W ARSNA MIBOOL LIVE STOCK MARKET. WARRNAMBOOL, May 26. Messrs. Hepburn, Leonard and Rugs report :-The continued severity of the weather still :ifduences cunsignments, and the stock forwarded to day being below the average supply.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 1 June 1877
The following curious incident is repc.rted by the Ballarat Courier to have occured in Bungaree. A gardener, residing near the Goug Gong, observed lately that one of his cowsj which up to that time had -yielded a splendid supply of niilk, was falling off con. siderably in condition, and gave hardly any milk. He accordingly killed the animal, and found imbedded in its heart, to the depth 4f 2in., a packing needle. The heart was distended to twice its ordinary size. and around the place where the needle had worked into it, was apparently gangreened. The needle itself had become rusty, as would be expected under the circumstances. It probably passed into the animal's stomich along with its food. and then worked its way into a position where it would have speedily caused the death of the unfortunate animal. A return showing the growth of the city of Melbourne. the valuation and the rates levied from 1843 to 1877, has just been comrpiled and issued by Mr. Fitzgibbon, the townclerk. In 18...

WRECK AT CURDIE'S INLET. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 1 June 1877
WRECK AT CURDIE'S INLET. Considering the exceedingly stormy wea ther that prevailed along the coast on Satur day, Sunday, and Monday, it is scarcely to be wondered that we should have to an. nounce that early on the morning of the 28th inst., a vessel went ashore close to Curdie's Inlst, distant from Warrnambool, to the eastward, about 35 miles. The news of the wreck, which is but scanty, was brought into Warrnambool yesterday morning by Mr. M'sGillivray, a resident at Curdie's Inlet, and who came to communicate by telegraph, on behalf of the captain, with the owners in Sydney, to which place the vessel belongs. 6o far as we have been able to gather infor mation, the partioulars are as follow. The Young Australian a three masted schooner of some 150 tons burden, was, on Sunday, at-nding off this coast on her voyage from a Queensland port to Adelaide, ldlen with sugar and spirits. How the vessel managen to get into the dangerous position in which she found herself on the following mo...
COLAC. COLAC, May 28. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 1 June 1877
C'OLAC. (rnoM OUR oWN CORRESPONDENT.) CoLtc, May 28. Some curious reports have been flying about Iconcerning the discharge of the sixty men or so, from the estate of Msssrs. Robertson Bros., of Colac. Not only have these been locally circulated, but they have found their way into the columns of the Melbourne and other papers. They have, however, I am sorry to state not been put in their true light, for the discharge of those men did not cause any excitement in Colac, nor were the reports as to those men, with wifes and families being badly off, through their discharge, and I therefore made up my mind to find out the real facts of the case, which are as follow :-Messrs. Robertson Brothers, observing that the weather was causing their dams to dry up, came to the conclusion that to prevent a repitition of this was to have the dams cleaned out. The dams being very large, required a good many hands. Men seeking work could easily get a job at clearing out these water holes, and, through t...
The Chronicle. FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 1 June 1877
FRIDA Y, JUNE 1, 1877. Tans is the day for the Ministerial elec tions, and Messrs. BEnnr, LONSMORE, LALOR, GRANT, WOODs, and PATTsRSON will, we dare say, be returned unopposed. We do not look upon this, however, as any forecasting of the political future of Victoria, but simply as one of the events ordinarily attendant on the re. election of Ministers. Nobody cares much about opposing men returned at a general election, especially so soon after that election has taken place, and with every prospect of those returned being sent back to their constituents at an early day. Let Mr BERRY and his ,party boast as they will about the triumph achieved over Sin JAMEs M['CULLocH on the 11th ultimo, they still cannot divest themselves of the ernssiousness that the majority obtained on that occasion was not theirs. So far from this being the case, it wasmade up of men, who would no more think of acting with them, than with Sta JAmls M'CuLLoCH and his late collea gues, and we may, therefore, look...
