Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 24 April 1874

Cricket. By LONOsLIP. Some timo since when the subject of the local cricket ground was first mooted, AMr. John Donaldson, the well known architect and surveyor of this borough, in the handsomest manner possible volunteered his professional services in order to make a plan and prepare the specification, setting forth the probable cost of the improvements he would sug gest. Since then the weather has not been very favorable, and Mr Donaldson could not make a survey of the land earlier than about a fortnight ago. He has, however, now sent in the pIan and specification, the latter of which sets forth that in order to fence and drain the ground so as to completely protect it from the storm waters, .will require the sum of £185. After that work is com plated, there will be ploughing, seed, &e., for the turf and other incdental expenses, which will bring the amount up to £200; for which sum we can have a good turf next year.

North Melbourne Advertiser, AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, APRIL 24TH, 1874. THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 24 April 1874

AND CARLTON ADVOCATE. FRIDAY, APRIL 24Tn, 1874. -- THE ELECTIONS... The result of the elections in North Melbourne and East Bourke Boroughs must have proved very` gratifying to the friends of progress. In North Mel bourne, as we predicted, the consti tuency elected two represenitatives Messrs. Curtain and Munro-holding the most opposite opinions on subjects of social reform;- but the fact of these gentlemen differing upon abstract ques tions need not prevent them from heartily co-operating together .for the advancement of the district. AMr. Burtt occupied an honorable position on the poll, and must not feel aggrieved at his defeat. He has won many a hard fought battle in the cause of democracy, and like every honest man, the know ledge that he has performed his public duty in a straightforward manner, must be the best solace for any feeling of ir ritation which may remain on his mind. We believe we have done what was right in opposing his re-election at the present juncture of affai...

The match consisted of threeo outof five games. Each of the competitors may be taken as good representativos of thie game in this country and consequently there was a keen interest taken in the contest. From the first it was evident that M'Namara showed signs of fatigu0, owing, it was stated, to an accident he met with last weeook, which much militated against the success of the game. MIossrs. Langham and M1'Greil won three successive games, beating Leahy and S'Namara to 12 aeos in the first. 10 in the second, and 4 in the third "gamo. Langbam'm play was much admired.

THE HOTHAM TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 24 April 1874

THE HOTHAM TOWN HALL. The Hotham Councillors should not lose sight of the fact that the money for the erection of a new Town Hall is still lying idle in the bank. Some steps ought to be taken to bring under the notice of M\r. Francis the necessity of obtaining Government assistance in erecting a now building. No doubt the recently elected representatives would heartily second a renewed application for a grant in aid. We believe there is a Town Hall Committee in existence, and the matter, .should be discussed by that body without delay. It seems somewhat absurd. first to borrow a sum of money.for a, special object, pay in terest on same, and then- quietly allow it to remain unproductive for a couple of years. . .

The action of the sergeant, of which complaint was made, occurred onthe 14th Novemberlast. The evidence was to the effect that about 18 months before that date, a summons was taken out against a son of the plaintiff, for stealing fruit from a garden, but he did not appear to answer it. A warrant was then obtained for his apprehension, but it could not be served on him at the time through his being out of the way. It was accordingly laid aside until November last, when the defendant went to the plain tiffs house about half-past 10 o'clock at night, knocked the inmates up, and searched the house for young I...
