FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 18 June 1864
FRANCE. The authorities have. prohibited a special performanc at the Porto St. Martin (ifamlet, Elilstaj; and Zeo Songe d'uns nult d'ete), which was advertisod for Shakespearo's birthday. Referring to this extraordinary act, the Paris correospondent of the Globe writes: All our evening journals dwell on the strango prohibition launched against any Shlakeospearo banquet, French or British. The grand hotel has been notified to refuse accommuodation to the intended banquoters, nor is the ghost of any State reason forth coming for this coup d'etat. An insurrectionary movemuent has taken place in the division of Oran, Algoria. A company of reonch troops lhad been attacked by the Arabs, and, ttmong others, threoe of ti?he officers wore killed. Suficient forces woro sent south to restore order.

RECOVERY OF MUNICIPAL RATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
IRECOVERY OF ItUNICIPAL HATES. (Prom the S. M. Iratld.) A JvUno.e r of great importance was pronounced in tile Supreme Court on Tuesday. The greatest difliculty in working municipal councils, created under tho Act of 1868, has boon that of gotting in the rates. It has boeen assumed, almost from the first, that this could only be done by distress warrants. Now, the Act in question, while it gives a clear power to issue these warrants, mahoes no provision for payment of costs by the de fiaulter. And, as if this cause of embarrassment wits not enough, the rcmsdy by distress, has booeen wholly powerless against non-resident landholders who neglected or refused to pay. The municipal council of Wollongong has tried the short mode of suing its ratopayors for their arrears before the justices in potty sessions, sitting uudor the 10th Victoria No. 10, as a small debts court. One of the persons thus sued (named Back houso) has applied to the Supreme Court to set aside, by writ of prohibition,...
FLOOD AT COLLECTOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
FLOOD AT COLLECTOR. (From the orrspcondent of th?e Quanbeab n Age.) I 0hAn say that from tile various reports you are doubtless receiving from sourrounding distriets, you are led to exclaim, with Coloridgo's Ancient Mariner--" WoVter, water, overywhere." Bo this nas it may, I am strongly reminded of that quotation, as I attempt briefly to describe the disastrous floods which have just visited Collector, leaving indelible marks of its fury. The weather which has formany weeks past booeen unusually dry, changed on Friday the 10th instant, when ramin sot in, at first lightly, but towards thu approach of night there wore indica tions of a heavy faihll, but no one looked for a flood. From Friday night, however, till Saturday night, it continued pouring heavily. On Sunday morning all the flirts, north and south of us, as far as the sye could reach, wore one shoot of foaming water. Rain still continued to fall until about 2 p.m., when the flood had attained its highest mark. By this time t...

FLOOD AT QUEANIEYAN. ,From 0the O"eano/an A.e.) TR honavy rains reported last week to have fallen in other parts of the colony, visilted ns last Satnrdlay and Sunday, canuing a high fresh in the river. The water rose rapidly at 9 a.m. on the latter day, and continuod rising nearly two feoot an hoor; and at nightfall was twenty-frvo or thirty foot above its ordinary lovel-the highest flood known to have visited us since the miomorahle GOndragaln flood. The 3lolonglo rose morn rapidly than the Quenanboyan, artd below the junction of the two rivers, the flood was considerabnhly higher. The mails have been con Rnoquently oseriously donelayed.

To the Editor of the Herald and Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
eo tc Editlor of tho Heralht anod Clronrlc. flo,-If any thing were watitled to prove the utter folly and waste of public money on the part of government, the late flood has fqlly demonstrated it, by carrying away the bridge built a short time since over the ~VWollondilly at Marsden's Crossing-place. No doubt a permanent means of communication bo tween Goulburn and the extensive districts to the north of it should be constructed; but experienco points out the fact that no permanency can be ex pected by building a bridge in such a position as to be under water when any fresh takes place in the river. There is nothing like experience for teaching even feools wisdom; but of the folly of a government making experiments similar to the above, we have ample illustration in the bridge referred to. It is to he hoped that the blunder of reconstructing it will not be committed, as it will only serve (for a short time) as a stanuing memorial of what self-interest aided by the favoritism of obtus...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
T?IE amount of damage done to our roads and bridges by the recent flood, and the delay thereby occasioned in communicating with the neighboring districts, may naturally lead to a few thoughts on the subject. VWe havo found ourselves entirely cut off from communication from the country bo yond the WVollondilly, notwithstanding that two bridges hlave boon erected across the river. In dry weather thero hais never beeoon any difficulty in crossing either at Baw Baw, or at MIarsden's Crossing-place. During even moderate floods tile bridge at the latter ihas boon usoless-the bridge at faw fBaw lhas always boon so, since it has required a scaling ladder to enable i foot passenger to got to the so-callodroadway! ]Joth bridges are now materially-perhaps irreparably injured. Tihe construction of a thirdbridgo, for which money has beeoon voted by parlia mont, lieas not boon commenced, or it would probably have shared a similar fate. Thuis it appears tlhat tihe governument build bridges which c...
TARLO. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
TAULO. (From olr corrraeondent.) 8Imc. my communication respecting the lote flood, I have ascertained that many of the settlers have ex. porienced very heavy losses, as in addition to the inmenso quantities of fencing destroyed, as well as produce either swept away or damaged, the des truction on a large extent of wheat land is very great, I have heard of one person who has lost nbout 80 acres, others smaller quantities; whilo the number of those who have escaped lossois easily reckoned, not having heard of a single individual who has not been a sufferer to a greater or less ex tent. Where losses have been so general, it would appear almost superfluous, as well as invidious, to particularize. The wvaters are gradually, but very slowly subsiding, disclosing on all sides the teriblo havoc they have occasioned. Tarlo, Friday, 17th June, 1864.

DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO ROB A BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
DESPERATE ATTEIMPT TO ROB A BANK. (From the .telbou?r~e Argus). TaE inhabitants of Collingwood wore thrown into a state of great excitement by a report, which spread rapidly, about eleven o'clock on Tuesday morning, to the effect that the bank (London, Scottish, and Australian Chartered) at the corner of George and Gertrude streets, had boeen stuck-up by several armed men, that a desperate struggle had taken place, and that one of the robbers had been wounded, captured, and consigned to the lock-up. Gertrude-street was 00on in a state of extreme commotion. The bank Which was the scene of the outrage was visited by ?C?wds of people, ewho appeared to regard it as satisfactory to their curiosity to stand about in the ront looking at the walls and closed door of the building. The most " sensation" version was the 0a0 most readily believed, and a narration of the affair which did not represent at the least one or two oersoos as killed, received no credence whatever. t Was variously estat...
NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND, June 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
NE\V ZEALAND. (From, the Correypontdnlt of the a. JA. HeIald.) AuctKLaNu, Juno 8. DULLNESS seems to have taken possession of our province in matters military during the last fort night. Not a sign of lilfo do the troops show be yond eating the largo quantity of provisions which are taken from Auckland, marked " VWaikato," day by day. The natives, too, and with better reason, are quiet, for they kItnow that to tire us out is their hopo, just as we know that to follow them up is the only way we can hope to conquer them: the only diflereoco is that they not only know, but practise while we are content to know, and not to practise. No saying was ever more true than ono I read but lately in your columns-that Now Zealand has boon cursed by party strife; and at the present mo meont I have not a doubt the best interests of the colony are being sacrificed to tbohe same cause. The present ministry went in upon the express undortanding that they were an emergency minis try, purpoosely nolected...
SYDNEY SUMMARY. MONDAY afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle — 22 June 1864
SYDNEY SUIMARY. MoNoAY afternoon. As yeou are aware, parliament has been prorogued till the 2nd Auguost. Little general interest seems to hobe taken and little speculation indolged withl respect to the programme to be brought down by government. I believe it will be found that tlhe hints I gave a week since will be found pretty near the truth so far as they go-which certainly is not very far. The faict is that Martin and Co. are not our rulers at all-it is a mistake to suppose that they are. The government of the country is really in the hands of Augustus Morris, William Maclcay, Isaaes, and the party they represent. In the meantime the Cowper party has literally fallen to pieces. Mr Cowper might come down to the Assembly and move the most reasonable of reso lutions, backed by arguments the most convincing, and there would scarcely be a quorum to listen to .him. The blackguardism of some of the newer members, who are utter 'strangers to the feelings and the company of gentlemen, is ...
