Kilmore Free Press PUBLISHED THURSDAY MORNING. THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 1870. REGISTER! REGISTER!! REGISTER!!! [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

rY II.iIfD TIHUBSDAY '" ,LNNG. THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 1870. REGISTER! REGISTER!! REGISTE R!!! We have frequently found it necessary to express our astonishment at the very slight interest taken by a large number of persons in having their names duly placed on the voters' rolls of the colony, and judging by the laxity in this respect at present displayed in this district, through people not becoming possessed of the franchise, we must charac terize the electoral system as anything but universal suffrage. That which is worth having must surely be worth a little trouble to secure it, but this seems not to be by any means the general impression. Even those who were before now reasonably dii gent in securing electors' rights and thereby ens titling themselves to a voice in the affairs of the country have now fallen into such a state of carelessness as to care little whether they become registered or otherwise, and the necessary consequences of such a feeling as this must he that a very lar...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

A question of importance as affecting toll charges was raised at the Emerald-hill Police-court on Satur day, in a case in which the lessee of the Fandrid'ge road toll pate was complained against by Mr F B Ha n, the lessee of the abbatoie, for making an il legal charge, The point on which the decision of the Bench was asked was whether one payment cleared the toll for any number of journeys backwards and forwards drir g the 24 hours, or for only one return journey. An employse of the plaintiff had occasion to go through the g.ta both ways twice in one day, and the defendant levied a toll each time. Mr Kerferd, who appeared for the plaintiff, argued that one pay.. ment was sufficient forany number of journeys within the 24 hours, relying upon the words of the 327th section of the Boroughs Statute, which state that no toll shall be demanded 1 for any animal or vehicle returning or going through any tell bar at any time within 24 hours after toll abhall have been paid at such toll bar i...

A TOO BRILLIANT IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

A TOO BRILLIAhT IMAGINATION. A. young and not unpleasant looking womna, named Elizabeth Hannan, the victim of a too brill liant imagination, was brought up at the Becohworth Police X 'urt, on Thuredey, charged with obtaining board and lI.dging by means of false pretenses. From the evidence adduced it appears theat Hannan, who is by no means unknown to fame, had visired some of the best hotels and private boardinghouses in Beechworth, and obtained leave to stay for a few days, on the representation that she was oonnett.d with respectable persons iknown to the landlords. Certain circumstances, lhowever, soon leaked out, and from occupying the best part or in a first-class hotel, the young l ..y soon found herself a resident of -to her a famdliar place-the wuatob-house. The career of this stung woman is, in some respects, an extra:.rdinary one. :o addicted is she to the vice of lping, which Falastff regarded as the peculiar pro perty of rubicund old men, that on one occasion she was ar...

Original Poetry. HOPE ON. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

HOPE ON. -9-- Hope on ! let hence thy motto be. Through ev'ry change and strife Its beams will light you to the goal Ol terminated life. Hope on, through ev'ry adverse hap, And daunted do not be; Attempt the laurel eminence Of better destiny. Hope on I-the surly blast may blow Its keener breath of doom, Yet in the general decay A flow'r will frequent bloom. Hope on ! -though round thee gather fast The shades of unsucess- Let not contemporary wrongs A nobler rage repress. Hope on, and struggle hard to win The monumental race; For know that Hope's inspiring ray Will aid thee in the chase. Hope on! but covet not to get The guerdon of a day ; Aspire superior to rise Where honor points the way. Hope on I-dismiss deluded whims Of flatter'd Vanity ; But hold unyieldingly the gem Of simple Honesty. Hope on through days unfortuaate (If such it b' your lot), And think 'twere better not to be Than live to be forgot. Hope on !-improve your manhood's prime In converse with-mankind, And scan the ...

A MASTER SWiNDLING lT IS SERVANT. (FROM THE ARGUS.) The preliminary investigation into a charge of fraudulent dealing of a kind fortunately not very common here, by a master towards his servant, was made on Thursday at the City Police Court, Melbourne. A miller named William Brockman was charged, on summons, -with converting and appro priating to his own use, ivith fraudulent in tent, the snm of £800 which had been en i trusted to him by George Barron, his ser vant, as guarantee for the .latter's honesty. Tae evidence for the, prosecution showed Brockman being then a miller in Bridge road, Richmond, engaged Barron at_ £1 a week and board to .sell' the produce of the mill and collect the money. In order as he said to have some guarantee that Barron would not cheat him in his dealings, he required- him to deposit the sum of £300, and a written agreement having been drawn up, signed aid: attested, to the effect that Barron should serve Brockman-for three months at £1 a week and board, ...

AN ESTATE'IN ENGLANvB D CLAIMED' BY A PITTSBURG FAMILY. (FROM TIE PITTSBURGH GAZETTE.) There's no mistake in the figures.

OUR MAD REPORTER. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

OUR MID REPORTER. " Stay, reader, stay and hear my tale; he is not mad who pleads to thee"-or if he is he has the proud consolation of knowing that he is not the only madman at large. A discovery of the greatest importance-one likely to lead to results, in the world of science, of the greatest magnitude, has been made not far from Seymour during the past week or two. Portion of a blackfellows' tomahawk has been found down a reef shaft -fully thirty-five feet beneath the surface firmly embedded between the footiwall of blue-slate and the hangingwall of sandstone. I have seen the interesting relic, and can safely pronounce it to have been fashioned by human hands. It is composed of what is known in New Zealand as a " blue-greeni stone," or a conglomerate of almost a!l the known minerals-at least my unprMa tced eye could distinguish gold, silver, copper, lead, and antimony in this remarkable tool of ancient and savage warfare. Ihis effeo. tually does away with the existing erroneous th...

THE NORTH-EASTERN RAILWAY AND THE NEW TRACK TO THE PROPOSED DRAY CREEK STATION. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

THE NORTH-EASIPERN RAILWAY AND THE NEW TRACK TO THE PROPOSED DRY CREEK STATION. -4---~-. "Sic volumus, sic jubemus," seems to be the motto of the engineers who marked out the N. E. line of railroad. When first sur veying the line they took their course through the wildest parts of the bush, stua diously avoiding the haunts of men. In vain petition after petition from the inhabit tants of the numerous townships along the Sydney Road poured into the Railway Comi missioner's office, praying him to cause the line of railway to pass near these townships. In vain did old and respected colonists as sert that their properties would lose more than half their value, and that ruin would be brought upon them if the railroad would be made in its present track. Notwith' standing all these public and private appeals the Railway department adhered to its ori ginal idea, and surveyed the present line through some of the most desolate and mi, frequented parts of the bush that is to be found in the wh...

SIMILARITY OF NAMES AND THE CONSEQUENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 25 August 1870

SIMILARIPY OF N.A MES AND TEE CONSEQUEN CES. (FRoM THE ARGUS.) A curious case of a similarity of name led. ing to a misappropriation of money was heard at the City Court, Melbourne, on Wednesday. About Feuruary last a man named George Benhamn was in London, but as he was about coming to Melbourne he paid £100 into the Union Bank, and rel ceived in exchange a draft for that amount payable in Melbbourne. Having duplicate copies of this draft, he retained one; but in order to provide for any accident happening to the document, he placed the other copy in an envelope, which he posted to Melh bourne, directing it to "George Benham, to be left till called for," intending to call at the Melbourne posttoflice on his arrival, and get the s cond copy back. Having des, patched i , e set sail hiiuself, ' but the en velope contalnirg the drafe arrived first,: and teaching the Melbourne post-office was duly kept there until it should be called f6r.
