TITLE OF THE NEW SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 September 1866
TITLE OT THE NEW SOCIETY. M'r. MaIrs, in moving as to the title of the Society, thought the name should not be deter. mined by lot. There was not much in a name, certainly; but it would not be fair to the Society to tako away its prestige by placing Badlan before it. Ballan should be satisfied by coming second. He moved that thile title of the now Socielty be "The United Agricultural and Pactoral Society of Bacehus Marsh, Ballan, and Pentland Hills." Mr. Duncan thought it unnecessary to add the words "Peontland Hills" to the title of the Society, as Pontland Hills formed part of both the other districts. He would second Mir. Mairs's motion, if "Pentland Hills" were expunged. Mr. A. Grant differed from Mr. Duncan. He though that the words "Pentlanud Iiills" should come in the middle, between Bfcchus Marsh and Ballan. It would read better. Mr. Young said he would profor only one name, Ballarat, which embraced many districts, was sim ply termed "The Ballarat Farming Society." An approp...

NEWS OF THE W~EK. In another portion of our columns will bhe found a report of the business transaoted at the Bacohus Marsh and Maddingley Road Board, on Saturday last. Among other items it will be noticed that the Board has determined on memorializing tlhe Governor in Council for an extension of the dis. trlot. As we pointed out in a previous issue, the action taken by the Board in the election of a Valuer was found to be illegal. A resolution, fix. ing the salary of Valuer at .£50, was rescinded, it having been determined at a former meeting to employ a Valuer and Collector, at a salary of .£35, and an asslistant Valuer, at .£20. The election of Mr. George Grant, in opposition to Mr. W. Andor-. son, as Valuer and Collector, was (as on a former I occasion) determined by the casting vote of the Chairman of the Board, who stated that, although he had voted for Mr.Anderson at a former meeting, he would not do so on this occasion, because he considered Mr. Grant virtually elected then....

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 September 1866
BALLAN. (FRO5 OUR SPECIAL CORRESP'ONDENT.) WIVAT religion is to the soul of man, so are politics ;o the body of man. Religion saves the soul from ho pains and penalties of the world to come; pol.i les save the body from the tyranny and misrule )f this. Religion teaches men how to live, and how to die; politics teach men how to act, and libw to govern. IThe former is a doctrino whoso prlnciples regulate the vast and vital interests of the spiritual world; whilst the latter is a science whose prinoiples govern the mighty, complicated business of material lifo. Religion and politics re twln-born, and over go hand-in-hand. We can no more separate them in the great business of human life than we could have separated the Blumese twins. What is lifo to one islife to both. Destroy religion, and the inmsortmd empire of the soul is lost. Desoutroy polities, and the grand old temple of freedom will fall, and bury beneath its ruins the triumphs of a thousand years in art, in cionco, and in lite...

BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 September 1866
BLACKWOOD, (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) THERE seems to be a determination on the part of the postal authorities to alter the route of the Melbourne and Blackwood mail. The tenders which are now called for the conveyance of the mails for the ensuing year, provide for the conveyance to Black wood via Kyneton. This arrangement will be very inconvenient, in many ways, to the people of the former place ; for it will have the effect of cutting off communication with the large and extensive farming districts of Blackwood, Pentland Hills, and also Ballan (of which I hear it is a portion), to say no- thing of Bacchus Marsh, and the other districts through which it now passes. It is desirable that immediate action should be taken in the matter, for there can be nothing urged in favour of this deviation; even a saving of expense will not be effected, as the Kyneton route is likely to cost more. The very un- seasonable hours of arrival and departure four p.m. and four am,--will be very incon- venien...
