Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 10 November 1870
The annual meeting of the Rilmore Bo. rough Council will be held at noon on Tuesday next, when the election of Mayor for t:e ensuing year will take place. Wo have not yet heard who are likely to be the candidates for the office, but the probability is that the position will not be contested, and that MIr Fynn, who filled the mayoral chair for the past year with credit to himself and to the no small advantage of the town, will be re-elected, The late heavy floods at Seymour com pelled the snakes in that locality to leave their usual hiding places and seek abodes where they would not be exposed to the action of the water. The reptiles have taken possession of some of the buildings. and the people are now more afraid of them than they were of the flood. A large snake was kiiled during the past week in the bar of the Prince of Wales Hotel The subject of forming a shire in this dis trict by the amalgamation of several of the small bodies already in existence will be dis cussed totday at ...

uitivocre orn ggtoaa PUBLISHED THURSDAY MIORNING. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10,. 1870. TnE advisability or otherwise of forming: a Shire in the neighborhood is a matter to be discussed to.day at a conference of delegates from the neighboring boards-invited by the Willowmavin Board-to which body is due any credit attached, to the initiation of the movement-to be held in the Kimnore Council Chambers. Though some of the local bodies have signified their disinclina tion to take part in the proceedings, and are desirous of remaining as they are at present, still we are under the imprcssion that there can scarcely be two opinions as to the great advantages that would accrue from unity of action in local government, as well as in most other matters, and can at tribute a refusal to join in the formation of a shire not so much to the matter being wrong in principle as to the fact that people caring not for. each others' company would be brought in contact with one another. Such a feeling as this, h...

THE FALL OF NAPOLEON li. ' Where'er he turne'.he meets a straneer' eye; IIi suppliants soo, n him, and Lie folld a a fly." Such is the fate of Napoleon III; and, if things do not take a great change, such will be the fate, before the lapse of many months, of other sovereigns. The thick mist, which has so long hung before the eyes of most of the people of Europe, is now ?epidly dissolvo ing.

TIIE DINGO FRATERNITY. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] During the latter portion of the past week quite a commotion was created in Kilmore, when it oozed out that a number of ancient dingos, whose energies have long lain dor= mant, were about to assemble in one of our principal thoroughfires, for the purpose of discussing matters peculiar to their kind matters of grave importance to them at the present moment. About two hours after the appointed time one or two ill-looking dingos put in appearance, and, after canvas sing the immediate neighbourhood, the num. ber was increased to six or eight, amongst whom were those who chought themselves the leading animals of the district. A chairman having been appointed, an old mastiff, who had evidently seen some rough service during his time, was appointed sentry, with full power to intercept any stragglers and induce them, by argument or main force, to take part in the proceedines. .Jreliminaries having been arranged, a mangy.looking cur, with a coun...
