THE STRUGGLING SELECTORS AT THE WIMMERA. THE £100,000 PROPOSAL. THURSDAY'S ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 17 February 1877
THE STBUGGLIN; SELEC2tORS AT THE WIMMERA. THE £100,000 PROPOSAL. FHURSDAYX ARGUS. " According tb the Wimmer.sStar, a movement is on foot for the purpose of assisting the selectors in its district in their preisent sttaiti. The lengthened drought from which this colony has been suffering has no doubt brought many of these men to the verge of ruin, and toppled others over the edge., , It will be remembered that when land was taken up in this directionisome time ago, those who knew the country well prognosticatcd that the selectors would assurredly be put to suffering and loss at some time or other, but their warnings were either dislegarded or treated as the interested statements of men who look upon the advent of an agricultural population irith anything but favour. A succession of wet years gave colour to the contention that no part of the country was better suited to settlement, and it only requiled the pro duction of some wonderful corn plants.in the Legislative Assembly, the ears...
DESTRUCTION OF FISH AND BIRDS BY THE STORM. YESTERDAY'S DAILY TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 17 February 1877
DESTRUCTION OF FISH AND BIRDS BY THE STORM. YESTERDAY'S DAILY TELEGRAPH. Throughout the whole of Thursday the banks of the River Yarra presented quite a novel appearance, being. occupied on either side by numbers of men and boys, who were busily engaged in catching eels and other fish, which were floating down the siream in a helpless condition. Sticks, baskets,. nets, pans, cradles, and even stones were in great demand,- and were effectually used in bringing to land hun dreds of eels, trout, and goldfish, which could be seen in large numbers rising to the surface of the water, and gasping for air. The fish, which had a sickly ap pearance, were caught in shoals, and hawked about the city during the day. The eels were of a size seldom caught in the river, some of them weighing 71b. or 81b., and it would be well for housewives to be cautious in making use of them for food, as many of them were taken out of the liver dead, several Chinamen in par ticular being noticed collecting them i...

The Chronicle. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 17 February 1877
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1877. Is confirmation of the opinions we ex pressed on Tuesday last as to the in expediency and unadvisability of any attempts at the formation of a company to raise £100,000 to assist the struggling selectors in the Wimmera district to tide over their present diffi culties, we take the following from Thursday's Argus:-" No association of capitalists will advance money with out security, and of this licensees have none to offer. Lessees, on the other hand, can give a lien over their pro perty, subject to certain conditions, and it is not plain what advantages they would secure by dealing with the ' capi- talists in Melbourne and elsewhere,' who have been 'sounded,' that they could not now obtain from any ordinary money-lender." This sound common sense view of the subject, by our re spected Melbourne contemporary, does not, however, commend itself to the approval of the Hamilton Spectator, which says:-" The proposal that has been made to establish a company in ...

EUROPEAN 1ELEGRAM8F DIREC tr REUTER'S AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS TELEGRAMS. BY SUBMARINE TELEGRAPH. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. THE EASTERN QUESTION. LONDON, February 15. It is generally stated that a Russian army of 200,000 men and 720 guns is at Kischeneff in splendid condition, ready to cross the Danube. LoNDoN, February 17. England's reply to the Russian circular asking, before arriving at any decision, what course the Powers represented at the conference intend to pursue, depends upon the course of events. Before ex. pressing their views, the Goverument de. sire to know the views of the other Powers. In the House of Commons on Friday night, Mr. Gathorne Hardy, replying to Mr. Gladstone, said that England was not freed from the obligation of the treaties of 1856 and 1871. It would be unjust to Turkey that she should be abandoned, and at the same time saddled with the obligation of those treaties. If Turkey was bound, the rest of Europe was bound. Treaty imposed no duty on England to g...
THE RUSH OF STOCK TO THE MOUNTAINS. SATURDAY'S ALBURY BANNER. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 20 February 1877
THE RMUSH. OF STOCK 2? THE MOfUNTAINS. SATURDAY'S ALBURY BANNER. No one who has not actually visited the ground can form any idea of the enormous number of sheep now depas tured on the runs at the head of the Murray or travelling towards the same locality. Driven out of the lower country by the drought which has left the plains of Riverina as bare as a macadamised road, sheep in thousands are being taken, or have already been transferred, to the splendid summer country in the moun tains between Kiandra and the Murray, which this season is stocked as it never has been stocked before. So far, how ever, the advent of the starved out stock has made no appreciable impression on the pastures. On the mountain sides the grass is still in many places fully three feet high and as green as a green leek; whilst in the valleys where the snow has lain the feed, if not so long, is thicker and sweeter in proportion ; water is abundant in all directions, so that the mountain country is just now a ve...
