AGRICULTURAL. OUR POWERS OF MEAT MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 December 1866
AGRICULTURAL. OUR POWERS OF MEAT MAKING. BY ALDERMAN MEO1II, " WE have been cutting during the last week part of a crop of six acres of Italian rye-grass, :a yard long, and fully ten to twelve tons per aero (the soil varying in many places, and being naturally very poor.) Taking the crop as ten tons only, it would, when made into hay, average nearly three tons per acre over the whole field. The grass is passed through the chaff-cutter, and given to our farm-horses and cattle. This grass was sown down in the spring of 1805 on a crop of barley. During the winter it has been occasionally irrigated by hose and jet with the sewage from our great tank, composed of our house sewage and the drainage and washings of bullock manure from under the sparred floors. Some small portion that could not be reached by our jet was guanood in February, but it is inferior to the sowaged portion. Walking thrugh it, it stands up nearly to one's waist. To-day we are washing out our bullock pudding, and agai...

BLACKWOOD. 27th December, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 December 1866
BLACKWOOD. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) 27th December, 1866. THE public meeting held on Thursday last was divided as to a separation fronm the Ballan shire, There was not so large an attendance as was anticipated. The matter was warmly discussed on both sides and resulted in in a bare majority in (line missing) steadily and persistently opposed; in which case, the chances of a severance being effected will be considerably diminished. The municipal system is one which has worked well in the colony, as elsewhere; and wherever the elements exist, and are ripe for embodiment, it should be carried into effect. Whether we, as a community, are so constituted as beneficially to realise the principle which has been so long in operation, and which has given strength and stability to almost every country of any import- ance, ancient or modern; is not for me to say. There are many things to be taken into consider- ation before a reliable conclusion can be arrived at. Population may be looked u...

SELECTED POETRY. THE OLD YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 29 December 1866
SELECTED POETRY. THE OLD YEAR. &nbsp; Thou art passing—passing old year, In the shadowy mist afar, With thy last faint flash of revelry, &nbsp; Like, the light of a falling star ! In joy—like the idle gleaming When the sleeper laughs in mirth ; In woo—like a sick man's dreaming, So hast thou passed on earth. Ten thousand hopes lie trampled Beneath thy voiceless tread, And hearts that made one melody Are gathered with the dead ! What leavest thou ? a sadness Upon life's weary way ; Sighs, for the songs of gladness, That hailed thy rising day. What leavest thou ? dim shadows Within the soul to dwell, And a mournful tone in memory, Like the troubled waters' swell. And passing thus, thou old year, Thy tread o'er hearts we trace, How have thy journeyings been told By field and mountain place ? Has bloomed beneath thy hand, And flowrets sprang to thy caress As to a wizard's wand. The harvest, priceless treasures Of golden fruit did yield, And the burdened garner measures T...
EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF HIDDEN TREASURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
EXTRAORDINARY STO'RY OF HIDDEN TREASURE, A CORRESPONDENT of the Netr York HeraTd writes : "Among the spots I have visited is a small island in Mahone Bay, on the south coast of Nova Scotia, known as Oak Island, where, for over a century, has been centered quite an interest. I give you the story as 'twas told to me. " Many years ago, when this province was a wild blooming forest in summer and a bleak snow-capped wilderness in winter, with here and there a small clearing, from which arose the smoke of some hardy settler's hut, an old man resided in the then British colony of New England, whose life had been wrapped in mystery. He had been a sailor in his younger days, and people said he had been a soldier, too, for upon his brown face there still remained traces of the cutlass. Often had the curious endeavoured to sound him upon his early career, but it was a fruitless task, The old man was as mute as the rock regarding his history. At last, when people began to give up all hope of ev...
