MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. THoE EmPEROn'S GIFT.--The Emperor Joseph 11. was in the habit of walking about incognito. One morning he went into an! ele gant coffee house and asked for a cup of choco late. He was plainly dressed, and the waiters, being ignorant of his rank refused it, saying it was too early. Without making any reply, he walked out, and went into a little coffee-house hard by, and asked for a cup of chocolate. The landlord answered that it should be ready in a moment. While he waited for it, he walked up and down and was conversing on different subjects, when the landlord's daughter, a very pretty girl, made her appearance. The em peror wished her good day; and observed to the father that it was high time a flower in full bloom should marry before it faded. "Ah!" replied the honest old man, "if I had but a thou soud crowns, I couldinarry her to' a fine' young man who is very fond of her; but, sir, the choco late is ready."

THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 11 August 1860

THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. THE Municipal Council of Kiama have made up the Balance Sheet of their transactions for the past half-year, a copy of which has appeared. in .our columns. We think that the result, so far as it has gone, is satisfactory, and proves that the Electors of this district were right in deciding upon having Local Self-Government. It will be recollected that the opponents of such Local Institutions among ourselves prd phesied that the funds would all be swallowed up in office expenses, and that the amount of good done would never be commensurate with the burden of taxation. These predictions we think will be acknowledged to have been falsified, and although the first year of our being made liable to taxation has unfortunately been one of ratheratryingcharacterfor ourcountrypopulaition we think that there is hardly any one but will acknowledge that the benefits we have received and are receiving in our public thorough fares are more than a recompense for all that has b...
