No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 May 1871

The debate on the address in reply to the Viceregal speech was concluded in thi Legu. lative Assembly on Tuesday, and the address was agreed to without a division. An amendment regretting the omission in the speech of any allusion to the subject of pro, tection was moved by Mr L L. Smith, but fell to the ground for want of a seconder. The discussion presented but a few features of interest, ,nd was perhaps the most pur poseless chich has ever taken place on a ai:nilar occasion. As His Excellency is still inlisposed, it is uncertain when the address will be presented. 3Mr Casey introduced a bill into. the Legis.. lative Assembly on Tuesday afternoon to de. termine the number of hours which shall constitute a legal day's work. An important provision of the measure, which was read a first time, is contained in a clause which prol hibits children under 12 years of age from working. It is also proposed to exempt con tracts on piecework from the operation of h e act. The Legislative Counc...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 May 1871

TO THE EDITOR OF TILE FREE PRESS. Sa,-Hayes v Kennedy and another. In your report of this case it is made to appear that it was withdrawn by the police on pay, mnen, by defendants of ten pounds to the otcspital, six pounds six shillings to. MJr HIayes and law costa, amounting in the whole to nineteen pounds and upwards. This is not correct. The six pounds six shillings was not paid to Mr Hayes but to me as my coats of conducting the prosecution. Mr THyes made no claim for compensation for the injuries he had sustained. He only demanded one pound ten shillings, price of a coat destroyed by defendants, and ten shillings, which he had to pa3 a substitute in the two days he had to attend the court. The.e sums he was paid, and no more. Tour obedient servant, THOMAS ~E CO.UROY MEADE, Complainants' Attorney. Kilmore, May 3rd, 1871i

THE HOUSE OF ARGYLL. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 May 1871

,' THE HOUSE OF ARGYLL. " It's a cry far to Lochow," says an old t Highland proverb; meaning that the dreaded Campbells were so secure in their fastness, Lochow, that they were far beyond the reach of an invading ene-ny. It is historically, a far cry back to the twelfth century, when the Norman Gillespie-le-Camile made his way north and wedded the fair Eva, heiress of Macillanor McCallum More, representa tive of the long line of Highland chieftains who owned Lochow and other fair spots in the estern Highlands. The poet Thomas Campbell, author of the "Pleasures of Hope," claimed to descend from this Gillest pie, and was proud of displaying -" ----the orest That erat the adventurous Norman wore Who won the lady of the wealt, The daughter of Macalian More." lHow much prouder would he have been had he lived to see a royal rose grafted on the old stein-a daughter of England's Queen wooed and won by a Lord of Lorne, the heir to the chieftain of the famous Campbells ! The mingling of the N...

A PRISON SCULPTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 May 1871

A PRISON SCULPTOR. Visitors to Pentridge must for a consider- able time past, have had their attention directed to a massive and handsome work of   art, that is rapidly approaching completion. It is a fountain of rare and elegant design, entirely executed in bluestone. At the base   it measures about 20 feet across, and it is proportionate in height. The basin supported on a pillar beautifully carved, rests on the square base. It is cut from a solid block of stone, and from its size, must weigh consider- ably over a ton. The base itself is richly ornamented, and bears indications of a lavish expenditure of labour. At the sides are representations of eagles, with their wings full spread, and chains suspended from their beaks. Above this, the outer portion of the basin is embellished with intricate but ex- tremely handsome designs, encircling a variety of finely executed human masks. Surmounting the basin is a statue of a boy, holding a jet of water, and this...

ELISE'S VANITY. A GERMAN LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 11 May 1871

ELISE'S VANITY. '-0-- A GERMAN LEGEND,. The vanity of the fair sex, it is said, is of the same age as the sex itself. A clever writer, in defending this trait of the femi. nine character, has said that it constitutes its greatest charm; that without it the sex would lose half its attraction; and in support of this theory there is the old quaint story of the German maiden; a history which is so uretty and tender, that it is worth rescuing from the forgotten legends of the Fatherland. A maiden lived on the banks of the Rhine with her father, the miller. Now the maiden, Whose name was Elise, was not pretty, and she was cross and fretful, for she grieved at her own lack of beauty, and thought that none would never care for her on account of the few graces Nature had given to her; so she did not even try to please, and yet her heart was very large and very kindly. 8he spent half her time in front of her looking glass, lamenting her plainness, and thinking how impossible it was that Carl ...

THE VOICE AT THE DOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 11 May 1871

THE VOICE AT THE DOOR. I sat alone one wintry nght, Weary and sad with thinking; For in my brain a dismal chain Thought's busy slaves were linking. Without, the wind went sweeping by, With low and sullen roaring, And bearing on its wings a cry Like one for help imploring. I heard with' dim foreboding ear, The sound came nearer-nearer; 'Twas at my door; a tone it bore- Ah, none to me were dearer ! " Oh Henry, Henry, let me in! The night is dark and dreary; And from the hill the wind blows chill, And I so cold and weary. "In my lone grave how could I sleep When thou wert not beside me ? I sobb'd and pray'd where I. was laid, Till earth refused to hide me. " And in my winding sheet I fled, When midnight chimed above me; And from death's door I come once more To seek the triends that love me; " Oh many a toilsome mile I've trod Thy arms to feel around me, And many a mile to see thee smile, And now at last I've found thee, " No star did guide thy lonely bride, With snow the track is shro...

PUBLISHED THURSDAY MIORNING. THURSDAY, MAY 11, 1871. TirE members of the Board of Management of the Kilmore Hospital have, at the present moment, a very unpleasant duty to perform, a duty they cannot shirk, however disagree able the task, without they run the risk of materially damaging the best interestd of the charity: For some time past matters not very creditable to some of the paid servants of the institution have been talked over, and many scandalmongers have found ample food to exercise their particular calling in respect, without, however, anything having assumed a tangible shape, or specified charge, that the Board thought it necessary to deal with. It has, however, been apparent to most amongst us that some change in the internal management of the Hospital has been necessary for some time past, and though it has been generally admitted, but few of the members of the Board were pre pared to perform a small evil-to act harsh -that a great good may be effected, and, things ha...

FARLIE'S SYSTEM OF CHEAP RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 11 May 1871

FýRLIE'S SYSTEM OF CHEAP RAILWAYS. -4--- TO THE EDITOR OF THE PREIE PEB8S S?,-A.s one of the oldest advocates of a line of railwa-: to the Murray River, via Kilmoro, I need hardly Eay that, in common with the rest of my fellow townamen, I have been much disappointed at the route finally selected by the Govtrnment, skirting the town as it dots by a mile and a half, or there about; Engineering difficulties, po doubt, is assigned as the reason, otherwise such an important place as Kilimore would never be overloaked. I havo always held that ti e town of Kilmore must ho conncctcd with the main line, either by rail or a tram road, and the present time seems to me the most o?portune to bring the matter before the public, especially the Borough Council, and the surround ng Shires and Road Boards. If my memory aerves me, I think the Borough Council have already had., a promise given them by the heon. the Minister of Works, that a good macadamised road would be made from Kilmore to the propos...

PERAMBULATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 11 May 1871

PERAMBULATOR. The people will remark "Perambulator" has not been heard of for a long time: My productions, I admit, are like angel's visits -few and far between-but I have rather a lively recollection that my visits formerly seemed others than those of angels, to many people-my friend Mr Bourke amongst the number, who laboured under the mistaken notion that I was jibing him, whereas I re commended the collection of his speeches for dissemination among his ,many admiring constituents, and for transmission to pos terity. Having been out of Kilmore for some time past on important business, I could not pay due attention to his actions in the new Parliament, never seeing a daily paper, but I am prepared to hazard my small opinion that he never excelled that cele brated speech made on the hustings when returned by the majority of 82! That French word he made use of puzzled many of the uninitiated, but if Larry did not thoroughly understand the word Cath-brack (1 believe that is it), I am ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 11 May 1871

O THE EDITOR GP THE FR?EE PRESS. SIr,--Mucb has been said as to the mora lity of Kilmore, but I think religion and its ministers must be getting at a very low ebb, when they have to resort to such doings as is now the case to keep things straight. It is not very long since I read in the paper about a rail or something of the sort being placed in the Catholic Chapel, which caused some unpleasantness and annoyance to several of the congregation, and I was informed it was very speedily removed. Now at the present time there is a bar placed in St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, quite spoiling the appearance of the interior of the church, to divide the seats. What the managers could be thinking about is left to themselves. It puts me very much in mind of what I have heard about some of the low sparring saloons where they have a bar to spar over (here you are, first slap in the face for sixpence), and something striker me it must have been done for some such purpose, as I believe there is a...
