SCOTLAND. -4- Toe annual Turn.over in the Glasgow Cattle Market is estinmatea at nearly £1,500,000 sterling. The Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch have, with their usual well timed liberality, caused to he distributed large sums of money, as well as quantities of coal, among the indigent and infirm in the town and district of Lan,iholm.

THE WAY OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

THE W&Y OF THE WORLD. Yes, he came in the summer time, When roses their bright chains strung; And love and nature were in their prime, And Jessie was fair and young. They wandered by wood and stream, They vowed to be fond and true; And made the most of their summer dream, As lovers are wont to do. He went; and the autumn winds stole The red from the roses' heart; With dead leaves covered the verdant knoll, And tore the lihes apart. She watched where her lover's barque Went out, with its sails unfurled ; And she sighed, "Ah, me! hut the sky is dark, And I am alone in the world ' For him i: was only a dream, With beauty and fragrance rife; But women-ab! vomen are apt to deem Such moments the best of life. And she from her heights of bliss, To sorrow and darkness hurleu, Must learn a lesson as sad as this 'Tis the way of a wicked world ! 'Tis the way of the world to alight The prize that is lightly won; 'Tis the way of the world to smile, or smite, When a ruthless deed is done....

Selected Poetry. FARMERS' DAUGHTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

FARMERS' DAUGHTERS. -4.--- Up in the morning early, Just at the peep of day, Straining the milk in the dairy, Turning the cows away Sweeping the floor in the kitchen, Making the beds up stairs, Washing the breakfast dishes, Dusting the parlour chairs. Brushing the crumbs from the pantry, Hunting for eggs at the barn, Cleaning the turnips for dinner, * Looking for stockings to darn Spreading the whitening linen Down on the bushes below, Ransacking every meadow Where the red strawberries grow. Starching the linen for Sunday, Churning the snowy cream, Rinsing the pails and strainer Down in the running stream. Feeding the geese and turkeys, Making the savoury pies, Jogging the little one's cradle, Driving away the flies. Grace in every motion, Music in every tone, Beauty of form and feature Thousands might covet to own. Cheeks that rival spring roses, Teeth the whitest of pearls; One of these country maids is worth A score of your city girls.

MRS PRODGERS IN THE DIVORCE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

M1RS 1RODGERS IN 71 E DIVORCE COURT. In the early part of lasot year Mrs Giacommetti, nee Prodgers, established under a recent act of Parliament that her children were legitimate, and she took these steps because, it was alleged, her husband had often said they were illegitimate, in consequence of his being a catholic and Fhe a Protestant. Miss Prodgers was the daughter of a clergyman in Hertfordshire, and Mr Giacommetti was an Austrian and at one time in the merchant service of that country. They met each other accidentally in London, and, after a very short courtship, they were married, the lady's brother officiating at the cere.' mony. Differences took place whilst on the marriage tour, and Mr Giaoommetti stated a short time since, when he sought for a restitution of conjugal rights, that she had re'used to live with him, and was now living in a separate residence as Balbam. His wi'e'e relatives believed that she was solely in the wrong, and had allowed Mr Gi commetti £200 a year...

[The Editor of the Free Press.] [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

[The Editor of the Free Preio.] DEAR SIr,-Duriug the recent cbntest here a report was industriously circula'ed to the effect that I had formerly entered the Police Force as a " Protestant" having changed my religion in order to he admitted. I treated the matter at the time as an elec, tioneering " ruse" that I could afford to let pass unnoticed, but from facts that have come to my knowledge I am now satisfied it did me serious injury, the report having been believed by many of the electors on account of its author being the Hon. Mr O'Shanassy. Since the election I thought fit to call upon Captain Standish, and ob tained from him the enclosed memo having reference to my connection with the Police Force. I leave your readers to say whether Mr O'Shan..ssy eras justified in having re course to such unworthy means to gain his object, I remain, dear sir, Yours truly, JOHN FYNN. Kilmore, 29th March 1871.

COLONIAL EXPERIENCE. KILMORE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

COLONIAL EXPERIENCE. -4--- BY AN OLD CHUM. KILMORE. People say there is nothing new under the sun I beg pardon for contradicting them, we have a New Township, it is the real town of Kilmore-the Government surveyed township. I am sorry to state that it is not of more importance, ocular demonstration in proof of my statement, for, look at the un occupied, waste, dreary patches of land, from the Post Office up to Wilson's Mill-on both sides of the road-with tumbling down houses to break the gap in the scenery. To, bring the mind to view these places adorned with comfortable cottages, and every one his' owmn landlord would be indeed a state of bliss. Kilmore, I fear is in want of a Benefit Building Society, to enable members to acquire freehold property. A, substantial brick building, commodious and complete, has the shutters up for months. It was once a school, alas ! I know a smart indivi dual in the Borough that could ,make a flourishing school of it again. Talk about education, and ...

LIGHTWOOD FLAT, BYLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

LIGHTWOOD FLAT, BiLA.NDS. The following, from a correspondent, who entrusted the communication for delivery to private hands, did not come to us until the end of the past week. Though rather late, we give it room in our columns : A public meeting of the inhabitants of Lightwood Flat was held on Saturday, the 18th inst. (Feb.,) at Mr Scott's temporary schoolhouse, for the purpose of taking initiatory steps towards the establishment of a common school in connection with the Board of Education. This place has recently attained a position of some importance in consequence of the greater portion of the land having been taken up under the 42nd clause, and the population having been considerably augmented by a number of labouring men employed on the railway. There was a fair attendance of parents and others interested. Mr Jeffreys, a teacher of considerable experience under the Board of Education, making a short stay in the neighbourhood, was unanimously voted to the chair. The chairman op...

Police Department, Chief Commissioner's Office, Melbourne, 20th March 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 March 1871

Police Department, Chief Commissioner's Office, Melbourne, 20Cth March 1871. MnEMo.--The books of this Office slow that Mr John Fynn joined the Mounted Police Force of Victoria on the 18th of August 1853, and was discharged at Long. wood on the 24th August 1854. That he was a clerk by profession, 23 years of age when he joined, five feet ten inches in height, and Irish by birth. No further particulars were at that time recorded of persons joining the Force, as to religion or otherwise. FREDERICK C. STANDISH, Chief Commissioner of Police. P.S.-I have to add that the word " dis chatged" in no way implies that Mr Pynn was discharged from the force for miscon. duct. There is no record in this office of his ever having misconducted himself while in the force, and I have reason to believe that Mr Fynn claimed his discharge at the end of twelve months service as he was then entitled to.

P~UILISIr.D THURSDAY NIORNING. THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 1S71. We publish in another column a letter from l Mr John Fynu, and the memo from o :ptain Standish most effectually contradicts the statement that Mr Fynn was ever guilty of the disreputable conduct of chenging his religion in order to be admitted to the police force, which statenment was most industri ously circulated to the injury of Mr Fynn's candidature at the late election. The name of the Hon Mr O'Shanas.y has been mixed up in this matter, indeed rumour has it that the report originated with him, but as we always believed that gentleman to be a man of honour, and one ready to make speedy reparation for any unintentional wrong or injury he might have inflicted we forbear making fuither comment for the present. On Thursday last the remains of the late Rev Timothy O'Rourke were interred in the vault of St Patrick's Church, Kilmore, having been removed from the cemetery on the evening previous.
