AN ANSWER TO A SLANDER. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876

AN ANSWER TO A SLANDER. (TO TIHE EDITOR OF TrIE HIERALD.) Srr,-In the last issue of the Colac Timss, viz., that of Wednesday, the 261th inst., a letter appeared signed " Fair Play" (save the mark). After referring to the fact that it is intruded to call upon Mr. J. IH.Comnor to hold a public meeting for the purpose of gizing an account of his stewardship, the writer proceeds to-give advice and express his opinion in the following Words :-" You hald better advise Mr. Cdonnor not to make a fool of himself by doing'anything of the kind. We all know the general nature of the meet ings in Colac. A certain clique get together' a lot of rowdies, and after kicking up a dis graceful hubbub, only heap disgrace upon the district." Now, Sir, was ever a m?ore gratuitous insult offered, or a more men dacious statement pemnned?h tha the foregoing?!' The great dramatist might,' well exclaim, "Be thou as pure as ice, as chaste's snowd, thou caust not escape calunniit".' Of all the varieties of his m...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876

NOTES AND VtNLTS'? We publish in our present issue a copy of the requisition which has been forwarded to Mr. J. H. Connor, M.L. A., for holding a public meeting in Colac to explain his political conduct: -The requisition is signed by nearly every business man in the town ship, and also by many prominent residents. Mr. Connor's reply; should be favorable, especially whes it is considered that he distinctly promised to hold such a meeting some time since. We will not further com ment upon the matter at present; we prefer waiting for Mr. Connor's answer to the re- quisition. However, we may remark, that " our member" can scarcely afford to treat the requisition cavalierly. A meeting of the Stewards of the late Birregurra Races took place at that township on Monday evening last, in order decide the protest entered by I'r. F. Archer against the money for the Maiden Plate being awarded to Mr. J. Day, the owner of the horse, Young Erin, on the ground that the horse had previously won a rac...

' BXLTRlORZINARY COUVi)DUCI OP POLIC'1,ME . The inhabitants of the township of Pens hurst were thrown into a state of excitement a few days ago by reason of the action of the policemen stationed there in their treatment of one of the most popular of the commercial travellers of the district, whose nmne the Belfast Banner, from which we gather the particulars, withholds. As he was travel ling in the jewellers' interest, he had in his possession some thousands of pounds worth of goods, besides close on £200 in money and valuables abbout his person. On Tues day night the traveller had stepped out side his hotel, when he was rudely accosted by a constable, who told him that unless he at once went inside the hotel he would.take him in charge and lock him up for the night.

THE EDUCATION OF ANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

."Il?lE EDUCATION, OF AZT'S Sir John Lubbock .has been testing his aints again, and yet again finding them want ilg. He has placed a glass hive on a pole, andi on the other side of the pole has con trived a wooden promenade for the ants, with paper bridges from it placed at inter" vals, leading to three pieces of glass, on two of which there was no food," while the third contained a supply of food. .Sir John Lub bock then taught tw o ants-artifically marked with a spot of color, so as to be re cognisable-their way.to t. he. food, guiding' tlem over the. righlt bridge.

UNTTEILIN' TilE-1 LINICOLJN STATUE. A Washingtoni despatch of 14th April says :-The unveiling of the Lincoln statue in Lincoln-square, in the eastern portion of this city, was the main feature of to-day's legal holiday.

FACT AND THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

.FACT AND THEORY. We (the I?drald)on .,Monday inspected cer tain cotton cloth, imported by Messrs. King and Parsons. It was manufactured at the Androscoggin Mhills, Maine, and is pro nounced by experts to be superior ill quaility to the English mamnfactured article, the price being S.d per yard, as against 91d for Masnchester goods. It has been the, fashion of the Free Traders' to ask for facts and figures to prove that Protectioni in the long run not only increases the manufacturing in dustries of a country, but also cheapens them to the community itself. One fact is worth a volume of 'cmere aigument. Here is Americas with a persistent duty of 313 per cent. on cotton manufactures, now not only supplying her own teeming thousiands, but exporting the goods to England herself at a lower price than the British mills can pro duce them, and of better quality. Proteection has done this munch for the States in one manufacture alone. It has started factories that without it could not have c...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

IT is a misfortune to the country that the initial administration of a measure of such great present and prospective public importance as the Education Act should have remained so long in the hands of a Minister under Mr. KEn FEan's Government, and that its subse quent administration should have then fallen into the hands of the present Government. Conceived as a political device to gain a party triumph, rather than in the public interests, it is now about to be misapplied to the same purpose. The same men who subordi nated the interests of Education to those of party are about to do so again. However we may be opposed to Sir JAuEs M'CULLOCI, we will not do him the injustice to assert that he would "suggest" any tampering with the Education Act, however he might "consent" to it. And although as much may be allowed of some of his colleagues, there are two of them of whom it cannot be said-Messrs. KER FERD and GILLIES. Those two honor able melhbers were erewhile rabid Denominationalis...

THE UNIVERSITY BOAT RACE. LONDON, 8th April. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

TlE UNVIV.ERSIT'Y BOAT RACE. Lo.Dox, Sth April. The annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race was rowed on 8th April, upon the Thames, from Putney to -Mortlake, in the presence of an immense multitude, which far outstripped in numbers the spectators of any previous year. Oxford won the toss for choice of position, and selected the Middle sex side as the more favorable. Both crews launched their boats at twelve minutes to two p.m., and rowed down to the starting place, which is exactly 200 yards above the aqueduct at Putney.' The boats were got into their position at three minntes to two p.m. Oxford rowed in the newest of the two boats, built for her by Clasperz the Ox ford boat builder, while Cambridge occupied the new boat built for them by Swaddle and Winship, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, it having developed better qualities than their Searle boat. The race began at 2h. 2min. 17sec. p.m. Both crews caught the water at the same moment, Cambridge getting off a little quicker than their antagon...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The harvest having been late has thrown the sowing season somewhat backward, but so far the prospects are very favorable. Since the recent welcome rains the land has been put in excellent condition for the seed, and sowing is being rapidly pushed forward. Wheat sowing in the new areas is well for ward, and wouldl have been altogether finished but for the fact that operations have been hindered to a large extent by the work of carting the late season's crop to market, a work which has taken up much time owing to the great distance to be traversed. With railways (which, owing to the charac ter of the new country, can be more cheaply constructed than roads) extended' to the centres round which the larger portion of our cereals are now produced, not only would. the settlers obtain about a shilling a bushel extra for their produce, but much valuable time would be placed at their disposal, so as to enable them to get their newo crop in early, which is a matter of great...

PORT DARWIN. UNION, April 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

PO?T 'DARWTIN." U?sox, April 22. It seems from the latest news we have re ceived by cable that settleicent is to be com menced at last in the Nortlhern Territory. WTveIlve received information, witlhout any delinite particulars, that a large body of Soutlhern Russians residing near the present scene of contetion have fixed on this country as a place where their lives and property will be secure, where they can settle down' in peace. An itinerant missionary visited here soime tinme ago, represceting hiniself as the ambassador of an oppressed class of Russian subjects, and wished to obtain a large bilock of land from the South Australian Govern ment. It is probable that lie has secured the land lie required, and that his religious followers have takec up thelirlaresand penates and embarked for the Territory. They are, in all probability, a body of co-religionists who have dissented from the Greek Church, and consequently are equally obnoxious to Turk and lRussian. At the same time, th...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 30 April 1876

PUBLIC IBETIiVG. Pursuant to advertised notice, a public meeting was held at the Oddfellows' Hall, on Saturday evening, 27th instant, "for the purpose of placing on a legitimate basis the opiiuon of the electors of this district respect ing Mr. Connor's explanation of his political conduct." This meeting was called by several of the prominent members of the Liberal party in Colac, in consequence of the unfair and garbledreport of the previous meeting which had appeared in our local subsidised contemporary, and also because Mr. Connor and lsis supporters had the meanness to take advantage of the patient hearing given to that gentleman, and declare that the result of the last meeting was fa vorable to him. The attendance was very large,'and there were about as many persons present as were at Mr. Connor's mndeting on the 18th instant. The hall was filled to its utmost capacity. Mr. J. v.

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. The e reports :-The markets were not .largely operated in to-day. Breadstuffs are fully maintained, holders being very stiff in their demands, notwithstandinmg a marked slackness in the trade inquiry for flour; prices therefore are firmly upheld, without, however, being characterised by an advan cing tendelricy. The city millers are selling flour at £12 10s, and a little over in some instances. Country brands are steady at £12 5s. Good Northern wheat is firm at 5s J._,Od to 5s l Id, bags included; prime Western is saleable at 5s 10.ld. In feeding grains the scarcity of maize keeps up the value of this ; the price is nominally quoted at 4s 3d, but buyers may experience some difficulty in 6periating at the price..

There were about twenty members present, and the President of the branch, Mr. T. E. Monan, occupied the chair. After some preliminary business had been disposed of, the conduct of two members of the League was brought under the notice of the meeting. Ait enquiry was made into the circumstances of the case, and, after due consideration, it was decided that the two individuals in question had been guilty of conduct inimical to the inte rests of the League, and thatit was desirable that they should in consequence be expelled. A motion was accordingly brought forward for their expulsion, and it was carried unan imously. In consequence of the lateness of the hour, the discussion which was to have taken place otn Annual Parliaments was postponed until next meeting.
