THE ROMAN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 12 November 1864
THE ROMAN QUESTION. The periodical rumour of an arrangement of the Roman difficulty has been again revived Id a very precise form.

Meanwhile, Floienoe is to be constituted the capital of Italy, and the Par liament speedily convoked to ratify the treaty.

MATCHES OF THE WEEK. MELBOURNE v. RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 12 November 1864
MATCHES OF THE WEEK. MELBOURITE v. EICHMOND. This milch m resumed under more favour able circumstances than attended its com mencement. The comparatively fine weather which was experienced in the week preoeding last Saturday had a beneficial effect on the ground, and the turf was therefore in very good playing trim. The consequenoe was, that the batsmen were enabled to develop their skill far more effectively than in the preceding week; and the stand made, especially on the part of Richmond, was veiy creditable. Unfortu nately, the afternoon proved too abort to bring the game to a legitimate ending; and aa the engagements of the season would not permit of another Saturday afternoon being devoted to it—and to get the whole of the members of the team together on any other afternoon is almost impossible—it waa necessarily declared "drawn." Had it been played out, appear ances certainly point strongly in favour of the Richmond teem being victorious, as they only wanted 40 runs to win, a...

NEW ZEALAND. THE INTERCOLONIAL SHOW OF LIVE STOCK. (reox THE SOOTHE RE CROSS, OCT. 22.) Perhaps one of the very best features in connection with the New Zealand Exhibition is that of having, at the same time and place, an intercolonial show of lire stock.

At present it is very difficult to asoertain where fresh blood can be readily obtained, and frequently colonists are compelled-lo go to the- British breeders lot stock which might have been procured much sooner, and on easier terms, and with far less risk, in the colony, had information regarding the best flocks and herds in the colony been easily obtainable.
