CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 February 1869

CORRESPONDENCE. {To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) Sir,—In your report of the case of Mr Taylor and myself, heard in the Police Court on the 2nd instant, you have not given my statement correctly of the cause of what took place on the 30th ult. You gave Mr Taylor's version in full, and in reporting his evidence on oath you make it appear Mr Taylor was talking to Mr Payne in his office when I drove up in my buggy, and without any reason used the .first expression of " You're an ass and a humbug." As defendant I could not give evidence on oath, but I spoke the truth, and which materially alters the aspect of this affair. I admitted, as you report, having used the language complained of, but under provo cation, and stated that so far from having any intention of coming in contact with Mr Taylor (who I have strenuously endeavoured to avoid for reasons he well knows), or intentionally drawing up my buggy opposite his office. I was driving up to my own offices to get documents to acc...

An Amusing Divorce Case.—In the Court_oLDivorce, on .Saturday, before Sir James.Wilde, the case of Davis v. Davis (clerk) was heard. The petitioner was the wife-of the Rev. D. W. Davis, of the diocese of Ripon and Manchester, and her alleged reason for the divorce was his continued ill treatment, because she was disinclined to prosecute a suit in Chancery against her brothers, who were trustees of her father's will. She said that ho had struck her several times, and once threatened her with a bill Hook. Mrs Davis herself was the chief wit ness to make out her case. She was a person of education," but gave her evidence in rather ah eccentric'-manner. When asked whether she .was really alarmed at the bill-hook, she said ' that she thought her own thoughts, that she had stated the facts, and.that the Court must] draw its own conclusions from them. When 1 Sir James Wilde pressed her on the point she replied^ " You are a judge, judge for your self." At a later part of her cross-examina ....

The Riverine Herald ECHUCA, SATURDAY, FEB. 6, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 February 1869

ECHUCA, SATURDAY, FEB. 6, 1869. We think the unusual importance of the subject justifies U3 in giving, in another column, a full report of a meeting of the Central Board of Health, which was held in Melbourne on last Wednesday, for the pur pose of adopting measures for preventing the spreiid of that dire epidemic—the small-pox. All doubt as to its existence in Victoria has now been dispelled, and it behoves us to take infinite care that so terrible a plague may be strangled in its infancy, and swept off the fair face of a colony so long and so happily spared from its wrathful and calamitous visitations. As long as we could see any reasonable ground for hoping that the first few isolated cases might have been really no worse than chicken-pox, so long did we refrain from commenting on a subject which could not popsibly be treated of without occasioning public alarm. It is a moot question whether more injury is not effected by the premature disclosure of such intelligence than by its e...

DENILIQUIN. Chronicle Office, February 3. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 February 1869

DENILIQUIN. Chronicle Office, February 3. Since our last Eorac extremely heavy and beneficial rainB have fallen, and nearly the whole of the country appears to have participated in their benefit. Here something like 1$ inches fell, but that we believe has not been up to tfie average in other places, as in some sufficient fell during the earlier storms to give supplies for six weeks, these however may perhaps have to he set aside against other places which we hear failed to receive any large quantity. Stock business is still dull, end we have no transactions to report, although some three or four are now in process of negotiation. The crossings are limited than ever, the only lot here being about 3000 of Iilackwood's 6heep on Sunday for boiling down at Moama

THE MARKETS. Melbourne, 3rd February, 18C9. JOHN GEORGE DOUGHAUTT'S REPORT. Fat Cattle.—The fat cattle market was supplied with 1,027. The supply for the week was a Email one, a great portion of which were heavy, good bullocks, one lot of which had travelled all the way from Meniudie, on the Darling, and, considering the state of the country, looked very well after such a long journey. Biddings • were very spirited throughout the saie, and prices show a marked improvement on the late rates ruling last week. Good beef wade fully 25s a 1001b. There is very prospect of the market continuing good.

HORRIBLE SUICIDE AT SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 February 1869

HORRIBLE SUICIDE AT SAND- HURST. (from the bendigo advertiser.) The inquest on the body of John Hallpike, who was found dead in his workshop in High-street, on Tuesday, was resumed yesterday before the District Coroner and a jury of twelve. The fol- lowing additional evidence, throwing further light on the dreadful circumstances, was taken :— Cliarles Goodwin, son of Mrs Anne Goodwin, recognised the knife in the policeman's hands. Deceased used it for cutting his bread, and for other purposes. On the 27th January witness went to deceased's place about a wheelbarrow he had to mend for witness's mother. Deceased was perfectly sober, having taken the pledge about a   fortnight before. He did not speak much that day. Davii Weir, vinegrower, Kangaroo Flat, deposed he had known the deceased for about eleven years, and he was a sober, steady mnn. Four or five weeks ago, however, witness noticed that he was not so steady, and found him very forgetful and absent. Somebody remark...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 February 1869

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. From our latest telegraphic intelligence we gather the following:— Sale. One of the passengers by the immigrant ship Tornado arrived here with her two chil dren on last Friday. The child took very ill on the road. On their arrival here the child was found to be suffering from typhus fever. The health officer, Dr Hedley, is taking every precaution to prevent the spread of the disease. Sydney. Mr J. Stewart brought forward his motion in the Assembly on the 5th instant, with reference to the abolition of the postage fees now charged on newspapers. Mr Stewart had hardly explained the nature of his mo tion when the Speaker's attention was called to the fact that there was not a sufficient number of members presont to form a quo rum, and the House was thereupon adjourned until Tuesday next. The members of the Assembly in opposi tion, with their friends, have gone for a pic nic to-day to Balmoral. The weather unfor tunately is showery, and the attendance consequen...

PASTORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 February 1869

PASTORAL. In consequance of the prolonged drought in New South Wales, from which the pastoral and agricultural interests are suffering in a severe and almost unprecedfented manner, a day of humiliation and prayer for rain has been ordered by the Government to be ob served throughout the colony on the 13th of the present month. "We hear," says the Monaro Mercury, *' that the Matong and Jimenbuen runs, near Buckley's Crossing-place, formerly the pro perty of Mr Amos Crisp, have changed hands, the purchasers being Messrs Watson Brothers, of Burrowa and Sydney. We have not heard the price, but believe it is near L4000." "Notwithstanding the prejudice which exists against the use of bi-sulphite of lime, it appears," says the Sydney Mail, " to be ex tensively used as a preservative by butchers and salesmen, and by private families; and, apart from all considerations affecting the export of meat so prepared, it may be turned to very good account in this colony.

MESSRS L. MACPHERSON AND CO.'S REPORT. Saturday, Gth February. Horse Maiiket.—Our "Wednesday's sale was limited. There were buyers for good medium draught, but the hoi6es brought forward were not good enough for re quirements. Our Saturday's sale was very well attended through the day. The market opened quietly, but the bidding rapidly improved as better lots came up to tho hammer. Although a very good day's business was done, our best price for medium draught was £29 Cs. Ploughing having commenced in many localities, there is a steady and increasing demand for good draught horses; prices are, for good medium draught, £20 to £30; heavy draught, £30 to £40; hacks and light harness, from £7 to £15. Dairy Cattle —Only six head forward, of which we dhposed of four, at prices ranging from £4 7s 6d to £5 7s 6d. There is a steady demand for good quiet milch cows in full milk.

ECHTTflA POLICE COURT. Monday, 8th February. (Before Mr Langford, P.M.) George Ormond Bntler was brought up, oharged with having feloniously stolen from Mr Holmes, of the Friend in Hand Hotel, Eohuoa, one bag containing goods Dnd wearing apparel to the value of £10, on the oth instant. The evidence went to show that on the above named day the prosecutor paoked np several articles of wearing apparel in a bag, as he was about to go up the country. The prisoner had been staying in his hotel during several days previously, until ha had been told to leave, as he was unable to pay his bill. On Saturday the prisoner offered to Mr Wilson, of the Duke of Edinburgh, a piece of tweed oloth for sale.

DENILIQUIN. Pastoral Times Office, 5th February. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 February 1869

DENILIQUIN. Pastoral TimoB Office, 5th February. The recent thunderstorms have extended from the Murray to Rockhampton, and though some districts have had heavier raina than others, yet, on the whole, the area of inland ■ territory watered by these storms is something enormous. There was a fearful Gtorm on Thursday at Albury, and a thunderstorm at Hay. 50,000 travelling sheep had been on Went worth Beserve. 32,000 Bogan lliver sheep were near Hay, as well as another lot of 8,0"0. At Deniliquin, Mr Mann, for Dalmalioy Campbell and Co., reports sale of 100 head of cattle, on account of Mr J. Dickson, Caroonboon, to Mr H. Gwynne, Werai, price satisfactory; and, for Ettershank, Eaglestone and Co., 400 cows, on account of Hon John Hay, same purchaser. On Monday 2000 sheep passed Deniliquin from Mr Blackwood's Hartwood station, for boiling-down. The news from Dubbo is still doleful; there had been no rain there up to the 29th January, and there was no stock news of any importance.

EGEUCA, WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10, 1869. A humour, which gave very general satis faction amongst all classes of our townsmen, wa9 freely bruited in Ecliuca on last Saturday night. It was to the effect that Mr Langford, our Police Magistrate and District Surveyor, who was to have set out for Ararat on last Monday, bad received, a telegram directing him to remain in Echuca. The brief com munication did not say how long he was to stay with us; but, so ready are we to believe in anything like pleasing intelligence—even when it is carefully wrapped up in doubt— many persons were seen rushing about inform ing each other that "the border town was not to be degraded after all." On making in quiries we ascertained that such a telegram had been received, bu: whether we are to look upon it as a respite or an entire alteration of a most disagreeable programme, we are at present unable to say. However, in common with our constituents, we most fervently " hope for the best," and we are inclined to trust...

FOREST LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 February 1869

FOREST LANDS. Tbe Sydney Morning Herald offers the following very sensible remarks upon the indiscriminate clearing away of forest trees : —" Many years have not elapsed since there were in the vicinity of Sydney several con siderable areas of forest lands. With the exception of a few patches here and there there is now nothing of the kind. It is necessary to go a considerable distance in order to see any of the grand old trees which were formerly so abundant. Here and there may be found one such tree, or perhaps two or three of them, which have either been saved from the axe by a landholder more provident than usual, or because they were too gnarled to split easily. But no great number of thes3 vegetable giants can, we believe, be found together within many miles of the metropolis. It has long since been found necessary to go a long distance not only for fencing stuff, but even for firewood. The work of destruction is going on in every place from whence wood can be brought to marke...
