HOW ELECTIONS ARE MANAGED IN THE STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 March 1876
HOT I LELCTIONVSAJA IA'll1 A\rGED IN THIE S TAlT'S. A letter from the Mississiplpi gives an entertaining and interesting account of how the late election in that State was conducted. The wh]ite citizens are in the minority in Mississippi, and their only hope of relieving themselves from the carpet-bag and negro Govern mennt nuder which theyliavebeeu groan ing was in getting a large share of the negroes to vote with them. They sue ceededil in this, but they did it by buying the negroes. On the morning of the election all ordinary business was sus pended "hi order that every white man might give his undivided attention to securing the election of the Democratic ticket, on the success of which, they believe, their very salvation depend." The wealthy citizens had given large siuns of money to secure negro votes " without nice scruples as to how the votes were obtained." There was " no violence or intimidation ;" it is true that every white man was armed, and that it was understood that ...

When thepoliceiman reached the solitary spot where the body lay, with his difflicult capture of five un willing jurymen, two large "carniver ous" " or " alligator lizards," vulgarly called "iguanas" (to whichdelicate vege table-eating creature, they bear about the same alibity as a wholesome dor king does to the filthyb vulture) were found gorging themselves on the "hiunan face divine" of the uilhaplpy man, circumstances of whose untimely death the coroner -and jury had met to umnavel. One ofthe reptiles referred to made his way off to a distance. The other scampered up a eucalyptus which shadowed the body, nsd under which Dr. Large at once proceeded to make a post mortem.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 March 1876
AGRIOCULZTURAL NOTS The reports flrom our harves' corrcspon dlents tend to encourage the prospect of a high wheat average, notwithstanding the poor yields which, as a rule, are returned from the old settled district; the quantity of wheat arriving at Sandhurst, Echuca, Stawell, Hlorsham, St. Arnaud, and other agricultural centres from the new country is reported as being altogether beyond pre cedent. The following description, given by the Pleasant Creek News, is illestrative of similar rleorts by the local press in the other localities mentioned :--"The quanltity of wheat arriving at Stawell each lay is something absolutely startling. The Winm 11lera Colpany's stores are crowded, andll are providing still greater accomllodatio. At Oliver's stores the crowding is not so lnotic able, since waggon after waggon is sent away allhnost every day. The Stawell Mills are also well supplied, in fact there has never at one time been a tithe of the whlleat in the town that it now contains. Roug...
COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 March 1876
COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. The Age reports :-The course of the markets continues uninteresting, the amount of business going forward being altogether unsatisfactary. Breadstuff have held their own better than might have been expected, considering the heavy deliveries of wheat, these not having affected values beyond causing a slight depression about the middle of the week, which was afterwards partially recovered from, though we still notice an indisposition amongst buyers to operate freely, the prices ruling affording no induce ment to go into stocik. Flour is selling quietly at unaltered rates; best brands of country flour realise £I1 l0s; secondary marks are sold at £11 5s to £11 7s 6d. City made, though quoted at £11 15s to £12 is sometimes let go at less money. Best Northern wheat is selling at Gs 3d, bags re turned, with a fair supply and moderate demanaud. In feeding grains, maize has at last rallied, the continuance of light imports having reduce...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 March 1876
THE ingenuity of authors of nomencla ture seems to have been exhausted in the effort to bestow a befitting appella tion upon, and one which should be sufficiently significant of, the great enemy of mankind. He has as many aliases as an Eastern potentate, and amongst his numerous designations is the expressive one, " The Father of Lies." Amongst the old gentleman's numerous progeny in Victoria, is one who, pre-eminently amongst all his compeers, gives incontrovertible evi dence of being "a chip of the old block," whether as a leading liar-huge, stu pendous, Brobdignagian lies, not mere "white lies "-ian enemy of the people, or a father of lies. And, as there is a good deal of significance in a" name, iand some rev. yountg gentleman itmay be ambitious of signalising himself in the pulpit, of emphasising his sermon, or of awing his hearers with "a new name" that should be astonishingly and super latively suggestive of the misleading and falsifying proclivities of "The Father of Lies," ...

SCENES IN THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 March 1876
,S'CEN?S' IsN TH ? IIs OUST. To properly describe the habitual conduct of Mr. MacDermott in the Assembly would necessitate the ermployment of terms that would sully the pages of any newspaper having the slightest pretensions to decency. That distinguished person, by courtesy styled the honorable member for Ballarat East, appears to have imposed on himself the task of insulting any member of the Op position when ever the slightest opportlunity presents itself ;.and the Premier, with con venient deafness, ignores his insolence while Ihe is remarkably alert to any impetuous retort the studied impertinence of Mr. Mac Dermott may call forth. Last night the House had to witness a most humiliating ex- hibition exemplifying the habitual conduct of the hon. member for Ballarat East, and the extreme indulgence of the Government. While Mr. Munro was addressing the committee last night on an item in the estimates, Mr. MacDermott, sitting behind the Government, with his legs perched up on the ba...
[ADVERTISEMENT.] THE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 10 March 1876
[ADVERTISEMENAT.j I? HE NATIOiNAL REFORM . LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. It is a fundamental principle of the English Constitution that representation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. Ihe people of this country live under a constitution which, while leaving them comparatively free to elect their awn representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Assembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council, which renresents only a portion of the community, thet portion being the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, become a nullity, and self-govern nrent a sham. In every civilized country in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State. In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenue grants large annual subsides in aid of local...

BALLARAT LIVE STOCK MARKET. March 4. Messrs. O'FARRELL and Sos report: The stook consigned to us for sale by auction this week comprised 133 horses, 156 head of cattle, and 231 pigs. Sales were, as usual at this time of the year, very largely attended by all classes of customers, whose require ments embraced every variety of useful stock. Horses.-The supply was a pretty heavy one, although a few lots that were expected did not arrive. The principal mobs were from Messrs. E. G. Greeves, of Skip. ton ; James Armstrong. of Keilambete ; W. M'Kay, of Grenville; and farmers and graziers in and around our own district. The demand was as large as ever for medium draughts, of which there was but a moderate supply, and a great many customers who were outbid at this week's sale are waiting over till next week. Heavy draughts were scarce, and as a good imany are wanted for farm and contract work, the supply of these also fell far short of immediate requirements, and as shipments to New Zealand ...
