Sil8Ite "free linsr PUBLISHED THUnSDAY rMORNING. THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1871. TIE general elections are now over, and whether Kilmore has reason to feel proud or otherwise of its choice of a representative it has at all events returned the old member by a majority of 32 over his opponent, or about a vote for every year Mr. BOUntKE has been in the colony. Whilst we are certainly of opinion that a better selection may be made, we do not wish to cavil at the decision arrived at, but we cannot help expressing our surprise at a large number of electors voting for a man who has no other special qualifi. cation for fulfilling the position ofa legislator than that of being an old resident. Mr. FTNN may, although defeated, be congratulated upon the position he attained on the poll, and we are convinced that had his canvass been pushed more closely, and the work left principally id other hands than those who busied themselves, the result would have been different. The rumours which Mr. Bouaxs an...

A SOLDIER'S RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 March 1871
A SOLDIR'1 S BELIGUION. Attention is now directed in an unusual degree to the subject of military religion ; therefore the following remarks of Prince Eugene, written shortly before his death, may be of some use to the young inquirer: "I have been happy (says Prince Eugene) in this life, and I wish to be so in the other, There are old dragoons who will pray to Heaven for me, and I have more faith in their prayers than in those of all the old woman of the Court and of the city elergy. The fine music, whether simple or more obstreperous, of the divine service, delights me. The one has something religious, which awes the soul; the other reminds me of the flourish of trumpets and kettle drums, which so often led my soldiers to victorj, of the God of Hosts who ha4 blessed our arms. I ave :earcely had tine to sin; but I have set a bad example, perhaps, without knowing it, by my negligence of the forms of religion, in which I have, however, invariably believed. I have sometimes spoken evil...
AMERICAN FEELING TOWARDS ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 March 1871
AMERICAN FEELING TOWIARDS ENGLAND. There is a habit springing up in the English press of treatine American questions, which seems to us (Economist) full of danger for the future of both countries. It is a habit of writing as if America were, in fact, the great permanent enemy of England, the one nation with whom war is always probable, and will one day become necessary. Even the Pall Mall Gazette, in more than one recent article, such as one entitled "American Friendliness." the real object of which was American Unfriendliness, is contributing what it can to produce this condition of mind. ",The first step," it writes, " towards a healthier condition of affairs is to convince ourselves of the rooted unfriendliness of the American people towards this country, so far as they are represented by their national organs," We should have supposed that that was the first step not towards a healthier condition of things, but towards a very much unhealthier-indeed, a very admirable preparation...

KILMOIRE ST. PATRICK'S SOCIETY'S ANNUAL SPORTS; On Friday last (St. Patrick's Day) the annual athletic sports of the Kilmore St. Patrick's Society were held on the cricket ground; where upwards of two thousand people must have put in an appearance. At twelve o'clock the Kilmore Band (numbering about a dozen instruments), met opposite the temporary office of the Society in Sydney street, where it was joined by about forty members of the St. Patrick's Society, dressed in their new regalia of green silk with a harp of gold on the breast, and gold trimmings. The procession, merhballed by Mr Fitzpptrick, proceeded along Sydney street as far as Powlett-street (the Band playing St. Patrick's Day), where a halt was made, and they retraced their steps as far as Union-street, and thence to the ground, the Band playing lively Irish airs most of the time. Arriving on the ground three hearty cheers were given, and the Stewards proceeded to carry out the- programme of the day's sports. The follow...
KILMORE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 March 1871
KILMORE ELECTION. On Thursday,, 16th, the last batch of elec tions for the Legislative Assembly of Victoria took place, and on that day it fell to the lot of Kilmore to choose one to represent, them in the Parliament of the colony. Three gentlemen had been nominated but, two clear days prior to the election, 1r Meade thought it best to secure his £50 by taking it oit of the hands of the returning officer, and thereby preventing its running the risk of going into the consolidated revenue, and the choice then necessarily became limited to two, viz., Mir Laurence Bourke, the old member, and Mr John Fynn. The polling was taken at the Mechanics' Institute, Mr Akehurst, P.M, acting as returning officer, and three.fourths of the entire number who recorded votes did so between nine a,m, and noon, after which the free and independent electors came up slowly. Both candidates and their respective prominent supporters were in the neighbourhood of the booth during the day, and the usual stratage...

Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 23 March 1871
To-day (Thursday) the ceremonies in connection with transferring the remains of the late Rev. Timothy O'Rourke from the Kilmore Cemetery to St. Patrick's Church takes place. Admission to the church w\ill be by tickets, which are procurable at the principal business places in the town. The ceremonies commence at 10 o'clock, but the church doors will be open half an hour prior to that time. Those who point at Kilmore as being a rowdy place should have been at the election here on Thursday last, when their minds would be disabused of any of those very erroneous impressions formed. XrWe feel sure those who reside at a distance, and heard of our elections some years ago, would not, if they came amongst us, have believed that the crowd outside the Mechanics' Institute on Thursday last meant an election contest -indeed appearances would seem rather to indicate that a funeral procession was about being formed. Those disposed to " tread on tails of coats" must think these days degene rate on...
