The South Bourke Standard. FRIDAY, JUNE 27th, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 27 June 1862
rbc Soutiotj' Uotiie S tatat '. FRIDAY, JUNE 27th, 1802. AMioTIUn session of aur Victorian Parliamenit has just been brought to a close, after a sitting extending over a period of nine months. Happy must be our legislators to got a holiday after their toils,'tho debates carried far into the night, the labour of select committees in taking large volumes pf evidence bearing on many important subjects, and the harrassing war of party against party. Now they may sit at their ease and take a retrospective view of the results of their labour.; and on these we think they have cause for self-gratulation. The questions most prominently engrossing the public mind have received a practical solution in the Acts which have been passed ; and altogether we may safely say that the se.4sion which is just closed has been the most eventful one in our colonial history. The Land Question-the ogre of each suc ceeding Ministry, has at length been settled upon an equitable basis; meting out justice alike t...

HAWTHORN TOLL FUND. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 27 June 1862
IAWVTOIlORN TOLL FUND. We have been given to understand that at last'an arrangemient has been made by the Board of Land and Works respecting the vexed question of a re-distribution of the loawthorn Toll Fund; and we cannot con gratulate that body on having any very clear conceptions of the true position of affairs, or they never would have distributed tho fund in the manner we hear they have done. VWe can hardly credit the assertion that they have arrived at the conclusion that the following is a fair distribution of every 41 collected at the Hawthorn Bridge Toll Gate: 8. d. 6 8 to Iiawthorn Municipal Council 5 0 to Richmond Municipal Council 5 0 to Kew Municipal Council 3 4 to Boroondara Road Board. To the Hawthorn Municipality, as also to the Boroondara load Board, this distribution is most unjust. How, in the.namo. .of,,coiiminli sense Kew is entitled to'five shillings out of every pound we cannot possibly understand. VWhen we compare it with Hawthorn, which has nearly, if not qu...

THE PRINCE CONSORT MEMORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 27 June 1862
THE PRINCE CONSORT MEMORIAL. (Rnor TILE HOM3E NEWS, MARo ;:20.) At a meooting of the Albert MCmorial Com mittee on the 26th Foebruary, a communica tionwas received from her Maiesty, intimating that, in accordance with the. intention ex, press?d in a former lettei' she had appointed: the Earl of Derby, the Earl'of Clarendon, the Lord Mayor, and Sir Charles Eastlake, as a committee to advise.with her in decidipgg on. the design of the memorial. The subscriptions, to the Memorial Fund: now amount to £42,000. The cost of orecting the proposed obelisk will vastly exceed that sum; and it is suggested by the ' Times' that all the numerous local subscriptions for aw similar purpose should be merged in one great national effort. No steps, however, have beeii taken to follow up this suggestion. It will be hard to find in the British Isles the monolith required for the Prince Consort's obelisk. If it is to rival the mighty obelisks already in existence, it must be 100 feet high by 10 feet squa...

A Special Court of Petty Sessions was held at Hawthorn, last Wednesday, for the purpose of revising the electoral lists for the Boroondara A and Nunawading divisions of the district of South Bourke, and the South Province. Messrs., O'Brien and O'Grady, M.P., were the sitting magistrates. The Deputy-Registrar (Dr. Bragge) road over a list of twenty-eight claims for the Assembly, and four for the Council, all of which were allowed. He also produced a list of names to which he objected, on the ground that a number of them had left the division, and that the others were dead. &nbsp; The Bench inquired if he had served the legal notice of objection upon the parties. Dr. Bragge said he had posted the notices to those whose addresses he knew. The Bench held that posting the notices was not a legal service according to the Act, which required that the notice should. either be served on the persons themselves or at the address given on the roll. The four followi...
NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 27 June 1862
NOTES AND NEWS. The ordinary meetings of the Hawthorn Literary Association appear to have been discontinued for the present. Since the rule was altered to permit these meetings to be held weekly we have had no meeting at all; and no efforts appear to be made to revive these social gatherings. Four essays and iwo discussions can hardly have exhausted the talent of the Association; and we think the committee might yet be able to provide some literary entertainment for these long evenings. An advertisement appears in the', Govern ment Gazetlelof Friday last, announcing that tenders will be received up to the 27th inst. (this day), at twelve o'clock, for the lease of tlhe hawthorn and Johnston-street toll-gates. 'Careless riding led to another fatal acci dent, which was the subject of an inquiry before a coroner's jury on Monday.

Mr. Padgham requested that his protest might be entered against the confirmation of the minutes. &nbsp; Mr. Sargent asked also to have his protest entered. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Secretary said he could not enter a protest. Their vote was in itself a protest. The Chairman observed that he did not know the object of the two gentlemen, as neither denied the truthfulness of the minutes read. Mr. Keogh said that the members 0n the White Horse-road had made a great outcry against the works on Delany's-road, although the amount appropriated to that road did not exceed the sum of £134 at the time they had their meeting at Counsel's; but they had not given the Board any idea what they re...

ANCIENT ORDER OF FORESTERS, Last Saturday evening a meeting was held at the Sir Robert Nickle Hotel, Hawthorn, for the purpose of taking into consideration the advisability of opening a Court of the above order, to be called "Robin Hood's Re- treat," at that house. From 25 to 30 persons were in attendance. The meeting was pre- sided over by Past Chief Ranger Watmough, who opened the proceedings by stating the object for which they werere called together, ahd called upon Past District Chief Ranger Smith to propose the first resolution. Mr. Smith having asked the host if he could guarantee that there should be ten members for the opening, and having received a reply, in the affirmative, observed that he considered the Sir Robert Nickle Hotel should take pre- cedence in Hawthorn for a Foresters' Court, as the subject was mooted there four months ago. A hint had been thrown out that Court Kew had taken up the matter at another house in Hawthorn, and all honour to them for it. They did n...
