Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 April 1870

BEGGARS ON HoRsE?ECK.-The indepeu dence of Colonial beggars canW Well be imagined when we relate an instance that occurred a few days ago. A man, mnouuted on a good.looking -nag, rode up to this office, dismounted, and asked whether be could get a job, stating he was a compositor. He was offered about 5s. worth of work, but this he declined as his horse was an incumni brance, and he thankfully accepted a small donation of a shilling, and cantered off rejoicing. A private match for £20 aside will be run on the Kilmore racecourse on the 2nd May proximo, between Mr Costellos ' Mountain Meg' and Mr Pullivan's 'Limerick Lass.' In another column we publish the bye laws of the Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road Board. If the local bodies in our neighborhood would adopt some such code of laws, and adhere to them, they would find that the business which in many in stances occupies almost the entire day could be got through with more satisfaction in one or two hours. Mr James Thomas, who has b...

USE OF LEMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 April 1870

USE OF LEMONS--When persons are feverish and thirst beyond what is natural, indicated in some cases by a metallic taste in the mouth, especially after drinking water, or by a whitish appearance of a greater part of the tongue, one of the best ' coolers' internal or external is to take a lemon, cut off the top, sprinkle over it some loaf sugar, working it down into the lemon with a spoon, and then suck it slowly, squeezing the lemon, and adding more sugar as the acidity increases, from being brought up from a lower point. Invalids with feverishness may take two or three lemons a day in this manner with the most marked benefit, manifested by a sense of cool- ness , comfort, and invigoration. A lemon or two thus taken at tea time, as an entire substitute for the ordinary supper of summer, would give many a one a comfortable night's sleep, and on awakening a feeling of rest and invigoration, with an appetite for break- fast to which they are strangers who will have their cup of tea and ...

Andrew Vair was brought up on Friday at the police court before Messrs Allen and Butcher, charged with having committed   wilful murder on 12th January, 1869, by shooting Amos Cheale. The prisoner, through Mr Harcourt, who appeared for him, pleaded "Not Guilty."   The court was crowded to excess. M. Inspector Mason, from Avoca, con- ducted the case for the Crown. John Smith, mining manager, said—On the 12th January, 1869, about 2 o'clock, I heard the report of a gun. Opened the door, and saw a woman running from the place where I heard the report. She said, "Smith run." Proceeded to the spot, which was up a hill 130 yards to the place on a tramway. Saw Cheale lying on the ground. He said, "Andrew Vair has shot me." He repeated it three times. He appeared to be in great pain. Ran into the bush to look for the prisoner, but could not see anybody. Then returned, and assisted Cheale to Cad- zow's ho...

A LARGE NUGGET PLOUGHED UP. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 28 April 1870

A LAMrE NUGGET PLOUGR ED UP. A nu-r,?t weighing 60oz, was ploughed up on Tuest y on Mr Allan's farm, Mount Prospect, fBullarook, and was exhibited on Wednesd:;v from 11 a.m till 2 p.m. at the Ballarat Melchanics' Institute, for the benefit of the Orpirn Asylum. A 6Ooz nugget is a very pretty sort of thing to crop in a field, but in Ballarat it is hardly a sufficiently re mai kable thing to exhibit in the way pro posed. Yet, as nuggets are always loveable things, and as this one may lead to the opening up of new ground, it may be honored as a very pleasant little " welcome stranger." The lump was, of course, only a few inches below the surface, and has what lools like ferruginous conglomerate attached to it, but is nearly all gold, and well waterworn. Star.

BLOWING UP OF THE LIGHTNING. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 28 April 1870

BLO WING UP OF THE LIGHTNING. We take the following particulars of the attempt yesterday to remove the Lightning wreck from the Fairway channel in Corio Bay, from the Advertiser: " A small platform had been erected over the beams of the vessel, originally intended by Messrs Donaldson and Co. to support their heavy pumping engines. Orn this, Colonel Anderson, accompanied by Colonel Rede, Captain Stubbs, and MIr Ellery, of the Observatory, took their stand. Mr Ellery, it may remarked, has for years past undertaken, as a volunteer, the supervision of all the military electric stores; hence his appearance on the platform; Two divers, George Eskdale and Richard Ingram, took it in turns to place the torpedoes in the positions assigned to them about the wreck. The torpedoes were lowered to them by means of a strong rope, and as each was fixed, the outer end of the insulated wire which communicated with the powder inside, was taken to the platform, and there firmly fixed into a connecting p...

'TIE return of Mr Michie unopposed for allarat. was qne of those events that may have been reasonably anticipated, though it is rather strange that the Loyal Liberals of that Lighly.enlightened constituency should quietly accept of the learned gentleman's political services without first seeking to bind him hand and fout, body and soul, to carry out all their particular desires, and to be never sparing of his pon era of oratory in advocating what they dee:n to be the right hing, without any regard whatever for his own opinions. This is about the least that the intelligent Loyal Liberals of Iallarat expect from any member they may return, and indeed tLey have been accustomed to that description of representation for so long a period that we are convinced many of them have already begun to repent of their late choice, as he is a man that will give utter ance to opinions of his own, without giving due conside...
