YEA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 22 December 1877

YEA. ---t- (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT). The Welcome Reel, at the Tea-tree, has had another good crushing, 72 tons of quartz yielded nearly as many ounces of retorted gold. Referrinr to the remarks of " Ilonesty," in a recent issue re the Yea Cricket Club's debts, I have been Informed by theo hon. secretary that the members forming the new club were in no way connected with that of the former, and cannot be held responsible for its liabill. ties. It was a very shabby trick nt.t to have paid Mrs Marshall for the crieketing materials purchased, but that lady is to blame for allowing an account to stand out over four years, and in not insisting on payment while the club that incurred the expenditure was in existence. A month ago a man named Wylie sued tlhe Shire Council for £13. and obtained an order for the amount, with costs. At last meeting some discussion arose respecting this order, wihes Wylie. who had been waiting for the cashi, under the excitement of the moment, cried our, "Ye are...

A STREET NUISANCE. (To the Editor of the Standard.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 December 1877

A STREET NUISANCE. (To the Editor of the Standard.) Sin,-With your permission I wish to call the attention of the inspector of nuisances (if thero be such an official in existence) to an intolerable nuisance which for some time past has existed right in our midst. I refer to the cattle, dogs, and geese which are allowed to roam after dark through the streets of the townlhip. A friend of mine informed ino that the other night whilst riding along I)owney street, near IlHarker's butcher shop, a couple of dogs ran out and laid hold of .his horse's heels, causing the animal to plunge violently. At the post.otllie another mcmiber of the canine species tried its utmost to block the way; whilo further on, in thl middle of the street, a flock of geese were camped for the night, and seemed in no way inclined to get out of the road, preferring to be ridden over rather than miove to one Aide or the other. lhy informant also states that several times whilst riding young horses along this thiroln...

RAILWAY COMMUNICATION. (7o the Editor of the Standard.) Sin,-I was glad to notice in your last issue a letter Irom "Lillydale and IIcalsville " relative to railway communication up thn valley of the Yarra, and I hlop that it will not be lost sight of by the residents of the Upper Goulhurn Valley, as there is no doubt that is the cheapest and nearest, and, also a route that will serve not the best district only, but by far the largest number of in habitants, besides opening a new country that would not be available without a line of rail way running through it.-Yours, &e., OH.

THE SHIRE COUNCILLORS. (To the Editor of the Standard.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 December 1877

THE SHIRE COUNCILLORS. (To the Editor of the Standard.) SIn,-It would be very amusing, were not it slightly nauseating, to observe the air of superiority which eome members of our Shire Council assume over their fellow councillors on the ground of having received a superior education. A university eduontion is doubt less a good thing in its way, and most essential for a professor of medicine, law, divinity, &e., but it will not compensate a man for the lack of brains or common sense. Itis not requisite for the full understanding of the Loeol Government Act ; neitlher will the want of it prevent a man of mental power, good business capabilities, and a knowledge of the world, from making and maintaining a position in society. 'Tlhese qualifications, 1Mr Editor, combined with integrity and honesty, are what we require in our representatives, and possessing these we can very well dispense with the flimsy boast of a university educa tion. It is not likely that many of the coun ci...

WAR IN TIHE EAST. We are indebted to our Melbourno contem poraries for the following extracts: LoNDON, 20th Dec. The opening of Parliament on the 17th of January is confirmed. The Standard states that the Ministry will then propose an increase to the British army. Other Conservateve journals openly declare that in German support to Russia lies the real danger to British interests. 22nd Docember. The London papers, with the exception of the Times, agree with the Ministry's demand for a vote for military preparations. The Turkish fortresses forming the quad rilaternal in Bulgaria are to be lh:t to defend themsr lees.

BOXING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 December 1877

BOXING DAY. This day was not kept by our local tradesmen as a close hoilday, bult the town wore a very dull appearance, and we would imagine they would have lost very little by giving their employees the holiday. The only excitement on the tapls was the anniverairy tea meeting of the Itechabites. liheir ordinary anniversary is generally held about a couple of months earlier, but on this occasion it had been postponed so that efforts might eto mde to get the lecturer for the order, Mr Meckay, to vi.it the town and deolver a lecture. He could not be secured, and it was consequently decided to celebrato tihe nniversary with a tell meeting and concert, which was held in the State school, The tea commoeced at seven o'cloct, the tables being presided over Iby tie following Isdies:-1Mesdumes Silinman, Milroy, Lonr, Johnson. aid Misses Annie and Eva Stlltnan, Johnson, Boyce, and S.

A WOMAN ACCIDENTALLY SHOT BY HER HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 December 1877

A WOMAN ACCIDENTALLY SHOT BY HER HUSBAND. On Sunday afternoon, between 5 and 6 o'clock a sad accident happened near the railway station, Yarraville, by which a middle-aged woman named Smith lost her life through the carelessness of her husband. It appears that Smith had some friends visiting the house during the day, and when his wife was about getting tea prepared, Smith was engaged in one corner of the room show ing a loaded revolver to his friends. Without any warning, by some means one of the chambers went off, and the charge entered the left breast of the unfortunate woman, who immediately expired without saying one word. Dr. Morton, of Footscray, was quickly on the spot, but his services were of no avail, the shot having penetrated the lungs. Smith was arrested and lodged in the lock-up by Senior-constable Fowler. A pos8 mortern and inquest was held on Monday, and the jury, without retiring, brought in a verdict that deceased was accidentally shot by her husband. Smith was at ...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. FARM WORKI F?OR JANUARY. A?TlnAln A LINCOLrNI's lIONTIILY REPORT. -Preparations for the growth of next season's crops ought to receive the filrmer's attention this month. Next year's success depends greatly upon the use made of the time between harvest and sowing. Scarifying or harrow ing thile paddocks, immediately after clearing off the crops, is now the plan adopted by the more practical of our farlmers. 'This opera tion ought to allect the surface fully three inches deep, and be sufnicient to encourage the growth of all weed seeds ; it will also produce a fine tilth, andi prevent the soil tromn baking and cracking under the heat ; It will also prevent evaporation, and permit early ploughing and early sowing. With the large quantity of new ground which has been turned up to fallow in the recently taken up areas, it will, perhaps, be found sufficient to feed off the weeds as they grow : a good har rowing or scarifying in this case would be better than a second ...
