FUBLISHID THUISDAY MOUNING, THURSDAY; MAY 18, 1871. .ITwe were, asked what is the prominent feature that characterizes local government in this part of the colony,,we should.reply deliberate swindling. If asked.for a reason we could adduce more than one, and if our answers did not fully satisfy, the querist,, we should recommend a close. scrutiny of the doings of some-of our road boards, and, if, after minute examination anyone could be fUad. stupid enou&h. to.state, the term." dý iberate.swindling' is misapplied, then wQould we almost be induced to think that any opinion we have hitherto entertained upon any subject must necessarily be incorrect. If the general public, however, are prepared to. wink at villany,,if ratepayers in road districts are ever ready to shut their eyes, keep them shut, and pay no attention to the manner in which their funds are distributed, so much the worse for themselves, but we cannot iiu the performance of:our duty, avoid reminding them of what t...

"GOOD NIGHT." [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 18 May 1871

" GOOD.NIGHT." -4---e----- r The sweet starlight is burning bright, gi The sounds of deylight cease ; The greater part of Earth's loud mart tl Is silent and at peace. The busy hands are lying still, G The troubled heart is calm; God grant no vision'd shades ofill ti May poison Sleep's sweet balm. ft Good-night, good-night to all I love, Where-e'er this moonlight gleams i p Where.e'er they are, at home or far, b Good.night, and pleasant dreams. t For some are with me every day, t And some have been gone for years; s Some are hidden by Time away, And some by a mist of tears ; 1 And some have forgotten what used to be, And began their lives anew; Love once is love, for ever with me, Be the dear one false or true. So my wish goes forth in the moon's pure light, And my prayerclimbs up on her beams ; For all I love on earth good-night, Good-night and pleasant dreams. I have it said, when the wearied frame In sleep is lying still, The spirit flies from earthly ties Around the world at will...

FATAL ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 18 May 1871

FATAL ACCIDENT'   We regrrt this week to have to record another. fatal accident in this neighbourhood. On Saturday afternoon a young man named John Flynn a con   tractor, who was hardworking, industrious and respectable, was riding, in company with two or three others, and was thrown from his horse, and sutsined injuries from which he never rallied, but remained insensible up to the time of his death, which took place on Tuesday. evening about nine o'clock. From the evidence of Thomas Dowling and Thomas Morris. at the inquiry held yesterday before Dr Mackay, coroner, as to the cause of death, it appeared the first named and deceased, after some conversation, about racing their horses, decided upon having a friendly gallop for drinks, and when near the small bridge close to the Farmers' Arms Hotel, deceased's bridle rein broke, and he was precipitated forward. Both witnesses agreed that deceased, though having had same drink, was quite capable of taking care...

ARRIVAL OF THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 May 1871

ARtRIVAL OF TiTE EMPEROR NA POLEON. One of the most exciting scenes that has perihaps ever been witnessed in Dover oc, curred on 20th March, when the Emperor Napoleon arrived from the Continent on the termination of his captivity. The Fmperor, who on landing was cheered at every step, had not taken a dozen paces before he met the Ernoress and the Prince Imperial, who, followed by a great many peple, had walked from the pier towards the harbor. The Empresa rushed forwari|, put her arms round her husband's neck, and passionately kissed him five or six times. The Prince Imperial saluted his father in'a similar manner. The crowd was so dense that their Majesties an I the prince could only proceed with great difficulty. In vain did the policemen and the gentlemen of the Imperial suites endeavor to clear the way; the people were anxious to get a elimpse of the illustrious exiles, and as they cheered, pushed forward in such a way that at one time it was thought that the Empress might be in...

THE CHILDREN'S GOOD-NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 May 1871

THE CHILDREN'S GOOD-NIGHT. Ere to their nightly rest they go I kiss them one by one, And pray that God will spare them all To see to-morrow's sun. Their arms around my neck they wreathe, Their eyes shine like a star, While, in clear tones of love, they cry, "Good-night, good night, papa !" ScoT as ve may, O callous men, By selfish cares beguiled, Blind to the grace, deaf to the voice Of music in a child; I have not heard- a sweeter tone In all my jaurneys far, Than lingers in those tendler words, " Good-night, good-right papa !" While the young hearts in dreams are Ana I brood o'er the fire [rapt, Their happy voices haunt my brain, And mournful thonuhta inspire. So soon the years will hurry by On Time's swift rolling car, And thons sweet words he not for me, " Good-night, good-night papa !" Yet I may linger here below (As God, may dPem most richt) Till children's children, gather'd round, Bid me a lons goodl-night ! And haply to one sound of earth The grave mary h no bar The echo of...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KILMORE GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 May 1871

TO. THE EDITOR OF THE KIT?uiORE GUARDIAN; SIu,-In the report of the proceedings of the Seymour Shire Council which appeared in your issue of the 11th inst., your reporter is again at fault. LHe has made it appear. the letter received from the Broadford Dis trict Road Board stated the original letter. which gave rise to the correspondence was: addressed to the chairman ofrthe District Road Board, " Yea," and the envelope con- taining the same was addressed to the chair man of the Broadford Road Board; " such: is not the case." In justice to the writer I assert most emphatically it contained no. such statement, therefore the report as it ap peared in your paper is neither true. or cor xect. If your reporter wish to try to vindicate. the action of that body. in the matter which he knows is decidedly wrong, I deem it my duty, in justice to myself, not to allowv such; erroneous statement go uueorntradicted. .I am, sir, Your obedient servant,.

JOURNALISTIC IMPUDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 May 1871

JOURNALISTIC IMPUDENCE. THuER is nothing which. to our mind reflects so discreditably either on public bodies or private individuals as breach: of trust in the performance of these functions, with which they are entrusted. Circumstances. may be cited which would lessen the heinousness of the offence of murder or any other capital crime, but when a person undertakes the performance of a duty, with a general know: ledge of the etiquette or practice that guides those in similar positions, then should they allow no circumstances step in. to prevent them from the due fulfilmont of their self) imposed obligations. We undertake, with pain,.this week to point out whatwe conceive to be a gross breach of public trust on. the part of our local contemporary, but in doing so we are happy to be able to state at the outset that the conduct we are about to complain, of is almost unprecedented in the- history of colonial or home journalism,. but is, generally scouted by the practice and usages of th...

TO THE EDITOIL OF THE FREE EPRESS. Sin,--Having recently noticed in the columns of your contemporary what I take to be a somewhat grave departure from the recognised usages of journalism, will you. kindly allow me space for. a few remarks on the subject-it being a matter that ought to. concern. the public. generally, but more es. pecially those of the public who feel, an, interest in the welfare of the press. Some few weeks back there appeared an anony mous letter. in the Kilmore Guardian, which, reflected on the character ot a schoolmaster at Longwood,,and this letter was, I. may state,, crouched in terms such as I. have never be fore seen admitted into the columns of a newspaper ;. no, not even if paid for. as an ad vertisement. As an attack; upon the reputa tion of a private individual, whoever he might be, it was a most intemperate shame-. ful letter. In any right mind the feelings awakened by that dastardly, production were those ofreprobation towards the cowardly scribbler, wh...
