THE ATHENÆUM PERFORMANCES. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 30 May 1857

THE ATHENEUM PERFORLMANCES. [ To the Editor of the WILLAMSTOWN CuRONICLEc. Srn,-In the Chronicle of last week appeared a critique on the late performances at the Athenneum, to which I beg respectfully to call your attention . Among other things you say, that "the vocal part of the programme, albeit ceitain acoustic difficulties with which the amateurs had to contend, was plea singly rendered, but you were sorry to observe that the same apology could not be urged on behalf of the pianoforte accompaniments ;" adding that "nothing short of musical talent of a high order would suit the tastes of the fishing villagers.' Now, Sir, I am not going to contradict your state nients, either in regard to the style in which the vocal parts were rendered, or the "inimitable" mins ner in which the various characters were sustained. If the "villagers" are satisfied with what they got for their money, that I presume is all that is required, I can assure you I have no desire to see them other wiise; o...

VOTE BY DALLOT AT ,MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [To the Editor of the WVILLiAMu TOW CIIRONICLF.] Sr,---Seeing in your journal of last week a state ment that Captain Clarke contemplated submitting the Municipalities Act, in an amended form, for the consideration and approval of the Legislative Assem bly, it occurred to me that it might not be out of place if our Council were to ascertain what are his pioposed alterations. You are aware that at our last inunicipal election there was a strong feeling displayed by the ratepayers of this town in favour of vote by ballot. Each can didate was asked the question, "Are you in favour of the ballot 1!" and in every instance the answer was given most unhesitatingly in the aflinmative. The three gentlemen who were elected most distinctly pledged themselves to do their utmost to establish in Williamstown at least-this very important mea sure. Two months have already expired; and al though I have narrowly watched the proceedings of our Council, as reporte...

A FEMALE REFUGE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 30 May 1857

A PEMALE REFUGE. On Monday afternoon last, an adjourned edeeking of the subscribers to this institution took place at the lechbanira' Institute in Melbourne. The lHon. J. Hodgson occupied the chair, and proceeded to read the advertisement convening the meeting.

Original Correspondence. THE REASON WE DO NOT REPAIR OUR DISABLED SHIPS. [To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 30 May 1857

OriginaIl ~rresp0oldclnce. THE REASON WE DO NOT REPAIR OUR, DISABLED SHIPS. STo the Editor of the WVILLLIASTOWN CuinoNrCLe.] SIa,-The shipwrights of this colony have often been asked why it is they cannot rep rth. d abbel teat which is charged in Sydney. The people of Victoria can be supplied with labour and materials equally as cheap as are the people of New South Wales, and why is it, we are asked, the formnner can not compete with the latter? A vessel (the ship Tudor) is now lying in HIobson' Bay in a disabled state. She has been inspected by certain gentlemen from Sydney, who have intimated their ability to perform the necessary repairs at one-third less than the cost would be if the vessel was repaired in this port, and the question again asked is, how is it pos sible that they can do so ? I think I can without much difficulty answer these ,udestions plainly and satisfactorily. The materials, especially the timber for spars, cost from 100 to 150 per cent. more in Melbourne than...

The Williamstown CHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, May 30th. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 30 May 1857

CHRONICLE. WILLIAMSTOWN, Saturday, Mlay 30th. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM. THiosE of our readers who are old -enough to recollect five-and-twenty years ago, will re member, that in the. year, 1882 there were rejoicings over the.-length and breadth bf Great Britain. On the 7th of June in that year the Reform' Bill' obtained the royal assent; and illuminations, bonfires, proces sions, and feastings, such as had seldom been witnessed before, testified to the general glad ness at the successful issue of a struggle which, during the ten years preceding, had shaken the empire to its centre. Far back in he history of our native country the progress of reform 'principles 'may be traced-as far back as the times of the Saxon Witenagemot, and there is no more interesting study than to follow the tiny rill along the course and ob serve its sure. and steady swell and increase. From the year 1770 to 1830 greater progress was made than during any earlier period ; and some of the events that marked the re...
