THE HOTHAM COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
THE .HOTIIAMl COUNICIL. The dissensions of this body are as suming greater dimensions every meeting and will rival the feuds of the Guclphi and the Ghibelines unless the rateayors take some decided action. At the meet. ing on Monday evening, the proceedings were brought to an abrupt termination because Councillor Laurens made a very long speech upon the Arden street exten sion. Councillors Thomas, White and Carroll left the Council Chamber, and there being no quorum, the business on the order paper was suspended. Surely the Mayor ought to exercise his authority to prevent such unpleasant scenes occur. ring.: Let" him rule that no Councillor shall speak longer. than ten minutes on any subjet, and if he carries out this impartilly,tbhe business of the Council will be rapidly proceeded with. Per sonal differences should not be permitted to interfere with the public duty of Councillors.

Cricket d BY LONGSLIP. fi Everything in cricket ciroles seemsooery * dull just at the present time, and /blfw to d account for it I know not, unless players ). have lately had a surfelt. It seems to me n. they have not got over onogratulating them a. selvoa over the great triumph our chosen e. players gained over the ERiglishmen, and are r. couoent to remain in pseeivo indolence until they administer another nauseous dose n, in the shape of a one innings beating to the pride of England's cricketers. Our local n club seem to be affeoted the same as others, P- not a match having hoen played by them rs since the wnok bolre Christmna, but as the 0- indefatigable secretary has arranged some h- good matches for the remainder of the season, I am glad to see that the members are now rousing themselves uo , and are going in for steady practice.

The Churches. THE WESLEYAN CHURCH, HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
The Churches. TIHE WESLEYAN CHURCH, HOTHAM. During the last couple of months the Weslcyan Church in Queensberry street, Hotham, has been in the hands of the builder undergoing a thorough repair, which has just been completed. Indeed the appearance of the interior has been so much altered for the better that one would fail to identify the primitive structure of the past in the gorgeous building which now meets the eye of the visitor. The most noticeable feature in the alterations is the erection of a gallery which runs round the build. ing, and which will afford accommodation for 400 additional worshippers. The seats are of cedar, highly polished, and the pulpit is composed of the same material. The railings which surround the pulpit and gallary are richly gilt, and looks rather handsome. The windows have been altered to the true ecclesiastical pattern, and are of stained glass. Power. fil reflectors surround innumerable gas jets, the light from which descends front the roof, and the...

OUR LIBRARY TABLE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
OUR LIBUARY TABLE. We have received the February num ber of the Australian Journal. The con. tents, this month, are particularly excel lent, but, foremost in point of interest is "The Early History of Victoria." To those who have been in the colony for upwards of twenty-five years, it must be a matter of regret that hitherto no attempt has been made to rescue from oblivion the history of the struggles and adventures of the, pioneers who previous to the gold fever laid the foundations of Victoria. 'Year by year these men are passing away, old landmarks are removed, the stirring incidents by flood or field, and the hair. breadth escapes fromtthe subtle treachery of the blacks, which marked the daily life of the hardy men who first squatted in the wild' interior of the colony, are fast being consigned to oblivion. We hail, therefore, this effort to save for posterity something like a continuous history of the early days of Victoria. It alone should insure the Australian Journal a wide ...
Original Poetry. THE STORM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
. ' Original Poetry. THE STORM. Hark l hark I to the storm without, as it howl, in its frenzied rageo, Nought can its violenca check, or its awful Swrath assuago ; It ileso in its mad career o'er mountain and phlins and sea, Unshackled and unfottored, the freest of the free. Oh ! I loe its noisy turmoil, and to see the lightning's nlash, And to hoar the thunder follow with its woe or deaf'ning crash, And the sound of falling rain, with the pat. toring of the hail, Or to see the feathery sleet, as it drives boforo the gale. And I love to stand at midnight and hear his mighty roar, As he urges on the billows to some rook encircled shore; To mo'the blast is soothing, and I glory In the shook. Of the waves as- they're bounding onward and dnshing from reck to roelok. ForI knbow that there is a Being "above.mo as o stand, - ' Who hold, both. earth and water In the hollow of his hand, And the same Almighty power that can still the heavlng sea, Is In all plaeo present, is watching over me. ...
