ISIRIT OP TIE PRESS.-PEAOE OR WAR. (From the Yiesr.) TirE question, divested of tihe obscuring cir cumstanceos which months of discussion and passionato rccriminatiou have thrown round it, is simply this:-Is England bound by positivo stipulations, or morally, or in honour, to go to war with Prussia and Austria for tlhe purpose of driving theoir troops from Schloswig, or from that part of it which lies north of the line of the Schloi, or from that part of it which wo may con ceive that an arbitrator would have awarded to Denmark, if such a mode of settling th11 dispute had boon adopted ? In thus putting the question we dismiss, as unnoccossary to bo discussed, the consideration whether the severance of Schloswig and Holsloin, or any part of them, fromn Denmark would be so injurious to oursolves that we ought to enter into a continental war to avert it, for no reasonable man can imangino that it will make the smallest diffloronco to England, or to any state in Europe, ifSclhloswig bo ...

A Tuinnumi, calhmity-ono from which th MIacleay will not recover for some time, if it recovers from it at all-visited the district last week. The loss of property is beyond calculation.

The river commoenced to rise on Monday, the 8th instant, and on Monday night and Tuesday it rose with fearful rapidity.

SYDNEY SUMMARY. THURSDAY afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 27 August 1864

SYDNEY SUMIIIAIRY. T?runszA" afternoon. Tfun long-talked of and anxiously expected Provin cial Councils Bill, was published in yesterday's Empire. It has boon over and over again trium phantly declared that the ministry would have ma tured no measure for extricating us fromn our flnan cial difliculties; and so fitr, I foar, the prognostica tions are right. DBut this hill-which we wore at first led to suppose would bo a more extension of the municipal system-would, if passed, most effectually extricato theo central government from their diffi culties, though it would have a most unmistakoable tendency to increase the difficulties and the burdens of the country. Soeeing that our present parliament has nothing to do with questions of peace or of war, and nothing to do with makling treaties with foreign powers, it is hard to say what functions would be loeft it if this bill should pass. There is little chance of such a calamity though; for tihe bill must surely be too preposterous for a...

A BILL TO ESTABLISH PROVINCIAL COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 27 August 1864

A BILL TO ESTABLISH PROVINCIAL COUNCILS. (From th?e Empire.) [Tue following is the bill prepared by the govern ment for dividing the colony into provinces. Copies of it have, we believe, been in circulation among the friends of the ministry for some timo past. The importance of the measure, and the magnitude of the changes which it proposes to effect, will no doubt be doomed suflicient to excuse the government for ppblishing it proevious to laying it beforo parlia ment. The'expression of publio opinion which will now be oeicited through the press, will probably do cide the fate of the bill.] Bo it enacted by the Queen's IMost Excellent Majesty by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Couricll and Legislative Assembly of Now South Wales in Parliament assembled and by the authority of the gsame as f.llows : Interpretation. 1.

SIGNS OF PROGRESS. (Fron the CMaltland Mercury.) Two announcements of moro than ordinary interest have jest been made by the Sydney papers. Tho one is that casting operations have booeen successfully begun at the Fitzroy Iron-works; the other is that land has been purchased for the use of the Austra-' lian Paper Company, that the buildings necessary to tihe manuficturo are about to be erected, and that an order has alroady boon sent to England for the no coasary machinery. This looks litke business; and we trust that no unforeseen hindraneo will 'arise to diminish the success which the one company has bo gun to realiso, or to interfere with the succossfal com plotion of those designs which the other company has now taken the first practical steps to accomplish.

Thoso statistics wero taken from a parlint montary return issued in the year 1859. Since that time, of course, a considorablo increase in the quantity of crown land hold under.pastoral lease has tbken place. This, howover, serves merely to strengthen our uriumeno t. oWe have no means of showlug the exact state of afhisirsl in this matter at the ipresont moment, except as regards bono portion of Sthe colony, that of Rivoriiu.

We are amazed at tie first glance with the elaborate character of tihe provisions for the orec tion of thlse councils. Wcro the objects of the bill to call into existence a now constitution for the wholo colony, it could hardly be more minute in its regulations. It is evident that the councils proposed are framed on the model of the Legislative Asnombly, for we find that its doliberations and proceedings are surrounded with the sameno time-honoured formuhn. Esch council is to have its clairman, its quorum, its standing rules and orders, its oxecultivo, and its trea suroer; and is to he decorated with as much pomp and formality as if it were the sourco of law for a kingdom instead of a province.
