THE PREMIER'S ADDRESS TO HIS CONSTITUENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 29 August 1874
THE PREMIER'S ADDRESS TO HIS CONSTITUENTS. (Abridged from the S. M. Herald.) THE HON. HENRY PARKES said :— It is twenty years ago on the 2nd of May Iast since I was first elected for the city of Sydney, and there are few men—indeed I think there is no man in the country besides myself who represents a con- stituency which elected him twenty years ago. &nbsp; During the whole of that time your conduct to me as your member has been worthy of the great constituency which East Sydney is. It is one of the very few constituencies which never hampers its members' judgment or its members' inde- pendence. During that long period I have never been besieged by deputations asking me to do unreasonable things. I have never received from &nbsp; my constituents any application except such as is strictly worthy of the character of a free citizen. And whatever may be said of the metropolitan constituencies, they pre-eminently keep alive the public spirit and the public independence o...
EXAMPLE FARMING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 29 August 1874
EXAMPLE FARMING IN VICTORIA. The following sketch is from the Leader :— Mr. Dougall's farm is the largest in the district, comprising the pre-emptive sections of the blacks' station, and 298 acres iu addition, or 938 acres in all. Of this, 400 acres are of the old formation, used as natural forest grazing land, and 538 are of the volcanic soil, which has all been broken up for cultivation, the most of it over twenty years ago. Seven hundred and eighty-four acres of the property was purchased seven years ago for £4810, the remainder having been added since at a similar rate ; and the proprietor is not unwilling that it should be stated that the purchase-money has been earned by farming in Victoria. Mr. Dougall and his brother, while in partnership at Ascot, farmed extensively in the early times, and are among the earliest importers into the colony of first-class draught stud stock and breeders therefrom. This branch of farming they found very remunerative for a period, but eventually...
BREEDERS' FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 29 August 1874
BREEDERS' FACTS. The following are a few of the most recent notes respecting breeds of sheep in England :— THE LINCOLN BREED.— One of the most popular and profitable breeds of sheep in England at the present day is the improved Lincoln. The natural habitation of the Lincoln is the fens and marshes and the deep alluvial loams eouth of the Humber, the rich soils of the new red sandstone formation, and the fertile valley of the Tees and Trent. The breed is rapidly extending beyond its native dis- trict on all the best grazing land of Leicester and the Midland counties. The rams of this breed are in great demand for exportation to the colonies. This season many shearling rams have been sold for £100 and upwards. On rich soils and a mild climate they are unsurpassed. The breed is much improved within the last twenty years. They are now more compact and of much better quality than formerly. With good keep they attain to early maturity, the shearling cutting from 18 to 14 lbs. of wool each...
THE PALMER RIVER DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 5 September 1874
THE PALMER RIVER DIGGINGS. From the Cooktown Herald and Courier to 15th August we take the following intelligence : — A correspondent of the Herald writes as fol lows, and his warnings deserve general and serious attention :— ' Allow me to draw the attention of every man in the south to the present state of affairs on the Palmer River. What is to^ be considered is this : rations are at famine price&lp on the Palmer — a sure sign that the supply is notr~ equal to the demand. If, as we anticipate, another rush takes place from the south, it will take half the horses in Queensland and a few hundred teams to throw enough rations to lost over the wet season. We had sufficient expe rience last season to know the difficulty of sup plying from 500 to 1000 men. This season there will he, even if no fresh arrivals come, nearly 5000 men on the Palmer; and when the rain comes we must remember that a large extent of country will be worked that is only passed over now ; therefore most of ...

ADMINISTRATION OF THE LAND LAW. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 5 September 1874
ADMINISTRATION OF THE LAND LAW. No. II. (From the Sydney Mail.) Mr. William Hay says he is of opinion that the condition of residence ought not to be abolished, whatever policy may be adopted in regard to improvements. He added, "If residence were abolished in my part of the country, which may be said to be a suburb of Melbourne, the country wonld be taken up in tbe names of men, women, and children, not with a view to reside upon the land or to bring it under cultivation, but to make a profit by selling it to the pastoral tenant, or to any one who would buy them out." He does not think that effective improvement (which is recommended by some as a substitute for resi- dence) would be " more beneficial than vague residence," because, in his opinion, the aim of the Land Act is to settle population upon the land, to increase the number of taxpayers, and thus to add to the revenue. Mr. Fitzpatrick gives his evidence upon this point with much more decision. He believes that " what is cal...
THE BOOK OF JEHOIAKIM. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 5 September 1874
THE BOOK OF JEHOIAKIM. (From the Melbourne Evening Herald.) 1. Now, in the days when Nebuchadnezzar was King over Babylon, there came a certain man out of the wilderness ; and his name was Jehoiakim. 2. And Jehoiakim went into the plains of Moirah, which lie over against the country of the Babylonians : he and his sons and his daughters, and his flocks and his herds, even unto the goats which browse in the wilderness. 3. And Jehoiakim saw that the land it was good : And he planted his tents, and called the place Selekshon, which meaneth an abiding-place. 4. But Nebuchadnezzar waxed wroth when he heard these things. 5. And the King sent out horsemen and foot- men, a mighty army ; and they brake the tents of Jehoiakim, and seized his flocks and herds, and smote his servants hip and thigh. 6. And there came one crying with a loud voice to the people of the land, saying that Nebuchad- nezzar had done this thing ; and the people were astonished. 7. Then went Nebuchadnezzar into the land ...

By an advertisement which appears in the Burrangong papers, we notice that the stock- owners of this and the adjoining districts will shortly be called upon to express their opinion on the merits of Mr. Dangar'e " Stock Sale Yards Bill," which we published in our issue of the 22nd ultimo. We accept it as an undoubted fact that our metropolis, with its large population, its great wealth, its vast resources, and its ex- pensive municipal corporations, is not only without any market in which the fat stock necessary for the ordinary food of its inhabi- tants can be displayed and kept without unnecessary injury and loss, bnt is unable to provide one. While Melbourne, many years ago, erected markets in which all that ingenuity could contrive has been directed to provide arrangements which should secure the cattle awaiting sale from damage, we are told that the provision for this purpose in Sydney is infamous ; that the unfortunate animals imprisoned there exist in such misery that more th...

THE ANNUAL REGISTRATION OF DOGS must be renewed during the present month. We under- stand that the police intend to take proceedings against all who neglect to comply with the pro- visions of the Dog Act. DISTRICT COURTS.—By a notice in the Govern- &nbsp; &nbsp; ment Gazelle we observe that his Honor, Judge Francis, has appointed Thursday, the 5th of November next, as the day for holding the District Court at GrenfeJl ; and Wednesday, 11th November, for Young, instead of the days pre- viously named. TRAVELLING SHEEP.—A lot of 528 excellent &nbsp; &nbsp; merino combing rams passed through the town on Sunday last, en route for Mossgiel, on the Lower Lachlan. The rams have been selected from the flocks of more than one eminent Vic- torian breeder, and from the great length and fineness of their staple seem well calculated to improve Riverine flocks. Having endured all the hardships of the protracted quarantine now required from imported sheep, and encoun...

Lillas.— Peter Lillas who, on August 19th, hod been remanded Aon bail for a fortnight on a charge of uttering a valueless cheque was called, but failed to make an appearance. Sereeant Hitch at once applied for the estreat ing of the recognisance and a warrant for his apprehension. *? [Late on Wednesday evening a telegram from Yass was received by Mr. Donovan (defendant's solicitor), explaining that his horse had knocked up between that town and Goulburn, and thus prevented his appearance.] Lillas surrendered himself to the police yesterday.

SMALL DEBTS COURT. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2. (Before Messrs. G. Eason and W. J. E. Wotton.) Goods Bought and Sold. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 5 September 1874
SMALL DEBTS COURT. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2. (Before Messrs. G. Eason and W. J. E. Wotton.) Goods Bought and Sold. A. E. Middleton v. J. S. Poignant. Mr. Donovan for defendant. Plaintiff sued to recover the sum of £7 12s. 1d. for goods bought and sold. From the evidence of plaintiff it appeared that the defendant had bought a lot of old iron, amounting to 8 cwt., at an auction sale held by the plaintiff in March last, and that the defendant had since refused to take delivery of the iron and had refused to pay for it. For the defence defendant and one witness were called, who deposed that only about 4 cwt. of iron had been bought by defendant, and that certain articles, namely hinges, were amongst the iron sold. Defendant now alleged that when he went to take delivery of the iron he found these hinges were not there, and on that account he refused to accept the goods, as he had bought the lot principally for the sake of the hinges. On the other hand plaintiff denied that the hinges wer...

Mr. Donovan for defendant. The complainant's case was, that defendant had erected a hut and other improvements on Crown lands, forming part of Milora Run, which had been reserved tor water supply. Complain- ant's case was attempted to be established by the evidence of Mr. Tozer as to the situation of the reserve and of defendant's hut, which was shown to be within it ; but as defendant proved that he had selected the land, and complainant was unable to show that the selection had been can- celled, the Court dismissed the complaint, allow- ing the defendant professional costs and the expenses of two witnesses.
