AN ACTOR'S STRATAGEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
AN AcTon's S'rATAaEM.--An eminent tragedian now deceased, was once locked up in a room at the rear of the theatre to keep him in proper condition till he was called to go on the stage. One door of the apartment opened on the street, and while looking through the koy.hole he saw a man passing, and calling him up to the door, he pushed a crown through a crack, and instructed him to go to the public-house at the opposite corner and procure a pint of gin and a clay pipe, promising to reward him for his trouble., The man did as directed, and when hlie returned with the articles the actor told him to put the stem of the pipe through the key hole and pour the gin carefully into the bowl. These instruotions the accommodating individual also followed, and the result was, that when the manager called to notify to the prisoner that it was time to dress for his part, lie found him in a very happy frame of mind, but not at all in a condition calculated to add to his fame as an actor. " MY boy, w...
THE HUMOURS OF TYPOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
TuI I? uouIIa Of TY'?OGRAPIIY,.-During the Mexican war, one of the newspapers hurriodly announced an important item of news from Mexico, that General Pillow and thirty.seven of his man had boon lost in a bottle (battle). Some other paper informed the publio, not long ago, that a man, in a brown surtout, was yesterday brought before the court on a charge of stealing a small ox (box) from alady's worlk.bag. The stolen property was found in his waistcoat pocket. A rat (raft), says another paper, descending the river, came in contact with a steamboat, and so serious was the injury to the boat, that great exertions were necessary to save it. A contemporary once stated that the Russian General Bakmnoffkowsky was found dead with a long word (sword) in his mouth, It was, plorhaps, the snmoe paper that, in giving a description of a battle between the Poles and the Russians, said that the conflict was dreadful, and that the enemy was repulsed with great laughter (slaughter). Again, a gentlema...

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
BAL LAN. (rnozr ovR CORRESPONDENT.) Tuis Pic-mN , in connection with the Pres byterian Church, Ballan, took place at Mount Darriwell, near Ingliston, about a mile and a half from the residence of Peter Inglis, Esq., J.P. The children, with their parents, were requested to meet the com mittee and the members of the congregation of the church by half-past nine o'clock, but long before that hour, the usually quiet township of Ballan was quite alive with vehicles and horsemen wending their way to the scene of the pic-nio; whilst the joyous voices of the young people told their parents that to them at least "It would be the merriest, happiest day, Of all the glad now year." The first day of the New Year was ushered in with all the splendour of an Australian summer's day. Whilst " Old King Sol," who has looked down from his azure throne upon this world of ours for thousands of years past, still looked as bright and as young as over, for like many of the sons and daughters of earth, merril...
NEW YEAR'S DAY PIC-NIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
NIEW YEAR'S DAY PIC-NIC. AcconRDIN to annual custom, a pic-nio of Sabbath School scholars resident in the 1larsh and neighbourhood, was held on the first day of the year. It is noteworthy that New Year's Day is universally selected in this colony for the holding of gatherings of school children, just as Whit Monday is in the old country; and the reason for this colonial institution-for such it has become is the very obvious one that our climate does not, as a rule, allow of Whit Monday being a suitable day for the holding of out-door amusements. We say, " as a rule," because although that. day is a winter one with us, yet, after our experiencing such a very trying summer's day as the 1st of January, 1867, the very thought of a winter day is pleasing to the mind, and we really have not the conscience at present to say that Whit Monday must necessarily be a less pleasant time of the year for holding a pie nic than in the height of summer. However, it is utterly impossible for the Angl...

WHAT IS AN INCH OF RAIN? [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
WnHAT Is AN .INoH oi' IRAIN P-The last weekly return of the ]Registrar.General gives the following interesting information in respect to rainfall:- " Rain fell in London to the amountof 043 inches, which is equivalent to 43 tons of rain per acre. The rainfall during last week varied from 30 tons per acre in Edinburgh to 215 tons per acre in Glasgow. An English acre consists of 6,272,040 square inches; and an inch deep of rain on an acre yields 0,272,010 cubic inches of water, which at 277'274 cubic inches to the gallon makes 220,225 gallons; and, as a gallon of distilled water weighs bi01b., the rainfall on an acre is 226,2251b. avoir dupois; but 2,2401b, are a ton, and consequently an inch deep of rain weighs 100,093 tons, or nearly 101 tons per acre. For overy 100th of an inch a ton of water falls per acre." If any agriculturist were to try the experiment of distributing artifloially that which nature so bountifully sup. plies, he would soon feel inclined to "rest and be thankful....

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
NEWS OF THE WEEK. The old year was "rung out" on the Marsh very industriously by several parties, who, doubtless, eared little for theo repose of those who preferred seeking "nature's sweet restorer," to watching the advent of the first moments of the year 1807. A robbery has been committed at the Border Inn, Bacchus Marsh, of which the following are the particulars. On Friday morning, Senior Constable Kiernan was informed that a sum of £25 in notes had been abstracted from a cash box placed by Mr. Jones on his dressing table the previous night. The window had been left open, as the weather was hot, and this no doubt enabled the theft to be easily accomplished. A noise was heard by Mr. Jones about daylight, and he noticed that the cash box had been shifted from the position in which he had left it, but thinking that Mrs. Jones might have moved it, and seeing no person moving about in the yard, he took no further notice of the matter, and it was some hours after that he found that so...
AGRICULTURAL. CHEAP IRRIGATION FOR SMALL FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
AGRIOULTURAL, CHIIEAP IRRIGATION FOR SMALL FARMERS. (nouM 'I'E AU8TlnALASAN). We take it fbr granted that now-a.days there is no doubt about, not only the value, but the indisponsability of irrigation. Without grass there are no sheep, without sheep there is no wool, without grass again there are no cows, and without cows there is no milk, butter, chcgse, and all the rest of it. And what brings up the grass in a hot, dry climate like ours but water ? The only thing is to know how the water is to be got. About Melbourne there is no question on the matter. The facts are too strong. The availability of the T.Yan Yean, though two-thirds of its water are surreptitiously used, has made a regular belt of emerald green lawns, flower beds, and orchards around the city, where before every. thing was bare. It does not require this example to show that one acre of oven poor land irrigated will support as much stock as nine acres in a natural state. Nine to one is, we think, a fair average. Reck...

MPELTON. (1?reSo A cORESEPONDENT.) CInmlrsMAs and Now Year passed off very quietly. There has been loss stir this year than in any I have seeoon for some time.

THE Bacchus Marsh Express. SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 5 January 1867
8ATUIRDAY, JANUARY 6, 1867. IN these colonies, following hard upon the rejoloings of Christmas and the New Year, come the rejoicings peculiar to the harvest time. The Australian agriculturist is so situated that the times which are by the rest of the civilised world devoted to festivity, are by him necessarily set apart to the ex citing and unremitting labours of the harvest field. He has no time and little heart for rejoicing until he has seen his grain secured beyond the reach of harm. The harvest home rejoicings in this and the surrounding dis tricts are now, however, beginning in earnest. Most of the cereals, even to the wheat, are reaped, and on every side, at morning, noon, and night, the shrill whistle of the threshing machine is heard, Unfortunately the general joy of this season is very unexpectedly marred by the ravages of that scourge of the farmer-the rust. Even with this drawback (just sufficient to deepen the national gratitude), we have one of the most bountifid harve...
