LATE TELEGRAMS. LONDON, May 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

LATE TELtEGRtiAMS. LOsDos, May 15. The Liberal papers in reviewing the proclamation of the newtitleof Empress, sharply criticise the absence of the words limiting the title to India only, as promised by Mr. Disraeli. Mr. Dis raeli in answering Sir Charles Dilke, said the employment of the Imperial title was necessary for the commissions of oflicers of the army. lie also, in the name of the Queen, denied the assertion of Mr. Lowe that two former Prime Ministers had ever been re quested to propose the new title for the Queen. Mr. Lowe next evening apologised, and retracted his statement. In a discussion in the House of Commons on the 11th, on the motion of Sir 11. James that the proclamation was inadequate to prevent the use of the title in Her Majesty's dominions, other than in India, after :sn animated, debate, in which Sir William Harcourt and the Marquis of 1Iartington supported Mr. Disraeli, rand Mr. 1Harding opposing himii, Mrit.

A TEST FOR SHEEP-WORRYING DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

A TEST FOE SIIEJP-WORRYINCG DOGS. A farmer, named Weetch, living near Taunton, on going into one of his fields last week, found three sheep dead and seventeen others so badly mangled that he had to slatghter them. The condition of the sheep lcft little doubt as to the cause of the ravages being that of dogs. These, however, have so far escaped. The Velterinary Journal makes us acquainted with an excellent plan for detecting culprit dogs, which device was instituted with great success by a veterinary in Wurtemburg, in 1874. A considerable number of sheep had been worried one night, but no dog has been caught in the act. Tihe veterinary surgeon, who was sent for to attend the sheep, noticed a dog, which from his general muddy alppearance, he suspected. He tested his suspicions by giving the animal an emetic, the effect of which wasn to bring up. some flesh and a sheep's oar corresponding to that of one of the sheep whose ear had been partly devoured. The case was tlaken to a law court...

[ADVERTIEsM~ENeT.j rilIIE IATIOiNAL REFORM S--LEAGUE OF VICTORITA. MANIFESTO. It is a fundamental principle of the E:nglish Constitution that representation shoulld go with taxation. It is an in alienable tight of a free people that they should make their own laws. I'he people of this country live under a constitution which, while leaving them comparatively free to elect their awn representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Assembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council. which renresents only a portion of the community, thit portion being the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore. hecoime a nullity, and self-govern ment a sham. . In every civilized country in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue for the State. In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenue grants large annual subsides in aid...

INDIA AND THE EAST. CEYLON, 16th May. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

INDIA AND THE EAST. CEYLON, 16th iMay. The proclamation of the Queen's issumnption of the title of Empress of India has been received with the same acquiescence all over the East that dis tinguisshed the reception of the news of Mr. Disraeli's proposal. The intelligent native press generally prefers the title of Empress to Queen, and Anglo-Indians as well as natives cannot understand the fuss made over the matter in Eng land. For many years medals have been struck, memorials forwarded, and books written in India, :ll with the title of Empress, everyone being in ignorance of the title not being assumed in 1858. Lord Lytton, the new Viceroy, has made a very favorable impression so far. His opening speech gave general satisfaction. Lord Northbrook and suite called at Colombo in the Tenesserim, era route homne, on 21st April. Lord Nortllhbrook was the guest of Governor Gregory till the 23rd, visiting Kandy. It is now runmored that Sir William Gregory may remain here till 1878. Sir Willi...

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

COMMERCIAL. - MELIVOURTNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday evening. The Age reports:-Trade movements are s.ill somewhat slow, no new feature of any importance having developedl itself. Bread stuffs are quiet but tirm. There is no ap lecarance of an immediate revival in the de mand, and in the absence of some such sub stantial support the market can only be sus tained by the stiffness of holders, as there is lno disposition whatever shown to speculate, the present aspect of the market not being favorable to a payable advance. Flour main tains its" usual irregular character as to values in a dull market, for though £12 2s. 6d. to £12 5s. is in some quarters quoted as tile obtainable prices for fair quality, in others £12 5s. to £12 10s. is tirmly required for best birands, and to-day we hear of 150 tons being taken up by one buyer at within the latter range. Wheat is worth 5s. 10d., bags included, for good Northern, with a lansuiid enquiry on the one hand, and light offerings on the other. Pr...

NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

:NOTICES TO CORRESPONDENTS. GEOnRE JACKSON, Courlrre.--Yon appear to have strange ideas respecting the functions of a newspaper. We must respectfully de cline to publish the letter received by you from the young lady in Colac. It is certainly a novel idea to expect a newspaper to publish private correspondence between an indignant fair one and a spiteful young man. The " original" verses from Mfurroon are not up to the standard necessary for publi cation. There is too much confusion amongst the hexameters. Some of the lines seem as if they had been measured with a ten-foot pole, and others with a two-foot rule, while the rhythm is something akin to that pro duced by pumpkins rolling over a barn floor, as an American editor once informed a would-be poetical contributor. THE HERALD, WITH WHICH IS INCORPOIRATED TIIE " COLAC OBSERVER." Publishled on Tuesday and Friday mornings. TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 1876.

TisIue is a class of people in this coun try which sails under false colors. Perhaps there are more classes than one who do that, but we refer to a special and political class, wlsich em braces those wiso profess Liberalism and practice Conservatism. MIany of these are as rank Tories as any to he found in the fatherland, and have sunk their reason in their faith in the infal libility of tile English Constitution. These pseudo-Liberals are the men who are now, and always will be, found in steadfast and higotted opposition to the piroposal for the substitution of annual for triennial Parliaments, which has been adopted by the National Reform League of Victoria arnd its branches, as a plank in the Liberal platform. Tie preposition for annual Parliaments is one which we shall deem wortly of ventilation occasionally, as it is bound to form a principal plank in the Liberal lilatform at not distant general elections.
