MELBOURNE. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 2 January 1886
...'. *TURSDAY. : Tshe circumstance I have so repeatedly :urged on your attention, that coalition * Governments go down like ships at sea which spring a leak when the water looks most unruffled, has' received a complete confirmation. This one appears to have had the bottom almost knocked out of it. For in addition to the retirement of Mfessrs. Service, Berry, and Kerford, Mr. Langridgd has been grumbling for some time past that the sweets of power and the privilege of organising political picnics down the harbour have cloyed upon his appetite, while Mr. Levien,it is rumoured, ,contemplates a trip home to the Indian and Colonial Exhibition. So that after all .you see there may have been elements other than the personal wishes of the leaders tending to break up the Cabinet, though I still believe the real cause *of its prematurely going to pieces lay in the loss of the ABC clauses and the subsequent rejection of the Electoral Bill. But what everyone blames Ministers for is that, as fa...
OUR ELECTORAL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 2 January 1886
OUR ELECTORAL SYSTEM. Under this heading yesterday there ap peared in the Globel a communicated article which conitained the following see tenco: " It may be taken for granted that those 43 votes were not inadvertently miscounted, and there must, thorofore, have. been dis honesty either upon the part of some of the scrutineers. 'or. deputy returning oflicoers." . That sentence was struck out before the article was printed, and only appeared by accident.. It certainly does not express our opinion, for we can very easily under stand that forty-three votes, or any other number, may havebeen inadverently mis counted, and we would not at any tiikie impute dishonesty to scrutineers or deputy returning, officers until conclusive evi-. dence had been afforded of the fact; The returning officers have given the best proof in their power of their good faith by resigning their offices, and, pending the investigation prayed for, any expression of opinion whatever is unfair and improper.

THE LORD MAYOR'S SPIT. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 2 January 1886
THE LORD MAYOR'S SPIT. Among the other good things prepared by the Marquis of Camden, for the festivi ties of Bayham Abbey, in honour of the Earl of Brecknock's coming of age, in 1820, was an immense baron of beef, so ample in its dimensions, that no spit could be found in the kitchen of the noble marquis large enough to roast it upon. Many other noble houses both in town and country, were applied tod forthis necessary instrument, but without success; andltlhe idea of roasting it whole was about to be abandoned, when, -as a last resource, the Lord, Mayor was ap plied to, and (to. the honour of city hospitality be its. spoken) his lord ship's spit was large enough,.and to spare. This said baron of beef was servedupto the table' with much pomp. The dinner trumpet having summoned the noble host and hostess, with. their numerous guests, to the banquetting room, the sound of music was heard ina distant part of the mansion;.

Those who predicted that there would be a great crush, and that we ladies would have a similar experience to that of the gentlemen at tile levdo, wore, Ialppily for us, quite mistaken. All the arrange mensts wore so admirable that, notwith standing the fact that the number of visitors was as large as anticipated, all had the .pleasure of shlaking hands with Lord and Lady Carrington without suffer ing the slightest inconvenience from crushing or confusion of any kind, and this. delightful reception, devoid of any element of stiffness or formality, became in reality a charming garden party.

DANGEROUS PLEASURES. Is it quite necessary that every holiday sihould yield its tale of victims to King Death; that the bright waters of ths bay should be for ever closed over a per centage of our plcasurei-seekers? , It is quite evident that thlere is no such ncces sity, and that most -of the deaths are entirely preventible. The authorities can easily, if they be so minded, provide that To boat shall bd alowedd to carry more than a certain number, and this number can be legibly painted on the stern of the boat, so that the danger.

OUR L'ATEST ACQUISITION. LoneD ])urrn rN has lost no timo in proclaiming thile annexation of Burmahl to Great Britain, and the Empiireo is the richor by the largest acquisition it has made since Lord: DArnousr l annexed the Kingdom of Oudo, thirty years ago. There is no doubt that he has acted with tho.full concurrence of Lord Salisbury's Government, which has displayed a most com mendable promptitude and decision. Had Mr. Gladstone's Ministry acted with similar decision in the early part of 1882 Egypt would now have been an integral part of the British Empiro, and Europe would have beeoon satisfied. It was not the possible annexation of the count~i'y,-but the interference without annexation, that infuriated France and alienated Germany. Wheni Great Britain annexes a country tlhe world at large is a gainer; for sheo loyally assumes its responsihili ties, protects its subjects, and opens its comnerce to tihe whole universe.
