T' o ho .Edilor of the Standard, SIt,-- n my lotter in your issue of the 17th inst.

FIGHT WITH A PANTHER. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 7 June 1861

FIGHT WITH A PANTHER. (From the TWild Sports of India.) Having warned the village shikaree to keep close behind me with the heavy spear he had in Ilis hand, I began to follow the wounded panther ; but had I scarcely gone 25 yards when one of the beaters, who was on high ground, beckoned to me, and pointed a little below him, and in front of me. There was the I large panther sitting unconcealed, between two bushes, a dozen yards before me. I could not, how ever, see hisis his head ; and whilst I was thus delayed he came out with a roar straight at me. I fired at his chest with a ball; and as he sprang upon me, the shot barrel was aimed at his head. In the next moment lie seized my left arm and the gun. Thus, not being able to use the gun as a club, I forced it, crosswise, Into Ihis mouth. lie bit the stock through In one'place ; and whilst his sipper fangs lacerated my arns and hand, .the lower fangs went into the gun. His hind claws pierced my left thigh, lie tried very hard to thro...

GAS FOR HAWTHORN. To the Editor of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 7 June 1861

GAS FOR IIAWTHIO1 N. d ., . To llas Editor of the Standard Sin,-Amongst the many improvements going on in this district, it seems somewhat strange that no public action in tiis mattdr is going forward. The Melbourne Gas Company's mains aroe laid down now within GO yards of the new bridge, and could be carried across the river readily, owing to the facility afforded by the construction of the bridge. Con f sidering ihat it would take two or three months I time to lay the mtains and services-considering, ~ also, that it might be possible on the part of the Company that they had not a suitable stock of mains on hand-much time would necessarily be lost if they have to be imported from Britain. It is surely high time that some of our leading ment, and especially the Municipal Council, should show tile light of their countenances in this matter ; by agitating tihe quelstion and practically influenclig I one or other of the two existing Company's to lay II on a supply at once, In whichl ca...

THE FORTHCOMING EXHIBITION. To the Editor of the South Bourke Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 7 June 1861

TIE FORTHCOMING EXUIBITION. To the Editor of the South Bourhe Standard. Sin,-I have devoted some time, and you have devoted much space, to tle advocacy of the interests of the Great Internationnal Exhibition. When tlhe Commissioners gave an invitation to the public to come forward and aid them in their individual and collective capacity, in making the itudertaking wor thy of their country and tle occasion, the public expected that arrangements would be made for con ducting tlhe preparations for it upon a scale equal to its importance. They also sought the co-operation of the press, knowing, as they said, that much was expected, and that much could be done. What is the result ? An opinion, which is rapidly gaining ground, that the Commissioners have not the power or tie will to avail themselves of the support they have solicited; and that the community, having other and, to them, what they consider mnoro impor tant objects to attend to, leave the issues more to blinhd chance than wis...

' o tlhe Mditor of tho S'talda,d. Sin,-As a contractor and resident of Kew I think it too bad on the part of our Council to put every obstruction in the way of contractors seeing the specifications for works about to be let here. I take it they have no business to drag me to Melbourne to see the specifications, and as to their being seen at the Surveyor's private houso, I have !a vory wholesome dread of going near it, one in the sanmo lino as myself having nnealy got into troublo through going there somo tinoe sinie, it would .bo tfli better to do as they . lid at first--to allow them to lie at Mr. ? Blarnard's for inspection. I amu sure lie 1 would oblige the Council, if only asked, pro viding the l i'own Clerk could not stop in his ollice to show thlem.
