SCENES FROM 'LIFE IN THE WOODS.' A STRANGE FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 April 1876

SCENES FROM 'LIFE INV THE ,WOODS.' A STRANGE FIGHT. I have often been struck with the singular attachment hunters sometimes have for some bird or animal, while all the rest of the species they pursue with deadly hostility. About five hundred yards from Beanoh's hnt, 'stands a lofty line-tree, on which a grey eagle has built its nest annually during the nine years he has lived on the shores of the Raquette. The Indian who ,dwelt there before him, says that the same pair of birds made their nest on that tree for ton years previous-making in .all nineteen years they have occupied the same spot, and built on the same branch. It is possible, however, that the young may have taken the place of their parents. At all events, Beaolc believes them to bo the same old dwel lers, and hence regards them as squat. ters like himpolf, and entitled to equal privileges. From his cabin-door heo can see them in sunshluo, and storm- quietly perched on the tall pine,,.or wildly cradled as the mighty. fabr...

POLICE. FITZROY—MONDAY, APRIL 3rd. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 April 1876

POLICE. FITZROY-MoNDAr, AraPn 3rd, Before Messrs. Falconer, Woohead; and Bennette. Martin Kennedy was charged with using insulting language, and violent assault to Mr. Shea, the clerk of the dburt. It seems that Mr. Shea in the discharge of his duty issued a warrant against Kennedy for recovery of a fine. He was going up Bruns wick street, on Saturday evening, and had got in front of Mr. Cramp the butchers, when Kennedy accosted him in a vulgarly familiar way and called him a b-r for issuing a warrant against him, he then jostled him and caught him by the throat and handled him in a rough manner. Mr. Shea asked for a remand in the assault case as he intended, if the bench thought fit, to have the prisoner committed for trial; he would proceed with tho insulting language charge. The prisoner said that Mr. Shea called him a d- d ruffian. (We thought by the appearance of the prisoner he would be a rough 'un to meet). The bench con sidered that they must protect their officnrs and fined...

SIR GEORGE BOWEN AT BARINGHUP. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 April 1876

SIR GEORGE BOWEN? AT BARINGIIUP "I am well aware of the manifold and practical benefits which have been con. forred on the community at largo by the agricultural societies, alike of the mother country (all of which date from the present century) and of the Australian colonies. From my observations in nearly all parts of Victoria, I believe the main defects in farming, here are a want of suffiloient at. tention to the proper rotation of crops and to drainage. Of course I do not mean those remarks to be applied to this distriot only; they are applioablo more or less, to every agricultural district in Australia. It should not be forgotten that the purobhaseo of good agricultural machinery and the brooding or importation of good stock are by no moens the whole secret of successful farming. It is nob much use to buy the best reaping. machine in -thoworld if there is no corn t6 reap with it, and there are districts in Victoria where there will soon be little corn if the farmers persist in...

SATURDAY, APRIL, 8, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 April 1876

" SATURDAY, APRIL, 8, 1876. DURING the recess the Government will have to' seriously consider upon the best means of meeting the deficiency in the revenue, as also to devise such measures, as will' bring the country's expenditure within reasonable limits. They cannot rely upon further taxation: to meet the difficulty. In. fact, the colony is already seriously over burdened. The expenditure of Go vernment 'has gone on increasing from year to year until at the present time it exceeds £5 per head of all the popu lation of the colony. The preseht taxation in'England is scarcely more than £2 per head of the population.. With a ipeople less able to bear the burden a heavier, charge is imposed. No wonder the country groans under' its burden and entertains very strong doubts as to the sagacity and wisdom of thbse,ýho are elected to legislate for the public weal. Indeed, legislation .is almost a farce; and 'not' one in fifty looks upon the present House of Assembly with; any feeling of respe...

Perhaps it would be diflicult to give his specific rank; I think ;most people of his ac quaintance would have proclaimed him "a yaller dog," although it would have. grieved Jimmy White to 'theo' heart to have 'heard his beloved Trip'thus clas sed.
