ACTOJIS' FACES. Cakuick s face iu pictures or busts is truly remarkable, much, of course, be ing owing to his foreign blood, his father being a Frenchman. It is a massive facer, not fat, though rounded, with a quick vivacity iu tbe movements of the neck ; eves of startling brilliancy, wjili a darting searching expression, which he was fond of applying; with recesses about his lips, whole lurked the humours of comedy ; while iu his brow, full and over-arching, lay vast tragic forces. The muscles of bis cheeks seem flexible to an extraordinary degree;, and were as -expressive as any other part of his action ami his voice. These were prodigious advantages ; but it is often forgotten that voice and gesture are but oik; department of acting and expression. Keinble and his sister were not so fortunate in the flexibility of their faces, but tliey supplied the want by graudeur of tones and bearing, by the majesty which breathed from their figure and glances.

VALUE OF QUINQUENNIAL PARLIAMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 15 March 1879

VALUE OF QUINQUENNIAL PARLIAMENTS. No Parliament should be elected for so long a period that the represented would be unable to judge of the nature of important measures to be brought under the consideration of its represen tatives. Consultation iu advance is the only consultation worthy of the name. And again, it is a very remarkable ami gratifying fact, that amidst all the hot discussions in the House of Commons there generally prevails a very good feeling amongst its members sitting upon both sides. Yet no one can doubt that if any feelings of animosity have been engendered by the hot party discus-ions which might arise during a long Parliament of six or seven years tliey would in all probability, nay, al most to a certainty, he appeased and weakened by more frequent Parlia ments. And iu respect to the influence of the, nation iu foreign aflaii-s, the present system of long Parliaments is not without its effect in relation to the influence of England on the continent of Europe.
