CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Bacchus Marsh Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 August 1866
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of thLe acchus Marsh Express. Smn-Our Shire rate-collector is now going his rounds for rates, and we must either pay him or abide the consequences. I don't object to pay the rate if I have the money, but Mr. Headland will not listen to if's; and if I have not the money when he calls, I must either beg or borrow it within fourteen days, or risk being summoned for non-paymont. 1 suppose this is all right, as far as the law goes, and I must submit to it; but "puir tenant bodies, scant o' cash," find it hard enough sometimes to meet the demands of the rate-collector; and, sir, I am afraid that the members of our Council forgoet this. 1 think if thoy had a more lively sense of the "losses and crosses" incidental to the poor struggling farmers who compose the great body of the ratopayers of this Shire, they would exoercise a more rigid economy in conducting the business of the Council. I do not wish to be rcvere on these gentlemen. On the contrary, I give the...

To the Editor of the Bacchus Manlrsh Epress. Sti--I have seen two letters in the Guardian nows paper, signed "D, H." As it is pretty generally understood who is the individual indicated by those initials, I am not a little surprised that he has been so injudicious as to show himself so un worthy of his position as a professional man, and so lamentably wanting in merit as a correspondent. Without condescending to critioiso the subject of his discontent, couched as it is in terms so utterly barbarous, I take the liberty of pointing out to him that, although such silly productions as the letters referred to may sufflce to please his vanity, they are calculated to lessen the respect in which lie has hitherto boon hold by his friends. "D.II.'s" humorous disposition is very well among his asso ciates in private, but such vulgar and futile efforts to be funny will scarcely pass muster in a news paper. Trusting that "D. II,"-when in future he thinks it necessary to address the public-may, f...

UsFrUL INFOI?rMATION FOR Ul1us1 TRAVELLEnRS. We wonder, says the Home News, that travellkr do not carry with them a little bottle of perman. ganate of potass-a few drops of which would speedily purify any water. A friend of ours, whc has just returned from India, tells us that he has derived the greatest benefit from its employment In cases where the water was turbid, and tasting and smelling of decaying organic matter, the ad. dition of a few drops of the solution of the per manganate nmado it in a few minutes as clear an( sweet as spring water.

GLASS HOUSES AND "D. H." To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 August 1866
GLASS HOUSES AND "D. H." To the Editor qf the Express. Smu-There is an old but not obsolete preverb in our language which says that "those who live in glass houses should not throw stones." It has boon called to my mind by reading a letter which appeared in the Guwrdian of Saturday last, and which has booeen used by the writer as a means of casting ridicule on the 'Express, because, I suppose, the latter journal opened its columns to a commu nication from a gentleman who happened to hold views on some matters different from those hold by "D. H." Now, I do not pretend to be a judge of the matter in dispute between "D. H." and "L. S.;" but I think, sir, that the editor of the Guardian, in publishing such a production as "D. II.'s" letter of Saturday last, has given his sanction to an unwarrantable attack on a con temporary, the reason for the onslaught being, forsooth, that the letter r had beeoon accidentally omitted from the word "editor," in a letter which appeared in the Express o...
To the Editor of the Bacchus Marsh Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 August 1866
To the Editor of the Bacckua Dlarsh Express. "Now tell me all about the war, And what they scold each other for." REALLY, sir, the battle of the waterhole is likely to be a never-ending affair. The unfortunate gentleman who got the dipping, or ducking, or whatevor it was, may well say, "Save me from my friends, 'Aliquis' and 'D. H.' ;" for these doughty champions seem determined to keep him perpetu ally before the public in cold water. "Aliquis" may fall off his charger on parade some of these days, and break his neck. This is a possible con tingency. And "D. I1." and his buggy may be precipitated down one of the unprotected cuttings which embellish our roads-smashing his buggy, and, say, his right arm. But in case of either contingency being realised, you must not notice the matter. Private affairs are not within the province of newspapers, and for newspapers to notice them is absurd, and all the rest of it.-I am, sir, &o., HONI OlIT, Ballan, 6th August, 1868.

The polling com meneed at eight o'clook, but the numbers about the Court-house from that time till twelve noon were not numerous; after that, however, the farmers came trooping in from a distance, and wore eagerly hailed by the canvassers for the diffe rent candidates, who exercised thoeir persuasive powers with all the eloquence they could corm mand in favour of the man they thought the best. A good deal of speoulation was indulged in as to the result-bets being taken, notwithstanding the penaltp allacded to such quemtionable proccodings, as to who would be the coming man.
