TIIE VICTORIANS AND THE RiVER TRADE. We have not yet ?o,en the bill of expenses which a grateful country will have to pay for the ambassadorial vaporings which have been so much the fashion in our governing circles of laic, but flie result of it all is becoming most unpleasantly apparent, Oar eyes have -een already opened to the fact ihat the Victorians had contented them selves with idministering to the personal vanities of our self-constituted representatives, and in lion zing them at dejueners, banquets, and soirees lansanlcs, while they placidly ignore/1 their pretensions in maticrs of any graver impor tance. We have lojig since denounced the unjust, unreasonable, and, 33 we believe, absolutely repugnant compact by which a system of differential duties has been esta blished by Victoria and New South Wales on the one side as against South Australia on the other.

ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

ITALY. Garibaldi has completed his tour, which seems to have been mainly an electioneering one. A Florence letter says his tour cannot be considered successful. The candidates he recommended have been generally defeated. On his recent arrival at Verona a country woman and her husband presented to him a new-born chiJd, with tbe request that he would baptize it. Garibaldi forthwith performed the ceremony in the following terms : — ' I baptize thee in the name of God and of the law-giver Christ. Be virtuous, defend the weak, and fight against tyrants. Lore thy fellows, and render thyself worthy of the name I give thee — Chiossi.' The name is that of a colonel killed in the last campaign in the Tyroi. The crowd frantically applauded. An awful catastrophe has occurred at Naples, of which a correspondent gives the following account : — One of the Baddest disasters we have known since ISoS, when the Port of St. Viuceuzo was blown up, happened at Posilippo ou Feb. 22.

RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 18 May 1867

RUSSIA. The Government is said to be seriously contemplating to introduce the Gregorian Calendar into Russia. This is strongly op posed by the Russian clergy, who declare that the introduction of the Gregorian Calendar would be equivalent to recognizing the Pope.

The Russian troops in Poland (according to a Berlin letter) have been ordered to call in their men on furlough by the 1st of April.

ADVENTURES OF A DIVER IN AUSTRALIAN WATERS. About five years ago a barque, named the Lndy Kinnaird, was lost in Torres Straits. She was going through Rain Island channel at the time, aud having struck upon one of the numerous reefs, went down in nine fathoms of water. Her cargro of copper, which she was carrying from Melbourne to Calcutta, was worth making an effort to recover, and for that purpose mv services as a diver were engaged by the Victorian Insurance Company. Accordingly T left Melbourne for the scene of j operations. The voyage thither was interest- I insr. as our ship, the Jennie Oswald, went inside, the Great Barrier Reef, being the second merchant ship on record to take the j inside route.

POETRY. THE LON&.V HOUR.

To throw their shadowy shapes of gloom around that lonely hour. those we love, Within the soul this solemn sense of loneliness will move ; A friend's deceit — the rude world's scorn — misfor- tune's bitter shower — Home tuneful strain of harmony — may cause this louely hour. And then the visions of oht youth, in altet'd garb and hue, Before our memory's sadden'd gaze, prescut them selves to view ; Oh ! then ambition's brilliant dreams no more the heart devour, But all is dark and desolate, in that dull, lenely hour. The star of hope ! -which erewhile shed its lustre on our way, Then sinks in night, and all the lovely flowers of life decay ; A boding gloom of coming ill upon the soul doth lour. And thoughts of deep despondency fill up that lonely hour. So sho...
