The number of votes polled in favour of Mr. Marks, though greater than that recorded for any of the other candidates, was not so j great as^ many had expected. It had been the almost general I expectation that there would be, at least, one hundred of a majo rity recorded in his favour. There was a great concourse of elec- j rors, and the peaceful demeanour of each was highly commendable. , We noticed no unseemly bickering ;' nor did any 'obtain. Three ' of the candidates, Messrs. Osburne, Waugh, and Marks, were present during the day.

.®Ji£ CaJratml 'IrBss. ' A QUESTION OF FACT ABOUT THE UPPER HOUSE. '(From, the' Empire, April 3; ) . The elections have brought forth some ingenuities of -ather a novel cast. Among these is the assertion, often j repeated by a certain order of the candidates, that the ?Upper House will be virtually not nominee, but of popular construction. At first we were rather amused with this dictum, so little expected by the farmers of the Constitu tion. It was their object, if we have a true memory, to avoid popular influence altogether in the construction of V .that House. We are not sure they will thank their ?friends for the new meaning by. which the measure is de ' .fended. But we on our part can thank them notwith . -standing. Such an assertion would not be made if it ? were not felt to be necessary ; and in making it as an , cxcuse for the Upper House, the inventors of it dor,in - ? effect concede everything to the elective principle, and disavow their sympathy with Crown nomineeism.

AUSTRIA'S BLOODLESS AND OBJECTLESS SURRENDER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 April 1856

AUSTRIA'S BLOODLESS AND OBJECTLESS SUR RENDER. (From the Times.) History is full of instances where kings, under the iron control of an irresistible necessity, have made the most shameful con cessions to their subjects, but never, we apprehend, so tame and base a submission to so slight and shadowy a compulsion. Who has read without indignation the recent language which our great ' poet puis, into the mouth of a de throned king ? — With mine own liands I gave away my crown, 'With Riiini own tongue deny my sacrol' state ; With mine own breath release all duteous oaths ; ' : -'' All pomp and majesty I do forswear : My acts, decrees, and statutes I deny. . , uuu Jiiuuua au wmus giww, w uit,. ^ Gofl keep all vows uubroke that are made to thee.

English Extracts. THE IMPENDING DOOM OF RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 7 April 1856

Cttglialj (grtrrots. THE IMPENDING DOOM OF RUSSIA. { From The Times November 29.) . No doubt, public opinion has its abuses, but if we want to see the consequences of its absence, they are exhibited to the world in the present condition of Rnssia. A more awful case never befel man or empire. Russia has 110 one to advise her. Wrapt in his dark and solitary despotism, the Czar has none with whom he can divide his counsels and to whoso courageous friendship or just authority he can submit his own rashness or perplexity. An obsequious Administration, a devoted army, a servile church, a fanatical people, are but brute instruments of imperial power, and altogether rise not to the value of one faithful friend. The fate of self-will, however, is familiar enough, for every man is an autocrat in his own bosom, and every man who relies in his own judgments or rather, who follows out his own fancies or passions, is that which the sycophants ot Russia wouship in the maddest of their Czars, iiuve...
