The South Bourke Standard. FRIDAY, JANUARY 3rd, 1862. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 3 January 1862

.be ,ýCUt ??' 'ttt Lt ltc anbflb FRIDAY, JANUARY 3rd, 1802. 'tix annual election of Municipal Councillors for Kew, which will take place on Friday next, affords us an ppportunity for making a few remarks on 'the past municipal year. We arc sorry we cannot congratulate the Councillors on the progress they have made ---many things have been done which ought not to have been don9, and imany more things have been left undone which ought to have been done. But still, in our opinion, the j Councillors have done tlheir best; and, not. withltauding the difliculties nn4or which the Municipality was.formed, and which have in no wise diminuishid since that time, a fair start has bieen made, some works have been completed, and others of a permanent nature projected. The greatest dificulty the Council have had to contend against is a want of funds ; and this we niust'attributo in a great mean surOe tQ .4 p.rtain'lack of energy on their part in.not persistently urging their claims with the lovorn...

An old lady, sleeping during divine servico in a church in Liverpool, let fall her Bible, with clasps to it; and the noise partly waking her, she exclaimed aloud--"What I you have broke another jug, you slut, have you?"

STUDLEY PARK. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 3 January 1862

BST1DL?Y PARK. This favourite retreat was visited on Wed nesday by something like 8,000 persons-a circumstance which miit have been highly gratifying to the Studley Park' Bridge Com p ,annd to the lessee of the Johnston-street Tollgate. The' chief cause of this great gathering was the" Deutsches pic-nic." Ger mans, as well as Scotchmen and Frenchmen, hold the 1set of:January in high, esteem, and for several years past many of the German residents' in. this colony have' been iii the habit of celebrating the occasion by a pic-iiie in Studley Park.. But while the gatherings on former 'New Yeir's Days have been of a somewhat fugitive character, that of Wednes day was marked ?y a' perfect organization. We have no doubt that all German residents in and about Melbourne were present on the occasion, while others came from Geelong and other distant parts of the colony. The locale of the fte was that portion of tho park which was overlooked by the Yarra Bond Asy lum, and here; from about ten ...

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 3 January 1862

NOTES AND NEWS. I Mr. Candler, the district coroner, held two inquests': at, Nunawading on Monday last. The first was on William Henry Donaldson, a child aged three years, who was found' drowned in a waterhole. The second was on a man named Benjamin Edwards, aged 81, who met his death in the following manner: He was breaking in a young horse, and had the rope fastened round the animal's neck, with a turn over'its nose, and he was taking thehoraiinto iifaddock. While putting up the sliii rails as'he had a sore hand, he coiled the rope rouind his leg. Just then some dogs rushed at the horse, who started off at full speed round the paddock, dragging the un fortunate man after him over logs and stumps. At length the body appeared to be stopped by a log, when the rope broke. The man not returning at his usual time, search was made, and his body was found in a shockingly mu tilated condition, Death appears to have been caused by fracture of the skull. In both cases the jury returned appro...

THE MUNICIPAL RATE. To the Editor of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 10 January 1862

THE M:UNIQIPA Ii 1ATR :' ; r To the.Editor of the Standard,. Smr,--I am stirpriscd at the decision lately arrived at by the municipal 'councillors Liln respect to the rate of taxes for the ensuiting year for the Hawthorn Municipality.' Sir,. if I am right in my figures and calculations, I think that you will agree with me that • they have passed a resolution detrimental to the interests or .us all. In passing a six penny rate, no doubt they had economy in' view; but sometimes economy will veorge, on meanness, or even worse, But to the point. A sixponny rate will bring in about £682, which, with the Government Grant of 80s. in the £, will give us a total of £1,580. On the other hand, a ninepenny rate will give us. £948, which, with the grant of 80s.," will: amount to £2,870, to be expended in useful works in the district. By passing theoninie. penny rate £7900 more would have been qz-, pended than by that of 6d. I hold entirely with Councillori M'Dougall's arguments in favour. of the...

THE KEW MUNICIPAL ELECTION. To the Editor of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 10 January 1862

THE KIEW MUNICIPAL ELECTION. 2b the Editor of the Standard. St?;-I see by a ilicard just issued by our towvn elerkthat the 12th January falls on a Sunday, and consequently that the nomina tion of candidates for municipal houours will be hold on Saturday morning, instead of to morrow, as advertised. According to that notice, Friday is the 11th and Saturday the 12th January-at least so says our Chairman, and he does not contradict it to.day. As the Yankee says, ara't there something else in it besides that ? for I see, on referring to the annual election of last year, that the councillors were elected on the 12th January, huid by the Act they are to hold otlice for twelve months. .Consequently, if three new councillors were elected on Friday, we should hive ten instead of seven councillors. Look. ing att the Municipal Act, the 10th clause says that the Chairman of the, Council is to giver at least twenty-one days' notice in two 'couseutivo lnumbers of the Gouven,nuent Ga. ratin, &...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 10 January 1862

AMERICA. News Ito 4th November has'come to hand from America, via California. It is stated that 50,000 Confederato troops have crossed the Potomac, and taken possession of Vir: ginian soil. Thus, for nearly a week, two large armies have been within five miles of each other, and in the vicinity of Leesburg, on the banks of the Potomac.. It thus seems that the Federal forces have that river in their rear,, and the enemy in front.' From this it is judged that a great battle is im pendiig, and cainot long be delayed. It is stated that Gbneral Price and M'Oulloch have offected a junction of their armies, which now number 05,000 soldiers. A fleet of fifty vessels of war has sailed on a secret expedition. On the moriing of the 80th October it was spoken, in lat. 85dog. 80min., lon. 75deg. On the morning of 4th Novem. bar General Scott, from old age and infirmity, retired from the command of the American army.
