CRICKET. TERANG V. CAMPERDOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 23 January 1877
CRICKET. TERANG v. CAMPERDOWN. The local cricket club sustained their second defeat this season on Saturday last, when an eleven proceedeed by special con veyance to Terang, and played an eleven re presenting that club who succeeded in de feating them by 7 runs. This was brought about by the latter securing the assistance of the Messrs. Crake, who are at present on a to Glenormistou, and visit that of two of the Framlingham aboriginals, viz., Blair and Austin. An early start was made, Terang being first at the wickets, and principally through the good bowling of Bramley they were all disposed of for 69, a very good score considering the wicket the match was played on. Some good cricket was shown by the Messrs. W. and G. Crake, who contributed 15 and 13 respectively, and this no doubt won the match for Terang. The Camperdown visitors could not reach this score by 7 runs -Blair again being the cause. C. Grace succeeded in putting together 31 by careful playing, and was the only one th...
MAHOMMEDANISM V. CHRISITIANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
TIANITY. The following from the London Spectator aptly describes a species with which we are all familiar :-"A kindred cause of English .Mahommedanism comes from deep.seated, subtle, vehement, half-confesed, and often only half-conscious hatred of Christianity. We all know the kind of educated man, who, without openly attacking Christianity, never lets slip a chance of sneering at it; who goes out of his way to recount the atrocities that have been committed in its name; who lumps priests and parsons of all sects under the heading of some contemptu. ons epithet, and who habitually attacks Christianity by praising all other religions. Some men pay tributes of respect to Ma hommed, not because they like him, but because they hate the dominion of the Christian Church. They praise Mahomme danism, and admire the morality of the Koran, for the most transparent of contro versialpurpoes. In the present case, it i enough for them that much has been said about the Christianity of the Bulgaria...
THE SUPPLY OF BUTCHERS MEAT TO MELBOURNE. SATURDAY'S ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
THE arrITP or UIU aWar awsA TO Z/LBOVT . .. SATURDAY'S ARGUS. The supply of our citywith butcber's meat is at present in a quite irregular and ab normal condition., Thereare far more beasts coming in for sale than are required to supply the current demand, and the consequense is that there is a much greater than the usual disparity (always more than can be readily explained) between the wholesale and the retail prices, of animal food in Melbourne. To work of the excessive supply. the Mel bourne Meat-preserving Company has been making extraordinary erertions of late, and its whole manufacturing resources have been in active operation. Working ordi nary hours, it can use up about 10,000 sheep a week, but of late, by working double shifts, it has found a way todo much more than this, and at last week's market the com pany's manager purchased no fewer than 16,000 sheep. Their average price was 4s. lId., and their average weight 421b. They had on them' between three and four months' wool...
A NEW FOOD FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
A NEW FOOD FOR HORSES. A new kind of mash for horses is now coming into use, It is thus described by the California Farmer:- It is composed of two quarts of oats, one of bran, anld half a pint of flax seed. The oats are first placed in the stable bucket, over which is placed the linseed; add boiling water, then the bran, covering the mixture with an old rug, and allowing it thus to rest for five hours; then stir the mass well up. The bran ab sorbs while retaining the vapor, and the linseed binds the oats and bran together; a greater quantity of flax-seed would make the preparation too oily and less relished. One feed per day is sufficient; it is easily digested, and is especially adapted to young animals, adding to their volume rather than to their height, giving substance to the frame. Professor Sanson reminds us not to overlook food, in connection with the ameli. oration of stock. lHe considers oats, so generally given to sheep, as objectionable, and approaching the unprofitable ;...
PROFESSOR PEARSON AND THE FREE TRADE LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
PROFESSOR PEARSON AND THE FREE TRADE LEAGUE. The.lfollowing letter from Professor Pearson, in reply to some remarks on his Emerald Hill lecture dropped at a recent meeting of the Free Trade League, ap pears in the Melbourne morning paper, which he most delights to honor :-" Sir, -On my return yesterday to Victoria, I took up a copy of Wednesday's Argus, and read in it a long report of the discus sion of the council of the Free Trade League. With your permission I will reply.briefly to a portion of the remarks that had special reference to myself. Let me first establish what I actually said in my lecture at Emerald Hill, as reported in the Age. Isaid that I " confessed to legatding the excssive outcry for freetrade as principally the result of a wish to divert public attention from land reform." My views on this subject are absolutely un changed, or strengthened. When I see the Freetraders unable to hold a respect able public meeting; when I find them accepting the advocacy of one-wh...
THE SKIPTON COAL DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
4TH SflMUMV COA1X; DJWZBYII. -- - The following report by Mr. nnKrause, geological surveyor, on the alleged dis covery of coal at Skipton, has been ire ceived by the Minister of Mines: The country aroundSkiption is occupied by upper vblcahic lais, resting ptbably upon older paleozoic rocks; and outctop of which occurs within a feki huindred yards from the township reserve. About three and a half miles further east, and thence to the Flagstaff-hill, near Linton's, there is granite, which, no doubt, under lies the basalt uninterruptedly to Nammia and Mount Emu. The patch of silurian near the east boundary of the township of Skipton is traversed by a quartz vein, which was tested in a shallow shaft, and abandoned some years ago. Recently search was again made for this vein some 60 chains notherly along its supposed strike-in the Valley of the Emu Creek. A few shallow-pits were sunk under the talus of the basaltic cliff, striking a black bituminous clay. This led to the state-_ ment tha...

HOW TO WOO A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
110W TO WOO A WVOuiAr. Woo a wrman bravely. If there is any thing humiliating to a woman, it is to have a lover whom she wishes to honor, weak and vapid, ever yielding and half afraid of her. She 1 ungs to tell him to " act likea man !" The man who conceals or denies his love for fear of being laughed at, is a coward. A love that has no element of divinity in it is not love. but passion, which, of itself, has nothing ennobling. That was a beautiful in scription on an engagement ring, "Each for the other, and both for God." Pleuro.pneumonia has again made its un welcomeappearance, says theAlbu ry Banner., Several cases have occured, and terminated fatally, in a herd depasturing on the southern bank of the Murray 'Inoculation has been resorted to in order to iput a stop to the spread of the" disease, but the- season is so favorable to its :development that for tune will indeed be kind if it be stamped out beforo it becom.s epidemic.
COLAC. Monday, January 22. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 25 January 1877
COLA C. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Monday, January 22. The general elections are now close upon us, but as yet no stir seems to be made in Colau on behalf offreetrade. The freetraders are allowing the liberal party to blow their trumpet, and already the latter have brought into the field-at least they say so-Mr. O'Hea, who nearly defeated Mr. J. H. Connor, the present member, at the last election, and who it is said would have surely defeated him, had he come into the field a little sooner. Yet the Freetrade League are making no proparation for the coming struggle, and they have not 1 believe yet decided who is to represent them. Rather a poor state of things this, for the Freetrade League, who know well, the strength of the liberal party, backed up by a clique always at work. They know also well, how easily their men were defeated in the election fox the Upper House, and the Shire Council. In Colac, Mr. Zeal was 2.2 ahead of Mr. Belcher for the Upper House, and at the Shire Counci...

John Cumming, M.L.C., in troduced the deputation, supporting severance, and Messrs. Ower, Curdie, ond Mackinnon appeared for the Hamp den Shire Counril.
