COACH OPPOrr T.Os. To 7n0 Enrron or TOE Knr.so Trlts. Sir, - I cer'ainly must compliment you on the variety of correspondents whto writings .ippear in yr.ur columns, but "Victor Liber,' who makes his debut in your issue of the 7th oomes in a qutstionable shape (vide Sha cs pcare). Is h a frc-pass min, or des he in ulge i.o i is he descended from Liber Bacchus ? Is he a free trader or an open hearted liberal, and if so, why doesn't he sign his name. I am bold enough to aver that his so called proclamna tion is a concoction of his own, and while the mere change of initials may save him from the annoying corscqucences of making ueo of indi vidual names. this pr: crcding cannot blind tce, who can see as far through a stone wall as any one.

TERRIBLE CALAMITY AT ST. KILDA MELROURNE Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 21 December 1877
TERRIBLE CALAMITY AT ST. KIILDA MIELROURNE Monday. The severe windstorm which passed over the city and-suburbs early yesterday morn ing was the cause of a terrible calamity at the residence of Mr Nelson Marks,Ackland street, St. Kilda. About twenty minutes to S o'clock, Mrs Woolf, Mr Marks' mother-in-law, and a servant in the house heard a crash, like the roof falling in the bedroom occupied by Mrs Marks and her nephew, Julian Emanuel .Jacobs,a boy nine years of age. At the same moment Mlrs Woolf heard her daughter exclaim, " Oh, mny God !" She rushed to the bedroom,anda terrible scenemet her gaze. The room wasin a cloud of dust, and the bed on which Mrs Marks and her nephew lay was sinking under the weight of a pile of bricks and mortar. The roof of the room was smashed in, and it was at onceapparent that a ehim ney had fallen, and crushed through the house. Assistance was sent for, and three men set to work to remove the debris from the bed, but it took them about twenty minutes t...
PARLIAMENTARY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 21 December 1877
P'ARLIAIIENTAltY. Nothing was done by the Assembly on Wednesday week beyond the consideration of the Appropriation Bill,in which provision is made for the payment of mnembers. In reply to MIr Zox, who complained that com mercial circles were kept in a state of uncer tainty as to the intentions of the Govern ment with respect to one or two proposed alterations in the tariff, Mr Berry remarked that whateveranxietyprevailed on that sub ject was owing in a great measure to the pro ceedings off that other "commercial element" which was using its elements in another Chamber to oppose legislation that was sanctioned by the Assembly. Mr Service stated that great inconvenience was caused to every small trader in the community by the ignorance which prevailed as to the in tentions of Government with reference to the proposed alteration of the duty on dried fruits, and he asked Mr Berry to say what course the Government wouhl pursue. Mr Berry declined to give any information further than that ...
SELECT POETRY. A MELANCHOLY POET. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 21 December 1877
SELECT POETRY. A iELAECIIHOLY POET. Amongst the papers of a young man who committed suicide some years back in Mary borough (says the Chornicle), was found the following "Ode." We have never seen it in print, and believe it to be original. It is an evidence of the melancholy state of mind of the writer which finally induced him to commit the rash act of self-annihi lation: ODE TO THE TERRESTrIAL GaLOBE. [EY A 3tSERABLE WRE.rc.] I Roll on, thou ball, roll on ! Through pathless realms of space Roll on ! What though I'm in a sorry case? What though I cnnot meet my bills? What though I suffer toothache ills ? What though I swallow countless pills ? oever you mind, Roll on ! Through seas of inky air Roll on ! Roll on, thou ball, roll on ! It's true I've got no shirt to wear ; It's true my butcher's bill is due; It's true my prospects all look blue, But dos#t let that unsettle you; Never you mind, Roll on ! It rolls on.

DREADFUL FATAL ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 21 December 1877
DREADFUL FATAL ACCIDENT. Intelligence was received says the Ingle- wood Advertiser, that a sad accident oc- cured on Thursday morning, at the Water Mill Company's race, Bridgewater, whereby a man named Michael Rock sustained in- juries which resulted in almost instan- taneous death. Rock and a number of other men were engaged in making im- provements, to the water race,and were blast- ing with the object of clearing away some stone. Whether a shot hung fire, or whether Rock neglected to place himself at a safe distance, we do not know, but after one of the blasts had gone off, a piece of stone struck him senseless. He never spoke afterwards, and died while being removed to the Inglewood Hospital. An inquest was commenced at the Royal Hotel, when the evidence of the foreman of the works showed that deceased and two other men were told off to fire three shots. They did so, and deceased instead of running up the bank of the race into the open coun- try, ran down it. Several logs had be...

GENERAL TODLEBEN AND THE CZAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 4 January 1878
GENERAL TOULtiisiE ArND TIIE CZAR. The arrival of General. Todleben at the Russian headquarters, and his .virtual as sumption of- the-command - of-tho- army operating against 1'levna, attracted -great attention in Russian society; If the story current in St Petersburg be true, says the World, the pride of the Russian emperor must have suffered when he summoned Todleben to the seat of war; for it .is be lieved that the long-forced inactivity of the distinguished engineer was due to his hai ing too bluffly asserted his opinion in opposition to his Imperial master. It is said that, having summoned Todleben last year, the Czar toll him ho was about to mobilise four corps on the Roumanian frontier, with a - view - to eventualities in Turkey. "Four will not bs enough ; you will need eight," was Todleben's reply. "I said four," auswered the Czar haugh tily; and the engineer, whose military genius had kept the allied armies a whole long year before Sebastopol, went forth from the Imperial p...

TheI information which they have had to guide them .from the first has been slight, and false hopes have from time to time been raised, based simply on the ro mantic stories of servant girls.: Yesterday afternoon, however, something, of a little more tangible nature transpired. A. wo man was seen wending her way along Ross lyn street, followed by a crowd of boys,who called her the kidnapper. She did not appear to be perfectly sane, and told the boys that she was the woman who stole Mrs. Potts' child, and information of this fact was given to the police, and Con stable Curran was sent after the woman. In the meantime, says the Telegraph, she had made her way to the North Melbourne railway station, still being followed by the crowd of boys. Constable Curran found her o...

LARRIKIN OUTRAGE AT BALLARAT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 4 January 1878
LARRIKIN OUTRAGE AT BALLA RAT. At an early hour on the 26th ultimo, we learned that when the Haddon coach was passing through South street at mid night a number of young men-attacked it, and forced the passongers both off the top and from inside the vehicle. Several of the passengers were injured about the face and body striking them with sticks. The driver managed to get away with the coach as far as the cattle-yards, leaving the pas sengers to overtake him as best they could or the probability is that the vehicle would have been smashed to pieces. Sergeant Carden,assisted by Senior-constable Lever ton and two mounted men, left the city station for the scene of the outrage as soon as the -particulars arrived. It is to be hoped the ruffians who were guilty of this blackguardly attack will be speedily brought to justice.--Ballarat Courier.

SELECT POETRY. LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 4 January 1878
SELECT POETRY. LOVE. As Love iin the garden strayed one day, Plucking the flowers in wanton play, A bee conceal'd 'midst the flowery band, Painfully wounded his godship's hand; Then quickly away to Venus flying, lie cried, " Oh, dearest mamma, I'm dying; For the serpent fiend in the shape of a bee, To the very death has wounded me." But Venus-smiled at the wonderous fuss, Yet seeking to soothe him answered him thus "If the tiny bee, with its tiny'dart Can cause such wondrous painful smart, Then think with ten fold fury thrown How much more painful are thine own.
