WATERHOLE FLAT RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 January 1875
WATERHOLE FLAT RACES. We paid a visit to Waterhoje Flat on Tuesday last (Anniversary Day), and were much surprised to see tbe large number of persons who had assembled to witness or take part in the races arranged for that day. The attendance somewhat exceeded 200 ; and although the day was exceed ingly not and oppressive, making frequent visits to Host O'Leary's booth a matter of absolute necessity, yet the meeting passed off in a quiet and orderly manner, without the slightest row or disturbance. Mr. F. Poplin discharged tbe duties of Judge ; Mr. J. Hardyuian wielded the flag as starter ; and Mr. J. J. Coughlan, who acted as Secretary, was indefatigable in his efforts to make the meeting a success. We append the result of the several events : — First Eace.

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 January 1875
The recurrence during the past week of the Anniversary of the Colony, invites both a retrospective glance at our progress, and some anticipation of our future development. That a handful of British colonists should iu such a short time spread themselves over more than a million square miles of territory, decimate if not utterly destroy its aboriginal inhabitants, and accumulate enormous wealth, in a climate as healthy and delightful as it is enervating, speaks quite as much for the indomitable energy of their race, as for the natural resources of the country which could exhibit such satisfactory results. A great deal of importance may be fairly attributed to the effect of the gold discoveries —to the extraordinary success which has at tended the colonists in their elaborate search for%iie rich deposits of the precious metal, which lie hidden throughout the Eastern colonies of New Holland, and to the great influx of enterprising population which mi grated hither, eager to share the s...
A VISIT TO NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 January 1875
A VISIT TO NORFOLK ISLAND. The Special Correspondent of the Melbourne Argue writes as follows : — On the occasion of Sir Hercules Robinson's recent visit to Fiji in H.M.S. Pearl, he called at Norfolk Island to transact some official business. H.M.S. Dido, on her way up to Sydney with (Jacobau, also made a brief stay at the island, and it was then that I had an opportunity of seeing the two settlements there — that of the Pitcairn Islanders and the Melanesian Mission. It may fairly be presumed that the romantic history of the descendants of the mutineers of the 'Bounty' is familiar to the public; but it will possibly not be wearisome to reproduce the leading facts in a brief form. The Bounty was a ship of war, commissioned to convey bread-fruit trees from Tahiti to the West Indies. Her cap tain, William Bligh, though a skilful seaman and a brave man, was an unendurable tyrant. On the 28j.li April, 1789, when the vessel was a few days' sail from Tahiti, on her way to the West Indies, ...

CRICKET-MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 January 1875
CRICKET-MATCH. A match — Town v. Country — was played on the Reserve in Burrowa on Saturday last. Play did not commence until a late hour in the afternoon ; and consequently the match could not be com pleted. The strength of the country was fully represented ; but the Town team was weakened by tbe unavoidable absence of several prominent cricketers, which rendered their chance of securing a victory almost a hopeless one. The bowling and fielding of the Country team was very good ; but the fielding of the Town representatives was unmistakably inuffish. We subjoin the scores : — The Country Team. A.

BURROWA COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. (Before W. J. B. Wotton, Esq.) Sheep—stealing. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 January 1875
BURROWA COURT OF PETTY SESSIONS. (Before W. J. E. Wptton, Esq.) Sheep-stealing. Regina v. Emma Petty. Mr. Donovan for the prosecution.. ? Sergeant Hitch deposed : In virtue of a warrant which I now produce I arrested the prisoner yes terday morning, at Hovell'fi Greek, on a charge of felonionely stealing a sheep of tbe value of 8s., the property of Michael Cantwell, of Forest Sta tion ; I read the warrant to her, and she replied, ' Oh, but where's the sheep, though ; ' I told' her I did not know, and she said ' it is very strange ;' I afterwards heard her say to her father that sue was at tfie sheep-yard on that evening for a few^ minutes ; I brought her to Burrowa, and confined her in the lock-up ; I pray for a remand for the production of evidence. By the prisoner : You also stated that Tuckwell went down to the sheep-yard about some lambB ; I also heard you say that your sister «nd a little boy were at the yard, but heard nothing about lambs being tied up ; I heard your father re...
BARTON V. MUIR.—PRIVY COUNCIL APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 30 January 1875
BARTON V. MUIB.— PRIVY COUNCIL APPEAL. Judgment of the Lords of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council on the appeal of Barton v. Muir from New South Wales, delivered 14th No vember, 1874. Present : Sir James W. Colviile, Sir Barnes Peacock, Sir John Stuart, Sir Montague Smith, and Sir Robert P. Collier. The view of this case taken by the majority of the Judges seems not reconcilable with Ilia established princi ples of equity. It is a view founded on what appears to be rather a misapprehension of the authorities which they cite as applicable to the case. Properly understood, the authorities estab lish the principle that, to deprive the appellant of his right to relief in equity, there must be such a degree of illegality in the transaction as is free from all doubt. It is lightly admitted that tbe transaction is not immoral or against public policy. In the beginning of his judgment, tbe Chief Justice says it is against public policy, but that seems an accidental inaccuracy. It ...

AGRICULTURAL EXHIBITIONS; THEIR CHARACTER AND INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 6 February 1875
AGRICULTURAL EXHIBITIONS; THEIR CHARACTER AND INFLUENCE. The following extracts are from a lecture de livered before the members of the Croydon Farmers' Club on June 11, 1874, by Mr. Thomas Wilson Reid, manager of the Sportsman, and formerly of the North British Agriculturist : — Over-feeding. I could go on accumulating instances of the rough-and-ready, not to say disgraceful, manner in which judges come to conclusions, and tbe dodges resorted to by exhibitors to get a prize ; but they are somewhat out of my way. I now proceed to what more directly concerns my present subject. Of fat stock shows I have hot time to say much. In an article, entitled ' Fat-stock Shows,' I contributed a few years ago to the Pall Mall Gazette. I endeavoured to prove the tre mendous expense and the utter uselessness of fat feeding ; but seeing that fat shows prove such a great source of.attraction to (he puMic, I shall iu the meantime leave thorn alone. But I contend that over-feeding threatens to ruin ou...
