THE LOVER'S TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 29 June 1867

'THE LOVER'S TRICKI Ox E fine winter evening, early in the present century, Colonel Smith, and hite maiden sisterPatty, were sitting on either side of .a° delightful fire, enjoying their ease without any. interruption for at least an -hour; I and that,' considering the sex-of Miss Patty, was certain!ly very remnarkable. The Colonel was sitting cross-leeged in a great arm-chair, with his spectacles on, and his pipe in one hand and a newspalier-in", the othler-fast asldeei. Miss Patty was nmoving herself gently forward 'and backwgrdjin a low rocking chair. .. Close by her feet was the cat, while Carlo was stretched out at full: length itn the rug in front of the fire, and, like his master, fast asleep. At length the Colonel roused from his nap, took off his spectacles, and rubbed his eyes; then, glancing at a very large pile of papers that lay on the table near him, said, I wish Henry was here, to help me about collecting my rents.' ' Well, I really wish he'was,' answered his sister. ...

DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 6 July 1867

DRAMIATIC PERFORMANCE. ? Tie dramatic art has of late been so per severingly and enthusiastically studied in Williamstown that we now have amongst us several really good amateur performers, who will, we venture to say, bear favourable comparison with an equal nimber from any other town in the colony. The result of this is that the residents of this locality have been favoured with a variety of excellent entertainments, while at the same time many charitable objects have received con siderble assistance. The readiness with which the amateurs have always given their services for the furtherance of a good cause, combined with the fact that in all their per formances they have displayed more than a moderate amount of ability, has rendered them exceedingly popular, and if they were to make it a point to appear before the pub ic more frequently than they do, we doubt not that they would be just as well patron ised. The Williamstown Amateur Drama tie Society's fourth entertainment, which t...

The Chronicle. JULY 6th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 6 July 1867

JULY I?e, 1SG7. IT is some time since we have called public .attention to the Williamstown Borough Granliar School; but although we have been silent upon the subject, it has not escaped our observation. We have watched with considerable interest the progress of the building from the time the foundation was laid up to its completion, which we are happy to say is now cflected, or, at any rate, that portion of the building which was considered sufficient for present requirements. And a very elegant and compact edifice it is--one, we have no hesitation in saying, which re flects credit upon those gentlenien who have interested themselves in its establishment. The cost of it, independent of the large piece of land on which it stands, will be in round numbers a thousand pounds, and in addition to its usefulness it is-quite an onminent to thldiot?n. Of course there is a debt of some niagnitide existing, which will rseuire more thali;n in ordin'ry efllort to wipe oft: But wie have i,,lmisii...
