No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 9 May 1885

Sir,-There appears to be some miisapP" bension with regard to the erection of Gov??: ment buildings in the municipal reserve, the impression being that the Council shouldget a money value for a site for post and tclegraph: offices, etc.,. It should be remembered, in the first place, that the land was reserved for public purposes and that it cannot, be' used in any other way. It is felt to be a convenience both to the Government and the inhabitanuts that the new post and telegraph office should be erected in the commercial centre of the town instead of the vicinity of, the Keep. It is known that the Government will not purchase land for the purpose while there are public lTnm!s tvniihb!e. Every one admits that thhe accommodhltion at the' Foresterst HallFis insufnieientand the site ii. convent, and on this ground an effort has been made to induce the Government toerect a suitable building which would -answer the requirements ofa courthouse and municipal chambers, combined, and~so save...

SATURDAY, MAY, 9, 1885 The well-known business of Mr J. H. Henley is advertised for sale. The Chinese leper from Camperdown arrived here by special box train on Tuesday,in charge of an attendant. The necessary conveyances were engaged for his removal to Quarantine by the health authorities. The emaciated state of the invalid was indeed a pitying sight to inspect it. The correspondent who forwards this paragraph also adds "This affliction, is not contagious to white people. Leprosy originates from color and dirt." It has been considered advisable to postpone the Sports Club Social which was to have been held on the 21st inst. on account of it being too near the Foresters' anniversary which is to take place on the 25th inst. The social will be held early in June, but the date has not been finally settled. ·This step has been taken on account of several of the gentlemen on the Social committee beihg also on the Foresters' committee and it is impossible for these gentlemen to give atten...

Not a man of us had any idea that thousands of rebels were quietly stretched amongst the scrub and behind boulders and hillocks, quietly watching us as we innocently and jovially worked at our zrn bas. A few pickets were out and a squadron of cavalry scouts as well-I beliere 18 all told-so we were content. Suddenly there was a great cry of alarm, rising loud above the din of the fatigue parties and the acconm panying bustle of a great camp, and then hoarse cries from the officers, " Stand to your arms, men !" Never was word of command more promptly obeyed. But the men were scattered many of them a considerable distance from their arms. The brave fellows did their best, however, to get into their allotted posit...
