DARTMOOR. (vaoM oUR OWN ORRESPONDENT). August 25, 1876. This past month the weather has been all in favour of the late crops. which probably will be very late as the ploughing is not over yet with some farmers, the weather is wet but fine. The party of able-bodied men with horse and tip cart, mentioned in my last letter, were not sent by the Portland Shire Council to improve the roads, but were on their way to the drainage works at Mount Gambier, South Australia, and no movement has been yet made by the Shire to mend our bogs, -miseslled roads. -Our schoolmaster, Mr. Donbar, has had a narrow escape from the bursting of a blood vessel; all hopes for some time were given up, but I am now happy to ay hae is slowly recovering. Mr. Dunbar has been many years now in our district be is an excellent neighbour and useful member of society, and his recovery affords great pleasure.

MELBOURNE. Melbourne, August 29. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 September 1876

SMELBOURNE. (r1o3 OU1l OWN cORREaPOnrnDNT.) Melbourne, August 20. A question was asked in the Assembly this evening concerning a recent letter which appeared in a a Ballarat journal, alleging that a member of the Assembly had con nived at dummylsm with respect to certain selections at Bent. Mr. rllies replied that the department was not aware tllhat such dummyisnm had taken place, and conser quently the enatier dropped. It has hlre n generally stlted that thle gCntleClan referred to is a Ministerial supporter, but thisassump. lion is an erroneous one, fur I ihppen to be aware that the accused, though a meimber of the Assembly, is inot an active member of either of its prominent sectiois. Have any of your readers inspected the photo-lithographs weich have been sold in aid of the defence fund, instituted towards defraying the expensca of the accusers of Mr. Brough Smyth.

THE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 September 1876

THE GERMANS. In everythlig the German is con trolled. Hle is controlled in his love--K ihakings and marryings; he is controlled in the utterance of his opinion; he is controlled in his goings out' and his cbmings in. The journalist is liable at aly moment to fine and imprisonment; the caricaturist to arrest; of liberty of the press there can be no question, of the license of the law no doubt. In the.. old gambling days of Jiadon and Hold-ý Bourg, no native officer was permitted. to play at the tables; the money of the. State must remain in the State pocket;. but this fatherly solicitude for the coin. of the country did not extend itself. to the pocket of the peasant, who would stand gloating through long Sunday afternoons at the heaps of gold, venture at last :lis florin or his thaler, and ietiro into his work-a-day world on Monday a disillusioned ehawbacona. Control touches even the follies and[ flirtations of the young. Lately in a northern capital, garrisoned by Prussian troops, ...

FRIENDLY SOCIETIES AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 1 September 1876

FRIENDLY SOCIETIES AT HOME. A decisoen of importance to members of friendly societies was given the other week by the sheriff at the Glasgow small debt court, where Robert Fisher, an engineer, sued the Artisan Friendly and Yearly Society for £2 odd, as as alment duoe to him as a n.emiber for eight weeks during sickness. The defence stated that the pursuer had committed a breach of one of the rules, which stipulates that no member should be out after six o'clock on any evening during which he claimed benefit. Fisher, it seems, had by his own admission been out of his dwelling one Saturday evening for half-an hour; but he urird in excuse that he was obliged to get provisions for the Sunday fol lowing, owing ti the fact of his daughter, who usually performed this service for him, not coming to his house that evening, and as be lived alone, he had no one whom he could send In her place. The sheriff decided that the rule was binding, adding, however, an expresseon of his opinion," that n...
