ADELONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut and Adelong Times — 5 January 1865
ADELONG. (from our own correspondent.) December 31st. — Although I have been silent the past few days, it has not been for want of something to say, but rather from the desire of rusticating during the merry Christmas time. | To send you a detailed account of our races would be superfluous, indeed the only race of any consequence was the one taken by Mazur ka, beating Forrester and Tim Bobbin. . The 'others were equally as amusing, but from' the nature of the prizes did not excite so much interest. One pleasant feature in the day's sport was that, although the attendance was much more numerous than usual, peace and good-fellowship prevailed. The only accident was that occurring to young Boyd, reported in one of your late issues, and I am glad to say he is progressing most favourably. Without wishing to accuse the men of Ade long of want of gallantry, yet I think the con duct of some during the past week is fairly open to censure. A fishing party had been formed, a boat built, the co...

The Public Works Act is in full operation, but the local authorities are in places slow ? to avail themselve^.ofr'its provisions. ^ , , At the Tc^pbint Petty Sessions, as a witness was . .about, .to .b^gwqriy in. on an assault case, the chairman asked, 'Do you^Jknow ,/ what you are doing when you take an agtli ?'

FLAX—A VALUABLE CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut and Adelong Times — 5 January 1865
FLAX- A VALUABLE CROP. The cultivation of flax has received a great impetus within the last eighteen montha in the United Kingdom. This is particularly the caae in Ireland, where the linen trade has long been established as an important and profitable branch of commerce. The cause of this revival of flax culture lies in the failure 6f the cotton supply from America, owing to the ravages of the prssent civil war in that country. And it is also due to the well-founded belief that, even when the war shall have ceased, the former supply of cotton from America cannot possibly be restored for many years to comc — if ever again — to anything like its former vast dimensions, by reason of the devastation of the plantations, the dispersion of the slaves, and the bankrupt fortunes of the planters, which are the inevitable consequences of this disastrous internecine contest. Hence, in several countries people are looking to flax-culture as a permanent profitable industry, since linen must neces...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut and Adelong Times — 5 January 1865
_THE.explode-l-. tactics of- oligarchical faction are now too' well -understood by the. people to gain revival. Tyranny over the only source of en v lightening, amusing, and instructing the people, ;is always a most unwise and a dangerous step for any government to take, and Mr. Martin and his colleagues must by this time have learnt ?to their cost that the public Press here, as in the mcther-country, will ever assert its rights .independently. It is not mere'y the representa tive of a faction, or a party, but it is the repre sentative of the people ; a representative that, while it listens to wrongs and applauds right, leads ? also -public opinion. It is their guiding star, and .woe be to the government or the statesman who attempts to extinguish it. As the recorder of events necessary to retain in ? our everyday history, its pages will always be ' scarined with interest, ; afe the most legitimate ' , defender, of our rights it will always be upheld ; as the: exponent of public opi...
