Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 28 July 1870
We notice that the Chairman of the Broadford Board, at the request of several ratepayers, has convened a meeting of the inhabitants of that district for Tuesday'next at the Sunday Oreek Hotel, to consider the advisability of taking steps to. petition the Minister of Justice to establish a Court of Petty Sessions at Broadford, and also to dis. cuss the advisabilty of asking for a telegraph office at that place. On to-morrow (Friday) an election to fill an extraordinary vacancy in the Seymcur Road Board, caused by the retirement of Mr Clement Perron, will be held. Mr Perron is wooing the sweet voices of the electors once more, and is opposed by Mr Thomas Murray The contest is calculated to create considerable interest and excitement, as both gentlemen are favorably known in the locality. We believe the next series of popular readings in Kilmore will be held on Friday evening, the 5th proximo. The weather has been extremely cold for the past few days. On Sunday night a very. severe fro...

THE ST. ARNAUD MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 28 July 1870
THE ST. ARNAUD MURDER. (FROM THE ARARAT ADVERTISER.) &nbsp; The Circuit Court was opened at Ararat on Tuesday by his Honor Judge Williams, and intense excitement prevailed, owing to the trial of Andrew Vair for the wilful mur- der of Amos Cheale, at St Arnaud, in Jan- uary, 1869. Vair pleaded "Not Guilty," and was defended by Mr.McDermott. Mr Adamson, the Crown prosecutor, opened the case, and called Mrs Hardingham, who heard the fatal shot fired, and saw a man run off into the scrub. She described this man's size and clothing, which tallied with Vair's description. Mr Smith, Mr Johnstone, and Mr Cadzow gave evidence of hearing the shot, and finding Cheale lying wounded and dying. Cheale said he had been shot by Vair, and on his being removed to Cadzow's house, his dying deposition was taken by Dr Brisbane. Cheale distinctly said that Vair had shot him, and he died in three quarters of an hour. The evidence of a man named Bedwell proved that Vair had left a gun with him at a...

DIAMOND CREEK QUARTZ REEFS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 August 1870
DIAMONvD C1REEK QUARTZ REFSF E . (From the Daily Telegraph.) Some seventeen miles from Melbourne, on 1 the Caledonian Diggings R'oad, there is a quartz mine in full operation. Some five years ago Messrs Phillips and Lewis found a reef on the Diamond Creek, and worked it with success foi. about three. years." The money obtained was, however, spent in costly and ineffective work, and for,the last two years operations have been at a stan'l still. The Diamond reef stretches out near the township of Nillumbik North to a large bend of the Diamond Creek, being, three quarters of a mile in length. Numerous shaftslnud spoill;e,.ps attest the rich character of the reef, and about two years ago a quanu tity of land was purchased by Messrs 'Pat terson, Christian, and Day, on which they commenced mining operations. They ereeted a 12-horse power engine, driving ten head of stamipers, 5ewt. each, and commenced work. ing what they called the Union reef, in a stgep bijll forming the boundary of the ...

THE FIJIAN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 August 1870
THE. FIJIAIN QUESTION. The Melbourne E~vening Herald states: "Mr Brewer- and- Mrs :Fitzjohn,. we suppose, are authorities on Fijian matters, at least they represent themselves as . such, and as these two work together in pushing forward theasettllment of Victorians in Fiji, we take it that they hold the same opinion on the results of white men settling in these islands. What their opinion is, may. be learnt from ona expressiou drpped by Mr Brewer at a recent: meeting of thlie Fiji `Planting and Trading Compgu ny.,at Ballarat. According to this. gtntleman; the i native will not fight when he can obtain breadfruit, bananas and yams; but as the settlement of: the whites in the isldrds.' ould, destroy the means by which these products are now obtained, there is every probabliity that the time will come when the natives will figtt with the settles,. But Mr Brewer has his panacea for this evil. Before the period for fighting comes the whites will have 'civilised the natives off the face o...

RAVAGES OF THE CATERPILLAR AROUND CAMPERDOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 August 1870
RAVAGIE OF THEE OATERPILLAR AIOUND CAMPERDOWI. It is really painful to witness the dire and whole. saFe ravages committed by the- caterpillar in ~sny portions of the district, and although the term plague would at the present time be oonsidered more omin ous and alarming than the ocrcurastances of the case would warrant; we cannot but think that in the event of these pests continuing to destroy the grass to tt a extent which during the past two months they have dine, our pae:ure lends will become more barren wastes, and romething worre even than pleur.r-pntu. monia will acorue, nt only to graziers, but to the col tny at large. Making peraoadl tours, as we ha.er done recently, throrieh the proverbially rich pastures of the hon Neil Black to the westward, and the Meesars Mrnifold to the eastward, we could not fail to notice that tire ravegee~of the oaterpiler had im. parted to a me of the richest portions of the land the appearances which usually remain as indications of recent fie:o....

INTERCOLONIAL INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION. (Sydney Morning Herald, July 29). [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 August 1870
INTERCOLONTAT1. INDUS ]RIAL EXHIBITION.. (Sydney Morning Herald, July 29).. The weather will disjoint the best planned enterprises, turn adva-ntages in.to disadvan , tages, victories into defeats, and generally disorder human .affirs The French say that Napoleon could not be expected to win the battle of Waterloo when Providence, in the form of a drenching shower of rain which fell the night before, spoiled. th.e ground, for cavalry man,"uvres. If the Etmperor could take refuge under that circumstance, the coutractor of the exhibi!ion. need not hesit tate to plead a similar interposition to pre vent his coming up. to the time in conformity with his eng:,gement with the corporation. The earlier and the later rains have rendered it necessary for him to sue for time. The proposition could not be entertained by the corporation until submitted to, the council of the Agricultural- Society, to wbom they stood pledged to hand over the building on a certain date And the Council, although the...
BEECHWORTH. Tuesday, Aug. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 4 August 1870
BEECH WORTH. (BY ELEOTRIC TELEGRAPH) From the Argus, Tuesday. Aug. 2. The Criminal Sessions commenced and ended toiday. Thomas. Holmes, for horse stealing, was sentenced to two years' imi prisonment ; Thomas Lee, for horselstealing, to two years ; Ah Suey, for burglary, to six months; and Winm. Anderson, for f'rgery, to one year. Henry Power pleaded guilty to three charges brought against him, and was seur tenced to five years' hard labor on each, the sentences to be cumulative. Power con ducted himself with his usual braggadocio in court, and told the judge to draw it mild, and he would be lenient with him should they meet each other in the bush when he was liberated. By the escort, Power and Wee Cow (com. mitted at the last Circuit Court for an ath tempt to murder) left town in charge of Superintendent Hare during the day. Power wished the crowd good bye, and said he hoped to see them again.
