We have pleasure in giving it to our readers in our presenut issue.] MainoCriST., Wednesday, Aug. 29. Tunr Gas question is settled. A due proportion of the component parts? of Melbourne and Colling. wood have mingled without explosion, and the result is-" Gas supplied at eloven shillings per thousand feet." Ever and anon there are rumours of another company being started; it being pro. posed to erect the works on the vacant ground lying between Emerald Hilland Sandridge. There seems to be scope for it, especially as the popula tion is rapidly extending in the direction referred to. Has the Bazaar mania reached Bacchus Marsh ? Melbourne and its suburbs are fairly under its influence at present. The Melbourne Hospital requires increased accommodation, and so '" the ladies to the rescue I" is the cry.

SATURDA SEPTEMBEiR 8, 1866. Tnn interest ni ifested in the recent election of two member for the Bacchuis Marsh and MIaddingley lad Board, seems to indicate that the rate yvers have shaken off that apathetic indif renco to matters affecting their interests whiclfo r a lung time oxisted. The progress of tht district undoubtedly depends, in a ;great mjsure, on the shrewdness and nactivity of th gentlemen having seats at the Board; and as a community, we are to benefit as mt h as possible by the Local Government At, it behoves us to watch nar rowly the pro edings of' our representatives there.: Severalimportannt questions at present occupy the att etion of the ratepayers, fore most among wh4h is the expediency of having the district prol med a shire. The advantages which would be derived from this step are suchl as to warraI the Board in using every legitimate endeaour to calry it into effect.

MISCELLANEOUS. WATErWORx8 IN RIVaRINA,-Operations for pre serving water are going on in all parts of Riverina and on its borders, as the boundary of the quasi. province, has not been marked out. Foremost among these are the Yanko cutting of several miles in length; Desailly's Willandra outting, about eight miles; and Tyson's cutting, about sir miles in length. Storage of water is going on, on a himundred stations or more at the same time. Water is the life's blood of Riverina, and the time will soon arrive, we should hope, when every nook and corner will be made available; but many hundreds of thousands of pounds-nay;,millions will have to be spent to achieve this object. The last groat work is thus given by a correspondent of the Dubbo Dispatch, and speaks well for the enterprise of Messrs. Ryrie and Alexander, an enterprising firm well known in the pastoral circles of New South Wales. The chief of their stations are as follows.:-Wanbobbie, Gunningbar (Taro. able), Novortire, Boro,...

BACCHUS MARSH COMMON SCHOOL. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 September 1866
BACCIIUS MASHII COMMON SCHOOL. lTo the Jditor qf thi Epress. Sin-Seeing in your last issue a full report of the Committee meeting of the Common School, at which all its affairs were brought up and discussed, I hope you will allow me at smell space in your widely-circulated paper of this week to make a few remarks with reference to a matter of public importance. I visited the Roman Catholio Chapel on the occasion of our last Sunday service, and it was gratifying to hear the just reprimand which the Rev. Father O'Connoll gave his flock in con sequence of the interference of come of them in debates of the School affairs between the Presby terians and Church of England people. HIe gave thoem a caution which they won't soon forget, as the action they took in the matter was unprin cipled and cowardly; although, certainly, they were few in number and of the less'intelligent class. Too much praiso cannot be given to the reverend gentleman for the proper and efllcient manner in which he has ...

As one who o >ohnuch trouble and intereut in the formation s tlo ]lallan Society, I feel assured that you will tallor me space to have my say thereon. Ix my letter on amalgamation published in the iuo(,dian some months ago, I maintained that a?n aimalgaumatibon of the Societies was only desirable where it could be distinctly proved that by such anl arrangement mutual benefits would accrue that could not be attained under a separate existence. It is to this point that the attention of the repre sontatives should be specially directed when in conference, It is quite a mistaken notion, sir, to imagino that "union is strength" under all circumstances, There are time...

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 September 1866
BALLAN. (ROM1 OUR SPEOCIA COREBSrONDENT.) WarT might be done for Dallan P is a question that has long occupiod my attention ; and I have lost no opportunity, whenever it presented itself, of pointing out what Ballan is and what Ballan might bIo, under a wise and active exertion on the part of the residents of the township, and through out the wide.extending Shiro. But it must be admitted that Ballan is a peculiar placeo, and has a peculiar people, with an old-fashioned sot of very peooliar idoeas, which appear to form a kind of social conglomeration, overlying its rich deposit of golden adrvantages. One would imagine that Ballan had mado up her mind not to " move on," but sternly to have set her face against all reform. This is attributable, in a great measuro, to the fact that we have no publio spirit among us to take the lead ; whilst one or two, who onco essayed in the unthankful work of public advocacy, soon got disgusted, and instead of holding firmly on to the plough of reform...
