The South Bourke Standard. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5TH, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 5 December 1862

jcje ~outt ~iouttrcte . t4 tttara . FRIDAY, DECEMBER Sru, 1802. As the time is near at hand when it will be incumbent upon the Hlawthorn Council to strike a rate for the current your, a few re manrks upon their financial position may not be out of place. By the last financial re port it appears that there is now a balance against the Council of £9012. 15s.; and that the total amount of liabilities, including works in progress, salaries, &c, is £1078. Gs. 10d. To meet this deficiency there is a bal ance of £201 of the grant-in-aid of rates for the past year still due; and the toll fund, if the charge made upon it for widening the ap proach to the Hawthorn bridge is remitted, will be nearly £200 for the quarter ending September 30th; and probably a similar sum for the current quarter, ending on the 31st instant. These together: will make up a total of about £600, thus showing an ab solute deficiency of £478, to be met by tax ation, besides the wants of the Municipality to be p...

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 5 December 1862

NOTES AND NEWS. At the Bourkeo General Sessions, last Monday, James Sinipson was arraigned for having burglariously entered the house of James Ml'Evoy, Studley Park, on the 5th November last. The prisoner pleaded "Guilty," and was sentenced to twelve mouths' imprisonuent, with such harid labour as the prison authorities found him capable of performing, as lie had broken his leg while committing the offenco. A volunteer campaign during the Christ mas holidays appears to be more than likely. On Tuesday iMr. T. Chirnsidoe, of the WVerri bee, gave Colonel Anderson a guarantee for £700, which seum was to be spent duriing the Christmas week, in defraying the expenses of a volunteer encampment, to commence soon (ifter Christmas Day. Bearing in mind the wholesale abuise to which lie was subjected last summer because the last volunteer en campment took place on the TWerribee Plains, Mr. Chirnside has made it a condition that this next affair should not come off on his own property, but somew...

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 12 December 1862

NOTES AND NEWS. At the fortnightly meetin" of the Dande nong Police Court, on Saturlday last, a settle ment, for Ia tiame at least, was made of what is termeod in the district the Dandenong con spirncycase. A summons had been issued by a girl named Donovan, one of the former de fendants, against Mr. R. C. Walker, J.P., Mr. Dobson, C.P.S., and Mrs. Dunbar, the wife of a publican, the charge being that of conspiracy. On a plrevious occa.anion the case was postponed, in consequence of tie charge being entered on the sheetas" The Unknown v. Walker and others," instead of the plain. tiff's name being mentioned, as in the sum monses. When the case was called on, no person answered to the name of the " Un known," and thus there is a chance of this case, which has caused so much local ex citement, being closed, as far as criminal proceedings are concerned. There were several other cases adjudicated upon, and, as the Court only sits once a fortnight, instead of every week, as formerly, the b...
