BURROWA COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5TH. (Before W. D. Campbell and W. J. E. Wotton, Esquires.) Confiscation of Liquor. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

BURROWA COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5TH. (Before W. D. Campbell and W. J. E. Wotton, Esquires.) Confiscation of Liquor. John Fahey (who did not appear) was sum- moned to show cause why certain liquor found in his possession should not be declared forfeited to the Crown.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

THE Municipal Institutions of New South Wales reflect but little credit upon the colo- nists. Like many of the costly experiments of the horticulturist the tender exotics have not repaid the care and cultivation which have been bestowed upon them ; nor do we imagine that length of time or increased skill in their management will succeed in natura- lising these foreign productions among us.   Upwards of thirty years ago, under an Imperial Act of 1842, Sir George Gipps introduced a rude system of local self-govern- ment ; and Municipal districts, with Wardens and Councillors, were formed throughout the colony, wherever sufficient population per- mitted their location. For many years the municipal institutions thus inaugurated re mained altogether dormant. The inflexible and parsimonious rule of Sir George Gipps was but little calculated to promote the suc- cess of the new creations ; the local magnates very prudently declined to incur any liabilities   for wh...

Latest Intelligence. (FROM MESSRS. GORDON AND GOTCH.) [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] SYDNEY—AUGUST 7TH, 6·30 P.M.   The Mail-steamer takes away one hundred and deventy-two thousand nine hundred and thirty (172,980) sovereigns. Mr. William Busby has been appointed Director of the Mercantile Bank. The Minister of Works is inspecting the Northern Railway extension. In the Victorian Legislative Assembly, a direct want of confidence motion has been tabled against the new Ministry. The entries were numerous at the Singleton Pastoral and Agricultural Show. The Council of Education have decided on suspending (without pay) Mr. Bridges for two months, and Messrs. Matthews and Kealey for three months. The weather is unsettled. The cattle market has improved. Biddings have been spirited, best bullocks realising £8 15s.

CANCELLED CONDITIONAL PURCHASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

CANCELLED CONDITIONAL PURCHASES. In addition to the list of cancelled conditional purchases published in the Burrowa News of July 11th, tbe following selections have been declared cancelled, as being within the limits of the tem- porary Reserves for Railway purposes proclaimed on 10th and 24th March. 1874 :— Michael Carroll ...... 58 acres 2 roods. Michael O'Neill ...... 40 acres. Michael O'Neill ...... 110 acres. We remind our readers and all parlies in- terested that these lands, and the lands included   in the list previously published, will be open for selection, for the first time, on the morning of Thursday next, 13th August. We learn with some surprise that at the ad- jacent Lands Offices parties have already been permitted to re-select the lands thus cancelled. This error on the part of the Land Agents is the more to be regretted, as it will necessitate the cancellation a second time of these lands. The Gazette notice which revokes these Reserves is dated Sydney...

Camp- bell, Esq., Coroner, and a jury of seven, empan- nelled for the purpose of inquiring into the cause of death of Thomas Hughston, who was unfor- tunately drowned in attempting to cross the Burrowa River during the heavy flood of the previous Friday evening (July 31st.) Tlie jury having been duly sworn in view of tbe body which had been brought to the residence ot. Mrs. Thomas Preston (the mother-in-iaw of tbe deceased) in Jugiong-etreet, Burrowa, Nelson Bolton Hitch deposed : I am sergeant of Police stationed at Burrowa; on Saturday, August 1st, in the morning, William Venables reported to me that Thomas Hughston had been drowned on the previous evening at Hume's cross- ing-place in tbe Burrowa River ; I proceeded with Constable Campbell to search for the body ; the river was in high flood, and we saw nothing ; yesterday morning I made further search, and about 200 yard...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. REUTER'S TELEGRAMS TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS. LONDON—JULY 28.   The war in Spain is being carried on with increas- ing vindictiveness. Some Carlist partisans have been arrested and imprisoned at Barcelona, and since the shooting of Republican prisoners by the Carlist leader Dorregaray, reprisals have been made by tbe adoption of a similar practice on the other side. JULY 30. Another debate has taken place in reference to a dissolution of tbe French National Assembly. M. Maleville proposed a motion affirming tbe desir- ableness of an immediate appeal to the people, but it was opposed by the Government on the ground that a dissolution ought not to take place until the Constitutional laws shall have been passed ; and, after debate, it was rejected on a division of 364 to 332.   AUGUST 1. The Bank rate of discount is 3 per cent. PARIS—AUGUST 1.   The Assembly has definitely resolved to ad- journ, on the 6th August, to tbe ...

BLONDIN AT BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

BLONDIN AT BRISBANE.   The first performance of this most wonderful   man, which took place on Saturday afternoon, was a great success in every respect, as even the per- former himself could have hoped for. The num- ber who legitimately witnessed the performance was close upon 3500, but there was fully as large a number on the heights of Kangaroo Point and   other coigns of vantage. It is by evidence of the eyes alone that a person can realise the extraor- dinary and hazardous character of the feats which   Blondin goes through, with all the ease of a danc-   ing master performing the evolutions of a set of quadrilles. It is not until you actually see him coming dancing forward on the rope eighty feet above the ground, that the truth really flashes upon you, that the slightest accident — one moment's nervous hesitation, the slightest un- preditated false step or miscalculation, and the being whom you were gazing at wou...

STOCK AND STATION REPORT. [ROBINSON AND BESNARD'S REPORT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

STOCK AND STATION REPORT. [ROBINSON AND BESNARD'S REPORT.] Fat Stock.—We could dispose of 100 head of     good cattle, in lots, as people are now making preparations for shearing several enquiries have been made this week. We have 3000 fat wethers   being inspected for the Melbourne market ; we could dispose of a small prime lot for local purposes. Store Sheep.—We have no transactions to       report. We have a nice lot of about 900 full- mouth ewes (lambing), we could offer at a low figure. Store Cattle.—The high prices asked by owners     of this class of stock prevent deals being made, and the market is well supplied. We have 367 head stores being inspected at Cootamundra, and have other lots both in this and the Monaro dis- trict for which we could treat. Stations, &c.—We note the sale of Mr. John     Woods' Burra Burra North and South 180,000...

PRODUCE CIRCDLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

PRODUCE CIRCULAR. MORT AND CO.—The mails by the City of     Adelaide, via San Francisco, were received on the 24th, and those via Suez, by the Pera to Melbourne, on the 26th instant ; latest dates being by the latter vessel to the 12th June, or only four days prior to the closing of the London April-May-June wool sales, of which we are thus furnished with comparatively full particulars. The arrivals in time for these sales amounted to 293,380 bales, of which about 13,000 were forwarded direct to Yorkshire and the Continent. It is very satisfac- tory that this unusually full supply for a single series has been so readily absorbed, considering the complaints which had for some time been rife of the inadequacy of the demand for manufactured goods. It is estimated that about two-thirds of the wool sold was taken by foreign buyers, a cir- cumstance which undoubtedly saved the market, as the home trade at the opening showed symp- toms of weakness, based upon the ...

THE TENANT RIGHT. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 August 1874

THE TENANT RIGHT.   [CONCLUDED.]   Things seemed to be going on pretty much as usual in the valley where Mary continued to reside with her grandmother, and yet they were chang|ng every day. Many of the cottages in the village were in ruins ; and Mary shared her old dog's and her own food with more than one half- starved cat and cur that lingered about the lonely places where they once had friends. The chapel on Sundays was filled ; but there were few horses or cars waiting outside, where there used to be numbers, made ' sonsy' for the farmers' wives to ride in, by feather beds, covered with gaudy quilts. The young men that lounged about the door and against the walls bore no likeness to the old stock, and were careless, scampish-looking fellows, who more frequently handled a musket than a shillila. There were many white-headed old men ; but the race of ' strong, young, small fanners,' who rode a good horse, and wore boots and corduroys, had disappeared. Alt...

THE OAKWORTH COLLISION CASE.—COMMITTAL OF THE CAPTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 15 August 1874

THE OAKWORTH COLLISION CASE.—COM-   MITTAL OF THE CAPTAIN. (From the Melbourne Daily Telegraph.) WILLIAM EDGAR, late captain of the British ship Oakworth, appeared before Mr. Sturt and a full Bench at the City Police Court on Friday, to answer to a charge of neglecting to save life, in failing to render assistance to the crew of a fishing smack run down by his vessel. Mr. O'Loghlen, the Crown Prosecutor, appeared to prosecute ; and Mr. G. P. Smith, instructed by Messrs. Pavey and Emerson, for the defence. Before calling tor evidence, Mr. Smith desired that all witnesses should be ordered out of Court. This was accordingly done. The first witness called was the assistant-registrar of shipping, who produced the registry of the ship, and stated she was a new vessel, registered on the 2nd February, 1874. The master of the ship, according to the registry, is George Graves, whose name was en- dorsed at this port on the 25th instant. The first endorsement was that of William E...
