MUNICIPALITY OF GLAMORGAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 September 1860

I MUNICIPALITY OF GLAMORGAN. TO TUE EDITOR Of THE MERCURY. SIR,-Will you obligo by inserting the following letter in the ilfcrciirt/. I havo just read in your paper of tho 3rd a lottor of Mr. John Mitchell's, animadverting on a letter written by tho Warden of Glamorgan to Mr. Allison in referenco to tho working of municipal matters hero. It is the plain unvarnished facts contained in I tho Warden's letter that rouses Mr. Mitchell's in- j dignation and causes him to come forward to vin- dicate a system he has beon so long and so fami- liarly connected with. Whon I was taking tho petition round for signatures to ask the Governor to declare Glamorgan a Rural Municipality, Mr. Mitchell told ino tho peoplo were nil fools far signing it and did not know what they were about ; and considering it was signed by 70 persons out of 80, Glamorgan contains many fools and very few wiso men, though, as a matter of courso, Mr. Mit- chell munt bo ranked amongst tho latter.

OUR COAL FIELDS. -Nntu» bealla ,,, . OuiDltUB csso (ledit, si quia cognorcrlt uti. TO THE EDITOB OP THE MERCURY. I Every country possesses within itself the sources of its own prosperity and happiness, if its inhabi- tants knew how to avail themselves of the same. ¡ Mow that the long and costly pursuit, after gold ha« been allowed with some degree of reason to slacken, our colonists moy be induced to turn their ' attention to the hidden wealth which lies under ' their feet, by concerting measures to work the Coal and Iron which are to be found in so many parts of this Island. If these sources of lasting proeperity were developed, then indeed thousands of laborers would flock to our shores with a cer- tainty 'of procuring remunerative employment ; our colony would soon recover from its present depressed state, and wo should have no cause to covet the riches that flow from the gold fields of the adjacent continent.

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPT. 10TH. 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 September 1860

THE MERCURY. MONDAY MORNING, SEPT. 10TH. 18(30. DEFEKRINO our examination of the clauses of the Divorce Bill which próvido for the dissolu tion of marriage under certain circum- stances, we tako the present opportunity of explaining the operation of the new law, with reference to the protection of the earnings of married women. It will be admitted on all hands that in this direction 8 vast improvement has been made on the old state of things, and one of our most crying social anomalies cor* reoted. It ia this portion of the measure that probably gives it its greatest practical import- ance. We do not expect it will be found that the new power of divorce is very largely exercised. The law may be of use in affording relief in some indi vidual cases of great hardship. From time to time as cases of this character arise, we may anticipate that the Court will be resorted to for redress, But it is in the direo tions ia which it deals with certain minor defects io the old marriage law, that...

AMERICAN SLAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 September 1860

AMERICAN SLAVERY.   ----------- Although the great events which are now occurring in Europe receive and deserve our incessant attention, it is impossible not from time to time to turn our eyes to the New World, where problems are to be solved that nearly affect ourselves. It is a part of the destiny of this country that, from its world-wide dominion and universal interests, the concerns of no State are indifferent to it. A Frenchman or a Ger- man may concentrate all his attention on what is passing at Palermo, for he has hardly any relations with the world beyond the Atlantic or South of the Equator ; we, however, are continually reminded that we are not only a European Power, and must sometimes forget the revolutions and intrigues of Europe in observing the career ot our own race in newly-settled regions.of the globe. Perhaps the most im- portant foreign question for England is that of American Slavery. Our relations with the United States, through trade and community ...

ARE WE A MILITARY NATION? (FROM THE TIMES 22ND JUNE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 September 1860

ARE WE A MILITARY NATION ? (FROM THE TIMES 22ND JUNE.) Fifty questions wait to be answered, and we   are now taking at least one step to their   solution. Are we a military nation ? Ia there the stuff of a good soldier in an ordinary Eng-   lishman ? Can we trust to native prowess and the stimulus of circumstances for the defence of this country ? What hope have we in the event   of a sudden and treacherous invasion ? Can an   English gentleman of good common sense get up   tactics enough to escape blunders in the A B C   of warfare ? Are there more than three men in the country who can get 30,000 men out of   Hyde Park ? There will be not only the foes, but the " candid friends " of their country, pre- sent in Hyde Park next Saturday ; and if there be the least mischance, the most will be made of it. In common fairness there ought to be every excuse made for new levies, and offic...

QUEENSLAND. (FROM THE ARGUS CORRESPONDENT.) BRISBANE, August 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 10 September 1860

QUEENSLAND. (FROM THE ARGUS CORRESPONDENT.) BRISBANE, August 21. Upon the re-ossenibling of Parliament to-day, after a' fortnight's adjournment, we were favoured with two more instalments of the Ministerial land measure-a " Bill to provide for the Alienation of Crown Lands," introduced by the Colonial Secretary; anda "Bill to provide for the leasing of Crown Lands Previously Occupied," introduced by the Attorney-General. As these measures may be sup- posed to bo the result of a careful scrutiny into the working of tho land bills in the other colonies, and a remedy for those abuses which have raised such a clamour from the democrats and ultra-liberals thoroughout Australia, a somewhat detailed reiumrfof their several provisions' will no doubt bo interesting to your readers. I will, therefore, give you the substanco of the clauses in rotation, omitting the superfluity of legal verbiage which characterizes these documents, that you may bo ablo to judge how far the Bcheme put forth by o...

PROSELYTISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 11 September 1860

PROSELYTISM. English Papists appear resolved to keep abreast o! their Irish brethren in the work of proselytnjm. We doubt, indeed, whether any of the cases now pending at Dublin can be matched against the story just reported from Norwich, where the object of the conspiracy, instead of being a helpless orphan, is a young gentleman of 16, well-connected, and the son of an English M P. From the evidence already produced before the local magistrates we collect the most startling particulars. Mr. William Henry Vansittart, son of Mr. W. Vansittart, member for Windsor, was placed on the 25th of last month with the Rev. ' Mr. Hodgson, rector of Rackbeath, a quiet country parish, some four or five miles from the city of Norwich. The place, for reasons which we sh. ?. presently detail, had been especially selected as a safe and desirable one, and for ten days the young gentleman remained con- tented in all respects with his treatment and his position. On the eleventh morn- ing, however, after...

RICHMOND MUNICIPALITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HEECURY. SIR,-In looking over tho Advertiser of the first of the month, I noticed a letter signed Sharp Practico. In his remarks about tho Attorney General visiting Campania, he saw Mr. Ashton and myself, and he never mentioned any thing about tho Municipality of Richmond to bim, and all that transpired between Mr. Smith and myself was, when we once had it, we could not get rid of it again. I then asked hiin what thoy could assess us to, and to the best of my belief he stated 2s. Gd. in the pound. I then told him that I had as much as I could do with, and that I should be one against ii. Being in Richmond one sole day Mr. Butcher asked me if I should put ray name down; 1 said what'.for, he said for the Municipality, as he raid it could be done much cheaper than tho present system. I told hiin when he could satisfy me I would agree to it, and then he took the liberty of putting my name down without my sanction. And at the Appeal day of the ...
