THE LATE MASSACRE IN FIJL [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 3 March 1869
THE LATE MASSACRE IN FIJL The following account of the recent out rages in Fiji ha9 been sent by a correspondent there. Although it has been to some extent anticipated, it will be read with interest. It is dated Fiji, 16th December :— "A feartul tragedy has lately been enacted on the plantation of Messrs Burt and Under wood, Nadroga, Viti Levu. For some time past the heathen mountaineers had been very troublesomp, lving in wait for the coolies, and beating them whenever they could catch them j in the forest, and so severely that two of these unfortunate men died from the effects of the savage assaults committed upon them. Four more also, were poisoned ; nnd to such lengths did the Fijians go that Burt and Under wood gave the coolies arms, and told them to defend themselves when attacked. The result was a fight on one occasion, when the natives came down upon the coolies as they were cutting horse fodder. Shots were exchanged, and one Fijian fell badly woundpd, where upon his comrade...
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 3 March 1869
TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. From our latest telegraphic intelligence we gather the following:— Sydney. In the Assembly the debate on Mr Stpwart's motion that it is exppdipnt to repeal the Newspaper Postage Act, 186was brought to a close, and on a division the motion was carried by a majority of 8, the numbers being 20 to 12. The prosecution instituted by the Govern ment asrainst the proprietors of the Freeman's Journal for omitting to register their paper, has been ordered for trial for the 5th of March. Some oxperiments were made in the Domain with Dick's patent fire extinguisher, and were considered a great success. The Champion Scullers' Match was won by Hickey. The boat race on Saturday between Hickey and Lyons was a very hollow affair. Hickey went off with the lead, and was scarcely ever called upon to make an extra effort, winning so easily that many considered the race a sham. The new mission ship John Williams ar rived here, and has been an object of interest to many. The offi...
The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 3 March 1869
C|e fvikriiie |jerali ECEUCAj WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1869. It will doubtless be within the recollection of our readers that some time ago a deputation waited upon the Hon. the Commissioner of Roads and Railways urging the construction of the long talked of bridge across the Mur ray, and that Mr Jones promised that the matter should receive consideration. About four weeks ago the town clerk went down, as a deputation, for the purpose of reminding the Commissioner of his promise, and of ask ing him !to have the necessary sum placed upon the estimates. Mr Jones wished to have the matter placed before him in writing, and Mr Pascoe was not slow in acceding to his re quest, whereupon the urbane minister graci ously promised that the subject should receive " more consideration." All this, we say, will be within the memory of our readers, and many of them can also call to mind the letter which was read, from the Assistant Commis sioner (instructed by Mr Jones), at the meet ing of the local Bor...

REPEAL OF THE NEWSPAPER STATUTE ACT OF N.S. WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 6 March 1869
REPEAL OP THE NEWSPAPER STATUTE ACT OF N.S. "W ALES. Ia moving his resolution affirming the desira bility of repealing the Newspaper Act of 1864, Mr J. Stewart said he did not regard the postage charge as a.Jax, because the newspaper oould be obtained with paying the postage, and therefore | it could not be be a tax; nor did he object to the charge as exorbitant, for the obarge was very reasonable-; but be found fault wifh it aB being inconsistent with the general policy of the coun try. Here the Government bad assumed the duty of educating the public, and amongst all the educational machinery in the land nothing was more useful than the newspaper Press. On this ground it was most unwise to limit the diffusion the newspaper Press. Jiy way of showing the advantages conferred upon nations by the news paper Press, he drew a parallel between those countries in which newspapers were numerous aud those in which newspapers were hardly known; and dwelling irp&lt;>n the wide diffu...
