RIFLE CORPS. THE TRUE PEACE LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 7 March 1860
RIFLE CORPS. THE TRUE PEAOE LEAGUE. rFReo ToIE TI?IES.] COLONEL WiLFORD the other day, in delivering a lecture on musketry practice, described our Rifle Volunteers as "the true Peace League," and never in the whole course of his'service did that gallant officer sent a shot more truly to the mark than when he hit upon that designation. The very object of ousr present armaments is to torenider invasion iinppssible, and, as for any aggressive movement ''on our part, the known sentiments of the entire nation on the subject of war ae sufficient to forbid suspicion. We are thinking of self-defence, and of that only ; but, as we have now fairly taken the business in hand, we shall make clean work of it once and for all. For many years we lived under an im pression that the days of European war had gone by, and that we were justified in devoting ourselves to the pursuits of peace, witheut ap presion of attack or disturbance. Those ideas have been rather rudly dispelled, and, though we are c...

DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) &nbsp; SHELLHARBOR. The meeting for the purpose of petitioning the Legis- lature to adopt measures for the improvement of the harbor of this place, took place in accordance with the advertisement which appeared in your columns, yesterday (Thursday) evening. The attendance was more select than numerous. - W. Wilson, Esq., was called to the chair, and in his &nbsp; usual eloquent style, introduced to the consideration of the meeting the importance of the matter which they had met this evening to deliberate upon.

EXTRAORDINARY CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 March 1860
EXTRAORDtIARY CURE.-The case of the unfortunate man Bowen, who was so barbarously wounded by his mate with an axe, at the Mia Mia, is likely to be an object of public interest for a long time to come. He was wounded on the 21st November, and has been incessantly and carefully tended ever since. He is now getting on favorably. The wound in the chest, where the ribs weretdivided by the axe, and the heart exposed to view, is now completely healed, the only ill effects 'remaining beinga slight paralytic affection of the corresponding arm. The brain exposed by the removal f a portion of the skull, which was cut off by a blow of the axe, is oi ly filmed over with a thin skin, and al though the pulsation of the brain is plainly visible, yet the skin acts as a protection from the air. It is intended shortly to place a silver plate over the hole in the skull, so as to protect the brain from any contact with foreign sub stances, a very slight touch of which might be mortal. The opening in the...
THE DISCIPLINE OF THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 10 March 1860
TIIE DISCIPLINE OF THE NA TY. (rOMl THE rATURDAY REVIEW.) ALL the changes which have been made of late years in the discipline and regulation of the army and navy have been in one direction. Al most every fresh order which has been issued has:been designed to remove some needless an noyance to which sailors or soldiers were sub jected, or to improve their lot by providing them with the means of reasonable enjoyment and comfort. In the army,. there are schools, and lectures, and games, to occupy the spare time of the men; and in food, in clothing, and in bar rack accomm'odation some improvement takes place every year. Irksome regulations have been at the smne' time modified, and discipline has gained by the change. In the navy, there has been an 'equal disposition to improve the condition of the men. If any little grievance about the nie`s'b kits or traps, or any detail of their daily fife. is complained of, parliament at once votes the'money which may be neceesary to redress it.. In...

THE LATE T'OM.1!AS DE QUIYCRY. ((ROM THE BoffTiERN CRoss.) Br. telegram..from the mail steamer Northam; published, in' the Sydney Morning Herald intimation was made of the death of. Mr. De .. Quincey. The mightiest master of th, ldglishlanguage, and one of the mightiest masters of style-i?aany language, has pissed away. All the.opium excesses of his youth, and the unapn: peased-and pursuing griefs and misfortunes of his life, ,aotwithstanding, the small frail, world-worn organisation-" Life in its house of bones," with that thin, luxuriously sweet voice which R.:P. Dillies said, " seemed as if it came out of Dreamland," has survived to an age far beyond that allotted usually to the sons of men. To us personally;-who are under intellectual obligations to Mr. De Quincey's writings, greater than we owe to any modern author,-the intelligence was literallya shock. The great critic said, in his earlier papers on Wordsworth, in Tail's AMagazine :-in one of those sentences no man but De Qui...
