BRUNSWICK COURT. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12TH 1874. (Before Messrs Strutt, P.M., Breeze, Staley and Fleming.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
BRUNSWICK COURT. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12TH 1874. (Before Messrs Strutt, P.M., Breeze, Staley and Fleming.) OBSCENE LANGUAGE.-John Durant v, Denis Callaghan. Complainant had been engaged putting up a dividing fence, when he got into a dispute with defendant; who is the owner of a bad temper and a worse tongue. Fined 5s., with 18s. costs, or forty-eight hours' imprisonment. DErOSITING NIOGITSOIL. - Michael O'Shea and John Wiley were charged with depositing nightsoil in the borough without a licence. The case was clearly proved against them by a man named Casey, who was employed by them in covering the same, and who had given the information first, and claimed his expences afterwards for attending as a witness in the prosecution. .They were each fined tsn., with 6s. Gd. costs, or fourteen days' imp risoniment. LAtcE.cY.--Thomas Jones was charged with illegally retaining a pipe, the pro perty of a man named Mitchell, who had lost the same some time back. Jones admitted that the pipe was fo...
THE RESERVE IN VICTORIA STREET. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
THE RESERVE IN VICTORIA STREET. We understand that since the depu tation waited on the Minister of Lands on the subject of granting the reserve in Victoria street for a site for a Whole sale Vegetable Market, Mr. Munro, M.L.A., has obtained a promise from Mr. Casey, the Minister of Lands, that a crown grant will be issued without further delay to the City Corporation for the land. We may expect, there fore, shortly to witness active operations commenced to transfer the Eastern Market to West Melbourne. The ad vantage that a district derives from the existence of a local paper is thus strikingly illustrated. It was in the columns of the "Advertiser" that this question was first mooted, and by keep ing the subject constantly before the citizens, showing the many advantages to be gained, and exposing the various attempts made by interested persons to defeat the objects of those in favor of the removal-a healthy public opinion was created, and the end accomplished. We congratulate the r...
LYGON STREET EXTENSION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 21 August 1874
LYGON STREET EXTENSION. The contract for kerbing and channell- ing Lygon street to the Brunswick boundary has been entered into, and con- sidering the very limited means which Councillor Richardson has had at his command, he has deserved well of his constituents for his consistent efforts for the formation of this necessary work. But while the ratepayers are content to accept the Lygon street extension as an instalment, it must be understood that all the parallel streets have a still greater need of improvement than even Lygon street. The arguments in favor of Drum- mond street extension for instance are far stronger than those for Lygon street, and need not be recapitulated. The new member for Victoria Ward may desire to distinguish himself, and if so, perhaps he will try to effect as great an improvement for Drummond street as Councillor Rich- ardson has succeeded in doing for Lygon street.

Coauiill?rci Vall's' motion iu'n the City Coincil last week;' fr a cubference with tl4obutchers,.with a' view' to adjust the diffpreces between' them in re i[eatt MIaIket,_comes a great deal too late to be 6f.any service. While the Council thouight they, had theu.upper hand -and, could dictate terms, any suggestion of a compromise was rddiculed, but now that the/position is changed, and they begin to understand that the meat salesmen cani do without them, a great change is perceptible in their demeanor. The city authorities have found out by this time what a miserable messa they have made of the whole matter.

Oh I a crnd mnillo failthe, There I'll give sweet ashoro machroo; For his love and feelty To green Erin and to me. And hero beneath the oak tree, WVe'll pledge all our vows agai...

THE CHANGE IN THE SITUATION [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 28 August 1874
THE CIIANG1, IN TILE SITUA TION Sir-Tlhero is now a majority in the Hotham Council wisely insisting upon a uniformity of practico, and the application of the same law and charge to all alike, in the matter of pavement. The illegal amnondmenut of Councillor White which was wrongly ruled in order despite Councillor Laurens' protestations to the contrary, and which was to have settled the question at once and for over,is now, by order of the Council, in pursuance of legal advice, expunged front the minuteo book, which is thus relieved fromn the anomaly of containing two resolutions allirming two ssaentially opposite prin cipls, the first of which had never been rescinded. The situation is thus thoroughly changed and the unjust and partialrosolution, that because pvcemnoent had bootn laid down out of a loan, half of the cost was not to be asked from owners notwithstanding the fact that over £400 had already beent paid by several owners for pavement done out of the same loan, is now oxti...
THE BRUNSWICK LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 28 August 1874
THiE IBRUNSICK LOAN. The action, taken. by the Brunswick Council 'o?d Vednesday last may lead to some ill-feeling if persisted in. View ing it in a dispassionate light, we can hardly blame the Council for passing the confirmation order, because had not this course beenboidopted, the wh6ol question of the loan would be postponed for an indefinite period. There will, however, be ample timeafforded the Couiidil to con sider its position. If the Local Govern ment Dill passes, it will -supersede the necessity of borrowing under the pro visions of the present act, for the simple reasotn.that the present act will have ceased to exist: 'Instead of maintaining an antagonistic, position to the rate payers thero' should be 'spirit of com promise evinced. 11\e are quite sure the ratepayers are only, animated with. an- honest desire for the prosperity of the borough; and in the course they have pursued, they consider they aire carrying out this idea. , No doubt a loan is: ab solutely necessary, ...

TH?E LOC.AL GOVEIRNMENT B ILI. The opinions of the reprcsentatives of the electoral districts through which the Advertiser circulates are very soldom known on questions of public importance. This arises in a great measure from the inability of the daily press to give all speakers in extesso.
