EARTHQUAKE SHOCKS IN THE ABRUZZI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 2 February 1882
EARTHQUAKE SHOOKS IN THE ABRUZZI, The "Times" Naples correspondent; under date of Sept. 29th says :-Sveral days have passed since I reported tli. disaiters occasioned in the Abruzzi by earthquake, and the accounts which are daily received. show that its shocks have not yet ceased, Castelfranco especially appears to have suffered; one half of the small town, containing about 3000 inhabitants, was destroyed by the first shocks, and these. con-' tinuing occasioned the fall of a mnoun tain which destroyed ten other houses. As yet no additional loss of life has been reported, but the agitation of the people is extreme, as fresh dangers are continually threatened by subterranean movements. Several thousand persons are loft without a dwelling, and are in extreme misery, and, to make matters worse, winter is approaching. The last shock felt was on Friday, and it was vertical, though for the most part the movements --have--been horizontal, as though the. monster were hurrying along to commit...

COMMENTS ON BVBNT. -o " The birds whose music fills the air; Do chirp and chatter heedlessly." -ANON. I wonder for what special objoot such roasting or rather grilling days as last Sunday were ordained. Talk of India, Queensland, China, and these other little places; well, if they're much hotter than this, I'll escape to the shady groves of the lower tropics as speedily as possible, for to live on the upper circle of this terrestrial ball is not to be dreamt of Sale is reforming beyond doubt; its no use your saying. anything. to the contrary Mr. Editor, forjust look at Tuesday's Court of Petty Sessions,'not a single case of drunkenness-the first instance on record. I suppose you'll say that it's all owing to this new artesian well beer, but you never do take a charitable view of the case. It is calculated to bring out the risibility of much more gloomy men than myself to see the little petty digs and rib-pokes which the "Bairnadale News" and "Advertiser" find such a fiendish delight...

We regret to say that in oonsequence of the small measure of monetary support given during the year, your committee were very re luctantly forced to the necessity of closing the Institute for a time, as the incoming subscriptions were not equal to meeting the current expenses, and the doors were therefore closed, and all expenses st...

THE IRISH AS SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 2 February 1882
THE IRISH AS SOLDIERS, i -4-- Leaving the discussion of the poli tical aspect to others, it may not be out of place, the " United States Gazette" thinks, to . remind. those. who are writing and speaking against the .Irish lower clases, as being. so bitterly hostile to England, that it is from such a source that some of the best:and. bravest of the British army are re cruited. The loyalty, courage, and endurance of. the Irish soldier in English. ranks are historic memories'of which all Englishien are proud. Does the son of Erin change hisa nature with the sky When Lady. Morgan des. cribed her countrymen as Fighting like devils for conciliation: And hating one another for the love of God. he was referring to Irishmen 'upon their own soil.

THE Maffra Spectator. THURSDAY MORNING, FEB. 2, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 2 February 1882
THE Maffra Spectator THURSDAY MORNING, FEB. 2, 1882 THE Scriptures say, "Blessed is the peacemaker," but there is a trite pro- verb among men to the effect that he who attempts to pacify wranglers is &nbsp; generally himself assailed. To the present state of affairs ecclesiastic in this town, this latter essentially lay proverb is extremely appli- cable. A few weeks back it came to our knowledge that certain members of the Church of England in this town- ship were dissatisfied with their pastor, the occasion of obtaining this knowledge being our attending a meet- ing of the members of St. John's Church, called ostensibly for the pur- pose of electing guardians of the church for the current year, but into which matters totally at variance with they alleged object of the meeting were in- troduced, the purport of which was a complaint that the reverend gentleman who presided at the meeting, was holding his cure against the wishes of his congregation. In the next issue of this j...
TOONGABBIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 9 February 1882
TOONGABBI B. (rouca oeaasronsr.) At Mackintosh's, Toongabbie sale,' last week,,tho yards were well filled with fat and store cattle most of which were cleared at ruling quotations, although, owing to the push of harreat, the attendance of buyers was very limited. The young man Scott who, was recently lost, again left his honme on Thursday last, and has not since been heard of. Mler. Surveyor Hill, of tile Railway Department, was here last week, going over the alteration made by Mr. Elsdon on, tile railway line through Toongabbio. It is a great pity that the State should be put to so great an, expense simply to gratify a caprice of one individual. The line as originally laid of by Mr. Surveyor Martin tlhrough Toongabbie is in every. way.: far superior to any other line that cauld be taken and it has been a riddle why it was ever altered, Why is a snecse like Niagaral Be, cause it is a catarrlhct. " Sie was always busy and always quiet," was written on tihe tombstone, of a lady.

2'INAM1BA (reoee ACOoRasPsvONDw.) Te s. February, 6. There- was only a, small portion; of land uwider. cultivation.this last seasoni. not so much evei as half 'of the aiea of., last year. ' This is accounted for.by the poor returns. for. 1880, in. which. year rust, catterpillars,.;and take-all;e des. troyod:the greater part of the crops, while floods, assisted' some farms in materially, reducing the average yield. For the harvest just finished, I am glad to say, the yield has been very favor' able, and much above the average per acre for. several years previous;, the quality of the grain, more especially wheat, being excellent; peas have not' - yielded so well here:as in Upper Maifra,. where a stronger richer soil, more suitb able for this kind of crop, prevails. Mangolds also, though promising: well',. do not have that luxuriant appearance so noticeable in this root crop in Upper Maffir; mangolds require a strong, deep soil to come to perfection- either- as respects quantity or qua...
