hal...

EARLY CLOSING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 September 1869

EARLY CLOSING* ASSOCIATION. To-morrow evening the Rev A. Mackie purposes to deliver bis lecture on "Electricity and Magnatism," which he was prepared to give on the evening1 of Monday week in the Echuca Common School-house, for the benefit of the Early Closing Association. The scanty attendance at the lectures and other entertainments got up by this society is attributable, we cannot help thinking, in a very great measure to the apathy of its mem bers. It is a matter for regret that a greater degree of interest is not exhibited by them in the succkss of a movement of their own initia tion. But as there is plenty of scope, so is there plenty of time for improvement, and ■a little energetic effort would yet save the as sociation from crumbling to ruins. The charge of admission is Tidiculously small being only sixpence, so ihat cannot be con sidered as having been a bar to success. But when the members of the association do not attend themselves, nor take any trouble to induce others t...
