No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 28 July 1866
INQUEST.--The District Coroner (Dr. Rae) held an inquest on the body of a Chinaman named Ah Hing, at the Royal Mail Hotel, Blackwood, on Monday the 16th inst. From the evidence it appeared that the deceased had come from Ballarat about a fortnight previous to his death. He was sick when he came to Blackwood, and, until his death on Friday, the 13th inst., lived with a countryman named Ah King. Ah Too, a storekeeper, sent for Dr. Plews, of Blue Mountain, on that day, but deceased died about ten minutes after his arrival. In accordance with a Chinese custom, the sick man had been removed from Ah King's house to a bark mia-mia, under which he died. Dr. Plews, under the circumstances, declined to give a cer- tificate of the cause of death. At the inquest, this gentleman made a post-imortem examination of the body, and gave it as his opinion that deceased died of congestion of the lungs and bowels, probably induced by exposure to cold. The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the m...

THE BACCHUS MARSH EXPRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 28 July 1866
THE BACCHUS MARSH EXPRESS. SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1860. REFonRM of the Upper ]louse, to be equal to the necessities of the case, must be of' a two fold clharacter, It must have respect to the powers of that House, as well as to its com position and the electoral basis on which it is constituted. We have soon in our own ex perience-and all history teaches the sameo lesson-that it is dangerous to arm any man or body of men with arbitrary power. That such power may be exercised with moderation and wisdom, and for the public good, is pos sible in a state of society possessing a very high standard of moral excellence, But it must be conceded that the people. of this colony, or any other people, have not yet attained that degree of moral perfection which would warrant the dispensing with the usual guarantees which have been found expedient for those possessing political power to exact from those to whom they delegate that power. Patriotism, no doubt, exists amongst us, and perhaps to a greate...

NEWS OF THE WEEK, The election of two members for the Bucchus Marsh and Maddingly Road Board, in room of Messrs. G. Grant and Syinimn'ton, who retire by rotation, takes place on TIhursday, the 9th August. Several gentlemen are spoken of as canditates for the vacancies, among whom are Messrs. Young and Saunders, whose well-known interest in the proncessive movements of the district, towether wit~ their business habits, can scarcely fiil to secure their return should they allow themselver to be put in nomination. A hioghway robbery under arms took place on the Northcote road, on Sunday morning, about one o'clock. A gardener named William Woodn was returning home in his cart fiom Melbourne, when he was stopped by three men, one of whom held the horse whilst the others got into tliy cart and demanded his money. One of them threatened to take his life if he did not give up what he had, at the same time presenting a pistol at him. Woods reluctantly gave up his purse, containing 35s., afte...

COAL AND IRON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
COAL AND IRON. AT present King Coal is monarch absolute, We cannot cook our food or warm our houses without it. Without it those wonderful manutfacturing establishments that are the chief causes of our commercial greatness in modern times could not possibly be carried on. In England and Wales there are seventeen coal-fields., By far thoe largest of them is that of South Wales, Out of the fuel which it contains might be shaped a mountain with a height three times that of Snowdon, and a base of a thousand square miles. Its greatest thickness is 10,000 feet, exceeding that of any other in the world, save the basin of Nova Scotia. Its present yield is 0,000,000 tons a year, and the same annual produce may be drawn from it for two millenniums to come. Next to it in size is the Derbyshire and Yorkshiro coal-flold, which yields more than 12,000,000 tons a year, and can go on doing so for seven centuries without being exhausted. In it there are 541 collieries, spread over a surface of 760 s...
A COMPLICATED CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
A CoazrLrcAiEn CAss.-" A report of the meeooting held in the estate of James D)oyle, of Ballan," says the Geelong Adrertiser, " is almost unique. The in solvent was a publican at 3allan; his property was mortgaged to the Provident Institute, who fore. closed, and a sister.inllaw repurchased at the sale. Insolvent still, however, remained in possession, and his sister-in-law on the day of her marriago signed a lease of the property for one year or three, at option. A 'singular fact was elicted, to the effect that all the rent charged was precisely the sum required to pay the interest on a second mortgage that had been made for .100. An execution had been put in the house, to recover the sun of £?0 on a judgment. MIr. Hedrick had purchased at the sale, and along with other things he had purchased two pigs. The insolvent stated that he had killed these pigs, as the neighbours had threatened to impound thom, they being at the same time the property of Mr. Hedrick. It is to be presumed t...
WHAT NEWSPAPERS DO. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
WhT '1 NE~ws5a]rnns Do.-The moderni English newspaper is an immense advance on the newspapers of all previous times. The number, the efficioncy, and the power of newspapers have elevated them into a position of vast importance in society; and they are thus, perhaps not improperly,, denominated "The Fourth Estate." All . classes in the State contribute to newspapers-statcsinen, divinees ,judges doctors, merchants, and work. imn-all become authors in their columns. The newspaper has a voice for everybody for the factory labourer, for the village delver, foir the Spitallields sillk-weaver, for the Liverpool sailor, for the Leeds clothier, for the Sheffield cutleri, for even the felon and the pauper. It is a w atchfill sentinel in fiont of minyors' courts; judges' benches, and boards of justices of the peace. It is an in. telligout pollic force, o\ver on the alert to rend the veil of conspiracy, to expose hidden dangers, to bring to light unreformned abuses. Jt3sides all this, it is a d...
THE MANELESS LION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
THE MANELESS LION. W\V are informed by Mr, Le Mfesurier that a very line specimen of the maneless lion was recently shot by Messrs. Lovell and Kelsey, of the lJubbulpore Railway, not far fromn the village of Pitna, distant only about eighty miles as the crow ilies in a south-westerly direction from this station. We believe that some few years ago more than one lion was known to frequent the jungles on the confines of the Allahabad and Banda districts, but their occurrence at the present day, within accessible distance of Allahabad, is sufficiently rare to be deserving of record. The lion whose death we now notice was a youug full grown male, with a very fair mane, measuring seven feet nine inches from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. His back was broken by the first shot, but it required three more shots and a shell to place him boro de coumlbat. For some time past the shikaries from the Chukkeah jungles, in the Benares district, who have taken service with the members of...

PUNISHMENT OF CONVICTS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
IUNISIlMENT OF CONVICTS I. AUSTRA Il:A, Tliil Australian prison and its stations have their defocts, of course, as have other prisons. 'The system is not perfect, and sulfbrs, as do all systems, by imperflect'tworking. It has amongst its oflicials childish old men, who are kept on because thero is no excuse for getting rid of them, other than there has been for years; and there are low blackguards amongst its subordinate oflicers who are kept on because they are smart men, and see that the pots and pans are kept up to the required brightness, )3at the management is, on the whole, judicious, and has good results. One experiment is being now carried out in Australia with regard to one particular class of prisoners-principally those recommitted for attempting to escape--which stands in most unhappy contrast with that part of the system which I have been describing. It is ceilled the " chain gang." It was determined to stop attempts to escape by terrific punish. mont-namely, heavy irons...

HOW THEY CURED A HIGHLAND MINISTER'S COLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
HOW THEY CURED A HIOHLAND MINISTEI'S COLD.-Dr. Macdonald, having caught cold on one of his journeys, and refusing rest in order to em. ploy some means of cure, he became at last seriously ill- The pores of his skin so closed that the usual means of producing perspiration entirely failed, and to procure this was deemed essential to his recovery. Hector Holm heard of his illness, and went to visit him. After conversation with him, and discovering what was required in order to his cure, he went about among the houses around the manse, and asked the inmates to assemble to hear a lecture from the minister. The people immediately gathered. All this was done unknown to Mr. Macdonald. When the kitchen of the manse was full, Hector went to the bed room, and told the minister that the people were ussembled and were expecting a lecture. "I ean not rise to speak to them," he said. " Baut will it not be hard," Hector asked, "to send them away without ' a word. "' " But how can I manage to speak ...

MR. MILL AND MR. LOWE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 4 August 1866
MRl. MILL AND MR. LOWE. (FPao THIE "MOaNING STARn," Arms 14.) ONE of the most artistic portions of Mr. Mill's fine speech was that in which he exposed the utter iu applicability and bottomlessnoss of Mr. Lowe's " practical" argument Ihat there is no substantial grievance which the present Parliament would not redress. It was very delightful to find this plausible plea inexorably demolished, not only by the application of common sense, but by a methoe dical logic which its author could most'keenly appreciate. In a higher and more fecund vein, Mr. Mill exhibited briefly but cogently the advan tage to Parliament and the nation alike of the presence for the first time in the House of Com. mons of duly empowered and competent represen tatires of real working-class fecling, and he speci fled a range of sulbects which we were only begIn ning to touch with the tips of our fingers, but which absolutely demanded legislative correction and settlement. Without reference to any other Bill, and o...
