SACRED CONCERT .T BRUNS WICK.

BRUNSWICK, CHORAL UNION. A special meeting of the Brunswick Choral Union was held on Tuesday oven. ing, at the Brunswick 1?6ohanics' Insti. tuto, for the purpose of appointing a con. ductor, vice Mir. J. Eggloston, resigned. Mr. Connor, of Coburg, was asked to fill the vacancy, but dechned.

Before separating, aheartyvote of thanks was tendered to MIr. Eggloston, on the motion of the librarian, ir.

ANNUAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 17 July 1874
ANNUAL TMUNICIPAL ELECTION. The elections to take place next month appear to be awakening some attention as the time for nomination draws nigh. We understand that it is likely there: will be four sdats vacant in the Brunswick Coun cil, and several names have been men tioned, as probable candidates. We are informed that AIr. J. W.

Original Poetry. WRECK OF THE "BRITISH ADMIRAL." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 17 July 1874
Original Poetry. I WRECK OF TilE " BRITISII ADMIRAL." Fieroa were the raging billows, And pitch dark the stormy night, e~ WaVc the " British Admiral" struck heavily, And soon for ever was lost to sightJ Several mon a light boat did launch, To escape a too certain doom; But the boat capsizod, and they sank : Far beneath the white onrl'd foam. I Tho mariners were brave and bold, In this heart rending time of need,, For well they know she could not hold, iBut must soon sink below the weed. Alas, it is a horrid tale, .:" To hear their triends relate : How all on deck, stood sick and pale And wept whilst thinking of their fate. S'd are our hearts, when we reflect That on her first trip'to our land, No loes than four score souls are wre k'd And she luite burled in the sand. The shore is strewed with decaying forms, That once were happy, loved, and gay ; But now they've left this world of stkrms, And soared to mansions far away. Thnus snk a gallant ship and crow, When landing on their nati...
BRUNSWICK BOROUGH LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 17 July 1874
BRTUNtVICK BOROUGH LOAN. -It'has been freely montionsal-w.it?li tho past few days that the proposed loin for public works in Brunswiek, has: not been Iegally advertised. Perhaps some of the Councillors, or the Town Clerk, will place the matter clearly before our readers to remove any doubt on the subject. The statement is that the requirements of the Borough Statute have not been complied with in indicating the streets to be drained, and the several amounts to: be spent on kerbing and channelling, and other works, together with the places where such outlay from the loan fund is to take place. Is is to be regretted if there is any technical or other difficulty in the way of floating the loan, or at least placing the question fairly before the burgeases at the coming election.
