TOPDRESSING PASTURE FIELDS, MEADOWS, & YOUNG GRASSES. (NORTH BRITISH AGRICULTURIST.) [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 January 1868
TOPDRESS1NG PAST'URg :FIEIA)S, MEAI)O S1 , &, YOUN( G (l.AS:\SI,: . (NORT|ir ,lI'I'I4ii A aOI U.IUR h IST,.) TILE practice of topdressing grass lands is 'not -so general aas it ought to be. ,For not withstanding the diflbrolce between the amount of the produce obtained from lands which have been nmanured on the surfilco .compared with that procured from lauds of a similar quality, but not manured, is usually so great as to leave a considerable p)rofit on the outlay, tpdlressing grass is very excep tional. The advanutag aceruing fri'on the practice is, besides, not conlined to one season, but the ellffects can generally be traced during the second, and sometimes for several seasons-the continued action of the m1uanurcs being in a great umeasure dependent upon their constituent elements, the manurial con dition of the soil, and the requirements of the plants. Those f'ertilisers which supply lime, silicates, pl)ospIhtes, potash, and soda. are the most lasting; while the action ...
LAND COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 January 1868
LAND COMMISSION, Orr Tu'sday last, Mnt. A. MIorrah, from the Lause Department, assisted by Mr. Harding from the samo office, and Mr. J. Young, J.P., sat in the Courthouse, Bacchus Marsha, ne a Commission to hear and decide upon applications to occupy land under the 42nd clause. Mr. Stuart Murray, con tract surveyor for the distriet, was also present. The proceedings commenced at ten o'clock, and lasted barely one hour. The applications were not very numerous, and in no case was there any. persistent opposition. The procels of granting the applications was of the briefest possible nature, but at the same time we heard no complaints, and have every reason to believe that the applicants will do the State service as bone fido agriculturists. After the oetusl business of the Comminssion had terminated, several intending licensees consulted Mr. MIorrah as to the course they should pursue. Mr. T'imothy Leohey desired to obtain a grazing license for land whereon he now resides, fronting lot...

MAIN ROAD FROM BACCHUS MARSH TO BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 January 1868
MAIN ROAD PROMI BACCHUS MARSH TO BLACKWOOD. M?Esss. G. G. Paterson and G, Grant were on -Tuesday last introduced to the Minister of Roads and Railways by Mr. J. T, Smith, M.L.A., as a doputation for the purpose of requesting that the road to Blackwood for five miles through the lBacchus Marsh district might be declared a main Government road. They asked that the main road should be declared to commence from thejunction of the Ballarat and Blackwood roads, near the Presbyterian Church on the Pentland Hills. It was stated by the members of the deputation that the producers of Bacchus Marsh and its neighbour hood found in Blackwood one of their principal markets, but they were placed at a great disadvan tage through competition with the Government Railways; and the formation of a good road would place them on a fair footing to compete with the other places from which Blackwood received its supplies. 'This road, the deputation submitted, would bo the natural way-of traffic from Melbourn...

To the Editor of the Erpresa, Smn,-We poor diggers on Goodman's Creek are subject to a great annoyance, for which the law seems to have provided no remedy.. Perhaps you could suggest something which might relieve us from the burden of our affliction. We have living here, more like a wild beasb than anything else, a man whose crankiness has more of laziness than anything elso in it, and who about once a month robs us of our little stores, hard.earned though they be. You will scarcely credit that we have been subject to this sort of thing, off and on, for the last six years; and though constant complaints have been made, the only punishment he has received has booeen two months under the Vagrant Act, a punishment which seems to suit his constitution rather than otherwise; for directly it is over, back lie comnies to the old locality, expressing great approval of the arraugements in ...

FRIENDLY SOCIETY AT MYRNIONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 January 1868
FRIENDLY SOCIETY AT MYRNIONG. A MEETING convened by advertisement, of persons desirous of joining a Friendly Society at Myr. niong, took place at the Myrnioug Hotel on Saturday evening last. There was a numerous attendance, and Mr. George Grant was called to the chair. Delegates from neighbouring Societies put in an appearance to advocate the merits of their respective Orders, and they wore well r*eceived. . Mr. Gray, of the Grand United Order of Odd. fellows, Blackwood, in a very able address, set forth the superiority of Oddfellowship, not only in a pecuniary, but a social or fraternal point of view as a benefit society. lHe represented it to be unequalled, and its stability beyond question. Its intiquity, too, added to its merits, the Order having been founded by and in the reign of Vespasian, the Roman Emperor. The speaker submitted to a severe cross-examination by the delegates of other Orders, but was well supported by four brethren who accompanied.him. Brother Morrison humoro...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 11 January 1868
BLACKWOOD. &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A MEETING of the supporters of Messrs. King, Riddell, and Smith, was held on Friday evening last, in the Oddfellows' Hall, Golden Point. The attendance was very small, somewhat about twenty persons being present. Messrs. Walker and Vinson proposed and seconded motions favourable to the present members, and Mr. Miller appeared in opposition. It appears through some blunder on the part of those who were interested in the return of Mr. Magnus as a member of the Ballan Shire Council, that the papers nominating that gentleman did not reach the hands of the returning officer until two hours after the time required. Mr. Ryan, therefore, takes his seat at the Council without opposition; but another election for this Riding will occur in a few months, and when that time comes I trust that the nominators of Mr. Magnus will exercise more discretion. There is every probability of a reaction in min- ing matters, as the variou...
