'here is nearly a completo cessation of all transactions in the southern districts just now. Sales of the e'w cattleand sheep at present io the market are very difficult, and therqe are alostot nosed' 05 soute. It must have appeared Mtrange to others, as it certainly did to ourselves, that iwtite wo oorer hearing certain complaints about the severity of the drought and the scarcity ofgrass, the Mlelbourne market should he heavily glutted with fat stock.

THE TRIAL TRIP OF THE "GREAT EASTERN." [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 24 December 1859
S'TlE •TRIAL 'TRIP OF. THE "GRiEAT EBASTERN." -4---- S(AsnBIDED FROM y TBIhIE5, 12TII OCTOBER.) The experimental oruise of the Great Eastern is over, and has been. accomplished with greater success.than most persons had anticipated. At 1 o'clock on the 8th of October the steam was up in Portland Roads, and all ready for a start. Soon after two the crew were sent forward to heave up the anchor, which was not easily managed; and it was not till all tile musical rc sources known to sailors on such occasions were nearly exhausted that the tenacious grip of Trotman's patent was released, when a slow drift with the tide showed that the great ship was again set free. The number of persons, exclusive of the crew, on board, did not exceed forty; and most of these were in some way or other connected with the ship. During the operations of rounding the break water, the bugle sounded for dinner, but the attraction on deck detained many from the sumptuous hospitality that awaited them below. At ...

SHOALHAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 24 December 1859
SHOAL?HAVEN. I am very happy to inform you thlat the harvest in this district has, on the whole, turned out favorable. The wheat in some instances has been injured by rust but the vield generally is an average one. Farmers are expecting better prices than theyv received last year. On consideratiol, thely are a class to be pitied, as the rents are very high, and wvages dear, so thliat after do duetil exCpenses, the profits on fthrming do not pay. T°h hurmllsa ia this district are a most industrious and xenmplary class, and it is lamentable that their effobrts for the last two or three years have been in tlhe de creesing ratio. Between the ravages of insects, tile cost of freighlt, and tlhe demands of lasdlords, tllheir interests have materially suffered. Bat the ensuing season sasay possibly provo fivorable. I am happy to inibrll you that the Shoalhaven muni cipality is working well. The Mayor (Mr. Richard K(emlp), is a gen~tleman well qualilieti for his ollice, asid the mnembers app...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 24 December 1859
The scheme propounded by Mr. JENKINS in his lecture on general education, is not, we think, the best that might be adopted to ac complish. the end he proposes to secure. Mr. JENKINBS would hope to extend greatly the benefits of primary education by the abolition of all school fees; and to encompass this, he recommends that the tax on tea and sugar be retained, and the revenue derived from this source be applied to educational purposes. We do not think that doing away-with school fees would promote to any great extent the educa tion of the children of the common people. The sum required now in the shape of sohool' fees is so insignificant that we think it can debar none. in the golden lands of Australia from the education dispensed in our common schools. But if there are any paients, as doubt less there are some few, who areiunable to pay school fees, we would say let provision be made by the State for the education of the children of such; but by no.means let school fees be alto get...

EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE TO 2ND NOVEMBER. (RECEIVED BY MEANS OF THE RED SEA TELEGRAPH.) [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 24 December 1859
eEUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE : TO 2m. NOVEMBER. (RECHIVED BY MEANS OF THE RED Sca. TEoEGRAPH.) (FRO? TUE 5. N. HERALD.) There is great political disquiet, both in Great Biritain and on the Continent. The hope of preventing war between Spain and Morocco, expressed in our telegram of the 18th ultimo, has been disappointed. War has beeh declared by Spain against Morocco, which will necessarily involve to some extent the French Government of Algiers. Italian affairs are presenting new difficulties, and seem to be insoluble. It is satisfctory to learn that the Liverpool wool sales are one halfpenny above last quo tations.
THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON AT BORDEAUX. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 24 December 1859
THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON AT BOR DEAUL (FROM TUE uERALD'S CORREsPONDE?T.) The Emperor and Empress arrived at Bor deaux on Monday, 13th October, and during their stay there the Italian residents were ar rested and placed in safe custody. His explanq ation of this is that four Italians had stolen passports from the Sardinian consulate at Al giers, and had sailed for France, passin~g through Montpellier. Now this little fact ap pears to speak volumes. The regenerator of Italian independence goes in fear of his life from-who? No less than Italians ! Indisposition prevents me from dwelling upon this extraordinary circumstance. The Cardinal Archbishop of Bordeaux pre sented an address to his lMajesty with the object of expressing the desire of the Roman Catholic priesthood to obtain the views of his Majesty, and to end their anxieties, that the Pope should be secured his temporal power-a matter on which tile whole Roman Catholic body, clerical and lay, naturally feel a deep-a very deep in tere...

LORD JOEN RUSSELL AT ADERDEEN. -4-- (ROeM THa nose NEws.) The freedom of the city of Aberdeen was pre sented to ILord John Russell, in the new Musio hall, on the 28th of September. More than 2,000 persons were present at the ceremony. After acknowledging the honor conferred upon him, and glancing at ithe subject of reform, Lord John,. in his address, proceeded to the quiestion of our foreign policy, to which at the present moment his attention was of course chiefly directed. The fundamental principles upon which. that policy, should be based were, in his opinion, sufliciently..plain, but their ap. plication was not always esy : ." I believe that our affairs must always be conducted with due regard to the rights and independence of foreign nations; that the rule of doing as we would be done by is not only a maxim of Christian mnorality, but the. rule of international conduct.. (Cheers.) But when we apply such rules we find constitutionally that, hairing relations in every quarterof t...

•REVIE W. Universal Educalionr: A Lecture delivered by R. J.; Jenkins, Esq., M.L A. SYoDNEy: Ilnoroft, York street. Education seems to have taken hold of the public mind in this colony &t this time. It certainly is consist cut with the well-being of a State that its inhabitants should possess the advantages of an educational training so that they may know tlheir dity as follow-citizens and loyal subliects, and we think it will be conceded that this colony hIbors under groat disadvantages in having inefli cient teachers. However, any competent person who seeks to finld out a system to embrace so dlesirable an object as an ellicient general system ofeduacatio miust be halled with a hearty welcome fronsm every well-wisher of the general cause of freedom.
