EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
EUROPE. There was much political uneasiness on the Continent. In Paris seventeen editors have been prosecuted for illegally reporting a. de bate in the Legislature. Rouher asserted that France would, never allow Italy to seize Rome. The Italian Ministry had resigned on a vote of want of 'confidence, and Menabzea had been instructed to form a new Cabinet. At the latest date (iJanunry 14) there were increasing indications of the maintenance of a friendly understanding between France and Prussia. Menabrea urged concrd. The dangers of Italy now are chiefly those arising from financial difficulties.
BRUTAL EXHIBITIONS IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
BRUTAL EXHIBITIONS IN LONDON Mit FRANK.BUCKLAND gives the following description- of she extraordinary perform ances of the latest candidates for public .favour in the way of amusements In Lon don. The entertainment in question proved a success in Paris-a fact which goes far to prove, that they are not wrong who maintain that the vices of the original Lower Empire are being steadily reproduced under the modern French regime. The relationship between cruelty and lust is perhaps the only moral that can be extracted from the writ ings of our " youngest poet," Swinburne; and it would seem that the Parisian appe tite, palled with erotic ministrations, is "be ginning to demand the stimulus of exhibi tions that involve pain. W c(Australasian) ,may congratulate ouriiselves .in this colony that we are at present satisfied w~iti' refined, or at least innocent recreation.i This is Mr Bucklanid's account of what he saw in Lon don, on November 12 , ..

THE TASMANIAN PRESS ON PRINCE ALFRED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
THE TASMANIAN PRESS ON PRINCE ALFRED. (From the Cornwall ChronTie..) WITH exquisite tact the Prince has neither made himself too cheap nor assumed too high a tone for one in his exalted position. He has blended the suaviter in modo with the fortiter in re in a manner which must have satisfied even Lord Chesterfield, the standard British Mentor. But his great crime is that he has not singled out for special notice and favour certain individuals who, in their own ebtimation, are giants of erudition, and walking encyclopedias of all the conventional properties. We don't be lieve that either the Lords of the Admiralty or her Majesty are likely to reprimand Captain the Duke of Edinburgh, on his re turn home, for this lack of omniscience, and we are not aware that his Royal Highness is responsible to any other powers on earth than these for his acts. To expect him to gratify the self-importance and selfish whims of all who come, or desire, to come in con tact with him, is to expect what n...
DOCKING THE GALATEA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
DOCK1ING THE GALATBA. (From he S?M. Ileral.) IN onr issue of Saturday we merely `men tioned that H.M.S. Galatea had been safely docked. We are now in a position to give our rcaders a fuller description of this im portant operation. On the morning of Monday, the 3rd instant, Commodore Lambert informed Captain Banks (representative of Mr John Cuthbert) that it was decided the Galatea should be docked, and as she was drawing too much water, instructed him to make the necessary arrangements for lightening her, &c. And here we may mention as an evi dence of the immediate resources of Port Jackson, that, by five o'clock of the same day, a hulk of 1000 tons register was lashed alongside the Galatea ready to re ceive cargo. This hulk was the dismantled ship Golden South, owned by the Bulli Coal Company, and which has for months past loomed so large, as she lay at her moorings in Darling Harbour, but alongside the Galatea seemed so small as to forcibly impress the mind with the enorm...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
TO TUE EDITOR. Sir,-In your last issue you gave a faithful and correct report of a circumstance which occurred in Qucanheyan during the week-an affair which will not be forgotten in a hurry. And why.? For this reason i That it inflicted an injury on society. It has taught men who were ready and willing to endanger life and health to save and serve their fellow heing, that there is such a thing as wanton, trifling with sympathy-that there is presumptuous behaviour and ungenerous conduct can be found where better things might and should be expected. And you, sir, as an editor, a man, and a Christian, have not es 'caped the tongue of those who should in common decency hold their peace. You were found fault with for publishing the names of the parties concerned. Well, what it you did? or, rather, what if you didn't? I, for one, and many others would unhesi tatingly have branded you as a most partial journa list, and entirely unfit for your office. There would certainly have been some pr...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
O ofr~p otudqncc TO TUE EDITOR. Sar,-I have been highly amused on seeing a para graph in the columns-of your contemporary, the S?hocilhadev News, to'the effect that any publlcteacher found to :e guilty of corresponding anonymously to the . newspaper press will be dismissed the service; at the same time not the least particle of authority Is give dfor such an smportant announce iuent. i Very recently a newspaper (or periodical) has been started in Sydney under the very notice of the Council of Education, and it is very improbable that the usual rule will be departed from of anony mous contributions The teachers of the colony are generally men of refined tastes and babits,' and oing to reverses to be found in life have no doubt settled :themselves down to a retiring habit from" the more busy scenes of life. These teachers are known to be men capable of writing upon any subject of interest to the advancement of society, and after the hours devoted to their labours in a schoolroom gladl...

SLAVERY IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 15 February 1868
SLAVERY IN QUEENSLAND. CIRCUMSTANCEs- are constantly cropping out in Queensland, in spite of all efforts at concoalment, which show conclusively that the position. of the imported South Sea Islanders there is that of slaves, whatever name they may be called by for the sake of preserving appearance. A case of kidnapping came before the Rock *hampton Bench on the 21st ultimo, in which a man named Tancred was charged with stealing a South Sea Island boy: from his''"lawful owners,"-wo quote the words of the witnesses in the case-and selling him for the sum of £2. The boy was fully identified by the brands on his body, like any other animal-although it was contended for the defendant that "tho'e brands were wrong," and that, therefore, the identity was not proved. The following report of the case is abridged from the Rockhampton Bulletin of the 23rd ultimo : POLICE COURT, ROCKIHIAMPTON.-TUESDAY, JANUARY 21. (Before the Police Magistrate.) Arthur Percy Gossett summoned John Tancred for em...

S THE .FLIRtT. Now strike the harp-strings to a serious song, One sharp and bitter, hut by no means long; And thou, my blushinglMnse, whoo'er thou are, -Lead gentle o'er meo while sing my part! (This silly invocation being done, Let us proceed :: the Poem is begun.) Can he, who lately in his fluent lay Sang of Flirtation's pleasures, can he say A Flirt deserves our love or our esteem, False as a shadow, Ihithless as a dream ? Versed In the knowledge both of life and law, 1He knows too well the character I draw See o'e soeine 3Mirro's bright reflecting glass Face after face in quick sum:c:.cion pass; See ocean's summer wave willh wanton lip Caress the prow of cacti advunlung ship: Such is a Flirt! Her shallow heart receives Each swilttimpresslon, which as swiftly leaves; While others come to take the vacant place, And thus keep up the nurer-endig .race. Her fickle soul read in her wandering eye; And, as the laugh and careless jest go by, M'ark how the love-glance ained at one alone, ...
