YEA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 December 1877

YEA. -4---- (FROM OUR CORIIRESPONDENT). As the aosse of M'Kenzie v Oliver, reported in last issue, was undefended and no mention having been made in my hearing of how the defendant owed the complainant 2s, I came to the con clusion that so small an amount could not have been the price of a sheep, but a balance due on one sold and delivered, 12s 6d costs being allowed, and thus 1 reported the matter. Subsequently I learned that Mr M,'Kenzie sued for the price of a lamb, killed by a dog sup posed to belong to Mr Oliver, who, not thinking it worth while defending so trifling an action, paid the amount into court. The mietuke was quite unin tentional on my part, and I hope Mr Oliver. who is known as a straightfor ward and honorable man of business, does not feel in anyway aggrieved. The members of the Yea cricket club are commencing to practice in good earnest every Saturday. Person desir ous of joining are requested to send in their names to the secretary AIr Cameron, as soon as possib...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 December 1877

MELBOURNE LETTER.. (aROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). The political plot is rapidly thicken ing, and besides the previous points of difference between the two Houses, another has been added through the inclusion in the Forts and Armaments Bill of a " free gift" preamble, by which the Legislative Council were. precluded from in any way altering the details of the measure. This they. resented as an attack upon their privileges, and laid the bill aside by a majority of 20 votes to 2. The scheme recommended by Sir William Jervois. for the defence of the port has thus been Indefinitely shelved in consequence. of the determined animosity of the. Government towards the Upper House,. and the colony is thus doomed to re main defenceless and an easy prey to. any power with whom the mother country may become embroiled. It is evident, however, that the main casua beli upon which the two Houses will. come into conflict is the question of payment of members, which has been. placed on the Estimatesby t...

Jq~*nndllt &O Lu' 1aturdairu PUILISlED EVERY BATURDAT " EXOELEIORI." SATURDAY, 1sT DECEMBER. APPEARANCES portend that the colony is once more on the eve of a grave and serious crisis, of which it is difficult to see the end, and which, whatever may be the result, roust cause a vast amount of public and private loss, unwhole some excitement, and damage to the credit of the colony. Of course it is much to be deplored that such con sequences should he brought about by any dispute between the two Houses of Legislature, but at this early stage of the dispute it is as well to clear the ground of all extraneous circumstances, and ascertain definitely what is the cause of the quarrel, and at whose door such lamentable results must lie should they unfortunately supervene. It must be promised in the first place that the whole bone of contention is one upon which not only have the electors pro. nounced no definite opinion, but re specting which there is on the one hand active anotagoni...

CATTLE ON THE PUBLIC ROADS. (To the Editor of the Standard.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 December 1877

CATTLE ON THE PUBLIC ROADS. (7o the Editor of the Standard.) Szn,--I suppose overy man has a griev. ance. I know I have, and in this instance I am not alone. Any person travelling be tween Alexandra and the Goulburn, on the main road to Tollarook, and counting the number of cattle that are turned out to pick up an existence on tIublio thoroughfares, will see the small chance that the bullock-team carriers have of finding feed for their cattle. Now, I have always been under the impres sion that the roads and reserves were in tended for the use of the carriers, and travel ling stock generally. I find, from the way they work the oracle" here, that I have been laboring under a mistake. In facr, the grass on the roads and reserves belong solely to the selectors in the vicinity, and they take precious goad care to claim their rights (?) to mend matters, one farmer down the creek is now shepherding his sheep on the roads nail adjoining reserve. If this is not a mean style of greed, I would...

Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] A POSTAL PARADOX. (To the Editor of the Standard.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 December 1877

0nrrrtspuliettne. I(We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our corresoandents.] A POSTAL PARADOX. (To the Editor of the Standard.) 8nB,--Allow me to ask why the postal ar rangements now in vogue between Alexandra, Taggerty, and Acheron are carried on in such an extraordinary mannor ? Tihe mail from the Acheron comes in on Saturday, and returns the same day "empty." This curious mode of procedure is again repeated on Wednes day, when the mail-man comes in from the Acheron empty, and returns with the mail. Surely the mail-man might just as well carry out the mail with him, as to ride out without it; but no; the post-olflco authourties say this must not be. I would therefore suggest that the people living on the road between Marys villeo and Alexandra at once take steps to have the present stupid arrangoment alterod, as it really is a farce to see the mail-man riding back thirty miles without a return mail-bag.-Yours, &c., Acheron, Nov. 27. REAso.

DARING EXPLOIT OF ENGLISH CAVALRY. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 December 1877

DARING EXPLOI P OF ENGLISH CAVALRY. ---+--- The most dashing feat performed during the campaign in Flanders in 1704 was the action of Pilliers-en. Couche. The French had intercepted the Emperor of Germany on his way from Brussels to join the army. A force of cavalry, of which the van was composed of 180 officers and men of the 15th and 120 of the Leopold Hussars (Austrion) was sent out to drive off the French. The supports missed their way, and General Otto, notwithstanding that he had only 306 men to oppose 10,000 of the enemy, determined to attack at all hazards in order to save the Emperor. The 1511h were ordered to attack in front, and the Leopold Hussars to turn the left flank. A strong body of skirmishers attempted in vain to chock the advance. Onward swept our men. The French cavalry now wheeled outward and broke, unmasking a line of infantry and guns. Unappalled, the 15th dashed at the line, and rode through it. They then sprang at a large square, composed of six battalions,...

A CHILD BURNED TO DEATH IN A CONFLAGRATION AT SANDHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 1 December 1877

A CHILD BURNED TO DEATH IN A CONFLAGRATION AT SANDHURST.     A fire broke out in a wooden house in Hargreaves street, Sandhurst, shortly before 2 o'clock yesterday morning, and in a few minutes the building was completely destroyed. It appears, says the Bendigo Advertiser, that a girl named Jinny Ivey resided in the house, and that as she was alone she had taken a little girl about six years of age from a girl named Mary Nash, who resided in the next house, to sleep with her. How the fire orginated is at present a mystery, but it is surmised that Ivey went out, leaving a candle burning, which must have by some means ignited the beodclothes, and before assist- ance could be rendered, the poor little girl was burnt to death. The scene at the fire was a heartrending one; the   mother rushed from the house with scarcely any clothes on her, and would have rushed into the flames had she not been prevented by the police. The charred remains of the unf...

A DENIAL. (7o the ditor of /the Standard.) Stn,-After reading thie account you give of the proceedings of the Shiro Council last week, the great body of the ratepayers might naturally infer from the report you give of the remarks of Dr Ferguasson, re the work in Grant street, opposite the police camp, that I was It coneenting party to the work being done. Now, sir, I hope you will do me the justice to publish this as an emphatic denial ol such a statemtclnt, and further that I never even heard that the work was required. I chal lenge any one to come forward and say that I hIav sanctioned thie work being done. ]But this job of Ferguseon's is only in keeping with Iis previous career as a councillor, for instance the Eglinton Gap arrangement, when Ihe put the council to the expense of soetee £400 for work tlhat could very well have storod over, anrd a iar better road have been made for £151 or £200.

KINGSFORD'S COIPLAINT. (7o the Editor of the Standard.) SIn,-Would you kindly permit me space in your valuable journal to reply to a letter headed " Complaint" in your last issue. On the 6th inst., whilst finishing some work on one end of my. contract, I was informed that Mr Kingsford was digging holes on part of my work, and I can assure you that I was indignant to think that any person would interfere with a contractor without first show ing his authority, or that any person having a spark of a gentleman would do so. But the fict of the matter is this, Alr K., seeing me proceed along the road that morning, thought I had left the works and that he could sneak about as he liked, and raise reports to the council and get himself praise for tihe in terest he took in the welfare of the shire and ratepayers.

CRICKET. GOBUR v. ALEXANDRA. This match was played at Gobur on Satur day last. The Alexandra team started at about seven a.m., arriving at Gobur shortly before ten, and alter having a wash and some refreshments, proceeded to the Around. The two captains (Mr Itidley for Gobur, and Mr Wollaston for Alexandra) tossed, and thie Gobur captain winning decided to send the visitors to tthe wickets. The batting of the Alexandra team was by no means equal to what had been shown on a former occasion, the wielders of the willow finding it very difficult to play the bowling. tlhe three highest scorers were Walton 18, 'acedougall 8, and Ilewitt 6, the total closing for 52 runs. The Goburites then went to the wickets, but could not stand for any time to the bowling of Wollaston and Walton; the only scorer who made double figures being Maitland with 10, the nmxt highest was W, Rtidley 4.
