THE PALMER RIVER GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 August 1874
THE PALMER RIVER GOLD-FIELDS. That there is gold being got on the Palmer is a fact worthy of notice, when we consider that hardly a pound of meat leaves the butchers' shops without payment, and that in gold. Now, in con- sidering that 81,000 lbs. of meat are consumed monthly, this gives, at 1s. per lb., £4050, which in gold wouid be about 1000 ozs. per month, and this quantity only taken by the butcher, besides that which the storekeepers receive, for nearly all transactions are made in bullion, that being the currency, and in addition to the fact that diggers are hoarding their gold and will not sell at the prices offered, £3 15s., they considering it worth a deal more. There is no doubt that between Mount Surprise and the Palmer there will ere long be a large number of stations formed ; for the country, in many places on the Tate and Elizabeth Creek, is very fair for both cattle and sheep, com- prising a large extent of black soil and cork-tree plains, which are undeniable for sto...
AMERICAN PILGRIMS AT ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 August 1874
AMERICAN PILGRIMS AT ROME. Rome, June 9. — Tbe Bishops Dwenger and Theard waited upon Cardinal Antonelli yesterday, to express the very great desire of the American pilgrims to pay a visit to the Pope. They were con- sequently received by his Holiness at noon to-day, together with some American Catholics residing in Rome, the total number present being about two hundred. Several cardinals, prelates, and dis- &nbsp; tinguished Roman personages attended the audience. Mgrs. Dwenger and Theard read ad- &nbsp; dresses to the Pope, expressing the devotion &nbsp; of the pilgrims and all American Catholics. The Pope replied : " Amid the darkness of the world, this is a ray of light. The enemies of the Church are numerous, but great consolations reach me from the Old and New World, where the true faith has been so marvellously developed that it has been necessary to increase the number of dioceses. Still a great part of the continent remains occupied by false religion...
LONDON MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 August 1874
LONDON MARKETS. &nbsp; WOOL.—Messrs. Charles Balme and Co.:— The &nbsp; attendance and competition at the sale-room are well maintained, and, with the exception of middle class—especially faulty—fleece wools and washed &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; half-breds, prices continue to rule about on a par with the March quotations. Noticeable features are the comparatively high relative range of value of all descriptions of scoured wool, and the re- covery in prices of pieces and locks, which show &nbsp; &nbsp; an advance of 1d. to 1½d. on the opening sale &nbsp; rates. The principal support during the series &nbsp; has been derived from the French and foreign branches of the trade, who have taken by far the largest proportion of the quantities offered, and on whom the burden of competition has mainly &nbsp; fallen. The stock held by the home trade will, presumably, hardly do more than cover adequately th...

THE TENANT-RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 August 1874
THE TENANT-RIGHT. 'You have a fine time of it among the quality, there's no denying it,' said Mary Connor to her foster-sister, Grace Kenny. 'You have, miss, a fine time of it ; and why not ? Sure it's your birth- right, dear. You have as much right to the car- riage as I have to the piggin,' she continued, lifting it up from the ground with a cheerful smile, and poising it upon her head with the grace of a Grecian nymph. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 'But, Mary, why do you not come up to the big house, and be my own maid ? My dear uncle lets me do just as I like. I might have twenty own maids if I wished. BeII will soon go away to be married so do, Mary, come ; surely I have a &nbsp; right to my foster-sister ? 'Every right in life, dear ; next to my grandmother.' &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 'and, Phil—' added the young lady ; ' but &nbsp; indeed...
MANNERS OF THE LATIN AND ANGLOSAXON RACES CONSIDERED. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 August 1874
MANNERS OF THE LATIN AND ANGLO- SAXON RACES CONSIDERED. Which people—English, Germans, or Americans &nbsp; —has the worst manners collectively, it would be &nbsp; invidious to attempt to decide. The Latins agree as to the bad manners of the three races, and very impartially distribute their dislike among &nbsp; all alike. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Each one of these Northern races is emphatic in its judgment as to the impoliteness and offen- sive bearing of the other two. Englishmen abhor German habits and ways of expressing their ideas &nbsp; as heartily as they do the American. Ameripans are not backward in finding beams in both their eyes. The German type is, perhaps, the most coarse and callous, the most indifferent to the comfort of others, because it is the least sensitive itself to the finer physical elements of nature ; it annoys without compunction, or scarcely con-...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 1 August 1874
OBITUARY. The remains of the oldest resident of this town will be interred in the Catholic Ceme- tery, at noon to-day, when it is expected that a large attendance of friends will testify to the respect universally felt for the deceased. Mr. JEREMIAH HOUGH was a native of Nenagh, in the county of Tipperary, of which town he was a resident until his emigration to New South Wales, upwards of 30 years ago. Soon after his arrival in the colony, on the first formation, of a township at Burrowa, he removed here, &nbsp; and for some years successfully conducted &nbsp; the Catholic Denominational School. He afterwards received the appointment of Deputy-Registrar of Births, Deaths, and Marriages in the Lachlan District—an office &nbsp; &nbsp; which he held for many years. About four years ago Mr. HOUGH was seized with paralysis, from which he never rallied. During his prolonged illness he was faithfully attended by his children, particularly by his youngest dau...

RED RUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874
RED RUST. &nbsp; The immediate cause of red rust, mildew, &c., is perfectly well known, but I am not aware that any reason has been yet assigned why they attack one species or variety of wheat and not another, and why in one variety they appear on the blades only in any quantity, and but slightly on the stems, and in another equally on the stems and ears, destroying the grain, so that the crop is injured or entirely lost, and why their ravages are so much more extensiye in the colonies. &nbsp; Various observations have led me to the con- clusion that it depends simply on the looseness or softness of the cellular tissue of the parts attacked by the fungus, and this appears to me to be satis factorily proved by the following occurrence in a plant of the rough-chaffed white wheat. It is well known that this variety of wheat is remark- able for resisting mildew of all kinds, and a plant of it growing among my mildewed wheats, and remaining free from the fungus, q...
