AND Swas HILL, GAZETTE. PUBLISKED WEEKLT. KERANG, AUGUST 3o, x878. THE REFOR\I BILL. DURISO the past week the Reform Bill introduced by inisters has been very fully discussed in the Assembly, and its leading principles generally en dorsed, b th by the House andthe country, on the understanding how ever, in many instances, that some important amendments ivill be intto duced in committee. One of these is to extend the plebiscitum, or plebiscite as it is usually termed, to money bills, as well as measures of general policy. Several members who have hitherto given a steady support to the Govern ment are of this opinion, including Mr B. R. Williams, one of the members for the district of Mandurane, who was very clear and explicit on this point. He stated positively that unless such an alteration .or amendment were ef fected in committee, he would vote against the third reading of the Bill He adduced some strong arguments in favor of his views, and pointed out that without such a check, a...

CORRESPONDENCE. A FLOUR MILL FOR KERANG. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KERANG TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 30 August 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. AV LOUR MILL- OR, KfiRAN?G. To Tna EDIToR oe.e Ka~aN Tmhus. Stl.,;Fora considerable time past'it has been heard in Kerang.tliat we are to have a flour mill but it seems easif it'isuallgoing to end in talk. There is no sign of a building for that purpose yet If the gentleman who* intended'to build has given! up his idea, I think the selectors ought to take the' matter up, and agitate for a flour mill on the co operative syvte:n. This would benefit the town i fer more titan if one man was alloirtedto build it, as the profits, instead of g.dinu into one man's pocket, would go all tblougli" the district. A flour mill on the co-operative ?Tystem would benefit the whdle conmmunity. I lhpe anid trust- that some abler pen* than mine will take the subject up, and that ere long it will be carried to a sue-` cessful issue, and not end in smoke like the one at Durham Ox. Yours,' &c., Poogt, eth, 188.s. Augut, 28th, 1878.

Touching the newly invented diamond drill niachime, we learn; from the .?epre senative of Saturday evening, that Mr T. L. Brown, ,the mining surveyor at Castle- I maine, has had the following information supplied to him by the Mining .Department I respecting the diamonds used with the, i drills that are now commanding so much attention amongst the mining, community in this colony.:-`. There.nare two kinds of black diamonds used in pointing drills, and they are known as Carbons and Bort. The former resemble, in shape, small, irregular Spieces of gravel, and in color have much the same appearance as a small piece of brown, dingylooking coal, not quite so bright or black. The latter (the Bort) is areal dia mond,which, from its imperfections,is unfit for jewellery. It is nearly spericalin shape and is not often used of larger size than a pea, and is generally set on the outer edge of the drill, as from its form ii'is not so liable to catch in any seams which may be in the rocks as the i...

THE WHIPSTICK FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 30 August 1878
THE WHIlPSTIC K.FIGHT. ,In speaking ,of the late fight at ,b Whipstick,the,. Spectator ; states, that 3le WVebster, the Police Magistrate at Sandr hurst, deserves the thanks of the mora and respectable portion of the communityl : for fining several men who had engaged, in a pugilistic encounter there, although they attempted to arrange the matter out of court. Combatants, having quarrelled in a public-house, resolved to settle their differences in cold blood, and appointed the following Sunday for the brutal battle. The father of one of them acted as his second, and picked up his. son more than once when he had been knocked down. The whole affair, from inception to end, was shameful and disgusting, and as the magistrate considered the parent as the more flagrant .offender, he was ordered to be imprisoned three weeks in default of paying a penalty of ,3..

NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 30 August 1878
N EWS AND NOTES. iWe learn that the railway right through from Sydney to WVagga wil be opened on Tuesday. Of the bowling of the Aistjalian Eleven the Daily £Yews (London) speaks in the following terms:-" It was suggested by one or two critics that the colonists had some new ' system' in their bowling, but it is too late to hope to invent anything of that sort. No new trick, but a thorough mastery of all the old movesof the bowler, make Messrs Boyle and Spofforth so hard to play. ;They have the accuracy and as tuteness of professionals, with the freshness and ' devil ' of the amateur who has not overpractised, whose performances are not those of a mere machine. Straightless, judgment of length, and great variety of pace are their open secret. The victory therefore of the English gentlemen against theseantagonists is more creditable." The island of Tenedos, the probable ces sion of which to England is rumored, is si tuated fifteen miles from the mouth of the Dardanelles. It is about s...
