THE HOTHAM HILL CABS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 29 January 1874
THE HOTHAM HILL CABS. Very great complaints are made about the irregular time these cabs keep in starting. A short time ago a gentleman waited at the Post Office from 3.50 to 14.50, and during that time only one cab passed to go to the HI-ill, and two passed coming .froamit. On mentioning it to the cabman he gave as a reason that at that particular time of the day the cabbies were feeding their horses and taking a spell. This should not be. These cabs have not become of great service on this line of road, the traffic on which will eventually become very great, and it is a pity the cab men do not see that it is to their interests to foster it as much as possibleby regular departures from the stations.
EDUCATIONAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 29 January 1874
EDUCATIONAL. *When the new Education Act came into force if was always expected that the changes it would involve in the working of thoedepartment would for a time cause some confusion and iuconveoionco in many localities. We have now had the act in force over twelve months, and the time of chaos should now be ended and order ought to reign supreme in` its 'ad ministration. A glance at the state of the schools in Brunswick will show how far woe are, off so desirable a position in that borough. One of the intentions of the now- act was to lessen the number of schools. The department has cer tainly accomplished that by one only. In the. Brunswick district we have the Common School, belonging to the Presbyterians closed, together with tthe Infant School, belonging to the Church of England, of Phillipstown ; but we have, notwithstanding, fivre different buildings occupied for educational purposes' and subsidised by the State. By the closing of the South-west, Schools the whole of West -...

LARRIKINISM IN HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 29 January 1874
LdAJRiX1NISI IN IIOTHAM. The larrikin nuisance is spreading in Hotham. On Sunday evenings, during church hours, the rowdy element is especially objectionable, and the most filthy and disgusting language is indulged in public thoroughfares. Then again pro perty suffers from the depredations of these young blackguards. The English and Scottish Bank is the latest example of this. The larrikins object to banks, and whenever one is newly painted they are pretty sure to deface it by casting mud or filth against the building. This happened to the Scottish Bank, and entailed con. siderable trouble, loss, and annoyance to the painter, Mr. O'Shea. The police are not very numerous in Hotham, and cannot be expected to exercise a strict surveilanco in every part of the borough, but their effrts to preserve peace would be much more efficient if the citizens infrmed them of the names of the offenders and the locality where our city arabs perpetrate their rascality.
BRUNSWICK CABS. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 29 January 1874
• ?RUNSWICK CABS. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-In a former number of the Adver tiser Mr. Wilson blows hard in behalf of his brethren of thb whip. I am glad to learn that ho is so far in advance of his ,class as already to have initiated. several decided improrcments in tho Sydney road cabbing system. As our sympathies app car to ow in the same channel we will not quarrel, though we do not see exactly alike. We have onrie object, viz., to promote the welfare of the passengers who liberally support the forty cabs which work the Sydney road traffic. Allow me to brush on one side the rubbish that we mnst pay high fares tcausoe these men spend their earnings hero. In the first place this is not true, and if it really was the ease do not the passengers on this line also support the tradesmen, and if fgres were lower they could spend more with them. Allow me to ask this gentlemian if their cabs are made in lBrunswick, or is their harnpss made there; whlere do they got their horses,...
NOTES OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 29 January 1874
NOTES OF THE WEEK. That the lIon. Henry Parkes, Premier of Neow South Wales, is a clover man, few who know him will be disposed to deny; but there are times and seasons when he is a good deal too clever, and his actions at such times appears more like underhand scheming than any manly cleverness; and many interesting anec dotes could be recorded of his schemes and stratagems, indeed his little dodge in ro the tobacco question is another specimcn of the ways and means he adopts to get on in this bustling world. Some months ago when Messrs. Cameron and- Dunn leased the extensive premises in Liverpool street Sydney, known as the Sugar Works, and at great expense transformed them into a tobacco factory, they advertised in all the daily papers for suitable men and boys, and took other steps that would indicate that they purposed carrying on the mano facture of tobacco on a very largo scale. Peoplb asked one another, " where was a market to be found for such large quantities of manufactur...

Both of the representatives' of the district of North Melbourne attended on the occasion of laying the foundation stone of the Trades' Hall in Carlton, on: Monday. One of these gentle "men- Mr. John Curtain - appeared there in the capacity of a . worker -of a useful man performing the important' but pleasing duty of encouraging the growth of a noble institution, 'which will reflect credit upon the district.

Mr. Buft, on the contrary, .~sat severely calm and 'collected during -::Lthe proceedings, 'and what he did say --had ery little in it.

THE SOUTHERN RAILWAY LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 29 January 1874
THIE SOUTIHERN RAILWAY LEAGUE. Our readers will have noticed the re port in the daily papers of the interview our southern neighbors had on Tuesday last with- the lion. the Commissioner of Railways to urge on that gentleman the desirability of purchasing the Hobson's Bay Company's lines. The reason assigned for their efforts in this direction was the extraordinary activity of the Outer Circle Railway League to have the northern and eastern suburbs and the city connected with the iron road. The arguments ad duced in favor of the purchase were cer tainly of a peculiar character, and Mr. Gillies, in reply, seems to have his eyes opened through the pertinacity of his in terviewers: The fact is they said too much, and clearly indicated that the railway if purchasedwould besimplya largeo political machine for the purpose of reducing the Government to the level of expediency, and whenever' the purchase is made the expenditure of public money only com mences. The Commissioner estimates that...

Correspondence. TO COUNCILLOR LAURENS. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-Although I have not the pleasure of your personal anetuaintanco I have studied your proceedinugs in public and have no heinous complaint against you. But Sir I think in your recent discussion with Councillor Carroll, wherein you of fered to gie away £2000 if he would do certain things whioch you alleged he could not do, you displayed a certain amount of bitterness which I thought you froee from. If you havo been bles sod with abundance, and can spare so largo an amount as £2,000 for an insig nificant object, surely Sir you might con tribute at least a small portion of that amount towards the sacred cause of charity. In ?iotham-in the very district you ro present-there are many deservingobjects of benevolence, many old and helpless people who Isvould be benefitted by tie receipt of a little Assistance, or better still -there is the Bienevolent Asylum of which yoenhve a thorough knowlcdge-that is sadly. in wan...

HOTHAM COURT. MONDAY, 26th JANUARY. A Larrikiness.--Mary Rohan, a lady who honors Hotham by her residence, was charged with stealing a hat from the person of Jane Miller, the property being valued at 25s. It appears that Mary in &nbsp; company with one of her pals, went out on the 25th inst. to take a walk in Bourke street, and met on the same fashionable parade the prosecutrix in company with another lady residing in Stephen street. An old grievance cropped up, and the two Hothamites attacked the two Melbourn- ites, tore their clothing to shreds, and de- camped with Jane's hat and comb. They were followed by the latter's male friends, and Mary was arrested with the property in her possession. She was charged with larceny, but the charge sheet was altered by the bench from larceny into insulting behavior, and then discharged her with a caution. INSULTINaG EHlVIOvo.-Joseph Black and Alice Buchanan were charged with insulting behavior in a public place. The defendants were l...
