HALF THE COST OF FLAGGING FOOTPATHS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
IAIL THE COST OF FLAGGING 'FOOTPATHS. Sir-When the would-be opponents of the payment of half the cost of flagging and paving are told that the Town Clerk has, in his custody, for their perusal, if they wish, the legal opinions sought and obtained by the Council, three weeks be foro.ethey ordered any flagging or pave meat, under the loan, in which it is' clearly stated for the guidance of the Council, that they could recover half the cost, from owners of property abutting footpaths thuspaved or flagged, of what ever width, or quality they chose to lay, without either consulting or getting the consent of such owners, and though these opponents cannot gainsay this, yet they insult your common sense by telling you that some ex-councillor, who may himself be liable for the payment of a large amount of pavement and flagging has told somebody that it was not the inten tion of the Council to collect half the cost, but mark they do not even attempt to say that there is the slightest record i...

SUNDAY TRADING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
SUNDAY TIADING. 'Although the police have retired from the unpleasant duty of persecuting un. fortunate publicans for Sunday trading, glad no doubt to be relieved from so un congenial an occupation, yet it appears their place have been occupied by several wretched informers in the pay of fanatical Good Templars. These miserable scamps, under the guise of thirsty travellers, enter licensed houses, ask for drink, and then immediately afterwards institute proceed ings in the police court against the un suspecting boniface. The police record show that several cases of this natnre have occurred lately in the Hotham Police Court. These informers are de serving of being tarred and feathered.
Football Notes. NORTH MELBOURNE V. ST. KILDA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
Football Notes. By SCRIMAGtE. NORTITI MELBOURNE V. ST. KILDA. Onward to St. Kilda was the general cry last Saturday with the 1st. twenty of the North Melbourne. Full of hope they started, and in due time found themselves on the pleasant looking ground of the St. Kilda club. After the usual greetings were over, the captains tossed, and for tune smiled on the local captain, who elected to kick down the hill, and with a light wind to help him. The teams were soon placed, and "forward" was tile cry from both captains, and almost immedi ately the game began in real earnest. North Melbourne seemed to hold their own for a few minutes, but a fine rally by the local resulted in their goal sneak, McDonnell, getting a couple of tries at goal, which, however, were both well stopped by that most good humored of goal minders, Power.. The bail kicked off, the Northerners began to play up, and soon made it uncomfortable for their op ponents. North Melbourno especially distinguished themselves in ma...
Tales, Sketches, &c. "WELL DONE!" [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
Tales, Sketches, &c. " WELL DONE 1" Butthe mother pleaded in, her turn to be leit where she was happiest; and, silenced once more, Owen sought to beautify the place a little by his generous gifts. But no; these made no difference in the poor dwel. ling. All the money that he sent his mother was put sacredly away. "Whoen I am gone, Duddgha," she said to her daugh. ter, "you will find it all untouched, and you may want it then. IT. It was Christmas Eve, and Owen was to dine at the school.house. He entered the long, warm room just as Alice, with her hands lull of flowers came from the green. house. While they lingered together ar. ranging the flowers, she wooed him on to talk ot what she felt hobeloved, and knowing that home would be near, his. heart this Christmas time, asked him of his mother and his sister. "I never like to mention your sister's name, Mr. Vaughan," she said, " because I do not know how to pronounce it. I have seen it in a book of yours, but Inever heard you ...
THE BRUNSWICK LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
THE BRUNSWICK LOAN. Many ratepayers who sympathise with Councillor Overend's motion for contract. ing a loan for drainage and other specified purposes, are of opinion that the considera tion of this question should be postponed. In thoe face of the cold receptions given to the deputation which waited on the hen. Mr. Anderson this week for a grant in aid for drainage, and the Local Government Bill, submitted by Mr. Gillies to Parlia ment, it is evident that if this measure should receive the sanction of Parliament, the borrowing powers of the borough will be decidedly improved; besides, the mode of providing for paying interest and cancelling the loan, will be greatly simplified. It is also a matter for serious consideration how far it is desirable to pledge the rates for the redemption of d large sum of money just now, as it must of necessity press very heavily on the rate. payers, while the increase to the value of property is very doubtful.
PUBLICATIONS RECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
PUJBLICATIONS RECEIVED. LAND SELrECTORS' GuanDE.-Mr. G. A. Goodwin, of Qauen.atroot, has issued a guide for land selectors in the form of a pamphlet. It contains very valuable information par ticularly adapted to farmers and others desirous of taking up land. TlE n AUSTRALASIAN TEIMPLA."-The third number of this useful and interesting publication is to hand, and showns a decided improvement. As its name implies, the '"Templar" is in the interest of the total abstainers, and contains an immense amount of varied information auitable to its readers. The typographical part reflects great credit upon the printers, Messrs. MI'Carros, Bird, and Co., while the editor and proprietor, Mr. Peter Alcoclk, has evidently found a congenial sphere in which to exercise his abilities as a determined foe to intemperance. The paper should be in the hands of overy Good Templar.
ARREST OF ARCHBISHOP OF COLOGNE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
ARII~EST OF ARCHBISHOP OF COLOGNE. Mfugr. Melohers, Archbishop of Cologoe, has been arrested, and convoyed to prison. He has been warned some days before to hold himself in readiness for this, but, when the President of Police at last called upon him, he protested strongly, and doolared that he would only yield to force. So the officer took him by the arm and led him out to the carriage, which was waiting before the door. The Cologne diocose has been perfoatly pre. pared for this arrest of its chief. For a fort. night before it actually occourred. deputationd had been pouring into the city from all parts of the diocese, conveying the sympathy of the faithful with their "persecuted" head. it was one of the sights of Cologne to watch the daily prooession from the railway-sta. tton to the palace, and the place before the prelato's residence was always fall of people ready to greet the first gleam of a voilet soutane with tuminnltu s hoohs. Day and night some watched the door, determine...
MEETING AT BRUNSWICK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
M1EETING AT IBRUNSWICK. A meeting of the subscribers to the fund which was raised for the widow of the late Mr. O'Dea, who was accidentally killed at Hoffman's Patent Brick Works, Brunswick, took place at the Brunswick Hotel, Sydney Road, last Tuesday evening. Mesars. Hard ing and Collins were present, and tendored their resignation as trustees for the widow. It appears that some person signing himself A. B, in a communimcation to an evening paper, had indulged in some untruthful strictures on the ihtegrity of these gentlemen, but at the unanimous request of the sub. ocribers they were prevailed on to resume their trusteeship on behalf of the bereaved widow. Mr. Michael Keninedy, one of the subscribers, said it would have been more to the creditof the invisible "A. B." if, instead of throwing dirt from his dark corner at his betters, he had come boldly to the front, and helped them in their goodwork. It appears that the sum collected was £20 18s. 6d:, and not £120, as stated by A. B...
Meetings. MEETING AT HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
Meetings; MEETING AT IIOTHAM. Pursoant to an advertisement whiclh ap. peared in this journal, a meeting of rate. payers in favor of one-half the cost of pavement-being levied was hold on Mfonday ovening'at the Court IIooso Hotol. At the time appointed a large number of the bur gesses had assembled-many of them, how ever, opposed to the objects of the con venors. Councillors Carroll and Cain were alsopresent, but their presonce did not ap pear to beo a source of gratification to the convenors. Mr. Novillo, one of the con. v ors, said that beforo proceeoding to chniema, lie W~irmln, e5.., the advertisement convening the mooting, for it seemed to him that there had been some misunderstanding on the subject. The meeting had been called so as to allow all ratepayers favorable to the collection of the pavement money an apportunity to enrol themselves into committees for the purpose of nominating candidates to oppose the retiring councillors at the coming election, and other matters in con...
THE BRICKMAKERS' BANNER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
THE BRICKMAKiERS' BANNER. The subscription lists have been placed in most of the business premises in the borough, and as the time is limited for the collection of funds, we would urge on all who feel favorably disposed towards the object of purchasing the banner for the fBrickmakers' Society to subscribe libor ally. It is contemplated, we believe, to give a concert under the auspices of the Board of Management, the proceeds of which will be devoted towards the banner fund. Weo hope to learn by next week that a good round sum has been collected.
UNION CHURCH TEA MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 10 July 1874
UNION CHURCH TEA MEETING. Br Tont Jo~ns. " And laugh, and jest, and glee, and song, Did animate that soolal throe,." -OLD BALLAD. Fortified :uainst emergencies by a good dinner, Smith and I reached the Now Temperance. Hall, Queensberry street, IHotham, on Thursday evening at a quarter to seven. I have no predilection for tea meetings; certainly not, they are a necessary evil of our religious system, nothing more; but I couldn't avoid this one. After much preliminary crushing, we obtained admission to find standing room. There were five rows of tables, just one too many, and the futile efforts of stout old gentlemen, and of doable barrelled improvers, to force themselves along the nine.inch passages were most ludicrous, while any attempt at crossing resulted in a total deadlock. The choir sang grace, the feast began, and "all went merry as a marriage bell," the fun " growing fast and furious" as plate after plate departed empty and the tea sped quickly round. I should say many hlad n...
