CONTINENAAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 14 April 1860

Euror has been nitated by the alleged design of Fruce to annec Savoy and Nice to theEmpire. It is thought to be the real key to the Italian ques tion. The French press has boldly advocated the absorption as necessary to give a secure frontier. Our Government disapproves of the project. Sar dinia denies all intention of surrendering Savoy, and according to the Morniny Post of the IGtlhthe Emperor urges his claim, but refers to the decision of the European Powers. The dissension between Napoleon and the Pope widens, and must soon come to an open rupture. The Univers has been suppressed for publish ing the Holy Father's encyclical letter to the dig nitaries of the Church. Otlher papers have iu:cp suffered the same fate. Order is maint-t.:ed in Rome with the utmost difliculty. The English Governmcnt have made propo?nal for the settlement of the Italian question by pati.ic means, to which France in the main assents. but they have been rejected by Austria and I:rui;, Meanwhile, in Piidmon...

MORE CLIQUISM. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 14 April 1860

MORE CLIQUISM1. [To the Editor of the WLLuArsrow.O CnnoUrcLE.] 'DEAn Smr,-I was not a little surprised to find, last- Monday evening, on visiting- the Council, that the same three worthy gentle mein who had voted themselves upon the Pub lic-Works Committee last year have had the unblushing- effrontery to repeat the operation again this year. The object which these men may have in view is not for me to say, but one would suppose that after the scourging which cliquism received at the last:.public meeting, whatever unidercurrent might be at work, there would at least have been a show of decency maintaiied. I believe it was Coun cillor White who-stated that' he had voted at the late election, but not for himself, and I can well imagine how heartily the three wor thies ,laughed in their sleeves at White's sim plicity.'

THE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 14 April 1860

THE FLOODS. CASTLEMAINE.—Everywhere the effects of the   flood may be seen. Reservoirs, dams, and pad- docks, ground worked and unworked, present one uniform appearance. The Chinamen are the chief sufferers, but they, with an elasticity wonderful to   behold, and worth of imitation, are already making the best of a bad job, and are employed in consider- able numbers cradling the surface-dirt washed down by the torrent, and in doing so are taking measures to reserve ground from further damage from a sim- ilar cause. In this, too, their example might be followed with advantage. By putting on labour, properly applied, the water now in the creek could be made to form a channel to a very great extent, and permanent, and would, at any rate, prevent any very serious damage from any other floods we may have during the coming winter. With the exception of the work commenced by the Chinese, mining matters have almost been brought to a standstill, the approaches to th...

CHARMING BULLOCK CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 14 April 1860

CHARMING BULLOCK CREEK.—During the   late floods in this stream, fish of considerable size have been taken up by hand, apparently stupefied. This circumstance is, we find, referable to the fact that during the summer it is the practice of a squat- ter to wash a large number of sheep, dipping them with tobacco, arsenic, and other pernicious sub- stances in a water-hole between the Buckeye and Lockwood, and this, when the floods overflow it into the creek produces the above effect. If it af- fects the finny tribe in this very serious manner, it cannot be very good for the residents on the creek.—Bendigo Advertiser. THE BAKER'S CREEK CULVERTS.—A com- mission, consisting of Messrs. Heales, Caldwell, and Verdon, have paid a visit to Castlemaine, for the purpose of personally inspecting the railway culverts at Baker's Creek, said to be constructed of bad material. These gentlemen inspected the works in question on Saturday last, and took away specimens of the cement and brick...
