VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 19 April 1861
VARIETIES. EEFrCT OFr. THE SECESSION ON" BRIlTIS alanElca.-The effect of the disruption of the American Union, however severely it may be felt in the United States, will cause no injury to Canadia. If, as some persons seem to think, the secession of the Northern States may lead to ithe establisshment of a number of smaller confederacies in the North, the United British Colonies would then' be much more powerful than any of these separate Govern ments, and would obtain an influence on the North American continent proportionaie to their extent, wealth, and commanding. frontier. The Brit:sh Government has no wish to, aggrandiso itself in the New World ; but if circumstances should arise to make as relatively the greatest' power on the con tinent, awe hope it will not be considered a great political crime if we endeavour to realise the predic tions of a writer in one of-the Boston journals, that England must "become first of 'American nations as she is now the first of European nations....

TREATMENT FOR SNAKE-BITES. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 19 April 1861
TREATMENT OF SNAKE-PITES. (From the Coelombo Observer, February 16.) We feel it a duty to give prominence to the fol lowingplain and simple sirections for the treatment of snake-bites. The great point of course is imme diate excision, and a copious flow of blood from the wound. Stimulants in such cases may be valuable. But if excision has been neglctced, then hope centres in the exhibjtiou of large doses of stimulative medicines-brandy, or arrack, by all -means, if nothing else is to bo had-but the remedy is liquor ammonia. TREATMENT OF SNAKE-BITES. The following directions for using liquor am monia in the treatment of snake-bites has been published by Government - 1. Thirty or forty drops should at once be given, mixed with two ounces (equal to a wine glassful or cluttak) of water, and this should be repeated at intervals of ten or fifteen minutes, till all symptoms of the poison disappear, and till consciousness be restored. The above is the dose for an adult or full. grown person...

AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 19 April 1861
AUSTRALIAN EZPLORATIONS. (From th, Times, January 11th.) IF the Continent of Australia be in one respect the glory, it is in another the reproach of England, considered as a great colonising country. Tihis remark will be abundantly made out if we consider, first, the colonies which we have planted, and, secondly, the discoveries we have made. On the extreme siuth-west of the Continent we possess the colony of Western Australia, or, as it used to be called, Swan River. This settlement, remote in its geographical situation, and not very much favoured in the quality of its soil or the indentations.of its coast, is the only colony to which transporation is still continued. Passing over a long and odreary interval of coast without harbours or rivers, we next come to the colony of South Australia, and 'its. capital, Adelaide -a territory circumscribed in extent and lying rather far aside from the great lighwnay of ooean commerce, but possessing a. fertile soil, vast mineral resources, and...

THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 30 April 1861
THE ENGLISH MAIL. The following summary of intelligence is from the Home Hews: The greamt news from Europe is tIhe fall of Gaeta. Everybody expected it, but nobody expected it quite so soon. The besieged appear to have hastened their doom by their own characteristic bad faith. They asked for an armistice to bury the dead, andi to rescue the living from the ruins of exploded powder magazines and battered fortifications; and, having obtained it, they devoted the opportunity to the repair of the breach that had been wade in the walls. Cialdini, whose condict throughout was distilnguished by generosity and forbearance, then determined to grant no more armistices, and the next negotiations were carried on under fire. The place at last grew too hot even for the hottest headed of all the Bourbons; and on the evening of tilhe 13th his Majesty surrendered. On the morning of the 14th he embarked for Rome, where he arrivdd on the following day. Cialdini entered Gaeta as Francis went out, and t...

'Ihe point of this case was, whether Miss P?tcrson's corriage with the late Priace Jerome Bonaparte was legal or not. The argu ments on both sides were of :great length. Is. Berrver, advocate for the plaintiff denied that the mlarri?ge, as alleged, was clandestine, or in fronud of tihe lass. hiss Paterson was eighteen, and Jerome Bonaparte twenty-One, sa the sedding wos ceelrated by a bishop in the presence of a rjroshl crnslr, i'hie marriage status hod lasted from 1803 to 180, aond the decree of the Emperor annulling the colntract could have no force over a marriage contracted before he was Emperor.
