Mr. SPUSGEON'B EXPEIIENCEs IN SCOTlAND. At a meeting held latetly in London, on a chapel. building scheme, Mr. Spurgeon related some of his impressions of Scotland. lie said--" He had the great pleasure and honour of addressing the General Assembly of the Free Church, aud after wards he preached at Perth and Dundee. Scotland was a capital place in the summer time for out. door preaching, and at Dundeo he preached in the park until between ten and eleven o'clock, it being light at that time. At Perth, he preached at a place called ' The Devil's Dining-room,' and if the devil was there at that time to dine, he hoped he gave himn some morsels which he would not be hlikely to digest. He was glad to find in Scotland a very large number of people who read his ser mous, and certainly there was no place where he was received with so much love and kindness as by the brethren in the North. HIe had himself for a long time been rather a nondescript in religion. Ho was a churchman, for he had be...

PUBLIC MEETING, BLACKWOOD. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 December 1866

PUBLIC IMEETING, BLACKWOOD. TI'o the Editor of tho Express. Sia-In your last week's issue I see is a report about a public meeting at this place, but your correspondent committed some gross errors, which I wish to correct. 1st. lie states I had said the Kyneton Road Board would assist us to get good roatds and bridges. This is incorrect. I said the Kyneton Roadl Board would surely assist us to get good roads and bridges, if we separated from Ballan. 2nd. I should have told the meeting, the Board of Education had conseunted to give the money toward building a school. lhis is also incorrect. I said we had received a letter from the secretary to the effect that our application would come finally before the Board of Education, and we expected every day a letter that the money was granted. Likewise he omitted that, at that meeting, seventeen voted for Mir. Magnus to be a tit person to be recommended to Government to fill the place as Justice of the Peace; and twenty-three voted fbr IMr. ...

On the 13th of November, O'Mlara, with two fine horses and a dray, left his half-erected hut, and proceeded to the Mloorabool for a load of potatoes.

BLACKWOOD. 20th December, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 22 December 1866

BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) 20th December, 1866. TWO public meetings were held last week, one at Barry's Reef and the other at Red Hill, preliminary to further action being taken with a view to making formal application to the Government to appoint a successor to Mr. Lawrence in his capacity of a Justice of the Peace. It was agreed on all sides that it was of urgent importance to proceed with as little delay as possible, and in order to expedite matters three gentlemen were nominated as eligible for the office. It appears that Mr. Baber had a majority in his favour at Barry's Reef; that the supportors of Mr. Magnus were in excess of those of Mr. Baber at Red Hill, whilst the votes in favour of the Rev. Mr. Ashe were greatly in the minority. All of the gentlemen above mentioned are well fitted to act us Justices, and I am not cognisant of anything relating to their status or attain- ments which should disqualify them from being enrolled on the Commission of the Peace.

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 December 1866

BAL LA N, (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) DETECTIVES Eason and Burral, with the black trackers from Melbourne, have found the remains of O'Mara. It would appear that, after Murphy had murdered him, he burnt the body, for in a heap of ashes the black trackers discovered the charred skull, toe nails, and a piece of the shirt worn by O'Mara. I will give you fill particulars next week. WHAT do some people want? What will please them ? Or, in the name of all that is useful, can you inform me to what genus of the Frog human the man belongs who is for ever, in all places and at all times, croaking dismal tidings from the quagmire of despond ? No matter how useful a change may be, or how much and long a reform has been required, it is never right when accom plished.
