THE THURSDAY MORNING, SEPT. 28,1882 The third number of "Nellie Gray," by a local authoress, appears in our fourth page. SMr. Foilohonfold,. who has for some time carrioed on business as a draper in this township is about to extend his' con noxion to Bairnadalo, whore he intends opening a drapery store. We regret to learn that Mr. Mirams, M.LA., is confined to his bed through an attack of orysipolas. From our country files we observe that the storm, whose;soverity we experienced on Sunday the 19th inst., seems to have been general, tthroughout the colony; Accounts of its devastating effooects are roported fron all quarters. A moat destructive fire occurred at Sohnapper Point on Sunday. The shop of iMr. Phillip Worland was completely de stroyed, the premises and stock being worth upwards of £3,000. Strange to say Mr. Warland's shop was destroyed by firo some years ago when he was carrying on business in Sale. A case of supposed small-pox is reported at Hamilton. The patient, a man no...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 5 October 1882

MISCELLLANEOUS. In the report of the proceedings of the Br(itish 1Hollso of Collnons the folloswing appears :--Mr. Stevenson p1resen'tedl a petiion siglned by the Countess of Abordeen and'1 153,327 wives, mothers, and daughters in Eng land and Scotlnud against the sale of intosxicating liquors on Sunday. The petition, which formned a roll as largo as a barroll, bound up with bands of bldue ribbon, was carried up to the table by the hon. member and( Mr. Broad hurst, and deposited at the Speaker's feet, amidst laugShter and cheers. The "Ovens and Murray Advertiser" learns that Mr. Frederick Maccabe, the celebrated character actor, has just come in for an iunoxpected piece of luck. It seems that five years ago he gave L5000 for some property in Leeds, and at tho'time was called a fool who was tlhrowing away his money. Last week he received a cablegram from his lawyer, tellilng him tlhat he could sell for L50,000, and.asking him for instructions. Mr. Maccahe, who is now in Sydney, cable...

MELBOURNE. Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 5 October 1882

MELBOURNE. -4--- (FROM OUR OWN CORRESP'ONDENT.) -Wednesday. In tlh Legislative Assembly last night Mr. Mason drew attention to the uproarious proceedings of a band of people, headed by a man named Dowic, and calling themselven "The Salvation Army," who parade the streets of'the suburbs overy Saturday - evening, creating a great disturbance by their songs and recantations. The leader of this religious body of good people is in the habit of standing outside the various public houses in the suburbs and denouncing the proprietoros thereof as poisoners, murderers, and using other mild epithets con* corning them. If the fellow is not stopped oas Mr. Mason pointed out, he may be more summarily dealt with at the hands of some of those he so ardently maligns. The Premier in reply to Mr. Mason has promised to have Mr. Dowie properly dealt with. Your readers will be sorry to leprn that tlhe Hon. Thos. Bent, Commissioner of Railways is confsned to his bed through injuries hlie sustained by the ...

TOONGABBIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 5 October 1882

TOONGABBIE. (PROM I CORRESPOrNDOsT.) Mr. Harding was here last week and solectoed a site for the State School. How far his selection will be endorsed by the parento and guardians of children mn the district remains to be seeon; Mr. Hardling only appeared to take into consideration the cost to the Department of which he is an officer, whereas, the general opinion is that the allotment behind Jones's brick building is most suitable, on account of its being rising dry ground, and sufficiently removed from the business places, but the objection is that it would incur a cost to the crown of, porhoas, £100 to purchase this site. Ieally this is, in tlhe mattor of public building, "splittinghairs." The Club Hotel has changed hands. The trustoes of the cometory last week, accepted tendors for foncing, conditionally that the money could be raised. The Railway Department at last appear likely to use ironbark timber in the con struction of rolling stock. Why the framings for trucks were not lon...

SHOCKING OCCURRENCE AT HEYFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 5 October 1882

SHOOKING OCOURRENCE AT HEYFIELD. A moat shocking affair is reported from Heyfield. A woman named Summers, otherwise Hayes, who has been keeping a shanty on the railway line beyond Hoyfield, has been drink ing heavily for some days, and on Saturday night, whilst under the influence of drink, she seized a child which was lying on the floor of the shanty and rushed out with it. Search was made in all directions for the woman, but no trace of her has yet been discovered. The child was found on Monday morning lying in an ad joining paddock almost dead from ox posure. The poor little sufferer is in a terribly mutilated condition, the fieon dish woman having apparently beaten it with some weapon about the head, back, and face. Senior-constable Beck informs us that ho has found the piece of wood with which the wounds were evidently inflicted. It is a huge piece of timber, some four feet in length, which appears to have been blown from the branlch of one of'the adjoining trees. The jagged ed...

COMMENTS ON EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 5 October 1882

COMMENTS ON EVENTS. ---- The birds whose music fills the air, Do chirp and chatter heedlessly." -ANon; Mr. Government (as Artemus Ward says) is a very strong man, and yet the Government sometimes, by their too acute measures, find themselves out witted. For instance, a circular hasline been issued to tho masters of all vessels lying, at the railway pier, intimating that in future fifteen days only will be allowed'for taking cargo, and that any vessel remaining a' longcer period will be fined. at the rate of 3d. per ton for each day beyond the specified period. Doubtless our wortlhy Minister of Railways flattered himself much upon the additional revenue that would thus accrue to the department by his in ventive genius, but imagine his chagrin on now learning that several of the leading ship-owners intend to lighter their wool cargoes to their vessels in the Bay themselves, so that instead ofa mighty increment to the revenue of the. railway department, the Honorable Tom will be able t...
