AUSTRALIA BECOMING A TOTTER COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 1 May 1877

AUSTRALIA BECOMING A WETTER COUNTRY. {From the Brisbane Courier). The name of Landsborough, the explorer,* is familar to our readers as that of a man .well acquainted with this country. In a lecture delivered by him recently at Oxley, he brings forward some unusual reasons for the obvious change that is going on in the climate of this country. In his lecture Mr. Landsborough said : There was a time, not so long ago, when after a fine season there were all over the whole breadth of the land magnificent crops of grass, which were untrodden and uneaten. As soon as the grass became dry the bush fires used to run without much hindrance from one side of the country to the other. There were, of course, the fern-tree gullies, the cedar brushes, and other scrubs, such as those known as tea-tree, whipstick, oak, pine, brigalow, mulga, gidya, and malice, which- stayed the progress of the flames, in so far as the land occupied by them went ; but the fires soon wound round them, and got into the...

TESTIMONIAL TO MR. JOHN ROBERTSON, LATE COLONIAL SECRETARY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 1 May 1877

TESTIMONIAL TO MR. JOHN' ROBERT- SON, LATE COLONIAL SECRETARY. (S. M. Herald). In 1870, a movement was initiated and con cluded (so far as the collection and receipt of subscriptions was concerned) to recognise in a sudstantial way the. public services of Mr. John Robertson, M.L.A. The result was the contribution of £2714/13/8 by: from two thousand five hundred to three thousand subscribers, living in all parts of the colony. The severe floods which visited this colony during that year told severely upon the con tributing: power of those classes who would otherwise most willingly have contributed. Other and various causes have prevented the movement from being finally closed until Friday, when a meeting of the committee appointed at the public meeting, held in the Masonic Hall, on the 7th March, 1870, was held at the offices of the Hon.' S. D. Gordon, M.L.C., Pttt-street, Mr. George Thornton in the chair. Mr. Thomas Garrett (who, with Mr. M. Burdekin, was secretary to the movement),...

COMMBECIAL. Herald Office, Monday. The weather during the week has, to an ex tent. maintained that agreeable change chror nicled in our last. A perfect break appears to have taken place ; and the monotonously hot, dry days, which have been so charac teristic for months past, have given place to bitter winds, frequent showers, and oc casional frosts. Altogether the weather now experienced indicates that summer has pas sed, and winter fairly commenced. _ From all parts of the district the reports given in reference to the late rain are most satis factory.- ? The insatiable thirst of the farmers has at last been quenched ; and we no longer hear the cry of parched land, empty dams, and cattle and sheep dying from want of water. The ground _ is ' now _ throughly saturated; and ploughing for winter crops almost in full swing. It is, however, feared that the supply of feed for ..winter will be very limited. Several mornings during the week the ground has been quite white with frost ; and t...

CORRESPONDENCE. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 8 May 1877

.CORRESPONDENCE. (to THE editor.) Sir, — A meeting has recently been convened for the purpose of appointing a Vigilance Committee to protect our interests in all public affairs. This is a requirement against which no sensible .person can enter the slightest protest. We all 'know that many matters concerning our general good are neglected for the simple reason that no one person can act without authority from the whole. It behoves us, therefore, to be unanimous in appointing not only a com mittee but one upon whom toe can rely for action , and not the honour of. office. There are in our midst certain people whose weak intellects are ever being agitated in the endeavour to frame further schemes for increasing their own notoriety. These people whose principles have been clearly illustrated in connection with the various offices they have held are a source of so much indignation that I trust the public will display their good sense in erasing such names from amongst those of our Vigilan...
