The Panama and New Zealand Company's steamship Kai koura, with the English mail .of the Sad July, via Panama, arrived off Syd ney Heads at eight o'clock on the night ? of Septem ber 4th. We are in the midst of another crisis, milder, perhaps, in its manifestations than the previous one, butidentical as to the' questions at issue- The Darling grant ia ostensibly the cause of the quarrel; but, strictly _ speaking, it is the occasion only.' The real question is whether the Upper House is able to resist the Assembly in dealing with the finances of the coun try. It is not our object to argue the matter one way or, another, but simply, to state what the nature of the struggle is, and^to Vccord the main . features of its progress. ?

HOP GROWING IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

HOP GROWING IN QUEENSLAND. A great change has taken place in the puMio taste since the- reign of Henry VIII., when, according to honest' oldjiWaltajjfc Bligh,;in his English. Improver -Improved, ' the famous city of London petitioned the Parliament of England against two nuisances: Newcastle coals in regard to their stench, &c, and hops in regard they would spoyl the taste of drink, arid endanger the people.' And he very aptly moralized on this by. saying, ???? Had the Parlia ment been no wiser than they, we had been in a measure fined, arid in' a great measure starved, which is just answerable to the princi ples of those men who cry down all devices' bt ingenious discoveries as projects, and thereby stifle and choke improvement. The ' ingeni ous discovery' that hops preserved beer from souring, and improved its quality, has given rise' to a very extensive and important branch of - agriculture, and one too that is very lucrative to the farmer. It is for this reason that we c...

THE NEW MERRI CREEK BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 20 September 1867

THE NEW MERRI CREEK BRIDGE. One of the most important local works that has for a considerable time been undertaken in the suburbs, namely, the laying of the   memorial stone of the new bridge across the Merri Creek, took place on Saturday. The bridge is to be erected in place ef the old wooden structure, which for years has been falling into decay, and is no longer considered safe. It has been undertaken by the Heidel berg Road Board, the members of which have for years agitated in favor of a new bridge, which should afford, by opening a new route, greater facilities of access to their district. The new bridge is situated about half way be tween the old one and the Northcote bridge, and on the line of road originally proposed by the Roads and Bridges department. This road will have few of the steep acclivities that exist on the old one, and will be, all things considered, a generally level road. The bridge will be built of brick, with stone facings, and abutments. There...

NATIVES BOASTING AN EMU. . The picture on page 13 is a pendent to one which appeared in a recent issue represent ing some natives stalking tho emu. This scene represents them roasting a captured bird. The flesh is said to be good eating; and to re semble coarse beef, both in appearance and taste. Turning to Gould's 'Birds of. Aus- tralia' for information, we find the following remarks on the subject : — ' There is but little fit for culinary use upon any part of the emu except the hind quarters, , which are' of such dimensions that the shouldering of two hind legs homewards for a mile distance once proved to me as tiresome a task as ever I re collect to have encountered in the colony. I may remark that its flesh proved of the great est service to Dr. Leiohhardt and his interprid companions during- their overland route from More ton Bay to Port Essington ; in the course of which,- but more. particularly between the head of the gulf of Carpentaria and Port Es sington, the sight and ca...
