Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 27th March, 1857. THE CHINESE DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 March 1857

■0 i p p s % a n tt a v t* t a it, : Fridays 27th March, 1857; THE CHINESEDIFFICULTY. ,. The latest news from- China reveals a fear ful picture of the barbarities inseparable from war. We deeply regret the distres sing position iii- which the European and American residents in t Macao, and es pecially in Hong ICong, find ■ themselves placed by what appeared the rash conduct of Commodore Seymour in precipitating .hostilities. We shall, be agreeably mista ken- if ,Commodoro.

They have already resorted to assassination and poison, and kidnapping-; and to such a state of terror have the in habitants of Hong Kong been reduced, 'that the Friend of China remarks—"We cannot sleep o'ni...

THE SILK WORM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 March 1857

THE SILK WORM; ■ We directed the attention of our readers, on a late occasion, to the necessity which we anticipate will exist in'tlie: colony a few j years hence for those engaged in the culti-: vation of the land, turning their attention to other productions than those to which > they have been hitherto almost exclusively I confined. We then alluded to the intro duction into the colony of the productions of India and China; and in reference to the article of silk, one of those productions, I we believe the mulberry tree on which the | Bilk worms principally, if not wholly feed icould be.readily extended over the greater' ,part of Australia, and would thrive remark- j ably well. I We find'the .'following valuable sugges tion, having relation to this subject, in a .reoent. number of the Sydney Morning j Herald, and we consider it well deserving I -of serious thought, and afterward of that( .attention,which its importance may warrant. " Dear Sir,—Mr. informed me that some years ag...

THE PUBLIC LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 March 1857

THE PUBLIC LANDS. {Front the Boston Travellers) The President's Message discloses the enormous extent, to which speculation in the public lands has been carried for a year past. In round numbers the quantity sold is. stated at 9,200,000 acres, and the land •warrants issued have been for 30,300,000 acres, making in the whole 39,500,000 acres. Most of the warrants find their way into the hands of speculators, and. are finally sold at more than double the price of those sold by the Government. The largest amount ever disposed of in any former year was in the great paper money expansion of 1836 The sales that year reached nearly 21,000,000 acres, while tliis year they have gone up to nearly double that amount. It is much to be re gretted- that a more healthful and prudent system of selling the public lands is not. adopted, so that they might be kept open, for many years to come for the exclusive' benefit of actual settlers; From the man ner in which the disposal of them has been pushed ...

LITERATURE. Illustrated Journal of Australasia.—Slater: Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 27 March 1857

LITERATURE. Illustrated Journal' of A ustralasia!— Slater: Melbourne. The getting-up of the .March number of this periodical is quite equal to that of any of its predecessors, and that tliexontents are fully up to the averasre. The number opens with a paper on " The Cabbage Blight," in which the: natural history of the insects, which have commit ted so much destruction in the gardens, is given in a popular manner, and is illustra. ted with a very neat wood engraving of insects in their various stages of existence. There are some valuable hints as to the management of plants when under the at tack of the fly, and also sug-gestions respec ting its extirpation. We believe that in almost all cases in which remedial measures have been resorted to during the past sum mer they have proved inefficatious; and therefore we incline to the reprobated opinion, that when the blight has taken its course it will die out and not before* Indeed, the expedients recommended, by. the writer of the artic...

FILIAL AFFECTION: AN AMERICAN TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 3 April 1857

FILIAL AFFECTION: AN AMERICAN TALE. "Why are you so parsimonious, Henry ? " said Mr. Dartmoor, to one of his clerks, as he entered the counting-house, one morning. " I really must say, your dress is scarcely good to appear in, i considering the important situa-: tion you hold in this establish-; ment, which, you'know, is the 'first in Philadelphia." j Henry's face was suffused withi a deep "blush, and a! tear trembled, on his manly cheek; " Did I not know that your; salary was sufficient to provide® jmore genteel habiliments," con-' tinuedMr. D , "Iwould increase it." " My salary is sufficient, amply .sufficient, Sir," replied Henry,' ;with a voice choked in that proud; independence of feeling which poverty had not been able to di vest him of. His employer no ticed the agitation, and immedi ately changed the subject. Mr. D. was a man of immense wealth and benevolence; he was a widower, and had but one child, a daughter, who was the pride of his declining years. She was not beautiful...

Who can estimate the.sa inaction it would now afford the literary.world tq have preserved the ashes of .Miltbii oii j Slialcspere ? or who can guess the care and veneration with which the French would regard the ashes of Napoleon, or with what veneration Americans would guard the remains of Washiug ton..? ...
