THE BACK CREEK SYPHON. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 12 January 1871

THE BACK CREEK IYPHHON, (FROSM THE RYNETON GUArDIAN.) The predictions of practical mechanical engineers, with reference to the inverted syphon, by means of which Mr Ohristopherson purposed to carry the waters of the Coliban across the valley of the Back Creek, have been fulfilled. The syphon has burst before it wis subjected to half the test which it was required to stand. The Engineer-in Chief, in order that the syphou might be tested in accordance with the specifications, directed that the aqueduct should be completed to the inlet, and the water standing in the unfinished channel thus diverted into the enormous iron pipe. The specifications require that the pipe should be filled to a height of 1lOft.; but, on examination, it was found that this could not be done, unless by going to very considerable and altogether useless expense, and it was decided that it should be filled to a height of 10Sft; On Friday last the water was allowed to flow into the pipe under the direction of Mr W...

SUPPOSED SURVIVOR OF LEICHHARDTS PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 12 January 1871

SUPPOSED SURVIVOR OF LEICH-   HARDT'S PARTY. Some short time ago it was stated that Mr Sub-Inspector Gilmour had gone out from Bullo with a party, in search of a white man reported to be living with the blacks some distance to the west of Cooper's Creek, and who it was thought might be a survivor of Leichhardt's party. Mr Gilmour has re- turned to the police station on Bullo, after two months' absence, but he has not been able to find the man, although every effort was made to do so. Mr Gilmour was accom- panied by a Mr McDonald, who has a station on the Wilson River, something like 150 miles to the eastward of Cooper's Creek, and who was amongst the first to bring in the report then current among the Cooper's Creek blacks that a white man was living with the blacks to the westward. As far as can be learned, there is every reason to be- lieve that the man, whoever he may be, is now actually living with the blacks, and has been with them for years. He is described as bei...

A QUEER CUSTOMER, The following account of how two lip.country Bonifaces fell victims to the wiles of an elderly gentleman' of insinuating menners is given by the " Mount Alexander Mail" :-" On Christmas Day a man between fifty and sixty years of age, and who gave the name of Gibson, called on Mr Rowe, of the Globe hotel, Castlemaine, whither he arrived on horseback. On alighting, he in the blandest manner asked to be shown a bedroom, and having washed himself and expressed his satisfaction at the accommoda tion, informed his host that he (Mhr Gibson) was on a tour of enjoyment for the holidays, and he displayed great liberality in inviting those staying in the hotel to share his refredhers with him. On Eoxing Day Mr Gibson went on his horse to Campbell's Creek, and on the following day said lie was unwell, and would return home, and requested Mr Rowe to be good enough to allow his son to drive him (Gibson) to Sandhurst. Mr Rowe pointed oun to his visi:or that it would be cheaper to...

IN THE FIRELIGHT. ?hbll I tell yon of an evening When the snow lay on the ground? When the wintry wind was ei'enr, . And the sky with stars was crowned Wheri the parlor lnoked ec pleasant, And the world to me s: bright, As we sat ton:ethe dreaming In the fiiok'riug firelight; Shall I tell you how be praised me, With his hand laid on my hair ? How he said the flick'rine firelight Only made me look more fa;r ? How my hand in his was taken How he whispered love.vows low P How he wooed me, how he won me, In the firelight long ego ? Shall I tell you of a shadow, How it fell athwrt my faith P Shall I tell you of a parting That wsa crueller than death P How the light cunrs were foraott n, Seemed no longer fair to him ? And, beside the eyes of hezel, How he thought the blue eyes dirmPJ Shall I tell you still of dreaming, When the lang day bath flown? When I sit amid the elnlowe, In the firelight alone ? How the old time cometh to me, The old time I long f-r cc, When he wcoed me, when he won...

A SAD SUICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 19 January 1871

4 SAD SUICiDE. Mrs Copeland, wife of a carpenter of that name, and an old resident of Kangaroo Flat, committed suicide last week. It appears that Copeland has been given of late to spending his money in drink and billiards, and this so affected his wife, a respectable, hard-working woman, who earned something by washing, that quarrels frequently took place between them. On Tuesday evening it seems that he was out as usual drinking and billiard playing, and she could not get him home, and the wretched woman tock her lantern and went home alone. In the morning they had some words, and apparently under the fierce excitement of the moment, and to end the misery caused by her husband's conduct, she drank a llgar quantity of laudenum. The poison soon showed its power, and as her oindition was noticed, the aid of Dr O'Donnell was olled in: but though every effort was made to effect a recovery, she gradually sank, and died last evening. The deceased and her husband are both near sixty years...

SUNDAY TRADING. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 19 January 1871

SUNDAY TRADING. Baron de Nosok, of Campbell's Creek writes the following letter, on Sunday trading to the Castlemaine Reapeentative :-" The theatres, gardens, eto, are as you are aware, open on a Sunday, as on another weekly day, for the publio; so that a working man who has to toil the whole week has the Sunday as a day for his prayers as well as for his enjoyment ; and as a proof that this does not promote immorality, I dare say that I never saw a female drunk, but the first one that I saw was one in Liverpool, after my arrival there in 1851. There may be on the Euronean continent, here and there, a very few men found that forget' their propriety and take more of drink than required for theirl bodily comfort, but uoch men are shunned by their neighbours, and looked pon more like outcasts; If the total abstainers would try to educate the people first and make them feel ashamed of getting drunk, then I am sure there. would be no Permissive Bills required, even if every house in Vict...

THE COLONIAL WINE TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 19 January 1871

THE COLONIAL WINE TRADE. -4------ The following letter appeared in the col umns of the Melbourne Daily Telegraph: TO TIIE EDITOI OF THE DAILY TELEoGAPr. SIi,--Twelve months ago the colonial wine question was absorbing the intention of all parties interested in that industry. The exhaustive correspondence published, and the leading articles in your.paper and others, ought to have caused the growers to prepare for the storm which was said to be impending. It is difficult to imagine how such an en lightened class of agriculturists and traders could disregard the warnings freely given to them at that time: Growers were told that 2s per gallon would be a very good price for the best wine, and that when the crisis would actually set in it would cause such a con fusion in the colonial wine trade that sales would be excessively difficult to effect at any price. Of course the writers who ventured to advance such an eventuality received a fair amount of abuse ; but although a short year only ...

EXTENSIVE SEIZURES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 19 January 1871

EXTR?'? IVE SEIZURES. (FROM THE HERALD) Lust year the Melbourne City Corporation lost about £2000 in consequence of the irregular payment of licenses of publicans, wine and spirit merchants, and grocers: Of course this state of things must be accounted for in some way, and the result of the matter was that it was learnt that a number of grocers had not renewed or taken out their licenses, as, in point of fact, they thought this formality was unnecessary, as they could sell liqiors, at least they thought so, without the revenue cffioers being rware of it. They, however, reckoned incorrectly, for Mr Evans, inspector of revenue, was on the qui vive, and a few days ago he made "a flutter." The first place he went to was John Forbes, grocer, and .mine and spirit merchant, Swanston-street, and seized about £2C,0 worth of spirits, some of which has been found, upon examination, to be the most deleterious stuff that could be imagined. The ohemist who examined "Cognac Exporters' Company Orte...
