In themselves, they have ino particular significance from those of any other used in our daily vocabulary, but considered in the light of the general tenor of my letter, and as' the bitter and painful product of the mischievous and criminal principles underlying the whole system of our hand laws, they assume a graver aspect,. and become charged with a thrilling interest, to those who are concerned in the speedy enactment of more righteous laws, having: for their object the breaking up of our pre sent insane and wicked system of alienation: of country laids, and a reparation, as far as can be brought about by law, of the enor mnous wrongs committed upon every indivi dual of t...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 29 October 1875
AGRICULTURAL N11TOf£8. The moist weather, alternating with sun shine, which has prevailed' lately, has been highly favorable to vegetation generally, and the crops and pastures are, as a rule; in a prosperous condition. In.the new districts the cereals are in an advanced state, in many districts the wheat coming out in ear, while the barley and oats are fully out, and will, if the weather becomes favorable, soon be ready for harvest. Reports of take-all having set in, chiefly among the oats, come from the Goulburn .district. So far, these are fortunately the only adverse indications to hand regarding the harvest.prospects, and it is to be hoped they will not spread. In the Kyneton district, it is stated that seldom. has the rapid growthl of all kinds of crops and grass been more apparent than during the.past fortniglht.
