BARNAWARTHA. (FBOM OUB OWN C0BBE8P0NDENT.) Tuesday. February Jl. After a lengthened period of dry, unpleasant sort of weather, we experienced a welcome change yesterday. Very steady showers fell, and at the time of writing 0,35in. was registered. The vintage, which will be started in about a month's time, will, it is anticipated, be very pro lific, but on account of the protracted absence of rain the grapes are not as large as usual, although rich in saccharine matter. An adjourned meeting of the Barnawartha Turf Club will be held on Saturday evening, 15th inst. There has been a great exodus of wine from this district lately. Since the beginning of the year upwards of 30,000 gallons have been sent away, most of it being for export. Amongst this lot waa an order completed by Mr. C. Reau, of the Bordeaux Vineyard, a nounting to about 10,000 gallons, all for export. Both grass and water are getting very scarce in this district, and a poor winter is expected.

Up to the present time there has been 76 points, and there is still a good prospect of more. This rain has come at a very oppor tune time, as all the stripping is finished, and the grass in some parts is beginning to gut scarce. Tbis district is well to the fore wi.h fat eheep, and after such a dry summer it speaks well to see bs many as seventeen trucss of fat sheep from different owners leavicg on Tuesday for Homebush. If the Victorian Stock Tax was removed Melbourne would receive from the dis trict some nice fat sheep, and greatly to theii gain, As farmers have now finished their stripping they are commencing to ilear some. of the thin uew land for the coming season, and with wheat still rising there Should be a good prospect before them, There was no cricket match on Saturday as Oulcairn ...

THE MINISTER OF MINES AT CHILTERN. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

THE MINISTER QF MINES AT CHILTERN. The Minister of Mines, accompanied by Mining Inspector Treaize, pall a vieit to CmTern on Saturday to inspect the underground workings of the Chiltern Valley No. 2 claim, in consequmce of complaints of insufficient ventilation. The Minister thought it quite likely that, there was bad air during the very hot weather owing to the distance of tho drives from the shaft, but the management will soon remedy, in its own interests, by an aic shaft. The Mininster next visited the Bobbie Burns claim in reference to complaints of the withdrawing of slabs by Homuth and Watkins without permission after inspection. He thought, as no serious damage had been done, and as the men had the claim registered and sinrni j fled their intention of working it, and i also taking into consideration their ignor j ance of the law, that a reprimand would : meet the case. The Minister uubaoquently met Homuth and Watkins, and iulormed them ihafc they had committed a grave breach ...

THE COMMERCIAL BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

THE COMMERCIAL BANK. The half-yearly meeting of the Com mercial Bank, held in Melbourne last week, led to a crowded attendance of shareholders. In an able speech Mr. James Service placed before them the affairs of the bank, bidding them be of good cheer, for all would go well. The bank, he said, was impregnable. In every direction the most encouraging reports of improving business has been received, and the institution boas'ed a strength which outsiders would hardly credit. The important matter of his addreas, however, was his announcement that the directors proposed to negotiate to, if pos sible, alter the conditions of the agree ment by which, in April, 1893, the bank undertook to pay its fixed depositors 4£ per cent, irrespective of the borrowing or lending rate outside. The position was simply that owing to the downward ten dency of the lending and borrowing rates, competing institutions were lending out money at the same rate as the Commercial Bank paid for it. A profit under s...

ROMAN CATHOLIC. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

ROMAN CATHOLIC. Sjme changes are being effected amongst the clergy of the Roman Catholic Church in the Richmond diocese, and the Key. Abbe Schurr, who has spent a quarter of a century on the Richmond and Clarence, the greater part of the time at Casino, goes to Port Macquarie shortly. A true Christian in the sense that should earn the greatest appreciation, Father Schurr will leave an army of friends behind him, and his charity will be missed by many who have tasted of its benefits. Although not approving of testimonials in many cases, we certainly thick the Abbe should not be allowed to depart without some '*? substantial recognition of his unselfish labors for so long a period in the district, and hope a move will ba made to cheer the good old man on the occasion of his leaving. He is popular amongst all c'aseeb, and by his goodness has earned the love of others besides those belonging to his church. We (Z?. R. Herald) are not aware when Father Schurr contem plates leaving h^ re, ...

THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

THE GOVERNOR. - The Governor is not the faineant ruler we expected, from English criticism. He ;. ia a most active and exemplary repre - sentative of her Majesty. He goes to «rery function, and makes fairly good {speeches. He is not so heavy as Lord Brassey, of Victoria. He has never Berved in a British Government, and conse quently has not an official career to look back upon. He cannot tell us of what the Emperor of Germany and he. said to each pther at Cowes, aB the lineal descen dant of Sieur de Bresci, who of course came over with the Conqueror, could tell hi» Victorian friends, but he is an en gaging after-dinner speaker, and Boon gets on very good terms with his audi ence. In a couple of months, when the heat wave Bball bave passed away, and the cool weather sets in, Lord Hampden is to make a series of country trips. He is to go north as far as Graf con, and westward to Bathurst. The shows at these cities— for they are cities, being the seats of bishops— are to be opened by h...

A PARTNERSHIP DISSOLVED. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

A PARTNERSHIP DISSOLVED. Playgoers throughout Australasia will learn with regret, that the long.and note worthy partnership between Mr. Eobert BrtUgh and Mr. Dion G. Boucicaulb will be dissolved on 19th June. Since these actors joined forces at the Melbourne Opera House, where they opened in October, 3886, they have forwarded the highest interests of dramatis art in Aus tralia. They became lessees of the Mel bourne Bijou Theatre early in 1887, and, with the aid of a double company, pro duced there, and at the Sydney Criterion Theatre, nearly al the great pieces worth remembering during the ensuing lustrum. This period of their artistic enterprise was brought to a close at the Criterion Theatre on 11th August, 1893, and dating from their appearance at the Princess Theatre, Melbourne, in November of that year, they have sub-leased theatres from Messrs. Williamson and Musgrove. But the character of their work has remained the eame. In addition to many diverting pieces of a more or l-:s...

STRANCE DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

STRANGE DEATH. The district coroner held an inquest at Boogaldi regarding the death of William Eobert Foran. It transpired from the evidence that the deceased left his house on Sunday evening to shoot some hawks which were taking a neigh bour's fowls, and, not returning, a search was made, and on Monday mormng ijoran was found dead, lying on his rifle. His tracks in blood showed that he had been going round in a circle about 12fc. .before he fell. Medical examination showed that one bullet had passed upwards under the chin and through the tongue, break ing both the jaws and emerging at the top of the nose, passing through the rim of the hat. A second bullet entered the right ear and came out on the opposite side of the head near the top. Ttie jury returned an open verdict. The general opinion is that the wound under the chin was accidental, and, the agony being in supportable, Foran shot himself. There was an empty cartridge on the ground, and another in the rifle. The doctor is dou...

JOHN CHINAMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 14 February 1896

JOHN CHINAMAN. A writer in the Dubbo Despatch says:   — John Chinaman is not "shy," to use a   word given signification by a speaker at the last general engagement over the B iling Down Company. The childlike   and bland Pagan may have many short- comings, but he generally is on very good terms with himself. The heat has sent the proprietor of Mumblebumble and his family to the mountains, and the homestead is ia possession of the over- seer and the Chinese cook. The latter has taken upon himself all the dignity of proprietorship, and runs the concern. The other day a neighbour called at the station, and after having a pull at the water bag, strolled into the house, and looking into the boss's room, found the Chow fast asleep on the bed, with a suit of his employer's pyjamas on. The sight was too much for the visitor, who woke up the Celestial, and remonstrated with him, but the heathen was as cool as a cucum- ber, and with one of those irrating...
