SELECTED POETRY. TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 26 January 1867

SELECTED POETRY. TO SLEEP. First round my brow a poppy wreath I'll bind, Gather'd, while moisten'd with the falling dew, With ivy tendrils round their stems entwin'd— Then, to the god of sleep, my song pursue. Hail, balmy sleep ! thou offspring of the night !   Alone of thee the muse delights to sing ; Bend hitherwards thy gentle airy flight ! And o'er me drop thy dark extended wing. Thy sacred Influence to my soul impart, And on my couch, oh, "Partial Sleep !" descend;   'Tis thou alone can'st sooth my grief-worn heart; "Nature's best nurse," and Sorrow's gentlest friend. Spread wide thine arms, and fold me to thy breast; There I can taste the blessings of repose : Then, with my sorrows, shall I sink into rest, And calm oblivion mitigate my woes.   THE CHARACTER. An easy mien, engaging in address, Looks, which at once, each winning grace express. A life, where love and truth are ever join'd, A nature ever great, and ever kind ; A wisdom solid,...

THE DIAMOND RING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 February 1867

'['HE DIAMOND RING, EDWARD MANSFIELD was the son of. a wealthy Manchester merchant. Of a 'pre possessing manner and appearance, and cheerful disposition, he was a very general favourite, Ilis-age, at the time of our story, amight be about twenty or twenty-one. His father intended him to become a merchant, and, with this view, was training him up in his own counting-house. For a lon' while, younn' Mansfield was all that his fatter could[ wishi him, steady and attentive to business, and exhibiting a great deal of general talent. But a melancholy and most unexpected change gradually took place. Having formed an acquaintance with a set of loose, reckless, young follows, he contracted habits of intemperance and oxtravagance, spent his nights, and often his days, in the tavern, nnd, finally, entirely lost his father's confidence, and, of course, regard. As is not unusual in such cases, young' Mansfield made repented promises of amend mont, but as often broke them. The natural consequences...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 February 1867

MELTON. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) ONE would have thought that even though the Melton people pleaded guilty to the charge of " want of public spirit" alleged by me against them two or three weeks ago, that when anything turned up likely to put money in their pockets, they would take sonimc real interest- in the matter; yet, from what has occurred here during the last week, the assumption is hardly borne out by the facts. Though it is to be remembered that Melton once made an effort some four years ago, when it went up to the Marsh as one man, and upset the old Road Board arrangements there, and appears, not even at this date, to have recovered sufficiently to make another effort. I have been induced to make these remarks from the fact that a public meeting of the inhabitants was called for seven p.m. on Saturday last, the 26th instant, at the Royal Hotel, as the placards stated, to consider the best course to be taken in order to induce the Commissioner of Lauds to fix the drawing of...

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 February 1867

BALLAN, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ON Wednesday evening, Jan. 23rd, the rate. payers of Ballau, in public meeting assembled, pronounced unanuimously infavour of a water supply for this township, and expressed by resolution their entire approval of the action taken by the Town Council in the matter; and there is not the slightest doubt but that the Government will commence, if not complete the works this summer. This in formation ought to delight sweet "William Sugar," of Ballan, who appears to entertain very grave doubts about .1allan possessing men who can procure reservoirs for water supply, and achieve many other trifling matters.--" too numerous to mention," as the auctioneers say. There never was a more respectable public meeting held here, nor one more in earnest, and which has achieved a result more practical and useful; but I find Ballan's "old croaker" at his dismal work again, "screeching," as Artemus Ward would say, "like a boiled owl," or a barking, snarl ing cur, who...

On one occasion, when on ier road home, she was., aceompaniud by two young sparks, who thought. they'd have some fun out of the old lady, and this; they did by keeping up with her on the other side. of the wall, uttering as they went along oceasionally, unearthly sounds, indicative ofdemonia...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 February 1867

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1867. Fnoat the report of the proceedings in Parlia ment this week which will be found in another column, it will be seen that an important debate has taken place upon the Border Customs question : important for two if not more reasons--thatupon its result the existence of the present Ministry depended, and that the treaty upon which the discussion took place was one upon which many legislators had bestowed anxious thoughts, both at the recent Conference that: had immediately led to its, being framed,: and also for imany years past. The people of this colony are fully aware of the fact that any debate whichl threatens to lead to the replacing of the present Ministry by another formed from the present House of Assembly, is an important one, and it is there fore not surprising to find that, although the speeches delivered during this particular debate we are treating of were but poor one8 for thIe most part, yet that great eagerness should have been shown duri?g ...

NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 February 1867

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The extreme heat which prevailed during the latter end of last week was suddenly changed by a heavy rain, which commenced on Sunday last about noon, and continued at intervals during the night and the greater part of Monday. We are glad to learn that, although it caused some alarm to the farmers who had their crops exposed, no bad effects have been experienced from the rain; and there is no doubt it will have a most beneficial effect upon the supply of feed for cattle and sheep; and this opportune rain will at the same time be the means, in a great measure, of preventing bush fires from being so prevalent as they otherwise would have been. The crops are being rapidly threshed out, and the yields are proving in the district of the Marsh highly satis factory. An allusion was made last week to the crops of Mr. Ryan, who had not then commenced to thresh, and it was supposed the yield would be one hundred bushels of oats to the acre; the actual results, of course, have ...

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. T.UESDAY, JANUARY 20. Isc the Logislative Council-Tho Heon, Mr. Strachan tw ok his seat as member for the Western Province. The lion. Mr. Mlurphy moved for a return, showing details in reference to uncollected Customs duties. lie said that the country had been defrauded of .£02,000, owing to the Commissioner of Customs having remitted duties which should have boon collected under Act of Parliament. The Hon. Mr. Fawkner feared there was a hole in the ship of the constitution, which must soon swamp it. He hoped the House would see this £62,000 collected. The Hon. Mr. Fraser pointed out that the report of the Royal Commission upon these uncollected duties showed that the greater part of the Hon. Mr. Murphy's motion was replied to; for of the duties for which bonds were given, only £1700 remained to be collected; and as regards the amount of £012,000, he contended that, as the duties which it represented had never boon asked for, it was wrong to expect any one to...
