No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 11 February 1876

CIacRust??eANs alter cases, and notably amongst the cases " altered " are those of newspapers. When Mr. FANcIS submitted his motion of Constitutional Reform, it was strongly denounced as being a "foreign " and "Norwegian scheme," especially by the Argus and the Daily Telegraph. Those two jour nals, with a charming unanimity and identity of terms, now support the "foreign" scheme of Sir JAMES MI'CULLoCH's proposed new standing order to gag discussion, aud enable his corrupt majority to pass his income tax and land-monopolist budget in spite of the Opposition and the country. It is rather anomalous, or absurd, to find the two most Conservative organs in the colony complacently quoting precedents from "Republican France and demo cratic America to justify an innovation which is not alone unconstitutional in conception and design, but a retrograde attempt to lay the corner stone of a feudal and despotic system of governing the country with an irresponsible oligarchy. It is easy to concei...

SOIREE AND PUBLIC NMEETING, PRESBYTERIAN CHIURCH. The members of the Colac Presbyterian Church on Tuesday evening last indulged in a very unusual demonstration, by holding a tea and public meeting in the Oddfellows' Hall. This is the first occasion for seven years that a tea-meeting has taken place in connection with this Church, and the result was certainly most satisfactory. The tea was provided by the ladies of the congrega tion and the Church Committee. About 150 persons sat down to tea, and there was abundance of everything for everybody, and the consumption of tea and good things was something alarming. Notwithstanding the intense heat, all present thoroughly enjoyed themselves. After all had been satisfied, the Hall was cleared for the purpose of enabling the PUBLIC MEETISNG to be held. The attendance at this was very large, the Hall being well filled by about 300 persons, a large proportion of whom were ladies. Mr. Andrew Murray, J.P., occupied the chair, and the Revs. *Mess...

SCENE IN THE PARLIAMENT YARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 11 February 1876

SCENE IN THE PARLIAMENT YARD. -The. greatest excitement prevailed on Tuesday evening in the vicinity of the Parliament House. Long prior to the commencement of the proceedingi the approaches were besieged with people endeavoring to obtain admission, and soon the various galleries were crowded to excess, and remained so during the evening. About nine o'clock there could not have been less than 500 peisons in the Parliament yard, many of those attending the public meeting having assembled there to discuss the political situation. As hon. members presented themselves at the windows they were greeted with groans or cheers as they were recognised to belong either to the Government or the Opposition. The feeling of anta gonism to Sir James M'Culloch and his supporters was manifested by the most vigorous boohooing, while the members of the Opposition, as. they occasionally made an appearance, were received with tremendous cheering, which could be heard within the Assembly Chamber. There wa...

The meeting was attendedby fully four hundred persons, the large hall j being crowded with an assemblage which was a. thoroughly, representative one, and which will compare favorably in every respect with any other political meeting ever held in Colac.

Shortly after eight o'clock proceedings were initiated by Mr. Edmund Cooper being voted to the chair, on the motion of Messrs. Sitlington and Bartlett. The ...
