COURTS OF PETTY SESSIONS. BACCHUS MARSH. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30. (Before Charles Shuter, Esq., P.M.) Thomas Manly, blacksmith v. David Toshack, farmer. Debt - £15 - work and material. De- fendant disputed payment, as Mr. Manly had offered to make him a waggon body for £12, but he now charged several items as extras which brought up the amount to £15. Thomas Manly contended that the extras were proper ones, he never agreed to make a new break, nor to put in two new transoms for £12 10s. Thomas Carlton said - Mr. Toshack agreed to pay £12 10s. for a waggon body, and nothing more specific was mentioned until afterwards; and when Mr. Toshack mentioned a break and two transoms, he told him that they would be extras. David Toshack said that Mr. Manly agreed to make the waggon complete, including hay frame, break, and transoms, for £12; and the only extra was one bolster which would have been about 5s. Order for £15; and 2s. 6d. costs.
SELECTED POETRY. ONLY A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 February 1867
SELECTED POETRY. ONLY A DAY. BY RICHARD HOWITT. [These verses, singular as it may seem, and quite a contradiction in terms, were written on &nbsp; Christmas-day, and at Midsummer, both seasons &nbsp; occurring at the same time. This is at once clear when it is said they were written in Australia. I may also state that the only similarity which I could discover to exist betwixt an English and an Australian Christmas was on a fine bland moon- light night, when the universally parched country, heat having done the work of frost, appeared in the intensely white moonlight like stained snow. How odd to the stranger appears the great contrast presented by the Australian Christmas ! No fog, sleet, or snow—no comfortable wrapping of the person in cloaks, fur-lined—no clogs, umbrellas, or greatcoats—but everywhere, for it is " warm as Christmas," are seen white dresses; and in the bright sunshine glitter silken parasols to the sun. Indeed, Father Christmas wreathes his brow wi...

REVIEW. GRIF: A Story of Colonial Life, by B. L. Farjeon. Melbourne: all Booksellers. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 February 1867
R VIE W. OUrF: A Story of Colonial Life, by B. L, Pajoon. Melbourned: all Booksellers. IT is very soldom that anything in the shape of a colonial novel issues firom the printing offices in Australia; so seldom, indeed, that when a bolonial novel. does appear, such a'pplearance is almost a guarantee of its being worth reading, otherwise no nuthor would be ndvised--supposing' lie sought advice, which unlhmed authors generally do--to venture the hazardous spdclnhttion of attempting to force a way among the crowd of' imported works of fiction which colonists everywhere appear to think it a picrt of their duty to the land of their birth to road. Mr, FPrjeon, howeyer, has run tho risk, and the merit of his book, in our opinion, proves the argument that it would never have boon published had it not boon thoroughly well worth reading. With th .sincere hope that "Grif" will find many ~naders, we make the fohllowing extract from th bouok: Tin Nw Rlusiu. :l?,usv in the mornin g' the plains wer...

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1867. ON Monday last, the members of the Road Board engaged in an animated discussion in reference to irrigation. We think with the Chairman that it is time something de finite was done by the Road Board towards deciding whether they will give the required guarantee or not; and we think that MIr. Young's motion, which was carried, and the public meeting which it is intended to call, will set at rest the question whether we shall have irrigation or not in this district; for we do not believe that the ratepayers of the Bacchus Marsh district will consent to any Board but their own giving the guarantee for paying the six per cent. interest on cost of construction; so that, if the information asked for firom the Government by MIr. YouNG's motion be not satisfactory, the public meeting of the ratepayers will, no doubt, decide that-it is as well to leave irri gation still in the dim fthure. It will be seen that some difference of opinion exists between members of the...
