To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 28 July 1866
To the Editor of the Exprvess. Sin--On looking over the Guardiaon newspaper of the 21st inst., I observed one of the most dis. graceful letters I have over met with in a news. paper. I should have been inclined to put more confldoneo in it had I known the author to be a PrIotostant, instead of a Catholic, as he professes to be. The writer is, in my opinion, "a wolf in shoop's clothing." I cannot conco how any Catholic could stand by and listen to such language as he quotes without protesting against it. Few neon of our denomination could listen to such words without rosent;ng the insult on the spot. The real meaning of thin letter must be apparent to every one. Itho Cloiatrf gentleman is simply having a fling at one or two parties who are obnoxious to him. I hope my follow.Catholics will see the real drift of this letter; it is calculated to brood discord among people who have hitherto lived on the monst amicable terms, irrespective of religious diflbrcnces. Should Mlr. Taylor again...
CORRESPONDENCE. MR. EDGAR AND THE GUARDIAN. To the Editor of the Bacchus Marsh Express, [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 28 July 1866
UORRESPONDENCE1 MR. EDGARC AND TIHE GUARD)IAN. To the Edifor of the Bacchnts Marsh Express, Sir--I soo, by the West Bourkl Gumr'diam of 21st July that the editor of that plaper, unmindful of the experience of the last month, has booeen again vilifying me in no slight degree. Io xpected, after the mild correction administered to that gentle mua on account of some mis-statements ns the Guardican of 7th July, that the matter would have ?kropped; but I find that, exasperated at having boon taken up so sharply, he has only been waiting for a slight pretence to have another fling at me. This time arrain he has shot very wide of the mark, and it affords mse very great pleasure that I can show the incorrectness of nearly every sentence in his article of the 21st July. But in order to do this, I must give a short account of how matters have gone, on the subject of the 3ulban Farmers' Commnon. When I entered on possession of Monyong Station, two years and a half ago, 1 found that the Coummon ...
To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 28 July 1866
T'o the Editor, of the Expreas. sliu-Un the 21st instant ia letter appeared in the Guardian, signed D. IH., one of the most singu lar combinations of hot piesn and divinity that over was penned. The writer has evidently graduated in Bourke-stroet, otherwise he could not have given such a graphic description of the small-goods trado carried on there. 1 was going to say the structure of the letter (is that the right word, Mr. Edito '), if not elegant, is at least somowhat or, ii nal; and if the talent of the writer could only be turned to proper account, he might excel even the architectural skill displayod in someo of the public works, which, as Mr. Crook would describe m h his high poetical flights, span the noble rivers that umeander'through the fertile and lovely valley of the Marsh. It strikes me, Mr. Editor, you must have lhad one of those unique designs in your mind's eye when you wrote the loader in which you are charged with putting the cart before the horso. I dare say you d...

GRASS FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 28 July 1866
GRASS FItRTILTSBRS. Good barnyard manure will always supply the right proportions, to promote a luxuriant growth of any kind of the cultivated grasses. It willU supply silicia, without which tall grass could not maintain an erect position during driving storms of rain, when furious winds sway it back and forth like waves of the sea. Grass needs an external coating of silicia to give the stems suitable stiff ness, about :as much as animals need bones to on chemists tell us ' The grasses contain phosphoric acid, sulphuric acid, carbonic acid, lime, magnesia, peroxyde of iron, pota;h, soda, chloride of potassium, chloride of sodium, carbon, and nitrogen. Now we may supply any amount we please of any two or three of thee ingredients, without improving the grass; mnay, we may provide abundance of them all, but so long as the soil is deficient in any one of these ingre'lienta, we cannot expect good cropsl. Sup. pose phosphorous is the muiineg ingredient, the grass will be feeble, and the ...

AGRICULTURAL. JI01S OIW ]IJ EDN(.IL (ro?, TIns I??xnot . YI.tonasOlr.) l,r in I5omecwhat curious to note from time to time the opifnios enunciatle on the subject of horse.blrecding, and how great is the confusion of thought and absence of practical knowledge on the snllject, We find horse-shows everywhere adopted by agriultural societies, and generally form no smn'l attraction to their exhibitlons.

SomI: mren think that the gratification of curiosity is the end of l:noi:ledge ; some the love of firmre ; some the pleasure of dispute ; some the necessity of supporting themselves by their knowledge ; but the real use of all knowledge is this, that we should dedicate that reason which was given us by God to the use and advantage of rman.

THE OPENING OF THE NEW PRESBY TERIAN OHUROH, BALLAN. SA1BATII lastbrought with it the long-looked for day of opening of this beautifif Church. The new building is, perhaps, the most promi nent, as it is certainly the finest erection in this rising township. The style of architecture is modern Gothic. The buildin' is of bluestone rubble, every alternate stone lhaving' a four inch sneck, and is neatly tuck-pointed. It stands on a base two feet high, while the outer walls are supported by twenty abutments of freestone, with small bluestone snecks let in, and finished at the tops with two weatherinFes. The fine large window in front of the edifice consists of freestone reveals and arches, and is divided by two mullions nine feet high, being finished in the same way both externally and internally.
