ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "FREE PRESS." [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 30 March 1865
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE " FREE PRESS." Si,-$ -- not the Melbourne Acdlm-ati Slla,--Is not the Melbourne Aicclimatisi tion Society considered to be a national in stitution for national purposes ? If it is, then, is it not the duty of the various muni cipal bodies throughout the colony to co operate with it, not only in preserving the rare and useful birds, beasts, and fishes of the colony as well as in the endeavour to acclimatise others ? I aak the auestion because I wish to know if our Municipal Council recognise their obligation to preserve some of the beautiful aquatic birds that sometimes settle on our small reservoir, but which are immediately ruthlessly shot ? especially the rare and beautiful black swan. Should we not consider the Borough Council as the custodians of these ? Yours, &c., AVIS.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 30 March 1865
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. OUSEiLVEs.-Our contemporary the "Ex aminer," in its issue of Friday last, points out a mistake made by us in not announcing by placard or otherwise the publication of the first number of this journal. We admit the " soft. impeachment," and only hope that the sudden appearance of the " Kilmore Free Press" has not given a shock to the nerves of any of our townsmen, or if it has we trust they will soon recover its effects. FATAL AccIDE?T.--A sad accident befel a child, seven years old, named Thomas Coubrough, at the Albion mill, New Town ship, on the night of Tuesday last. It is' supposed that the boy went into the mill in search for his father, who works there, fell asleep on the wheat in the large bin, and was drawn downwards while the wheat was being drawn off. Theboy'sbodywasnot recovered until Wednesday forenoon, when it was found at the bottom of the wheat bin quite dead. Great sympathy is felt for the afflicted parents. At the inquest held by Dr Nicol. son, c...

NARROW ESCAPE FROM DEATH BY FOUL AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 6 April 1865
NAnnow EsCIPE raOM IDEATIT BT FOUL Ain.-Of late the air has been so bad in the workings of the Great Central Company that they have been obliged to keep a fire lighted in the air shaft. On Monday morn ing, the first shift, before going down, did not take the precaution to ascertain if the fire was burning properly. If they had done so, they must have discovered that the timbers of the shaft had taken fire, and the life of the men would not have been placed in im mnment peril. As the timbers burned, some earth fell into the shaft and choked it. The consequence was that a man named Griffiths, working at the face of the main drive, was nearly suffocated by foul air. t, When brought to the surface he was mut, and a delay of a few minutes would have proved fatal."-"Daylesford Express," March 30th. A SON HAInOFD BY HIS FATHER. The Court of Assizes of the Manche has just tried a man named Bouvet, a small farmer, residing at Coulouvrav-Bois Benatre on a charge of having, onthe iSth July la ...
EXTRAORDINARY SWINDLING AT SHREWSBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 6 April 1865
EXTRAORDINARY SWINDLING AT SHREWSBURY. --o-- -0- (FnIO TUE MORNING STAB.) Mr. Charles Ashworth, a gentleman whose family hold a prominent and influential position in the north of England, being on his way to visit a relative in Shropshire, stopped for. a night at Shrewsbury, and put up at the Raven Hotel. We know not whether, while he slept the sleep of innocence his pillow was disturbed by visions of impending dire disaster, but fate had a terrible rod in pickle for him, and its application was not long delayed. At ten o'clock next morning, probably when he was indulging in those pleasant musings which naturally follow in the train of a Com fortable breakfast, there entered to him John Morgan, who straightway introduced himself as a detective policeman from Carmarthen, and told him he had a warrant to apprehend him for stealing in that town, and subsequen tly selling there for £15 a watch and chain. In vain did Mr. Charles Ashworth state his name and acdress, the starting point of ...

MAURITIUS. HURICANE AND GREAT LOSS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 6 April 1865
MAURITIUS. 0o IIURICAxE AND OREAT LOSS OF LIFE. From the " Port Lous Gazette" of 14th February we take the accompanying parti culars ofa most disastrous hurricane, attended with loss of many lives, that occured on the afternoon of the 8th:-"The threatening weather of Saturday evening and Sunday morning, with the gradual falling of the bar. ometer, led us to suppose that a cyclone was approaching us. At 4 o'clock, however, a slight rise in the 'barometer and heavy rain tended to dissipate the. fears entertained. But when we saw with satisfaction that the chances of a hurricane were diminishing, we little thought we were on the eve of an inun dation more sudden and more terrible in its consequences than has ever been witnessed in this colony. We regret to have to record the loss of several lives. As for the property lost ,it was very considerable, consisting prin cipally of goods and shops. The rivulets Pouce and Tonniers, receiving the torrents from the mountains, swelled beyond meas...
