JERRINGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 21 January 1856

JERRINGONG. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.]       The Crops. — The last few fine days, has brought the harvest nearly to a close in this part of the district, although a great deal of the wheat has suffered considerably from the continual wet weather. The potatoe and onion crop are now drawing the atten- tion of the settler, and the general report speaks favourably of the yield. Steam Communication. — The steamer Kiama called at our har- bour on Monday last, and she took off from our township a large amount of produce, but it is only a small portion of what she will   have to receive if the settlers can get a regular call here, and   which is very beneficial to them, particularly as some part of the road between here and Kiama is in a very bad state, more especially the hill near to Greenwood's Tannery — which has heen named by some persons travelling on the road as ' Breakneck Hill' and certainly it well deserves the name. ...

To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. Sir, — In looking over jour valuable paper of the 21st Jan., I was much surprised to sea tenders called for the repairs of some 'bridges on the Bulli Road, and signed by four persons calling themselves trustees ; but I have still to learn how, when, and by whom t.hav warn annoinfced as auoh. For. as a rate-oaver. I attended at the Police Office at the hour named in the notice, and, After 12 o'clock, as the chairman had not made his appearance, some of the magistrates adjourned the meeting for a week, con sequently myself, with many other qualified voters left; and much to the astonishment of myself, aad many others, we learn that four (three would have been sufficient) persons were appoint ed illegally as trustees ; and as I will never submit to be taxed illegally, I shall never pay one penny to the said self-constituted, for anght I know, trustees, and Bhall most certainly recommend my, friends to do likewise.

THE COMING ELECTION. To the Editor af the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 January 1856

THE COMING ELECTION. To the Editor of the Illay-arra Mercury. Sir— Although it is the frequently expressed opinion; of many good men that it is most presumptuous for a person, who has not had the very useful — but in their opinion indispensable advantage of a classical, or at least a liberal education, to attempt to convey to his fellow-men his opinion on any public matter, either through the medium or a speech, or through the medium of the press. I certainly can see no reason, why a man may not speak with as much plainness to a number of his fellow-men, as he usually does to a single fellowrman. To suppose then that a man should not use that instrument, (the tongue, or its substitute the pen,) which God has given him, for the conveyance of thought to Ilia fellow creatures, because he may not express them with gram matical accuracy, is about as absurd, as it would be to suppose that a man should not use his arms or legs, because he may not be pos sessed of the muscular strength of P...

This, fellow electors, is not a question affecting only a section of our community in which the extensive landowner — the wealthy - squatter, the Magistrate, sawyer, doctor, and clergy are alone con cerned.

EAST CAMDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 January 1856

EAST CAMDEN. We are glad to congratulate the constituency that Mr. David Waugh is now fairly in the field as candidate for the suffrages of the electors. He is an intelligent man, of liberal principles, and besides, one of ourselves. His private interests are identical with ours ; and we verily believe that in him the district would possess a most efficient, creditable, and independent member. We hear he proposes to attend public meetings to state his political views, but that he declines to canvass indi viduals. If elected he desires to be so, only, on broad public grounds.

WESLEYAN MISSIONARY MEETINGS AT KIAMA AND JAMBEROO ;''???? [from our own correspondent.] ? On last Monday, according to advertisement, the Wesleyan Annual Missionary Meeting was held in the Methodist Chapel. The attendance, which was numerous, consisted almost exclu sively of, i he adherents to Methodism. After the meeting had ? engaged on devotional exercises, conducted by the Rev. Messr. Wilkinson and Quick, it called on Mr. William Vance to .preside. Mr. Vance, in taking the chair, made brief allusions to the ?.unselfishness which, he said, was a God-like characteristic of .those societies that sustain a Christian mission to the heathen. The Secretary then read the report. This document inter ?estingly detailed the successes that have followed the labours of the Wesleyan Missions. The Rev. J. Watkin moved the first resolution : — ' That ?the report now read be .adopted ; and that the success of Christian missions in general, and of the Wesleyan missions in ?particular, calls for ...

THE PUBLIC ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 January 1856

THE PUBLIC ROADS. We are glad to call the attention of our readers to the public meeting held at Dapto, for devising some remedy for the deplorable condition of our great thoroughfares. Apathy has submitted as long as possible to the evil, but such is the height of the mischief that endurance is no longer possible. . The meeting was attended with excellent spirit, and we earnestly hope that it will not be permitted to .evaporate, but that the committee will be vigorously supported by the residents, and be enabled to effect permanent arrangements for the improvement of our roads. We trust, also, that in the expenditure of any imme diate monies, some competent person will be appointed to direct the right measures to be taken. In the past history of this Colony money has been in most cases use lessly, because injudiciously, expended. In nine cases out of ten, the evils of our roads, arise from the neglect of proper drainage. Without that is attended to all amendments become shortly des...

WHAT A EEPRESENTATIVE SHOULD BE, AND ? . WHAT HE SHOULD DO. ' In, the work now laid to our hand, that, namely, of electing- two representatives for the Parliament of New South Wales, there is a great need for the exercise of prudence, thorough — going honesty, and determination on the part of the electors. To them then we address our selves, and in what we are now to advance we beg1 our readers to remember that our motto is, ' Measures, not men.' We do not of course mean that any and every man will suit our tastes even though his opinions and ours should be identical. He must be a man of sus tained morality, of high-ruled integrity. Of this, however, in the sequel. What our motto means and is intended to convey, is this, that no man will receive our support, even though he were our brother, unless his political principles be such as we deem sound, and in their operation fitted to conduce to the welfare of this our country. In a word, we are determined to eschew as far as in us lies ...
