JOTTINGS FROM GOULBURN. Thursday, August 16. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 August 1877

JOTTINGS FROM GOULBURN. : By Cousin Will. . Thursday, August 16.J We have been favoured with more windy weather ; and I really believe that if a stranger had been in Gtoulburn during the week in search of a permanent residence, the winds and the dust would have gone a long' way to prevent him carrying out his idea. But still I must say that although Goulburn is visited with wind almost the whole ye'ar round, yet the past week has been somewhat exceptional. However, beyond the discom-r liuurt) ujl me uusti, peujjio uo jlluu soboji io iiuvt) sustained any. material injury. To tell you the truth, the weather has been of an ex hilarating nature ; and I believe it has also been healthy, for deaths of late have been very rare. We have not had rain for, some time, and its continued absence is begin ning, to cause general alarm, for the farmers require it just now to bring on the wheat crops, &c. Beautifully clear days and nights are now the order. . , . The skating club in connexio...

OPENING OF THE RAILWAY TO COOTAMUNDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 August 1877

OPENING OF THE EAILWAY TO COOTAMUNDRA. On Thursday afternoon last, pursuant to announcement, the public meeting -was held to consider what steps should be taken to inaugurate the advent of the ' iron horse' to this district. There was a good attend ance, and commendable interest taken in the proceedings — the meeting being held in the unoccupied - but commodious premises next London House. The Vigilance Com mittee had initiated the movement by send ing post-cards to a, large number of residents them to attend the meeting and inviting their co-operation in the opening demonstration ; believing it would be more satisfactory to have the. affair authorised by a public meet ing of the inhabitants and secure more gene ral interest in it, than would be the case if it. were wholly carried on by themselves: and it is encouraging to find that their efforts have been well seconded by the public. The object of the meeting being .;merely to decide what form the demonstration (if any) should assu...

ON THINGS IN GENERAL AND THE MURRUMBURRAH POST-OFFICE IN PARTICULAR. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 21 August 1877

ON THINGS IN GENERAL AND THE MURRUMBURRAH POST-OFFICE IN PARTICULAR. (to the editor.) Sir, — 'Procrastination's the soul of business.'* Such is the beautiful maxim of the New South Wales Government ; and so religiously is it observed that even the never-to-be-bamboozled M'Elhone would hesitate before accusing them of any malfeasance in this respect. The spirit of procrastination is everywhere the pre siding genius. With his confederates, I?,ed Tape and Sealing Wax, he is pre sent at the birth of everv new Govern ment, accompanies the ministers peace fully through life, and abandons them not at the hour of (official) death. His blighting influence is universal, making itself dreaded and felt on every highway, over every creek, and in every town of the colony. A bridge is contemplated, a new public office is urgently needed, roads have to be repaired, railway build ings must 4-e erected. Everybody ac knowledges the pressing nature of the works. Parliament votes the money, and all goes...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Sheahan v. Sheep-farmers. — A letter ap peared in the Gundagai Times of Saturday, sigped ' J. H. Sheahan, Inspector of Stock',' being a laboured attempt at a reply to our comments upon the late prosecutions. Mr. Sheahan seems to be very much chafed at our article, and makes a savage effort to i prove something villainous on our part. We might be content to remain quietly under a charge of ignorance, levelled, at us by such a great light as the author of the letter in question appears to be ; but he charges us with ' ' sdmething worse than ignorance,' and if we trouble him again he ; may be gracious enough to explain what this awful 'something' is. Our sheepish friend will, therefore, be further dealt with in our next issue. Pain Paint. — We accidentally omitted from our last issue any mention of the visit to our town of Mr. C. E.

We have, already published particulars of the architectural design and dimensions of the new church, and these need-not be repeated here.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 28 August 1877

Perhaps there is no subject that en grosses the public mind so much at the present as the Rtisso-Turkish war; nor indeed is this much to be wondered at when we consider that Britain has a direct interest in the issue, insomuch as, if the Muscovite be victorious and Stam boul fall into his hands, English interests in the East must of necessity be placed in a state of jeopardy. The great Napoleon — the man without a model and without ? a shadow — prophetically warned the . other European nations against the allowance of such an aggrandisement of territory on the part of Russia ; for, with that forecast which so pre-eminently dis tinguished him, he perceived that it was not extent of dominion alone that was sought after, but position, and conse quently power when Russian interests in the Black Sea might be threatened, and also for the making more easy a descent on India, should it be desired to put such a scheme into execution. The pretext for the present disastrous war was the ameli o...
