MELBOURNE. March 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Benalla Ensign and Farmer's and Squatter's Journal — 25 March 1870
MELBOURNE. (roan on aws con CsroR esNEN.) March 23. A good deal of ill fooling has.been intro. diced into tiho asettlement of the disputed race undisguisedly that hlo will not run any more under the same management as the former races, as, owing to'the fact that several of that management are pecuniarily interested in Howitt's visit to this country, it is plain that evoey help will be given to their protege. Harris simply wants to win or lose onr his merits; and it certainly is .very unfair to re port about the city that Hewitt allowed his op ponent to win the two first races, and could have pulled off'tho whole of the events easily if he had been so ordered, but that he was under thei order of his employers. This is very tantloising to Harris, and also to the public generally, who begin to think that they have only been once more the victims? of.Cop pin's dodges. The Assembly had a pretty stormy meeting last night. A. good deal of ill feeling has been engendered by the appointment ...

To the Editor of the Benalla Ensign Sir,-''he i'oter day while convreeing 'with some of the f?tirers at the Major .Plaids l learnt that the school was 'closod and the toacher hadl 'gone! away, and on inquiring of some of the parents I found that the school itself was situated so much at one end of the district that it wi all but uieless to the greater part of the residents. I was informed by parents who were particularly anxiois'that their.children' should not miss the only opportunitywlhich presented itself of getting instruction that.theipoor children had to take a journey of three miles and back' daily to attend the school. I take itfor'.granted that there ale managers appointed at the Miljor with' whom the care and management of this school 'rests, and I would'suggest to them that it 'would be advisable in i~"thinly populated a- distriot?to engage a teacher who'aould teach' twioe a:week at. three differet'parts of the 'Msjor, it any. suitable...
