IRRIGATION. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 October 1867
IRRIGATION. To the Editor of Eltheo Epi'es. Scif,-A- good deal his boon said and' written within those last two years about irrigation, ild two years since tho inhabitants of Bacchus Marsh wore informed that the Government had madeu arrangements to have the irrigation scheme tried in this locality; and. that the sum of about £1Q,000 would be granted for that punposo, provided our Roeid Board would guarantee to pay six per cent, upon the sum expended. Now, sir, I urn not aware whether the Road Board has given that guarantee or not. If they have not already done so, I would uadvise them to have a proper understanding about wlhat the Govoernment will consider the oxponditure on those works; for it would be ridiculous to think that the ratopayors must pay six per cont., on the money oxpended for wages to the Engineer and st-ilfl employed in laying them out. If the interest is to be paid on that amlount, I considor the sooner it is put it stop to tho bettor, and the money saved to the co...

) ?,rrr " ,11aY S SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1807. Ouui small community of Bacchus Marish has been mildly ngitated for some month's pist in regard to a selection of laud in Gorrookburkg'hap, taken up by a person of the name of BEROIN, 'and ubsequeniltly occupied by one CIrAuLuS DEAN. We have hitherto refirained from taking any notice of this canse,becnuse the facts were so niper fectly known-neiver liaving been statedl upon any reliable nuthority-that we could not arrive at a judgment upon it. The meeting of Monday night places' before us.what may be taken ns a reliable statement of the grievances of Mir. C?IAIiES DEAN. It appears, then, that this latter individual, by sone negotiations, more or less innocently entered. into byI him, became, the possessor of. what, 'we presume to be a choice piece of land, `yhich the aforesaid BEnaIN had selected under the present Land Act. The agreement between the two parties was illegal, as the proper course to have been taken should have been to. comm...

NUGGETS AT BLACKWOOD. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 October 1867
NUGGETS AT BLACKWOOD. To the Editor of the Express. DEAR SIR,--In perusing last week's paper I perceive a paragraph in your Blackwood correspondent's letter, which is slightly inaccurate. It is that portion where it is stated that the largest nugget of gold got on Blackwood was twenty pounds weight. The nugget I think alluded to was twenty-five pounds weight. The said nugget had &nbsp; the honour of a niche in the pyramid representing the amount of gold got in Victoria up to the time of the first great Melbourne Exhibition. Further, there was found in the same neighbourhood as the above nugget, specimens weighing from a few pennyweights up to seventeen pounds, which I know of. I do not know that it will serve any good end my mentioning those things; if I were able to point out where such nuggets were to be got, I think your office would be rushed to get the first paper containing the very desirable informa- tion. My object for writing is that, entertaining the same views, an...
MINING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 October 1867
MINING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. To the Editor of the Express. SIR–A correspondent from Blackwood has very recently, through the medium of your paper, given some information of the doings of the Ballarat Mining Board, in respect of two memorials adopted by that Board; the first alluding to mining on private property, and the second to the amendments of the Mining Statute, 1865, both of them printed and forwarded to the members of the Legislative Assembly, and of great importance to the mining community. The first-named memorial has been brought forward by Mr. Bicket annually for the last five years, adopted by the Board, and forwarded to the members of the Legislative Assembly, urging the necessity for framing a law to legalise mining on private property; and until such a law has been framed, it is the special duty of every member of the Mining Board to oppose the sale of all lands known to be auriferous; as it is certainly a matter of deep regret that down to the present time no measure...
SELECTED POETRY. THE LETTER A. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 October 1867
SELECTED POETRY. THE LETTER A. It dwells in the Heavens, inhabits each star, Is seen in the earth, and is powerful in war; In man it is placed—it departs with his breath He seeks it through life, but he finds it in death. Though found not in youth, the beginning of age, It dwells not with fools, but resides with the sage ; It presides at our table—forms part of our wealth In known not in sickness, but only in health, Though heard not in music, 'tis dear to the ear, 'Tis given to hatred, but never to cheer ; Though ever in danger, in safety it stands, And no one can snatch it from out of our hands. 'Tis foremost in battle, and falls with the brave, Nor leaves him in death, but descends to his grave: We see it in fear, and we find it in haste, 'Tis heard in the ocean, yet dwells in the waste. From the rage of the monarch it scorns to depart, 'Tis fixed in his breast, finds a place in his heart; 'Tis given to all, and will die with the last It exists not in time, but belongs to the pas...

AovUT half-way between two small towns i'hose names are unimportant, there is or was a wayside inn, called the T'raveoller's Delight. Its name was probably a mistake, or it might have boon a satire, since the Traveller's ])olight presented an aspect by no moeans delightfil; indeeod, a tinmid traveller would have beeoon apt to turn fromn it with a shudder, as intolorably desolate and gloomy; and profer pressing on at all risks, to making trial of it. One evenin', however, at dusk, a horse labouring under the weight of two persons, a man-servant and a lady on a pillion-you must remember that it is a long time since thllis happened-stoppelld beforo the door of the Travoller's Delight.

Sin--Will you have thle kindness to allow me space in your wido.circulating journel to protest against the way in whicoh business is condboted by the Ballan Shire Council? As a coxitractor, my attention was attracted by a notice in your paper, calling for tenders for five different works (scparzte works, please to observe). I went to allan, took a copy of specifications and tracings of the work (a bridge nenar Yaloak Vale), and having got all necessary informantion fromn the 8ecrotary-who, by the way, is most obliging-I went to a great deal of trouble in examining the proposed site, and making up a tender, I rode fromn Yalonk Vale to Ballan, which is no light undertaking as the roads areo, now, to be in attendance at the Council meeting, and see the tenders opened. I waited in the room for nearly two hours, until the business of opening tenders was called,. Of course, we tenderers were all attention to...
