TRIAL OF PRESERVED MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
TRIAL OF PRESERVED MEAT. Un Wednesday forenoon some five-and twenty gentlemen met at the stores of Messrs Dalgety, Blackwood and Co, in Little Collins street, for the purpose of tasting1 some meat cured by the process of the Victorian Meat Preserving Company, and taken on a voyage to England and back in the ship George Thompson, Captain Shepherd. The meat was in a cask, and had been preserved in fat, ac cording to the company's process. When the cask was opened on Wednesday, the meat proved to be in perfectly sound condition, and was capital eating. The advantage of the Victorian Company's process over others is that the meat is preserved in large joints, from which, however, all bone is extracted before they are placed in the cask. A little bisulphite of lime is used in the opera tion of curing, but its taste was not in the slightest degree perceptible in the meat cut up on last Wednesday. We have since learned that the vicissitudes of temperature and climate to which it was expose...
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. THE NEW LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. THE NEW LAND BILL. The Argus says:—"To us it seems that for the purposes of this bill one hundred clauses are absurdly long. One section ought amply to suffice. It would provide that every person in the country shall hold tho land he already posesses, and shall acquire any new land that ha may happen to want, at the pleasure and under the permission of Mr Grant. But whether the law be contained in one section or in one hundred, the result is the same, and if this bill, in its present form, becomes law, Mr Grmt will be the absolute lord of Victoria. The Age considers that the new measure will put an end for ever to dummying, and thus recapitulates the conditions of settle ment :—" Selectors will have to reside per sonally on the land for two years and a half, to fence in the whole allotment, and to culti vate one acre in ten. The value of the im provements altogether must amount in the three years to £1 an acre,and under the head of improvements will be include...
CHEAP RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
CHEAP RAILWAYS. A letter from the Engineer-in-Chief of Railways to the Hon J. F. Sullivan was laid on the table of the Assembly on Tuesday evening. Mr Higinbothnm strongly depre cates the construction on what is commonly called the cheap mode, of the proposed North Eastern line of railway. He believes, how ever, that there are many lines in Victoria where a light mode of construction may be adopted with advantage. He points out that if the North-Eastern line be constructed as a light line, capable of low speeds only, it will compete on most unfavorable terms with the greatly superior line from Goulburn to Syd ney, and also that the journey from Mel bourne to Albury will occupy nearly 12J instead of 7 J hours. The only saving, he states, will be in permanent way materials and ballast, and lie considers that the in creased expense in working and maintenance will far exceed the saving interest. A heavy traffic could be done with the same rolling stock and stations that would be suffici...
PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. In the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday the Local Government Act was read a third time and passed. Mr James, the newly elected member for Ballarat West, took his seat on the Ministerial benches. The Legislative Council sat for a very short time on Wednesday. The County Courts Bill was received 8nd read a first time. In the Assembly, on the same day, the Munici pal Corporation Act Amendment Bill was further considered in committee. A few clauses only were reserved for further con sideration and amendment. In the Legislative Assembly on Thursday evening, the Lands Compensation Bill was read a second time. The object of the bill was to simplify the means by which the Go vernment can resume possession of land re quired for public purposes, and also to reduce the cost. It was provided that when the value of the land required was under £200, the matter should be settled by a police ma gistrate, but when the value was over that amount, the question should be determin...
MOAMA POLCE COURT. Wednesday, 2nd June. (Before Mr Maunsell, P.M.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869

Mr Eldrige (of the firm of Eldrige, Lang and Co., timber merchants) by whom the defendants were employed, while admitting the charge, explained that some months ago he had applied to the Govern ment for a lease of this portion of Crown lands, but had received no reply. The Bench stated that in view of the circumstance men tioned by Mr Eldridge, a mitigated penalty had been imposed. Friday, 4th June. (Before Mr Maunsell, P M.)

BORDER INDUSTRIES. THE ECHUCH STEAM SAW-MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
BORDER INDUSTRIES. THE ECHUC\ STEAM SAW-MILLS. These works, whioh have Wn established some three years, are situated about a mile from the railway station, on the bank of the Murray, nearly opposite Moami. They are the property of Mr Mackintosh, who at the Crown lands Bale on Tuesday last became the purchasers of the land on whioh they stand. This consist of six aores of tolerably good land, as is evi denced by a flourishing little garden in front of the dwelling of Mr Mackintosh. The buildings, which are of some extent, comprise the Baw-mills, offioes, stables, a blacksmith's shop, a dwelling house, men's huts, and a building containing n ohaff-outting maohine, driven by the engine of the millB, whioh is used Bolely for the purposes of providing fodder for the horses of the establish ment. THE MACHINERY by whioh the various operations of the mills are peformed, consists of a horizontal engine of twenty-horse power, nominal, which is supplied with steam from a large Cornish flue boi...
The Riverine Herald. ECHUCA, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
E0J1XJGA, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 186». The provisions of the New Land Bill are scarcely calculated to raise the spirits df the squatters, notwithstanding Mr Grant's assu rance of his desire to protect them from ruin. The facts of the extension of the 42nS sec tion, and of the increase in the quantity of land to be taken up uDder it by individuals, are not to be regarded as being so dangerous to their interests as that of the almost un limited power with which the measure pro poses to invest the Board of Land and Works. It may be true that great and general confi dence is felt in the discretion and justice of the present Minister of Lands; but minis terial seats are liable to change of occupants, and life itself is uncertain. It is quite pos sible that the administration of the Act may fall hereafter, and at no distant period, into unscrupulous hands, which may refuse to be guided by the moderate and considerate views entertained by Mr Grant. His expressed wish and intention to preserve t...

THE DARLING TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
THE DARLING TRADE. (From the Pastoral Times.) Just now there is a good deal of activity all along the river—steamers are forcing their way from Wentworth to Fort Bourke (and up the Barwon which is the head of the Darling) right into Queensland—thousands of tons of goods and merchandise are poured into these districts, as the South Australians are enabled thus to extend their commercial relations into the rear of Queensland. Thus, at L10 per ton, Adelaide lands goods at Bourke, which goods would cost at least L20 per ton from Sydney, so that if the southern colony delivers 10,000 tons on the Upper Darling, say, once: in three years, and there is a saving of L10 per ton, there is a clear gain to the district' of L100,000—or say L50,000 are gained.' This &nbsp; gain is, more or less, divided among the people. Therefore the river trade by steamers, in which a large amount of capital is invested, is a business which ought, under certain legitimate and proper conditions, to be en-...
THE WESLEYANS. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 5 June 1869
THE WESLEYANS. It is exceedingly satisfactory to find that the Wesleyans, who are always to be found in the van of progression, are making earnest and strenuous efforts in Echuca for the ad vancement of their important body. They were the first to erect a place of worship in the Border town, and have now nearly com pleted a new and very handsome little church, the old building having been found insuffi cient for their purposes. This promises, when finished, to bo quite an acquisition to the town, and, in fact, reflects very great credit on those through whose exertions it is being built, as well as on the architects, Messrs Crouch and Wilson, of Melbourne, and Mr. Lever, the contractor. It stands in close proximity to the old erection, which we understand will shortly be converted entirely to school purposes. It is 45 feet in length, by a breadth of 30 feet. The walls are 24 feet in height, and the roof, massive and lofty. The woodwork of the latter is nearly complete, and the work ...

AN ESCAPED CONVICT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
AN ESCAPED CONVICT. A short time ago the antecedents of a no torious burglar, George Roberts, formed the subject of comment in the House of Com mons- He had returned from transportation three times, had suffered various terms of im prisonment for larceny, and a few weeks ago, on being found under suspicious circumstances in a house area, he was senl. to Wandsworth gaol for three months as a rogue and vaga bond. A fortnight since he was summoned to Bow-street, and charged with having re turned before the expiry of a term of trans portation for life, passed in 1842. The first sentence of banishment was pronounced in 1837, when he was sent to Hobart Town, worked his way to be one of the crew of Sir John Franklin's jolly-boat, and afterwards escaped. In 1842 he was again transported for life, but soon got a ticket-of-leave, joined the Hobart Town police, saved L50 out of his wages, went to America, and on the first night of his arrival fell among thieves, who left him penniless. In 1S51...
BREACH OP PROMISE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
BREACH OP PROMISE. A very interesting case of breach of promise of marriage was heard before the Chief Justice id Melbourne on last Friday. Damages were laid at L500 $ and Mr Micbie appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Aspiuall for the defen dant. The evidence went to shew that the plaintiff, Ann Beaton, left Scotland in 1864, bringing with her a first-class character from the Rev Duncan Kennedy, the Free Church minister of Killiamen pn-ish, and in 1867 she commenced to reside near Donald Macdonald, the defendant, a small farmer living near Ballarat. The corespondence, as read in court, afforded the usual amount of amusement. Donald, when he indited his first letter, was so fond that he enclosed twenty pounds to buy the wedding gear. In his second epistle, love's thermometer showed a falling in the mercury, and he mixed up crops, pigs, love and religion in bewildering confusion. As the mercury sinks, business and religious ad vice go up j and when freezing point was reached, love had ...

THE NEW SCAB ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
THE NEW SCAB ACT. Mr W lliam Archer, of Cheshunt, Tasmania,1 writes to the Australasian respecting tiie pro posed new Scab Act, as follows .—" Sheep owners in Tasmania are much interested in the discussion of what may be called ' the great scab question' in your columns, not only because of the importance of the subject in itself, but because a bill for the prevention of scab will be brought before our Legislature during the next session. The bill which Mr Macknight so ably advocates for adoption in Victoria seems a very complete one, and would1 be likely, with some slight modification, to i work well, if judiciously carried out.- His observation respecting- ' infection' is. un doubtedly correct, namely, that 'If the actual detection of the acarus on the sheep be neces sary to prove infection, then sheep that are as ' truly diseased as if they were rotten with1 scab may move without let or hindrance, and infect thousands of others over the whole country.' Anybody who has actually se...

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. THE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Riverine Herald — 9 June 1869
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. THE LAND BILL. The Age of yesterday says:—The objec tion which has been made to the bill that it confers on the Land Minister and on the Executivo Council powers in excess of those they ought to have, would have some weight if the objectors were to point out less objec tionable custodians of the requisite authority. Would they vest the powers in an irrespon sible board? Would they keep Parliament in permanent session in order that everj administrative act should receive legislatorial sanction ? We are as anxious as the Oppo sition can be that all objectionable and un necessary interference with the progress of settlement should be avoided, and that there should be no departure from fixed rules where it is possible to apply them. The new scheme, the Age asserts, has been received everywhere throughout the country with favour, and whatever the decision of the Assembly may be, the land policy of the colony must be determined by the voice of the majority out of do...
