MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 7 September 1867

MELTON. (PRO r OUI0 OWN CORIRESPONDENT.) I VENTURE to believe it can be no matter of surprise to those of your readers who take suffi cient interest in the Melton Common School to road the reports of the doings of our local com nmittce to learn that Mr. Roberts, who took charge of the School eight weeks ago only, has resigned. I, at least, am not uurjprised; and, to tell the truth, should have given him credit for more than a communon share of that Christian charity which "bhareth all things," had he not taken the very first opportunity that offered of procuring another appoitntment to a school worthy of his abilities and experiencce. I submit that although there is no lack of Common School masters in Victoria just at the present, that men holding the testimonials that Mr. Roberts does, and leaving achieved the reputation that Mr. Roberts has at Growler's Creek (whore he was for four or five years, if I am not wrongly informed), need not wait long for a school, should they wish for ...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 7 September 1867

BLACKWOOD, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The approaching land sale at Blackwood is creat- ing a good deal of excitement amongst intending purchasers, a large number of the allotments have been objected to through the Mining Board, in consequence of auriferous land being included in the survey. Allotments 1, 2, and 3, Sec. G; Allotments 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 2, 24, 25, 20, 27 and 29, Sec, F, and allotment 15, Sec. E, have been formally objected to. It is expected that some of the land in the vicinity of Red Hill will realise a good price. I regret to find that a large number of persons are likely to be disfranchisod through the neglect of the Secretary of the Ballan Shire Council, in making out the roll of ratepaying electors. Omissions of a serious nature have occurred.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 7 September 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The weather during the past week hlts been extremely variable. Up to Thursday we had the warmth of advanced springtime, but on that day and yesterday extremely cold winds and showers prevailed; indeed so cold was the temperature 1 that snow fell in Ballanu, and in Melbourno also, 1 where it has scarcely ever been soon, t Mr. J. S. Cooper, Electoral Registrar, has issued 46 new rights for the Assembly and 6 for the Council, in the Bacchus Marsh division; and for the Maddingloy division, 17 rights for the Assembly, and none for the Council. The total is 69, a number which shows that political matters are engaging a proper amount of attention. Tenders are called for the labour required to erect a Baptist Church on a site near the Central Common School. This building will doubtless be an ornament to the township, and we hope the Committee may meet with no great difficulties in the way of the speedy carrying out of their plans. When the Common School is fenced in, and t...

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 14 September 1867

AGRIOULTURAL, PROM TItE "ECONOMIST," SEPT. G. AT the end of last week, business in bread stuffs looked a trifle brisker, and closed with every prospect that the improvement would be permanent. On Monday last, however. the trade was again very limited, and confined to immediate wants-there was, apparently, no desire for extensive transactions. Adelaide best brands may be quoted at x£19 10s. in bond. The maltsters are inquiring for good 1 malting barley. Cape barley is very dull at 2s. 0d. No inquiries for oats of any descrip tion ;'and foil sound maize, Os. has been given, hut large parcels have changed hands at 1 2s,. d. and Ps. Pd. Tobacco leaf has come Inrgoly to hand these last few days, and 11d. bls been given for very prime leaf; but the ruling figure is nearer Pd. and l0d. per lb. In grass seeds nothing is doing; but small 1 lots of mangolds, chicory, and flax have 1 changed hands at last quotations. It is expected that large breadths of sugarbeet will 1 be sown this season, a...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 14 September 1867

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1867. WE understand that the election of three members of the Bacchus Marsh Road Board for the Parwan subdivision only awaits the gazetting of the polling place for that and the other subdivisions of the district, in order that. it may take place. We are rather surprised, therefore, that election rumours have not been current during the past few days. It is generally understood, however, that plenty of candidates are forthcoming, and that a close contest will result. We shall have other opportunities of passing these gentlemen in review, when they have fully made themselves liable to be commented upon by avowing themselves candidates. We will merely refer to one or two matters in connection with the election, which we think worthy the attention of all parties interested in the weltire of the district. In the first place, we think that the financial position of the Road Board demands the anxious consi deration of all, and personal jealousies should give way to...

ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 14 September 1867

ARRIVAL OF TIIE ENGLISH MAIL. TuIl P. and 0. Company's steamer " Avoca" arrived in Hobson's Bay eiarly on the morning of Wednesday, and a telegraphio summary of the news reached Melbourne on Monday last. The mails were delivered two days before contract time. The news is chiefly remarkable for the full accounts which are given of the reception of the Sultan of Turkey in England; and from the magni ficeice of the different schemes to do him honour, it can scarcely be truthfillly said henceforth that "they manage these things better in France," 'IThe Pasha of Egypt and some 2000 Belgian volunteers have also been entertained in London, and afforded enter tainment for the legion of sight-seers who inhabit that city. The war rumours are not very strong, but they exist nevertheless. The Queen is in good health at Osborne, and the Empress Eugenie and the Queen of Prussia have made a private visit to her.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 14 September 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Popular Readings for Bacchus Marsh seem to be on the wane; but from what cause it would be hard to say. Up to yesterday it was fully nte nded that Tuesday evening should see another assemblage in the Mechanics' Institute to ap preciate local talent. However, we understand that the Secretary has been unable to get sufficient promises of assistance, and therefore the Readings 1 are postponed. It is a pity that such is the case, I for we are sure that the public are not by any f means tired of the readings, nor of the readers. Mr. A. Forsyth has been lucky enough to select a very nice piece of land at the head of the Kor kuperrimul valley, with his £50 volunteer certificate. The wife of Mr. Matthew Finnin, resident at Anthony's Cutting, met with an unfortunate accident on Wednesday last, by which her leg was broken. We understand that she was carrying a child, when she slipped down, and sustained the above serious injury. A special meeting in the insolvent estate ...
