WATER COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864

/WATER COMMISSION. Tem citizens of Brisbane have been guilty once more of a most odious vul garity. They have had an Indignation Meeting, in whioh even the bubbling echo of Mr. Petbte could provoke no discord. They have most unmiBtake ably declared their approval of the course taken by the Municipal Council with reference to the much talked-of Water Commission, and they have de clared that they will pay nothing to wards its expenses, and concur in no action over which their representatives have not a fair share of control. And, in 60 doing, they acted calmly, temper ately, and decidedly. Not the least re markable feature in the proceedings was Mr. Hbmslajst's forcibly expressed regret that he had been one of the two hundred who dace believed in Mr. Herbebt, and had endeavoured to j secure his return. !But then Mr. HehhaKt has nothing to get from the Government. He does not bang about their offices for the stray crumbs of itinerant contracts. He has not the ghost «of .» chance even o...

FRENCH POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864

FRENCH POLICr. These is an item in our Continental news, published iu this day's issue, pregnant with deep import to the civilised world. The Emperor Napo ijeon is about to lay before the French Senate and Chamber of Deputies, an exposition of the Home and loreign policy of France. An important docu ment of this nature, promised in the menacing juncture of circumstances that surrounds the diplomatic relation ships of the Crowned heads of Europe, will attach to its publication mingled anticipations of dread and hope, just as bellicose or pacific measures may be propounded. The con centrated energies of France has prepared it for Peace or War. The Emperor has consolidated the vast resources of French enterprise, and furthered, though not completed, the aspirations of Napoleon the First. In its external regulations ?»nd domestic reforms, gigantic strides have been made under the present dynasty, whilst constant success has attended its foreign policy. The whilom adventurer has consolid...

THE COMMISSION OF THE PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864

THE COMMISSION OF THE PEACE. A Supplement to the Government Gazette published yesterday, is devoted to the names and addresses of the in dividuals in the Commission of the Peace for 1864. The short time we have had the document before us, has enabled us to do little beyond compiling a list of the recent appointments and of the names that either by death, resig nation, removal from the colony, or by supercedas have disappeared from the Commission. Giving precedence to the new dig nitaries.

He had no doubt that the question which they had met to consider, would be treated by the meeting in a temperate and credit able manner. He called on Mr. Pugh to move the first resolution. T. P.

THE SITE FOB A CONVENT AND OBPHANAGE AT IPSWICH The Petition which we append from the Bight Bev. Dr. Quinn, on behalf of himself and the Catholics of Ipswich, bears out the material points in the statement already made by us in relation to the non-completion of the purchase. It is not possible, that after verifying the petition by enquiries that the Executive will refuse to cure the defect caused by the Telegraph Department As alleged in the petition, had the telegraph service been porformed by a company, an action would have lay against the company for damages for neglect; and we are not sure that the same process conld not be adopted as against the Government, But whether that be or be not the case, equity requires that the prayer of the petition should be respected and com plied with. If the non-delivery of the tele gram was caused by individual neglect, then let the punishment fall on the person guilty of the neglect ; bnt if, as has been suggested, the delay has been caused by ...

CHRISTMAS EVE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864

CHRISTMAS EVE. How potent are early associations in deter mining individual character? Great Bri tain — the pioneer and rearguard of civilisa tion and progress — perpetuates her social institutions throughout the wide wide world, irrespective of climate and the general auxi liaries of her own highly favoured soil. Christmas Eve is an institution, we believe, of British origin. We refer, of course, to the social festivity mnd importance of the ooouioe. The ' Santa Clans ' of Spain, ud the ' Kriss Kringle ' of Germany, are both the patron sainti of childhood on this memor able occasion. The empty shoe or sock are bung in the chimney corner, and childhood sleeps on in happy dreaming of the morrow when they will awaken and find these daily receptacles of tiny feet filled to the brim with sweetmeats, the benificent offering of the guardian angels of in fancy. But we do things perhaps on a wiser as well as a more general basis. We all become children once more. ** The cares of the world a...
