At this moment his bottle of 'apple.jack' was brought to his lips by some invisible agency, and Mr Merrill, taking ' a horn,' started towards to the meadow, where he had been engaged haytmaking, and in the short space of twelve minutes accomplished the building of nearly fifty haycoclrs,...

AN ANCIENT OPIUM EATER. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 July 1870

AN ANCIENT OPIUM EATEIR. The Standard's New York correspondent writes-" Very few men celebrate their birthday in its one hundred and fourth anni versary. But a breakfast party was given in this city on the 9th inst. to a man who was born in London on the 9th day of March 1766. When we think of what this man may have seen, of the comparatively remote period of political and literary history with which he forms a connecting link, we are lost in astonishmen. All, or nearly all, that Lord Mlacauly said of the wonderful lifetime of the poet Rogers, who was born only two years and eight months before our centenarian, and who has been dead more than fourteen years, might be. said of him. As a child he may have been patted on the head by Oliver Goldsmith,, arl may have seen D:vid Garrick act. He may, have followed the drums of the regiments, as they marched through Lon don streets, that were sent to reinforce General Gage before Bunker ill. Many a time he must have passed Samuel Johnson in ...

PERA hMBULATOR. - 4----- I At now looked for as regularly as your weekly issue, and sad and bitter was the dis appointment of many at my non.appearance last week. Perhaps you may think I am. colonially speaking, " blowing," with a viei of inducing you to give me a remuneration for my services which would for ever place me beyond the reach of poverty and want Whaitevor I may do towards sounding the praises of our representative in Parliament by speaking highly of his powers of oratory, or extolling his many virtues, I could not descend to the ignominious pcsition of doing anything which would lead you to the belief that my scribbling is worth anything. Put really I am liked by the people in general because, of course, my writings are always in praise of those who come within my reach-irony and sarcasm are unknown to me This all will undoubtedly admit; in deed, I fear that I go too fir in this line and that before long I may be termed aº fulsoue flatterer.

A VILLAGE DESTROYED BY FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 July 1870

A VILJAGE DESTROYED BY FI1RD. The village cf Broadclyst, four miles from Exeter, has been almost destroyed by a fire which broke out on the 27th April, and dex t atroyed no less than fiftyinine houses. Only eighteen houses rermain in the village, and I most of the inhabitants are burnt out, and will have to find shelter as best they can. No provisions were to be obtained in the 1 place. The property destroyed belonged to f Sir Thomas Acland, whose son, Mr Acland, I M P., with other gentlemen, was on the ground, and used every effort to supply food and shelter to, the sufferers. It is supposed that the conflagration was caused by sparks 1 from the chimney of an inn which was on 1 fire. Such a scene of destruction as the village of Broadclyst now presents can be s'arcely imagined, and no description can ,convey any aiieqnite idea of the damage the Fre has done. . By this calamity nearly 250 people are rendered houseless. The total destruction of clothes, furniture, and the Sstock ofsa...

This was a charge laid by Constable Nelson again!t Thomas C ghill, for using insulting wo:ds in a public plaoe, From evidence it appeared that on the 1??h instant the defendant was ringing a bill; annouaciog a sale, during the sitting of, and opposite, the police court, and the constable being sent to prevent people making a noise in the porch of the courthouse, noticed defendant occupied in ringing the bell and called upon him to desist.

SPIRITS! SPIRITS! [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 21 July 1870

SPIRITS! SPIRITS! -4------ ear Mr Editor-Who would have thought that any spirits, except those largely composed of alcohol, would ever have visited KFlmore ? But, perhaps I may be only showing my ignorance of their formation when I say that a' :ohol does not enter into the composition of those spirits that com municate with "mediums," and have the privilege of entering ladies' chambers at all hours, and knocking at their heads and feet. Whether alcohol is part of their composition or not, their very name-spirits-should make it dangerous for them to flit about much through the halls or corridors of a publichouse, Let one of them but chance to enter the open lips of a thirsty bar. frequenter, and all the influence of his brother or nistea spirits would not be able to extricate him from his perilous position, if the toper once finds that he has spirit in his mouth. For this f iendly advice, which I expect the spirits will read, as I do not see why they should not read as well as write,...
