No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 9 October 1863
IT MATTERS not how bad a general Jaw ,is in these advanced times, if that law is strictly enforced, for the more oppressive it is the more certain is its repeal; it is when a law is made for the purpose of oppression, and is only used for that pur pose, without regard to justice, that it is dangerous. We are led to make these remarks through witnessing the operations of the Town and Country Police Act, the uses and abuses of which are very imper fectly understood. The Town and Country Police Act is nothing but a -Jesuitical contrivance for assisting to work out an end. Every Government under our present Constitution, and the late Government in particular, has made local government a lkind of stock in trade; when any.private member asked for redress to any local grievance, he was told that it would be provided for in the Local Government Bill, or the Municipal Institu tion's Bill; when the Member for Rodney asked for money for a bridge over the Creek, he was referred to the Local Gov...

REDCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 9 October 1863
. REDOASTLE. (From our own Cborresponent) There is not much worthy of notice in mining, matters to report; the only guod crushing that has taken place the last fortnight, was from the Hit or Miss 'Com pany's claim; 19 tons turned out 152 oz.'s of gold. .There have been a few' other crushings, some of them very poor. Last Saturday morning, a man named Joseph Kirkham, committed suicide by cutting his throat; he was riding in a Spring-cart going to .Spring Creek,Y in company with a man in the employ of Mr. Walker, the. Butcher; he appeared quite sane. On reaching Staff9rdsbire Flat, hnd within one hundred yards of a hut in which there were several persons at the time, he sudd.enly drew 'his khifo and plunged it into his throat, completely separating the fore-part of the neck, and cutting to the bone There is at present no clue to the cause of his committing this rash act; there will be an enquiry on Wednesday, and I will endeavour to send the particulars, if possible, before you go to ...

Thursday, October 8th, 1863.. Before Mr. Willoby, P.Ml., and. Dr, Robinson, J.P. Illegal Detention of two Wooden Shut ters.-Youle v. Palling. William Youle charged Henry Rood Palling with removing, from, his property two shutters, which Palling considered be had a right to, in consequence of some understanding with O'Dell the former owner of the shutters and tentant of Mr. Youle. The Bench decided that Palling had no right to remove the property and ordered its restitution, or its value, and 2s. 6d, costs. RELICS OF A PASTr. AGE.-We wero lately showu some bones evidently those of the Mon. They were found about eight stiles from. the Dunstan, ten.feet under ground. The bones comprising the two legs are quite complete, measuring a little over five feet, thus a body and neck in proportion to the legs would iake the bird nearly fifteen feet high. Truly we have cause to rejoice that this fearful: animal is now extinct, for, if it still walked this earth, it would be more an object of dre...

In putting in any crops now, no gr.een manure should be used, it would increase the liability of the roots being deprived'of moisture early in the season. All:manure, at this season, should be well decayed,.and cow, or sheep's dung, or guano, is most desirable.

Our Column. For those who have nothing else to laugh at. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 16 October 1863
For those who have nothing else to laugh at. " What is the meaning of a backbiter ?" asked a clergyman at a Sunday-school 7 examination. This was a puzzle. It went down the class until it came to a simple 7 urchin, who said, "Perhaps it be a flea." 7 A story is told of a man selling a horse. The ivould-be purchaser inquired as to his leaping polvers, and asked, " Would he take timber?"-" He'd jump over your 7 head," said the other. A young gentleman, visiting his in- 7 tended, met a rival wh6 was somewhat advanced in years, and wishing to insult 7 him, inquired how old he was. " I can't exactly dlI," replied the other, " but I can tell you this-an ass is older at twenty than a man at sixty." In a debate on the leather tax, in 1794, in the Irish House of Commons, the ChancellBr of the Exchequer (Sir John Parnell) observed with great emphasis, that "in prosecution of the present war, every man ought to give his last guinea to protect the remainder." Mr. Vandeclure siid that ." however...
Original Poetry. THE NANNY-GOATS OF HEATHCOTE. [Suggested by Bromley's Billy-goats, Inspector Wilson, and the Town and Country Police Act.] [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 16 October 1863
THE NANNY-GOATS OFREATHOOTE. [Suggested by Bromley's Billy-goats, Inspector Wilson, and the Town and Country Police Act.] The Nanny-goats of Heathcote, SWhat pretty things ar.e they; Their colours are so varied, There are black, white, brown and grey. Some of them, too, are spotted, With coats as sleek as silk; And many a digger's wife and child Depends on them for milk. They always camp at home at night, S.And very aldom stray; The Nannzy-goats of "?eatheot. What useful things are they I The Nanny-goats of Heathcote, They help the widow through Her battle with grim poverty; And without them she can't do. For, in Heathcote's Court of Justice, We heard a widow say : I cannot keep my children If you take my goats away I! My neighbours don't complain of them; Then Wilson, why do you ? The Times begins to really think You've nothing else to do I And very soon in -Heathcote You'll hear the people say The Superintendent and his men, "What nuisances are they I Let every man in Heatheote, W...

Notice to Qorrespondents. Cono.-We'cannot publish your letter, the affair is betveen. the Sandhurst tailor, Mr. Webb, and the Editor (?) of the Despatch. It is a long journey to make for the purpose of summoning a man for a suit of clothes; Mr. Webb should have known better than to trust people so far away from home. We have several clothing establish ments at Heathcote, and a tailor too, so that there is no excuse for going to Sand hurst; but Sandhurst tailors will soon be gin to find that it is better to make dis tinguished visitors from other places pay on delivery, to prevent mistakes. WE have a letter from a fiiend at Whroo on the subject of MI'Vane and Henry ; we do not publish it, because all the abuse of Henry cannot injure M'Vane's cause. If Mr. M'Vane was guilty of the impropriety of. which he was accused by Henry, why did he not find it out before M'Vane fell out with Furze. It does not look well. for a man to sign for Hospital money, neglect to send it to the Treasurer, ...

(To the Editor of the McIvor Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 16 October 1863
(To the Editor of the 1clvor Times.) SR,- Though I am not particularly thin skinned, and therefore little troubled about what people may say about me, yet when the honour of my friends is involved in an assault upon me, it becomes my duty for their sakes to defend myself. There are men in Heathcote who are in the habit of greeting me in the most friendly manner, but who have nevertheless allowed them selves to become the medium of circula: ting. statements both here and in Mel bourne which they can neither prove nor justify. The sale of my interest in the Costerfield mine has been made the subject of a great amount of gossip, as though such things as the transfer of mining property were new, and of necessity must originate in something discreditable. I suppose the many instances of fraudulent transfer; and re-transfer connected with the interesting process of "going through the court," has made an impression that corruption is our. normal state, and that whoever sells- is a rogue, a...
