The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, OCTOBER 5, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 October 1877

.AND SWAN IHILL GAZETTJ. PUBISilED WEEKLY.. -KERANG, OCTOBER 5; 1877. RURAL ECONOMY.. Now that the subject ofxagri'cul ture is prominently before the pub lic, and has recently occupied, and still occupies, a largeshare of public attention, it is well to direct ateten tion to an aspiect: of :tle iquestion which is intimately associated with successful husbandry. We refer to that of water supply, both for home consumption and domestic purposes, as well as for irrigation when and where necessary and practicable. Those who cultivate the soil are sub ject to other drawbacks besides ig norance of skilled agriculture and scientific farming;: They are liable to serious delays, losses, and checks, from parasitical insects, and stunted or ruined crops, from drought. It is not well for farmers, any more than other business people, to "trust in Providence," upon the happy-go lucky hypothesis that "all will go well." For though it is well to trust in Providence, it is well also to re 'member tha...

A FLAGRANT MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 October 1877

A FLA.GRAINT 3MSCAltRIAGE OF .1 USTICE. Nothing shocks a British speaking com mnunity no much as the idea that justice can not be obtainedinn our courta of law. We have been so accustomed to have our laws so fairly and impartially administered, that our courts of justice are looked upon with respect and confidence byall classes in the land. This is exemplified by the frequent appeals that are made to them. Men who cannot settle their own differences, at once apply to a court of law, knowing that what ever may he the merits or demerits of their case, it will be decided impartially. This fact engenders a feeling of safety and se curity throighout the community. -It is a Stimne-honoured custom that when any actual doubt exists in the minds of those' adjudi eating upon any case, to give the benefit of that doubt to the person accused.' Doubts may arise from various causes; one is when the evidence tendered is not conclusive ; another when the evidence is contradictory. In the first isls...

PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 October 1877

I 1'ARLIA 3\IENT. The Le slative Comicil has at last finally disposed of the Land Tax Bill. M1r Cuth bert moved the second reading of the bill, and in doing so answered several inquiries that had been addressed to him by members I of the IIouse. 3r Fitzgerald was desirous of knowing whether the Postmaster-Gene ral had obtained certain information iespect ing the area of land that would be brought i under the operition of the tax, and the number of individuals who would be affected by it. Thie hIouse wis apprised of all the information which the oflicers of the Lands Department had been able to obtain on the sibject. Mr Fitzgerald, however, did not seem satisfied with this information,and felt, it his duty to "call the attention of the House to the unsatisfactory nature of the information supplied." Mr Sargood was the' lirst to take up the discussion on Thursday night week hast, and his principal 'argument appeared to' be that it would be expedient for the house to accept the measure...

'TILE STAN IIILL "CEMETERY. (TO TIHE EDITOR OF THE ICERANG TINES.) .,.Sms-Had you the opportunity to in spect the Swan Hill Cemetery, you wouild doubtless agree with me that another bury ing ground in such a discreditable and ne glected condition is not to be found in-Vic tori. - Within the last two years the fence surrounding it has been allowed to decay, cobisequently horses, cattle,sheep, aind goat,s, are occasionally found grazing in it. Al-: thoiighlsome very handsome and expensive headstones havebeen erected, and the graves .planted with.shrubs -and tiowers, whatever serves for fodder for animals has been cropped. .To see to its better managrement i lunderstaid trustees were elected a few months ago ;.but up to' the preselit they have made no outward visible sign of their existence.

THE TRAGOWEL P R CASE. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE KERANG TIMES) [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 5 October 1877

THE TRAGOWEL P R CASE. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE KERANG TIMES) Sir - Will you allow me a small space in your valuable journal to make a few re marks on the decision of the land board with regard to the block of 540 acres north of the Tragowel pre-emptive right. There were seven applications lodged,but only six were represented. Three of the appli-   cants were married men, with large families any of whom would be glad to have got 100 acres even to make a home for himself and family. The board in giving their decision admitted they were going out of their usual course in recommending the applications of single people when there were married applicants, but the land was so valuable they did not like to cut it up be- tween two married men, so they gave it to a young lady and her brother - both being single. I am quite surprised that in this case,where there were so many married men with families that the board could arrive at such a decision. Perhaps it would be better if the ...
