FATHER GILES OF BALLYMOY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 3 November 1866
FATHER GILES OF BALLYMOY. (Frno "TEE ARGosY,") IT is nearly thirty years since-I, Archibald Green, first entered the little town of Bally moy, in the west of Ireland, and became ac qunisnted with one of the honestest fellows and best Christains whom it has ever been my good fortune to know. For twenty years he and I were fast friends,-though he was much my.elder. IIns he has now been ten years beneath the sod, I may tell, the'itory of our first meeting. Ballyomy is a so oalled town,-or was in the days of which I am speaking,-lying close to the shores of Lough Corrib, in the county Galway, It is on the road to no place, and, as the end of a road, has in itself nothing to attract a traveller, Tlie scenery of Lough Corrib is grand,-but the lake is very large, and the fine scenery is on the side opposite to Ballymoy, and hardly to be reached, or even seen from that place. There is fishing, but it is lake fislung. The salmon fishing' of Lough Corrib is far away from Ballymoy, were the li...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 3 November 1866
NEWS OF THE WEEK. At the Road Board meeting held on Saturday last, the opinion of 3Mr. G. P. Smith, barrister, was read upon the case submitted to him by the Board in reference to their power to alter the valuation of the rateable property in the district as made by the Valuers. The opinion will be found in our report of the Board's proceedings in another column. As it condemns the action already taken by the Road Board, that body will I meet on Monday next (the 5th instant), to discuss a motion confirming the valuation as originally , made by Messrs. G. Grant and A. Gardiner, the Valuers. The warm weather during the early part of the week appears to have caused a re-appearance of snakes, for we are informed that a son of Mr. 1 Lowe, of Korkuperrimul Creek, observed a snake about three feet long, and of a grey colonr, basking on the road at Stamford Hill, on Monday morning lass. Our readers will, therefore, have to exercise caution while traversing localities likely to be freqnontod...
AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 3 November 1866
- GRI ULTURA L. EVERY newspaper in the colony contains glowing accounts of the alinost unprecedent edly: favourable appearance of crops of all kindes.t present, and the forthcoming har vest :ci scarcely fail to be a superabundant oin, The Argus, of the 26th ult., says: ''Such a prospect of abundance no one remembers in any previous October, and so advanced are the crops that nothing that could, now happen would seriously affect them. The ravages of rust and grub are quite inconsiderable." The Australasian, however, reports that " the f'arm pests-the grub and the cnterpillar--are unfortunately at work thus early. A. word or two may be said on some modes of preventing the ravages of these destructive insects, By digging or ploughing a trench round the boundaries of a paddock, the caterpillars can be entrapped, and if the sides of the trench are plumb, they cannot crawl out again if once they get to the margin and fall in. With respect to the grub, the case is more difficult ; they are...

DR. OTWAY'S LECTURE. To the Editor of the Bacchus Marsh Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 3 November 1866
DR. OTWAY'S LECTURE. To the Editor qf the Bacchus Marsh Express. DE.AR Sin-Reading in last week's .L,np'ess. a report of the lecture given by Dr. Otway, I see your reporter did not mention the caution he gave the people of Blackwood against slanderiing all who conic among them. If there were more such true men, slanderous reports could soon be put down : When, by night, the frogs are croaking, Kindle but a taper's fire; Ha! how; soon they all are silent! Thus Truth rile:Žcs the Liar. One, at least, of the Dctor' audience thanks him siicerely for his kindness aud bravery. It. takes a brave matuo to speak the truth, when lying seems the order of the day. in petty slander there is nothing said that one can imake them prove; as the Doctor saidl, " It is the whisper, the smile. and sneer," and a per?on's charntter was black cued. It seems very easy to whisper away an honest name, and would require a very gentle spirit to be able to say, " Father, forgive them, for they know not what tha:...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] THE LATE FATAL ACCIDENT AT THE TOOLAM-TOOLAREM CREEK. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 3 November 1866
CO RESP0 N DENCE. (We are not rc*ponmil for the opinion erprened by our corepondents.) THE LATE FATAL ACCIDENT AT THE TOOLA3I-TOOLARE3I CREEK. To the Editor of the E.xpress. Si.--During the floods which visited this colony some three weeks ago, it will be re membered that a young man named Kenneth Mfills was drowned in crossing the Toolum toolarem Creek, whilst endeavouring to cross it at the bridge erected to give access to this township. Now, any person looking at this bridge cannot but be struck with the fact, that it is so peculiarly placed over the creek, and so totally unsurrounded by fenced approaches, that it must be extremely difficult to find on a dark night. I trust tlamt some member of the Melton Road Board will see fit to propose that a sum of money be speedily voted to defiray the cost of securely fencing-in both banks of the creek for some distance on either side of the bridge, and so do all that is possible to prevent travellers from missing the proper road.-I am, &a...
