AGRICULTURAL. CLOVER HAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 27 October 1866
AGRICULTURAL. CLOVER LHAY. WV: have, for some years past, advocated the cutting of clover for hay.nt an earlier stage of its progress than is common in this country. The usual indication of fitness for the scythe is the browning of the blossoms to the extent of one-half or two-thirds; but it is by no means uncommon to leave it, under press of other work, much beyond those points. The consequence is, too great hardening of the woody stems, and a great and incurable damage done the quality of the hay by the rotting of the lower leaves. These fill the hay with that impalpable dust so distressing to horses, and, highly nutritious and valuable as otherwise it would be. makes it unfit food for them. We have urged, therefore, the harvesting of the crop when it has come pretty well into flower, without fiurther delay. That this is the proper period fur cutting, we may take a hint from the bees and other insects. When they begin to operate on the clover blossoms, it is a sign that sugar has ...

SATURDdY, OTOBRE 27, 1800. SELECTION before survey is now an accoI* plished fact in Viotoriu; and yet, as was otter predicted by many of those whose interest it was to keep up the old order of things, antd by others who believed it would lead to no thing short of anarchy and confusion, we have had no red revolution; the change has been effected in the most orderly manner, and the principles of WILSON GRAY fully vi?. dicated, We can remember when such prin. ciples were scouted by those who thought nothing but the auction system, pure and simple, would ever be carried out in th64 country. Had the principles honestly and intelligently advocated by Mr. GRAY been noted upon years ago, there can hardly be doubt that the population would have ere now been doubled. In saying this we do not complain of the progress made since the foim,* dation, if we may so speak, of the colony; but we feel assured that nothing but easy access to the waste lands of the colony will attract a proper class of i...

Able addresses were delivered by the Rev. Messrs. Lambie, Sabine, and James, and Captain _M'Callum.

BALLAN. (FROM, OUR COIRtESPON?DENT.) FREAK oF N1ATUIIE,--On Tuesday last, Dr. Fairbairn handed to ume a full description of a child that was born on on Sunday afternoon, the 21st, in Bullarook Forest. 'The descri1. tion was accompanied by a drawing of the child after its birth, The Doctor says :-" The child was still-born. The nurse, being alarmed at the unusual applnranc of the head, sent for me. On examination, 1 told the parents that the infint could not possibly have lived, as there was no cerebrum. The only trace I could make out was a rudimentary cerebellum, Otherwise the child was well formed. I found, instead of.brain matter, that the interior of the skull was filled up with a red fungus-like mass. The ',eneral appearance of the head was as thoug one had taken a knife and cut a slice extending from the eye-brows horizon tally to the back part of the cranium." The Doctor also informs me that such cases are of rare occurrence, and worthy the attention of the medical faculty. W...

SELECTED POETRY. UNDER THE MOON. Under the moon as the twilight breeze Ripples the water in pulses of light, We stand on the bridge of the sycamore trees, And list to the voices that float through the night: Under the elm row, misty and dark, Murmurs of melody rise from the bank, Sprinkled with many a dim red lamp: Hark! mid the foliage blossomed with June Tinkles a serenade under the moon. Under the moon in the village street, Gossiping groups in the shadows meet; Seated at dusky doorways there, Red-lipped maidens taste of the air: Whispering now of their lovers' eyes, &nbsp; Blue as the beautiful summer skies; Whispering now of their flatteries sweet, As autumn's fruitage dropp'd in the heat; Until they cadence a trembling tune, Soft as their pulses, under the moon. Under the moon on the cool sea shore The wind walks over the spacious floor, Kissing the snowy bosom'd sails, Daintily dipping through azure veils, And over the crisp foam bearing along The musing mariner's mid...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 3 November 1866
SATURDAY, N'OEMBER 3, 1868. Tax late election of a member of the Legis lative Council for the South-Western Pro vince, has served to illustrate very strongly the isolated position which Bacchus Marsh, Maddingley, Ballan, and other townships in their vicinity, occupy in relation to the metropolis, owing to the absence of a speedy means of communication with Melbourne. It will be recollected that the result of the election we refer to was dependent for some two days upon the receipt of returns from two of the townships abovenamsed of the number of votes there polled for the re spective candidates; and yet these polling places were amongst the nearest in the province to the head-quarters of the Re turning.Officer. The obvious remedy for such an anomalous state of things is to have a line of electric telegraph extended to Bacchus Marsh, Myrnioug, hBallan, and Blackwood; or to so many of thewe townships. as the exigencies of the route best likely to procure the "greatest good to the grea...
