THE MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 18 August 1866
TIlE MAIL NEWS. We may fairly coelchdo that the Ellora's mail is but the first of a long series of thrillingly sensational budgets of foreign in telligence awaiting transmission to, these shores. Thie "dogs of' war" have once more been let loose in Europe to slake their thirst with human blood. A scourge, the most hideous and devastating which the Almighty ever employs to punish and cor rect mankind, has already commouced to speed over some of the ihirest pro vinces of the Continent. low long it will endure, or within what liinits it will be confined,, cannot at pres.ent be calculat ed with any degree of certainty; but a careful review of the position of events up to the departure of the mail has forced the convic tion upon us that it will embrace a wider zone and be prolonged for a longer period than at first sight appeared probable. For some years past the rulers of continental Europe have felt that the treaties of 1815 were powerless, and the necessity for. a re-. adjustment of t...

OUR REPRESENTATION : ITS FAULT AND REMEDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 18 August 1866
OUR REPRESENTATION: ITS FAULT ANDj REMEDY. Looking at the injury inflicted upon the colony by the retroga'de egislation of the last session of Parliament, it becomes a question of the highest importance whether means 'calnot be devised: that will ensure the return of a larger proportion of intelli gent and educated men than can possibly be expected to obtali seats in the Legislature under the present electoral system. The natural tendency of- all representative go vernment is towards collectiYe mediocrity; and, unfortunately, this teldency is grcatly strengthened in Victoria through the supreme power being vested in those classes who possess the least education, and who are therefore the most easily swayed by feelings of prejudice or passion. Every recurring election shoqws agrowing disinclination on the part of gentlemen whose position and quali fication point them out as the natural leaders of the people, to. allow themselves to be put in nomination for a seat iX lParliamennt.

MEMORANDA. We understand that a meeting of gentlemen is callcd by circulars for Wednesday evening, to, con sider the desirability of making some public recognition of the many valqable services which DMr. Cowderoy has conferred upon thlle borogh of St. Kilda.

On Tuesday evening last, Mr. Osbaldeaton, late of Ithe Davenport Brothers, gave his entertainment at the St. Kilda Town Hall under the patronage of 'Wv. Ford, Esq., the worshipful the mayor and others. Besides the " Rope Tying Illusion" the estertain ment consisted of a Polytechnic Display, and the exhibition of the "Talking Hand" both of which afforded considerable amusement; but Mr. Osbal deston astonished his audience most by the dexterity with which lihe freed himself in a very short time, without assistance, from a rope with which he had been bound hand and foot by a gentleman who was called from the body of the hall for that purpose. Air. Osbaldeston then bou...
