BLUE MOUNTAIN SPORTS. ON Monday, the 25th ult., a grand pic nic party was given on the rocky top level of the Blue Mountain, by the Ceres Lodge of the G.U.O.O.F., to celebrate the anniversary of the first quarter of the lodge.

SELECTED POETRY. FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 March 1867

SELECTED POETRY. FLOWERS BY.J. KILGOUR. Companions of infancy ! children of spring ! Sweet beds for the butterfly's wandering wing, That deck the green hill and the forest's dark gloom, The bower of the maiden, the dust of the tomb ! Ye're food to the bee, the philosopher's theme, Of sweet dew the cup where the morning's young beam Drinks sweet-scented diamonds, that clustering cling To your bright rosy lips, sweetest children of spring ! Companions of infancy ! children of spring ! Gently soothed into slumber when eve's fairies sing, Bright gems, with pure infancy's brows, that have blent, Though silent, ye speak, on love's embassy sent, True lessons how early life's springtide may cease ! High pictures of purity ! emblems of peace ! Deck my loved one's fair bosom, where bright curls swing, Companions of infancy ! children of spring ! Companions of infancy ! children of spring ! Ye are seen where the waterfalls thundering ring; Ye are soon all in beauty where wild torrents swell, A...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867

MELTON, (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENIT.) A MEETING of the Committee of the Church of England was 'held on Monday, the 11th instant, when it was determined, as there are now funds available for the purpose, to proceed without delay in so far finishing the church as to make it capable of being used as a place of worship. It appears that up. wards of £600 has been expended on the work so far, and a fiurther sum of about £200 will be required to plaster the internal walls, provide doors, floor, glass and fittings, seats, desk, pulpit, &c., the whole of which the small number of members of this Church residing in this district can scarcely hope to accomplish this year. By-the-way, 1 would remitid those at i3acchus Iarsh that Melton gave substantial aid to the Church Committee there, and at no time would assistance from the Marsh be more welcome than at present.

BALLAN, (FrnoM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) TnE annual Harvest Home ;Tea Meeting, in conniection with the Church of St. John's, took place on the evening of the 14th inst., beneath a large marquee erected close to the church. It was in every way a great success. There is, perhaps, no town in the colony where such gatherings are better and more earnestly supported than in Ballan. Many of the ladies provided tea at their own expense for the large tables over which they presided, and at some of which forty persons sat down. Among the leading ladies of the congregation who presided, we observed Mesdames C. H. Lyon, T. A . Musgrave, R. Ocock, Lvall, IHarbord, Rugg.

GREAT FIRE AT THE CRYSTAL PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867

GREAT FIRE AT THE CRYSTAL PALACE. (FUoM THE " HOME NEWS.") A rInE broke out at the Crystal Palace on Sunday 80th December, which destroyed the whole of the tropical department, with its flue arts courts, At two o'clock, or a few minutes before that hour, a fire was found to be raging in the neighbourhood of the lecture room. Dense masses of smoke filled the whole of the tropical department, which is separated from the rest of the building by an immenso canvas screen. The inhabitants of the neighbourhood soon saw that something was amiss in the Palace. Several gentlemen loft their houses and hastened to the building, but for at least half an hour those inside would not admit any one; perhaps they did not hear the shouts and calls at the entrance doors. At length, how over, a little before three o'clock, some dozen gentlemen got in, some of them by escalade. When they entered, they found the fire making terrible progress. The roof of thlie end where the fire raged had become red hot, ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867

The following singular paragraph appears in the Ararat Adverliser, February 22 -In one of the areas called Kiora, lying to the southward of Ararat, the settlers, who are very anxious to discover springs of water upon their selections, have engaged the service of an old man, apparently between sixty and seventy years of age, who pro. fesses to discover springs by the aid of a divining rod. He has already pointed out spots where he confidently states water will be found at a moderate depth, and the farmers are now engaged in practically proving his skill. We are told the diviner holds a slender strip of steel between the finger and thumb of both hands, and walks about the land with it in this position. When water is approached the rod trembles violently, and the motion ceases as the place is left. One of the settlers, Mr. T''omkins, with the view of testing his accuracy, had the diviner blindfolded (after pointing out the spot where water would be found) and taken to another portion o...

To watch the proceedings of "Her Majesty's Opposition" in our Assembly, from time to time, affords an interesting, and, occasionally, a htimiliatiaig study. We will not refer to their proceedings last Session, unless to remark that the evil courses then indulged in of speaking against time, and otherwise insulting the good sense of the community, have apparently been improved upon and increased this session. The late debate upon the tariff was so much interrupted by per sonalities-and almost exclusively introduced by the Opposition members - that Mr. MI'MAIHoN, being a gentleman, felt con strained, like. PALSTAFF, to disavow the leadership of such a ribald regiment. Mr. LANOTON did not feel ashamed to aver that the Attorney-General "gloried in setting the law at defiance," and even, deliberately re affirmed it after the heat of the :debate had 'passed. Mr. M3'LELLAN appears to be deter mined to earn a reputation for a species of American rowdyism. He is reported to have expressed a ...

"MORE COPY." AN EDITOR'S PLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867

" MORE COPY." AN EDI'TOR'S PLAINT. Once, in Autumn, wet and dreary, sat this writer, weak and weary, pondering' o'er a memorandum book of items used before, (book of scrawling head-notes, rather; items taking days to gather them, in hot and sultry weather, using up much time and leather) pondered we those items o'er. While we conned them, slowly rocking, (through our mind queer notions flocking) came a quick and nervous knocking-knocking at the sanctum door. " Sure that must be Jinks," we muttered-" Jinks that's knocking at our door-Jinks, the everlasting bore." Ah, how well do we remind us, in the walls which then confined us, the papers that lay behind us, and before us, -and around us, all scattered o'er the floor, Thoug'ht we, "Jinks he wants to borrow some old papers for to morrow, and 'twill be relief from sorrow to get rid of Jinks, the bore, by opening wide the door." Still the visitor kept knocking knockin.' louder than before. And the scattered piles of papers madly out so...

ADVENTURE WITH AN AMERICAN BEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867

ADVENTURE WITH AN AMIERICAN BEAR. Aionao the earliest settlers in the wilds of Salmon River was a Vermonteso of the name of Dobson-a resolute and athletic man. Returning one evening from a fruitless hunt after his vagrant cows-which, according to custom in the new countries, had been turned into the woods to procure their own sub sistence from the rank herbage of the early summer-just before emerging from the forest upon the clearing of his neighbour, the late worthy Mr. Joseph Sleeper, lie saw a large bear descending from a lofty sycamore, where he had probably been in quest of honey. A boar ascends a tree much more expertly than he descends it, being obliged to come down stern foremost. My friend Dobson did not very well like to be joined in his evening \walk by such a companion, and without reflecting what he should do with the "var mint" afterwards, he ran up to the tree on the opposite side from the animal's body, and just on his reaching the ground, seized him firmly by both h...
