HARRISON, JONES, & DEVLIN'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 12 August 1876
Harrison, Jones, & Devlin's Report. Wool : The very unsatisfactory state of the London market has caused a great depression here. The results of the sales were — fleece, 13id to 14id ; greasy 5id to Sid ; scoured skin wools, 13Jd to 17d. Since the sales we have been placed in possession of English telegrams up to 17th July, which, referring to the woolsales report no improvement upon last, intelligence, 1 the fall being from 15 to 20 per cent upon the same sales of last year, and we fear there are no immediate prospects of improvement. Most of the latter shipments will, we expect, leave heavy losses. Our sales were important. . Sheepskins : Considering the unfavourable aspect of the wool market, sheepskins sold remarkable well this week, the competition being good, and prices but little altered from those recently ruling. The results of the sales show thus : — Best skins, 5d. to 6d. ; medium, 3id to 4Jd ; pelts and short wool, 2d. to 3d. We cleared a pretty full catalogue at...
Commercial. SYDNEY. MORT AND CO.'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 12 August 1876
Commercial. SYDNEY. Mort and Co.'s Report. 'Wool : The most unsatisfactory news that has reached these colonies for a very long poriod regarding the European markets for our chief Btaple is that furnished by telegrams published here on the 14th and 19th of last month. Our last circular expressed an apprenonsion tnat tne London aalc3, commencing on tho 20th Juno would show an unfavourable result ; but tho information that has come through exhibits a far more gloomy state of affairs than could have been anticipated. Tho latest date is to 0th June, by mail via Suez, with telegraphic advices (via Galle) to tho 28th June. The latter quote a fall on the already low rates of April of 20 per cent, on medium and inferior wools, and 10 to 15 per cent, on the better classes. One of the published messages names the decline at 2id to 3d per lb. for washed and scoured, and an average of 2d per lb. on greasy, adding an intimation that prices will probably remain un altered until the close of the s...

OUR STREETS. To the Editor of the Grenfell Record. Sir, — I was very glad to notice that you drew attention, in your journal of tho 29th July, to the disgraceful condition of Forbes-street, from M'Connell's cornor up to tho Courthouso, and I can fully bear you out as to tho probability of there being an accident in it some day or tho other. I hear that a short timo back the Cowra coachman was all but precipitated from the box of his coach through the wheels of the vehicle going unexpectedly at night into ono of tho scarcoly-to-bo-avoided ruts. Thoro is no doubt, however, that tho repairing of it should be tho task of tho Government, considering that it is tho leading thnroughfaro to all tho public offices; but if they aro requested to do so and doclino, then I am confident that our towspeoplo will respond as heartily as they did for those of George-street, and should it bo found necessary thcro is always a mite rnadv from A HOUSEHOLDER.

SHOCKING TRAGEDY NEAR YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 12 August 1876
SHOCKING TRAGEDY NEAR YOUNG. In our last issue wo published a short para graph alluding to a shocking double tragedy (in which a man named D'Ottway, residing at Tipporary Gully, about three miles from Young, had shot his housekeeper, a Mrs. Andrews, and then committed suicide by poison), which had occurred on tho previous Tuesday night. In addition to the meagre particulars to hand then, we glean the following further information from tlie Burranqonq Chronicle of Saturday last, from which wo also extract the appended report of the proceedings at tho inquests. It would appear that D'Ottway's wife died about twelve months ago, leaving four children, and from that date the man appears to havo been an altered one. He afterwards engaged the mur dered woman, who gave her name as Mrs. An drews and stated that sho was a widow with one child, as housekeeper, he representing himself to be much better off than ho actually was. Letters were produced previous to the inquest which showed that her...

EARL DERBY ON THE EASTERN QUESTION. London, July 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 12 August 1876
EARL DERBY ON THE EASTERN QUESTION. London, July 15. An influential deputation of 40 members of Parliament, representing 571 gentlemen, waited upon Earl Derby at his official resi dence fo't the purpose of urging the neutra lity of England in case of a general war. Earl Derby, in replying, said he concurred with their object. The Government refused to nnnnnt the Berlin memorandum because n compromise was unfeasible, and was unaccep table to .tho Porte and the insurgents. The fleet now in Besika Bay would not take the initiative, but was there because England and all countries wish to prevent a massacre of their subjects. A general war was most improbable. France would certainly not go to war, and Germany and her people had no direct interest in a war, and England would not provoke hostilities. Austria was in a position, but her own self-interest would dictate peace. There was a powerful parly in Russia which desired that the Sclavonic Empire should bo under Russian guidance and infl...

MODERN PARAGRAPHING IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser — 19 August 1876
MODERN PARAGRAPHING IN AMERICA. ' TnAT was a bitter joke of the man in New ? Jersey who put a quantity of jalap : in some beer his friend was about to drink.' The funeral was very generally attended.' — - Exchange. We don't know who originated thejabove manner of stating a fatal occurrence, but it seems a very delicate way of putting it, and rmlds milnh hptt.or fhnn whan nnn nrmo ? 'He died amid the most horrible and excruci ating agonies.' We get the whole story suggestively, and without our 'sensibilities being shocked. This new style of paragraph ing affords a fine field for the exercise of ingenuity in conveying the intelligence that a man died. As, for instance, the following: — ' A man in New Hampshire, the other day, ate fifteen dozen raw oysters for a wager. The silver trimmings on his coffin cost twelve dollars thirty-five cents.' A young man in Louisville examined a keg of damaged gunpowder with a red-hot poker, to see if it was good. It is believed by his friends that he ...
