No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 12 March 1875

Su?roas in the County Court in the Colac district are to hbe congratulated upon the fact that the.cases in which they are interested will not be adjudi cated upon by that eccentric homo, Judge Skinner. The latest develop ment of His Honor's peculiarities of miid occurred at the Waranamnbool General Sessions last week, during the hearing of the appeal case, ?'Arthur v. Hampden Shire Council. Judge Skinner's action in this case will not tend to the conservation of that feeling of respect which is felt throughout all English-speaking communities for the occupants of the Judicial Benches. The plaintiff in the case alluded to--iMr Peter M`Arthur-appealed against the valuation placed upon his property by the Hampden Shire Council, on the ground that the valuation was excessive and uinfair.- Miessrs W. Scott, J.. V. Bartlett, B. J. Miller, D. N: Moodie, T. Baker, anad G. Huarrison, the valuer for the Shire, all gave evidence that the land was:worth at least £7 per acre all round, some of t...

LOSS GF THE GOTHEINBURG. A. correspondent signing himsel "Sheliback " sends the following letter to the Age. It is interesting as point ing to the true cause of many of the disasters happening on ourcoast:- --- " The particulars of the wreck of.the Gothenburg are just what I have all along (when in conversation with others on the subject)- said they would be, viz., thick weather, and the vessel havi ing been urged at speed that would hardly have been safe even in the very clearest of weather in such very narrow waters. But, instead of the weather heing clear, we are told that it was thick and the ship under full steam, and carrying all the sail that the increasing gale would allow. Under such circum stances, had anything been seenin' the way, even at considerable distance, the ship would have had very little chance indeed of bein, able to alter her course in time to have cleared it.

A STRANGE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 March 1875

)A STRANGE STORY. RTe Bendigo Advertiser reports that at the City Police Court on Thursday, a man named Williams was brought up on remand, charged with the thelt of a retorting tank lid, and as no owner could be found, was again remanded till Saturday, to give the police an opportunity of tracing the owner. On the same day his wife appeared in his absence to answer a chare of not hav inog complied with the compulsory clauses of the Education Act. The woman was clean, well-ordered to all appearances, and said she was poverty stricken; the man, as he had been seen in the dock on his first appearance, was a drunken, dirty, dissipated sot. Williams in theyear 1855 was employed at a wage of £1 per day,'in the first claim that gentleman held on the Vic toria Reef-the claim which, indeed, was the foundation of his fortune. There were two other men also. in his employ named Ruberts and Frost, on the same terms. Through some means never clearly explained the . three Roberts, Frost and Willia...

His former chief in the Geological:braich, it is stated, wrote all the way from Canada to prove, that Mr Smythe was ignorant of the definition between omeuni and tuum, in ajliterary point of view. How ever, this oplinion is not shared by the Min ister of Lands, who seemingly has taken the MIining Chief Officer into his counsels in more instances than one, and to the manifest dis mnay of the officials in Latrobe-street west.

'Tis the custom here with the railway folks to tout for business, and every stranger who arrives in the city is at once button-holed, and almost forced to buy tickets for a line he knows nothing of or may not care to travel on.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 16 March 1875

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. Comllaints have been received by several of the local bodies of the Wes tern district of the arbitrary character of some of the regulations affecting far mers' commons. When these areas weie reserved for the benefit of the country districts, a general impression prevailed that if permission was granted lor the grazing of sheep as well as other kinds of stock, advantage would be taken of these facilities by the large settlers to the detriment of the farmers and selectors, for whose.special use the commons were set apart. To prevent any monopoly of the kind, sheep were therefore prohibited in most cases, and only horses and cattle were allowed to be depastured. The result of this arbitraryarrangemen.t is that on many commons, the .regulations, are system atically infringed, and flocks of sheep are turned out to enjny free grass at the risk of bing -impounded. Quie recently a petition wns presented to the Winnhlsea Shire Council by the far I;ers of Alodewarre and th...
