The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 14 April 1869

C|e purine JjOTii EGEJJGA. WEDNESDAY: APRIL 14, 18G9. "Lost in the bush !" would form no inap propriata heading for a sensational chapter on the miserable euding of poor Mrs Oliver, who died'afToorangabby station "on last Saturday night, and who left seven young children to bewail her untimely demise. Yet Mrs Oliver was.not one who simply missed her way in the timber, one who sank under fntiyue, exposure, cold, hunger or thirsi; nor one whose last glances saw in the impenetrable brushwood a pitiless living shroud. She'was not the wife of some poor hutkeeper who lived in some remote corner of a broad spreading run, and who, through some sad mischance, was prevented from procuring for her the necessaries of life, or the medical comforts and assistance which alone could keep together the body and the soul. Nor was she old, weakly, or decrepit—one whose days had closely reached the ordinary span,, and one ;for 'whom but -little could- by any possibility be done. Mrs Oliver was none of t...

MESSRS. F. AND G. DESAILLY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 14 April 1869

MESSRS. F. AND G. DESAILLY. Our Lachlan correspondent (says the Pas toral Times) mentioned in bis letter of last week that these gentlemen had abandoned their stations there. We have been ma&ing inquiries a3 to the accuracy of the report., and it is not yet .confirmed. We hope it is not true—we frope as well for the sake cf these spirited squatters as for the public. The failure of a squatting firm, possessed once of such large means and vast experience, would be a serious blow to the interest itself. Five years ago the Desaillys had amassed a fortune of about £80,000. With this sum, and with .thejr great practical knowledge of squatting in ita entirety, they plunged into tbe waterless wilderness north of the Upper Lachlan, and lost the whole of their capital. They left the scene of their misfortunes last week, perhaps for ever. These misfortunes were mainly caused by drought. After leaving Mossgiel station they made their way, via Hay, to the Hon William Campbell's stations...

MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY. Mr Maunsell, Police Magistrate, Moaraa, held judicial inquiry at Toorangabby station, on Monday last, into the cause of the death of Mrs O.iver, wife of Mr Oliver, an overseer of Mr Depraves. Annu M'Donald was stfofn, and deposed as follows: I have known the deceased, Elizabeth Oliver, some time. On Friday last she ap peared in good health. On the following morning (Saturday) she was taken ill in labour. I attended upon her, and about two o'clock she was delivered of a healthy child at the full period, and which is now alive. Nothing unusual occurred during- her con finement up to this date, nor was her labour severe beyond that of ordinary cases. At the time of delivery there was no discharge of any consequence. About two hours after, the afterbirth not having-come away, I placed her sitting orer the steam of hot water, and rubbed the abdomen. After placing her on tlie bed again I observed an increase of the discharge of blood. I did not use any other means to ...

While " the tide is in" on the Murray, Captain Pierce is to be found night and day at his post, never leaving the wheel while real work has to be done, and when there is no other work amusing and enter taining his passengers. . During the low water season it is almost impossible to say where he is to be founds Just now we find faiin mentioned in all the~Melbourne papers as having taken part in a performance at the Theatre Royal, Melbourne, where he appears to have taken a prominent part in an enter tainment for the benefit of Mr Akhnrst, the author of the burlesque of The Battle of Hastings," which hau such a run. ...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 April 1869

BRITISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS. A vigorous movement has commenced in support of emigration to Australia, from j which we anticipate that before long the colonies will derive large benefits. So far :Queensland has taken the lead. The official description of the resources of the province has gained a wide . circulation, and it is pro ducing a wholesome effect, not only among the unemployed artisans of our overcrowded, towns but among the better classes of the rural population in the Southern and Eastern counties. ; We cannot at present give any more definite information upon the subject. It is, however, satisfactory to observe, that'the advantages offered by Australia to honest and persevering industry were never mpre appre ciated than at this moment. Law has been dealing Bternly with eleotion malpractices. Sir A. Guinness is ejected from Dublin, Mr Phippa from Weatbury, Mr O'Beirne from Cashel, and Colonel L. Knox from Sligo.

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 April 1869

TELEGRAPH 10: iN^ELLIGENCE. I From our latest-telegraphic intelligence we gather the follo.wing.:— Sydney. My Dream has been a firm favourite for the Leger, and her price has improved; but a rumour got afloat that something was amiss with her, and The Earl's position is now advancing. The first regular auction sale of stocks and shares , was tried on Wednesday, with but indifferent success. There was very little done, as buyers seemed disinclined, to operate. The Carandini troupe have gone on a pro fessional tour to Brisbane. The reported fall in the price, of wool has caused great consternation here. ADKX.AIDE. Hughes, the late town clerk, has been committed for trial on a charge of embezzle ment. He protested his innocence on being removed from the dock. The Northern Territory Land Company refuse to assent to the terms offered by the South Australian Government, and have in timated their intention of prosecuting their claims in the colonial courts of law. A private telegram was sh...

MEAT PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 17 April 1869

meat preserving. The Galveston (Texas) Daily News pub lishes a letter from Chicago, which, after mentioning the successful results of Professor Gamgee's experiments in preserving meat, says:—"Mr J. A. Richardson, of-Corpus Christi, who happened to be in London in 11867, saw meats preserved by Professor Gam ( gee's process, and ate them ; and after send ing some to New York," he finally induced Professor Gamgee to visit this country. Accordingly, provided with four English sheep, preserved by this remarkable process, the professor landed in New York in Febru ary last, and the sheep he brought over were exhibited in the windows of the American Agriculturist, on Broadway, where thou sands upon thousands flocked to see them. A dinner was given at the Everett-house shortly after, where the mutton was served,' which everyone present declared to be the: finest they had ever eaten, and similar ex periences were had in Boston, under the pre sidency of Mr David Lyman, of Middlefield, Connecti...

SClIUCAj SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 18G9. It strikes us.that throughout the whole course of the debate upon that clause of their report in which the Complaint Committee censured the Chiej Secretary and Mr Francis, not even one speaker dwelt with anything like suffi cient force upon that point which, in our .opinion, was of more real importance than all the rest;' We refer' to the unfortunate "fact that ;Mr Higinbotham, a Minister of the Crown, was induced to act as learned counsel for his unworthy colleague, Mr Jones. The matter has, certainly been hinted at by some of those who spoke against : the excision of the clause in question, but it has always been treated of as if it were one of secondary, rather than of primary, import. It has been merely glanced at, when it should have ,been stared fully in' the face, and it has been timidly, submitted as an excuse when it should have been boldly urged as an origin and a cause. If Mr Higinbotham had sternly refused to accept a brief in the case ...
