MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 2 February 1878

MELBOURNE LETTER. ---~- (PnRoI OUR oWN CORaESPONDENT). There is no material change in the aspect of political affairs since my last letter, if I oxcept the dismissal of a number of additional oflicers, es tile. graphed to you last week, and the re instatement of a portion of the County Court judges, police magistrates, and colonors to cure tihe illegality of their wholesale abolition. A number of inettings have been held in the interests of the Ministry, and as effectual steps are inva\riably taken at these gatbatings to bowl down any expression of adverse opinion, it is not surprising that toler able unanimity ha.s been secued. Any unprejidiced person, howyver, who heas attended theis gatherings will bear me out that at nearly till of them there has been a large nurmber, enc4 in some a mjority, of silent undemonstrative per. sons present who, have neither held tilup their bhnds nor raised their voices in Iavor of the Ministry, but who, if afforded tle opportunity of expressing thei...

WHANREGARWEN. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 2 February 1878

WHANIEGARWEN. (FROM Qun own CORRESPONDENT.) 4 challenge match between the Johnston's Creek team and our l?cal club came oif on Saturday, the 19th inst., near the Flour Mill, the result b.ing eminently satisfactory to the latter, who won by one run and one wicket to spare, and were well content to score a victory, oven on such cl.soe tern~s. 'The Whanregarwen men had an uphill battle to fight from beginning to end. The club has only been about two months in existence, and those picked to play had never practised together previously, while nine opt of the rleveq players had never been in a match before. Taking everything, therefore, into consileration, our men did remarkably well, and gre~t credit is due to the captain (F. Bullen) for the able manner in which he managed such a team of t colts." The buwling on both sides was very good, nas exemplifed by the low average of runs, that of W. Hartley, junr, for Johnson's Creek, and J. Purcell for Whanregarwen, deserving especial notice. Me...

0ghiatdnita & C 'a e ilrldilrld PUII.III,.D EVERY SATURDAY 4 EXCFELI?1(1n." SATURDAY, 2ND FEBRUARY. ''llE seventh annual report of the com mittee of the Alexandra Hospital, which appears in another column, will show that the funds of the institution are at present at a very lowy ebb, or rather th't they have no funds at all, but a deficiency to make good out of the ftture revenue, and that it is serious;y contemplated to close the hospital unless the residents of the district show a more generous disposition to support it than has recently bee~ the case. We should be sorry to think that there is a single individual in the community who would not regret such a consummation, and consequently we are willing to believe that the lack of support ac corded to the hospital is attributable more to carelessness and thoughtlessness thlnq to wart of symtpathy with, or ap proval of the objects of such a desirable ai.d even necessary institution, in a district which is so isolated from ot...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 9 February 1878

MELBOURNE LETTER. -4--t (vROst OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). The Wdst Melbourne election and its result-the return of Sir Bryean O'Loghlen by a majority of 90 votes have, of course, been the principal events of the week, eclipsing in interest even the re-assembling of Parliament, which took place on the following day. Respecting the election, it cannot be dented that it has proved' a heavy blow and sore discouregemont to the Consti tutional party, chiefly frome the fact that although the success of the Go vernment candidate ws not thought impossible, it was scarcely anticipated seriously. It is now evident by the result that the Ministry olayed their best card in bringing oat Sir Bryan, as` by it they secured the wvhlioln lower stratum of the Roman. Catholic vote, a. very strong one in the constituency,. the. fact of having a candidate possessing more than '1 a drop of good' old Irisha blood" evidently outweighing every other consideration in the minds of many of the voters.

WEST MELBOURNE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 9 February 1878

WEST MELBOURNE ELECTION. The West Melbourne election, after an exciting contest, resulted in a total of 1073 votes for Sir Bryan O'Loghlen, and 1883 for Mr J. G. Francis, the former candidate thus having a ma jotity of 00. The poll is the heaviest on record in this constituency. As to the return of Sir Bryan O'Loghlen, it is believed to be vitiated by the par tisanship and the incompetency of the returning officers, which were equally gross, and it is probable that the right of the hon. gentleman to the seat will be challenged. Ballot-papers were not ready in time, no certified rolls were issued, and the returning officors per sisted in ignoring the objections taken to dummy voters, and in refuising to put the questions required by law. On these grounds the supporters of ir Francis are anxious that his oppo. nont lshould be petitioned against. 'lThe voting shows that West Melbourne in divided into two districts, which are entirely separated from each other in political feeling. In t...
