Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] THE LATE FATAL ACCIDENT. (To the Editor of the Standard.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 6 April 1878

[ We do not hold ourselves responsible for the oJlntons expressed by our correspondents.) TIIE LATE FATAL ACCIDENT. (7o the Editor of the Standard.) Szet,-In reply to a letter which apleared in your lost issue, relative to tio late lament. able death at the Yea State school playground, a certain individual launches out a tissue of falsehoods in his well-known unscrupulous way against two members of the Board of Advice and DMr Inspector Maine, who, by the way, is deserving of all praise for not allowing a dtrty, wet, flat playground and a damp building.with a large cellar in it, to be foisted upon the people oi Yea as school premises, even though the heald-tericher had recom mended thlem. Mr Maine, whose mind is said to have been influenced, is no novice in these kind of things, and is, [ believe, incorruptible and not to be "got it." Accidents will happen upon ail playgrounds, even among adults, much less whein lonry7 logs are set roll ing among o lot of children. It is always easie...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 6 April 1878

MELBOURNE LET ER. (PRllOM OUR OWN COlRRESPONDENT.) So filr Ia tio pubiic so cioco C nod thI , political crisis may he said to bh settled, as recorded in my last, but to many persons, notably a majority of the Civil eorvants dismissed on the 8th of January last, matters are by no moans yet in a satisfactory position. Of course those unfortunate individuals will not regard the crisis as over until they are rein stated, or their claims for compensation duly met ; but so far there is still much uncertainty as to what the Government intend doing in connection with the matter. Notwithstanding the termination of the immediate questions in dispute between theo two Ilouses, the Legisla tive Council have determined to proceed with their address to the Hlome Go vernment, impugning the impartiality of the Governor, and censuring him for his conduct under various phases of the dispute. During the debate on the subject, Sir Charles Sladon explicitly stated, as I informed you some months since vtw...

RAILWAY LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 6 April 1878

RAILWAY LEAGUE. On Friday, the 29th ult., a meeting of the executive committee of the Alexandra Rail way League was called by circular, and the following gentlemen attended :-Mesers Hall, Bainbridgo, Wheeler, Coster, Lamont, Lade, Harker, Cook, IIames, and 31'Coll, Mr Bainbrldgo was voted to the chair, and said the meeting had been called for the purpose of making arrangements, so as to select gentlomen to renresent our ilaims to a rail. way to the iMinister upon his visit to Alex andra. No doubt both lines would find advo cates, therefore all should be heard, and we must then be contented with that chosen, and there must be no quarrelling with each other over the matter. The secretary (,lr Coster) said that many members had left the district, and some others have been removed by death ; it was therefore now necessary to appoint others in their stead-the names were published in our last issue-and that all members should be summoned by circular to attend a meeting on the 5th April, f...

CRICKETER'S PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 6 April 1878

~URICKETER'S PERFORMANCOE. * The members of the Alexandra Cricket Club gave an entertainment on Friday, the 29th ult., at tile Atheonoum, and although 1 t?hero was a very fair attendance, still it was I far from as good as the excellence of the bill of fare deserved. Etiquoette demands that the ladies should be first mentioned, and we must certainly give the palm to Miss J. C. Nempster, for the able and efllicient manner in which that lady performed the pieces upon the piano alleted to her during the evening. in the solo, "Irish Diamonds," the lady gave .evidence of her ability, and that, too, of no mean order, as a pianiste, and upon the termi nation of the piece was loudly applauded, and bad to submit to an unanimous encore. Also the duet from "Der Freisehultz," in company with Mr W. G. Moon, was received with rapture, and again an encore hald to be sub. anitted to ; and we feel sure that whenever hereafter this lady's name may appear in the bills, it will prove the passport to su...

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 April 1878

MELBOURNE LETTER. (FRO? OUR OWVN CORRESPONDENT.) The glimpse afforded into the relations of Sir George Bowen and Sir W. W. F. Mitchell by the voluminous correspondence which has recently passed between them, and occupied about five columrns of t'te Argus, has not alto gether redounded to their credit, and I do not think that it has served to raise either one or the other in the estimationl of the public. Even partisans of the Ministry, or the Gover nor (which is much the eamle thiing), admit thlle undignifled figure cut by his Excellency in this correspondence, and the worst of it is that the whole tissue of recrimination and mutual abuse is to be sent home for the perusal of the Secretary of State, whlom It cannot fail to disgust as much as it does people here. Parliament was only prorogued on Tuesday last until 21st May, and although the term will donbtless be extended somewhat beyond that, the vacation is not likely to be a lengthy one, as the financial year terminates on 30th Ju...
