NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867
NEWS OF THE WEEK, There has not been so much interest taken by the public in the proceedings of the Road Board for some time past as was shown last Monday. The cause being that tenders for some large works were to be opened, of which particulars w:ill b found elsewhere, It is to be hoped that, nest year, the funds of the Board will be less absorbed by heavy works in conncetion with the construction of the Main Road, The deputation from the Limekilns also.contributed to enliven the prd. ceedings of the Board. We think the best course was adopted iit appointing a sub-committee to inspect for themselves the causes of complaigt made by the deputation, and have no doubt that the Board will be inclined to deal justly with the Pyreete ratepayers. At the Road Board meeting on Monday last, steps wore taken to put matters right in regard to the day of meeting. The chairman said that the meeting, on the 25th ult., was unanimously in favour of adjourning for a fortnight, and such should have be...
SELECTED POETRY. THE LINKS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 March 1867
SELECTED POETRY. THE LINKS OF LIFE. How precious are the links of life Which bind us one by one, Forming a longthen'd golden chain, In childhood's years begun. Time, who with sure, unerring force Loosens material ties, Rivets anew affection's chain, And weakening power defies, Closely, more closely, do we draw The chain around our hearts, And fondly hope, unbroken still, To keep till life departs. But ah ! in vain—it may not be: When nearer is enwrapt Around our hearts some precious link, By death's rude hand 'tis snapt. The dearest tie that bound our lives Is sever'd and in twain; Still must we mourn the vacant place, Still bear our broken chain. And thus, when from our shatter'd hearts Link after link is fled, When, cheerless, hopeless, all alone, Stern duty's path we tread. God, o'er our dark despairing souls, Still sheds his glorious light, Assures us He our broken links In Heaven will reunite. —Family Herald, PENNA.

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 23 March 1867
BALLAN. (roRM OUR OWN coRRESPoNDENT.) TiIis week I send you a report of our Annual Races, which has been the best meeting' Ballan over had, and it goes to prove what might be done if the people of Ballan were only alive to their local interests. Ballan, before the establishment of a local newspaper, was a town almost unknown. But to-day it can boast of having the greatest number of entries for a Maiden Plato than any town in the whole of the Australian colonies ever had, viz., nineteen entries and seventeen starters, But much more might be accomplished if the supporters of our Annual Races would only establish a permanent Jockey Club, by whom the whole of the business could be transacted during the twelve months, instead of leaving everything to be arranged in a few days by one or two who take interest in the progress of the town. I have maintained, and main tain still, that Ballan will never take ean important position until every institution is established that her present positio...

OORRE B ONDNOE. [TV e arc not responsible for the opinions expressed by our correspondcents.] MADDINGLEY CEMETERY. To the .Editor of the E?xpress. Sir--There is a subject which I have often wished to see taken up by the local press, as it is one in which I am sure not a few of your readers are interested-viz., the sadly neglected state in which our cemetery is sufitred to lie from year to year. Surely it is high time that the trustees, whoever they may be, were doing something more than they have ever yet done. Have they no funds`? That can scarcely be, when we all un fortunately know that, during, the bygone years so many of our departed friends and neighbours have found their last restino' place in the \Maddingley burial ground. THe question then comes to be, what is beino' done with the necessarily accumulating fees9 Tn whose keeping are they ? It is time that the gentlemen in charne were tendering to the public an account of their stewardship. NMy object, however, in addressing ...

BALLARAT IIARKET., WlTDNESDAY, 20TH MARCH. MESSRS. HEPBURN AND LEONARD report; Fat Cattle: The supply this week on ordinary occasions would not have been equal to require. ments, but as some of our principal buyers had large stocks on hand, sales were the reverse of brisk. Quotations:-Best bullocks, £8 to £12 12s. 6d.; medium ditto, £5 to £6 10s.; inferior, from £3 upwards; cows, at proportionate rates. Fat calves: The few in brought extreme rates. We sold for Messrs. Dougall fifteen, at from £1 19s, to £3 Os. per head, Fat Sheep: We have the pleasure of reporting the fact (lately a most unusual occurrence) of two good drafts of wethers having come forward. One lot, the property of Mr. Neil Black, sold up to 15s.; and the other, Messrs. Chirnside and Hood's, to 14s. 3d.

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 23 March 1867
/MELTON. (Fnom oUn e COInRIESPONiD T.) i a previous communication I showed that the affairs of the School were not every= thing that could be desired. I. now return to the subject, and hero I would state that nothing contained in these remarks is intended as a reflection on the teachers. So long as Mr. Scott and .lMiss Lambio faithfully and honestly disclhargo the duties of their posi tions, and fullfil the conditions of the agree ment entered into by them with the Local Committee they cannot be blamed, and I may frankly state that I have never heard any one express as much as a doubt on this head. Nay, more; I am well aware that the Committee and the parents of the children are quite satisfied with the teachers, and so far as my own personal knowledge (though that is very limited in this case), I have not the smallest objection to urge against either of them. After the evidence of utter neglect of all the affairs of tihe School supplied by th records of the proceedings of the Commi...
