YEA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 August 1877

YEA. (FROM OUR ConRESPONDENTS.) The election resulted in the return of Messrs J. Quinlan and J. W. Cairns for the Shire Council by a large majority. over the defeated candidate, AMr Daniel M'Leish. sen. The polling was quiet and orderly, almost every persont keeping within the bounds of propriety, in spite of the large supply of brandy and water which the voters were invited to imbibe. No one envied Mr Quinlan the position of first favorite by eleven votes, which was generally anticipated, for judging by his past conduct, a more disinterested or consistent councillor never occupied a seat at the table. 'That Mr John W. Cairns should come off second best was hardly expected. It proves, however, that the ratepayers repose the fullest confidence in his ability to represent them. Let him enter on his duties as a public man resolved to work in harmony with the other councillors in conducting the legitimate business of the shire:with a single eye to the public good, forgoet. ting old sore...

THE SHIRE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 August 1877

, THE SHIRE ELECTIONS. - The shire elections have become a matter of history, and the ratepayers have decided who are to be their repre sentatives for the ensuing twelve mouths. There being no unusual question to diseuss, nor any bone of contention between the councillors to call for any exciting interest among the electors, the contest passed off very quietly. A little was enid, but a good de'l more was done, and some worked in great style, if not for at least against aspi rants. There were groups of voters to be seen here and there during the day expressing their opinions of the different candidates; the lhkelihood of such a one being returned, and the possibility of so and so being like the cow's rail- all behind. Each 'of the would be legislators being on his own ticket, they all worked calmly but with a will, and were corm mendable in their assiduous ,ttentions to the free and independent electors.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 August 1877

MELBOURNE LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Railway mntters are still t, the fore as topics for press andl people, and the route to Oakloinuh is still a sturmbling-block which prevents conslderlat on of other lines, by absorbing the attention of both tile Govern nlent and tile I2egislature. Since my last the Ministerial pIlley in conneotion with that subject hanR undergone another variation, and the route, asn now decided by the Assembly, starts from the Morgue (a suggestive ter minus), and follows the north insteud of the snothl bank of th1 Yarrn, thus avoiding the "vandnlism" referred to in my last in connec lion with the Botani.rcl iairdens.

HIARMLESS TLIUNDER. (7o the Editor of the Staodard). Sin,-Allow me by means of your columns to thus characteriso tile great indignation mceeting of Tuesday night last. Who, pray, was indignant ? Mr Whiting, because he was not elected President? (oh, save thie mark i) and so he gets his factotum, iMr Cronin, to move an indignant resolution, and factotum No. 2 to second it. Now, I think that the censured councillors were right in frustrating any nice little games that we-r being played to put George Whiting in the chair, until a full meeting of the council were present. It's all very well to say that the gentlemen named in the resolution should have gone to the Council Chambers, and accopted thodecision of the majority; but if all the councillors had boon there, the majority would perhaps have been on the other side.

DUTCH ANNA. (Continued). [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 18 August 1877

DUTCH ANNA. (Continued). Then there rang through the wide deerted halls a shrill, despairing shriek. whilst far and near, above, below, around, arose mocking and insulting laughter. Dauntless as Anna was, and firm as wts her reliance upoa the protection of Heaven, it would perhaps be too much to say that she felt no quickening of the pulse, no throbbincs and fluterings of the heart as she listened. But surprise, and a strong desire to penetrate the mystery, greatly preponderated over any feelings of alarm, acd her first impulse was imme. diately to endeavor to find her way to the scene of the disturbance. But a moment's consideration showed her how foolish and imprudent this would be, totally unacquainted as she was with the house, and with no better light than the feeble glimmer of the lantern. If it was the work of designing persons, such a step would be but to expose herself to danger, whilst, if the effect of supernatural agency, she could neither learn what they wished to conce...

Had the newly elected councillors this time-honored maxim before-their eyes on Tuesday last when the hour of meeting arrived ? I think not, or they would hkrdly have been seen dodging their fellow-councillors and the bellman round the town, and the question arises, why this remissness of duty ?
