BALLAN SHIRE ENGINEER. '/o the Editor of the Ea'~sproe, Sr--I thought my last letter referring to this said Engineeoor would really have been the last; but I must again occupy a small epace in your columns, although it must be patont to every one that Mr. Kelly has swallowed the leeook, roots and all. Still he blunders forth his low abuse; and until he puts on his Sunday suit, and comes out oloean shaved, he must take the consequences. I will content myself for the present by pointing out one hole in his coat, 'Pho works laid out by M[r. Kelly at Morrison's, and oxecuted by Macphorson and Farr, have boon almost univorsally condomned, not only by the good folks of Mlorrison's, but by most traveller's having occasion to pass that way, as being a gross wasto of the rat.opayers' money; and further, is MIr.

BATURDAY, NOVEJMBJER 30, 1867. Tmi arrival of Hi-s Royal ]-Highness the DUKE or EDinDUOnII in Victoria is an event deserving of all possible honour from every section of the.colonists. Therefore it is that we have taken pains to make this issue of our journal a lasting memorial of the occasion, and the demnonstration we thus make on behalf of our readers is the more appropriate, inasmuch as the township with which the Erj'e,* is more immediately connected has stood alone in not showing any indications that its residents were aware or pleased that a member of the Royal Family was doiiiciled in Victoria. Some objection has been taken by cynical people to the "swarmery"- as CAntrTIE would call it-shown in the reception of PRrsoNE ALFRED; as though, they sany, it was the Qusas herself who had paid us a visit. To this we may reply that as Huin M?a?TrrT is not at all likely to tax our loyalty to make a grander exhibition of itself tlhan it has to her Royal son, all Victorians may rest ass...

BALLARAT MINING BOARD. To the Editor of the Express. SIR,–In your issue of the 2nd inst. there appeared a letter from Mr..Croker, in reply to a previous communication of mine, in which that gentleman, not being able to refute my statements, tries to vindicate himself by a tirade of abuse and invec- tive–strongly reminding me of the fable of the donkey and the lion's skin. Now, with your per- mission, Mr. Editor, I will show you and the public that I have advanced nothing but the truth, and Mr. Croker's letter will greatly assist me in substantiating it. With reference to the motion, revision of registrar's fees, Mr. Croker asserts that he exercised a wise discretion in with- drawing it. The quotation from my former letter will explain the state of the case. The mover simply moved the proposition, and Mr. M'Donell, after a while, seconded it, for the purpose of dis- cussion. Messrs. Downs and Nettel held that something ought to be said, by way of reason for a change. Mr. Croker repli...

The hutkeeper (Benjamin Parr Caldecott, commonly called Little Ben, at present keeping that snug and cleanly-kept road side house situated between Mount Egerton and Buninyong Station, and known to all residents in the district as the Mushroom ale and porter store) received them kindly; and after the usual good meal had been eaten, one of the party asked if there had been any gold found in the neighbour hood. The hutkeeper said he had some specimens that had come off a hill close by, and with what he believed to be gold in them. 'He brought them out, and his visitors inspected them, and asked him to show them the spot in the morning. Little Ben willingly consented; they visited the reef...

Ten thousand choristers united stand A compact, loyal, and devoted band; With beating hearts of innocence and truth, To greet and hail the Royal railor youth, They raise their voices, tremulous and slow, And breasts heave high with patriotic glow, As Britain's song, our nation's noblest lay, Peals far and near on that auspicious day. The surging crowd is mute, no sound breaks in To mar the beauty of that glorious hymn A people's orisons, spontaneous, free, For Her whose sway extends from sea tosoes. Befitting prayer for one whose rule benign Reflects her virtues rare from clime to clime; ': b Whose blameless life commands respect from allU. In lowly cot as in baronial hall. From guileless bosoms rose that peerless ohant, i And loving hearts do warmly hope and pant. That choicest ...

CURIOSITIES OF AMERICAN METAPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 7 December 1867
CURIOSITIES OF AME RICAN ME TAPHIOR.- One gushing sentence from a novel called " Heart or Head," published not long ago: " And she, leaning on his strong mini , and giving up her whole soul to him, was so happy in this spoiling of herself, so glad to e thuo s robbed, offerin?, him the rich milk of love in n full udder ot trust, and lowning for him to come and take it !" Some time ago a Chicago critic was very much affected by the play of "Arrah na Pogue." "There are passages in it," he writes, " which thunder at the heart like the booming of the Atlantic tide, and drown it in floods of bitter tears." The play mentioned by the Chicano critic could hardly have been as aflecting as the oratory of a preacher who is described by an admiring editor. "I have," he says, " repea tedly heard the moat famous man in America, but there are times when the flame of his pathos licks the everlasting hills with a roar that moves your 'soul to depths fathomed by few other men." Evidently this pranchle...
