THE CONVERSAZIONE AT THE ATHENÆUM. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 16 May 1857

THE CONVER1SAZIONE AT THE A'THE NIEUM. The first of a seriesof entertainments was given at the rooms of the Atheasnm, on Tuesday eveninglast, and, we are glad to chronicle, with complete success. Through the liberality of the Rev. Mr. Medland and other well-wishers of the institution, the hall was appropriately decorated with a choice collection of pictures; and an interesting variety of models, stereoscopes, galvanic batteries, statuary, and other works of art, made up a most attractive exhibition. The rooms adjacent were liberally supplied with re freshments, and furnished a tempting retreat during the evening. To the Committee every credit is due for their admirablearrangements and unwearied efforts to secure the comfort of the visitors. - The entertainment opened with a programme of selected music. The introductory overture of L'ltali ane, in " Algieri," was brilliantly rendered by the band, after which MIiss Louisa Swannell sung with admirable taste the favourite ballad "Why do...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 16 May 1857

"CarTAX" MnELVILLE.-We understand that the convict Melville has again been re moved from the hulk President to his old quarters in the Melbourne gaol. It appears that the conduct of this man during his last visit to the President was anything but satis factory to the officers under whom he was placed. He was insubordinate and oftentimes extremely noisy, doing his utmost to incite the other prisoners to rebellion. On his return from Melbourne, it is said, he addressed his old companions in a free and easy sort of a way, and asked them if they were not ashamed of the conduct they had displayed during his absence. He told them that they ought not to complain-that they should be content with such things as they had, and that it was their place to be obedient to the commands ot their superiors. During the absence of the Pictoria- ear steamer the prisoners have been -exceedingly troublesome, "and the 'warders ,.ihbave had great difficuliy in' maintaisiing'any --thing like discipline.

SITUiTED as we are in these - colonies-sepa rated by the earth's diameter from the great centres of population and of commerce, and, very many of us, from our nearest relatives-- any interruption of the postal communication 'with Great Britain is the greatest injury that can be inflicted upon us.

PETTY LARCENY.-Two youths, named Janmes Gardener and Robert PWebb, were brought up at this court, on Thursday last, remanded from the 18th inst., charged with stealing a quantity of tobacco, worth about thirty-nine shillings, the property of a Mr. Savery, a storekeeper, at North Williams stown. From the evidence of Mrs. Savery, the wife of the prosecutor, it appeared that on Saturday night last, about ten o'clock, the prisoners came into her shop and said they wanted to buy a shirt; and during the time she was absent in an adjoining room, se lecting the article, a large piece of tobacco was removed from the counter. On her return, seeing the tobacco was gone, she charged the prisoners with having stolen it. The lads however denied that they had done so, and, after pretending to search the shcp, they de camped.

It is said that the line between this place and Geelong will be opened for traffic in the course of a fortnight or three weeks. MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS. — Capt. Clarke, in a communication to the Argus, by way of reply to a published letter of Councillor Ver- don relative to the amendment of the Munici- palities Act, says it is his intention to ask the Legislature to consider the subject, and that he trusts he shall have less difficulty in ob- taining an improved system of local self- government than he had in 1854, when his views upon the question were but indifferently supported.
