BALLAN SHIRE-ENGINEER, To the Editor of the Express, SIn,--I refrained from replying in your last issuet, for the last time, to the deliverances of " Honesty," and those of other anonymous scriblers-if they really do possess separate individualitios-who sail in the same boat with him, in order that I might gain time to inquire into the truth or otherwise of "honesty's" ]atost discovery anont the works carried out at .Morrison's during tho past year. The small clique, Mr. Editor, on whose bohalf "Honesty" and his coadjutors, either real. or imaginary, exorcise their shortsighted ingenuity, is, as I have before demonstrated in a public journal in this district, an excessively stupid one;: they make assertions which, because untrue, they ought to know can only have the effect of recoiling on themselves.

To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 14 December 1867

To the Edior of lthe .e,'ress, SIn,- Being one of the unfortunato defaulting ratepayers, I, with somo others, was summoned to Court last Mondny; many of us having pro. viously attended the Road Board officeo, and woro unable to find any one to receive payment of our rates. I must confess my surprise, after leaving Court, to find that other defaulters had not been summoned (we having had to pay 15s. costs upon ours). I should think this conduct on the part of the Board demands an explenation, and savours strongly of favouritism. I should certainly wish to be informed whether the Board anuthoriecs their Clerk to summon only a certain portion of their defaulters; and also if it is customary for a J.P. to adjudicate upon a case of non-paymont of rates, being himself a non-summoned defaultor. By inserting the abovo you will obligo, yours, &o . 1TuiosrAs CARLTON, lalehms Marsh. 12th Donomhar. 1 h17.

Now, alas, "none so poor as do them reverence." What lias come over our civic autl:orities ?

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 14 December 1867

BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRRESPONDENT.) ON Tuesday night, about half-past eleven o'elock, the inhabitants of Red Hill, Blackwood, were greatly alarmed by a fire which broken out at the Victoria Hotel, kept by Mrs. Cruise, It was a large two-storied wooden builing, erected about twelve years ago. It will be recollected that Mrs. Cruise had the misfortune to lose her husband about seven months ago, and a few friends requested her to have a quadrille party on Tuesday, last, being the first since her husband's death, Everything had gone on quietly and comfortably, and all were enjoying their dance, when suddenly the alarm of fire was given, and a rush took place. To save the children was the first thing, which was happily effected, no loss of life having occurred. The fire broke out in one of the bedrooms upstairs, and in a few minutes the whole building was one mass of flames. How it originated is not known, as no person had been seen to go upstairs. All persons vied with each other ...
