BARWON REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 April 1876

BARWON REGATTA. - 4------ . The first regatta on the River Barwon was held on Wednesday, at Geelong. The Bar- won is admirably suited for the requirements of a regatta. It is land locked, and alto- gether a better river for rowing on than the Isis at Oxford, or the Cam at Cambridge. It does not equal in width the Thames at Mortlake, but it is wide enough for all ordinary events. The weather was ungenial, but upon the whole there was a good assem- blage of people, the banks of the river being well lined with sightseers from the start to the finish of the course. The following are the results of the various events:— MAIDEN SCULLS, £5. First Heat. H. J. Summerscales (Ballarat Rowing Club) 1 Second Heat. G. Upward (Corio Bay Rowing Club......... 1 H.

A NOTORIOUS CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 7 April 1876

A NOTORIOUS CHARACTER   "Atticus," in the Melbourne Leader, writes as follows:-"There are few old diggers who cannot tell stories of the days when David Armstrong was superintendent of police on the goldfields. In the old regime of irresponsible government the man in the colony most cordially detested was Arm strong. The laws for the government of the   diging population, unjust and oppressive in principle, were rendered tenfold more ob noxious by the tyrannical and arbitrary manner in which he carried them out. He harried the diggers from a feeling of pure sport. He rounded up the unlicenced ones in mobs, and chained them up in batches to logs in the Government camps. On old Bendigo,   in '52, I have seen in one day a dozen shanties fired by his order, for the offence of having more than the regulation quantity of two gallons. of spirits found in them. To him more than to any one man, may we ascribe the exasperation of feeling that led to the ...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 11 April 1876

NOTES AND EYzNfTS. A rather curious circumstance took place a few days since, through which Mrs. Harker, widow of the late Mr. D. Harker, suddenly found herself the fortunate posses sor of £20.. Mrs; Harker was engaged in brushing an old black coat, which the late Mr. Harker had not worn for about 19 or 20 years, when feeling something hard in the breast pocket she examined it, and found a £10 note and two £5 notes. The coat was last worn by Mr. Harker-when a child belonging to Mr. James Hills, a well-known old resident, was buried. This is now some 19 years ago. Whlen .the late Mr. Hugh Murray's funeral took place, some six years since, Mr. Harker brought out the coat, and after looking at it well, decided that it was too old-fashioned to wear. Since then it has remained hidden from view until the occurrence now ' alluded to. IMr. Harker died and was buried about a fortnight since, and his widow was overhauling the old clothes when she came upon the'- money, which had quietly repos...

THE second session of' tie eighth Parlia ment of Victoria was brought to a close on Friday last, and the Government and hen. members have gone into recess until, we presume, June next, on full pay, as a reward for their Her culean labors during the eleven months of the session. There were altogether forty-four bills initiated during the session, and only twenty-seven of these were passed. Five of these were supply bills, four.continuation of acts, two for the application of portions of the loan of 1872, two authorising the sale of trust lands, nine :mnending bills, one adjusting pastoral rents, two im posing new taxes, one loan, and one appropriation lill. Respecting the re maining seventeen, we find that the greater number were withdrabl n, and others were rejected. Amongst the rejected bills was, we regret to say, the Mining on Private Property Bill, which was rejected by the Legislative Ccuncil for the fourth time. This is a correct digest of the work of the session, and certainl...

Breadstuffs are pervaded ly'.astrong feeling, a disposi tion being noticeaele amongst the larger buyers to take up considerable parcels at late rates, which, however, holders do not regard with favor, and business is not expected to be freely entered upon until higher rates are more generally conceded.

MR. BRIGHT'S SPEECH AT BIRMINGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 11 April 1876

Ji?. IIRIGII'"S SPEE1'TCHI AT BI? MJINCIALd. The London correspondent of the Austra lasian writes:-Mr. Bright's speech at Bir mingham : has an important place in the politics of the month, and should be well considered before the proceedings of Parliament are allowed to absorb our atten tion. It may be doubtful whether it will have any immediate in lluence, but it sketches a policy that may yet bear fruit in the future. The visit which lie annually pays to his con stituents is always a great event in the town. This year the town-hall was chosen as the place of meeting, a more limited area than on some previous occasions, and it was crowded to excess with an eager multitude that had gathered outside long before the opening of the doors, and poured in like a turbulent tide. The charm of Mr. Bright's oratory would fill many times over our largest building; to have heard him speak on any special subject is one of the things to be noted in an average Englishman's history ; and it is more...
