No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 19 May 1876

Ix common wial many other Liberal journals in Victoria, we freely expressed the opinion that the action of SIR WILLIAM STAWELL, while Acting Governor during the political crisis when Mr. Berry was refused a dissolution of Parliament, was arbi trmryand unconstitntional. That this opinion was not conflsed to the Vic torian journals is clearly apparent by an article which appeared in the London Times, of the 22ne1d March. The Collins seteet press talces advantage of every opportunity of re-pnldishing any thing umfavorable to the Liberal cause. and we imagine that the article alluded to will isot be received with such "csat favor as mnre y others have been. No doubt the masjomty of persons in this colony consider, as of little ilnportance, susytlhing which appears ia tie English press relatisng to Victorias politics, but tisere are otlers who hold a contrary opinion, even in ouir own district, and it may not be oat of ilice tlmt tley should be inforumd of the opinions of t|he "Thunderer...

THE BURRUMBEET OUTRAGE. ARREST AND IDENTIFICATION OF TIHE VIOLATOR OF MRS. REICE. After all the mystery and delay that has attended the fearful outrage committed upon Mrs. Reice, at Burrumbeet, on the 4th April last, it is satisfactory to know that the ruffian who perpetrated the hellish deed has at last fallen into the clutches of the police, and been fully identified by -his victim. A week ago Detective Mahony was passing through Elizab~ibestreet, When he saw a man with a swag and a billy sitting upon a door step, near some other loafers whom he had told to move on. Having read the amended description of the Burrumbeet offender in the Police Gazette, he was struck with the man's resemblance to it, and asked him what his occupation was. He said he was a farm laborer, had been following a threshing machine, and admitted that he was recently on Russell's farm, atBurrumbeet. On learn. ing this the' detective arrested him as a vagrant, and got him remanded to gaol till he could procure...

CORRESPONDENCE. [It is to be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.-EDrroR.] A VWEERING ELECTOR SPEAKS. (TO THE EDITOR OF TUIE HERALD.) Str,--Mr. Connor, being astonished at the patient, attentive, and orderly manner of the electors (" who at his meeting listened to a recital of the voluniinous correspondence and his rigmarole statements regarding his doings in Parliament, with the view to see if he could at all justify his conduct"), has taken advantage of their forhearance to say that this was an indication of the electors' approval of .his actions. To prevent the electors in the outlying parts of the district from being misled, would it not be advisable to call a public meeting to request Mr. Connor-to resign his seat in Parliament, to show that there can be no possible mistake as to the opinion of the majority of his con stituonts in Colac.

Wheat-Greatest yield, 14 bushels; smallest, 5 bushels; average, about 9 per bushels per acre ; considerably under last year's average ; area, about 20 per cent. less; quality, in. ferior.

Barley-None grown-Oaten Hay-About sufficient made to supply local demand; quality fair. Wheaten Hay-But little made,' and that for home use, where the wheat crop proved a failure.
