LITERATURE. ALFBED TENNYSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 15 October 1864

LITERATURE. ALFBED TENNYSON. The series of lectures for the benefit of the " Befuge" come to a conclusion on Monday, when Mr. H. K. Watts discoursed oa "Alfred Tennyron," at the Prmhran Town-halL The j attendance vat unusually large, and the chair j was taken by the Hon. A. Michie, who Intro- j duced Mr. Watts to the iiManiUsgo. Mr. Wans began by smarting the trnth of wbatJwGuId appear to come a paradox,—that this should te called the tine age of poetry. He, for one, doubted the uncomfortable doc trine that this was a predict! age, and that the ege of poetry had departed, for he oould see no slgo of decay in its perceptive or creative power. It war rather the true Au gustan age of British literature, and if we were dying as a race, we were making a swan-like end. There were more turn poets, more true poetry written, and more earnest readers, than at any other period; and poets found audiences larger ana more arm pathetic than ever before, ft was impossible now for a tine poet to pas...

PHYSICAL CHANGES RESULTING FROM AUSTRALIAN COLONISATION. No. II. CHANGE IN CLIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 15 October 1864

PHYSICAL CHANGES RESULTING FHOM aUSTHALIAN COLONISA TION. Bt AY. Lock ha bt Morton. >0. II. CHANGE IN CLIMATE. The question has often been put as to whether eertain climatic changes have not taken place since the first occu pation of the territory of Australia, espe cially of this portion of it. A difference of opinion prevails in reference to this subject. People generally are apt to allow impressions to lead them to con clusions which may be wholly unreliable. In the absence of scientific observations during the first years of settlement, there is unfortunately nothing but impressions available in answering this question. A general opinion prevails that very consi derable modifications have taken place in the climate of this colony and of other portions of the continent. Based on an experience of more than twenty-two years, during the whole of which period meteorological observations have to some extent engaged my attention, I am of | opinion that important climatic changea hav...

THE YEOMAN'S PAGE. SILK GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 15 October 1864

THE YEOMAN'S PA6E. SILK GBOWUTG. The readers of the Yeoman are aware that are guve full measure, pressed and running over, to the important subject of silk-growing ; but as the many thousands here who read The Austral asian very likely cannot lay their hands on the files of the smaller publication, we shall, from lime to time, in answer to the frequent inquiries of our correspondents, recapitulate the chief facts of sericulture as it now stands in Australia. Silently and slowly, but surely, the growth of the white mulberry for eventual silk-raising is making considerable way in Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia. In New South Wales a plantation of twenty acres has been formed by a gentleman, exclusively of the Horns mul ticaulis. At Yering, on the Upper Yarra, Mr. Martelli has nine, and intends to have thirty acres, under the Morus alba, and has engaged Italians to attend to them. The number of patches of smaller extent up and down Victoria is considerable. Mr. Boss, at ...

RATING OF SHEEP. (FROM THE OAHTERBURY STANTARD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 15 October 1864

BATING OF SHEEP. (fEOM THE OAHTEBBEBT BtASDlBD.) The result of the division on the Sheep Bating Bill has caused no little dissatisfaction, and frill, wc fear, excite a spirit of antagonism to one of tbe most important interests of the province j which is greatly to be deprecated, and for which we think the flockowners as a body have given no grounds whatever, VP© believe that there is no class in the community more willing to contribute its fair quota to the requirements of tbe province than the occupiers of sheep runs, Xue Bill which passed the Provincial Council in a former session, mid which provided for a rating on their runs, met with no opposition from them, and only failed to become law by the action of the General Government. The Bill which came before the Council on Tuesday was, strictly speaking, in* defensible in principle, inasmuch as it imposed a tax on one particular class, and levied it on their trading capita). Still it was only intended as a temporary expedient, til...

THE GREAT DONKEY SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 15 October 1864

THE GHEAT DONKEY SHOW. Exhibitions are one of die characteristic i fashions of the age. Everything almost is ; marshalled before the public gaze. Cattle, 1 horses, poultry, birds, dogs, and. babies, have < long exposed their points and peculiar beauties to the wonder and critical admire- j tion of thronging spectators. Hitherto the j donkey tribe appears not to have been deemed j worthy of each distinguished notice. That opprobrium, however, has at length been ' swept array; for daring the week com- i metidng on the 8tb, the magnificent hall in \ Islington opened its portals to s very creditable show of asses and moles, English and foreign, at the close of which numerous prizes were awarded. The ooatei mongers came out strong on the occasion, and one man exhibited a donkey which had been in his possession for forty years. Hiss Bordett Coutta was one of the most munificent patrons of the show, and the Prince of Wales j was a successful exhibitor. The show was enlivened dai...

The Central Committee, therefore, have felt war ranted in deciding, with some exceptions, to restrict their grants to persons not receiving parochial aid *, and several more committees have ceased to exist. Borne 20,000 persons are maintained under the provisions of the Pnblic Works Act in Lancashire, bat the re opening of mills, and the abundant supply of cotton at Liverpool to keen them going, have created quite a demand for labour.

The phan tom hingahip has been ofleied to the Mar quis of Lanedowne, to the Dnke of Devon shire, and to other noblemen, but one and all they have begged to be excused. They all prefer to remain on their own estates. Failing any other grandee, The Tina hints that the poet has been conferred on Lord Wodehouse. The Irish press asks why not send Prince Alfred to reign at Dublin Castle 1 Bach a measure would be extremely popular, and do much to destroy Irish discontent.

Civil government bad broken down, business was at a complete stand still, and faction perpetrated unchecked its mad and bloody orgies. There is aUH considerable ohscnrity enveloping the origin of those ferocious outbreaks.

AUSTRALIAN TRANSPORTATION. The audacious outrages reported by the last mail as having been perpetrated In Mel bourne, dniing the ordinary hoars of bad ness and in the most frequented thorough fares, have attracted a good deal of notioe on this tide.

I believe that in your stern protest against the continuance of this evil any longer, you have the sym pathy and hearty good wishes of the vast majority of our people; and that favoura ble public sentiment must tell upon the Administration in the long run.
