FENCING ACROSS ROADS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 October 1867

FENCING ACROSS ROADS. T'o Ith Editor of t1h Express. Sir-Allow me, through your valuablo ,journal, to lirct; the attention of the Bacchns Marsh and Maddingley District Road Board to the fact that many of the roads of this district are fenced across, thereby occasioning considerable inoon venienco to persons whose route numy lie along the road thus blockaded. One road leading to the loodmun's Creek, alongside of MI'Leod's pro-empcrp tive right, is fenced across in three places within a distance of about ton chains. Another road, running to the Lcrdorderg, is completely shut up, so that cattlo are unable to got to the water without travelling a considerable distance. Within four miles of the Dailey quarries there are at least twenty.four fences erected across surveyed roads. Trusting that the Board will take notice of the matter, and try and stop such proceedings in the future, I am, FAis PLAY. Goodman's Crook, 8th October, 1807,

SIn--Iflny a subscriber to your papor, I take the liberty of forwarding those few lines, which I hope you will give insertion, It will be the first time in my lifo that I have written to a newspaper, and I should not do so now but from having noticed in your paper several letters relative to Mr. A. Robertson's selection at the Korkuporrimul Creek, which I, with many others as well as Mr. Crook, felt had boon obtained in a very undorhanded ,nanner, which Mr. Ilobertson, in his reply to Mr. Crook's letter, has not, in my opinion, succeeded intoxplalning away, but instead of doing so has thuught proper to indulge in what I consider low abuse and untruths. One palpable untruth being that Mr. Crook has charged five shillings per load for t-ewood, which to my knowledge is not the case, is that gentleman has allowed me to take for years nst what firewood I required (free of charge), and I also know that Mr. A. Robertson himself...

BLACKWOOD. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11. (Before C. Shuter, Esq., P.M., and E. Baber, Esq., J.P.) Ah Chung was brought up, having been arrested on suspicion of stealing some gold from the store of George Williams on Saturday evening last. Mr. Miller appeared for the defence. George Williams deposed: I am a storekeeper at Golden Point. On Saturday evening, I had about £58 worth of gold in a brass weight in the drawer of the gold scales which stand on the counter. I went out shortly after 10 o'clock, leaving Mrs. Williams in the parlour. I returned about half-past 11 o'clock, went to take the gold as I usually do the last thing at night, and found it was gone. It was alluvial gold; there were two nuggets I took particular notice of, and which I could identify. The prisoner was the last person I bought gold from. He came about 10 o'clock; I bought 5 dwts. 2 grs., which came to 19s, 3d., and asked him to give me ninepence, and I would give him a pound note. He put down sixpence, which he said was...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 October 1867

BLACKWOOD, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A CHURCH of England tea meeting, in aid of a fund for the erection of a Parsonage, was held in Candage's Lodge Room on Monday. It passed off with great eclat, having been attended by a large number of our inhabitants. Eloquent addresses were delivered by a number of gentlemen, amongst whom the most prominent were-Mr. R. H. Horne, Rev, Mr. Ashe, Rev. Mr. Vance, Mr. Stobie and Mr. Walker. Mr. R. H. Horne, well-known as the author of " Orion," one of the most beautiful poems in the English language, delighted those who were present with his performance on the Spanish guitar, while the sweet songs of Andalusia and Castille (heard for the first time by many) seemed to fill his audience with real delight. Great praise is due to the ladies for the admirable manner in which everything was arranged. The tables fairly groaned with the good things of this life The choir gave some excellent pieces of sacred music, which were highly appreciated. It is rum...

AGRICUL' TURAL. FIROM THE " ECONOarIS'," OC'T, 18. BREADSTUFVS may be quoted as very firm, and Victorian-made flour saleable at C£1?10s. to £18, the latter sum only obtainable for best brands. Wheat would readily fetch 6s. 6d. per bushel, but none is offered. Maize in good samples is firm at 8s. 3d. ; and oats, from 2s. 6d. to 2s. 11(.; there is an inclina tion in all feeding grain to advance in price. Malt moves off very freely at last quotations, and there is every prospect of an improvement in price as the warm weather comes in. Advices have beeoon received of 16,000 bushels having been shipped for this market; such an importation may affect us to a small degree. Three-bushel sacks are being' enquired for, and are now purchaseable at 12s. Od. per dozen, but a higher rate will soon rule. FARM NOTES--B ALDERMAN MaIoIi.

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE STORM AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 26 October 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE STORM AT SEA, ..ear was within tho tossing hark, r When stormy winds grow loud, And waves came rolling loud and dark, And the tall mlst was bowed. Fieorceoly came the tempest swooping Down the lake of Galilee, But the ship where Chriat lay sleeping Might not sink in that wild sea I And men stood breonthless in their dread, And balled in their skill, But One was there who rose and said To the wild sea " be still." When lie rose, the tempest chiding- When lie bade the waters rest- Calmn the little ship went gliding On the blue lake's quiet breast. And the white waves rushing pu?t her, Round her keel lay smooth and still, For the wild waves knew their Master,. And the winds obeyed his will. And slumber settled on the deep, And silence on the blast ; They sank as flowers fold to sleep When sultry day is passed. When at night our homes are shaken, And the howling winds we hoar, As in terror we awaken He keeps us safe from harm and fear, A. E. D.
