CHIP P S. -o I did not mean to blame my honest friend Salem. No, sirs, he has done his level best, my masters. And I doubt not but that he will go on.and prosper. May his shadow never geot less. And my remarks about the collector, too ? Have they given um brago? No, surely not. Thy skin is not so thin, dear boy. I meant it as a joke, no more ; rely upon it, friend. You have done your duty, and that, too, most honestly. Travel on in the same track, and if a joke is sent your way " smile," and take no notice, for Toby means no ill, depend upon it.

NEWS 3BY THE CALIFORINIAIN MAIL. (From the Argus.) LoNDoN, 28th March. The prospects of a congress meeting are very slight England unequivocally demands the whole terms of the treaty of San Stefano submitted to the congress, and this llgsoia is endeavoring to evade. The French Press praises England's attitude, and the loading German papers counsel ltussia to give way, as in the event of war England would be certain to obtain allice, whilst no power would join Russia against England. The liussian papers are very bitter against Eng. land. Telegrams from Constantinople state that the ltussians troops arc very anxious to return home without furtlher war. The Grand Dukte Nieholal arranged to em Ihark a prrtion of the army at Bajukdere, and tihe Russian troops approached that locality, wherenpon MIr Layard ilotheated thait the British fleet would enter tile Bosphorus it the Russians occupied llujukdoro.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 May 1878

MELBOURNE LETTER ----t- (PROxI OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The Francis banquet has been the chief event of the past week, and both as regards the number who attended it and the quality of the oratory, it was a decided success. The enthusiasm die. played could scarcely have been greater had the assemblage met to celebrate a victory, instead of to recompense, so far as possible, a leader for a defeat. If it showed nothing else, it showed that the constitutional party is neither disbanded nor coved, but that they have the means and determination for making many a stubborn fight yet. The writ for the election of a member for Warrnambool, consequent on the resignation of Sir James M'Culloch, has now been issued, and Mr Francis has already formally declared his candi dature. 'l'hbe Ministerial party have selected an opponent to him in the per son of Mr J. W. Craig, a resident of the district, who will consequently be able to bring an amount of local in fluenc? to bear on the election, and on ...

YEA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 May 1878

YEA. (PROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) The ratepayers will regret to hear that Mr Merry has been compelled through ill health to resign his seat as President of the Yea Shire Council. As a councillor his uniform avoidance of the squabbling and abusive tactics so often indulged in where sound sense is wanting gained the good opinion of the ratepayers and the respect of his brother councillors. During his term of office, chiefly through his own hard work and at no small amount of ex pense to himself, the district made rapid strides in coming to the front. At the last election for the Legislative Assembly. although a squatter, he happily joined the Liberal patty, and thereby materially aided in swelling Dir Hunt's very large majority, and assuredly the wisdom of his political views then has since been amply proved and liberally rewarded; not only have we got the promise of a railway, but all are agreed that the county of Anglesey was never fairly if at all represented until our indefatigable m...

Alexandra & Yea Standard PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY "EXCELSIOR." SATURDAY, 11TH MAY. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 11 May 1878

1':tq luandija & m ,talIdard PUBLIsuED EVERY BAT?BDAY "* EXCELSIOR." SATURDAY, 11TH MAY, ATTENTION has of late been frequently drawn in the Press to one of the draw. backs connected with the general spread of education and increase of knowledge, as embodied in the desire for " genteel" employment and the antipathy to enter manual pursuits. There is no doubt that thin tendency is very extensively manifested, and that to this cause is attributable the comparative scarcity of skilled artisans and the superabundance of clerks, shopmeu, and members of the learned professions. At present this tendency has been merely productive of a certain amount of inconvenience to society at large and a reduction in the remuneration paid to those who follow the occupations in question, caused by increasing competition, but it is not diflicult to foresee that should the same conditions continue absolute misery will be caused through the disproportionate number of persons who are trained for cler...
