ROAD METAL. [To the Editor of the Free Press.] [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 31 March 1870

ROAID ME lAL. [Po the Editor of the Free Press.] Sir,-In the interest of the public will you kindly allow me to draw your attention to the metal which is now being supplied for contracts connected with the local boards of the district. This metal is of so large a des.ription that it can keep no hol] on the roads, or cement together as it ought to. Besidcs, for people or carriers who have to pay toll for every four miles of rosd which they trarl over, this kirnd of road food, or metal, is intolerahle. With whom then, may I ask, does the fault liy ? IT it with the local bodier, their servants, or tt:e contractors? It with the two latter, our local representatives should call them to an account, and see that nothiln but proper metal should be suppliedl for our money. I am constrained to bring this matter before the public in order that those heaps of metal which are now broken on the roadsides tray not be spread before they are properly examined. Yours truly, A RATEPAYER. Willowmavin, ...

An old man named Nelson was the viotiii- of a very savage assault at Mryhborough the other day: Jeto Advertiser eeys "that Nelson was in a very befuddled state, and seeing a horse belonging to a man namid M'Euerny in the street, he led it away apparent!v without any reason for so doing. M'En erny, who was mush the worse for drink, pursued Nelson and caught'him, when he attacked him in the iraet brutal manner, sod, but for the interference of some spectators, Nelson might have been kicked to death. As it was he was taken away with two or three of his ribs staved in, a severe cut on the right and'a contusion on the left sides of his forehead, besides, being otherwise injured.

PUBLISHED THauBDAY MoRNING. THURSDAY, MARiO 31, 1870 THE fate of the Macpherson Adminis tration is sealed, and though its life was short it could not be said to have been a merry one, as the Opposition were never slow to render their pcsition as irk, some as possible, and never failed, with becoming greed, to grasp at the crumbs of office. This vote of want of confidence in the Macpherson Ministry, which was carried in the Assembly on Tuesday night by a majority of 34 to 26, only serves to convince us all the more of the fact that honorable members bestow more time and attention in striving to secure the gain of office thanin endeavoring to promote useful legislation for the country.. We never gave the Ministry a cordial support-indeed any support we extended them was with a view of breaking up the combination that existed when they took office--but we *a)re now of opinion that they stand very favori ably with the country, and that they need not much dread a dissolution,.which they ...

THE TEMPERANCE SOCIETY'S DEPUTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 31 March 1870

THE TEMPERANCE SOCIETY'S D1i'UTATION. ---o On Thursday last (s?ys the Herald) a large and influential deputation from the Melbour'e Temperance Society waited uponi the Chief Secretary to urge' on him the necessity of certain urgent"reformnis ?'tb6e existing liquor laws. The Rev. AL. H, $echer first addressed M?r ,Macpherson on tfe necessity of a more systemi'tic and gcneo raI enforcement of the clause of t he'present licensing act raferring to Sunday' trading. This clause, he pointed out, was systemati: cally violated by the publicans, and that in very many pl 'es by far the largest amount of traffic was .arried on on that day. An instance of t?.; would be found both at St. Kilda and .!righton, where the Sunday traffic, in some cases, exceeded that of all the rest of the week The powers conferred by t' e act were, he thought, sufficient to enable the police to put down this pernicious praci tice, provided that the clause he had raferred to was only properly administered.

KILMORE ANNUAL RACES. The K:lmore Annual Races commence d yesterday, and tot weather, which appeared very threa'eni.g during the morning, a strong mist falling, cleared up about ten o'clock, and set in very fine.

RUN WILD. (From the Atlantic Monthly.) Here was the gate. The broken paling, As if before the wind, inclines; The pest half rotted, and the pickets, failing,. Ield only up by vines. The plum-trees stand, though gnarled and speckled, With lepro.3y of old disease; By cells of wormy life the trunks_ are freckled, And moss enfolds their knees. I push aside the bows, and enter; Alas! the garden's nymph has fled, With every charm that leaf and blossom lent her, And left a hag instead. Some female satyr from the thicket, Child of the bramble and the weed, Sprang shouting over the unguarded wicket With all her savage breed, She banished hence the ordered graces, That smoothed a way for Beauty's feet, And gave her ugliest imps the vacant places, To spoil what once was sweet. Here, under rankled mulleins, dwindle The borders, hidden long ago; Here shoots the dock in many a rusty spindle, And purslane creeps below. The thyme runs wild, and vainly sweetens, Hid from its bees, the conquering gra...

At the meeting of Parliament on Tuesday, no political statement was made. It was known that Mr Macgregor had failed in forming an Administral tion, and thbt Mr M Oulloch had been sent for. Beyond this no'hing was stated. Under the ciram., stancer, the Assembly. cn the motion of Mr Mac pherson, who acted at the rfquest of Mr M'Cullorh, adjourned until Thursday. It was generally under stood on Tuesday that Messrs Franois, Wrixon, and Casey had contented to aot with Mr M'Oalloch, the former us Treasurer and the two latter as law offilers. Even this, however, is not definitely settled, and it is still within the bounds of probabilite that some disturbine element may arise to negative the arrange ment.
