THE INSTITUTE CONTROVERSY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 10 February 1866

THE INSTITUTE CONTROVEBSY. Most of our readers no doubt remember the ni isad venture of tlie first loving couple who claimed the Dumiiorw flitch of bacou. Tliey recollect liow affec tionately tlie youthful . Darby and Joan, who had been married a year; yet had I never exchanged two bickering words, I rode on one horse, saddle and pillion fashion, along rose-bordered roads and violet-scented lanes, , as happy as the birds which 'sang around and* above them. Ihey will remember with what glee 'they beheld the termination of their journey, and began to discuss the more advisable method of conveying their streaky and honorably won prize to the scene of its appropriate demolition. They will re collect, moreover, that then, atid on that 1 point, occurred the first and fatal contro versy which consigned the acorn-fattened delicacy to other palates, and no doubt, formed the prelude to a . caudley state of . things which, wherever it subsists, is greatly to be deplored.. ? ?

THE NEWS FROM EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 17 February 1866

TIIE NEWS FROM EUROPE. 'After a calm comes a storm' is a recognised adage as far as nature is con cerned; after a storm comcs a calm is at present equally true, as regards political matters. A few months ago each Mail brought us tidings of sanguinary battle*, sieges, retreats, and alternate successes and reverses in the stupendous civil war in America, and of wars and rumors of wars elsewhere. For the last month or two tho tidings have, happily, been almost devoid of such startling and horrifying details, ono sceno of carnago only having stained the monthly annals — that wliich occurred in the island of Jamaica. Unfortunately that affair assumes lar ger proportions and deeper dyes as the 1 . ' S ? 1 . 'acta connected with it becomes moro tilly developed. It is a most calamitous dfair in itself, and will bo tho source of ' much future 'mischief. An intimate nc | juaintance with Mr. Eyre's character and ' sentiments years' ago makes us loth to 1 telieve that he has acted with uimeccs ...

Tin Ellen Lewis has brought back tho Govern meat Resident and 38 other passengers? leaving 20 oifieers and men at the settle ment. It is now evident that Adam Ba} must be abandoned and another locality chosen. Thus has the greater portion of twt years been utterly wasted, while hundreds of intending settlers from Europe, India and Australia, who would by this timt have concentrated their capital, labor and intelligence on the spot, have been repulsed, and probably diverted from tin project for ever.

ASHWELL. (From a Correspondents -The farmers* destitution, or the Parliament's ?dissolution f The Pastoral Lease Bill, if -allowed to pass, will blight all those farmers' ?future prospects to. retrieve a position in the social scale with the rest of the community. Are there not many on the Plains turns to north of and north-west, whose seven years of hard toil has come to the small sum of three bushels of wheat per acre this vear? Take into calculation the farmer with 250 acres of { land, and suppose he has 125 acres of wheat, and he reaps 375 bushels off. the seed for the ensuing-year must be 125, which with grist 50, leaves for market 2u0 bushels, and this at the highest price this season amounts to just £80. There arc but few who have not 5s. per acre to pay, or some other equivalent to rent -£62 10s., wliieh just leaves these poor unfortu nates JE17 10s. to' pay for all other necessities «f cvery-day life.
