GOOLWA. September 19th, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 September 1869

GOOLWA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) t'eDtember 19th, 1869. I have just returned from a long tour through the country, and everywhere things are looking dreadful for Want of rain. The squatters' runs are without grass, and the farmers' crops will come to nothing. It has been altogether a frightful season, and what we shall yet have to go through Heaven only knows. I hear that the Bishop of Adelaide has issued a circular recommending that Wed nesday, the 23nd September, should be set apart as a day of humiliation, and prayer for rain, and it is believed that all the denomina tions will acquiesce in the suggestion. It is sad to lock at the shrivelled and scorched up appearance of the crops. Some of the farmers are turning their cattle into their wheat, as it can never be of any other use to them. The Wallaroo Times says:—" rlhe long continued drought is becoming a most serious matter on the Peninsula every day. Flocks of sheep have already to be driven every now and then a distance t...

The Riverine Herald ECHUCA, SATURDAY, SEPT. 25, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 25 September 1869

ECIIUCA, SATURDAY, SEPT. 25, 1869. : We have been accused of writing gloomily on our weather prospects. We can only say we bare stated what is palpable to every one in these districts with regard to a drought, from which they, have already suffered con siderably, which promises to continue, and from the disastrous results of which they can discern no hope of deliverance. We confess we can perceive no benefit that would accruu from disguising the truth ; and evpn if it were temporarily expedient to do so, we should deem it incompatible with a duty we have recognised, and endeavored to carry out ever since our existence as a journal, to' refrain, from seizing every possible opportunity for impressing on public attention the necessity that exists for making some. provision for the periodical visitations of drought to which we are subject. In the early part of this year so great was the distress occasioned by the con tinued want of rain, that a day of. public humiliation and prayer was ...

HAY. [FROM OUIl OWN CORRESPONDENT.] SeDt. 22.1869. I The Pearl steamer arrived here on Thurs day afternoon, and, alter discharging1 cargo, proceeded on her down trip on Saturday.—A heavy hail storm passed over the township on Saturday, and during the night some smart showers of rain gladdened the hearts of the stock-owners, but Sunday came in fine, and we are again in receipt of summer weather. A rise in the river is reported at Gundagai, the height being 6ft 3in above summer level. If this is true we may look for a speedy change in the steamer time.—On Wednesday 3000 fat sheep, Haines^s (Balingeramble), crossed here (Dawson in charge) en route for Melbourne, and Mr Tilden gave delivery yesterday to a purchaser of 1000 head of cattle from Messrs Desaillys* stations —I notice Mr Dawson has added to his premises ' —the Crown Hotel—a large and commodious bath-room. As he has gone to the expense of sinking a well, and has happily got an illimitable supply of water, this will be a great ...

ECHUGA POLICE COURT. In the Police Court yesterday, before the Police Magistrate, Mr Langford, and the Mayor, Mr Towle, Balfour Hope and George Ellison, the former a young man of two or three and twenty, and the latter an aged man, and both strangers in Echuca, were charged with stealing a shirt, the property of William Wallis, on the previous night. Mrs Wallis saw the men passing the clothes line, on which some clothes were hanging out to dry, about ten o'clock. She distinctly saw one of them take a shirt from the line, and ran after them calling on her husband to follow. tDn coming up with the younger prisoner she accused him of stealing the shirt, when he took a damp towel from inside his waistcoat and gave it to her. He then took the shirt from his pocket and handed it to her, but afterwards snatched it from her and run away. As he was passing the Echuca Hotel she called out to Mr Mitchell, and he came out and caught the prisoner, shortly after which Constable Balfour came up an...

THE POLITICAL CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 29 September 1869

THE POLITICAL CRISIS, Mr Byrne, the new Treasurer, and Mr Rolfe have addressed the electors of Crow lands. The latter gentleman appears from all accounts to have been accorded the better reception. Mr M'Kean, the new Minister of Lands, has delivered bis sentiments to the electors of Maryborough, for which consti tuency he is opposed by Mr Samuels. Mr Reeves has appeared before the enfranchised of Collingwood, who however seem to show a dangerous preference for his opponent, Mr Vale. Mr G. P. Smith, the late Attorney General, has addressed a large meeting at Hawthorn, and obtained an almost unanimous vote of confidence in the M'Culloch adminis tration. The Minister of Railways has been favorably received in the Learmonth district. Mr Ronald Campbell is spoken of as likely to oppose him. Mr Thompson, of Messrs Kilpatrick and Co, and Mr Swallow, of Sandridge are said to be likely to be nominated for West Bourke in opposition to the Minister of Mines.

PIERCE'S PANORAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 29 September 1869

PIERCE'S PANORAMA. As a local production, and one of a superior kind, Pierce's panorama calls for a more prominent and extended notice than we are in the habit of giving to exhibitions of the kind. Captain Gus Pierce, by whom it was painted, is by no means an unknown man. From one end of the valley of the Murray to the other the name of the skipper of the Lady Daly and the Corowa is familiar as a household world. It is not strange to the people of Adelaide nor wholly unknown to those of Melbourne. They wot thereof in Castlemaine, and it will be re membered welt by the older residents of Sand hurst. " Anyhow, they can't say nothin' bad of him," as the intrepid captain might him self observe, and most of them are aware that " as a versatilist he is a success." At any rate this must be admittid of a man, who can command a steam vessel, paint a panorama, and do a variety of things besides which most men find considerable difficulty in doing, with equal facility and success.

NEWS BY THE MAIL. The English mail ship Bombay, arrived at Adelaide on Sunday, just four days in advance of her contract time. The telegraphic news from London is to the 3rd September. At the August wool sales the biddings for Aus tralian wool were very spirited. Sydney wools fetched from l|d to 2d per lb advance, and Port Phillip £d advance. A meeting of influential colonists had been held in London, and a committee was ap pointed to consider the relations existing between England and the colonies. They liBve addressed a circular to the various colonial administrations, urging them to send representatives to a conference proposed to be held at Westminster in February next, for the purpose of discussing theBe relations. A new company has been started in London proposing to lay down a light telegraphic cable from Ceylon to China and Australia. The first section of the line will be from Ceylon to Penang, and highly encouraging prospects are held out to investors. The great internation...

SWAN HILL. 22nd September. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 29 September 1869

SWAN HILL. [from the puntmax.J 9,2nri Santfimber. I It appears I was hoaxed about the digging out the tank on the Lalbert road; I have seen some of the Road Board members lately, and they repudiate the whole thing; in fact, I overheard some of them reading what I had written regarding their intentions, but it was only productive of the time-worn remark "don't they wish they may get it," meaning, of course, the Discontents down this way, and the members of the droving fraternity. They are somewhat given to chaff too, are the members of the Swan Hill Road Board, they tell us down this way that we are a "great people, and deserve to have the lion's share of their funds expended on our town; more particularly now that we are going in for suburban villas and rural retirements, and that when,"—Oh! what a smile illumines tbeir faces as they emphasise that mono syllable—"we effect a separation, we can apply our rates and Government subsidy—if any, in paientbesis—to wiiatever worn we deem ne...

ECHUCA POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 29 September 1869

ECHUCA POLICE COURT. In the Echuca Police Court, on Monday, before the Police Magistrate (Mr Langford), William Jones and Edward Gee were charged with stealing a pair of trousers, the property of Robert Stocklin. The prosecutor had pur chased a new pair of trousers, and taken them into the Royal Hotel, near the Railway Station, and laid them on the table. The prisoners were there, and they all drank together. Prosecutor got drunk and fell asleep, and when he awoke the prisoners were gone and the trousers had disappeaied. The theft was fully proved against the prisoner Jones, who was sentenced to two month's imprisonment in Sandhurst gaol. The other man, Gee, was discharged. Yesterday the following cases were disposed of by the Police Magistrate:—Loo Choo and John Bull v S. D. Repp—£10, for wages Judgment given for £8, and 30s costs.

LONDON WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 29 September 1869

LONDON WOOL REPORT. " Messrs 'Willans, Overbury & Co.'a Ciroular states:—The third serifs of Colonial wool sales for ths present year GDmmenoed on August 12, with the following catalogue:—Sydney and Queensland, 2,600; Port Phillip, £96; Yan Die men's Land, 24; New Zealand, 2,209 ; Cape, 737; making a total of 6,166 bales. The gene- i rally good harvest prospects, and the demand for wool which sprang up immediately after the close of the last series, created an impression that the August salts would ocen at an advance, whioh was variously estimated at from Id to 2d per lb. These expectations have, however, not been realised. The catalogue of the opening night comprised a selection of wool of rather an ordin ary character, and, as regards the growth of Victoria, afforded but an indifferent test of the market. Speaking generally, however, no im provement can be quoted upon the closing rates of last auctions. Both the home and foreign trade are fairly represented, but biddings s...
