BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 October 1866
BALLAN. (raox oeon SPECIAL COBRESPONDENT.) I sAID, in my last communication, that I would follow up the subject of the Bank and Town Hall. This week I do so, bc lieving that it is of importance, so far as the future of Ballan is concerned. iFor centurics past, political and diplo matic science has laid it down as an axiom, that the governing power of a nation be. comes powerless the moment that the balance of power is destroyed; and the balance of power can only be maintained by the har mony of a nation's interests, Therefore it follows, as a logical sequence, that if a nation or a town has no harmony of interests, it has no balance of power; and having no balahnce of power, its progress must always remain a matter of chance, instead of being the result of a systematic design. These self evident facts in political and diplomatic science form the basis of all my arguments when advocating the creation of new in terests for Ballan. Now, the circumstance which has kept Ballan back so lo...

THE CRISIS IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 6 October 1866
THE CRISIS IN VICTORIA. (FEo vin: "DAIuLY NEws," JULY 10.) Sin CILUILES DInELTX has left Vietoria amidst scenes which seem more proper to the return of a conqueror in triumph than to the withdrawal of a censured and dismissed pub. lie servant. The people of the city of Mel bourne, and f"om the countr: around within railway conmunnication. flocked to pay him the tribute of their respect and sympathy. They felt that the wre losinthe services of an able and upri:ght ruler, and they also I felt that he was su?fering grievous wrong for their sakes. This is the serious part of the matter; thr just so ih? as the leave-taking was a testimony to Sir Charles Daring, it was a demonstration-not at'ainst England or the English connection, but against the Colonial Miaister, who had recalled Sir Charles for abiding by the maxims of constitutional government, and had appointed an inferior man in his place, with express instructions in certain cases to set those maxims at nought.

AGRICULTURAL. ALDERMAN MECHI ON GREEN CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 13 October 1866
AGRI CULT U R A L. ALDERMAN MECHI ON GREEN CROPS. 1OW9 TO CONVERT TOUR ROOT AND GREEN CROPS' INTO 1EAT TO THIE BEST ADVANTAGE. T?rs is, in my opinion, one of the most important of agricultural questions, and one of very difficult solution. It is dependent on so many considerations, such as the breed and quality of your stock; whether you should breed or buy; the health and comfort of the stock as regards shelter, temperature, and above all, purity of air by ventilation; and then again, the admixture of various sorts of food, and their state of preparation by comminution; and, when all these matters are in proper order, there is still one of importance-thlat is, a stock-keeper with keen perception' and due regard for his master's inteirests; or, better still, the farimer's own eye, if a correct one. If .we are wrong on stock management, adieu: to profit, for it is the sheet anchor of fariiinig. Salt is -very important for animals, as for ourselves. Largo blocks of rock salt are alway...
