CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. __ . _ January 23. ?i ne snip Castle Howard has arrive* in Sydney from London, having railed at the Cape of Good Hope, whence she brings news op to the 23rd of January.

WHO IS THE SHERIFF. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

WHO IS THE SHERIFF. The earth had scarcely settled over the remains of the late Sheriff, when, like greedy vultures, the expectants far and near rush in to dispute the prey. To please these gentry a Sheriff should never die any more than a King ; the spirit havine departed, the suc cessor should be announced. The coarse would be convenient in shorten ing suspense, in relieving the Treasurer of the trouble of setting down any of the salary as an unexpended balance, and save Ministers much diplomacy and evasion in getting rid of all the claims save the successful one. It is a pity that the lately improved tender system could not be applied to appointments is the public service ; from the known ability of some of the Executive iu working that scheme, great results in the case of Woogaroo, the manage ment at the present juncture will be difficult; as, at the commencement of a session, it will not do to disoblige any of the party, and more than one of the bunch are certain to have a deep...

HERBERT ON VERACITY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

HERBERT ON VERACITY. As was to be expected the memorial addressed to the Duke of Newcastle met with the most vehement vitupera tion at the hands of the Guardian. Woe it not that the article displays at every point that systematic misstate ment and insolent abase founded upon it — -unhappily characteristic of our con temporary — it would not be worth noticing. Argument itbas none, and we care little for the dogmatic assump* tion which takes. its place, bat it ia necessary to correct some of the moat prominent felsehoods in whioh that article abounds. In the first place we are told that in* ?OTrtott» it ^nota 'petition' pre ?rated to the Ctorarnor fa 4t» tot the argument on the right of petition to the Throne is beside the question. Now his Excellency the Governor and Mr. Herbert are responsible for the confu sion complained of, if Hexist at all. Any one who reads the letter of the Private Secretary to Mr. Raff, or of Mr. Herbert to the Mayor, will see this. But it is to the same auth...

MR. DOYNE ON THE NARROWEST GUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

ME. B0YNE ON THE NAR BOWEST GUAGE. We repubiisb. this morning a letter which appeared in the Melbourne Argus of the 12th instant. In the press of more important matter — for really whatever coacerus the railway initiated by Mr. Fitzoibbon, asd inaugurated by Mr. Macaxister, has by this time en.uk into a most miserably secondary position — we have before been unable to fiud room for it. It is simply con firmatory of tbe opinions we have always expressed, Mr. Dotnb baa set the seal upon the reputation of Mr. Fitzgibbon ; and not the less for this reason, that in tbe last session of Par liament Mr. Doyhe was to be the Japiter of Engineers — if we must be lieve Mr. James Taylor, who was to annihilate every one who held an opposite opinion to that expressed by Mr. Fitzgibbon. WeU, vre take tbe opinion of Mr. DorNE — cer- tainly not on anything his late as sistant has said — for that was like the assertions of other assistants of a kindred spirit to systematically depre ciate their superi...
