SELECTED POETRY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; PRINTERS' BLUNDERS. Or Reflections upon receiving a copy of my first Poem published in a newspaper. Ah ! here it is ! I'm famous now,— An author and a poet ! It really is in print ! Ye Gods! How proud I'll be to show it ! And gentle Anna ! What a thrill Will animate her breast, To read those ardent lines and know To whom they are addressed ! Why, bless my soul ! here's something strange, What can the paper mean By talking of the "graceful brooks" That GANDER "o'er the green ?" And here's a T, instead of R, Which makes it "TIPPLING rill;" &nbsp; " We'll seek the SHAD," instead of "shade," And H—L, instead of "hill," "'They look so "—what ? I recollect, 'Twas "sweet," and then 'twas "kind ;" And now to think the stupid fool For " bland" has printed BLIND &nbsp; Was over such provoking work ? 'Tis curious, by-the-bye— How anything is rendered blind By giving it an (I) eye ! " Hast thou no tears," the T's left...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 12 January 1867
MELTON. (mRows otv owvr COi=srPO:noEssr.) It will be remermnercd by your readers, that on the occasion of the Ministerial banquet at Bacchus Marshs ome three or four months ago, Mr. Bindon, the Minister of Justice, was waylaid on his return to Melbourne by a deputation of residents in this district-to wit, B. C. Porter, Esq., J.P., and others-when the state of the premises in which the Court of Petty Sessions is held was brought under his notice ; and he even inspected the place, and expressed great surprise at what he saw- namely, a building put up in the good old digging I days of 1853, originally de'signed and used as the ' Melton Hotel, in almost the last stage of dilapi. da'ion, and threatening to come down about the eans of their worships on the first windy day. He was of opinion that the place was quite unfit for the purpose; the accommodation totally inade quate to the busineuss, and devoid of provision for the safe keeping of documents of any kind. He said, something must b...
To the Editor of the Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 12 January 1867
To the Edilor of the fGuardian. Sl--In your issue of the 22nd instant, a report from your Blackwood correspondent of a meeting held at the Victoria Hotel, Red Hill, although generally accurate, is one-sided-facts being sup preased. Ferguson is reported to have commenced by giving an imaginary calculation, &c. Now, MIr. Editor, the first words Ferguson said were " Mr. Chairman, I have to call your attention to the fact that this meeting has not been duly advertised; the plaards did not arrive ou Black wood until two nights ago. No bills were posted, one bill only having been left at the business places on Golden P'oint-the stores of Messrs. Camerorn rand Ilur~en. Sebastopol never got any bihla. Not one of the irnhb;tiunta there knew of this meeting, con eqIuently this meeting cannot rupr?:enit the opinion:, of the inhabitants of Mount btla,:kwood." It is but justico to Mr. Hanson to state that he did not try to impress the miners with the id'le that, if prcldaimed a municipal...

Ballarat Star, Jan. 7. Thr TaTlbo Leader remarks:-" As a fitting pen. lent to the paragraph which appeared in our last sane, and to show how attempts are made to impose upon charitable institutions, it may be stated that, some time since, a man died in one of the wards of the Amherst Diistrict Hospital, having a neckcloth loosely about his neck at the time, and that ou the wardsman subseq...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 12 January 1867
IT will be seen by our report of the pro ceedings of the Bacchus Marsh Road Board on Saturday last, that a large amount one-half-of the rates for the present year remain uncollected to date. We must un hesitatingly say that this state of matters is very discreditable to the ratepayers-or, rather, non-ratepayers-for it is culpable stupidity on their part to be so remiss in paying what is, perhaps, their best laid-out money of the year. It is very evident to them that payment of rates cannot be ulti mately avoided; then why allow the Board to sue for the rates, and obtain costs, when by liquidating the only direct taxation which they as colonists are called upon to bear, this annoyance can be avoided. Moreover, rate payers are surely aware that, for every £1 they pay, the Government adds an endow mert of £2; but this endowment is only paid upon rates collected up to a certain date in the year; consequently, by a ratepayer neglecting his duty so grossly as to compel the Board to srue h...
A VILLAGE SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 12 January 1867
A 'VILLAGE SKETCH. DY IrEV, D, P. ALFORD. I HAD been for two months in solo charge of a straggling country parish in North Devon. By perseverance and ingenuity, by searching and asking, I had found out most of its farms and cottages as they lay sheltered in cozy nooks, or hidden tamid surrounding orchards. I began to recognise my people, and mutual confidence was fast springing up between us, On the evening of May ý7th, 186--, Joseph Carter was announced, He was shown into the study, and, after some modest hesitation, in a roundabout way, let me know that he wished his banns called on the morrow. Now it so happened that this young follow had already attracted my attention. Hie was striking in appearance; his figure was tall, muscular, and well-proportioned i whilst his faeo, not especially intellectual, was attractive fiom its fiankness, its look of sturdy common sense, and still more from a shade of sadness which one could see underlying these on close inspection. The Carter family...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 12 January 1867
NEW8 OF THE WEEE. The arrival of the English mail steamer Bomba, with the hon. G. F. Verdon, C.B., Minister of Finance on board, is a very gratifying fact to th? colony at large, and the supporters of the Ministry in particular. We give a full report elsewhere of the incidents connected with thesuccessful mission of Ir. Verdon to England. His arrival will check the sneers of the Opposition writers who hsae circulated the rumour that the MPCulloch Ministry feared to meet Parliament without him, and woPld prorogue its assembly indefinitely in consequg.e The Argus spoke very contemptuously of the embassy of Mr. Verdon when he started, and prophesied its ignominious failure. Now that events have proved that journal to be wrong, i illogically claims the honour conferred upon Mk. Verdon as made in compliment to the colory, and yet says that it did not comport withthe dignity of the Imperial Government to resent the delinquencies of several (Mr. Verdon's colleague) upon one (Mr. Verdon him...
