As this is the first responsible govern ment. called into existence since the New, Constitution was fully inaugurated, it forms an important epoch in the history of the colony; and as no change can take place, either politically'or'socially, without giving rise to consequences more or less important, so there ■ can be little- doubt that- the late change of ministers will lead to results '■which■■may be essentially beneficial or ra dically, injurious to the future of the colony.

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 20 March 1857

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. By the arrival of the Glenroy in Hob son's Bay on the 16th instant news from England to the 29th December has been received. The conference had re-assembled and was holding its sittings in Paris. By a telegraphic despatch from Mar seilles to the Times, it appears that on the 22nd November the Russian General Philipson retook Soudjak Kaleh, and drove out the Circassians after an obsti nate resistance. A Proclamation by Persia accepts the war declared against her by England. There had been great rejoicings on the occasion of the capture of Herat. They were, however, rendered dull by the death of the Prince, presumtive heir to the throne, six years of age. An attempt has been made to assassi nate the King of Naples by a soldier named Milano, who had been hanged for the crime. The Royal Mail steamship America en countered a dreadful hurricane about fif ty miles outside of Gape Clear on her voyage to New York, by which her figure head was carried away and the bulwark...
