IEAS''R MOINDAY SPORT'. ---o-- The above sports, which took place in the Colac Public Gardens yesterday, under the auspices of tihe local Friendly Societies, were a great success. The weather, which on" the previos clay was wet and stormny, moderated during Sunday nighlt, anid Mionday morning broke clear and bright, withl a sharp wind blowing, which made it rather cool on the banks of the lake, otherwise the da.y was all that could be desired. From an early hour on ~Monday, num bers of people, holiday-attired, caime pouring into Coltc, and made their way towards the Gardens. Colac itself furnished a large nmtber of spectators, and there were visitors from Ondit, Birregurra, Miurroon, Irrewillipe, Pir ron Yaloak, Cnndare, &c.

Sin JAMuES I'COuLLtoCs seems to be ambitious of becoming 'an incarnate suplpleient to the "Lives of Extra ordinary MIon." It would appear as though lie aspired to go down to history as the Victorian Caesar, and certainly from the way in which lie has ridden rough shod over the Con stitution, trampled upon the rights and opinions of the people and subordinated the interests of the country to his own, and those of the class lie is the special representative of-the territorial mag nates,-lie has enacted the role of his prototype almost as well as NAProrEox III. The latter only averted the revolution to which his misgovernmsent had brought France to the verge of, by involving her in a war which sacked and semi-ruined his country. And Sir JAMES M'CULLOCeI's misgovernment brought this country to the verge of a revolution, which was only averted by it process of 'Ministerial and party jugglinmg, as derogatory to a Minister of the Crown as it was demoralising to public life in Victoria.

OATMEAL V. BEEFSTEAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 21 April 1876

OATI.EAL '. B iEPSTEAIl At the British Association, in the section of Biology, Professor Redfern, in the course of a paper of a valuable character on the food of plants and animals, went on to point out that there were few social problems more im portant than how to acquaint the wife of the laborer or artizan, or even the wives and servants of the middle classes, how to expend a fair share of their in come upon food to the greatest advan tage, and howv to prepare it without destroying its nutritive properties. A savoury dish of meat was often pre pared by mincing or cutting the meat into small and more or less cubical blocks. It was then stewed, or more frequently boiled; the outer surface of each little block and its albumen firmly coagulated, and the whole was converted into about as indigestible a mass as could be well imagined, the high-prized and highly nutritious meat having been destroyed for the purpose of nittrilioia, and tihe action of the degestive orgasis probably injure...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 21 April 1876

NOTES AND JEJI'zNTS. A requisition is inl course of signature for presentation to Mr. J. H. Connor, our Par liamentary representative, who is at present on a visit to the district, asking that lihe will call a public meeting, as promised by hinm some short time ago, and give an expla nation of his political conduct during the late session of Parliament. Mr. Connor's explanation is anxiously looked for, and he should at once accede to the request. Councillor Buchnana's motion, which had been previously adjourned on two occasions for a full meeting of the Council, for the Colac Shire Council to petition the Govern ment to resume assisted immigration to Victoria, came on for discussion at the meet ing on Wednesday last. The motion was carried after a rather warm debate, in which all the councillors took part. The argu ments advanced by Councillor Buchanan were very feeble, no matter what the real merits of the case may be. We regret to have to remark that Councillor Buchanan took the o...

DEMAGOGUISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 21 April 1876

DEI) A GOGULS'1L. A strong attempt is being made 1)y some of tihe leading conservrative organs in thle newspaper press of Victoria at tie present time, to prejudice the minds of tihe people against what tihe scribes of these journals' are pleased to call "demagogues ;" and" the electors are warned of communism, and all other kinds of evil, should more of these men be returned to Parliament. Of course, every side of a question .looks well until the other side is presented. It imust inot be forgotten that some of the ment who are inveighed .against are men who have done their duty truly and well, so far as their light allowed. These demonstrations have bee Ihurled at mern like Julirs Vogel, Richard H-Ieales, and Wilson Gray. That there are some demagogues who creep into Parliamrent, in this colony, is undoubted, but they soon display the cloven foot. They are rot inl Parliament long ere they sell themselves to the highest bidder, aad all their communistic and and radical tendencies ar...

Hle speaks of the past condition of Spain, and says that when he saw the bitter fruits of abstention, when he saw the advanced parties abandon the Parliament to condemn and to lose Governments more advanced than themselves, he convinced himself that it was impossible to fond modern liberties in Spain without restablishing the ancient 3Parliamentary usages, and he vowed that he would not hold aloof from any chamber, or stand aloof from any election so long as the Chamber and the election seemed to himn to be the laboratory of opinion in the present, and the school of progressive instruction for the future.
