LATEST TELEGRAMS. (FIRe3I OUeL OWN COIRELSPONNDENTS.) CAMPtERDOwN, Thursday, 8 p.m. A very lamentable fatal accident occurred here to-day, resulting in the death of Mr. William Allen, grandson of Mr. James Allen, of the Cam2perdown Chronicle. The deceased, who was a promising young man, eighteen years of age, went out shooting, accompanied by a younger brother and another lad. In order to get some ducks in the Leura Swamp, deceased entered a small punt, and was in the act of drawing his gun towards him, when it acci dentally exploded, the charge entering his breast, killing him almost instanta neously. An inquest is to be held this evening. The sad event has caused a feeling of universal regret. [From a personal knowlhdge of the poor youth, we may state that a bright career has thus suddenly been brought 'to a close.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 26 May 1876

AT the last meeting of the Shire Coun cil the Trustees of the Colac Public Gardens offered to hand over the con trol of the Gardens to the Council, but the offer was accompanied with a con dition that the Council should also accept the liabilities of the Trustees. After some short discussion the offer of the Trustees was "respectfully de clined,". the Comncil deciding that when the Gardens are clear of debt they will accept responsibilities connected with their management. This decision of the Council at first blush appears to be fair and reasonable, but when all the circumstances of the case are taken into consideration, we think that a little more consideration might have been shown by the Council, and that they might at least have consented to pay half the anmount for which the Trustees are at present liable. We are most decidedly not in favor of the rate payers' money being diverted from its proper channels, but in this instance we contend that it would be a fair and legitimate ...

The wicket was very hard and bumpy, and the outer circle having recently been covered with loam, where the ball fell there it re. mained. Mr. Burt acted as umpire for Colac, and M'r.

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 26 May 1876

NOTES AND EVl'NT:. We notice that, with the usual unscrupu lousness which characterises certain journals, the Colac Times and tile Geelong Times have been endeavoring to make capital out of a telegram which appeared in the Haompden Guardian, of 19th instant. This telegram records the trutlhfl result of Mr. Connor's meeting, but an evident mistake appeared in it, as it stated that the motion against Mr. Conner "was carried unanimously by a tremendous majority." The insertion of the word unanimously is such an obvious error, that no one with the love of faio, play would take any notice of it, so it is quite useless to make further comment respecting it. But when tihe Colac Times states that the telegram was altogether wrong as to facts, it is stating what is untrue, and what it knows to be untrue. The report published, by this paper of Mr. Connuor's meeting is en tirely at variance with the truth, and this can easily be ascertained from the first half dozen persons one nmeets in the s...

Being an old resideit of Colac, I have many oppor tunities of ascertaining how the wind blows, and this latest scurrilous effusion of your subsidised contemporary has only succeeded in evoking expressions of disgust amongst the general body of the people, though no doubt it is "nuts'" to certain well known individuals. It is the duty of the people of Colac to support THE HElRAlLD, as it has always fearlessly spoken out to correct abuses, and that they do support it is easily to be seen when your advertising columns and those of tlhe subsidised Colace Timaes are compared.

(TO TIIE EDITOPR OF TIIE HERALD).. Sm,-One scarcely knows which to admire most, the admirable simplicity or the mar vellous ignorance of MIr. J. H. Connor's two newly-formed friends. They stand out so, in such bold relief, one over against the other, as to be perfectly dazzling to most ople, and to none more so than to Mr. Connor himself. One very noticeable fact in connection with this contention between the electors and IMr. Connor, is the substitut' tion of Mr. Craig for the wild man from Weering, and MIr. Patricek Brett, of "stone jug" policy notoriety, for Mr. Adam Rea, whose slipperiness has become so univer sally known and detested, as to be shunned by both parties. - On the whole, I think few will dispute Mr. Connor's craft in the choice of henchmen, considering the straits to which he is at present re...
