WEDnE5DAY-FEBeRUA?Y 24; In the Legislative Council, The Summary Convictions and Orders Amend ment Bill was taken through committee of the whole, and reported with amendments, adapting it to the precise form in which the English law as now amended, stands. The St. Andrew's Cathedral Close Bill was read a third time and passed. The Police Itegulations' Extension Bill was the next matter on the paper.

The United States had some petroleum on her deck, to which fire in,some. way was communicated, and almost as soon as the steamers came into collision they were in flames. The cause of the disaster is 'said to have been a confusion' of signals.1' The' whistle of the America was 'twice blown; but the pilot of the United States apparently did not hear it, and the America again sig nalled by two blasts of her whistle'; this time the United States answered, but it' was' too late.

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
IRELAND. The jury at the inquest on. Captain King, who was shot at Sligo borough election, has ,found that the pistol went off accidentally during the struggle with Mr. Webber. They expressed great sympathy with Cap tain K]ing's family, and censured the police for not giving him an escort. The corporation of Dublin have re-elected Sir W. Carroll Lord Mayor for the ensuing year. As Dr. Savage, of Armagh, was returning to that town by train from Newry a night or two ago, a gun heavily loaded with grape shot or slugs was fired at the first-class carriage in which he sat, breaking the thick glass.- Dr. Savage was the only passenger in the carriage, and, as he was leaning down at the time, he escaped with slight outs about the face and hands. A reward has been offered for the discovery of the person who fired the shot. The inquiry into the death of the man shot by a soldier at the election riots in Drogheda has closed. The jury returned a verdict of manslaughter against one of the two so...
POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 4 March 1869
(From l the EIlisla papera.) POLITIOAL. Of the ability of those four-and-twenty gentlemen forming the new ministry there can be no doubt, while among Them are three of the greatest orators of the day. Most of them have had official experience. This administration is constructed of men whom public opinion .had marked out for place, if not in all cases for the places they occupy Mr. Oardwell, for instance, would not have been supposed the best choice as war secre tary, nor was it thought that Mr. Layard would have accepted that of chief-gardener to the metropolis. But there are other remarks which have been made. It was expected, at all events by the radical party, that after the enormous extension of the suffrage-the problem of the leap in the dark having been numerically solved by the addition of about a million of electors-thee first cabinet would contain much more of the advanced element. But of radicals pure and simple the cabinet holds but one, the Right Hon. John Bright, and he...
