BLACKWOOD. 30th November, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 December 1866
BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) &nbsp; 30th November, 1866. The Escort left this on Monday last for Kyneton Railway Station; with 1333 ounces of gold. The supply of water for mining purposes is still kept up by the occasional showers which have recently fallen, and if they only continue in the same intermittent manner for a couple of months longer, operations are not likely to be suspended for any length of time (if at all), during the summer. As a rule, we can do better with an over, than an under supply of water. Our yield of gold is not diminishing, and the healthy state of our reefs generally, together with the discoveries of new ones (which are almost of daily occurrence,) do not warrant the conclusion that it is likely to become less. Indeed, there is every appearance of its increasing. It is the opinion of many that our future is yet before us; and although we have not made such rapid progress as some other mining communities, neither have we declined, as not a f...
BALLAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 December 1866
BALLAN, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The Bacchus Marsh, Ballan, and Pentland Hills Agricultural and Pastoral Society, held their first cattle show in Ballan on Thursday, the 29th instant. But a few weeks ago, when we talked of the advisability and advantage of establishing such a Society for Ballan, it was looked upon as the dream of some visionary, and a thing which could not be realised ; but to-day it is a fact, and the first Ballan show a thing of the past. It will long be remembered as an epoch in our history. Every thing connected with the Society reflects the greatest credit upon those gentlemen who have taken an active part in its management-as committee-men and stewards; they have spared no labour and expense, and everything done is worthy of our fast-progressing town, and themselves as representatives of our important agricultural interest. The Society's show yards are situated on rising ground, about half-a-mile outside the town, and are five acres in extent. Only one ac...

SELECTED POETRY. TREASURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 December 1866
SELECTED POETRY. TREASURES. Treasures ! What are treasures ? How manifold their kind ! The products in a thousand shapes &nbsp; &nbsp; Of many a gifted mind. The poet builds the lofty rhyme, His treasure and his pride ; The artist o'er his easel bends, And dreams of naught beside. The lover has his treasure, too, A maiden young and fair, With graceful form and witching eyes, And wealth of golden hair. Treasures ! What are treasures ? All that the heart holds dear, Or adds to human happiness, And soothes our sorrows here. Treasures ! What are treasures ? Oh, answer ye who view The many-tinted flowers that bloom, The Heaven's serenest hue; Who list the gushing melody Of Nature's untaught choir; Who live for great and noble things, And gloriously aspire. There's not a plant or flower below, Or aught that God hath made, In valley deep, on mountain top, But beauty doth pervade. The earth's made up of treasures, As drops compose the sea, Or grains of sand the ocean's bed, ...

THE Bacchus Marsh Express. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 December 1866
Naccdjius 'l4am irss SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1806. IN their reply to the speech of His Excel lency Sir CHARLES DARLING at the opening of the present Parliament, the Legislative Council expressed its willingness to acquiesce in a protective tariff, even to the extent of placing a duty on wheat. The country had declared for protection, and, the Council was prepared to gratify the popular will to the top of its bent. Protectionists in the Assembly would concur with the Council in giving Protection all round. There was no reason why wheat should not be protected as well as widows' caps. The ministerial tariff, it is true, recognised the claims of the farmer so far as to place a duty on butter, bacon, cheese, oats, barley, and malt, and by a differential duty in favour of colonial spirits; but it did not place a duty on wheat. This was a fatal mistake. It was the weak point in the ministerial position-the teto du pont through which, by a bold stroke, Mr. FELLOWS and his coadjutors were to ...
A NIGHT ENCOUNTER WITH THE "HYDAHS." [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 December 1866
A 'NIGHT ENCOUNTER WITH , THE " HYDAHS." FROII TIIE ARnOY.) IN tno earner days of the British Columbian gold-fields, when parties of men were ex ploring the Fraser River and its tributaries in various directions, but before sufficient numbers had arrived to awe the neighbouring tribes, several of the more advanced detach ments of minors were attacked, and in some cases seriously injured, by wandering bands of hostile Indians. These acts of violence were repeated whenever opportunity offered, till at last fireluent suflbring induced the miners to take )roper precautions a.ainst surprise and attack. As a rule, no one knows better than an Indian when he ianv commit a depredation with impunity, and 'therefore the nmurderous a:saults on the white men were discontinued as soon as it was found that the results were altogether disproportioned to the cost. There was, however, a certain number of white nmen continually ariving from Vancouver Island and the coast, many of whom, having confiden...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 December 1866
NEWS OF THE WEEK, The reaping machine, the cradle, and the more primitive instrument--the sickle-are now being wielded with a will in every part of the district, gathering in the fruits of the season; and, cer tainly, more propitious weather could not possibly be had for that purpose. This week and next will almost finish the barley harvest. The crops have turned out most abundant, and the quality of the grain is, as a whole, superior to any that has been grown in the district. We are glad to learn that several of the Melbourno produce merchants and maltsters have visited the district with the view of purchasing barley for the coming season; and that, in consequence, very satisfactory prices have been obtained by the farmers. So that, with the prospect of good crops of all other kinds of grain, and also root crops (should the weather hold good for a few weeks longer, and enable the farmer to house his crops securely), this will be the best season we have had for many years. We have ...
AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 December 1866
AGRIO ULT URAL. IIHAVEST may be said to have now com menced, and would have done so sooner but for the cool, dull weather which prevailed in the early part of the week and few previous We have not heard of the existence in any numbers of such insects as the caterpillar this season; but, without being open to the charge of prophesying evil, we may naturally expect that there is all the greater pro. bability of insect life being prolific after an absence for one season. However, be this as it may, it is a very good proverb that " Prevention is better than- cure," and con sequently we give our readers an epitome of an article frbm the Australasian upon the "Destruction of Insects." In autumn, im mediately after our harvest, we are led to believe that most of our enemies, in the shape of insects, follow the dictates of nature, and deposit their larvre, and in a position capable of being favourably acted upon by such implements as the scarifier, harrow, and roller. It is, then, recommend...
