COLLECTOR BREVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 10 March 1881

COLLECTOR BREVITIES. Poultry very cheap in Sydney. Fat cattle are up in the market. The public mind-very much agitated. At the ball the other night the belie shone re splendent. - It is proposed to let the Recreation Ground for a fattenning paddock. Most landowners in this part are selling their cattle and stocking with sheep. Only one magistrate put in an appearance on court day--very inconvenient for the public. In the one ineings cricket match on Saturday. Langley scored well for the married men, making 48 runs. The married men won the cricket match on Saturday last.

A man was so offensive to the lench on Friday, at the Police Court-he had to be run out by a policeman. The heat of the sun was very intense on. Friday last-several people were utterly prostrated.

RHYANA PICNIC RACES, THESE annual races came oft on Tuesday last, and were attended by about four hun dred persons, amongst whom were many of the leading residents of Goulbumrn and dis trict; and had the day been fine throughout, we have no doubt that the attendance would have been even greater.

The' races on the whole were very fair; and there was nothing to mar the day's pro ceedings. Mr. H. F. Hartley gave every satisfaction as judge, as also did Mr. D. Confoy as starter.

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Evening Penny Post — 12 March 1881

COMIERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. SATURDAY. BUSINESS during the week has been tolerably active, and produce of various kinds has ar rived in rather greater quantity; but the market is not yet over-supplied. We also find that now the railway has been extended there is a probability of many business people further south selecting Goulburn as their market. This of course will be a work of some little time, but we think it will ulti mately secure to the city a large proportion of the Riverina trade. Wool.-There has not been much business in this line, owing to the fact of most of the staple having been sent to market in such large quantities for some time past. Hides.-The market is more active for these, and prices remain firm at late quota tions. Sheepskins.-The market is tolerably ac tive just now, and there are buyers for any quantity at prices slightly better than quoted in our last. Tallow.-We have not heard of any very important transactions in this commodity, and prices remain stationary ...
