I From the Borne Hews.]' One Parliament is up, and Lord Derby's Calit.et is safe in office, until the spring. Little beyond tor si al work occurred in Parliament after the date of the last msii. The necessary bills were passed, and many good ones were withdrawn. No new general statement of principles or. intentions wa9 obtained! from the Conservative chiefs. Tbe Speech from the Throne could not be expected to contain anything, for it would not have been etiquette to make the Sovereign say that having recommended Reform, the House bad rejected the Bill, and in consequence the Ministry had been changed. The Continental war, Fenianisra, the cattle plague, the monetary ques tion, and the cholera made material for the prin cipal paragraphs. The prorogation tcok place o» the 10th.

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. There is certainly no subject cf public in terest exciting greater attention at the present moment than the unfortunate position of our Northern Territory affairs. A more deplorable result of administrative bungling and early executive incapacity it would be difficult to conceive. Ignorance, prejudice, and ob stinacy have begotten -.vaste, riot, and disaster ; and we have now as a colony to bear sneers, reproaches, and disgrace for the pig headed wilfulness of our rulers. So far wp don't refer to the present Government. They are certainly not as a Ministry responsible for the present dilemma, although the Chief Secretary and the Commissioner of Crown Laxds when in office in 1865 notoriously con stituted with the then Chief Secretary the majority of the Cabinet who induced every subsequent misfortune that has occurred. It has been too frequently stated to be misunderstood that Messrs. Ayeks, Blyth, and Milxe voted in Cabinet for the non-recall of Mr. Fixxiss i...

MR. REYNOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866
MR. REYNOLDS. We take little credit for foresight in having predicted the fate of Mr. Reynolds's no confidenee motion. No one expected anv other result, although people were certainlv surprised that even Mr. Reynolds should have been so petty and malicious in the remarks he thought proper to make. He has been famous before for attacks in Parliament upon gentlemen who conld not reply there, but his last performance of this kind simply verifies the expression that in the lowest depths there is a deeper still. Mr. Reynolds has effectually extinguished him self, and his once brilliant, but lately flicker ing light, has gone out in the fog of c;mplete self abasement. Tiie Poht Elliot Band. — We may now con . gratulate the district upon the fact that the Fort j Elliot Band is an established institution amongst us. | It numbers about 20 members, who are all in course of training under the presidency and leadership of Mr. Laurie.

THE DARLING. Mount Murchison, October 8. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 20 October 1866
THE DARLING. [ From our own Correspondent.] Mount Murchison, October 8. The river still continues to f;.il at the rate of two inches in twenty-four hours ; the navigation is now stopped, and the mail brings no word of any rise in the river above — a glowing prospect for those settlers who have this and last year's clip still on the stations. The steamer Lady Augusta and Mooige wanke have discharged their cargoes, aud will load up with the Mount Murchison wool, but they must remain and wait for a rise before they can start down. The Maranoa is stuck about 10 miles below this. We had a few hours' rain on Wednesday last, and the weather has since been cold and windy.
