AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The work of ploughing is being pushed forward with inuch difficulty, owing to the extreme heat and continued drought, which the recent thunderstorms have only amelio rated in a slight degree. Some heavy showers are very much wanted to enable the opera tions :connected with preparing the next seedbed to be completed in time. The dry weather is, however, ;favorable for earting the produce of the late harvest to the several markets, a work that is being prose cuted briskly, especially in the wheat growing districts north of the Dividing Range, where the road6 in wet weather are all but impassable. The potatoi;crop is ap proaching maturity, and on the whole pro nises to be'fairly up to the average. Some of the Mount Gambier crop is already on the market, but the quality is not so good as ssual. A correspondent informs the Mount Gambier press, " that even ripe potatoes dug before getting a good soaking of rain can neither bear carriage, nor will they keep so well as t...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

SPORTIN?vg NOTES: BY OLD- JuaALOSN. I suppose, Mr. Editor, some of your readers who take an interest in racing mat ters wish to know something aboiut the horses engaged in the various events to be contested at the Colac Annual Races on Wednesday next, and also expect something like a "tip" as to winners. Well,.though my opportunities on the present occasion have been limited, I will do mly best. First on the list is the Maiden Plate. For this race I fancy "Old Son's" filly Waterhen. This animal is got by Pilot, and the stout Panic racing blood is sure to tell at the finish, therefore I expect Waterhen to come at the right end. I can't have Granuana;, after her Camperdown running, at any price, and Blushrose and Cerise have not got condition enbugh: ' Besides this, Waterhen has been doing some good work lately. Then comes the most interesting race of the day, the Sires' Produce Stakes. There are eight young ones going for this race, namely, Sultana, Passlflora, Herrick's filly, Guidi...

DISTRESSING ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

DISTRESSING ACCIDENT. The truth of the sayirk "Misfortunes never come singly" has been bitterly ex perienced by the unfortunate landlord of the Rosemary Branch Hotel, ,Mr. Lockwood. Nearly drowned on arriving from the Portsca trip made under the auspices of the Victorian Licensed Victuallers' As sociation, the unfortunate tradesman had hardly time to recover from the effects of his submersion when his house, stock-in. trade, and furniture were destroyed by fire and, but for the willing assistance ten dered him by sympathising friends, he would have been houseless, and he and his family entirely destitute. But a very short in terval elapses and he is stricken down by an accident which there is only too much reason to believe will result in his death. It will be remembered that when the Rose mary Branch Hotel was gutted by fire, the outer walls were left standing, and notwithstanding an impression prevailed that they ought at once to be pulled down, a professional opinion was obtained...

THE EARTHQUAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

171 TJIlARTIIQ(lAEI?, Several shocks of earthquake, of a inuch mrre severe nature than were ever before experienced in Oamaru, occurred on the morning of Saturday, the 26th ult. The first connmenced at 3.20 a.m., and lasted from thirty to forty seconds. It was ac companied by a loud rumbling noise, and aroused the whole population in alarm. Houses rocked violently, and the entire ground vibrated with a sickening tremulous motion. Doors were banged open, clocks stopped, and in some cases ornaments and crockery were hurled to the floor from man telpieces and shelves, while the contents of swinging bookcases were shot out plell-mell. The earth vibrated more or less for many minutes, and at 4.5 a.m. a shock of a much fainter character occurred. At4.11 asecond violent shock was experienced, still more so than the first, and again at 8.45 a third shock. This was the most severe of all, and caused very considerable alarm, several chimneys being shaken down, and the rock ing motion of the g...

POLYGAMY AMONG THE MAORIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

POLYGAMY AMONG THE MA ORIES? Says the Daily Southern.Groso :-" A few good-natured people of the Exeter Hall type are accustomed to believe that polygamy is no longer practised by the Maories. The common notion is that it was banished by missionary influence, and went out of fashion with cannibalism. This, however, is a mis take. It is true that polygamy amongst the natives has very largely diminished, but in many of the kaingas there still lurk disciples of Mormonism,. whose harems are only limited by the extent of their means. In some of the settlements patriarchal repro bates may still be found united to several oldchieftainesses, while many of theyoungest and prettiest daughters of the tribe are 'staled unto them,' as the Mormons phrase it. Amongst those whose affections require these manifold solaces is a Coromandel chief niamed To Hangi, whose creed is that if one wife is'a blessing to a man, two wives are a great deal better, and accordingly To Hangi has, in the course of some...

BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

BRIEACH OP PROMISE OP MlAR RIA GE. The lovers of scandal will have, before long, and interesting case of breach of pro mise of marriage dished up for them in the Supreme Court, in its Divorce and Matri monial Jurisdiction, which, should every thing connected with the affair be made punllic, will undoubtedly be of a most sensa tional and unprecedented character. From what we can learn at this early stage of the case it appears that a certain up-country lawyer, of prepossesing appearance, while on a flying visit to Melbourne some short time ago, becanme enamored of a certain good lobking and amiable barmiaid, who, without more ado, received his advances and returned his affection. " What at first appeared to the friends of both parties to be merely an every day flirtation, destined before long to evapo rate in froth, gradually ripened into a wearisome love suit, and after many little tiffs and eraptions in the smooth path of love's young dream, the man of law made up his mind and said...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 March 1876

Smi JAMEs Mi'CULLOCH is determined not to give up office, even though on Thursday night last he had to "eat humble pie" of the most unqualified kind, when he announced to the As sembly that the Government had deter mined upon withdrawing their financial proposals, and closing the session with an appropriation bill. In order to meet the deficit in the finances, it is intended this evening to ask the As sembly to pass Treasury bills for the amount required. If the House is found to be complaisant enough to agree to this settlement of the diffi culty, then the session will close, and Ministers will enjoy a long recess, drawing their full salaries the while. A more shameful and barefaced at tempt to hold office, in defiance of pub lic opinion, and without any financial policy, was never heard of, and this latest- move of the political "Artful Dodger" reveals the fact that the TREASURER is perfectly unscrupulous in his dealings with the public business. However, we very naturally feel in...

[ADVEETISIMENT.J SIIE NATIONi AL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. It is a fundamental principle of the Engliah Constitution that representation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. The people of this country live nuder a constitution which, while leaving them comparatively free to elect their awn representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Asbembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council, which represents only a portion of the community, thet portion being the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, become a nullity, and self-govern aent a sham. In every civilized country in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State. In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenue grants large annual subsides in aid of local imp...
