The Bega Gazette. "Quod petis hie est." SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — The Bega Gazette and Eden District or Southern Coast Advertiser — 29 February 1868
CJje JJtja 0ajette, •' Q'uod.p§Ji« hip>st." Is last week's, issue we commented upon the constitutional iudifference exhibited by the. people of this dis trict in all public matters, and we hoped that the meeting, which was convened for Tuesday last, would have been numerously attended. To our great surprise, we did not find a I dozen persons present, and this very fact is a justification of our remarks, and fully corroborative of the truth fulness of our assertions. It certainly is not a very pleasing task, or perhaps wise policy, to animadvert upon the public conduct of those who are our constituents and supporters, yet, as a journalist professing to advance the interests of the public at large, sin cerity and honesty of purpose render it an imperative necessity that the people should be told of their derelic tion of duties, which; citizens, freeholders, and responsible beings, they are morally bound to fulfil in the .promotion and advancement of ihe country they have adopted—an...

In opening the proceedings the chairman read the following letter from Mr Berne:— ' "John D'Vcy, Esq. " Dear Sir,—I regret that owing to business engagements at^Eden I nm pre* vented from attending the meeting to morrow. The question to be settled— " the management of the Tartlira stores and jetty"—is one of vital importance to the district, every week bringing an in crease of fraffio and more produce to the stores, and as there are already slight complaints about want of room, exposing -perishable goods on the jetty, &c, these will be sure to increase ten or a hundred fold, unless at once attended to. . Neither the position of the storekeeper nor the public is satisfactory. Captain Sergeant should be provided with a house to live in, instead of, as at present, having to make use of a corner of the s...

APPREHENSION OP THE MAN .WHO FIRED THE BARREL.

Cfjc Bcga #a?ette. 1' Quod petie Mc cat." It is a strange yet nevertheless a true, idiosyncrasy of human nature to be careless and thoughtless about future events, Ynore especially those that are considered troublesome and of ill omen. ' Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof" seems to be the "universal panacea for "the quietude of any conscientious scruples that may be entertained on the subject of future casualities, and so, philosophically, the present hour seems to be ail that the people seem to live for. These ab scraet teachings may be all very well ■when properly and seasonably applied ; "but no greater fallacy exists than this same doctrine when used in the way of defence or excuse for the neglect of common foresight or prudence, which should always be observed by men in the most ordinary transactions of life; but when we may say this childish indifference to the future contingen cies in the common events of human affairs is exhibited iu tlie people collec tively, we are...

THE OLD SOLDIER. br a Commercial Trwelleu. I hive often occasion to pass through a villige on the St. AJban's r > id, at one end of which there is so tidy and convenient a public-house, th it I always give my hoi*3e his bait there, if I h ipoen to be travelling in my gig. I h id frequently observed an old soldier, who, h iving lost an eye, a leg, and an arm, in the service of his country, hid pretty well earned the privilege of idling away the rest of his life in a manner particularly congenial with the habits of one of his cilling. He would sit on a bench, outside the door of this inn, with a pipe in his mouth, and a can of beer by his side ; and thus he would pass all the fine months of the y -ar. In winter he merely changed his seat. He was constant to his pipe and can ; he took both with him to the warm chimney corner ; and thus he enjoyed his out pension. During the hour of baiting, I have often talked to this old man. He had served last in the early part of the war on the P...

DISGRACEFUL SCENE IN THE ASSEMBLY. (From the Empire.) In the Legislative Assembly, yesterday, in coarse of the discussion on the point of order as to the right of Mr Parkes to comment upon documents which he had just laid upon the table of the House, Mr Macpherson, and Mr Hart bad some con versation, the object of which appeared to be to prevent Mr Parkes from addressing the House in reference to the documents in question, which related to the subject of education. The object appeared to be, I to have the papers merely laid upon the table to prevent statements being made before members had had an opportunity of readihg them, abd to defer discussion to a subsequent day. A point of order had been previously discussed, and the Speaker ruled that Mr Parkes was in order, and that a discussion could then take place by adopting the proper course. Mr Macpherson rose and said he wished to speak on a point of order. Speaker said there was no point of ding Sefore this House. Mr Maopherl^n lwi»...
