TO TIrO EDITOL OF TilM I11 IA INIDEIENDENT., Sie,- In your issue of theo. 15th linst., there is a long: letter ?giiled "Road Over scor," in which the owiriter, who wotild more appr;olriatoly-.h;avao ncl l hiniselt'f '"_iob blers,' attempts to thi-ti"e authorship of a previous letter signed%" Looker oin upoun le ; for although he does -not mentionimy name, the allusions to 'my residence, &c., make it; evident against whom his venom is dircated. As I do not believe that tany, local overseer wrote the letter, [ do not in tend to take any notice of it furthher than to assure the,," ltad .Overseer" that I never saw the letter signed "Looker on;" and that so fair as it appears to have found fault with the work done by them oi the roads, I entirely disagree with it; and also with regard to the pelition for coimpensa tion, so far ront fhiunking that the over seers are not entitled to sonme allowance for the loss or outfit, &c., I believe I was the first to suggest to more tl...
FIRST TIME UNDER FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 March 1864
FIRST, TIME UNDER FIRE. (From thle New York Ledger.) About a foitdight after our thus fairly joining the regiment, the squadron to which I belonged was called in from picquet, and marched rapidly to where the regiment wad engaged with the enemny. As we drew near, the firing became sharper and -sharper, and suddenly the captaiu clommanding formed us in line, and carried us forward on trot. The ra pidity of the movement, the jingling of the aecoitrements, the pressure of the horses and men on each side of ,me, caused a sensationl of excitement rather unplea. sant than otherwise, and I began to feel very brave and warlike. " What is it ?" asked.I of:the old soldier beside me. "Are we going to charge thein right off?" I shall never forget the look of contemptu ous wonder with which be looked at me as he replied: "I've been jest two years in this hero regiment, and you're the first man I ever met who thought lie was going a-charging without drawing sabres. We're going 'to be shot at youn...

TULLADULLTA. (FROM OUR COlUREsPoo\DErTe.) IRotDs AtD RJoAD Ov?Rnsrs?s.-hIving no particular news, I take "the opportunity to tell 'your correspondent " Lootker-on" and thsos who reply to him that they are wrong. The sweeping charges of idlcnoeso, ' not fraud upon the public, are not truie, as my obscrvation goes; neither is the practice any the more just for being comn non of anonymous attacks upon indivi dunls. I heard nuch about tho inellcironey of some of the road parties, but was silent froml want of observation ; but certainly the one I did observe (Mr. Campbell) a total stranger to me, appeared a diligent, faithfil, and conscientous ptublic servant, to whom the letter is it positive injustice; but in the road to Shoalhaven I was cer tainly amused at the works. Little bits of munfrequented road, which lihad not been very blad, wore drained, ýe., ias tllough the object wore to show what they could do if disposed : li fact, parts of the road looked like a:tailor's pattern card, w...

AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 March 1864
AMLERICAN INSTITUTIONS. If ain Englishman dwelling in America, weore to admit once for all that thie Ameli cans really knew nothing about England, and were to commence the study of Americani character, and endeavour to trace the working of their political system, he would find that he himself had been as ignorant of Anmerica as the Amerihans were of England; that he had to uproot his preojdices, unlearn his politics, dis card his preconceived ideas, and study this hoew and singular people as lie woeld study a new language. He would find, as he made a little progress in his task, that everything in the character of American institutions which he had been accustomed to admire was a proved evil; that the absence of an aristocracy of high rank and ancient lineage was supplied by a" codfish aristocracy," a" shoddy aristocracy," and an aristocracy of money; that if a Stateo Church were an evil,.a Ohurch uncon nected with the State, of which the preachers pandered to the prejudices and the...

AMERICAN AND ENGLISH ARTILLERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 March 1864
AM.ERICAIN AND ENGIS- ARI IL.TL LERY. (From tto Saturdoay Reviewsi.) Most people profess and feel a willing ness. to learn from any quarter an art which they are esioecially anxious to ac quire, and in which they do not even imagine themselves to have reached per fcetion. It would be singular, theroefore, if there were any truth in the accusation recently levelle'd against this country of a stupid blindness to all that' the Ameri cans are doing in the, construction of monster guns and what are supposed to be invulnerriable ships. There has been an almost morbid tendency to extol every frigate or Monitor produced in France or America, and to magnify the performances of guns which hsive shown no superiority over our own, except .what they have de rived from the fact of having been used in terrific earnest. More than on'oc'our whole system of attack and defence hadS been all but revolutionized on the strength of some sensation exploit of a Yankee Monitor, or a Confederate gun.s If, the...
THE PREMIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 March 1864
THiE PRILEIMEi. Mr. James Martin, Q.O., the man who is said to have shown so much " tact" since he undertook to govern the countryj, has boon greatly chop-fallen since thoe rejection of the tariff. He was so confident of carrying the measure through tihe Council' that he laughed to utter scorn all those who hinted a doubt of its passing. Even when the bill had beon amended, and the temper of the honor able nominess -had been manifested, Mr. Martin was still incredulous, and assorted that the Council dare not throw.out the tariff; you may therefore guess his sur prise and his indignation when they did reject it by 15 to 5. It was a frightful blow to his self-conceit, and inasmuch as he had been before arrogant and confident, so now lie was humble and doubtful. I wish to point out in writing this, what little claim Mr. Martin has to being coln sidered a man of tact. How has he shown tact ? Well, by bribisng, wheedling, and intimidating members, lie managed to secure a majority for the...
A SOLDIER OF FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 March 1864
A SOBLDIEBOF FORTUN2E. -Ever since I landed in America I liad leard of the exploits of anu Englishman called Colonel St. Ledger Grenfell, who is now Inspeector-General of Cavalry to 13ragg's army. This afternoon I made his acqiuaintance, and I consider him one of the most extraordinary characters I over met.. Although he is a miember of a well-known English funmily, lie seems to hove devoted his whole lifo to the ex citing career of a soldier of fortune. He told me that in early life lie had served three years in a iirech la sncer regimoent, and had risen from a private to be a sous ieuitenant; Ho afterwards became a sort consular agent under old Mir.
