Some few months ago we recollect being present in that great concourse of persons which thronged around the Government House to give liis Excellency that recep tion which we much doubt whether any future ..Governor-will ever receive again; •for the people have learned their experience somewhat dearly; We also recollect hear ing Sir Charles Hotham give utterance to these memorable words, " My (jootirummt shall be that of anhonest man." How far he has acted-consistently with his doc trine, '.>we(leave every man to judge, v His policy throughout his career has been marked by craftiness, treachery, and mean ness.:. We distinctly remember his Geelong visit,' and his -democratic speech, "All •power proceeds from the people" and that ever' memorable , despatch to Downing Street, in which all power was to proceed from Sir Charles Hotham instead of the people. --There is also that little transaction connecte...

"THE RIGHT MAIN IN THE RIGHT PLACE." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 14 December 1855

"THE RIGHT MAIN* IN THE - RIGHT PLACE." A vast amount of indignation has been hurled against- members of Parliament in Great Britain and members ofV the Legis lative Council in Victoria, because- they have failed' to .realise the •..•expectations formed of them , by their constituents. They have; been abused through all the moods nnd tenses ot' vituperation. They; have been denounced as recreant. to the principles for the advocacy of which they wove chosen, and as betrayers of the in terests of their constituents, as destitute of political ;honesty :and unworthy of' the confidence of the people. All this and much more to the ,same purpose lias been said and written times without number, and yet there appears;to be rio chang;e for the better. /YVe may ask why is ..this ? .

EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF MURDER IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. By our last advices, wq learn that on Wednesday, the 3rd of October, Brid get Hurford and W. E. Dorld, a ticket of-leave man, had been tried at (he Perth Quarter Sessions, before his Honor W. H. Mackie and a bench of magistrates, for the murder of the hus band of the female prisoner. The main facts and featmes of the case are these; —John Hurford, a wealthy settler, had married a widow much■ younger than himself, with whom he lived so unhap pily that at length iheir differences led to feelings of dire animosity and almost deadly strife.

<£ipps SLanlj &iuu'toian, Friday21s£; December,' 1855. VOLUNTARY BLUNDERING. ' We referred some time back to the mis chievous and mistaken attempts of some of the Melbourne politicians who accompanied the draft of the New Constitution sent for parliamentary confirmation and Royal sanc tion, with a petition for the suppression of the 53rd Clause. The enormous absurdity has been attempted again last week in the Legislative Assembly by Dr. Emblingy who introduced a double resolution, and argued it (all wrong- side out) to the length of one mortal hour, with adductions and quotations, which, in their irrelevancy, went to prove that black is white. When we heard that he had been returned as a legislator we considered that liis constituency were as regularly sold as men could be, and the climax of absurdity has been attained in this debate. The Governor was, according to the sapient doctor, to be requested not to act on this obnoxious 53rd Clause; . If this clause is an...
