    THE MOUNT PROSPECT HOTEL, STORE, AND BUTCHERY,
    Groceries, Clothing, Horses, Waggon, Harness, &c, &c.
    ROBERT MATHER has been instructed by the owner, Mr Blampied (who is leaving the colony), to sell by auction, on the above-named date, on the premises, all that Valuable Property consisting of
    Six acres of rich Agricultural Land, on which is erected the well-known Mount Prospect Hotel, Store, and Butchery, all doing a most lucrative business.
    THE LAND
    Is of the most fertile description, thoroughly cleared and fenced.
    THE HOTEL
    Is doing a large and regular trade, and is at present let at a high rental. It is a commodious building, containing eight rooms, large bar, and all the necessary fittings.
    THE STORE AND BUTCHERY
    Are attached, and are, without doubt, from their fortunate accident of position, one of the best up-country establishments in the colony. The former is well known as the "Frenchman's" store, and has been in existence for many years. All the premises are insured.
    THE STOCK Consists of
    19 chests of tea, -1/4, 1/2 and whole chests
    6 casks currants, each 300 lbs 4 cases raisins
    19 bags Mauritius sugar
    10 do Patna rice
    4 cases oilman's stores
    10 boxes sperm candles
    6 dozen colonial assorted jams
    250 lbs tobacco (all sorts) 100 lbs coffee
    2 dozen tins red herrings
    Lump sugar, cheese, flour, salt soap, oats, - bran, and a quantity of provisions and
    groceries too numerous to mention.

    Prince and Fanny, both young and thoroughly staunch
    Also,
    An American waggon, with two sets of harness. The auctioneer, in calling attention to this sale, considers it needless to expatiate on the value of this well-known and long-established property. It is most happily situated in the centre of the rich agricultural district of Bullarook, on the main line of road from Creswick to Daylesford, being nine miles from the former town and seven from the latter, and in close proximity to the Rocky Lead, Blanket Flat, and Deep Creek diggings.
    Terms:-For freehold property, one-half cash, one quarter in three months, the remainder in twelve months, bearing bank interest.
    Sale to commence at twelve o'clock sharp.

    INSOLVENT COURT
    Wednesday, May 7
    [Befors his Honour Judge Noel]
    RE AUGUSTE BLAMPIED.
    An examination sitting was held in the estate of Auguste Blampied, of Mount Prospect, near Daylesford, publican, butcher, and storekeeper; Mr. Farmer appearing for the trustee.
    The estate had been transferred from the Castlemaine Court to this court. The in solvent, who filed his schedule on the 5th April, was examined, and said that in September last he obtained an extension of time from his creditors to pay their debts in. He then showed them a statement in which his debts appeared at something like 700, and his assets were estimated as worth 400 in stock-in-trade, 600 or 700 in good and bad debts, 250 in land, and 100 in sundries. Within the month before insolvency he sold a buggy to his brother at Pleasant Creek. It was sold on the 20th or 21st March, together with a horse and harness, for 35. He had not kept a cash-book lately, but kept a ledger, day-book, and cheque-book. His books were stolen about the 1st or 2nd April. The books were left in the store while he went to the bar to serve customers. He stayed in the bar some time, and then went to bed, and left the door of the store open. On the next morning he found the books had been taken away. Had never seen the books since. Would swear he never said to Davey, the trustee's agent, that the books had been burnt Did not point out to one Paterson a shed or building, and tell him that the books were burnt in that building. He admitted that in September last he represented his estate at a good bit more than it was worth, but said the creditors were hard, and he thought that if the season turned out good he would get over his difficulties. Some time last month he conveyed the land which he had owned to his brother. His brother had lent him 100 in May, 1872, and on the 18th March last 150 more. The hotel, store, and cottage were built on the land. Emile Blampied, brother of the insolvent, was also examined, he said his brother conveyed the land and property to him on the 18th March for 250, which he had paid to the insolvent, namely, 100 in May, 1872, and 150 on the 18th March. The money was all paid in bank notes. The sitting was adjourned to the 26th May.

    A. Blampied, of Mount Prospect, was charged with selling inferior brandy labelled as Hennessy's, and also with selling brandy labelled as bottled by Jas. Service and Co. Mr. Anglin, revenue inspector, stated that when he seized the brandy in question he found a cask of Prunier's brandy on the preimises, which the defendant stated cost 19s, 6d per gallon. Prunier's brandy was inferior to either Henneasy's or Service's. The defendant had drawn a fine line across the name Hennessy on the one label, and across that of Jas. Service and Co. on the other, but the line could not be observed at any distance away. There was a small label on the back of each bottle inscribed " Bottled by A. Blampied." Mansfield Bruce deposed that the liquor seized was inferior brandy, considerably under proof. It was genuine Prunier's brandy. Fined 2 on each charge of illegally using labels, and 10s. on each charge of selling, with 1 19s. 8d. costs in one case, and 4 15s. 8d. in the other.

    DAYLESFORD, WEDNESDAY EVENING.
    An inquest was held this afternoon, before Mr. C. H. Nicolson, P.M., on the body of Auguste Blampied, a publican at Mount Prospect, who died early yesterday morning from injuries received in a quarrel in his hotel on Sunday evening. Two lads, named George and John Poole, were present in custody, charged with causing the death of the deceased. The evidence taken showed that several persons were drinking in deceased's hotel on Sunday evening. One of the prisoners accused the deceased of being double-faced. Deceased said he would not submit to such an accusation, and aimed a blow at one of the prisoners with a poker.
    The prisoner grappled with the deceased, and took the poker from him, when he seized a chair and struck the prisoner with it, breaking the chair over him. A general quarrel then ensued. The medical evidence showed that the deceased's death was caused through injuries to the bowels, a large lump on the groin, and internal bruises.
    One of the prisoners had a severe cut over one eye, inflicted during the quarrel. Both
    the prisoners were found guilty of manslaughter, and committed for trial at the Sandhurst Court of Assizes. Bail was accepted in two sureties of 50 each. The deceased was a Frenchman, aged 55, and leaves a wife and large family.

    DEATH FROM VOLENCE:
    DAYLESFORD, Tuesday.
    A sad tragedy has just bean enacted at Mount Prospect, about eight miles from Daylesford, on the Creswiok road. It appears that on Sunday night, two youths named Pool, aged about sixteen and eighteen respectively, were passing the evening at an hotel kept by Mr. Augusta E. Blampied. The three were playing cards, when a dispute arose, and the two youths turned on Blampied, knocked him down on the floor, and so savagely kicked him that he died from internal rupture at 5 o'clock this morning. On Sunday night a messenger was sent to Creswick for a doctor, and subsequently to Kingston for the police. Since the death of Blampied the youths have been arrested pending the result of the inquest. They are residents of Mount Prospect, and have several relatives in the neighbourhood and in Daylesford, Blampied was a Frenchman, about fifty years of age, and though of an excitable temperament, was generally respected. He conducted a large business store, hotel, and post office-and is reputed to have been pretty well off. A widow and five young children are left. The brother of the deceased is a partner in the well-known vineyard of Trouette and Blampied, Great Western, having been one of the earliest settlers at Mount Prospect, and in buisness there for twenty-five years. The melancholy affair has caused, considerable excitement. "Telegraph."

    An inquest into the death of Blampied began today at Clehesy's Hotel, Daylesford. The only evidence taken was that of Mrs. Blampied and Drs. Lindsay and Stevenson. Mrs. Blampied swore that the two young men Poole were quarrelling with the deceased in the bar of the hotel on Sunday night. Shortly afterwards the deceased, on going to bed, complained that he had been kicked in the right groin by the elder of the two youths. The evidence of the medical gentlemen was to the effect that death had been caused by external injury. In answer to the arresting Constable Could, they said that death might have arisen from a kick. The inquiry has been adjourned.
