SCHOOL OF DESIGN FOR HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
SCHOOL OF DESIGVN FOR HOTHAIf. Why is it that we have no School of 'Design in liotham while the other suburbs of Melbourne have these popular institu tions flourishing in their midst? P othanm, hitherto, has stood aloof, but surely 'it is time that not onl!y an Artisans' School of Design but also a School of WVorks were instituted in the borough. 'Mr. J. Nay smith, the celebrated inventor of the stcrai hammer, in the following quotation very aptly prefigures what should be the aim and object of such schools, and we should like to see a movement commenlced at once for the purpose of initiating one in Hotham. We need hardly add that such shall reeive our warmest support. This is what Naysmith says:-" Speaking from my own experience of working men, I am satisfied that if we could only give greater attention to educating the eye, and bring ing forth e latent faculty of comparison,. a most important benefit would result not. only to the workman but to the perfection of the country.

SITE FOR A STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
SITE FOR A STATE SCHOOL. Do the inhabitants of Hothnm intend quietly to submit to the Government ap proprlating that valuable piece of land lying between the old Cemetery and Vic toria street for the purposes of a State School? The Minister of Lands has, in the last Gazette, notified that the Governor in Council has temporarily reserved two roods twenty-eight perches for this pur pose, but it is not too late to remedy the evil if prompt and energetic action is taken. As a site for a State School it is pro-eminently a bad one, seeing that it abuts on one of thie most crowded thorough fares outside of Melbourne. A deiputa tion lately waited upon the Minister in reference to this matter, and a far more eligible site was pointed out to him in 'the lpieeo of land lying between Chetwynd and King streets, at present sunder the control of the City Council. t,. Ibrmsi a triangle, and is suiticientlly extensive for the erection of a larger blilding thln even the Model Sohool. The city nutlhor...
FREE LIBRARIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
FREE LIBRARIES. In Friday's Gazette it is notified that applications for a share in the £2000 granted by tho Legislature in aid of the building fund of Freo Libraries will be received at the Chief Secretary's oflice up till the 15th September. The Borough of I-lotham is a locality where a free public library would be of immense benefit, and the question naturally arises why is it that the Council hitherto have taken no stops for the formation of such an institution ? Annually a vote of money is passed by tile Assembly in aid of these libraries, and what is the reason that Ilolham has not qualified herself to occupy the position of a claimant for a fair share of this grant? If a site is required the Government when Iapplied to will grant it, and give annually a sum of money pro rate to the amnount locally subscribed. On the benefits to be erived from such an institution and the ieooossity ewhil l,.demands its estabhlha ment it is unnecessary to dilatorand- S trust a umovement either ...

NORTH CARLTON STREETS. Au amount of about £700.forkeorbing and channelling is now beingspent on three of the principal streets, and although it is gratifying to find that the recent agi tation has effected oven this little good still it is to be hoped that nothing less than the amount asked for will be accepted as satisfactory by the Carlton Councillors:.
Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
Miscellaneous. ESXTRAORDINAUY WArKI rv FIeAT IN EN.LAND.--Somo time ago Major the Hon. J. Colburn undertook for a wager with a friend to walk five miles in the hour, carrying a 6i)b. brick in each hand; he failed on the first, but succeeded on the second attempt. Subsequently another match was made for £100 a-side, according to which \Major Colborn undertook to walk fifteen miles in three hours, carrying a s lb. brick in each hand, with liberty to hold the brick in whatever way he chose. The start took place about a mile from Ashford, on the Maidstone road, on the 14th May last, the whole country-side turning out to witness the performance, which extended over a course of three miles in length. The Major-who is forty-three years of age--went off at a good pace, and success fully completed his arduous journey, thus accomplishing one of the best pedestrian feats on record, the whole distance being accomplished in 2 hours 55 minutes 50 seconds. The only refreshment he partook of was th...

CARLTON FIRE BRIGADE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
CARLTON FIRE .BRIGADE. As the dry season approaches the ne cessity for a local brigade will becomo more patent, and again we urge upon the people of Carlton the necessity of taking steps to establish oneo. October and November are felt, especially by ihe Insurance Companies, as peculiarly disastrous for fires, and should these months still find Carlton without other protection from fire than that provided by the city the people of Canrltoa may have cause to regret their inactivity.

CORPORATION EXPENDITURE IN CARLTON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 20 August 1873
CORPORATION EXPENDITURE LN CARLTON. We perceive by the report of the City Surveyor that a sum of nearly £2500 s set down as having been expended upon Victoria Ward during the last quarter. VWe must confess to a slight feeling of sur prise shared doubtless by many of our readers, as to what locality the money has been expended in. Certainly there is no evidence of it having been laid out in that ward. Possibly Councillors Curtain and Richardson may be able to enlighten the public.

COUNCILLOR ItICHARDSON. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-In your issue of the 2nd ult.,.I read an account headed "Mcoting at, North Carlton." At that meeting, presided over Mr. W. Gledhill, assisted by .Coun cillor Curtain, a resolution was moved by Mr. King, viz.-"That a requisition by the ratepayers of North Carlton beo pro pared at once, asking Councillor Richard son to resign his position as councillor, iii conscquence of his non-attendance at the debate of the proposed loan at the City Council." This resolution, Sir, has no doubt beenread by a laro number of the ratepayers, and they, like myself; have boen anxiously waiting to see this requisi tion (it may be to sign it or 6therwise), but have neither seen nor heard asnythiish of it. Can you, M?r. Editor, inform me if the requisition above quoted has been signed by any of the ratopayers, and if so, has it been presented to Councillor Rich. ardson ? Further comment by me on this subject will be guided by your reply, should y...
