A PrUnIo mooting was heold on Monday night, at the Mechanics' Institute, anc.chus Marsh, to arrange for a demonstration. in honour of the visit of H.R1H. the Duke of Edinburgh to Victoria. There were about forty persons present. Mr. James Young, J,P., was voted to the chair. lie was sorry to see that the loyalty of Bacchus Marsh was not displayed in greater force. At one time, B3acehus Marsh used to take the lead in these matters ; but things seemed difflront now, from some cause or other. Perhaps it would be better if this mooting were to appoint a Committee, and remit the matter to a meeting the next night, after the Readings. The Bald Hill had boon suggested as a situ for a bouniro, aid with it little organisation no doubt a good deal could be done to show our spirit and energy as an agricultural district.

BACCHUS MARSH POPULAR READINGS. T'I'sm last of the series of Popular Readings was given on Tuesday evening, in the Meohanics' Institute, Bacchus Marsh. There was a fair attendance, though the hall was by no means crowded. The chair was taken by Mr. W. Watson, who remarked that the Committee of the Institute had determined to make this evening's entertain mont the last of the series, as they noticed that the other Committees throughout the colony wero doing the same. They had prepared a good and lengthy progrnmme, which they hoped would meet with the approbation of those present. Messrs. Roberteon and Carton conmmenced the ontertainment with an instrumental performance; Mr. Carlton on the violin and Mr. Rohortsonr on the harmonium. This received a well."merited encore, which was, howuvor, doolined. Mr. Wood read Byron's poem, " The Evening before Water. loo," which was applauded. Mi.

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 November 1867

BLACKWOOD.. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)   THE action taken by Mr. Millyard, our local repre- sentative in the Ballan Shire Council, in relation to the absurd proposal for the erection of an elaborate and costly Shire Hall, has been fully appreciated by the ratepayers of Blackwood. Mr. Millyard has secured the approbation of the rate- payers by the blunt and straightforward course which he assumes in the efficient discharge of his arduous duties. It would be a very difficult matter for a representative to satisfy everybody; but it must be conceded, even by those who differ from Mr. Millyard, that he has been very attentive to the interests of the Riding of which he is one of the representatives, and I have every reason to believe that the majority of the ratepayers will acknowledge the truthfulness of my remarks long before his present term of office expires. The proposal made at one of the late meetings of the Ballan Council to expend about £1000 of the incoming rates...

CULTIVATION OF PRAIRIE GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 23 November 1867

CULTIVATION OF PRAIRIE GRASS. [n?aO 'T'NE " aTAnRt) aTSlTA."] n R, 0. TONNER, of East Bellerine, is more in favour of 'prairie grass than Mr. James Dickinson, its enthusiastic advocate, and assures the farming community that the only" risk of fhilure is in obtaining genuine seed. I The writer, who was chairman of a meeting at which Mr. Dickinson advocated the impor tance of cultivatiing prairie grass, admits that he thonught the lecturer too sanguine in his expectations concerning the plant, but acknowledges tlhat himself and neighbours can say more in praise of the grass than the i lecturer himself said. Mr. Tonner assures the' ftrming community of the success which t has attended the efforts of himself and friends when iacting under the directions of Mr. Dickinson, and we are disposed to second his generous advocacy. The lecturer proves that prairie grass mainifests a greater indifference to the consistence or niineralogical character of the soil than any other cattle food; it can...

Not long in valley rich with waving grain, Not long to wait for profit of the sowing, For crownbd sheaves of corn and heaped.up wain, 'he foields have ripened in the sun of summer, The sweet winds woo and kiss the laden oars, Which bond a moment to the fragrant coiner And then again flash out as golden spears. Soon will the harvest come I When will the harvest come ? Of toilsome action and of wearying thought, Long waiting in the shadow of great sorrow, Heart lessons oftentimes most dearly bought, The anxioitslooking for a better morrow ? When will thie hIrvest come of all our sowing? When will the love he garnered into store Which in old time seemed wasted in bestowing Will it return, increasing more and more ? When will the harvest come P When will the harvest comeo hoe full fruition of the words once spoken, The hopes we cherished and the prayers we spod P It may...

'J'horeo wore knives, forks, spoons and glasses 'to buy, plates and dishes to beg or borrow, the greasy poles und the tables to sot up, &o. However, mauny hands make light work, especially when they work with a will, and by one o'clock on Saturday, the 16th inst., the feast was made ready. Tables were erected all round the shed in the Show.yards; in the centra wore placed a hogshead and two barrels of ale, and at both ends were tables literally loaded with beef, lamb, hamus, gooseberry tarts, &e. At the extreme end of the table were placed two sheep roasted whole at Exford. S. T. Staughton, Esq., presi...

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1867.

We will not now cite examples from other countries of the benefits to" be derived firom co-oporative societies, but desire to .refer to the mode in which the plrincille has been most successfully worked in this colony, viz., by means of Building Societies. Co-operative stores have not met with the success attending similar veltures in large manuficturinp' towns in Great Britain, whero the wnnts, o' the population were of a more uniform character than are those of Victorians, and where provisions are dearer than in this favoured land. We should state, neverthe less, that one or two co-operative associations having their head-quarters near Melbourne have been very successftilly conducted and the Lan lands Foundry Compan...
