DUTCH ANNA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 July 1877

DUTCH ANNA. It wna shortly after the outbreak of the French Revolution that the humble heroine of this story made her appear ance in my native villago. Dutch Anna (for so she was called by the country people) was, vs the name implies, a native of Holland, and at that time she might be about twenty-five years of age. She was of the middle size, s'ou'ly and firmly built, with a round, good humored thee,, dark hair, clear, honest lookmg hanzel eyes, and a mouth which, though wide, was expre-stvu of decision and tirmnces. Her dress, wlhich neIver varied in style, consisted of a colored petticoat of a thick woollen aterialto , a short bed-gown of striplol cotton, con fined round the waist by the strings of a bnow-white apron ; a close-fitting. modest cap, underneath the pllitd border of which appeared her glossy hair, neattly bIraided over her low broad forehead; add to this it pair of well knit stockings, which the sliortness of her perticoits efforded amtple oplpot tunity of admiring, ...

GOBUR. July 23. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 July 1877

GOBUtR. July 23. Any person visiting Gobur last week and seeing the immense quantity of drapery, ironmongery, and other goods being unloaded at Mr R. Burns's store, must have been favorably impressed with the commercial activity of the placon Mr Burns must be doing a very fair trade, for loads of goods are periodically rolling into his promises. Having started his present business about two years ago, and having adopted the wise plan of selling his goods at the least remunerative rate of profit, Mr Burns now finds himself possessed of a good business and a splendidly stocked store that would compare favorably with any in the Upper Goulburn district. The mechanical arts are well repre sented at Gobur. At the ploughing match on Thursday last, tour ploughs repaired and fitted up expressly for the match by Mr Hamilton, blacksmith, of Gobur, each took a prize. Very little interest as yet is evinced in the coming shire elections. Doubtless more will be shown as the polling day draws near....

BELL-nrE?lo?nl.-The Lynch Family re peated their entertainment on Saturday night last to a large assemblage, when they went through an extensive and exceedingly well drawn up programme. Notwithatanding the great drawback in connection with the acoustic properties of the hall thie bell-ring ing of the brothers wats vociferously lapplauded; many of those present remarking the correct time they kept in the different tunas they rendered. Mr Verten wee one of the featureo of the evening, his comic singing and dancing so pleased the audience that they demanded encores on several occnslons. Tile programme was broulht to a close by the laughable farce entitled "Dr. Brown's disponsary," which completely brought down the house. IT is the fate of great proprietary medicines to be imitated. Shockingly adulterated and pernicious compounds are continually crop ping up, some of them importations, some counterfeits and imitations of home production of the justly-esteemed and long-known medi cated b...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 28 July 1877

MELBOURNE LETTER. -4-·f-- (FRnoa OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The interest connected with politics has been almost equally divided since my last letter between the railway line to Oakleigh and thbo exploits of the Elections and Qualifl cations Committee. This body, being com posed of four Miuisterialists and three Oppo sitionists, has just had the satisfaction of deciding, through the first named majority. that Mr D. M. Davies was not a minister of religion at the time of his nomination, and. therefore, that Ilis election was perfectly valid. Impartial observers find some difliculty in reconciling the decision with the evidence adduced, but then in this case might becomes right, and the majo ity have onceo again adopted " the good old rule, the simple plan, that they shall take who have the power and they shall keep who can." Dr. Macartney's case comes next, and will probably have the same result ; but Mr Levien, who will follow, may not tfare so well. Ilias return is petitioned against ...

LATEST NEWS. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). MELBOURNE, Friday Night. Yesterday, Mr Hunt, the member for Kilmore, and Mr Whitelaw brought the question of suitable public build- ings at Alexandra under the notice of the Minister of Public Works. They represented that the Courthouse was about to be erected, but that other buildings were equally necessary, and had been promised by three separate Administrations. The deputation urged that it was desirable that all the promised buildings should be proceeded with at once. Mr Patterson stated   that he would have all the corres- pondence laid before him, with the view of fulfilling the promises made. The same deputation waited on the Mining Department on the question of mining exemptions, and got a promise that the subject would be immediately dealt with.
