BRICKMAKERS' UNION. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
BRICRMAKERS' UNION. It is gratifying to observe that nearly all the employers in Brunswick have adopted the eight hours' system, and given their adhesion to the demands, of the union. Many of the employers at tended a . meeting. of the Board of Management recently, and pledged them selves to assist in carrying out the general laws by employing none but union men. The following are the names of the employers who have adopted the eight hours' system :-Messrs. Green, Lang ford, Trenoweth, Mills, Frestone, Little. john, Walkereden, Parlon, Harden, Cornwall, Wadsworth, M'Cormick, Car ney, P. Marr, Barnimjan, J. Lacey, S. Gilew, Burton, and Redfern. It is to be hoped.that those employers who still oppose the union, and adhere to the ton hours as the standard of a day's work, will see the necessity of altering their opinions, and allow reason to get the better of prejudice.
A DISGUSTING NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
A DISGUSTING NUISANCE. It has been often asserted that the Eastern Ward, of all other localities in the borough, has suffered the most severely through the neglect of" ,the Hotham Council. Events which have recently occurred would tend to favor this belief. There is a largejcorrugated iron building, next door to the National Bank of Aus tralia, which is now used as a Pig Mar. ket. The existence of such a place in a densely populated neighborhood is highly dangerous to the health of the community.. The effluvium which is emitted from three or four hundred pigs, closely packed together, is something horrible, and at night it is perfectly un bearable. Sickness prevails amongst children in this neighborhood to a large extent, and it is not too much to say that unless this disgusting nuisance is immediately removed an epidemic may be created of a most alarming character. The Hotham Council does not derive a sixpence of revenue from this market yet the health of the burgesses is sacri. fi...
A VALENTINE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
A VALENTINE. Stay lady, stay I for mercy's sake, And hear a helpless victim's pray'r; His ohest with grief is fit to bust ; The cause to speak he does not dareo; But writes these lines to lot you know Ilis dire extremity of woo I Ho walked beside the river side, And by the river sighed, oocause he found to him denied Toe joys that love supplied. He could not find a maiden, who would look at him and love him too But Cupid soon an arrow sent; Into his heart it got. It 'arrowed up his very soul It was an artful shot A straight one two, yet 'twas a "mess," (Tho'not so very much amiss) That spoils his every hope of blis- Three burning darts struck deep, and then, lie struck his colors too (Some curious strokes are often made when Cupid has the cue) A lady caused this conquering lame, And Sarah Hopkino was her name Her skin was pure and clear as day, Heor teesh were pearly white; While as regards her nose, she knows, It's everything that's right Her hair tho' long was neatly bound Her 'ai...
BOARD OF HEALTH, HOTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
BOARD OF HEALTH, HOTIIAM. On Tuosday last the appellate jurisdic. tion of the Melbourne General Sessions commenced in the Court House, Swanston street. The Local Board of Health, Hotham, appeared in four or five eases, but only one was gone into, the restboing adjourned till Monday next. The case heard was one in which Mr. Stubbs was interested, and he appealed under the 48th section of the "Public Health Admend ment Statute" No. 310. It appears the Board Wanted a strip of his land about 4& feet wide from the back of an allot ment 66 feet dcop in Villiers street, and offered him £50 for it, but he asked £200. Skilled evidence on both sides were ex amined, after which his Honor Judge Pohl man decided to visit the ground before giving his decision.'
REVIEW OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
REVIEW OF itHE VEEIK. The advent of Mr. Caine, I am told, is to make a great change in the mode of conducting bqsiness in the Council. Heo holds the "balance of power," and is determined to join neither side in the unhappy differences which have existed for a long while past in the Council. If he adheres to this resolution, I am sure he will become deservedly popular, because the ratepayers are thoroughly disgusted with the very loose manner in which the business of the Council has been for some timo past conducted. I am glad aloe to perceive that the Advertiser has taken a firm stand in - endeavoring to stamp out Donnybrook fair in the ootham Council, and has thus constituted itself the vigilant guardian of the interests of the burgesses generally. - The elections ace beginning to excite some interest in North M.elbourne. Mr. Burtt says lie will not be beat, and appears to tbink he has a prescriptive right to represent such a largo and iniluontial constituency, simply because on fo...
ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
ELECTIONS. The candidates already in the field have been feeling their way very carefully during the last week, and up to the pre. sent have, we believe, all received en. couragement more or less. Mr. Godfrey's explanation of his conduct in re Sir Chas. Darling has failed to satisfy a great many of his supporters. Mr. Arnold has come prominently to the front, but in the absence of any definite expression of his political proclivities it is impossible to predict what chance he lhs of success. Messrs. 13urtt, Curtain, Munro, and Dickson promise to address the electors shortly. A meeting of the friends and supporters of Mr. James Munro was held at Na.h' Rooms, Errol street, when a largo and influential committee was formed for the Ilotham division. It was decided that an active canvass be commenced at once, and that the Exocutive Committee moot in the above rooms every Monday and Thursday evenings. It is the intention of Mr. Munsro to address the.oelectors in the course of a few days.<...

A SUnoTITUTE FOR COAL.-?- poor peasant of Hassalt went the round of all the coffoo. houses with a sack containing earth, stating that he had found the means of heating rooms with that substance ?mprognated with a solution of soda.

He filled a scuttle three quarters with small coal, and the remaining fourth with vegetable moald, then dissolved a halfpenny.worth of common carbonate of soda in half a litre of water, and mixed up the solution with the rest. This quantity was found suffiient to warm a room for five hours.

Tales, Sketohes, &c. A HIDDEN WITNESS. "She is positively starving, and this money will be the arving of her." Thoese words were spoken in the course of a oonversation between my old friend lr. John Irwin, retired civil-servant, and myself ; both sitting on a fino September morn'ng in little summer.honse, in the gardon of our mutual friend the Rer?. Henry Tyson, Rector of Northwiok Balham, in the county of BeDorkshire. The subject of our conversation had boon a piece of. very flagitious behavior on the part of a wealthy retired tradesmaon, Harding by name, who lived in the neiolghbor. hood. A sum of: money, amounting to a hundred pounds, was owing by this man to a widow, living also close at hand, for work done by her husband, just before he died. The validity of the claimn had been denied by Mr. Harding, and paymont obatinateoly refuson . " I have made It all right, however," said my friend, with something approaching to a chuckle..

OUR LIBRARY TABLE. We have received from Messrs. Clar- son and Massina the March number of the "Australian Journal." We have had occasion previously to notice the vast strides in improvement whieh characterises this colonial serial, but this number sur- passes any previous ones, and is quite equal to the "Family Herald," the best of &nbsp; this particular class of English serials. We are glad to see that Mr. L. L. Smith is sufilelently recovered from his late serious illness to contribute another paper to the Colonial Lancet.
North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. THURSDAY, MARCH 5TH. CORONER'S INQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 5 March 1874
AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. THURSDAY, MAtRCH rnr. CORONER'S. INQUESTS. After several adjournments the inquest touching the death of the late Mr. Reynolds has been brought to a termination &nbsp; by the jury returning a verdict of wilful murder against Augustus-Ruperto Green. The "Crowner's Inquest" is a venerable and time honored institution, which has in its day effected a large amount of public good. But abuses have gradually crept in, and in Victoria especially the powers of the Court are most unmistakably abused. We have no hesitation &nbsp; in saying that in six cases out of &nbsp; every ten in which inquests take place, no inquiry is needed, but they are held apparently for no other reason than to put a " post mortem" fee in the pouch of a doctor to restore the equilibrum of his monetary system. In the case of the late Mr. Reynolds, the proper province of, the jury was to make a return &nbsp; of the cause of death, and this could have been done at the...
