DANGEROUS CONDITION OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian and Queensland General Advertiser — 24 June 1862
DANGEROUS CONDITION OF FRANCE. (From the TahUtA Tbe Emperor and his Ministers are Cully aware of the dangerous condition of France, and must be presumed to be prepared for all consequences. Between LiUe and Rouen a million of operatives are in want of bread. The distress is extreme. Dut the thermome ter and barometer are now the statesman's chief study. The next harvest is a question of life and death, if not for prance and society, at least for the dynastv. In another f.-.rtni.sht we shall know' what the prospects arc. A bad or scanty harvest, involving an expenditure of some £20,000,000 would bring to a fearful climax tbe present diffi culties of the trading and manufacturing interests. A social upheaving might easily ensue, that would subvert everything. In such a ease resistance being impossible, a diversion would be the only chance. But the only possible diversion would be a foreign war, pretexts for which are abundant if they were necessary. But if in a fortnight or a month, t...

THE ELECTORAL [?] [Newspaper Article] — North Australian and Queensland General Advertiser — 24 June 1862
THE-ElXCTOnAl-snrA. - - Sis, — In the Courier x report of the proceed ings of the Legislative Assembly on the 1st May last year, I and that the Colonial Se cretary stated that ' the present law, in his opinion, gave the privilege of voting to every man wtio chose to obtain it, and Iiu did not sec that creator freedom could be accorded.' In fact, last year, when the artful aud un scrupulous dodge by which he secured his own seat for tliu Leicbhardt was fresh in his memory, lie did not scruple to avow that there was no necessity for the restoration of the franchise which had been abrogstca by die bungling interpretation of tlie Ordersin Council, so long as any man cor.ld obtain the Hme right by chicanery. This year, however, a change has come o'er the spirit of his dream; and although the remarks made by him in proposing the second read ing of die Electoral Belorm Sill, display the came political turpitude, the occasion for displaying it is one of a diametrically opposite character: f...
