Called to discuss the question of free-trade or protection to native industry thej' degenerated, in nearly every case, into -mere turbulent demonstrations, in which the attempt was hardly made to argue the subject lor which the meetings were palled, or if it was made, there was little or no disposition on the part of the persons as sembled to hear any argument except on the Bide that happened to be most numerously represented at the particular meeting.

HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 15 March 1865
HOME. At the Christmas reception of the Cardinals, the I Pope delivered an allocution. He said that in the present day robbery was committed under the pre test of nationality.

Ke would not cease to WCBS Catholics of that nation, the Emperor, the Empress, and the Imperial family, and would pray that all necessary enlightenment might be accorded to them.
