POLICE COURTS. GUNDAGAI. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH.—Before the Police Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 19 September 1868

POLICE COURTS. GUNDAGAI. Monday, September 14th.— Before the : Police Magistrate; -.. -. ? , : Charles Botoke was summoned for caus ing a nuisance by boiling fat in his yard on the 10th ins't. and on other occasions. The evidence of Mr. -M. Russell showed that on the evening of the 10th inst., when he was about to sit down - to tea at Mr. J. ?Phillips' hotel, his nostrils were assailed by a powerful and offensive stench, and that although he closed the doors and windows the aforesaid smell still found its way into the room. It resembled the odour coming from a tallow manufactory, and proceeded apparently from defendant's premises at the corner of Sheridan-street. Defendant said- since he had been warned by Sergeant M'Cook he had never boiled tallow in his yard. He had been from home, but he believed his wife had been making some candles in the kitchen on Thursday night, and the fat boiled over into the fire. . His worship said the present proceedings hod been taken at his instance. ...

A special ease' from' 'the Mudgee~ Quarter Seasons has been decided in the Supreme Court, Sydney. One M'Quire, agent -of Mr. Ov. Rouse, was driving fifty-six head of cattle that' had been trespassing on the Cullerunna run to the pound when they were rescued by Charles Col well, who was convicted of a breach of the Impounding Act before Mr. District Judge Carey, and sentenced to pay a fine of £20 and to be imprisoned until it was paid. The points reserved were— First, whether this was an indictable offence : secondly, whether ' the Court of Quarter Sessions was a conrt of competent jurisdiction to adjudicate in such a case. . Their honors held that this was not an indictable offence, and directed the ctravic ction to be quashed. A great blast in the Lithgow valley, on the 1 Great Western Hallway, is to take place on the 12th instant, (to-day.) Some time since a tunnel was excavated through one of the . mountains rising from Lithgow valley, but since its completion a very extensive fi...

HINTS FROM THE TABLE. WHAT AN EPICURE EATS AND DRINKS IN HIS LIFETIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Times and Tumut, Adelong and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 19 September 1868

HINTS FROM THE TABLE. WHAT AN EPIOOEE BATS AND DBINKS IK HIS LIFETIME. It will rather take the reader by surprise to be told, that in a life of 65 years' duration, with a moderate daily allowance of mutton, for instance, he will have consumed a flock of 350 sheep ; and that altogether, for dinner alone, adding to his mutton a reasonable allowance of potatoes 'and vegetables, with a pint of wine daily for 30 years of this period, above 30 tons of solids and liquids must have passed through his stomach. Soyer, in his popular work, the Modern Housewife, says : — Take seventy years of the life of an epicure, beyond which nge many, qf that, class oi 'bon vivants,' arrive, and even 'above eighty, are still inthe full enjoyment of degustation, &c. (for example, Tallyrand, Cambaceres, Lord.Sefton, etc.) ; if the first of the said epicures, when entering on the tenth spring of his extraordi nary career, had been placed on an emiuenco — say the top of Primrose Hill — and had had exhib...

ADELONO. (feom our cobkbspondent.) Swjtembbb 17th. — The fine weather after the late rain has caused the grass to spring up, and quite a change has come over the aspect of the country. Our hills are covered with verdure, interspersed with the blooming flowers of spring, and the notes of our native birds, the sunshine, and the summer air render a ramble in the bush enchanting to lovers of nature. Having recorded this change in natural objects, I proceed to inform you that consider able changes in our social arrangements are impending — especially as regards the pro prietorship of hotels. Mr. Murphy of the Adelong hotel, is retiring from that line of business, and Mr. Charles Shaw, present occupant of the Pride of Qalway is his succes sor ; while Mr. M. Cowan resumes manage ment of the latter establishment. Mr. Murphy intends to celebrate his retirement from the office of ' mine host,' which he has so long and so worthily filled, by giving a grand final ball. Last week the chum of Hil...

' '? 'THE DUTY OF LENDING. 'Fhom him that would borrow, turn not tliou away.' There it is plain as writing can make it. No. matter what you may , think, there's your duty ! . Do I hear you say, ' A man with any forecast would never need to borrow?' What then? Do we owe no kind n'essto people who are deficient in forecast? Do you say, 'It encourages shiftlessness ?' Very likely. But would ' h'ot\ the ' refusal promote selfishness?;: Selfishness in you is far worse than shiftlessness in your neigh bour— ? -; ? - - ?? ? - i First comes, domestic. borrowing.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. After the meeting of the Anglican Synod at Goulburn, which commences on the first of next month, we are informed it is probable that one of tho ' clergy resident in ' that city may assent to hold occasional services in St. John's Church, - Gundagai, and elsewhere (which probably means Tumut) pendingfurther arrangements.

The quaint,. 'bratol assertion of' the American backwoodsman that the proper mode to improve savages was'^'to improve them off the face of ? the earth,' is a rather unpleasantly true defi nition nf a work-in which the members of the great colonising Anglo-saxon race have been long' engaged, and which they seem destined : shortly to complete. Even the atmosphere of civilization they carry with them to distant lands. seems fatal to savage life and produc ' tiyeness. 'With the exception of the Negro race, which appears the only one that can -thrive under such circumstances, all aboriginal tribes'that: have come in contact /with Euro pean settlers, have pined and faded away. The North American Indians were probably tho highest 'tiype of 'savage's 'they ? encountered, although not in reality such noble fellows as the - Delaware warriors Fenimobe Coopee's novels partray; yet their bravery, sagacity, ? fortitude, power of enduring pain, fatigue, and 'privation, and other fine traits in the...

ADELONQ. (FROM OCR CORRKSPONDENT.) September 24th. — We have had genial showery weather since I last wrote, and cattle, horses, and all other stock are beginning to show by their improved condition that feed is becoming abundant. On Monday last we had a verv heavy thunder storm. accomDanied bv a shower of hailstones as large as small marbles. One clap of thunder was so loud as to make several who were seated in conversa tion spring up in alarm. Professor Parker and Miss Annie Beaumont gave an entertainment here on .Wednesday evening, which was a great success. The lady's singing was highly appreciated, and she was allowed by one and all to be the best vocalist that has visited us for years. The Professor's skill as a swordsman is well known to all, and he fully sustained his reputation on the occasion I speak of by the able way in which he cut in two a fine sheep, provided for the occasion by Messrs. Baily and Ashworth of our township, and asjto which he remarked, previous to making...
