Correspondence, [We do not identify ourselves with opinions expressed by correspondents.] MAIL ARRANGEMENTS. (to the editor.) Sir, — As the railway will soon be opened I suppose the mail arrange* ments for this district will be materially altered, and I hope that direct mail communication between Yackandandah and Dederang will be one of the changes, for at present it is very awkward having to send letters to Yackandandah round by Myrtleford and Beech worth. It hikgs iiwu.uityo Ht ibhai; mj- receive a letter from Yack, and as we have only a tri- weekly mail it often is four days before we .receive a letter after posting. Thus, it generally takes us a week to send a letter and receive a reply. Tip the river it is worse still, for it takes three days to receive a letter from Yack. As Yackandan dah will be our nearest railway station I hope to see the change effected, and that some of your influential men in Yack will take the matter up and point out this incon venience to some of the M...
Heavy Floods. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891
Heavy Floods. ; .. , The result of the prevalence of strong south-westerly winds and of a heavy downpour of rain for 48 hours has been the most serious flood ex perienced in. Melbourne since%863. Recent rains^ helped to swfell the Yarra to winter height, b^Pffi'e winds on Snnday bahM&np^M^a^inj current caused by the late fall from finding an outlet. Great damage has been done by the water, which flowed over the low-lying ground at Gplling wood, Hawthorn, Richmond, South Melbourne, while the Saltwater River submerged large areas in the neigh bourhood of Footscray. The river improvements carried out by the Government and Harbour Trust ac cording to the plans of Sir John Coode, have had their first severe test, and may be said to have gi-eatly affected for the better the inhabitants of the flats on the south bank of the Yarra. Heavy storms prevailed at sea and in the bay, two small vessels having beeu lost on the Back Beach at Sorrento, involving the loss of two lives ; while a...

The Angeius Bird. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891
The Anf/eitts Bird. When travelling in the forests of Guiana and Paraguay, it is not uncommon to meet with a bird whose music greatly resembles that of an Ar.gelus bell when heard from a distance. The Spaniards call this singular bird a beilrirger, though it may be still aore appropriately designated as ths Angelus bird, for, like the Angelas bell, it is heard three times a dav morning-, noon and night. Its song, w^ich defies all description, con sists of sounds like the strokes of a bell, suc ceeding one another every two or three minutes, bo clearly and in an oh a resonant msnner, that the listener, if a stranger, ima gines himself to be near a chapel or con vent But it turns out thit tbe forest is the chapel, and the bel! a bird. The beauty of the Angelus bird is equal to his talent ; he is as large as a jay, and as white as euow, beside being graceful in form and swift in motion Tint thp mnnt imrioHt nwn««..»*-^ the Angelus bird is the tuft of black, arohed feathers on its beaut...
