DROWNED IN THE MU[?] [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 29 March 1878
DROWNED IN THE MURRAY A rumour reached Kerang on *** day morning last that a woman had been drowned in the Murray. The rumour proved true, the victim being a married woman named Mary Ash- win, who resided with her husband upon their selection on Pugga*** Island, known in Victoria as Campbell's Island. Whether the death was caused by accident or design there is [some?] doubt; surrounding circumstances *** to the lattter, though it is quite possible it might have been an accident. The unfortunate woman was first missed Saturday afternoon, about half [past?] four; her son, who resides on a selec- tion near Kerang, called at the house and not finding his mother at home concluded she had gone somewhere with his father. About half-an-hour afterwards, the husband, who had been away since morning, returned, and being told deceased was not to be*** about, in company with his son, com- menced an immediate search, in which they were assisted by two men work- ing upon the selection. The search ...
THE EASTERN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878
THE EASTERN QUESTION. Since our last the further progress of the war has been arrested, and the topic of the day is the terms of peace laid down by Russia. On 31st January an armistice was duly arranged and signed, and from that date a cessation of hostilities between the belligerents was agreed to. Up to thispoint the career of the Russian army had been one uninterrupted success after the capture of Plerna and the surrender of Osman Pasha, who still remains a prisoner in the hands of the Russians. After some severe fighting, Adrianople was surrendered to the Russians after. Sulieman Pasha's army had received a severe mauling from the troops of General Gourko. The Turks then re treated into the fastness of the Rhodope Mountains to await the approach of new foes. In this battle it is reported that 4000 Turks were killed, 3600 were taken priso ners, and about 100 pieces of cannon, with a considerable store of ammunition, were captured as well. Sulieman Pasha himself escaped with about...
A LIBERAL PEER ON THE CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878
A. LIBERAL PEER ON THE CRISIS. Lord Fitzhardinge, head of the Liberal house of Berkeley, speaking at a licensed victualler's banquet at Bristol the other night, referred to the political situation. When the Russians crossed the Danube he shbuld have liked to have seen the British fleet ordered to Constantinople, and 40,000 men sent to the lines of Gallipoli. (Cheers) If men had been wanted he would have gone himself. (Great cheering.) He thought it a shame to desert an oldally like Turkey, and he felt it was a hard case. Now, how ever we must be cautious. The Russians established themselves in the immediate neighbourhood of Constantinople, and it would be a very grave question how that city could be defended. Ifwe had to fight we must take off ourcoats and fight at once. (Cheers.) That was thesimplest and hleapest remedy=-(cheers) and in his f fumble opinion would lead to the best re sults. '(Cheers.) If it turned oilt that we s nust fight, he hoped that as Englishmen I eey would no...
THE RUSSIAN TORPEDO FLOTILLA. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878
TIHE RUSSIAN TORPEDO FLOTILLA. A. Cronstadt correspondent writes to London, under date 22nd Jan. as follows : -" The Russian naval force intended to act in the sea of Marmora has been taken from the brigade on the Danube, and is proceeding toward the scenes of action by the Schipka route. The torpedoes are being taken via Sofia, together, rumor says, with several cutters from Sistova, but this latter intelligence I cannot vouch for the accuracy of. My own impression is, that the transport of small steamboats would be a work of too great difficulty, unless in deed their conveyance across the Balkans could be assured of, in which case they could steam up the Yantra, or if the river be frozen over be conveyed on sledges on the ice, to the base of the mountains, and on the other side they could easily steam down the river Tunja to within the distance of Iodosto. This would be a work of immense difliculty, but in the last few weeks the Russians have overcome such insuperable obstacles in...

T" CE COHUNA-POST-OFFICE. SNumerous complaints have reached this office of delay ahd non:delivery of newspapers" which -pass througli the Cohuna postoflice.

LOVE AND MISCHIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878
LOVE AND 1LiSOllIE. One sunny day Love chose to stray - Adown a rosy path forfidden, Where Mischief deep hi am:,ush lay, And watched his snare'neathflowers hid den. Love, tumbling in, began to shout ForMischiefs aid, lest he should smother: "You little demon, let me out, Or I'll report you to my mother." SaidMischief, "I'll not set you free Unless you share your power with me, And give of every heart you gain One half to joy and half to pain." Love struggled, but in vain, alas ! He was not born to prove a martyr, And, sad to tell! it came to pass, He gaveit to the little Tartar. Love flew to Venus in a pet, And cried, when he hud told his story : " Oh, Queen of Beauty, never let That little imp wear half my glory.". The goddess, with a look sedate, Reolied, "I cannot alter fate ; But you shall conquer still, my boy, I'll make Love's pain more sweet than joy. Z.Y.

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 April 1878
AGRICULTURAL. From all directions we hear of the far mers being very busy ploughing 'in the Bendigo district, and preparing the ground for sowing early wheatcrops. Agriculturists especially in all the newly settled districts should, as the Age says, start wheat sowing without delay. The season so far bears a similarity to that of the corresponding period of last year, and it will be remem bered that the wheat crops which missed the early rains are those which now 'ap pear among the low averages. A check, it may be observed, has taken place in the quantity of wheat and flour received in the metropolis during the past week, and there has been a stiffening in prices, which is likely to increase. Bad roads, and farmers being busy with ploughing and sowing, will decrease the receipts, while stocks will be rapidly lightened by the considerable ex port trade going on, which now materially co-operates with the daily consumption to clear out supplies. The Geelong Advertiser states that the w...
