W. hevill," ngaiast our much esteemed townsman, Mr. Archer, who holds the honorable position of W.M. among the Masons in this place. Not being a Mason, I can only refer to such matters in connexion with the craft as came under my personal otteie on the occasion of the late demon stration, In connezion with the MVtsonlc Hall foundtlion atone, and I was so placed on the platform as to be able to hear every word that was uttered. The remarks made use of by Mr. Archer on that occasion were none of them, In my opinion, such as any reasonable person, whether Catholic or Prntestant could take offence at. The aim of the speaker appeared to be to glee ex pression to regret that difference of religions should debar many from joining the craft, whom he and others would wish to see among them. The services throughout were solemn and e...

MELBOURNE. Friday, December 1. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 5 December 1876

MELBOURNE. FROMS OUR OWN CORRESPONDEN?. Friday, December 1. Last night's division exactly justified my prediction that the proposals of the Govern Gment with respect to the purchase of the Hobson's Bay hallway line were certain of being carried, but by a very small majorittI and the next question of interest is, will the Governlent now complete the purchase, or will they allow this proposed action to be "scratched" out of the scheme. There appears to be a general impression prevalent to-day that they will abandon Uthelr project, but I 5 think I may safely say that Tuesday next will prove this opinion to be an eroneous ron. The Government have made a del nitoe proposition to the house, and in order to carry out their contingent contract with the Company they have obtained a majority In favor of the purchase of the line being completed, and they therefore cannot now drawback front that position in justice to the Cnompsn:. They are bounld also to resist any prolposal to reduce the sum ...

Tate Government of Sir JAMEs M?C'OLtoon is rather in a dilemma, the result of the division on Thursday I night, and the narrow majority of two in a House of 68, considered. Apart from party grounds the division is sufficient to show that Sir JAMEs is moving on a sheet of thinnest ice, and that with very little additional pressure the Ministerlal team will be engulphed. The groat value of a good opposition was never more clearly exemplified than in this case. Here we have Sta JAMES HI'ConLLocb, with all hi acknowldgedged prestige as a financier, introducing a scheme for the purchase of the Hobson's Bay line of railway at a fitur .l ??u: the fartd ~e uown by the Oipositiocn prove to be considerably over the intrinsic value.
