CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Record and Emerald Hill and Sandridge Advertiser — 8 January 1874

C TUCKET. The match for the Junior Cup was resumed last Saturday at Emerald Hill. At tlio eommonco meat the game stood Montague 119, Star (with the loss of two wickets) 42, the not out men being C. Smith 25 and G-. Smith 0. However, when the game commenced, the former was found wanting and Blow handled the bat to save time, it was not long afterwards before his partner was disposed of, leg before wicket, for 1, and Ryee joined Blow and both pulled up the score tremendously, the fielding at this period was very bad, and more than half the runs should have been pre vented, tho fielders had evidently been taking a lesson from Ballarat, to judge by the exertions they displayed every tiino a chance was given, and it is to be hoped that they will improve next Saturday if they intend retaining tho trophy which they have held so long ; or the chances arc that it will bo walked off to Richmond. The Star had eight wickets down for 125, and their other men, C. Smith, Walton, aud Campbell, bein...

Why is the letter K like a pig's tail '—Because it is tho latter end of pork. j The certain way to be clieated is to fancy one s self wove cunning thau others.

EDUCATION. (No. 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Record and Emerald Hill and Sandridge Advertiser — 8 January 1874

EDUCATION-. ■ (No. 5.) Now the holidays are drawing to a close, parents are considering what they shall do for their children, in the way of education,-for the present year. We hear on all sides, loud complaints of children who have attended State Schools being more backward now than they were twelve. months "ago. We have been somewhat surprised to find the dissatisfaction so widely spread, and even amongst those classes who might be supposed to allow " free education to cover every mis management. It is patent to us that Private Schools are again coming to the front. Enquiries ..are made of us daily, as to their -position and recom mendations. It is argued and with much force that the numbers in a class .are ,far.too_great for .the, teacher to. be able to give attention to individual pupils. The greatest complaint, how ever, is against the mariners and morals of those, with which children, attending State Schools have to associate, and by whom they are fast becoming contam inated. ...

CAPITAL, LABOR, AND IMMIGRATION. To the Editor of The Record. [Newspaper Article] — The Record and Emerald Hill and Sandridge Advertiser — 8 January 1874

CAPITAL, LABOR, AND IlDIIGffiATIOX'. To the Editor of The Record. Sin,1—Mechanics' and laborers receive high wages, and are ill great request, and 8eem to have the ball so entirely in their own hands that they have but to ask for shorter hours and longer pay, and as things stand, compliance is a matter of course. To the superficial observer this condition of the working classes is for congratulation, and as the revenue increases with the prosperity of the taxpayer, when, it may be asked, is the ground for apprehension, and are we not told in high, authority that " sufficient for the day is the evil thereof." .If, however, we calmly consider-the matter we must, I think, arrive at the conclusion that this seemingprosperity is but epheinered, and that we.must soon have a great change. Iu the first; place it must be borne in mind that the Government expenditure iu railways and various litiw-aud expensive-buildings is at the present time exceptionally large, and that when the Go vernment...

Alleged Child Desertion.—A respectable looking maii named George Rix, was brought before tlie court charged with deserting his two little children. The children were found in the street by a young woman named Julia Bussell and brought before the Bench. It was shown that the man had no intention of deserting his children but that they were under the care of a Mrs. Gun ning, and were playing in front of her house. It appears they were left by Mr. Rix with Mrs. Gunning to look after as his wife was ill in tho Hospital and had since died. The defendant then left the court with his two children.

The Record. EMERALD HILL: THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 1874. THE YARRA FLOODS AND THE SANDRIDGE LAGOON. [Newspaper Article] — The Record and Emerald Hill and Sandridge Advertiser — 8 January 1874

EMERALD HILL : _ TEUSSDA Y,J A NJJAXX _ 8, JL874... ; THE YARRA - ELOODS AND -THE SANDRIDGE' LAGOON>; The question of the causes and pre vention of the .Yarr a floods is one of direct importance to the inhabitants of Emerald Hill and Sandridge. It has always been so, but is more especially now that the low-lying lands are being so rapidly built over. The con nection between this question and that of the conversion of the Sandridge Lagoon into a dock, is too apparent to be overlooked by the most superficial thinker. If the entrance of the La goon can be kept open, as we have recently endeavoured to show, the for mation of a dock would follow as a matter of course, and without delay. This done, the canal is already formed at inconsiderable expense half way" to: its junction with the Yarra, below the Melbourne Gas Company's Works. The present, and therefore latest, pro posal, is to form a canal from the Yarra to Hobson's Bay a little to the north of the Railway Pier. We think the di...
