THE CARLTON FEVER HOLES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 January 1875

THE CARLTON FEVER HOLES. There is at last a fair prospect of some improvement in this hitherto disgraceful blot upon Victoria Ward. It is scarcely credible that in the City of Melbourne there should exist for' so many years a spot so feariully calculated to spread .contagious disease. A chain of about nive acres of stagnant water holee used as the receptacle of all the filth and offal of the neighborhood, to say nothing of the defunct. animals who have found a watery grave in its midst-is enough to brood a plague. Howesor, there is an end to all things, and we are happy in being able to announce a prospect of amend' mint here. We are informed that on Tues. day last Messrs. Curtain and Munro, the members for North Melbourno, waited upon the Minister of Public Works and succeeded, with considerable difficulty, in eliciting from him a promise to use some of the £4000 voted by Parliament for " other public works" (not specified) in filling up this filthy morgue. The argument which sue. ...

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8TH, 1875. PENTRIDGE DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 January 1875

AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8TH, 1875. PENTRIDGE IlSCIPLINE. Wo are beginning to reap the harvest which all thinking men anticipated when the " paladium of British liberty" acquited the notorious Weechurch and shielded him from receiving his well deserved punishment. On his return to Pentridge, one of his fellow prisoners named Wilson took the opportunity of deifying him before a number of the prisoners, and subsequently conducted himself so insubordinately in his cell as to attempt assaulting several of the warders. Of course he was brought before Mr. Call, the visiting justice, and sentenced to seven days' additional imprisonment. Then, two prisoners, respectively named Marshall and Ken- I nedy, broke out into insubordination at I the quarry a few days after, and Marshall was sentenced by the same Police Magistrate to ten days' and Ken nedy to six days' solitary "confine ment. - As for Weechurch he is boast ing that his advocate, Mr. Ifolanid, will have him out of gaol i...

ANOTHER HOTEL IN COBURG. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 January 1875

ANOTHER HOTEL IN COBURG. Another hotel has beenopened in Coburg, opposite the I'entridge Stockade. Already thorn are too many in this district, no less. than six now existing within half a mile. Mr. Alfred MIeadway, the licensqe of the new hotel, which is known as the Coburg Inn, is very sanguine of success, and has been to considerable expense it fitting up and furnishing - his establishment n a. supoerior style. Complaints are Tvery rif©e. in this district of the slackness of business, and difficulty in getting monoy. We-trust Mr. 1Meadway will not be a loser in his ndw sphere of business, but it sLems a very hazardous speculation, where other. houses in the district cannot make business pay.

THE DISCUSSION IN THE COUNCIL ON THE PAVEMENT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 January 1875

TILE DISCUSSION -N THE ? COUN OIL ON THE PAVEMENT QUESTION. Sir-My letter of December 24th on the above subjecat has raised in full cry the whole of bthe Carrollite following. This is no more than Iexpected, for I know that to say a word in favor of Councillor Laurens would affect them as a red rag affects a wild bull-infuriates it. To start, 1 must deny the conclusion arrived at by " A Western Ward Rate payer," that Councillor Laurens was the writer ot the letter signed " Facts." Councillor Laurens was as ignorant of its existence until he saw it in print, as was Councillor Carroll. Your correspondent accuses me of laying " great stress" on the fact of Councillors Fogarty and Carroll leaving the bench.. This, like his other assertions, is totally untrue. My remarks applied to the course of action. they pursued " after" they had left the Sbench, He commences his letter with "I observe in your issue of the 24th inst., a something, that is reality nothing" alluding of course to the le...

On October 26, at the St. Ives (Hunts) Petty Sessions, Mr. Boenjamen Bondigham, of 46, Morpeth street, Sheffield, was charged with feloniously forging and uttering a certain authority for the delivery of the titleodeeds to an estate at Sutton, in the Isle of Ely, on September 29 last. Mr. Horace lBrowno, of the Norfolk circuit, in opontng-tlho cae-Iuor -aLu-'prosecultion, observed that the prisoner was a co-trustee with a Mr. Thompson Priest, of Manea, in the Isle of Ely, of a sum of £68 in cash and deeds to the value of £600, secured upon a farm at Sutton. The interest of this money was payable to an old Jady for her life, and after her death it passed to several persons, both prosecutor and prisoner bhing entitled to a share.

A RISE IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 8 January 1875

A RISE IN THE WORLD. - The exaltation of the members of the Coburg Road Board to the high dignity of councillors, which title they were addressed on Monday evening last, made them appear two or three inches taller as they took their respective seats, and the manner in which the business was conducted during the evening augurs well for the future. A. little merriment was caused during the sitting. The Presi. dent, on putting a motion, saying :--"It is moved by Mr. , seconded by Councillor , that, &c.;" the distinction alluded to did not escape notice, and the'-r. referred to raised his optics, ani peered over the' top of his glasses at Mr. President, but seeing it was an innocent mistake, joined in the general laugh with the rest.

What we want and must have very shortly in Carlton, is a good central post and telegragh office, with a staif of officials competent to cohduct it, and we earnestly invite onr friends in Carlton to cooperate with ns in trying to secure for them this absolute necessity.
