COUNT VON MOLTKE. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 25 January 1887

COU-T T'O MJIOLTKE. A pleasant account is given by Edu-rd Pietzcher in the forth German Gazette of a visit made in spring to Count von 'Ioltke's retreat at Creisau. Twenty years ago, as IHerr Pietzcher says, the name of Creisau was never spoken of, but M3oltke has made the place famous, just as Bismarck has thrown lustre upon Varzin. "Here, in rural quiet; far from the activity of the city Field-Marshal Count von Moltke has set up for himself a Tus culanum, where in the utmost seclusion he recruits his strength after the £fatigue of the winter. Iaving inter course only with his nephew 'and his immediate neighbors, he assembles herenew forces for his work. Travel lers for pleasure seldom come into the district, since Creisau lies far from the great highways. Staying last spring at the adjacent villiage of Graditz, I was enabled, by the mediation of the clergyman, to pay a visit to Creisau. On a beauti ful spring day we proceeded by the field way to our destination. In tlhe course of ...

Ten years ago the mnaxUimlu consumlptio oil a hot wind day was 12.000,000gal. at the present time doulile that quantity would barely sullice to satisfy the wants of the coinuunlity, and, with a total supply of about 21,000.000gal., the higher levels are without water on holt days, while a winter day's requirements are now equal to the highest suummer day's consumption of a decade ago. The sources of supply that were relied on iii those days worll now bie altogether insufllicient to mnaintain the reservies in the Yais Yan .and its subsidiary reservoirs, and had it not been for the supplies obtained froln the Wallaby and Silver Creeks, recently laid under contribution, there is every reason to believe that Melbourne and the district would have suffered seve...

TYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 28 January 1887

TYEI.S. [FROM OUR OWN COIRIISPONDE'T.] As influental meeting of the resi dents anl ratepavers of this district was held in the local schoolroom on the 20th inst., the object of the meet ing being to consider the present nnail arrangements. After some discussion it was resolved to petition the Postal Department to establish a daily mail service between Traralgon and Wal hlela, calling at Tyers en route. It has been found that the present bi weekly mail arrangements are quite inadequate to the requirements of the district, in consequence of which a vast amount of mail is conveyed to and from Trar.algon and Tyers by private individuals, and I believe I azo under the mark when I say that quite two-thirds of the whole is con veyed in this way, obviously reducing the post otlice here to little better than a farce. We are now provided with commodious public offices at Trarnlgon with every convenience for the des patch of mails, and a direct line of coaches plying between the towns above ni...

TIIE OOJULAA TRA.I A i;: TI:R.ALLG;O AND NARnItACAx. On Tuesday last the President and Engineer of the Traralgon Shire ac counpanied by Mr. A C. Groom 3I. L.A waited upon the Premier and explained to him that the tramway from Boalara to Mirboo, passed through three miles of the Karrae:u Shire, but that the council of that shire declined any re sponsibility as to its construction or future management, and the deputa tion asked Mr. Gillies to advise them what to do under the circumstances. Mr. Gillies took great interest in the matter and went to a considerable amount of trouble in connection with it. He considered that it was a great pity that the public should be deprived of the benefits of a tramway through any apathy on the part of the Narractan Council; and lie suggested that that Council should be asked under the 7th section of the act, for an order to con struct a portionand transfer such order to the Traralgon Shire. The deputation then withdrew.

SERIOUS FLOODS IX QUEELYS LAD. LOSS OF LIFE. Accouxrs continue to -come in of distress and damage caused by the recent floods. The first communica tions from the Logan district since Thursday have been received, and show that the residents on the southern coast part of the colony suffered ter rible hardships and great damage from the sudden deluge. The furthermost limit of communication with Logan is Waterford, and beyond that no infor mation has yet been gained of the extent of the damage the residents in the Upper Logan and Albert district sustained. A horseman, who forded the creek with much difliculty, alleges that the scene on the north side of the river was .one of terrible desolation. The inhabitants were gathered on the high ground, half clothed and homeless. Waterford township was inundated, and the bridge is believed to have gone. The height of the water capped the mark of the 1864 flood by 12 feet. The uncertain intelligence gives the friends of people in the flooded dist...
