THE CHINAMAN AND THE BULL. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 13 November 1863
THE CHINAMAN AND THE BULL.-AS a mob of cattle belonging to Mr. Rlussell were being driven in from Newstead, they 'were met by a Chinaman carrying two baskets of cabbages. A bull, attracted by the green-stuff, made a dash after John, who gave leg-bail as fast as he could go. - The bull had the best of the chase, and caught John gently behind, -ripping his unmentionables up, without injuring the flesh, and then seized one of the bas kets in its mouth, scattering the contents .around, and made a dash through the bush with the Chinaman in full cry after his : basket. After various freaks the bull finished by breaking his own neck without doing any more damage.-M- A. lMail, Nov, . 6.

ENGLISH AND FRENCH SEAMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 13 November 1863
ENGLISH AND FRENCH SEAMEN. Nine orten thousand French seamen having been constantly under my review for so long a period, it may be expected that I should say a few words respecting their condition.. They are wiry, active, and easily amenable both to instruction and discipline; but they are a less muscular, and certainly a smaller race than the sea men of the British islands, and are not so cleanly either in their persohs or in their dress.' I do not speak of their appearance at muster. or on Sundays or. holidays, but when in-their ordinary working dress, both on board and in their boats. On this par ticular head, I have been surprised that more pains has not been taken, with- a view to improvement; for the ships are beautifully clean in every part, and the boats are perfection. The costume of the French sailor is an exact copy of ours in every respect, but they cannot successfully imitate the style of the hut, the cut of the trousers, or the gait of the real seaman. They are no vol...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 13 November 1863
MISCEILLANEOUS. Why should Africa rightly be considered to rank first of the continents ?-Because it bears the palm. Which of the feathered tribes lifts the heaviest weight ?-The Crane. A Short Trip.--Slipping on a piece of orange peel in the street. Dobbs says he has one of the most obe dient boys in the world. He tells him to do as he pleases, and he does it without murmuring. All our laws would seem to be bankrupt laws; they are broken every day. The mariner's compass has done some of the most important needle work in the world. " I'll put that in my trunk," as the wild elephant observed to the-orange. Why does a flower resemble. a public lecturet ?-Because it depends on its (s) talk. Avail yours.elf of all your knowledge without making a display of it. The ma chinery works best that is hidden from view. The truly great are humble, as those ears of corn and boughs of trees that are best laden bend lowest. When our cup runs over, we let. others drink the drops that fall, but not a...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 13 November 1863
ALAs for human nature, nothing can make it infallible! Titles are only ornamental, after all. Many a man under the title of King, has brought disgrace, ruin, and shame upon whole races of the human family, by tricks that would disgrace a travelling tinker. And in some instances it has, ere now, required the keen penetration and the aunivide attention of i perfect philosopher, to discover the diflerence between a Lord Mayor and his fool. What wonder, then, that the Mayor of Heathcote should ex hibit the general signs of human weakness, aud so far forget himself as a member of the Road Board, as to give the slightest cause of offence to the driver of the mighty Engine, that may for aught he knows, crush him ere long a la Juggernaut. Dr. Robinson made a great mistake in asking the representatives of the press to withdraw; for Mr. Furze must naturally wish to know how it is that Mr. Wynn was not elected, after the M'Ivor News had pointed him .out as the best man. If the members of the B...
ATROCIOUS MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 13 November 1863
ATROCIOUS MURDER. (From the Ararat Advertiser.) Garr's Plains ivill for many a long year be notorious as the tragic scene of one of the most notorious murders that ever stained our colonial records of crime. The bodies of two young men, well known in this district, have been discovered tied to a tree, gagged, blindfolded, and toma hawked in a frightful manner, . Their names are William Selby, a young man of about twenty-five years of age, and John Barnett, a youth of not more than eighteen years of age. Selby has been travelling bor some considerable time past round the country parts as a licensed hawker, and on the 16th of October last he started -from Mr. Magnus' store, Stawell,; Pleasant Creek, in company with Barnett; taking a spring cart and dray, containing about £1000 worth of clothing, jewellery, &c., principally the property, it is said, of Mr. Magnus, and a portion belonging to Selby. The parties took the usual route, passing through Gleiiorchy, and were last seen ...

THE UPPER HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 13 November 1863
THE UPPER HOUSE. (From the Age.) Of ivbat utility is the Upper House ? Since the beginning of the New Constitu tion, what has it accomplished in the way of legislation entitling it to the gratitude or respect of the country? We are not about to question the policy of bicameral representation-the objection extends only to our own Upper Chamber. It is quite possible, even in a democratic country, to create a branch of the Ldgislature that shall contain as well as represent the wis dom, the experience, and even the virtues of the nation. We could not in this country as yet follow strictly the plan sketched out by Mr. Mill, but it might be aproached; and, as the field to be occupied by men of ability expands, so the Chamber of the Legislative Council might ultimately be occupied by persons worthy of the name of senators, and to whom the inte rests of the country might be safely con fided. Ad it is, the Upper House is dis creditable to the country. For the A ssembly, if need be, there is...

MINING INTELLIGENCE. Only four shafts are at present being ' ;.:.worked in High-street. In three instances, we believe, the parties are getting payable gold. The woking party, of the " Band of Shicers,'' have little hopes of their claim turning out. The "New Chum" Company are get. ting pretty fair prospects, anui from the apparent spirit with which they are shaping, we imagine they are on payable '-`gold.
