THE LONDON TIMES ON BRIBERY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 April 1869
THE LONDON TIMES ON BRIBERY. When Mr Disraeli's Bribery Act was first introduced into Parliament its operation was limited to England, and it was a favourite argument with Mr Ayrton, Mr Bouverie, and the two or three other sticklers for what they miscalled the privileges of the House of Commons, that an experiment must be vis cious anp impolitic which could not be ex tended to Ireland. The act was, however, extended to include Ireland also, and the energy of Mr Justice Keogh is a practical refutation of the premises from which Mr Ayrton and his allies proceeded. The trial at Dublin has proved a fit complement to the investigation at Drogheda, and tiie same sound principles of electoral freedom have been applied with strict impartiality in con demnation of Liberal and Conservative. Sir Arthur Guiness, " the head of the greatest commercial firm in Ireland"—a firm dear to thirsty souls—has met the samo /ate as Mr Benjamin Whitworth, the pious President of tho United Kingdom Alliance fo...

THE CATHOLIC COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 April 1869
THE CATHOLIC COUNCIL. Tho ceremony of publicly closing the Provinoial I Counoil of Catholic Bishops of Australia was per formed on Sunday morning in Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne. The religious ceremonials which took place were very much similar to those which wore witnessed at the opening of tho Synod.

AS WE APPEAR FROM A DISTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 April 1869
AS WE APPEAR FROM A DISTANCE. We take from the Pastoral Times the fol lowing portion of a letter written by a sprightly visitor from Otngo, to his friend in New Zealand. Speaking of Echuca, he somewhat flippantly remarks :— This is about the moBt pretentious place, in the Way of an inland township, I have ever seen—its very vastness awes one. A few years ago it con sisted of an hotel and a few bark hnts—-now its extant is reckoned by miles, '1 he railway came, and the most extravagant notions were at once formed as to its future greatness. Building lotB fetched extreme prices—the town was laid out on an immense scale—houses, stores, and banks were built for that great trade whioh never came. Certainly, it has a very busy appearance during the wool season, bat that lasts only three months, and then the people for the other nine improve their.minds by abusing their ncighnurs, talking soundal, and drinking nobblers. I forgot, the lust industry when speaking of the trade of the plaoe; i...

MR JONES AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 April 1869
MR JONES AT BALLARAT. The local papers state that Mr C. E. Jones arrived at Ballarat on Friday afternoon, and that he was received at the train by a rather limited gathering-of persons, who endeavoured to make up in enthusiasm what they lacked in numbers. In the evening1 he addressed about 2500 persons in the Alfred Hall, the chair being taken by Councillor James. Mr Jones made rather a lengthy speech, in which he did all he could against Mr Francis, and promised to treat of Mr [liginbotham on Tuesday evening. He promised to go back to Parliament, if he could, and said that a special Act of Parliament required to disfran chise the borough, would not bo easily ob tained from both Houses of Parliament. He denied that he had been guilty of corrupt practices, and did not want his party to send him in again if they thought he was guilty. There was still much speculation as regards the result of the election, and many persons believed that Mr Jones would be returned. Many names bad been m...

THE RIVER NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 April 1869
THE RIVER NAVIGATION. After a good deal of careful consideration (says the Wagga Wagga Express) it has been finally determined that a River Steam Naviga tion Company shall he formed in Wagga Wagga. On Wednesday evening last the promoters of the Company met to receive the report of the depu tation that had been Bent to Eohuca, to collect informotion in referenoe to the navigation of the Murray and Lower Murrumbidgee, and to ascer tain the ooat of either building or purchasing a steamer suited to the requirements of a Wagga Wagga trade. The depntation, it appeared, had made good use of their time, and had collected, for the purposes of the projected Company, a large fund of very valuable information. They have either personally examined, or inquired into and ascertained the nature of the build, oapaoity, and capabilities of several of the boats on the Murray, and their enquiries subsequently led them to the conclusion that the steamer Yiotoria, of 60 tons, and her barge of 90 tons bur...

THE LATE FESTIVAL IN THE PARK. (To the Editor of the Riverine Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 28 April 1869
THE LA.TE FESTIVAL IN THE .PA HIT (To the Editor-of the lliverine Ilerald.) Sir,—-Tlic delicate state of Mr Hartshorn's •health'preventing' his writing, he authorises me to endorse the statement of his reasons for not joining in the children's fete on the 19th instant, contained in Mr Mitchell's letter in your last issue. He hopes to have the satis faction of giving them in detail in a few days. Although having n strong opinion in the ten dency of the style of comment which the Riverine Herald has seen fit to adopt on this gathering; of the children for a pleasant holi day, I refrain from expressing it, merely re marking, that under its former management no attempt to sow the seed of sectarian hate was ever made in its columns. Nor did its editor ever endeavour—nor would he, as all who knew him know—to stigmatise a respectable citizen as disloyal. Your obedient servant, P. LANDY. Echuca, 27th April, 1869. [We fully concur with Mr Landy when he says that under its former management t...
