A THRILLING STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 14 August 1877

A THRILLING STORY. Stiiolling with 'my German friend through the lovely cemetery of Munich, wo paused, to rest on a bench in the fragrant shade of a blossoming linden. Around us the sculp tured monuments gleamed purely against the living green of turf and foliage, while rare and lovely flowers and shrubs made this ' God s acre' iHore'resembling a garden of pleasure than a city of the dead. Directly faeiner us nvtmidprl o vista, an arch of interlacing branches, at the ; farther end of which stood a small stone house surrounded by an iron railing, and ! half covered with ivy. What is that building?' I inquired of ' my friend. j ^ ' That is tho dead-house, . where, accord mg to a law of Munich and some other of I our German cities, the bodies of newIV dead 1 are kept for three, days before they are al- I lowed to be interred.

W^Ehave not liitherto had occasion to criti cise the proceedings in our local court; arid -at any time we are not anxious to ?run amuck with either those who sit in judgement th6re or the diligent stai| of constabulary whose duty it is to enforce the law amongst this'people. We believe it to be the duty of the press to give what ever assistance it can to secure . obedience to the law, rather than to seek for cause to criticise and ridicule (as many are'tqo eager to do) our judicial proceedings. But the result of the prosecutions by the sh^ep-inspector' for this district, instituted in otir local court on Friday last, was of su'ch. an unwarrantable and outrageous character as to call forth the indignation, not alone of those who were the victimised bn the occasion, but of every lover of fair , play and good citizenship.

THE SACRED STANDARD OF THE THE PROPHET. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 14 August 1877

THE SACRED STANDARD OF THE THE PROPHET. The cable intelligence of the progress of tho Russo-Turkish war is sufficiently omenous to cause anxiety to we antipodeans. Matters have now reached such a pitch that the war must either speedily come to an end or drajg into it other nations, which would make it more terrible than it already is. The Em peror Alexander has himself proceeded to the battle-field to inspire awe with his superstitious subjects in the faith and . stir up the patriotism of his soldiers; and has naturally enough been heartily welcomed by the persecuted Bulgarians as their great de liverer. But the. effect - of the Emperor's presence on the battle-field will be as nought compared with that caused by the unfurling of that sacred relic of Mahomet known as the Standard of the Prophet, the sight of which will provoke in the breast of the barbarous Mussulman the most fiendish thirst for the blood of the christian. The following quotation from the manifesto of the Prophet ?w...

The condition that a- selector must expend £l per acre on his selection , ds^biu'densome, and of 110 advantage isither to himself or the country. Secondly. ' From practical experience we maintain that the land does not, under any . circumstances or reasons, return a fair interest on the capital thus compul sorily and often unnecessarily expended upon it, merely to comply with the law. ' Thirdly. When a man selects a por tion of land, he should fairly be trusted to effect such improvements as will pay him' best, and suit the enterprise in which he may be engaged, either agricultural or pastoral. - Fourthly. All sums of money, labour, , and time expended by the selector in ? making so-called improvements, which ? are riot ...

RAILWAYS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 14 August 1877

RAILWAYS OF NEW SOUTH 'WALES. We have thankfully to acknowledge receipt of an elaborate report on the construction and working of our railways during 1876, compiled by John Rae, A.M., Commissioner for Railways. The volume contains 106 pages, foolscap folio ; besides a coloured sketch-map of the colony, in which are traced the actual and proposed lines north, south, and w£st. and the short line from Deniliquin to Moama (the only private line in the colony), which was opened for traffic some twelve months ago ; and following the map are 28 lithograph diagram-sections of the three great lines, showing the dis tances, altitudes, and features of the country tiaversed, and the engineering difficulties which have had to be surmounted in their construction. At the close of 1875, the re port shows, the total length of railway was 437 miles ; and that during the year em braced by the report some 72 miles were added,— making tho total open for traffic 509 miles : of this the greater progress h...

MURRUMBURRAH. August 11. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 14 August 1877

MURRUMBURRAH. August 11. Singe my last I am unable to report but very slight improvement 111 the pasturage of this district. This, I believe, arises from the prevalence of heavy frosts each night. Of course the principle topic is tho probability of our being in a similar position to that of last year, at the j-resent period of winter. The ground now requires a deal of moisten ing to bring forward the crops sown and also to produce feed for sheep and cattle. Hay-' ing an opportunity to see much of stock I may state their condition to be bad, in or dinary seasons they would be much , better. About sixty of tho Lincoln breed of sheep arrived in our town a few days since, con signed to one of the station-holders near this place, and appeared in first-class condi tion, which it is hoped they will maintain. I think the experience of the past two years will operate as a warning; against the over stocking of runs, as also lead to the extension of introducing quality rather than quantity of ...
