THE PROBABILITY OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 12 March 1878
THE PROBABILITY OF WAR. Some renwwks in the Times of December 21 upon the attitude of England in regard to the war are of peculiar int6i;esfc a'fc the pre sent time. The journal says: — ' Can 'any one doubt that if we were to put our land and our naval forces in a compromising position peace would be at the mercy of an accident? A war, if we drifted into it, would become a fight for Turkey, in spite of ourselves a fight for the maintenance of an administrative system which no one defeuds or expects to last. . . It would be one of the most helpless enterprises into which human energy was ever cast. Granted that we should be. victorious; Turkey would not be . saved for ;all that, She would go to pieces in the shock of prolonged battle, nothing can save her power in Europe. .Ipoin. ruin .but a speedy peace. Let the contest; proceed, for, another year, and every, part 'of her loosely knit frame will be in danger of dislocation.. It would be a beautiful triumph ;of states-* manship if, a...
DEATH OF MR. H. G. DONOVAN. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 12 March 1878
DEATH OF MR. H. G. DONOVAN. ' Deatii, thou art terrible— the tear The groan, the knell, the pall, the bier. And all we know, or dream, or fear Of agony are thine.' It is our painful duty to record the death of Mr. Henry Gregory Donovan, solicitor, of this town, and we do so with the more poignant feelings of regret as we find all ties of friendship so suddenly snapped, and. the memoir of past days shadowed by the cruel reality of death. At the early age. of 27 years Mr.. Donovan has been taken from a sphere of usefulness, where his abilities were recognised, and his many virtues and manly characteris tics fully appreciated. At the time of our last District court Mr. Donovan was so in * disposed as to be unable to attend to his j\, professional duties ; but his illness was * not at the time regarded as serious, .being considered to be low fever occasioned by the oppressive , heat and 'over-study. Symptoms of typhoid, however, .appeared, and Dr. O'Qonnor ? who had; been in at tbeodanc...

THE INTERCOLONIAL BOAT RACE. (By telegram to S. M. Herald.) Melbourne, Wednesday. The intercolonial boat race between New South Wales and Victoria took place to-day. A large crowd lined both banks of the river, and the various vessels at the wharf were also crowded. The start did not take place till some time after 3 o'clock. Owing to tho steamer Rescue, with the empire and Governor aboard, sticking on a mua DanK just at tne start, tnose auoara were unable to see anything of the race. The Sydney c.rpw had the choice of sides, and selected the Sandridge shore as most advan tageous. They secured a very good position in rounding the Junction bend, when they were about twelve feet ahead, but at Hum bug Reach they were very badly steered and hugged the bight too closely. So soon as the great river, of about two miles, was reached, Melbourne went ahead, and rowing veil within themselves, won ej^ly by two lengths. -No correct time was talfcen, but it is said that4Jia minutes is the nearest...
