THE LOWER LODDON. KERANG, 8th March, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 March 1869
THE LOWER LODDON. (from oun irwm cok respondent.') K.ERANG, 8th March, 1869. We are at present labouring under no Jess than three grievances, the least of which would be sufficient to make an Englishman exercise his proud birthright of grumbling. First, our telegraph office has been closed for the last five days, owing to some depart mental changes. Next is the scarcity of magistrates, a grievance that has grown to be almost unbearable; the other day a gentle man rode thirty miles to the residence of the' nearest J.P., to obtain a warrant against a man who had absconded, in his debt; the magistrate was not at home, and the culprit escaped. Even at Swan Hiil it is not un common for a suitor or a defendant to attend the court from a great distance, and, after hanging about that opulent and busy "city"' for the whole day, to be told by the clerk of petty sessions that the court is adjourned for a week. I wonder, by-the-bye, is that gentleman a bachelor. One of our towns people was serv...
The Riverine Herald. ECEUCA, SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 March 1869
ECEUCA/ SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1869. On last Tuesday-iiight we received from Mr Jones, of Deniliquin, the 'following telegram with reference to that gentleman^ -case with Mr GilesSydney," Tuesday. Giles v Pastoral Times. The full Court discharged rule nisi." Our reason for treating our readers to a secoed edition of this message (for which we fee 1 most grateful) is to show them how fully we were justified in explaining, as we did, that Mr Jones had very decidedly got the best of it." We thought so at the time, but we are by no means so certain «f it now, for we find in the Itivenne Advertiser of last Thursday the following telegram from Messrs Levy and De Lissa, solicitors, Sydney i—" March 9th, 2.45 p.m. Giles v Jones. Rule discharged without costs, by consent of plaintiff's couasel, on suggestion of Court for arrangement.'" Now, it will be perceived that if Mr Jonss had given to us the same intelligence which he supplied to the Biverine Advertiser—his own journal—he would have preve...
MURDER OF AN ABORIGINAL AT ECHUCA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 March 1869
MURDER OF AN ABORIGINAL AT ECHUOA. At about half-past eight o'clock on Thurs day morning a well known aboriginal named I Tallyho informed the police that a murder had been committed at the blackfellows' camping I place, situate at Deep Creek, Echuca. Sergeant Cleary and Constable Balfour im mediately started for the scene of the tragedy, and found, steeped in her own blood, the body of an aboriginal named Kitty. On making inquiries they were told that at sun rise that morning the unfortunate woman had been murdered by a middle-aged blackfellow named Davy, who, accompanied by two others, had crossed by the Moama Punt into New South Wales very shortly after the fatal occurrence. The police were handed a long and rather light stick, with some blood spots upon it, and they were informed that this was the instrument with which the murder had been committed. The body was conveyed to the Echuca Hotel, in order that a post mortem examination might be made previous to the coroner's inquiry. ...

ECHUCA COMMON SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 13 March 1869
ECHUCA COMMON SHHOOT. The Committee of the Echuca Common School paid that excellent institution a vi;it yesterday afternoon, and had the satisfaction of finding a verj' decided improvement in the children, many of whom may now be said to be in so high a state of efficiency as to reflect great credit upon Mr Hartshorn—their inde fatigable teacher, while the infant class— under the careful conduct of Miss Trainor, is deserving of scarcely less praise. Amongst those who were present we noticed Mr J. L. Archer (Bank of Victoria), Mr Shackell, J.P., Mr Thomas Mitchell, Mr M'Arthur, and Mr Noble. At about three1 o'clock a considerable number of the little fellows were drawn up outside the school, when they were put through a variety of gymnastic exercises and military evolutions. The former were executed with a vigour that spoke volumes for tho beef and mutton of Australia Felix, while the latter were effected with a skill and a precision that would shame many a company of Victorian volun...

As yet there are no signs of the approach of rain, and ioyond this there is little left us to say.

EARLY HISTORY OF SMALL POX IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 March 1869
EARLY HISTORY OF SMALL POX IN AUSTRALIA. As everything relating' to small pox must be more or less interesting just now, we give the following extracts from David Collins's "Account of the English Colony in New South Wales."—London, 1798:— " Early in the moDlh (April 1789) and through ont its oontinuance, the people whose business oalled them down the harbour daily reported that they fonnd, either in excavations of the rook, or lying upon the beaohea and points of the different coves whioh they had been in, the bodies of many of the wretohed natives of the oountry. The oause of this mortality remained unknown until a family was brought up and the disorder pro noanoed to have been the small-pox. It was not a desirable circumstance to introduce a disorder into the colony which was raging with 6uoh fatal violence among the natives of the oountry ; but the saving the lives of any of these people was an objeot of no small importance, as the knowledge of our humanity and the benefits whio...
THE HON. J. M'CULLOCH'S SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 March 1869
f«TTf? trnN -T. M'CULLOCH'S SHEEP. in" - - - We have the welcome news (says the Pastoral Times) that tbe "water is descending the Darlmg in great force, and that the first fresh is followed by a second rush many feet in height. It was high time, as the stock news has been most deplorable for a long time past. Referring to the report current respecting the Hon James M'Culloch's sheep on his Darling stations, it appears that water and feed have been very scarce there. When the party in charge of Messrs Shanalran and Jennings' Bheep (brought from the Darling recently to Deniliquin) passed down the Darling, Mr Bacon, one of the men, was informed that 70,000 of Mr M'Culloch's sheep were being brought to the frontage from the back country, distant sixty or seventy miles—that tbe sheep had been driven away from the rightful pasturage in order to save them from starvation, and that large numbers bad died. Mr M'Culloch's superintendent had, however, lately suc ceeded in securing water ob tir...
APOLOGY. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 March 1869
APOLOGY. CTo the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) • Sir,—At the Borough Coaooil meeting, reported iD your paper of the 10th instant, a document Written bv me was presented by Mr Hansen and read to the Counoil, in whioh a statement was made that Mr Paeooe, though the Town Surveyor} had surreptitiously managed to make the oon traotors for paving High-street pay Mr Landy £5 for laying out the levels. After hearing Mr Pasooe's explanation, and seeing the contract myself, I find I was altogether wrong, as I find it distinctly laid down in the Council's own printed conditions, as also in the written speoifioations, that " the oontraotors shall lay ont all the work aooording to plans and specifications at bis own risk and cost." Under these Circumstances I feel it my dnty to express my regret at the injustice done Mr Paacoe, and do now apologise to that gentleman. , 18th Match, 1865.
ARRIVAL OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE 'DUKE OF EDINBURGH AT SYDNEY. (Abridged from the Morning Herald's) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 March 1869
ARRIVAL OP HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE 'DUKE Q£ EDINBURGH AT svnroEY (Abridged from the Mornintr Herald's During the whole of Wednesday last, long before it was possible that H. M. ship Galatea could be near the Heads of Port Jackson, great was the excitement and many and vague the anticipations as to thaapproaching arrival of that well-remembered vessel. Flags were hoisted in several parts of the city, and other preparations made in honour of the expected event'; one which has naturally been looked forward to for some weeks past with the deepest interest by thousands of persons in this community. Our royal and distinguished Prince 'doeB not this time come amongst us with all that state and ceremony which sur rounded him at his first visit, but he now seems to be much nearer to us all than he was then; and he has, moreover, been pleased to come back to as under circumstances rendering his reappearance upon these shores a matter of peculiar—of nniversal gratification* such as entitle him ...
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 March 1869
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Southern Cross, Feb. 26.) We have received the following highly important letter from our Alexandra corres pondent :— Alexandha, February 23. Yesterday Tamati Ngapora sent a letter into camp informing us of the massacre at White Uliffs, of which the following is a translation:— "Te Kuiti, February 21,1869. "To tho pakehas of Waikato at Alexandra: The pakehas at White Cliffs are dead, and Whiteley the minister; It is as Wetere, of Ngatimaniapoto. (Signed) Tamati Ngapora." I have seen several natives 6ince, and they all say they only received the news at Tokan gamutu on Sunday last. I hardly know how to understand Tamati's letter; he simply informs us of the fact, but does not express any opinion he may have on the matter. The natives say that he and the King are very dark on the affair, and that, should war take place, the Waikatos will stand neutral in this case. We appear to have had a narrow escape here. The King, Ngapora, and Rewi were present at...
