No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 5 May 1876

Tie: suem total of evil that is likely to be in licted upon this colony by *any prolonged continuance in office of Sir JAMES M'CULLOCHs's Mutistry, is some thing easy to forecast, terrible to con template, but almost implossible to calcu late. His regimeb will go down to history as a phase of political pestilence in the annals of Victoria. The sum of its consequences, like that of a physical pestilence, can alone be calculated when it is past. IHis policy reminds us of what a poot sanlg of a former phase of imlperial diplomacy, thus paraphrased " ie thought with a smile upon Englaud the while, And the trick that this statesmen had taught her, Of hiding himself from all stormns about, By putting her head under water." Remorseless as Asiatic cholera, it is impossible to divine the extent of the mischief he may consummate, as his motto palpably is-" Perish the country and people, so long .as Sir JAMis Mu'CusLocr swims in office." There is one evil, however, which' may confi dently be a...

SWEARING A FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 5 May 1876

SIEARIZNG A FRIEND. Judge M- 's brother S- was the re gistrar of court, and one of the most amusing characters I have ever met. I could relate scores of instances in which his "bulls" and other blunders have "set the table in a rear," and caused the sides of valetudinarian barristers and anxious suitors to ache with laughter, but one must suffice as a specimen. Handing the Testament to a witness one day, he proceeded to administer the oath with characteristic rapidity. "I am a Friend," replied the witness in a subdued tone "Awhat ?" "AFriend." The worthy registrar, who was a man of many friends, scanned the face of the witness with a puzzled look, and replied "I declare to heaven I never laid an eye on you before ?" "I am a Friend," repeated the witness. "Friend or no friend, don't you know you must take the book ?" remonstrated the Re gistrar. " The evidence you shall give the court sad jury in this case- " "I am a Friend." "Mother of Moses, isn't this enough to dhrive a saint mad ...

THE REV. R. K. EWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 5 May 1876

THE REV. R. K, EWING. 'lThe Ovens and Murray Adverliser pub lishes the six charges upon which the Rev. Rt. K. Ewing was recently ecxamined by a commtissioner of the Victorian Presbyterian Assembly. They are as follows : 1. It was averred that in the year 1848 he told a falsehood with reference to a month's salary alleged to have been due to him when. leaving one congregation for another in Tas mania. The matter at the time cane under the notice of the Tasmanian Piresbytery, and it was to them satisfactorily proved that the whole charge arose out of a mistake as to the date oni which a certain conversation took place, and the presbytery then, having care fully examined into the case, entered the fol lowing minute :--" We lind the matter arose in a misapprehension, for we have carefully traced the circumstances in which it had its origin." He was then at once admitted to the church, and his call to St. AIdrew's Church, Launcceson, sustained 2. After having disposed of this charge, the...

The document gives the finding of the board on each sepa rate charge. We now give the following abstract of it : 1. Charge relative to ,appointing C. W. Watkins,- a youth about cighteen, as draughtsman in the department. We find that this appointment was made, and we think that Mdr. Smyth has failed to justify it. 2. Saying that Mr. Langtrece was mani festly unfit to answer a certain question. This charge is proved. 3. Furnishing a false return to Parliament as to cost of the work on goldfields and mine ral districts of Victoria. Mr. Smyth munst be absolutely acquitted of this charge. 4. Having over-worked Mir.

RESCUE BY AN AMERICAN SHIP OF WESTERN AUSTRALIAN PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 5 May 1876

RESCUE BY AN AMERICAN SH IP OF WESTERN AUSTRALIAN PRISONERS. It appeais that the cause of the mail steamer not having brought any mail from Western Australia this trip was the fact of the Georgette, a small steamer, which usually tales the mail from Freemantle to King George's Sound, being required for other duty. By telegram received at Albany from Perth it is stated that the captain of an American whaler took off from the coast some ten or twelve men who formed portion of a chain gang working near. On this being reported the Georgette was dispatched by the Governor in pursuit, and, after a chase' succeeded in overhauling the ship, but, on a demand being made for the surren der of the convicts, the captain refused to give them up, on the ground that the Georg ette was not a commissioned yessel of war, :and had no right to- interfere with him on -the high seas, and he further declared that h-e would resist any attempt to board his vessel, and would treat the steamer as a pirate if s...

THE STEVENSON CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 5 May 1876

THE STEVENSON CASE. The dilatoriness of the Government in prosecuting Messrs. Stevenson for defraud ing the Customs has become the general topic of conversation amongst the trade and the public. Many are disposed to think that no case can be made out against the firm, and that the Customs authorities are only casting about with a view to retreating from their position with as little disgrace as possible. This is not, however, the case, though the extreme reticence observed by the officials is calculated to produce that impression. It is alleged that abundance of evidence is in the hands of the Government from sources the most unquestionable. The testimony given by no fewer than ten of the present emsployes of Messrs. Stevenson and Sons before the Customs board has been taken. If this testimony is correct, it will be proved that prior to 1870 the modts operandi consisted of taking the invoices from the heads of the department, which they had received to mark off the goods, and these ...

LIBRARY LECTURES. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 5 May 1876

LIBRARY LECTURES. (TO THIE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) Sin,--I notice by the Herald that the winter essays are about to start at the Colac Free Library in a short time, and that gentlemen about to take part in them are requested to send in their names and sub jects.. I would venture to suggest that the gentlemen who are about to lecture during the coming series should confine themselves to original essays, and not come forward with a plagiarised discourse on some scientific subject, as was the case on two or three occasions during the last series of essays. This is a very different course to what was intended when these essays were first started, anmd 1 hope that the orignal intention will now be adhered to a little more closely. One gentleman came forward last winter and delivered a lecture which had a fine-solmdlng name, but it only turned out to be a discourse on heat, stolen from one or two text books on the subject. There were other instances of this, but I forbear to bring them for...
