SNOBS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 March 1871

SNOBS. (Br O?;E.) To say this world's a world of snobs, Is just a truth most commonplace; Gross "'-sobbery" le vens the whole race,. From kings and peers to Toms and Bobs. I will not make a friend of you, Because your wealth is less than mine ; While you about your " family " whine, And brag of blood extremely " blue." There's Sims discreetly cuts young Sparke, His chosen friend in days of yore; For Sims writes "merchant " on his door, While 'tother's but a simple clerk. Hortensia Higgs is far below The notice or Sophronia Spool ; For "Miss " Sophronia keeps a school, While Higgs " works." at a factory low. Then Mrs Moggs and Mrs Ker, One "gets up linen," 'tother " chares ;' When M" :ueets K. she coldly stares D'ye think she'd speak to "sich as 'er." And so goes on the wretched game; Snobs all, yes all, from prince to peasant, Not excepting e'en the present Scribe; he takes his share of blame.

Smn,-I have the honor to make the following report on the Stockyard Creek Goldfield, tho materials for which I have been collecting since my iarival here on the 12th current: The number of people here, who are all engaged in mining, with the exception of a few storekeeperi, I have found by enumera tion to be 229; however, on account of the dense nature of the serub anti forest in this locahty, it is possible I may have omitted some few. The number might equal 250, which will perhaps be nearer the truth. The workings here are chiefly alluvial, four distinct runs of gold having been discovered. The first of importance is that on the west bank of Stockyard Cre...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 March 1871

Touching the question as to whether the Romans suffered from toothache, a corres pondent of a London paper suggests the following may not be without interest: "Some years ago, at Weymouth, I saw a museum in which were preserved the skulls both of Romans and of Britons,. which had been found in the neighbourhood. Every Roman skull had 'decayed teeth, and every British skull had all the teeth sound." A beaten politician remarked, as the reason for his defeat in a debate, that his opponent happened to state just the only thing which he was not prepared to meet. "What was that?" inquired a friend. "The truth," was the reply;. "nobody ever heard of a politician stating the truth before." " Some short time since," writes the Wagga Wagga Advertiser, "a paragraph recommending the application of tar to the nostrils of cattle suffering from pleuro. pneumonia went the round of the papers The remedy. possessing the advantages both of economy and easiness of application, has been resorted to in ...

AN ADVENTURE WITE A BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 March 1871

AN ADVENTURE WITE A BURGLAR. I went to Covent Theatre one night last season. We were let out at twelve; and I set off to my lodgings I knocked; there was no answer, I knocl~'d again; a window was thrown up, and the landlady's head ap peared. "Who are you ?" she screamed. "Let's in, please; it's me!" I answered. " Then, Mr Me, if you don't come home afore ten, you may stay out till morning. I never wait up for my lodgers-my door is closed at ten !" and then the window closed with a bang. "No, good !" thinks I. "I've got no money. I'll go to a railway station, and wait in the waitingiroom till morning;" which resolution I proceeded to carry out by walking briskly for the Bank. I turned into TMoorgate-street, and was just thinking whether I should go to Lon dio, Brighton, and Southcoast, or the Lon don Bridge station. There was a confec tioner's shop just in front of me. Oh, that it were open ! I had threepence left. Just at this moment a tall, broads: shouldered man came up to me, and...

A TIMELY PARDON. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 March 1871

A TnrrEY PA?DO.,--A correspondent with the French Army of the West relates an incident which is certainly not without a parallel in military history : .-".The Ordonnance who escorted me was a highly interesting fellow. He told me be regretted sincerely having to leave his village home, but he could not stay there whilst the invader stood upon the soil of France. He also told me that a man in the same company as himself had, under the influence of drink, used mutinous and threatening expressions towards his superior, and had been condemned to be shot, All had been done to save his life. The paymaster, supported by a deputation of non-commissioned officers and comrades of the condemned man, had in vain attempted to obtain a mitigation of the sentence -the general was determined to enforce discipline, I am bound to say that I could not sleep for thinking of that wretched man; and when I sallied oat at early dawn to see the poor fellow sent to his last account, it was certainly not out ...

COLONIAL EXPERIENCE. THE EDUCATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 March 1871

COLONIAL EXPERIENCE. (By AN OLD CIIU.,). THE EDUCATION QUESTION. What is the matter.? The Education Question? That's it. As one thoroughly acquainted with the Common School, course of instruction in Victoria, since the passing. of the Common School's Act on the 1st day of September 1862, to this date, March 1871,. I will write my experience of the working of Common Schools, Local Committees, &c., &e, This document was penned 15 months ago, but never published, for various reasons. What a glorious opportunity to send it forth to the colony. Education is the battle cry. All right. Just take a dose of it from " Old Chum." I consider it nothing short of a crime for "instructors of youth" (another genteel term for teachers) to remain silent during this eventful period, when they can give so much information on this momentous, question. I would sooner part with my life than give up my independence in this free country. Let the readers of the "Free Press" carefully read ove...

HONOURED AS A CURIOSITY IN ONO LULU. -0-------- It you get into converssllon with a stranger in Honolulu, and experience that natural desire to know what sort of ground you are treading on by finding out what manner of man your stranger is, strike out holdly and address him as " Captain." Watch him narrowly, and if you see by his coun tenance that you are on the wrong track, ask him where he preaches. It is a safe bet that he is either a missionary or the captain of a whaler, I . became personally acquainted with seventy two captains and ninety mix missionaries. The captains and ministers form one half the population; the third fourth is composed of common Kanakas and mercantile for eigners and their families; and the final fourth if made up of high oficers of the Hawaiian governments And there are just about cats enough for three apiece all round. A solemn stranger met me in the suburbs one day and said : "Good morning your reverence. Preach in the stone church yonder no doubt?" "N...

PrBLISIaun THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 1871. OuR local contemporary had a full week to deny the statements set forth in our last issue relative to AMr. BouRrE's conduct as a politician, but, excepting vague generalities, unsubstantiated by even a semblance of truth, it has failed to perform anything else worthy of its champion; Mr BRoun6 may, in this instance, exclaim-" Save me from my friends;" indeed, the support of our contemporary, which during its short term in our midst, has gained anything but a character for veracity, is more dangerous to him than even the actions of his political opponents. It were just as easy for either Mr. Bocarc, or his truthful organ, make black white, or make the dirty water, in which they are continually "ly:ing" themselves, run up hill as to re move the impression on the people's mind that iMr. BOuIrs is anything but a con sistent politician.
