No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 14 April 1876

VICTORIA is blessed (Z)" withs a class of politicians who do not reflect any very great honor upon the colony, and they cling, like barnacles to a 'ship's bottom, to the seats which chance, or some un expected stroke of luck, has placed in their possession. These persons are what may be termed rural politicians, and do not possess intellect enough to grasp any of the great political ques tions which come to the surface from time to time, in the natural course of events, and merely content themselves, when a question of this kind is dis cussed in Parliament, with following the leaders of the party to which they belong, something after the manner of a flock of sheep following a bell wether. These "rural" gentlemen generally haunt the Government de partments to a great extent, for the purpose of obtaining great or small favors for certain of their constituents, whom they desire to reward for past services in connection with election eering matters, or to placate, with an eye to a futur...

NEWS- BY THE :MAIL. -0--0-- EX'TRlAOItD)INARY PEI)ESTIRIAN' FEAT. The 'Eveaing Slandard of 18th February has the following account of Weston's un paralleled feat :-Thle great walking match is at length over, and \Weston, the faunous American pedestrian, has sncceeded iii cover ing no less than 180 miles of ground by fair heel and toe walking in forty-eight hours. It is dillicult to compare this performance with aliy that have gone before, for the simple reason that no long distance walking matches like the one Weston has just colt eluded have ever taken place before in this country. On one or two occasidns men like Captain Barclay and Powell have under taken to go long distances, getting over the ground the best way they could on foot, or in other words, .walking or runinmg, as best suited them. But the differeuce betweien this and fair walking is obvious, mind this fact shbuld be borne in mind in order that Weston's performance emay meet with due appreciation. The dill'renee is ver...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 14 April 1876

NOTES AND I'VJlZVI'S. On Monday, the 10th instant, Dr. Rae held 'an inquest at Foxhow, near Cressy, touching the death of a young woman named Jane Elizabeth M'Auley, who died very suddenly the previous evening. From the evidence given, it appeared that the poor girl went to bed, after partaking of some tea and cake, on the Sunday evening. She was stopping with an uncle, to whose place she had gone, in the hope that the change would prove beneficial to her. Shortly after she retired the uncle heard her call out, and when he entered the room where she was, the girl said "I am dying," and fell back dead. Dr. Hood, who made the post-mortem examination, deposed that the cause of death was pulmonary disease. The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the evidence. The deceased was the daughter of Mr. M'Anley, a well-known resident of the Ondit district. She had been in failing health for some time past, suffering from a severe cold, but her death was awfully sudden. According tb the A...

THE CASE OF L. ST 'VENVSO1 AND SONS. The Government are still hesitating to open the letters directed to Messrs. L. Stevenson and Sons, though they persist'in refusing to give them up; and there is some chance that the: daring and defiant conduct of the firmn will prove more than a match for the uncertain bearing of the authorities. To-day an application will be made to the Supreme Court for a mandamtus directing the post office officials to give up the detained letters, and if it is granted the Government will have an excuse for shirking-a duty they appear very reluctant to perform. It is stated on excellent authority that a large quantity of documents were removed from the warehouse of the firm, by direction of the manageis, yesterday, so that while the Governnmcist are hesitat ing the possible evidences of irregularity are being in all likelihood effetually swept away.
