Henry O'Neill.—The   plaintiff sued to recover £6 8s., damages illegally placed on 32 head of plaintiff's cattle impounded by defendant. Mr. Donovan for plaintiff. Catherine Corcoran deposed : I know defen- dant ; I recollect defendant impounding my   cattle ; I paid the damages for 32 head ; my cattle are quiet ; I know the wheat paddock be- longing to defendant ; which is nearest to M. Cor- coran s house ; part of it is properly fenced, but some of it is not ; some of the fence is certainly not one yard high ; in some places the cattle could step over it, and in others they could get underneath ; it was not strong enough to keep out cattle, nor high enough to baulk them. By defendant : I consider your paddocks insuf- ficiently fenced. Henry O'Neill deposed : My man impounded the cattle in my absence ; they were impounded, I believe, from...

LOST IN THE BUSH—FEARFUL SUFFERINGS.—     The Alexandra Times of Saturday reports :—" An     educated and apparently respectable man, named Thomas Bartholomew, was found on Monday last in the Puzzle Ranges, at the head of the U. T. Creek. He had been without food for four days, and when first seen by Mr. Fry was crawling on his hands and knees, and in an exhausted con- dition. Mr. Fry got him on his horse, and   brought him in to Vining's Hotel, Alexandra. In company with Warden Pitcairn, we went to see the unfortunate man on Wednesday. He was very feverish, much scratched and bruised. He said he had been four days in the bush without food or sleep, and wished to be kept quiet. Mr. Pitcairn shortly after sent Dr. Fergusson to attend to him. The doctor, on examination, found that the soles of his feet were as black as coals, senile gangrene had set in, and that the nails of his big toes had already dropped off, and that...

[BROOK & FOSBEUY'S REPORT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 22 August 1874

[BROCK & FOSBERY'S REPORT.] Our Show sales commenced on Friday, the 14th instant at about 11 o'clock, and were opened by Mr. A. G. Finlay. The bulls submitted were of a very superior description, but did not command the prices that we should have expected, and although the bidding was brisk in some instances, the sales throughout were characterized by a very marked want of competition. This we must attribute to the absence of buyers from a distance, who were deterred from being present by the very unfavourable weather we have had of late. On account of Messrs. Gibson Brothers we sold eleven bulls, chiefly the progeny of their stud herd, viz : Bismark, to Mr. M'Gill, 27½ guineas ; Commentary, to Mr. Frater, 15½ guineas ; Bob to Mr. Johnson, 15 guineas ; Right Bower, to Mr. Michael Ryan, 17 guineas ; Fitzwilliam, to Mr. J.

THE LOST PORTRAIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 22 August 1874

THE LOST PORTRAIT. BY MRS. CROWE. SEVEN years had elapsed—Pietro was married, and had two children ; the cottage where these scenes had transpired was pulled down ; the vineyard was a vineyard no longer ; and the sorrows and distresses of their former owners had become a tradition in the neighbourhood, when one day a stranger arrived to inquire for Giuseppe Marabini. But no one could give him any intelligence : Giuseppe had gone away, nobody knew whither, and had never been heard of since his departure. But although these worthy people could give no intelligence themselves, they were not the less desirous of obtaining some from the traveller. They wanted to know whence he came, who sent him, and whether he could tell them what had become of Nina. But it was in vain they sur- rounded and questioned him ; he evidently came to make inquiries, not to answer them ; and not a word could they extract to satisfy their curiosity. When they were assured of this hopelessness of their endeavour...

EXTKAORDINARY ACCIDENT.—A Madras corres-     pondent reports the following to the Medical Times and Gazette :—One morning, in the midst     of the visit, word was brought to Dr. Paul that a man had been brought to the hospital with a live fish in his throat. Accordingly, there was a general rush made to the verandah, where he saw a coolie, aged about twenty, walking in, sup- ported by a man on each side, breathing with intense difficulty, and in great distress. The story was soon told. He was that morning employed in emptying a tank and in catching the fish that were left floundering when the water was drawn off. In his eagerness he had one under each foot, one in each hand, and, to make sure of a fifth, he tried to secure it by taking its head between bis front teeth but the fish was too quick for him, and wriggling itself free from the teeth, made its way into the pharynx. A fish of the same sort and size was produced. It was lik...

THE REGENT ARAB IMPORTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 22 August 1874

THE RECENT ARAB IMPORTATIONS. (From the Australasian.) MOST of our readers have seen the notices appear- ing lately in this journal of the recent impor- tations of Arab entires, and probably a great many have inspected the animals whilst on view at Kirk's Bazaar. It has been allowed by good judges that some of these horses are the best samples of the Arab ever seen in Australia ; and we have had handed to us a letter from a wealthy Arabian gentleman, now resident in India, in which some particulars are given respecting these horses. Our correspondent's name is Ali Abdoola, and he opens his letter by stating that, although a stranger to Australia, he hopes ere long to become familiar with it. He then goes on to say that it has given him great pleasure to notice that at last the colony has begun to find out that it must have the " sons of the desert to improve the breed of horses, and that several of them have been taken from India." As Mr. Ali Abdoola is a countryman of theirs, he th...

THE GREATNESS THAT NEVER DESCENDS TO READ NEWSPAPERS.—A respectable man has been de-     fined as one who keeps a gig ; but a cut far above your respectable man is the man who does not read a newspaper. Members of the two Houses of Parliament never read newspapers. They would not, indeed, touch a newspaper with a pair of tongs. No great man, no one pretending to importance, ever avowed that he read anything of which he had to complain, or upon which he had to comment, in a newspaper. It is always " brought under his notice," or his " attention was drawn to it." Never does it come naturally in his way in the course of his daily reading. The fact is always brought to his knowledge, as his articles of dress and use are brought to his hands. He is waited on with the news concerning him- self, and would no more think of learning it by the use of his own eyes than he would think of brushing his own clothes or cleaning his own boots. All great folks have got frien...

THE GROWN LANDS ALIENATION ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 29 August 1874

THE CROWN LANDS ALIENATION ACT. (From the Sydney Mail.) THE present Crown Lands Alienation Act entitles persons to select land conditionally in portions not less than 40 nor more than 320 acres ; and it also confers certain grazing rights, which, how- ever, have been found to be a source of much disappointment and confusion. At the time the Act was passed, it was thought that provision was made for the obtainment conditionally of areas sufficiently large to enable settlers to carry on agricultural operations, and to graze a certain number of sheep or cattle. But it has been found that in some districts agriculture is not so profit- able as squatting on a small scale ; and, as the grazing right has proved delusive, there is now a strong desire in certain quarters to extend the area of conditional purchase. The opinions of the witnesses examined upon this point are generally in favour of enlarged areas being open to con- ditional purchase. Mr. W. Hay, the member for the Murray, ex- pr...
