NORTH MELBOURNE V. UNIVERSITY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
NORThC MELBOURNE V. UNIVbRmSITY. The second twenties of the above mot in the Royal Park on Saturday afternoon last for the first time to try conclusions. In consequence of the North Melbourno and Carlton first twenties being absent, and the inclement weather which pro vailed, there were very few spectators present to witness the contest. On reach ag, the ground it was found that in stead of the North Melbourne team having a set of youths to play against they would have to try their hand z.gainst men. A start was soon effected. Patterson (the captain of the North Melbourne team) having won the toss, decided to play from west to east for the first half, taking advantage of what little wind there was blowing. The game having been started the University men soon rushed the ball behind the goal posts of the Ndrth Melbourne. In fact, until after the first half, the game was altogether one sided, in consequence of the splendid play on the part of Hoearn, Blair, and Chirns side, who materia...

AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. WEDNESDAY, 3RD SEPTEMBER. THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The country will be far from being satisfied with the proposed line of con duct laid down by Mr. Francis as the course the Ministry intend to adopt in dealing with the conduct of the Legisla tive Council in their treatment of the new Electoral Bill. In fact, since Sir James aMcCulloch retired from office, we have had no premier who cared or dared to attempt solvring the great political problem of working the two legislative bodies lhar moniously. If the Ministry, instead of humbling the country by instructing their representative in the Upper House to move that the bill be again placed on the notice paper, had accepted the responsi bilities of the position, reo.introduced the bill and again sent it up to the Council, they would have earned the applause of all who desire to see representative go vernment flourish. That the country must prepare itself for a final conflict between the two houses is the feeling uni...

HOTHAM SCHOOL OF DESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 3 September 1873
HOTHA1i: SCHOOL OF DESIGN. It is rumored that an effort is about being made to establish aSchoolof Design in thl Borough of I"otham. Tile movers in thoe matter are anxious to establish it on a firm basis, and propose that the commit tee of management shall be composed principally of working men. They. do not by this desire to exclude any person from taking an interest in its welfare, but they wish the practical element to prevail in. its management. Experience has shown that where the latter has had the supervision of schools success has invari ably been the result, while failure has as certainly attended the efforts of merely well meaning theorists. -
