TENDENCIES OF MODERN SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 24 April 1857

;TENi)ENQiES:'p# MODERN ' SOGIETY : • iThe following' passage occurs in a notice of Le Tocqueville's " France before tlie Revolution," in the last number of the West mmister Review:—" Modern civi lised societies are essentially pa cific, loyers of quiet, lovers of pleasure, and lovers of money imaking. Material enjoyment is the end, and money is the means. A rich society will not risk the loss of its wealth. Tranquility is essential to its existence; and any power which arises in. the midst of disorder, and keeps order and quiet, will always be accep ted. The remark, it may be said, is not very profound; but it is true, and should be often repea ted, for people are apt to forget1 simple and wholesome truths. Political liberty is not an : easy thing to get, nor easy to keep; and when it has once been had and is lost, it is very hard to re cover. Despotism liyes by flat tering in, a,, people the yery vices which: have . helped it to power. It loves sensuality and looks fa vorably on i...

DEATH OF LADY BARKLY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 24 April 1857

DEATH OF LADY BARKLY. With very deep concern indeed we con vey the irournful intelligence to our rea ders that Lady Barkly expired at Toorak, near Melbourne, on Friday morning, 17th itist. about eleven o'clock. In reference to this melancholy event, we find the fol ■'lowing'*hi the Melbourne papers of Satur day, 18th inst.:— " It is with unfeigned sorrow that we announce the death of Lady Baiikly, and we are quite sure that no language of rer gret which we can use. will be deemed by the public insincere or exaggerated, nor can we possibly—either in the strength or fervour of our expressions—outrun the sympathy and commiseration which all classes of the community will feel, for that distinguished person on whom the will of Divine Providence has inflicted this unex pected and lamentable bereavement. Lady Barkly was only just recovering from her confinement; but we believe that her illness was occasioned solely by an ordina ry attackof inflammation, and yet so sudden and fatal was the ...

LITERATURE. Illustrated Journal of Australasia.— Slater: Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 24 April 1857

LITERATURE.

And however indifferent many of the per formances may be 111 a literary point of viewy they still afford evidence of some previous cultivation of the mind, and when a taste for improvement is once formed there is a reasonable ground for hope that it will make progress, provided it receive adequate encouragement, but it will be admitted to be very disheartening, after all the previous study and mental toil, to find the exertions unappreciated;; or that the result of the labor, is very much like " cas ting pearls before swine." ■ While therefore^ we have been obliged to say some apparehtly hard tilings of par pers that have appeared intire-J~oiirnal of Australasia our animadversions were con ceived in no unfriendly spirit, but rather with the'desire...

THE REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 24 April 1857

THE RE VEN't/E. The Revenue tables for the quarter ending 31st March, 1857, and tlie com parative tables for the year and quarters of 1856, have just been published. From these it appears that the financial , position of the colony is very satisfactory ; but this gratifying appearance, it is to be feared, is very much owing to the excessive impor tations of goods. The total receipts dur ing the quarter ending 31st March, 1857, amounted to .£763,859 5s. 5d.; but from this have to be deducted two sums paid in under the heads of special funds and spe cial accounts, and also a sum of £108 14s. 8d., which is headed suspense account.! These reduce the ordinary .reveuue to | £670,332 14s. 10. There is a nett in crease on the year ended 31st March, 1857, as compared with the corresponding quar ter of the last year ot £282,092 16s. in the ordinary revenue. The revenue for the quarter shews a falling off in the greater number of the sources of revenue, and in some the decrease is rather remar...
