TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
TAS.MANrlA. TiHE Hobart Towun 1rc0rt of tie 1Oth instant thus comments on a degrading scene which occurred re cently in the Tasmanian House of Assembly :-The IIouse of Assembly last night was the arena chosen for one of the most degrading exhibitions we have ever witnessed. A low drunken blackguard named Matthews, one of the representatives of the northern . capital, under the influenc of drink and unblushing impudence, &c., saw fit in his hlalf idiotic state, to continue a course of interruption-the aim and ob ject of which ha neither knew himself nor could any one else discover. Over and over again, the Speaker mentioned him by name, but to no purpose, ho would persist in inflicting his incoherent absurdities upon the Assenmbly. Sometimes imagining that the House was in committee and monied vote, and then rambling away into the subjects of irrigation, immigration, and other matters equally foreign to the business before the Legislature. Honorable members submitted patientl...

THE SNOWY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
T'll SNOIY RIVER. -4-t- T?E following is a letter to the Editor of the Sydney Mlorning Herald: " Sir-As the Snowy River diggings are at the present moment causing a great deal of excite meot in all parts of the country, and as thousands are makling preparations to start for this place in the spring, I thought that something like a true account of the actual state of matters up here would be acceptable to you, and at the same time a benefit to all who are hurrying to the great Snowsy River. The glowing statmenrts that have been made by interested persons are so far away from the truth that I believe it to be my duty to contradict them, and to endeavor to make p?hblic the real prospects of the place. We have a paper lately published hero called thle Alpine'Pioneer, which gives a most exagger ated account of mining affairs at Kiandra, and unless the statements of the great richness of those diggings, which have appeared in its columns, are contradicted, I am afraid they will cause an i...

KIANDRA DIGGINGS August 18. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
KIANDRA DIGGINGS [vno s TE 5. M. HURAL D.D. 8 August 18. T??E weather has cleared up, and again settled down to fine sunshiny days with slight frosts at night. The snow is fast disappearing from the flats, and large green patches are becoming visible on the hill sides. The river, from the melting of thb snow, has risen considerably, but not to such ''hlight as to stop all working. The anticipated flood which was to have swept wheels, dams, cradles, and everything before it, has proved a myth, and very happily so for our miners. People begin to assert, and no\y with some reason, that we have passed the rubicon of severe weather. I trust they are correct, and, if so, all agreo we have been favored by one of the mildest winters ever known in theso Alpine regions. Escorr.--T'he Government escort left Sydney on the 13th instant, and arrived here by 11 o'clock to day, bringing £5000 and upwards of notes and slpecio for the Oriental Banck.

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. Leano otm comucoraONDaRTr. SIIELLBARBOR. August 25. WVe have had an addition to the means of teaching the "young idea how to shoot," by the establish. ment of a new school, situate about a mile and a half from the harbor; it flourishes by the name of thie Peterborough School. Much as it is desirable that the means of educating the rising generation should be increased, it is, at the same time, very questionable wisdom so to multiply schools in neighborhoods whim there is a paucity of children, as to cause such a division of the attendance that no one school has attendance sufficient to encour age and remunerate the teacher. It does seem that they who have busied themselves in inducing shoe teacher to come hero in the vain endeavor to sup port himself, wife, and family, by teachlingperhaps about a dozen chlildren, and that without the re motest chance of aid fron the National Board of Edulcation, have been guilty, to say the least, of in consideration and unkin...

The drill lasted about four hours, When the whole of the members acquitted them :sdlves to the entire satisfaction of their instruc tor. This corps stands newt in seniority to the 1st New South Wales Rifles, and are likely to add a great many to their members. Why do not the Windsor and Richmond people join them ?l-Conmmunicatcd to the Herald. 'Cuanaci AT KarANRa.--VWe must say avo feel surprised and shocked at the supineness of the clergy in this respect. With a population of between 3000 and 4000 souls, a church has oot yet even beern mooted by any one sect. There cannot now be the excuse of these dig glngs not becoming permanent.

Their sobler graive demeanor indueoj, and even col manded attention. The usual salutation of the day having been duly attended to--ssociated apparently with all the gravity that in folbrmr timlnes would have clhracter ised, unlder similar circumstances, a lohemioan moun tuineer-rtho former observed to Caleb, "And what did you think of the sermon this morning ?'

SHELLHARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
Sne.LTriu3an .-Capntan Stobo, the. agent of the 1. S. N. Company, with Mr. Taylor, the surveyor, have been at Shellharbor inspecting the little bay, and taking sounding with a view to ascertain the practicability of the steamers getting inside. We understand that matters were found more favorable than they anticipated, and it is thought that the vessels may go in without much trouble or risk. This will be a great advantage to the Company as well as to shippers, in the sa\ ing of time and Ilbor in loading and unloading, and our Shellharbor friends will no doubt be pleased at the proof afforded of the capabilities of their port. Sloss or Tit TtvEsE.-There are no less than forty-olse cases set down for trial in the Court of Requests, at the monthly sittings on Thursday next.

MISCELLANEOUS EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
.I SCELLANEOS?S EXTRA CTS. How TIsE FRENCII AWERE MADE TO EAT PorTAToEs.-.Speaking of the introduction of the potatoo into France, M. Noel, a French agriculturist, says:--This vegetable was viewed by the people with extreme disfavour when first introduced, and many expedients were adopted to induce them to use it, but without success. In vain did Louis XVL wear its flower in his button hole, and in vain were samples of the tubercle distributed among the farmers; they gave them to their pigs, but would not use it themselves. At last, Parmentier, the chemist, who well knew the nutritive properties of the potatoe, and was most anxious to see it in general use, hit upon the following ingenious plan:-He planted a good breadth of potatoes at Sablons, close to Paris, and paid great at tention to their cultivation. When the roots were nearly ripe, he put notices round the field that all persons who stole any of the po tatoes would be prosecuted with the utmost rigour of the law, and several...
THE INSURRECTION IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 29 August 1860
THE INS~TURREOCTIONIN NEW ZEALAND. S (From te Times, June 18.) Nobody can be surprised at the sensation created by the report of the insurrection in New Zealand. it is not merely that a successful and promising settlement is menaced with injury, but a great po litical qluestion is opened for practical solution ex actly at the moment that it had been proposed for theoretical debate. Howe should the military de fence of our colonies be conducted ? That is the inquiry which has recently occupied the attention of statesmen, and now, at thie very nickl of time, comes a colonial war, demanding no doubt, all our vigilance and activity, but inviting also our acnu test observation and most impartial judgmenlt. The experience of this occasion, if judiciously em ployed, may do more to resolve thie problem before us than twenty years of conjecture and discus sio~n. Tshe position of tlhe settlers in New Zealand, as regards advantage and disadvantage in this pecu liar respect, is not unevenly bal...
