PARLIAMENTARY REPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 15 June 1867

PARLIAM1ENTARY REPORTING. Fewv people who read at their breakfast table the report of a long debate which has taken place in the Legislative Assembly on the night previous, are aware of the time and trouble which have been spent over the columns of matter which they have before them. The extracts which we give below from an article which appeared in the I1 slustrated London ?rews of a recent date will furnish much information on the sub, ject. It will lbe seen from this how la borious is the work of a parliamenttary re porter. And here we would remark, as an instance of the advancement which the col onial press has made, and the perfection to which it has attained, that while a London daily sends seven reporters to the HIouse of Comnmons, the Argus sends five gentlemen to "do" the Victorian Parliament, and one to write the summary of the proceedings. The following are extracts from the article referred to : "When Mr. Gladstone has spoken one hour, his discourse will nearly fill thre...

The works in connection kvitlhthe graving dock at Williamstown, which, have been described from time to'time in these columns, (says the Ar-us,) do not appear'to be inak. ing very rapid progress. The ipresent con tractor, Mr. Jas. Leggatt," undertook to carry out 150 feet of the dock, in: hddition to the seventy, feet executed by Messrs. Glaister m.d Co., the second p;oition'of the. dock to be nine feet wider, and 4ft. Gin. deeper, than the first. But in consequence of the construction by the Imperial Govern inent of iron-clad ships of much, greater draught of water than anlly previously exist ing, it was determined to take up the portion' of the dock put down by the first contl i tors, .and mlake the whole of "t uniforml width and depth. This alteration of thle original plan has, of comure, ca!sed a "renit delay. Tile time originally fixed for the completion of the second section expired -i month ago, and thile contactor has still a great deal to d...

JUNE 15th, 1867. THosE persons who have not been in the colony a sufficient length of tiie to entitle them to be rinked as "old chums" will be at'a loss to understand the case which Mr John FosterVeseyFitzgeraldconsiders he has made out against the Victorian Government, from whom he claims the sum of -l4,000. The old coloriists who are resident amongst us will, however, be fully conversant with the facts, as MIr J. F. V. Fitzgerald, better known is MIr Foster, was the first gentleman who representedWilliamstown in theLegisla tive Assembly under the new Constitution Act. In the year 18.53 Captain Lonsdale, the Colonial Secretary, resigned, and MIr Foster was appointed in his place. At the request of Sir CharlesHotham, the Governor, he' resigned about sixteen months after wards, having during that period so bungled the aflairs of the colony as to seriously in jure it financially, and having byhis unskilfill legislation been the means of producing the outbreak which took place among th...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 15 June 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK. A bazaar in aid of a fund for the erection of a new wing to St. Luke's Church, Emerald hill, was opened on Monday evening in; the local Mechanics' Institute. We observe that the Star Life Assurance Society of London has opened a branch office in Melbourne. The kangaroos on the Cobran and Thule Stations, Riverina, have become such a nui sance that tenders are invited for destroying them. A skate, whichweighed not less than 1101b., has been caught off One-tree Point, at the mouth of the Derwent, in Tasmania. About 200 or 300 men have been discharg ed from the Taradale section of the water works, the reason assigned being the want of funds. A young m?iu named' Macpherson lost his life a few days ago at Ileywood, by the over turning of a dray which he was. driving in the dark along the road from Branxholme. A youtht stuck up a little girl in the neigh bourhood- of Eaglehawk lately, and robbed her of £5, which she was taking home to her fitther. One of .the Daisy-hill t...

THE LATE FIRE AT WILLIAMS TOWN.   Dr. Maclean held an inquest at the Harp of Erin Hotel, Williamstown, on Monday afternoon, into the cause of the fire which occurred in Cecil street on the morning of the 29th ultimno, by which the house of Patrick Ryan was burned down. Inspector Beaver conducted the inquiry, and Mr. Hughes, solicitor, appeared to watch the case for Ryan. The inquiry lasted several hours, during which a large number of wit- nesses were examined. The statements of Ryan and his wife were to the effect that Mrs. Ryan left Williamstown at four p.m. on the 28th alt, and proceeded to Mel- bourne, where she remained all night Ryan also went to Melbourne on, the same evening, and stopped at the Bay View hotel.

THE QUARRIES. [To the Editor of the CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 15 June 1867

THE QUARRIES [To the Editor of the CHRONICLE.) SiR, ---Allow me, please, a smiall space in the local paper to explain some ~grievances we quarrymen labour under. First, we pay most extravagantly for the use of a very   small bit of ground to toil on; the govern ment fee is excessive, we give fees at the rate of £400 an acre for taking out stone, and the land is left to them, while they will actually sell the same land outright for £50 an acre. Then the Borough Council make us pay rates for our-houses, then for our quarries; and taking it all in all, I think we are about as ill-used a set of men as there is on earth—this part of the earth     anyhow. We have for all this go about   fifty yards of road in about five years. We find it hard to make ends meet, or get meat,   and wish to set public opinion to the idea that some of these burdens can, may and must be removed.   If the government will only charge u...
