THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 August 1866

TIE WAR. Count ]Bismarck opened the campaign on the anniversary of Waterloo day, and imme diately seized on Saxony, Hanover, and Hesse. Italy then declared war, and Victor Emmanuel, with his two sons, and Generals Garibaldi, Marmora, and Cialdini, imme diately went to the front, and took the field. There was a great battle between the Austrians and the Italians on June 24, lasting all day. There was tremendous slaughter. The Austrians were victorious, Next day another bloody struggle took place; finally Custozgea (?) was taken by the Austrians. While these battles were raging in Venetia, the campaign was opened in Germany by the Prussians making a descent on Altona, which was meagrely garrisoned by Austrian troops, who vacated it. The next step was an advance of the Hanoverian army by the Prussians, The King of Hanover, who commanded in person, retired, and sent all his specie to England. The Federal Diet sympathised with Austria. The latter power has invaded Germany through Bavaria...

FRANCE, .Napoleon has stated that he endeavoured, with England. and Russia, to prevent a continental war, and had a conference assembled, France would have repudiated all ideas of territorial aggrandisement so long as the European equilibrium remained undis. turbed. An angry debate has occurred in the Corps Legislatif on the foreign policy of France. The general feeling expressed was for peace, The war in Germany is due to the conference having been given up, owing to the obstinacy of the conflicting powers.

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 August 1866

BLACKWOOD. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) THE whole of the proceedings of the Police Court on Friday, 3rd inst., were devoted to hearing a number of cases, all preferred by the same party John Brooks Candage--versus Briggs and others. It appeared that the complainant had given an entertainment on the occasion of his marriage, by opening his house to his friends ; and the return that some parties made for his liberality, it would seem, was, to destroy his property, and otherwise abuse him. On the whole, it was one of those affairs that should never have been brought forward in a public manner. There were a number of witnesses on both sides; and certainly a great amount of what is commonly ternmed "hard swearing." The plaintiff admitted having made use of some improper and intemperate language toward those outside his house on the evening in question, for which the police magistrate censured him. His (the plaintiff's) demeanour in the witness-box, and towards the Bench, during the procceedin...

BANQUET TO THE REPRESENTATIVES OF WEST BOURKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 August 1866

BANQUET TO THE REPRESENTATIVES OF WEST BOURKE. The 17th of August will be a day long to be remembered in the district of Bacchus Marsh. The complimentary banquet, so long talked of, came off with great eclat. The weather in the morning was rather loworing, but about the the middle of the day it cleared up, and the sun shone out with brilliant splendour. A little after one o'clock, the gallant yeomen-farmers of the Pentland Hills were seen wending their way down Stamford Hill, under the command of George Grant, Esq., and headed by Mr. M'Pherson, who, seated in an American buggy, made the woods   echo and re-echo to the martial music of the Highland bagpipes, in strains which, no doubt, brought back to the listeners recollections of home, where they had often heard them on their own heathery hills. We observed nmong the Pont lald Hills f'rmrcis manny of the storolekeeoopers and th??ei from ]Icekwood, among whom wore James t5haw, Esqr, (of Mulses. Shaw Brothers), Messrs. G...

SELECTED POETRY. BLENHEIM. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 August 1866

SELECTED POETRY. BLENHEIM.           It was a summer evening ; Old Kaspar's work was done; And he before his cottage door   Was sitting in the sun ; And by him sported on the green   His little grandchild, Wilhelmine. She saw her brother, Peterkin, Roll something large and round,   Which he beside the riv'let, In playing there, had found. He came to ask what he had found,   That was so large, and smooth, and round. Old Kaspar took it; from the boy, Who stood expectant by; And then the old man shook his head, And with I natural sigh— "'Tis some poor fellow's skull," said he, " Who fell in the great victory. " I find them in the garden, For there's many here about; And often, when I go to plough, The ploughshare turns them out; For many thousand men," said he,   "Were slain in that great victory."     " Now tell us what 'twas all a...

NOTES OF WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 August 1866

NOTES OF WARNING. Victoria must be prepared; The dogs of war are howling; Her people cannot hope for peace When all the world is growling. Her coasts and cities to protect, Strong efforts now are needed; The enemy, should one appear, Must have his course impeded. Where are our block-ships and our forts ? For both we still are waiting; A hostile squadron may be here While we are yet debating. 'Tis only children when in fear Who call upon their mother— Let nations see Australians Depend on one another.   Our volunteers are brave and true; We have the men to lead them; They're ready at the bugle's call Whenever we may need them. But they alone would not avail, By bulwarks quite unaided, Tho' they be multiplied at will, And every man paraded. Then let us haste to guard our shores, And not heed the expenses; We have the men—let's have the walls And cannon for defences. Then, should the fierce invader come Our hearths and homes to smother,   We'll teach him that ...

H. Lyon, Esq., the employer of the deceased, had called at the residence of the Rev. J.

An adjourned meeting of the Local Committee of the B?achus Marsh Central Common School was held in the schoolroom on Thursday evening last, at eight o'clock, It is very much to. be regretted that, for some time past, the meetings of this Committee have boon characterised by a painful amount of excitement and harsh language. The gentlemen who have been most prominent in the business which has recently occupied the attention of the Committee are deservedly rc. pccted in public ai well as private l;fe, and it in a pity that much unseemly obullitions of temper ehould oceur to interrapt the harmony which is. wont to exist between them. We sincerely hope that, for the credit of the School, and the repute. tint of the Committee, we have witnessed the last of these unpleasant mecetin.gs, We regret erceed. ingly that, owing. to a great pressure of local inteiligence and correspondence on our columns, we can give our readers only an ontline of the proc??dings at the meeting...
