BLACKWOOD. 22nd November, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 24 November 1866
BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) 22nd November, 1866. THE public meeting referred to in my last communication, with reference to the farewell demonstration to be given to Mr. Lawrence and Doctor Otway, came off on Friday night. Mr. Scott, agent for the Bank of Australasia here, occupied the chair. There was a fair attendance, and the proceedings were characterized by the most perfect unanimity. It was resolved to present Mr. Lawrence with an illuminated address, expres sive of the high opinion in which he is held as a private gentleman, and of the appreciation of his services as a Justice of the Peace. It was also resolved to present the Doctor with a purse of sovereigns, as a tangible proof of the esteem entertained for him, and as a slight recognition of the good which he has done, both privately and publicly. Both presentations are to be made on an early day, and the occasion is to be commemorated by a festival in one or other of the hotels. From the feeling which is being ex...

better accommodation with as little delay as possible. At any rate, it will only be doing now, what, I presume, would have to be done at some future time. So long as we have a resident clergyman it is no more than proper and becoming that we should strive to add to his material comfort as far as lies in our power, and unless we can find him shelter worthy of being called a home we shall fail at a very important stage of our duty to him. The last and only Bazaar, as yet, which took place here, was a decided success, and I cannot see why another effort of the same kind should fall behind. Some people object to the employment of such means for raising money for religious purposes. I entertain no such scruples; and, until arguments are brought forward more valid than those I have generally heard set forth condemnatory of Bazaars, I see no reason for changing my mind. No doubt it would be better, and even more consistent, if funds were contributed. from a sense of duty, but, in the absen...

SELECTED POETRY. THE GIFTS OF OTHER DAYS. &nbsp; When those who in the morn of life Mid home's fair sunlit scenes did stand, Unvexed by aught of care or strife, A happy and united band, Are torn apart by Fate's fell hand, With sorrow-burdened hearts to rove Through some far-distant stranger-land, Far from the scenes they fondly love, And when that whispered word is spoken Which wrings the soul when lovers part, How fondly is some little token Press'd to the aching heart ! Small though it be, 'tis valued more Than all the mine's bright, glittering store ; And often will the fond one gaze Upon those gifts of happier days. When youth's ethereal visions fly, And fancy's gay delusions die, We turn with fond yet tearful gaze Unto the gifts of earlier days; The gifts of those who now have gone, And left us in the world alone, And visions of the happy past, That sunny spring too bright to last, Conjured by Memory, arise, So sadly-sweet, before our eyes. And oh ! how dearly are they ...

TWENTY-FIVE DARK HOURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 December 1866
TWENTY-FIVE DARK HOURS. I'M what we call a ganger, and have so many men under me when we're making a new line o' rails. I passed best part o' my time in the country; but I have worked on the lines in France and Spain; but what I'm about to tell you happened in London, where we'd sunk a shaft righlt down, and then was tunnelling forrards and backards-the shaft being to get rid of the stuff, and sometimes for a stonam engine to be pumping up the water. It's rathler dangerous work, and many men gets hurt; but then a great deal of it's through carelessness, for lots of our fellows seem as though the whole o' their brains is in their backs and arms, wheore they're precious strong, and nowhere else; but I'd got so used to it that in cutting or tunnel it was all the same to me, and now I was busy supering the men digging, and sometimes bricklaying a bit, so that I thought very little about danger when I'd seen as all the shores and props was well in their places. It was just at the end o' ...
AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 December 1866
AGRIOULTURAL. Yl mINGO prospects are still bright ones, so far as the securing of good crops is con corned, and the prices of breadstuffs have been steadier than they were some months back. The feasibility of exporting grain to England is much talked of, and there appears to be a very general opinion that such an outlet for our surplus grain must ultimately be sought for. We notice that a resident at Balian has been asking advice from a well.known Mel bourne periodical upon the subject of grow ing Cape Barley and Mangoldls. We give the answer made :--Cape Barley or Rye ought to grow in the locality you write from. Bow just before you expect the first autumnal rains, say end of February or in all March, We prefer mangolds to potatoes for stock. Sow now if your land be pro pared, in rows fully thirty inches apart, and single out to twenty-four inches. They require horse.hoeing as soon as the rows are distinguishable. Our readers are probably familiar with a book called " Our Farm of' ...
