This now poem ^of Mr. Browning is characteristic of its author. It shows a combination of analytical and dramatical shill which is peculiarly his own, as ho probeB deep recesses of human nature, and reveals the working of variously constituted minds.- Tho poem is in the form of a monologue. - Who the Prince is, it is hard to say. Ho is like and yet not like Napoleon III. The poem needs reading more than once iu order to grasp ils meaning, and the reader can hardly be euro even then that he has done so.

THE STATE or ICELAND.-Many persona (tay our Dublin correspondent) argue favourably as to the condition of opinion in Ireland, end the prospects of the future, from tbe small degree of interest taken anywhere in the celebrations which tba pro-Fenian part* organised io con- nection wilb 8L Patriot's Day. There are un- doubtedly a good nany who think that the rest of the '"political prisoners," as they are ulled, might now safely be released, but beyond thia sentiment there waa not o tra oe of reality or purpose in the demonstrations in Cork, Drogheda, end other places. The > soiree and ball in Dublin were a conspicuous failure. Mr. Butt alone, of the leaders, appeared, Mr. John Martin, M.F., and Mr. A. M.

ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 11 June 1872
ANGLO-AUSTRALIAN IN LONDON. TUE following are extracts from Anglo Australian's letter in the European Mail of 10th April, just to hand per " Black Swan " and Messrs. Berkelman and Co.'s si earner " Ant": The high price of copper, now worth from £103 to £105 per ton, must give a great impetus to the miniug industry in South Australia, nor does there appear to be any indication of the price re- ceding ; on the contrary, there is every probability of a further rise, owing to the known small stocks in Chili. I must not forget to congratulate the colonists upon another very important iudustry about to be developed in New South Wales, iu the district of Clarence in the northern part of the colony, between the Macleay and Clarence Hivers, and contiguous to the Queens- land frontier. Australia seems to be taking great strides towards recovering the lost grouud of tho past four years. Her mineral resources are daily being more and more known, while the advance in price in the metal market mu...
