A VISIT* TO^THE CHINESE CAMP; (From the Bendigo Advertiser: Sept. 28th.) In his official capacity as warden and police magistrate, Mr. Cogden, fcecompaini&d by- the Mayor, detective Alexander, .and sergeant Drought, visited the ChfiJese Camp oiii'Saturday afterjnoon. Chin Kit, the interpreter, also formed 'one .of the party. No intelligence had reached llMegCanip of an intended visit, and therefore itVaf.feen in its every day habit Immediately upon 'arrival, the party proceeded to the various holds or chanties which adorn this celestial retreat ; and though the abrupt and unceremonious inspection of rooms and private bondoirs, where occasionally were met damsels in half-English, half -Chinese attire, might naturally have caused irritation and annoyance, the .visitors were received with apparent welcome. It is almost needless to eay that all these buildings are wooden. The colonial style of bar is adopted, and indeed, eo far as the front view of the houses is concerned, no di...

STOCK, STATION, & PRODUCE REPORTS. [MR. JOHN BRIDGE'S WEEKLY REPORT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 16 October 1875
STOCK, STATION, & PRODUCE REPORTS. [Mn. John Bridge's Weekly Report.! Station Properties are in rather less favour, owing no doubt to the unsettled condition of the London wool market, and to the fact that prices have for a length of time ruled very high. Fat Stock. — At this week's sales no improve ment was perceptible, the tendency being to lower prices, and, owing1 to want of rain and feed in many districts, stock-owners are no doubt sending forward stock more freely than they otherwise would. There is, however, nothing to justify any material or permanent decline in prices. Store Stock remain dull of sale — duller than they should all things considered. The want of rain in the north is no doubt one reason for this ; and just now, in the western and southern dis tricts, our grasiers are more in favour of sheep than cattle. At the same time store 6tock do not command much attention. Lambs are worth 10s. to 15s. each, calves 15s to 50s., and pigs still sell very readily, at...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 16 October 1875
Intimately as the prosperity of the colony \ depends upon the success of its pastoral en- 1 terprise, it is anything but flattering to its ' ruling intelligence to notice how small a share the Government has hitherto taken in 6timulating its activity. Seasons come and go with but very little improvement in our external circumstances, and while in the sister colonies every effort is made to divert our internal trade to their capitals, the au thorities in Sydney look on with apparent indifference, while the settlers are wrestling with difficulties almost insurmountable, and find their energies paralysed by the calmness of official lethargy. The opening of the railway line to Gunning would have been at this period of the year an important advantage to our commercial interests; the distance saved of traffic by teams although short would have afforded a sensible relief throughout this community; yet the Government is so dilatory iti its action respecting this matter that the opportunity ...

At a Municipal Banquet, in Liverpool, EarlDerby deprecated any unwise intermeddling with, or an expression of indifference to, Continental affairs ; p/ he said that England's great interest was the-A maintenance of peace. The importance of tba | Herzegoyinan insurrection had been exaggerated, but the autonomy of the provinces was impracti cable on account of the difference of religion.

THE TREATMENT OF WOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 16 October 1875
THE TREATMENT OF WOUNDS. Modern surgery has made remarkable advances in various directions, but in none is the improve ment more marked than in the application of means to assist the repair of tissues which have been damaged by accident. Broken bones and dislocated joints are now adjusted with compara tive ease, and are kept in position by ihe aid of mechanism which permits as much comfort,as can reasonably be expected under the circum stances. Independently of the improved means of ad justing and securing displaced parts, the general methods of treatment have undergone a change for the better. The surgeon does not now tax his ingeuity to devise remedies to assist the pro cess of repair, so long as the injured structures remain free from disease. It is, in fact, recog nised, as a maxim in surgery, that the union of divided tissues aud the development of new structures arc health}' functions, and not to be stimulated into a condition of excessive activity without detriment to their i...
