ROOF IN THE ROADS. BENDIGO ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 3 February 1877
OO7 I1V THE RA D,.. IENDIGO ADVERTISER. Can we not' do something with this abominably hot weather? Can we not turn in to account in some way,- extract somse good from it, for the daily infliction of being partially fried ! Our 'cute American friends are usunlly equal to most emergencies, but even they have not yet discovered the means of abating the heat of a baking sum mer's day,'and Captain Naresdoesnot appear to have effected any arrangement for: a supply of icebergs from the north. The sun keeps furiously blinking at us, and as we have no cloud-compelling Jove, we cannot veil his amatory ardor-drop a curtain be tween us mundanes and the solar warmth. But we can do something, and we have done. not a little indeed, but still leaving ample scope for further effort.. ' A writer in a public journal lately eipressed the satisfae tion he experienced on the occasion of a visit to Sandhurst, at the sight of the trees , plaxited in all parts of "he public thorough. fares, the pleasure to ...

The Chronicle. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 3 February 1877
SATURDAY, FEBRUARYS , 1877. THE statesman who will initiate, and carry to a successful issue, some prac tical scheme of forest conservation will deserve well of his countrymen. The important part that forests play in the economy of nature is becoming univer sally recognised; and the reckless and indiscriminate destruction of timber now and always going on is but too well known. It is almost appalling to think of the frightful waste of God's gifts as exemplified in the wholesale destruction, in a few years, of extensive tracts of woodland, which it has taken the slowly elaborating powers of nature as many cen turies perhaps to build up. It is not what is actually required for use, or is in any way made available for man's purposes, that should be saved from destruction; but it is the more extensive slaughter that arises from the careless manner in which the work is carried on. Where ever forest land has passed out of the hands of the Government into that of private individuals, it mi...

NON-CLOSING OF ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 6 February 1877
NON-CtBIIND OROALSW. The folly of those who desire to see every road in the eolony opened and fenced off re ceived a signal illustration at yesterday's mieeting oi the shire council. At a previous meeting of the council a request had been received to open. np all the roads in the parish of Nirranda. At this meeting a counter petition was sent in, stating that if the roads were opened and fenced, it would not only be a source of needless expense, but it would in many instances' substitute impassable roads for a choice of routes, The petitioners.did not atsk that the roadi should be closed or kept unopened, but they pointed out that gates would in all cases be preferable to the roads being opened and fenced. This statement, coming from farmers and selectors, was confirmed by councillors who are well acquainted.with the parish, and there is no doubt that it is applicable to a great portion of the colony. Those who seek to open up all roads of the colony, whether required for public tra...
MEREDITH SHIRE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, 31ST JANUARY. UNLOCKED SWING GATES. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 6 February 1877
MfEREDITHIT SHIRE COUNCIL. WEDNtESDAY, 315T JANUARY. UNLOCKED SWING GATES. The CxIncil proceed.l to deal with appli cations fro:n residents for permission to erect unlocked swing gates on various roads running through their selections. Cr. Cooper drew attention to the fact that there were two councillors who were applicants, viz., the Chairman and Cr. Henderson. He contended that those councillors could not vote on any subject in which they were pecuniarily interested. The Chairman stated that the Act did not prevent councillors from voting in the matter of gates in which they had an interest. For his own part he was satisfied to take all responsibility. Cr. Henderson was about to leave the Council Chamber when he was told by the Chairman that he need not vote unless he liked. Mr. Michael Ward, of Meredith, attended, and objected to any obstruction being allowed to be placed on the roads. The Chairman asked if anyone supported Mr. Ward, when the latter replied that he objected on hi...

WARR.YAJBOOL SHIRE CO UCCIL. TIUTRSDAY, FEBRK ARY THE IST. CLOSED ROADS I:U MSeIRADA. The following petition] signed by Michael Gavin, Michael Bradlay, and fifteen other ratepayers inNirranda, remonstrating against the opening of all roads in Nirranda, was read: The petition of the undersigned selectors in the parish of lNirranda showeth, that your petitioners look with much concern on the action of the Council in reference to a peti tion discussed at the last sitting of the members, and purporting to be singed by a few residents in the said parish, asking the Council to order the opening of all the roads. This action we beg to state would be of no benefit to any one resident, as free access can now be obtained to the coast, but if all the roads are fencedoff, it willbea great expenseto some of us, and to do so would be to lock some of us in our holdings, as even at this geason some spots would be impassible even on borseback.

AMERICAN SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 6 February 1877
The Senate has decided that the joint rules which will have so much bearing on the elec tion question are not in force. This is against Tilden's interest. The scheme to impeach President Grant was defeated by the Southern Delegation. At the burning of the Brooklyn Theatre, men and women were reduced to ashes in a heap. Three hundred and sixty-eight per sons are reported to have lost their lives. The obsequies were imposing, the whole city going into mourning. A despatch to the Morning Call from 3rooklyn describes the funeral of the sufferers, and says that that the burial of the bodies of the victims was a fitting end to oni of the most doleful histories of modern timts. All the bodies in the morgue were removed to the tem porary deadhouse, where there were in all a hundred charred corpses. The throng about the market was very large, and the utmost excitement prevailed. Congressional committees from Washington have gone down South to examine into the frauds alleged to have been comm...
