    It must have been a poor first impression that overseas visitors formed of Melbourne when R.M.S. Orford berthed last night in the teeth of a howling gale that made the pier at Port Melbourne surely one of the most unpleasant spots in a city thoroughly out of humor. It was a churlish blustering welcome and the Orford passengers, and the friends who were greeting them, soon left the wind-swept decks for the shelter of the lounges as they exchanged impressions of peoples and places over seas for home news.
    Theatrical Personalities.
    It is just five months since Madame Martel left her home at Upper Beaconsfield for a visit to England and Scotland, but into that time she has packed a series of most interesting experiences. In London she went with the Australian singer, Malcolm McEacharn to the theatrical garden party that is held once each year In Hyde Park. Many artists in whom Australians are particularly interested were there — Vera Pierce, to be remembered from Chu Chin Chow, busy at the strawberry and cream stall; Mario Tempest, Gertrude Lawrence, Margaret Bannerman, who is at present studying the lead in Strauss's new play Three Waltzes; Ann Harding and Noel Coward, accompanied by eight stalwart policemen to clear the way for them, and the Hon. Mrs. Pitt-Rivers, who expressed a longing for the Australian sunshine again.9
  • 3 Jan 1938, Madame Martel, who had been in ill-health for some time, died suddenly at her home at Upper Beaconsfield yesterday morning. She was the wife of M. Charles Martel, of Messrs. Prouvost, Lefebvre and Co., wool buyers, Collins street.10

    'For three years the wool market has been unpayable to growers, brokers and all concerned. Now it has become pay able and promises to remain so or improve further,' said Mr. C. Martel, a Melbourne wool buyer, who returned in the Nark unda today. Mr. Martel confirmed this opinion in an interview which he had with the chairman of the International Wool Federation (M. Dubrulle).20
  • 11 Aug 1933, "WAKE UP, WOOL GROWERS." Australia's prestige as a wool country was being damaged by complaints of short weight and irregular packing said Mr Charles Martel, a French wool buyer, who has returned to Melbourne from France. Mr. Martel said that M Maurice Dubrille, president of the In ternational Wool Textile Federation, regretted that Australian wool was fast losing ground in its reputation. While other wool-producing countries were do ing their utmost to gain ground, Austra lia was failing to maintain the reputation it had previousy held. The markets of Victoria and Albury were the worst offenders, said Mr. Martel, who thinks that M. Dudrille's complaints are well-founded. "Wake up, wool grow ers! With care a good reputation can still be saved," was Mr. Martel's warning and advice.21

  • 21 Aug 1939, WOOL POSITION SOUND
    The wool position was still very sound, and would remain so as long as the political situation was steady, according to Mr. Maurice Martel, a wool buyer for the firm of Prouvost-Lefebre, Roubaix (France), and Melbourne, when he returned to Melbourne last night on the Otranto. Synthetic wool was not a significant factor in the situation, and, on the whole, a slight rise was to be anticipated, he said. Mr. Martel has been studying the wool trade in England and France.7

    A pretty wedding was celebrated here on the 28th ult., the contracting parties being Miss E. M. Ramage and Mr T. F. Black, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. W. Murray, of Berwick. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a dress of white crepe-de-chine, pinafore style, over white ninon, with shadow lace under blouse, with a train trimmed with orange blossom, and a lovely veil and wreath of orange blossom. The bride carried a very pretty artificial bouquet of white flowers and streamers. The first bridesmaid (Miss Sims) wore a dress of white crepe-de-chine trimmed with lace and carried a very pretty bouquet.
    Two little bridesmaids (Miss B. Carter and Miss Vera Unwin) wore white shadow lace over pink silk, with pink sashes, and carried very pretty bouquets of pink and white flowers and pink streamers. Private W. M. Black, brother of bridegroom, acted as best man. After the ceremony the guests, numbering 44, sat down to an excellent breakfast, at the conclusion of which the usual toasts were honored, with the addition of "Our Boys at the Front." The happy couple, amidst a shower of confetti and good wishes left by motor for Melbourne, en route for Bayswater, where the honeymoon is to be spent. The bride's travelling dress was a navy blue costume with pretty hat to match. The numerous presents were handsome and useful.12

  • 23 Jun 1883, ACCIDENT.—Last Thursday, about midday, an accident happened to a man named Enos Brown, a storeman in the employ of Messrs. Watson Brothers, of Burrowa-street, by which he sustained a fracture of his right leg. While engaged in unpacking a case, containing corrugated iron in sheets, which was standing on end in the yard, nearly the whole bulk of the contents fell suddenly upon his right leg, fracturing the bone between the knee joint and the ankle. He was conveyed to the hospital on a stretcher, and is going on favourably under the surgical care of Dr. Heeley. Brown is a member of the local Odd Fellows' Lodge (M.U.)32
  • 4 Aug 1883, HOSPITAL OPERATION. — Our readers will doubtless recollect the case of Enos Brown, a man in the employ of Messrs. Watson Brothers, who had his leg broken while shifting some iron from a case in his employers' yard. Brown has ever since the accident been a patient in the hospital, but the fractured bones failing to unite, and extensive sloughing taking place, it was found necessary to amputate the limb below the knee joint. He was placed under chloroform on Wednesday, when the operation was performed by Drs. Heeley and Hutchings. The patient is progressing favourably.33
  • 10 Oct 1883, Public Thanks.
    I the Undesigned desire to return my sincere thanks to Drs. Heeley and Hutchings and the Nurse, Miss Johnstone for their skill and attention to me during my stay in the Hospital, and also to my brother Oddfellows and the Sons of Temperance, and the public in general for their kindness to me during my late severe illness. Signed,
    ENOS BROWN,

  • 3 Feb 1915, LOCAL NEWS. A team from the Melbourns Cricket Club visited Beaconsfield on Monday, the public holiday, to play their return match. Mr Enos Brown got together a strong opposition, and the locals proved victors by ? runs to 131. For Beaconsfield, M. S. Paternoster topped the score with a well made 45, his last three hits being fours. R. Mitchell 31, V. Luke 14 not out and A. Anderson 10, also got double figures. For the M.C.C., Fream 27, Crighton 19 and Walker 17 were best. In a second innings M.C.C. closed with 4 for 80. Smith scored 14 and Walker 24 not out. Beaconsfield lost 8 wickets for 49, Hall being 15, R. Paternoster 15 and A. Anderson 10. The visitors were entertained at luncheon, afternoon tea and tea, in the hall, by the ladies.
    The tables were tastefully laid out and liberally supplied with good things. Everything passed off successfully and with great credit to all concerned.39
  • 3 Jan 1917, UPPER BEACONSFIELD. SPORTS MEETING.
    The Beaconsfield Upper Sports Club held their annual sports on Monday last, in aid of the funds of the local Red Cross Society. Last year the club was able to hand over to the Society a cheque for over £40, but it is not anticipated that Monday's sports will give such a satisfactory result.
    The attendance was not as large as usual. A good programme of events was provided, and the arrangements for the day were satisfactory. A commencement was made with the principal events after lunch, and everything went well up till about quarter past three, when proceedings were abruptly terminated by a heavy thunderstorm which flooded the ground and compelled all present to seek shelter. As, after waiting for some time, the weather did not show signs of clearing and the ground was in a sloppy condition, the committee met and decided to postpone the uncontested events until Foundation Day, when it is proposed to entertain a number of returned soldiers. Mr James Hopkins, who is acting as president of the club in the absence of Lieut.-Colonel G. H. Knox, who is on active service at the front, had charge of the day's arrangements. and was assisted by the vice-presidents. Messrs C. P. R. Hurditch and R. H. Bunt. Mr T. Gilpin carried out the duties of starter, and Mr W. J. Harvey Smith was timekeeper. Mr Enos Brown had charge of the cash and was paymaster for the day, all prizes being paid on the ground. Mr W. Russell was at his usual post as secretary, and carried out his duties satisfactorily. Messrs H. Glismann, A. V. Kirkwood, M. Regan, Button, McMahon, W. Berglund: C. Jensen and P. C. Anderson, who constituted the committee; also rendered good service daring the day.
    The ladies of the Red Cross Society had charge of the refreshments, and worked energetically. Amongst those present were Mrs Harvey Smith. Mrs R. H. Bunt, Mrs A. V. Kirkwood. Mrs Marsh, the Misses Bunt and Miss E Fowler.40
  • 7 May 1930, LAW AND JUDICIAL. AFTER the expiration of fourteen days from the publication hereof, application will be made to the Supreme Court of Victoria, that Probate of the Will, dated 22nd August, 1923, of ENOS BROWN, late of The Lodge, Beaconsfield, in Victoria, Gentleman, deceased, may be granted ALBERT BROWN, of 66 Orrong Crescent, Caulfield, Salesman, being the executor appointed by the said Will.41

(Witness) Land-Note20 Feb 1878 Packenham, Febr 20th 1878
To A J Skene Esq., Surveyor General of Victoria, Melbourne
Sir, We the selectors and residents of Gembrook and Packenham County of Mornington humbly request that you will please order that a new road may be surveyed through the selection of Mr Arthur Knight in the Parish of Packenham. This road we request will be to start from the north east corner of Mr Knight's selection, thence south west distant at about five chains more or less and being west from the two chain road and thence ending at the south east corner of the said selection. This new line of road will be on the side of a very high hill and with little expense can be made into a very good road. The present one chain road is too steep that it is almost impossible for us to get either up or down it and ought never to have been surveyed in that place. Trusting that you will give this a favourable consideration.
We have the honor to be, Sir, your most obedient servants.

    The Licensing Inspector v. John Milne; selling liquor on 27th February to other than lodgers or bona vide travellers.—Constable John William Balchin, of Elsternwick, deposed that he, in company with Constable Holland, called at defendant's hotel at about half-past eleven a.m. on the above date and asked for drinks, but were refused. They returned again two hours afterwards and were supplied with two glasses of beer, for which they paid 1s.— Cross-examined by defendant: I said we were not exactly travellers. I did not say we stayed at the Beaconsfield hotel on the previous night. I don't remember saying when we returned the second time that we had been up in the ranges for a walk. Constable Holland corroborated Balchin's evidence re being supplied with the liquor.—The Bench, after a consultation, fined the defendant £5 with 14s. costs, in default distress, in default one month's imprisonment.
    Permission was given to John Milne to change the name of his hotel situate at Beaconsfield from Bush Inn to Cardinia Creek hotel.-Granted.38
  • 27 Jul 1887, A Trip to Beaconsfield
    Last week one of our representatives paid a visit to the Cardinia Park Hotel, Beaconsfield, kept by John Milne. Leaving Dandenong by the 3.30 train, there is nothing to attract notice, except immense sheets of water, between Hallam's Road and Narre Warren. Alighting from the train at Beaconsfield station the visitor is saluted with a heavy shower of rain, and I look round to see if I can find any good Samaritan, and fortunately an old friend is exposed to view, in the person of Mr Glismann, who is always ready with his faithful 'Tommy" to carry the pleasure seekers to the sylvan dales and alpine altitudes of that thriving township.
    After a few cursory remarks about the weather, Mr Glismann invites me to take a seat in his wagonette, which is gladly accepted as a shield against the storm, which is raging fitfully all around. After about a quarter of an hours travelling we pass the palatial residence of Mrs Armytage, better known as "Holm Park" with its lofty abutments facing the "Cardinia Park" and standing as a paradigm of the future of Beaconsfield. This place previously belonged to Andrew Keating, who twenty-seven years ago migrated from Collingwood and set to work to claim this primeval waste, which was then completely covered with water and ti-tree scrub. We then pass Mr Anderson's residence, about a mile further on, who is also going in for improvements. Another half mile over, and the Cardinia Park hotel is reached. The building which is of brick, stands on the corner of the Berwick and Beaconsfield roads, and about three miles from the Beaconsfield railway station.
    On being introduced to Host Milne, we are admitted through a large hall door into the private parlour, when a good view of the interior is placed before us. On each side of the hall door and over the fanlight, large bunches of hops are carved in the stained glass, which the proprietor informed us, were put there as a momento to the late George Miller, who formerly owned the place and built the old wooden hotel, which preceded the present brick structure. He was the first who introduced the growing of hops in the district some twenty years ago, and for that purpose had a broad acreage reclaimed from its wild state and converted into a hop plantation, from which were taken some splendid specimens of hops, and the place, which previously was the haunt of the dingo and the kangaroo, became a place of mirth and labour, and instead of the nocturnal howling of those denizens of the forest the voices of boys and girls reverberated through the trees as they pulled the hop from its tendril and placed it in a receptacle, in which it was carried to the hop house to dry. He was also successful in obtaining several prizes and an hon. mention for his first attempt.
    Two of the houses which he built for drying the hops still remain to be seen, and since his death no enterprising person has taken any steps in the matter, nor has anyone attempted to resuscitate the declination. The proprietor then showed us through the building, which contains fourteen rooms, a kitchen, and cellar. The rooms are large and well ventilated, and the windows fastened with patented spring locks, and nothing is left undone to secure the comport of boarders and visitors, who will find comfort in the place and civility from the proprietor. On the north side of the building, and adjacent to the bar, is a large billiard room in course of erection, which will be another source of amusement.
    About 100 yards from the hotel is the Cardinia creek, where fishing and shooting is to be found in abundance, and scenery in all its rural beauty is to be found there, and the Cardinia park terminates nearly opposite the hotel.
    We then inspect the brick yards, which are about a quarter of mile from the hotel, where a good specimen of brick can be procured at a reasonable rate.
    Reece and Co. are at present employed making a large quantity of bricks and tiles which are for sale, and persons desirous of dotting the little township of Beaconsfield with villa residences cannot do better than visit the brickyard, and see for themselves, as the proprietor has on sale bricks and some splendid sand for building purposes at very cheap rates.
    And as the shades of evening were fast making their appearance, and the night promising to be by no means favourable, we returned to the hotel just in time for tea.
    During tea the conversation was principally on the bad state of the roads in and around Beaconsfield, and our old friend, of stage coach notoriety, said that during his twelve years of experience in this place, (Glismann selected 1875) he had never seen things so bad as they were at the present time, and as to the roads, why (says he) you will require a pair of horses to take a passenger on some parts of the road now. Train time is now approaching, we bid adieu to the blazing fire, kind friends and comfortable parlour to face the rain which was coming down heavily, and a drive of about half an hour brought us to the Beaconsfield railway station and after bidding my kind friend goodbye, and taking a seat in the train, in a few minutes more I was at home, after my "Trip to Beaconsfield."39

    From John Milne, Beaconsfield, in reference to his tender for a contract let at last meeting, and which was rejected on account of an error in same. The writer said that if the mistake had been made by any other contractor but himself it would have been rectified by the councillors. Cr. Brisbane said the letter was most insulting to the council, and was a specimen of the thanks they got for looking after the interests of the rate payers. He moved that Milne be disqualified from tendering for 12 months. The Chairman suggested that Milne receive an intimation that should he again offend in this manner he would be disqualified.-Cr. Brisbane remarked that as Milne was anything but a sensitive individual such a caution would have little effect.-Cr. Goff thought it hard that a contractor's tender should be rejected because he made a mistake in the bulk sum.--It was finally resolved, on the motion of Crs. Brisbane and Goff, that Milne be requested to apologise for his discourteous letter, failing which the council would take extreme measures.48

  • 2 Nov 1892, BERWICK POLICE COURT. MONDAY, 31st OCTOBER. Before Major Bartrop, P.M., and James Wilson, Esq., J.P.
    Duncan Cameron v. John Milne, wilfully damaging property belonging to plaintiff.
    Mr. Little appeared on behalf of Cameron, and Mr Thomson for defendant. The complainant's statement set forth that defendant's cattle were continually straying into a paddock rented by plaintiff, owing to the fact that defendant had pulled the fences and gates down. The latter had been warned that the cattle would be impounded, but had taken no notice of the warning.
    Duncan Cameron deposed that Milne took away the gate and opened up the fence in his paddock so that defendant's cows got in ; the gate opened into witness's paddock from the main Gembrook road. Defendant also took down a notice board (notifying that trespassing stock would be impounded) from the paddock, and threw it out on the main road. Cross-examined by Mr. Thomson: Witness did not see the defendant take the board down, but defendant admitted to witness that he had done so.
    Hugh Cameron, son of plaintiff said that he knew the defendant. Remembered 14th October. Saw defendant in the Gembrook road on that day ; he was chopping down a gate leading from his (witness's) father's paddock into the main Gembrook road. Both John Milne and his son were destroying the gate, which they placed in a paddock owned by Milne. The gate broken down was in the line of a proposed road through the properties. The road was not at all well defined, there being on one side, only about 60 or 70 yards of fencing, which was used for yoking bullocks up in.
    Wm. Brisbane, agent and auctioneer, produced the agreement between the Beaconsfield Heights Estate and Duncan Cameron for the lease of the land in question (the whole of the property, except blocks 8 and 9). Witness was secretary for the company, and could say that the company did not give Milne any right to effect carriage way through the land.
    Cross-examined by Mr. Thomson : The company never leased the land to Milne. This concluded the case for the plaintiff.
    John Milne, licensee of the Cardinia Park Hotel, said he had always been under the impression that there was a road through the property. Witness put the gate up, and thought he had a right is to take it down.
    The Bench decided that they had no jurisdiction, and dismissed the case.
    Alex. Milne v. D. Cameron. The proceedings were taken under the 14th section of "Pound Act," 1890, and charged defendant with having illegally impounded certain cattle belonging to plaintiff. John Milne said that on the 14th October he and his son saw the defendant and some of his men driving about 20 head of witness's cattle from the paddock, and defendant said they were taking the cattle to the pound. Witness tendered the pound and trespass fees to defendant but he refused to accept that ; afterwards made another offer to defendant of the pound fees, but he again refused: the cattle were impounded in the name of Duncan Cameron, junr.
    Alex. Milne, informant, corroborated in the above evidence, and added that Cameron said to witness's father, when the latter offered the trespass fees, that he would not take the fees because he had given notice that he would impound all cattle.
    Jonathan Denny, contractor, gave evidence to the effect that he had witnessed Milne offer Duncan Cameron some money. The defence was that the statement of the plaintiff that he had offered the fees on the first occasion was false. Duncan Cameron, Senr., swore that plaintiff did not meet witness near the paddock from whence the cattle were taken, and only met him near the pound. Milne then offered the fees to witness, who said "give it to the man in charge of the cattle; I have nothing to do with the impounding." Milne said "you old ——, if you were in Ireland, you would be shot."
    Duncan Cameron, contractor, son of previous witness, deposed to taking the cattle out of the Beaconsfield Heights Estate paddock, and impounding them; witness's father was not present at the time, so the tender of the fees could not have been made to him. Witness was authorised by his father to impound cattle from the paddock.
    The Bench held that Duncan Cameron, junr., was only agent for defendant, and was not the proper person to impound cattle. Moreover, the Act bearing on the matter states that if the trespass fees are tendered to the person in charge of such cattle they must be accepted. Defendant was fined 5s; costs £3 13.51
  • 9 Nov 1892, Mr. John Milne, licensee of the Cardinia Park hotel, met with rather a nasty accident yesterday. He was driving a young horse in a dray, when it took fright, capsized the vehicle on top of Mr. Milne, seriously crushing his chest and otherwise injuring him.52
  • 23 Nov 1892, Mr. John Milne died at his residence, Cardinia Park, on Monday last. He was thrown out of a dray about a fortnight previously, and the injuries he then received were of such a severe nature that he succumbed as stated.
    We regret to have to announce the death of Mr. John Milne, of the Cardinia Hotel, Lower Beaconsfield, which took place on Monday. About three weeks ago Mr. Milne met with a severe accident whilst driving a young horse, which overturned the trap. The latter fell on Mr. Milne's chest, crushing it terribly. Drs. Elmes and James were called in, but held out no hopes of recovery, and the poor fellow sank gradually till he died.53
  • 25 Nov 1893, MILNE.—In loving remembrance of our dear father John Milne, dearly beloved wife of A. Milne, Cardinia Park Hotel, Beaconsfield, who died 21st November, 1892.54

Sir, We the selectors and residents of Gembrook and Packenham County of Mornington humbly request that you will please order that a new road may be surveyed through the selection of Mr Arthur Knight in the Parish of Packenham. This road we request will be to start from the north east corner of Mr Knight's selection, thence south west distant at about five chains more or less and being west from the two chain road and thence ending at the south east corner of the said selection. This new line of road will be on the side of a very high hill and with little expense can be made into a very good road. The present one chain road is too steep that it is almost impossible for us to get either up or down it and ought never to have been surveyed in that place. Trusting that you will give this a favourable consideration.
We have the honor to be, Sir, your most obedient servants.

  • 2 Mar 1872, In some parts of the county of Mornington the soil and climate appear to be well adapted to the requirements of the hop plant. Last week Mr. George Millar, an old hop grower from the neighborhood of Farnham in England, but now residing at Pakenham in Mornington, called at our office with some fine bines laden with beautiful hops. Mr. Millar three years ago planted half an acre of ground. With hop plants as an experiment, and these succeeded so well that he has since increased the area, and has now two and a half acres under this crop. The soil of this small hop garden is that usually met with on the edges of swamps, and was formerly covered with tea-tree scrub. It is naturally drained, and beyond working the ground with the plough no special preparation in the shape of trenching was made before planting the hops. Indeed he has found that where the ground was deeply stirred by grubbing up one or two trees the plants have not thriven so well. The rows stand eight feet apart, and the "moles" or hills are six feet distant from each other in the rows. The plants are planted on "the square," as Mr. Millar said, so that he can use the plough with the greatest freedom in two directions, and thus reduce the hand-hoeing and cleaning to the smallest possible area. The plants in the oldest portion now in full bearing are about 12 feet high, and will yield this season at the rate of about 11 or 12 cwt. per acre of excellent hops. The variety grown is that known as the Golden Grape.16
  • 16 Mar 1872, HOP-GROWING.
    Sir,—In looking over your agricultural news of the 2nd of March, I was much pleased to see that hop-growing in the district of Berwick is likely to prove successful. I write to inform you of a very extraordinary growth made by the hop in this district. About seven months since I got one hop set from Mr. C. Souter, of Berwick—the same sort as Mr. Miller's. I planted it upon an old shaft five feet deep, first filling in the earth and raising it about a foot abore the level of the ground. As the plant grew I have had to place three different poles— ten, twenty, and thirty feet— to it. The plant grew to the top of these, and is now some ten feet down, making in all over forty feet of growth in one season, and it is literally covered with hops. There are some thousands of acres of ground in this district suitable for the growth of the hop.
    Yours truly, JAMES ELLIS.

  • 15 Dec 1880... Councillor Dobson believed people would rather travel by the road known as Knight's road. If there was a bridge at Miller's, people could not be prevented by a flood from getting to the Beaconsfield Station. Councillor Bourke said the Council could not expend the money in question on the bridge referred to. Councillor Gibb said the road past Miller's would cost £200, and a bridge would cost at least £1500. The present bridge answered the purpose, except that it did not provide for floods on the low-lying land the neighborhood.-Councillor Dobson " I wouldn't mind resigning my seat and undertake to bridge the creek and low land for one fourth of the amount stated." The President made some remarks on the subject. If the road was made good to Miller's, traffic could afterwards get somehow to the Beaconsfield staion. The motion was seconded and put and carried. Councillor Souter moved that plans and specifications be prepared, and that the Councillors for Pakenham and Berwick Riding inspect both the roads on which it is proposed to expend the money. Seconded and carried.29

  • 27 Jul 1887, A Trip to Beaconsfield
    Last week one of our representatives paid a visit to the Cardinia Park Hotel, Beaconsfield, kept by John Milne. Leaving Dandenong by the 3.30 train, there is nothing to attract notice, except immense sheets of water, between Hallam's Road and Narre Warren. Alighting from the train at Beaconsfield station the visitor is saluted with a heavy shower of rain, and I look round to see if I can find any good Samaritan, and fortunately an old friend is exposed to view, in the person of Mr Glismann, who is always ready with his faithful 'Tommy" to carry the pleasure seekers to the sylvan dales and alpine altitudes of that thriving township.
    After a few cursory remarks about the weather, Mr Glismann invites me to take a seat in his wagonette, which is gladly accepted as a shield against the storm, which is raging fitfully all around. After about a quarter of an hours travelling we pass the palatial residence of Mrs Armytage, better known as "Holm Park" with its lofty abutments facing the "Cardinia Park" and standing as a paradigm of the future of Beaconsfield. This place previously belonged to Andrew Keating, who twenty-seven years ago migrated from Collingwood and set to work to claim this primeval waste, which was then completely covered with water and ti-tree scrub. We then pass Mr Anderson's residence, about a mile further on, who is also going in for improvements. Another half mile over, and the Cardinia Park hotel is reached. The building which is of brick, stands on the corner of the Berwick and Beaconsfield roads, and about three miles from the Beaconsfield railway station.
    On being introduced to Host Milne, we are admitted through a large hall door into the private parlour, when a good view of the interior is placed before us. On each side of the hall door and over the fanlight, large bunches of hops are carved in the stained glass, which the proprietor informed us, were put there as a momento to the late George Miller, who formerly owned the place and built the old wooden hotel, which preceded the present brick structure. He was the first who introduced the growing of hops in the district some twenty years ago, and for that purpose had a broad acreage reclaimed from its wild state and converted into a hop plantation, from which were taken some splendid specimens of hops, and the place, which previously was the haunt of the dingo and the kangaroo, became a place of mirth and labour, and instead of the nocturnal howling of those denizens of the forest the voices of boys and girls reverberated through the trees as they pulled the hop from its tendril and placed it in a receptacle, in which it was carried to the hop house to dry. He was also successful in obtaining several prizes and an hon. mention for his first attempt.
    Two of the houses which he built for drying the hops still remain to be seen, and since his death no enterprising person has taken any steps in the matter, nor has anyone attempted to resuscitate the declination. The proprietor then showed us through the building, which contains fourteen rooms, a kitchen, and cellar. The rooms are large and well ventilated, and the windows fastened with patented spring locks, and nothing is left undone to secure the comport of boarders and visitors, who will find comfort in the place and civility from the proprietor. On the north side of the building, and adjacent to the bar, is a large billiard room in course of erection, which will be another source of amusement.
    About 100 yards from the hotel is the Cardinia creek, where fishing and shooting is to be found in abundance, and scenery in all its rural beauty is to be found there, and the Cardinia park terminates nearly opposite the hotel.
    We then inspect the brick yards, which are about a quarter of mile from the hotel, where a good specimen of brick can be procured at a reasonable rate.
    Reece and Co. are at present employed making a large quantity of bricks and tiles which are for sale, and persons desirous of dotting the little township of Beaconsfield with villa residences cannot do better than visit the brickyard, and see for themselves, as the proprietor has on sale bricks and some splendid sand for building purposes at very cheap rates.
    And as the shades of evening were fast making their appearance, and the night promising to be by no means favourable, we returned to the hotel just in time for tea.
    During tea the conversation was principally on the bad state of the roads in and around Beaconsfield, and our old friend, of stage coach notoriety, said that during his twelve years of experience in this place, (Glismann selected 1875) he had never seen things so bad as they were at the present time, and as to the roads, why (says he) you will require a pair of horses to take a passenger on some parts of the road now. Train time is now approaching, we bid adieu to the blazing fire, kind friends and comfortable parlour to face the rain which was coming down heavily, and a drive of about half an hour brought us to the Beaconsfield railway station and after bidding my kind friend goodbye, and taking a seat in the train, in a few minutes more I was at home, after my "Trip to Beaconsfield."37
