No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

NEW QUARTER COMMENCES NEXT WE-EK. SATURDAY, MARCH 80, 1867. THE Limekilns scheme of water supply for Bacchus Marsh and Melton may now be looked upon as definitely agreed to by the Government. As we announced last week, they have had the matter under their careful consideration, and we are credibly informed that a sum of £80,000 is intended to be forthwith devoted to the purposes of the scheme. It is now some nine weeks since the Bac chus Marsh Road Board passed a resolution affirming the.desirability of having a supply of water for domestic and irrigation purposes, and asking the Government to afford them information as to the acreage proposed to be irrigated by the Limekilns Reservoir, and also the probable outlay. The latter item of information was apparently asked for with the view of calculating what amount of guarantee the Board would have to provide (if any). We have already expressed our opinion that the language of the Waterworks Act is so ambiguous that it leaves room for c...

MELTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

MELTON. (vrIOr OUR COIRESPONDENT.) Oun little township was the centre of a very heavy thunderstorm on Saturday evening last, which commenced about 0 p.m., and literally poured in torrents; in the course of a few minutes all the flats were ankle deep in water, whilst every channel was flooded to overflow ing. The creek, which was quite dry previous to the rain, was running tfriously within fifteen minutes fi'om the commencement of the storm, which lasted about two hours, but does not appear to have reached more than about three miles east and west of the town ship. Your renders no doubt are aware that in Melton there are two Churches' partly built, but, so far as I can learn, they are neither of them likely to be finished for some time yet, owing, of course, to a want of funds ; though I believe an effort has been made, or is about to be made; to get one or both of them into such a state as to make them available as places of worship-if with temporary fittings, and trust to better ti...

RENCONTRE WITH A BOA CONSTRICTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

RENCONTRE WITH A BOA CONSTRICTOR, CAPTAIN C--, of her Majesty's 84th Foot, was one of the most indefatigable sportsmen I ever met with, and the entire of his time that could be spared from regimental duty was passed in the jungles. He was a man of vast personal strength, could undergo any degree of fatigue,' in short, possessed a per fectly iron constitution. His habits, too, were anything but luxurious-a single attend ant carrying a rifle of large bore, a small carpet to sleep on, a limited stock of linen, and a good supply of ammunition accompanied the sportsman, who pursued his game by day, an'd at night sought shelter in some village, perfectly careless as to his accommodations in the way of food or lodging, his beverage being, moreover, the simple element, for lie never carried with him supplies of any kind, trust ing his commissariat aid to Providence and rural hospitality. In this manner Captain C- became well known to the natives of the country in every direction where sport...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

IN another column we give the gist of an address delivered by Mr. HowARD, the cele brated agricultural machine maker, before a meeting of farmers. It will well repay perusal, and thoughtful consideration after wards on the part of our farmers. We think that many of them will feel a touch of remorse, as it were, on reading-" The system gener ally pursued in American farming is one of exhaustion," They will find their conscience tell them that for " American" the word "Australian" might truthfully be substituted. Doubtless Victorian farmers, as a body, are not to blame for neglecting to till their land in the manner many of them used to do in the old country, for "circumstances alter cases," and it cannot be denied that the circumstances which affect a colonial farmer's source of livelihood are of an exceptional kind. He has the one great difficulty of having to pay highly for labour, while the price he obtains for his produce is-par ticularly just now-exceedingly small. He obtains hi...

BALLAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

BALLAN, (v1to0 oUR OWN COnRsESPON?ENT.) WHFEN the .1Epress commenced its career, there was a doubt in the minds of many as to its ability to carve out a usefuil course of action for itself; but there can be no doubt now but that theu 'press, by its steady and unceasing advocucy, has achieved much useful and practical good in the many towns through which it circulates. And this opinion is borne out by the numerous reforms tliat have taken place in Ballan since the first issue of the .Erprese. When we demanded for Ballan a respectable-looking cernetery, a farmers' society, good footpaths, and a bank, we were at once dubbed by the Guardian as "visionary reformers," who were talking and dealing in things impossible, and things that would never come to pass this side the sun. Well, the footpaths are completed, and reflect the greatest credit upon Mr. Kelly, the Shire Engineer, and Mr. MI'Intyre, the contractor. Of course, there a.e some who think other wise; but there is the work to spea...

AGRICULTURAL. MR. HOWARD ON AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

AGRI ULTURAL. MR. IIOWARID ON AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. W' abridge the following from the Ago,. It will be seen that many of the remarks made are applicable to the state of agricultural and other matters in this colony: Mr. James Howard, the well-known agri cultural machine-maker, who has recently returned from the United States, read an exceedingly interesting paper on the above topic recently before the Farmers' Club, Salisbury-square. America has been styled the granary of Europe; it is, doubtless, the largest corn. growing country in the world. It is mainly upon its agriculture that the progress of the country dependse its manufactures are com paratively unimportant, as from three-fourths to seven-eighths of the population are engaged in agricultural pursuits. That the farming should not have the neat and finished appear ance which it presents in England and Scotland is not to be wondered at, when the dearness and scarcity of labour are con sidered, and when it is remembered how lar...

SELECTED POETRY. THE PLANTING OF TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 30 March 1867

SELECTED POETRY. THE PLANTING OF TREES. To bring health-bearing waters from the sky, To fructify the earth when parched and dry; To cool the air and tempt each balmy breeze In every road and street, and avenue, plant trees ! And place ye there the seat where wearied age May rest in peace and contemplation sage. The shade umbrageous shall allure the fair, And merry children gambol here and there. Our children, bless them ! shall, in days to come, Their children bring, when glows the western sun, And with a grateful sorrow speak of we Who planted for their sakes the greenwood tree. Will tell how bleak and barren was the spot, The dust terrific, as the winds were hot; And how the good old folks, now dead and gone, Did plant each stately tree they gazed upon, How Goths and Vandals, once upon a time, Destroyed the glorious woods when in their prime. Vile, sordid knaves, each caring but for self, Their first and last, and only god—their pelf; How right and left their rude battalions go, A...

To tihe Editor of the E.xp2'os. SIn,--In your last issue, under the heading " Farmers' Society for G-isborne," a doleful lamentation is made by ." Gisbornito" that, " all over the colony Farmers' Societies are holding their annual shows, but one looks in vain for any indication with reference to Gisborne ;" and asks, " why does this deplor able apathy exist ?" " Gisbornite" must be very obtuse if he does not know the reason why, It is not that our land is bad, nor our ploughmen less efficient than those of other districts; it is not that less land is under cultivation; it is not that their are fewer farmers. " Why, then, should Gisborne not have a flourishing Farmers' Society as well as a Road Board ?" Just because there is a want of agreement among the members of the community. Is it not a fact that there are among us those who would take a leaf out of their neighbour's book; for their own agn grandisement, but are very careful to conceal what they think would be of benefit to othe...
