CHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 25 January 1879

O H IPS, -4-~-- I was much amused on Monday, when the sly grog seller, who hails from that romantic spot Cumberland Creek, endeavoured to impress upon the bench the utter impossibility of his being guilty I because, as be said, he had written up in his shanty "no eporettus liclers sold heer." Surely bed be stoplped there such a state meat would b tve been proof positive o! hisinnocence; but me thinks his tonges is not upon some occasions his best fiaind, for he added--" it will not pay me to sell under a license, for this reason. I kept count one year, and only sold 2 gallons of brandy, 2 gallons rum, and ton bottles of gin, yor worships. Just so l and it won't pay ma to take out a license, you see. As this wea his first offence, he was let off with a fine of 4~ a, or on . ogoith'sa free board and lodgiog.

MURDER BY NATIVES IN THE NOTHEIN TERRITORY. -- - ADELAIDE, Monday. The following information in reference to the murder by natives of Mr Travers, a gentleman travelling in the Nothern Territory with stock, has been received by the Post master-General from Mr N. Buchanan : The party were comped at Limmen's Bight River. After I left, two or three blacks were in the habit of coming into the camp. They could speak a little English. About the 13th December all the men excepting Messrs Travers and Bridson, were out collecting stock, intending to start next day on to a creek about 15 miles west, in order to get better feed for cattle. Soon after they left Bridson went out to look for a horse that was missing. Two or three natives were then in the camp. Brideon returned in about two hours, and found that MIr Travers had been murdered, his head being nearly cut off by two blows ofatomahawk. The natives must have crawled up from behind, as the pouch of revolvers on hiis belt was not even unfa...

THEB circumstances attending the hear ing of a case before the local justices at Yea on Saturday last disclosed some features of singular hardship to indi viduals, and an utter recklessness of the loss and inconvenience suffered from what appears to us as an arbitrary pro ceeding on the part of the Shire of Yea. We refer to the case of Messrs Daniels, summoned for their rates, and particulars of which appear in another column. These gentlemen. seem to be so unfortunate as to be claimed by both the Alexandra and Yea Shirese and so long as three years ago they .were summoned by.' to last pa ned for the amount of their ;ates,,and the singulir statement is spade that a verdict for the amount was given against them by a single magistrate, without any evidence of boundary, that magistrate being no less than the then President, and conse. quently being both complainnqt and judge,.

PULPIT JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 25 January 1879

PULPIT JOT'INUS. BY A BOIIEMIAN. Wo hear a great deal now.a.dsys about the degeneracy of the modern pulpit, and the utter failure of preachers in tlleso times to exert a powerful influence upon the minds of men. "Their day is past," say some, where the wish is father to the thought. " The men themselves are in fault," bewail others, who would like to see religion flourish. With this idea prominently in my mind, through the oft reiterated statement of news paper scribes, I determined to utilizo the time at my disposal during a recent trip by visiting some of the leading churches in the two chief cities of Victoria. My experiences are briefly subjoined, and I trust they will repay perusal. I have only to may that, as an unprejudiced observer, my humble opinion is that the abeenco of pulpit power is greatly exaggerated, and that if congregations would only not up to the manly Christianity which I heard inculcated, no lack of moral influence would be urged against our modern preaohors, ...

Lloyd was first tried, and the prosecution asked for a remand, on the ground that the witnesses were not ready. Superintendent Sadleir swore that his constable witnesses were out on duty looking after the Kellys, and his citizen witnesses were in terror of their lives, and dare not give evidence. The remand was strongly opposed by Messrs Read and Zincke, but the Bench granted it for eight days, at the end of which time Mr Bowman said he would carry the prosecution to an issue, and would ask no further remand.

Henderson, called Ocfen the "Soldier" parson, from Iris oflice of chajilain to the volunteers. It may be rememl ered that some months ago, when the I olitical ferment was at its highes,, the rev. pentlem.n caused some stir by preachlling from the pulpit on the subject, thereby shewing rare moral courage. On the occasion of my visit the preacher tiok for his text tihe flst 20 rerses of XIIV. chap. of Isaiah, which doels with the question of idols. The two points which the speaker endeavoured to impress on his bearers were,-first the importance of putting trust fully in God ; and second, the d roger we all 'labor under of making to ourselves idols, not of stone or woo , as the heathen do. but of setting up rersons or thirngs in our hearrts as of paramount value to us.
