OVERLAND MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

OVERLAND MAIL. It is propable that at no distant' time the Italian. railwaws will be made avail able for the transmission of our overland mails to India. And of the Suez Canal also complete the passage of the mails to India and the East will be shortened in point of time very considerably. The port of BTindisi, which would propably be selected for the shipments of these mails, is about as far distant from Alex andria as is the Island of Malta. The sea voyage from Malta to Mariseilles, which is the most stormy portion of the whole, would thus be avoided, and the land journey through Italy would be more rapid as well as more'agreeable than that by. water across the Gulf of Lyons. The :route proposed for the Eastern mails would go to Paris, and thence by the Marseilles line to Mlacon, where it would diverge and take the line by Chambery to St. Michael, on the French side of Mount Cenis. It is ex pected that the Summit Railway over this mountain will be completed some time next year. Fr...

A FRENCH COMMENTARY ON THE ENGLISH BANK ACT OF 1844. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

A FRENCH COIMIMENTARY ON THE ENGLISH BANK ACT OF 1844. The DEbats 'has the followingu-ipon the reduction of th4 Bank of. England rate of discount :-Who would have believed a few yearsago, even last.year, that the rate of dis count would ever have been at ten .per cent. in London while it was at three and a half in Paris, and that such a state of .things ..would last during an entire season ? We are positively in the age of surprises. What is most promi nelit from this commercial and financial phenomenon is, that the system upon which the Bank of England has been conducted since 1844. is a deception, for their is no denying tnat the crisis under which England is suffering is due to that principle. In fixing a mathematical and absolute limit to the quantity of banknotes to be issued by the Bank of England, that system renders a panic inevitable as soon as the public perceivesthat the limit isbeingapproach ed. Then bankruptcies accumulate, one on the other, and the entire commerce of t...

COLLEGIATE SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

*: i- :COLLEGIATE SCHOOLS. ::.. In reading over aj Melbourne Journal our attention was arrested by seeing the report of the proceedings of the Church of England Grammar school. There is no reason. why under the present superintendance of our Collegiate school that similar gratifying results should not follow, one feature in the report is especially sugges tive, namely the reference to the successes that have been achieved by pupils who have left the Colonial school and honorably hom peted with their rivals at home for places and position in our old and time honored English Seminaries. It behoves the heads of families to seek for external outlets, to re-open home relations, and to avoid, either snbdividing or overcharging the colonial homestead with these few preliminary observations we give the extract : Yesterday Wvas the annual speech day at the Church of England Grammar School, and, as it usually happens, the hall at the school was very well filled.

ZILLAR: A TALE OF THE GREAT DELUGE. Inu fjbuv &apter&+ CHAPTER 2ND. .Noah was 600 years- 6ld4, but he bore his vast age with dignity, and fro'ti his very resence beamed a placid majesty impossible to behold without -? feeling of reverence and awe. Of gigantic stature and grand propor tions, his noble form was yet erect and -vigorous, his dark and solemn eye still blazed with a youthful radiance, his broad and massive brow was yet unfur rowed, -his cheek yet ruddy and un wrinkled, and the only thing that' at all betrayed "his length of days" were his long locks of reverend silver, aid his snowy beard . of immense amplitude. With the port of a king, and, the proud assured step of a monarch, all gave way before. Patriarch Noah. And though sneered at by many, and; his Divine mission doubted by all, yet a universal feeling of respect attended him wherever he went, and before him the young and the aged alike bowed down.

REFORM QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

- , IREFORM QUESTION. re iithis the question which has taken such -:ihold rupon: public opinion will have been brought to issue... We assume that as far as the display of physical force can forward the cause, 1ir. Bright and his associates have expended their capital, and that the contem plated monster meeting in London has taken place. That a reform bill will be passed we doubt not; that it will not satisfy the ex treme reformers, or please the extreme conser vatives, is equally certain, that few like it in any shape or form is evident from the apathy of the middle classes, and the silcnce of the Srural population; no doubt great masses have assembled, say as at Leeds 200,000, more or less; of that number how many were women and children, how many idlers, how many opposed to the extreme opinions of the speakers. Where were the West Riding members-how many of its 35,000 electors attended that meet ing. These observations apply equally to almost all the monster meetings. On this ques...

To know them thoroughly, you must ride the one and marry the other, and though you'll soon diskiver-they don't always go easy, that they'll try hard to have their own way at times, and that you must keep them well in hand or they'll bring you to grief, you'll also find many good qualities to make up for these queernesses, and lead you to look on that man as a fool who chooses to walk when he can ride, or re...

SThe value attending the operations ap pears to be well appreciated by the Members. The advantages of the read ing room and library have been used in a large measure with uniform regularity. In this there is satisfactory evidence that the usefulness of the means of mental recreatien afforded is fully prized.

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

1sitrldIanta u . LONGEVITY OF THE JEWS.-The high rate of mortality amongst the French and other emigrants of North European descent in Algeria has had the effect of directing atten tion to the question of innate differences in the vitality of races, and the extent to which certain races, through some congenital organic and dynamic speciality, possess such exceptional vigour and power of vital resistance as to bestow upon them the cosmopolitan privilege of acclimisation upon every spot on the globe on which they may choose to settle. Contrary to what might have been expected, it is a well known fact that of all the contingents of the grand army of Napoleon, th2d natives of Southern Europe, and notably the Corsicans, best supported the rigour of the Russian campaign. And this inhefeent elasticity of the functions which bestovls such peculiar apti tudes and immunities, are we to look upon it as the inheritance of races whose native clime is characterized by great meteorological vicis s...

PRUSSIA'S MISSION IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

PRUSSIA'S MISSION IN GERMANY. (From a German Paper.) It is very comic to hear how people in their controversies are always using the same expressions over and over again. " We must join with Prussia; for Prussia is a strong military nation, and offers us protection," we have heard many Liberals in South Germany say. "Prussia is our anchor of safety;" we hear the Junkers of the Kreuz Zeitzung also crow; for "Prussia is a military state." Now we would advise the Liberals who rejoice at this quality of Prussia to reflect on the matter a little; for Prussia is a military *Bate, not only to the foreigner but also thwards her citizens. Prussia has to tlhank her rise, increase, and glory, not like the young kingdom of Italy, to the adoption of an idea.in accordance with the times, which breaks down thrones, takes away the boundaries of countried *and unites separated portions .of a similarly inclined population into one great, splen did whole; no Prussia conquered, sword in hand, nearly al...

BANKS AND BANKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

BANKS AND BA;NING-. Mr. Law has favored the readers of the Herald with an advertisement to " contradict a statement" which appeared in its pages last week. :Thuse who took the trouble to read the "statement" referred to, cannot fail to observe, that, although it "contradicts;" it in no way refutes it. The writer stated, in general terms, that the Bank charged 10 per cent. per annum, for Bills which merchants allowed their customers to renew. Both Banks charge 10 per cent. per annum, for renewals; and, when Bills are renewed by the Banks, they have a perfect right to charge l(0 per cent., or any higher rate they please. But, when a Bill is renewed by a Merchant, as part payment of an acceptance previously retired, and has upon it two names, that would render it negociable, at the ordinary rate, were it not a renewal, for them to charge 10 per cent., because the merchant has renewed it, himself bearing the risk, is an act as impolitic, as it is unjust. It is unjust, because the Mercha...

MELBOURNE. INTEICOLONIAL WOOL EXIHIBITION. i::Thiis very .important, and interesting exhition closed yesterday, after being visited by Sir H.

EDUCATION QUESTION CONSCIENCE CLAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

EDUCATION QUESTION CONSCI ENCE CLAUSE. ", .: Mr. fHubbard, who was chi?ef spokes man of.a deputation, told Lord Derby that the clergy were much alarmed-by the terms of the Conscience Clause, that the number of grants received by the Church ef England in aid of the buiding of schools is falling off. The grievance, according to Archdeacon Denison, is that under the Conscience Clause a parent may require as a right that his child. shall receive only secular instruction .in a Church school. The Earl of Derby ar.gued that, inasmuch as every school built left one less to be sup plied the falling off could not fairly be wholly due to the cause assigned. That the Character of the school is not affected by the exemption of a few individuals, the Church school remains such, the Catechism and Creed are still taught there to the great body of the children. The withdrawal of a child from the estab lished order of religious instruction would take place in very few cases. Experience teaches that t...

OUR FOREIGN TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

OUR FOTREIG1N TRADE. The subject of Banking, which occu pied some portion of our attention last; week, may be very properly followed to day by a few remarks on Commerce, without which, Banks cannot exist. Commerce is the principal source of Wealth. It is the exchange of our superabundance, which we do not want, for that of other countries, which we actually require, and are glad to obtain. With the advance of civilisation, Society is beset with a number of artificial wants. that cannot be supplied by the soil on. which it exists; and man is, therefore, driven to devise. means whereby he may possess himself of the productions of other countries. He looks about him, and collects of the produce of his own clime, such as cannot be consumed; he honey combs the earth in his indefatigable search after mineral treasures; he racks his invention in the manufacture of useful implements, costly utensils, and rare tissues: these he carries to foreign ports, where he receives in exchange articles...

SISTERHOODS IN ENGLAND. (Saturday Review) [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

SISTERHOODS IN ENGIACND. (Saturday Review) Not long ago we drew public attention to the opposition offered by a majority of the Govefii ors of St. George's Hospital to a proposal that thb nursing department should be entrusted to Stt Peter's Sisterhood, Brompton-square. We then discussed what appeared to us the strangest feature in this opposition -namely,that the arguments which mainly determined it were wholly inapplicable to St. Peter's, and had but a very remote application to hospitals. The gentleman who discovered that our National Church and admirable workhouse system, with various other privileges of beloved Protestant England, were in imminent danger, not only treated hospitals as if the were semi-religious institutions, but also held St Peter's, respon sible for practices which are observed in many sisterhood, but from which St. Peter's has always studiously kept itself free. But, apart from all reference to the character of the arguments which helped to determine it, the ...

Italy. THE ROMAN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 February 1867

Italy THE ROMAN QUESTION. 'Rome! the capital of Italy ! sounds great and to most appears a just and feasible object. Yet in truth it is neither the one or the other, Rome is in its moral political and physical features distinct, from any other capital of government in ancient or modern times, it is the seat of the spiritual head of the largest body of professing christians in the world, and although in this advanced age of the world ostensibly he occupies a position far different from that of his predecessors, who placed their feet on the necks of trembling monarchs, he is not altogether without considerable influ- enee in the councils and certainly over the consciences of Princess and populations who still look up to him as the vicar of Christ upon earth. Rome presents the singular anomaly of a government which admits of no lay inter- ference and yet retains the form of its ancient Republican institutions and in no capital, in no state is the republican feeling so strong or the rev...
