LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. Tuesday, February 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 February 1876
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMIIDLT. Tuesday, Februarny 1. The greatest interest was manifested in the proceedings of the Assembly on Tuesdlay evening, as it was anticipated that some statcment -vould be made either by the Governmeut-or the Opposition as to the granting of supplies. The galleries were tilled with eager crowds from an early hour, while in the vicinity of the building large numbers assembledl to discuss the intelli gence from time to time afforded of the pro gress of business in the House. The public meetings held in various parts of the country on the previous night, and the reception accorded to Mr. Berry and his collesagues at Sindhurst, as compared with the treatment to which Mr. Walker was subjected at Castlemaine, appeared to have completely cowed the Government and their supporters, while it imparted renewed vigor to their opponents. This was noticeable throughout the sitting, which resulted in what may be considered a triumph for the minority. At live o'clock Sir James M'C...

CORRESPONDENCE. [It is to be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.-EDITOR.]) MUD THROWING AGAIN. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERAM.) SIR,-Your subsidised local contemporary, "true to the instincts of its class," has again commenced its mud throwing propen sities by asserting that some of our newly elected committee men of the Library are making use of their official position to ex clude from that institution certain news papers that advocate principles that are obnoxious to them. Now, it is quite evident to any man of common sense that they had no such motives. It is well-known that the funds of the Library have been squandered away for a lot of useless newspapers that no one cared to read. For instance, such papers as the Gedong Times and Camoperdoson Chronicle, these are not worth the expense of postage. The ''elegrsph could also be dis pensed with, seeing that there are four other Melbourne papers. Our new men are acting wisely...
MELBOURNE. Wednesday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 February 1876
AfELBOURNEVB. (iROc OUsI OWx CORRESPONDENT.) Wednesday Evening. From a variety of sources it is now asserted that the Stonewallers are about to take up a new position, which, if it meais anything, is the granting of supplies, but not with. drawing theit hostile front to GCovernment. Unquestionably the refussal to permit sup. plies was a mistake, an error so opposed to practice that Mr. Iigislbotalmns's retirement was without doubt plecipitated by the action. Independently of this, public feel ing was against the punishment of those Who were ineither actors or offenders, the Civil servants, police, &c., and as every individual connected with Government, either it their service or dirawing money from the Treasury, has friends and acquaint. ances, not to say tradespeople, conneted with him in various ways a discontented feeling has crept in which couldnot be over looked. The annual meeting of the Melbourne Hospital was a pleasant surprise for the five outgoing merml:ers of the ...

NEWSPAPERS FOR THE LIBRARY. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 4 February 1876
NEWSPAPERS FOR THE LIBRARY. (TO THE EDITOR OF TIHE HERALD.) SIR,-lt seems tome that the ' olac 'ime',; finding that it cannot for e the people to peruse its -columns by leaving it at their residecces gratis, or at least nithoct their orders, is now trying to attract readers by making false statements with respect to the stoppage of some of the papers at the Library. It is well known that the t;ecldny Times was ordered to be discotinued t o months ago, instead of its being withdrawn by the proprietor, and my endeavor to ob tain the B,,ltaat Uourier in place, of tihe Camperdown ChtIsonicle was akni.effort to ob tain a newspaper that would be of some use to the district in place of one that is not. . Truly the 'Times must be badly off for readers when driven to adopt such tactics. Yours, &c., R. SITLINGTON. Coloc, February 3, 1876.
