Both men are f the ' Bantam' school, the Jew being 20 years old, and weighing 8s t. 41bs., and his opponent being just ten years older, and four pounds lighter. We have but space to give the result of the battle, which after having been protracted to the Sind round, was given in favor of the Jew Boy. The winner was atte ided in the ring by Savage and a 'friend,' while the veteran Dick Hunt and Red Dan did the polit ?? fur tbe cooper.

We have read the last monthly, epitome of the history of the world — of the disruption of the great model republic without a drop of blood — of the heroic and unresisting sacrifices at Warsaw met in the first instance without a murmur, and, finally, with unparalleled forti tude language becomes feeble to express, to describe these events — this wondrous record. The American nation dissolved — the mighty, the incomparable — whose citizens have buen notoriously bombastic, and than whom (as it^ujpears. now) none were more prepared _ flBb the bread of humiliation when danger U^mihdcd. To the cynic — to the satirist — it is amusing — it is laughable to see this mighty bag of wind — tb^ffiilational Sir John Falstaff — contemptibly collapsing with almost idiotic absurdity.

THE COAL FIELDS OF GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 19 June 1861

THE COAL FIELDS OF GREAT BRITAIN* it was the belief of the Into Dr. Buckland thnt the supply yielded by our coul fields ?would be sensibly diminished in no very dis tant future. Mr. Vivinn holds that they ore, practically speaking, inexhaustible, and the Government and the legislature have recently ?based their proceedings upon the same view oi the question. Such, however, was the extreme diversity of opinions expressed upon the point during the debates on tho Com mercial Treaty with France as to throw doubts' upon tho authenticity of all the data on which those discordant opinions were res- ' pectively founded. Now, it ia surely of the highest importance that the public should Jitynow accurately whether or not this country ,r- '*'$&!, without irretrievable damage to its re Baurces, admit of the unrestrained export of coal ;T;and, therefore, Mr. Hull could not havejmore usefully amployed his talents, and *he unrivalled resources at his command, than in taken stock of the gre...
