The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, NOVEMBER 9, 1877. THE DISPUTE BETWEEN THE HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 9 November 1877

An,. SwAN lIIn.r G.hZErTTr. rUBLISIirEn WEEKLY. KERANC3, NOVEMIBEIR 9, 1S77. 7HE DISPUTE BET 2'IVEEK THE HOUSES. A Parliamentary dead-lock now threatens; in fact a collision be tween the two Houses of Parliament, the Legislative Council and the Legislative Assembly, is imminent, if we are to judge from the stand the Council has taken in reference to the Railway Construction Bill, and also from the rumor now current, that it will throw out the Appropriation Bill, if it contains any provision for the payment of members. Possibly through the moderation of the Go vernment, and the action of the Berry Cabinet in yielding somewhat in the matter as to their railway po licy, a collision on the subject of the proposed new railways may be put off for the present. This week the Government have modified their pro posal for a direct line between Oak leigh and Melbourne, so far as to make the starting point from a line running south from Spring-street, so as not to trench upon the Hobson's Bay Ra...

SELECT POETRY. MISTAKEN KINDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 9 November 1877

Si ELECTOETRY. MISTAKEN XINDNESS. Under a spreading thistleleaf, A grass-bird built hernest,; And there her little breood she fed ,"-' And warmned them withlier bredst. And in and out she softly flew, With scarcely room to pass, So close the prickly covert drooped Its curtain to the grass. A gentle heart, in passing near, The leafy shelter spied; And with a loaing, kind intent, Turned the sharp leaf aside. It really seemed too rough a thing To shadow such a nest; Thepricksmight wound someunfledgedwing, - Or pierce some tender breast. Alas! the wisdom so unwise That knew not what it did! The friendly leaves from dripping skies The open nest had hid. And now the cold rain fellanew The roofless nest around; The covert from the storm was gone, The little brood were drowned. So may our sharp defences be A proof'gainst grief and care; A shelter from a fiercer storm, Or a more fatal snare.

THE STOCK SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 9 November 1877

THE STOCK SALES. Any stranger who had been a witness c the auction sale of stock on Friday, could not fail to have been struck by the great difference of price, between buyers and sel lers. It appeared that sellers had just en tered their stock to try the market, and find out if there were buyers; that process may have beenin a measure satisfactory to them selves, that is, to the extent of gratifying their desire to see if there were buyers, but at the same time they overlookedthe fact that it was apparent to all that the buyers were very weak, and had only come to buy stock if it could he had very cheap, and this brings us to the subject which our selectors and small stock holders should not lose sight of, and which is of vital importance to themselves, as well as being a matter affecting the general welfare of the com munity. We allude to-the fact that the season is drawing nigh the time when the feed will he burned up, if not already eaten up, and the grass will disappear, as it ...
