Seite 356 - ... copper, silver, lead, marble, tin, slate, and opals ; wine — including all the varieties of the French and German vineyards — tobacco, and perhaps most important of all, wool. From Western Australia we find leather, timber, silk, coal, lead, and wines. Victoria, which boasts of 800 trees and flowering shrubs, exhibits also coal, wines, and cloth manufactures.
Seite 358 - England that from her loins have sprung a hundred millions — it may be two hundred millions — of men who dwell and prosper on that continent which the grand old Genoese gave to Europe. Sir, if the sentiments which I have uttered shall become the sentiments of the Parliament and people of the United...
Seite 386 - The band of the Grenadier Guards, under the direction of Mr. D. Godfrey, played a well-selected programme of music during the evening.
