DECEMBER 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 December 1863
D)ECEM~BDER 1. The House went into committee of Ways and Means, when the adjourned debate on the financial resolutions of the Government was resumed by liMr. Cunncen, who showed that the pre sent Ministry, so far from carrying out the policy by which they profcss'ed to be actuated of reducing the public expendi ture, had very considerably increased the Estimates of their predecessors. The ex pense of Governmen t in this colony, he ob served, was most disproportionate. The M'ilistry had fileed in their undertalking of relrenclhment, and thle hlon. member pro . ceeded firthler to show tlhat tlhey hald sig nally failed to makle provision for the present financial emeirgeincy. ir. Lang reiterated some oljections pre v ly urged by him. r. Salnuel objected to tile tariff last ptioposed on the groe'd that it would fail to produce the anticipated revenuse, and that it was Iprotective in its clharaecter.

A NAME FOR THE COLONY. [TO THE EDITOR OF THE EMPIRE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 December 1863
A NAME FOR THE COLONY. [TO THE EDITOI OF TIHE EMPIRE.I Sss,--iIuelh has been said and written lately concerning the future name of this colony, but of the many names that have been proposed, there are none that, as yet, have uet with the entire approbation of the colonists; but I think that what I ams about to suggest cannot fail to coin cide with tlhe wishes of all. Our neigh )ours, in the application of their names, lave each bestowed a marked tribute of respect to loyallty, and I cannot see why this colony should be the only exception. Now, Sir, I would wish to suggest that, as the highest compliment this nation could bestow on the Prince and Princess of Wales, we should, in the event of re naming the colony, take that of Alex andra. Surely thiswould be a far better way of show-ing our respect, than all the congratulatory addresses that have been written and sent from this country. Tennyson, in hIis welcomem to Alc.xandra, has made use of tihe following lines: Saxos, or DaILn. or...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.; ·: DECOEMiBn 15. ' Mr. Eagar, in reply to Mr. Dangar, said that the Government had not made any ar rangements, with the Governments of Vic toria and Qucensland for the collection of the border dues. The House having gone into committco of Ways and Means, the adjourned debate on the financial proposals of the Govern ment was resumed by Mr. Cowper, who in veighed against the obstruction offered by the Ministerial party when in opposition to the course of public business, and parti cularly against the unfair and ungenerous conduct of the present Treasurer, whose vehement denunciation of him came with a bad grace from the hon. member after hav ing solicited him (Mr. Cowper) to take ollice under the new Administration. iHe charged that hon. member with having stated the public accounts in such way as to create a fhlse impression ; and with re ference to the unauthorised expediture, a point of which.so much had been made, lie showed- that the late Government had don...

THE AMERICAN STRUGGLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 December 1863
THE AMERICAN STrUGGLE. The circular of Mr. Seward to -the United States consuls in Europe, though characterised by all that intrepidity of statement, that arrogance of spirit, and that blustering language which mark the Yankee state-paper, is a little more modest than usual for Mr. Lincoln's se cretary. Mr. Seward no longer announces the extinction of the rebels within a cer tain stated period. Tile term of doom for the South has long expired. The "ninety days" have gone; .and the ana conda has finally slunk into its hole. The stern facts of the secession-the tremen dous nature of the struggle-tle doubt ful fortunes of the North, are at last ac knowledged by the Federalist statesman. Mr. Seward no longer makes light of the task which tie Union has before it. The battles of August, 1862, lie confesses, re suited in "severe and appalling reverses" to the Northern army. The remarkable change which has come over the spirit of Mr. Seward is best shown by the fact that the highest claim l...

DI)ECEMBlER 10.0 (Before Messrs Elyar nd and Mackay, J.P.'s) W. Staddon surrendered to his bail to answer the charge pree'rred nagainst him on the previous day. He was defended by Mr. Richards.

She had with Iher a small iathier ticuleh iin which was a onle lioidi 0ote : she left it in thle house ewhen she wsret out, and that on her return she missed it, and aecused Mrs. Staddon, aias Mrs. Willians, of taking it, which she stoutly denied.

AMERICAN NEWS. New York, 15th October. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 December 1863
* AMERICAN NEWS (Fro inthe Heraldl.) SNew Yoork, inth Octobe'r. On the 8th instant, General Lee's ai rmy, 90,000 stronig, crossed the lapidan; ina nm?avrning to turn the Federal rightwing.; There was:a cavalry engageient on.the 10th. The Federals were defeated, and retreated to Culpepper, arid thbnce across the Rappahannock, closely pursued. by the Confederates, who, dn.the 14th, at tacked their rear guard. The Federals then fell back on Fairfax to frustiate Lee's attempt to cut'them off frdm..Wash ington. Both armies were coifronting each other on Bull Run battle-field: A general engagement appeared imminent. The object of Lee's advance and Meade's refusal to accept battle forin the subject of much conjecture. The position of General Rosncianc in Tennessee is be comning critical. The *Confederates are concentrating artillery on MIission Ridge to shell Chattanoogaand operating:in all directions to intercept Rosenerans's com munications, in which they have suc ceeded; General Burnsid...
THE VINE IN FRANCE AND IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 December 1863
THE VINE IN PRANCE AND IN AUSTR!ALIA. A correspondent of the Geolong jour nal on the above subject has the follow ing sensible remarks: I venture to assert tlhat there is not a plant which the Englishman cultivates more easy of managoment than tile vine, and a dullard indeed nmust be the man who during the period which el:apscs be tween planting his cuttings and his first vintage, (some three or four years) cannot pick up from observation of his vine growing neiglhbors suflicient knowledge to enable him to train and worlk his own vineyard as well as if he had been " to tile manner born." But once more, the experience of the first wine country in the word comes to his aid and should be attended to: "Everywhere the plant bhs been im. proved by grafting," that is the common rough sorts; the varieties cultivated for brandy have been replaced by grafting the smaller bearing, but more valuable kinds on their stocks. Of course, beginners have the dvmantage of unlimited choice, and they wil...
JOHN STUART MILL ON PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 22 December 1863
JOLHN STUIAT .M~ILL ON PRO TECTION. From Book V;, OCITA?TER IV., SECTION 5-" One of the conunonest oases of discriminating duties, is that of a tax'on the importation: of a commodity capable of being produced at home, unaccoai panied by an equivalent tax on the home production. A commodity is never por manently importced, unless it can be obtained from ibroitd at a smaller cost of labour and capital, on the whole, than is necessary for producing it. . If, there fore, by a duty on.tbo importation, it is: rendered cheaper to produce the article than to importit, an . extra qunantity of labour and capital is exponded .without any extra result. The lbouri' is useless, and thie capital is spent in paying people for laboriously doing nothing. All cus tom duties which operate as an encourage. ment to the home production of the taxed article, are thus an eminently wasteful mode of raising a revenue." From Book V., CIA,'TERl TIV., SEC. TIrO 6.--" Duties oi importation then miay be divided in...
