ialua e Rab jforcigu-xtractu. . ExaAonotreARr Doo.-At Alderliott camp there is a large spaniel belonging to a sergeant in the Rhovyal Artillery, who has been taught by his master, during tedious days of camp life, to perform tricks that are almost marvellous. The dog is perfect in drill, marching slow, quick, and at the double, in obedience to the word command. After he had been put through his paces, his master called him up and asked his opinion of the various regiments on the ground. Where the plungers ehe best corps? -no signs of approval. Where the 42?= Foot? silence on the part of the dog. alter going over half.a-dozen names, the master asked,. exactly in the same tone as that in which he had put his plrevilos questions, thedog's opinioti of the Royal Artillery. He instantly burst out into joyous barking, jumping about, and rolling.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 29 October 1861
If I might give a ahort hint to an impartial writer it waould be to tell his fate. If he resolved to venture upon the dangerous precipice of telling unbiassed truth, let him proclaim war with mankind-neither to give nor to take quarter. If he tells the crimes of great men they fall upon him with the iron hands of the law; if he tells them of virtues, when they have any, then the mob attacks him with slander. But if he regarda truth, let him expect martyrdom on both sides, and then he may go on fearless; and this is the course 1 take myself.L DE Fox.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 29 October 1861
AMERICA. In a communication dated Waslhington, July 24, Mr. Russell states that there was intense anxiety to hear what impression would be made abroald by the battle. ' What will Enthlnd and France think of it?" was the question which is asked over and over again. Of the Cabhinet, Mr. Chase, the Secretary of the Treasury, is perhaps the only man who bore up against the disheartening intelligence of the battle of Bull's Run. Of the popular feeling, he .says;- "The ministers are already ordered to resign by 'the emasters of the mab, and ssfer a just punishmtent for their temporary submisasions to thes clamour of e creown less monarhs of the north-east. The Secretary at War, Mr. Cameron, whose brother fall at the head of his regi 'Sent in the field, is acehsed of making the very sub mission-which was, indeed, a crime, if ever it occurred -by the very few people who urged it upon himo , and there are few Ministers who escape invecstive and insittu ation."

NEW SOUTH WbALES.. MODEL OF THE KEY BrIDaE.-The Model of Mr. Woore's " key briges" in the gallery of the hall has attracted a considerable amount of attention, and numerous enquiries as to its principle and con struction have peen made of the machinists, Messrs. .Tames and Davis, who are in attendance Lfor the purpose of giving explanations to visitors. The peculiarity of the bridge was recently described by its inventor in a paper read at a meeting of the Philosophical Society, and which appeared in our columns. We subjoin a few particulars respecting the principle of the bridge, premising tlhant its con struction can only be unde:stood by an inspection of the mnodel.
