WILL THE COMING MAN DRINK WINE? II. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 February 1869
WILL THE COMING MAN DRINK WINE ? II. ... (From the Atlantia Monthly.) "" O? all the experiments which have yet been und.ertaken with a view to trace the course of alcohol through the human. system, the 'm6ast-important were those made in Paris a few. years ago by Professors Lallemand, Perrin, and Duroy, distinguished physicians and chemists. Frenchmen have a way of co-operating with one another, both in the investigation of scientific questions and in the production of literature, which is credit able to their civilisation and beneficial to the world. The experiments conducted by these gentlemen produced the remarkable effect of causing the editor of a leading periodical to confess to the public that he was not infal lible. In 1855, the Westminster Review contained an article by Mr. Lewes, in which the teetotal side of these questions was effectively ridiculed; but, in 1861, the same perindical reviewed the work of the French professors just named, and honoured itself by appending a...

THE NEW MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 25 February 1869
THE NEW ItNISTRY. The new ministry, in. view of these, con tingencies, will require all their tact to keep the good ship of the state In quiet waters. When I last wrote, Mr. Qladtose ihad booeen summoned to the ,helmi of: affairs,! and was busily .engaged. in forming an administra- tion. The resignation of' Mr. Disraeli, though it took the country by surprise, and .?as without; precedent, has been generally approved, not only as the most honourable way of recognising a decisive defeat, but as a fair stroke of policy, by which he places himself in a better position to meet the measures of his opponents. 'Mr. Gladstone had little difficulty in completing his task. As I could not give you any details, the following list, which I believe comprises all the members of the new 'administration, may be found of service : CAIINET. First Lord of the Treasury, the Right Heon. W. E. Gladstone. Lord Chancellor, Lord Hatherley (late Sir W. Page Wood). * Lord President of the Council, Earl De Grey....

A FEARFUL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
A FEARFUL. TRAGEDY:. On. Thursday night,' December 15, a revolting murder was icommitted: near Ack 'hurst 'Hall,'three miles from Wigan.:; Mr. Williani Houghton (the farm bailiff) .and his wife, who lived about two ,hundred yards from the hall,'had' left their own house, in which there were five children, for about : an hour. On their return home, at a distance of thirty or forty'yards from *the 'door, they saw a white object; which was at first mis taken for a duck, but which: on closer inspection was found 'to be the dead body of their eldest child, a girl of twelve. 'She. was covered with blood and dreadfully in-. jured. The parents rushed forward to the house, calling for the second daughter, Catherine, aged nine, but: for a short time she 'could not be found. She' was at last heard calling timidly from hehind 'a hedge, " is that you, mother ? " The' child was at once taken to the house. She said that a short time after her father and mother had gone out a man, rather taller tha...
SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
SPAIN. Spain is still, kingless; but-her revolution has had its baptism of blood. The repub lican party has donelits best to raise a dis turbance, and,has succeeded so far that at Oadiz barricades were raised, and there was much slaughter on the side of the troops, as well as on that of the insurgents, who had so far the best of it that they held the ";Silver Basin." But this was only for a time, and until Prim, who is not tobe trifled with, could despatch a trustworthy com mander to deal with the case. He, on arriving with a strong force, and calling up ironclads and other vessels, intimated to the revolters that unless they surrendered, it would be his painful'duty to m~ake a day of ruing and mourning for Oadiz. This lan guage did not fail in explicitness, :and in- a short time the surrender was made. It is to the honour of the victors that there were none of the executions which would instantly have followed in the Queen's days. For the moment things are tranquil,, and the mu-' n...
THE QUEEN AND COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
THE QUEEN AND COURT. Her Majesty is passing her Christmas at Osborne, in the Isle of Wight. The nation's favourite, the Princess Royal, took leave of her august mother on Monday, to return with the Crown Prince and the three children, to Berlin. Princess Louise and Prince Arthur are with the Queen. The Heir Apparent and his Princess were last heard of at Copenhagen, but very wisely there is no regular narrative of.their travels transmitted, and they are -allowed to enjoy themselves without the supervision of a special correspondent. On the anniversary of the demise of. the Prince Consort, the Queen 'and siioh of the Royal Family as were here at Windsor visited the mausoleum, where a service was performed. The beauti ful and costly memorial to Prince Albert is now complete, all but some -trifling decora tions, and i it is one of the "very noblest shrines in -which dedvotion' has-'stored away the .":dust that once was loved."
CHRISTMAS—THE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
SOHRISTMAS-THE SEASON. So we -are spending our Christmas in political peace, and instead of at the end of the broil and battle which would: have rung in our ears had Mr. Disraeli chosen to fight instead of throwing away his arms. It is a gloomy season, the weather vailable, but usually savage, and always too warm. Violent gales *have swept over the islands, and there has been much loss of life on the coasts- and at. sea, and many casualties on land, from the fury of the wind. Rain has been incessant, and'the floods 'are out in the lowlands. T: he 'moral" atmosphere of the time has, resembled the physical, and crime has been very rife. 'We believe that out rages of allkinds have been in excess of the ordinary. :rule, 'and there are about a dozen murders. now.. being. accounted' for. The first 'private :execution of a woman took place'. t' 'Linioln' on Monday; she had' clearly poisoned' her husband, but refused to -confess, and the chaplain therefore refused' her the comfort usually a...
FRIDAY—FEBRUARY 26. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
FRIDAY-FB RuAtA? 26. In the Assembly, Ministers, in answer to a question, said that the government had taken no steps towards establishina a free public library, except having an interview with gentlemen connected with the Australian Lib~rary who desired to sell the books and building. Mr. Bnrdekin presented a petition from the Licensed Victuallers' Association against the Linens?' ing Act Amendment Bill. Mr. Farnell moved the second reading of the Btrials' Regulation Bill. He explained that the only law which had- regulated burials in the colony had been contained in an act passed in 1825 for the preservation of marriage and other certificates. This nRt had been repealed by the Marriage Laws' Con solidation Bill; and the burial clause being repealed with it, there was now no law regulating burials in the colony, and bodies might he interred anywhere: except in one or two cemeteries. To prevent the continuance of such a state of things as this, he had" introduced the present bill, w...
THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS.; The House of Commons, now that its components have been analysed, is seen to be itself a reflex of the nation. So far from being a body likely to forward or to favour any revolutionary measures, it may be called eminently conservative in the non partisan sense of the word. Rank is largely represented and wealth still more largely, while the fact that the average age of the members is fifty-two is a guarantee that due consideration will be given to any and every change that may be proposed. What there is of youth is among the aristocrats by birth; there is scarcely a rising young radical in the House. The whole of the so called leaders of that party, and of the Reform League, have been excluded. Those who trusted in the common sense of the peo ple have not trusted in vain. Hereafter, it is more than possible that a more direct in fluence may be exerted by the many; but they have shown no reckless eagerness to avail themselves of their new rights, and it wil...

PROSPECTS OF THE MONEY MARKET. LONDON, Jan. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
PROSPE'TS OF THE 'MONEY MARKET. Lo DoN, 'Jan. 1. The new year opens under somewhat better auspices as regards the condition of the money market. There has been no fur ther rise in the bank rate of discount; nor has such a movement been needed, for the two turns of the screw have served effectu ally to check the foreign outflow of gold. The position of the bank at this season is considered eminently satisfactory. There is always a pressure for money at the close of the year. Private individuals and joint stock banks alike are anxious to end the year with a good balance in their favour; and this desire, extensively operating, generally leads to considerable activity in discount business. The present -season has been no exception to the rule. The transac tions at the Bank of England during the past'fortnight have been on a large scale, at tighteniing; rates; and yet, in spite of this. exceptional pressure.upon its resources, the amount of bullion has augmented from week to week, showin...

COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
COMMUiNICATIONS WITH THE EAST. From the animated correspondence which has lately taken place in some of our lead ing journals, it is evident that the agitation for, the establishment of a really trust worthy telegraphic communication between England, India, and Australia, will not be allowed to subside till something satisfac tory is done. The battle between the rival advocates of the land and the deep sea routes appears to be well-nigh fought out, and it is for the on-looking public to form their judgment, and urge their wishes on the im perial parliament. Last session Mr. Craw ford, M.P., presented a petition to the House of Commons, signed by all the prin cipal bankers and merchants of London, praying for increased facilities, which, in deed, are imperatively demanded by our vast trade with our eastern dependencies. It is universally admitted that the present route, via the continent of Europe, is altogether unsatisfactory, the messages being too often subjected to long delays in...

THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. THE WRECK OF THE GOSSAMER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. (ftom the London correspondent of the dlelbourne Argus.) THE WRECK OF THE GOSSAMER. AMONwG the terrible shipping disasters of the past month, the loss of the Gossamer, a vessel outward-bound for Adelaide, will pos sess a specially painful interest for the colonists. This vessel, a China tea-clipper, with composite frame of wood and iron, and owned by Messrs. Potter and Brown, of Liverpool, left the Downs on the 8th of December, in charge of Grant, a London pilot. She was under the command of Capt. Thompson, with a surgeon named Mr. Date. There was only one passenger on board, Mr. George Dale; but a lady, Miss Jane King, was waiting at Plymouth to join the ship, and it is said the Rev. James Jefferies and family, of Bristol, had purposed going out in her. On the 9th ult., during a smart gale from the south-west, the Gossamer was working her way down channel in the pilot's charge, the captain, who had been only three weeks married, and who had been on deck all th...
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. TUESDAY—FEBRUARY 23. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (From the 8. M. Herald.) TUESDAY-FEBRIARY 23. IN the Assembly, Mr. Forster, in answer to a question, said that it was not the intention of the government to intro duce this session any bill to authoriso the sale of certain improved conditionally purchased land. Mr. Church took the oaths and his seat for the western gold-fields. Mr. Macleay moved the adjournment of the House in order to obtain information on two points. First, he wished to know whether it was true that the Duke of Edinburgh, prior to leaving the colony, had written a letter to the Governor, requesting his Excellency, if he could not justify it to himself to pardon O' Farrell, to reprieve him until a communi cation could be sent home, and the pleasure of her Majesty should be known. If such a letter existed, the people of New South Wales ought to know it; and he was astonished that a nobleman like the Earl of Belmore should have been instrumental in keep ing it so long secret. The second...
THURSDAY—FEBRUARY 26. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
THRUSDAY-FEBRUARY 20. In the Legislative Assembly, In committee of the whole, a resolution affirming the desirability of introducing bills to continue and .amend the Cattle Disease Prevention Act and the Diseases in Sheep Act were agreed to; and the bills were subsequently brought in and read a first time. In committee of supply a vote for £120,000 was taken to pay the services for the month of February. On a vote to cover this supply being proposed an committee of ways and means, Mr. Piddington entered very fully into a consider ation of the financial position of the country. The government ought not to ask for this expenditure until it had shown there were ways and means to meet it. As it is now, £400,000 would have to be borrowed in order to cover the currert expenditure. The treasurer had last year, when in opposition, laid down the doctrine that the committee ought not to vote money which the House had not to grant; and he pressed that opinion upon the attention of the hon. gen...
