AIl wpnt smoothly utntil about three wpejo hpfore the day fixed for our marriage, when I received a letter from my French wife, announcing that she was in London, that her uncle was dead, and, that she was anxious to rejoin me and make atonement for her short comings in the past. I hurried at once to her lodgings, and an interview took place between us, which grew tlormy towatds its close. I told her of tn!e change in my position and circumstances. and said that if opr 'inion were to b,. acknowledged, she wo!!l in all probability have to endure the rnoie snprtifications and humiliations from my own family, which my own mpther, site was aware, hadl had to undergo in the past. I pnlarged upon otlr incom patibility of temper, said that our marriagp had been a folly and a inis for une, and urged upon her the usetlesaness of replting an experimePt whibch had already once so lamtentably failed-that of living together.

Let them loult at the one by the Corner Hlotel, and one that is in tile street near the Post tfleoe, and they need go no further i and every one who owns or occupies any premises in tile town should be com pelled to leatn out their back yards.

C ,rrr punrl el. (Ye do not hold ourselves responatibe for the o?pnioss expressed by our correupondents.] THt ACHERON BRIDGE. (To the Editor of the Standard.) Sxn,-ln reply to " Ratepayer's" letter re damago done to the Acheron bridge and re port thereon, he (" itatepayer") should make himself acquainted with tie principle upon which the bridge Is built before he rushes into print, as he speaks of piles whlere there are none, the bridge in question being simply a log structure. The Engineer, who should have superintended the erection of this bridge, must have either neglected his duty or there hIas been a want of engineering skill, otherwise he would not have allowed the pier, which Ihas settled down so much, to have been erected on a foundation of sand. With respect to the capabilitioes of the Shire Engineer, the majority of tile council appear to have no confience in him, they having recently dismissed him. In conclusion I may state that I havo known the President of the Shire for...

THE COMING ELECTION. (T?o the Editor of the Standard.) Sen,-I am not much at penmanship, but I suppose your printers will fix that. When August comes we shall have a lot of candi dates coming hero, with their friends now in the council, handshaking and all that sort of thing. It will be of no use, though. We will not vote for any of the present men. Lade and Dunn both promised us a lot; what have they done ? The Yacek common is the beet in the shire, but what good is it to us ? The herdsman allows Stodart's sheep to run all over it. Mason had to sell his place through no commonage. John M'Mlnn will tell anyone of the councillors how he has got on with his young cattle. Robertson and the Bakers don't care about the common, as they only graze sheep. Several letters have been sent to the conctoil about the herdsman ; as usudl, no reply. H. Milliard is the man that should be appoinlted ; he lives in the heart of the common, and for his own interest would look after the squatter's sheep ...

PARLIAMENTARY. Mr Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legislative Assembly: [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 13 July 1878

PARLIAMENTARY. Mr Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legisla tive Assembly : The Constitution established in this country nearly a quarter of a century ago was, without doubt, intended to be fashione3 on the model of the British Constitution. Unhappily the attempt to embody in com paratively rigid statute law tile elasticity in herent in the principles and practice of that Constitution has not been completely success ful, and differences in the interpretation of our Constitution Act have reeulted in bring ing the legislative machinery of the state to a temporary stand-still on no less than four different occasions. A measure of Constitu tional liecorm, aiming at a final adjustment of the legislative functions of both the Coun cil and the Assembly, will be immediately said before you, and undoubtedly will be considered from a patriotic point of view by the members of both Houses, irrespective of party. Its acceptance will put an end for all time to the recurrence of those periodical "deadl...

lx ttmdijn & ~ern ituidnard PfutUls?tED EVERY sATUROAY "" EXCELnaxon. SATURDAY, 13TH JULY. Tamn signs and tokens on the political horizon point unmistakeably to the fact that the amendment of the Constitution, more especially as it effects the relations of the two branches of the Legislature towards each other, and their respective powers and privileges, will torte at no distant time a burning question, upon which both people and Parliament will be called upon to pronounce an opinion, and whatever difference may exist as to the manner or direction in which a change should be effected, there can be very little as to the intrinaio desirability and necessity of a change of some kind being made. For our own part we fully concur with the assertion put into the Governor's mouth, as to the evils resultipg from the present unworka bility of our Parliamentary machinery, and thle necessity of devising some means for putting au end to the '" periodical recurrence of those dead locks, w...

COURTING DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 20 July 1878

- COURTING DAYS. Tag marsh'was'full of the little white pimpernel blossoms. ,Mary Ireton was wading about in there, looking for a ring ahe had lost. It was apparently a useless search, for Jlts liad dropped it from a boat a month before, when the marsh was covered two feet deep witb water. The tide had flowed out now; the grass and pimpernel or marsh wort were springing atrong under the warm May sunshine, and Mary, hoping ngaii:st hope, went splashing, bare footed, among the blossoms, searching anxiously for the ring-a blood-red garnet embedded in its own gray felspar, and set in the finest gold. A brother of St. Cyr's, her lover, had sent it from India to his lady-love in England. She was dead when it arrived; and it was sent back to St. Cyr the elder, who gave it to his brother, then a boy, and told him to bestow it upon the woman lie married, St. Cyr told Mary this history when he gave her the ring, and she Inew he valued it. Now she ihad lost it; and, connected with her dream, t...

PUkLItIIID EVERY RATURAY " EXCELSIOI5t."' SATURDAY, 20TH JULY. IN our last issue we dealt briefly with the proposals initiated by some promi nent members of the Legislative Counpil for the purpose of effecting a reform in the constitution of that body, and whilpt comtm.ending the attempt as a step in the right direction oe felt boqnd to condemn several of the details of the proposed measpre. If ind-ed we were to trke the Itin ciple? embodied therein as expressive of the views of the, majority of the members, we should have to form the conclusion that the Council has not yet awhile realised itq true position or the extent of the demand for its amend ment, and that so long as they declined to meet public opinion morp nearly than the aboye proposals would indicate, there was but little chance of any com .promise being effected likely to meet with general approval. But if the reform proposals of the Upper House are inadequare to the purpose for which they are ostensibly designed, and wo...
