HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 27 November 1869
HAY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Since my last we have had nothing but all sultry weather. Yesterday evening however we had a thunderstorm which has cooled the air a little. Of news, the chief is that W. L. Smith has again been brought up before Captain Brown for sly-grog selling, and sen- tenced to three months' imprisonment and a fine of £30. He has appealed against the decision of the Court, and is at present out on bail. We had an amateur concert here on last Friday night which went off very well, I hear, but as I did not attend I cannot give any particulars. Professor Parker and Miss Beaumont are at present up here and draw very good houses. They performed on Satur- day and Monday evenings, and give another entertainment to-night. I do not hear of any stock moving about here at present. The Riverine, Captain Bowers, arrived this morning from Echuca, and the J.H.P. yes- terday from Wagga Wagga. The Went- worth left for Echuca on Saturday. By the way the Ministry is out and we ...

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
CRICKET. The cricket match—President V Vice-Presi dent—bad again to be postponed on Saturday last, in consequence of a large number of the players being absent. This does not look well forthe cricketing spirit of Echuca. There are plenty.of young men in this town who we are surprised do not gladly avail themselves of tho opportunity of joining the club, and we feel confident tho old members would gladly hail any importation of new blood, and coach recruits if necessary. Al though the above mentioned match did not take place, tho gentlemen on the ground got up a scratch match, and Messrs Morris, Cameron, and Simsnds distinguished them selves with the willaw. Several of tho other players found the bowling of Weavers, Morris, and Matthews rattier difficult to play, all being dead on the stumps. Below the scores of President v Vice-President, srf/ar as it has gone:— President.' ' / 1st Innings. j ^ D. Cameron, run out. W. Ford, b Weavers. J. Jones, b O'Dwyer W. Moore, b Hayes .vv...:. ....

SWAN HILL. 24th November. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
SWAN HfLL. I IviMM THE PU'NTMAN.I 24tli November. It is a strange, but nevertheless true, thing that clerks are a sensitive kind of people, and apt to turn up nasty. Take a road board clerk, for instance; if an unfortunate fellow in the course of his scribbles animadverts upon the doings of a board the clerk is up in arms at once, privately, if not publicly, and I pity you if lie has the rating of your pro perty. Then again, a clerk of the bench becomes your enemy for life if you only give him a little public advice as to how he should hold his pen, or sound the letter e j and so it is with the clerk of the weather; last week I just made a few snarling remarks about heat, and lo! the ink was hardly dry before a change set in. 5fes, the weather has been wonderfully cool, and yesterday we had about I'ho smartest thunderstorm I ever remember • experiencing;. Jj'or the first half-hour the i rain regularly poured, and since then we have had a continuation of showers more or less severe. ...

STATE FOREST AT BAM A. We have been informed by Mr Ferguson, Inspector of State Forests, that he has issued instructions to the Crown lands bailiff of the district, that saplings and young trees up to eighteen inches in diameter are to ba pro tected from cutting1 in the state forest at Bama. The large timber can be cut down by persons properly licensed. The trees which aro to be preserved will have to be conspicuously marked. Any undue waste-is to be avoided, and the licenses of those persons will be cancelled who trangress these regulations, which are preli minary to a more specific set, that will be issued probably about the commencement of the en suing year. The Crown .lands bailiff is par ticularly instructed to show no undue favor to anyone, and to carry out his duties widtffbe strictest impartiality.

PIERCE'S PANORAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
PIERCE'S PANORAMA. An exhibition of this capital panorama took place in the Echuca Town Hall on Monday evening. There was a very good attendance, and the entertainment was one of a very in teresting character. Some excellent additions have been made to the scenes previously ex hibited, of which we have already given a description. Among others we may mention a picture of Mt. Cook, on the Northern Is land of New Zealand, which is perhaps one of the very best of the set; and an excellent view of the town of Wanganui. The capital music of the Messrs Wright, and the fine singing of Messrs Kendall and Morgan added considerably to the gratification of those present.

THE FLYING SQUADRON. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
THE FLYING SQUADRON. During the stay of the Flying Sqadron at Melbourne there are to be, it appears, a series of fetes in the city and neighborhood, some of which are contemplated on an exceedingly grand scale. A grand ball was given to the officers of the Squadron on Monday night at Toorak, the invitations issued for which amounted to about one thousand. Last night a masonic ball was given to them at Emerald Hill, which was expected to be a very grand affair. Tomorrow evening a complimentary ball to Rear-Admiral Hornby and the officers of the squadron, will be given by the com mittee of the Melbourne Private Assemblies, and is to take place in the Prahran Town Hall. On Monday evening the Admiral and officers will be invited to patronise a grand ball at the Exhibition Building, in aid of the Sailors' Home Building Fund and the Bove Tolent Asylum. Besides these gatherings, which are in a manner public, a number of private entertniners are seeking the prestige 01 a few naval uniforms ...
ECHUCA RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
ECHUCA RACES. The second meeting under the auspices of the Echuca Racing Club will take place on the 10th inst. There is every prospect, we hear, thnt the sports will be of an interesting and highly satisfactory character. The sale of booths will take place, we uuderstand, in a few days. We have been re quested to remind intending competitors, and others interested, that entries for the Handicap and Steeplechase will be received up to nine o'clock on the evening of Friday next, the 3rd inst. The Club, we regret to say, has experienced a great loss in the late lamented death of one of its stewards, Mr H. N. Powell. We have not yet heard who is likely to replace the de ceased gentleman, whose knowledge of racing matters rendered his assistance and advice invaluable to a country club, as they would indeed have been highly esteemed even in metropolitan sporting circles. His death has naturally cast a gloom on the club, which it will require time to remove.
LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
LECTURE. A lecture was delivered by the Rev P. P. Agnew, in the Echuca Town Hall, last evening, the subject being the " Lights and Shadows of a Drunkard's Life." The Hall was crowded with a respectable and attentive audience. Dr Crossen was voted to the chair, and in a few appropriate remarks introduced the rev lecturer, who commenced by stating that an impression existed that the wines of the early ages of the world were not intoxi cating. He showed, however, that there was j abundant testimony to the contrary, and he drew a vivid picture of the evils of which strong drink has been productive among mankind in all times. He pointed to the foolish custom of using intoxicating liquors on any and every occasion. On joyful occa sions it was thought necessary to drink for the purpose of exhilaration. On sorrow* ful occasions in order to cheer the heart. At births, at baptisms, at marriages and deaths there must be drink. The pernicious habit of " taking a drop" on.all sorts of pretences ...

The Riberine Herald. ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 1 December 1869
EC1LU0A, WEDNESDAY, DEC. 1, 18GI). The leading journal of New South Wales, the Sydney. Morning Herald,; is drawing attention to the important subject of irriga tion. In a recent artioln.it reviews a late re port on the irrigation works |in that district of India watered by the riv^- Godavory. These were commenced twentjione years rigo, and have up to the preseri.t time cost £500,000, oil which outlay the water ass'eslment is yield ingabout 50 per- cent.. A sum, however, of £150,000 not' yet granted is still required for the completion of the works, |About a mil lion of acres have! been watered by canals, but the supply, of water is not yet. sufficient for the wants off the population. The vastly increased productiveness of the country irri gated would, seetn to warrant a much larger expenditure even than is contemplated ; but the Indian Government, like those of the.
