A small Mediterranean vessel making the voyage from Sardinia to Sicily a few days ago, came upon a white bear swimming about in the water. The bear made for the boat to the great consternation of the men on board. As the vessel was very heavily laden, it was feared that the mere attempt of the animal to climb on board would capsize it. On came the bear. and the captain armed himself with a hatchet, with which he chopped off both the animal's paws as it seized the boat. The bear fell back into the sea, and was soon finished by a musliet ball or two. Ihe animal was a true Polar bear, ttiough how it came there was a puznle Some experimental practice with blind torpe.does has just been concluded at Ports. mouth, and has been attended with resu.ts highly favourable to the torpedo under trial as a weapon of attack upon iron clad ships whether at anchor or moving under steam.

SPIRITUAL PHENOMENA. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 April 1870
SPIRITUA r, PHENO?IENA. --o Experiments l. Aly made by the Detective Committee of r,. Dialectical Society in Melbourne, to wove that movements of heavy bodies like ., les have occurred without contact. This is the only unimpeachable and conclusive test, because it excludes the possibility of conscious or unconscious muscular action, which is generally supposed to be the cause of its movements. The committee, in their report, state that they have lately directed their almost ex clusive attention to this subject, justly con sidering that such a demonstrative proof couloa ot be too often repeated, under many conditions, and with every safeguard that sagacity could devise. The plan ultimately adopted, for the purpose of security against any possible imposition, was as follows: The private rooms of different members of the committee were then chosen for this ex periment, and none were admitted until the hour of meeting, so that pre~arrangement of mechanism impossible.

Permit me, sir, to make a few remarks on the subject, and then you will bh able to judge what party was cens surable. There was a complaint lodged by the Superintendent of the Police, against a particular ratepayer, for allowing a well of his to remain nu, covered, in an unfenced allotment, it being extremely dangerous for abildren to approach, as well as adults who might travel in that direction, and upon my asserting that legal proceedings ought to be insti' tu ed against the party'for such offence, Or Bossence, the principal actor in the affair, remarked that it was not in the power of the Council to interfere,.

A young man living in the country is humility personified. The other day he asked a young lady if he mignt ,be allowed the privilege of going ho'ne with her, and was indignantly refused, whereupon he inquired, very humbly, if ie might be " allowed to sit on the tence and see her go by." INFErENT"[rl -A. mother, who had with her a little daughter, was examining the figure of a horseon a tombstone, and wondert ring what it was an emblem of. There was nothing to explain it in the inscription " Mamma," said the little one, as they moved away, " I ,-houldn't wonder if she died of the nightmare." A lady went into at linendraper s shop in the city, and inquired for " bleached cloth." Several pieces of sheeting were offered for inspection, but failed to suit. " Perhaps," said the lady, " if I shtauld tell you what I want it for, you would know better what to give me. It is to be used for 'reposing robes.'" The man threw down another piece, hastily summoned another shopman, and vanished in t...

SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 April 1870
SONG. 1 heard a song in sunset, In summer woods beguilinz, When through the happy valley The golden grain was sm;ling. The rippling of a fountain With dulcet muniic bit nded, The lark paus'd high in heaven, Until the song was ended; A flood of gold and purple Fringed all the western sky, Dyeing the restlcss water, And the mountiins gran nd nd lih. It murmured through the valley, That low loin sweet and tender It lingers with me ever, Tn darkness and in splendour. 0, would I were a poet, To ma:ke one name immortal, And write it ihonour-crown'd, On Fame's eternal portal. The name and soun are flowing In my heart as silver rills, Wending onward to the ocean, Along the steadfast hills. MAx. ...........

SEYMOUR RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 April 1870
SEYMOUR RACES. -0 The above races took place on Thursday, 14th April; the day was all that could be desired, The course was in good order, and there was only one booth on the ground and, judging from appearances, there must have been a large amount of business done. It was most remarkable that there was scarcely a drunken man seen on the course. No accidents occurred, and everything was con ducted in the most orderly manner. A large number of police were on the course, some in uniform and some in plain clothes, under the strict surveillance of the worthy Super.. intendent Green, who no doubt would be anxious to drop in with his friend Power. The usual number of doodle'emrbucks, under and over tables, &c., were in great force and caused some amusement when the stall holder fees were demanded of them.

PUBLISHED THURBDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1870. A " MINNG Reform Association " has lately been established at Ballarat, its principal object being to take the necessary steps "to lessen the rent payable upon mining leases to a sum not exceeding 5s. per acre per annum for gold producing mines, and to a nominal-rent for progressive mines." We are amongst those who think it high time that the mining industry of the colony should receive special attention from our legislature, as upon the encouragement given to such interests will mainly depend our advancement. It is a well established fact that were it not for our mineral productions Victoria would not rank high above the neighboring colonies. Our resources here are not otherwise superior to those of New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, &e. Our soil, for either pasture or agriculture, is if anything inferior to that of the places named, and whilst we cannot ascribe oar rapid and proressive stiides to the energeti...

A THEATRE IN A STATE OF SIEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 April 1870
A THEATRE IN A STATE OP SIEGE. -0 ' It is an il wind that blows nobody good,' is an old 'aw, and a very true one, and is just now most applicable to the tihymarket Theatre, round which of late a perfect adverse Boreas has been blowing, that will in the end blow something into the pockets of the legal profession. It, will be remem bered that Messrs iHarwood and Co, who last year were the lessees of the theatre, obtained a renewal of their lease on the 24th of March from Mr J. Mackenzie, one of the trustees. On the 6ch of April Mr Joseph Sullivan, another of the trus'ees, and the only one, according to his own statement, in the colon, made an agreement to let the premises for five years to Mr John de Hage: On the 7th April -the day on which Meassrs Harwood and ,?'s old lease expired-Mr Sullivan forcibly entered the theatre and took possession. A meeting of the bondholders was held on Monday lest. at which Mr Sullivan attended, and professed to be acting in the interest of the small bo...
