THE LAKE COOPER CATASTROPHE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
THE LAKE COOPER CATASTRZqPHE. A correspondent furnishes the Bendigo Independent with the subjoined c particulars of the recovery of the body of one of the three unfortunate young men, who were dr'owned in Lake Cooper by the capsizing of a boat on Sunday, 7th August. On Monday evening last the men who were workling with the drags from a boat touched some . thing which they imagined was one of the objects of thir search; they tried several times to get a grip of the substance with their irons but were unsuccessful, and the task was relinquished for the night. Next morning on the men entering the lake they saw a body floating on the surface of the water, which on being brought to the shore was recognised as that of John Smith, far. mer, one of the lost. It presented a sight shocking to behold; not that it was in a state of advanced decomposition, on the cobn trary, considering the long time which had elapsed since the body sank, it is surprising that it retained its original purity to ...
CHARLES DICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
CHARLES DICKENS. it seems that the causes which led to the sudden:leath of Mr Charles 1ickens vere probably intensified by the .persecutions to vhich lie had been exposed for many months .prevous to that uhiversally deplored' event. ,At ., time when, from the excessive' strain upon his neirvous syst'm, and the over stimnu lalion oq the brain, froau ?iintermittent in tellectua! ltbor, he stood in need of. absolute repose, ana wvhein, as'ie epfressed it,. lie in tended to interpose a ily.leaf in iis book of life, hle was assiiled, both by letter and per soally, by people? ho took' it 'into their head that he was'no better than a heathen, who recomineinded htin t salve his 'con science by making&liberal douations'to this or tha t pious or cliriitable istitution ' and who went the hlngtth of encdosing in their let. ters to hin short Torms of a codicil to his will, so that if he s', reluctant to part with his money during I '°i, he mighit mala bequesb. of it, to be avaihlal'. aft...
STATE SNOBS. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
SrATE SNOBS. JFrom one of our exchanges (Yass Courier) we clip the following :-Government oflicials are very indignant when their shortcoimings are animadverted upon. They do not like the low fellows of the Press, or ucre corn mercial men, to obtrude advice or censure noon them; and over the breakfhst t.abld swear outrageously and talk of "duck ponds" when such a fate befalls them. They :would very much like to be left alone, to breathe a !urer air than that contamiriated by thq breath of the "profanum vulgus." But bbefore indulging in such " high,.mightyism" would it pot t? ;e!! if Government officials were to seriously 'and honestly consider their relative position to the public, that of servants to master? We are very far indeed from wishing it to oe supposed that we would counsel Government ollfcials to pro pitiate the favour of the masses by any one sacrifice which would tend to lessen their honesty, their real. usefulness, or their gens tlemanliness. It is a good thing indeed ...

THE DIGNITY OF THE FARMERS' LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
THE DIGNITY OF THE FARlIERS' L I Fi E. Th.ere is a higher dignity than that of poetry or painting that attaches to the far mer's profession; a dignity which makes him walk as erect and look the blue heavens .as. proudly in the face as any man wvho treads the earth. No inaustry to, which human hands were ever set since the first pair were made is deserving of higher esti. mation than his. For, of all the toilers of the earth he stands in the Clcsest co-partner, ship witli Divine Providence in ite realm of natuo. See the condition of this co-part uership the eapital.dhich each invests in one summer's crop. Here, for example, is a cultivated farm of one hundred acres of land. The Creator might have made the land bear.. stout crops of wheat and corn all of itself, wiitliout man's help; but He did not and would not. IHe condescended to admit man to a partnership with Him, in variegating the verdure of those acres, in covering them with waving grain and yellow harvests. lie would not let ...
THE TAKE-ALL. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
THE TAKiE-ALL. The following is from the prize essay of Thomas MIosely Agg;. A district thoroughly impregnated with take.ail it may take years to clean as the germs, however discouraged, cannot often be effectually destroyed. 'They may live in the diseased roots of any field laid down with grasses, or rnunnlng'ild with rubbish. But the insects can be continually harassed, ana under a p;roppr style of farming it must de crease, and eventually disappear. To cure a district would require a well concerted plan of action, just as much as it does to eradicate scab. Every farmer must do his best in the way of cultivation,' and' take-.all would no longer be the dreaded enemy it has been in .soinie places. Even so, in a district free from the ravages of the pest, bad cultivation may go on for a number of years; indeed, in so unsatisfactory a state, that it would, become unpayable; and no sign of the enemy would yE appear. But if some of the larvm were imported they would be found to acclimat...
AN ABORIGINAL LEGEND. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
AN ABORIGINAL LEGEND. (From a Correspondent of the Daily Telegraph.) Those who believe that the aborigines of Australia have had no oral traditions handed &nbsp; down to them are greatly mistaken, for they seem to have had a great many, and at their corrobborees or festivals they retail little else than legendary lore. From some of the more intelligent of the Hotspur and Craw- ford River blacks I have eliminated the meaning of several of their historical frag- ments, the most interesting of which appears to be "The Two Moons." They say that long ago, in the days of their first fathers, before the tarpaulins of the white fellows' ships were seen on the waters, Hotspur was a great country and very warm. In its &nbsp; forests roamed kangaroos bigger than bul- locks, wombats fatter than white fellows' pigs, and birds whose eggs were larger than the melons of Leywhollet(sic). On its plains were abundance of sweet yams, and at all times water to boil them. There were two m...
Local. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 1 September 1870
Our Police Court report, and other miat ters of local interest, are unavoidably held over until our nxet. The Kilmorte Ladies Benevolent Society rill hold their annual meeting in the Me hhanics' Institute on Tuesday next. Punctual to tirpe "The Australian Jour nal" has this month made its appearance, and it still maintains its high character as a valuable family journal. A great deal of literary merit is noticeable in its pages, and its publication in our midst is creditable to the colony. On Friday evening, the 9th instant, a concert will be given in the Mechanics' Institute, the proceeds to be devoted to the Hospital. The programme, which we pnbi lish in another column, will give our readers an idea of what they may expect for their money. If the selection of the music, ec., e do not prove attractive to some, they have only to remember the charitable object for * which the concert is being given. Fresh notice of election has been issued to fill an extraordinary vacancy in the Kilm...
