NEWS OF THE WEEK. The annual Ploughing Match in connection with the Bacchus Marsh, Ballan, and Pentland I?lls Agriculturdal and Pastoral Society, will take plhce on Thursday next, at Myrniong. We have before alluded to this matter, and need only express the hope that the match day may prove as genial a one as every day during the past week has boon. Full particulars of everything connected with the match will be found in an advertisement. Mr. Ryan, of the Plough Inn, Myrniong, will cater for the spectators, and the guests of the Society.

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 June 1867

BALLAN. (FROM OUR CORnESPONDENT.) NAPOLEON TIIE FIRST Was Wont to say that there was not such a word in his lan lnuage as "impossible." Whilst Cardinal ichelion said to his courier " Be firm, and do your duty, boy, And we'll not fail." This grand faith: of everything being possible, is the great secret of most human success. "I cannot," never did anything; but "Iwill," has performed prodigies, , And I an: quite convinced'- mn:self:that- what a man : or a community-wills, cani be accomplished if the right path is, only taken which l lads to the ngoal of their desire. -And the listory of B-allan for the lost two: years proves this most unmistakably. Bilt a fbw months ago, "Job Snarl," 'and' a small band of dismal croakers, were denionstrating, by the- "rule of thunmb," that Farmenrs' Societies, Plouighino 1Matohes, or :a Bank could iot be establishec, or footpaths formed. Week iafter week, as thsoe institutions wore established, and our highllwnvs improved, the grounds of their superc...

NORTH COUNTRY WEDDING CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 June 1867

3ORTII COUNTRY WEDDING CUSTOMS. TE 10 northern counties of England have their own exclusively local wedding customs,. I am informed, by the Rev. J. BIarmby, that a wedding in the dales of Yorkshire is indeed a thing to sce ; that nothing can be imagined comparable to it in wildness and obstreperous mirth. The bride and bridegroom may pos sibly be a little subdued, but his friends are like men bereft of reason. They career round the bridal party like Arabs of the desort, galloping over ground on which, in cooler moments, they would hesitate even to walk a horse-shouting all the time, and firing volleys from the guns they carry with them. Next they will dash along the road in advance of the party, carrying the whisky-bottle, and compelling overy one they meet to pledge the newly-married pair. " O)ne can guess," ho adds, " what the Border mosstroopers were, by seeing the ])aleiunen at a iwedding." ]u rural parts, too, of thei county of ])urham, the bridal party is e,?orted to church ?'...

An inquest was held by Dr. Rao, coronor, at Barker's Bank Hotel, on 3rd June, on the body of William Ward, a baker, who had committed suicide on the day previous by hanging himself. A jury being empanelled, the first witness called   was Mr. E. Baber, storekeeper, Red Hill. He   stated that deceased had been in his employ as a baker for the period of two years and four months.

ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 June 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE original poetry which we gave last week met with considerable approval. We have now the pleasure of laying before our readers one of a number of pieces of poetry written by a gentle- man well-known to some of the residents in this district, where he was some years ago located. It was written many years ago, but has never been published. The author is now in a distant colony. MY BIRTHDAY,   Another year is past and dead And eight and twenty summer's fled— Gone, no'or to be recalled again ! No thrill of pleasure, hour of pain, Of byegone days will glad or grieve; And when this weary world I leave What scene of all now past and gone Can I without regret think on ! Say, Memory, say, for Autumn's nigh— Too swiftly now the seasons fly. Say, Memory, say, for Autumn's nigh— Too swiftly now the seasons fly ! My Spring of life dawned brightly gay— Gave promise of a happier day Than now appears with clouds to chide Each hour, each moment, misapplied; My Summer...

Fat Cattle: Supply this week was most fortunately a light-ono; we are, therefore, in hope of oui manrkoe again rocovering its usual steady character, as tho number of really good cattle to comed forward for next throe months are not in oxcess. It is necessary, however, when practicable, that holders give timely notice to their agents of their intentions, so as to prevent, from time to timo, overcrowding.

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 June 1867

AGRIOULTURAL, r]OM TIIHE "ECONOMIST," JUNE 7. Tun wheats which are well up, if not; previously rolled, may be rolled now. In such an extraordinary growing season there will be manny forward paddocks inclined to lie, if not laid already; foeding off' such paddocks with sheep, if' done quickly, and the ground pretty firm, will benefit them. It is better to put on a large flock at once, so that the crop may te speedily consumed, than to have a fow animals on, which would only partially accomplish the object. In the colder dis tricts, wheat sowing is still going on. Farmers will find white Tuscan and Algerian as good late wheats as any ; but they should bear in mind that the later they aeo the more seed will be required per acre, and the land ought to be in very fine tilth. In England, when we sowed "A pril wheat," we treated the land as if for malting barley; got it very fine, and drilled it in. If sown in June or 'uly, not less than two and a half bushels slould be put on per acre.o, ...
