HoubwAvY's PnLs.x. - When inclement weather checks to a considerable extent the natural exhalations of the skin, an alterative is required to expel them entirely from the body through some. other. channel.

AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 May 1876

AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS. The inventive faculty must be good out West. The following slatement appeared in a recent number of theeewc York Evening Sun:--"The daughter of one of the most celebrated physicians of Quebec has fled with an Irish nobleman, the Earl of Dunraven,0 and sought concealment in this eity.?P.A? though the facts of this startling elopmneoht have been known in the leading social ciicles of Canada for somne days, yet, owing to the high position of the parties, they have.thus far been suppressed. The young lady is Miss Riowsand, daughter of Dr. Rowand, of Qucbec, one of the best known physicians in the Domninion, and a gentleman holding tIhe highest social position. She is said to pos- I nes the most attractive qualities.' The courtship is presumed to have beeln a brief one, as it was only a few weeks ago that the Earl arrived in Canada from Englanld; yet it is said by some that the bliss extended throughout the weary days of last winter, as his lordship spent several mon...

LECTURE ON AGRICULTUJRff On Wednesday MIr. MI'Ivor, agricultural chemist, delivered a lecture at Ballarat on the nature of vegetable food, the nutrition of plants, the general nature of soils, the che mical principles involved in exhaustationt of land, the means of preventing exhaustation, and finally the necessity for adopting a sys tom of rotation of crops. After dwelling at considerable length on the supplies of carbon, &c., obtained by plants from the atmosphere he is reported by the local papers to have read as follows:--"After this explanation of the nutrition of plants and the general nature of soils, let us pass to tihe discussion of the principles of tihe exhaustation of land.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 May 1876

AGdRICULTURAL NO1TWS. The long-coptinucd drought, which had begun to assume a most serious aspect to the large population settled on the Wiimmera and other new districts north of the dividing range, broke up lasi t Tuesday evening, the welcome rain faling steadily during the night and the followhilg dlay. This will prove an inestimable boon, as many stockowlners were reeduced to drivi~g upwards of eight miles for water. Tillage operations also, which in nasny instances were chlekeied for want of rain, are now actively re-commenced. The season has been very favorable for ploughing and sowing iln-thle older localities, and agri cultural operations are well advanced. An increased area is this year bcihlg laid down to grass, and some of the older pastures are being broken srp for cereals, chiefly barley and oats.

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. TIIos. C. COATES.--Your letter is inad missible, especially as the law of libel is still in force. You will have sufficient work for your credulous nature if you believe all you "are told." Your commuunication is alto gether in bad taste, and your reflection upon the conductorof this journal isungentlemanly anjminean in thehighest degree.

We declmine to be the medium by which the public is to be informed of all that "you are told."

CORRESPONDENCE. A DODGE EXPOSED. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 May 1876

COORESPOfONDEiVCE. A DQDGE EXPOSED. (TO TIE CEDITORC T ?IHE IIERAL.) SIR,--In the Colac Times of the 13th instant, there appears a letter, signed "Catholic," which is evidently the produc tion of a wolf in sheep's clothing. This· ".. letter attempts to make capital, for your subsidised local contemporary's benefit, out of some remarks made by your contributor; "Smith," respecting the dismissal of a ybuth Sfrom a manufactory in this district. Though this is a very good try-on, yet it aill be found a failure, for "Catholic" is, I believe, no Catholic at all. If he is such, I challenge him to publish his real name, so that we can judge of his sincerity. If he refuses to do this, it will hie evident that the production is an emanation from one of the little clique, the head centre of which is to be found in close proximity to the National Bank. The facts of the case in question were stated by " Smithl" in The Herald of the 9th instant, and have not since been contradicted. Not only thli...

REV. C. CLARK'S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 May 1876

RE T. C CLARX'S LECTURE. The lecture delivered by the Rev. Charls Clark on " Oliver Cromwell" at the Odd. fellows' Hall, Colac, on Monday eveninglast, was attended by a very numerous assem blage, who greatlyenjoyedthe latestmasterly efibrt of bIMr. Clark's genius. The lecture commenced with a brief dissertation and exordium upon freedom, and of the necessity for the action which took place in England during Cromwell's time. The personal ap.. pearance and character of King Charles I. wvere sketched in a wonderfully clear and descriptive manner, though the'lecturer was rather severe upon the unfortunate king. The description of the King's prime favorite, the licentious Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, was a masterpiece, and showed to what excesses nobles of that period were given. The personal appearance of Crom well, as sketched by Sir Phillip Warwick, when the former first appeared in the House of Commons, was also given. The character of Cromwell duing his youthful days was pourtrayed...

A GRIEVANCE. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 May 1876

A GRIEVANCE. '(TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) Sin,-Colac is unfortunately now cursed with a hewspaper similar to the one estab lished in Camperdown some eighteen months since, and this Colae subsidised affair must needs endeavor to blacken the public charac ter of the people of this district upon every opportunity. In its last issue it states "the infinitesimal knot of malcontents" will be allowed the opportunity of hearing an account of our member's stewardship, and in the same paragraph it also states, "we are not sure whether the meeting will allow him to speak when he comes." If there is only an "infinitesimal knot of mal contents," surely they will easily be kept in order. This style of thing is getting beyond. bearing, and I hope that some intelligent elector will allude to it at the meeting on Thursday next. Mr. E. Cooper some time ago pointed out the falsehoods which ap peared in the Colac Times respecting the manner'in which public meetings are held in Colac. A good ducking ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 May 1876

THE cardinal role of the Conservative party still is, as it has long been, to stem the flood of democracy. The first and broadest of all Liberal principles is a loyal recognition of Progress as the aim, or raison d'etré, of all human in stitutions-civil or religious. There are manifest indications of a great and mo- mentous struggle being imminent be- tween the Conservative and Liberal parties in Victoria. We adhere to these old party designations as the best. Conservatives here disown their appel- lation, and adopt the designation of their antagonists as an alias, under which they manoeuvre to palm off upon the country a spurious imitation of a Liberal policy. They may style them selves "Liberals," "Liberal Conserva- tives," or" Constitutionalists," but they are still Conservatives all over, and nothing else. The struggle now im- pending will render this apparent, and tend to a more marked definition of parties, so that this party with the three names, or aliases, will become as di...

NO1TES AND ZEs.NS. -4------ Mr. J. H.

Mr. Conner has been a long time making up his mind on this point, but it is satisfactory to note the conclusion he has arrived at. The large number of electors in and about Colac, who are dissatisfied with Mr. Connor's recent proceedings inPariiament, will havean oppor tunity ofhearing his explanation onThursday next. As Colac has always been noted for fair play in matters of this kind, notwith standing the contemptible insinuations and "venomous paragraphs" which have appeared from time to time in the columns of our subsidised local contemporary, Mr. Conner may rest assured that hlie will obtain a fair hearing on the night ...
