The "fortune of war" seems to have been dead against Colac all through the present cricketing season, but it is to be hoped that this is the last of the ill-luckwhich has attended our cricketers. The Birregurra men were captained by Mr. J. F. Strachan, and Mr. G. P. Robertson performed a similar duty for the Colac players. Birregurra went first to the wickets, and made a total score of 65. J. M'Callum was the only one of the team who got into douible figures, and he scored 16 in his usual free manner, when he succumbed to a good ball from C. Murray. The Colac men' then went in, and were speedily dis posed of for the very small score of 33 runs. Ir. G. P. Robertson made 24 rnns, and carried out his bat. Sunderland made five, and there were six " duck eggs" entered in the scoring-book. Colac, however, p...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 11 April 1876
AGRICULTURAL NO'TES. -0-~---* The recent copious rains have been most welcome, and appear to have been well dis tributed, not only throughout Victoria, but also over the other colonies, where the long continued drought was beginning to be at tended with:serious effects on the stock. The benefits are already perceptible in the spring of grass and freshness of the culti vated pastures which, if the rains should be followed by mild weather, will soon pro duce a luxuriant sward of herbage. Those farmers who were early, at work oith the preliminary scarifying or gang-ploughing of their tillage lands will now profit by the coinplete germination of, weed seed, and the thick coat of green manure they will have to plough down in preparing for the next crop. The season is now most favor able for the laying down of pasture lands, the sowing of vlhich should be carried on at every dry opportunity. In the new dis tricts, where summer-fallowed and early ploughed lands are ready, wheat sowing shou...

It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. I'he people of this country live under a constitution which, while lca\ing thems comparativcly free to elect their own reprcesntativCs praT tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Assembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council. which renresents only a portion of the community, thit portions being the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, Iecomie a nullity, and self-govern teunt a shan. In every civilized country in the worhld a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State.
