Cricket. HOTHAM v. FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 22 January 1875
Cricket. Br LoNo SLIP. IIOTUAM V. FITZBOT. On the 9th and 16th of this month, the 1st eleven of the Hotham were engaged with the 1st eleven of the Fitzroy. Un. fortunately, there was not sufficient time for the match to be played out, and a draw much in favor of the Hotham was the result. I promised to give a full account of the match, but unfortunately the very hot weather we are troubled with just now, upsets my equilibrium and I. will eot rid of the matter in as few words as possible. The principal features in the game were the excellent scores obtained by Collie in both innings for the Hotham, and Kennedy and Downing in the first innings of the Fitzroy, the excellent I wicket keeping of McLean, and the bowl ing of Hastings and Paterson for the Hothamites. The fielding of the Hotham was not up to mark only two or three of the team fielding in anything like a decent manner. Hotham-1st innings,115; 2nd inniags, 101; total 216. Fitzroy-lat innings, 94; 2nd innings, 51; total 1460. T...
AN ERROR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 22 January 1875
AN ERROL In our last issue an error occurred in the report of the Hotbam Police Court. It was a case in which Elizabeth Abern charged Michael M'Sweeny with making use of indecent and violent language, for which he was fined 10s. and 10e. 6d. costs. Uhfor| tanately by a typographical error the parties were reversed and it read as if Elizabeth Ahern was the defendant, whereas she was the complainant, whereas she was the complainant in the case. We regret the error and heaten to crrcct it.
THE SYDNEY ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 22 January 1875
THIE SYDNEY ROAD. At the last sitting of the Brunswick Council, a letter was received from the Town Clerk of Coburg stating that that body declined to meet and confer with the bodies interested in the drainage of the Sydney Road being made a primary charge upon the Toll Fund, and inti mated that it was the intention of the Coburg Council to protest against such a course being adopted. Now, as the proposed conference between the City Council and the municipal authorities of Brunswick and Coburg was to consider and deal with other important business connected with the Sydney Road Toll, it seems barely courteous in the Coburg Council declining to be present. It may hold strong and decided views on the question of making the drainage of the road the first charge of the toll, still the proper and legitimate place to enunciate and support such views is at such a meeting as the one proposed. The ques. tions proposed to be considered were fourfold; firstly the re-distribution of the toll; s...

RELIGIOUS SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 22 January 1875
RELIGIOUS SERVICES. The Independents or Congregationlists as they are indifferently termed, are pro minent among the sects for their liberality of thought, and the cultivation of an intelligent faith in the great christian verities. We are glad, therefore, to per ceive that an attempt has been made by the Congregational Union to provide religious services for the benefit of those members of the denomination resident in IHotham who have hitherto bad to journey long distances to attend the ministrations they prefe;. .or the presentthe meetings Ss..b held in the Temperance Hall, Queensberry street, which is admirably adapted for the purpose both as regards position and seating capacity. The Rev A. Gosman, of St. liilda, conducted the services last Sunday evening, and preaehed a most thoughtful and original diseourse on the interview between Nicodemua and Christ.

THILEE YEARS ON THE AUSTRA LIAN STAGE. SY FIRST PROFESSIONAL JOURNEY rFoIn ]IOME.-OFF TO SANDIIURST. TnE news of the burning of the theatre' was hailed by my friends and those who took an interest in mo with something approaching thankfulness, for they were now convinced I would adopt commercial pursuits again. Not so; I was determined to have another tug at the heart strings of my nearest and dearest friends. Of the excitement and the crowds of people that flocked to the ruins of the theatre nearly every one knows. Inside the walls were actors turning over the debiris with the hope of finding some unconsumablo portion of their wardrobe. Here and there a familiar buckloor sword, now much charred, would be found. Actresses in tears, with good excuse for being so, notably the loading lady, for instance, who had lost among other pro perty, presents bearing far more than their intrinsic value. The manager on this occasion, every one must admit, acted with great personal disinterestednes...
THE CHARITABLE INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 22 January 1875
THE CHARITABLE INSTITU TION. The hearts of the Treasurers of the various charitable institutions of Mfel bourne will rejoice at the munificent do nation of £20 from the Shire Council of Coburg, to be distributed amongst them. There are the Melbourne, the Alfred, the Homeopathic, and the Eye and Ear Hos pitals, the ]4enevolent Asylum, the Blind and the Deaf and Dumb Asylums, the Immigrants' home, the Ladies' Ben evolent Asylum and one or two other charitable institutions, which will benefit by this gift, which will bring the donation to about 85s. all round i Now the Coburg Shire Council might with. out any injustice to the ratepayers, have made their gift £4~0 or E£4?i which would have given about .£4 a-piece to the charities we have mentioned and that would be little enough for a shire council near Melbourne and holding the position which the BShre Council of Coburg undoutedly does.

Tales, Sketches, &c. ds HOW SUE'S YOUNG MAN 1i PROPOSED. Wt Who knows anything about Sue? No *, body of course, for she-is a very humble, obscure piece of humanity who never obtrudes herself on the world, but in her own quiet way fulfils her mission in life as bravely and dutifully as the most renowned warrior that ever mounted war s horse to go forth mid "the pomp and circumstance of war," to triumph over his country's foes, or die a patriot s death; Heroes of this kind have had their deeds v of daring chronicled, and the world, o while it holds its breath with marvel and admiration while contemplating their gal. lant deeds, often weeps at the fate of those e who have fallen in battle when on the v threshold of glory. But there are many r other people, wit? souis as heroic, who do e their part in life dutifully and staunchly, f and yet no one hears anything about it, ,, for they do it in a quiet unobtrusive d manner without that halo of display t, surrounding their deeds wh...
