RESIGNATION OF SIR JAMES ' 'MARtlN^V'. "/' MR. SPEAKER announced on Tuesday, 11-t.Ii inst., that he had received the folio wing letter from Sir James Martin : , 'Clarens, 11th November, 1873.

Court of New South Wales,,and that I,, tae same day, accepted such offer.

YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS: [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 15 November 1873

YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS: THE Melbourne Daily Telegraph of Wednes- x day has the following :-In his <£ Confessions \ of an Editor," Mr. E. Parton, the well-known American journalist, records his disgust at seeing his paper as full of crimes, offences, and wickednesses as a Christmas pie is of ? plums. He set aside a special column-just one out of twenty-for good deeds, and found that .he could not fill it, while the nineteen overflowed with their budget of guilt and misery. But now and then the journalist does come across a pearl of purity. À line in '% "a report of a meeting in an Auckland paper .1 tells us that a cheque for £1,000 has just 1 been received for " Home Missions" there, and the signature is George Selwyn, by which name a great oarsman, a great norseman, a great sailor, and a greal bishop is known to the world. Bishop Selwyn left two fortunes' ' in New Zealand, and what with gifts to the Polynesian Mission, to the Maoris, and this last offering, it...

Sm,--I find an erroneous impression has . gone abroad to my prejudice that I am the ail thor of some verses entitled, " An Elegy oh a late Editor," which appeared in your paper a week or two ago. Not for the sake of the contemptible slanderers who have cir- culated this false report, but to satisfy my numerous friends, I will feel obliged by your contradicting it. I may take this opportunity of stating that I have not written a line of poetry or versification since I attained man ' hood. I do not profess to have any talent for lampooning my neighbours, and I never attempt it. Yours trulv. WILLIAM WALKER. [Mr. Walker was not the author of the Elegy in question, and had nothing whatever, to do with it. The author is another well known gentleman altogether, and à frequent contributor to our columns.

A HEART-THROB FROM THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 15 November 1873

A HEART-THROB FROM THE PAST. OF all the matches ever made on earth we doubt if there has becu one more purely the creature of love than that of Victoria and Albert ; and we don't know why a scrap now and then of heart-history may not be as valu- able and interesting as are a thousand and one other things that exercise the genius of the chronicler, and are paraded with grand flourish in our histories.

'." TASHiMIA. ^.-^.ÜL'í OF QLD TIMBS J- EMBODYING THE ' BUSH CiiRBER OF MATTHEW BEADY. Written by J. E. CALDEE. /From the Hobart Town Mercury. J Such of the bushrangers who temporarily escaped pursuit after the capture of Brady, were all shot, or taken soon afterwards, the laBt survivor being an old and daring offender, named Dunne. But very few particulars have been preserved of the last days of their career, in any published reports. The only two news- papers that were then established, are silent or nearly so on these subjects, for it so hap- pened that just after the fall of these men, all the energies of the Government were employed in the task of trying to crush one of them out of existence, for attacking its policy and ex- i posing certain acts of maladministration, as it thought them, and as these two journals took quite opposite views of the subjects under review, every number of them is filled, or nearly so, with controversial matter, arising out of the so-called libels of...

CHAPTER X. THE CATASTROPHE, [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 22 November 1873

CHAPTER X. THE CATASTROPHE, THE night was pitch dark and bitterly cold, and a drizzling half rain, half sleet beat in the faces of Hugh and Gerald as they made their way towards Clifford's Inn. A clock struck ten as they arrived at the gate, and as the last stroke died away, the gate was cautiously opened, and a whisi ermg voice 6üid, ' Come in.' It was Jacob Moss who spoke. ' I have got the porter out of the way,' he said, in a low voice as they entered. ' Wi ny ard has been home, and gone out again ; he has not yet returned, but he cannot be much longer. This way; old Mother Flint (thehousekeeper) has gone to bed, and we are all safe from in- terruption.' He led the way into the house, admitted the two gentlemen, and closed the door be- hind them. In the meantime, Winyard had proceeded to Whitehall. At first, Captain Axtell. was nowhere to be found. And when he " was found, he was very unwilling to do what the lawyer required.

In the Painted Chamber the secret commission are un their knees at prayer, previous to arrang- ing the final details of their task. On5 a sudden, the tramp of soldiers and a loud com- motion is heard in the street beneath. Crom- well runs to the window, and looks forth. ' lt is he !
