No title [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 11 January 1870
To those who have had a considerable ac quaintance with the exigencies of political struggles, it must have been inexpressibly diverting to have noted the comments that were made upon the moderation of tone that had succeeded previous earnestness and rigour in some of the journals, as the late electoral conflict waxed and waned. Such commenta tors seemed igDorant of the fact that, as the elections gradually drew to a close, and the candidates for whose success either side was contending gained or lost the day, t ? e causes of antagonism became for the present diminished. While the rivals were before the constituencies, each, making out the best possible case for himself, and the friends of each backing him up with all their might, the rapid exchange of assertion and denial, accusation and refu tation, sarcasm and reparteej was natural and unavoidable. As the constituencies made their selections, and thus authoritatively decided the respective arguments, there ceased to be any necess...

INTERCOLONIAL AND NATIONAL INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 11 January 1870
BJTEBCOLONIAL AND NATIONAL INTERESTS. It will be in the recollection of our readers that | some time since it was proposed that a conference of 1 the representatives of the various Australasian colonies should be held in Sydney about November last. The original purpose of the confidence was to devise means for inducing the. United States to permit the admission, duty free, of wool, the pro duce of the Australasian colonies. ? - From that question naturally sprang considera tions of the disability under which the colonies . labour in respect to their want of power to enter into commercial treaties amongst themselves or with other countries. Other questions were also set down for discussion; amongst the most promi- j nent of -which may be mentioned those relating to I ocean mail services, telegraphic communication, the I investment of English trust moneys in colonial I securities, and the apprehension of offenders. . Sub- 1 sequent to the conference being fixed, a. change of I Governm...
