A lady who erpended her anxieties chiefly upon a large collection of gold-fish (roelate thue I'eVterfn Independent), took an Iriah servanlt.gir recently into her household. und entrusted her with the charge of her finny substitutes for a family. InI the directions na to the care of them, the lady gave strict injunctions that the fish were to be kept particularly clean. Jiddy was up early, butt her mistraes habitually slept late. For the first day or two after the engagement of the noew servant,, the fialh sonoed to be ailing ; one or two had come ho tthe top with their stomaohs up ward, and others were swimming very languidly, with their gold scales singularly broken and discolored. , Happening to rise earlier thaon neunl on t th third or fourth day, the mistrossfoond Biddy at her morn ing's aoccupation.

The Railway Station. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 12 September 1876

The Rallway Station. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) Stn,-'The minority have ruled, and the Ilorouth Coucil decided that no action is to hbe taken to obtain the. removal of the railway station from its present ridiculous site to a commanding position at the north end of Percy street, which would be easy of access to all parts oi the town. If it were taken for granted that the station was to he opposite the Custom House, I could readily understand opposi tion from the south end of the town to such a proposal, but in the present case nothing of the sort is asked, a suoggetion is merely made, that provided there are no engineering diffinulties, the station might as readily be built on a hill as a swamp; but to this very reasonable request no end of absurd opposition is raised by some of our iseo men, who know so much about railways; for instance, one promulgates a doctrine that the Government only wait an opportunity to upset an ast of Parlia ment and take away the line, anot...

THE BRANXHOLME AND CASTERTON RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 12 September 1876

THE BRANXHOLME AND CA9s TERTON RAILWAY. Tile Portlanders who 'but a month ago were in such exuberant spirits over their prospects of getting the Government to promise the construction of the branch line of railway from Branxholme to Casterton and Coleraine, do not take kindly to the defeat they have sustained. Tho exponent of puhlio opinion at Portland' has announced that the line does not, find favor with the present Ministry. "It 'is evident from M'r. Jones's reply," said thie Guaadian a fortnight ago, " that he considers the line front Port lad to flnamilton a mistake; but now the mistake is made, he will not move one step to set it right," Thie one step they wisll the Minister of ltailways to take is to give them another lile in order to make the one now in course of construction pay. It is nothing to the Portlsndcrs that other parts of the colony, with tell times the trade, have already been overlooked in favor of Portland; it is nothing to tlhem that the authorised loan will o...

MELBOURNE. Melbourne, August 8. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 12 September 1876

M ELB OURNE. (PROM o0L OWN oOROESPO.IDaNT.) I\lelbourne, August 8. The Governor's Bll, that hope of society, that paradise of debutantoes, has become as reflection. Brilliant above all its predecessors, the apotheosis of the anticipations of two lung years, it has flashed .across' us as the track of a meteorite illumining for the moment but suddenly disappearing. Last nlight a funereal procousion wended its way to the bhalls of dazzlng brightness. The length of it may be judged from 'tie fact that one carriage which ranged into line at the Immigrants Home had behind it sixty. three vehicles In sight are it reached the gates of the Government Domain. In one continuous illuminated stream the visitors poured up,the departing carriages with their flashing lights giving variety to the line. The bulk of the vistrors did not attain their haven until dancing had fairly began; but when they settled down to the contemllation of tile scene, they were speedily aware that the spectacle presented...

A Precisian. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 12 September 1876

A Precisinn.-Thlro is a doorkeeper in a theatre so very strict that hle won t admit an argument unless it has a ticket. A man in a small town in Maine recently wrote to the Handel and Haydn Society in Boston, asking how much they would charge to comeo down there and give a concert. The reply was that it would be chloper to bring the town to Boston. On girls fishiog, an American paper says: -" Four of theim haId succeeded in landing a little flounder. No sooner had the fish struck the ground than nil exclaimed in ono voice,' Ouch! take it away. Ough, the nasty tlhingl Then they hold up their skirts and gathler round the fisht,, nod all the time the one who caught the lish is holding the lineiin both hands, with her foot on the pole, as though shi had an evil-disposed goat at the other end, which she expected to butt at her any rmoment.

Town Clerk's Salary. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 12 September 1876

Town Clerk's Salary. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) 81n,-I do not know what steps will be taken in re the Town Clerk's salary. I do not obj-ct to him getting better paid if the work he does entitles him to receive a larger salary. The only issue to be tried is simply this:-" Does he get fully paid for the time he devotes to municipal matters 1"'' Ithink he goes rather besides the question when he eposks of the posi tion he is expected to keep up. Who expects it of him? Not Portland real dents, who know pretty well the extent of oneto anothor's income. He is no more expected to keep up a position on two or three hundred a year than our Mayor is expected to vie with the magnificent entertainments with which his brother Mayor in Melbourne occasionally delights the citizens. It Tu.rn Clerk likes prieties, let him give them, but he most not ask the general ratepayers to pay for his pleasant evenings. When I put in a requisition for an In crease in my salary, I will not ask the...

LOWERING THE FLOORING APPROACH TO THE NORTH JETTY. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 12 September 1876

LOWERING THE FLOORING APPROACH TO THE NORTH JETTY. Is lees than a week, and with little or no interruption to a large traffio, Mr. 1rtKIS0aos, the Government Inspector, by means of scroew-jacks and a number of OVEnIEN and lon 'es workmen, has secooeded in lowering the approach flooring to the goods shed facing Julia street and fronting the north jetty on the west side from the sea ; and what speaks well for the change is that neither the stone nor gravel with which the wooden floor ,as covered had to be displaced. The end;re floor, an enor. mous weight, was lot down readily. anu nuw the oarerior are using rte floor as if nothing of importanoe had happened.
