CRICKET MATCH. MANSFIELD v. ALEXANDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 23 February 1878

CRICKET MATCH. -- MANSFIELD V. ALEXANDRA. The Alexandra Cricket Club suffered its first defeat this season on Saturday last, at the hands of Mansfield. Our local players started in Doran's coach at 6.30 a.m., reaching Doon a little after 10. After pre;iminartes had been arranged, the Alexandra eleven took the field. J. Sadleir (the captain) and Bromfield were the first representatives of Mansfield, but the first ball from Hewitt disposed of the former player. E. Sadloir filled the vacancy, and be gan with a two and a single off Hewitt In Wollaston's second over, Bromfiold was given out leg before wicket. 2-0-10. H. Elvins then became partner with Sadleir, who was playing very carefully. After scoring 13, the latter was bowled by Wollaston. Elvins played a really excellent innings, but was unfortunately run out after making 12. The first innings closed for a total of 50, a figure which would have been considerably reduced but for the bad fielding of the Alexandra team. After a short ...

UNDER THE CIIICUMSTANCES. I soon discovered Ada. She had on the most spor less of white dresses trimmed with sky-blue ribbon. Her hat was If ira elicate FIencih grey, and a stiff veil was attached to it. She was sittinir with her moiter, and the lion Adolphus St. Clire was standing by her vile. I apporached, and was greeted by Mits Hooker with a smile of welcome. She asked me, in a loud voice (s loudl Ia bt the peaople sitting near, and whom I recognised as visitors at the "Grand hotel"), if I lhad been breakf,isting with Lord Couhtney, and how her ladyship was that morning. I replied, and then sat down to talk to bliss Hooker. The Hon Mr St. Clare did not seem very pleased to see me, I thought, and he frowned at Ada as I took tmy seat. As for Ada, she was in excellent spirits, and we rattled away together on all sorts of topics. IIer conversation was witty, and that she was well read, her remark under the following circum stances will bhow. Some people who had evidently never been ...

Johnson v James Blain.-Ille gally demanding excessive trespass rates on 185 sheep. Mr Coster ap peared for the complainant, and in opening the case stated that lie brought the proceedings under the 33rd, 28th, and 29th section of the Impounding Act. He explained to the bench that the point at issue in the case was whether land from which a crop had just been removed was tillage land in the meaning of the Act. He contended it was not. and would bring witnesses to prove that the paddock from which the sheep were impounded had no crop in it, but was simply a field of stubble, He then called Alfred Johnson, who, on being sworn, stated that he was manager for h;s father, Mr Henry Johnson, and that he gave notice to the poundkeeper of his intention to sue for' the excessive damages. He remembered the 5th of Febr...

Tum approaching Agricultural Show is one of those events which call for special attention on the part of all who feel any vital interest in the welfare and prosperity of the district. Though atfitat sight interesting to only a limited sec. tion of the community, a little reflection will show that It is by such matters that we are enabled to gauge the extent of our progress in all that tends to make the district rich and prosperous. It is very evident that it is to its natural resources, and the skilfil and judicious devolopemont, that we must look for our future advancement, and conse quently it is diflicult to exaggerate the importance of any movement having that object in view. In almost every district in the colony agricultural societies have performed a most impor tant part, and we are inclined to award them even a higher position in pro moting the material advancement of ...

GOBUR. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 2 March 1878

GOBUR. (FIOM A SPECIALt CORRESPONDENT.) The. election for a member of the Beechworth Mining Bonrd passed off very tamely here on Saturday last. Miners generally appeared to feel no interest in the election; and many ex pressed their desire to see mining boards abolished altogether, as they deemed them an excrescerce on the Minining Statute. From a Parliamentary notice, I saw that the hen. member for Ararat was goin,, to move tor their abolition, and, judging from the little interest taken in the election of mining boards, their speedy abolition will bhe a judicious step. During the severe gales prevailing at Christmas the Wesleyan Church, of Gnobur, was blown down. It is now being rapidly re-erected, and, I am informed, when finished, its re opening will be commemorated by a public ten meeting. " Am I my brother's keeper," is a question often proposed to us.. That to a great extent the ties of nature and the claims of hulmanity enjoin upon us all the free and uureetricted exerciseo ...

EUROPEAN TELEGRAMS. WAR IN 'HE EAST. We are indebted to our Melbourno contem poraries for the following extracots: LONDON, Feb. 25. The peace conditions demanded by Russia include a prohibition of the passage of the Dardanelles to all war ships, but free navi gation to merchant vessels; an indemnity of 1400 million roubles, to cover which Turkey is required to cede six of her ironclad squadrun. the cities of Kars, B]atoum, Bayuzid, and Ardahan, and the territory comprised in the Russian occupation in Asia Minor.

THE DINNER. In the evening at about eight o'clock the usual annual dinner was given in the shire hall. There were present Mr Hunt, M.L.A., member for this district, the judges, stewards, and several members of the association. In the absence of Mr Whiting (the president). Mr W. Merry (ex-president) occupied the chair, and Mr Christie the vice-chair. After the usual loyal toasts had been drunk, the chairman proposed the " Parliament of Vio toria," coupled with the name of Mr Hunt, M.L.A. Mr Merry said, in proposing thu toast, it was not his intention to connect the meeting with party politics ; he considered that such things should be avoided. They had met that evening to celebrate the annual show of the agricultural society. The toast was then drunk with enthusiasm. Mr Hunt, on rising to reply, thnnked those present for the hearty way in which they had drunk the toast. ile quite concurred with the chairman in saying that party politics should not be brought before the meeting.

WESLEYAN BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 2 March 1878

WESLEYAN BAZAAR. As announced by advertisement, the ladies' committee for a bazaar, in aid of the erection of a Wesleyan Church in Alexandro, resolved upon taking advantage of the show day and the locality of the show yards for holding their fair. A large marquee was erected opposite the gates at such a distance as not to interfere with the entrance of cattle into the grounds. At about the time the show opened the ladies who exercised authority in tie bazaar were prepared to receive visitors, and front a little later than this until night closed upon the scene they continued to do a very thriving business. Large as their tent appeared to be, it proved far from equal to the accommruda tion of the crowds who sought admission. Two compartments were provided, one for refreshments, which appeared to be well patronised, the inner one, an entrance charge to which was made, for the bazaar. There were displayed in great profusion articles both useful and ornamental, which the deft fingers of...

SHOCKING ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE. The usually quiet neighbourhood of South Yarra was startled on fMonday morning by the report that a shocking suicide had been commited. Inquiries being made, it was ascertained that Mr Alexandra Gray, the keeper of a smalnl store in Chapel street, who had formerly been drill-instructor to the Southern Rifles, but was dismissed through his intemnerate habits, got up a little after 4 o'clock in the morning, deliberately stropped his razor, and drew it aeross his throeat from ear to ear. His wife immediately raised the alarm, and Constable M'Coppin happening to be panesing at theotime, entered the house, and found the wretched man weltering in his, blood. He was immediately removed to tlihe Alfred Hospital, where be received surgical treatment, butt not the slightest hopes were hold out of his recovery, as the windpipe was severed. On making inquiriea lost night, we learned that he was still alive, although in a very weak state. The unfortunate man was know...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 2 March 1878

MELBOURNE LETTER. (FROM oUR OWN COI1RESPONDENT). So fair as any posetive developments are concerned the crisis remains sta tionery, but the political atmosphere is decidedly muggy and disagreeable, rendered all the more so by the stagnation of the past fortnight, which is by no means conducive to the. moral health of the community. Social and commercial relationslhips are beginning to be prejudicially affected by the pre sent state ofnfiairs. The air is teeming with libels, and actions for deliamation and slander are beard on every side. The amusing feature of the thing is that the partisans of both sides appear to be sublimely unconscious of their sins in this direction, and ai deprecation of personaltlies is a favorite prelude to a scathing scandal. The very adver tisers era beginning to take sides, and the bad example of the Government with respect to the Daily Telegraph, which provoked reprisals by the mer chants upon tile .Agce, has lbeen still further bettered by the Iteform L...
