CARRIAGE OF CATTLE TO SYDNEY AND MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 5 February 1878

CARRIAGE OF CATTLE TO' SYDNEY AND MELBOURNE. The Wagga Wagga Express, alluding t-; the approach of the southern railway rfays:— 'At the present time, with tin southern railway approaching us, it may not be uninteresting to draw' a compart son between the cost of the carriage of cattle to Sydney and to Melbourne. The question is an important one and now seriously affects the former city, not standing the almost prohibitive, duty which the Victorian Government ha; placed upon stock. The cost of sending say fifty bullocks to Wodonga is two shillings per head, added to which there is the duty of sixpence per head. Erom Wodonga to Melbourne the cost is £5 5/ per - truck; each truck holding eleven comfortably. This represents 9/6 per headj and brings the. total cost of trans mission to 17/6 per head, for which amount the cattle may be placed in the Newmarket yards. Now for the other side. The cost of transmission to Mur rumburrah from here is three shilling? a head. Arrived at Murrumburra...

In the Assembly, at the termination of the debate on Mr. Stuart's no-confidence motion, the Government received the support of a large majority, a majority which' we are prepared to admit may have been produced by the silly speech of the cultivated member for the Uni versity, Mr., W. C. Windeyer. It is a strong argument against compulsory education— though we &*e not anxious to find any argument against it — if learn ing can even in a solitary instance lead a man. to 'make such a ludicrous figure as did the : erudite University man in the late debate ; and his speech would force one' to, the conclusion of Festus after hearing the eloquence of Paul, that much learning hath made him mad, but that he was never known in the whole of his political Career to speak forth the words of truth and soberness. Mr. Windeyer has ever been (politically) an educated dinice; and after ,liis late speech he should be condemned to don the long hat and mount the form as. a public ex ample to all ...

(TO THE EDITOR). [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 5 February 1878

(to the editor). Sir,— I was much struck with the force of the remarks of the hon. member for Hartley, Mr. Hurley, in moving the adjournment _ of the House, coinciding as they do_ with mine as to the sheer waste of money implied by the proposed erection of expensive buildings for railway' purposes at Bethungra; and it behoves our member to tako immediate steps to stop such a glaring piece of -folly. It is well known that it has always been the idea of prominent' officials of the railway department that Bethungra was to be tho city par excellence,, and past experience lias afforded ample proof that once the fiat has gone forth nothing but a very great out-, ward pressure will make them retrace their, steps. As the hon. member truly remarked, Cootamundra must, from its being the . cen tre of one of the most fertile districts of the colony, as well as for its being the natural junction for the Gundagai line and- the line to the South Australian, border— to which scheme the present Gove...

GUNDAGAI: FRIDAY, Feb. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 5 February 1878

GUNDAGAI: (from our correspondent.) Friday, Feb. 1. With the exception of a light thunder-storm on Sunday afternoon last, another fortnight of dry and hot weather has visited us. Not only is there no appearance of change, but of late the heat has been increasing again day by day. Yesterday afternoon the ther mometer went up to 113 degrees in the shade; but I firmly believe to-day's tem perature will exceed that, as the morning is very warm indeed. January has gone, and I think it will be a long remembered month, for on a good many days the thermometer exceeded 100 degrees, and on the others it ranged from 90 to 98.

Before the laying of the foundation stone of Captain Cook's pillar |n Hyde Park, I exposed the untruthfulnqs of the story in more than one publishel letter. On several subsequent occasions, ijiave cor rected the misstatement ; notable m two instances of extensively circulated works — one iu this city, and one in ftpbounio.
