NEWS BY THE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 17 November 1866

NEWS BP THE MAIL. By the ratificaion of treaties between Austria and Prussia, and Prussia and the Minor German Etates, the clangour of arms has once more been hushed on the Continent, and the European horizon "cleared of all menacing eventualities." Such, at least, is1 the view enunciated by the French Emperor, and almost universally adopted by the English Press. We most sincerely pray that he may be correct, and that the Old World may now enjoy a pro found' and lasting peace; but, glancing at the re-constructed map of Europe frlom our far-off view-point,'with the total overthrow of the Pontifical 'and MIahomedan thrones looming in the distance, we must confess that we are a little sceptical upon the matter. IIuman nature is not yet sanctified; 'the thirst for power and revenge still rankles ewithin it; asd it is in the very fact that an "irresistible power," causing the disappear ance of minor states, " and impelling peoples to unite themselves in great masses," that we detect a gr...

SHALL ST. KILDA HAVE AL NEW TOWN HALL.? "To be or not to be, lthat is the question." - HawLsr. The subject of a new town-hal for St. Kilda is once more on the tapis, to the con sternation of those who wish thin s to re main as they are. It was fondly imagined that when the unquiet spirit was last laid in the council chamber it was disposel of for a long time to come. But, like Banquo's ghost, it is continually reappearing in some unexpected quarter, shaking its "gory locks." It is a most persistent ghost, and obstinately refuses to be pooh-poblted.' It has got it into its head that a new town hall on asuitable site is, if not an actual necessity, so very like one as.to be scarcely distinguishable therefrom. And: it has furthergot it into its head that a majority of the inhabitants are of its way ofl thinking. Therefore, it objects to being quitly "put away" by a vote of a majority of tle council only, but asks that the opinion ol' the rate payers should be taken as well. If that is ...

THE ST. KILDA BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 24 November 1866

THE ST. KILDI BENCH. The administration of justice should,like CafePr's wife, be above suspicion. It is not enough that its dispensers actually do no. wro:ng from the judgment seat--they should so act as not to give the slightest ground for the belief that they are no.t i.prtial. They must avoid the v:ery appearance of evil. This applies equally to the lowest as to the highest of our temples ofjustice--to Petty Seosions as much as to the Suproneo Court. It i/i a high standard of excellence to set up, perhaps not always possible of attain t?e'i. But any falling short thereof is looll:ed upon withi jealous eye by Britons. The. embodiment of their ideal ofjustice as a feo'ale draped in a robe of purity, with her eyeit bandaged, and holding the balances equal, is indicative of their deep love of what is known popularly as "fair play.." Tried by t;his standard, we fear some recent acts of the St, Kilda Bench 'of magistrates. must he Iondemned, though we scarcely think they fairly subject...
