PETER PINDAR. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 26 September 1877

PE'TER. PINDAR. In Brandy Creek we can hardly come up to New Zealand in the way of managing meetings. A Mr. Allport, armed with a bundle of proxies, constituted himself a meeting, and proceeded to business, taking good care that he had a fair share of the good things going. W..get up meetings in a hole and corner sort of manner, carry our resolutions, &c., and forward, them to one or other of the departments :without letting the general public know anything about it; but we always have five or six present at one of our meetings; we petition the Government for all sorts of grants ; it might not suit the majority, but that is nothing to us; it beneh'ts the five or six, and of course the "almighty public," as MIr. Woods puts it, must be satified. Every Saturday afternoon every little clique has its own meeting, and big with its own self importance undertakes to represent the out side public. The first we hear about it is that either they have gone up to Melbourne to interview t...

A DANGEROUS ROAD. To the Editor of the South Bourke and Mornington Journal. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 26 September 1877

A DANGEROUS ROAD. To the Editor of the South nbourke and 3orningtoa Journal. SIn,-About three months ago the heavy rains washed away the culvert across the main road to Fern Tree Gully, leaving a creek fifteen feet deep without the slightest warning to prevent strangers travelling that road. Yesterday an accident occurred, which might cost the Shire Council of Berwick a great deal more than the one did at Portland, viz., £500. Mr. Dinnc, the barrister, and fiends, haod to eross the place some distance further up the creek, and broke the back spring of their buggy, which I think the Shire Council are justly liable to pay. fBy giving this p.ragraph a place in your valuable paper you may be the means of saving them a great deal of money in law expenses as well as damages. Yours &c., THOMAS GRIMWTOOD.

ADVENTURE WITH BLOODHOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke and Mornington Journal — 26 September 1877

ADVENTURE WITH BLOODHOUNDS. BY ABNER JACKSON. When I was a sutler, or purveyor, in the United States' armies, in the time of the Mexican war, I met with a startling adenture in the wilds of the great Western district. Our regiment had been watching the Indians for some months, and during all that time both the quartermaster and myself had no opportunity to replenish our stores. At length, how ever, it became evident that something must be done. I had no tobacco, no tea, no sugar, no coffee, and no whisky, and our men were getting uneasy. The want of tobacco was seriously felt.f?The nearest settlement, where we could hope to purchase goods, was fifty miles away, through a dense forest. Afer talking the matter over with the colonel, it we.a finally arranged that I should take one of the regi mental teams-a stout narrow-framed waggon, with four big males-and that the waggoner and a car porl should go with me. Jack Lombard was our waggoner, and the corporal selected for this service was...
