CORRESPONDENCE. [It is to be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.—EDITOR.] A LIBEL. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

[It is to be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourse'lves with the opinions of our correslpondents3.-EIrroI'.] A LIBEL. ('rT THE EDITOR OF 'THE IsER.LrL.) Sln,-I was rather amused at seeing in the columns of the last issue of your sub sidised local contemporary a letter signed "Look Out." It is not at all bad for the Colane 'imes to publish such a lihcllfus pro duetion, after the manner in which it attacked several respectable townsmen over tilhe election of the Library Conunittcc, and also oil mallly other ccasions. IThle Co!oc 'Times has been forced upon the people of this district, and liosinss men and others have been complllled to submit to ia tax inll the shape of adllditional advertising, which was not at all required.

THE DIVINING ROD. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

THE DIVIlINOG OD. - The matter of "dowsing" orsearching for water by the divining rod has, says the' WIragga A dveriser, been attracting attention in the neighborhood. An attempt was made to find water on JMr. Heath's property at Lake Albert by a previous owner, Mr. Walker, who sunk wells some 200 feet deep in different places without success. Other attempts were made in the same neighbor hood with a like want of success. Mr. Heath I was running short of water, and having a certain amount of faith with reference to the divining-rod method of. getting water, he applied to Mr. Vincent, who went ontto Mr. Heath's property. Mr. Vincent picked a thin twig from a tree which he called a "yellow jacket," and with this in hand' he walked over the goruid, pointing out, after some time, what he called the line of drift indicated, as he said, by the motions of the rod in his hand. He then pointed oiut a spot, not msnore than 150 yards from the site of the previous well experiments; and upon the...

SULLIVAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

,S'ULLIVA V. Now that the murderer Sullivan occupies a prominent place in the public mind, it is worth while reviving a story that has pre viously been narrated, and which has all the elements of probability within it. Dr. King, J.P., informs us that about fifteen years ago his brother, residing at Korong, in the vicinity of Sullivan's shanty, was lirmly im pressed with the belief that Sullivan was then engaged ifi the fiendishs work of murder. This was previous to the revelations regard ing the diabolical work at Moungatapu. Sullivan owned a grog shop at Korong, into which several men, with money, were in duced to cuter, who have never since been heard of. The supposition then was that the men received poison in their grog. The hypothesis, or, as the gentlemen nmmed regard it, certainty as'to the disposal of the bodies is, that they: were buried in the garden. Sullivan, it is said, was in the habit of trenching his land to the extra ordinary depth of four feet; and this busi ness h...

WASTEFUL EXTRAVAGANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

WAS'TEFUL EXTRA A CANCR. The Argus asks :-"Who is responsible for the alterations which have just been commenced in the carriage-drive in the domain, immediately in front of the grand entrance to the new Government House? The public will be astonished to hear that thenew drive which was laid out at such great expence three or four years ago is being cut up, with a view, apparently, to entire obliteration; that the newly planted trees and shrubs are being removed, and that a new entrance is being cut into the St. Kilda road, opposite the Barracks. A grosser piece of wasteful extravagance, combined with ruthless vandalism, it has seldom been our lot to witness, even in this country of government by muddle and mess. We call Sir James M'Culloch's particular attention to the fact that within the last few years several thousands of pounds of public money have been lavished on this domain, the greater portion of which was actually ex pended on the construction of this carriage drive.

[ADVERTISEMENT.] THE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

[ADVERTISEMENT.. rp11HE AT'IO AL REFORM 1 LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. BIANIFESTO. It is a fundamental principle of the Engliah Constitution that representation shoaul go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. 'he people of this country live under a constitution which, awhile leaving them comparatively free to elect their twn representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Assembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constanttly obstructed by the Legislative Council. which reuresents only a portion of the community, thet portion being thh propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, blecome a nullity, and self-govern ment a sham. In every civilized country in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State. In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenne grants large annual subsides in aid of loc...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

TILE political machinery which causes Governments to revolve inl regular order is apt occasionally to become dis organised, and thereby cause injustice to one particular class, while another class receives a corresponding benefit. A striking instance of this occurred during the late session of the Victorian Parliament, when the land-tax brought forward by Mr. BEIuYv was thrown out, and the time therefore delayed at which the large landed-proprietors will be compelled to contribute in an equal ratio with the other classes in the com munity towards the revenue of the colony. The AF'OuLLocI tactics, which were afterwards brought into operation, enabled the injustice of the Iron Hand business to be successfully accom plished. Various other evils, which we need not enumerate, also resulted' from the manner in whlich the business of the country was conducted, and the complaints of the people, in consequence, throughout the length and breadth of Victoria were both loud and deep. The action...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 May 1876

I OTzA;S A VD ZFJ'J)d.E'S. The Corangamite School Board of Advice held an investigation at the State School; on VWednesday last, into the charge brought by MIr. Donald Dunoon against Mr. Dredge, head-teacher of the Colac State School, for excessively flogging his son Andrew, a boy about ten years of age. Messrs. J. G. Jen nings, B. N. Butcher, and S. Vaughan were the members of the Board present. The evidence given clearly proved the case, and the Board found that the boy had been ex cessively punished, but that the punishment had been caused by his obstinacy, and they also expressed a voery strong opinion as to the unsuitableness of the weapon used by Mr. Dredge to punish the .lad. The report of the Board of Advice will be forwarded to the Education Department in due course. The weapon which woo used to thrash the boy was produced by Mr. Dredge, at the request of the Board. It is a stiff malacca riding cane, about an inch in diameter, and a most improper instrument for thrashing ch...

BI.RREGUIREA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRIESPOxDENT'.) Wednesday, 10th IMay. A few of the Birregurra elite held a meet ing at Mr. P. E. Cahill's Native Youth Hotel on Saturday evening, May 6th, for the purpose of trying to "raise the wind" for the Geelong Hospital. It appears that a great many of the Birregurra people have received benefits from the institution of late, consequently they ,think it their bomlden duty to try and strengthen the funds of tihe Iospital. They have, therefore, decided to hold a monster ball on Friday, June 9th. We have had a very long drought, but the scene has changed, and the watery element is now pouring down, to-the satisfaction of a great many whose waterholes and tanks have been dry for some considerable time past. If anyone regrets the present downpour it will hbe the railway contractor, Whose works will be stopped, probably for some time.
