ORIGIN OF THE TERM "LOAFER" [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 February 1871

ORIGN OF THE TERM " ALOAFER."-An old Dutchman settled at New Yorkr, and acq aired a considerab'e fortune. He had an only daughter, and a young American fell in Jove with her, or her dollars, or both. The old man forbade him his house, bat tha daughter encouraged him. Whenever the old mer chant saw the young man about the premises he uned to exclaim to his daughter, "There is that 'lofer' (lover) of yours, the idle good for nothing." So the word "loafer" got into use as representing an idle, shiftless fellow. The Detroit Tribune' says that a resident of that city observed a man whom he did not care to see coming towards his house, and hurriedly instructed the servant to tell the person he was not at home. "All right sir," said Bridget, as she made haste to answer the door bell. "Is Mr----at home ?" inquired the caller. "Faith an' he's gone out," re sponded the obedient servant. " When will he be at home ?" asked the man. Hould on a minunit," put in Bridget, "an' I'll ax him !" DEATH ...

THE UNFORTUNATE BALLOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 February 1871

THE 1UNFORTUNATE BALL O?QS. The ill-luck of a great many balloon- from Paris is not to be wondered ar, when we cnusider that professional aeronauts ara a very restricted body of men; and that as those who months ago c:mne out of Paris, one after the other,. could' nob ge, back, it soon became necessary to res:,.' to th.: unskilful, or at least the inexperienced. A Colonel who left paris in a b?l!oon has ren dered'a lamentable account of the want of skill and presence of mind of the aeronaut with whom he travelled; This balloon left Paris at five in the morning, and with the fear that it might fall within the ?;,usian lines, the aeronaut received general direc tions to descend about four in the afternoon. But the wind was very strong, and the bal lonn went westward at a great rate. The colonel recognised at an early hour of the day the town of Rannes, in Brittany, and then strongly urged the aeronaut to' descend, as they were manifestly out of reach of the Prussians. But he looked at...

Dear Mr 2Editor,- I.have noticed in some of the country papers that the candidates for Parliamentary honors. have been endcavouring to raise funds for local charities by assisting at concerts, popular readings, ic., and that their efforts have been crowned with success.

GENERAL TROCHU PREPARING FOR EXTREMITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 February 1871

GENERAL TROCIHU PREPARING FOR EXTREMITIES. The plan attributed to General Trochu, whether successful or otherwise, may be taken as evidence of his strategical ability. It is supposed that he intends to convert Mont Valerien into a vast citadel, to which he may repair with the bulk of his effectwe forces whenever the extremities to which Paris is being rapidly reduced may render his position within the walls untenable. The sorties of Wednesday and Thursday se'nnight which the General had been preparing by three weeks of incessant exertions were intended by him for a decisive effort, and were locked forward to by the beleagured population with the anticipation of full success. Those sorties, however, were failures. If Paris has no longer a chance of fighting singlelhanded, and if relief from the Depart1 ment is too remote and uncertain, General Trochu probably reasoned that a prolonga tion of the present state of things might involve the eventual necessity of a capitula tion, which, n...

(To the Editor of the Free Press.) SIR,-In your issue of the 12th of January last, you done me a justice in allowing me a small space in your valuable columns to bring before the public, and my fellow ratepayers, what many others and myself consider a gross injustice.. I then pointed out what a paragon of perfection the Goulburn Valley Road Board ~ere, and that the ratepayers would have to pay dear for their (the Board's) folly. Yet, my remarks are now endorsed by their own acts, as appears by the pro ceedings of their Board, piiblihed in your issue of the 2nd inst. I find the C:erk was instructed to invite applications until noon on Monday the Gth instant, from persons willing to undertake the duties of Clerk of Works for Hughes' Creek Bridge, without any explanation whatsoever is to the cause. To strangers unacquainted with the actions of this Board such a course may appear fair, but sir I will ask you if their clerk and surveyor is not competent to superintend this piece of work,...

(To the Editor of the Free Press.) [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 February 1871

(To the Editor of the. Free Press.) SIR,--I address myself at once on the talk of the day.-the Kilmore Election. I have this to say on the coming contest, for a con test it will be, for.I firmly believe that our three candidates, Messrs Bourke, Fynn, ind Meade, intend going to the poll, for the electors to keep a bright look out, and not to be hood-winked by handing . over their electoral rights and.privileges to any com mittee outside the Borough of Kilmore. It appears that a certain number of individuals, living in Melbourne, are willing to give us a helping hand in selecting a candidate, and that candidate we must back up, and, if possible to place at the head of the poll. 1 hope the electors of Kilmore will kick at such interference, and stand by a local re presentative. My advice at this juncture is, that the Kilmore Election be left entirely in the hands of the electors of the electoral district of Kilmore. AN ELECTOR. P.S.-I hope that the candidates already named will fight i...

A W )OMEN'S MEETING AT VIOLE' T TOWN; [BENALLA ENSIGN; 11TH 1EBRUAhY.] A meeting, as announced in the BenallI Ensign Pf the 4th ins,: was held byM r Orr, `a?thi :tommercial Hotel, Violet Town, on Tuesday evening last. There were barely half a dozen electors present during the evening, but they were well represented by their better halves, there being twenty or thirty of the fair sex in attendance, netwith. standing the inclemency of the weather. Mr Orr being rather dilatory in making his appearance, the ladies decided on holding a meeting themselves, and voted Mrs Bayle, sen, the great.grandmother of the district, to the chair. The proceedings were commenced by investigating the case of Mrs O'Halloran, who was in attendance and the following extract from the letter of an " Elector" in the Benalla Ensign of the 28th January being read, Mrs O'Halloran declared it to be quite correct :-" Some time previous to. the last general election, a poor woman named O'Halloran purchased several a...

AUSTRALIAN NEUTRALITY. (SPECTATOR, DECEMBER 3.) [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 February 1871

.A STiRALIAN NEUTRALITY. (SPECTATOn, DEOEMBER 8.) Mr Gavan Duffy and his associates, who have been engaged, as we reported some time ago, in the preparation of a report as to the federation of the Australian colonies, have presented that report to the Victorian. Government, and included in it a proposal that the new federation should be neutralised -i.e., should not take part in England's wars, but be regarded as the lonian Islands were during the Crimean war, as an independent State under the English protectorate,--not bound to share in its quarrels. It would never do. A State really independent and able to negociate independently with other States, would never endure to have a sovereign at the Antipodes whom it never saw, and whose views in appointing a viceroy would necessarily be. influenced by other con-, siderations than the good of the colony Besides, when you destroy the substance of a relation, you had 'better destroy its form too, Alliances between equals would be f?ar bet...

Selected Poetry. AN UNPUBLISHED POEM OF BYRON. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 February 1871

AN UNPUBLISHED POEM OF , BYRON. ----+~---- By the courtesy of the present owner' of Lord Byron's autograph copy (Lady Frances V. Harcourt), the "Pall Mall Gazette'' has been enabled to publish to the world the foh lowing beautiful poem,. which has intrinsic merits, independent of the special interest which at this juncture attaches to everything written by the much assailed poet. The first stanza of this unpublished piece has been incorrectly quoted in the "Quarterly Review," but the following is the correct version of the whole: Go triumph securely, the treacherous vow Thou hast broken, I keep but too faithfully now,; But never again shalt thou be to my heart, What thou wert, what I fear for a moment thou art. To see thee-to love thee--what breast could do more ? To love thee to lose thee-'twere vain to deplore. Not a sigh shall escape from the heart thus beguil'd, I will bear like a man what I feel like a child. though a frown cloud my brow, yet it lowers not on thee, Though my he...
