Emit* <&twrtttant Friday, 2nd JSTovember, 1855. REPRESENTATION. Another candidate lias started for the seat for Melbourne in the Legislative Council. Mr. Thomas llae professes' that he is induced " to stand" in opposition to Mr. Cruikshanks, on the ground.of the only point on which , lie differs* from ^ liim,: viz:—the squatting interests. The testing points for, representatives appear to be^v the; ecclesiastical grant: of £50,000, the educa-?: tional: systems national or/ denominational,' ; the licensed victualers interest ' or-'public ■ houses open on Sundays, and '-the land' question."

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. (?) [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 2 November 1855

OUR NEW CONSTITUTION. (?) - Som e two yenrS'ag'o we indulged in golden & dreams. : Great projects . -were entertained. and magnificent ideas contemplated which we: never realised^ and it is ratheivdoubtful whether we ever shall. In the midst of these fair reveries we woke, and found our 'selves surrounded hy evils neither antici pated nor contemplated. It was in the times of; those golden .days that our Con stitution was framed and passed' by a. Legislative tody—neither representing1 the intelligence nor the majority of. the Colonists; and the;; result, is we shall ,yet have to form a Constitution for ourselves. The present one is more disgraceful than creditable to the people of this Colony. Its absurd property qualifications for members and electors—its spirit of religious intolerance—and monstrous pension and civil list are fine samples of the forethought and intelligence which is to be found in St. Patrick's Hall^ when our legislators are busy enacting laws for the advan...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 2 November 1855

ENGLISH NEWS. ' The James Baines whose arriva hasl | been looked forward with great interest owing to the prevalent idea that she would bring news of importance connected with the war, arrived early on Tuesday morning 22nd October, in Hobson's Bay. She brings English news to the 5th August, but there is nothing of any in terest. There is no news of any impor tance from the Crimea. The Allies have carried their entrenchments so close to the Russian fortifications as to prevent the guns of the latter being depressed to in jure the assailants. The Russians had made some sorties but were repulsed. It was rumoured that there was to be an as sault shortly, and successful, or not, the siege would be raised. Active preparations are being made to compel Russia to keep an attacking- army in the Crimea. The health of the army was good. The Baltic Fleet have done nothing, with the exception of destroying- a few batteries. Some active preparations were however being' made to strike an impor tant...

Bad Excuse better than .None.— I have just been amused (says a letter from the camp) by the effort of my civil 'stirvn'iU-. to bhtain oTOg.for himself and 'my. soldier servant—St. Patrick's night being-set forth as the excuse.. I said " Go along-, neither of, you are ; Irishmen." . "Uh, no, sir,", was the reply "but Johnsons wife, is?" and as the argument was so conclusively Irish, it was, of course, irresistible. Amusement in North Am erica.— In Salem, Massachusetts, after the heavy and deep snowfall, a man was discovered sticking sticks into a huge "winter bank off snow."

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE NEW ALBERTON BRIDGE. Now that the warm and dry weather ap-   pears to be fast setting in, we think we shall only be doing our duty, as the con- servators of the public interests, if we di- rect the attention of the Central Road Board, or the Engineer in charge of the public Works in Gipps Land, to the state of this Bridge and its approaches.     On looking over a return of "Works and Expenditure for the year ending 31st Dec., 1854 ; laid upon the Council Table by the President of the Central Road Board, on the 27th March, 1855, we find the Bridge over the Albert mentioned as finished. Now we believe most people are in the habit of attaching importance to official Documents of the sort we have alluded to, considering the information contained in them of a reliable character, and, whilst willing to allow for all reasonable errors and omissions, we do not think they would   be inclined to pardon a statement tha...

POLITICAL APATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 9 November 1855

POLITICAL. APATHY. We could desire to see more interest manifested by the colonists on political questions than what as been evinced during1 tlie past two years. By this idea we do not wish to imply that the people should form themselves into cliques, factions, or parties, but simply to feel interested in the broad principle of equitable Legislation. Whatever may have caused that apathy, it has been highly detrimental to the best interest of this colony. To be governed properly is the rig-lit of every man, but it is also the duty of every one to see that he is rightly governed. A community ought always to be vigilant over their just rights and jealous of their infringement; for governments have always an inclination to encroach upon the liberties of the people. Political Apathy of a community opens the way to the inroads of despotism. It is the duty of every man having the smallest amount of political power, and few are there that have not, to feel some interest in the good governin...
