Much has . been said and written of the justioe or injustice of punishing the shocking crimes committed by the natives since the slaughter at Oakura na murders ; and we believe that tho majority of the colonists condemn the Government for issuing the proclamation by which pardon was pro claimed to the perpetrators of all but a very few of these murders.

THE PANAMA RAILROAD [Newspaper Article] — The Australian News for Home Readers — 27 June 1866

THE PANAMA KAILROAD Is 'one .of the most striking examples of Amerioan energy and perseverance. For the following particulars regarding its construction we are indebted to Harper's New Monthly Maqazine for January, 1859. The Dro jeot of a great inter-oceanic communication across the isthmus of Panama had been agitated for cen turies, but never attempted until events oocurred which turned the attention of the American people to the subject. In consequence of the' settlement of the; north-western boundary, by which the United States came into possession of Oregon, and the war with -Mexico, which added California to their posses sions, it became a matter of importance to render these distant territories more accessible than by the route around Cape Horn. Congress accordingly, in 1848, au thorised contraots to be entered into for the establishment of two mail lines of steamships, the one from New York 'and New Orleans, to Chagr'es, and the other to connect with this by the Isthmus from ...
