STOCK REPORTS, &c. ECHUCA AND MOAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 10 February 1869
STOCK REPORTS, &c. ECHUCA AND MO AM A. There can be no doubt that the late rains hare done much good, for although they were not of a general character, they fell heavily in some spots, and they must have filled many waterholea and day-pans. At Eciiuca, on Monday afternoon, very heavy rain fell for a short interval, approaching from the Xorth-West, and sweep ing over the town in a similar direction. If there be suffic ent old grass to cover the young spring it is likely that the localities favourtJ by the rain vill be enabled to supply tolerable feed, and thus defy the drought until the approach of winter. Our Kerant; correspondent informs us that there is nothing stirring in the way of stock, on the Lower Loddon, or in the district of Swan Hill. The plains, he says, are quite bare, and the water low, items of information which quite account for the quietude in pastoral matters in this district.

Outrage on a ¥oung Girl—The Dungog correspondent of the Maitland Mer cury reports that at the Police Court in that district, on the 14th ultimo, a man named John Yardy was charged with rape.

PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 February 1869
PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL. The efficacy of the solution ot sulphite or lime as a meat preserver has been placed be yond question by the experiments that have from time to time been made, and there is little doubt that this valuable agent will before long' be extensively used. Messrs P. fckinner and Co., who are now manufacturing the sulphite for the market, have been suc cessful in nearly all the experiments they have tried, while some that are yet in progress are also turning out very satisfactorily. A leg of mutton, which has been washed once a day in a solution, consisting of one part of sul phite of lime and six parts of water, has kept perfectly fresh and sweet since the IStb Jan uary, and another, joint which was dipped once in at solution of double the strength, and then hung inside a barrel containing, some of the mixture, was found on examination on Wednesday to be almost in the same condi tion as when the meat left the butcher's shop. Other experiments have been tried by M...

TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 February 1869
TO_ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. | We were as much pained as surprised when we learnt that a well known' resident of Echuca, who had not to our knowledge ever been looked upon as a "needy novice," "a blunderer," or " oca wholly destitute of re spectability or professional skill," should have taken to himself remarks made by us in a : recent article protesting against the abolition of certain high offices ia this town, and in- &lt; tended for a class of persons widely different from that to which he belongs. We have t also to express our utter amazement that the gentlemen to whom we refer should have permitted himself to imagine that because he confidentially informed us of a matter which was on the very point of being made public— ' and which was made public before we touched upon it—wb were thus precluded from re- 1 porting, or commenting upon, the same. To 1 give a journalist early intelligence is one 1 thing, but it is quite another to close his mouth for all succeeding time. ...

THE LATE RAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 February 1869
THE LATE RAINS. [FROM THE WAGGA WAGGA EXPHESS.J i?roca advices received, we regret to learn that general benefit has not been the result of the great fall of rain which deluged Wagga Wagga and its immediate vicinity. The course of the rainfall appears to have been very eccentric. A correspondent informs us that the run of water down the falls of Eunonyahreenyah run on the Junee road, on both sides of the range, was very great, and that there is a good spring in the grass, which consists principally of that description known as summer grass. Further north the dams on the Junee run were filled, as also were the large tank and waterholes at Wr3 Dacey's Junee, whilst the dam on the North Junee run, only three miles distant on the same watercourse, did not receive more than a trifling addition of water. The Houlaghan's Creek station, soma seven miles further on, obtained no water; and the watercourse from there is quite dry, whilst there was a perfect flood in the Combanning Creek, compl...
