MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
MEXICO.. :The corresbondent of the Times, writing from New York-on May 4, has the following with 'reference to .the state of affairs in Mexico and the probable fate of the Emperor Maximilian :-The news we have received here during the last few. days extinguishes the last hope of the friends of Maximilian. The ill faated empire set up by Napoleon has ended in blood and massacre. American sensitiveness to the estab lishment;of a foreign dominion on this continent does no~t'prevent the people from sympathising with the unfortunate Austrian prince in the calamities which have 'fovertaken him. His wife, it is said, is suffering the "worst of human afflictions, and the Emperor himself, refusing to the' last to desert the,;post in which :he was placed, is a fugitive among a .hostile people. The efforts of the United States, government to save him have either beer~ disregarded or .circumstances have rendered them fruitless. Maximilian's courage and resolution have already caused a revulsion...

THE -NEWS BY THE BOMBAY. THEi P. and O. Company's mail steamer Bombay, with: the English mails to May 26th, arrived in Sydney late on Friday night. We give from our files the following particulars of the news, previously abridged in our telegrams. The Bombay, though making a longer trip from Melbourne than had been expected, still arrived about five days before her time, as she was not due in Sydney until Wednesday next, the 17th July. (~rora the Home Newos.) We have not done much more with the Reform Bill since the last mail went out, and yet we have raised an important issue, and have heard two very reimarkable speeches. In the leading article in our last, reference was made to the issue in quesstion. The difficulty of dealing with the compound house holder:as he is inaccurately called, was then sup posed to have been done away by the government's acceptance of the proposal to abolish the system under which he exists. Days went on, and it was not until the end of the week that we ...
HOUSE OF COMMONS. HABEAS CORPUS SUSPENSION (IRELAND) ACT CONTINUANCE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
HO'USE OF COMMONS. AiBEAS cORPUS' SUSPENSION '(IRELAND) ?ACT CON - TINUANCE :BILL. Lord Naas (May 21) moved for leave to bring in a' bill to renew for a limited period the Habeas Corpus Suspension (Ireland) Act." The existence of the act, he stated, had enabled government to take precau tions which had rendered the recent attempt at in surrection in Ireland of no avail. The insurrection lasted only a few hours; and one reason, probably, was that when it broke out it was found that many of those who had been intended to be the leaders were in prison. At present Ireland was tranquil; but there were indications which rendered it unsafe to discontinue precautions, and he therefore proposed to continue the Suspension Act till the 1st of March next.. The last arrest was made on\ 23rd of April, and the-total number of arrests under the act was nine huridred and sixty-one, of whom seven hundred and seventy-eight had been released. Mr. Maguire said he 'hoped the second reading would be taken...

Holloway's Pills are undeniably the finest.medi "cine in the world, for billiousness and indigestionm In all cases of deranged stomach,. determination of blood to the head, bile,. sick headache, liver and stomach complaints, there is no medicine known that will give such immediate relief as these re nowned Pills; young and old, rich and poor, patro nise them, and so- many cures are effected by their use, that their praise is sounded from the torrid to the frigid zone;. in truth persons who travel, consider them a necessary requisite. In sultry -weather or warm climates or in India, the blood becomes over heated,. the liver torpid, the skin covered with prickly heat and the whole system languid and exhausted.

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; ACCIDENT TO MR McPHAIL.-On Sunday last, &nbsp; Mr T. McPhail [father of Mr McPhail, of the Public School, Queanbeyan] Honeysuckle Point, met with an accident which it is exceedingly fortunate considering Mr McPhail's weight and age-did not terminate fatally. The accident happened it appears as Mr McPhail was coming into town on horse- back to church. He was riding quietly along with a quantity of tracts in his hand for distribution, and when opposite to Mr Jones's cottage he heard the sound of horses and horsemen on the road behind him. The horses were galloping at a rapid rate of speed, and were being urged on by whip and spur. As soon as they got up to Mr McPhail, his horse swerved on one side and one of the horses of the men running against him, he was unseated, and fell heavily to the ground where he lay for some time. He was at length lifted up by some of the people living near the spot and conveyed to his own house. Several of Mr Mc...

The first proposition was proposed by N. S. Powell, Esq. N. S. Powell, Esq., J.P., proposed that W. J. Menzies, J. P. take the chair. Seconded by J. B. Burk and carried unani- mously.

The Queanbeyan Age FRIDAY, JULY 19th, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 19 July 1867
FRIDA Y, JULY 19th, 1867. Wa have frequently had the pleasing task of wreathing laurels to crown parlia mentary orators, in honour of the elo quence they have poured forth before the Legislative Assembly, in upholding the cause of freedom, or endeavouring to break the manacles of despotism, or loosen the galling chains of the oppressed. But there are occasions, and we are thankful to know they are very few and very far between, when we have to show up to a well discerning public, the trashy twaddle of some one or other of honourable mem. hers, with, a hope, that, by so blazing abroad their small-talk, we may teach such ones that " a still tongue makes a wise head." It is frequently the province of a reporter to make a good speech for a bad speaker, or correct any little lapsusi linguae that occasionally protrudes in the heat of a debate, when the speaker has waxed extra warm with the subject under discussion, or has not sufficiently arranged his words before he launches them forth t...
