For instance, the land sales had been far less:in proportion to the population;, and the ex penliture on public works had been' far greater than the first. year of responsible government,- The accou'nts ifor. last' year showed a surplus of :49,500.??: -He esti mated the revenue of: the' presetit' year, at £5,440,670.. and : the :.?ependititre at £5,232"966, thus leaving' ta surplus' at the the end of the year of 7o0,700, which he': believed 'would be full...

IN MEMORY OF WALTER GOODCHILD, WHO DIED AT BRONTI, JAN. 8, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 10 February 1881

IN MEMORY OF WALTER GOODCHILD, WHO DIED AT BRONTI, JAN. 8, 1881. WE miss the gentle one   That's taken from our side ; We miss him in our daily walks, But more at eventide. We cannot call him dead, he's gone, In Paradise to bloom ; We laid his body down to rest Within the silent tomb. It was with tears we bid good-bye, And kissed his cold, cold brow ; We cannot call him dead — he lives, And reigns with Jesus now.     This world was not good enough,   We could not keep him here — He told us not to weep for him, For death he did not fear. That form once loved and dear to us Has perished like the flowers ; We know that he is blooming In a brighter land than ours. Oh, yes ! we know he's happy, Tears cannot wet the eye ; He'll never know a sorrow now, Nor ever breathe a sigh.

NOTES ON MANY THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 12 February 1881

NOTES ON MANY THINGS, By Cosato. THE battle has been fought, victors and van quished have had their say, and the 'curtain for a time has been drawn over, the scene which during the past week exhibited so many phases of human emotion, and so much that was calculated to stir up the worst feel ings that agitate the human breast. I do not intend to say much about it. I am immensely satisfied with the result of the contest; but it has never been a principle of my life to chuckle over defeated men, and even before the event came off it was more the principle they acted on than the men that I protested against. I was present at the declaration of the poll, but didn't help afterwards to drag Alderman George round in the buggy;.' and, in fact, I think that nonsense, and the pre sence of the band, showed very bad taste. It appears the newly-fledged alderman was not to blame; but the demonstration on the part of his followers and admirers will scarcely" help to tone down any animosity that :ma...

GOULBURN ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 12 February 1881

GOULBBUiR ITEMS, OUR attention has been directed to the state of Clinton-street, near Mandelson's Hotel, where we find that a new footpath has been recently laid at such a level that it seems to be several inches higher than the crown of the road; the channel is also higher than the water-tables of the street, and tor the past week there has been a pool of several yards in length there almost sufficient to float a boat, and sooner or later, as the wet weather approaches, the water will rise and so over flow the road into Mr. Conolly's property, which will give that gentleman just grounds for an action against the Borough Council. It will cost a very large amount of money to raise the water-tables, and also to bring the street to the level of the channel recently made alongside the footpath referred to. We are surprised that the Improvement Com inittee of the Council allowed such work as that complained of to be constructed, for aniy person with any judgment will agree with us that t...
