The Kerang Times AND SWAN HILL GAZETTE. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. KERANG, MARCH 22, 1878. CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 22 March 1878

Asn SwA:t HILL GAZETTE. PDLISIIED WEEKLY. KERANG, MARCH 22, 187 8. COSSTITUTIONAL REFORM. THAT a reform of the Constitution of Victoria is needed has been apparent to parties of all shades of political opinions for some time past. But as to the direction, and to what extent that reform is to take place, opinion is divided. There is scarcely a politician in the colony who holds, or has held in time past, a leading position but has found his best efforts rendered unavail ing by the unworkableness of the con stitution. One or two schemes have been propounded, and others have died in incubation. The most notable are the Norwegian scheme of Mr Francis', which was intended to reform the Upper Chamber of our Legislature, by bringing it more in accord with the wishes of the Lower Chamber; the other, which was to have seen the light of day had the verdict of the sath of last May been the reverse, and whose object was to bring the Lower Chamber in accordLwith the Upper by nullifying manhood s...

THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 22 March 1878

THE-?WAR. I DESPITE the peaceful aspects by the sighing of the peace proposals at Baden Baden the other day; another turn of the wheel and we are brought face to face with the prospect of a fierce and sanguinary war. It is evi dent Russia is not in favour of a last- I ing peace, such as may be agreed on by a Conference of the Powers at Ber lin. 'Hence his refusal to submit to the whole of the peace proposals. Russia is getting what he wants, and I that is, time to reinforce his army, call out fresh troops, and securely hold t what new country he has acquired in the present war. That such ap pears to be the case may be gathered from the movements of his forces. Late wire news inform, us that his troops are advancing towards Constan tinople; that Bulair. on the sea-coast, near Gallipolli, is being fortified; and that large numbers of troops are being massed at Adrianople. By the time the conference meets, with his troops properly placed, Russia will be in a position so snap his finger...

AGRICULTURAL. Some very interesting investigations were carried out a short time, ago in the Industrial and Technological M1useum la boratory, by Ir Frederick Dunn, under the supervision of AMr J. Cosmo ine ewberry. When the drought broke, a few weeks since,Mr Ellery, at the request of Mr New berry, caused saniples of the rain then fall ing so abundantly to be collected at the Observatory, anud preserved several sainples of the rainwater which fell aromid Mel bourne. These were subjected .to analysis to find] the quantity of amminonia. which they contained- as 'fertilizers, and it was" found. to be equal to about 101 Goz of . sulphate of amnionia per acre, and since the market price of sulphate of ammonia is L26'G per ton, it follows that the recent rainfall,,:had .a money value for the colony of 2s Gd per acre over the- whole area upon- which it descended.

THE OUTBREAK AT PENTRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 22 March 1878

THE OUTBREAK AT PENTRIDGE. ,,.Al.though 'eutridge is generally under stood, to. be .the temporary home of the mdst hardened ruffians in the colony, it is very seldom that the quietude of its dis cipline is disturbed as it was on Wednes day week by an outbreak of the young men confined in the Reformatory which is attached to the Penal establishment at that place. At one time it threatened to assume serious dimensions, and before the disturbance was quelled some of the.war ders attached to the Penal department who were called to assist in putting an end to the entite-received some very nasty wounds; but fortunately none of them were of a serious character. From what can be learned it appears that the disturbance arose out of a mere trifle, and it would not have' as sumed such a serious character had it not been for the inliscretion of one of the oifficials, and the delay that took place in acquainting Mr G. 0.
