Kilmore Free Pres PUBLISHED THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 1871. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 27 April 1871

PUBLISHD THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 1871. CAPTAIN M'MA]ToN has been elected Speaker of the Victorian Assembly without opposii tion, and whilst pleased that such a selection has been made, and that a gentleman of the gallant Captain's abilities and attainments has been chosen to preside over the iml portant deliberations of the members of the Legislative Assembly, we cannot help recognising his unanimous appointment as a . good omen of success for him in his new and responsible position. When we heard of the hon. Mr. DuFFr's graceful retirement from the contest for the Speakership we felt certain that the gentleman who has had such confidence lately expressed in him would have been chosen, and whilst convinced that the honourable member for Dalhousie possessed many qualifications which rendered him perhaps better adapted for the position of Speaker than any other gentleman inside the House, we yet believe that it would almost be physically impossible for him to perform the...

THE FACE AT THE WINDOW. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 27 April 1871

T lE FACE AT THE WINDOW. to obl As I remarked, we without loubt often p have Death close at hand-even laying his bony finger on our elbow--without being of aware of hiis presence and onr danger. of Sometimes this fact is proved to us in a very p odd manner-even years after it may have ,E happened-and it is witl, reference to an d; incident or rather a thrieerepeated incident, w of this kind, that I am about to speak. a, Some years ago, business took me to the old cc seaport town of Whitby, in the North Rid ing of Yorkshire, mcplace which is in some tI degree, connected vwith Australian history, tl inasmuch as it was the town in which Cap tain Cook-of illustrious memory-was first e apprenticed to the sea, and imbibed those a nautical ideas which eventually led to the discovery of New South Wales.

CONCERT IN AID OF KILMORE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 27 April 1871

CONCERT IN AID OF KILMORE HOSPITAL. On Friday evening last a concert was given in the Kilmore Mechanics' Institute by the Kilmore Ethiopian Minstrels—the hall being crowded. Punctual to time the company made their appearance on the stage, and having gone through the " Night Bell Galop " and the opening chorus, the songs were proceeded with. Mr Dolphin's " Sighing is a Folly,", was well rendered, and "Kiss me Mother, Kiss your Darling" was given with considerable taste by Mr Castles, whilst " Ring de Banjo " suited Mr R. W. Harrington's voice admirably, and was given in a most pleasing manner. " Shall we ever meet again" was creditably re- dered by Mr Marchant, as was: also " Gone are the Days" by Mr Bower, though we must say we have heard the latter gentleman in much better voice, Mr Brown's ren- dering of " The Moon behind the Hill" was very creditable, and Mr Booth's comic song " Hat and Feather" created amuse- ment. "'Nora O'Neal," by an amateur, was certainly one of the best pie...

EXTRAORDINARY RESCUE FROM EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 May 1871

EXTRAORDINARY RESCUE FROM EXECUTION; -4~o- 'A letter from Versailles narrates the foh lowing whicn occurred at a village twenty miles from Paris:--" Two men fired on a Bavarian detachment; one of them was the mayor, and the other his most particular friend. A general " go in " took place, a few houses were s9t on fire, a few old women promiscuously slaughtered. The mayor and his particular friend were disrespectfully appropriated by the invaders, were tied, instantly condemned to be " passed by arms," as the French suggestively put it-in plain English, shot. They were brought out on the market place, their eyes bandaged with their own pocket handkerchiefs ; twelve muskets were brought to bear upon them six upon each of their two hearts; when and here begins the remarkable part of the story. As the twelve muskets were levelled at their hearts, a cry was heard, a voice arose. " Those two men are mad !" said the voice. The officer in command whispered to his men " Suspend." So the men ...

FPULIs?sD THUISDAY MoRNING. THURSDAY, MAY 4, 1871. TuE public mind has been in a feverish state of excitement lately in the neighbourhood of Lancefield and Romsey, and the subject which has caused so much eonsternatioa is one almost of as great importance as the securing of a suitable site for 'the Little. Pedlington town pump. The population in. and about the great centre of Romsey are anxious that, with attaining to the dignity of the district becoming a shire, they are fully entitled to the privilege of christening it as they please, whilst on the other. hand those resident in the Lancefield division are working most strenuously to have the new body called--instead of the Lancefield Road Board--the, Lancefield Shire Council. Of course. outside the immediate neighbourhood the interest evinced in the allimportant topic is not of an overpowering; character and indeed before this we thought it scarcely worth alluding to, believing 'there is not much in a name, and that the general pu...
