KIAMA MUNICIPALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 17 November 1863
KIAMI A 31UNIOIPALITY. Our readers will observe in another part of this day's isuo anu.advertise?nnt relating tpo the fairs of our Municipality. It will surprise almost all, and we think, will please the greater part of our population to learn that the action of the -Corporaition isi about to be'resumed. We had irojected a leading aiticlo on this subject,, ;.t the ex tent of the space occupied by the tele graphic news from eEurdipe renders it im-. possible to insert such an article. We may say that on examination of the Act, we are convinced that, whatever may be said of the i'hoallhaven ease, the Municipality of Kiama is not necessarily affected thereby. It will startle some, we dare say, to hear that the present Mayor (Mr. R?. H. Owen) will not shrink from the responsibility of issuing in duo time, such warrants as may be necessary for the recovery of rates duo since M£ay last.

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 17 November 1863
FRANCE. General dissatisfaction is created. in Paris by tho Russian despatohes, and a rupture between France and Russia is most imminent, each party being about to recall her ambassador upon leave of absence. Baron Cros informed Earl Russell that the opinion of the French Government re Iatire to negotiations on the Polish question was that open declaration was ireferablle to secret and useless discussion. The basis on which the Porto and Egypt wish to negotiate with the Suez Canal Com pany is as follows:--First :--Thle company to entirely relinquishl that connection of territory. Secondly :-The Porte would authorise the Egyptian Govecrnment to fur nish workmen not exceeding 6000 men at a time. The publication in the 1Moiteuri of a long manifesto from tihe Polish National Govern ment hias caused great consternation in France.

MISCELLANEOUS. Aroxo the students of Havard Univer sity at thd militcsr# or naval schools, the youngster from Charleston or Savannah, as I can testify, was looked upon as a superior being. Although rather an un clean animal, addicted to smoking, spitting, and swearing, and given to the worst dis sipation, he was held up as a pattern of chivalry and gentility, and his descent from the cavaliers was favourably contrasted with the plebeian origin of the grandsons of the sturdy Puritans. Here at Newport, at Tabhant, at Seratoga, in all resorts of idle ness, as in-the busiest cities, Southern fami lies moved in thebest circles, feted and made much of, the very spoiled children'of A meri can society. If there was an impossibie war in the world one would have said it was a civil war betweenc the Nothern and South ern States. We hadl heard the threat of it a hundred tinmes; and as many tiiies the fear of it lhas been laid aside as chimierical. Indeed, it; may be safely said nio such wair wo...
