CRICKET. EUROA V. VIOLET TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 February 1885
CRsIC KIET. EUROA V. VIOLET TOWN. The cricket match which came off on Saturday last, between tile above teams resulted in a decided Victory for Violet Town. The main feature in the play was the bowling and batting of Davis and MI'Shane of intercoloni:l fame, the latter especially compiled runs very speedily though in somewhat a lucky faslhion. The batting of Euroa with the, exception of Weir was poor throughout. Pleasents at tempted to bat with a boil on his arm, "' but boiled over.". The fielding of Euroa was much behind th;it of Violet Town, several chances havingbeenmissed, which distinctly showed carelessness and the want' of proper attention to practice. Davis' bowling average of nine wickets for eighteen runs stands out as the best per formance on the Euroa ground this season, and we have much plleasure in compli nieuting him on it. The following are the scores :- . VIOLET TOWx. Johnson, c Birkett, b M'Nay 2 P. G. I'Shane, b I'Nay ... 132 Neil (capt.), c Neale, b M'Nay 5 Davis...
OUR DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 February 1885
OUR DEFENCE. &nbsp; The following correspondence re the forming a Cavalry Corps here has been handed to us 'for publication by Major Slee. It would appear from the tenor of the Colonel Commandant that our "war &nbsp; oflice:' has adopted the red tapeism of the English Government in refusing VIctorian and Canadian assistance for the Soudan; The excuse given that Euroa is too far from Sandhurst and Melbourne to permit the only available drill instructor to attend is absurd, or a mere subdefuge. For have we not here in our. midst Major Slee who has been in the Victorian Cavalry for 30 years, and surely he would be quite competent to drill our material into shape. Then 'again we have Mr C. O'Connell O'Meagher an old Eaniskillener in the Imperial service, who would be thoroughly &nbsp; competent to instruct our recruits. We think that Major Slee ought to call a public meeting to take the views of our volunteers on the subject, and have them properly represented by...
STRATHBOGIE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 February 1885
STRATHBOGIE. [PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The rain which fell lately has effectually stopped the bush fires, but not before considerable damage had been done. The heaviest sufferers are Mrs Faris about 1000 acres of grass ; Mr. Bamford, 320 acres, Mr. Watson, 300 acres, and Mr. Wardle, 200, besides fencing. Great praise is due to Mr. Wakenshaw's gang of men who were indefatigable in their efforts to sub due the fire, working both day and night. The thrashing in Strathbogie has been rather hurried this year. Some of the farmers being put to a great deal of incon venience: No fewer than nine machines in this district, which are too many for so small an area of land under cultivation. The farmers are however satisfied with the yield, although not so with the prices. But then you know farmers must have something to grumble about. The resident of Gooram wish to call the attention of the council to a culvert about a mile from Mr. Brock's or better known as Wheeler's Gap culvert, which is...

ARCADIA. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 March 1885
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). Since the recent rains the farmers in this district are turning their attention to wards the coming year, and the plough is now in active service, with those who iavefinished carting their grain, although a great quantity is yet to be carted owing to it being held back; probably. with the hope of a rise in the market, which as yet seems as far off as ever. - The Seven Creeks, has at last.sent a stream of fresh water down 'to our dry locality, prior to the change in the weather stockowners about .here who had not. a frontage-to water were beginning to feel serious, as the supply of water in all the" accessible , waterholes 'and*- dams was nearly eihausted. ' Some time ago a peti tion . wasforwarded to thei Euroal Shi'e Council, respecting the practicability of locking the Seven Creeks, and turning the water along an old water, course, where there are some large vaterholes, which if ofice filled'would be valuable.

-OOWEMLO IY JOTTINGSI SBY "INCOG." Being attracted by the subject of tho Rev. F. L. Wilson's address on Sunday evening at Violet Town, I jgurneyed about ten miles to hear what lthe rev: gentleman would say about the hero of Khartoum, and Ineed scarcely say that I was well repaid for my trouble.. I found that I was not theosilyeountryiuihabitant there, for the number of. vehicles and horses drawn up outside the church was a proof that many persons had conm.con siderable distances, drawn thither, I have no doubt in some instances; by the same power that attracted me. The neat little church was packed to the full, so full, in fact, that several young men had to be accommodated with seats amongst the choir. The rev. gentleman took for his text "Know ye not that .there is a great man fallen 1" and in his introductory re marks, stated that he.felt a powerful im pulse to do homage to the memory of such a person as General Gordon, by directing the thoughts of hids hearers to the true soldie...
