MELBOURNE. August 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Benalla Ensign and Farmer's and Squatter's Journal — 12 August 1870
MRLBOURNE. ; (waox oua woR o Baroo osarNDr.) S August 10. The grand concert which took place' last night, on the opening of the Town Hall, was without exception the most perfect public entertainment that has taken paiece in the city. Whether I criticise the performance or the carrying out of the details of manage ment, nothing was wanting, and the City Corporation may justly be complimented in having inaugurated theopanikg ceremonies connected with their hall in sucha splendid manner. O course, I must not overlook the Mayor's great services, especially greet is the matter of finoance, as he is at the entire cost of all the teeemoniea.in conneetion with the publie opening of the hall. The appearance asc evening efseuch a vast assemblage in aach a magailcentroom was really something worth seeing, and on the arrival of his Excellency with his suite, together with. the.

WHOLESALE FORGERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Benalla Ensign and Farmer's and Squatter's Journal — 12 August 1870
WHOLESALE FORGERY. One of the best planned and most extensive forgeries that has ever been attempted in this colony has been discovered in our midst, and fortunately it was, as the evils that might have been inflicted were almost incalculable. Planned with the most consummate skill, in premises situate in the very centre of the town, failure naust to the forgers themselvesbave seemed impossible. But the lynx-eye of the police was upon the principal, whose opera tions have been quietly watched for some time past, About the end of April a watoh maker arrived in Benalla who gave the name of Henry Dant, and made inquirieaas to where he would find a suitable residence, being de sirousa of setting up in business here,as he thought it would pas seald enable im to supe port his wife and family, who be seid he had left behi him, in Sydney. There being no watchmaker here, he was promised support, and then took a small brick shop. near Player and Ritchen's store (lately occupied, by Mr. Mb'Nal...
