A REPLY. (To the Editor of the Standard). [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 June 1878

A REPLY. (To the Editor of the Standard), I,--" Mulshroom" lhans at last turned up in his true colors no tihe heir apparent annd fithful reprcsentcativeof the house of Biddy Moriarty, of Daniel O'Connoll tanw, posecasing in ia remarkable degree every trait of that renowned oll body's temperament and disposition. Iliddy when beated, to avoid the inconvenience of remaniing a laughling-stolk in her native land, crossed St. George's Channel one night and enlisted in the marines. This hiitorical fact will aufliciently necount for her dis tingullhed endowments asserting thecselves in her next of kin. Tihe result of the liberator's victory was somewhat asimilar to that of minlle, he won £50 slld I saved £5. At first eight there appears a diffelrence of £45, but that is amply compenseated for in that I now have the honor of a place in the list with macgie trates, lawyere, bankers, elcloohnllntcre, councillors, M's.P. squatters, judges ot Agricultural Showsc-in a word every despio. able pers...

THE ACHERON BRIDGE. (To the Editor of the Standard.) [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 June 1878

THE ACHIIEt(ON BRIDGE. (To the Editor of the Standard.) Smn,--Reports were read at the meeting of the council on the 18th inst. that one of the piles of the bridge erected some years ago at Wylie's had been und rmined by the into floods, and that the bril ge at that point had gone down about 3 feet. I want to know, Sir, why the Engineer was not sent out to sec to ropairing the damage, and a?curing it, in sto.ed of the President, who may be a very good wheelwrigllt, but hab not, so far as I have been able to learn, been prepared, either theoretically or practically, as an engineer. It is a waell-'!nown fact that the foundations of a structure, if faiulty in the first Instmnce, will not stand, andt if renimdiable at all, it can only be done so on seientiflc principles, which if not properly applied invariably leads from hbad to worse, and in the present instance the courso being pursued will probably lead to this bridgo being completely washed away by the next flood, at a direct loss ...

4nrrrs{juuDenrr. (We do not hold ourselves responsibl for the opinions ex~ressed by our correspondents.] ALEXANDRA FREE LIBRARY. (To the Editor of the standard.) SIn,-I should have considered it quite un necessary to reply to IMr M'Watera' letter in your issue of the 15th, totally irrelevant as it is to the point under discussi'on, had he not therein stated that hie is a "member of the library." I have no doubt that the committee of that institution, both colleotively and indi vidually, are intensely gratified to find that at gentleman of Mr M'W?aters' influence and standing "would not like to see the library collapse." If, atter such subslantinl help, the Meclhanie' Institute ever does become a thing of the past. mankind will indeed be debased. However, the test of membership is taken by tilhe public at large to be the payment of a subscription, Doubtless this is a material and unworthy way of looking at things, atnd only indulged in by small-souled people.

YE FITE. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 29 June 1878

YE FITE. How they did hit and slash away, The blows like bullets fleow; The fight was right, until in eight Came a gentleman in " blue." The fight is o'er and they no more In strife will meet again; Of fisticuffs they've had enough, And each was much to blame. The Patriarch, just for a lark, Took the small man in his arm, With jump, step, and hop into the shops Thus securing him from harm. Meonrc. Those who fight, but don't get hit Need not fear to fight a bit. No. 7.-He came from afar, and settled even in the land of Molesworth, and the people said, this man has com mon sense and lie must sit in the senate, and behold he took his seat therein. He doth that which he sees is good, and spoaketh only that which is to the intent and purpose. He ruleth with George and others those who breed cattle and horses, and who send their animals unto the show; he giveth the prizes also, and hath the keys of the place wherein at the proper time these shows take place, my masters; also, at all the p...

OHIP 9S Only catch the fellow who has been destroying the tree-guards, my masters, and wheon caught by all means make it hot for him, for what can be she object? surely not spite; oil, no I that cannot be. I would not have believed there was such a mean rascal in our little communlty, and yet it seems there is. You never can tell till the numbers are up, or the guards are down, my masters. And so they managed to dismiMs the Shire Engineer, and that, too. without any actual complaint, and without a chance to defend himself If there had been. This is not the proper way, my masters; it is cruel, it is un fair, it is mean, it is unEnglishlike sack a man without a moment's notice, and he no common servant, but a gen tleman.

MELBOURNE LETT ER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The " surprise" of the week has been the announcement of the all but corn pleted arrangement for the purchase of the Hobson's Bay Railway Com pany's lines by the Government. Mr Lyoll, who distinguished himself by first initiating the basis on which the crisis compromise was effected, is again the hero of this unexpected rapproloe ment, and the foundation of the bargain is that the shareholders are to got £80 per shire for the property, Irrespective of stores and other property, which will bring the figure up to about £82, the total purchase money being £1,320,820.

AGRTCULTURAL NOTES. FARM WORK FOR JULY. AnRAIIAuM LINCOLNE'S MONTHLY REPOnT. The unusual favorable season for ploughing and seeding the land lhas enabled farmers to get well ahead with their work. According to reports, and judging from the extra quantity of seed grain forwarded from Meol bourne, a much larger areaof land must have been sown than usual. Root Crops.-No time should be lost in preparing the ground for these, whether intendedl for mangold, sugar-boeet, carrots, &v. If tile ground lhas ibeen manured and deeply tilled, as I have before recommended, and kept freeo from weeds since, through the use of tie scarifier or heavy harrows, it ought to be in a nice mellow condition and tit for the first sowing, by end of the month or beginning of August. Although a lew of the first sowings of mangolds may run to seed, there will always be a use for such run away plants, for they coime in handy when tihe natural grasses are dry, and when green succulent food is very welcome, ...

THE THORNTON PLOUGHIING MATCH. -o- One of those pleasant and social gather togs which go so far to promote unity and good fellowship amongst people in country districts came off at Thornton on Friday last, the 21st inst., when about a dozen farmers with their teams assembled and ploughed a paddock containing several nores for Mrs Bauderwig, who from various causes was unable to get her crop in this season. The recent wet weather and heavy floods militated greatly against the attendance both of ploughmen and the general public, but fn all that a goodly number of persons from all parts of the district assembled on the ground, and great interest was manifested in the day's proceedings. In order to excite competion several prizes were given, the prinielpal being a splendid pair of plough bsek.bands kindly presented by Mr Sault, saddler, Alexandra, and which were won by J.

WE have already referred in terms of approval to the proposal, emanating from the Richmond Town Council. that the Government should undertake tihe raising of loans on behalf of municipal districts requiring to borrow money for local public works, and we are glad to find that it has met with the unanimous concurrence of the conference of repre sentatives, which assembled in Mel bourne on Tuesday last. It seems to us that the consolidation of municipal loans by this means must alone ensure much more advantageous terms to the districts desirous of participating in I them than they can possibly hope to obtain by isolated and separate trans actions, and that this will especially hold good in the case of remote and sparsely populated localities, whose circumstances and prospects are not so familiarly known to capitalists as thickly populated metropolitan suburbs or other large centr...
