MUCH WORK FOR LITTLE PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 9 May 1868
MUCH WORK FOR LITTLE PAY. Those who are disposed to grumble at their condition in this laud, will do well to read this extract, taken from many other similar and harder cases, given in an article bearing the above title in ' Good Words.' The women who work at men's clothing are quite as poorly paid. Here is a house inhabited principally by slop-workers and their families. Let us enter one of the rooms on the first-floor. A man, his wife, and their children reside in it. The woman, as you see, is employed on a rough pilot-coat, which will take her between two and three days to do, and for which when completed, she receives from one shilling and threepence to one shilling and sixpence each, finding her own thread and braid for the button-holes out of that. She sometimes does canvas trousers, and for these she is paid only fourpence a-pair, and' for those of cloth of the quality iilco that worn by Boldiers or sailors, she is paid eight ponee each pair. By hard work this poor woman may....
THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 9 May 1868
THE LAND. (From the Sydney Mail, April 25 ) The culture of the Beetroot has received a stimulus in a quarter that was somewhat unexpected. It is now to become the salva tion of Ireland. By a letter in the ' Times' a Mr. De Neumann has called attention to what the sugar beet has done for France, Germany, Belgium, and Russia, where regions of former desolation now exhibit thriving populations ; and he further points to the fact of the ex istence in Europe, on the 1st of January 'last, of 3173 refineries of beet sugar, producing 663,000 tons per annum— worth £20,000,000 per annum. What, ho asks, is to hinder the same reviving industry springing lip in Ire land,' if the same means are adopted? His voice has not been raised in vain ; for his advocacy has drawn a promise from a con siderable number of large farmers to plant 300 and 400 acres with the white Silesian beet this year and a further promise from about twenty landed proprietors to expend. £1000 in the erection of sugar refinerie...
TUMUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 9 May 1868
TVMTJT. (from our cobbespondent) Thursday, May 7th. — Since I last wrote we have had a little rain, and signs of more continue to appear and then 'pass away. Farming operations are almost suspended. The usual weekly meeting of the Tumut Literary Society was held last Monday, and the members present spent a very agreeable evening. Headings and recitations were given from Charles Dickens, Judge Halliburton, Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, -fcc. The society invite young men of the neighbour hood to join their ranks, so that a suitable meeting room may be presently erected and the foundation of a School of Arts laid in Tumut. Mr. Fearne, the photographist, has arrived in town, and has erected a small canvas city in Mr. Mandelson's paddock, at the corner of RuBsell and Wynyard-streets. His arrange ments for taking portraits are certainly very elaborate, and, I should think, complete. The canvas walls are stretched on large wooden frames, and crowned with moveablo glass sky lights and w...

BERRIMA GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 9 May 1868
BERRIMA GAOL. This penal establishment has recently been visited by his Excellency the Governor, Mr. H. Palmer, Colonial Secretary of Queensland, and several members of Government. The Sydney 'Herald ' in referring to this inspec- &nbsp; tion gives the following details as to the prison: — &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; This building is the most prominent feature in the township, and, except for the fresh appearance of the stonework, the front would remind old-world people of a feudal fortress. The high stone wall surrounding the interior buildings includes a quadrangular area of about an acre and half. Within the last five years there have been very important additions, the front having been advanced a considerable distance, so as to give about thirty feet more space inside, and to disconnect the exterior wall from outhouses which afforded despera- does inducement to attempt escape by way of the roofs. The main building is compose...

The Queen is well, and is residing at Windsor. She has resumed holding a Drawing Boom and intends visiting Germany. Parliament has resumed its sittings. The Irish Church question is likely to cause much discussion. The Church Kate Abolition Bill introduced by Mr. Gladstone has passed. Tho settlement of the Alabama claims is being discussed in a friendly spirit. The Prince and Princess of Wales will visit Ireland immediately. Great complaints aro made of tho Austra lian postal arrangements. Fenianism is extinguished, and St. Patrick's Day passed over very quietly in Dublin.

The Abyssinian expedition is progressing, and the officers and men are anxious to storm Magdala, King Theodore's...

POLICE COURTS. GUNDAGAI. Thursday, May 14th. — Before the Police Magistrate. Charles Morris, a shepherd, who was recently fined for stealing some wearing apparel at Mr. Sheiihan's hotel at Jugiong while in a state of drunkenness, and against whom there was also a charge of appropriating silver spoons at the same time, which was not pressed, was brought up charged with stealing a pair of Diue Dianiteis, vaiue ^us., uiu proijen-y or George Smith, a wheelwright residing near the Adelong Crossing-place.

He lighted a candle, and on looking'round the placo saw the marks of footsteps on tho ashes of the chimney, by which the thief had evidently obtained ingress and egress.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. We deeply regret to record the death of Mr. John Ronald Paul, of Adelong, which took placo on Tuesday last. He was for many years one of tho most active and energetic movers in (he public and political affairs of the locality with the interests of which he had identified himself; and, as all old residents know, tho township owes much to his earnest and well directed efforts for its social and material advance and improvement. A keen shrewd man in business matters, he was in private life liberal, warm-hearted, and gene rous ; arid many kindly actions . ho performed will rise to the recollections of those who were connected with him and knew him well. -Ho nevor: fully recovered : from the effects of a sun-stroko he received while resident at the Adelong Crossing Place, and failing health and other causes often rendered him latterly, sadly unlike his former solf.
