The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, FEB. 24, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 February 1869
lifcrmc EOKUCA, WEDNESDAY, FES. 24, 1869. In another column we give the bill recently introduced by Mr Higinbotham to amend the law with respect to the property 'and the earnings of married women. We confess that wa are disappointed in'it, and we have no doubt it will require to be very materially altered before it can be bound up with the statutes of Victoria. It .certainly contains all we could desire, but it unfortunately con tains a great deal more, and-in the supera bundance we find many things of which we most heartily disapprove. Until we had afforded us an opportunity of reading the draft, we were of opinion that the measure wns intended to meet only those cases in which it would be wanted, but we now see that besides remedying certain evils which are happily of rare occurrence, it would be eminently calcu lated to initiate others which we never knew before. We wanted a measure by which the property, and earnings of the honest, the loving, and the industrious wife should be ...
IMPORTANT TO SQUATTERS TRAVELLING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 February 1869
' IMPORTANT TO SQUATTERS : ' .TRAVELLING SHEEP. [from the pastoral times.] ' A" case . or. considerable importance was; tried at our Police Court some fortnight since; drovers of stock would do well to ponder over it.. Some sheep belonging to defendant, a squatter residing at Nap Nap on the Murrumbidgee, were passing through Mr M'Bean's run known as Woorooma, and some of the latter gentleman's sheep got "boxed" with Mr M'Farland's flock, which were travelling. The proper notice had been given by defendant to plaintiff, and a servant of the latter, in discovering some of his mapler's sheep among those belonging to de fendant, requested the latter's overseer to put the travelling flock in a stockyard which he was then passing and draft the sheep, but defendant's overseer declined to do so. When defendant and his sheep bad passed the boundary of Woorooma, the sheep were rounded up and some few belonging to Mr M'Bean were caught and pitched over the fence into Woorooma run, to which pla...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 February 1869
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. From our latest telegraphicintelligence we gather the following:— Sydney. In the Assembly, the House again counted out on Mr Steward's motion for tbe report of the Newspaper Postage Act of 1864. A correspondent writing from Fiji states that news has been received from the Island of Tanna, one of the new Hebrides, that the inland natives are in the habit of coming down to the coast in a hostile manner, and annoying the settlers there. ' They have mur dered many of the native Tanna labourers, wounded several Europeans whilst defending themselves, and killed one European child. They carried off with them, a quantity of stock. On Monday the shop occupied by Mr Richard Thame, grocer, in George-Btreet, suddenly fell in, burying five people in the ruins' As quickly as possible they were extricated one by one, being literally dragged from under, the. ruins. Fortunately all were got out alive, but two of. them, Mr Thame and Dr Anderson, were very much injured. The o...

THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 February 1869
; TH.E DUKE OF'EDiNBURGH IN., VICTORIA. . His Royal Highness the Duke of Edin burgh landed at Sandridge on Monday even ing, at about ten minutes past six o'clock. The Galatea anchored near_where she.for merly stopped shortly Rafter half-past &lt; four o'clock, at whioh time there could not have been much less than 6000 persons on the railway pier and the shora at Sandridge. .Some hitch appeared with reference to the landing of the Duke which is not yet ex plained away, bat it is not at all improbable that one principal, cause of the' matter arose from over anxiety to make the landing a private.one. A good number of persons had left Sandridge before H.R.H. landed, but those who were left gave him a very hearty greeting, as did also those of the suburbs 'through 'which be pjissed on: his: way ;to Toornk.

A REMARKABLY CLEVER CAPTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 February 1869
A REMARKABLY CLEVER CAPTURE. It is said that a Cornish jury recently re turned the remarkable verdict "Guilty, sub ject to a doubt as to whether he is the man." Now, making due allowance for the doubt that must ever crop up with reference to all unconvicted prisoners, we may say that a really clever capture was effected by mounted constable Couch on last Saturday, and if it turn out that he arrested the right man we ; sincerely hope that the proper authorities may see fit to give him thai reward which he will have so richly deserved. It appears that at Mount Egerton, near Ballaiat, one David , Thompson stabbed one Richard Groves on 125th January 1867. Notwithstanding the vigorous attempts that were made to arrest ■ him, the accused succeeded in evading the police, and, as if to throw them completely [ off the scent, became a civil servant some , eighteen months ago, long before that horrid l word retrenchment became so familiar in i Victoria. In fact—barring all mistakes as to ident...

ST. MARY'S SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 February 1869
ST. MARY'S SCHOOL. After divine service had been celebrated at St Mary's Roman Catholic • Church on last Sunday, the trustees, assisted by the Rev Mr Kavanagh, proceeded to appoint a mis tress in room of Miss Kavanagh, who recently left St Mary's School on so very short a notice. After having carefully in spected the testimonials sent1 in by the various candidates, they finally selected Mrs Heffer nan, a lady who produced first-class certifi cates from the Irish and Victorian Boards of Education. Mrs Htjffe.rnan had lately been teaching at Heidelberg, where sbe is said to have given the most unqualified satisfactirn. We think we can safety congratulate the trustees on the choice they have made, and we have no doubt that it will be generally approved. Indeed we may say that the good effects of the appointment have already been evidenced by the fact that on last Monday the attendance at the school was far greater than it has been for a considerable length of time past. However, there ...

PASTORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 27 February 1869
PASTORAL. The Wagga Wagga Express says:—"The I weather, during the past week, has been fine and clear, and for a time all hope of further rain appears to have passed away, but though ' the wet that we have had has not been nearly enough in quantity to satisfy the wants of our hitherto nparly dried out graziers, the change thi-t it has produced in the appear ance of the country has been truly magical. Dams may not always have been filled, nor yet in some instances have even been per ceptibly replenished, and some runs may not have been more than touched by the rains, but most of the country in this neighbour hood has been more or less drenched, and the grass is, in conseqi'encp, rapidly springing up. The feed is already, in many places, 3 or 4 inches in length, and as the sun, though warm, has not yet been scorching, its growth has received no check, and with a little more rain all fears of scarcity on this score would vanish. From all parts of the country our accounts of the season ...
