CAUTION TO SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
CAUTION TO SERVANTS. A case of some interest under the Masters' and Servants' Act, was heard at the Heidelberg Police Court on Monday, the 9th inst. A ploughman named Canny sued his master John Cooper, re siding at Prospect Hill, for £2 3s. id., being two week's wages. The defendant denied any liability, because Canny was his hired servant, and had left without giving duoe notice. According to the 2nd section of the Masters' and Servants' Act, a man leaving his master's employment without notice is liable to hsave his wages forfeited. Under the 19th-section any complaint about food, &e., must be made to the master in the first instance, and then a complaint must be laid before two justices. Those rules had not been com plied with in the case of Canny v. Cooper, and consequently theplaintifl"s wages were forfeited.
THE QUARRY HOLES, PARK STREET. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
THE QUARRY HOLES, PARK STREET. The- Borough Council of Brunswick has made a commendable suggestion to get the dangerous quarry holes filled up in East ]Brunswick. A deputation waited on the Hon. the Commissioner of Lands to sec if the £600 passed last session for this work could not be obtained= at once. From the wording of the " Appropiation Act" it appears the street must be really formed before the Government money is available. Under these circumstances it was suggested that prison labor might be employed on this work, and Mir. Casey requested that application should be made to the Chief Secretary. There is no reason why prison labor should not be utilized as is done at Williamstown and Portland. In some parts of New Zealand most important results have been achieved with such means.

THE SYDNEY ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
"' II? SYDNEY itOAD The numerous tradesmen to and from ielbourne will be glad to know that at last there is a reasonable probability of the Sydney road within the bounds of the city being widened. Tenders for this work were called for last week, and we trust to see it carried out without further loss of time. It is intended to take in about 12 feet on the western side of the road, forming it the whole distance to the Brunswick boundary. As the City Coun cil has been in receipt of 10d. in the £ from the toll fund for this special work since 1870, it is time something was done towards carrying out the arrange ment then entered into by the united bodies of Brunswick, Coburg, and Melbourne.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 19 February 1874
SIGN S.OF THE TIMIES. It is somewhat amusing to observe how the political vultures are already sniffing at the prey. Men, whose proper weapon should be a crutch, are calling for their swords. The £300 a year is a windfall which is worth a struggle, notwithstanding the chance of a cross-buttock. Members who have been apathetic and neglectful of their duties, are now wide awake, and are to be seen hob-nobbing with influen tial electors, introducing deputations and button-holing Ministers. Truly, there is a wonderful; galvanic power in the baw beo's which can thus resuscitate such political wind bags.

The wind had hushed for a while, and across my face there came for a moment a sort of ruddy glow,. the last beams of the sun settling rapidly into .the sea. .The vapors divided for . moment, the huge dark mass of a mountain frowned down upon me-for a moment only -then the clouds encompassed me once more-the glow died away-the awful gloomy grey of night began to, gather in upon me like a net.
