SA TURr.DA; oCTro.?S 31st, 18ss. As we premised, his Excelleii-y the Gov. ernor refused the application of the late Premier to dissolve Parliament, and his "Ministry had perforce to resign for others to take their place. The stand taken by Mr RtGAIatwith reference to Mr DUNCAN's dismissal was the apparent cause of their overthrow; but itis. luite Intent to all that the late Treasurer and his colleagues were blamoable for the dismissal ?o Mr SDuNOCN, and so far we cannot but see that Mr'- PAREs wVias justifiable in withdi'awing from the MIinistry if. his principles: did not agree with othose 'of the rest of the Cabinet. We have some hesitation, how 'ever, in believing that the late fight for r" subordin'atlon in the Civil Service was the real c-ause of the resignation of. the. Milm. istry. That occurrence 'no doubt gave effect to the resignation ; lt itl has been; seen for a long time: by those well versed .in politics that a Ministry so constituted could not last for a very' long pe...
POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 31 October 1868
POLITrIOAL. ...f (From the, Empir. , Pinn.ars there, was some disappointment yesterday, amongst the numbers of personis who arattended at _the . Assembly, that .no definite announcemefit 'was made respecting the formationi of a new iniistry; but' the change that is about to :take place' will be 'none the less likely to give satisfaction'if it is .the -result, of mature reflection.- ' In political :unions, as:.in, others, people may sometimes '.' marry: in haste: and repent at leisure.". Of, course the many .rumours, somo ..of thom of, a most preposterous character, -which .were current. in the city yesterday, will have met with small regard from judicious persons. A ministerial crisis is not altogether a novelty to us, young, as we are in our experience of responsible government, 'and it will be very well remem bered that rumoursq;uite as improbable have been freely circulated on similar occa sions., Yetit is not unlikely'. that reports of the nature, alluded to may have set many pe...
THE CROWN LAW OFFICERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 31 October 1868
TH~E Z ROWN LAW OFFICERS: .... "(Froia ,i o IEmpire.) TriM most casual observers' of our politi~al affairs cannot have failed to notice that every ministerial crisis 'has beeon complicated by the' difficulty of ; securing ;the services of crown law officers.: That." close corpora= tion," as it has been called, thebar, :has fre quently been:master, of the situation when a ministerial resignation .occurred, and has driven.a new cabinet to extremity by failing' to supply that prbfessional legal element which seems to be considered so indispen sable. We are much inclined to think"that, on mature refledtion,' it would be found that this presumed" necessity 'of- having - an attodrney-general and a solicitor-general 'as' responsible ministers would be found to be an error. There are reasons :for this prac tice in England which do not apply to, Aus-, tralia, and;:, on 'the other hand, there are objections ' to: such' a practice :hero ' which' would not 'apply 'in 'England.

THE WAR IN PARAGUAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868
THE WAR IN PARAGUAY. The -Brazilians have not yet conquered the little state of Paraguay, which under the Dictator Lopez has so long held them at bay. Yet they have obtained a success, which at the first was announced as a great victory. The fortress of Humaita, which has resisted all their assaults, has at length fallen into their hands. It-was attacked on the 16th June, by General Osorio, with ten thousand men; but under the terrible fire of the Paraguayans,-he was compelled to retreat. But Humaita, being exposed to the iron clads on the river, Lopez has secretly erected new works along the Tobicuary, some fifty or sixty miles inland; and to these he has now withdrawn, prepared to hold them with the same desperate tenacity. Meanwhile the Argentine confederation is tiring of the struggle, and seems disposed to leave the Brazilians to finish it.

AMERICAN AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868
AMERICAN AFFAIRS. Mr. Reverdy Johnson, the newly appointed minister of the United States, has been visiting.Mr. Disraeli, at Hughenden Manor. He has also been entertained at the Outlers' Feast at Sheffield; and his conciliatory words spoken on that occasion have been accepted as an omen of good relations. Not equally judicious was Mr. Roebuck, who, unableuto restrain the "tear 'em " nature, launched into strong language against the `corruptions of America, and described, that country as a receptacle of "a tide of cor ruption ; a feculent torrent of almost all the vice and turbulence of Europe." He depicted " the wild Irishman, the fiery Frenchman, the assassinating Italian, and .the dumb founded Spaniard, all going out in one mass, and wishing to fulfil' their expectations in the mind of America. And this," exclaimed Mi*. Roebuck, "we are free from." Nothing. "could have been in worse taste. Mr. John son, a day. or two after, in thanking the mayor and corporation for an address'pre ...
