SELECTED POETRY. CONTENTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 12 January 1867

SELECTED POETRY. CONTENTMENT. No glory I covet, no riches I want, Ambition is nothing to me; The one thing I beg of kind Heaven to grant, Is a mind independent and free. With passions unruffled, untainted with pride, By reason my life let me square ; The wants of my nature are cheaply supplied, And the rest are but folly and care. The blessings which Providence freely has lent, I'll justly and gratefully prize; Whilst sweet meditation, and cheerful content, Shall make me both healthful and wise. In the pleasures the great man's possessions display, Unenvy'd I'll challenge my part; For ev'ry fair object my eyes can survey, Contributes to gladden my heart. How vainly, through infinite trouble and strife, The many their labours employ ! Since all that is truly delightful in life, Is what all, if they please, may enjoy,

FAMINE-STRICKEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

FAM IN IE-STRI CKEN. BY AN OLD INDIAN. (ADRIDOED FROI THE "ARoOSY") THE awful sufferings which the famine, now raging in India, is inflicting on a great part of its population, recalls to one's memory Boocaccio's brief yet terribly comprehensive description of the plague in Florence. The great pestilence of the fourteenth century spread "like fire when it comes in contact wvith large masses of combustibles," till its victims were daily numbered by thousands. In the vain hope of escaping from it, various plans were adopted. But there was no haven of safety. The plague seized on the temperate man diverting himself with his music, on the man inhalin, his odorous nosegay, on the coward in his flioht, and on the reveller in the midst of his %rutal revelry. They were buried, if noble and wealthy, with some show of ceremony, but if of the middle and lower rank, with scarce any. These either breathed their last in the stree:s, or in their own houses, "where the stench that came from them fi...

A TOO LOYAL POLICEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

A Too LOYAL Po IoEMrAN.-- His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh passed the railway station here, on his way south from Kelso, by the evening express train, on Saturday. His royal highness is the first scion of royal blood who has passed through the town since the late King of the Belgians had the freedom of the burgh conferred upon him. As his arrival was not expocted, there was no demonstration at the railway station, save by a few hangers on, who greeted the prince with a hearty cheer. Railway trains bring strange company together, and the same which convoyed the son of Queen Victoria was occupied by a criminal bound for Durham gaol, in charge of a most loyal policeman, who, hearing that a distin guished personage occupied the saloon carriage, could not resist the opportunity of having a peop at his royal highness. His loyalty, however, did not blind his professional zeal, and, to mako sure of his charge, he took him out of the carriage and up to the royal carriago windows with...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 1867. THE second session of the fifth Parliament of Victoria was opened on Thursday with even more than the usual form and ceremony, and its subsequent proceedings were of a tolerably lively nature, recalling vividly to mind the struggles of the past Sessions. A few dis contented and disappointed Ministerialists somewhat opposed the usual course of voting a reply to the Governor's address, their object being to coerce the Government into making some promise in regard to payment of mem bers. However, as Mr. M'CULLOCH promptly told them that no amendment upon the Address would be tolerated by the Govern ment, no doubt the incipient malcontents will become all the humbler for the failure of their first attempt to oust the present Minis try. In the Council, too, Mr. FELLowS has resumed his tantalising opposition; but this, no doubt, is done to show that he still retains his position as chief mischief-maker, much as the ceremony of reading a bill to preserve the pri...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

MELTON. (FROMr OUR CORRESPONDENT.) I BELIEVE I showed last week (to my own satisfaction at least), that Melton had a grievance in connection with the Court-house, and I now propose to follow suit, and shall endeavour to make it apparent that our postal arrangements are not all that can he wished for, or even achieved. The value of speedy and safe conveyance of letters, is a matter now so well understood, that I need not go into that subject, but shall take it for granted that it is looked upon as essential in any postal service. On enquiry at the post ofaice here, I find that letters for the Marsh, if posted before the Melbourne mail is made up-viz., 1.30 p.m.a-are sent to Melbourne that afternoon, to return through Melton at nine n.m. the following day, and reach their destination about ten a,m. I am further informed that the public suffers no incon venience from this arrangrement, as there is no postal communication hence to the Marsh except by the coach at nine a.m. daily. Very g...

MECIANICS' INSTITUTE. Tuei annual meeting of the mombers of the Me. chauics' Institute, Bacchus Marsh, was held on Monday evening last, at the Institute, Mr. Watts, President, occupying the chair. Thore was a very good attendance. Mr. Forsyth, Ilon. Secretary, read the following report - " In accordance with the rules of the Institute, your Committee have much pleasure in laying before you an account of their stewardship for the past year, and they are happy to state that during that period the progress of the Institute has been most successful in every respect, as by reference to the Treasurer's balauce.sheet it will be seen that we have paid away the sum of £14?8 14s. 10d,, and still have a small balance in bank of 15s,.

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

BALLAN. (FROPn OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) T'?E Hon. George Verdon, C.B., has been to the the old country, and what is better, he has returned safely; and, what is better still, the Arnus cannot laugh! But, the best of all is--his mission has been crowned with honour and complete success ! "The powers of Downing-street" did not " make a fool of him." But the Earl of Carnarvon, and my Lord Churchill, and Sir John Pakington, with Sir Daniel Cooper, took himn by the hand, as the representative of a young and flourishing empire, and bade him not to think for a moment that old Albion had forgotten, or would forget, her fair daughter of the Southern Cross. And now that our ambassador has been successful in obtaining plenty of money for the irrigation works of the country, what is Ballan going to do ? Is she going as usual to come in with a noise and precipitation " a day after the fair;" or will she, like other townships, " take time by the forelock," and insist upon her portion of the Govern...

THE HON. MR. VERDON IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

THE HON. MR. VERDON IN ENGLAND. 'L'Ti success of Mr. Verdon in England has been so great that all classes--even the editor of The Times-have profusely complimented him and the colony. The great " thunderer" no longer abuses the colonists, but speaks of them as " numerous, wealthy, enterprising and loyal," and acknowledges that "Downing-street has sometimes done its worst to provoke people accustomed to ideas of self-government." The Daily News appropriately says-"If half of that which was written in English newspapers in the spring of the present year had been true, Mr. Verdon ought to have been received, or rather avoided, here as a political leper. Instead of that he is heartily welcomed by the Government, and the city opens its money bags to him." On the occasion of the banquet given in his honour Mr. Verdon was highly ex tolled. We give an epitome of some of the speeches. Sir J. Pakington said-I cannot forget, gentle. men, that we are assembled together to-day to do honour to my...

EXTRAORDINARY MEMBER OF THE BRITISH HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 19 January 1867

EX'lRAOIDMINARY MDS;lBaR OP THin BlRIIsrw hIouse oF CoMnMONS.--It is scarcely credible that the following account of a " memberless member" for the county of Wexford, in Ireland, can be true, but that it is there is not the least doubt, for we obtain the subjoined particulars from a leoading English journal. The gentleman's name is Arthur M'Murrough Kavannah, and he has neither loegs or arms. He was born in this un. finished fashion. In place of legs he has but about six inches of minuoular thigh stumnps, one being about six inches shorter than its follow; while his arms are ldwarfed to perhaps four inches of the upper portion of those members, unfurnished with any terminations approaching in the remotest manner to hands. Ie is an excellent caligraphist, a dashing huntsman, an artistic draughtsman, an unerring shot, and the most expert of yachtors; ai combination of accomplislhmonts, under the cirounm. stances of his corporeal imperfections, that is certainly astonishing.
