PARLIAMENTARY. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 24 February 1881

P AR LIA MIEN TAR Y., S TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22. T ' the Legislative Aseseibly, ' SMr. Mlyers moved a resolution, decliring that in the opinion of the House the railway rates for eolonial'producowers, excessive and unequal, and slhould be reduced. He stated that although he had ito'intention of complaining of maladministration in reference to the Rlailway Department he could show aniomalies in the railway freights, some of which were owing to the desire of the Government to obtain trafil, and others to the want of sufficient appreciation of the interests of the agriculturists. The concessions recently made would chiefly benefit squatters, millers, and large farmers. The squatters obtained concessions through the influence of capitalists and woolbrokers, and there was no reason why similar concessions should snot be ex, tended to the farmers georerally, who were placed at a d'sadvantage as compared with the farmers of Victoria, who could send their produce to market on easier terms, and...

[REUTER'S TELEGRAMS] LONDON, FEB. 22. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 24 February 1881

[REUTER'S TELEGRAMS 1 LONDON, FEB. 22. T Rev. Dr. Me Cabe, Archbishop of Dublin, has issued a pastoral letter, decIaring the alliance be. tween Parnell and Rochefort as nothing less than impious. He expresses an opinion that Parnell is uniwoithy of the confidence reposed in him by his adherents. The Daily Noews publishes a statement to the effect that the magazine at Cork has been broken into, and. a large quantity of gunpowder stolen therefrom. The report wants confirmation. The trial of the Brahmin Priests and others at Kolapore, Calcutta, on the charge of conspiring together for the murder of the whole of the European inhabitants, has been brought to a close; and. most of the prisoners are found guilty. Several have been sentenced to death, and others to various terms of imprisonment.
