TUMBERUMBA. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 22 May 1877

JtjMBERUMBA. (from our correspondent.) . Heavy. rain has fallen since my last, and this being succeeded byHfrosts prevents the grass being improved in nutriment. Mining disputes are frequent, if an exam ple may be the guide, as on the last War den's court-day several cases were heard and decided upon by that functionary. The cases were not of such public interest - that | a record snouia oe Kept, .as tne parties con | corned were the only persons interested. Cattle and sheep now moving from this mountainous district do not seem to have gained much in weight by their several month's ramble — in fact drovers assert that animals being unused to tho mountain feed as secured in these parts do not thrive as expected. I had the opportunity of in specting some two hundred and fifty of a herd of cattle the other day and must con clude with the drover that after a travel for many scores of miles they had -not improved. They were offered for sale at a little over £2 per head, buyers were not t...

GENERAL NEWS IN BRIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 22 May 1877

GENERAL NEWS IN BRIEF. ! The Albert-street Baptist Church, Mel bourne, has resolved to ask Mr. Spur geon to visit the colony. A correspondent says the Burroiva News is for sale, and would prove a capital invest ment in the hands of a pushing man. The Government of South Australia on Thursday last telegraphed to the War Office, London, for the assistance of an officer of the Royal Engineers or Artille.iy to com mand the forces at Adelaide. Tho train on the Tasmanian main lino of railway was upset by a cow. The engine and trucks were piled up into amass on each side of the line. The driver and the fireman were injured. The country districts in South Australia are enamoured of the volunteer movement. A meeting has been held at Adelaide, at which resolutions strongly in favour . of placing the colony in a position to defend itself from foreign aggression, and of the immediate formation of a volunteer force, were carried with acclamation. A_ deputation has been appointed by the Agricultu...

During the discussion on the estimate for the police force the Yass jury who acquitted jSergeant Foley aiid Constable i Townsend, the men who A'shot Father Healy in mistake for a criminal, came in for 'soine sharp criticism'' from some of the members of the Assembly. The representative of the Murrumbidgee, Mr. Leary, is a man who seldom airs his parliamentary eloquence. He is in fact an eloquently silent man ; and it is a pity there are not more of his kind in the House. The majority of our representa tives seem to think, like many newspaper reporters and correspondents, that merit is to be measured by length in what they have to say : while a few of them, by their vulgar impudence and scurrility, make frantic efforts to show that the tongue is indeed an untruly member and that there is no good^ element in their nature to curb it. 'We are glad to have as our representative a man who has sufficient sense to know how to keep silent; and, when he has anything to say, to say it with rea...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 22 May 1877

MISCELLANEOUS. Sheep Snowed up at the Head of the Murray. — The Albury Banner states that some hundreds of thousands of sheep are snowed up in the Toolong and Kiandra Ranges, one mob of 10,000 being in their yards at the Bohong with small prospect of ever getting out. In one case a team of bullocks were procured and dragged a sledge through the snow, thus forming a track through which the sheep wero able to escape. Tidal Phenomena. — A remarkable series of waves reached our coast yesterday. Mr. Russel informs us that at 5.20 a.m. on the 11th the tide guage at Fort Denison records the first of a series of waves which went on at short intervals all day, reaching a maxi mum at about 2 p.m. of three feet six inches rise and fall. At Newcastle the waves began at 5 a.m., and at 11.30 a.m. the harbour water fell 29 inches in four minutes (rise not given), after which oscillations continued but were not so great. At Ballina similar phenomena were observed all day — great- est rise, eighteen...

PUBLIC TOLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 22 May 1877

PUBLIC TOLLS. ( From the Echo.) In affirming the resolution of Mr. Terry, the House expressed its opinion that it is expedient to abolish all tolls on public roads and bridges throughout the colony. It will not be difficult to show that the Assembly has acted wisely in passing the resolution. We have several kinds of roads. There are public main roads and public minor roads, trust roads and muni cipal roads ; but for the present purpose it is necessary only to take into con sideration the subject of those roads and bridges which are public in the official sense of the term, and which are pro vided for on the estimate of the Roads Department. These roads are necessary for the purposes of settlement and for the purposes of government ; tliey are neces sary . to facilitate trade and commerce, and to the development of the resources of the country. The whole colony has an interest in maintaining tlieni ; the whole colony, therefore, ought to pay for them ; and there is no better way of ...

BREACH OF PROMISE ACTION AFTER TEN YEARS' COURTSHIP. (Times.) At the Midland Circuit Court, Leicester, , oil the 2nd March, a Miss Deane brought an action against a Mr. Oldacres for a breach of promise of marriage. The de* fendant was a clergyman. The parties were of mature years, the lady being 31, and the gentleman, who was a widower, above 65 vears of a £re. while the promise was alleged to have been made ten years # ago. The plaintiff was then a schoolmistress at Loughborough, and defendant living with a relative from whom lie had expectations.

Appointments were made for meetings at the Midland Rail way Station at Nottingham from time to time, most of them by letter.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ' Love me, Love my Dorg.'— We have re ceived a communication from a correspond ent, which we defy any man in creation to make sense of. It appears to be a con glomeration of words without any order or reason in them. From the wj6rds ' poison,' ' dogs,' and ' warning' in the jotter we con clude that the writor intended to complain of the careless laying of poisOn on runs, by which valuable dogs are sometimes destroyed: but the only sentences clearly written is that at the commencement of this paragraph and a scripture quotation— ' The righteous man regardeth the life of his beast ; but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.' Per contra , we might say the righteous man should first have regard to his tender lambs, and lot his tender mercies for his neighbours' dogs be an after consideration.

PROGRESS AND RESOURCES OF NEW SOUTH WALES. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 22 May 1877

PROGRESS AND RESOURCES OF NEW SOUTH WALES. {Mr. Charles Robinson' s Pamphlet.) No. hi. Much of the progress of New South Wales is due to the suitability of the climate for the production of fine wool, and the pastoral indus try still contributes more largely to the support of manufactures and the extension of commerce than any other. The narrow tract lying between the sea and the .mountains is better adapted for depasturing long coarse-woolled sheep, and there the Lincoln, Lei cester, and Cotswold breeds, are found. The table-lands and west ern plains are almost wholly stocked with merinos and Sitxon merinos, descended from the flocks of Germany, France, and Spain. The process of acclimatisation has modified the type of the Spanish merino. There has been a decided gain in the softness of the wool and in improvement in the elas ticity ; but, while it has increased in length, it has diminished in density, so that the weight of the fleece remains about * the same, j The increase of the...
