COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 13 June 1876

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. The Aje reports :-The import markets exhibited an unchanged aspect at the close of the week; not much animation was shown this morning, but the articles recently at tracting notice remain in undiminished favor. Breadstuffs are inactive, the sluggishness of the trade demand for flour depriving the market of all appearance of life. One cause in operation tending to increase the dulness in the market is the extent to which the pernicious practice of selling flour for forward delivery has been again given way to this season by some of the city millers, who are under engagement to deliver large parcels in instalments as may be required during the course of the year at prices ranging from £11 15s. to £12 per ton-rates leaving no margin or profit over manufacturing cost for some months, past. Good Northern wheat is worth to-day 5s. 9d., bags included, but there is little business doing, buyers and sellers being alike indifferent to pu...

[AovsaTuarsxzr.j T HE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. It.is a fundamental principle 4f the English Constitution that representation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their own laws. The 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 conbtantly obstructed by the Legislative Council, which represents only a portion of the community, thet portion being the propertied class. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, become 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 of local impro...

THE LARGEST FARM IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 June 1876

TIlE LARGES'IT AR1 INA VICT' ORIA. 1-aving heard so much during the past few years of the farming speculations of Mr. C. Koch, we determined to pay his property a visit, and accordingly 'drove over the other day. Before arriving thie heavens poured torrents of rain down upon us, and of course the pleasure of the drive was greatly marred. Arriving at the farm, however, the discom Iiture we had suffered was seei to have been far more than counterbalanced in that the downpour had gladdened the heart of our host. Sixteen ploughs.were standing still, and some thirty odd horses feeding in stalls instead of being at work, but: Mr. Koch did not begrudge this, as the ploughs were in tough land, and he knew that the rain would greatly ease the labor of his stock. Mr. Kloch will have about seventeen' hundred acres'under crop. The land operated upon on the occasion of our visit was a paddock of 750 acres at Nangeela, leased' by Mr. Koch from Msessrs. s'Pherson for three years. Our well known fa...

FEMALE BOXING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 June 1876

SEMALEA BOXING MATCUI -4----- One of the latest "sensations" in New York has been a "female boxing match," aptly described by the New York Times as a "novel and nonsensical exhibition." The combatants-or "lady contestants," as they are called in the report of the proceedings were two, ballet-girls, of the kind known as "variety dancers." One, Miss Saunders, wiore a white bodice, purple knee breeches, whichshe haid borrowed from an Ethopian serenader, red stockings, and shoes. The other, Miss Rose Harland, was attired in blue truilks and white tights. Both ap peared nervous, were very pale, tried to blush, and "partially succeeded." When fighting began Miss IHarland "did not know what to do with her hands." Miss Saun 'ders, however, had her fists more at com mand, and after some preliminary sparring, succeeded in striking her opponent " square in the face." Biss Harland, on her side, "by a vicious blow from the shoulder," managed to disarrange Miss Saunder's back hair. Both ladies th...

THE COST OF ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 June 1876

THE COST OP AD VER TIHSING. The following extract from the American Newspaper Reporter will be of interest to many of our readers, especially those who are proprietors of newspapers, who will be enabled to compare the prices, which 'they charge for advertisements with those which their fortunate brethern in the United States seem able to command. For the sake of convenience we have reduced the sums from American into English currency, at the rate of 4s. to the dollar :-" The number of large cities in the United States having' a power ful and thorougly organised Press would naturally give rise to supposition that adver tising was cheaper here than in' England, where the very large papers are few in num ber. But such is not the case.o . Harper's Weekly, for. example, considered an impor tant medium for scattered ' advertising, re ceives from Gs. to 10s.

PLAYING CA RDS FOR A WIVEU. An extraordinary occurrence is thus des cribed by the Vewa York fHerald of a recent date :-One of the mhost singular incidents in the history of the matrimonial lottery took place at No. 154, Johnson-avenue, Williams burg; it being the playing of a game of cards for the possession of a wife by her two living husbands. The causes of this plhenomenal incident, briefly told, are as follow :--Inthe fall of 1871 Louis Lange, a barber, married Annie Hottsmann, of Hiudson City, N.J., after a courtship of two weeks. They lived together a very quarrelsome life for a few months, and then, in a fit of passion, lie de serted her and went to Chicago.

ORIGIN OF TYPHOID FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 June 1876

ORTGIN OF TYPHOID FEVER. I The examinations of Dr. Kleil are corn municated in a report made to the Privy Council by lMr. Simon, its medical officer. It may lie remarked en passant that the Privy' Council probably performs no wiser action than finding out by means of the examination of experts the habitat and habits of different diseases, and no better proof could be had of this than the results of Dr. Klein's irvesti gations-if, of course, he is correct in these. IDr. Klein's special mission was to find out the origin of typhoid or enteric fever. That disease, which is now the terror of the country for its prevalence and malignancy, has long been known or at least suspectedto proceed from a specific poison generated in the body of a patient, and given to others by such means as water polluted with sewage. Dr. klein thinks he has traced this poison to its hiding-place, and believes he has ascer tained it to be a small fungus or micrococcus, which is either inhaled in very impure air...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 June 1876

THE drainage of what is known as the "chain of lakes," or " Calvert's lakes," is a subject of the utmost importance, and one which demands immediate and serious consideration. The quantity of land which is yearly submerged by these lakes is something very considerable, and would scarcely be credited were it generally known. Old residents in this district can testify to the fact that a few years since they could walk dryshod over places which are now several feet under water, and that thousands of acres have become submerged in a com paratively short period. The Shire Valuer is now compelled yearly to make allowance on behalf of numerous rate payers on account of this submergence, and the result is a corresponding de crease in the shire revenue. Mean while, no steps are being taken by either the Celac Shire Council or the Govern ment to remedy the evil, and so the waste and ruin of land goes on un checked. Some three years ago a depu tation from the district waited upon Mr. J. J. CAS...
