Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 23rd January, 1857. THE MINISTERIAL CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 January 1857
&lt;@tpp£i (guarfctan, Friday, 23rd January, 1857. THE MINISTERIAL CRISIS. • On Tuesday, Gth inst., tlie Ministry were defeated on the motion for the second reading- of the Members Qualification Bill^ of which defeat they took no notice at the time, hut proceeded with the business as usual, although the abolition of the qualification required by members of the. Assembly upsets one of: the fundamental principles of the New Constitution. On Thursday, 8th inst., the Ministry were again defeated in reference to a balance of £2G2 2s., which had been paid to Mr. Grover, of the post office. At the general reduction .in the. various departments Mr. Grover had been dismissed, and received the salary for threo months, which I was given to all as a compensation. : Afterwards Mr. Grover had been appointed to another situation, and. the £263 3s. was the balance to which lie would have been entitled had he continued to hold his for-: mer appointment. This money had been paid by the Execut...

LITERARY EXTRACTS. 3IANUS CRIPT LETTER OLIVER CROMWELL. Messrs. Waller, the eminent autograph collectors, of Fleet-street, recently had one. It consisted of one page folio, dated Jan. 10, 1643. Letters entirely in the handwriting of this wonderful man are extremly rare:— " Mr. Hick, lest the soulders should, in any tumultuarie or disordly way attempt the Reformation of yourCathedrall Church, I require you to forbeare altogether your Quier service, soe unedifyinge and offen sive, and this, as you will answer it if any disorder should arise thereupon. 1 advise you to cattechise and reade, and expound the Scriptures to the people, not doubtinge but the Parlnt wth the advise of the As semblie of Divines will in due tyme direct you farther.

COLONIAL INTELLIGENCE. Horticultural.—A blight'of a most destructive character has made great ra vage with cabbages, swedes, &c., through out nearly , the whole district.

PORT ALBERT RACE COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 January 1857
PORT ALBERT RACE COURSE. | On Satui-day, the 10th inst., a meeting was held at Mr. Gellion's Port Albert Hotel for the purpose of appointing' trustees for the Port Albert Race Course. It appears that the Survej'or-General has signified to J. King, Esq., M.L.C,, that he is prepared to convey our present race couse to trustees when such are appointed; of course those interested were only too happy to complete so desirable an arrangement without delay. Jas. Davis, M.L.A., Win. Howden, John Hood, Ed. Martin,' and J. A. Stratton, Esqrs. are the gentlemen chosen as Trustees. If we might add a suggestion we would remark that if the trustees, when they are invested with the necessary powers, would fence in the race course and let it as a public paddock, they would confer a boon upon the Port Albert public. ■' ■ ■ •• '• I

POETRY. A SIMILE. BY LONGFELLOW. ' Slowly, slowly,'up the wall Steals the sunshine, steals the shade Evening damps begin to foil, Evening shadows arc displayed.1 Hound me, o'er me, everywhere, All the sky is grand with clouds, . And athwart the evening nir Wheel-the swallows home in crowds Shafts of sunshine from the west Paint the dusky windows red; Darker shadows deeper rest ■ Underneath and overhead. .' >■ Darker, darker, and more wan, . > In ray breast the shadows fall? Upward steals the life of man, As the sunshine from the wall, From the wall into the sky, : From the roof along the spire, Ah, the souls of saints that die Are but sunbeams lifted higher.

THE GRIZZLY BEARS OF CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 January 1857
THE GRIZZLY BEARS OF : CALIFORNIA. " When \ve consider'fhe weight of the grizzly, which often! reaches fifteen hun dred pounds, the enormous strength of which he is possessed; as evidenced by the limbs of trees which lie will wrench from the trunk, and his extraordinary speed and activity we have reiison (speaking as one who lives in his vicinity) for congratula tion that the animal is of inoffensive habits, and avoids the presence of man. The sole instance to the contrary is that in which you are unfortunate enough to invade the domestic circle of the she-bear when ac companied by her cubs : she invariably gives chase the instant she sees the intru der, who, if he is wise, will "draw a bee line" in an opposite direction. In running from a bear, the best plan is to turn round the side of a hill, for the bear having then as it were two short legs and two long ones, can't under such circumstances, run very fast. There- is but one sized tree that you can climb in safety in escaping fro...
VICTORIA LAND LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 January 1857

NORTH AUSTRALIAN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 23 January 1857
NORTH AUSTRALIAN EXPEDITION. The following letter from Mr. Gregory detailing the progress made by the North Australian Exploring Expedition will, we ave little doubt, be read with much inter est. Although, the Expedition has not realized all the expectations which were formed of it before setting- out, yet it has made very important discoveries and settled some doubtful points. Mr. Gregory reached 18 degrees 31 minutes S. latitude, and 130 degrees 44 minutes E. longitude, and. then came upon a sandy desert country which rendered further, progress impracticable ; but we are not convinced from this fact that the whole of the further interior is therefore a sandy desert, unfit for human habitation. That there is a'sandy desert country is beyond dispute, but that desert passed, may there not be as' good grassy land on the other side as ..Sir. Gregory had previously "piassed through" before reaching the barren waste avliich-arrested his' pro gress. . We do not mean to assert that such is...

Well'may, we;-term -what- we intend, to. state; a romantic; story, for. it is :qne >which; .outvies fiction itself, and will Iongvcontinue to be recited at many a fireside; on- winter evenings.

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. A RELIGIOUS BURLESQUE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 30 January 1857
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. A RELIGIOUS BURLESQUE. The following- extract from the Caledonian Mercury exhibits in graphic style the religious buffoonery for which there appears to have arisen a mania among the lower classes of London :— " When the present middle-aged mothers of Edinburgh were in their teens, they may have gone, or heard of others going-, with brothers and lovers, an excited and amused crowd, to hear a preacher who at times abruptly stopped in psalm or prayer and exclaimed, "The bawbees, methinks, I hear mair clanking- of cuddyheals on the floor than bawbees i' the plate." London is at present amused by such another comedian. Having covered the country with its comic literature, the, English'metropblis is now enjoying its comic pulpit; Gilbert a'Beckett,- just deceasedj gave; u's! comiic historiesj comic • grammars, arid a; comic Blackstone's Commentaries on'tlie laws of England; but his fun was seculfir1; lie presumed not to desecrate; auglit "sacre'd with funny pen and p...
