Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 25th July, 1856. PEACE AND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 25 July 1856

glantt #uar5jiaiit Friday, 25th July, 185G. PEACE AND WAR. Peace has been ratified and proclaimed. Every man possessed of a spark of philan thropy must rejoice at the termination of bloodshed and the restoration of peace. It must also be the heartfelt desire of all such, that the peace just proclaimed may be a lasting' peace. It is in the midst of peace the nations flourish. War is the enemy of progress—moral, social, and ma terial—everything- languishes in a country at war. Spasmodic efforts may occasio nally be made by the friends of progress, but "their best deeds are blighted by the pestilential blast of war, which causes a feeling- of despondency in one direction, and a thrill of exultation in another, among the various classes of the community. The excitement is fanned into a flame in order that the shattered ranks of the armies niay -be." speedily recruited; and thus> ■ while a .whole people is either mourning : the 'slaughter of friends or relatives, or •fired-with the de...

Mr. Gurney appeared for the defence. Police constable George being called and sworn, said in reply to the following question put by Mr. Gurney,—" You have sworn that he, (Mr. Hart) established a lottery " I did not swear that he es- tablished, but that he had it upon his premises." (In reply to the Bench.)— "Last Saturday night I was on duty, and heard money and dice rattling in Mr. Hart's shop, and afterwards heard it was a raffle. I could see into the shop, the door was open. I accordingly laid the in- formation." Mr. Gurney objected to this man's evi- dence entirely, as being worth nothing; declined to ask witness any questions.

It is no stretch of oyalty, or courtesy, to call tlie Princess Royal pretty. She is perfectly lonely. The regularity of her features is perfect. Iler eyes are large and full of intelligence; imparting- to her face that sort of merry aspect which indicates g'ood humor. The nose and mouth are delicately arid exqui sitely formed, the latter giving- the eftect of great sweetness. The Princess is more like her lather than her mother. She is like the Queen in nothing' but the nose. In all other respects she is a female iriiage of her father. I should add; ...

NEW GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 1 August 1856

NEW GOLD FIELDS, | Tlie intelligence respecting": the Hockey ; River' arid Stoney Creek gold, fields in ;New South Wales seems to have created some considerable excitement among the' i Victoria diggers. We find by the' sub joined' account that many from' this Golo 'ny had" already reached the new fields, and others were wending' their way tliither. But not at the gold fields only, but in Melbourne and other towns also, as we are informed, there is much talk on the subject; and though there is not exactly a gold mania, there is sufficient to justify the belief that the people are quite as ready to start away on the faith of float ing- rumors of rich finds of g'old, they know not where, as they were when gold was first discovered in the Colonies. We do not mean to say that the recent dis coveries in New South "Wales may not be as rich as reported; but men should wait for some evidence before starting oft' on a long, "perilous, and expensive journey. As yet there is not evidence suffic...
