ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE A CHRISTMAS PIC NIC. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 4 December 1869
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE A CHRISTMAS PIC NIC. (To the Editor of the Riverine Ilera'd.) Sir,—It ha9 occurred to me that Ecbuca ■and its district send many patients to the Sandhurst Hospital, and yet, I believe, there is no district in the neighborhood of Sand hurst that does less towards its support. I would suggest that as the Christmas holi days are rapidly approaching, when every one can afford a day for pleasure, that a monster , pic-nic be arranged to come off on either Boxing or New Year's Day, and that the Odd Fellows, Foresters and Rechabites friendly societies be invited to give their as sistance to the movement. These societies are instituted for the benefit of their fellow fflfin, and might very gracefully undertake the management; and I feel confident no captain on the Murray would refuse to give his boat for the day, for such' purpose, for the bare working expenses, and the proceeds of the pic-nic to be handed to the Sandhurst Hospital. If you> Sir, would give the sugg...

THE HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 4 December 1869
THE HARVEST. In all the agricultural areas round about Echuca, on both sides of the Murray, harvest operations are either in full swing or are being1 actively prepared for. Many of the hay crops, all of which have been heavy, are safely, gathered in, but on several farms cutting is Btill'progressing1 The growth produced by the .rains has been most astonishing, and owners of crops have been surprised on com mencing to cut to find how productive the unusual moisture has rendered their lands. Within the past week we have been shewn paddocks in which wheat is to be seen in every stage of growth. The seed is to be found germinating among plants just peeping out of the ground, and of every height to the matured and ripening grain-bearing stalk. A second growth of wheat now in ear, that was cut for bay in September, is by no means an uncommon sight. As far as we can ascertain the farmers generally in this immediate neigh borhood will allow only a sufficient quantity of wheat and oafs to ri...

So soon as an offiing is gained the different ships will be put through various sai...
TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 4 December 1869
TOWN IMPROVEMENTS. Little by little—slowly, but steadily and surely—is this good town of Echuca increas ing; its proportions. Gaps in the streets are being. gradually filled up, and temporary buildings are being replaced by others of substantial brick and mortar. In High-street we notice that Mr A. Mayne is erecting a fine new brick store on the site of the premises lately occupied by Mr Lewin. It will form when finished one of the finest shaps in the borough. In Hare-street Mr Hayward, we "understand, is contemplating a very consider able addition to his already capacious building, which will occupy some sixty feet of frontage to the street. We have been shewn plans of the elevation and internal arrangements, from which it appears it will form a handsome and commodious erection. Among other new buildings calling for notice we may mention n brick store in Anstruther-street, just finished by Mrs Clemens, whose success in business we are very glad to note. Several other improvements a...

The Riberine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, DEC. 4, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 4 December 1869
C|e Ijtftame lendi \jfSCHOOA, SATUJIUAY, DEO. 4, 1860. On the northern side of the Murray the talk is of the general elections. As is always the case on such occasions, in some parts there is a good deal of flutter and excitement, in others very little interest is exhibited as to results. A scarcity: of candidates is com plained of; and tbis is really no very marvel lous matter in many portions of New South Wales, 'fake Riverina for instance. Who but very rich local men, or residents of Sydr ney would care to represent the electorates it comprises? . The. expenses of members of these districts amount to no trifling sums in the course of twelve months. The cost of journeying to and fro between their constit uencies and the Metropolis is by no means an inconsiderable item in their yearly expendi ture in the public service. To country gen tlemen who have no means of supplementing their incomes in Sydney a residence of seve ral months in that city must be a severe tax on their resources...
THE RIVER NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 4 December 1869
THE RIVER NAVIGATION/ ' . Although the Murray has" risen "slightly during the past day or two, in 'sa few weeks the navigation season will, in all probability, be brought to a close. In the upper portion of the river it may be considered to be almost at an end. Late trips have been surrounded with so many difficulties in con sequence of the shallowness of the water, that it is not probable the larger vessels, at any rate, will again attempt the passage between Ecliuca and Wahgunyah with anything like full cargoes. The season, however, is an extraordinary one, and prolific of strange and unexpected changes. There is a possibility, therefore, of the recurrence of very heavy rains which might cause a further rise inthe Upper Murray.
