A.G R I CU-LT UR AL,. rlno T I[u" EONOMIST," JUNE 21. TIIc sowing scason is nearly over now in those districts lying in high latitudes, and which are generally six wooks or two months later than they are this year. The rains and succeeding genial. weather have brought the young crops very forward, especially in the Geelong district and round about the Bar. rabool Hills. The farmers are reported to be large holders of whoat in the distriots just namod. They are anticipating higher rates for their grain than have been yet realised, and we hope they will not be disappointed, In the Smonaton district, although not late in their operations, the farmers have a goodly breadth of land yoet to sow. The crops already up in this, Springhill, and tihe Bullarook districts have a remarkably hoalthy appearanco. The farmers confine their atton. tion solely to wheat and oats.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1807. PROBABLY the present Session of Parliament has been the least creditable one to our legis lators which has been hold since the passing of the Constitution Act. Not only has time boen wasted, but it has been spent in disputes of so paltry a character as to lead many thinkling mon to regard this colony as too young to be entrusted with a Parliament at all. At one time it was the custom to attribute the backslidings of members to the Iict that they were elected by manhood suffrage, but the present Session has shown us gentlemen worthy of being the repro sentatives of less democratic constituencies than those of this colony, engaging in per sonal and profitless discussions to such a degree as to warrant the belief that there really was no business for them to do as legislators, and consequently their idle hands had found mischief to do. But how different is the real state of the colony's statute book. Instead of our laws being perfect, there is scarcely one but ...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK. Our Parliamentary report shows that there is little probability of the Bacohus Marsh scheme of water supply being carried out for some time to come. The Government has candidly acknow loedged that until the Yan Yean waterworks are sold, there is no possibility of doing more than to comploto the survey of the soveral schemes of water supply, of which this district is one centre, and Beooehworth and some other towns the centres of others.

CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] EXPLANATION. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

0ORREPONDENC E, [CYW are not responsible for the opinions pr'csed by our correspondentse,] EXPLANATION. To the Editor of tthe Express DnAn Sin-?Ir, Harbord .has informed me that it is the public impression that my letter, which appeared in your last issue, was written with tho intention of casting ridicule on a letter of his in a previous issue of the Guardian relative to a change of name for this place, and also as an act of personal discourtesy to him, Now, Sir, I merely wrote that letter in the hope of remedying a public nuisance, and had not the slightest intention of wounding Mr. Harbord's feelings, or casting ridicule on his subgestiol. The obnoxious paragraph was written in theo spirit of the old fable of "Jupiter and the Waggoner." Before we go abroad for assistance to make this village all that its inhabitants would wish to have it, would it not be as well to do what we can ourselves, even if that be only as trifling a matter as making our footpaths fit for walking on in al...

WILDE'S ELECTRIC MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

WxnLD's ELECTmCO MAcmITU.-A sugar-reflhing firm in Whitechapel is setting up one of Wilde's extraordinary electric machines on their promises, for the bleaching of sugar. Wilde's machine has recently been exhibitcd to the Royal Society at Burlington House, It is worked by a 15-horse power steam-engine, and )possesscswonderfulpower. The form is mingneto-.lectric; and it has coils 4 feet high and 10 inches thick, containing 14 cwt, of copper wire. The armature rotates 15,000 times in a minute. The intensity of the light produced by this machine is something almost appalling. It required, like the sun, to be gazed at throug'h coloured glasses. By means of lenses the meore rays of light set fire to paper, and its heat could be felt fifty yards off. It molted the refractory platinum as if it were lead! Various uses for it are being suggested. The total cost of its light is said not to exceed Gd. or 8d. an hour, cost of the machine itself included. The same sort of machine is used in Manc...

Now, Sir, I beg, through your columns, to inquire what advantages are to be gained by such expenditure? Can any of the leading members of that society inform ime, and the public generally, whether the land ploughed by the first prize plougman will grow more crop than the land ploughed by the second prize ploughman P or whether the land ploughed by the prize plough. man will grow more crop than the worst ploughed land in the paddock Of course, assuming such benefits are not derived from the quality of the land. I consider that spending the money in such a manner as holding ploughing matches is sheer waste of money. I, however, trust that some one will be able to enlighton me on ...

GISBORNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

GISBORNE. (FnOMi OUR COR11ESPONDEN'T.) Tnll morning of our Champion Ploughing Match was ushered in raw and foggy, making s dronead a rj)petition of the incessant rain of the two previous days. Our fear, and the fog, wore, however, alike dissipated by a glorious warm sun which made the day thoroughly enjoyable. It was half-past nine bfore entries were made and places drawn for; and after the usual half-hour for setting poles, the sound of the boll at ton a.m. announced the hour of starting. In Class A twonty-two, and in Class 13 fourteen, making in all six and thirty good men and true, made a beginning, a umnler which would have beeoon much increasedl but for the previous boisterous weatler, and sundry m1inor acci lents. On the ground being turned up, it was found to be so saturated with rain as to seriously damage the look of the work, and to disgust some whose lots chanced to lie flatter than others. The ends of the lands, too, became such a sea of mud as to make the task very unpl...

A COMPLAINT. To the Editor of the Express. Sin-Mr. Bindun, the Minister of Justice, has taken a course in the right direction, by reducing the number of useless stipendiary magistrates; and I hope he will not stop there, but also look to the state of Clerks of Petty Sessions. lie has only to look to (Gisborno to find a case requiring his serious attention. Herc, upwards of £400 are given for services that could be more satisfactorily performed for half the money. The duties of this functionary do not occupY his time more than thirty-six hours in the month. His non-attendance at his office, which causes great inconvenience and expense to the public, as well as delay in obtaining justice, is also a nmatter which requires the speedy and serious attention of the Minister of Justice. Neither do I think that civility is interdicted by the Minister of Justice on the part of those under his jurisdiction. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, June 18, 1867.
