Esq., was held on Wedriesday evening last at the Mechanids' Institute, for the purpose of. taking into consideration the most suitable manner of returning the handsome compliment paid by Mr. Stewart to his numerous guests on that occasion Whether suct return should take the shape of a dinner or a ball was discussed at the meeting in question, and we are glad to find that, by the gallantry of the gentlemen present, a ball was pronounced the most suitable and agreeable form of return, and was decided upon by a largeimajority .

Original Correspondence. A LOCAL INSURANCE COMPANY. To the Editor of the WILLIAMSTOWN CHRONICLE.] [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 3 September 1859

A LOCAL LNSlURALNCE (COMIPANY. To the Editor of the WicuAz*srow" CHRONICLE. SIm,-It occurred to me a short time ago that it would be expedient and desirable to establish a local Fire and Life In surance Company in Williamstown, the mem bers of which should consist principally of the owners of property and residents in the dis trict. Whether it would be well to attempt life insurances at once may be questioned, but as to the advantages which may be gained by establishing a Fire Insurance Company, there can be no doubt. The people of Williams town have been and are still paying away a large sum of money every year to the Mel bourne insurance offices, the only return for which they get is the guarantee to be paid certain amountsin case their properties should be.burnt up. The question therefore is, why cannot the people of Williamstown give that guarantee to each :other, and save the heavy premiums which they are now under I see no difficulties in the way but which may be easily remove...

THE EARTHQUAKE ON WEDNESDAY (AUGUST 24). [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 3 September 1859

THE EARTHQUAKE ON WEDNESDAY (August 24.).—We see that a correspondent of our contem porary has written to call attention to the fact of the shock of an earthquake having been felt here 3on Wednesday morning, a little before 5 a.m. In the midst of a general election an earthquake is a minor matter, and so it was that we omitted to take notice of it ; but the shock was distinctly felt in our office. The walls of the building were shaken and two doors which were standing open were slammed to with violence, and at the same time the sensation was as if a wave had passed under the floor. There was, however, no second shock. The direction of the earthquake was in the line of the magnetic meridian. According to our estimation the duration of the shock was about four seconds.— Bendigo Mercury, August 29,—We have received     further corroboration of the occurrence of the phe nomenon on Wednesday morning from Mr. Allan   Reeve, of Mundy-street, who infor...
