MR. HANLEY BENNETT'S LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 13 March 1877
MR. HANLEY BENNETT'S LAND BILL. . The Land Bill introduced by Mr. Hariley Bennett last October for amending and con solidating the Land Laws may be briefly ex plained. Its chief object is the total abolition of the present system of selling crown lands by public auction ; and clause 15 of the bill reads thus : ?;??? it mi i aj ii ? a -i ? - . xnat on ana alter tne passing oi tins Act j it shall not be lawful to' sell any crown lands ] by public auction except town and suburban - kinds.' _ Next in importance to the above, we pre sume, is the classification of crown lands and the fixing of given prices on the differ ent descriptions according to value. This principle is, doubless, an excellent one ; but whether it is possible to give it practical effect it is difficult to say. It is one, how ever, well worthy of consideration, by our legislators when next discussing the laws for the administration of the public estate. The clause (26) embodying this principle reads as follows : ' Crow...
CULTURE OF BARLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 13 March 1877
CULTUEE OF BABLEY.. (Illustrated Sydney News.) To grow a profitable crop of barley, it is necessary to choose a piece of rich, free soil, lying warm and free from stagnant moisture. The soil must be reduced to a fine state of tilth, at lea st two ploughings being necessary, and sometimes more, the ground being further worked, well with the harrow, or scuflier, and rolled to reduce the lumps. Finally, the seed should go in when the soil is in a state to give a quicK growth xrom tne start — neither very wet nor very dry. Then if the season should , prove genial, without excessive wet or drought, a heavy return may be looked for. Unless these condi tions be present, the yield will be poor. A stiff, cold soil is altogether unsuited for this crop, nor will it flourish on land deficient in strength. From this it will be seen that the choicest soil oil the farm and the best treatment are necessary. The price ordinarily ruling would, not appear to offer sufficient inducement to settlers to ...

All the cattle, and sheep - % 3 tli-it could travel have been taken away in quest of food and water. The water the people are obliged to use at Coota mundra is only fit for pigs to wallow in, aiid even that is so scarce that it is guarded day 'and night to prevent the cattle using it.

LOCKUP AND POLICE QUARTERS. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 13 March 1877
LOCKUP AND POLICE QUARTERS. (TO TILE EDITOR.) Sir, — The question is often asked ' Why does the Government not call for tenders for the erection of the building to be used for the above purpose ?' It would well repay anyone to read the report of tho speeches of hon. members of the Legislative Assembly on kindred matters which were brought before them on a motion for adjournment on the 1st instant. It would there appear that the fault lies with the Colonial Architect's office, which is said by the parties most interested in saying so (the officers them selves) to be short handed, but by others to be amply officered but to be very inefficientlv conducted. But whatever be the cause, it is a scandal to any department of the govern ment that the money for works of such absolute necessity as this should be voted year after year and be allowed as constantly to lapse. Ajid it is very clear that this will continue to be the fate of all our promised improvements unless some heavy pressure is ...

A meeting of gentlemen interested in mark ing the contemplated opening of the South ern Railway to Murrumburrah was held this afternoon at Dillon's Commercial Hotel! It was well attended, and comprised the leading men of the town and neighbourhood.

COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 13 March 1877
COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. „ During the week the weather baa been changeable. -The early; part was hot, and the end cloudy, predicative of rain. On Thursday about 1 o'clock a steady shower of half an hour's duration fell, and again on Sunday during the day a light shower, fol lowed by about an hour's steady rain during the night but no greater quantity has yet . come to our share. Ploughing, which should generally commence towards the end of this month, will in most instances be delayed and consequently affected, if a general downfall does' not soon come. The district now as sumes a very dry and parched appearance, every particle of exposed grass being eatfen up by travelling sheep. . Business, owing to the generally bad condi tion of the district, is very dull, and there are no transactions of importance to report. Fat cattle and sheep, principally for local consumption, are somewhat in demand and very scarce, which is not to be wondered at considering the condition of the ...
