ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 19 October 1864
ITALY. ohr. Richard Digby Beste addressed the follohing telegram from Floreneo to the British ambassador at Tursn, on the 28th July :--Thls afternoon five brigands stopped my wife's carriage on the Faenza high road, seven mileas from Florence. They fired twice, wonding ono of the horses; they tore from leer what jewels she had on, and carried away our son with them to the hills, retaining him for a ran som of 12,000 scudi (C2800). They did notcomo to receive the ransom at the appointed place, and we can hear nothing more of our son. As an English man, I addess myself to youe." O the following morning the son of MIr. Besto returned, unharmed, to his father's residence. It appears that by some misapprehension of the signal agreed opon amongst themselves, the chief of the brigands thought that the ransom had been paid, and released him in the wooeds at a distance of five emiles from the villa, giving him a pass to save him from molestation from others of their band, and desiring him to...
POLAND.—THE END OF THE INSURRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 19 October 1864
POLAND.-THE END OF THE INSJB? 'IEOTION. The final scene of a melancholy drama was played out at Warsaw on the 6th August, when the last chief of the celebrated Polish national government and four, of its' members were exccuted upon the glnacis of tie fortreoss, although a pardon was hoped for to tihe last moment. They stepped upon the scalnfold firmly, and underwenttheirfate with perfect resignation and composure, in presence of an im monse crowd of excited spectators. The circum stance that will excite most astonishment is the extreme youth of the unfortunate victims. None of them were above 30. The oflicial Dzicnnikl gives a detailed account of the whole prosecution, and furnishes many interest ing particulars of the manner in which the insur rectionary government was carried on. The follow ing are extracts:- Owing to the discoveries made by the military in vostigation committee, and the increased activity of the Warsaw police, numbers of persons concerned in the revolutionary org...

(From the Home News.) AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 19 October 1864
(From lthe IHome Noewa.) AMERICA. The long inactivity of Grant before Petersburg has been suddenly disturbed by his own act. The great new movement which was so mysterionusly.nn noonced, but of which no details were permitted to be published, is now disclosed. The portinacious general bhas once again changed his base, and Poters burg, being as little available as a door for entering IRichmond os the WVildornoss, Spottaylvania court h6ouso, the North Anna, or Cold Harbour severally piroved to bhe, has boon abandoned for the north side of the James, at a placo called Deep Creek. The movement of two of his army corps, under General Foster, was moade successfully on the 27th, and it was at first supposed that Grant, with the remainder of the army, had followed. General Lee was aware of his intention prior to the 25th, as appears from an artiolo;e in the Richmond Enquirer of that date, which distinctly states that Grant " was evidently commencing a strategicpolicy,' but would be over mat...

EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN NEWS. (From our Paris rrreseonrlent.) PAnoS, 27tll Augnst. Tun last lamp is extinglishod, the last cracklor has exploded, and we may now without diniculty sleotch the movements of tihe monlth. The great attlraction of the month of August was first the fita of the fiftoonth. The first fortnight of Augulst presents but little interest. It is the custom to suspend business the .fortnight preceding the national flto, and news is very scarco. The only fact of importance has been the signature of peace between Austria, Prussia, and Denmark according to the terms of the convention which are not definitive.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 19 October 1864
THE most important news brought by the Mfadras has reference to America. It must be pretty well Itnown to our readers that fori a length of time tile Confederates have suc ceeded in keeooping their enemies out of Mobile Harbour. They placed obstructions in the way of navigation, which oven the mechanical skill of the Yankeoes was sorely tried to surmount. B3ut at last the Federal flotilla, underAdmiral Farragut, forced their way through the channel, and now ride menacingly in front of the city of MIobile. The Confederates seem to haveo made i desperate resistance, seeing that the whole of their floeet was destroyed and that their admiral lost his leg is well as his liberty. Two important forts also fell into the hands of the Feodorals, who throughout this war have boon pretty gonorally successful in all their naval operations. "We see what the Confederates think of the losing their fleet and of the danger to Mobile, from the fact that General Beoaurogard has been ordered from Petors...
THE GREAT DONKEY SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
THE GREAT DONKEY H110W. Exhibitions are one of tlhe characteristic fashions of the ago. Evorythilig almost is marshalled before the public gaze. Cattle,' horoes, poultry, birds, dogs, andbabieshave long exposed their points aild peculiar beauties to the wonder and critical admira tion of thronging spectators. Hitherto the donkey tribe appears not to have been deemed worthy of such distinguished notice. That opprobrium, however, has at length been swept away; for during the week commencing on the 8th, the magnificent hall in Islington opened its portals to a very creditable show of asses and mules, English and foreign, at the close of which numerous prizes were awarded. The costermongers came out strong on the occasion, and one man exhibited a donkey which lihad been in his possession for fortyyears. Miss Burdett Coutts was one of the most munificent patrons of the show, and the Prince of Wales was a successful exhibitor. The show was enlivened daily by plenty of donkey racing and ot...
STATE OF LANCASHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 October 1864
STATE OF LANOASIIIRE. The cotton famine has almost ceased. Pauperism in Lancashire has well-nigh sunk to its customary level, having been reduced by the revival of the cotton trade to little more than three per cont. of the population. The contial committee, therefore, have felt warranted in deciding, with some oxcep tions, to restrict their grants to persons not receiving parochial aid; and several more committees have ceased to exist. Some 20,000 persons are maintained under the provisions of the Public Works Act in Lanu cashire, but the re-opening of mills, and the abundant supply of cotton at Liverpool to keep them going, have created quite a de mand for labour.
