COMMENTS ON EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 19 October 1882

COMMIENTS ON EVENTS. " The birds whoso music fills the air, Do chirp and chatter heedlessly." -ANcs. There is nothing for which. I have a greater reverence than literature. Even as a boy if I saw a rmait who had even the smallest pretensions to journalistic fame, I used reverently to doll my cap and remain in worshipful pose untillihe had passed. And these ilnate senti ments of respect still smoulder in my bosom, but when I see a journal of much popularity, and consequently con siderable fame (to wit the "Australian Sketchlier") producing what purports to be an entirely original story under the heading -of "IKit, a memory," which is in reality being at present published in the "London Graphic," and is only sent out here in a stereo. typed form, it makes me feel a little choleric against the journal in question. There is protection for productions of 'every other description here, but brain productions, to be any good must be imported. The debates over many of tile measures which our...

She stated that she was married a short time ago, and had been very happy with her husband until her mother, who was a widow, came to live with them. Her husband's maimer then changed to wards her; he became cool and offhand with her, while his manner to her mother was very warm and affectionate. She remonstrated with him, but he' only laughed at her and told her that she was dreaming. She did not like to say anything to her mother, but at last made up her mnind that she would speak to her upon the subject, but before she could get an opportunity of doing so, her husband and her mother eloped together. , The applicant was further understood to say that hcr mother had money, whilst she had none; that, she believed, was the bait which had allured her husband, The magistrate told her that he was sorry he could not ...

THE THURSDAY MORNING, OCT. 28,, 1882 Tes munificent public spirit which, by his donation of £5,000, has been dis played by the Ilon. Francis Ormond, uand his promise of future support, will, it is to be hoped, act as an incentiove to others of our wealthy colonists to emulate the example now set before them. Mr. Ormond's proposal is to found a Workinsg lfen's Colloege, whose utility wnuldl begin wshen the State schools left otrins the course of education, end as it is estimated that there are 20,000 worlking men in Melbourne, it would only take a subscription of 3s 4d eachl to render available tlhe balance of the money required in terms of Mr. Orondl's olfer. Tlhere can be little diubt tlhat thle present generous pro posal of the founder of a working man's college will Iso liberally responded to, and more than this, that it will act ass stimulus to otlher wealthy colonists to go and do likewise in other localities which are centres of large population.

The following good story is told of the late Reverend Dr. Bacchaus, upon whose demise at Sandhurst a few weeks back I had occasion in a recent issue to refer. lie was the earliest minister in the goldfields, and, as may hbe expected, " full euany a time and oft" lhe had to descend from the higher regions of his ecclesiastio functions to moro ordinary dealings with common mortals. On one occasion the Dean was preaching in an old slab erection which served tihe sacred pu pose of a chapel, when a numbler of brawlers emerged from one of the shanties which surrounded the church on all. sides, and commenced making a disturbanco in front of the place of worship. In vain did the Dean attempt to pursue his sacred task, his voice was scarcely heard by les congrega p s n.consequence of the din of the obrawlers; so, dismounting from the slab-bench which served the purpose of a pulpit, tmheDean se...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not hold ourselives responsible for Sthe opinions of our Oorrespondents.]' THE MEWBURN PARK LAND SALE AND THE "GIPPSLAND MEROURY." TO TIIHE EDMTO OFP TaE SAPPEA BPOEOTATO. Siu,-I dare say you have noticed in the issue of 21st inst. of your Salo contemporary a notice of the recent sale of land on Mewhurn Park. The article is a triflo spiteful in tone, and is worth a moment's study. First, the former proprietor, with all his wealth of Christian names flourished before the reader, is taken severely to task for not better knowing the enhanced value of his possessions since he first held them; and next, his style of business is pretty freely commented on as a "paying through the nose" one. Thte writer of the notice is rather puzzled himself at the high prices obtained for the land, and arrives at the wiselcoriclusion that " people know their own biusiness best," and that at any rate the result proves the confidence the inhalbitants have in their district. Very wise...

The country generally will certainly be glad when they see their long promised lines commenced. There was a long discussion in the Legislative Assembly yesterday, regard ing the order that should be observed with respect to the introduction of measures. Mr. Kerferd pointed out that it was no uncommon practice for members to introduce private measures or matters of little public voncern and obtain their passage through the House, while matters of weighty import were slighted, or totally neglected. Ho in stanced the Loan Bill, which had been quite overlooked amidst the long and desultory debates which mhad engaged the attension of the House.
