ACCIDENT ON THE BRIGHTON RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 January 1869
ACCIDENT ON THE BRIGHTON RAILWAY. About one o'clock On Saturday a'collision's happily unattended with fatal or very serious consequences, occurred on the Melbourne and Hobson's Bay Railway, a short distance from the station at Flinders-street. Considerable . excitement naturally prevailed in the vicinity of the place upon a report of the accident, much exaggerated, having spread through the city. Numbers of people came to the station, the greatest anxiety being felt by those whose relatives or friends might possibly have been travelling by the train; indeed, the scene upon the arrival of the passengers on the platform was not calculated to allay appre hension. All appeared more or less frightened, while several showed unmistakable evidence" of having sustained injuries. Every attention was shown to the latter by the officials con nected with the line. Soma were accommo dated in the sitting-rooms, and restoratives applied, while others, who seemed more seriously hurt, were conveyed t...
THE CHARGES FOR WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 January 1869
THE CHARGES FOR WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald,') Sir,—In a leading article in jour issue of last Saturday, you remarked—" We believe that for about £7 we can procure as much water in Echuca as costs about £5 in Sand hurst, where the works have been initiated more than ten times as long as- ours." It strikes me that you have put the boot on the wrong leg, and that you should have said " Sandhurst gets as much water for. £5 as we, with our two rivers, can get for £7." I am, Sir, your obedient servant, " Q.
FATAL ACCIDENT AT LAKE MOIRA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 January 1869
FATAL ACCIDENT AT LAKE M 01 It A. We regret to learn that a fatal accident by drowning occurred at Lake Moira, on Friday evening last, to a bullock driver named Wil liam Burke, who with his own and other teams was camped near the lake. It appears that the deceased had spoken of his intentioB of going into Ecbuca again, and that there fore his absence occasioned no surprise. He had, however, gone down to the lake for the purpose of indulging in a bath, and having, it is presumed, got out of his depth, he was drowned. 'I he discovery of his clothes was the first cause leading to the knowledge ofbis untimely fate, and a search for the body was instituted. It was finally recovered through the exertions of some blackfellows. A magis terial inquiry was subsequently held by Mr Maunsell, P.M. of Moama, and a verdict in accordance with the facts returned.
THE ROCHESTER SHOOTING CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 January 1869
THE ROCHESTER SHOOTING CASE. Alfred Moore was for the last time brought up before the Echuoa Police Court yesterday morning, charged with having feloniously shot at John Glover, alias "Yorkev," with intent to murder bitn at Rochester, on the 24th of last December. The prosecutor was at length enabled to leave the Bendigo Hospital, and as his evidence—taken in con nection with that of several other witnesses— was quite sufficient to establish a prima facie case, the prisoner was committed for trial. He certainly does not in the least look like a murderer, and we incline to the opinion that his statement to the effect that he was mad from drink when he fired the shot, is not very far from correct. In the box ho looked very much agitated, though his excitement was evidently not caused by fear. Still theTe was not an atom of swagger about him, and w;e fancy that, leaving consequences altogether out of the question, he was sorry for the rash and guilty act ho had committed. He several ti...
THE QUALITY OF OUR MEAT. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 January 1869
: THE QUALITY OF OUR MEAT. CTo the Editor of the Riveruie Herald,) Sir,—Not very long ago I read in your paper nn article advocating the preserving of meat, to be sent home in tins to the poor people in the old country. I don't know if any good beef or mutton was shipped since then, but if it was, the sooner we could get some of it back to Echuca the better, for 1 didn't see a decent chop, steak, or joint for many a day.- The beef is poor and stringy - and the mutton like as if the poor sheep died of a lingering consumption. I looked in your paper the other day and saw that "prime sheep " were sold in Melbourne, at 8s eachy while second-class ones were—I forget whe | ther it was "quitted" or ^parted," or "changed hands "at 6s. As the difference in price is so very small, I think our butchers ought to keep a few of the prime ones for some Echuca people who are—like me— _ HALF STARVED.

The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 13, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 January 1869
ECHUCA, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 13, 1869. In another column will be found a letter from a correspondent, who modestly adopts the somewhat notorious signature " Q." In order to prevent all stupid mistakes, we may at the very start inform our'readers that the original Peripatetic Philosopher has had nothing whatever to do with the epistle to which we refer. On last Saturday we said "We believe that for about £7 we can procure as much water in Echuca as costs about £5 in Sand hurst, where the works have been initiated more than ten times as long as ours." " Q" thinks wo have " put the boot on the wrong leg" (as he figuratively expresses it), and coolly informs us that we should have said "Sandhurst gets as much water for £5 as we, with our two rivers, can get for £?." After four days' consideration, after having been earwigged and advised, after having been " reasoned with" by those who drink much water, and threatened by those who should certainly drink more, we are still unable to withdraw o...
PASTORAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 January 1869
PASTORAL. The farmers of Little Kiver recently asked the permission of Mr Grant to take their starving cattle to the Cape Otway Ranges. Permission being conceded, they purpose mustering their cattle, numbering between 300 and 400, and starting forthwith. It was reported to them that recent fires had com pletely destroyed all the food on the ranges; but a special messenger, who had been des-1 patched to make inquiries, has ascertained ! that there is still feed sufficient for a con siderable number of stock. It is intended to build a large yard for the security of the , cattle at night, and the farmers will form themselves into gangs for the purpose of watching them until their return home, which will be when the dry season has terminated. Phillip Island (says the Herald) has an historical interest for land reformers, inas much as it was one of the early battle gionnds of party, under the leadership of Wilson Gray. Mr M'Haffir triumphed then; but circumstances are too strong for the ...
THE MURDER AT ST. ARNAUD. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 January 1869
THE MURDER AT ST. ARNAUD. fFROH THE BAXLA.EA.T STAB, JAN. 14.1 The first intelligence, the bare fact of a moat brutal and bloodthirsty murder having been committed in the middlo of the day at a spot about a mile and a half from St. Arnaud, was made known in town on Tuesday evening, but no particulars ottne to hand till yesterday. From what we have learned of the matter, it appears that the murdered man was Mr Amos Cheale, who was connected with the St. Arnaud Silver Mine as manager, an:l the murderer a man who has been a long time engaged in the same mining interest, and pretty well known not only to people who have lived in the district, but to many pereons all over the colony. The murder took place at half-past one o'clock p.m. on Tues day, whiie Mr Cheale was on his return home from a visit to the Fiiburg Silver Mine, into the management of whioh he had been put by Mr Dennys, of Geelong, and which he was tryins to reform and bring info proper working order. The murderer, Andrew V...
ABOLITION OF THE DISTRICT SURVEY OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 16 January 1869
abolition of the district survey office. The proposed removal of the district sur veyor, Mr Langford, from Echuca, and the presumed consequent closing of tho survey office in that borough, formed the subject of an interview on Wednesday between Mr Grant and a deputation from Echuca, con sisting of Mr Towle, the mayor, and Mr Pascoe, the town clerk and surveyor, intro duced by Mr i&lt;'razer, M.L.A. The deputation said the people of Echuca had beard with feelings of much alarm that the Minister proposed doing away with the survey depart ment in that dis:rict, as the doing so, in their opinion, would tend much to retard its settle ment, and be a source of great inconvenience and loss to those who had already made it their home, and who had to pay rent. They also contended that the district was in char acter and extent of sufficient importance to claim a resident officer; and, in support of J this view, said it had a frontage to the Murray of 650 miles, besides large frontages ...

SANDHURST TRAFFIC RATES. A large deputation from Sandhurst and the outlying districts thereof had an interview with the Commissioner of Railways on Wed nesday morning. The hon Mr Sullivan, the hon Mr Casey, Mr Burrowes and Mr Maokay, M.L A s, were present. The deputation re presented the Borough Council of Sandhurst, and the Marong, Strathfieldsaye, and Huntly Shire Councils. They asked for a reduction in the rates charged for wheat and flour. It was represented that there had been a con siderable increase in the growth of cereals, owing to the operations of the 42nd section of the Land Act, and the iarmers were de sirous of obtaining a cheaper access to the metropolitan market than tbey at present possessed. They urged that at least they ought only to be charged equable rates with iichuca, the carriage per ton of wheat—25s —being the Eame, though there was a very •considerable distance between them. It was thought that if facilities were given them of sending their produce to Melbo...

: It ins transpired that the general manager of the Australasian Extract of Meat and Cattle Company sailed for Sydney in; the Samarang, which left Graveaend on the 29th ultimo, in order to commence operations in tlie; colony. He leaves with the good wishes of all Englishmen, except batchers and graziers. But Australia is not likely to he without competitors in the work of augment ing our food supplies. By an important letter in the Times, we learn that enterprising individuals in the states bordering on the River Plate are contemplating furnishing our markets with consignments of live cattle from the rich prairie lands of the South American States. The writer (Mr Wilfred Latham of Buenos Ayres), says:—"Within the past few weeks chere has been proposed the plan of exporting cattle hence into Eng land by means of a powerful steam fleet. Agents have arrived here, the representatives of a company, and have petitioned the Argen tine Government for a monopoly of cattle export for a term o...
