The Recent Fight Near Axedale 1890

From: The Bendigo Advertiser, Friday, 13 June 1890, Page 2

” The recent Fight near Axedale.—William Minter, a woodcutter and well-known footballer, and M. O’Neill, a farmer residing at Axedale, both young men, appeared at the City Police Court yesterday, charged with unlawfully assaulting each other. The defendants were the two principals in the fight which occurred at Axedale on a Sunday afternoon recently, and  to which reference was made in these columns at the time. The defendants pleaded guilty,  and after Messrs. Kirby and Tatchell had addressed the bench on their behalf, the presiding magistrate, Mr. Patterson, said that, such conduct could not be tolerated, especially on a Sabbath. The defendants were each fined £10 or in default six weeks’ imprisonment. The fines were at once paid. The courthouse was crowded with a number of young men, friends of the two defendants, who watched the proceedings with considerable interest. Four other young men were charged with aiding and abetting Minter and O’Neill, but the cases were postponed for a week to enable the lawyers engaged in the defence to, if they can obtain authorities, show that it is not sufficient to ensure a conviction that only, the presence of a person at a fight need be proved. Mr. Patterson, yesterday, expresed the opinion that that was all that was accessary.

Destructive Fire Near Axedale 1901

From: Bendigo Advertiser, Monday 11 Feb 1901, page 4

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE NEAR AXEDALE.
A fire, which was destined to work considerable havoc, broke out on the banks of the Campaspe, to the south of Daley’s Hill, on Thursday afternoon. The fire originated close to Russell and White’s crushing battery, the cause of the outbreak being at present a mystery.

Owing to the high wind which prevailed, the fire swept with terrible rapidity in a southerly direction, and the small band of firefighters that assembled, found themselves quite unable to stay its progress. The half-mile which intervened between the starting point and the homestead of Mr. Thomas Burke was covered in the space of a few minutes and in spite of the efforts of those who were attempting to beat the fire out, the straw and hay stacks in the stack yard were all soon ablaze.

With practically no water supply available, it was found impossible; to do anything further to save the stacks, and the firefighters, who by this time had been augmented by a considerable number of men from Axedale and its vicinity, directed their efforts to saving the house and other buildings connected with the homestead. As the house stands close to the banks of the river it had practically to be guarded only on two sides, and the work of saving it was comparatively easy.

Some of the sheds and outbuildings were, however, destroyed. Shortly after passing Mr. Burke’s place the fire was got under control. In addition to having lost the whole of his year’s produce and several outbuildings, Mr. Burke had a quantity of fencing and grass destroyed. His loss is thus rendered a very serious one.

Axedale News 3 & 10 September 1878

From: Bendigo Advertiser, Tuesday 3 September 1878, page 2

AXEDALE.
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.)
Monday evening

The weather for the past few days has been splendid. On Wednesday I took a drive as far as McCormick’s saw mill, but found that it had been removed two or three miles further up the creek to where there is a better supply of timber, The timber cut is mostly for claims, though there is machinery for cutting all kinds of timber. Much difficulty is experienced in getting the timber to Sandhurst. The roads are heavy;in fact almost impassable. In coming home I encountered a terrific thunderstorm. The rain fell in torrents, and the lightning at times was very vivid. The weather is again splendid.

The church-going people of Axedale are determined not to keep their church door open. The gentleman who drew up the “code of laws ” respecting the management and conducting of the business—inviting the minister, etc. —has only put in an appearance once since.

The minister has been weeding out the sheep from the goats, and has so effectually done his work that very few remain to be converted. In consequence of this, he announced that if no more penitents could be found the doors would have to be closed.

 

From: Bendigo Advertiser, Tuesday 10 September 1878, page 3

AXEDALE
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT)
Monday, 9th September.

Last Monday was a red letter day in the history of the local board of advice. They visited all the schools in the district, and, I believe, found everything as it ought to be. They held their usual meeting on the same day.

The ploughing match is not likely to come off, unless the subscription lists are more liberally patronised, but we can hardly expect farmers at this season of the year to respond so liberally as they could in the harvest season. The match, if it should come off, is to be held in Mr. Conroy’s paddock, near the Perseverance Hotel.

Mrs. O’Grady died very suddenly the other day, at the Wild Duck Creek. She was universally respected, and has left a widower, with six young children, to mourn their loss. The funeral was the largest that ever entered Heathcote.

The Presbyterians have at last thrown off their lethargic habits, and are now not only convinced of their wrongdoing in keeping a nice little church closed, but on Sunday they actually had a minister officiating, and he is, I believe, to officiate every Sunday.

I am glad to notice that Mr. M. Boyle’s Fairy carried off the Sapling Stakes at the late Northern Coursing Meeting. Mr. Boyle’s dogs are very well bred, but he has been singularly unlucky with them. Mr. Tierney’s Flora did not show up at all, as expected.

The splendid weather of late has made a marked improvement in the crops and orchards. There is a magnificent show of blossom, and should the frost not prove very severe there will be a fine fruit harvest.
