THE PURLOINED LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 4 July 1874
THE PURLOINED LETTER. &nbsp; &nbsp; At Paris, just after dark, one gusty evening in the Automn of 18—, I was enjoying the two- fold luxury of meditation and a meerschaum, in company with my friend C. Auguste Dupin, in his little back library, or book-closet, au troisiême, No. 33, Rue Dunt, Faubourg St Germain. For an hour, at least, we had maintained a profound silence, when the door of our apartment was thrown open, and admitted our old acquaintance, Monsieur G—, the prefect of the Parisian police. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We gave him a hearty welcome. The perfect sat down, and shortly disclosed a most perplexing case, in which his professional services had been ia requisition. His story was this. ' I have re- ceived information that a certain document, of the last importance, has been purloined from the royal apartments. The individual who purloined it is k...

THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
THE LAND. (From the Sydney Mail.) The Riverina Grazier contains a long letter from Mr. Edward D. Ogilvie, who appears as a thorough believer in, and a powerful advocate of, inocula- tion for pleuro-pneumonia. Being asked to ex- press his views on the subject, he has done so in clear terms ; but at too great length for our columns. He is of opinion that the chances of recovery for a diseased beast are improved by subjecting the animal to inoculation, and that uninfected cattle, after undergoing that opera- tion, may be regarded as almost certainly insured against attack, at least for some years. Nor is this a theoretical conclusion, but the conviction of a man who has had to grapple with the disease. Experience leaves him in no doubt about the matter. There is one part of this letter which is of sin- gular importance at the present juncture when much misunderstanding prevails about the supply of lymph. He discovered during his essay that the liquid or water secreted in large quantiti...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
The retrospect of the past session of the Par- liament of New South Wales offers little ground for congratulation to colonists who value political progress. The causes which have compelled a powerful Government, led by such a man as Mr. Parkes, and with an imposing majority in the Assembly, at the end of a session of unprecedented length, to sacrifice their principal measures and prorogue Parliament in hopeless confusion, are worth investigation. For all aggressive purposes, the powers of the Opposition have been extremely limited and ineffective. The prestige of the Ministry has never been en- dangered by the scurrilous harangues of Mr. Bnchanan, the disjointed utterances of Mr. John Robertson, the ceaseless byper-criticism of Mr. Forster, or the impetuous sallies of the light brigade, Mr. Garrett and Captain Onslow. The majority which was always at the command of the Minister showed distinctly the feeling of the Honse and country that, nnder present circumstances, no other Go vern...

THE BIENNIAL MASSACRE OF DOGS AT SINGAPORE. —The Straits Times thus records a slaughter of &nbsp; " man's friend and companion : "—" At yester- &nbsp; &nbsp; midnight tho biennial massacre of pariah dogs terminated. Animals which have homes and owners of their own can now put their noses out of doors and follow them without running the risk of having their brains knocked out, and owners need no longer be annoyed and have their sleep murdered by the howling of dogs who are not accustomed to be imprisoned, and make known their discontent by plaintive and discordant wailing."

Thomas Woodbridge.—Plaintiff &nbsp; &nbsp; sued to recover damages for trespass by defen- dant's sheep on a selection and some pre-emptive leases. Mr. Donovan for plaintiff.

LATEST INTELLIGENCE. REUTER'S TELEGRAMS TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS. LONDON—JULY 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 11 July 1874
LATEST INTELLIGENCE. REUTER'S TELEGRAMS TO AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED PRESS. LONDON—JULY 2. The Right Hon. B. Disraeli has addressed the House of Commons on the subject of the reso- lutions introduced by Mr. Isaac Butt in favour of the restoration of the Irish Parliament. He has demonstrated the impossibility of carrying out the system of "' Home Rule " in Ireland. The O'Donoghue and Mr. Robert Lowe have also opposed Mr. Butt's motion. The Public Education Bill introduced into the House of Commons by Mr. Colman Dixon has been rejected. Its object was to provide for the general establishment of School Boards through- out the Kingdom, and to make attendance com- pulsory. The bill was defeated on a division of 320 to 156. Some uneasiness is felt concerning the fate of the Atlantic cable steamer Faraday. She was reported as having been lost, but the report has been contradicted. The Ironmasters of South Wales have given notice of a further reduction of wages. JULY 4. The commission appointed...

Original Correspondence. (To the Editor of the Burrowa News.) SIR,—The following is a copy of a letter, dated &nbsp; &nbsp; Palmer River, May 17th, 1874, written by a young man named Henry Keys, well known in this dis- trict ; and as complete reliance can be placed on the veracity of the writer, I forward it to you for publication, as it may be of interest to some of your readers. I am, Sir, yours respectfully, H. O'LEARY. Reid's Flat, July 6th, 1874. Palmer River, May 17th, 1874. Dear Friend,—We arrived here a few days &nbsp; &nbsp; ago, having travelled something over two thou- sand miles, although we came as straight as we possibly could. It is a very miserable-looking place. There is a great rush of people here ; but most of them go back—those that have the &nbsp; &nbsp; means. The few hundreds that are here are only making " tucker "—about an ounce per week. &nbsp; &nbsp; Rations are still very dear, flour being 1s...
