First class draught stock maintains itsprice.but the balk of the salesare to farmers in the district. We have seldom seen so few strangers attend our market here: We believes dry week would improve the horse trade, as in some parts the land Is too wet for work ing in any way, but until the Ooliban Water-works, or railway extension commences there is not much likelihood of any permanent improvement taking place in the demand for the best class of draught stock.

PERAMBULATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 26 May 1870
PERAMBULATOR. o- I have.not been mixing with the busy world lately, but I candidly admit I believe to many this is more a matter of congratula tion than regret. During the past few days, however,.I have. moved, abroad with come degree of regularity, and= I find there are many grievous sores that req.iire healing many dirty spots that want cleaning- many doubtful reputations which would bear reno vating, and scores of public men who want careful watching. Whether it is that I am by nature crotchety and inelined to find fault, or that there are such an abundance of abuses that must strike the.eye of. the most obtuse,.I am not aware,.but I fear that old age,. towards which I am fast advancing, has something t. do with the extreme queroui lessness. and irritability of temper to which I am subject. I am at all events very dogged. in. my opinions,. and: a person. may keep. telling me for a long time that two blacks would make one white before I would believe him. A person may also tell me...

(Oopy.) Police Department, Suverintendent's Offile, Kilmore, 10th May, 1870. I beg to Etate that I can'see no reason to alter the opi:ion expressed in my letter of the 26th May, 186i9, and especially now as there are two oonetables located at Broadford-will entirely obviate the neces city for a p-rmnmen' police station at Reedy Oreek, s r ne of these eonstables will be almost daily in or eb:mut the locality of R.erly Creek and the Yea Read The locality referred to is no more a special haunt for bushrangers than any other part of the country, for we ocetiojally hear of ofnces of this nature being cormitted in populous localities and withia very few milke of police stations. I ant quite setisfied that daily patrols by the mouott. constable f om Broadford will meet all the requirments of the neighborhood. (signed) REGINALD GREEN, Superintendent.

Let us sup pose a fire broke out in any of the business houses of the town, th, re is no public officer on duty to give the alarm, or to take any active steps in the matter, thus nnot only may the property be consumed, but the inmates of the premises burnt to a cinder, Again what is to prevent the robber from plundering at will during those hours, any of the wealthy houses of the town.. There is no dread or fear of the constable, the great preventive to crime, hence the wonder that those robberies so prevalent in other less popl ulous ...
