FATHER GILES OF BALLYMOY. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
FATHER GILES OF 3BALLYMOY. (Contiaiwd from our ast.,) Hlow long I had slept when I was awakened, I never knew. But it was at some hour in the dead of night, when I was disturbed by footsteps in my room, and on jumping up, I saw a tall, stout, elderly man standing with his back towards me, in the middle of the room, brushing his clothes with the utmost care. His coat was still on his back, and his pantaloons on his legs; but he was most as siduous in his attention to every past of his body which he could reach. I sat upright, gazing at hhim, as I thought then, for ten minutes,--we will say that I did so perhaps for forty seconds,-and of one thine' I became perfectly certain,-namely, that tihe clothes brush was my own ! " Sir," said I, speaking very sharply, with the idea of startling him, "what are you doin?g here, in this chamber ?" "'Deed, then, and I'm sorry I've waked ye, my boy," said the stout gentleman. " Will you have the goodness, sir, to tell me what you are doing here ?" "...
AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
A G R I' U L T URiA L. Ti dcrops continue to look well,' and very mainy farmers are so elated with their pros peets of an abundant yield, that they ignore i the teaching of the old proverb, that " There is many a slip "'Twixt the cup and the lip;" And say, " My crop is safe, nothing can hurt it; I shall get forty bushels, at least, from that crop," We quoted last week the opinion of the :yqus that " nothing that could now happen would seriously aflfect the crops." The Age, of the 3rd instanut, however, says that, on the weather of the next six weeks everything will depend. We give the ex tract :--" The crops, with but trilling ex ceptions, are more promising than for several seasons past, and, with favourable weather for harvest, a good yield, of good quality, may be confidently expected. We cannot, however, close our eyes to the fact that on the weather of the next six weeks everything will depend. Continued moisture, or the occurrence of damp weather about the end of the month wou...
CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
ORRE8 PONDENOE. [FWe are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] To the .Editor of the ,?Express. Sin.-It appears that, according to the legal rendering of the Local Government Act by your contemporary, backed by the opinion of a Melbourne barrister, Road Boards have no power to alter or amend the valuation, either before or after the striking of the rate; so that, whatever mistakes may be made by the Valuers (from incompetency, or any other cause), no remedy is open to the ratepayers or the Board but the law. The 189th clause has, therefore, no meaning, and must have been inserted merely fbr the purpose of misleading Road Boards and Shire Councils, and not to assist theni in arriving at a fhir and equitable valuation of the property in their respective districts. Well, Sir, I beg to differ from those distinguished legal luminaries; and, to con vince any one who is able or willing to under stand the English language, I will, with your permission, quote the...
VITALITY IN GRAIN.— [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
VITALITY IN GRAIN.--A farmer's wife in Maine, now upwards of seventy years of ago, is stated to have proved by actual experiment, how long the germinating principle in corn would continue sound and good. She selected at nice sound ear of corn, and planted a f.;w kernels from it every year for thirty years. Every year for twenty.nine years the corn grew and flourished, but the thirtieth year it failed to come up or sprout. "John Chinunan has boon throee months in his now gardon," remarks the P'astoral Times, " and alroady hlie has lettuces, cabbages, spring onions, &c., for sale. 110 sank it well on the river bank, and runs water along the surface to his toneco, to the great delight of the numerous goats in the locality, which drink of the water as it rnus along. Englishmen say the shortest distance between two given points is a straight line. John thinks dilfercntly; his canal winds and turns like the course of ia river, and he has saved a considerable amount of lasbour ther...
BIGAMY EXTRAORDINARY.— [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
BIGAMY EXTRAORDINARY.-'The Ararac Advertisor gives a very full and particular account of a case which has recently taken place in that neighbour. hood. It appears that a Mr. John William Knight arrived in that district, and after a time obtained an appointment as engineer to the Canton Gold Mining Company. It was not long before, accord. ing to the report, "came the desire to take to his matured affections a wife, in whose society he hoped to forget the drudgery of his calling, and reap the reward of steady industry around the domestio altar he contemplated erecting amongst us." Clarissa Augusta Colley was the name of the young lady whose attractions allured, and whose consent to become Mrs. Knight, overjoyed this gay Lothario. This young lady is 18 years of ageo, and has a younger sister, who had the first refusal of John William Knight, but no amount of persuasion could induce her to link her fate for life with a man of fifty; not even a joint interest in the £2000 which her lover...
THE PRICE OF BREAD. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
THE PRICE OF BREAD. To tho Editor of theo Express. Sn---A letter appeared in last Saturday's Guardian, signed "Titus Ontes" "complaining of "an act on the part of a baker which is really unaccountable to his ideas of business," As I am, doubtless, the baker thus referred to, I trust you will allow me space to reply to the writer of that letter; for I suppose that, although the editor of the Guardian will not allow " any consideration but truth to influence his exertions," he as not entirely monopolised the right to judge what is truth and what is thlsehood. According to say ideas of business, I mu at pertect liberty to sell my goods-us other tradcssmen are-at such pi'ices as I think prdper; and I should not write to you now were my object merely to justify myself in charg'i? a particular sum fbr bread; but as the statements of " Titus Oates" are intended to injure my business, I dlesire to answer them. It is true that for a dlay or two during last week my price per 41b. loaf at Melt...

To the Editor of the Bacchus Marsh Express. SIu-Through the medium of your oolumus, I beg to call attention to the state of the ditches in Ballan. Since the late floods they have bnecome filled with stagnant water, mixed with decom. posing animal and vegetable matter. I have no doubt that the serious epidemic of malignant scarlatina we had here during the winter months was greatly propagat.oe by inattontion to proper drainago. As a physician, I should advise the ditches to be clearod out once a month at any rato during the warm weather, to prevent an outbreak of cholera or dysentery, of which diseases there has been lately a threatoning here. Yours, &e., P. FAIRmAImN, M.D. Ballan, 5th November, 1866.

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
BALLAN, (rROot OUR OWN CORtSPONDrNT,) I An sorry to inform you that, on Tuesday last, about ten o'clock, a serious acoldent happened to our old and respected friend, t. J. M'Clelland, licensed draper, whilst his two horses and spring. cart were standing at a friend's door on the Jim Crow Road. Whilst Mr. M'Clelland was attending on some ladies, the horses took fright, but, before getting well off, their owner was clinging to their head. In a short time the cart cameno in contact with a tree, and over wont cart, horses, and M'Clelland. But the latter, more hurt than frightened, still kept his hold of the reins; but, after another desperate turn over, the two horses broke away, and with the cart and goods went through the bush, "over the hills and far away." Mr. M'Clelland was seriously bruised and cut about the body, and had one deep laceration on the leg. It is a matter of wonder how he escaped with his life. "DoEs Ballan stand upon an undeveloped gold. field P" My answer is-" Yes."...

THE Bacchus Marsh Express. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1866, Wf make no apology for returning so soon to the important subject of telegraphic com munication between Bacchus Marsh and the metropolis. The urgent necessity of this means of slpeedy communication, if we are not to be for ever kep' in our present isolated position, we have already fully pointed out. The other want to which we alluded is one which is perhaps even more felt-namely, a daily postal 'delivery of letters at the houses and places of. business of the residents in the township. We group thesettwo things together because they are. very much alike, belong to the same Governmental department, and are usually managed throughout the colony by thle same officials. Is there any reason why we should for a longer period be deprived of two such boons ? *We think not. Unlike many of the projects which have from time to time engrossed the attention of those interested in the progress and prosperity of these districts, they are comparatively in expensive. An...
