Public Opinion. For the statements and opinions of our Correspondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. MONOPOLIES. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 June 1867

Sublitt pinion., For the statements and opinions of our Corres .pondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. MONOPOLES. . S.To the Editor of T~ Herald. . SIR, I observe in your last issue, a letter from C. A. M. Which calls for a word or two of com ment. He is pleased to designate my second paper on "Monopolies," "twaddle and common place." It may be all he describes it; butit is quite sufficient for me if it is such twaddle and commonplace as C. A. M. is unable to re fute. He "' now writes simply to advise me to adhere to the truth." My reply is that I have never departed from it. He says--"in my last article I state that claims against Messrs'. Felgate, & Co's., vessels are never paid." I reply that I said no such thing; neithei did I use any expression which a boy two years at school could have construed so as to bear such a meaning. On the contrary, I stated in my first paper that the ships. had paid damages, in cases where merchants had had the firmness to insist upo...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 June 1867

To t~he Editor of The Herald. SIR. - STribune has .been writing, several papers about Monopbly of the carrying trade between this Colony and England, damage to cargo, sur vey by the HIarbor Master &c., and C. A. M. has been writing a couple of very angry letters callinig Tribunte naughty names. Now as there is a good deal of truth in the gerieral matter of Tribune's effusions, and at the same time an equal amount of truth in some of C. A. M's objections, possibly, you wil'allo me to have a say in the matter. Firstthen, as regards the Monopoly com plained of. I think if it can be called by..such a name, and it must be strained certainly to admit of such a term, the breaking up of the Moniopoly lies quite within the means of the shippers.

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 June 1867

• To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, I have noticed with some. surprise the phase which matters have assumed between your cor respondents, Tribune and C. A.M. The one pursuing a course of what is meant for, and I think is, reasonable dispassionate argument; the other replying reckless of logic or courtesy and ending with knock down strokes which leave the spectator uncertain on which side victory leans, and would in most cases of hasty temper evoke a retort, more physical than words and a weapon weightier than the pen. S.This outrage of all the chivalry of wordy war, is the more flagrant that the knight who has thus riished to the fray, is himself an accom plished scholar, quite able to wield the Gillott lance without resort to any of these feints which spurn the constraints of honorable warfare. A man of really generous heart, however much its better impulses may be clouded at times by hasty temper'. ' Himself too a .notable; persis tent innovator,:unpracticable, only because far in...

PARENTS AND CHILD ; [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

S PARENTS AND CHILD; "Give me a penny, I say, or I'll kick you!' I turned to look at the threatener. It was a little fellow about as tall as my parasol, stamping defiance at a fine, matronly-looking woman, who must have been his mother, so like were her large black eyes to the gleaming orbs of the boy. " Give me a penny, I say, or I'll kick you," he repeated, tugging fiercely at her silk dress to find the pocket, while every feature in his handsome face was .distorted with passion. Surely she will not do it, said I to myself anxiously awaiting the issue, while I pretended to examine some ribbons in a shop-window; surely she will not be so mad, so foolish, so untrue to herself, s'o untrue to her child, so belie the beautiful picture of healthy maternity, so God-impressed in that finely developed form and animated face. Oh, if I might speak to her, and beg her not to do it! thought I, as she put her hand in her pocket, and the fierce look died away on the boy's face, and was succeeded...

RECOLLECTIONS OF WATERLOO, BY A SURVIVING VETERAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

RECOLLECTIONS OF WATERLOO, BY A SURVIVING VETERAN. I well remember the morning: of the 18th. The heavy rain during the night had chilled the air, the dark clouds over he'ad cast a gloom upon the field, and altogether the morning was unusually cheerless for the month of June.' But I perceived no reflection of that gloom upon the faces of our men, and as column after column of the French came in sight, they maintained the same undaunted as pect. For my own part, I felt anxious but not wholly on my own account. I had been pretty well seasoned to the smell of powder on the eastern coast of Spain; but I had a brother, quite a young fellow, who never had worn a red coat until two days before. This youth, being appointed to niy own corps, I had smuggled away to join the regiment in place of the depot. I did it without leave, and the act was a rash one; but I thought it might perhaps be the making of him if he could see a little service. I now deplored my rashness. The lad ap peared so uner...

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. LITTLE THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. LITTLE THINGS. Some mothers when they sees the title of this 'eI1 settle themselves in their chairs, put on their spectacles and get ready to read it right through a fancyin' it'll be about the dear little things they're so precious fond on-the childer-a pokin' 'em under every body's nose, the silly things, thinkin' strangers must be as fond of'em as they are. How artfully "mother" brings out the baby before you and makes you take notice of it. She don't talk to you and say "Look here at this scrumptious darlin' of a blessed baby, the biggest the hand somest and the knowenest in creation." No, no she's too deep for that. She dont talk, to you; she dont take ally notice of you; she talks to the blessed babby, knowin' well enough that you can't sit silent long, and that in time you'll be sure to notice the babby if she don't notice you. "ls'nt she a sweet darlin," says mother to the babby, a kissing it fast and furious, and a makin' your lips feel itchy a...

(Bubit @pinionm For the statements and opinions ofour Corres. pondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR.- : Last week my brother " Gall" was broaching some of his crudities anent the approaching meeting of the Legislative Council, and the so called public works-perhaps you will let me - Mr. Wormwood, at yonr service,-say a few words as regards some speculative remarks of your own relative to the "mending of our ways"-legally, and positively. You remarked that the Governor had pledged himself to bring forward any reasonable scheme for the amelioration of the "Insolvent Law" which should appear to meet the wishes of the public, yet no steps had been taken by the com munity to show what is wanted, and you remarked that any reliance on the Court or its officers for amendment could not be expected. Your other remark was the speculative question ' what is to become of the roads when we cease to have bond labor ?" As respects the amendment of the Inso...

TRADE, &c. LONDON 19 APRIL, 1867 [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

•,: - . TRDE,. &c. (From our special Correbpondeint.) .: ' LomnoN 19 APrnL, 1867 I have to report business .of all kinds as: being excedingly dull in this city. Theire is little, or nothing, being done in soft goods, owing to the fact that the weather continues wet and stormy, impe ding all transactions for our summer trade, while small parcels only are being made up for exportation. Our returns show a very diminished export; to the Australian Colonies and New Zealand, with only a slight prospect of amendment. The unsettled tariff in Victo'ia, takenin connection with reported heavy stocks, and expected failures, have determined shippers on this side to wait, ratherhan make ventures in face of such unpromising prospects, while reports from Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sydney contiiinue to shew that merchants can sup ply themselves at lower rates on the spot, than can possibly be done in London. The branch houses here remain almost inactive. If speculators on this side are only co...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, S'Much sound sense, combined with occasional signs of want of thorough practical knowledge of the subject, has appeared in your Journal, on the Insolvent Law. You have reverted to the matter in your leader of Saturday last, but without giving any tangible idea of the end you aim' at. The hints which have issued from your columns on this important question, although very valuable, have been chiefly suggestive rather than positive in their nature. It is pos sible and not uncommon, to repair defects in a way which substitutes greater evils, therefore the good effect of any agitation fails, if it merely serves to excite discontent without some definite indication of the mode of remedy. The two ideas which run through your article, ".an amendment" and a "new Act," I construe as intending one and the same thing, at least I think no man at all conversant with the full bearing of the subject, would advocate anything more than mere amendment. Your inference ...

JOTINGS BY: AN OLD UMBRELLA: -0-- - 0- . -JOT ..13. - " When Flora and her party drove off," continued Miss Primrose, " I fol lowed them at a short distance, always keeping, them in view. They turned into Upper Porchester Street, and drove along until they reached the church in Cam bridge Square, where, it was plain, they were to be married. I got out, and di rected John to wait for me at a little dis tance on the other side of the square, and then entered the church as noiselssly as possible. The pew opener put me into a seat from whence I could see all that was going on without being seen myself. The ceremony had commenced; and I was in such a flutter, my mind was so confused, that it was over before I had regained my composure. They all went into the vestry, and that was the time when I ought to have slipped away. But I had a fancy that I should like to see them leave, and go sat still, thinking they would pass out without noticing me. But, as good, or ill-luck would have it, whi...

To the Editor of The Herald, SIR. In common with the large number of yonr readers I am in the habit of perusing the communications of your frequent contributors "Plain John" with interest and attention. It is but seldom that I notice anything in his letter with which I am unable to agree but I have observed in your last issue, of June Ist, a paragraph, in an ably written article signed with his non de pluime which has evidently been derived from erroneous information, and which I doubt not, he will permit me to cor rect. In speaking of the difficulty and doubt which surrounds those who attempt to procure water-supplies in an arid and level country by well-sinking he adduces York as an instance of failure. His words are "Witness the pub lic spring at York opposite the Church, once a blessing to the surrounding cottiers, sunk to a depth of 40 feet. With 8 feet of water it is utterly worthless." It must be self.evident to any resident in York that this statement is founded upon a misap...

CAPTURE OF THE BUSHRANGERS THOMAS AND JOHN CLARKE [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

CAPTURE OF THE BUSHRANGERS. THOMAS AND JOHN CLARKE- - Particulars respecting the circum stances attendant npon the capture of the notorious " Tommy Clarke" and his bro ther John, have been furnished t6 us by local correspondents, and will doubtless be read with much interest by our readers. On aturday last, the 27th ultimo, it was publicly known in Braidwood that the Government had raised the reward for the capture of the outlaw, Thomas Clarke,. t. £1,000, and that for the capture pfthe guilty brother of that desperado to £500; and hopes were consequently entertained that with this additional encouragement to prompt action, something decisive would soon be done. These hopes were rather unexpectedly realised in the after noon of the above-mentioned day, when a mounted messeng..r came into the town of Broadwood "in hot haste," and an nounced that at about daylight on that very morning (the 27th of April) the Jin den police had had an encounter with the: Clarkes, and had wounded one of...

ARRIVAL OF THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

ARRIVAL OF THE MAILS. THE summary of foreign intelligence though threatening is not unsatisfactory. The position English statesmen have taken up, enable them to offer pacific counsels. We give a' sketch of the ques tions which occupy public attention throughout the .European world - " The question of Luxembourg continues to absorb European attention; for on it hinges the question of a great European war. France is resolved that the Prussian garrison shall retire from Luxembourg, and if Prussia will not agree to this, no via media can be found. Still there is an alternative. France, if we may judge from the opinions of the majority of its journals, has no desire to annex Luxembourg, if only the Prussian garrison leave it. It holds that by .the dissolution of the Bund the full sovereignty returned, as Count Von Bismarck admits, to the King of Holland; and that Holland having made overtures as to a cession of Luxembourg to France if its people agreed, the Imperial go vernment was entit...
