WHERE HAS THE MONEY GONE? [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
WHERE HAS THE MONEY GONE 2 Jgfiiint in'aid'of £700 was given .by the Government to' the Borough Coun -il-f]oi'iithfa foi`making Ardei- street decently passableo,and the inhabitants of -this quagmire. would be glad to know how it his peen eonluded.' ' It" is said that' the" Council has only'received £500 ifi-this money, but where is it gone? From Errol street down, to the swamp thoroadway ini wet-weather is a perfect crab bole and a Godsend to the shoe makers, for if an' unfortunate' ratepayer attompts.to cross it, nine times out of, ten, he comes out of the mire minus a, boot or .a shoe. The least the Council could do would be to form crossing: pl ces where streets intersect and thus give the ratepayers something for their money.. It is said the Council have no futids, should this be the case it will be ioihb'oatisfaction if the councillors for; the ward make inquiries as to to how and when the Government money was expended in this street.
A CASE FOR POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
"'" 1OASE OFOI POLICE. .;, y prA psoncrossiig the swamp by the Footscray road must have noticed coivs'fooding upon tho impure. garbage; found in this roceptacle for Hotham drqiilano. The4o animals. are perfect vagrants in their,way, and aro a nul sauce to the inhalbitants of Dryburgh street. Twice a day they come, or are driven home to be milked, and are then let out to roam at will wherever 'fancy6~lads" them. Dryburgh street lies low, receiving the drainage of the higher ground in the rear, and these erratic-quadrupeds completely, cut up th'-f6oodtpiths?:--The neighbors have repeatedly complained of the nuisance without avail. Perhaps if the animals were impounded, or the owner sum moned for allowing- them to wander in the ipublic streets, the greivance would be abated.

Tales, Sketches, &c. A BROKEN BRIDGE. A THRILLING STORY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 12 February 1874
Tales, Sketches, &c. A BROKEN BRIDGE. A THRILLING STORY. I reached the little Welsh- town of Abor maw one boisterous afternoon in autumn, at c about four o'clock, after a long tramp over the mountains. Abermaw, as its name im plies, is situated at the mouth of the river Maw, which here forms an estuary about a mile broad. The town itself faces the open h mea ;the harbor lies about half.a.milo up the ,estuary; whilst between the town and the harbor was the outline of a huge bridge then in course 'of construction; Abermaw is a little bit of a place, consisting of a hotel; a 'few shops, a church, a chapel-of-osse, .and half.a·dozon lodging-houses, which are built !on a platform of sand, the work of the sea t and river in concert or in conflict. Toe old fishing village is" perched upon 'the rooks I above, tier upon tier, the lintel-stone of one house looking down the chimney of the house below, and is reached by rude rocky , steps, where the children of the villageo swarm unp an...

The Churches. THE NORTH MELBOURNE PULPIT. THE REV. W. H. FITCHETT AND NORTH MELBOURNE WESLEYAN CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
S The Churches. :THE NORTH MELBOURNE PULPIT. TUI RnEV. V. 5.. FITO.ETT AND NORTIH. M ELDOURNE WEsLEYAN UHURCHI. ' If John Wesley was to arise from his grave and view the results of his labors in the tens of thousands of churches, chapols, and meeting houses in various parts of the world, I venture to believe that he would be astonished, and pro bably exclaim: "Behold how great a flame a little spark kindleth." Those who are acquainted with the early trials and struggles of the founder of Method ism would never imagine that from a handful of insignificant men such a result would have boon arrived at. Verily from small beginnings mighty fabrics rise, and never was the force of this truism more forcibly illustrated than in .the history of the origin and development of Wesliylsm. Even im in Victoria Methodism occupies no moan place, and the many beautiful :churches that are erected speaks volumes for the liberality of its members. Look at the church in Lonsdale street with its spire tow...
Correspondence. CRICKET IN HOTHAM. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
Correspondence. CRICKET IN HOTHA . To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-Your correspondents " Cricketer" and "Longstop" both most -opportunely draw attention to the much discussed question of the present position of c?cket in the borough. Having a slight know' ledge of theo subject must be my excuse for adding my quota to the correspond. once. From the tone of " Cricketer's " letter I should judge him to be a member of the old Hotiham C.C., who has had considerable experience in the commend able though ineffectual efforts whicl were made some years ago to obtain possession of the piece in the Royal Park. The pathetie allusion to that insurmountable ditficulty-the 'Acclimatisation Society apeaks volumes. "Longstop's "utterance on this subject relates more to the present aspect of affairs. It is brief and to the purpose-virtues not always chargeable to "own correspondents." The fact is, the present IIotham C.C. made another strong effort to obtain the coveted: spot in the park, and ha...

THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
THE ELECTIONS. We undeastanid that' Mr. Munro has been .presented- with a numerous and influential:requisition, asking his consent , to be placed in nomination for the re .prie'sentatioO of North Melbourne. It is underetood:that Mr: Muuro has com. '"plied, aiid! his address- will shortly appear.r Itis rumored that Mr. Burtt wished Mr. Munro. to try some other district, but without success ;therefore if Mr. Burtt elects to go to the poll he '`will do so at a disadvantage. Mr. - Munro,- it is stated, has obtained the • prbmise of a large portion of the Good Templar vote, and will thus have the advantage of his opponents. Mr. Dick Sbna we believe, has issued an address to the electors, but very few have seen it, .or appear to know anything about it. Mr.'. Godfrey is- working energetically, and is determined to try his fortunes at the hustings. Mr. Arnold, of Carlton, is mentioned'as a probable candidate, ?~ut this gentleman has up to the present, issued no address. The candidates' niam...
Cricket. HOTHAM (1ST ELEVEN) v. ESSENDON (1ST ELEVEN.) [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
Cricket. BY LONGSLIP. norTix (1sT ELEVEN) V. ESSENDON (leT ELEVEN.) On Saturday last the 1st eleven of the lIotham C. C. visited Essondon to play the let eleven of the local club. Great interest was felt in this match by the Ilothamites, as for two seasons in succes. sion their cracks had been defeated by the players of Essendon, but this time they amply revenged their former defeats by Siving them in turn a most decisive drub. bing. Tie Essendon went to the wickets first, but Moir and Hastings found weak spots in their defence, and disposed of t them very quickly for a total of 35 runs. 1 The Hothamites totted up a score of 85 runs with the loss of four wickets, Parish contributing 39 of that number, Hastings 15, not out, and Purves 13. The fielding of both teams was decidedly loose, the only exception being McLean for the Hotham, who, I am told, fielded superbly. noTrIA (2ND ELEVEN) V. WEST MEL IIonUI00E (2ND ELEVEN.) This match ended rather unsatisfactorily, there being a dispute...
A HINT TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
A HRINT TO CORRESPONDENTS. It is.req ested that in future corres pondents in their lcommuncations will be brief, and to: the point., We have received:,severql letters recently which would have been,inserted if they had not been so unusually lengthy. It must be remembered, that the " Advertiser " is.the.local paper for a large number of districts, each of which supplies local hews. If, therefore, one correspondent takes'ip a column of space'in publish. ing his grievance, he does so at the expense of others;, who may equally desire to ventilate' subjects of interest. We are always very willing to give the utmost publicity to local correspon dence, but there must be a limit to the extent of each letter.

HOTHAM BOROUGH OFFICERS AND THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
HOTHIAM :BOROUGH OFFICERS AND THE ELECTIONS. SThe- election of Councillor for the Middle Ward has brought to light a .practice that should at once be dis. conistenanced, as it shows-to say the least every bad taste in those .adopting it. We efer.to the habit of the paid officers of the Council taking prominent action at the elections of Councillor. This evil for it is an evil-was most noticeable on Tuesday; last, when some of the officers were nacting in a manner not at all coni. sistent with their positions as paid servants of the burgesses. We believe that the bur gesses of Hotham will agree with us when we say that it would be preferable if the paid ofticials were to simply record their votes$ and retire instead, as at present is their practice, of congregating round the election booths and actively canvas. sing the burgesses for votes for a par ticular candidate. There are two evils likely to arise from this practice. First, should the candidate so favored be elected, he will na...

A CASE FOR THE BENEVOLENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
A CASE FOR THE BENEVOLENT. The into Fifo Major Shaw, of the Northorn Volunteer Rifles.is we reprot to hear in very bad health, his wife is also very ill, and we feel assured that attention has only to be drawn to their position to insure them aid from those in the district who have known the old couple for so manyyoars; no time should be lost by his former pupils and old comrades in forming a committee to arrange as to the best means of affording relief to himself and wife, and from the hearty manner in which similar appeals have always been responded to hitherto, there is no doubt the result will be all that could be desired.
