PRAYER FOR RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
PRAYER FOR RAIN. The good folks of Sydney have been much troubled lately about the efflicacy of, and ad visability of, prayer for rain. " The case of those who have their difficulties in praying for rain was eloquently put by ir. Auberon Herbert, a short time ago, ina communication to the Times :-' No greater misfortune,' said Mr. Herbert, 'could befal the human race than that some day it should discover with positive assurance that the successions of phenomena were rendered uncertain by an unseen will. Once ascertain that these per turbations by prayer existed to an appreciable extent, and such a discovery would not only unhinge the industry of the world, would not only make calculation useless and science foolish, but in its moral effect it would bury all activity of thoughtin the gloom of an ab ject religion, it would discourage what there is most manly and generous in the human race, it would change us from a nation of workers into a congregation of monks, audit would involve he...
THE DELEMATER GAS-WELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
TI11l DELEAfATER GAS-IVELL. An American correspondent of Icon, writes as follows of the great gas-well near Millers town, Butler county, Pennsylvannia :-It is wstonderful to see this volcano flame exploding in the air. The pressure is so great that the gas cannot ignite till it gets 20ft. beyond the nozzle. The stream of gas comes up 1,600ft. through a 5in. iron pipe, and is conducted off 200ft. through another tube, where it finds vent. The general pressure of the gas with the valve open is S00lb. to the square inch. We partly closed the valve and the pressure ran up to 1,200; closed it a little more, and the tubing began to tremble and the great ton weight holding it down began to lift. It was only a quick turn of the skilful engineer that savol 1,600ft. of iron tubing, anchored down with several tons weight, from shooting like an arrow into the air. The engineer conducted a half-inch stream of gas into a 12-horse power" steam-engine, sind it ran so fast that the machinery broke. ...
ERNEST GILES'S EXPLORATIONS, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
EllRNEST GILES',S' EPLORA TIONS, 1875. Amongst the explorers of Australia the name of Ernest Giles may fairly be included, for he has contributed, by his enthusiastic ardor to the geographical knowledge of the great Australian desert that has remained so long a secret to the majority of persons. The conclusions arrived at by Baron Von Mueller, when engaged, in connection with Mr. Augustus Gregory, in 1855-6, respect ingi the resources of the remote. inland settlements of South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland, have been proved to be correct. Besides which, thanks to the intrepid perseverance of men like Mr. Giles, new and safe routes have been opened up to the unsettled portions of the Australian colonies, which has led to the lucrative settle ment of vast tracts of country, that in time will become more valuable when their re sources have been developed. Beyond the advantage of territorial exploration lead iig to the increment of the public estate and revenue, there is the...

IT is, perhaps, one of those singular and fortuitous concurrences of circum stances which sometimes so unaccount ably ]happen, and suggest strange in ferences, that the stipendiaryhon. drones should retire to play or sleep, and rest in a recess " after their arduous labors," just as the busy bees of the community are going into the fields to cultivate the earth. Tie most ancient and honorable of industries is now " in session," and ploughing and sowing operations, though completed on some farms, are yet in full swing on others. We believe that we are not far out in stating that considerable difficulty has been ex perienced by farmers ,in this and other districts in former seasons, and espe cially during the present one, in obtain lug pure and clean seed, whether for grain or grasses. The question of the ptrity and quality of the seed, and its suitability to soil and climate, is of as vital importance to the agriculturist as is that of pedigree to the breeders of stock. As in the lat...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
NOTES AND B VtNTS. The requisition to Mr. J. H. Connor, to call a public meeting, in accordance with his previous promise, has been numerously signed, and will be forwarded to Mr. Connor by this evening's post. We hope to be able to announce in our next issue that "our member" has determined upon holding a public meeting in Colac. The writer of the lines, "Our Joseph," has neglected to complywith an indispensable condition-the author's name has not been forwarded. We will not, under any circumn stances, publish communications unless the names of the writers are forwarded with them. We are informed, on what we consider very reliable authority, that the Western Stage Company has bought out the coaching business of Sumpter and Co., and the coach which has been run by the latter company between Camperdown and Geelong for some years past will be discontinued after the present week. The WYestern Stage Company will then run a coach every day, instead of on alternate days, as at present. Th...
TO HEAVEN AND BACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
1TO NBA VBV AND BACK; One of those very unusual circumstances was witnessed in this town one lay during the week, and has caused no little amount of conversation and surprise. A lady who had been suffering for some days in bed, and who was expected to breathe her last every moment, was being watched by a number of kind friends and some members of her family. On Tuesday morning she seemed to grow very feeble, and between 7 and 8 o'clock stretched her limbs out to their full extent, and gave a sigh. It was generally thought that she was dead, and the woman who was to lay her out was sent for. In the mean time an attempt was made to take the rings off her fingers, which was done at a request made by herself on a previous occasion. Some trouble was experiened in remavine one of the rings, and the second one couli not be got over the knuckle joint. During all this time there was not the slightest sign of breathing nor pulsation, in fact one of the nurses present, who had many years' expe...
THE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 25 April 1876
LEA(,GUE. Those thinking andintelligeut electors wlho have been watching the proceedings andl doings of our representatives in Parliament for the last live years, utder payment of ielllilers, are well aware of the views and objects of the National tReform League. But a large inuiibor of voters take little or no interest in political matters, and to these may be attributed the cause of our 1Parlia mentary institution being brought into disgrace, as these electors generally vote for any unprincipled mncl who will do them somie paltry personal favor, or pander to their depraved appetites by swilling themt with drink on the day of election. It is truly lahuentable and distressing for the intelligent electors to see themselves out voted by this class. tBut a warning is now sounding througlout the land, lnd tihese careless and apathetic meni would get their deserts, by bleing deprived of their privileges were it not that a large number of intelligent and deserving Imen would be like suffe...

He perfectly agreed with Mr. O'Loghlen that tle aut under which the present proceeding were insti tuted gave an oflicer of the Government ex trao...
