MR. BRIGHT AT LIVERPOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
DIR. BRIGHT AT LIVY'APOiOL, (FRaOM THE 10M5E Wy.) A grand soiree, under the auspices of the Financial Reform Association, was given at Liverpool, on the 1st of December, to Messrs. Cobden and Bright and General Perronet Thompson. Mr. Robertson presided. Mr. Cobden was prevented by illness, and General Thompson by an important engagement, from attending. A letter of apology was read by the chairman from Mr. Cobden, who is at present staying in Paris. In that letter Mr. Cobden, while expressing his interest in the realisation of the society's programme for substituting directing for indirect taxation, observed that the present relations between France and Eng land offered a singular illustration of the im portance of a principle which implied the re moval of Custom-house impediments between nations : What means this periodical visitation (he asked) which like the cholera or some other infectious disease has, every two or three years, since 1847, caused the panic cry of a French invasi...
FRIDAY, 10TH FEBRUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
FRIDAY, 10THi FEBRUARY. The Legislative Assembly met at twenty three minutes past three o'clock. Papers were laid on the table by Mr. Forster and Mr. Samuel, and ordered to be printed. Mr. Forster said as the honor 6f the Govern ment was it some degree concerned':id the pro ceedings that took place, he wished to make a statement with reference to his colleague, Mr. Eagar. In December, 1858, Mr. Dickson called upon Mr. Eagar and asked him whether he would take a seat in the Legislative Council; he was then introduced to Mr. Lutwytche, the Attorney-General, to whom he stated his wil lingness to accept such appointment. In Au gust, 1859, he received a note from Mr. Cowper, on whom he called, and who offered him the ap pointment. Until the offer was made Mr. Eagar never saw or spoke to any minister on the subject; but it was quite true that afterwards he had frequently spoken to Mir. Cowper on the subject. Mr.Robertson expland and the matter dropped. Mr. Cape moved for correspondence of...

The constant heavy rain with which this neighborhood was visited during the latter days of last week, has occasioned floods which in some localities have proved very destructive. In the immediate neighborhood of this town the damage done is. but trivial, but reports have reached us from Shoalhaven of a very distress ing nature. The steward of the Nora Crcina informs us that the loss of life and property on the Shoalhaven river is considerable, but as yet there is none to form an estimate of it. Before entering the river on last Sabbath, the steamer passed one human body floating on the sea, and several head of horned cattle. Our informant counted no fewer than seventy sheep, three bul locks, and several pigs lying dead on the beach at the entrance to the Shoalhaven river. There were there besides a large quantity of household furniture, field produce, &e., &c. He says that it is reported there that there are about 30 in individuals drowned, amongst whom is the wife o...

. THURSDAY, 9TH FEBRUARY. In the Legislative Council to-day, the royal assent was given, by message, to the Newcastle WValsend Coal Company's Bill. Mr. Deas Thomson gave notice of a motion, Tor next Thursday, having for its object to have protests of members against any measure, for warded to the Governor-General, at the same time that the measure protested against is pro sented for the royal assent. In reply to Mr. Johnson's question in re 'ference to the expenditure of public moneys " without the authority of law," the Secretary for Works said, " The Government are expend ing the public moneys, in so far as the provision for the public service of 1860 is concerned, under authority of a vote of credit of the Le gislative Assembly, such expenditure being upon the basis of the Estimates of 1859. The necessity of thus anticipating the votes for 1860, arises from the fact that there has yet been no opportunity, since the re-assembling of Parliament in November last, of obtaining their ...
DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. GERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE, ( PF ROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) .. GERtRINGONG. It is only telling what everybody knows, to say that Gerrin ong has been visited with an extraordinary flood. It is only mentioned hero as the cause why your corres pondent sent no contribution ;o last week's issue. I wish that was its worst effect. I have not heard of any more serious casualties than the carrying away of fences. Our roads are in a terrible state; that from the Fox Ground being nearly impassable. That, concerning which there is a petition before the Municipal Council, suffered very much. It run- through the windings of the creek that in some places has formed holes and ruts; in others, left huge piles of drifted logs; and in less than half a mile, has made seven breaches in the fence at one side of the road, and six on the other, some of these being six or seven panels long. A friend who endeavored to go southward to-day (Saturday) informs me that on his arrival at the Shoalhaven River, he found th...

In the Council to-day, the Secretary for Works laid upon the table papers respecting the Branch Mint, and the rescue of white children from Fraser's Island, which were ordered to be printed. Petitions were presented by Dr. M'Farlane against the Medical Bill as amended in select committee, the amendments having been of such a nature as to render the bill wholly unaccept able to a large portion of theprofession. These petitions were from the Council and Fellows of the Medical Asssociation of New South Wales. In reference to the federation of the colonies, the Secretary for Works stated, in reply to Mr. Deas Thomson, that the Government could not yet state what course they should adopt during the present session. Mr. Johnson's question, "How long the Government intend to violate the law by spend ing the public moneys without legal authority ?" was ruled exceptionable, and withdrawn. Mr...
FOX GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
FOX GROUND. Tue WEATIFnr.-For a few days past, the weather was gloomy end showery, hut of short duration. On Thursday, about noon, the vivid flashes of lightning were to hbe seen, and peals of thunder were heard at a distance, as if indicating the proximity of a flood. Im mediately the rain began to come down with such rapidity that very soon the large and small creeks were filled to overflowing, carrying away huge logs that were lying longitudinal and across, which served, in several pilces, as temporary bridges for foot passengers. When the logs accumulated into one large raft, and the giant strength of the water urging along its burthen came in contact with trees on the bank of the creek, which nearly i~ every case either rooted them up or broke them off. The flood swept away a good deal of Mr. Blow's fence and fencin, stuff that was lying on the ground ready to put up.. (heard of two or three settlers losing a great quantity of pumpkins, melons, &ýe., and destroying a gr...

JAMBEROO. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
JAMBEROO. Our contested election is at present the only topic of interest here,. (except the weather,) and I propose to make yet oneor two remarks on the matter, before the poll sets it finally at rest. The manner in which one or two candidates addressed themselves to the business of the day at the nomination, proved that this ward is not destituteoof men fit to represent its interests in the Council. Though Mr. Hanrahan is of course some years older than Mr. Black, he had not been, I believe, at all more accustomed than his rival to address public assem blies. His few opening remarks were, in my opinions, manly and to the purpose ; and the account which he afterw?tds proceeded to give of his own share in the acts of the Council, and his notice of those acts gene rally, were characterised by a frankness and fearlessness which did him the greatest honor. Mr. Black also spoke and behaved like a gentleman-like a man of intelli gence and refinement; nor is there an individual in the war...
MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 15 February 1860
MUNICIPAL E cTIroCN.-Yesterday the polinig for an alderman to occupy the place vacated by the retirementof Mr :'Pile, took place. Numbers, at an early hour, were seen to go to the polling-place and record their votes. But hlittle feeling was shown by the :prtisans of any of the candidates; and, thanks to the ballot system, all passed off very quietly. At the exhibition of the Agricultural and Horticultural Show, we notlced more particularly a sample of "Austra lian Steam Dressed Featheas," cured and purified at Johnson's Steam Works, Pitt-street north. This being the only manufactory of the kind in the. colonies, we think the proprietor merits both praise and encoura-e ment for initiating so useful and much needed an esta blishment. We wish him every success.-Empire:
