SWAN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 23 November 1877

SWAN HILL. (From our own Correspondent.) We have had a great week here on Swan Hill. More than a dozen of steamers have passed up and down the river, with their splen   did cargos of wool and general merchandise. On the first of the week the river stood at 8ft     above summer level, but it has now risen at this     date 6 inches. The river traffic presented a very lively apperance, indeed, on Thursday   last. Mr Dean, otherwise the " Captain," had his punt decorated with flags of all colors. At eight o'clock in the morning might be   seen vehicles o fall descriptions moving across to New Sauth Wales, with their living freights   of well-dressed and happy looking children, also many older children, that made up the ptoccsriol, viz, parents and guardians. There   happy looking people were going to have a grand holiday or picnic, at the special invita tion of S H Oflice...

PIC-NIC TO CHILDREN OF SWAN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 23 November 1877

PIC-NIC TO CHILDREN OF SWAN HILL.   Thursday, the 15th instant, was a gala day with the young people of Swan Hill. Through the kindness of Mr Officer, of Murray Downs, they were invited to spend the day on the estate. For more than a week, the absorbing question among the children had been the picnic, and the teachers at the State school must have found it a difficult task to rivet the attention of their pupils upon their lessons. The morning was bright and cool, and a start was made about eight o clock for the punt, but for nearly an hour before the time, many of the anxious little ones has been waiting and longing for the pleasures of the day to commence. The usually sombre looking punt was made gay for the occasion with flags, and Mr Wm Wood, the proprietor, kindly con- veyed the guests across the river free of charge. Several well horsed vehicles   were provided by Mr Officer for transit of the juveniles, prominent amongst them being a light and com- mo...

HORRIBLE MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 23 November 1877

HORRIBLE MURDER. A horrible murder was on Saturday last brought to light at North-west Bay. It appears that a man named Lawrence Felon who was a small farmer in the neighbour- hood mentioned, left his house on the 18th of October last, and that notwithstading the most minute search, no trace could be found of his whereabouts. Suspicion, how- ever, pointed to a neighbour named Francis Sheran, of whom Felon had been known to entertain some fears; and during the last few days the police authorities caused sharp look- out be kept upon Sheran's movements and he was on Saturday seen filling a hole near to his residence. This was subse- quently inspected by the police, when it was found to contain the body of the missing man, in a very mutilated condition, and showing plainly that Felon had been cruelly murdered by some one. After this discovery had been made, the police proceeded to Sheran's house, intending to arrest him ; but they found that he had disappeared, and they had to remain sa...

NARROW `ESCAPE FROM\ DROWN 1\G. A narrow escape from drowning,occurred at the establishment of :MeEsrs .Mollitt and Schntze,l'all 3Mall,on Saturdaylast. From what we can learn of the ocuroence, it ap pears that one of the;assistants while in che act of getting outa piece of'material, which was being shrunk by their Patent Shrinking Apparatus, lost his equilibrium and fell in head-foremost. Fortunately Mr Schutze was near at hand, and quickly pulled him out, and lost no time in applying the usual remedies in case of drowning, -with satis factory sucoess,'the young fellowrbeing isolv beyond all danger, seeming none the worse for his immersion and rubbing. From itt quiries made since, we understaud -that according to this patent process of shrinking, the hot, water was turned off and the cold turnel :on, to shrink the material effec tually.

The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, NOVEMBER 30, 1877. NATIVE INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 30 November 1877

AND SWAN- HILL GAZETTE. S P UBLeSHD WEEKLY. KERANG, NOVEMBER 30, 178 7" NATIVE INDUSTRY. ..~ A consilerable amount of time has' been wasted in this colony in arguing the advisability, or otherwise of protect ing native industries. Although the word "native" is used generally, a great many take exception to it, and say, industries are not native, that are imported from other countries. Iron. work, for instance, they say, can in no way be termed native, because every thing used in its manufacture has to be imported. Whether or not ironwork and others of that class, may strictly come under the head of native indus tries, is not our intention.at present to say. But there are many industries yielding a large amouut of wealth, upon which all are agreed as to their being native, for instance wheat, wool, wine, gold,&c.Thereare othernative industries which the soil and climate of Victoria are capable of sustaining, and which are admirably suited to the noithern parts of it.
