lJxatndna & " a c tandard a PUnLIEU3D EVERY SATURDAY C ft sxcrLImsxon.' p SATURDAY, 7TH SEPTEMBER. A PanusAL of the recently issued Edu cation report for the year 1877-8 affords material for n oonsiderableamount of re floction upon the working of the Acr, and on the whole the conclusions to be deduced therefrom can hardly fail to give satisfaction to the well-wishers of our national system of instruction. We must expect, of course, a considerable amount of cavilling and fault-finding on the part of opponents to the leading prinoiples upon which it is based, and probably the greater amount of success achieved by the Act the more would it give rise to criticism of the kind indi cated. The very success of the Act is with its opponents its most grievous fault, and perhaps nothing is so likely to arouse or intensify animosity amongst these than the proofs furnished by the report that the system is accomplishing its mission, and gradually, but firmly, establishing itself as a vast...

TESTIMONIAL TO MR WALTER MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 7 September 1878

TESTIMONIAL TO MR WALTER MOON. A number of ladies and gentlemen essembled at the Alexandra Shire Council Chambers yesterday for the purpose of presenting Mr Walter G. Moon with an address and a purse of sovereigns on the eve of his departure from Alexandra as a mark of the per sonal esteem in which he is held and in recognition of his varied abilities and general assistance rendered in connec tion with matters of public interest in this district. The Rev. Mr Hutchin- son, B.A, read the address, which we subjoin, and said he felt very much pleasure in being chosen to do so and to ask his acceptance of the accompany- ing handsome purse of sovereigns as some expressions of the sentiments en tertained by his friends of Alexandra of the services rendered by Mr Moon to St. John's choir as well as to the public generally. Mr Moon was a young man who was a general favorite with all, and much regret was felt and expressed at his leaving, even for a time, and his conduct had met with the appr...

What is More Common or Distrossing than a Bilions Attack ? Who is not familiar with the well known symptoms, Oppression across the Stomnach and Chest, low Spirits, Rlestlesaness, GlOoominess of Mind, Weariness, Dull Ilendanche, Dirty, Greasy Appearance of the Skin, Yellow Tingo of the Whit, ol the Eyes, Loss of Appetit?, and Costiveness ? Few, indeed, of the more ordinary ills of life are more widely prevalent than these Bilious Disorders, and yet they many readily be got rid of by using Dr Jayne's Sanatlve Pills, by whose operation the Liver will be rapidly restored to healthy action, the vitiated secretions of the stomach changed, all costiveness removed, and tih whole system assisted in recovering its normal condition.

(7o the Editor of the Standard.) Sin,-Thoe letter signed " A.B. the Second,'" in the last issue of your journal, certainly in my opinion went much too far. It has come to my knowledge, that from some cause or other Mr Moon, the secretary for the hospital, did not deliver a letter that was ordered to be written to Mr A. Hamea, intimating that the committee would be glad of that gentleman's assistance in carrying out the concert, until two days before the date of the performance, and which letter should have been sent on the 14th August; thus showing most unmis takably the "great" interest he takes in the welfare of the charity from which he draws his salary of £20 a year, and for what P just simply intimating to the members of the committee the date of their monthly meetings. Whether he is the writer of the letter in question or not, is no matter, but overy body knows the "down" he has upon Mr Hames, as he takes every possible opportunity of expressing it. If Mr H. made a slight mist...

THlE LATE BOARD OF ADVICE ELECTION. (To the Editor of the Standard,) Sn,--I beg most emphatically to protest against the manner in which Mr Scale, who was defeated at the last election, spoke of the eletoors in his speech at the declation of the poll. He is reported to have said that " A great many who voted did so because they were asked and irrespective of the merits of the candidates." bow, Sir, this I econ sider is unjust and unfair to every elector in the district, as I am certain there is not one who does not vote conscientiously and for the candidate he considers best. Although, per sonally, I am no friend of Mr Gale, still I have known him for several years to be con nected with the leading metropolitan and other journals; and as lhe also possesses a fair amount of ability, I think the ratepayers did the correct thing in placing him at the head of the poll. In conclusion, Sir, I have only to add that I am glad to see all those whom your powerful journal supported in tile rec...

Polite, affable, and essentially davoid of all approach to snobbery, as well as possessing and carrying out very fairly the public attributes of a leader of society, he managed during the former part of his career to secure the goodwill and approbation of almost the entire community, and had not the political troubles which occurred at the commencement of the present year necessitated his acting upon his own judgment in more weighty matters, he would doubtless still have enjoyed the undivided good opinion of the people of Victoria.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 14 September 1878

MELBOURNE LETT ER. (PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDRNT.) The prospects of floating the pro posed five million loan are by no means rosy. A telegram has just boon re ceived by the ,Associated Banks, stating that alarm has been taken on the Stock Exchange at the large amounts which the colonies contemplate borrowing, and that any large operation just now would involve heavy loss, if not finan cial discredit. The banks have since held a mooting on the matter, when it was deooided, should the Government ask their advice, that the loan he ro strioted to two and a half millions. 'Theo Ministry, however, do not seem inclined to limit themselves to this amonnt, and a loan bill for five millions has boon introduced, the interest pay able being raised from 4 to 4J per cent. Of course this can only improve the price of the debentures by the Hiber nian expedient of lengthening a blanket by cutting a piece off the top and sow ing it on to the bottom, and the spontaneous raising of the interest is apt to...
