GENERAL NEWS. Deniliquin Stock Report. — Friday evening, April 27, 1894. — Until last night the weather has been fine for a week past. Rain set in briskly on Thursday evening, and the registration this morn ing waB 45 points. The fall was pretty general over a large extent of country, but was in all cases lighter than it was at Deniliquin, the next heaviest being at Jerildetie, Wagga, Urana, Balranald, and Moulamein, where the records were 35, 29, 28, 26, 23, and 22 points respectively. In the neigh bourhood of Deniliquin the pastures are in first class condition, but lower down tho river there is a gradual falling off in the appearance of the feed right down to Balranald. The rainfall in that direction, and more especially to - wards Swan Hill, has been comparatively insig nificant, and the pastures have suffered accordingly. The rivers continue low, and there is no likelihood of a rise for some time to come. The lambing is progressing satisfactorily. The only stock passings this w...

Tiib Irwins and tiieir House. In Six Chapters, CHAPTER II. Peggy Irwin bowed against the familiar fence of he beloved Cherrycroft, had shed but a few tears before a wild, bright idea came upon her so suddenly she clung to the fence trembling, and scarcely breathed for several moments. When she lifted her face a smile erupt about the corners of her mouth and lingered there, brightening her tearbe dowed countenance like a ray of sunshine. She retraced her steps along South Street and entered Mrs. Titus's little parlour, with her mind teeming with a crowd of plans. Peggy felt like a different girl from the one who had left the room but an hour ago. She was now gracious enough to play a game of checkers with Mrs. Titus's little boy in a manner that rejoiced his heart. At an eirly hour the next morning she went down to the office of Mr. Cole, the agent of the es tate. She found him, as usual, before his table Btrevn with papers.

Losses in Battle: A Declining Record. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

Losses in Battle : A Declining: Record. Just as it is no longer necessary to burn your houie down to have roast pork for dinner, so it is no longe essential to victory in battle that three quarters of your foes should be slain. Linear tactics and firelocks contributed more laviBhly to the death roll than the skirmishers and breechloaders, of modern times. At Blenheim we lost some 23 per cent., and anr | enemies about the same number. At Mollwitz the ? Prussians lost 18 per cent, the Austrians 28 per cent At Kolin, Frederiek's force suffered to the extent * of 37 per cent., while their victory cost his enemies only 14 per cent. At Zorndorf, the bloodiest battle of which we have any record that we may rely upon, the proportion of loss to the total foroae engaged rose to the enormous total of from one half to one-third. Kuneradorf was almost as des tructive to human life, and Frederick lost 35 per cent, against 2G per cent, of the allies. With the advent of Napoleon, and the loosened f...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

LOCAL NEWS. Relics of the Old Days. — In driving two rows of piers at the Western end of the Long Bridge the contractor, Mr. McGill, came to something very   hard which prevented the piles from being driven   into the ground. An excavation was made, and   brought to light the fact that in the very early   days — probably the very first attempt at bridge building at this particular spot— a number of heavy iron-bark logs had been laid down with a second row crossways on the top, and from this foundation a stone pier had been built which carried the super structure of a small bridge across a creek which ran past there, and traces of its existence are observ able to the present day. Further sinking close by led to the discovery of a similar pier on'the other side of the waterway, and the stimes are now being taken out nf the ground, where they have not. seen the light of day for probably sixty years, and used in building up the retaini...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. 1 A Coming Ditouairr.— A correspondent writes to tho Narrajjdera Argus A gentleman engaged in pastoral pursuit*, who has been a resident on tho Murrumbidgee for tho last twenty-four years, and first came to it in 1810, tells me that he has not seen a winter open like the present one Bincc 1870. I have heard several others make the same remark. This gentleman, However, iooks a uirciu lumuui ahead, and says that the winter on which we are now entering is the precursor of a ' regular beauty of a drought.' He bases his forecast on a knowledge of the weather conditions which fol lowed '51 flood— which washed Gundagai away— and the '70 flood, both of which were followed by good seasons, and real humming droughts. In 1896-7, he says, the drought will come, adding with emphasis, ' And don't you forget it.' There is one man, at least, who believes in this forecast, and that is the prophet himself— and his name isn't Egeson. Ho tells me that he intends to stock heavily this...
