Friday, 19th September, 18GG. n^Di^D^REDGEsT A. public meeting, consisting of about 150 persons, facetiously termed " a meeting' of the Colonists of Victoria," was held in tlie hall of the Meclianics' Institution, Melbourne, on the 11th inst., for the purpose of taking- su"h steps as mig'ht beconsider\x=req-\ ed advisable to secure the timely expenditure of the large amount which may be made available for the construction of the main line of roads throughout the Colony before the season has too far advanced thus to avoid the error of the past year, when a vast sum was almost uselessly expended after the autumn and winter rains had set in. The chair was occupied by the Mayor of Melbourne, and Mr. Hodgson, M.L.C., moved the following' resolution, although he admitted the proceeding's unconstitutional :— " That experience having shown the summer to be the only period of the year when large contracts for the construction and repair of the roads and bridges of the Colony can be carried o...

EXECUTION OF PALMER. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 19 September 1856

/ ■'EXECUTION OP PALMER. This 'notorious criminal, who was lately convicted of poisoning Mr. Cook,,and who is jalleged to have deliberately murdered three or four others, was hanged. at Stafford jail, on the morning of Saturday, the T4th of June last. A letter bearing the Liverpool post mark, had been received by Dr. Wright\x=req-\ son, of; Birmingham, previous to the execution of Palmer. This letter has been published, and purports to have been writ\x=req-\ tea' by .a' female- whom Cook seduced. This female alleges that she was the cause of!Cook's death by means of; a .poisoned dagger, with whicli she , wounded him in revenge for her seduction and desertion. We believe the letter contains internal evidence that the whole storv is a fabrication. Considerable, exertion' was .made to obtain a reprieve or commutation of the sentence, but tliey were unavailing-; and when the culprit found there was no hope of life, he became obdurate and incommuni\x=req-\ cative,.-and even desired the d...

LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 19 September 1856

LITERATURE. The September, number.of the Journal of Australasia has come to band. It contains a series of papers suited to the various tastes of general renders. The first article is entitled " The Fiction Fields of Australia," and has evidently been written by an ardent admirer of works of imagination and art. The author points out an abundant and diversified stock of materials for works of fiction, which are profusely scattered over the brond domain of Victoria, ready for the creative power of genius to mould into form and symmetry; but lie despairs of such work being performed here for some years to come. However, as the writer hi mself, in • the paper before us, gives abundant evidence of his love for the sublime and beautiful in nature, perhaps the,initia\x=req-\ tion could not be committed to better hands. . • - " Notes for a New Science," is from the pen of " a desultory thinker," and suggests that the motives by which men are actuated in their movements should be the basis o...

THE GIPPS LAND GUARDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 26 September 1856

THE GIPPS LAND GUARDIAN. Nearly twelve months . have ; passed away since the first number of the Gipps Land Guardian was issued. During time period we have experienced our share or the vicissitudes of life, in common with the rest of our fellow colonists. The publication of even our small sheet, in the midst of a population, numbering at that time little more than two thousand souls, and scattered over a vast extent of territory, was a hazardous experiment, in a pecuniary point of view ; but, as we said in our prospectus we did not expect to reap any'immediate profit from the enterprise, we.liave not,,in that respect, at least, been disappointed. Indeed, the amount of support we have receiveil is rather encouraging than otherwise, affording us, as it does, some hope that the capital embarked in the undertaking has not been expended altogether in vain, and that our labor and anxiety in behalf of the. land of our adoption, and the menial and material advancement of its inhabitants, ha...
