THE RACES AT COROP. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 March 1869

■v 1 = - THE RACES AT COROP. To say that the Corop annual races, whioh came off on last Wednesday, were fairly successful might tD^an too little or too much. It would all 'depend iipon what one looked at as a success. Some woold have regard only to the numbers, while others could think of nothing but the 'racing, and third parties would think all well enough where there was fine weather, good Beenery, and pleasant oompany. The lmmbers who were present at Corop could not be positively set down as large,' but taking into account the somewhat scattered nature of the population, it oould not ba said to be very small. In all, there might have been froui 200 to 300 on the turf. The racing was a trifle tame, though it was watohed with evident interest. Some of the events did not fill, but there were Buffioient horses to ensure a very fair day's amusement. Under conduct of the stewards, Messrs. Seward, Leake, P. Nolan, Hamilton, and Wigg, everything wont well, and Messrs Leake, and P. Nolan...

THE COMPLAINT COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 March 1869

THE COMPLAINT COMMITTEE. The committee commenced their work on Wednesday, when the following witnesses were examined at some length:—Messrs Williams, Francis, M'Kean, Bowman, and Butters. In the main the statements tallied pretty closely with the explanations which had been given in the House. On Thursday the committee resumed their sittings, and began with Mr Butters, who had been but partially examined on the preceding day. He said he had received £250 from Mr Peter Snodgrass for his trouble in trying to get the Quietingof Titles Bill passed through the House. He could not tell whether this money had been subscribed or given wholly by Mr Snodgrass. He thought it had been sub scribed. He did not ask. He did not know whether the sum had been paid to him in cash ov by cheque, and he could not tell what he had done with it. He fancied he might have paid it away without having hanked it. Witness, who had been asked about this money on the previous day, and who had made somewhat evasive...

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 March 1869

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. . Tuesday.—In the Legislative Council Mr A'Beokett wished to know why it was that the Argus had misreported the proceedings ■ of the Elections and Qualifications Committee when no reporters should have been present.

HAY. March 15. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 20 March 1869

HAY. March 15.   Mr. James Forsyth reports:— Another week drier and hotter than the last. Let us hope that it is analogous to the Indian summer, that short period of fine warm weather occurring late in the autumn, which on the American continent imme- diately precedes the rain and snows of winter. On the Lachlan the rapidly wasting waterholes   have at length given out, and for fifty miles above Thelangerin the bed of the river is perfectly dry, and all stock have had to be removed from the frontage. The thermometer "has ranged as high as 106 degrees in the shade every day during the week in Hay. As a matter of course there is little or nothing doing in stock, but from the number of inquiries there is evidently a good time coming. I have buyers for well-bred ewes in lamb, a description of stock that has hitherto been entirely neglected this season; and I have placed a few more travelling sheep under offer to local buyers. Freehold properties are more sought...

ABOLITION OF NEWSPAPER : POSTAGE IN N.S. WALES. . .. {Abridged from, the S M. Herald) . On last Wednesday Sir James Martin, moved, as a -question of privilege, the 6eries of amendments of which he had given notice :— " 1.

Tliat this House feels it necessary, in defence of its un doubted right, to deny the power of his Ex cellency to impede any measure for the repeal of the before-mentioned Act, or of any other Act, Inasmuch as such power can be exer cised only in Parliament, and on the motion of some member thereof. 3.

ROBERTSON v. PASTORAL TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 24 March 1869

ROBERTSON v. PASTOHAL TIMES. ^ ( Jfrom the lJastoral Times.) This action, for alleged libel, has been settled by the medium of mutual friends of the plaintiff and defendant. .The declaration contained six counts—as to counts one and two, we have no hesitation in stating that the defendant, Mr D. G. Jones, never made such a statement as is there charged against him. The counts three, four, five and six, in the declaration,, are: chiefly reprints of articles published in the Pastoral 'limes. Mr Robert son judged probably with a mind predisposed to construe wrongly: the correct meaning of the articles as tending to confirm the allega tions contained in'paragraphs or counts one j and two—to which Mr. Jones' has given his unqualified,denial. We unreservedly deny; that , the articles or any of them, or any paragraph, or'sentence, or word therein published could reflect on'Mr Robertson's private character, as stiUed:in the1 controversy from which arose the 'articles which induced MrrRobert...

. JBOKUCA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 1869. BEiNG by no means desirous of losing- our. time by jippe'aring at the bar of the Legisla tive Assembly, partaking of the somewhat expensive hospitality of the Sergeant-at-Arms, and assisting to crowd a lock-up which may soon be required for honourable members, we wish to be very distinctly understood when we say . that, however strange it may seem, Mr Vale's speech at Sebastopol does not evince more sodden hypocrisy than has yet come under our notice, and that it is not the most cowardly series of utterances that' we have ever heard. It was bad enough in all conscience, but there, is no use in going to extremes. He simply denounced in his absence one who had befriended him, and he did so upon an occasion when he was not called upon even remotely to refer to Mr Jones. Mr Vale and Mr Jones were invited to be .present at the opening of a new town hall at Sebastopol, but the latter was un avoidably detained in Melbourne, and, seeing his opportunity,...

The contractors are progressing rapidly with the pits and the various buildings necessary for tlie several branches of the new industry. The pits (twenty-seven in number) are of different sizes, and are constructed of 3 x 12 red gum planking, the ends of each pit being grooved into the sides :ind bolted together with long Jin screw bolts running through between the channels. The different pits are laid down in separate sections upon a bed of puddle six inches thick. The whole of the channels are then filled up with stiff pud He level with top surface of the ...

Mesmerising a Mesmerist.—A. pro fessor of the art or mystery known as mes merism, last week visited Deniliquin (says a local journal), and performed for several evenings at the Royal Assembly-room, which he secured lighted with gas and fitted up free. Tbe professor had nothing to pay but for his bed and board. On Thursday morning he disappeared, forgetting that short reckonings make long friends. Taylor, the landlord, finding that the professor had decamped rode after the master of the mysterious science, and caught him a few miles south of Denili quin, on his road to Melbourne. Taylor im mediately mesmerised the mesmeriser by ad ministering the argumcntum ad Jwminem in the shape of 3 good horsewhipping. The learned professor then disgorged 20s in silver and a pound note, and he was left to pursue his way ia peace.
