ARCHDEACON M'ENCROE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 5 September 1868

ARCHDEACON M'ENCROE.   A Father gone! In quiet skies The final day died sweet and fair Which closed his consecrated eyes As with a prayer. Life left him like with a faultless psalm That mounts and mingles with the stars; And one more soul has reached the calm Past woes and wars.   So let them pass who live like him,   Serene apostles with the faith Which makes all Time a hallowed hymn   And softens death !   We lingerers here will miss him much And all the grave specific grace   That touched, as with supernal touch, His gentle face.   His ways were light because he loved His suffaring peers apart from sect; A silent power by trouble proved And made elect. In fiery times when Faith is faint, And Doubt has many words to say, We'll often think how well this saint Kept fear away. For, searching to to the core of creeds, He found the sign that made him strong; While we who sigh like seaside reeds, ...

JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 12 September 1868

JAPAN. From the Japan Herald and Gazotto we take the following items: A number of colonists from Australia, deceived by. the fanciful pictures drawn of foreign :prospects in Japan, have landed at Yokohama. The papers coiment strongly on the matter, and urge Aus tralians not to come up " however dull their prospects in the colony," for the certainty of disappointment in Japan. Stots'hasbi has been again offered the Shogoonato by the Mikado, and the forces under arms are ordered to return to head-quarters. Stots'bashi, however, refused. The young Prince Kamesahoro, aged six years, was then elected Shogoon, and Stots'bashi was then asked to take charge of him. This he also refused: but the Mikado is advised to insist upon it. Reports are current that Stots'bashi will become minister for foreign affairs; Chosio will remain generalissimo of the army; and Statsuma, com mander-in-ehief of the naval forces-a return to first principles. Aidzin is still in arms; but it is hoped that mat ters ...
