CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 21 December 1867

OHRISTMA8. We have been-so busy during the past month hr two preparing for the reception of the Duke, and f~fting him while with us, that the annual holiday of Christmas has come upon us with a suddenness almost startling. How true is -it, that time waits for no man. Notwithstanding the round of rejoicings we have not yet got quit of, we still retain suf ficient Ibse for old Father'Christmas to give him a hearty welcome, and though he comes to us in, the middle of summer instead of the depth of winter, he is none the less welcome. Where'er Englishmen are locat;ed whether ih the torrid or the frigid zone-' they alwaya continue, by hook or by crook, to make merry pt Christmas. And we Vic_ torians shall, ~asuredly do so at the Christ, mas of 1867. For have we not high reason, seeing that the Queen's second soh will be our guest-that his presence will lend an ad ditional lustre to a season which we have always, during'aur short history, made one of innocent enjoyment? We shall, by the w...

THE UNITED SPEECH DAY. Not the least gratifying bf the many grati fying incidents that have .barked the stay of the Duke of Edinburgh in! Victoria, was the united speech day of tlhe four collegiate schools in Melbourne. This was held in the new Exhibition Building Ist Saturday, which was crowded by the pupil, their friends, and the general public. It1 was exceedingly pleasant to the tolerant ii matters religious, to look on the unwonted sight which was there presented. The educational represen tatives of religious denotiinations between whom there had been far tpo little intercom munion, and whose theqlogical tenets are wide as the poles asunder, met in the presence of the Queen's son to forget their ecolesias tical differences, to show their loyalty to the Crown, and to do homage to the cause of education. It was delightful to see working cordially to .this end Dr. Bromby, of the Church of England Grampiar School; Rev. I. Moore, S.J., of St. Patrick's College; Rev. Alexander Morris...

A SHOPKEEPER'S COMPLAINT. To the Editor of te Telegraph. Sir,--Will you be kind enough to allow me as a shopkeeper to ask the "powers that be," through your columnns, whether there is soany law to prevent tradesmen of Prahran from exposing goods on the footpath before their shops; and, if there is such a law, why itis not enforced.? Some months ago all the shopkeepers were informedthat if they exposed goods on the footpath they would be summoned, and for some time they all refrained from doing so, with the exception of two or three, who still continued the practice, although not to so great anextent as before; and, as they were nover summoned, either there is no law to prevent it, and therefore the police had no right to threaten to summon us, or they acted very unfairly, in not summoning those who continued to break the law afiter they hnad beenn warned. Whether there is such a law or not, I believe there were never more goods blockiilg up the pavement in one por tionof.Chapel-stre...
