The Birregurra team was thle strongest tle club has sent out to do battle in its honor this season, and they had all they could do to win thle match. Owing to somne unfortunate mIismanagement on the Colae side, victory was snatchelld from tlheir grasp.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 9 May 1876

IT is a popular superstition amongst the inhabitants of Victoria that they aire a free people and live in a free comuntry, and are, moreover, a democratic people. The Government of Victoria bears about the same resemblance to the de mocracy of Athens as the late monarchy of IIso CAKOBUA did to the Gov.ern ment of England. We have adopted all the emblems of despotic government that have survived feudalism in Eng land, down to our judicial and muni cipal nomenclature-as "bailiwicks," "shires," &c.t-down to games and pageants calculated to sustain a reve rence for wealth and show. If freedom is to be gauged by the license to do wrong, and the difficulty of obtaining justice, then we are decidedly a free and easy people. One of thle most in famous semi-slave-dealing, kidnapping, and murdering expeditions recorded since the days of pirating, was fitted out in Victoria, and the delinquents Dr. MURRAY and his mates--got off smscathed.
