ADVANCEMENT OF HEIDELBERG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
ADVANCEMENT OF IIEIDEL BERG. Sir-I was very pleased to see thal one of the residents of this district has mooted the matter of obtaining a loan for the pub lic works. Should the Local Government Act become law, and there is every lilkeli hood that it will, the Shire of IIHeidelberg will possess far greater power than hitherto; and in my opinion o1ne of the first steps should be to obtain a loan of money in order to make improvements which it is impossible our limited means will permit us .at present to indulge in. I quite agree with your correspondent that Ieidelborg possesses natural attrac tions which should lit it to become at no distant date one of the most popular suburbs of Melbourne; but, Sir, I am sorry to say, that unless greater enorgy is infused into the local Couneil, and it assumes to act for the whole of the district, and not for the forwarding of the nterests of a particular few, this will not come to pass for many years. I hope with your permission, to revert to tLi ...

Iuunt, Muss.n, and Vincent, will take place on the second Thursday in August, the 13th proximo. Mr. William Hunt is chairman, to which position> he. was elected by the unanimous vote of his colleagues at the annual meeoting in November last. IIoe has proved himself attentive, and has shown much interestin local affairs during his term of office, and although it has beoon remarked that he has at times shown too much leniency, still, this can only be accounted for by the disposition of certain members to take advantage of their chairman's good nature and suavity of manner. Mr. John Mdissen is one of the members for the BEat Subdivision, and has had his term of office :shortened by twelve months through the resignation of MIr. Rea, who had to retire in April last, owing to having sold his property, and thereby pakted with his q...

COBURG AS A BOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
COBURG AS A 3BOROUGHI. hole inhabitants of Coburg ought to feel gratified to find that they have those amongst thoem who are on the alert to avert anything calculated to damage their interests, and retard the progress of the district; and, although nothing definite resulted from the public meeting, held at the Board-room on the 10th inst., still it was patent to all that some action should be taken without delay to secure such alterations in the proposed "Local (Go vernmhent Act, 1874' as will prevent por manent injury to the locality. There can beo no doubt, as was pointed out at the meeting referred to, that the intention of the Government is to abolish road districts as they at present exist, and presuming that such will ultimately be the case, the question for consideration is--what willt be the best means to adopt--whether the inhabitants would be promoting.their in terests by taking the necessary prelimi naries to form theirdistrictinto a borough under the proposed act, or all...

Local Melange. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
Local Melange, An application was made on Wednesday to the Minister of Railways by a deputa tion from tho Templestowe Shire Council, that an alteration might be made in a clause in the Local GovernmontBill, which provided that the Shire of Templestowre should be joined as a riding to the Heidel. berg shire. The deputation pointed out that both in area and the revenue raised, the Templestowe shire was equal to the Heidelberg shire. They likewise con tended that the clause was unfair in its operation, as it provided that Templestowe should only be represented by three mom bors, whereas Heidelberg would return six members. Mr. Gillies promised to make a memorandum on the subject, in order that the matter might receive consideration. Not for a length of time has play been so brisk or the attendance of the Carlton H-Iandball Court so good as on Saturday. Of the numerous well-contested matches which took place during the day, the following two deserve especial notice: Messrs. Ireland and ...
REV. MR. KELLY'S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
REV,. MR. KELLY'S LECTURE. The Rev. Father Kelly, S J., is an nounced to deliver a lecture in the Roman Catholic Church, Victoria street, North Melbourne, on Mlonday evening. The rev. lecturer will, no doubt, give his hearers a graphic description of the state of Europo in the fifteenth century-the era of the Reformation. Hle cannot fail to allude to the intrigues of the Spanish, English; French, and Scottish Courts, because all those were hotbeds of religious intolerance, profound dissimulation, and rovolting hypocrisy; and all the principal royal personages, such as Philip of Spain, Elizabeth of England, Francis and Cathbrine doMedicis of France; and last, but not least, Mary Queen of Scots, took part.in the momentous questions of public importance at issue at that time. The case and facility witl which the rev. gentleman can handle the subject upon whlich he proposes to lecture, from the knowledge which he possesses as a careful student of history, cannot fail to render the lectu...

CONCERT IN COBURG. The annual concert, in aid of the Mel bourne Hospital, took place in the Orderly Room, Coburg, on Friday, the 24th inst., under the patronage of the Friendly Societies, namely-the Rechabites, the Oddfellows, St. Patrick, and the Druids. The large room was well filled, which it was thought must have included from five to six hundred. The chair was oc cupied by G. B. Wilson, who in a short, but appropriate speech, introduced the object of the meeting. He said in the course of his remarks, he was glad to see the members of all denominations coming forward to assist in so praiseworthy an object; and he trusted that on all future occasions the same good feelings would be shown, by responding to the call of charity. There were several of the most distinguished amateur performers in the district, who kindly gave their services on the occasion. Amongst those who added to the amusement of the evening were the Misses Buzaglo, who are too well known in the district as vocali...

SCENES IN THE HOTHAM COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
SCENES IN THE IIOTIIAM COUNCIL. Councillors Laurens, 'Carroll' and the Mayjor participated in a variety of little "scenes" on Monday ovehing at the Heotham Council mooting. WVhonever Councillor Carroll ventured to edge in a word, Councillor Laurens would call him to order, when .Councillor Carroll would be compelled to sit ,down, very much to his chagrin. Then, again, the Mayor made assertions which wore called into question by the redoubtable Coun cillor Laurens, who, in an excited tone, demanded of his Worship if. ho would "stake his reputation" on the accuracy of his statements. This led to another "battle of. the o.tongue,".. which. lasted pretty nearly an hour. During the oven irg the Mayor threatened to hnvo Coun cillor Laurens removed, upon which the latter gentleman dared his TWorship to put his threat into exeoution at his peril. The burgesses in the body of the hall ap. peared to enjoy the fun immensely. 'hose little amenities between the coun cillors must make municipal l...
Original Poetry. ADVICE FOR YOUTH [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
Original Poetry. ADVICE FOIL YOUTII Youth leac n of the flowery tribe The folly of living in pride ; To-day the bud, to-mnorrow blor, Thou pine and die 'neath ifrn6 and enow. Tihe blushing rose and lilly fair, And sweot violet that so nut the air, The cowslip aud sunflower tall, And modest daisy neat and small, Are emblems of the reakless youth, Dress'd each day in a gaudy suit; lRvelling in each gay ball room, And fast journeying to his tomb. Flowers whoe nipe by frost or snow, NJ lorer docs their clothing glow, But withering, drop their rairnu?ce gay, Which they pult on ir sunny .Iay.

COUNCILLOR CAINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 31 July 1874
COUNCILLOR CAINE. At the meeting of the Hotham Council on MIonday evening last, the notice of motion standing in Councillor Caino's name was postponed, consequent upon the ruling of the Mayor that the recom mendation of the Public Works Com mitteo was out of order in asking for the outlay of £1051 7s. 8d. The motion of Councillor Caine, if carried, would have been of great convenience to the residents. It was as follows:--"That this Council take immediate proceedings, according to paragraph 8, part 1, of the 12th Schedule of the Borough Statute to cause the names "of streets in' this borough to be placed at the ends and intersections of all streets, except whore the names of streets are fixed at present." This is much needed. IHotham is the only exception, we believe, to the other boroughs around Melbourne in this respdct. Omitting the leading thoroughfares, it is almost impossible to find out the numerous streets in the borough, for the simple reason that there are no painted signs...
