A NEGLECTED GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 5 May 1870
A NEGLEOTED oG&A8? (From the 'American Country Gentleman.') That the cook's-foot or orchard grass (Dactylis glomerata) will be more prized in the future than now there is no doubt in the mind of the writer. is a grass that has many points, and all good. It is the one great general grass, the points of wnich one would aim at if a model grass were to be bred, as we speak of cattle. It is the earliest of the grasses, com* inj as soon as the snow leaves or the sun shines; indeed, it may be said to be green under the snow a fodder the year round. It has this tenaci'y of its green state, which it best :preserves by being kept abort-fed off-green the year through, or from the earliest to the latest of the season, affording a pasture two weeks in advance of other grasses. This is a point that cannot be overlooked, especially when we consider ti at this grass forms a sod so dense, dry, and elevated, that tl:e earliest tramping will not hurt it and it will keep this greennems weeks la...

iitatoie lrrt t IaPse PotLIaHBD THU?sPA i" TORNING. THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1870. SALE OF SPIlRITS. THERE is scarcely any subject upon which we feel such an acute interest as the law re lating to the sale of spirituous liquors, and we hail with the utmost satisfaction the pror bability that it will ere long receive the attention of our legislatos.; BAubjeeo of each vital, importance to the gelieral comr munity must, we are aware, draw forth strong arguments both for and ag iurtf 4 to such arguments, "and a thordugh ventilation of existing systems both here ahd elsewhere, we look for the groundwork of such a law as must of necessity be as improvement upon the present one, and therefore conducive to the welfare of the 'public, When we bear in mind the arduous nature of the task to? frame a wise law to regulate the sale of liquors in the country, and the almost moral impossibility of bringing within the pale of any enactment a certain class of spurious vendors who prey upon the public to an a...

WRECK OF THK WALTER HOOD.. ----~---L LOSS OF ELJEVEN LIVES. From the Sydney afternoon telegram we take the following particulars of the wreck of the Walter Hood unear Ulladclla, on the Sydney coast, on Saturday morning last. The Walter Hood left London for Sydney in January last, and had on board as pass engers two gentlemen of the name of Smith and one named Haynes. She was driven ashore on Tuesday night near Cape Jarvis lighthruse, but was not seen until the folb lowing morning. The vessel was then broken amidships. Thirteen were hanging on. to the stern of the vessel, and eleven others were washed away and lost--among them Captain Latto, the master-and ten passengers reached the land. On. Friday morning two men attempted to take a line to the ship, but failed, in consequence of the high surf.

FAT CATTIL':-The arrivals for the week were 1,022 head, one half of which consisted of Rood' quality from Gipps Land, and the others Northern cattle, of snied qualities. There was a good attend ance of buyers; and as the metropolitan trade bought very sparingly last week (on account of Easter holi, days), the competition was brisk throughout, e-pecially towards the close of the market, when inferior to medium sold at a slight advance. As the Lent is now over, and cooler weather setting in, we expect present prices will be well maintained, vis, 251 per 200 Ibs for the top pens; medium beef, from 17 64d to 20s : or say, brat bullocks, £9. to £10 ; good do, £8 to £8 10s medium, £6 10s to £7 104; heat cows L7 12s 6d to L8 2s 6d ; good do £6 to L,7.

THE FIJI ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 5 May 1870
THE FIJI ISLANDS. The private advices received by Mr Finner in regard to the cotton cultivation in Fiji are of the most encouraging nature. It appears that the Sea Island variety can be grown at 91 per lb (ill expenses paid), and fetches in the Liverpool market 4s; de ducting 3] epensees on frei..ht, insurance, brokerage, &o. it thus leaves a net profit of 3' per lb. Here then is the f:ld for colonial enterprise for the Victorians who cunnot get along and make a living in this colony. It is understood that the Polynesia Com pany will shortly setablish direct steam communica tion between Melbourne and Fiji, in conjunction with the new line of steamers from Sydney to San Fran, cisoo. The Springbok, despatched b_ Messrs Dodd and Thomson, and Mlesars Matthews, who are largely intera ed. in the Polynesia Company, took her departure yesterday far Levuka, fully filled with peassongers, stock, and freight.

Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 5 May 1870
The usual meeting of the committeeoof the Mechanics' Institute was held on Friday evening last-the President (Mr W. Davis) occupying the chair. It was decided that steps should be taken to get up a series of popular readings for this season, and with that view it was resolved that those of the general public desirous of co-operating with the movement should be invited, through the Free Press, to meet the committee, on to morrow (Friday) evenin, in the hall. A few small accounts were passed for payment, and. the meeting was brought to a close. "There is many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip" is an old saying, the truth of which was exemplified during the past week in this district. A gay widower, who had not waited anything like the orthodox period of twelve months after consigning his late wife to her last rest, profiting no doubt by experience, was successful in captivating a fair damsel who agreed to become his "for better or worse." The intended bridegroom came into Kilmore the ...
