THE NIGHT SOIL NUISANCE. Inspector of the Shire of Jika Jika v. William Warr. -At the Fitzroy Police Court, on Thursday last, Mr. Edwards, junr., for the prosecution, the above case was resumed, when Mr. Edwards, addressing the bench, said--This case had been ad- journed for the production of the minute book of the Jika Jika Shire Council, and the learned gentleman invited their worships' attention to the facts proved. It was in evidence that defendant had obtained permission from the Jika Council to have night soil deposited on his premises for one month, and he now contended that such consent extended from March 1st to April 1st whereas the present offence was committed on the 9th of April, and he considered that the bench ought to make a distinction between defendant, as proprietor of the ground where the night soil had been deposited, and those persons who carted the stuff. An order had been given him on March 1st, but for one month only, and he was now charged with exceeding th...

LAY HELP IN THE ENGLISH CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 24 April 1875

LAY HELP IN THE ENGLISH CHURCH. SINCE the abolition of State and, the   question of lay help has frequently been discussed by both clergy and laity; Bishp of Melbourne stated     publicly, in almost his last speech in the Colony, that under present circum-   stances if they wished the Church to   maintain its stand, the clergy must avail themselves of the aid of the laity   to a greater extent than they hitherto   had done." And with this view it   appears his lordship had called into existence a body of honorary "lay-   helpers" who have "authority given   unto them," in documents issued from   Bishop's registry, of which the follow- ing is a copy:--"In compliance with the request of the Rev.---, and in the confidence that you are duly qualified by character and education, I do hereby authorize you from time to time, so long as this authorit...

CORRESPONDENCE. YWe do not necossarily ondorso the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE MERCIWUY. Sir-Our present financial condition is, and not unreasonably, exciting considerable alarm; and' thoughtful men in the more industrious spheres of society, are begin ning to scrutinize the. fiscal policy of government. The revenue is decreasing, while our public expenditure remains undiminished. A largo section of the community have become enamoured of protection, probably more from the talis manic charm of the nomenclature, than from any intelligible or definite compro hension of its inherent principles. For some time past, the tariff of this colony has boon adjusted upon a Protective standard, which it has been the interest, or caprice of certain leaders of public opinion to countenance and extol. The artisan and labouring classes have suffered themselves, in this instance, to. be led captive by specious and plausible sophistry, without incurring the trouble or pains o...

SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1875. THE NIGHT-SOIL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 1 May 1875

SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1875. TH-E NIGHT-SOIL QUESTION. IT is all very',line for certain persons to turn up their sensitive organs of smell, whenever the night-soil difficulty is under discussion, but sanatory interests are so deeply involved in the question as to invest it with exceptionalimpor. tance; and a recent trial in the Supreme court furnishes us with some extra ordinary revelations on the subject. EDWARD KINSELLA, JOHN RAIN, and ALFRED KwINsroRD were recently indicted by the Crown for having created a nuisance, and polluted the Yarra, with night-soil. The prosecution was mainly sus tained by the evidence of JonN KINo Don, formerly a nightman in the 'employ. of WILLtAMI HUMPHRIsS, itlso ii the samel linoeof busineis; aind this witness, deposed to sundry occurrences in KIN?szLLA'S garden which are almost incredible; for, he has sworn that he saw as many as eloven loads of night soil shot into the tipping.place, and convoyed thence, by an artificial drain, or race, direct into the w...
