PERAMBULATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 June 1870
PERAMBULATOR; I did not make my appearance last week, for the simple reason that I thought the weather biting enough, and did not feel it necessary to pinch the noses of people when I felt satisfied that the cool and damp atmosphere would do all that a fond heart could desire-by chilling the nasal organs of our townspeople-and besides I must say I felt not a little annoyed at the manner in which a previous communication of mine was curtailed. I almost swore I would never make an appearance again, so irate was I at such treatmei.t, but upon a little cool consideras tion 1 thought it better to pocket the insult than kick up a row over the affair and thus deprive myself of the only medium within reach by which I can scale the ladder of fame, Well, I have pocketed the insult and, as candour is the only virtue to which. I lay the slightest claim, I might as well tell you that I would not have done so had I been fortunate enough to be a member of the Borough Council, the Hospital Committe...
POLICE AND THE LIQUOR ACT OF 1865. (To the Editor of the Free Press) [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 June 1870
POL1OE AND THE LIQUOR ACT) OF 1865. (To the Editor of the Free Preso) SIR,-While a general and almost unanimous feeling exiera throughout the country for a change in our Liquor Laws, the police have become suddenly awakened to the importance of enforcing tIhe proviw s no of the present Act. I am by no means insensible of--nor do I underestimate the valaable services of the police, but in the matter of carrying out the provisions of the Wme, Beer, and Sp:r:t Statute of 1865. I have always held that they have been sin gularly remiss in their duty, Had the stringent measures lately adopted in Melbourne been generally enacted throughout the country, it is d. uhtful whether there would be at the present time such a unanimous feeling in favour of Mr O P Smith's Amendment Bill now before Parliament. Viewing the matter locally we find that the provisions of the Act of 1865 have been a dead letter. Sunday trading has not only been openly vitlated, but seemingly ra sveotable storekeepers sell...
SWIFT'S IRISHRY. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 June 1870
S\rIr'u's IRISIIItY.--If I wanted a still stronger case I would take his letiers or his conversation. The changeful playfulness in which he wIantlIers on from Iheme to theme -now illumin:atln'r by a spark, of wit, now illustrating by a story aptly invented for the occasion, but quot.:d as a were apropos, and all dalshed with a dreary despondency, a mnelanchoily that sat, Banquo like, at the feast, and routed all its festivity. Swift's bitterness-that tone of scorn and rage in which he denounced his enemies, and froma winch he did not always except his friends had another object. thanu mere disappoint ment. That terrible malady, now known as nisease of the metubranes of the brain, dated for -0 years before his death, not producing actual insanity, but occasional incoherency, together with i degree, of irritability and exciteoenV that mere temperament, uuin fluunced by disease, never produces. We ih reality, know more of Swift during the.par oxysms of his malady than of his intervals ...

Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 June 1870
The starting of the works on the North Eastern Railway is the signal for many who have been living in anticipation of such an event for a long time. Already a little township has .prung-up alongside the line in this neighbourhood, some pretentious'looking huts, the owners of which are, for the most part, aspirants for beer licences, having been erected along the western bank of the Dry Creek. We trust the time has gone by for such people to reap a bounteous harvest, and sincerely hope that the werking men of the colony have by this time learned a lesson %ihich will have the effect of making them limit the patronage given so profusely in former days to a class of characters who lay themselves out to make money by preying on the entrails of society. Despite the dulness of the times, and the scarcity of money, Kilmore does not seem behindhand in the erection of new buildings and renovating and improving old ones The handsome brick shop erected by Mr Wiesel, in Sydney street, is quite a...
THE LADIES' COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 30 June 1870
THE LADIES' COLUMN. ~---------- TaB LAnmrs.-A contemporary says " the ladies who so persistently bore us with their unfeminine crotchets about woman's sphere and female suffrage, and all the rest of it, are no doubt very nice sort of people when they can make up their minds to stop at home and mind their own business; but we do wish they would keep themsrlvs a to themselves, and refrain from pouring long diatribes into our ears abhrut imaginary evils, and wrongs that have no existence. It may be very amusing to set up as a female plat formist but there are other occupations at least as noble, and certainly a great deal more useful. By the way, we woe der how the husbands of these in dividuals like the new arrangement, by which they obtain a sort of second hand lustre reflected from the eccentricities of their wives. As to any tangible results to be expected from this petticoat cackling, we question if the fish will prove worth the net for catch ing it, to say nothing of the precious...

THE ONLY FEMALE MASON. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 7 July 1870
THE ONLY FEMALES MASON. The Hon Elizabeth St. Ledger was the only female who was ever initiated into the mystery of Freenmasonery. She had two degrees-the first and second-co'ferred on her. As it may be interesting to the genet ral reader, as to how Miss St Ledger obi tained this honor,.wepromise that the infor. mation comes from the best sources. Lord Doneraile, Miss St Ledger's father, a very zealous Mason, held a warrant, and occaison' ally opened lodge at Doneraile House, his sons and some intimate friends assisting; and it is said that never were Masonic duties more rigorously performed than by the brethren of No 150, the number of their warrant. It appears that previous to the initiation ofa geauman to the first degree of Mason ery, Mi St Ledger, who was a young girl, happe o be in an apartment adjoining the roo erally used as lodge room, but whether ng lady was there by design, or merely by , ccident, we cannot confidently state. The room at the time was under going some alte...

The Legislative Council Chamber on Tuesday evening wore a much more animated appearance than it generally does, there being a fair number of the general public in the galleries, anxious to hear the fate of the Bill to &bolish State Aid to religion, for the second reading of which a call of the House had been ordered. There were 25 members present when the cal was made, and satisn factory reasons were given for the non attendance of the few absentees; Mr A'Beckett, in the course of the speech which he made on proposing the second reading advocated the passing of the bill chiefly on the ground of expediency, and because the supporters of the state aid principle could not possibly expect better terms than were offered by it. 1ir O'Shannassy opposed the second reading, arguing that the bill was introduced contrary to the instructions given to the Governor in reference to bills which had to be reserved for the Royal assent There sho...
