SELECT POETRY. THE EASTER FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 19 April 1878

SELECT.POETRY.. THE EASTER FAIR. The other night, as down the townB, By chane I took my way, Who should I meet but my friend Brown, Who this to me did say Oh, have you heard the news, old boy, About the sights so rare, I hope that we shall all enjoy This coming Easter Fair. The Governor will come, you know; God bless Sir George, I say ; Confound them ' cads,' both high and low, That wish him harm today; For he at heart is loyal and true, And likes to keep things square And do as he'd have others do * Go to the Easter Fair. Our volunteers in proud array Will battle on the green, And many a knight and lady gay Shall grace our festive scene; Ring ]3illy, too, with sable band, Will gbmn like Russian bear, And many Solomons so grand, Will join our Easter Fair. The players I have heard it told, 1\illbe a wond'rous sight; They sav'tis worth a heap of gold To see them Easter night. :For Richardson's, alone you know; ' Will make some thousands stare: Tis strange we never see thisshow, Except...

AMATEUR CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 19 April 1878

AMATEUR OOiCELLT. Public expectancy had been rats "d to a high pitch anenlt the concert that ,took place on the 10th inst. ' A liberal programme," with the a?rns of some of our best amateur singers attached, combined with the character and object of the concert, -were the means of raising that expectancy; and though high hopes of a successful concert were entertained, they-were fully realised.e It is not -generally expected that amateur singers should be severely criticised,and that many defects should hbe condoned, which in professionals would not be allowed. - This is a grave mistake, and hnas been"the means of allowing -amateurs to be come careless, and not so attentire in their rehearsaels as they should be. This was pal pable in one or two instances in tihe concert under notice. It is no great task to commit the werds of two or three verses ofasongto memory an as to prevent the necessity of walking half way across the stage to read every other line from the music sheet in front...

AGRICULTUR-AL NOTES. The weather has continued very favour able both for the growth of grass and the farmer. " Feed is more plentiful and the ground has been favourable for the sowing of early wheat crops. More rami, however, will soon be wanted in the drier portions of the Bendigo district, and especially on the newly-selected lands. The vine crop will be but little below the average of late years here, and fruit generally will be more plenti ful than was a little time ago expected. IFrom the Creswick Advertiser we learn that everything in connection with the agri cultural interest looks cheering in that dis trict also, tle late rains havhngquite changed the face of the country. The potato crop, so bng languishing for moisture, has made rapid growth during the past few weeks, and now promises to be above the medium. Farmers appear to be pushing forward with their ploughing, so as to have the seed in before the wet weather sets in. There is one'noticeable feature abo(it the farms, a...
