1 ` AtD Swar: HILL GAZETTE. P-BnLIHED WEEKLY. KEKANG, APRIL 12, t878. THE BANKS: AND THE FREE SELECTIONS. Having treated in our la-t issue of the injuries inflicted upon selectors and the country, by the usurious interest charged by bank agentsupon accom,so, dations alforded to selectors, we now advert to the remedy proposed in the establishment of a National Bank o issue. It appears to us, that the exis tent'banking system, is conducive to a .pernicious perpetuation of the mono poly of lard and wealth in the hands of the few, and discouraging to the agricultural, and manufacturing enter prise, and to the operative 'ma nual ind Istry of the masses of the p.ople. " Constituting itself the arbi ter of the commercial weal of the country, it bears upon the medium of the trade with a despotism so fearful that it involves thousands in ruin, that it may secure the spoil." That the effect of this lfave been obstructive to our national progress, and th'tt it tends to the impoverishment of th...

The brains had oozed out for about two yards along the line, and about 200 yards from the body, on the line, witness found the top of the skull, having evidently been carried by the wheels of the train which had passed in that direction.

A NAPOLEONIC PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 April 1878

S A NAPOLEONIC PROPHECY. The First Napoleon, according to O'Meara, in his "Voice from St. Helena," wrote thus:--In the course of a few years aRussia will have Constanitinople, the great est part of Turkey, and all Greece. This I hold to be as certain as if it had already taken place. Almost all the cajoling and flattering whichl Alexander practised to- cards me, was to gain my consent to effect this object. I would not consent, seeing that the equilibrium of Europe would be destroyed. In the natural course of things, in a few years, Turkey must fall to Russia. The greatest part of her populations are Greeks, who, you might say, are Russians. I The Powers it would injure, and who would - oppose it, are England, France,, Prussia, and Austria. It woulld be very easy for Russia to engage Austria's assistance by t giving her Servia and other provinces bor t dering upon the Austrian dominions which - extend towards Constantinople. The only hypothesis that France and England may 1 ever be ...

DRAINAGE AND WATER CONSERVATION COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 April 1878

DIRAINAGE AND WATElI CONSERSA' ION C0a5IOUO CATED. Da:nage is a malter of great importance to the fasmer, and slhould at the outset occupy such of his attntion. Our best whecat-grow. ong lands are level, or noar'y so, and gives little opportunity to the surface water to run aIf. It has, however, another means of escap ing-that of soakage. About fifteen or twenty feet below the surface there is a sandy d;ifs. Besides the porosity of the soil, there are numerous fissures, crabholes, &e , through which the surface water forces its way to this underlying drift. The land in its natural state is well drained, but when the farmer tills his land, ihe makes a sort of a tank to hold the water in by his ploughing, six to right inches deep, and so continues for two or three years: TIhe action of working each year in succession puddles up the outlet for the water, and at tast it becomes a stagnant pool to brepd for his crop a pestilence and disease. The iirst atumn rain gives the grain a...

FEEDING CATTLE SYSTEMATICALLY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 April 1878

FEEDING GATTLE SYSTEM.ATI CALLY. A correspondent of the Rural Sunt gives his experience in feeding cattle as follows: "If they are sometimes stuffed and others starved, they will go through the process of ' eating off'their heads.' In feeding meal I always want it ground fine, as my experi ence is that three bushels of line meal is equal to four ground coarse, though an overfeed of fine meal will scour worse than the coarse. This the feeder must guard against. Always give each a box by him self, so yon know he eats what you give him, and always accustom them to being tied up from the calves; if this is not contenient when you begin to feed, tie them up at night and let them run loosein the lot of a day. Keep them well bedded, and never allow a hog in their stall, oryou will loose much of the manure they make, and that with me is a big item. W?hen your stalls begin to get i too hot to be healthy, clean out and haul direct to where your may want to use the manure. In commnencing to fe...

A STATUE TAKEN INTO CU[?]TODY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 12 April 1878

A STATUE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. - A novel occurrence, at Preston, is thus re corded in a Liverpool paper; - A police nan on duty in Ashton street, on the western outskirts of Preston, saw what he thought was a man clinging to a lamp post for support. Thinking he was some belated Bacchanalian, he went up to him with the question, "Now, young man.   in't it time you were at home ?" As the officer received no answer, he struck at him and knocked him down. Still the object of his attentions made no sign, and   he then discovered he had been interrog- ating statue. It was one of a number of saints' effigies of wood that had been removed from the interior of St Walburge's church not far distant, and placed in a porch behind the sacred edifice while some al- terations were in progress, and had been carried thence by some mischevious spirit to the place where the policeman found it. The officer took it to the police station, placed it on the ground outside, and then w...

THE GAME OF TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 19 April 1878

THE GAME OF TENNIS. In Ireland this game is very popular, and mdre so perhaps in the North, than in the South of Ireland, -whore football is the ex- d hilarating and rough pastime fostered, 1 usually on Sunday afternoon, when a good grass field or paddock is selected, and where 1 great pride is taken in barking an opponent's a skin. IIaudball in the North of Ireland is favored by all classes, high and low peasantry and mechanics, lawyers and doc tors, and is more popular than cricket, which is a comparatively recent impoita tion. Nearly all the soldiers' barracks have h ball courts; either enclosed on the sides or having wings to restrain the ball ; and the soldiers take a deep isnterest in this amuse ment. ltmay not be generally known that there is a very excellent ball court in Sand hurst, having been built by Mr P. , McGrath, at the rear of his IIi bernia hotel, in Biridge street, and here we might say that M3r M'Grath is an ex cellent player, ready and willing at all times to gi...
