INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY. BEFORE Mr. Commissioner Browne. In re E. W. BOOTHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 July 1860
INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY. BEFORE Mr. Commissioner Browne. In re E. W. BOOTHMAN. Adjourned first general meeting, and for dis- charge. &nbsp; Mr. Graves for insolvent. &nbsp; Mr. Graves applied that the meeting for dis- charge be adjourned for a month. Mr. Milward thought both meetings ought to be &nbsp; adjourned, as there were other debts to be proved. Mr. Graves explained that in all probability he should have to apply for the dismissal of the peti- tion, as he hoped some satisfactory arrangement would be effected. The meeting for discharge was then adjourned till the 1st of August. In re W. STANFIELD. &nbsp; Adjourned first meeting, and for discharge. Mr. Crisp for insolvent. The following debts were proved :- Charles Fer- &nbsp; rier £11 for wages ; George Creed £12, for the same. (Ordered to be paid.) The insolvent's discharge was granted. In re HENRY BYRNE.

THE MERCURY. THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 5, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 July 1860
THE MERCURY. &nbsp; THURSDAY MORNING, July 5, 1860. ----*----- &nbsp; &nbsp; WHATEVER may be said of the " Folly" of the flush to the Snowy River, it is certain that the approaching spring is destined to witness that phenomenon. People will not be deterred by witty writing about popular delusions. So long &nbsp; as mining is a pursuit in Australia, a Rush will surely follow every discovery of a new gold-field supposed or reported to bo rich. Nor can any good end be answered by holding up the cafe of Port Curtis as a warning. Those who contemplate a move, can not unreasonably point to the actual escort returns from the Snowy River, as a great fact the significance of which is unmistakeable. What first shook public faith in the Fitzroy diggings, was the fact that no gold beyond mere pocket samples was &nbsp; brought down from them. It was said, and believed for a time, that the miners would not sell, questioning the sufficiency of the price offe...
BANKING AT THE SNOWY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 July 1860
BANKING AT TUE SNOWY KI VER. THE first really practical steps towards tlve establishment of those intimate commercial re-, lations between this Colony and the Snowy Uiver, from which there is every reason to hope wo shall derive advantiges commensurate with those accruing to the other Colonies, has been the oponing at Eden (Twofold Bay) and at Cooma (Kiandra] of branches of the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney. This Company are the agents ( t' the Bank of Yan Diemen's Land, and the colonists of Tasmania desirous of remitting to and from the Snowy Uiver, or obtaining drafts payable at either en.!, will thus be placed upon precisely the same footing as if one of our local Banks had branches of its own established at the places we have named. The charge for drafts will be one per cent., and the advantages procurable by that small premium will be incalculable. They will obviate all the risk and anxiety attendant upon carrying cash or gold about the person. Any oi.e proceedin to Eden...
LITURGICAL REVISION. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 July 1860
LITURGICAL REVISION. [TIMES.] The following remark is extracted by Mr. Davis &nbsp; from a pamphlet written a few years ago by the pre- sent Bishop of Loudon : " Of men below the age of 45 throughout the &nbsp; kingdom there may be few, but they are very few -and their number may be counted by units- whose mind is a sort of transcript of the 39 Articles and the Prayer Book, who have so habituated themselves from their earliest years to &nbsp; look upon all that they find therein written as infallible, that their thoughts have never ranged beyond the prescribed limits." Mr. Davis-not incorrectly, perhaps-detects in this observation, which is in form only the state- ment of a fact, a judgment, and that not a compli- mentary one to the "units;" and he is accordingly &nbsp; &nbsp; laudably anxious to show that his mind, at any rate, is not " a transcript of tho 39 Articles and &nbsp; the Prayer Book." He has in this spirit written a very z...
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE LECTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 5 July 1860
MECHANICS' INSTITUTE LECTURES. "We are glad to see that the Committee of the Mechanics' Institute at length find themselves in a position to announce a programme of Lectures for the Winter Season. We understand that "the &nbsp; prevailing epidemic" is responsible for the succes- sion of disappointments of which complaint has been made. We trust that the course which will be resumed this evening will not be subject to any fur- ther interruption. The subject announced for this &nbsp; evening's lecture, which will be delivered by Mr. T. L. Bright, is 'The Spaniards in Peru."

A. & I. O. O. F. LOYAL PERSEVERANCE LODGE. The Third Anniversary Dinner, to celebrate the Institution of this Lodge, took place at Mrs. Barnes's, the Black Prince Inn, Elizabeth-street, yesterday evening. The Brethren and Visitors assembled in the Lodge Room, which was adorned by the handsome Banner of the Lodge and tastefully decorated for the occasion, and at eight o'clock a choice and most excellent Dinner was served. The Chair was occupied by Bro. N. G. Willing, supported by Bros. G. G. Rowlands and Secretary Broome, and Bro. Dr. Bright jun., and the Vice- Chair by Bro. V. G. Jones, supported by Bro. S. W. Aldred, and Bro. Paynter, and between thirty and forty Brethren and Visitors partook of the hand- somely furnished banquet. A letter from the Grand Master was read, ex- pressing his regret at not being able to be present, as he was suffering from the prevailing epidemic, "Influenza." &nbsp; After the withdrawal of the cloth and the intro- duction of some first ...
NAPOLEON'S CREED. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860
NAPOLEON'S CEEED. [timks.] Machiavelli, in that handbook for Sovereign Princes, which is so often quoted, has laid it down, that " a prudent Prince cannot and ought not to keep his word, except ft \\er\ he can do it vyithout injury to hihiself, or when the circumstances' ündeir whioh he contracted the engagenient'slill exist." Now, considering tho circumstances of the present moment in co» nexion with this canou of government, let us inquire what aro the possibilities and what is tho duty of Napoleon III. in this matter of the annexation of Savoy and Nice ? It is hayond all doubt that our great ally is n prudent Prince. Ile has given a thousand examples of his pru- dence since his sojourn at Ham, .and, if great astuteness be any proof of prudence, ho lias afforded an egregious example of that quality iu his most recent bargain with our English treaty-mongers, As a, priulent Prince, 'there- fore^ he has naturally been generous of his " wonts." He has promised Italy to free her from t...
THE FATE OF SAVOY. [TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860
THE FATE OF SAVOY. [times.] After tho Jong susppnsp as to tjm intentions of Fi ance and the fate of Savoy, we have the con- solation of arriving at one historical certainty. It is that Franco lias deliberately acted in a way which, had wo known it, would have pre vented the íatificatioii of the Commercial Treaty. For tins wo have the testimony ol England, who continually challenged France in order to clear her own position afld to' wipe away the suspicion qf connivance ; and the still more unequivocal testimony of france, who cpngtantly refused to admit the design of annexation. )Vq had puspißions, am} it was knovvu that wp had suspicions. The moment tlioge Ruspicion3 had been changed for a certainty, thine was no doubt on either side that we must stand aloof from France, not to he, eveu hy adverse con- struction, a pai;ner in her policy. The whole nation, ßovernnidntj Parliament, and l^ress, in duty bound not to be too careless of their honour, jealous for treaties, and perhaps, lo...

THE AMATEUR PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860
THE AMATEUR PERFORMANCE. TnE continued indisposition of several of the gentlemen who sustained the principal characters in the late Amateur Performance renders its repetition for the present impossible and the intention of repeating it has, therefore, been re- luctantly abandoned. The influenza which has swept over the Island with so much virulence during the last few days seems to have lost none of Its power. Those who were the first at- tacked, and who have succeeded ia mastering the disease, will long feel its enervating influ- ence, whilst additional victims are being every day added to the list. Not only tho Amateurs but largo numbers of those who intended honor- ing tho performance have been rendered wholly unfit to quit their homes ; so that were the former able to comply with the universally ex- pressed call upon them for a repetition, compli- ance would fail to accomplish the purpose for which that call was made. We do l^ot remember for many years past to have seen the good...

BROAD MARSH STEEPLE-CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 6 July 1860
BBOAD MARSH STEEPLE-CHASE. This ovent took place last Friday, but the at- tendance was not so numerous as was expected, Tho country selected was very heavy in eonsc quenco of the late rains, and tho fences, (fourteen in number) with the exception of one dead wood fence wore stiff posts aud rails. Some diflieidty occurred in procuring riders, as the advertised weight was lOst. Tibs., lint after a considerable delay the Stewards, with tho sanction of the owners altered tho weight to list ; even at this the weight could not bu put on, as nearly all tho horses earned over weight, and Romeo more than seventeen pounds. The start was effected about half-past 2 o'clock p.m., Forester talcing the first jump at a rattling paco closely followed by Sepoy, Randall, and Romeo, liogio O'Bucluin bringing up the rear ; this order was maintained te tho second fence where Logie declined the honor of following suit. The third mid fourth fences wore well taken Forester still having a strong lead to the ...
