AGRICULTURE IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 June 1870

AGtRICULTUREI IN CALIFORNIA. California farmers (says the. New York Tribune). are begianing to learn that simple wheat raising is not farming, and.that there is a limit-which has been nearly reached in the long settled valleys-to the productive ness even of soils which originally produced 50. to 60 bushels of wheat to the acre. Blight a'nd rast have been, very much.blamed of late years for the failure of grain in the counties of Santa Clara, San Mateo, Nupa, Marin, and Souomai the truth, however, would have it laid at the door of a system of cultivation which has. been unceasing in its demands upon the productiveness of the lands, and which has never done anything. whatever to restore to it any of those con stituents of which each crop despoils it. Ten years of continuous wheat or barley raising will, exhaust the best land anywhere, when no restorative is used, and where ploughing to the depth of but six inches is practised; and this one crop and no rest system always prevailed: in....

MADAME PIERRE BONAPARTE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 9 June 1870

MADAME' PtIERRE BONA'PARTE. One day when Prince Pierre Bonapart, was driving to the races some part of the harness gave way. Fortunately a saddler's shop was near by; and while the broken harness was being repaired the Prince regaled himself with a glass of water, and discovered how. marvellously pretty was the saddler's daughter, who served him, and' curtsied so modestly to his Royal Highness. True, he had seen beauty, in its most artistic and cultivated forms, bewitching-and dazzling enough to turn.even a prince's head a score of times. But this roadside flower captured :the Prince with the strategy of loveliness,. and his heart was left behind him as he rode on to the races. The. Prince,, hke other men, foupd.it difficult to live without a heart and: he was not long in winning that of the saddler's pretty daughter. The story can, hardly be repeated too often, as.what suet ceeded was so knightly, and true and withal so.rare, The Prince decided to marry her, and so placed her at sc...

A .GEELONG ROMAN.CE. DEATH AND SALE OF AN INFANT. Melbourne and Ballarat having contri buted. their items of sensationaliss, it was not to.be supposed that the ' Pivot' would remain 'quiet,' and ' make no sign' of vitality and. importance. Hence, we were not surprised when the wire flashed to us the intelligence of- what, were it not for one feature, would be. a farce of the broadest description; As it is, the matter is a mixture of the comic and the tragic, the comic pre vailing.. Some of our-readers..may remember a case that occupied many days in the courts at home where a child was foisted upon one who would be a fond parent by a clever wife. The fraud, however, was discovered, and the child did not come into the possession of the fortune that the schemer. designed it should: The Geelong affair is the reverse of this,.and itis the child who turns out to be the-heir to a large property, and is. said: to have-been,sold by his mother to.a lady who. desired to give her liege lord pro...

LEGISLATIVE ASSE3IBLY. Tuesday,-June 21, 1870. The greater portion of Tuesday's sitting of the Legislative Assembly was devoted to the consideration of the grant for the purposes of education, An amended estimate was brought down by message from the Gov. ernor, increasing the amount to £189,7S9, and specifying the purposes for which the vote was to be applied. Taking advantage of this, Mr Higinbotham moved that the sum of £769 for salaries in connexion with new non-vested schools be struck out. To this Mr Fellows raised an objection that the whole proceeding was irregular, that no schedule should have been submitted, as to define the manner in which the grans should be distributed was in fact repealing a portion of the Education Act by a vote in the Ap propriation Bill. A number of points, both on one side and the other, were raised, which can best he understood by a reference to the report. Ultimately the Chairman of Comn mittees-Mr F L Smyth- ruled the objec tion taken by Mr Fello...
