DUTCH ANNA. , ' (Continued). * I tell you, Jack,' she continued, ad vancing into the midst of the group, and laying her hand on the man's arm, you shan't touch that woman : you won't; I know you won't. Bud enough you are-we all are, God knoe's-but there's no blood upon our hands yet; and,' added she, lowering her voice, 'blood will speak, you know-re member.' The man's countenance fell as the girl ut'ered the lrst words; he relaxed his hold of the knife; and Anna, taking advantage of his in decision, and the relenting expression she thought she read in the dark faces round her, related her simple story, dwelling particularly upon the danger the coiners would incur were elie missing, and their security in cayn she was allowed to proceed on her journey, after seeing her friend the clergyman.

Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.]   THE SHIRE COUNCIL. (To the Editor of the Standard.) SIR,--Allow me to withdraw one word In my last to you. I have known Dr Fergusson for some years, and esteem him for the suavity of his manner and his kindness of heart, and am sorry that I applied the term   "skunk" to him. I intended nothing offensive     in the use of this word. For the rest, I do not regret censuring his public conduct, as from a man of his attainments and position we have a right to expect more decision of character and independent action than he displays in council matters. Apologising to you and him,-I am, &c., Q August 21, 1877.

Having expressed a desire to see the inside of the new building, while doing so a favorite little dog belonging to the teacher was thrown a   poisoned bait on the school ground, and instantly died. On the following day the so-     called overseer actually begged forgiveness from the teacher. From several blackguard actions which have been committed in the neighborhood of late, I would suggest that whenever such men as I ...

LATEST NEWS. MELBOURNE, Friday night. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 25 August 1877

LATEST NEWS. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.]   MELBOURNE, Friday night. Three separate cases of forgeries against different individuals were heard at the City Court to-day, Benson, the   manager of the Metropolitan Building Society, J. K. Pow, and Joseph Webster being the victims. In the latter case the defendant was a man named M'Lean, who had been pre- viously convicted of a similar offence, and was employed by the firm to give him another chance. Great preparations are being made for the Mayor's fancy ball on Tuesday next, which is expected to prove a great success. O'Connor, late station-master at Birregurra, was arrested at Avoca for embezzling Government money, and remanded to Melbourne. SYDNEY, Friday. Rush has challenged Trickett to row at the Balmain regatta for the cham- pionship. It is undecided whether he will accept.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 September 1877

MELBOURNE LET LER. (FtiO3 OUR OWN CORiRESPONDENT). The Mayor's faniry aull, which took place on Tuesday morning, takes procedence of all other topics this week. It was undoubtedly a very brilliant affair, and in every way refleoted credit upon the host, and generally upon the guests also, though I am not pre pared to say there were no exceptions, and a few unbidden guests who Intruded were sub jected to the ignominy of expulsion. How ever, taken as a whole, the display was one of which, as a young community, the city has reason to be proud, marking as it does the possession of an amount of wealth, taste, and luxury which in proportion to our population will vie with any other city in the world. In a social aspect there were the usual triumphs, flirtations, jculousies, and heart-bnrnings. Doubtless the fate of many a life will have found its turning point in the carnival in question. It will cert inly be long remembered by the majority of the visitors as ai mnmorable scene, but I hea...

The im posing appearance of the taled, as it groaned under the weight of delicacies prepared by the host in a style that would do credit to mIany of the Mel bourne hotels. called forth approbation from 11i present. Shortly after the appointed hour the gentlemen took their sears, having first. appointed John Whitelaw, Esq., J P., to the chair, ind Dr Fergusson to the vice-chair.

YEA. (PROM OUR CORnnISPONDENT). I visited the Providence Ieef on Saturday, when the manager kindly gave me an inkling into what has been done on the mine since his appointment some two months ago. The machinery has been put into a thorough atate of repair, and it is my unprejudiced opinion that the prospects of this mine are excellent, and likely to e hooard of to advantage at no very distant dato, While Mr Anderson wits waiting for the proper appliances to arrive from town for treating the pyrites, which. after all, are not to be treated, he spent a portion of his sparo time in pro-pecti, g the hill. The result is that lie discovered a well-defined ieef, two trials of which produced the satisfactory return of 7,z per ton. Dr Barker, a large share holder, came up from Melbourne to see it, and is perfectly satisfied with its lboa fdes. Constable Fitzgerald, without fear or favor, is determined to keep down drunkenness and disorder if possible, and it is gratifying to see that the ben...
