NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 April 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK, Some few days ago an Inspector from the General Post Office visited the neighbourhood of Pyreeto, with a view to reporting upon the necessity of having a line of postal service betwoen Gisborne and Bacchus Marsh, thereby including Bulloegarook, Of course, the nature of his report will not be made public yet, but as soon as we are in a position to do so, we shall acquaint our readers with the result. The Road Board propose to take action to secure some timber reserves for the district out of thu Crown Land to be sold at Bacchus Marsh on the 15th inst. In so doing they will be adopting a course of action which all colonists will approve of, for not a little discussion has taken place amongst scientific men in all countries as to the evils flow ing from a destruction of forest trees. It has been acknowledged that trees have a groat offect upon the rain-fall, and that whore agricultural opera, tions have boon conducted in distriots surrounded by trees, a more adequate ...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 April 1867

MELTON. (vnoM, ouR owN conaESPONDENT.) LAST week it was my duty to furnish you with some particulars relating to the laying of the foundation-stone of the Wesleyan Church at this place, and I have now to infirm tho publio of West JIourke, through the medium of your columns, that the Presbyterian body is at present holding a bazaar fbr the purpose of raising a sum of money to assist in the completion of their substanmtial church in the township. '.'he Fancy F'ir was opened on Tuesday, the M2?3rd instaut, and though the numbelr of supporters who put in an appear unce on the first day was not largo, the pecuniary result is, I am informed on the best authority, very satisfhetory. Nor do I think that those persons who nre acquainted with this neighbourhood will be surprised to hear this statement, for the tact is our popu1 lation is numerically stmall,1, and though there are residin and owning property around Molton, wealthy proprietors, the community can hardly be called rich.

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 April 1867

BALLA N, (o1oM ova ooanEsroxN Nr.) TIIERE is no surer indication to be soon of a people's steady progress than the varied and usefll institutions they establish and erect one by one as, stop by step, they silently move along the groat highways of civilisation. The differenco between a savage and a civilised nation lies as much in the nature and objects of their representative institutions as in the difference of races itself. I say representative institutions, because they spoluk a language peculiar to themselves, but easily interpreted by the student of the prosent and the past. Hence it is that we of to-day can look backwards on those "Footstops in the sands of timu;" and, in the mouldering palaces and buildings of antiquity, learn even the true character and motives of the old Roman, the ac complished Greek, and the 'deep-learnt swarthy Egyptian. No nation ever "ains power and. import ance in the world1s estimation until that nation possesses within itself' powerfhl and important...

COURTS OF PETTY SESSIONS. BACCHUS MARSH. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24. (Before Charles Shuter, Esq., P.M., and Dr. Rae, Esq., J.P.) SMALL DEBT. F. Goding and F. Clarke v. E. Sloss. Work and labour (fencing) - £10 3s. 6d. Mr. Miller, for defendant, objeced to the form of summons, and desired to show that the plain- tiffs came under the Masters and Servants Act. The Bench overruled the objection. F. Goding deposed that he and Clarke put up certain fencing, to which Sloss made no objection, but refused to pay for it because witness and Clarke declined to do any more fencing at the same price. The reason why they stopped was that box posts were supplied instead of stringy- bark ones. There was no written or verbal agree- ment as to the completion of the whole of the fencing at a certain price. Witness and Clarke had completed one line of fencing under a written agreement with Sloss, and had commenced another, which they stopped because box posts were given them to erect. F. Clarke gave corrobora...

SELECTED POETRY. KEEPING THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 April 1867

SELECTED POETRY. KEEPING THE HEART. Keep thy heart above all keeping, For the springs of life are there ; Fervent yearnings, upward leaping,   Fill that fountain strange and rare; Beating still, and tiring never, Each pulsation's earnest three, Stirs the will, desire, endeavour, Whence the streams of action flow. Keep thy heart above all keeping, For the foe may enter there; Never on thy watch-tower sleeping, Bar thy gates with instant prayer. Parley not with strong temptation, Guard the ear and guard the eye; Let thy thought, and conversation Rise, like incense, to the sky. Keep thy heart above all keeping, Roots of bitterness are there; Evil weeds, clandestine creeping, Mar thy soul's plantation fair. By repentance, faith, and pardon, Prun'd and purg'd, and swept from those, Let thy soul, a water'd garden, Bud and blossom as the rose. Keep thy heart above all keeping Fruits of life or death are there: As thy sowing, so thy reaping : Scatter then thy seed with care, Ch...

A TALE FOR THE MALTHUSIANS, A ?l?uNoIc gentleman, residing in 1810, in Suffolk-street, London, then a popular so. journ for Scotehmen and foreignors, had a wifo who was on the tiptoe of oxpectation as to her confinement, Symptoms appeared so did the aecouchour; and Monsieur Quel. quechoso (or whatever his name might be) adjourned to the Orange Coffeehouse, at the corner of the IHaymarket (where Mr. Mat. thews, the modern Aristophanes discovered the very " gentilman, whose hair came a leetlo through his hat,") and nervously anxious about the welfare of his better-half, yet unable to remain in his anxiety at home, directed the maid-servant to come the instant tha?t Madame Quclquechose was out of her trouble, and tell him. Quclquechoso sat himself down in the Coffeehouse, and ordered a glass of brandy and water ; he reclined in a box, sipped his beverage, and thought of his wife. At about half-past nine lhe heard a sort of scuffle in the passage ; in came the maid, and regardless of fo...

AGRICULTURAL. WHEAT—ITS CULTURE IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 May 1867

AGRICULTURAL. WHEAT-ITS CULTURE IN AMERICA. WIIEAr is the most prominent cereal which we find spoken of in ancient record. It has been cultivated from those days to the present by many nations'of the globe. There are limits boyond which it may not be culti. vated, as with all other cereals. What thoso limits are we are not filly prepared to say, and as they have no immediate influence upon our present discussion, will be passed, The question will rather be upon its pro duction in the wheat-growing sectiou of the United States. From the census statistics of 1800, we learn that it is grown in thirty-four States, seven territories and districts. The aggre. gate . number of bushels in 1800 was 178,104,024. In newly-sottled countries, the soil being virgin, contains a largo amount of accumu. lated organic matter, derived from natural tources. This furnished pabulum for growing crops for many years. The cultivator, not foeeling the necessity of fortilising his soil as when one piece faile...
