OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 21 March 1857

OURSELVES. 'Our readers will surely pardon our making a few remarks on tlie subject of a report which lias, been industriously circulated to our prejudice. It has boen asserted in many quarters, and with all the hardihood which generally accompanies a ? groundless statement, that the Northern Times was about to cease its publication. So far from this being the case there has been held out to us every inducement to go on with its issue. The rapidity with which our subscription list ad vances, and tho strong approval so widely ex pressed of tlie open, unflinching, and honest spirit characters ng the opinions expressed in our co lumns, are, i.i themselves, sufficient guarantees that the Northern Times will take a permanent posi tion amongst the members of the Colonial Press.

THE SESSION AND ITS RESULT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 21 March 1857

THE SESSION AND ITS RESULT. The Session is over. The fun and frolic of the Legislature will close for a time, and the public will feel a want of its accustomed amusement. Farewell for a season the wit of Mr. Rusden. ? and the blunders of Mr. Holt and Mr. Campbell, and welcome for three or four months at least, dull newspapers. The weary reporters will not, at any rate, grumble at their dulness. The Ministry will hail the recess with feelings of unmixed joy. Every succeeding day their seats were becoming more unsteady under them. Now they will'have time to recruit, or at least, to retire from office without being actually kicked out. The petit Premier will now be able to pay more attention to his red tape and his neck-tie. The Attorney General will have more time to fill his own pockets and neglect the business of the state, which, Booth to say, that 'high-minded' individual is not backward in doing even now. His learned and nonchalant brother, Mr. Darvall, will experience a happy re...

PARLIAMENT PROROGUED. The Session has been brought at length to a close ; and the last scene ends with a grand dis play of ceremonials, to the great release of a ?thoroughly tired audience. The Speaker pom pously announces a. long list of what has-been a:complished — touohea lightly on the -omissions, land ends with a ministerial flourish 'of 'trumpets ; — next. follows the Governor's recognition of. the fgreat aer vices -performed by the Government, and, considering tlie flimsinesa -of the material to be T-worked upon, the most is made of it. A delicate allusion to the blunders and errors of the instal ment of Responsible Government serves as a happy prologue . to the itnperial theme.
