MYRNIONG. (FlROx OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Tue opening of the Grand MIyrniong Lodio of the G.U.O.O.F. took placo at the Myrniong Hotel on Wednesday evening last. The D.G.M. and the D.S., Castlemaine District, woro in attendance, as well as the requisite olicers and members of the Nil Dcsperandum Lodge, Bliackwood. About twenty-one persons were initiated, and others duly proposed for admission. Oflicers were likewise elected to manago the newly-established Lodge, which Lodge will, in all likelihood, soon become a very strong one. The social and moral influence of such an honourable fraternity on the Pentland Hills must necessarily have a benefloial offeot throughout the entire distriot. At the tormination of the proceodings, host Swannell, in his usual hospitable style, invited the whole company to a sumptuous repast, which, as a matter of course was done ample Justice to. The D.G.M. occupied the chair, and Dr. Robertson the Vice chair. Various toasts were enthusiastically drunk and ab...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 18 January 1868

BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) AN accident of an alarming and nearly fatal nature took place at Blackwood on Friday last, by which a fine young man named David Harry almost lost his life. It appears that the unfor- tunate fellow and his mates were cleaning out an old shaft, when one side of the shaft fell in, and covered him up to the neck; both legs were broken, one at the thigh and the other at the ankle joint. He suffered a great deal, and the dangerous nature of the accident rendered his removal to the Kyneton Hospital indispensably necessary. He is a member of the Order of Odd- fellows, and no doubt something good will be done for him. A very important public meeting was held at the Oddfellows' Hall, Golden Point, Blackwood, on Monday night last, for the purpose of taking steps towards preventing the grant of a certain water lease to H. Walker and Another, of Blackwood. The meeting was largely and respectably attended, upwards of 150 miners having been present. E. Bab...

MOUNT EGERTON. (FiOal OUR oWN CORmESrPONDENT.) Oun election passed off very quietly. The only candidate who pat in an appearance was Mr. Hopkins, who addressed a numerous body of the electors at Mr. B. Murphy's Mount Egerton Hotel. His views upon the present crisis met with the . approval of his auditors, and he was unanimously declared a fit and proper person to represent us in the ensuing Parliament. The day of polling proved that we had confidence in him, as he was placed in close proximity to our worthy and respected member, Mr. P. Lalor. The poll was -Lalor, 40 ! Hopkius, 42; Stutt, 24; Cunningham, 10, I have' to record gross neglect on the part of those fn authority, by which ten votes were lost to the two. popular candidates, by the names of the house. holders not being on the roll.

MYRNIONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 25 January 1868

MYRNIONG. (FRO5M OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A PORTION of the Myrniong bridge was carried away by the flood on Saturday last, ,nand traffic was for some time suspended. A temporary affair has since been constructed, but the mishap will necessitate the erection of a new bridge. It would be far moro satisfactory to the ratepayers had there been a substantial one built in the first instance. The niggardly saving of a few pounds is bad economy in bridgo-making. The money so recently expended on the late bridge might as well have been thrown into the creek; yot the misfortune was foretold by almost every one, except the parties immediately concerned. Surely some one is to blame. Messrs. King, Riddell and Smith, according to announcement, met the electors of the Pentland Hills at Swannoll's Hotel, Myrniong, on Saturday last. A great many persons had assembled, not withstanding the inclemency of the weather. Mr. H. Mleikle, sen., was called to the chair, and in a very elaborate address eulogis...

TILE ELECTIONS, ''rin polling at Bacchus Mardsh on Tuooday did not oxcite more than the average amount of attention, although that is saying a good d:al, for party fouling runs high, both at R~oad Board and As sombly elections, Several well-known residents woro actively canvassing during thu day, and there was a good deal said about priestly desires, A considerable crowd assembled to hear the poll doolared, and when Mr. K(ing's lnano ws aun nounced as heading the list a hearty cheer was given, followed by others as the defeat of Mr. Johnston becatme apparent. The number of votes polled was some 212, out of 823 on the roll. Some elcetors were too busy opening oat their sheaves after the late rain, to come to volt, but we are glad to say that many farmers and their men recognised their duty by comning in to vote for the man of their choice. We wo:di urge the necessity of a polling place being appointed at Myrnioug, as it is very inconveniont for the residents there to come to Bacchus ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 25 January 1868

THE first series of elections have terminated in a more decided expression of opinion in favour of the Ministry and the proceedings of the late Assembly than we had expected; and, as we stated last week, the success now gained will materially strengthen the Minis. torial cause in the two series of elections yet to be held. As a Ministerial organ, we have reason to indulge in some congratulatory phrases in celebration of our triumph, but thle victory is so groat and complete that such jubilation would be rather undignified, we fancy. In fact, the result of the polling gives some reason for a feeling of.sadness that the members of the Opposition should so persistently oppose the opinions of the colo nists, so unanimously expressed. Thle busi ness of the country and its prosperity-in which we aro all interested-is neo ectedI and injured because the members of the Upper House will not bow their heads to that power which all communities acknowledge as supreme-public opinion; because they...
