POETRY. LINES TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 27 June 1876

POETRY. LINES TO AUSTRALIA. Away from tile world, far out il the ocean, Went sailing a imarriner gallaut and brave, To seek for a treasure of which he'd a notion, Lay hidden remote in the Southerr wave. And as he expected, a land lie discovered, For richness and grandeur surpassing the best; 'Twas Australia, o'er fairer sunbetams ne'er hovered, More emerald than that far away in the west. Sublime is the aspect when Sol is ascending To spread his fair beams o'er thy bosom of gold, To burnish thy rivers that onward are wending Their way to the ocean through valleys untold. How lovely to gaze just before evening closes, Upon thy gay woodlands all glowing with flowers, W\rhose perfume does vie with the sweetest of roses, When mixed the fragrance diffused from thy bowers. A very few srmmers and thou wert ulnknown To man, who inhabits thee now in all parts; But since then thy importance has daily been growing In science, in wealth, agriculture, and arts. T. J. G.

TO THE RATEPAYERS IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT or THE CORAN CAMITE RIDING, SHIRE or COLAC. LADIEs AND GENTLEMENS, Having allowed myself to be placed in nomination a?p Candidate for a seat in the Board of A for the above School Dis trict, I take this opportunity of making a few remarks in connection with the matter. The question of Education is one of a very important nature, and the proper working of the Education Act is a subject worthy of the utmost attention. The present Educa. tion Act can only at present be considered in the light of an experiment which has not had a fair trial, owing to defectiveness in the machinery provided for carrying it out, therefore it must not be condemned until a larger experience shall warrant such a course. The compulsory clanse have been found unworkable owing to many difficulties connected withThem. It :i probable that the Government will, during the-comina session of Parliament, introduce-anamed Education Act, which'will eitheriemedy or do away with th...

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 27 June 1876

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. The Age reports :-Business in the import markets this morning was of the limited nature usual on the closing day of the week. Best milling wheat was quoted to-day at 5s. lid. to 6s., bags included ; and fair samples at a range of about a penny lower. Country flour is worth £12 7s. 6d. to £12 10s. Owing to the excessive .competition prevailing amongst city millers, the aggregate mill power of Melbourne mills being sutficient for the supply of the entire colony, prices have not settled down, and the somewhat wide range of £12 10s. to £13 comprises the quo tations given us. In feeding corn, business in oats does not proceed freely, buyers' and sellers' views as yet differing too widely; with such a large quantity of grain, however, landing upon our exposed wharves, some conclusion must shortly be arrived at; it would appear probable that the reluctance of the trade to operate may necessitate storage to a considerable extent.
