To the Editor of the Evening Penny Post. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 1 February 1881
S.T'o the lditor of the Evening Pennly Post. Smi.I sim given.to understand that it' is in con templatiozin by the powers thrit be, that there is to be builtiu connectionwith the Goulburn Hospital a contagious fever ward; which idea if carried out will entail several medical calls on private citizens, with a probable undertaker in attendance. Seeing .that the hospital issituated in about the lowest part of the densest population, it therefore, in my opinion, behoves the citizens of this oity to rise up as one and objecteto the above unsanitary idea. Foremost among objectors should be our city fathers, for in bhem is vested to a certain extent the health of the citizens; and as there is plenty of ground with elevoted position in and around the city, away from any railway disturbing influences, I truset that the citizensawill generally object to a fever ward being built·in 'our midst. CITIZEN,
"A MONTH FOR AN APPLE VALUE NIL." To the Editor of the Evening Penny Post. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 1 February 1881
' A MONTH FOR ABN APPLE VALUE NIL," To the Edilor of the Evening Penny Post. Sicn--A young man named Lenehan was briought before the Courton Friday for stealing fruit firom the orchard of the Deanery, which I suppose is a much greater offence than stealing fruit.from any other place, and was sentenced to gaol for 'one montk ; one of the Solons on the Bench wishing to make it she. Now, there can be no doubt the Ocrimo was a most atrocious one, committed in day liglit, without any attempt at concealment, the man giviog his correct name; and giving as an ex case that as one of the men at the establishment where he worked was allowed to pick up the apples he thought he could. This young fellow is a' Good Templar-very delicate, suffering from heart-dis. ease, with an-unblemished reputation, and was not oven urged to offd?, a defence. 1 wonder if the J.P.'s on'the Benchever touched the fruit in other - people's firdens wven they were youngsters.; This case requires some explanation when w...

THE NOMINATION OF ALDERMEN FOR THE GOULBURN MUNICIPALITY. THE nomination of candidates to serve as aldermen for the centre, north, and south wards of the city took place at noon on Tues day last at the Council Chambers, which was filled with ratepayers, about 120 of which were present, amongst whom were most of the aldermen and a large number of the leading citizens. The meeting was most en thusiastic throughout, and the greatest good humour prevailed. At I2 o'clock the Mayor, as retaruing-offi cer, opened the proceedings by stating that the hour had arrived that was appointed for nominating candidates for the office of alder men. He had received several nominations, and as each of the candidates would doubtless have something to say, he begged the meeting to give a fair and impartial hearing to all. (HIear,,hear.) He would now read over the nomination-papers as he had received them. The first was for the centre ward; the gen tlemen nominated were Mr. George Mc Con nell and Mr. W. M...

TREVELYAN! CHAPTER XXV, [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 3 February 1881
TREVELYAN! CHAPTER XXV, The discovery of the continued existence of Geoffrey Trevelyan, almost paralyzed Lord Adlowe. He beheld all his hopes crumbling in the dust. His schemes in regard to. the Lady Beatrice Hampton were now all futile. His expectations of succession to the Trevel yan estates had been rudely dashed to the ground. He realized, with an awful bitterness, what he was-poor, and in debt, his poverty made conspicuous by the mockery of a barren title. A weaker villain- would have despaired at this discovery, but Lord Adlowe was stung to a sullen and desperate fury. ' Love, fortune-all--swept from me at one blow !' he muttered, as he.strode to and fro in his own room, his valet having departed to the servants hall. 'My hopes 6f a-bliril liant marriage dashed ! The prize I have schemed and waited for all my life, swept from my hands ! Oh, a million curses don Beatrice Hampton and Geoffrey Trevelyan ! he hissed through his clenched teeth, and he shook his hand fiercely, "I co...

QUEANBEYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 3 February 1881
QUEANBEYAN. (From a Corresponlent. ). THE weather is still very warm and unplea sant : we had a little rain on Thursday night, but only enough to lay the dust. A few days' rain is badly wanted; stock about the town are in very poor condition. 'Thursday last settled the election for this district. Mr. Thomas Rutledge, of Molonglo, was placed at the head of the poll by a ma jority of 84 votes; Hodgkinson next. Mr. John Gale, who only polled 87, has to forfeit his £40?; but had he been able to get about, and his supporters (oi promised supporters) acted as they ought to have done, he would most likely have been second, if not first, on the list. Harvesting is over in this district, and threshing is now in full swing. The returns are very good-in most cases the yield being from 15 to 20 bushels to the acre. On Monday night last some gentlemen gave- a panoralnic entertaininent -in the Public School, but it was very poorly at tended. The posts for the streets are now ready on the ground, ...

Childers, Secretary of State for War, in reply to a question as to when military reinforcements were expected to arrive on the scene of hostilities at South Africa, said that there was every reason to hope that the troops sent from England and India would arrive at Port Durban, Natal, on the 18th February.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 3 February 1881
THE season is close at hand when the various agricultural districts of the colony, either by combination or separately, will hold their Autumn Exhibition of productions from the Farm, the Garden, and in some instances the Station; and to render the same of interest, there are generally miscellaneous sections in which prizes are offered for various exhibits outside the ordinary productions of the farm and garden. These are doubtless created in order to show the public that their handiwork is appreciated; and it sometimes happens that the centre of attraction is in these sec tions, which causes the public -to go away satisfied. But the question to consider first is-Do these Agricultural Shows really an swer the purpose for which they are held? If they do, then we say they cannot be held too often; but it very often happeins that from some cause or other there is great dis satisfaction expressed at the manner in which awards are made, caused chiefly on account of the unsuccessful compe...
