SINKING SHIPS. ; 1 have 'not heard of any vessel being put on the stocks to replace the Vanguard; but the revelations tliat are being made about machines for blowing up ships tend to discourage people from spending hundreds'of thousands of pounds upon what a single miscreant like Thomas, of Bremer-haven. notoriety, can explode with a bottle of dynamite. The other day, the Agent General for New Zealand had to write and con tradict the report that an emigrant ship had ar rived out with twenty tons of powder on board. But now, it appears, a single "coal" will do it. Irregular Iron or steel castings are made three eights of an in inch thick, except at the core. The models are "taken from pieces of coal picked at random from a heap, and not so large as to require trimming by the fireman before being shovelled into the furnace. The interior is smoothed to reduce the risk of explosion while introducing the charge. The shell being filled and closed with a brass plug, it is dipped fcy means ...

EXHALATIONS FROM MY PIPE. [By Pan.] By all means, let the itinerant teaching of the children of our bash residents have a trial—at least, till some better plan be devised; and for this rea son: it is the aim of our Legislature to establish such a system of education that none more perfect shall exist anywhere—at least, we are led to believe .that such is their aim, andwebope yet to see they will attain' that end, because we have been in formed that to the completeness of onr system of education we are indebted for that absence of crime which causes us to be looked up to as a pattern colony. This was the reason given by our Mac the other day at that meeting in Glasgow, so there can not be a donbt about it.

THE BEECHER SCANDAL—AS TOUNDING STATEMENT. The statement of Mr. Bowen, Beecher's confidential friend, has at length been laid before the Plymouth Church and is of an as tounding character. It concludes thus :—" I will now hasten frankly to tell you what are my conclusions in regard to the character of the pastor of the Plymouth Church. I hare known Sir. Beecher quite intimately since the ilay of his arrival in Brooklyn. I have been associated with him socially and pri vately, in the Church and in family and busi ness matters, and in religious matters. I have heard attentively, but with profound grief, what has been said to me confidentially against him. I have felt my heart stirred to its depths for dear friends, who years be fore the present scandal was published sorrow fully begged my counsel, as they assured me that their pastor and mine had craftily be trayed the sanctity of their homes, the very charge long after presented tome by Theodore Tilton in regard to his own home.

MACALISTER AT[?] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 25 March 1876

A gentleman, an old Queenslander, writes from Glasgow, under date January 20, to a friend resident in Brisbane, as follows: -- I think the only topic that can be of much interest to you will be the Glasgow banquet to your distinguished Pemier, the Hon. Arthur Macalister. By the San Francisco mail I sent you a Herald containing a pretty full report of the affair, which was one of the most brilliant and jolliest little 'spreads' that Glasgow has had for some time. It was indeed 'a great success,' and in honouring your Premier as one of her sons, she felt that she honoured herself. Of course such an im- portant affair would not have gone off with- out me, so I was there. To me it was like a night in Brisbane "again, and has so warmed up my old Queendand sympathies, and aroused my love for the land of so many happy memo- ries, that I'm quite sure the feeling of con- tentment with old country life, which I have been so anxiously trying for nearly four years to woo to my bosom, is gone fo...
