MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 15 September 1877

MELBOURNE LETTER. -4-- (PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). Notwithstanding the declarations of the Government as to adhering to their tariff in its entirety, some rather important altera tions have been made under pressure of the industries interested, the proposed duly on tunny-bags havitng been abandoned in-defer ence to the reptresentatlons of potato growers, and the duties respecting silk goods have been also amended; but .1r Berry still re mains deaf to the arguments adduced against the proposal to tax imported stock, so that the meat duty is likely to be ere long fully enacted, and a rise in the price of beef and mutton may be safely predicted as the result. This is generally regarded in the light of " a sop to Cerberus," the Government being credited with a desire by this means to placate their traditional enemy, tihe squatters, and thus reconcile them to tile impostitm of a land tix. The bill providing for this latter impost has now finally passed tie Assembly without material alt...

AMATEUR ENTERTAINiMENT AND HOSPITAL ART-UNION. The entertainment given at the Athenmum on Wednesday evening, in connection wi h the drawing of tlhe Ilopital Art Union, was certainly one of thile most succegsful per formances given by amateurs for a long time in Alexandra, as the acting was really good, and nothing was attempted beyond the capacity of the company. Tile programme, which gave pleasure to a large audience, consisted of two fitrces, " No. 1 Hound the tCorner" and " Donre on Iolth Sides," notp ported by M[ ssrs W. G.

Alexandra & Yea Standard PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY "EXCELSIOR." SATURDAY, 15TH SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 15 September 1877

Alexandra & Yea Standarad     Published Every Saturday "Excelsior."     SATURDAY, 15TH SEPTEMBER. IT is to be hoped that Alexandra will do itself credit on the occasion of the visit of members of the Ministry next week. The event should be one of consaderable importance in our local history, inasmuch as it will enable us to show our distinguished visitors not only the wants, but the resources and capacities of the district. Disagreeing, as we do, on many points with the policy and views of the present Government, we are decidedly of opinion that such differences should be mute on such an occasion as this, and that everything should be done to give Ministers that welcome which their position entit;es them to ; and, more over, we are disposed to accord them the highest praise for thus taking such opportunities as may present them selves for personally ascertaining the condition of the provincial districts and familiarizing th...

A COMPLAINT. (To the Editor of the Standard). [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 22 September 1877

A COMPLAINT. (To the Editor of the Standard). Srn,-One of the most vexatious of the annoyances to which persons doing business at the Alexandra Post Ollico are obliged to submnit, is the frequent and lonethy closing of thle delivery window while rails are being made up or received. As there are three persons employed in the othce, lhere cannot be any reason fir closing the window at all. In formor times, when the business at the Post Office was at least three times what it is now, one person managed the place with far more convenience to thie public than they do at present. But if the window must be closed, there might at least be a notice put on it, so that people should not be kept knock inc and vainly waiting. Every oilier Post Office I am acqudainted cith has a postal guide hung up on its verandah so that the public may learn the times of arrival and de parturo of mntils, but no such convenience exists here. I am informed that complaints have been made, but without effect, and I...

As, however, some large cold flakes presently fell on her nose, she drew back her head, and shut the window. "Gottlieb," she anid to her husband, "stay at home to night, and let Philip go for you.

Jml'adipt & G ea >tanLrItd PUIRII1? ED EVERY BATURDI)AY "iEXCELSIO I." SATURDAY, 22ND SEPTEMlBER, A SUBJECT emanating from the Shire of Waranga, and embodied in the form of a circular from that body to other Shire Councils, seems to us well worthy not only of their consideration, but of Parliament. We refer to the proposal to confer power upon such bodies to construct branch lines of railways as feeders to the main trunk lines constructed by the Government; to borrow money for such a purpose, and to be entirled to receive subsidies from the State funds in aid thereof. At present there are many country districts wherein the construction of lines such as those contemplated are eminently suitable and much required, and which would if constructed yield a handsome return on the cost of con struction. Such districts are at pre sent placed in the somewhat invidious position of having to go to the central government and beg as a favor what they should be in a position to demand a...

MELBOURNE LETTER. (FnROM OUR OWYN COIUtESPONDENT). My last letter mentioned the fact of thb Legislative Council having deferred the second reading of the Land Tax Bill for a iortnight, ia proceeding which, as I then in timated, was not at all relished by the Govertm, nt, at least ostensibly,, for there are not wanting ill-natured persons who assert that 1the almlistry were imnmensely gratiiled at tihe iretext this aflforded them for picking a quarrel with the Council, especially upon what is regarded as a popular principle. At. all events, tile opportunity was taken to propose the adjournment of the Assembly for a similar period, whill h was agreed to on '2uesday without a division, after some un availing protsts from Ctel Opposition leaders.

Our district has been promised this visit for some time, and we are glad to be able to say that at last its importance has been re cognised, and we may hopte some material benefit will be derived from the visit of such a list of notabilities.
