THE SOPHISTICATIONS OF BRANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
TILE SOPHISTICATIONS OF BRANDY.-I was just about to say that the article I held was a little Cognac brandy, so .called from the village of Cognac, on the river f.Charente, in the king dom of France.; that it was an alcoholic fluid distilled from grapes-a method discovered some time in the twelfth.. century, and first made known to the world in the beginning of the thir teenth by Raymond Lully; though it was sup posed that the Arabs bad the secret of distilla tion some hundreds of years before, making use of it to obtain the perfumes of flowers, this being one of the most ancient records of perfumery. All this I was about to tell Biggs, but he wouldn't give me a chance. He took a long swallow of the fluid he held; in a critical way, smacking his lips, and making afterwards a strange, wry face, went on :-" Are you aware that not one per cent. of all the liquor sold as brandy in this country is not really brandy ? Do you know that we pay French distillers at Lyons and Marseilles, to sa...
SPAIN AND MOROCCO. FOUR HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SPANIARDS KILLED AND WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
SPAIN AND MOROCCO. FOUR HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SPANIARDS KILLED AND WOUNDED. TIsE Empire extracts the following from the Times of 3rd December :-The Spaniards and the Moors have commenced their struggle. Three encounters have already taken place be tween them. The first was not attended by any severe casualty, as only one man of the Spanish army was hurt. In the second combat the casualties were greater, as seven Spaniards were killed and about thirty wounded. The third battle-fought on Friday week-appears to have been of a desperate character. The Moors, who were more than 4,000 strong, at tacked the Spanish redoubt before Serallo, near Ceuta, and was completely defeated. Details are yet wanting, but a telegram from Madrid informs us that the Spaniards had eighty men killed and 400 wounded, and that losses of the Moors were " heavy." " They retired," says General Echaqus's dispatch, " leaving the field of battle strewn with dead." Private accounts from Madrid, of the 27th November, sta...
THE NEW REFORM BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
THE NE J lREFORKf BILL. (Fensb THE TI?IES, DEC. 9.) CONSIDERING that Parliamentary Reform was the engine by which Lord Derby's Govern. ment was ejected from power, and that it is the avowed business of the next Session to deal with this question in all its bearings, there seems wonderfully little anxiety on the part of the public to eater into the consideration of the question. Cabinet after Cabinet is held, and yqet people do not even take the trouble to spe euilite as to the results of these important de liberations. The most barefaced cases of corrup tion are displayed before the public eye by Parliamentary Commissioners with a wearisome and revolting monotony, and yet no one comes forward to tell us that; if we would only adapt his nostrum, the excesses of Gloucester and Wakefield would be rendered for ever impossible. It is really almost incredible to one who atten tively watches the present state of thepublic mind that little more than six months ago every constituency in the ...

LAST MONDAY'S MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
LAST ,MONDAY'8 M?EETING. lTss Meeting last Monday, held for the purpose .of giving expression and -shape to the feeling of sympathy for our neighbours at Shoalhaven, under their severe trials :and losses by'the late floods, was not as well attenfied as such gatiher ings in Kiama usually are, but the thinness of the nunibers, is -attributaible to the unsettled state d the weather, and the fearful condition of the roads, which have been rendered almost impassable in some places by the continued rains.

RESIGNATION OF THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
RESIGNATION OF THIE MINISTRY. WE learn from. Yesterday's Herald, that on Thursday morning, Mr. FORSTER waited upon the GOVERNOR-GENERAL, and tendered the re signation of of his Ministry. It appears that the Honorable gentleman offered no advice to His EXCELLENCY on the appointment of their successors, but after accepting the resignation, His EXCELLENCY stated to MRt. FORSTER his intention of " sending for" SIR DANIEL CoOPER. Sin DANIEL was away to Brisbane Water, and a messenger was sent to him, but his answer could not be known until yesterday, (Friday). It was however, supposed that he would accept the commission, and at once asked MR. MARTIN to take the ATTONNEY-GENERAL SmIP. Should Mr. M. consent, Ma. HAY and Ma. JoNEs would most likely be asked to join, but some doubts are entertained whether such a contribution would secure the support of a ma jority in the Assembly, as some of the recog nised leaders of the opposition, surprised and disconcerted at not being called by "His EX...

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. GERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. (FRno OUR CoRnsroS ENTS.) GERRINGONG. It is commonly said that tihe stn is the best road maker in Australia, if so, then his friendly beams would be most welcome here, for the long continuance of "soft weather" has given us soft roads. The high road is hbad but the bhe-roads baffllo description. It is difficult for horses to travel on them : impossible for bullock teams or anything in the shape of a voehicle. The Gcr ringong Improvement Committee of the Municipal Coun cil seem very tardy about handing in their promised report, and delay is making matters 1n.?.o. One effect of the constant wet is that the snakes seemn to be ineom moded by the damp of their dwellings and so become unbidden guests to umuan habitations. I have heard of two more eases besides tmhe one mentioned in my last. One of tihe intruders was a largo brown snake, nearly six feet long, in thle house of Mr. Milligan.

VOTE OF CENSURE ON THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 March 1860
VOTE OF CENSURE ON TIlE MINISTRY. (FROM THE E.rIRE.) Mn. FoasTru has now realised the hitter conse quences of his unendurable egotism and self-conceit. Refusing to accept the constittutional verdict pro= nounced against him, by resigning the power that he could no longer use with honor to himself or safety to the public, he has notv to submit to a vote as degrading as any that could possibly be passed upon a minister. The effect or the resolution car ried on Wednesday night, is not only a severe censure on the Governor's advisers, but an appeal to the Governor-General himself to remove them. Ministers of the Crown have ordinarily the feel ings of gentlemen, instinctively' known when the moment has arrived for them to retire or forfeit their political honor. Rarely indeed has any British Parliament witnessed the spectacle of men presuming to govern the country, refusing to retire or to appeal to the people when out-voted on their mensicres, and finally ejected,. neck and heels, in sp...
