THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

THE WEATHER. I must not dismiss home topics without a reference to the weather. The season will be exceptional to the end. After the long drought of which I wrote to you, we were favoured with a succession of beautiful rains.. For a day or two the winds blew furiously; on the southern coast, and es pecially on the north-west, off the Mersey, there were many most disastrous wrecks,. with great loss of life. But for nearly a fortnight, when these gales had moderated, the showers fell gently at refreshing inter vals, and were followed byna rapid revival of vegetation, and a growth marvellous for this country. Now it is again dry. For more than a week we have had the sky clear; some days cooler, but some still very hot. On Monday, this week, the thermo meter registered 89 deg. in some places-a heat unexampled in the month of Septem ber. Over London one has rarely seen so magnificent a canopy of blue, and the fine weather in our streets has been most peculi arly seasonable, yet the cabme...

RECENT DEATHS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

RECENT DEATHS. Amongst recent deaths must be-mentioned that of Mr. Douglas Cooke, tho editor. of the Saturday Review, a man unknown, beyond a select circle; but in his calling preeeminently able. It was his principle, at -whatever cost, to take always the best article that camne to hand on any topic, and in this lay in good part the secret of the success of-that journal. Another journalist, though of an irregular order, Mr. Matthew James Higgins, better known as Jacob Omnium, has been taken away from us. His newspaper letters on military and social reforms often attracted a large share of atten tion, and to some of our best magazines lo was a constant 'contributor. He was in the old Charter-house days, thobe.ifr of that famous broken nose which-the great novelist .Thaclceray. carried with-him to his grave. The death of Dr. Jeune, the Bishop of Peterborough, will be lamented by many Oxford men -who knew him when head of Pembroke College, as well as by the whole church.- In the sudden...

AGRARIAN OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

AGRARIAN. OUTRAGE. Some of the wrongs of Ireland rest upon the landlords' shoulders, a fact of which we have recently had and nd tragio illustra tion. A Mr. Scully,'.a large :landed pro prietor in Tipperary, having newly come into possession, attempted to impose some tyran nicat. restrictions upon his tenantry, and, upon their resisting, proceeded to evict them. flaving obtained the assistance of the police he went to serve the necessary-notices, and \vis fired upon from a barn. -In the con flict which ensued-a kind of civil strife rather than a murderous outrage - two of his companions, were -shot dead, and others wounded, while he himself was hit hard in the neck.- So oppressive and illegal were the regulations lie was endea_ vouring to enforce, that both the coroner's jury and the magistrates have since united to condemn his conduct in the strongest terms.

JUVENILE DEPRAVITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

JUVENILE DEPRAVITY. The first private execution in London took place this week at Newgate, under the new act. A lad of eighteen was- hanged for an atrocious murder, committed upon an elderly woman, the keeper, of an eating-house, in whose service he lived. The first.execution which took place at Maidstone was for a murder by a youth of only nineteen. We have heard much of late of boy literature, and its sensational debasing. character, and there is ample proof that it is the parent of much crime. Within the last few days a case of , forgery was iinvestigated at the Mansion-house, in which a ..boy of only fourteen-was shown to have forged a cheque for £66, which was cashed through the agency of a confederate one year younger than himself.

PEACE OR WAR? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

PEAOE OR WAR P There has been, much agitation in Paris, and on the Bourse almost a panio. It was whispered that this week the Emperor would make a warlike: declaration at Chalons. Pacifio protestations we have had in abun dance from the Emperor and great state officials; but the more of these, the more suspicion seems to grow. On every hand there are indications of a susceptible state of public feeling that in itself is full of danger. Every rumour is caught up and canvassed; every movement is scrutinised and suspected: explanations are given ; the merest gossip even an anecdote about the Prince Imperial -gets prominent notice,.and perhaps official denial. The great success of the French loan, which M.:Magne points to with pride, as thirty-four times the amount demanded, gives no confidence;' but is spoken' of as evidence, of 'the power lying dormant in France.> One, week the idea gets abroad that the Emperor is intriguing at Brussels and the Hague, and that Belgium is to be coax...

THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION. Speculations of another kind havo. been entertained at the meeting of the British Association, which gathered in great force ,this year, at Norwich, whither also came many savants from the continent to a congress . on prehistoric arcliiology. Dr. Hooker, as president, delivered- an: address, powerful and sensible, but somewhat lacking in unity, the distinguishing-feature in which was his ardent advocacy, of the Darwinian theory. For the various sections papers were pro sented, which covered a wide field of social aes well as scientific inquiry. Amongst them was one by a lady, Miss- Becher, on the Supposed-Differences in the Minds of the Two Sexes of Man, whioh elicited much lively discussion. Its chief aim was to advocate, another system of education' foir women, and this want,' I may now report, - is recognised by the University of -London, which has just admitted ladies to its exami niation, and published lists of subjects for them similar to those- propos...

THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

THE QUEEN. .There has been an unusual flitting to and fro this month of European kings and princes seeking change and recreation in the' fashion of ordinary mortals. Our own Queen returns from Switzerland to-day, and reached Paris. yesterday in safety. Her sojourn among the mountains appears to have been a time of uninterrupted enjoy ment. A slight sensation of uneasiness was occasioned by a report which crept into a: French paper, that a Fenian had been cap tured near the Royal residence, intent on assassination. Then came an explanation that an eccentric Englishman, a madman in. fact, .had sought to force admission into the Royal presence, for the mere sake of being face to face with majesty. Finally, there appeared a brief official announcement, de Dying that the Queen had experienced any inconvenience whatever during . her visit. In Lucerne, as everywhere else, her Majesty has made a most favourable impression by her simple appearance and pleasant' manners. Several anecdotes hav...

In Birmingham alone no fewer than five hundred and fifty-seven female ratepayers have sent in their claims, while as many as eighteen ladies have claimed to be placed on the county register in North Warwickshire. The question -thus raised will be warmly contested in the, registration courts, and its legal aspect fully shown.

THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

THE FUTURE. The next two months will; witness. a vigorous agitation. Already each: party begins to reckon its possible gains or losses. Throughout the country canvassers are busy. Sanguine spirits at the clubs estimate the liberal majority at more than a hundred; but the Tories have a good cry, of the fine. old English Tadpole and Taper sort, and. will bring their whole strength into the field. The ballot has a conspicuous placed in election addresses, though many thought ful liberals are opposed to it. Mr. Bright, in his brief appeal to the electors of Birming ham, regards the ballot as of the. first im portance, as diminishing expense, intimida tion, and tumult. He advocates also a further re-distribution of seats, in order to secure to the large populations their share of power, and would restore compounding; he affirms that minority voting was intended to deprive the great cities of their proper weight in the constitutional scale; and declares that in disestablishing the Irish c...

Archbishop Trench has delivered a charge which will not add to his reputa tion; but the weakness of his arguments seems likely rather to injure thani strengthen the cause he defends. The Archbishop of Armagh has followed; but places the issue upon broader grounds, asserting that the Irish church is but a part of the national church of the United Kingdom, and as such the church of the majority. There was to have been a grand demonstration at. the Crystal Palace, and the names of many church dignitaries and noblemen were pub lished as befriending the movement; but it proved a miserable failure.

ENGLISH MONETARY AND COMMEROIAL - INTELLIGENCE. Loxnow, September 11. We are now in the midst of the vacation season when finance-mongers, like poli ticians, escape as far as possible from their familiar haunts. The stock exchange is com paratively deserted. Under these circum stances,' no stir or activity in business can be expected. The investing public make little sign, and such of the habitual specu lators as remain in town participate too. much in the general relaxation to push transactions to any important extent. Mean while, there are indications of a hopeful change when the autumn lull shall have passed, and the moneyed public come back from mountains, moors, and seasides, with recruited energies and a keener appetite for gains. Although there is no brisk demand for any kind of securities, prices in general *are maintained with remarkable firmness, and are tolerably sure to rise as soon, as active inquiry for good investments takes place. Consols are kept at a low range, wit...

AUSTRALIAN TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 7 November 1868

AUSTRALIAN. TOPICS. The termination of the constitutional crisis in Victoria has afforded an unspeak able satisfaction to all the friends of the colony in this country. As such a solution of the difficulty had been confidently antici pated when it was known that the cause of the quarrel had been removed by the return of Sir Charles Darling to the public service, little surprise was felt on receipt. of the gratifying intelligence. The effect of the ex-Governor's resolution on the belligerent parties in the colony having been already discounted here, you will not be surprised that our public journals have made only passing allusions to the subject. It is to be hoped that the politicians of Victoria will, studiously avoid all provocations to such a state of helpless antagonism again. The telegram announcing the termination of the deadlock was published in a second edition of the evening papers of August 11th, just after I had posted my letters. The last report of the Acclimatisation So...
