FEARFUL FLOODS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

FEARFUL FLOODS IN NEW SOUTH WALES. THE sister colony of New South Wales is getting quite an unenviable reputation for periodical floods, as well as for being overrun with bushrangers. The following telegrams will give an idea of the extent of this last disaster:— SYDNEY, 22nd June. The approach to the bridge across the Nepean at Penrith has sunk several feet, and traffic has been entirely suspended. The river here measures eight miles across. The poultry all round the town have taken refuge on the roofs of the houses. All the telegraph lines are interrupted. The floods appear to be subsiding, although the rain, which has been falling in torrents, has not abated. A light breeze is blowing now in place of the fearful gales of the past four days. 24th June. The weather has completely changed. Since daylight yesterday the weather has been magnificent and quite unseasonably warm. The River Nepean at Penrith has fallen fourteen feet, thus curtailing the breadth of country under water very...

ORIGINAL POETRY. SABBATH IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. SABBATH IN THE BUSH.     How sweetly solemn is this Sabbath morn!   No hum of man intrudes upon the ear, No voice to break the stillness of the scene— We feel that God alone is present here ! No mockery of unfelt worship heard— Bowing the knee—the soul to Mammon given, And while with earthly care the heart is filled Offering lip service to the God of Heaven. But though vain man-creation's boasted lord— Has bid no pompous temple here arise, Nature aloud on all her children calls To pay with joy their morning sacrifice. Gladly the feathered songsters of the grove Start from their nests, tuning their simple lays; And as to meet the day they heaven-ward soar Warble divinely their creator's praise. And is not Nature's temple grander far Than all o'er raised by art or work of man ? It bears the impress of its Maker's power It tells that what He wills to do He can. To Nature's God we'll rear an altar here; Sublimely reared, without th...

TO A PET CANARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 June 1867

TO A PET CANAltY. Bird of the household I songster of home !   Whose notes in a wild burst of harmony come, Like a voice from the woods or a song by the stream Of youth's early May-time and love's early dream ; Thy cage is no prison—no captive thus sings, And free in the sun files the gold of thy wings. "Pretty Dick !" let thy mistress, sweet, whisper a word— Her heart is a captive much more than her bird. Oh,would thou could'st utter her thoughts in thy lay, Then free should'st thou fly to the one far away And tell him how oft with her bird in the cage She has talked of the absent, and looked at his gage;. Thou should'st give him the kiss I am giving to thee, And say it was sent as a token from me. " Pretty Dick !" if he told you no more we should part, Thy wings could not flutter much more than my heart !

To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 July 1867

* To th1a Editor qt' tihe E??ress. Sin-Several correspondents have from time. to time drawn the attention of your readers to the subject of changing the name of Baceohs Marsh. I quite agree with them. I consider it is full time that we wore iup and doing to have a more appropriato name given to the fertile valley in which we live. Why should it be called Bacchus Marsh ? I am sure that the god of wine is not more dominant here than in any other township in the colony, neither is it a marsh, as the namo indicates. If you travelled one hundred miles around it at present, you would then say that it is the driest and most pleasant placeo you wore able to find. Therefore I respectfully suggest that some of our leading residents (or, say the Road B3oard), should convene a public meeting to discuss the question as to the desirability of having the namel changed. Bacchus Marhll, 6th July. S. D. "FATHER, Har there any boys in Parliament P" N"o, my son-why do you ask that question ?" " ecause ...

To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 July 1867

To the Editor of tho Ea;'pess, Sin--I was much pleased with a letter which appeared in the columns of the Guardian, regarding the changing the name of our township. The remarks of "D. IIH." were, in my opinion, very appropriato, and I quite agree with him that Morrimu is a much more suitablo name than Bacohus Marsh, and I believe it would be adopted with but little opposition. A matter of so much importance, however, cannot well be accomplished without the consent of the people in the neigh. bourhood, and the only proper way to obtain this is, I presumeo, by calling a public meeting, and submltting the proposal to those who are really interested in the prosperity of the district. There can hardly be a doubt but that the name " marsh" suggests to those unacquainted with the locality something the very reverse of the reality. The idea of living in a low marshy place has prevented many a one from making the Marsh and vicinity their future home. By all means, then, let us have it change...

ARRIVAL OF THE PANAMA MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 July 1867

ARRIVAL OF TIIc PANAMA MAIL. T'IE Panama mail haIs arrived tolerably punctual this month, but unfortunately for the company it does not bring any startling news. The following may be justly called a fill synopsis of the inibrmantion: The Luxembourg question had boon brought under discussion in the House of Lords, when Lord Stanley said that a substantinl agreement had been arrived at, aud that the British Govern. meiht had becomei a party to a guarantee by the great European Powers for the neutralisation of the Duchy. The Government had acted without first consulting the Parliament, because the cir culustances of the case wore critical, and the securing of the peace of Europo so extremely desirable. There was a great Reform demonstration in Hyde Park on the 6th of May. It was estimated that there were fully a hundred thousand persons present, consisting of an hotorogenous mass of gentlemen, working men and roughs, and a number of womon and children. Tao Government made no opposition...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 July 1867

SATURIDAY, JULY 6, 1867. Tutis week the .Ea2press enters upon the second year of its existence. This will be surprising news to most; pleasing to many, and distressing to a few. It is a proud standpoint which we have attained, and a little self-glorification upon the occasion of our first anniversary might well he expected and excused by our readers. But we are not unmindfiul of the fact that to the public is in reality due the principal part of the merit of having' enabled the E.a2'oss to complete what may be called its majority. It is, perhaps, an " open question" as to what number of issues entitles a periodical to be considered as "old-established;" but this we know, that this journal is firmly established, and if cavillers choose to deny our right to claim to have passed through our noviciate, and to have assumed the dignities and privileges of age, we can afford to wait another year or two until even they shall acknowledge this journal as the leading exponent of public opinion...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 July 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK, The present season may well be called a "fostivo" one, and in this respect it resembles mid-winter in the old country.

It will be seen froan the advertise. mont that several gentlemon who are unknown to local critics will give their services, and so polpular are these Headings, that it is in contemplation to give them fortnightly, instead of monthly, W0 think tlint the public would be in favour of the change, and make it a permanent one. The neat occasion upon which the residents will be called together to enjoy the "feast of reason and the flow of soul," will be at the Pentland Hills, on Friday next, the 12th instant, in order to raise a sum of money to assist the local committee of the Common School there. This entertainment will be worth attending, if only to partake of the hospitality of the farme...

MELTON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) PRESENTING testimonials to persons who are leaving a neighbourhood in which they have resided for any length of time, and noted in a public capacity the duties of which they have well and truly discharged, has become an "institution," 1 had almost said, in Victoria. The inhabitants of Molton, not to be out of the fashion, seized the opportunity of Mr. Scott's resigning the appointment of Head Teacher in the Common School here, to present him with a well-deserved mark of their gratification at the way in which he has discharged the duties of his office. By a previous arrangement, the Local Committee, and a number of the parents of the children who have been under his tuition, met in the school at three p.m. on the 1st instant (Separation Day, and a holiday of course), whore slight refreshments of the kind that mostly prevails at tea meeting's to wit, tea, cakes, &o.-were prepared for all who chose to lpartako.

00 CORRESPONDENCE, CWe are not responsible for the opinions ?eqpresscd b? our correspondents.] CIIANGE OF NAME FOR BACCIIUS MARSH. To the Editor of the Express. Sma-What is the meaning of this sudden disgust at the name which this township bears ? Admitting that it is at the present day an inappropriate name, it is at least a very distinctive one, which is a great recommendation for the name of any person, place, or thing; as witness the strange names we see adopted by advertisers-Harper Twelvetrees, for instance, If novelists and other writers of periodical literature find it necessary to confer quaint titles upon their books in order to. give them a distinctive feature amidst the crowd of similar products jostling them, why should not a township sending to a metropolitan market its produce, equally as wisely be glad to possess a name which is not likely soon to be forgotten when once heard, or confounded with others of a similar length and sound ? It is no trifling matter to chang...

So John bought a fluto and I. a violin, and, turning one of the attics into a study, we practised there half the night through.

AGRICULTURAL. PFROL THE " ECONOMIST," JUNE 28. TMi winter so far has been most favourable to the farmers, and they are firther advanced in their operations than usual at this time of the year; still largo areas of land are as yet ~ on the furrow and have to be sown. Wheat t and barley, for seed, are continuing to go up the country, and large prices are being given for the latter, especially for the better class of malting barley, as much as 12s. per bushel is being asked and obtained for imported English, of first-class quality. Maltlng is most successfully carried on in this colony, and now that our agriculturists have malts. tors in nearly every district as purchasers of their grain, they will find that they can obtain as good a return from barley as from many other crops; but this grain requires different and better treatment than wheat or oats-barley loves a lighter soil and the best of treatment-everything depends upon the way in which it is sown ; it requires to have a good st...
