BLACKWOOD. 15th November, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866
BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) 15th November, 1866, WHATEVER effect the recent copious rainfall may have had upon the crops, it has not been un- acceptable to our digging community. Abundance of water is the mainspring, so to speak, of mining operations, and here, as elsewhere, the fresh supply will, no doubt, be productive of good results. The season, so far as it has gone, has been a favourable one for the miner, and if it only continues for a few weeks longer, it is to be hoped that there may be a sufficient supply of water in reserve to enable sluicers and others who are dependent upon it, to continue working till the close of the year. It is proposed to fete two gentlemen residing here prior to their leaving the district, The gentlemen alluded to are Henry Lawrence, Esq,, J.P,, and Dr. Otway. The former is an old resident here, and is about shortly to leave the colony for England, to enjoy his olium cum dignitate. Dr. Otway is about to proceed to Adelaide, where, it under...

SELECTED POETRY. LAND AND SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 17 November 1866
SELECTED POETRY. LAND AND SEA. THE seaman may sing of his own vast sea, And the swain of his own sweet land; But it boots not where the wanderer be, &nbsp; With a chainless heart and hand; In storm the sea hath a fearful power— A beauty in repose; And the land is rich in fruit and flower, Or bleak in winter's snows. &nbsp; How free to bound o'er the waters wide, Swift as the rushing gale ! How sweet to look from the mountain's side On the calm and sequestered vale ! There's a charm in the greenwood's summer sigh— There's a spell in ocean's roar; I have loved, I have sought them both, as fly Spring birds from shore to shore, I was born on the verge of the ocean deep, I have played with his locks of foam, And watched his weltering billows leap From the door of my cottage home I would die on the breast of some lonely isle, Where no rude footsteps sound Where a southern heaven on my grave may smile, And the wild waves boom around. J. C. PRINCE.

" MIARrY IN HASTE AND IlEPENT At L;ISURE."- Wo hope that the hero and heroine of the following may not have cause to repent, but it is quite certain that they did marry in haste. On Saturday, 27th October, a buxom damsel of some twenty. three summers was a passenger to Maldon, her maternal home, by one of the Maldon Coaches, and a stalwart minor, hailing from Cornwall, took a seat by her side, They were total strangers to each other, the man being from Bendigo, on the look.out for his brother, and never having been in Maldon before; however, on the journey, they enjoyed a pleasant chat, and it is to be presumed became mutually enamoured of each other. At all events, it is a fact that on reaching Maldon, a whispered conversation took place, and the damsel, instead of going homo, took the arm of the swain, and pro. ccodld at once to the residence of a minister, who, upon satisfying himself that both were sane and of mature ago, agreed to tie them up. When called upon for their names f...

A MAN FOLLOWING HIS OWN COFFIN TO THE GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 24 November 1866
A MAN FOLLOWING HIS OWN COFFIN TO THE GRAVE. ONe of the most remarkablo frauds that has over been perpetrated at the expense of an insurance company has for some time occupied the attention of the detective department of police of Scotland yard. It appears that one Vital Douat, an exten sive wino metrchaut of Bordeaux, insured his life to the amount of 100,000 francs in one of the insurance officos in Paris; after which he returned to his place of business at Blordeaux, but sub sequently failed, and was declared by the laws of France to be a fraudulent bankrupt to the amount of £24,000. lie suddenly disappeared, and about a month afterwards his wife prsoented a certificate, purporting to be a copy of the register of the death and burial of her husband Vital Douat, in England, at the insurance oflico in Paris, and claimed the amount for which his life had been insured. Some suspioion arising in the minds of the officials at Paris, the insurance money was not paid, and the case was fo...

A MOTHER'S LAMENT. DEDICATED TO THE TRUSTEES OF THE BALLAN CEMETERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 24 November 1866
A MIOTHER'S LAMENT. DEDICATED TO THE TRUSTEES OF THE BALLAN CEMETERY. I am weeping o'er thy grave, Jessie, Where long you've been at rest, But there are no flowers blooming Above thy lonely breast; Whilst the few trees that are waving Their branches to the sky, Have no young birds to sing, dear, Thy evening's lullaby. I little thought, my dear one. When I rock'd thee in thy cot, The cruel Fates would lay thee In this lone and wretched spot. Oh I when the rain is falling, And the wind makes a dismal song, I think and weep for thee, darling, The whole night long I I often think of thee, my Jessie, And how barren life would be, Had CHRIST ne'er said, darling, "Little children, come to me." When I used to kiss with rapture Sorrow's dew.drops from thine eye, Oh! I never thought to bring thee In this Cemetery to lie I It is a lone, neglected place, And too truly it is said "We pay respect to the Golden Class But none to the sleeping dead I" You were our only joy, Jessie, In this world of ...

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1860. THE publication of a statement of receipt. and expenditure of the Bacchus Marsh and Maddingly District Road Board, affords ui an opportunity of referring to a few of the figures it contains, and also of drawing a few deductions from them as to the prosperity o the district. The first thing which appears to strike us in perusing this document is the smallness of the several amounts treated of For instance, the revenue from rates is, in round numbers, only £600; which amount costs some £50 or £60 to collect. Indeed this year, the cost of valuing the property in the district, with incidental expenses con nected therewith, is likely to be £100. I is a manifest evidence of the benefits derived from local self-government that we obtail for this small sum an endowment from Government of, in round numbers, £1100 besides an additional amount of £500, a Malain Road Subsidy. We find in these figures, then, a complete answer to the objections sometimes made to the e...

BALLAN. (FaROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ST. JOHN'S CHURCIIH, BALLAN. THEI annual pice-nic for the children con nected with the above Church took place on Monday, the 19th inst. The scholars of the Sunday School were under the superintendence of the Rev. Henry Scott, pastor of St. John's, and those of the Day School were similarly attended to by Mr. Walter Scott, head teacher of the Ballan Common School. The pic-nic, like the one of last yver, was a great success, and reflected the hliglhest credit upon the ladies and gentlemen who took an active part in its management. The day was beau tifully fine, and as the children, to the number of one hundred and eighty, passed through our Main Street in procession, bearing in their hands small banners of various hues, they caused our township to assume quite a holiday appearance. 'I'he procession, it is true, was not headed by a band of music, but the repeated juvenile "hip-hip-hurrah's!" told that there were on that sunny morning a number of ...
