MESSRS BENSON AND CO.'S REPORT. Saturday, 27th March. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

MESSES BENSON AND CO.'S REPORT. Saturday, 27th March. | Horse Market.—Although we have effected sales of a number of useful draught horses during the week, tho demand on Saturday was very limited, and business was difficult to bring about. It is however a noticeable fact that the horse business upon all holiday occasions is aB a rule moro affected than almost any other branch of trade, and this combined with the continued drought is quita sufficient to account for any inactivity. We may quote medium draught horses at from .£14 to £25; heavy draught from £30 to £45; hacks and light harness horses from £5 to £16. Dairy Cattle —Superior milch cows saleable at from £6 to £7; iuferior cattle difficult to move off even at low rates. Pio am) Poultry Market.—The pig market still • continues satisfactory, and hud it uot been for the ex treme heat of the weather wo believe that a further advance in prices would have taken place on Thursday. We had a good BUjjply of pigs cf excellent quality, ...

VICTORIA RACING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

VICTORIA RACING CLUB. The autumn meeting of" the Victoria Ra cing Olub commeneed at the Flemington course on Saturday, and may fairly be said to have been a success, though the attendance was not so good as on former occasions, and though the full enjoyment of the day was somewhat marred by two unfortunate events. The first was the row between Mr George Watson (the owner of the horse Ballarat), and Mr Hurtle Fisher (one of the handicap pers). It appears that the former denounced the handicappers as "a set of robbers," whereupon the latter assaulted him. The second unhappy incident was of a still more serious character, calling for instant efforts to discover and punish the guilty offender. It appears that after the last race on Flemidgton Course on Saturday, Mr J. Wilson's br g Gondolier, who had run in the Ascot Vale Stakes, when on the road to town betrayed unmistakeable symptoms of having been poi soned, and dropped to the ground in fearful agony. With some difficulty he was got ...

A DEATH IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

A DEATH IN THE BUSH. In the absence of the Coroner, his Worship I the Mayor held a magisterial inquiry at the Bridge Hotel yesterday morning, touching the death of a foreigner, name unknown (supposed to be a Norwegian), who died on the morning of the previous day at Mr Glass's station, Wharparilla. Constable M'Donald deposed that at about two o'clock in the afternoon he went to Mr Glass's station, and found the deceased lying upon his back. His left arm, and one of his legs were raised up. On searching him he found in his pockets two sixpenny pieces, a threepenny piece, and a pipe, but no papers of any kind. He exhibited no marks of violence. Witness had never seen the man before. He had him conveyed to the Bridge Hotel. Frank Desoritz, a native of Portugal, stated that he had been in company with deceased on Monday morning before breakfast, and that he had left him for the purpose of bor rowing a tarpaulin with a view of erecting a tent. When leaving him witness asked the deceased ...

EASTER SPORTS IN SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

.EASTER SPORTS IN SANDHURST. Tbo sports, held under the auspices of Messrs He.ffernnn und Hadley, in the Camp Heserve on Easter Monday were most success ful, about, 2500 persons having been present. The great event of the day was thp. One Hun dred and Fifty Yards Handicap Race—25 "•uincas trophy, with 5 sovs added. The fol lowing1 started:—J. G. Harris, scratch; S. H. Webb, 7 yards; James Evans, 7 yards; Tlicmas Evans, 7 yards; S. Wiesemeyer, 7 ytirrs. This was expected to be a capital raco, as ii included the crack runners of Mel lourne and Sandhurst; the result, however^ was not up to expectation so far as an exciting race was concerned, but it was in the fact that Harris came in winner as he liked. At about 80 yards from home Harris and the two Evans were abreast; Thomas Evans made a gallant effort to get to the front, but Harris kept his eye on him, and just maintained a lead- of half a yard, by which distance he won, James Evans being third, three yards behind.

SHOCKING MURDER NEAR SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

SHOCKING MURDER NEAR SAND HURST. (From the Bendigo Advertiser.) On Saturday an old miner named Patrick Bakey, on returning heme from a visit to Eaglehawk with his wife and son, callled at Dorman's shanty, at the head of Beelzebub Gully, and had some liquor. The person in charge of the shanty—a man named W. i Dowson—made some disparaging remarks about Mrs Bakey, and this was resented hotly by her husband. The son also joined in the quarrel, and was hit by Dowson. This added fuel to the row, and Dowson and Bakey had a scuffle, but were separated by a coloured man, and Bakey was taken outside. Dowson then went into a back room and brought out a gun and pointed it at Bakey, who was only a «few feet off. Bakey told him to fire if he pleased, upon which Dowson fired, and the shot took effect in Bakey's abdomen, and he staggered and fell, exclaiming, " I did not think you would have shot me." The police and a doctor were at once sent for, and Senior Constable Mitchell with Dr Keiran soon a...

ECHUCA. POLICE COURT. Saturday, 27th March. (Before Mr Shaokell, J. P.) Robert Cassell, a lad aged about soventeen, waa brought before the bench, charged with being insane. It appeared that his mind had been upset through his having witnessed a fire at the Great Britain claim, Huntley, some two months before. Since then he ran away from home un two several occasions, and on the last one he was found at Hunnymede by the police. He was remanded to this day. Monday, 29 h Marob. (Before Mr Shaokell, J.P.)

TERMINATION OF THE DROUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

TERMINATION OJ? THE DROUGHT. We believe we tnaysafely say tbat thelongesi and most disastrous drought with whici Riverina has ever crnelly been oppressed, has at, length terminated, and in a mode happier than any one was sanguine enough to hope or to expect. For months past the cry has been " the sheep are literally perishing- fur want of wa?er,iand when rain does come they will die off even faster than before." L was feared that the moisture would be accompanied by cold, and that the effect on the already debilitated-sheep would bemostcalamitois, but hopes are now entertained that such will not be the case. As yet the rain has not brought much cold, and even the few warm dajs that followed the first showers have done a perfect world of good. When we were going to press on last Friday it was still raining, but it cleared up Bhortly afterwards, and the day and evening were fine. On Sunday the sky looked dark and promising (it would once have been called threstening), and there was mu...

The Riberine Herald. BCHUCA, WEDNESDAY MARCH 31,1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

BCftUCA, WEDNESDAY MAKCE 31,1869. We believe tbe all-absorbing question of the hour is—Why should Charles Edwin Jones —all covered with political infamy, laughed at by the Constitutionals who bought him, and denounced by his Loyal Liberal and total abstinence colleague, Mr Yale—have been tri umphantly re-elected to represent in the Assembly'one of the most important consti tuencies in Anstralasia—why should one tially charged with perjury, and who had not been acquitted by a jury of his countrymen— be once more returned to pollute, by his very presence there, that chamber for which such unlimited powers and privileges are at present claimed ? Some will inconsiderately say there is no answer; but we modestly submit that, even in such a case, it is po-sible that some thing might yet remain to be snid. Scarcely an atom of tho human body has been left nnexplor&i by " prospecting par ties " sent forth by Science, and there is scarcely a malady, an ailment, or an epidemic that can...

PIGEON MATCH AT MOAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

PIGEON MATCH AT MOAMA. Mr Boylan's pigeon shooting matoh went off merrily in the paddook at the rear of the Jnnotion Inn, Moama, on Easter Monday afternoon. We believe oar readers are already acquainted with the conditions:—Ten subBoribers at £1 each, three birds, twenty-one yarde' rise, and eiehty yards' boundary. Several of the tubsoribers were unavoidably nbsent, hat no trouble was ex perienced in finding: substitutes for those who were away. The shooting was not particularly goad, bnt thp marksmen and, we believe, the bystanders, who numbered over 100, enjoyed it all the same. The birds wsre trapped by Mr Humphrey?, and polled by Mr Waiting ; and we may say these gentlemen ga*e much satisfaction. Mr P. 0. I'ieroe (who shot for Mr R. N. Powell) being the only one who brought dnwn hia three birds, was dtolnred tlio winner of the mutch. In shotting for Mr Aroher, Mr Pieroe killed one, and claimed another which fell olose to the boun dary line, but the claim was not allowed. An exce...

CHURCH OF ENGLAND SUNDAY SCHOOL. ANNUAL FESTIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 31 March 1869

CHURCH OF ENGLAND SUNDAY SCHOOL. • I ANNUAL FESTIVAL. , Anxious as the adults have beon for copious rainfalls during many months back, the gloomy and threatening aspect of the weather was viewed with unfeigned and most unqualified dissatisfaction by some two hun dred children on Easter Monday morning; and, with an utter disregard of the pastoral interest, the discontent was shared by many , prudent and sensible matrons, as they gazed j upon their neatly dressed offspring, and calcu lated the probable length of time it would take to sodden their hats, and wash out the colours, the flowers, and the starch. It was the annual festival of the Church of England vSunday School, and though many of the little ones had prByed for water on the pre vious Sunday, they earnestly hoped that their supplications might, for at least some little time, be delayed. On former occasions, the cakes, tea, fruit, and other good things were served out alfresco in the Park; but, seeing the probability of bad w...
