MR. PLIMSOLL AT DERBY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 29 November 1878

MRt. PLMISQLL AT DERBY. Recelitlv Mr Plimsoll addressed his conl stituents in the Drill hall, Derby, where there was a large atteindance of the electors. The han. gettleman, after touching briefly on questions of domestic legislation, referred to England's present position in India, and particularly to the mission to Cabul. He thourght that causes were in operationi, and action was being taken by the Government which, if not carefully guarded, would lead them into a war from which no advantage to any party concerned would accrue. Ad verting next to the Eastern Question, he proniounced the Treaty of Berlin a tempor ary and unsatisfactory solution-temporalry because, although Russia gained certain ter ritory, and might, therefore, be assumed by some to be satisfied with the result of her work, there was an open sore left in the forming of Bulgaria into two feeble States, which would tend to further intrigue, and, in his opinion, to further aggression. The Greel people were profoundly ...

THE AFGHAN WAR. LONDON, Oct. 10. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 29 November 1878

TUIE-AFGHtAN-VWAR. - : LonDox' Oct. 10. The excitement consequent upon the in sulting conduct of Shere Ali to the British mission continues unabated, and while differ ing in opinion as to the wisdom of the policy which provoked the affront, the whole British press unanimously demands prompt reparation or chastisement of the Ameer. This prevalent feeling has not been :essen tially modified by a letter from.Lord Lau rence, published in The Times, in which he condemns "thb meddlesome poliey";of the Viceroy, and advises the employment of conciliation, not force, agaifist Shere Ali. Most of the Continental journals see in this crest a crisis in Indian history, and believ ing that we have -to deal with a greater power lehind the Amee-r, counsel energetic action. Russian organs, which at first affected surprise and pain at our suspicion of Muscovite istrigue, are growing every day more exultant and insolent. The fact of a military alliance with Shere Ali is ad mitted, and an outline of the...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 29 November 1878

IAGRICULTURAL NOTES* The rITnin-,rc Star observes i:-Som very large yields are expected in this dis trict during the forthcoming harvest. One large farmer near )Mount Arapiles expects to have at least 12,000 bushels of grain for sale, and to thresh 15,000 bushels, and another at Dimboola has some 60 i0 acres, which will probably yield more than the amount above mentioned. It is farm ing upon such a scale as this that pays. I l'leuro-pneumxonia has made its appear ance amongst the cattle in the Lancefield district. Several cases have come under our own personal observation during the past week, says the Ilet?ary, and unless some stringent measure be at once adopted to stop its progress, the chances are that some valuable herds of cattle will be deci mated. The reports coming to hand from the country districts during the past week or two vary considerably as to state of the crops. avourable naccounts, however, greatly prepond0rate, and there is good reason for believing that this seas...
