FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 March 1871

FIJI. The correspondent of the Sydney Morning Korald writing on the 2nd February, after narrating the particulars of the. massacre on board the Marion Benny, the account of which we have before quoted, says - Mr Henning. has made arrangements for the ketch Wild Duck to proceed to the island to ascertain Bae's fate, and it is highly probable that the massacore will be amply arenged. Mr ,ae was not married, and leaves no relations in Fiji. He had made several trips to the islands, and was universally liked. My next item is an oset of cannibalism on Ovalan, a few milke from Lvruka. The Luvoni men (moun taineers) have been for a long time at variance with Thakombau's people on this island, and on Thursday last decided to attack Tokolau (a coast town some five miles from Levnka) ; their plans were made known.to Tin Levuks and Thakombia, who sent the customary whales' teeth, and warned them to desist in their rebellion. The Luroni people found that Oornelin, chiefof Yaravadi, a Lavoni mau...

A FEW WORDS OF CHRISTMAS ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 March 1871

A FEW WORDS OF CHRIS'PMAS ADVICE. FROM AN OLD WOMAN TO HER GRANDSONS AGED TWELTE, ON BIS GOING OUT THIE CHRISTMAS INTO IOUSES WHERE THERE MAY BE A MISTLETOE BOUGH. The yenerality of woman, from six years unward, do not particularly mind being kissed, though they may say so. It is, however, advisable to perform the ceremony with becoming propriety, and without unseemly. baste, Therefore, do not bob at the lady, like a fish at a fly, and catch her on the top of her ear or the end of her nose, It is as well if the gentleman is nearly as tall as the lady he salutes; otherwise he had bett-r first mount upon a footstool, which he might take with him under his arm, so as to be provided against such emirgenciee. Those women who object to a kiss seldom grumble at two ; this is worth remembering. Kissing is ocaesionally made legal without any special act of Parliament, but, as a role, is punisht able under the Trespass Act, 4 Vie. 1V., c. 9. Under co circumstances is it allowable on a Sun day...

KILMORE ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 2 March 1871

KILMORE ANNUAL RACES. The Kilmore annual races of 1S71 were, to say the least of them, a success, even though the very inclement weather of Thursday, the 23rd February, on which day they were to be held, necessitated a postponement to the following day, with the consent of most of the stewards, owners of horses, and nearly everyone concerned. It was fortunate, indeed, for all who intended visiting the course that a postponement took place, and we may state if anything else were decided upon injury would be inflicted upon booth holders and others who speculated largbly to turn in an honest penny, besides the wishes of the subscribers and the general public would not be so well met. Friday morning dawned brightly, but about six o'clock the sun became clouded and the air moist and disagreeable. About ten o'clock, however, a sharp breeze from the south dispelled the idea of another Het day, and the sun shone forth again smilingly as if determined .to show his ascendancy over the black c...

"I MIGHT HAVE BEEN MORE KIND." "LONDON LYRICS," BY FREDERICK LOCKER. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 March 1871

"I MIGHT HA TE BEEN MORE KIND." " LONDON LYIUICS," BY FREDERICK LOCKER. Her quiet resting place is far away, None dwelling there have wept for her sad story Tue stones are mute. The stones could only say, " An humble spirit pass'd away to glory." She loved the murmur of the-mighty town, The lark rejoiced her from hislatticeprison; A streamlet soothes- her now,- the bird has flown- Some dust is waiting there--asoul has risen. No city smoke to stain the heather bells, Sigh, gentle winds, around my lone love sleeping, She bore her burden here, but now she dwells Where scorner never came, and none are weeping. My name was falter'd with her parting breath These arms were round my darling at the latest; All scenes of death are woe-but painful death In those we dearly love is surely greatest. I could not die: He willed it otherwise; My lot is here, and sorrow, wearing older, Weighs down the heart, yet does not fill the eyes, And even friends may think that I am colder,. I might have been m...
