Colonial Items. VICrORIA. Mr. Berry made a statement to the House in reference to thj Conference and the Reform Bills, the result of which had been to show that no common basis of ameement was dob Bible. That was evident after the first sitting: Ihe proceedings had been carried on with courtesy and calmly, and nothing bad been kH or done to increase the difficulty beyond tbe bet that it was found impossible to arrive at a common basis of agreement, as differences were found to be insuperable;- The Com dl had submitted a written document as to the terms of agreement which might almost be re garded as an insult | at any rate it was altogether inadmissable. The Council insisted on nothing beyond annual grants being placed in/ the Appropriation Bill and power given to the Council to object to any grant. The As sembly also put in a document, and finally mbmitf sd that tbe question of the two Bills be referred to a poll of the whole people, the decision to be final. This was refused. He r...

The Sprigs of -Myrtle. A DANISH ROMANCE/ The banns vrere pubnsned three times from the pulpit, the clergyman was 1-espoke, anil the bridal dress made. The marriage trousseau -was readv : it consisted of no very costly or splendid things, but every thread of it had passed through the mother's fingers, first on the spinning-wheel, land then through the loom. Many hours had been spun up, and many thoughts been woven into the modest marriage portion. The marriage day came, and the morning sun blazed on the windows of the widow's House. ' Everybody was up and doing. The old lady was already busy in j the kitchen, the young girl sat at tiie window gazing anxiously but happily down the road whence her bridegroom was to come. The three sisters were iviiig wide awake in their little cots ; they Lad hardly closed their eyes the whole | night, thinking on the splendour which the day was to bring. In the forenoon a young girl came down to the bride from the manor. It was the gr.rdener's daughte...

Parliamentary. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 November 1878

Parliamentary. The Legislative Council has read s first time the Supreme Court Reform Bill. A Select Committee was appointed consisting of the President and Hons. Morgan, Hay, Baker, amd Scott to consider the question of the best site for new parliament House, so we suppose that we shall shortly hear, the last of that affair. We hope that the Instititute foundatios will not be interfered with, and think that there could be easily found space in the South-east corner of the Government domain for new Parliament buildings. The Grange Railway Bill was, passed, and the Adelaide Sewers Bill passed through Committee as was also the   Holdfast Bay Railway Bill. In the Assembly the new Taxation aeWa- was submitted. We had hoped that the Bill would never see the light, and still hope that it will not pass, for it is ill conceived and iniquitous. We believe additional taxation is necessary both for revenue purposes and to re- adjust the incidence of taxation, but we have &...
