CORRESPONDENCE. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondents.] FOOTPATHS FOR BACCHUS MARSH. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 March 1867

CORRESPONDENCE. jVe oVre not re oa?,ibe for the opinions ecpressed by our correspondents.] FOCOTPATHS FORf BACCHUS MARSH. 1'o the Editor of the Express. Sin--'Will vou allow me a small space to urge upon our :load Board the consideration of the fact that the footpaths of the town. ship require a little attending to P They are very narrow, and, every winter, the gullies which exist in place of gutters get wider, and thus the pathway gets narrower, and, in the course of time, will disappear altogether, causing some trouble to replace. Perhaps as the Poard have not much money to expend in lr'go works, they will turn their attention to the execution of a few small works in the immediate vicinity of the township.--I am, yours respectfllly, W. L. IBacchus Marsh, Feb. 20.

HATUItDAY, MACII 2, 1867. 'I'it! Assembly has refused, by a majority of forty-five to twenty-four, to endorse the proposition of the ionourable member for Ge;loing, "that the proposed alterations in the tariff are not satisdactory." This pro Jposition, by itielf, is merely a general truism which might be affirmed of any tariff, for it is impossible to devise a sehenme of Customs duties, or any scheme of taxation whatever, which will not bhe objected to as unsatisfactory by certain portionsi of the cotmrmunity. Tax ation, in any shape, is a thing which people submit to its a matter of necessity, and not as a matter of satisfaction. It is a price which, in the existing, state of society, the members of a State are obliged to pay for the protection of life anli property, and for the many advantages which result from the preservation of order and good Governmennt. It would be mottre satislhetory, however, if these advan tages could be obtained without individual anerifice, a state of th...

SELECTED POETRY. THE FLIGHT OF TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 2 March 1867

SELECTED POETRY, THE FLIGHT OF TIME. By ALEXANDER SMART, Author of "Rambling —Rhymes," &c. Why lies the time so fast? Days, months, and years glide by, And each looks shorter than the last,   And swifter seems to fly; On viewless wing still rushing on, To join the flight of ages gone, Their silent course they ply. It seem'd, when we were young, Time linger'd on the way, For hope, like any syren, sung The live long summer day— Oh! sweetly sung of promised bliss, Too bright for such a world as this— Too beautiful to stay. And then the winter night, So lively and so long, When round the fireside, blazing bright, Went merriment and song, Long were the hours—for we were then Impatient to be happy men, And join the busy throng. Hope's radiance in the heart, In youth supremely blest, Can transitory joys impart, The brightest and the best: The ills of life come all too soon; And why should clouds obscure the noon That warms the youthful breast ? When life's young dream ...

The Reformers have re solved on bringing their demands formally before Parliament, and will not try to enforce them by disorderly or violent demonstrations. Ireland is quiet, and appears likely to remain Bso. The Times says that Sir Fred.

Red hot embers shower. ing out upon the ground, down this dark avenue, and down the other, as if torturing fires woer being raked clear; concurrently, shriolks and groans and grinds invading the ear, as if the tortured were at the height of their hsuflring. Iron-barred cages full of ct.. lo jangling by midway, the drooping beasts with horns eoutangled, eyes frozoen with terror, and months too: at least; they have long icicles (or what seem so) hanging from their lips, Unknown languages in the air, conspiring in red, green,...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 March 1867

MELTONT. TiLE township of Melton has never been very noted either for good or evil associations, for startling or " important" discoveries either in finds of gold or fiuds of any kind ; neither has it ever been so astonishingly prosperous for a time, as many colonial townships have been, that the succeeding depression has caused the district to wear the appearance of "better days of yore." We cannot very well apply Goldsmith's words "Sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain," to Melton, for there is nothing very lovely about it, although perhaps it is the loveliest village on or near to Keilor Plains ; which is not saying very much either. A short time ago, Melton was rather notorious, owing to the supposed mushroom poisoning case; and the Melbourne papers gladly seized upon the incidents connected with the deaths which then unfortunately occurred for furnishing a " sensational " report to their readers. Probably Melton was never so much talked of before or since. And yet it is ...

A FORK TO MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 March 1867

A Fomuc To M1AToHI.-The Gorman journals re late the following anecdote:-" Sauxauson is one of the suburbs of Frankfort, and is partly occupied by gardeners, who are considored, rightly or wrongly, to be a clownish lot. When the Prussian troops entered the city, every house was obliged to billet one or two soldiers. T'ho inhabitants of Saxhausen acquitted themselves of this duty with a very bad grace, and one of them showed such nmanifest signs of ill.will towards his guest that the latter, when he sat down to dinner, placed his sword on the tablo by his side with a very signifl cant gesture. The countryman said nothing, but. loft tho room and returned in a moment with an enormuous pitchfork, which he laid down beside the sword. Tho soldier flushed up with anger, but the other quietly observed, 'I thought that for so big at knifeo a big fork was required; if youlikeo, we can each of us mIake Use of our own implement.' This was all the satisfaction the son of MLars could o)btain, so h...
