WALKING. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 27 March 1877

WlALKING. " You have seen men shuffle, hobble, slouch, swing, stride, pound; here is a who could walk. He was straight without stiffness; his head turned easily as he moved, and his eyes took in all that went on. All his motions were easy, uncon scious, without halt or haste. He did not tramp, but his arms and feet went straightforward in perfect time and tune, and seemued to consume the distance though he walked quite leisurely you had to quicken your pace not to fall behind him. The street seemed to roll back under his feet, and as he went before you the roar of the city turned to martial music and the tramp of marching hosts." When we read this description of the walking of Rodney Malverick, in Scrib ner's monthly, we thought to how many men of every hundred would it be applic able; or, in other words, what percentage of men are good walkers. We do not mean rapid walkers, or enduring walkers, but easy-mnoving,'graceful, natural walkers, who move as if it were a pleasure, not a la...

The Chronicle. TTESDAY, MARCH 27, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 27 March 1877

TTESDAY, MARCH 27, 1877.   IT is with much less surprise than pleasure that we find ourselves so fully in accortd with Dr. LITEaN on thc three great questions of the day-freetrade, taxation, and education. Thile learned professor declared himself at St. IKilda, on Ft iday evening last, for freetrade, pure and absolute ; for a land and pro perty tax, if required for revenue purposes ; and for a fair trial of our present educatioial systenm, before any change is made in it. But, " he was not so unreasonable as to say we were to get freetrade all at once, and pre cisely in the form we desired." Nor, whilst admitting that land should contri bute its fair and reasonable proportion to the public revenue,, like avery other description of prol:erty, did he think it " a fit subject for penal legis- c lation." And then as regarded n education, although not wishing to c interfere with our present systeW, e until it had had a fair trial, hlie ever was, and still is of opinion, "tha...

FANCY DRESS BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 27 March 1877

FANCY DRESS BALL.   Mr. J. G. Ware, of Koort Koort-Nong, and Miss J. Ware, gave a Fancy Dress Ball in the Orderly Boom, Warrnambool, on Monday, the 19th inst., which was very numerously attended. Our apology, if any were needed, for devoting so much space to a Fancy Dress Ball at such a distance as Wn'arrambool, is, that Mir. and Miss Ware are near neighbors, and that the account of this ball will be of greatinterest to their many Camperdown friends. The Orderly boom was beautifully decorated for the occasion by U. Scoborio, the music was supplied by Viney's Quadrille Band, and the refresh ments were provided by Davis Bothers, and proved of the very best quality. Mr. Robert Hood proposed Mr. J. G. Ware's health at the refreshment table, and in reply, Mr. Ware expressed the great pleasure he felt at seeing so many of his friends around him. He was shortly going on a visit to England, but should speedily return to Koort Koort Kong. The ball was kept up with great spirit t...

Mr. Jamnes M'Intosh, president of the shire, was "oted to the chair, and spoke in most en logistic terms of the candidate, who, he said, had done more for the district and the c6nstituency duiring his brief parliamentary career than Mr. Longmore had done for the 13 years be had been their representative. The object of the meeting however, on that occasion was to form-a strong central com mittee at Learmonth, so as. to'iave no stone unturned to secure Mr. Morton's election. Mr. James Baird said he had voted for, and supported Mr. Longmore, till he had found that gentleman departed from true liberal principles. .

COLIAC. (IT({M ( 1 (BY (filfl(. lsT T Coac, Mfarch27. The so called, Rerry snd Co's National Reform and Protection League, held a m eeting in the Oddfellows' Hall last week, for the purpose of deciding which of the two liberal candidates, Mr. O'Hea or Mr. Ower, they should pledge themselves to, and on a show of hands being taken, the majority was in favor of Mr. W. J. O'Hea, but not without some of the principal members of the League retiring, as they would not be bound to O'Hea, on account of being supporters of Mr. Ower. This state of things does not look healthy for O'Hea or his supporters, as the other can didate has got many friends here. Mr* O'Hea's late speech lost him many a friend, through his attack on Mr. Ower and the Gamperdown Chronicle. What ever made him come down on Mr. Ower, is the question of many, both pulling in the same boat, and yet turning round and saying as much as you are a traitor to the cause of true liberalism. Perhaps it was only a Lapsus Memoriae. If s...
