NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

NOTES AND EVEINTS.. It will be seen by a notice in our adver tising columns that a public meeting will be held at the Oddfellows' Hall, on Saturday evening, the 27th instant, "for the purpose of placing on a legitimate basis the opinions of tile electors of this district with respect to Mr. J. H. Connor's explanation of his political conduct." Though there is no doubt in the minds of most people that the late meeting did not consider Mr. Connor's ex planation satisfactory, yet it is .desired to place the-matter beyond cavil, so that those who choose to indulge in splitting straws over it, will have even this poor consolation denied them. It is to be hoped that the electors will once more attend in strong force, and again record their protest against political treachery. Our Birregurra correspondent writes: "The Birregurra electors are anxious that our representative in the Legislate Assembly, Mr. J. H. Connor, should hold a meeting here to explain his political conduct during the la...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) fMORTLAKE, Monday, 8 p.m. A farmer in this district, named Niel Clark was brought up on remand to day, at the Mortlake Police Court, charged with stealing sheep belonging to Mr. T. F. Cummning. Mr. Higgins defended Clark. The shepherd, over seer, and Mr. Cumming proved that the stolen sheep were all six-tooth Merino ewes, in lamb to Merino rams, and were shorn on the 8th November at Stdny Point; Sold a inob of crawlers, shorn on- the 12th and 13th Novem ber last, full and broken mouthed, not in lamb, to Clark on the 17th Novem ber at Hyland's sale. Mr. Hyland corroborated the evidence about the sale, and said that- Clarke afterwards objected to take these sheep, because they were full and broken mouthed. This is a summary of the evidence given. The sheep had been sold by Clark to one Barber, and again to Mr. Bryden. The case lasted five hours. The defence was reserved. Clark was committed to take his trial at the neit General Sessions...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

THE meeting which took place at the Oddfellows' Hall, Colac, on Thursday evening last, for the purpose of hearing from Mr. JOSEPH HENRY CONNOR an explanation of his political conduct, was in many respects a remarkable one, and it is absolutely necessary that the proceedings and result should be commented upon in a fair and impartial manner through our columns, so that numbers of electors- throughout the district who were not present, at the meeting should be placed in full pos session of the true facts of. the case. A garbled and unfair report of the meet newspaper, and thbough these prosti tuted jouirnals have only a .asmall cir culation in -the districf, still it is necessary in the interests.of truth and fair play that these misrepresentations should not be allowed to pass unchal lenged. A rumor having industriously beert circulated that Mr. CONNOR would not be allowed a fair hearing, every effort Was made by the Colac Liberals to obtain a hearing for him, and the result proved t...

The Agnes is engaged in repairing the Madras'cable; which is broken near Nicobar Islands. The latest Perak initelligence states that Rajah Yusg heir to the throne, has been committing cruelties, and in flicting brutal punishment for imaginary offences., His acknowledged brutality caused the Malay chiefs to cut him off from the successibn. The country is, however, quiet, some rebels notably Kota Lama, chiefs and followers show ing symptoms of submission. Mr. Davidson, resident at Sangalore, and Mr Paul, deputy-resident, have been appointed as commissioners at Perak, but the former is sick at Malacca, and will probably be invalided.

ROYALTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

ROYALTY. The rumour that Her Majesty meditates abdication in favour of the Prince of Wales, we are thankful to say, is a pure invention, and the departure of the Queen on the eve of London season is merely a coincidence which can afford no ground for surprise.: We say without reserve that anything like abdication on the part of Her Majesty would be a grave and irreparable dereliction of royal duty, and would constitute a disasternot less deplorable for the morality of society in England than the Second Empire was for the morality of of society in France. It is true that the Queen does not fill the place which she ought to fill in the public eye, that she does not throw the wholesome influence of her pre sence over the'Court, and that she does not by the fact of this influence regulate and check the eccentric impulses of modern society. Butthemere circumstancethatthe Queen is the head of the realm, and that we have among us somewhere, even though in the invisible background, the repr...

OUR DETECTIVE AND POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

OUR DE'ECTIVE AND POLICE FORCE. The following extraordinary letter re specting the above matter, sigsed by Mr. Otto Berliner, appeared in Frday's gge; Permit me to draw your attention to your issue of the 4th September, 1874, wherein I pointed out to you the fact that our detective and police force were mismanaged for years past. Both forces have lost their renown, The teasons are simple, although difficult to be understood by those who do not possess professional knowledge of the duties con nected with the management of either de partment. During the period Mr. Nicholson was superintendent of detectives, and during the service of ex-Detective Christie, the public were treated from time to time to sensational cases of crime, cases from which it appeared that the detectives employed therein were like so many Fakirs of Oolu, but almost immediately after such wonderful performances, when a simple robbery was committed, and could not, be detected, the people were astonished to notice ho...

MR. J. H. CONNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

JIl. J. II. CONNOR. The following article appeared in Satur day's Gcelon. q ilvertlier, and there are few persons in this district who will dissent from the opinions expressed in it : Colac has afforded another proof of the bent of the public. mind with regard to the" political crisis, which is no less a political crisis because Parliament is not sitting, and the walls of the' Assembly do nrot resound to the contentions of political parties. It was the hope of those who have so long suc ceeded in monopolising power to the ex clusion of the Liberal party that the recess would not exactly bring about a reaction in their favor, but restore the public apathy, which they so well turned to account. The. political incidents which have occurred since Parliament was prorogued must have dis illusionised them, the public are not so un stable as they always assert, and on this occasion so devoutly hoped. Had the Oppo sition not made so firm a stand, and with the fullest confidence appealed to p...

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

COEMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. There was little of a novel or interesting character to.notice in the aspect of the mar kets to-day, and few transactions of import ance iere entered into. Breadstiffs are quiet, but prices are maintained by the stiff ness of holders. Bakers generally have not yet st?fi etieiit''f&Tued'their stocks of flour' to compel them to enter the market, and the demand from the few who.have not laid in supplies is too light to impart animation to the trade. The stillness prevailing is also in sone measure "owing to the fact that millers have no inducement to push sales of flour at present rates, which bear no proper relation to the cost of manufacture. Wheat is quoted at 5s 10d to hes -ld,' bags, included, for good to prime milling samples; at the former figure-? line of 500 Lags -changed hands. Country flour is selling at £12 to £12 5s, according to brand ; city made is disposed of at £12 5s to £12 l10s. In feeding grains, maize...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 May 1876

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. Ploughing and sowing are now in full swing, and the lambing season in the earlier districts is fully on; so far graziers are satis fied. The late rains have caused young grass to spring, which will be suitable for the lambs, though the cold nights are against them. Feed is yet sbarce in the agricultural distrits, owing to the" pastures having been overstodked. The disease among sheep in the Western district continues to spread, but neither the name of the disease nor any remedy for it have yet been discovered. The agricultural statistics of South Aus tralia show the average yield of wheat to be 12 bushels per acre, the highest average since the great harvest of 1866-7. Last year the average was 11l bushels per acre. An increase has also taken place in the area of land under wheat, the number of acres reaped being 898,820, and addition of 59,182 to that of last year. The total-produce of the year amounts to 10,739,834 bushels, being 876 141 bushels more than last ...

A DISAGREEABLE PREDICAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 26 May 1876

A DISAGREEABLE .BEIDA. ICA Last evening, after waiting until eleven o'clock for Mr. Parker to comne home, I went to bed. I bad hardly composed myself for slumber, when I thought 1 heard the door bell ring; and supposing Bob had forgotten his latch-key, I descended for the purpose of letting him in. When I opened the door, no one was upon the porch ; and although I was dressed simply in a night shirt, I stepped just beyond the doorway for the purpose of ascertinhing if 1 could see anyone who might have pulled the bell. Just as I did so the wind hanged the door shut, and as it closed it caught a portion of my raiment which was fluttering about, and held fast. 1 was some what amused at first, and I laughed as I tried to pull the muslin from the door.; but after making very violent exertions for that purpose, I discovered that the material would not slip through. The garment was held so firemly that it could not possibly be removed. Then I determined to reach over to the other side of t...

A GAGGER IN TROUBLE. (BENDIGO INDEPENDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 26 May 1876

A GAGGER IN T.LUULE. -0--- (BENDIGO INDEPENDENT..) Another "gagger" has come to grief. Mr. J. H. Connor, the honorable member for Polwarth, has been brought face to face with his constituents, and his parliamentary action has received, as it merited, unqualified con demnation. Mr. Connor is one of those men who foisted himself upon the democratic party by the most lavish promises of liber ality. During the recent struggle in the Assembly, he basely betrayed the trust re posed in him by the too confiding electors. The time of retribution has, however, come round, and the censure of last week may well be taken as a promise of what lie may expect in the future. Apart from Mr. Con nor's special delinquencies, there were two matters connected with his recent appear ance at Colac deserving of particular atten tion. Mr. Connor adopted the insolent tone of Sir James MI'Culloch when lihe commenced his explanations, and whined like his patron when he perceived that defeat was inevitable. The ...

GAMBLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 26 May 1876

CAMI.BLINIV. The following very sensible letter, showing the injustice of suppressing Chinese lotteries while so many palpable swindles are allowed to be carried on among Europeans, appears in the Argus under the signature of "Somer setshire" :--"Sir,--I wrish to make a few observations upon Chinese gambling. Ihave been but a few months in the country, and the goater portion of my time I have spent in Melbourne. Unlike some new chums, I do not look with disdain upon colonial insti tutions, and pooh-pooh everything because it is not English, consequently I have been a tolerably close observer of the manners and customs of the Victorians, by no means ig noring the Mongolian portion of them. In fact, I made quite a study of the Chinese portion of Little Bourke-street. I read with considerable interest a very happily-written paper in your journal descriptive of the Chinese lottery-shops.

Mr. Croxton, when leaving the gaol, seemed very much affected at the pro bability of a fellow-creature being sent out of the world with a lie on his lips, for up to the last Duflfs solemnly asseverated to the rev. gentleman his innocence, always saying, " Well, I never done it."
