THE MOUNT GAMBLER EXHIBITION OR "CAMERA OBSCURA." [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 12 July 1861

THE MOUNT GAMBLER EXHIBITION . V OR "CAMEBA OBSCURA." . Intelligent reader, do you know what kind of a machine ia a " Camera Obscura?" The words are Italian, and signify " A Darkened Chamber." By means of a mirror placed on the roof, the images of external objects are thrown down on a white sheet spread oyer a table, and you can see a moving panorama of all that is passing outside. I recollect one at Gravesend, for the amusement of the cocknies, a number of whom were present when I visited it. Amongst other things which we saw in that" darkened chamber " was a minia ture panorama of Tunbrldge Wells, some miles .distant; and on a seat in the garden sat a young lady twirling her parasol; and then appt oached a ypung gentleman who peeped under the parasol, and playfully stole a salute. That youug lady did not know or recollect that a tell-tale. mirror some miles off revjealed the pleasant theft, and that a group of laugh ing girls in a '. camera obscura n enjoyed the revelation I Now, ...

Published every Friday morning.. . FRIDAY; JULY 12TH, 1861. THE BOURBONS. The days of the House of Bourbon are num bered. Like the House of Stuart, which its character, so much resembles, it is at last doomed to an inglorious and tinpitied extinc tion. Never again will any reactionary and . retrograde movement of the races it so long trampled on recal any branch of that house to a vacant throne. Fugitives and vagabonds on the face of the earth, the Bourbons. may ob tain temporary shelter and sympathy in the , palaces of moparchs more fortunate and less guilty than themselves; but nothing can save them from the ignominious fate which, by a long' career of tyranny and perfidy, they have .so richly merited.: Like the Stuarts, at once superstitious, profligate, faithless, cowardly^ : arid, cruel, no adyersity-er- cap i ice of fortune has ever availed to teach them, how to reign; and although an inscrutable Providence has extended to them a clemency and forbearance, "truly wpnderful, yet...
