THE COMBINATION CRICKET MATCH AT MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 March 1877
THE COMBINATION CRICKET MATCH ' AT MELBOURNE. (Melbourne Argus.) For the reason, no doubt, that many disap pointments have ushered m this match, tho attendance of spectators at the commence ment of the play yesterday (9th) was more moderate than so important an event as tho first contest between the cricketers of the old country and the colonies on level terms was worthy of. When the preparations were undertaken we think we may safely say that the public of the five colonies looked for a grand display of cricket, something that would live to be talked of for the next ten or twenty years. 13ut as the day approached first one difficulty and then another arose to lessen the hopes that had been raised. Some players as they grow in fame seem to de velop numerous uncricketerlike qualities. As they mount to the top of their ambition they need to be humoured, coaxed, and petted, like girls at the age when they don't know their minds and can't be helped to a decision. The defection of Allan ...
JINDALEE. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 March 1877
JINDALEE. The partial rains which fell a fortnight since peculiarly favoured this part of the district. It is a pleasure to see the green fresh vegetation, though only in patches, observable about Jindalee, and the fine storage of water in the dams. At Mrs. Hobbs's the dam fed bv what is known bv the name of the Gap Springs contains a tolerably good supply ; and Barnes's dam is almost full to overflowing, providing a sup ply for the cattle for some considerable time to come. The rain has come at an opportune time, and more is promised. On Sunday last, the Rev. G, R. Glasson preached his farewell sermon here. Not a very large congregation assembled, doubtless owing to the threatening rain; but our neat little edifice was pretty well filled. The rev. gentleman preached ®n eloquently hor tatory discourse from a text appropriate to the occasion. He was generally respected here ; and _ always worked vigorously on behalf of his church. The Rev. G. Thompson, Mr. Glasson's successor, has ta...
THE DYING BUSHRANGER POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 March 1877
THE DYINa BIJSHEANGEE POWEE: (By ' Vagabond ' . in the Argus. J Lying in bed, sick unto death, his life daily ebbing away, one can hardly re cognise that this slight, weak, grey, mean looking man is the desperado who laid the whole colony under contribution, in the full power of his manhood possess ing the endurance and hardihood of an Arab. Power's history would make an. interesting book. The following slight sketch of his career and adventures I had from his own lips, verifying many par ticulars from the warders, some of whom have known hini for years, most of them having a great liking for the man. His courageous crimes stand out iu such con trast to the number of mean forgeries and breaches of trust now of daily occur rence, that Power is the hero of Pent ridge. And I, thinking of his hard life, and that he risked it hundreds of times against overwhelming odds, feel that he is a king of men compared to the petty forgers around him. It is true that he was a most dangerous man, on...

Holloway's Ointment and Pills.— With autumn come many diseases of the skin, which demand instant attention if the ? patient wishes to be spared much annoyance through the winter. These remedies will be found most effectual in repressing erysipelas jand inflammations generally, and in healing iop sore legs, woiuids, and ulcerations, in the ldndest manner, without exciting pain or tending to weaken the patient, which would - infallibly increase his sufferings and retard \ his cure. Holloway's Pills should bo taken ? during this course of treatment, which they : will make easier and more successful ; at tho same, time they will improve the appetite ? and materially aid digestion — a matter of the mpst material importance when lowering ' infirmities afflict the weak, delicate, or aged. ?

COUCH GRASS AND STEAM PLOUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 March 1877
COUCH GRASS AND STEAM PLOUGH-,' ING. ( Illustrated Sydney News.) The day of long fallows and plenty of couch grass are slowly departing, thanks to the untiring steamp-lough. The necessity for steam as a weed-destroyer is painfully ex hibited in the. following, which I extract from the Royal Agricultural Society's Jour nal, vol. v., p. 33. It describes Hall Farm, near Sevenoaks, Kent, then the property of Lord Amherst, 250 acres in extent, free of corn tithes. When m hand heavy losses were incured. It was then at £200 a year, and still lost money.; and afterwards, when the rent was reduced to £100 a year, the new tenant gave it up as a losing game; and no wonder, for when again taken in hand by the owner, . the loss in two years was £937, and the third year it lost £502 ! It then was placed under new and better ; management; 'The state of it .was such i that it was found necessary to summer fal low nearly the whole of the land for two years in succession ; and it is a fact, that from...

UPPER TUMBERUMBA. March 17. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 27 March 1877
UPPER TUMBERUMBA. ! March 17. Strange to write, yet true, this district, with the exception of very few slight show ers, for many months has not had any rain worth recording for miles around. There has been a serious delay in the few ^mining operations proceeding at Back Creek and this water-course, as of necessity races have had to be formed for long distances ; and of late these nave been the subject of complaint brought before the district warden of the Goldfields South?' The complaint is that miners are diverting the water held by right of others to their own workings ; but it is hoped that more amicable arrangements may be made to prevent recourse to the de cision of the warden. The different claims are producing fair wages, and a few pro spectors are at work. An intelligent miner states to me that, although gold is seen on prospect, the expense of working it would be too heavy. He is not sanguine of success in those parts of the district where he is at work ; yet, on the whole...

THE FUNERAL OF ARCHBISHOP POLLING. (From the Echo.) . On Monday there took place the funeral of the Venerable Archbishop Folding^ His death has been regretted by religionists of all denominations ; and the large attendance at the funeral of people, of all creeds and countries bore an ample testimony to the strength and 'widespread character of the respect and esteem entertained for the memory of the late Archbishop.
