Two bushrangers—Bartlett and Ellis— who had stuck up and robbed Alexander "Wilson; with great violence on Chinaman's Flat, were captured by Detectives Eason and Duffy, on the 8th instant, and lodged in, -Maryborough lock-up. Sticking-up continues to prevail on all the roads leading to the gold-fields. There were sixty-eight cases, entered for trial at the Criminal Sessions, Melbourne, which commenced on Monday last. An aboriginal of the Yarra tribe, named Jack, who was about 45 years old, and had been known to Mr. Fen ton, a publican, in Melbourne, during seventeen years, arrived in Melbourne on the 11th inst. He was very wet, and Mr. Fenton gave him a change of clothes. Toward, evening be complained of pains in his stomach and limbs, and had a glass of hot brandy given him.

THE ENGLISH CHARACTERISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 February 1857

THE ENGLISH CHARACTERISTICS. rFrom Emerson's Traits.'] They have no fancy, and never, are surprised into a covert or witty word, such as pleased the Athenians and Italians, and was convertible into a fable not long after; but they delight in strong earthly expression, not mistake\x=req-\ able, coarsely true to the human body, and, though spoken among princes, equally fit and welcome to the mob. This homeliness, veracity, and plain style appear in tlie earliest extant works, and in the latest. It imports into songs and ballads the smell of the earth, the breath of cattle, and, like a Dutch painter, seeks a household charm, though by pails and pans. They ask their constitutional utility in verse. The kail and herrings are never out of sight. The poet nimbly recovers from every sally of the imagination. The English muse loves the farm-yard, the lane, and market. She says, with De Stael,'' I tramp in the mire with wooden iihoes whenever they would force me into the clouds." For the Engl...

Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 27th February, 1857. THE LAND RESOLUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 February 1857

£ait& (Suarfctan, Friday, 27th February, 1857. THE LAND RESOLUTIONS. The Land Resolutions from No. 8 to the end have been adopted by the Legislative Assembly, with two amendments. One of the amendments is of very little importance. It merely changes the word "lease"; into the word " license." And that it was considered unimportant is manifest from the fact that ultra squatters and moderate squatters, as well as anti-squatters and ultra anti-squatters unanimously joined together in favor of changing the word from " lease" to " license". The other amendment we look upon as more important—as a real amendment. The amendment we allude to is that suggested by Mr. Humffray to the 9th reso lution—" That an ample extent, of Crown lands should be reserved for commonage in the neighbourhood of each gold field." This was accepted by the Surveyor-General, and added to the 9th resolution, which was then adopted. It now reads thus— That it shall be lawfiil to license the occupation of Crow...

POPULAR EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 February 1857

- POPULAR EDUCATION. A meeting of the Teachers, and others interested in the Education of. the People,; was held lately, in the Scotch School Room Collins-street, Melbourne, Professor Hearn presiding. The . attendance numbered about forty gentlemen connected with scholastic institutions. After the usual preliminaries, Professor Hearn read his " Inaugural Address," the substance of which we subjoin:— The address commenced by deploring that the numerous disadvantages which attend the avocation of the. schoolmaster should have deterred competent individuals from embracing the profession, and the result was that bankrupt tradesman or broken down mechanics were too frequently found in the important position of preceptors. The qualifications necessary for a thorough efficient teacher were illustrated by an expression attributed to the celebrated Dr. Arnold, who once said to his pu- j Iiils " You come here not to read but to earn how to read." The address then | proceeded to eulogise the e...
