A RUSTIC ROMANCE. Breach of Promise Action. In the month of March last a spinster named Amelia Fahey gained a verdict against Henry Ovens, farmer and grazier, of the Burrowa district, for breach of promise of marriage, a sympa- thotic jury awarding her £100. &nbsp; Mr. Garland appeared before the Full Court on Tuesday afternoon on behalf of the defendant, and moved to make absolute a rule to set aside the verdict, and grant a new trial, or to enter a verdict for the defendant "The question," said counsel, "is whether the admitted evidence of the plaintiff did not conclusively make out a plea of exoneration and discharge." There were, added counsel, a number of pleas when the action was tried, but the only one relevant to the present motion was that of exoneration and discharge. The facts were that the defendant was a man aged about 27, while the fair plaintiff confessed to 36 years. They became engaged in 1891, and the last letter defendant wrote to the plaintiff was in Febr...
GREENWICH PARK. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 2 August 1901
GREENWICH PARK. (From Our Correspondent.) The new R. C. Church at New Country Flats is agitating the public mind about here somewhat, more particularly the &nbsp; proposal to erect a wooden structure, since in the opinion of those in authority sufficient money is not avail able for a stone building. This course does not meet with the approval of many who contributed towards the church fund, and otherwise labored zealously to obtain the necessary capital, as it was their desire to see erected a substantial building of stone, which would defy the havoc wrought by white ants which devastate and unnerve wooden structures in tim- bered country adapted to their habita- tion. The site proposed denotes the presence of the ants, their hillocks dis- closing that fact. Under these cir- cumstances a wooden structure would be the forerunner of assured destruction for that reason. The matter calls for attention. Some time since Mr. A. E. Grubb originated a guessing competition in connecti...

The question of women occupying a seat in Parlioment would not at present be dealt with.

Cable News. LONDON, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 5 August 1901
Cable News. London*. Friday. A Boer commando lias entered Portu guese territory in search of provisions, and Portuguese troops have demanded its surrender. The Chancellor of the Exchequer says that the sums voted for the war in South Africa will suffice to the middle of February, and longer, if things go well. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach added that there was reason to anticipate a reduction in war expenditure, a remark which is interpreted to mean the early recall of 40,000 troops. For the four months, April to July, the war coat ^25,750,000, and in July the weekly expenditure was^i,350,00.

MR KRUGER AT CHURCH. the ex-President Spends his Sabbath at Hilversuni. A little before Church-time every Sunday morning a small group of per sons gather near the door of " Casa Cara," the villa at Hilversum, where Kruger is staying. The London " Daily Express" says that curiosity to get a view of Oom Paul is still strong in those who have not yet seen him, and many cyclists go for a spin down to Hilversum to get a peep at the old man. Mr. Kruger rides to church in a closed carriage, drawn by two light chestnut color horses, with coachman and footman 011 the box dressed in the dark green livery of the Transvaal official days. The arms of the Trans vaal are emblazoned on the panels of the carriage doors, and below them stands the ihscription " Eendracht maakt macht," or," Union is strength." The horses' head-gear carries the Transvaal national colors in the form of a small rosette, side by side with the Dutch colors—a sop to the Nether landers. Presently Oom Paul lumbers out of the v...
