ORIGINAL POETRY. THE BLACKWOOD WILD MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 24 August 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE BLACKWOOD WILD MOUNTAINS.   Yon Blackwood wild mountains, so lofty and wide, From the lurks of your bosom the streamlet doth glide Where oftimes I wander when evening draws near, To view Nature's splendour—this world's gloom to cheer. How pleasant your valleys, where woodbine doth grow ; From the gay blooming lightwood rich fragrance doth flow; Where Nature's wild tenants do chant 'mong the trees, And the sweet scented blossoms are clustered with bees. But one streamlet there is above all the rest; Where I love to wander by far, far the best ! 'Mong Gisborne's rich valleys, where clover blooms white When bathed wi' the dews in the stillness of night, There lives a young maiden, the pride of my breast; If I knew that she loved me, how calm would I rest, And nurse in my bosom the pleasures and charms That I would enjoy with her pressed in may arms ! Her teeth are like ivory, polished so fine ; Her lips are like roses, when dipped in wine; Her eyes are...

STRAW POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 31 August 1867

S'TRAW I'O)TATOES.-Ml'r. ltobert Dyer, of Coohill's Creek, first plouglhs his land in the ordinary way, after which he places the seed sets on the crown of the sod at distances equal to that lursued when ploughing' in the crop, a covering of straw seven inches deop is placed over all, and nothing further is required to be done until the crop is ready to be taken up. Mr. Dyer states that there are many advan tages to be gained by this method-in the first place tihe weeds are choked by the covering of' straw; and another, still greanter improvement is that the crop is not liable to second growth, and the potatoes are more mealy. Mr. Dyer has clearly noted the results of his returns, and states that from off the ground treated with straw only he obtained fifteen tons to the acre, and from the ordinary method not more thau seven or eight tons, althoughl the land in both eases was equal in quality-the same sort of seed being used, and both crops being put in and taken out at the same tim...

THE ADVENTURE OF THE GERMAN STUDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 31 August 1867

TIHE ADVENTUIJRE OF THE GERMAN ST'IJUDEINT. ON a stormy night in the tempestuous times of the French Revolution, a young German was returning to his lodgings, at a lato hour, across the old part of Paris. The lightning gleamed, and the loud claps of thunder rattledl through the lofty, narrow streets- but I should first toll you something about this young German. Gottli'ied Wolfjganug was a young man of good fionily. lIe had studied folr some time at Glittingen; but, being of ia visionary and enthusiastic character, he had wandered into those wild (nd speculative doctrines which have so often bewildered German students. His soeluded life, his intense application, and the singular nature of his studies, had an effect on both mind nnd body. His health was impaired, his imagination diseased. He had boon indulging in fincifhl speculations on spiritual essences until, like Swedenborg, lie had an idleal world of his own around him. 'Ife took up a notion, I do not know from what cause, that...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 31 August 1867

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31, 1867. THn crisis in our: political affairs is pro ceeding so calmly, and without any disastrous consequences so far, tlut:it is somewhat diffi dult ,to prevent one's self from underrating the impotrince of the questions now at issue, Moreover, each day sees a new aspect of the struggle presented to; our! view, as the turning point upon which the judgment of the people is to be solicited. The Aques has achieved quite a reputation of late for uttering contradictions, and the chaotic state of the editor's mind upon the present situation is shown in each morning's issue of his journal. The quarrel between the Upper and Lower House is at onetime described,as so deadly a one that it involves nothing more nor less than a struggle for the very existence of a second .Chamber; - on other occasions, the Ministerial members of the Lower House are told that the .rejection of the Appropriation Bill, which they have passed, is no insult to them, but only to the M'CULLOCH Minis...

SINGULAR APPARITION IN A CHAPEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 31 August 1867

SINGULAR APPARITION N A CHAPEL,-On Sunday morning, while the congregation at Cairo Street Chapel, Warrington, were singing the last verse of the first hyunm, a very well-formed leg came down through the coiling over the minister's head, and the singing was extinguished in laughter. All eyes were at once fixed on the leg, which, after a vigorous' plunge or two, was withdrawn. This was not accomplished till most of the congregation had marked that the foot wore an elastic-side boot, and the leg a grey stocking. The minister, who was a stranger, was baptisod with dust and plaster, and for some moments betrayed a disposition to leave the pulpit, under the impression that either the coiling or the owner of the log was coming down. Matters were, however, explained by the chapel keeper, and the serviue proceeded, After worship was concluded some curiosity was manifes. ted to discover the owner of the log. 'The minister's house it seems, adjoins the chapel, and from the garret a person can ...

To the Electors OF TIHL DISTRICT OF SOUTH., GRANT. I have the honour to ask for your support, as a candidate for the. representation of your district., If returned, it will be my object to promote the reconciliation of conflicting interests by practical legislation on the land question, so as to provide for agricultural sdttlomoient throughout the whole colony, on the principle of the 42nd clause of the Land Act, whilst the pastoral tenants should hold by a subordinate tenure, at such a rent as may be found'to be just as .between landlord and tenant.

"Yes, madam," answered the ex-chancollor, "and devilish good living too, if one could but only koeep them."

The Board bought this building, merely because it could be got cheap, and now they do not know. what to do with it. Your suggestion that it should be removed into the township of Bacchus Marsh is good; but whore is the money to do it with P The Board will not be able to afford such a work for two or three years, if they: pay their dobts before 'doing"any extensive works, as was resolved at' their last, meeting, ,In the meantime, the building will go. to comploto ruin.

EARLY. TRAINING, T·o. to Editor of tho Express. Smt--Mriuy hico the opinions respecting the early education of children. Some people imagine that they 'liduld-be allowed to enjoy their full liberty until seven years of ago; forgetting that early inipressions aro ofton the most vivid and thed inoSt durable. T'his error is frequently moet in the busih. Many an educated man will suffer his, children to attain the itgo of nine years without over teaching their the simple truths of Holy Scripture, and allowing them to grow up like the obnoxious weeds in our gardens. Surely this cannot be right; it never could have been intended by Ahnlmighty God that his little ones should be sufforod to grow up untaught, uneared for, iand even unbaptised, as I fear many are. If we were to take as our guide the Word of God, we should find that Hannah of old taught the youthful Samuel, as soon as he could speak; to fear and to love IGod; and when he was four years old, she took him to Eli, and told him th...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 31 August 1867

BLACKWOOD, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) IT is our painful duty to record the demise of one of the oldest inhabitants of this place. Mr. Joseph Hudson breathed his last on Tuesday morning, after a long illness, aneurism of the heart being the direct cause of death. The deceased gentle- man was a hotelkeeper at Barry's Reef for some years, and was very much respected. Nearly two hundred persons followed his remains to the place of interment, including several members of the, Grand United Order of Oddfellows, of which order the deceased was a honorary member. The Church of England burial service was impressively read by the Rev. M. A. Ashe, after which Mr. Magnus read the Oddfellows' burial service, the members of the brotherhood consigning their little sprigs of rosemary into the grave, in compliance with the requirements of the order. The second of a series of Popular Readings will take place at Barry's Reef, in Peacock's Commer- cial Hotel, on Monday next, in aid of the erection of...
