THE MURDERS BY THE BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 13 December 1878

THE MURDERS BY , THE BUSHRANGERS. e -,The telea wni w ublished yesterday, is fully 'corroboratedlhy reports in the various papers today. : So many .rumours. liave' been afloat of late thjatwe can easily under stand tlie doubts of tliipuliblic as to whether the gang of outlaws 'is ih the colony or not. One thing is certain, however, namely, that 'four men made off with the Yarra wvunga pirntsman's boat, and that owing to their refusal to reply when challenged, two shots were fired at them. A telegram ap pears in the Argus this morning from WVahguonyah, and is to the same effect as that published in the Evening News last night. What makes the affair more feasible is that. several friends of the Kellys are known to reside in the ieiglborhood of Tarrawonga, and it is surmiised that the outlaws have been hiding in that neighbor hood for some considerable time, and that the whole affair, with'reference to an at tempt to cross the' Murray into the sister colony of New South Wales, was well...

ENGLAND AND AFGHANISTAN. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 13 December 1878

ENGLAND AND AFGHANISSTAN. A telegram from the Daily News special correspondent at Simla states that the Ameer's message forwarded by the British Envoy-" You may do your worst, and the issue is in GCod's hands," are words scarcely likely to be brooked. The Viceroy's envoy, Gholani llusseim Khan, will arrive at Simla at the end of the week. While at Cabul lie was kept in a sort of honourable durance, but was well treated, and received presents at his departure. He is of opinion that the Ameer, whom he was informed is at heart friendly to us, .wished to have nothing to do with either Russia or England. The Ameer's reply is considered the most impertinent communication addressed to the British authorities in India since the lays of Tippoo Saib, and the conviction in Sintla is that it renders war inevitable. Now that it is $qooning apparent that the Afghan resistqnce w ill bh for midable, many of the native princes are coming forward with offers of service. The Viceroy has cordiq:ly wele...

PANIC IN A THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 13 December 1878

PANIC IN A THEATRE.: The shocking results of the panicmin a Liverpool theatre, will once more direct at tention. to the dangers which attend the congregation of large numbers in public places; and the painful lesson should not be suffered to pass away without some ef fort being made to secure greater safety. It has been very often and truly urged that the chief peril is of an imaginary character, and that a moment's reflection ought to calm tihesudden fears of an audience. Save in its more painfully disastrous charcter the scene of the night of October ISth very closely resembles the history of every panic in a crowded theatre. In the middle of a comic soang, an altercation or fight created a commotion in one corner of the pit; those at a distance became excited, without knowing the cause; and then, through malice or terror one of the most stupid spectators bawled out the fatal word " Fire." The effect was electrical. "I saw the people rise as if in one mass," says Mr Coyne, "and sw...

MOUNT VESUVIUS IN ERUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 13 December 1878

MOUNT VESUVIUS IN ERUPI'ION. A correspondent of a contemporary sends an account of the ascent of Vesuvius during the eruption on Tuesday, September 24th. The party of four included one lady, and only one guide was taken. After descirbing the " tremendous climb" to the summit, the writer says : We determined to make the descent to a depth of at least 200 feet. After passing the narrow ledges we found-the inside lined with the sama description of materials as on the outside (but hot, and streaming with sulphurous fumes), and therefore quickly, easily, and safely reached thie bottom, but not one of us was in any way prepared for what we were now called upon to witness. The actual crater is placed almost in an amphi theatre,three-fourths of which are enclosed, while one-fourth is open. The enclosing walls rise above the bed of the crater from 250 or more feet in some parts, apparently composed of sulphur. The diameter, judg ing by the eye, from one side to the other is about 300 yards, ...

ENGLISH MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 13 December 1878

ENGLISII -AIL NEWS. -0-o- We received our files of English papers by the mail Satuday. From them we clip the following :- " THE GLASGOW BAINK. The consternation excited by the stop page of the City of Glasgow Iank has given place to a feeling of indignation noiv that the stupendous losses have been revealed. The balance-sheet shows that the liabilities amount to £12,404,297 Ss 3d. The assets fail to reach this sum by £5,190,983 1ls 3d, and to this is to be added the paid-up capital of one million. The total loss is, therefore, £6,190,983, 1s 3d. A call of £500 or £000 per share will be necessary, and this, a Glasgow telegram says, means ruin to four-fifths of the share holders, it being calculated that of the 1200 persons holding stock, the burden of payment wrill fall on the lsal 200. The examiners say in their report: At an early stage in our inquiry it became apparent that questions seriously affecting the course of management by the directors and managers of the bank were involv...

REPUTED DUMMYIS?l.• Tam enquiry into the bona fiesr of ier tain licensees on the Gannawarra run, that has so long been talked about has been fixed to take place on Thursday next. What the result will be,ol course it is premature to say, but it is un doubtedly a source of gratification to all concerned, to know, that there is a possibility of having the state of un certainty that has prevailed for some time, definitely settled either one. way or the other. The land which is al leged to be held by dummies is a strip about 20 miles long on the banks of the Murray. The 'soil is rich from sedimentary deposits, and is capable ,of producing almost anything. If those who have selected this land ha've done so with the intention of making.them selves a home, it would be cruel in the extreme to deprive theni of it; but if on the other hand, they have allowed themselves to become tools whereby unscrupulous persons can rob the co...

A powerful electric light was .the result of these experi ments, but the problem of its division into many small lights was a puzzler. It has been reserved for' Mr Edison to solve the difficult problem desired This, he says, he has done within a few days.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 13 December 1878

AGRICULTURAL NOTKES Harvest operations are now being actively carried on in the early districts, and new wheat is coming to market freely. Though but a few weeks ago the crops, as a ride, had a most promising appearance, and were expected to yield heavily, they are not turning out so well as could he desired. Rust has made terrible ravages within the last twvo or three weeks, and many crops that promised well have had to be cut for hay, or have given a very poor yield of grain. .It seems as if this scourge is getting worse every year. Takeall is also causing a great deal of injury to the grain crops in some localities. In the late districts rust ap pears to be extending very rapidly, and pro spects are somewhat gloomy, Owing to the dry weather lately, the gross is changing colour in many localities, and the country is beginning to assume its usual summer sp. pearan ce.-Telegraph.
