CORRESPONDENCE. A TRIP TO WELSHPOOL. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. The Bottom of the Well, November 19, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 November 1855

CORRESPONDENCE. ' A TRIP TO WELSHPOOL. , To the Editor of 'the Gipps Land Guardian! The Bottom of the Well, November 19, 1855. Sir,—-As my name has been mentioned by both of your Correspondents in the celebrated and in teresting AVelshpool controversy, I must claim your permission to meddle in a matter with which, otherwise, I liad very little to do. In the first place a " Traveller" arrives in the benighted district of Gipps Land, • and, with a rather reprehensible temerity, ventures upon the "Welshpool road. Having returned without ma terial damage, he not unnaturally feels that the experience he has gained should not be lost to the world, and he accordingly publishes his travels in the Guardian, (for the benefit of tho pcoplo of x-Gipps Land, who, '-of course, never heard of "Welshpool before), but with some slight and, I am sure, unintentional disregard of my feelings, for which "Examiner" very properly takes him to task. For this I should i'eel grateful to " Ex aminer," were it...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 November 1855

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Last Monday week the Gipps Land moun- tains were quite covered with snow, so much so that it did not disappear before   Thursday. The snow was as low down on the ranges as has been seen at any time during the winter. We would wish to draw public attention to the reckless manner in which bullocks are killed at the Tarra. It is the practice there to shoot them; and so unskillfully is the business effected; that not unfrequently the unfortunate victims after having re- ceived five or six bullets, and sometimes more, exhibit signs of life. The slaughter yard is in the centre of the township and perfectly open. From this it is obvious that steps should be taken not only to pre- vent the recurrence of such brutality but also to render the lives of passers by and those residing in the immediate vicinity secure. Horrible Murder at G-ipps Land. —A gentleman who arrived on Wednesday overland from Gipps Land has given us an account of a horrible murder committe...

The prisoner took up a pistol and had just exclaimed "I'll shoot you," when the piece went off, the con- tents lodgings in the breast of Barnes, who died shortly afterwards. There was no   reason to suppose that the prisoner inten- ded to kill the man, or that the unfortu-   nate occurrence was the' result of anything but pure accident. The jury found the       prisoner guilty of Manslaughter, and he was sentenced to two years...

VARIETIES. We are all Czars here.—The Czar (Peter the Great) clicl not like his position in London. The crowd of the streets, with the independent bearing- of the passengers, was an' annoyance. On one occasion, while walking in the Strand with Carmarthen,: he is said to have been 'jostled by a porter carrying- a load, perhaps inadvertently. Peter waxed wroth, and the Marquis turned angrily to the man, saying, ;" Don't, you know that this is the Czar?" "Czar!" replied he" "we are all' Cznrs Wo''_ The, Baltic.

#!p}30 S-antf gilttartium, Friday, 30th November, 1855. THE ECCLESIASTICAL GRANT. "The din .of mustering- arms", is a sure indication of forth-coming1 conflict. It 'floats, not uncertainly, on tlie breeze. Sydney, Tasmania, and the youngest born, Victoria, are alike agitated on this question. It is supposed^ that the adherents of state grants have not the moral daring to ■ moot the point. Satisfied,-: it is. said, with; pos session, -they quietly leave the.. onslaught to opponents.- Yet such is not really the fact. There may not be an attempt at platform meeting-, and public discussion ; but pamphletering, like a rifle corps, does its effective work. A curious study is pre sented to the meditative philosopher,; in surveying the influence of human passion and prejudice,-which this irregular warfare presents. Instead'of coming out on broad principles, and maintaining the ground by their enforcement, points are brought down in detail, and. inconsistencies of practice are adduced as val...
