OPENING OF THE GREAT EXHIBITION AT PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 June 1867
OPENING OF TIIE GREAT EXIII IBITION AT PARIS. Tnn unceremonious openingll, on 1st April, created very little stir in Paris, and the approaches to the building were never less crowded. Along the road leading from the Pont de Jona, where the Emperor and Empress wore to pass, there were thick groups of people ; but the fotways weore almost deserted compared with what they have been when admissions wore hitherto given freely. Two o'clock was the hour fixed for the arrival of the Tmpcrial liuily, and almost to the very second the Emperor and Empress alighted at the entrance of the Vestibulo. They camo to the building in the private style in which they, as a rule, drive about Paris, in an open carriage and four. Following that of the :Emperor were carriages of the Prince of Orange, the Count of Flanders, and the Baron James Rothschild. Everywhere the Imperial cordte/ was received with marks of theo most profound deferenco and respect, but there was very little cheer ing. A few stray cries...

SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1867. TIA'r the theoretical opinions of even clover meon as to the effect likely to be produced by the passing of ail Act of Parliament bearing on 'a'givon question are sometimes not con firmed by fhots brought to light by the practical workifig of the law, is a statement that will suiprise no one, and few, in this matter-of-fahot ago, will be disposed to gainsay it. The Local Government Act just now occurs to 'us to be one of those which can scarcely be said to have answerecd the expec tations of mniany of those who advocated the measure during its passago through the Legislature;' at least, in some respects; It ,will, no doubt, be remembered' by those of our readers who took an interest in the passing of the Act in question, that one of the reasons assigned for making a distinction in the bodies which exist under its provisions, was that underi the old Act it was alleged that some of the Road Districts were small in area, and consequently very often possessed sm...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 June 1867
NEWS OF THE WEEK, A mild agitation is on foot in Bacchus Muarah to obtain additional postal communication with Melbourne. That the present altogether inadequate postal service should have been quietly endured so long is a matter of great surprise. This township is (as we some months ago pointed out), placed in an unfavourablo position by having no telegraphio communication with Melbourne, and therefore it should be recompensed for this loss by having at least two mails to and from Melbourno daily, with the auditional convenience, too, of a letter carrier. Two coaches leave for the metropolis daily, which in itself is a proof that a second mail is required, and that it could be carried at but a small oxponse to the Government. It is a matter of history that at one time those coaches carried a mail oach, much to the joy of the Marsh lioegos, hnd much to their sorrow and indignation was it when we wore placed a stop backwards by being reduced to the present unsatisfactory system of one...

ROAD TO BARRY'S REEF. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 June 1867
ROAD TO BARRY'S REEF, To the Editor cf the Express. SIR-- I quite agree with the "Voice from Wight- man's Gully" as to the road in question being in a most dangerous state, and so narrow that a horse must keep straight up the centre, for there is no room for it to diverge either to the right or to the left. For my own part, I am often afraid of being capsizecd over the hill. If the Council would only carry out the suggestions of your correspondent, it would prevent a great deal of exertion on my part, for I could then rest myself against the logs, if they were firmly fixed. I know that the Council is prompt in attending to such matters when once brought under their notice, so I console myself that I will soon be able to have a spell when ascending the Barry Reef Road.

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 June 1867
BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) A CONSIDERABLE, length of time has elapsed since &nbsp; Blackwood and its mining prospects found a prominent record in your columns, and since that period many changes have taken place in our internal affairs, and our position as a mining district has certainly advanced to a larger stage of development. I derive considerable gratification from the fact of being able to state that our mineral resources are as yet in a state of infancy, for each day proves beyond a doubt that we are progressive. Many changes have taken place, as I have already stated, and no doubt can exist in regard to Old King Time having laid his icy finger on ourselves, and leaving his firmly stamped impress behind. Time rushes ever onward, like a mighty avalanche, enveloping all barriers to its progress in that iron grasp which has ere now de- stroyed nations, crumbled dynasties, and torn from us the dear friends that we have loved through joy and affliction. Yes, it o...
ORGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 15 June 1867
ORIGINAL POETRY. The author of the piece of poetry which we gave last week also wrote the following verses. On the manuscript before us they are stated to be "an experiment to write forty consecutive lines, on the first subject that offers, within the hour. Lost the match by seven minutes." LITTLE MARY. Yon moss grown ruin tells a wondrous tale, Of feuds long stilled and woman's feeble wail Yon battle field a passing thought may claim How shortlived glory, and how fickle fame ; But the real study to improve the mind, And teach the worldly heart to love its kind To con a lesson high and curb the passions wild Man, lordly man, may learn it from a child. Aye, thee, Mary. Watch but a minute, then, the changeful play Of smiles and shadows, like an April day, That flit across thy little speaking face; [trace; Now sunshine beams--now tears scarce leave a Say, can our boasted manhood's pleasures leave So pure a feeling, or find less to grieve ? Say, can man's sorrows pain him less than thin...
BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 June 1867
BALLAN, (EnoM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Sosir four months ago, Senior-constable Walsh©, of Ballan, saw in the Government Ga:ette that a warrant had been issued by the Daylesford Bench for the arrest of a well-known Bullarook Ranger for horse stealing. The man glories in a long line of aliases. "Little Joe," alias " Austin's Joe," alias "Joe the Jockey." It so happened that Mr. Walshe had made Joseph's acquaintance a long time back, when hunting a particular class of game which hides in the douse scrub of that forest. So " Little Joe" was at once dotted down in Mr. Walshe's private memorandum, under the head of, "York, you are wanted." But that want was never supplied until Wednesday, the 12th instant, when, by chance, the worthy constable dropped into the Royal Mail Hotel, and, at the same time, dropped upon all the aliases rolled into one, and refreshing themselves with a "long drink" of Warrenheip. When Mr. Walshe last saw "Little Joe," his face was as smooth and soft-looking as the "ti...

BALLAN SHIRE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 June 1867
BALLAN SHIRE COUNCIL, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10. P sxsENT--Councillor Duncan, in the chair; Coun cillors Osborne, Graham, Short, and Dugald. Mr. Kelly, the Shire Engineer, acted as Secretary, in consequence of the illness of Mr. R. IH. Young.) Mr. Headland's letter, which took the form of a petition to the Council, was then read. It stated that the petitioner had been Revenue Officer and Collector to the Shiro for six years, during which time he had endeavoured to perform his duties efficiently, and complained that, after doing the heaviest part of the work for the season, the Council had reduced his salary to £80, a sum for which he considered it impossible to faithfully and honestly discharge the duties; he therefore asked that it be increased. Councillor Duncan: I think the application for an increase of salary premature on the part of Mr. Headland. We cannot do anything in the matter until the term of Mr. Headland's appointment expires. He was backed up in this opinion by an articlo in...
