No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 3 March 1876
IT appears tolerably clear, from recent disclosures made by witnesses who have given evidence before the Board ap pointed to inquire into the working of the Kew Lunatic Asylum, that the sum of £900 per annum, which is paid by the country for fees to the official Visitors of our Insane Asylums, is money ill-spent. If these gentlemen had performed their duties in a proper manner, it would have been simply impossible for the abuses, which have been prevalent in the Kew Asylum for such a long period, to have existed. It is of the utmost importance that a watchful supervision should be exer cised over the treatment of the poor beings who are unfortunately deprived of the light of reason. Sufficient has been already brought to light during the present enquiry to satisfy the public mind that there are a number of atten dants now employed at the Kew Asylum who are totally unfitted for looking after insane persons. Mr. J. T. SmITI, who is one of the Visitors, remarked in the Assembly on Tues...

SUCCESSFUL RESULT OF FISH' A CCLIJ ATISA TION 1N COLA C. It is with considerable satisfaction that we are enabled to chronicle the successful result of the experiment which had for its object the acclimatisation of fish in Lake Colac and various sh eets of water in the district. It is now 18 years since the first attempt was made to stock the lake with' fish, for in the year 18S'5, 32 Murray cod, 17 bream, and 10 MIurra:m perch were placed in the lake. In 1864 a Murray perch, weighing 41 lbs., was obtaib ed near the outlet of the lake at Mr. Calve rt's, and in 1866 a Murray cod,' 18 lbs. in we.ight, was found stranded near the same place by Mr. WV. Armstrong, who was then manager for Mr. Calvert. Mr. Adam Rea, our well-known townsman, who, has been ver'y enthusiastic in this matter, and firmly held to the belief that the fish would be suc cassfully acclimatised in the district, had these two fish stuffed, and they may now be see?n in glass cases on the verandah of his residence.

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 3 March 1876
NOTEJS AND EI'~BVNTS. The long-standing dispute between the Shire Council and the Messrs. Murray, re specting the damage done to the Barongarook property by the drain adjoining the land, has at length been settled. At the meeting on Wednesday last, the Council decided to accept the proposition made by the Messrs. Murray for a settlement, as follows :-About 34 chains of fencing ate to be erected, out side the drain, and the Council is to be allowed the use of half a chain of the land for the whole length of the fence, in order that a proper slope and batter may be made to the drain. The Council will not be held responsible for any loss that may accrue in consequence of sheep, &c., falling into the drain. These terms are fair enough, and what might have turned out a very un pleasant matter, has been amicably settled.
