BLACKWOOD. 7th November, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 10 November 1866

BLACKWOOD, (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT,) 7th November, 1866. A MAGISTERIAL inquiry was held at the Bull and Mouth Hotel, on Saturday night last, by Henry Lawrence, Esq. J.P., touching the death of one Henry Sissen, who was found dead in his hut on the morning of Thursday, the 1st instant. Deceased was spoken to the previous night by a neighbour, and with the exception of a slight cold, was apparently in his usual state of health. It appeared from the depositions that he had been about forty years in the colonies, and that his age was somewhat over sixty-two. He was very retired in his habits, and exhibited certain peculiarities of manner, which bordered upon the eccentric. Dr. Plews made a post mortem examination of the body on Saturday afternoon, and a most unpleasant and dangerous operation it must have been, for decomposition had set in to such an extent that it was one mass of putrefaction. Indeed, so much was this the case, that the Dr. said in his evidence, "having viewed the head...

THE ROAD RANGER. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866

THE ROAD RANGER. ''o t/e .lEditor of th/e o.Ertess. Sr-Wrhat lhas become of the Road R?anger ? Has the liRoad lBoard dispensecd with the ser vices of that tunctionary ? At the present time the roads swar\m with cattle and horses; and if by chance a gate or slip panel is left open, they walk in and takeo possession of the garden, lpaddock, or whatever it may chance to be, and, in many instances, cause serious damage. If it haplpens to be raining, the verandahs become their hfavourite placcs of retrcat. In summer, if there is any water standing near, it has generally disap)peared before the inmates hIave awoke from their slumbers. It is also unslfo to ride or drive along many of the roads after dusk. Such a nuisance slhould not be tolerated by the inhabitants. If the hoard intends to allow cattle to run on the roads, they should call for tenders, and let them to persons who would herd their cattle upon them by day and keep them at home at night.-lI am, &c., Bacchlus Marsh, 13t...

THE WERRIBEE FOOT BRIDGE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866

THI?E WERRIB.EE FOOT BRIDGE. To the Editor of the Exprcss, St--IIHaving occasion lately to cross the River Werribee by thle wooden foot bridge thrown across it at the foot of Crook-street, I found that the steps which the passenger has to ascend and descend at either end of the bridge are vely awkwardly constructed, and are indeed dangerous for anyone (especially women and children) to use. An expenditure of a few pounds in erecting proper steps, and providing handrails, wouldL be a great convenience to the public, who have a right to expect the work to be done. Such handrails, too, might be made to act as supports to tlhe bridge, a by no menus super fluous assistance. There are also se\'eral palings wanted to complete the railing of the bridge itself: Their absence may or may not affect the safe passage of children across the bridge, but certainly the Road Board should give assurance to tile public that their officers supervise the safety of the bridges in the district by never all...

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866

BALLAN, (mos OUI O?N COni?E·seroNDENT,.) I WAS much ploased to read Dr. Fairbairn's letter in last week's Epress upon the sanitary condition of B3allan. The Doctor's long residence and prao. tical experience as physiciuan in the fever hospitals of India qualify him to give valuable opinions on such matters, which I hope the gentlemen com. posing the town council will take into consider ation, and hence push forward the formation of the streets. In order that the drainage may be done before the hot weather sets in, Mr. Kelly (the Shire Engineer), has boon engaged this last fortnight in making the necessary survey and laying out the work. At the last meeooting of the Council he laid upon the table his report thereon, when .250 were voted for the korbing and gravel. ling the footpaths of the township; and I think no false notion of economy should stand in the way of so desirable a sanitary reform, But, Sir, there is another subject of greater importance still, which demands the earnest...

Sn--I would crave your permission to make a feew remarks regarding the action taken by the Bacchus IMarsh and Maddingley Road Board in reference to the valuation of the district. I was led to believe, from the manner in which the matter has been treated in the Guardian, that the Board had been straining the Act for the purpose of in. creasing the revenue without any regard to the equitable settlement of the rate, and I quite agree with your contemporary that such conduct was reprehensible, and ought to be condemned by every ratepayer in the district. Not, however, having very great faith in statements appearing in that journal (the motto to the contrary notwithstanding), I thought it; my duty first to exanmine the returns made by the Valuers, and found, to my surprise, t hat the valuation of eight rateable properties had been increase...

AGRICULTURAL. PIG REARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866

AG RIO ULTURA L. PIG REARING. We give the following article (slightly abridged) from the Weekly Alge, of Nov 10. The probability of pig-feed being over abundant during the couing autumn should induce special attention to this description of stock. Unfortunately, the scarcity of cheap feed during the last two seasons has rendered pigs very hard to obtain, at reasonable rates; but as they multiply quickly there is good reason to expect that by the time the feed has grown, young stores will be forthcoming in tolerable abundance. The demand for store-pigs has for many months past been exceedingly brisk, and though bacon and pork have ruled high, they have not been propor tionately dearer than stores and weaners. The priceof young stores will in all probability rule high in the autumn should root crops prove abundant, but two or three shillings a head is not a breaking matter, and it will be better to pay a rather higher price than to allow the crops to go to waste, Asa general rule, pig...

"And wasn't it too much honour for the likes of ve 1" said one of the women, with infinite :corn in the tone of her voice. " I did use the gentlenman's clothes-brush, certainly," said the priest. They were the first collected words he had spoken, and I felt very grateful to him for them. It seemed to me tha't a man who could condescend to remoam bar that he had used a clothes-brush, could not really be hurt to death, even though he had been pushed down such very steep stairs as those belonging to Pat KIirwan's hotel. "Anl I'm sure you were very welcome, sir," said I. "It wasn't that I minded the clothea-brush. It wasn't, indeed; only I thought,-indeed, I did think that there was only one bed.

THE Bacchus Marsh Express. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866

sATURDAY, NOVEl~BEM 17, 1866. COMrPETITITE exhibitions of industrial pro. ducts are a distinctive feature of the present age, The first grand attempt in this direc. tion was the Exhibition in the Crystal Palace in 1851; and the great success which attended that first industrial tournament has led to similar exhibitions being held in nearly every civilised country in the world. It was a happy idea of the late PnTrcE ALDERT, to whom belongs the honour of originating and carrying out to a successful issue the first great international exhibition, to take advantage of that love of spec. tacular display which is an inherent principle of our nature, and render it subservient to the promotion of the arts of peace and the brotherhood of nations. In former times the curiosity of the multitude was gratified by courtly pageants, royal progresses, Lord FMayor's' shows, exhibitions connected with "the pomp and circumstance of glorious war," or by trials of skill in such exercises as might be ava...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Djerriwarrh toll question is in a fair way of being satisfactorily disposed of in a very short time. At the Road Board meeting on Saturday last, it was decided that a conference should be sought with the MIelton and Keilor Boards on the subject of "tolls ;" but it was understood that the principal question would be the abolition of the Djerriwarrh toll. It was more than hinted that the Melton representatives are not likely to make any opposition, owing to the Wyndham Council having built (or being about to do so) a bridge across the Werribee, which would open up a line of road diverting the tnraffile from passing through Melton. However, 'be this as it may, we heartily hope that the toll with the unpronounceable name may be speedily done away witlh. Our readers will observe, in our advertising columns, the Prize List of the forthcoming show of the recently amalgamated Farming Societies of Ballan, nand Bacchus Marsh and Pontland Hills.

We subjoin a summary of the most important events of the month : ENGLAND. The news by the mail is of the most satisfactory character. Confidenco appeared to be restored in commercial circles, and timhe rates of discount had fallen to 4, per cent. On the Continent things were quiet, and there appeared no probability of a resumption of hostilities. T'he Queen, with Prince and Princess Christian of Schleswig.-Holstein, and the junior members of the lRoyal Family, continues at Balmoral Castle, in the enjoyment of good health. A gossiping rumour has been in circulation to the effect that the King of Greece aspires to the hand of the Princess Louise, and that Mr. Glad. stone, who is going to Rome, will afterwards visit Athens to see what are the prospects of the young King.
