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

ELECTION IMEETING. M~ssns. Riddell, Smith and King addressed the electors of Bacchus Marsh, on Saturday evening last, at the Mechanics' Institute. The attendance was oxcoedingly good, considering that the heavy rain, and the washing away of several bridges, prevented many persons from coming to the meeting. On the motion of Me~srs. H. Mxuean and W. WATTS, Mr. J. RYAN was voted to the chair. The CHAIRnJAN remarked that he was not reluctant to take the chair, as a previous Chair man of an election meeting had been; but, on the contrary, he was proud of the opportunity. The gentlemen who were going to address them were old servants, and the more they saw of them the better they liked them. He would call upon Mr. Riddell. Mr. I?vrx,r, commented upon the unfavourable state of the weather, and then said that he thought himself and colleagues had to primarily thank them for the kind expression of satisfaction with the late members which they had given during the week, They all know the nat...

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

REMARKABLE SHIPWRECK. ONE of the most melancholy and romantic misfortunes at sea which have ever been recorded has recently come to light. On the 4th May, 1800, the ship General Grant, with some 80 passengers and crow, and a fill cargo of wool, hides, kc., besides 2,576 ozs. of' old, left Hobson's Bay for Liverpool. No'tidin's were heard of her fi'om that date, and the .insurances were paid some time ago, as all hopes of the safety of the ship or even tidings of it had been given up. On Sunday last, however, intelligence arrived in Melbourne from New Zealand that some survivors from the wreck of the General Grant had been taken off the Auckland Islands and conveyed to Now Zealand. r'he story they tell is narrated below. It appears that the vessel was drawn ashore by some invisible current, and as the anchors and cables were (according tb the account which has reached us) stowed away below, no steps could be taken to stay her progress to destruction. No sensational novelist ever devi...

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

SOUTH GRANT. The electors in the Maddingley division are in the proud position of arbiters of the fate of Messrs. Hopkins and Cunningham as candidates for South Granut., Until the returns came in to Geelong from Maddingley, Mr. Cunningham was generally considered to be rejected, and much satisfaction and some surprise was manifested at the result of the polling there, as Mr. Cunningham had not taken the trouble to in any way make himself and his opinions known to the electors in Mad. dingley and Ballan, MIr. Hopkins is the only gentleman who (lid so, and he is stated to have spent a large sum of money in contesting this election, We might suggest to iuntending candi. dates for South Grantthat the Maddingley DIvision is worthy of their attention until such time as it forms part of West Bourke, which it will do, no doubt, when the Legislature can find time to attend to the pressing necessity for a change in electoral boundaries and representation through. out the colony.

HOW I SET ABOUT PAYING MY DEBTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 February 1868

HOW I SET ABOUT PAYING MY DEBTS. (FO\no "LONDON SOCIETY.") "Now, my dear Frank," said my father, replenishlng his glass the while with some very particular port the old butler had brought out that evening in my honour, " as you start for Oxford early to-morrow, I may as well say now what little I wish to say to you respecting the important stel you are about taking in entering university lite." I took some filbrts andlistenedattentively. " The social advantages of the university," continned my faither, " are, I hold, of very great importance ; but I do not wish you to Ssacrifice its educational advantages to-to it's ahem ! - " S0Oh, no ! certainly not," I interposed (somewhat vaguely, perhaps). " So I shall expect you to take your degree in the usuid course; if as a mere pass.man, well and good ; if with honiours, all the better. Although you will not have to earn your bread (in the accepted use of the term), you : ill find such advantages of use," I assented to all this, inwardly d...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 February 1868

So much attention has'recently been paid to the doings or misdoings of our Parliamentary representatives, and the complications arising therefrom, that possibly the ratepayers of the Bacchus Marsh district have forgotten for the moment that their Road Board is now passing" through a crisis in its fate very much resembling that affecting' the Upper House of this colony. In point of fact, the Bncchus Mar'sh and MLnddingley District Road Board is so involved in debt that unless an effort is made to clear off the overdraft at the Bank during this present year, 1808, the Board will cease to exist. We cannot see that there is any escape from this fate, except by taking such steps as will enable the Board to enter upon the year 1869 free from debt. Our readers are probably aware that the National Bank of Australasia, Bacchus Marsh, has, for some time past, allowed an overdraft to the Board. It now amounts to about £2600, and some of the members of the Board have refused to sign the usual s...

SELECTED :POETRY. I; " . PASSING AWAY, All.beauty ie fairost when passing away, And gains a now charm in its subtle decay, A radiance of touching fragility given T'o all that is fading-to mark it for heaven. 'The sun's latest beam is the brightest he throws; his course is most splendid when noarest its closo ; And Day walling fast, of its and gives no sign, Save the brief and bright hectic that veils its decline. The forest has no summnoer charm that compares SWith the fever of glory it afterwards wears, With the flushes of splondour in which it is dyed When incondiary Autumn his torch has applied. But soon smouldoring ashes are all that proclaim Whore it then lights to gold, where it kindles to flame; 'Tis the fire that consumes it that brightens awhile, And it stands in the blaro of its funeral pile,. In perfootion of beauty the rose meets its doom, And dies in the fulness and flush of its bloomn; The fruit ore the glow of its ripoeness is o'er, When most fair to the eye, has deca...

BALLAN, THURSDAY, JANUARr 80. (Before J. M. Clow, Esq., P.M.) John Howiok v. Thomas IIamilton, Trespass of a bull. Damages J5. Mr. Miller for plantiff, Mr. Ocock for defendant. The evidence of the plaintiff went to show that the fenco round the paddock where the bull was trespassing was a good and substantial one. The Uclch hold that the state of the fence had nothing to do with the question of damagos. Owners of bulls were liable to pay damages, no matter where the animal is trespassing. The defence was that the provisions of the Pounds Statuto had not been complied with, Inas much as the plaintiff had not succeeded in driving the bull home to his owner, and failing to do that, no notion could bo taken in this Court. Tho Bonoh was of opinion that the plaintiff had substantially complied with the Act beforemen tioned, us his wife had sentnotice to the defendant that the damages would be sued for, and further defendant's servant had taken home the bull.
