KYNETON GRAIN SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 7 April 1870

KYNETON GRAIN SHOW. The autumn exhibition of the Kyneton Agricultural Association took place on Fri' day in the Show Yards in Baynton street. The entries were few in number, and the prizes in grain, &c., were taken by those who have been awarded the prizes at the other principal shows this season. G. Fowler, of Glenlyon, took that for wheat. Some dissatisfaction was expressed at the award,as by many good judges the wheat was consi' dered cver two years old. Mr Fowler, how. ever, signed a declaration to the effect that the wheat was grown by him this year, and that it was his property: The second prize was taken by Alexander Hunter, Lauriston. That for oats fell to D. Sandford, Tylden. In barley, most of the people seemed to think that the second award should have been first. Some fine chickory roots were shown by Arthur Foe, of Malmsbury. The flax seed was also of good quality. A special prize was taken by Alexander Hunter for one bushel of wheat, which weighed 661bs 8ozs. I...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 7 April 1870

-t IF Earl Granville's opinion (says The Au~, tralasian) with respect to the imperative 0 obligations devolving upon colonial governors C to uphold the law is not less strong and has been not less explicit and emphatically exi ( pressed, than was Mr Cardwell's. Some a months back, the question of the expenditure 1 of public noney without sanction of law, and C on the mere authority of the Executive, was raised in New South Wales. The matter was brought under the notice of Her Man jesty's Secretary of State for the Colonies by the Earl of iBelmore, to ivhom Lord Granz ville addressed a despatch in reply, setting b forth that "excel tin case of absolute and immediate necessity (such e g., as the preser, vation of life), no expenditure of public b: money shall be incurred without sanction of bl law, unless it could be presumed not only that both branches of the Legislature would hold the expenaiture itself unobjectionable, but also that they would approve of that expenditure being made...

THE BACK SLUMS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 7 April 1870

THE BAOCK LURS. -o Under this heading a writer in the Evening Herald states Those who, in reading " Oliver Twist," have been sickened by the descriptions of dens of misery and crime in the heart of London, and revolting details of the every day life of their miserable occupants, could, it is scarcely an exaggeration to say, find real counter parts for both in the city of Melbourne: There are thousands of pers-ns who have resided in this city and its suburbs for years, who,, if they but strolled through Little Bourke street and Little Lonsdale street, and ventured to penetrate the innumerable lanes, alleys, and right-of.ways which branch off in the immediate neighbourhood of these ard many other of the narrower thoroughferes, would be forced to confess that they had no idea that such wretohed haunts existed in this young city, or that so large a number of the degraded and criminal classes whom they encounter at every step were included in our population, Nearly all these miserable te...

WHY WEAR MOURNING? [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 7 April 1870

WHY WEAR MOURNINGI? -o - I wish that a few sensible, intelligent, wealthy people would cease draping and festooning themselves like engine hoLses, when a death occurs in the family. I use the word " wealthy" advisedly; because it is only that class who can really effect a refor. mation, for the reason that they will not be supposed unable "to pay a proper respect," as the phrase runs, to the deceased. Proper respect ! Do yards of crapse and bombazine never express the opposite emotion ? Is real, heartbreaking griefto be guaged by the width of a hem, or the length and thickness of a veil? Have not many a widow and orphan woke up, the morning after a funeral, to find the little left by deceased expended in funereal carriages for people who would not lift a helping finger if it would keep them out of the almsshouse ? We all know that, or if we don't we may wake up to the fact acme future day; when the sunshine of pros, perity is clouded over. That point alsposed of, it must also be rem...

CRIMINAL TRIALS WITHOUT JURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 14 April 1870

ORIMINAL TRIALS WITHOUT JURIES. e The Canadian Parliament last year passed a very remarkable act, making a radical change in the constitution of criminal courts by dispensing with juries. A writer in the Canada Law. Journal for November_sAys, "It is one of those gigantic strides in legislation tne full bearing and extent of which is not at first fully perceived, but when brought into use, and its value seen, we are apt to wonder why it was not long before placed on the statute book." This is certainly an accurate description; it is a gigantic stride in legislation, and one which requires strong evidence of its benefit cial operation to induce approval in this czuntry. A correspondent, in a positionQ which gives him an olpportunity of learning the general feeling of the country, tells us that the statute was introduced by the head of the Government at Ontario, the Heon. Mr Attorney General M'Donald, and. "that the measure.has been most favourably received by the judges, the bar, and ...

THE BEAUTIFUL SNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 14 April 1870

THIS BEAUTIFUL SNOW. I Oh ! the snow, the beautiful snow, a Filling the sky and the earth below; - Over the house tops, oyer the street, a Over the heads of the people you meet, a Dancing, flirting, skimming along; Beautiful snow! it can do nothing wrong;. 1r lying to kiss a fair lady's cheek, Clinging to lips in a frolicsome freak; I Beautilu- snow from the heavens above, Pure as an angel, gentle as love! Oh! the snow, the beautiful s~ow, How the flakes gather and laugh as. they go Whirling about in their maddening fun, It plays in its glee with everyone Chasing, laughing, hurrying by, It lights on the face and sparkles the eye, And the dogs, with a bark and a bound, Snap at the crystals that eddy around The town is alive and its heart in a glow To welcome the coming of beautiful snow. How wildly the crowd goes svaying along, Hailing eash other with humor and song! Honr the gay sledges like meteors flash by, Bright for a moment, then lost to the eye; Ringing, swinging, <...

A FALLEN WOMAN'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 14 April 1870

A FALLEN WOMAN'S STORY. -o - The Omaha Republican gives the follow ing history of this production, which the London Spectator has pronounced the fines: poem ever written in America. In the early part of the war, one dark Saturday night in the dead of winter, there died in the Com mercial Hospital, in Cincinatti, a young wo0 man, over whose head only two and twenty summers had passed, She had been once possessed of an enviable share of beauty, and had been, as she herself says, " flattered and sought for the charms of the face," but alas ! upon her fair brow had been written that terrible word-- , Once the pride of re speotable parentage, her frst wrong step was the small beginning of the same old story over again, which has been the only history of thousands. Highly educated and acconm plished in manners, she might have shone in the best society. But the evil hour that proved her ruin came, and having spent a young life in disgrace and shame, the' poor friendless one died the melanc...

MODERN VIEWS OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 14 April 1870

l dODR JEN VIEWS OF WOMEN. 1, Many men shrink from the idea of a wol 1 man having any career but a domestic one; 4 ad St Paul is triumphantly quoted as to the - particular duties of women; but St Paul j wrote when social conditions were different. Il~fhe fact remains that hundreds of women lust find some means of earning their daily |riead; and not only their own, but very !'$ ten that of others depending on them. How many a daughter has to support a mother! how many a sister has to maintain, or help to maintain her sisters! yes, and brothers too. Aa in many other cases in England, men look on these things, not as they .ra, but as they would wish them to be, St Paul says, " Iet the younger women marry;" but the experiv ence of life. in the nineteenth century is that young women cannot all marry, for the sim' pie reason that there are not young men to. marry them; and even when such an imporn taut unit is found, an equally important element is often *anting, viz, mo9ey; and whatever ...

THE BEST FAMILY IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 14 April 1870

. iLE BEST FAMILY IN ENGLA(D,. - .o --- We are offoa asked which is the best Samily in England ? It is not an easy ques, ,on to answer. What tests can we apply to determine it ? Let. us try these three- length of descent, ancient renown, and his. torical importance. Length of descent throws out of the competition many distinguished ilames, such as those of Howard, Russell, ana Cecil. Ancient renown throws out such families as Seymour, Talbot, and even Stan: ley, none of which were above the middle ranks 500 yelrs ago But all the conditions seem to be fulfilled by tour families-those ?f Hastings, Fie!4lng, Cootrtney, and Nevil. The first has been more or less noble ever since the Conques, The ýseond is said, but on doubtful grounds, to have been of the imperial Hapsburg race, and to have settled in England in the reign of Henry III. The Courtneys claim to be descended from Phara. mnond. the founder of the French monarchy, whose date is placed by historians at the middle of the fifth ...

DALMAIOY CAMPBELL AND CO'S REPORT. Melbourne, April 6, 1870: FAT CATTLE-874 came to hand, most of them being from middling to good quality, with nothing really prime amongst them: There was a good ati tendance of the town trade, who bid very freely for everything sold, on the usual credit, and our sales during the day showed an advance of 30s per head over those offered on shorter terms, Altogether the market was very satisfactory, an advance in some cases, of fi lly 40s per head being ob tained over last week's currencies.
