The North Australian. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 1 December 1863
TUESDAY. DECEMBER I. 1863. Orm contemporary, the Northern Argus, has on various occasions de voted a portion of its space to a review of a scheme of Parliamentary represen tation published in our leading columns. However much we may differ from oar contemporary in. his_Dolitical formula. it cannot effect our appraiaiaMNPthe excellent and courteous spirit in which be conducted his criticism. This same spirit is of so rare oocarrence nowa days, that its appearance is well de serving ofnote and approval, from what ever may*be the source from whencm so commendable and truly wise a proce- ! dure may spring. The contrast to such ; conduct presented by writers, who see every argument of an antagonist through a veil of prejudice and deny all merit to those who differ with them, not on the merits of any separate sub ject, but on the general ground of dif ference is so humbling a reflection to I all who pursue the career of journalism j with any more exalted idea than that of J lucre, as to m...

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 1 December 1863
3STOXJES -cVCTJD NtiWS. In our issue of the 24st or November, under heading ' Notes ana News,' appeared some amusing reminiscences of ? recontre at the City TOne Vaults, between a gentleman of sity. HU value as the type of a class which should not be allowed to emigrate and of which, nnfortnnatcly, we have already re ceived too many samples, led to his receiv ing a distinction by appearing in any por tion of our columns, unless that devoted to Police, which we should otherwise have hesitated to accord to him. When penning the particulars it never occurred to the writer that there was a possibility that Mr. \f. G. Short, the energetic agent of the well known G. Boirer, gas engineer and. con tractor, of the Tulani Iron Works, might be confounded with the nameless individual. Having since learned that Mr. Short has been qnixzed on the subject, we desire to destroy the chance of mistake by declaring that that gentleman was not our casual acquaintance of tbe Tanlts. Indeed we think it im...
