THE "NELSON." [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 February 1868
THE " 1NELSON." IT will be remembered that the visit of the lion. Mr. Verdon, O.B., to England was under taken-principally with the object of obtaining1 from the IHome Government some provision for the defence of Port Phillip, and that lie was successful in obtaining the present to the colony of a large line-of-battle ship, con ditionally upon the Victorians maintaining it in a state of efficiency. The vessel has now arrived, and we take the following remarks in connection with it, from the Ago :-Hobson's Bay can now boast of hIavinn' a permanently stationed man-of-war, the " oelson" 72-gun line-of-battle ship, 27860 tons, 500 horse power having arrived on Tuesday ; her appearance is very formidable, she having a double row of ports, in all seventy-two, therefore no mean antagonist, if occasion should require any de parture from her peaceful mission, that of a naval training ship, into an opposing force against a foe. The vessel is in such excellent order as to reflect groat credit ...

BALLARAT MARKET. MESSRn. HEPBURN AND LEONARD report, 5th Fobruary :-The stock yarded were 392 cattle, 72 calves, 7109 sheep and 1518 lambs. Fat Cattle: Supply was a moderate one in point of numbers, yet was fully ample for requirements. Quality ranged from medium to prime. The general tone of the market is easier, still but little alteration can be made in quotations, best beef making 20s. per 100 Ibs.e Our sales were-111 head, good and medium quality, mixed sexes, at £6 4s. all round; and 07ghead, at from £4 15s. to £9. Fat Calves: A large number to hand, with prices somewhat lower than of late. Best made 41s., medium and inferior from U1s. to 25s. Fat Sheep: The sheep market was again this week fully supplied; trans actions were consequently oharacterised by a great lack of animation, and were it not for the presence of graziers, who purchased a fair number, matters would have boon still much worse. Quotations: Best wethers, say 55 weights, es. Od. to 6s. Od.; medium ditto, 4s. Gd...
ORIGINAL POETRY. STRAY THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 February 1868
S ORIGINAL POETRY. S STRAY THIOUGIITS 'Tie?often I think of my native home, And of scones all pleasant and gay, When paddling in streams and roaming in glons, And seeking fresh pleasures each day. HIow oft I have chased the gay buttorflies, Day after day, from flower to flower; Their gaudy colours (lid me so enchant, So passed away the happy hour. The little birds, too, I have often chased, And tried their cozy nests to find, Forgetful of their tender cares, While trying some pleasure to find. No thought nor care o'orshadowcd my brow, Of this world's cares I had nonoe; My thoughts were light as the roo on the hills, When he roams and pastures alone. But as years rolled on my liberty fled, I found I was horn to toil; Yet I never murmured, but laboured away, Happy on my native soil. Though of hunmlle birth, and born 'midst poverty, Thero's many men by honost toil Have conquered poverty, and raised a home Upon Australia's virgln soil. eot us over praise the Almighty God, For on Him dep...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 February 1868
THE present unsettled condition of public affairs is very detrimental to the progress of the colony, and we fear that when Parliament meets it will be in no humour to turn its attention to questions of general policy. Independent of the DARLING grant, there is abundant material for discussion in the matter of finance generally. There is not much doubt about an increase of taxation being necessary. This has all along been anticipated by the Ministry, and particularly by Mr. HIOINBOTIHAM; for in one of his election speeches at Brighton some time ago, he stated it to be his conviction that an increase of taxation would have to be sub mitted to by the colonists. This increase of taxes will, of course, be looked upon by the Opposition party as brought about by the operation of the present tariff-every pos sible evil flows from that, and the actions of the M'OvULLoo Ministry generally. We believe, however, that it will be conclusively proved, when the proper time comes, that the present t...
