THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From tUo Wellington Advertiser, 2nd March.) About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon a special messenger arrived in Wellington from Wanganui, with despatches for the Government, containing most important intelligence in connection with an engagement which took place on Saturday last, between the rebel and friendly natives, and in which the latter proved completely victorious, routing the enemies from their rifle-pits and redoubts, killing twenty-fire of their number, ani capturing seventy five prisoners, amongst whom arc eome of the prin cipal men. From what wo can learn, it appears that the battle took placc up the river, at a place where the rebels had strongly fortified their position. The friendly natives were the attacking parties, and, after a brief but terrible encounter, they drove their enemies from the rifle-pitB, and, under a flag of truce, captured seventy-flvo prisoners. All the rebel chiefs of any importance on the river, with tho exception of Mamuk...

COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PASSENGERS AND GUARD ON RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 March 1865

COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PASSENGERS AND GUARD ON RAILWAYS. (Itrom the London Observer.) Some carriages have been fitted up on the London and South Western Railway for the purpose of test ing a mode of providing signals or communication between passengers and guards on railways. The plan adopted appears to be well adapted to fulfil the purposes required with a view of obtaining a prac tical and useful result. The conditions essential for the satisfactory working of any system of the kind are that there should be the means of creating the alarm, which must be easily accessible to every passenger; it must have a means of indicat ing the particular carriage that requires attention, which cannot ba replaced by the passengers,. the connection must sound a gong or ring an alarum that is unmistakably heard by tbe guard, and the guard must have the power of attracting the attention of the driver from any portion of the train. It is generally considered impossible to carry out all these requirem...

THE RESULTS OF THE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Ballarat Star — 23 March 1865

THE RESULTS OF THE DEMOCRATIC GO VERNMENT IN AUSTRALIA. (From the Times, 13tb January.) The Australian colonies seem destined to be a sort of convex mirror, in which we may contemplate on a reduced scale the institutions under which we live placed under circumstances which can hardly occur under the quieter and more stable condition of poli tical life in these islands. Ministries rise and fall, elections succeed to elections with a sort of tropical rankneBB and luxuriance of growth and destruction of which we in these temperate and frigid islands can form but little idea. The accounts which have reached us from Victoria and New South Wales have in them both much to interest not only the practical politician, but the speculator on represen tative government, its incidents, its dangers, and its advantages; and no time can be better spent than in carefully considering and maturely weighing the in cidents passing in this little theatre which our own colonists have been good enough to ge...

DAILY ISSUE. THURSDAY, 23RD MARCH, 1865. I THE results of democratic government in Australia are not likely to be greatly affected by the badinage of the London Times, In a recent article on things in general, the Thunderer of Printing House Square pokes fun at the colonies all round, and finishes with a bit of serious and suggestive reflection on the relation of protectionist principles to Imperial interests, and hints at the necessity and justification of Imperial interference should the subject of colonial legislation ap-^ pear to be, " not primarily the collection of revenue, but rather the exclusion from a por tion of Her Majesty's dominions of the pro ductions of the labor and skill of other por tions of her dominions." Without denying that there is an Imperial side of the subject, and that from the Imperial point of view there may be something preposterous in a portion of the empire legislating against the commerce of other portions, more especially when no immediate or press...
