PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. THURSDAY, MAY 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 May 1867
PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA, Tun?nsnA, MAY 9. In the Legislative Assembly--The lion. Mr. M'Culloeh stated that he believed the resignation of Mr. Sands, as member for Dalhousie, was in the hands of an hon. member, and consequently the Government would not take any steps at prosent in regard to Mr. Sands. A longd obate took place upon the arrangement recontly entered into by the Government at the Postal Conforence. Cap tain M'Mahon moved that it was not satisfactory, nor calculated to advance the interests of the colony. IHe objected to the subsidising of throe lines by Victoria, and also that Melbourno had not boon made the port of arrival and departure for the Suez steamers. Mr. M'Cullooh replied that It was well for Victoria to have more than one line of mail conununication with Europe, both in case of war stopping the Suez steamers, and because each of the routes possessed some special ad. vantagos for all the colonies, in a greater or less degree, and if they expected all the colonie...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 May 1867
BATURDAY, MAY 18, 18G7. " Wn make history fast in this colony," as the IIon. Mr. VEnDON said; and no greater proof of this fact can be found than that while, fourteen months ago, we were in the midst of what may be called a mild meat famine, now we are alarmed by the cry of an bverstocked market for live stock, and con sequent impending ruin of tile squatters and graziers of this and the adjoining colonies. It is to be hoped that nothing so shocking (?) to the general community is about to happen as sheep retailed at Qs. Od. each. This would be worse than driving the squatters "across the Murray with their own stockwhips;" it would be driving them into the Insolvent Court because their sheep multiplied too quickly upon their rich and boundless pas tures. The past-and, indeed, present favourable season for the growth of grass appears to have caused as great an over supply of beef and mutton as it has of wheat and cereals in general. But, while the farmers have a commodity to a great ...

PRiESBYTERIAN BAZAAAR, BACCHUS MARSH. TiE Bazaar in aid of the Building Fund of the Presbyterian Church, now being held, has, so far, been very successful. The weather has injured its prosperity to some extent, but should to-day be fine, doubtless all cause of complaint will be forgotten.

The stalls are ranged on each side of the room, those of Mesdames Scott and Rae on the left of the entrance, and that of Mrs. Young, and the post offico and boolc stall presided over by Miss Robinson and Mrs. G.

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 May 1867
MELTON. (FROM0 OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) DuRING the past week the inhabitants in this neighbourhood have been solicited for subscriptions, with a view to raise £50, for the purpose of purclhsing the freehohld of the land on which the Molton United Pro testant Church and School was erected, on a lease, ten years ago. As the amount sub scribed was only £3', the trustees (Messrs. Blackwood and Russell) called a public meet ing for six p.m., on Saturday last, for the purpose of mnaking, I presume, a last appeal to the pockets of the residents. At the time appointed, Mr. Blackwood and myself were in attendance, and after waiting with as much patience as we could command for about an hour, Mr. A. M'Pherson, the Secretary to the School Commnittee, joined us. We waited until half-past seven, at which time, as there did not seem to boe any likeli hood of an augmentation of our numbers, we each went to our homes, and the result is that the building in which, for the last ten years, any- Protest...
LAND SALE, BACCHUS MARSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 May 1867
LAND SALE, IBACOHUS MARSH. CoNsIDslAnnaL interest has boon felt in the district in regard to the land sale of last Wodnes day 1 and, although the small munbor of lots which wore offorod afforded but slight opportunity for the gratification of "earth hunger," yet the prices which wore realisod showed that many coveted the possession of a few choice pieces of land. The attendance was largo, and the biddings were very spirited for most of the lots, as some of the pur chasers heold lands adjoining those to ho sold, and naturally felt disposed to give an oxceptional price for a few acres additional. It will ho soon that the Road Board obtained the reservation of all the liand they applied for, and much that was offired remains unsold, owing to its being of poor quality. Tho sale was conducted by Mr. I1. Lowo, and the amount paid in deposits was £500, showing the gross amount realised to bh £1120. The following is the detail of the sale : TOWN LOTS.

The polling at Bacchus Marsh was-Grant, 64; Green. well, 44, At Myrniong Mr. Grant receivod 24 votes and his opponent none. The polling would have been closer had not many ratopayers thought it better to wait until a subdivision of the district takes place--which cannot long be delayed-before they made any effort to obtain a representative for Parwan in opposition to such an inevitable mem ber for Myrniong as Mr. George Grant. Looking at the result of the election, then, as having merely retarded the representation of Parwan, and expedited that of Myrniong, by a few weoeks, we have no cause for regret. Th...
