MANGLED NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 21 July 1866
MANGLED NEWS. FRO\ CHt[AItiRaus's JOUINAL. T? I wore American in my idens, I might ask, which was the number of the " Ieacon" whose loaders oaused such intense political discussion throughout continental Europe ? But I have not sopowerful a sweep of imnagination as Martin Chuzzlowit's friend, Colonel Diver; and theorefore I will very modestly prosmne that it is not every body who has had the good-fortune to road the well-condensed and carcfully.epilomised home, foreign, and colonill news contained in that bright star of Australasia, the " Buirrahurry Ileacon," The schoolmaster is said to be abroad, but it is doubtful whether in his foreign travels he has ever crossed that immense t.ract of pastoral land which lios between Adelaido and the town and district in question. To be truthful, the name did not exist in any other than rough Australian maps at the thun I speak of; but the days are fast, pproachlng when from the proud eminence whore, looking across the mighty - , But there ; I ...
SKETCHES FROM BLACKWOOD. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 21 July 1866
SKETCHES FROM BLACKWOOD. No. I. The route to Blackwood diverges from the main Ballarat road, at the rising village of Myrniong The means of conveyance being by coach, which, in conjunction with the Ballarat line, con veys the mail daily to Blackwood. For the first few miles the road leads through the rich agricul- tural lands of Mount Blackwood, and through the magnificent estates of Messrs. Hamilton and Shuter, at Greendale. The traveller enters upon the mountainous country, by passing up through a long defile in the hills, known as Long Gully, formerly the greatest obstacle to carriers on the road; but now (thanks to the Shire Council) a tolerable road has been made up through it; arriving at the summit, the remaining portion of the way is one series of up hills and down gullys, in a thickly timbered forest. Suddenly and abruptly you descend into the valley of the Ler- derderg, and one portion of Blackwood, Golden Point, suddenly bursts into view, The scenery is exceedingly pictur...
BLACKWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 21 July 1866
BLACKWOOD. &nbsp; (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) Your contemporary's leading article of Saturday last, on Education and School Com mittees in particular, is a model specimen of one-sided logic and special pleading, The writer expresses his views with a tone and assurance which would have put the Delphic Oracle to the blush. The ex cathedra style in which he enforces his conmmnents is evi dently intended to ignore all chance of reply, and to cut off any attempt at a parley. Like all fulminations of the kind it abounds in pungent sentences and acrimonious passages. However, like all such documents it is futile and impotent, and, in short, it is neither more nor less than a brutum fulmen, in the strictest sense of the word, "full of sound and fury signifying nothing." That the writer dipped his pen in gall and racked his brain to the very utmost to be- spatter his victims with obloquy, is abun- dantly clear; but whether he has succeeded in effecting his object remains to be seen.

THE BACCHUS MARSH EXPRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 21, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 21 July 1866
THE BAC00HUS MARSH EXPRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 21, 1800. TIME was when the District Road Board of Bacchus Marsh was looked upon as one of the model Road Boards of the colony. When the present Local Government Act was in troduced by the O'SHANAssY Ministry, the Road Districts then established were ranked as first or second class, according to their area and ratepaying population, and Bacchus Marsh was placed in the first rank; more over, it was confidently expected by all who were acquainted with its wealth and impor tance, that it would be one of the very first districts that would be constituted a shire-a privilege which could only be acceded to those districts ranking in the first class. This was no unreasonable expectation, for the intelli gence and enterprise of the inhabitants of the township and neighbourhood were well known to all who paid any attention to public mat ters. That this expectation has not been rea lised must be admitted, and we are sure that the circumstance is regr...

AGRICULTURAL. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; POULTRY. THEIR SELECTION AND MANAGEMENT. BY A PRACTICAL FARMER. &nbsp; &nbsp; IN my last paper on poultry, I chiefly called attention to the loss sustained by this country in consequence of the large importations of eggs and poultry, which ought and might be mainly roared and provided for by our own population; I also endeavoured to show how this could be done ; I will now follow up the subject more particularly. I lave already saod that the brooding of poultry Slihas attained a high position, and the varieties are as distinrt aunto Short-horned. cattle from Here : fords, or $Siithdown sheep frQp. Long-wools; and lilFothenm, too, they have more or loss peculiar a tlýiplitions for certain purposes, which tlo skill ''f: their graliore has so often proved.

GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 21 July 1866
GREAT MEN. The man who attains to greatness does not do so by one convulsive struggle, but by a series of conflicts, by successive victories and defeats. He proves his qualification or great enterprises by fulfilling duties impropely donomlinated moan. The man who vwaitf for n occasion of greatness, nevor will be groat at-il. Your great man is he who does the duty of the day; that which is nearest to him, howaov insigniflant to others it Imay appear, wlhethert be in goodness or evil. Vast sequenc;; resultrom trifles. A little folly has :oten created wrothedness, disease, and beg gary. A little resolulon has won, within man's own c.ill, victories njro sublime and imperishable thau'thoso of Trafaljar or Waterloo.

MINING REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 21 July 1866
MINING REPORT. The United Company, Nuggety Gully, have cleaned up from their crushing of 90 tons, which yielded 341 ozs. 4½ dwts. of melted gold. This has been a handsome return, enabling the Company to declare a dividend of £182 per man, after all expenses were paid. The number of shareholders being twelve (12), great satisfaction was expressed at the manner in which the engineer at Mr. Pol- glass's machine performed the operation of cleaning up and melting the gold. Sherwood and Co. have crushed the whole of their stone, which turned out well, the result being 50 ozs. The Eight and Two have crushed at Mr. Pol- glass's machine, the yield from which was con- sidered very good. The Alma Company, Blue Mountain, have at present stopped their works, for the purpose of putting down a set of pump lifts, which they have purchased from the Robin Hood claim, Barry's Reef, the water at present being too much for the whim. The Amelia Company, at the James place, are crushing some very good sto...

Od. per bushel, LAnouR MIRKET.--Mr. Elderton reports that there is little or no change in the labour market since last week, and but very few of any class of servants have met with engagemonts. The late arrivals, over 600, by the ships India and Notherby, will make the market in Melbourne extremely heavy for some time; and to show how little demand there is, out of nearly 200 female servante for hire at the depot from the ship Indis, only 80 were engaged on the first day of hiring, when formerly most of the 200 would have been engaged at once. A few ploughmen, and superior upper. class fenmale servants, have mnct with engagements, but the demand is most limited, and will continue so for about two months more. No change in wages.
