CULTURE OF TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

CULTURE OF TOBACCO. Look out a plot of rich land; dig it up deep ; mako it fino on the top. If you strike it out iito beds one yard wide you will .lean the. woods. much better. Make them as long as you like; batter the top with the back of your spade, as it will provoent the seed from' oinking too deep. Soak your seed in luke warm water for a fow hours, then minxwith somo dry ashes; You may then sow,: but you must mix the seed well with the ashes. Batter with your spadlo lightly after you have sown the seed, Keep moist and cover nup Youri, covering should be about a foot high, July and August, are the best months for sowing. When planting have your ground in good trim.: If low hind, it will require to be plougheid into very narrow strips, about one rod in width. H:lavo plenty of water furrows left bpen, so as to drain the surface. If this is not done the plants will die back, even if they are almost fit to cut, and that would be rather annoying. The strongest plants are best for set...

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

AG R I ULTURAL, FROM TIHEt " COONOMIST," JULY 10,. Tanmui, is not much activity in the grain market; our speculators have ceased pur. chasing for exportation, and the millers are only buying from hand to mouth. The high prices ruling lately have induced several parcels of flour, &e., to be shipped from neighbouring colonies to this market. Vie. torian flour may still be quoted at £12 10s. and £13; but there is a greater difference in the value of country flour, which depends ontirely upon its quality. The manufacture of flax appears to be occupying, the attention of some of our follow-colonists in the 3Bollorine district. The prospectus of a now company is just issued, and although we have not perused it, we understand the object to be the oultiva tion. and purchase of flax, and the manufacture of its various products. The estimated expenses of,cultivation, based, we hope, upon experience, are £1.2 per acro, while the return in fibro and seeod is valued at £82. As there will...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1807. WE stated last week that we believed that the thirty-eighth clause of the Local Govern ment Act had not been complied with, in arranging for the annual election of our Road Board, and, consequently, we feared that the election could not legally take place on the 8th August. It appears that the members of the Road Board have acknowledged that an error has been committed; but, in endea vouring to rectify it, we think they have at least not taken the most direct and obvious course. On Saturday last, the Clerk of the Board convened a special meeting of the Board for Wednesday, with the view of doing then what should have been done at the last ordinary meeting-viz., direct whether Mr. PATERsoN or Mr. W. GRANT should retire this year. It was thought that the "four clear days" notice of such special meeting could be taken to include the day on which the notice was given and the day of meeting, and that by this means there could still be the necessary fourteen days ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO A LADY FRIEND, ON HER BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO.' A LADY FRIEND, ON Hial UTIIRHDAY. MAY that joyful day he hail'd with mirth The day which celebrates thy birth; May loving hearts and joys entwino With each proud grace, dcear girl, of thine; May happy days their love chords blond, And IIoav'n o'er thee its blcssings send; May joyous hours and blessed repose On thy bloomling clhek their beams disolose, And cherubic choirs of angels sing Thy sweeoot seraphic birthday hymn. O'er thy pencilled brow no darkened blast Of grief or care their shadows cast; But life, with all its troubles, seem To thy guileless heart like a summer dream, When volant Fancy forgets the lyre, And meon to nobler thouglhts aspire When the dow shall cease to glitter on the thorn, And shed its fragraneoo on the bright Maymniorn; When the softened music of the evening bolls Shall ceaso to chimeo through the flowery dolls,! Shodding musio soft and sweeoot to hoar In riohness on the onamoured car, As if their thrilling hallowed chhnoimes Wore waf...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

It is this latter portion of a clause which our Board intends acting upon, we believe; and in so doing we think that they are passing over the easier and more lawful method laid down in the 105th clause, as the words we have put in italics in the last extract show that it is only in case of a failure of the adjourned election that the vacancies need be treated as extraordinary ones. However, if, by pursuing its proposed course, the Board can combine its ordinary election and subdivisional election in one day, we repeat that a good object will be gained, and one by which the mistakes recently com mitted will be considered as atoned for.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

IT is a peculiar atmosphere-if we may so express it-through which colonial affairs are seen in London. Ever since the discovery of gold in Australia caused the name of this continent to be synonymous in men's minds with all those words representing wealth of incalculable amount, it has been the lot of colonial journalists to constantly see great ignorance exhibited by their coqfrerea in Great Britain, upon nearly all matters con nected with this great continent. The geo graphical position of the several cities is invariably conofunded, even to the extent of believing that Western Australia, a convict settlement, is as much a part of Victoria as is Melbourne, its chief city. One of the latest exemplifications of this ignorance which we have referred to is, that the Hon. JoHN O'SIIANASSY has been enter tained at home, as the greatest statesman which Australia has trained, and one whom all colonists delight to honour. By the speakers at the dinner given to Mr. O'SHA NAsSY just prior to...

the Imperial Parliament to legislate to procure federal action between the several Australian Governments ? It would be unjust to deny to Mr. O'SIIANAssY the possession of superior ability, and the having exercised it for the good of the colony to a great extent; but the stubborn fact is (in our opinion) recorded in history that he has, as a politician, neglected to observe the maxim that " Honesty is the best policy." Hence it is that we cannot endorse his title to be called the foremost of Australian living statesmen.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 July 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK, On Thursday evening next there will be special Readings at the Mechanics' Institute, Bacchus Marsh, in aid of the Sydney Floods Relief Fund. The programme is an attractive one, and the liberality of the Committee of the Institute in thus giving up the evening's receipts, instead of adding them to the fund which they are eagerly collecting in order to enable them to perform the very necessary work of fencing in the Institute, will, we are sure, be acknowledged by the public paying more than the minimum sum fixed for admission. Crown grants and leases for the following persons are lying at the Melbourne Treasury : S. Beart (2), J. Cain, J. E. Crook, J. R., Crook, M. C. and C. C, Crook, James Davison, R,. Evans, H.

He addressed the assemblago in a neat speech, which was received with applause, and pointed out the advantages to be derived from the establishment of Institutes, regarding' them as a natural consequence of the esta blishment of a national system of education, inasmuch as the artisan whio has been taught to look upon the cultivation of his intellect as second only to earning his living required some means of doing so, and it had been found in the old country that Mechanics' Institutes were one of the best means of supply...
