THE , POLITICAL SITUATION IN VIC TORIA. The Election for West Melbourne. Molbourne, Monday. The political crisis in Victoria still con tinues; and the most intense excitement prevailed during a contest for the West Melbourne seat between the Hon. J. G. Francis and Sir Biy an O'Loghlen, and the latter, the candidate favourable ? to the Berry party, has been returned. The following telegram from the S. M. Herald's telegraphic correspondent will, show tho state of feeling in Melbourne and the dastardly conduct of the Victorian demo crats : — ' Tho West Melbourne election took place to-day, and passed off quietly, although con siderable oxcitemcnt was manifested. Stren uous efforts were put forward by the friends of both candidates, and the Jesuit was in doubt almost up to tho last moment. When the success of Sir Bryan O'Loughlen becamo known there was great cheering by the Government party. 'The votes polled wore : — O'Loghlen ? 1973 Francis ? ? 1883 Majority for O'Loghlen ? 90 At the ...

THE DROUGHT. (To the Editor S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 12 February 1878

THE DROUGHT. (To the Editor S. M. Herald. ) I Sir,,— The serious losses which have taken place in many districts of the colony from the . prolonged drought may justify a few words on the subject, and I shall be glad with your permission at the same time to answer '? a number of correspondents who, probably from having heard ti \J. had predicted 1877 would be a dry year, Seem to think that I must be able to say when the drought will break up. Now, in the first place, what I did was not to predict tthat 1877 would be a ctry year, out, simpiy to present iacts oi our past experience in an order which seemed to me to be justified ; and in the second place, X wouldxepeat what I have before stated, ?viz., that in this young country with limited experience it is improbable that a definite law of the recurrence of seasons of drought and , flood can have been discovered, when inolder countries, where weather has been studied for ages, no such law is known. Nevertheless, as our climatic condit...

POETRY. TWO AUSTRALIAN PICTURES. (A Tribute to the Memory of Captain Cook.) SCENE II.—Botany Bay, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 12 February 1878

POETRY. TWO AUSTRALIAN PICTURES. (A Tribute to the Memory of Captain Coolc.) By P. S. Wilson. Scene H. — Botany Bay, 1869. Ninety years have passed— and merry footsteps twinkle on the sod ; But that hardy band of voyagers down a stranger path hath trod — Downa path whose mystic windings cross the Future's viewless plain, On whose waste the foot once planted never may return again. True, the spot is little altered— Nature wears the look of yore, But the savage yell no longer echoes round the quiet shore. 'Where the wild man loved to urge his bark canoe amid 11.. ? bue Bjyiuy. Now a cloud of white-winged skiffs are darting o'er the placid bay Now tho sound of pleasant voices comes like bells upon the ear, And the eager heart beats swifter as some loved one draweth near. O, the tinted wings of Fancy !— how they bear us to the / skies \ ? As we read our happy fate niglances shot from beaming eyesl \ ?

COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. At length wo have, in keeping with .-ill other districts' in the country received tho long looked for fall of rain. Every dam or hole about tho district capable of holding1 a drop of water is now bank high. The rush of water down the creek hero on Wednesday can be imagined when the town reservoir, that has been empty for over two years, tilled in the short space of about two hours. It is now something; like three years since so fine a rain fell about these parts, .and the hopes of the farmers at present are naturally at the highest. For the past few days the weather has been beautiful — fine soaking showers, with bright sunshine intervening being the order.

On Wednesday the rain was much heavier with occasional breaks ; the air was coolor, tho thormoinethe register ing about 70 dogrees. Yesterday there was a cessation, and it has been fine since up to this morning, although moro seems to bo hanging overhead yet. This is a delightful change and is deserving of our hearty thanks.

COOTAMUNDRA v. TUMUT. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 12 February 1878

COOTAMUNDRA v. TUMUT. (to the editor.) Sir, — In the Tumut Times of the 8th instant appears a letter, having some reference to the above match, signed N. Emanuel. Why Mr; Emanuel should take up the cudgel and attempt to cast destruction around, no rea son is assigned, other than that a paragragh in your last issuo reflected upon himself and others — whether creditably or discreditably, he loaves us to surmise. -Surely nothing short of egotism could havo induced the writer to rush into print, for his effusion, which consists of mistatemonts, utterly fails to nortrav anv cluo to his idoas. The fre quent use of the porsonal pronoun 'I' in his short production at onco convinces tho reader that N. Emanuel, hon. sec. Tumut C. C., would also constitute himself business director, and by his doings and sayings would havo tho toam guided ; but whether this authority is yielded him by members of the team or not is questionable, and if not, his action in bringing this topic before the public do...

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 12 February 1878

THE WEATHER. Ouit Govommont meteorologist, Mr. II. 0. Russell, has proved a faithful prophet as to tho 1 break-up of the drought, though, we presipio, he was influenced in his prognos tications by scientific and painstaking ob servations rather than by the mere fancies of prophesy. On Monday night, that before our last issue, rain commenced, in very light showers, which gradually increased in power and volume during Tuesday, and on Wed I nesday at driving deluge continued to pour down upoh.us during tho greater part of the J day. As a result all the lower parts of the township and surrounding flats appeared as sheets of/wator. We have noticed by our exchanges ^that tho welcome rain has beon general through the colony, and that our intercolonial neighbours, who had also beon suffering from drought, has experienced the chari'gg. Locally, we have received an abundant supply — the. reservoir, was. filled ,in the sKort space of two hours ; it filled at Y7 p.m.Y!and between 9 and 10 began...
