MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 24 August 1865
In reference to the proceedings of the itinerating commission on the Chinese inter preter question, the Ararat Advertiser says: -" A commission of inquiry, consisting of Colonel Champ, Mr. W. Templeton. P. M., and Captain Kay, IR. N., Clerk of the Execu tive Council, sat at the court-house, on Tuesday last, for the purpose of inquiring into the matter in which Chinese interpre ters generally performed the duties of their office. They had previously visited Mary borough, and there heard the views enter tained on the subject by Chinese as well as Europeans. From thence they came to this town, where the inquiry was pursued. The gentlemeh composing the commission took the opinions of those of the European in habitants who were conversant with the sub ject, as well as the opinions of a large num ber of the more respectable class of the Chi nese themselves. Apparently they have spared no trouble to render their report as complete and reliable as possible, and, judg ing by the selections t...
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 24 August 1865
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE FREE PRESS. Sir,-I addressed you some time back on the subject of the "Hunt Club," and feeling very much interested in the same I should be glad to know how they are progressing and also who are the supporters of the long honoured English sport of hunting. The master of the hounds deserves great eredit for the interest he takes in his dogs and the indefatigable zeal he uses to make upa good pack. There is no denying the fact that the Englishman wherever he is does enjoy some of the pastimes and pleasures he had in the old country. I can fancy to myselfithe pleasure and lu xury Mr. Bloxsidge enjoys after a good day's sport, when in the evening, sitting in his 'old arm chair" with his arms clasped over his comfortable looking body and his face beaming with satisfaction, feeling the pleas ant influence of the fire, and the scene and the tranquil sense of repose and enjoyment which none can so truly appreciate as those who spend their daily...
GENERAL CAMERON'S RETIREMENT FROM THE COMMAND IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 24 August 1865
GENERAL CAMEROF'SRETIIEh-MENT 1 FROM BIHE COIMMAND IN NEW t ZEALAND. t The following letter from Lieutenant General Cameron to Sir George Grey, ap- I pears in the correspondence laid before the 1 General Assembly the other day :-" Head quarters, Auckland, 17th July, 1S65.-Sir, -I have the honor to forward for your Ex cellency's information the copy of a letter and its enclosures, which I have received by the last mail from England, from which you will see that my resignation of the command of her Majesty's forces in this colony, for warded to me in February last, has been ac cepted, and permission granted to me to re turn to England. From a private letter which I have had the honor of receiving from his Royal Highness the Field-Marshal Commanding-in-Chief, it would appear that his Royal Highness, as well as Earl de Grey, would prefer my retaining the command for some time longer, if any serious operations are still to be undertaken; but looking at the unfortunate consequences of the...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 24 August 1865
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. FUNERAL.-On Friday afternoon a large and solemn procession could be seen wend ing its way along the Newtownship, towards the General Cemetery, conveying the re mains of the late Mr. John Butler-whose death we noticed in our last issue-for inter ment therein. A large number of people at tended to pay the last tribute of respect to &nbsp; the deceased gentleman - indeed the funeral procession was one of the largest that ever passed through Kilmore, a circumstance which bears ample testimony to the esteem deceased had been held in through life. BURGLARY.-On the night of Sunday last &nbsp; an attempt was made to effect an entrance to the shop of Mr. Glover bootmaker,Sydney street, by taking some bricks from the south wall of the building. The thief or thieves must have thought the wall was built of sin gle brick, but finding such was not the case further effoi'rts ere abandoned. Hutvr.-The Kilmore hounds will meet at Willowmavin loll-gate on Friday th...
THE DAYLESFORD MURDER. EXECUTION OF DAVID YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 24 August 1865
THE DAYLESFORD MURDER. EXECUTION OF DAVID YOUNG. From Tuesday's "Herald." The closing scene of the dreadful tragedy which was enacted at Daylesford in the month of December last was enacted yester- day morning, when the convict David Young was executed at the Castlemaine Gaol. From the moment of his arrest, and even after the unanimous verdict of a jury of his country men had been given against him, the con- flict of public opinion continued in a surging state of doubt and anxiety as to the pri- soner's guilt, and there never has been an ex- ecution in Victoria about the justice of which the public mind has been so much divided. The Executive Government carefully ana- lysed all the statements, and arrived at the determination that nothing had been shown which should lead them to interfere with the verdict of the jury. The Venerable Arch- deacon of Castlemaine, prompted by kindly feelings and a Christian spirit, determined after his conversations with the culprit to ascertain the tru...

C~?r'- t cr~·"· ionternnmrar' m~ his juSUC profuse anent remarks in our last publication relative to the Municipal roll-stuffing, and as usual he talks at random, making asser tions as base as the cause he tries to defend, and even more rotten than the persons for whom he lays down his character-if he ever had any. We have again to state that no arguments are adduced which require notice, indeed he is standing on a foundation where, let him be ever such a profound reasoncr, anything he could bring to bear could not repress plain facts. "Facts are stubborn things," and we defy the "Exa miner" or anyone else to deny the truth of the statements set forth in this journal that the burgess list was stuffed, the ratebook and other sources being made the instru ments thereof. Our respectable contempo rary palliates this by saying:-" The ' Free " Press' now admits that the names were or "dered to be put on t...

LEGISLATIVE COU 0ILu. TcesDIT, Acorsr, 209 165. In the Legislative Council, on Tuesday, .Mr. Cole presented a message from His Excellency the Governor. The message called attention to the address vol-ed by the Legislative Assembly, last week, on the sub ject of the stoppage of Treasury payments (owing to the laying aside of the Appropria tion-cum-Tariff Bill), and expressed the hope that active legislation with regard to the fi nances of the country might be promptly re sumed. DIr. Fawkner moved that a message be sent to the Legislative Assembly, intimating that the Council vas prepared to pass the Appropriation Bill at once, if sent up by it Mr. Fellows cautioned the House against coming to a hasty conclusion, and moved an adjournment until to-day. After some remarks from Mr. Cole, the motion fqr adjournment was agreed to, and the House adjourned accordingly. -

"EXAMINER" AND THE "FREE PRESS." -4-~--- (TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE 'f FREE PRESS." Sir,-How cheerful to a mixed community such as ours, in those dull times, to be so in terestedly engaged in perusing your open, candid, manly revelation on the actions and proceedings of our infallable and sincerely self-interested councillors, together with the crippled defence made for them, by their counsellor, mouthpiece, and;savior, the honor able, upright, Dozy! How he do extinguish himself? What a pity this freak of nature did not accomplish the return of his white necked "choker" at the last election here, then he would secure for himself a commis sion of the peace; thus becoming a "sine qua non" to the Council, a last~ig ornament to the Bench, a cyclopaedia to his enlight ened friendly magistrates, and a desideratum without which the inhabitants of Kilmore cannot exist. How he do understand the Acts, and the three theological virtues! He reminds us of the monkey the higher he goes, the more he s...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. MECHANICS' INSTITUTE BALL. ----~-- TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS. Sir,-There are several genteels here, who, under the garb of religjs bcruplei, gene rally play the hypocrite. The gentlemen appointed to influence and solicit parties to purchase tickets for the above Ball have been rather deceived by this class of devotees, who are too religious to be seen in a public Ball Room, euaP.ge,; in a gracoi:l waltz with a 1fir Pa:'tu.r; but wlhen the lt ir;t r",t.s? them, they have no scruples whatever, to play kiss in the ring on New Year's Day under the remote seeludvd evergreens at the Dry Creek. Yours, &e., A DANCER.

THE CONNECTION OF KYNETON AND BEECHWORTH BY RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 31 August 1865
THE CONNECTION OF KYNETON AND BEECHWOBTH BY RAILWAY. (71ox THn Esrro ox Ua-us.) The report of the Parliamentary Commit tee on Railway extension, is, we think, both meagre and inconclusive. They have in their wisdom thought fit to recommend the con. struction of a branch railway from Goorong on the present Murray line to Benalla, and from thence to Belvoir on the Murray, op posite Albury, with a branch line from Wan garatta to Beechworth. The chief recom mendation for this route is the small quan tity of purchasue land taken up, and the low estimated costs at which the line may be con structed, but we think we can rnysak i-t -de?nt LL1 bt mAving Kyneton iuster 1 ;f (h (t r2 the point of divergence, the cost of construe- I tion will not be greatly increased, qnd, the immense advantage will be gained of'g.iols and passengers saving neatly 50 miles in the journey from Beechworth to Melbourne. Such an absu d round about route as that proposed by the Committee would never be dreamt of in ...
TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AT MOBILE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press and Counties of Bourke and Dalhousie Advertiser — 31 August 1865
TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AT MOBILE. The main ordnaaice depot of the United States forces was blown up, making a tre mendous report, and spreading the wildest consternation throughout the city. The magazine was located in Marshall's ware house, situated at the corner of Lipscomb and Commerce-streets, and the present ap. pearance of the city in that neighbourhood beggars description. An artillery officer states that there were between 2000 and3000 boxes of fixed ammunition stored in the building. The ammunition was brought from Augusta, Ga; after the surrender, and was to have been removed on board steamers in front os the city. He thinks that the ex plosion occurred while preparations were taking place for the transfer. Many persons are known to be buried beneath the ruins, and the commanding general has employed all available labour to rescue those still alive. All the prominent buildings from St. Louis street up, including Commerce. Water, and Front-streets, were about completely demol i...
