Parliamentary. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 28 August 1885
Parlliamientary. The second reading of the Licensing Bill was agreed to on Tuesday night in the Assembly at twenty minutes to eleven o'clock, and the mleasure was cbnimitted fifty nminutes later. The delay on cole snitting the bill was due to the opposition raised by M?ssrs M'Intyre and Bent, who were. extremely anxious : to have the ueasure referred to a select counmittee. Mr M'Intyre moved an amendment to this effect, and Mr Bent occupied half an hour in supporting it, or more strictly speaking, in making a speech which had really very little referelice to the proposi tion-hiclj he was Kdiracating. It may be worth mentioning that the bill was intro= duced by the Cilief Secretary on the-8th July, and during the time the second reading has been under discussion, 44 members have spoken on it, including two ministers, Mussrs Berry and Gillies. Thi second reading was agreed to on the voices by a loud choius of "yea."

Balmattum. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 28 August 1885
Balmattutlm. (rROM OUR OW.\ COIRtESPOnaRExT.) The contractor is still busy at the new school building, which is almost com pleted, and presents quite a pleasing appearance, and no doubt both teacher and his scholars, when they once get trans ferred from the old one, will feel a little more comfortable, for the old one's joints are beginning to creak ; which accounts for so many children having colds. I was shown a letter the other day front the Secretary of the Education Depart. mient in answer to an application' from the young folks here, with reference to the purchase of the old school, providing it be allowed to remain on the present site. The Department has referred the application to the the'district building inspector to report upon, and, on receipt of such report, it willbe considered -let us hope favourably. The time stated for the picnic is draw ing near. Whether the commuittee are Sxaare of it or not I amnt nableto say i but there is one thing I can say: the youngsters hav...

(CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST). [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 28 August 1885
(CONTISUu FaiOM OUR LAST). There are few things more offensive to the human mind, in its overweening pride and presumption, than the reiteration of the divinely conmunicated truth that ,' a misan hath no preeminence above a beast." It was the prayer of Solomon that God might "?'nisa est us", .and that we might see that-we ouirselves are .beasts."' And now, at tied end of tinie, when the beast has fulfilled his appointed term upon the' earth, the Creator has been pleased to' make known to mankind, through the expression'of His wisdom and love,. which we denominate Nature, or the univers;il ]Bible, that' man is simply a beast': tlhe highest in point of.mental developenmeut, but the lowest by reason of lis volnutary subjection to his- filthy lusts. "All the so-' called "discoveries of science" which testify to our relationship to the beast and to the ascent of our minds through all the lower forms of life-although this latter is I a.truth ..not yet fully recognised ;by'thl scientists-a...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 28 August 1885
". TO THE EDITOR. - SIR.-I very much regret that through illness I was unable to attend the Appeal Court held at Euroa on the 13th Aug., as I fully intended to sound a warning note to the Shire Councillors to appoint a more competent person as valuator in further, as the late valuation has been a complete farce, f.r it appears to me that the sole objectof the valuator was to raise theratesall round; and that, apparently, without the slightest judgment. In some instances he has valued those .that are blessed with. a creek frontage lower than those that jhave to cart water all the year round, and whichn asked by His WVorship why he made that valuation, he stated that the land was liable to be flooded. Now, Sir, I would suggest thatthat that n should be examined by the irrigation com niitte, to see what they would think of him. It is my opinion that they would be for sending him to the Yari Bend. Ever since the Euroa Shire was formed, the assessment hasbeenbased atl2 peracre on tile ex...

Caniamibo andGl .owanaar die Courdain Club. The meeting of the above club took place at Mr V. Grattau's, Gowangardie, on Thursday last; and continued on Fri day; and proved in every way an immense success. Fine weather and fine fields prevailed, liares being in good form and iumerous. -About 250 people were on the ground during the day, including visitors from Violet Town, Shopparton, and the neighbouring districts. Euro t was not very well.. represented, but this is accounted for. by the fact that the resi dents of the town were quite ignorant of the ineet, iany only hearing of the affair after it had taken place.

:CONCERT. The hour for opening the concert found the door of Underwood's Hall besieged:by. an., expectant crowd, and:~,on the building being opened it was speedily filled, in every part. Mr Crowl occuh pied the chair, and after a few prefatory. remarks, called upon Miss Vawdrey to open the concert by an overture on the pianoforte (kindly lent for the occasion by Mr Crowl). This young lady is a recent arrival at Violet Town, and, in the light of her performance of last night, she must be regarded as a decided aquisi tion to musical circles. Mr Hanlon (of Benalla) followed, singing, to the accomi paninont of Miss Underwood, " Thelittle hero, " a pathetic ballad of the sea, which found great favor with the audience, who demanded a repetition, but Hfr Haulon's modesty confined the enjoyment of his hearers to the primal effort.
