SCRUB LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 25 August 1866
SCRUB LANDS. The utilization of scrub lands is a qiiestion affecting a far wider extent of country than that to which those lands are confined. If the thousands of square miles of scrub which is how not merely useless and unproductive but a positive hindrance to the extension of cultivation, and a barrier to the intercom munication of the districts it separates, could be ^brouaht into profitable occupation, the beneficial results would flow through every channel of industry in the colony. Such a question intist not therefore be regarded from a merely local stand point. It ha3 a thoroughly national importance, and in whatever way it is dealt with all classes of the community must be affeeted by. the issue. ? ? JJow that public attention has been pointedly directed to the subject, it is to be hoped the interest it has excited will not be allowed to flag- The people of the Bremer district have the credit of being the first to urge the neces sity for some special legislation in ihe matt...

STRATrlALBYN SOUTH-EASTERN RIFLE ASSOCIATION The annual matches of this popular society com menced at Stratha.'byn on Wednesday, and were con tinued on Thursdny and Friday.

It may perhaps not be out of place to throw out a ~ . few suggestions as to the working of 'the line when, completed, that those in power may well mature their plans while the work is being proceeded with, that when completed it may prove to be a real success. To ensure this there will require 'to be a thorough' organised system in the working of the line! Sidings will have to he constructed from one end of it to the other, at not more at an average than one mile apart (which I am given to understand are provided for}, Mich as the one on the present tramway at Midd'eton, where the trucks can go r...
