THE NEW YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 31 December 1869
THE NEW YEAR. - OLD Father Christmas has taken his de- parture. The conventional roast beef and plum pudding have been duly eaten, and now that New Year's Day is upon us what remains for both old and young but rise up and play? A word to both; whilst freely using' do not abuse the privilege. Millions of christians in all parts of the world worship at the shrine of "Old &nbsp; Christmas," but few peoples can carry on their devotions so favorable as our own, whether of climate, social, religious, or political. Here every man can in the literal sense worship God under his own vine and fig tree, none daring to make him afraid. Let us hope that every colo- nist carries with him a due sense of his responsibilities as well as privileges, and remember in the midst of all our abund- ance, there are some poor brothers whom age, accident, improvidence, or misfortune has reduced to povcrty, and that their claims must not be neglected. The Founder of our common christianity came to estab...
NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 31 December 1869
NOTES AND EVENTS. The old man named James Brady, men- tioned in our last as having stolen a cheque from a man at Ondit, was bought up to- day, and sentenced, to six months impri- sonment with hard labor. He caused some amusement after the hearing of the evid- ence. When asked if he wished to be &nbsp; dealt with by the Bench or go before a jury, he decided on the former, but pleaded not guilty, and "knew no more about it than the child unborn." He was then told he would have to be committed for trial, when he naively remarked, "then make me guilty, and let us have it over!" The question was again put him, and he pleaded guilty, amid the laughter of the Court. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Hamilton Free Press has expired after a career extending over eight years. The final number was issued on Friday last. No particular cause is assigned for its discontinuance but it is presumed that it had ceased to pay. As a set off to this blank in Western Journalism we ...
COLAC POLICE COURT. This Day—Friday [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 31 December 1869
COLAC POLICE COURT. This Day—Friday James Brady was charged with stealing a purse containing a cheque for £16 8s 11d, two £1 notes, and some silver from James Sherlock. Plea not guilty. (Before C. Beal, Esq., J.P.; J. Robertson, Esq., J.P.; and T. Rae, Esq., J.P.) &nbsp; James Sherlock, prosecutor, deposed: I am a laborer residing at Ondit. On the night of the 27th I was at the Ondit Ho- tel, and fell asleep in the dining room about four o-clock nexst moring. About 7 o'clock, I awoke and went into the bar, where I missed my purse containing the money. The cheque produced is the one stolen. I indentify the purse and cheque but not the notes. I had the money be- tween 12 and 1 o'clock. I made enquiries and found the cheque had been cashed by Mr Quinane, of Ondit. Mirs Quinane told me she got it from the prisoner, who was present in the bar. Mr Mechan then went for the police and prisoner was arrested. To the Bench : I was sober when I went to sleep. I am not aware that anyone ...
BERLIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 31 December 1869
BERLIN.—A 17oz. nugget was brought in to Inglewood from Tyler on Tuesday, and &nbsp; sold at the Bank of Victoria, by the wife of a puddler, who had picked it up after it had been pitched out of machine in clearing out the rough stuff. She happened to be pass- ing at the time it was thrown out, it being then in appearance nothing but a ball of blue clay, and catching a slight glimmer of metal she took it up and washed it, when it as- sumed the form of a nugget.—Inglewoed Ad- vertiser. The rivers are said to be falling very rapidly. The Murray is now down to 4 feet above summer level, and the Campaspe is fast becoming a black unsightly ditch. A young man named Ray was recently brought into Wagga Wagga suffering from animal poisoning. He had been travelling from with sheep, but they were not diseased ; it is therefore conjectured that a fly from some diseased animal must have settled upon an abrasion of the skin upon his hand, and thus conveyed the deadly virus of animal poiso...
