HOW THE GOVERNMENT REMUNERATE PUBLIC OFFICERS! [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 13 October 1855

HOW THE GOVERNMENT REMUNE RATE PUBLIC OFFICERS! A short time since we noticed tho extraor dinary manner in which the Government noted with reference to the arrears of salary of the Stipendiary Magistrate. This, unfortunately, ia not a solitary instance of the ungrateful manner in which public servants are treated. In many departments in which efficiency and integrity are of the most vital importance, they are perilled by a scale of remuneration seem ingly designed only to secure tho most ineffi cient men. Not' only is this the case, but there are converse instances in which .the niggardly parsimony on the one hand is more strongly contrasted with an inexplicable ex travagance. We profess ourselves the advocates of considerate economy, but not of injustice or oppression; and though opposed to all un necessary appointments, at tho same time we approve and recommend that where public ser vants are required, every encouragement should be given to induce the must competent to enter and c...

Mr. Ben ■son having been called to the chair, Dr. Wall, in a some what lengthy speech, adverted to the difficulty of obtaining au inhabitant of Sandhurst to come forward.

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 13 October 1855

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Bendigo Advertiser. Sir,—I trust, through the medium of your columns, you will allow me to refute a statement made by Alex. Millie, my late partner in quartz-raining, made before the Local Court at Sandhurst, and which appeared in your paper of the 30th ultimo. It appears that on Wednesday, the 20th ultimo, Millie addressed a letter to the Court, paying to be pro tected against the payment of a promissory note, given for a debt owing me, and contracted during our partner ship, and stated, as his reason for the prayer, that I had rendered erroneous accounts to the Court, by mak ing overcharges ou articles procured by me from Melbourne. This statement of Millie's, I beg most positively to say, is totally unfounded, and that the Court, having in spected the original accounts, which I have produced, hits expressed itself perfectly satisfied with them, and is, moreover, convinced that, instead of my having made any overcharge, the accounts ha...

MUSIC. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Bendigo Advertiser — 13 October 1855

MUSIC. (From a Correspondent.) M Ismfinlas is a most insignilicaut being," said nn aucient sage, " otherwise he would not play so beauti fully on the flute." It may seem strange that such an observation should have emanated from a man of supe rior mind, but Antisthenes was not alone in his opinion on this subject. Kvery one will remember the rebuke administered by Philip of Mancdnn to bia son Alexander the Great, on hearing him play on the lute at a festival in a masterly manner, " Are you not ashamed, Alexander, of playing so well?" he exclaimed. By certain intellects, therefore, it would appear that the divine art is looked upon us a mere frivolous amuse ment, not worthy of the stiulv or attention of any but the most mediocre capacities. To those who are not naturally musieians, this may probably appear, at'the first blush, to bo a correct idea, but, on mature conside ration, how false and erroneous does it not prove to be t Nothing so humanize# and ameliorates the heart as Kweet ...

The celebrated Dr. Fall then proposed " That the meeting sign a requisition to Captain Bull to stand as a candidate for the member of council for Sandhurst, as he was eminently qualified to fulfil that important post." The great number of persons present being astonished at this remarkable proposition, remained silent for a length of time, when Captain Dun being moved by the spirit said—" Gentlemen, Captain Bull will make a very eloquent legislator, yet I can't exactly coincide with Dr. Fall on this occasion: I therefore propose that Captain Bull and other gentlemen who wish to represent Ben digo he reques...

During the last few days there have been rumours that our Stipendiary Magistrate had received official intimation of his removal to Fiery Creek, ,at present the scene of so much, lawlessness arid crime. Humour also asserted that Mr. MaoLaehlan had refused to accept of the appointment, and had tended his resigna tion to the government. These rumours, with out being literally'true,!'to a great extent anti cipate the truth.

There appeal's to be a considerable quantity of ground, varying in depth from 10 to 15 feet, all along this creek that might be worked with profit and which will doubtless bo opened during the ensuing summer, when the water in this neigh bourhood is less troublesome than at present.
