A FEROCIOUS DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
A FEROCIOUS DUEL. (Nevada Transcript.) At Bodie, Mono county, on Tuesday afternoon, Jack Braslan and a man named Blair, who have for some time been in partnership in the business of mining and prospecting, met in the bar room of Pollock's boarding house and commenced an angry dispute concerning the terms of a certain location they had recently made. They were both under the in fluence of liquor, Braslan more so than Blair. After quarrelling for some time which claim Blair disputed, saying he was willing to fight him at any distance, from a handkerchief length to forty paces. This challenge Braslan — whose pistol and belt were lying on the floor a short distance from him — accepted, ask ing for time to 'heel himself,' which he proceeded to do by buckling on his belt. The two men went out into the street, appearing more pleasantly dis posed toward one another than they had been at any other time during the day. Placing themselves less than eight feet apart, at a signal from one they b...
THE STOWAWAY'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
THE STOWAWAY'S STORY. (Cambridge Press.) Last week, upon the arrival in the Alex andra dock, King's Lynne, of the full rigged ship Dorset, a man who gave the name of William. Mace, and stated that he was a relative of James Mace of pugi listic celebrity, was sent from the vessel to the workhouse infirmary in a very low state of health. It appears that he had 'been in the East Indies, and being like ? many others desirous of making his way back to England, he managed to secrete himself on board the Dorset, and was not discovered until she e*ot far out to sea and discharged her pilot. Mace then came from his hiding-place beneath a boat lying bottom upwards on the roof of the deckhouse. He explained to the captain and the crew his object, and the former consented to save the man from further trouble on the condition that he would work his passage home. This he pro ,,.mised to do ; but it was not long before he became unruly, and threats were made that he should be put in irons. This /....

RAILWAY CHARGES. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
EAILWAY CHAEGES. The following letter has been addressed to the Commissioner for Eailways, and a copy sent to us for publication : — ' Sir, — As the people of this district con sider they are subjected to many hardships in connexion with railway administration, and that they do not reap a fair advantage from this branch of the public service, I beg to call your attention to the following griev ances of which we feel just cause of com plaint. - ' Tho enormous charges of 57/3 and 41/ for first and second class tickets respectively from Murrumburrah to Sydney, 60/3 and 43/- from Cootamundra to Sydney, and similar: rates to Goulburn or other stations, are altogether out of proportion to those made at the nearer stations say between Sydney and Eooty Bull; and Seven Hills.

SPORTING NEWS. RACING. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
SPORTING NEWS. By Tttebor. EACINGk Two or three neighbouring townships are going to hold their Autumn meeting, on the Queen's Birthday, viz., Young and Yass, with Gunning on the 27th, when a good day's sport Ta&y be fairly looked for. The nominations for the Birthday Handicap, at Young; closed with seven subscribers, and if the handicappers deal at all' leniently with them I shall look for tlie winner from Mr. J. Curtin's stable in Eeprieve or Errowangbang. The Handicap Trotting race closed with three, and the Handicap Hurdle race with four subscribers. The Yass programme sets forth six events. The entrances, which close on Thursday, 23rd May, are to be made with Mr. S. Pem broke, at the Eoyal Hotel, before 8p;m. on that day, and it is notified the weights of ' the handicap races will be declared the same evening. The Birthday Gift of £-20 with a sweep of 30/- will probably produce a good field, and visitors to the township on that day will doubtless ha-ve little cause of oo...

SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
SYDNEY PRODUCE MARKET. Mr. Graham Coulter's reportfor weekending May 16: —The arrivals of maize in this market during the past week have greatly decreased, a remarkable increase in the price is the result, aud since that the price has at times ruled as high as 4/3. On Saturday last several lots realised 4/, and on Monday 4/3 was easily obtainable. The market was almost bare,. the steamers, arriving. in some cases being only half rilled, and '-no arrival of sailing vessels. A few of the latter have now arrived, consequently a. re duction in the price has taken place, and 4/1 is looked upon as the highest figure. Oats have varied in price and at present the demand is not very good. Lucerne hav remains dull, and oaten shows no improvement. Potatoes and onions are unchanged, the market being principally supplied with the former from New Zealand. In dairy produce the advance in butter predicted in last week's report has been accomplished, and the demand for prime qualities at highest quo...

COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
'COMMERCIAL. Herald Office, Monday. Tun weather sinco last report has been quito bright and warm during thft day, more resembling in some instances spring to autumn. The eurly mornings are slightly frosty, the evoiiintrH shfirp and lecen. A little ram would be very acceptable again, at* the ground is getting hard, in fuet too much so to please the majority of farmers. Peed is plentiful, aud there should be ample for cattle to live upon during the winter months. Business during the past week has been fairly active, and storekeepers are doing their usual steady trade, nearly ' all of whom have recently opened up new and extensive stocks. Miss Finch has removed her milinery business to one of Mr. Percival's ' row,' opposite this office. We learn that cattle have declined £1 per head, owing to large arrivals hi Sydney from the north. The following are the wholesale prices for. the under mentioned produce at Cootamundra : — Hour, fine, £15 ; seconds, £13 Wheat, 5/ # bushel Pollard, 1/G $...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 May 1878
CEIOKBT. We are at last informed that Mr. I. D. Walker has so far succeeded in his prelimin ary arrangement that he has promised to visit the Australian colonies next season with a team of gentlemen. . This, to say the least, is a step in the right direction ; and when that is so ably backed up as to have at their head one of the great Southgate cricketing family, I think we may now fairly expect to see and form a very good idea of the superiority of amateur as against professional cricket. Individuallv SBeakinsr. I look upon a team of professional English cricketers when travelling around as nothing more or less than as they would term it a good spree ; and I am sure I cannot go~ very far wrong when I ask you to follow the late team under Lilly white, through some of their little escapades to substantiate rny views. It may possibly be remembered their freaks more than once brought them up to the bar of the police court ; to say' nothing of various disturbances on more than one cric...
