The Volunteers. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 16 April 1870
The Volunteers. WE understand that it is the intention of the Govern ment to allow the claims for land to all those volunteers who were efficient on the 1st January, 1868, and who are entitled to time for past services. Originally, it was understood that those only who had attended a certain minimum number of drills (12) during previous years, would bc so entitled. This would have boon most unfair to the volunteers, as part of tho returns of one year were, wo believo, lost or mislaid, consequently, some who had attended with commendable punctuality to their duties during tho wholo of a very trying period to the force (1SG4), would have had no claim for services of previous years. We believe, (not having tho Act to refer to) that there is nothing in thc Act which could be so construed us to render it necessary that those entitled to time must havo attended a minimum num ber of drills during any previous year. This being so, it is an act of simple justice, but at tho same time ono for...

THE AUSTRALIAN SYDNEY, SATURDAY, APRIL IG, 1870. The News by. the Mail, THE mailnews by the Avoca, as telegraphed irom Adelaide on Monday night, is very far from being unimportant. The latestintelligence comes downtoMarch 15th,thus giving us Euro pean news in twenty-seven days ; but this is nothing to the rapidity of communication which we may shortly expect. Amongst the passengers to South Australia by the mail steamer was Captain Noel Osborne, of the Boy al Navy, a near relative of Captain Sherard Osborne. He comes out as the Naval agent of the British and Australian Telegraph Company, for the purpose of making arrange ments for the extension of telegraphic com munication to Australia. The cable is now laid as far as Aden, so that the recent predic tion of the London Times, to the effect that in thc course of tlie year 1872 there would be communication in two days with all parts of the world, stands a fair chance of fulfilment. The determination of the Imperial Parlia ment to carr...

Macleay River. (FROSI OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Kempsey, March 21. WK have just emerged from one of the severest downpours tbat this part of tho colony has experienced for some timo. At this particular season of the year, which ls tho commence ment of autumn, when such continuous torrents of rain ara not among the many things desired, or oven looked for by our most intelligent and observant farmers, it almost seems as if tho general order of things in regard to seasons for tho future aro to be reversed. At all events it has proved a ' . winter of discontent " with our corn-growing fraternity. It commenced raining heavy lost Thursday three weeks, and it has been ono perpetual rain, with little or no intermission, during the whole of that period, which is twenty-four days. To-day, for the first timo during tho twonty-four days of gloom, old Sol has deigned to 'show the light of his countenance upon us.for nearly twelvo hours.
