BRAfUXHOLME. (motx OJn owM OnauconroDENT.) Novoember ]0, 1876, This has been an eventful week to Br:nxholme. On Sunday last the Revy H. Cole preached the first sermon in the New Primitive Methodist Chapel. The building is a credit to the denomination, and an ornament to the township. The building is of brick with iron roof, thirty by forty feet outside, and fourteen feet from floor to ceiling, there are three windows on each side, each window one sheet of ground glass, set in cement, and forming a very nice contrast to the briek.

IN LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 17 November 1876

IN LOVE. When a young man falls deeply il love the acquisition of the object of his affection becomes to him the chief object of his existence-the first ro. quisite to his happiness. Perhaps, for the first time in his life, heo begins to scan himself, to consider carefully his own imential Ilsd moral condition, and to ask of himself seriously, the very momnctous question-' Who and what aml I?' The. anllsswer which self-exnmination compels him candidly to give is not always satisfactory. lie is compelled to reflect that but for misspent time and neglected opportunities for im. pIrovemeut hie might have been far different from what he is, and far better. If heo happen to have rivals-and lwhat lover ever yet was without rivals, either real or imaginary, and L, S Son. ... w.?.? i.. mue.,o p|urpuse. -then he involuntarily turns to com. pirisons between himself and them; and he laments that greater industry andt greater effort on his part, drilng his previous life had not made amends for ...

OUR PARIS LETTER. Paris, 31st August. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 17 November 1876

OUB, PARIS LETTER. (eIOM OUR OWN COBRBESPONDENT.) Pads, 31st August. it would be at this moment difficult to express an opinion on the parliamentary sesalon which has just terminated. In regarding solely the results acquired and the general features of the home policy, a very sensible relief is already experienced. The Chamber of Deputies is excellent; far better certainly than we thought at their first etatting. Three years of moral order, crowned by the adminstrative dictatorship of a violent and shortsighted man, hi. Buffet, might have causnned Irreparable injury. Every reason existed for believing that universal suffrage, still young and not setre of itself, might badly sustain the severe trial. People said: Of two things on': either it will be terrorised, that is to say, it will he ready to submit to any affront, or it will revolt, and anger will dictate to it extreme measures. Our brave country, rendered prudent by its misfortunes, has avoided those two shoasl; it repulsed wit...

HARROW. November 14, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 17 November 1876

H ARROW. (same oURa owN cOnasBPODolrt.) November 14, 1870. The quantity of wool passing through here this year en route for Portland is small indeed when compared with what passed nst year for shipment there. The reason of this is, as most people are aware, the facilities afforded by the Narracoorte rail way for shipping wool and all kinds of colonial produce from the ports of South Australia. If the Portland people had only been a little more on the alert in the pset this might have been In a great measure prevented; however, it is never too late to mend. The railway to Hamil ton is only one step in the right direction, and others must follow quickly if Port land is to make that progress in the future which she is entitled to. It is of no use havinlg a filat-class harbour there if produce cannot be taken to it at a lees cost and in a shartee time than formerly. Our race committee have at least arranged a programme for New Year's Day. and have, I think, been more noo. oessful this t...
