CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] THE BALLARAT MINING BOARD. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 November 1867
CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] &nbsp; THE BALLARAT MINING BOARD. &nbsp; To the Editor of the Express. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SIR,–In perusing one of your late issues, my attention was directed to a letter purporting to be from an inidividual named Hansen; but whether &nbsp; the letter referred to emanated from the brain of that nonentity, or not, I am scarcely in a position to say. However, the people of Blackwood are rather curious about the authorship of the docu- &nbsp; &nbsp; ment, as they are well aware of Mr. Hansen's &nbsp; utter inability to indite such an epistle. Under these circumstances, it surprises me that he should be so much afflicted with cacoethes scribendi. I had for some time entertained a hope that any personalities arising out, of the late Mining Board election had been forg...

To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 November 1867
To t1he Editor of the E??ress. Sin-It is now over twelve months since I asked for a small space in your columns; but being a reader of the E?xpress, I observed a letter in your issue of the 2nd instant, purporting to be in answer to "Hlonesty's" letter, which appeared in your journal of the 26th ult. Mr. Kelly's letter does not appear to me to be an answer, but he evidently tries to throw dust in the eyes of the public, and to misconstrue "Ilonesty's" letter. However, I am not going to pass judgmont on either at present; but I should like to know if Mr. Kelly is the Engineer who acted to the Saudridge Borough Council, and I may trouble you at greater length in my neot. I am, sir, your most obedient servant, OnssnvE?, Ballan, 4th November, 18(7.
GISBORNE. POPULAR READINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 November 1867
GISBORNE, (FRoMI OUt OWN COusIESPONoENI.) POPUT~LA READINGS. '1'Pa first of the Gisborno 'bpuhtr Readings took place on Tuesday evening, in the hall of the Mechanics' Institute. The attendance was not so numerous as might have been expeooted, partly in consequence of a meeting in the township the same evening of the Ancient Order of Forester s; yet, as nearly all who did attend choes to pay the maximum charge for admission-ono shilling-the receipts at the door amounted to.2 J's., exclusive of a donation from T. F, Hamilton, Esq. of l1. Mr. H. H. Dixon was voted to the chair, and referred in a few remarks to the object of these Readings; and stated that if found to succeed they would be continued at intervals of about a fortnight. He then called upon Mr. Stephen, who, in a very pleasing manner, road a humorous extract from Hfnliburton, on " Nature, and humina nature." Mr. William Hastings recited "Petoler M'Craw, the tax-gatherer," with the Scotch accent suitablo to the character. Mr...
BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 November 1867
BALLAN, A IEETING Of the Demonstration Coulmittee was held at the IMechanics' Instituto on Monday night, when a good deal of progress was reported. The sub-committee appointed to select a suitable spot for the pic-nio reported that in their opinion it should be held either at liradshaw's Creek, or on the reserve by the Werribeo, opposite the Presby. terian Church. They thought that the former plceo offered the greater natural advantages, but the objection to it was the distance from Ballan and the dilliculty of obtaining vehicles for the conveyance of the children. Besides this, there were a great many subscribers from Myrniong and Greendale, and the ro-ervo was a more central place than the other. MIr. Short said that the convenience of the Egerton and tlordons people should be considered, as well as that of the Myrniong and Greendalo subscribers. It was stated, however, that the inhabitants of Egerton and Gordons intended to have a demonstration of their own, and probably would io...

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 0, 1867. POLITICAL lmatters are still in a most un settled state. The Legislative Council hans thrown out the temporary Supply Bill which the Assembly passed with a view of enabling' the Govornmeont of the country to be carriel on, pending a general election to show whether the country really desired that the DARLING vote should be carried, and that, moreover, it should be carried in such a way as the Assembly might see fit to have it passed. What will now he dlone cannot be known by our readers until the receipt of the Melbourne papers of this day, and probably not then, as the latest informaution we have at the time of writing' states that His Excellency the GOVERNOR had asked for time to reply to a minute submitted by Mr. M'CULLOCII, What the nature of that minute is can only be a subject of runlour, at present, but the Opposition thin hope that Hils EXCELLENCY will not agree to the advice tendered, and will seek other advisers.

C00 RRESPONDE NE. [ We are not responsible for the opinions expresscd by our correspondents.] RATEPAYERS, BEWARE I T'o the Editor of the Express. Sn-At a mooeeting of the Bacchus Marsh Road Board, held on Monday last, a motion was made by AMr. Young to the offect that each subdivision of the distriot should receive its fair share of moneys, according to the r?mount of rates collooted within such subdivision; and that the Pontland Hills subdivision having received L hlarger amount than its due, the excess be returned to the other subdivisions entitled thereto. Sir, judge my surpriso when I saw that the motion was lost by a largo majority, 1 thought thnit the members for the Buacchus Marsh and Parwan subdivisions were not doing their ditty towards the ratopnyers, or they would have voted for the motion. Now, sir, as there is to be an olection in the course of a few days, I would call upon all my follow.ratepayors to boware how they vote, and not to vote for ony one unless he gives his...

BALLAN SHIRE ENGINEER. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 November 1867
IBALLAN SHIRE ENGINEER. T'o the Editor of the Express. Sin--It is with regret that I have to take notice of the Shire Engineer's letter, which appeared in your last issue. 'Phe same is such a vile produc. tion, teeming with solf-presumption and vain-glory that it ought to be treated with contempt; but he acouses me of saying there was a hole in his coat, and that a member of the Council screened him. Sir, 1 give both accusations an unqualified denial, and refer the readers of your valuable journal to my last letter. But no doubt the cap fitted well, and the shoe pinched hard, and as a matter of course Mr. Kelly give vent to his natural feeling, and thundered forth his low slang, expecting to knock me into the next world. "Government Contract Surveyor" still denies being the author of " Ratepayer's" letter; but, sir, there are more ways of killing a dog than hanging him. Is it not possible that the "Chub" himself was the originator of " Ratepayer's" letter, and that his man Friday fo...
