INKY'S GNOME. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 September 1869
INKY'S GNOME. We make no apology for offering the fol lowing verses to our readers, from the pen of our devil, Inky Tmpy. The following lines will, I hope be read By the whole of my friends and neighbors. They tell how I met with a phantom dread Very lately at night, and the words he said, As I hied me home to my lowly bed, To rest from my daily labors. I was walking along on my lonely road, That's the path that I travel nightly Away through toe swamp, to my poor abode Near the Patent Slip. And I slowly strode, To list to the stream, as it murmuring flowed, And the trees, as they whispered lightly. The night was still, and the breezes light Swooped not to the river's level; And the ohandeliers of eternal height Were glittering, glistening, glancing bright On the leaves, that trembled between their light And the eyes of the gazing devil. A distant clock—I could count each stroke— Chimed noon of the night out clearly; And as the silence oalm it broke, The birds in the lolty trees aw^k...
The Riverine Herald EGHUCA, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 15, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 September 1869
EGHUCAj WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 15, 18G9. In anticipation of the removal of Mr Lang ford from this district, we are told that the Government have written to the Borough Council of Echuca, asking' that body to tr.ke charge of the local land office. The matter will, we presume, be brought under the consideration of the Council this evening. There ought to be no hesitation in the man ner of dealing with it. In accepting the pro posal, the Council will at once admit that they have not sufficient employment for the Town Clerk, and there are not a few rate payers who already think that a less ex pensive officer would perform all the duties required of him. But if it be admitted that his salary is only a fair one (which can scarcely be done if his leisure is such as to permit of his doing the work of the Land Office) it cannot for a moment be supposed that the burgesses will submit to be taxed for the payment of the performance of duties which devolve on the Lands Department. It is all very well ...
LAKE COROP. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 15 September 1869
LAKE COROP. The early crops in this district are looking remarkably well, but require rain. The water in Lake Cooper is very low, and already quite unfit for use. Unless an extraordinary rain fall takes place, it is thought the lake will be dry in the course of the next two months. J-'be dams and waterholcs throughout the area ire bIbo failing, and the residents will be very badly off for water in a short time. A good spell of wet weather is, therefore, anxiously desired by them. 1 he people of Corop have a great grievance in the removal of the polling-place from .their township to Runnymede. The Waranga Shire Council, at a late sitting, p&sged n resolution affirming the necessity of reBtorir.jr the polling place to Corop. A petition bss heen got up bv the inhabitants, praying t!mt justice may be done them in this respect; and it is to be toped it will receive due consideration. •

Heavy Bnow storms have taken place about the heads of the rivers, and on the Upper Murrumbidgee and in the neighborhood of Yuss there has been a slight down fall of rain, On.the Lower Murrumbidgee rain is badly wanted; the country, it is said, requires a regular soaking, and if rain does not come before the Betting in of the hot weather, feed will certainly be scarce, and a trying season may as certainly bo looked for. Some slight showers of rain and snow havo fallen in the Monaroo district, but the'frosts have been unusually severe, and the grass has been kept back in consequence. From the North we hear that the feed is begi...

The Geelong Advertiser, in speaking of the. •vi."r"8drantag68'to"1ie oMained by the establishment of a meat preserving company in that Town, says:—"The establishment of another branch of manufacture—for bo it may be termed—would " : add further to the prosperity of the town, and direct men's thoughts into the practical channel of establishing on as wide a basis as possible tho manufacturing interests of the districts. We are .. not without evidence of what can be done in this direction by energy of character and judicious investment.
