The South Bourke Standard. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 27 February 1863

S jtc @out1j 3ou1tfitR ctilnult'O. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27Th, 1803. Wuo shall limit the liberties of the "privi leged ogentlemen" within the walls of the Assembly, for outside that hallowed circle it its still not very dillicult to punish an in. friigencunt ol the rules of civilized society, nudl for serious offbnces there is always the convenient dernier resort to the law of the laud. But supposing it possible that one of these illustrious individuals, selected for their pre-eminent moral and intellectual gifts to coinstitite the highest Assembly in the 81:ate, sbould so far forget himself as to exhibit a demeanour which, among ordinary mortals, would be considered grossly outrageous, is * there any penalty adequate for so grave an S'fence, and who is the fittest authority to censure and condemn? Of course it is merely a flight of the imagination to suggest that such an exhibition could take place within our colodnial Parliament; yet it will be admitted that even among our honourable m...

RAILWAY INCIVILITY AND OVERCHARGE. To the Editor of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 6 March 1863

RAILWAY INCIVILITY: AND OVE1-. C. HARGE, ,. b o tha.Edito~of.MCh Statidard. SSIR,-This afternoon, travelling from Mel bourne, I was much?annoyed at the conduct of an official on the -Melbourne Railway to wards a Chinaman. John' had ensconced hlihself in a second-class" :ciriag' witlitvwo baskets cobiiainii?g ricewliheii the porter de manded of John it he had a parcels ticket as well as a passenger ticket.' Thl reply beign in the negative, tho parcels were bundled out of the carriage, and John with theii. Upon meekly reinonstrating, John was told to pay one shilling, and he might then proceed. Ifav ing paid the money, he was llowed to re-take his seat.'. Now, this conduct 'was not very fair to wards any one, especially to a foreigner ; and I must say that many parcels are carried by railway passengers nearly as large as the Chinaman's, and for which they do not pay anything. The charge: certainly seemed to ie to b.an overcharge, and out of all fair proportion. Hoping this may ensure ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 6 March 1863

AWhile the heroes of the stump have been declaring that there is no chance of the es tablishment of a cloth manufactory in Victo ria without protection, tho.private enterprise of oneo man has already led the way, and sa tisfactorily proved what can be done. 'We yesterday inspected, in the shop of Mr: R. IL. Cooling, tailor, of Bourko-street, a roll of handsome tweed cloth, not to be distinguished from a piece of the best English manulfacture, of the newest pattern. This was manufac tured in Richmond,:by a Mr. May, and, we believe, maytake rank as the first pieco of cloth yet mado.in Victoria. It was produced at a haud-loom, under great disadvantages, owing to the wiant of what is technically know as a "scribbling machine" for the manufac ture of yarn, and, indeed, from the want ,of proper dyeing materials, he was compelled to use some of English manufacture, which he had brought out with him. Under these cir cumstances, of course, the article has iot been produced at a price suitabl...

FRIDAY, MAI I-I r, 183. Ir is with some degreo.'of ,sturprise thlst we see a notice of motion on the business paper of the Hawthorni Council, to be discussed next Monday night, proposing to alter the :node of paynlent to the Surveyor from a fixed salary to a per centage upon the atmount ex= ponded under his supervision.: Only teni months have elapsed since the subject, was before the Council, and it was' then hoped that the mui;ter was definitively settled; but now. theoold ground has to be gono over again, and we may expect to hear the old arguminnts also. There may be advantages in the system of paying a Surveyor a per ceotage upon the works carried out under his supervision, but it is also opento. verysriolup objections. The interests 'of the Gouncil and the Surveyo/' wvoull be dinmietrically opposed to each other.

The Surveyor begged to re mind the admirer of 6hambers' nformatlion for the People that the present system of pitching was considered an improvement on the old IMacadamisod one, and that although very willing to receive instruction from any peirson, he certainly could not think of re ferring to Chambers' Information for the People, as i guide to his profession!
