HIORRIBLE RESULTS OF A REVOIl' IN A PENITENTIARY. A trial has just terminated in France which has liroved one of the most extraordinary in the annals of crime. There were sixteen of :tho iccused, and they wero arraigned at the Court of Assizes of Draguignan, chief town of the department of the Var. On theo3rd October last the Penitentiary of the Levant, thie largest of the group of isles known as the Islands of Hyibrs (a reformatory where young boys are trained to husbandry), rose in open revolt; and that rebellion had the most ap palling consequences, for no less than fourteen boys wore literally roasted alive by. the ring leaders.

SATURDAY, MAROH 28, 1867. EAnLY in April the Grain Show of the Agricultural and Pastoral Society of Bacchus Marsh, Pentland Hills, and Ballan, and also the show for grain and stock of the Melton Agricultural Society, will take place. The importance of these shows can scarcely be over-estimated. They provide a very whole some stimulus year by year for those who are engaged in agricultural and pastoral pursuits. The good which agricultural associations are fitted to accomplish will be seen by a glance at the past history of some of the more important of them. No country h?s made greater progress in the science and practice of agriculture during the last century than Scotland. In that country for ages previous to the beginning of the eighteenth century farming was carried on in a very slovenly and profitless manner. The yield of corn was usually about three times the quantity of seed, while pastures were of the poorest kind, as no artificial grasses were sown. At the present day, howev...

TIIE Bacchus Marsh Races are an annual fixture of considerable standing; for at least seventeen years ago races were held in the township, At that time no particular course was selected, but the convincing ground was marked out wherever fancy chose to dictate; sometimes on the main road, and oftener on the paddocks adjoining it upon which the buildings composing our township are now erected. It is some twelve years since the present course was first used, and the public is mainly indebted to Mr. J. Watt, late of the Border Inn, for its having been granted by the Government for racing purposes, and vested in trustees, Mr, Watt also caused the distances to be measured, and the course generally to b...
SELECTED POETRY. DOMESTIC MELODY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 23 March 1867
SELECTED POETRY, &nbsp; DOMESTIC MELODY. BY JOHN CRITCHLEY PRINCE. &nbsp; Though my lot hath been dark for these many long years, And the cold world hath brought me its trials and tears; Though the sweet star of hope scarcely looks through the gloom, &nbsp; And the best of my joys have been quenched in the tomb; Yet why should I murmur at Heaven's decree, While the wife of my home is a solace to me ? Though I toil through the day for precarious food, With my body worn down and my spirit subdued : Though the good things of life seldom enter my &nbsp; door, And my safety and shelter are far from secure;— Still, still I am rich as a poet may be, For the wife of my heart is a treasure to me ! Let the libertine sneer, and the cold one complain, And turn all the purest of pleasures to pain; There is nothing on earth that can e'er go beyond A heart that is faithful, and feeling, and fond: There is but one joy of the highest degree, And the wife of my soul is...
NEWS OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 23 March 1867
NEWS OF THE WEEK. We are in a position to state that the question of Water Supply to Bacchus Marsh is now under the immediate consideration of the Government. Doubtless, in a few days time, the residents in this district will be placed in full possession of the intentions of the Government. One of our most noteworthy residents has been removed from our midst by death. On Sunday last, Mr. William Symington, senior, C.E., died at his residence, after a short illness. This gentle. man was a colonist of some twelve years' standing, nearly nine years of which time was passed in Bacchus Marsh. It will be recollected that, a few months back, this journal contained an article showing that Mr. Symington, lately deceased, was the son of the real inventor of steam navigation, who, in 1789, fitted a boat with a steam propelling apparatus, which was tried on the Forth and Clyde Canal, and with such success that Lord Dundas and the Duke of Bridgewater earnestly assisted Mr. Symington in further d...

FARMERS' SOCIETY FOR GISBORNE. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867
FARMERS' SOCIETY FOR GISBORNE." To the Editor qf the Exarees. Szx,--Farmers' Societies all over the colony are holding"their annual shows, but one looks in vain for any indication that Gisborno is vindicating its position as one of the best agricultural districts in fthe whole colony by holding its own particular show of grain and dairy produce. Why, sir, does this deplorable apathy exist? I do sincerely hope that the circulation of your journal in this district' will rouse the people of these parts to a knowledge of their existence as residents of a township which is, perhaps, better known throughout the colony than any other of equal population, Why should Gisborne not have a flourishing. Farmers' Society as well as a Road. Board7 Its prosperity as a township is doubtless at a low ebb, and therefore there is all the more reason why its inhabitants should, endeavour to band themselves together in every possible way. There is an abundance of latent energy, amongst us, and. I hope th...
